Over 30 years under this old guys belt.

However this time around I only have 6 pots to grow in.

Caught up btwn just growing 1 strain or doing a pick in mix???

Thinking of Spumoni, Sorbet and currylato from the plug.

Something from humboldt seeds.

Chem cookies from dinafem.

Any other strains that you think I need to give a shot to????

If you're just getting back into it after a couple years I would start with just one pheno. Once you have your environment dialed in then I would go ahead and start doing multi pheno grows.

I bought a packet of GG4 seeds from https://elev8seeds.com/ and they seem to be doing ok. All 10 sprouted but only 8 survived transplant. Looks like the 8 that were left were all female. I was kind of hoping for a male to make seed but I'll just pick the best 6 and put the other two in the outside garden and let them go to flower naturally. I'll take some cuts and root them and decide what I want to do with them.

So you have plants die in a transplant? Ive never even experienced transplant shock in 10 years. They're usually just relieved to see more dirt in my experience. I did super early this time. Like right at 2 weeks or less. The roots were nowhere near the edges of the cup even. I went with a strict never bind never limit approach.

I did the paper towel method to sprout them. 2 of them died when I transplanted them into soil. I must've broken the tap or something that they didn't like.

After I harvest the GG4 I'm gonna do a tent full of Girl Scout Cookies then some Wedding Cake. Grew a ton of Wedding Cake when I was with Jungle Boys in L.A.

Sometimes when you transfer them from paper towel to dirt,it's possible to plant them too deep or if you don't use a very loose mix,the weight of the dirt holds the shell shut or they cant push to the surface. I push a small depression with my finger and cover it with loose dirt/perlite mix,(mist surface as needed to keep it moist) so it can easily break the surface,you also get a much better root system later and overwatering is less likely. I leave them in a domed tray with a heating pad and once they surface I take them out and put them under a shop light.

If you leave them in the paper towel too long and they feel a little bit stuck like velcro. Thats a whole section of those cilia things getting torn off.
Just put them in dirt and wait a week to see a plant. All they need is water. There's no point in seeing the thing start other than "ooo look there's the root".
Not to be a smartass about it.
Also if the soil is on the hot side they tend to adapt quicker. Rather than spending 2 days in a neutral paper towel first.
For various reasons they get aclimated quicker with direct (duds are still duds).

The paper towel thing is just a gimmick. There's no point in it other than watching that very first thing happen. Just plant seed.

Hey I got a question. Does anybody have a more refined hindu kush other than sensi seeds?
Also who has the best pakistani kush.
And straight purple kush. Where's the best place to get any of those?

Not sure if it's the same WIFI but I grew some WIFI OG. Is this the same cultivar cross?

I believe its wifi OG
OK...really nice cultivar but prone to mildew. Other than that it was a pretty hardy plant. Had one run where they got infected with spider mites. I suspect they were of the Mendo Mite flavor. Those F'ers are hard to kill. I abused the hell out of those plants trying to get the mites under control. They didn't even break a sweat and kept on smiling the whole time!!!

Mites tend to ruin the party. Always hope I catch them early.
Predator mites till harvest
Then high performance cleaners and bug spray for 3 weeks in btwn runs.

I’ve had them survive 2 wks and create a problem for the next cycle
