A Tale of Two Sisters

I just thought I'd share my two Orient Express plants. To say they are two different phenotypes would be an understatement. Kinda like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito in Twins. Or a female version of Laurel and Hardy



Here's a solo shot of the tall sister at 54 days of 12/12. I'm using a 400wt HPS and the Hempy bucket method...I think my buckets are 5 qt or 1 1/2 gallons, I don't remember. There are seven other plants of assorted variety in my small little space (2' X 3' or thereabouts) so conditions are crowded. Still, I'm thrilled with how this plant is coming along. She was a finicky eater from the beginning and I could never tell whether she was nute deficient, overnuted or ph locked. At the same time, she is a monster producer given the environmental conditions. And a beautiful plant.



Here's a bud shot. I wish I was a better photographer but these buds are beauties.



Here's the little sister. An entirely different plant. She's short and squat and incredibly leafy. The leaves are long, thin and delicate. What the mad profusion of leaves hides, however, is a massively thick cola and all the side branches that are bursting with bud I should add that I kept them purposefully small because I wanted to have room for the nine plants in the grow space. I'm delighted with how she is turning out.



I haven't sampled yet. I can't wait, though. They are so different and yet each spectacular.

My only question now is how long to let 'em go. At this point, I'm thinking maybe another week to ten days but feel free to pipe up and share your thoughts.

Wow Mayan, those are certainly opposite ends of the spectrum. They both look good. They look like they may need about a week; but that is personal preference.

Mayan I'm curious as to what they smell like.

Hey, scaramanga...thanks. Yes, I've started flushing. My birthday is next week so I think I may be spending the day wet trimming. That will be nine weeks on the nose. The trichs seem pretty cloudy....and I prefer an up high to the amber couchlock. So, they are going to go through the transformation sooner than later.

As to the odor..I'm not very good at describing the odor and they are growing in this ridiculously crowded space (2'X3') with several other strains (Nebula, Swiss Bliss, Delahaze, Bambata) so it is difficult to hone in on their scent. But I'll try to keep a nostril out and start paying attention.

Good day mayan,

Yes, looks like you got very different expressions in your OE grow. The short squat chinese indica pheno is usually the most frequent (aprox half plants would express this structure), it's usually leafier and fast flowering.

The taller VB structured pheno is less leafy, higher yielding and takes 2-3 weeks more to finish than short chinese pheno. It's less frequent (aprox 20% or less).

Both phenos share same aromas, kind of effect, ....

Bocil, those are some nice pics. I'm just starting to sex mine at the moment so its always nice to see some that are a little more advanced.

I particularly like the sativa leaf form with the tight internodal spacing.

High bocil

They look healthy, with enough budsites to give a nice yield! Looks like he did a late topping on a tall one :smile: Thank your friend for the pics!
Best wishes.
