AE77 is a particular clone of CaliO (California Orange) that was gifted to Cannacopia seeds by Chimera. They used it to do the cross to Deep Chunk. I don't know a ton about it, but it supposedly reeks of oranges and the smell carries well through crosses. From what I know there is some Sativa in there. Here is a thread on it...
Orange Grove wasn't created by me, it was gifted to me by another grower on the forums that did a LVPK cross to Hindu Kush then crossed that to Cannacopia's cross. The result is Orange Grove...The seeds I'm running now are f2's (Orange Grove X Orange Grove) made from last years crop.
I haven't made it out to dig yet. We've had an insane amount of rain I'm waiting on to die down, and I'm waiting for the foliage in the woods to thicken up to give me more security and cover. I'm hoping to have them in the ground around mid-June.
I decided to wait another day to pot everything up. Out of the 27 that were put in there 26 seeds germinated, with several quickly putting out a nice tap root and casting off their seed shells. No problems with helmet head here. I selected the strongest and healthiest 15 out of the bunch to pot up, then I culled the rest. The soil I used was Happy Frog straight from the bag, no amendments. They were given tap water with an added drop of pH down and a pinch of Jack's Classic Blossom Booster.
