hspskank, your Purple Marocs are coming along nicely. How long have they been in flower?
Bean, as always great to hear from you.
I was grateful for your advice back in June but decided to try my luck with the S1's anyway. Am growing one plant out at this point, given to me by my favorite plant from last year.
Yes, Purple Maroc is a stable strain, as can be seen in the fact I got an identical pheno this year. This is the pheno I really like and is in the photo posted here over the past weeks. The other plant just didn't have the same look, and when you add on the stress factors, I had to decide. Both plants are shown below.
There was another reason I had to chop the other plant: Going on vacation! Being away for a few weeks raised a lot of questions. There was the problem of ensuring the plants will have water. (For water I decided to use multiple "Blumats" on each plant with about 20 liters for each to draw on.) But if the stressed plant did herm it would ruin all the other plants in the grow.
Fortunately I already knew the pheno I was hoping for had made her appearance, so being risk adverse, I decided to chop. We'll see how she does in a few weeks.

Sorry to hear about the Purple Maroc you had to throw away...I understand your point about stress but in general PM is a stable strain, meaning that you can play a lot around it and, in most cases, you won't have any issue. But, again, it is up to you and as far as I understand she was in a tricky situation already.
About your favorite pheno of the PM. Glad to hear that she will finish by the end of september, that's actually ideal. And nice job with the fimming, sure you are going to have a good harvest, no worries about that.
Besides the fact that you started at the end of June, she luckily started flowering by the half of august and like this, she still had 6 weeks of vegging and that's not that bad after all.
Best of luck mate and I'll check back in on the next update
