Thanks for the warm welcome! Glad to be apart of a forum again! It’s been a while, and seems to be very positive around here!!
Thanks for the welcome! And no doubt thos mutation is quite cool to witness! I’ve been running this particular strain for a few years now, and just this cycle it showed this mutation. Very odd but also very interesting!
Isnt it? I’m currently giving them all their last few waterings and have dropped my water temps significantly so the color contrast between these the dosi (green) and the jelly breath (purple) have changed.
With the dosi taking on a more purple hue and the jelly going jet black. Jelly turns nice colors regarding temps. Always aesthetically pleasing to the eye!
Thank you for the kind words and warm welcome! Def very homey feeling around these parts!
The fragrance is out of this world especially at the stage I’m at right now. The carbon filters are working in overdrive!
Great looking plants with a nic of oil country I’d venture a guess Alberta or southern sask . Are those your personal at home plants or work photos? I’d be interested to hear more on large scale pm preventive measures your using . Thanks
hehe-- had to ask.
What’s your experience been with the CBD stuff?
When my buddy asked me what strains I was into I said “no Cookies, no Blue Dream. please.”

Thx. U can tell I’m new here cant ya?
I dont have a tonne of experience with CBD strains, I’ve flowered out my thunderstruck, harlequin and Charlotte’s web a few times before. Usually only run it when its needed.
But other than that not a whole lot, right now we are currently doing a pheno hunt of some apparent 20:1 CBd strains at work. The strains are caramel ice and black widow.
Oh wow! I’m also new to OG, and I’m a newbie with growing cannabis. Your beautiful plants have inspired me so like crazy! I hope to one day have a variety like yours with those beautiful colors. Thank you so much for sharing!
Welcome og! I’m sure you will def achieve whatever you strive for! It’s all about how passionate you are with what you do! I appreciate the kind words, happy growing!
they blast it with radiation after the fact to kill it all off (cold-pasteurization)
Powdery mildew will die with the plant, it’s the buildup of spores that would ruin the product. Radiation wouldn’t get them off the buds.
A plant with PM will underperform and infect others, I doubt any large scale pro growers would allow plants to finish with PM to any large degree…a small bit can be almost inevitable
they use irradiation for a variety of reasons, but killing moulds/pests is definitely one of them. maybe OP can expand on if his LP uses this process and for what reasons
Definitely. I think that might be more for botrytis though. I don’t think pm will live long (or prosper lol) after the chop. They process tons of nugs and one with botrytis getting into the mix could ruin a batch.
Who knows what the hell else gets on their buds, I definitely prefer my own lol
ahh that could be … thankfully i’ve never had to deal with either knock on wood but i’m pretty sure these large producers with huge rooms and thousands of plants are hardly giving each plant the love and attention it needs, easier (and cheaper) to just blast everything with gamma rays after the fact … i guess it also has the benefit of sterilizing any seeds to prevent people just growing their own
This is an option that we have at our disposal. However we have mitigated pests and PM using different techniques with out the use of harsh chemicals or irradiation. I can confirm alot of lp’s do irradiate their final product to ensure that if there is any pm, its killed by irradiation. This technique usually also takes away some of the terpenes.
Typically an lp will have their flowers tested for total cannabinoids and any microbial/fungal spores in the flowers, if tests show significantly high amounts of mold, then the flowers will be irradiated. Thankfully we have not had to do this to any flowers that were sold! But we did have to test our unit out on a couple of test crops in order to prove to health Canada that are facility is fully operational in all aspects.
No one uses ozone generators anymore?
Even at low doses it effectively kill everything in the room… spores, mold/mildew, plant pathogens, insects, everything except for your plants… and will leave everything smelling fresh, clean and sterilized.
You can get an O3 generator with an attachment for ozonating water and spray the ozonated water on your plants to disinfect your plants as a whole. Ozone breaks down in water after about 30 minutes, that makes it safe to use directly on plants without harming them.
The Dosidos and Jelly Breath make a great pic, good looking plants
