Meant to start something like this way earlier in the process, but lately even my handwritten journals/logs are all over the place, so I’ll say better late than never.
I got hooked up with Anthos through another local breeder here in VT that I did some graphic design work for. As you can tell from the title, Anthos has bred this cultivar for a while now and it’s primarily been run as an outdoor variety here in the northeast. He sent me the F4 seeds for me to run indoors and report back.
The lineage of Niben as related to me are: Freezeland IBL X God Bud. “Niben” is the Abenaki god of summer, so you get the idea for the name from the cross.
My setup here is a 3x3 veg tent and a 2x2.5 flower tent. The 3x3 has two spider farmer SF1000’s and the flower tent has an HLG 225. I run soil fed with dry amendment top dressings and ACT’s. Trying to be as close to 100% organic as I can be.
I cracked 3 seeds and had one confirmed female early on. The other two are still in veg and I’m like 99% sure they’re male, leaving them to go a little longer to be sure before they get culled out. The one confirmed female got topped late in the game and dropped under a trellis in the flower tent about a week ago. The photos here are what she’s looking like as of today.
