I hope everyone is having a good spring so far. I've been working to get my timing back and my plants healthy. It's been a while so let's get caught up. For the last year or so I'd been growing clones of seed plants that I germinated and I was having some good runs but I was a little unhappy with how much time it was taking to grow a seed plant to the point where it could be sexed and cloned. I also felt like I was wasting a lot of space with having the extra plants around. The last couple rounds have been rounds from seed but I've found that it's even harder to keep a schedule growing from seed, especially new strains. So I'm going back to what was working well a few months ago and growing from clone again.
These plants (2) cookie wreck X LBL and (1) bubba kush X LBL are in week 7 and are from seed. I had some naners in weeks 3 and 4 but was able to pick tham off and I don't think I'll see many seeds. All the male flowers were at the very bottoms of the plants. These look like they might go another 3 weeks. They are getting some nice purple to some of them. Here are a couple pics.
The next round is going to be 4 gorilla bubble clones cut from my 1 GB mom that I labeled the gorilla girl. I grew 1 of her on my last round and I'm looking forward to seeing how she does with 3 sisters filling the tent. Probably another week or so and they will be ready to go into the flower tent.
And for the run after next I'll be giving a first go at cobra lips by Bodhi. Cobra lips is chem3 X appalachia. I'm looking forward to growing a chem cross again, and even more to smoking it. Not sure how many lady's I have yet so we will see how this sets up for that run. I'll have to get them sexed and take cuts in about 3 weeks for them to be ready in time, which seems doable.
I'm pretty happy about what has been going on in the jungle for a good long while now. It was just about 3 years ago that I was setting up my first tent and grow light and starting my first real grow. The first couple grows were a huge learning experience for me. I got some great advise and encouragement from people here on icmag and pop_rocks and soon after that Rodehazrd among others. I'm glad that I've taken this journey into growing and I hope things just get better and better. Thanks y'all...Fiddy.
