Some of my Plants from The Past

Around the holidays, I seem to always wax nostalgic. I sometimes even think of plants I grew and enjoyed from years ago.
So I have been looking through some of my shots from the early digital era.
Prior to digital cameras I only used a Polaroid.

This is Serious Seeds AK 47 from circa 2003.

ProMixBX amended with perlite, vermiculite and dolomite lime.
Jack’s Classic Dynamic Duo nutrients.

This is one of the weirdest grows I ever did. Around ‘03 ‘04, I was in NJ, providing protracted assistance to my little sister who was involved in a terrible domestic quagmire.
I was staying at her house, and because of the situation, the only feasible grow was extreme stealth. (my sis grows…she was only one who knew)
I knew a grower who made a cross he thought had great potential, he called it Roadtrip.
So, I had to keep the plants tiny, they had to go outdoors, but I started In late March way before last frost. I planned to flower after about a week of veg. For dark I put them under a large corrugated box with heavy blanket over it for 12 hrs.
I had to play Ninja, moving the plants in and out of the house every day. I started some basil plants at the same time as a
ruse. It worked, as they never knew.

ETA: clarify

They were in ProMix BX blend, small–3/4 gallon containers. Jack’s Classic Duo.

I am not sure when exactly this was.
Too lazy to exert effort to figure out.

Paradise Seeds Belladonna around 17 years ago. I had way more pics…but, oh well.

Some of these are low res, sorry.

Apollo 11 G4 Reservoir Seeds circa '02-'04… I think…I grew this one many times, the shorter more indica looking pheno/genos were some of my favorite smoke ever.

These little plants are all clones which I put into 12/12 as soon as they rooted.
They stay nice and small…very portable.

these are from about 15 years ago

That was a nice trip back in time and some names I had all but forgotten.

Ak47 was great back in the early 2000’s. Was it Serious who had the Cherry geno?

Thanks, I am glad you enjoyed your stroll.

Yes, I really enjoyed AK 47 back then!
And Serious had that nice geno which always reminded me of cherry flavored cough
syrup.
Alas, she is yet another girl I should have held on to.
Hindsight is always spooky.

Well this is one of my favorite girls. She was a delightful surprise which resulted from my crossing my favorite WYD girl with a nice, vigorous NLxHaze dude.

I started three seeds in this window box. I typically never do this. But I also knew that I might only end up with one girl…that’s what happened.
I wanted to keep plant easy to carry, so I tied it down to the stump of one of the males I cut down.
This cross was delightful to grow and smoke…another sad coulda shoulda.

Alot of classics! I used to run Apollo G4 from reservoir too, some of my favorite weed ever. I had 2 seeds left that I tried to sprout a while ago but sadly neither took…

Great looking Plants @Calyxander I’m curious to the size of those pots there in are they even 5gallons on some of those?

Thanks @Tinytuttle
The largest containers in these pics is 3 gallon. I move my container plants throughout the
day in order to receive as much direct sunlight as possible. I also move them to shelter
if nasty trichome ravaging weather is approaching.

Nowadays, I seldom use any larger than 2 gallons.
I sacrifice yield for portability.
