Testers, step on up! The Junkyard awaits

That Bodega Bubblegum #10 x Nigerian Sunshine cross seems great. I bet there is a winning male and female in those beans. I’d like to grow those out. It is very interesting to see the contrast between your indoor Nigerian Sunshine and your outdoor Nigerian Sunshine.

I’ve also began popping Nigerian Sunshine tester beans. Going to chronicle from start to finish in the thread Chronicles of a madman, over a dozen strains

I soaked my beans on 420. 11 NS#2 x Goji OG & 12 NS#2 x Granny Skunk #5. One of each didn’t sprout. And 1 NSxGS is just coming alive. It grew horizontally, underground, the 1/4" root tip never developed, but shed it’s cap. I’ll probably cull it, but I like the challenge of helping troubled plants.

Here they are 11 days later.


For now, I’ll update this grow in my Perpetual diary, Yoop’s 2nd Perpetual Garden Attempt, until they go outside.

Enlighten please @Dank-D , the phone don’t do it justice. But from looking at similar structures on more mature plants they seem to me nice little heads saying high!

Well first thing to look at is why do plants produce trichomes? They produce trichomes to protect the plants flowers against predators like aminals and bugs. That’s why you dont start to see them until the plant shows signs of flower.

Also seeing trichomes on what will be larger fan leaves would be crazy , especially this early on. I’m not trying to pee on your parade or start and argument and I have no clue what those little bumps are.

Will be happy to follow along with your grow to see where this goes and wish you the best of luck.

Correct! I stressed these little guys out In a 2oz cup to see if they would take the abuse. They did and started producing. Every tester I do this with to see if with the poorest of standards if they will Be viable. This is the first one I’ve seen want to produce like this. So I would conclude stress is the main reason why this happened, but for me that’s good thing as I want top production minus the labor lol. Good catch at @Dank-D

Growing in 1 gallon pots with MegaCrop, Silica Blast and Cal-Mag and molasses nutes fed by BluMats in Happy Frog soil. I have 2 1000 watt LEDs, one white, one red on 12 hour timers. AC to keep temperature below 80 deg.F. Planted four, three are females.

#3- It’s brighter green than the others


I must have accidentally brought a touch of pollen onto #1, I had several males that I grew out for their pollen in another room. Oops.

Looks great! What kind of smells are you getting? Do they vary from purple to green?

NS2 is sandalwood.

Edit to say that the green one is probably a Goji leaner. I have never seen anything green come out of the NS2. It turns everything some shade of purple.

Great looking flowers well done

They all seem to smell the same, the green one may be a little more intense, but they all smell of sweet licorice. My wife concurs.(for a second unbiased opinion)

I’m laughing at myself because I forgot, I also have been adding black strap molasses and that is the predominant smell. I’ll readdress this in a couple weeks when I am into flushing them.

Also, Thank You very much!!!

WOW those plants are stunning!! Damn fine skills!!
I think this page explains the bumps on the leaf better, than the science site one does.
