@Sebring I am very thankful for the mail. I cannot express it in a post so maybe this thread will show my appreciation. Interestingly, Oaxacan is my passion and plays a big role in this here.

I played with many seedlings. Selection for the journal hasn’t showed any cherry pigmentation ;

Another was selected which featured the same quality with exception of a very red cherry stem.

Lighting Bolts on the way.

Also, I don’t want to journal it as closely but will update here & there:

Happy u are joining along my friend - As an artist I want 2 share and hope to inspire something in you maybe. Here is a peek at my Oaxacan flowers. To my pleasent surprise ; this cherrybomb is part Oaxacan. Here a small clip from the seed finder in relation to cherrybomb -

"I can recognize both Mexican and Afghani parents, but it tends to lean towards the Mexican side for sure. Mr G thought there may be Thai in the lineage, but having the BOEL come out and say exactly what the lineage is pretty much clears all speculation on origin. There may have been Thai introduced in the lineage later after BOEL breedings on the Islands, but these do indeed act more like Mexicans compared to these ripping Thai’s we have.

The ton of Oaxacan went to Hawaii. On a beach in Manzanillo, Eddie Padilla held up a spear and said it looked like a lightening bolt due to the frosty flowers glistening in the sun. They called the weed and the boat “Lightning Bolt.” "

The idea for crushing up volcanic rock and sub irrigating coco organically came from Maui itself and it’s history of red soil.

I really want to bring out something authentic. There is an old story of really dank sweet potatoes coming off the island of Maui - and if I had to guess it’s where they were hiding some fire.

"On the islands of Kaua’i, O’ahu and Moloka’i, the principal crop was taro – a starchy plant grown in irrigated wetlands where the supply of water was usually abundant.

But on Maui and the Big Island of Hawai’i, the main staple was the sweet potato – a more labor-intensive crop planted in relatively dry fields where success depended on adequate seasonal rainfall."

“strong evidence that the early inhabitants of Kohala had discovered a “sweet spot” of high soil fertility - a swath of land, rich in phosphorus and bases, which received enough precipitation to harvest vast quantities of sweet potatoes.”

So I broke down authentic volcanic rock and amended my soil with it ; keeping in mind the acidity of my situation I amended along with a bunch of good things coming only from the ocean.
