I couldn’t come up with a more clever title, so I’m rolling with “Banquos Basement” since I do grow in my basement. This will be an ongoing grow diary featuring whatever I’m growing at the time. I try to do things in a perpetual setup, but things got away from me over the summer and I ended up starting from scratch after my last plants came down.
So this is where I’m at now, somewhere around day 25, give or take. This is my first run in that tray system you see, the AutoPot Auto3 tray. I’ve got 3 auto cultivars from the same breeder running now. Left to right they are NewBerry Auto, Alien Moonrocks, and Twisted Puppy, all by Twisted Tree Autoflowers, out of Michigan. NewBerry Auto is their newest strain, and yes it’s an autoflower version of the much beloved NewBerry by DJ Short. It’s my first run of it, but from what I’m seeing so far and from what I’ve seen others share, TTA did a fantastic job bringing it over to an autoflower strain. Alien Moonrocks was the first cultivar I ever grew, which I started almost exactly a year ago. So yay for that. I think this time I got the green pheno, which is fine because I’ve had the purple 3 times already. And lastly there’s Twisted Puppy. That one isn’t available yet, but should be soon-ish. I received them as a gift from TTA for this neat thing I did on Reddit, but that’s not important right now. I recently chopped the first Twisted Puppy, and have some stashed that’s at about 30 days jar time now. At first it was super lemony smelling and tasting, but it’s gaining more and more of that familiar Chem peppery classic smell. I love it.
I’ll be starting some more plants in a couple days, when I get back home. More Twisted Tree autos, this time they’ll be testers for another Chem strain they’re working on. And I might maybe possibly perhaps pop a couple regs too, or maybe a Ghost Toof for Halloween. I haven’t decided yet. I also have some different peppers that I just started and want to cross-breed, and a cherry tomato plant too. I haven’t seen any rules that say only cannabis pictures can be shared here, so I’ll probably post a pic or two of them now and then too. I’ll be looking for testers if my pepper projects work out, so if that interests you at all, please feel free to follow along.
Wow. You made it this far. I’m impressed. I’m a long winded SOB because I have no life and no friends. I’m a basement dwelling hermit, more or less. So this is my outlet for the stuff I can’t share with the few people in my IRL life, other than my wife who, if I’m being totally honest, doesn’t share the same passion for cultivating this plant. And that’s tooooooootally fine. She helps me smoke it, and that’s good enough for me. So please feel free to jump in and talk shit, give advice, share insight, share your pics. Whatever. This is my basement and I’m telling you it’s okay to store your stuff here.
