First off, happy New Year everybody. In what I hope is a new years day tradition, I agonized over what to sprout next while I was cleaning the tent out. All the while under the influence of the Citra paradiso number 1, which had the less fruity spear shaped buds. Can't quite give you guys a good description taste wise, other than to say it is not nearly as fruity as the other Citra paradiso. The effect however is stronger and longer lasting. Not as smiley, but very cerebral with excellent focus and a desire to keep moving. I also found sounds to be especially crisp and enjoyable. A great companion for my morning yoga. Very easy to stay focused on what your body is feeling and respond accordingly. Definitely won't be throwing these jars in the compost
Now on to the next round
After the first round and reflecting on it I was thinking that I should be more efficient with the next round and focus on one or two varieties. Well then I whipped out the old movie collection and completely disregarded that sensible advice. This round won't be especially filled with the narrow leaf varieties. The first round has given me plenty of energizing up vibes. I also need these to be finished, dried and out of the guest bedroom for the spring/summer guest avalanche. I plan on running sweet skunk and incense haze hybrids for my late summer into fall crop when it will be easier to control temps in the house and tent.
As for this round I read through some of the older threads for some inspiration as to what to pick and decided that I would have to throw some mentalfloss seeds in a shot glass and see what pops up. It seems to be one of the quintessential Chimera strains. And who doesn't love a little mystery in a strain? Also from the older end of the catalogue I put three c-plus in water for good measure. I'm hoping to get one fun and fruity gal out of there. I also germinated about ten ancestral skunks. If one is a lady and makes it to maturity I'll be tickled pink. I got the sweet skunk xl as a freebie with one of my orders and decided to plop one of those in some water to represent the sweet skunk lines, and see what it looks like with a little more beefing up. I really loved the lullablox from the firs run and so I germinated a few of the Domxblockhead (which I think is Schnazzleberry # 4, correct me if I'm wrong). And because I don't think I've seen any documentation of it I threw some Kingxblockhead in water. Hoping for some potent day enders from the last two varieties. I can't believe I din't pop anything with grapefruit in it, but we shall what actually grows out of all this nonsense. Although I've got the Soulshinexblockhead slated to keep the tomatoes company in the greenhouse this summer. Can't wait to see what everyone else has planned to grow in this new year.
