These seeds, my first 'private breeder' offering, were made by reversing the Pre-98 Bubba Kush clone with colloidal silver. The pollen was collected and another plant of the Pre-98 Bubba was pollinated. The bubba is one of my favourite smokes, very satisfying, a real earthy, coffee, slightly spicy aroma/taste and a high that is relaxing and thought-provoking. Most people take it about 9 weeks although the window is more like 8-10. Yields are moderate but quite high for a real 'kush type' broadleaf/indica plant.
Bubba is said to be reasonably true breeding so the S1s should be fairly uniform whilst offering subtle variations. Recently I read that TomHill has ditched his Pre-98 bubba for an S1 of the cut that is called the 'Bombthreat' - nice to know that there is the possibility of something even better than the original from these S1 seeds.
The making of the seeds was documented in my 'low wattage' thread linked in my sig.
I did a small germination test of 4 seeds
all of which came up -
here they are 5 days ago, the difference in height was caused by some seedlings being under brighter light than others i think...
and here they are today, they were repotted into some ferted soil today too.
the 40 x 5 packs that i sent in sold within a couple of hours and i would like to thank everyone for the support, and say sorry to those who were disappointed. As you will see below, more seeds are hopefully on the way.
anyone who bought seeds and has pics can post them here, or post your own thread in the forum, or post a link here to your grow diary. im really excited to see what comes up!
here's a pre-98 bubba cut that i vegged earlier
this was flipped to 12/12 today and will be pollinated for more seeds. ive vegged it up pretty big and hopefully i can get a better yield of seeds this time
