Good news on the 4 purple phenotypes my friend,
I'm not sure what exactly it is but I love to see/toke a nice 'purple' or 'blue' strain. Think there's a pic of an afghan I had indoors last year that had really purple coloured bud?, not the leaf though, only the bud was purple - weird?.
Those pics in your last post really show the sativa in the strain huh?!, I mean the slender fans, especially in the first pic.
I'd love to stick a sat or sat-dom strain outside but living in Scotland means having to stick to the more indica types in order for em to finish in time. I still have a couple of HashPlants out atm & that's us almost kickin November so I can honestly say that I can forget the sats other than indoors.
I know exactly what you mean about the camera btw, I use a Fuji FinePix1400 which is pretty old but it's one of the few I've tried that doesn't produce an orange blur under HPS lighting. It's got tape on it to hold the battery compartment closed & has seen better days but it works for me. Taking shots with macro can be a nitemare, you're not alone buddy, suppose it really requires a tripod to hold the camera absolutely steady but we get by
Be interesting to know what your dried yield is like so I'll keep an eye on your thread for updates.
Best Regards & many fruitful harvests,
