My 2020 NASA Glue (Original Glue #4 x Apollo 13 F4)

What I'm up to this year ... I am trying to restart an inside grow to produce medicinal flower for myself after a years exodus due to unexpected health issues.

I decided to take a look at some seeds I bred from few years back, a sister breeding to my NASA Bruce (Bruce Banner #3 x Apollo 13 F4): Original Glue #4 x Apollo 13 F4

I popped a few into water on the first full and new moons of the year with a 100% germination.



Oddly one of the seedlings from the new moon drop grew two tops at the very first node without any manipulation. Has anyone seen this before? If so, what can I expect?





Here she is getting ready for some new shoes. Quarantine 2020 has been rough on her, but looks as if she'll pull through. Definitely a unique and fragrant plant in veg. A few of her sisters will hopefully go 12/12 shortly.



I had recently topped the two topped NASA Glue (Original Glue #4 x Apollo 13 F4) seedling as she prepares for flower. The cut was simply placed into a rockwool cube submerged in a jar of water. Not the best way to clone, but hopefully I'll see roots within a few weeks.



NASA Glue (Original Glue #4 x Apollo 13 F4) pheno #5 at day 59 of flower. She is one of the tallest uncut plants ran thus far, doubling in size the first couple weeks of flower. But she seems to be an ugly outlier with extensive foxtailing and not finishing in the 8th week as the other phenotypes have. I'm not sure if it's a genetic or lighting quirk, as I have added a 300 watt Electric Sky LED by the Green Sunshine Company to add some additional space to my 1k MH 10k DE room/footprint and she was under it. I'm not really impressed with the light and will likely return it before the 90 day satisfaction guarantee.



This is NASA Glue (Original Glue #4 x Apollo 13 F4) pheno #8 at day 42 of flower. She is a couple of weeks behind pheno #5 as seen in my last post. She has been partially under the 300 watt Electric Sky LED by the Green Sunshine Company as well. Although she is not foxtailing, it does look like she may finish closer to 9 weeks.



NASA Glue (Original Glue #4 x Apollo 13 F4) pheno #5 at day 65 of flower finally finishing up. She'll be cut shortly.





The Two Tops pheno has finally made it into flower. She went a little wild in my over crowded and under lit veg.

I need to clean her up a bit and create a support system somehow with bamboo stakes, but I think she'll make it.

The Electric Sky LED really washed out the pic.



I cleaned up 2tops a bit, but maybe not enough taking a closer look at this pic LoL

She looks a bit stressed her first week under the HID lights being so tall, but hopefully that will pass soon. The Electric Sky LED from the Green Sunshine Co washed out the pic again and can be seen top right.* I will be boxing her up and shipping it back under the 90 day satisfaction*guarantee*shortly .* It would be nice to run in veg, but a $700 300 watt light there is not financially*viable for me.* I will also be switching up my Solis Tek 10k DE MH bulb to a new Eye Hortilux DE HPS.

I also changed up my nutes from Botanicare's*Pure*Blend Pro to Remo Nutrients 2 part micro & bloom. I've been using Remo Nutrients since their*start back in 2015 and have nothing but good things to say about them.**



NASA Glue (Original Glue #4 x Apollo 13 F4) pheno #8 at day 54 of flower. She's finishing up nicely as I try to flush some of the green out of her. She will be cut shortly to make room for the final pheno of this years NASA Glue phenohunt. I plan to do some further work with her next year with a little help from friends ;-)~





2tops is 2 weeks into flower now and nearly 6 feet tall (pictured next to 6 foot stake). She seems to be enjoying the change back to Remo Nutrients as the praying can attest to, but she is way too close for comfort to my 1k Gavita bulb.



My 2 Tops pheno of NASA Glue (Original Glue #4 x Apollo 13 F4) is 3 weeks into flower now and beginning to stack. At nearly 6 1/2 feet tall, she ended up a bit closer to my DE bulb than I'd like. Sadly some stress can be seen in the top pistils and bud development.



My 2 Tops pheno of NASA Glue (Original Glue #4 x Apollo 13 F4) is 4 weeks into flower now. I switched my DE bulb back to High Pressure Sodium (HPS) this past week and returned my LED. Having bad red/green colorvision makes it difficult for me to take decent pics under this spectrum. I hope it looks better to most of you ;-)~





She's come a long way.

My 2 Tops phenotype of NASA Glue (Original Glue #4 x Apollo 13 F4) is 5 weeks into flower now. Earlier this week I was devastated to find her completely wilted right before lights out, I thought I had lost her. The change to HPS really picked up water intake and she went dry on me, but luckily bounced back with minimal damage.

My 2 Tops pheno of NASA Glue (Original Glue #4 x Apollo 13 F4) is 6 weeks into flower now. The pistils are beginning to amber and the calyxes are starting to swell, but it's hard to tell if she will finish in 8 or 9 weeks at this point. I will start scoping the trichomes this week to get a closer look in anticipation of beginning a 10 day water only flush.

My 2 Tops pheno of NASA Glue (Original Glue #4 x Apollo 13 F4) is now 7 weeks into flower and the flop/finish is on. She's finishing up a bit quicker than I had expected. Almost all of the pistils are amber and receding, with swollen calyxes. Trichomes are mostly cloudy with few amber at this point. Likely done in 8 weeks, so just waiting on the flush now. Been water only for a few days now and here on out.

My 2 Tops pheno of NASA Glue (Original Glue #4 x Apollo 13 F4) is in her 8th and final week of flower. The weight gain has been intense requiring the deployment of many yoyos to keep order. Been water only/flushing for about 10 days now. The progression of trichomes ambering is pretty moderate, so I'll give her a few more days before chopping and hanging. The plant has a pretty good overall fade, but I'd like to see a bit less green.

It's a wrap. My 2tops phenotype of NASA Glue (Original Glue #4 x Apollo 13 F4) was chopped in her 8th week. She will hang for the next 2 weeks at 60 degrees and 60% relative humidity before being trimmed and jarred to cure.

I'm hoping to pull off a NASA Glue tasting party on Halloween with some fellow cannabis connoisseurs if the weather holds out. Thinking a bonfire under the full blue moon would be fitting for 2020 ;-)~

A bouquet of NASA Glue (Original Glue #4 x Apollo 13 F4) 2tops pheno dried flowers. As I am not the greatest trimmer, I thought I'd take a shot at flower arrangement ;-)~
