Howdy all. Have a little/medium/large update. Here it goes.
Arena isn't doing the same anymore. Dad reality. I'll just say the ladies aren't fighting to flower... _See #2
Arena has been moved outside under natural light and covered each evening after a quick and thorough egg check with a mosquito net. They are now making seeds. (See my hypocritical post about my neighbor.)
Culled a hermaphrodited White Widow and it's male friend. They are now in a nice jar.
Kept both the Diesel Moonshines (1male, 1female). Both getting along very well. The male more so since he has a few girl friends...
Kept three of the BC Mango x NightNurse females.
Arena is now moving into a homemade box and in a NoTill environment. After some deliberation between myself and myself I was able to convince myself that I'd be better off to start with a more manageable project...
Now some pics and a little more explanation.
Saw this the other day glued to a light post on a freeway on-ramp. I went and took it. Two hammers, a long steel ruler and some elbow grease and she came off. Sucker was epoxied on there good! Not sure who it is but it's cool since it's a brain plant. Stoked for sure. Hoping for a future banksy.
(#2) reference. Making some seeds. Have some Santa Ana winds blowing today and heat is out the roof right now. The Diesel Moonshine is dusting them nicely. Lots of brown pistils.
This little lady is amazingly vigorous and reeks of sweetness. Indescribable intense fruity/candy/ice cream smell. They were all put outside at the same time, so she and her seeds are definitely keepers. Going to have some love to share!
First I dusted her with some pollen i got from the neighbor a few months back. It's been in the fridge for a while. A few pistils turned after a couple days, but nothing serious or majorly noticeable. Then when I saw the male start doing it's thing I figured she needed to get hammered by him so I can hopefully distinguish between the seeds, which ones are different. Should be doable, but i think i'm really stretching this one. Either way she is loaded up.
Here's the Moonshine and Male. She's a frosty one compared to the BC's. I have some questions about this, but I'll save them for now. She also has a great smell. It's hard to describe. A lot of earth to it, but not regular plant earth smell. Definitely unique and strong. Decided to google around for DM seeds and they are pretty pricy on a couple sites. Not sure what is up with that, but am hoping to send some of these out to the OG comm as well.
Got a text of the same seeds being grown out as I have going to seed with the Diesel Moonshine. Looking pretty promising and now that they are starting to smell and such its looking even more promising. Not sure if that's plastic or clay. Lol...
The other BC's aren't as smelly and not even half as far along as the one doing well with all the brown pistils. They both smell about exactly the same. Not overly strong, but a little sourish. Weird to my nose. For some reason I have no close pics, but there isn't much to see, just the start of new flowers. A few little pistils here and there, but nothing like the other. Once it gets seeded more I'll shoot some of it.
Here's some dead White widows, a compost heap in a hydro bin some freshly taken Lacto and an aloe/Cannabis ferment. Got a couple others around here somewhere. I finally got up the nerve to taste the cheese curd. It was fine. Not something I'd eat again, but glad I can say I tried it.
Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to call me out on the seed mess going on. Cheers!
