Breeders Retail grow-n-show

Hey all,

Long time no post! I have to say in my year or two hiatus I missed this place! I've been given the green light to share my garden again with you all. It's been chugging along nicely producing the meds my patient needs.

While I dabble with quite a few breeders I find myself attracted to Chimera's offerings so much so that at last count I had 20 different cultivars from the man.... I suppose I've got an addiction.

Anyways a little about me - been growing for 5 or so years now, I grow solely for my patient who suffers debilitating migraines and fibromyalgia. I grow a perpetual garden under diy led arrays using organic soil and inputs.

Yield and "bag-appeal" is of little concern in the face of resin efficacy. I keep nothing around if it isn't a winner to my patient.

I do have a fairly small plant count to work with so I cannot devote the numbers needed to truly asses a population.

Now onto the fun stuff:



Welcome to the bloom tent!

Rear left is C4 (day 8)
Front left is hightest x Sweet skunk (day 7)
Rear centre is congo x sweet skunk (day 5)
Front centre is pot of gold x Hindu Kush (day 2)
Two right are both cookies s1 (9ish weeks)

The c4 is a "keeper" for me and is on her 5th cycle.

The remaining plants are all from seed. I will see if they are worth keeping around(or looking through the other seeds) after they've been cured and tested.

Please ask away if you have any questions. I will do my best to update regularly.

K

Looking good Krausen. Nice stretch on the Congo already! I'd choose that or Simply Irresistible or the Hawaiian Spice if I ever get a chance to do some of Chimera's stuff.

What are you companion planting btw?

Very nice looking garden Krausen,
I think you may keep the cookies? Lots of resin efficacy on that one:biggrin
Nice too see a Congo x SS being grown.

Yes that hightest is a little stretchier than I expected. I've got a plan to gain another 30cm or so. Hopefully that combined with consistent bending will keep it out of the lights.

My covercrop is a mix of a bunch of crap... red clover, white clover, alfalfa, fenugreek, buckwheat, and wheat. No real rhyme or reason for it - it's what I had and could find locally.

There indeed is plenty of resin produced on those cookies. I'm hopeful the resin is is beneficial for my patient - otherwise they will meet thier demise.

Limeygreen,

Hard to say exactly what my soil is any more... it's been recycled and re-amended over the last couple of years.

The basic recipe was one of coots:
1/3 peat
1/3 rice hulls/perlite
1/3 castings

+4 cups rock dust/cuft
+1/2 cup /cuft each kelp, crab, alfalfa,neem

During re-amends I typically add 1/5 the volume of 50:50 compost & aeration.

In addition to a amendment mix I made that has roughly equal parts of soy,alfalfa, kelp, neem, crab, glacial rock, basalt, carbontite, and gypsum.

Feedings are follow a similar structure (or rather lack there of). I water every other day typically and "feed" every other watering.

My basic "feed" solution is:
20l ro water
30ml molasses
15ml silica
60ml fulvic
1 fillet of aloe (or freeze dried if my aloe needs a break)

I blend this mix with an immersion blender and strain it into my sprayer.

I haphazardly add the following depending on how frisky I'm feeling:
Malted barley flour
Malted corn flour
Kelp meal solution
Alfalfa meal solution

I also try to feed aerated teas when I think of it (usually once or twice during a bloom cycle) - these are typically just compost (fish and/or worm castings) and molasses however I will often toss in a random combination of bokashi bran or juice, kelp, alfalfa, malted barley, malted corn.

Alfalfa and the clovers fix nitrogen so I've heard.

Lovely looking garden K. Good to see you around again. I'm thinking that C4 is pretty special if it's been kept for quite a few cycles.

What's special about the C4 for your patient? Is it special just in effect/outcome or does it shine with other qualities like flavour and aroma?

Glad to be back Kal!

The c4 is a breeze to grow and is therefore a winner from my perspective. The medicine seems to be very consistent. It dulls pain yet is functional. Tolerance doesn't seem to build up so long as I have other strains available to swap through. The nose on it the last time I ran wasn't great - the garden was running hot and I think that blew off many of the more delicate terpenes. It generally has a spicy-sweet nose with a bit of sulphur. It's gentle and not very offensive.

I'm still holding a scnhazzleberry #2 that is a standby for a knock-out punch.

Sadly I lost the my favourite 5 fingered - cbd lullaby lady... she got root bound, autoflowered, and just wouldn't reveg.

I've got more of the cbd lullaby (and the lullablox) I'll search through in the near future as I free up plant count. I'm hoping to find another keeper between the two offerings. Heck I should add a pack of the lullabyxss to the mix.
