I think the taste may have come from the NL and I believe that most, if not all the plant's I mentioned, contain NL, so was surprised that Chim's hash plant has a taste he considers bland, maybe the Blockhead will improve this? I bet it does
Can you tell us about your water only mix? Because, brother, they are looking Great!
I think, like you say, that the NL in Sensi’s HP (and others) helped with taste - I grew it too. I could be mistaken but I think their HP is NL x HP. Could be mistaken on this as well since it’s speculation on my part, but I’m guessing Chimera’s HP is more “pure” ... (?)

Even though it's great that there's options for cookies, chem, diesel and og, I also love the range of old Canadian classics - Soulshine, Sweet Skunk, SPG, Blockhead, Blueberry. Plus, a decent amount of landrace origin stuff - Highland Mexican, Nepalese, Burmese, Congolese, Hawaiian.
It's all funky an cool in my book
I second this
I’ve never been one to chase trends. I lost a seed vault (or rather a “friend” did) that was years in the making. One line I had worked for seven generations. Only in the last four years or so have I been rebuilding. And I’m looking forward to adding lots of the Canadian classics from Canadian breeders. I agree that it’s great that those other options are out there, but I’ve always enjoyed sharing something new (to them) with others. When you break out something that’s not the usual they’re used to, and it gets their attention... that makes me smile. “What is this?!?” I love hearing that! And when it doesn’t have the usual names attached to it, they just look at you funny, but then ask if you can get them some.
Thanks guys for the kind words. It’s a simple Fox Farm recipe. I grow from seed and have found it overall to be very accommodating - and more importantly, easy.
1 bag Ocean Forest
1 bag Original Planting Mix
1 bag Light Warrior
1 cup Happy Frog Fruit & Flower
8 to 10 quarts of perlite
Mix it all together and time transplants to coincide with nutritional needs. It’s water only but I like to add Maxicrop and some Superthrive or ThriveAlive. And depending on how things are looking I might add a tea of budswell in flower.
