This is my log for preserving bodhi’s Pura Vida F1 by doing an open pollination of a full pack donated by a good friend @MojoRizing from another forum. Consider this Giving Back to the Community pt. 2. Seeds to be given away for free to anyone and everyone once they’re done.
Pura Vida is a discontinued cross of the LA Pure Kush clone (aka Hollywood PK) and the Appalachian dad, made by bodhi seeds about a decade ago. Here’s the lineage:
And here are a few links to other grows and lab tests and smoke reports:
MojoRizing has graciously donated over a dozen various F1 bodhi seeds packs for preservation, and this is the latest pack being run. What a generous person! If you know him, send him a message of thanks and appreciation for being a kind and honorable human being.
He stored them in the freezer in individual vials until they were ready to be popped, and that’s how he sent them to me. I’ve stored them in the fridge with the rest of the vault. I spread a few packs around to friends to help with the preservation runs. This is how they’re packaged when I received them:
They all cracked and all but one sprouted before planting:
One of the sprouts withered in the soil, and one never sprouted. Oh well, that’s how it goes. I got 9 happy & healthy seedlings up and out of the recycled dirt with no issues. Most were topped at day 21 above ground, but there were a couple stragglers that I waited to day 28 for topping.
Speaking of environment, I run all DIY LED lights. Veg is some low powered strips in a small space, flower is a 4x4 tent with 400w of old COBs in 3500K. They’re over 5 years old now and due for an upgrade, but that will have to wait.
I use an organic recycled soil mix tailored to my tap water’s pH. It’s loosely based on Coots’ mix, and you can find the exact recipe here and on other forums if you search my posts. I use straight water the whole way, nowadays RO water because we have it for drinking. Sometimes topdress with malted barley at flip, but not this time. Other than that, not much to say, but ask if you’re curious.
I’ll keep updating this as I go along. Plants are in week 4 of flower at the time of posting, and there’s a lot of pics to document between veg and current.
