Hello OG. I am a hobby breeder and I wanted to show you all another creation I made. Jabbas Stash x C99. it’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Bodhi Seeds. Some of you may have seen my other thread Guava Hashplant x C99. Same idea for this one. I hunted a pack of Jabbas Stash and found 6 females, 2 of which stood out above the rest in both effects and looks. A year or so went by and I decided to let one of the two go. Another year or so went by and it came time for new introductions into the garden so same thing with the GuavaHP, I decided to pollinate this.
The mom was absolutely killer smoke and a stunning looker. Definitely one of the prettiest plants and flowers I have ever grown but she wasn’t just looks, she had the personality to go with. It was the type of stuff you wouldn’t want to smoke mid day or before doing any kind of hard work but she was far from the perfect lady. She had a couple flaws. She had a bit of nitrogen sensitivity from the Snow Lotus side which I have witnessed recurring in SL strains. I feed pretty light in general and I really don’t like this quality in any strain I have grown. Making multiple feed mixes to suit the needs of differeing plants is not something I enjoy to say the least. She also had a bit of a lanky stretchy structure which needed a lot of support and she was a massive bitch to trim! Way higher leaf:calyx ratio than I prefer. So she was far from perfect.
As for the C99 dad(I’m copy pasting this part from the other thread) the story goes that MikeJ(PeakSeedsBC) received his C99 seed stock from Frost Bros when they got out of the breeding game, who worked the original Bros Grimm release to F4. At the time I purchased the seeds MikeJ told me he had worked 3 generations onto the line himself. I had previously test grew this C99 for him. I grew out about 40-50 C99 ladies in 1 gallon pots over the course of a couple runs and learned that the strain was completely uniform/homozygous. All plants are the same with minor variances mostly only in height and nuances in smell. Growing this many out I got to know this strain quite well. Not a single banana or ballsack was found on any of the C99 either, she’s rock solid in that regard. Truly ripe at 56-63 days she smells of pineapple funk and spice with a potent but functional racy daytime git-r-dun type of high. Now being a non professional/hobby breeder who lacks experience in male selections I figured this strain is perfect to try for a pollen chuck. If all the females are the same and fire I figured so must be the males. So for the first time in my life I popped a pack or seeds and culled out all of the females for space constraint sake. I can’t remember if I used 2 or 3 males to be honest but I then culled out a couple males and used the shortest, least stretchy males of the bunch and mixed their pollen together upon collection and proceeded to pollinate everything I was about to let go and thus the Guava Hashplant x C99 was born.
Here are the 2 cuts I decided to hold onto. It was very hard to decide which cut was better and which to keep so ultimately I held onto the 2 for a while. This seems to be a recurring theme from Bodhi packs. First up this is the first one I let go prior to pollinating. I have got to stop doing that lol! I blame the limited plant count combined with a small garden and a desire for variety. In hindsight I could have easily kept all these cuts. From here on out I vow to never let a cut go again! lmao yea right.
This one seemed like a nice healthy mix between Bubba Kush and Snow Lotus.
This is the one of the two that I held onto for the longest and pollinated. She was an absolute stunner both while alive and in dried flower form.
Check out these flowers… and they say purple weed isn’t potent. HAH!
Both Jabbas Stash moms had tones of grapey kushy berry goodness with tones of coffee in there to varying degrees.
Unfortunately I didn’t take any pictures of the males that I used nor did I flower them past the point of pollen collection so there is nothing to show in the way of the C99 males but I did find some old budshots of the female flowers. Quality herb no doubt. Have a peak.
