I'm not, but I took 4 clones from each of the 6 plants that are still vegging. After flowering, I'll turn the best clones of the best strains into my new moms and dads. I still plan on seeding the best females too, then either selectively inbreeding the progency or back-crossing to said moms/dads. It all really depends on how many males I get and from what strains.

Are you as impressed with the genetics as I am so far? I should have the rest in 12/12 next week.

So far so good, out of the 6 I've only had one with leaf deformations.  The rest have been pretty uniform.  Only thing I'm disappointed in is the lack of any skunk odor on the flowering plant.  I sort of smell this citrusy scent now, but it's really light and you have to get up right next to the bud.  You would think that at over a month old there would be some strong odor coming from the plant lol.  Other then that I'm totally digging these beans, not bad for 15 bucks :smile:

Picture update and some random observations:



Sleestack x Skunk has two different phenos. One is very sativa dominant and one is slightly indica/afghan dominant. Other skunk train grows I read around the net seem to back this up too.

The LA Conf is much shorter than it looks...almost too short.

They haven't been watered in 5 days, that is just new hydroton. The transpiration rate is so low with LEDs they can usually go 7-8 days in the big pots even in coco.

My veg tent will almost, but not quite, hold three drain trays. Damnit.

:peace:

I was re-reading the journal today and have to admit it jumps around a lot and is kind of hard to follow. Since we're on page 4 and you might not want to re-read everything here is a quick re-cap:

14 seeds
7 confirmed females (You'll meet them in a second)
1 confirmed male (Kushberry, got the chop)
6 still vegging (Check my previous post)

Here are the first individual pics of the 7 females, so you can get a clearer look:

LA Confidential x Skunk #1
OG #18 x Skunk #1
Kandy Kush x Skunk #1
Kandy Kush x Skunk #1
Kandy Kush x Skunk #1
LA Confidential x Skunk #1
Sleestack x Skunk #1

These receive side-lighting from the 600w and also sit under a 55w LED (0.5w bulbs, unlike the 1w bulbs in my veg lamp).

Amazing how much they variate now...

Wow two of those Kandy Kush Xs look totally different.  Cool stuff and good pics.  And those LA Confidentials remind me of my Strawberry Cough with those leaves on long stems.  I would expect those to take up a lot of surface area in the grow room, and be stretchers like my SC does.

Nice looking plant there.  Nice use of topping.  It looks pretty similar to my SC when it was vegging.  I meant stretching more in the first weeks of flower, rather than the growth stage.  Do the internodes stay relatively short when you flower it as well?

Are you talking about Coda's plant? I haven't topped any of mine.

Couldn't really tell you, the one girl I have flowering right now went straight from the clone closet to flowering.  So she was pretty short and the stretching was minimal.  Check out my growlog for pics if you want.

There have been some major changes in this grow:

I've moved two more of the veg plants into flowering (1x sleestack and 1x kushberry) leaving 4 plants in veg.

Also, I've had an autopot setup kicking around forever now and finally decided to put it to use. I never liked their 2gal pots but it never occurred to me until today that my regular 3gal white pots might actually fit. Well shit, they fit perfectly! I've checked out a lot of autopot grows and haven't seen anybody else doing this, but I'm sure people would if they knew about it.



I dropped the 4 remaining veg plants right in to the autopots @ PH 5.9 & EC 1.4:



Top Left: Kushberry x Skunk #1
Top Right: OG #18 x Skunk #1
Bottom Left: LA Confidential x Skunk #1
Bottom Right: Sleestack x Skunk #1

I really have no idea what to expect from these, but I kind of like them.

    #383121 - 03/13/10 09:31 PM (8 years, 11 months ago)

- 4 in veg. They're in the same places as my last post but some have been rotated. They seem to like the autopots so far, the OG18 at the top right has EXPLODED and the others have done ok. I really like the autopots in the veg tent though, so I'm going to pull these back out and handwater during flowering.

- 9 in flower (7 females in small pots around the middle, 2 unconfirmed in large pots at the top middle)

This grow is starting to get fun.

Looking good, the sleestack looks a little hungry.  The OG18 is looking bad ass though, can't wait to see the buds on that one.

Yeah, the autopots are great but not meant for multiple strains IMO. The sleestack x skunks are by far the most nute sensitive of the bunch too, from sativa dom and N burning easily, to that one which is indica dom and seems to be K hungry. I'm curious if you're going to notice the same thing when you run the sleestacks.

Yeah! I'm very excited for this one.

What do you mean when you refer to Autopots.  I've never run across this term before.  Are you letting the containers sit in a reservoir that they bottom feed the medium allowing you to "Auto-Grow"?

I'm just hypothesizing... Looks great though.  I always think "man I like how clean the setup is".

Its just the brand name of a pre-assembled version of what you describe. You could DIY the same thing for 1/4 of the price, but they are *extremely* well made. They also have hands down the most simple yet innovative pump design I have seen, the smartvalve.

Thanks man, that means a lot. You already know I feel the same about your setup.

I just moved the last 4 plants into 12/12. It won't be long now :smile:

Here is the first skunk family portrait since Feb 11th:


Notes:

At this point I'm expecting 12-13 females from 14 seeds, which is ironic since I was genuinely hoping for a 50/50 split. So cannagods, if you're listening, please make that OG18 turn out male.

I don't know what day of 12/12 any of the small-pot plants are on. I know a few of them are 7-10 days behind the rest though.

The three tallest plants are kandy kush, including that one in the back I was 99% sure was going to be male. I have to supercrop that one today actually.

All of them have been lollipopped.

:peace:
