Cool Hail Hydra!

I'm out of space for albums so I guess i'll have to start posting more.

I'll document some of my grows in here. Earlier stuff is in my journals.

First up is Foghorn. I can't remember the exact cross right now but the mom is a selected cut of GoldRush x (a male).

I popped 5 seeds, only 4 came up.

they seemed pretty uniform after 1 week. 2 distinct phenos. 2 wider leaf and 2 skinnier leaf.

Wide Leaf

Skinny Leaf

Somewhere near or about the week 2 mark I noticed they were getting distinct.
the skinny leaf phenos showed a larger space between the leaflets than the wider leaf pheno. the wider leaf phenos also have a characteristic crinkle in the leaf of the second set of leaves.




skinny leaf pheno. notice the wide gap between leaflets.



wide leaf phenos. notice the distinctive leaf crinkle and the look similar to strawberry leaves. already they have a strong fruity berry smell like I've noticed on all the indica's I've grown. sativa types seem to smell more citrus on the rub.

In week 3 somewhere one of my wide leaf phenos suddenly drooped overnight. I dunno why. I suspect fusarium or the nematodes I find attacking my weaker seeds that I plant and never come up. you can see it in the upper right of this pic.


closer look. just wilted right the fuck up overnight like all the fusarium pics I've ever seen. there was some sticky bubby looking crap right at the stem where it met the soil too. really grossed me out. I started to toss this shit right in the trash but I am a sucker for challenges. so I decided to try and nurse it back to health. more on that one later.


the rest are looking healthy. skinny leaf pheno on left / wide leaf on the right.


skinny leaf phenos smells real..."bitter" and "dark" closest I can relate it to is skunky ass and burnt rubber.


my remaining wide leaf pheno. smells real fruity and dank. like deep berry smells.

where am I at... 11 posts...something told me make a new post for each pic but I don't get down like that lol.

Around week 4-5 they were pretty rootbound and I had to water 2x a day. since space would be clearing in flower soon I decided to pot em up.


before in their 4x4 squares.



after in their 5.5" squares


Wide Leaf

Skinny Leaf

Both heavy indica plants with lots and lots of branches. in fact i'm sure these are about the fastest branching plants I've ever grown. pretty much all identical in structure to the mom plants. that one's got some good strong genes in her or maybe I matched her with a good male. I have to go figure out which male I crossed to make these seeds.
not the best pics but you can probably see theres a little space in between the fingers of the skinny leaf plants, whereas on the wide leaf plant the leaflets are all overlapping heavily and some are crowding each other to form the leaf towards a cone shape (largest lower fan on left side of wide leaf, and the uppermost fan on right side).

all are giving off a deep funky skunky smell at this point. making my carbon filter work overtime. I don't even need a stem rub. these bitches stink.

fast forward some weeks I wasn't too concerned about keeping track of since veg is veg. and because I didn't feel like pulling these fuckers out of my tent to take pics.


I put the largest most space taking one in flower tent since a space opened up and it was looking male but I wasn't sure and I needed confirmation before wasting my time up potting a male just to chop it down a couple weeks later.
you can barely make out his skinny leaf sister in the background sticking her head in for a photobomb.
confirmed male so will be getting the chop treatment in about a week or so right before the sacks start to open. i'll collect the pollen to dust his siblings.

nice structure very close stacking and minimal stretch.

very beautiful leaves. I hate to have to chop it.

This one I call F-3 i'm not 100% sure what it is, either a seed that fell out of my Florida Diesel #3 or any number of seeds that didn't sprout and I gave up on and tilled into another pot of soil. anyway once day while watering my floradiesel#3 I see a little sprout popping out of the dirt near the edge of the pot so I carefully remove it and repot it into it's own pot.

this was several weeks ago. like 8 or so. this was a long hard road to get to where we are now. this plant was very touchy and roots so slow I accidentally overwatered it several times and had to put it on life support to recover it. these are probably the prettiest pictures it had from when it was a seedling. but all babies are cute right?


this pic here is probably like 4 weeks after those above. barely on it's 5th node and still struggling. very pale and lime green no matter what you feed. no branching at all. as sativa as I've ever seen a plant in a long time.

fast forward a bunch more weeks...lets call it 5 more. she's finally strong enough to pot up again, and i'm sick of looking at it in my veg tent all pale and frail looking so I pot it up into a bigger pot. not sure what the volume on these are. either 1 gallon or 1.5 gallon. 7" square tapered pots, 8" tall? I think she must have shown sex I typically don't transplant to final container till after I see sex. Anyway she is a girl and with flowering comes the first signs of this not being a hemp plant lol. as in it finally has something coming from the few nodes on it.

I predict she's a heavy sativa leaner. she stretched like a motherfucker in the first 3 days alone. like seriously this plant was roughly 8 inches when I flipped. and 8 days into flower she's over 2 foot and aiming for the bulb.

she's slowing down now. typically I top plants when I flip em to cut down on the upwards stretch and redirect that energy to the branches. but only the clone plants. the seed plants I like to run untopped so I can see their structure.

it might be a floradiesel. it's growing identical to the mom and grandma structure wise.

for reference the grandma

mom and aunts. i'd be lying if I said I could identify which one I called #3.

and here we are on day 8 of flower and I must say i'm impressed so far. so many times I thought to myself i'll just chuck this one, or I bet it's a male, but here we are just barely started flowering and i'm already seeing frost out to the tips of the bud leaves. nothing noticeable in the smell dept yet. but this strain hasn't exactly been a stinky one. the mom smells like cherry pie filling, that artificial cherry smell, some sort of wood and varnish and fresh roses. not a strong smell at all, but very unique. the grandmother was a light floral arrangement and citrus smell. original cross is called Atlantic Diesel (ECDxAtlantic Storm) East Coast Diesel, not ECSD which is I dunno original diesel? crossed to a local outdoor strain called atlantic storm. hard to find any info on either of those strains. best guess is ECD = ECSD or OriginalDiesel. Atlantic storm only mention I can find is that it was from the marc emery seed catalogue.
only time will tell if the rest of the Floradiesel seeds I made on purpose are worth popping.
