So from the warlock and cheese blockhead crosses I ended up with one female each. Both are growing vigorously and starting to stretch so I may flip them in the next two weeks. I'll take cuttings today and up pot them to their flowering containers so they can acclimate. The warlock has low odor and is moving along with no issues. The cheese is different in every way. She has a loud green penetrating cannabis smell. Reminds me of a God Bud plant I had many years ago which also stunk in veg. She also has a unique main stem unlike anything I have seen before. The main stem is flatter than it is round and from the base has a twisting spiral structure with significant side branches along its length.
Greetings Jahaze! The plants are looking good as usual. I am interested in the Cheese x Blockhead cross as I also have one in veg. Am also growing a fondness toward the plant and praying I have a mother. Something tells mi that this is a winning combo. The Cheese x SS is a joy and I have one if bloom. Happy growing!
Great that you're growing the Fighting Buddha. It's got a very pleasant high and a sweet smell.
The cheese x blox meristem looks like a mutation to me. I've seen that flattening before on plants other than cannabis. Be interesting if the cuttings exhibit the same trait. Glad that it has the potential to be a stinker though, always a good sign.
So I can finally confirm 4 females from the 10 seeds I started for this thread. I have 3 fighting buddha and 1 jack PINE. Sadly, both ss x jacks were males and 3 pine males. Luck of the draw i guess...no matter though since I have 3 burmese gals to choose from so all is good. They were cloned and cut back to veg the lower branches a bit more before they go into flower. The jack pine was cut back really short to keep an even canopy and will probably go into flower first in hopes of even growth and light penetration. I'll post pictures soon so we can see the development. The other plants cheese x BH, warlock x BH are in flower now and are getting used to their new home. Both the mental floss x bb and slk x BH ran into some environment problems because I mixed some new store bought soil and mixed with my recycled soil and I initially thought I had a nute lock out issue but it seems more like a deficiency instead. I'll post those pictures along with the reasoning for my conclusion tomorrow but they have started flower so all is not lost. Lastly, of the 2 melody kush x BH only one made it to the flower room and the other was scrapped because of poor grow pattern. I did clone it so it will eventually make its way forward but right now she's a no go. The last one is doing fine and in flower...see below:
This is the MFxBB I put in flower about 5 weeks ago. I had this and the SLKxBB in the back of the room in a led setup and didn't notice any change in leaf color (reddish/purple lights) until about 10 days ago when another plant with only 25 days in had devolved more buds structure than either the MFxBB or SLKxBB. Sure enough when I pulled them into daylight I noticed both plants were lime green all the way down. Initially I thought it was a nutrient lock out because I had mixed my recycled soil with store bought soil and figured it was too "hot". I ran RO water (7.0pH) and checked the run off for pH and TDS for salt buildup. One plant had Ph or 6.4 and 235ppm, and the other 6.6 and ppm reading of 195ppm. So nothing really what I consider dangerous level...if anything the ppm was on the low side all things considering. Looks like my container was really low on nitrogen and maybe Mg. I have begun the process of very low levels of NPK in solution (200-300ppm) and both plants are starting to show improvements. Although they have some ways to go the plants have begun greening from bottom up and the newer growth is also green. Once I get to week 6, I give them a slightly bigger dose and then ease off again ass I dont want to prolong flowering but do want bud development...tricky dance. Anyhow, first up is the MFxBB week 5.
This the second plant that ran into a problem with the medium...SLK x BH at week 5. It has better bud development than the mental floss and is producing better resin distribution. She has responded better to the low levels of npk but its not surprising as some BB crosses I done are somewhat sensitive to nuts..even at lower levels. Anyhow, here she is...
This is one of the pure kush plants from a few cycles back that I have been toying with to see how she does in my room. This is the 4th time ive grown her. I have decide not to keep her in favor of her sister. Although she is a much better producer than the keeper, the other plant just checks all the right boxes for me. Anyhow, this plant is at week 12. I decided to grow her as a pole and began to feed her again towards the end of her cycle to see how she managed. The plant was done at week 10. I was surprised at how thick she got and how quickly she produced new flowers. Without question, this plant is a BH leaner. She has a strong fuel smell that is tempered with a sweetness which takes out any acrid smell. Taste wise, its kush all the way with a nice fuel and a sweet earthy flavor but the fuel dominates. Although you cant really tell from the photos but she is super resinous and thick underneath the new growth. Additionally, she is mostly amber in resin inspection underneath so its time to chop. She is chunky all the way down!
Shmavis, ULMW, Kalbhairav, and bsgospel thank you for your kind words. This next plant is the same melody kush x BH I previously posted but at day 25. this is the plant to prompted me to check on the SLK and Mental Floss as it went in 2 weeks after and is now shooting past in terms of development. She is starting to develop and I suspect is going to be a 8-9 week plant if all goes well.
I wasn't going to post these because they were started a couple cycles ago but never flowered due to room crowding and then a interest in other plants. Finally got around to flowering. This the simply irresistible cultivar. Haze 1 on left and haze 2 on the right. Both plants are same age and flipped at the same time. As you can see the haze 1 plant is much faster and packing flowers and has more of a SS appearance. Below is the group shot and the slower haze 2 plant which I'm already considering culling.
