Somebody help me out if I categorized this thread incorrectly. I’m not even sure how to start a “grow log” on here.
Anyways… I’ve been talking about doing this for a while now. Dragged my feet here & there (ugh, sorry) but it’s finally underway. Acapulco Gold – via @WoodstockFarmacy (10) and via Bodhi/Nierika (12) gifted by @Kyumonryu. The goal is to grow these out to fruition and give-away to the OG community – I’ll talk more about that later; don’t wanna jinx myself.
I can talk about what I heard about the source for these seeds from both parties, but it’s just not my story to tell. Woodstock would be a better person to ask.
So lets get down to the nitty-gritty. (3) of the Nierika seeds didn’t pop; well, one popped but fizzled out shortly after. And as you can see in the pic, (1) seedling fizzled out before pushing out its true-leaves; one of the Woodstock ones. So as of right now, we have (18) specimens if I counted correctly. Everything’s obviously vegging together, but they’re labeled by which breeder they came from just in case, ya know? Needless to say, they all look uniform and look true to type IMO. So I’m confident that all are what they’re supposed to be.
Not much else I want to report yet. Any questions are welcomed. If anyone has any suggestion for those fizzled-out seeds, I’m all ears. And if anyone else is growing these and wants to chime in/contribute to the open pollination, I’m game! I know more than a few packs got spread a few months back… But I won’t judge. I will admit: I’m a little weary of taking in clones or pollen from undocumented grows, but when the time comes I’d probably be willing to send stuff out. In my grow, and even my part of the state for the most part, we don’t come across PM, russet mites, HLVd, nor other systemic pests too often… if ever. At least I don’t. But knock on wood for me.
