It's been a spell. Last grew 2007, in earnest.
Picked up some feminized seeds to ease myself into this again - first time using Fem. seed.
Ultimately ended up with:
3 of 3 of Greenhouse Lemon Skunk
3 of 3 Dutch Passion Blueberry
1 of 3 Barney's Acapulco Gold
1 of 3 Sensibleseeds collection Blue Wizard freebie
400 Watt 4x2x6' grow tent
600 Watt HPS custom grow box 4x4x7'
Sunshine Mix with earthworm castings and lime added in handfuls.
FoxFarm Grow big, Tiger Bloom, Big Bloom and Cal/Mag as needed.
First run went from October 2017-Jan. 10, 2018 currently drying.
Pics to follow just for posterity.
Blueberrys all showed hermaphrodites and were therefore plucked early. One at about 4 weeks, one about 6 and the last one at 65 days. Early smoking isn't anything to report but it's got a nice mellow body buzz. Looking forward to trying the one that made it to harvest window.
Would not try again.
Lemon skunks grew well and hearty. No issues with feeding or hermaprhodites, etc., Took whatever was thrown at them and thrived. Very fragrant, and some really large buds. (pics to come)
Did not keep a mother, but I would depending on the smoke tests to come.
Blue Wizard grew odd, just foxtails all over the place, but fun to watch. No thickness in buds, but heavy and needed some real support. Buds are very thin, no meat to them. But they're pretty and I'm not expecting anything because it was free. Depending on the high, I might just do a bubble bag run for some hash.
Not interested in trying again.
Barney's acapulco gold was anything but tall and what I would have thought it would look like.
Nothing exceptional, but the bud structure was good and it seemed it could have been harvested earlier.
Would not run again.
Ok....pics, and I'll update from this point forward as I'm trying some new Apollo 11 and Crystal Blue from Brothers Grimm new stock. I'll predominantly be using this thread to document the Brothers Grimm new lineup for posterity.
Looking to try some good stuff, but really searching for another Apollo 11 mother that leans genius because that was just the best weed I've grown and smoked.
My favorite plants! (circa 2006-7)
