Has been a pleasure checking out your grow foomar - thanks for sharing. The MBS's look and sound brilliant as do your crosses. As well as enjoying the budporn theres always lots to learn from journals like this so thanks again.
Thyanks craw , these are good genetics that have done well under poor conditions , every plant i document is in two litres of soil and none have an easy life , these stood out as many failed.
Sowing a few F2,s every week to fill in gaps , not a poor plant yet and some stunners , this is pure grapefruit Diesel in taste and a fast sub 50 days soggers dream , flowered in a greenhouse with light hours controlled , three crops a year possible this way and should have done it decades ago.
same here mr duck,
always checking any updates,
one of the ritual threads to check ,, hehe,
blessed to have mr foomars skillful photography and excellent descriptive posts in our forum ,
thanks man , and glad to see you still enjoying that erb and its progeny...
ps, tried some mbs x waf (afghan from aussie return soldier) the last few days ,,
darn delicious erb , and a jolly fat nugget of a thing,
bit sleepy for me ,
but for an indica dominant ,, i quite enjoyed it ,
something potently sweet about it ..
ill have to get a shot of it before i toke it all , ,hehe ...
Made a small batch of MBS(original) x MIS afghan freebies , useing a very odd chemical reeking male , the five i have grown were all males but uniform and strong smelling , huge fans and very bushy , will pop a dozen this weekend and squeeze them in somehow.
British troops seem to have no worries bringing back seed from active service , hopeing for local genetics untainted by commercial seed from Pakistan , which i think the MIS was.
Wild plants from uncultivated areas could have a better chance of being older
Have two selections from this source to run outdoors next year , both have GPS location of the plant they were collected from and date , very indica hash strains but could be interesting to cross out , hopeless in an indoor room as is.
Hi Foomar m8, i love the work you have done, and hope you continue as i believe you have the gift m8, thank you again for all you have done with the mbs1 line, i love all your descriptions and pics.
Anyways m8 again a huge thank you from over here for all your work
Much respect always
Thanks Moon , still popping a few F2,s at every opportunity to fill in gaps , eight just gone into flower , still finding individual expressions of interest and more potential keepers than most produce.
A single trial MBS F1 clone survived and finished outdoors midlands UK first week october after a poor summer and being eaten by assorted animals , medium yield of high grade for outdoor , will displace a couple of local clones for sure.
congrats for your grows and beautiful pics etc .. sincerly .
i'm growing mbs and z99 at the moment and i have to say i have pretty much the same feelings than yours with those strain .
i v'e found some "cheesy socks and mildew" and "rooting fruit" plants in mine .
and as you know i received my antipodes few weeks ago.
i will post my grow report of the mbs and z99 soon . i've not tested the smoke at the moment but it's really promising ,interesting and smelly
and thank you wally to gave me the opportunity to grow those amazing strain and moon for his work.
thank you moose for the rainbow X too
This F2 has an odd odour , almost pheromone in effect it atracts and repels at the same time , enougth variation here to keep turning up goodies.
Hard to tell some of these from the Antipodes cross by sight , some overlap of indistinguishable expressions when smoked , still no signs of intersex in the originals , F2,s or several outcrosses , in a harsh room designed to weed out the crap by stress.
Thanks Manivelle , could grow the F2,s out for years without getting bored with this one.
This is as colourfull as this girl will go in a cold room after five days in the dark over xmas , shiny leaves but no genetic colour here from dark trait parents , has a near diesel smell with rotting fabric , tall sativa leaning 70 days or so in a better room with heat.
The particularly desirable pseudo diesel odour/flavour seems to only be strongly expressed in green plants to date , a dark one may turn up if not mutually exclusive as not all the punnet predictions seem to exist.
Thanks Squiggles , still finding an interesting variety in every ten started , this is the fattest one so far , lower node five bud in a 50 cal case for scale.
Could use another week in the greenhouse but the weather has turned cold and gloomy with potential budrot issues , a few catterpillers on them so not risking bringing them indoors to finish this time after last years hitchikers ran wild .
Some lovely looking photos there foomar. I have 2 MBS on the go atm. One looking very Indica and the other very Sativa looking in it's leaf structure and overall growth. I haven't ever smoked much of this strain and when I did get to try it, it was way over ripe. Not my doing hehe. Can you or anybody tell me what to expect from the two different variations I have in terms of what the finished cured bud will be like in the effect of their highs looking so different from each other. Peace
