When I first started growing in 2002, I learned everything I knew from overgrow.com. I was overwhelmed by all the info and possibilities, but settled on following @BogSeeds’ growing methods. As such, I grew indoors and in soil with tremendous success. In time, I moved into a new home with well water and growing in soil wasn’t working for me. By this time, Overgrow went dark, so I was on my own to find a solution for my growing challenges. Cut to the chase, I ended up going hydro and eventually dialed in a very successful setup.
In 2015, I stopped growing and got rid of all my stuff, but earlier this year, I decided to start up again. With Overgrow back online and more personal knowledge to pull from, I opted to go back to my “roots” and start playing in the soil again (though I still might eventually migrate to hydro).
A couple of months ago, I was lucky enough to have a few fellow members hook me up with some beans to help me get back into growing. I won’t name them, but this thread is intended to show my progress with some of these beans.
The first batch I got were from one OG member, who sent me 4 strains. They are:
A - Afghani Lowland x Dakini Kush (Fem) / 1
B - Aborigine x Sunshine Daydream / 3
C - Jungle Spice #6 / 2
D - Black Domina #2 x Jungle Spice / 3
All 4 strains are shown here:
These plants have been in veg for about 2 months. As you can see, there’s some uneven growth and stretching / leaning plants. This is partially due to the fact that until a few days ago, all 9 of these plants were in a 5’x2’ closet. Needless to say, they were not happy to be stuck in such tight quarters, but I suspect they’ll be OK.
Although they’re all about 2 months into veg, only one of them has definitively shown her sex, and it’s not the Afghani Lowland x Dakini Kush, which I was told were Femmed seeds. It’s one of the Aborigine x Sunshine Daydreams, which I’m definitely excited about! But I’ve waited long enough and plan to switch them to 12/12 in the next couple of days.
The room they’re in now is actually my flowering room. To give you an idea of the size of these plants, the horizontal PVC pipe you see in the back is a little over 48" from the ground, so I’m guessing these plants are gonna get pretty big.
I guess that’s about all I have to say at this point. I think the next update of any consequence will be on the sex reveal of the other 8 plants.
BTW: After I took the photo that I posted above, I changed the setting on my camera to take smaller pics. I’ve never used the setting I changed it to, but in no uncertain terms - it’s not one I’ll be using again. Check out the cartoon characters it turned my plants into:
Yeah, that’s a fail!
