(I'm just here to have fun and make a thread that is both simple and complex, yet able to include up to 50% more member participation than otherwise.)
One thing that has Always perplexed me is that DJ Short never identified a Red stem inside the pure sativa 60's oaxacan, or the strains flo, f13 and VLuna!
-He mentions coloration traits only when they are 'ever-present' such as calyx 'stripes' in his 90's blue velvet.(Red, lavender)
-He mentions dark-colored calyx tips of red and purple as a 'constant-feature' in his sativa starter strain, the 60's oaxacan.
-He mentions 'hues' of purple which are 'exhibited' (?)Within his original Blueberry.
-He tells his classroom in Cali that Red Pigment inside a trichome's venation often correlates with *Cherry flavoring(aromatics).
-He spoke of a purple trichome inside someone's F13, which was a sweet n' sour product,...
*Occasionally reported by members is that F13 will have 'notes' of either vanilla, fruit, citrus, berry(grape), floral(rose) or cedar(conifer) and sometimes even sharp urine, sour vomit and musk(mushroom/forest floor/socks)
Dj said something about purple tinted water that resulted from the making of Bubble Hash from a Blue Satellite(version 1), but he was referring to trichome pigmentation once again.
I've recently learned that particular oaxacan cultivars(strains) will often sport a green stem for when it's vegging, then swap the color to red or purple for flowering.
Interesting to me, is that the aforementioned 'green' stems(95%green), can transport Red juice up the plant, inside the stalk/stem...to any body part it wants(discrete, invisible,stealth!)
Therefore, I do understand the 'Why', that DJ speaks consistent volumes about just caylx and trichome color-eventualities! ...rather than blab and blab about every beginning or mid-stage color trait he's witnessed.
Dj rather-stands out as preoccupied with 'what' happens inside the last week of flowering.
In Conclusion, my initial highlighting of a couple distinct associations with RED stems(in any plant stage), was to focus on, or i.d. what single trait seems to precipitate an Alert and Clear 'head'. -A reliable calling card, if u will
For example, I harvested a Blue Heaven cut(purple stem) which was somewhat spacey rather than Clear. Iow, it was not 'crisp' or crystal.
...And I found the same spacey head in a purple stemmed F13 and Vanilluna.
I did find the crisp F13, and it did have red nodes, but a mostly green stem, and I did not feel any 'body'.
-The high was light and up, but the plant was an intersex...as F13 has some unrefined roots (earlier filial gens) with many 'raw' traits occuring, from very old seed stock, which....likely doesn't know what year it is, to behave in a different way as an indoor zombie with a singular sexuality in a Big Bud corporate standardized world.
