Karma Genetics Headbanger / Mr D0p3sauce Grow Blog =]

Hello every1, So l have never done a grow journal ever but I decided to do my first 1 on ThcFarmer. I will show you my run with these seeds from start to finish with Karma Genetics HeadBanger. I decided on HeadBanger strain because this was supposedly the closest I could find to original super gassy straight pungent Sour Diesel in a seed form. =) from time to time I might show you shots of other things I got going on at the same time in my setup but I will mainly focus on the HeadBanger. Anyways hope everyone who's reading enjoys this journal.

Feel free to drop your opinions and thing you think I can do to improve. Negative or positive I can take a punch. Lol construtive criticism is always a good thing to me.

Ok, so I ordered some beans from cannapot.com on September 28th on a thursday. They received payment on the 29th friday. They didnt ship till Oct 2nd Monday because the post office didn't run on weekends.... I just now received the beans on Oct 10th Tuesday. Overall pretty satisfied with shipping times with this company... I got to say I really like there packaging. Very clean and nice looking. (Karma)

Strange tho, in all my growing experience I've never ran Into seeds that don't have stripes or black line on the seeds... These are a first for me.. Maybe its just genetics... Oh well guess we will see what happens. It came with 12 beans. I think I'm only gonna pop 6 of them for now.

I will try my best to update this grow journal as much as possible with alot of pix when ever I have a chance and there is something worthy of a pic. The good and the ugly, you will see it all. =D Hopefully we can all just chat, grow, exchange new techniques, and just have some fun conversation about growing...

This is a preview of what you will be staying tunned in for. Hopefully the HeadBanger will be nice and easy to take care of like This strain. This is what Conspiracy Pie aka (ConPie) my personal strain made by me currently looks like. It's in day 2 week1 of flower.
 
So I threw the beans in a shot glass last night Oct 11th around 1am with some bottled water from Costco and wrapped it up with saran wrap and placed it in my veg room at 77f. I then covered the shot glass with a solo cup to make it dark. Around 9pm same day I now noticed all the beans have split. So i decided to pot them in coco about 1-1.5 inches from the top. And flooded the table to water the cups.

So far all 6 out of 6 have split and are now in a solo cup. Now I just sit back and wait for them to break the surface. Germination was 100% but let's see how long it will take till they all look like a bean sprout.

Very nice. I would not worry that the seeds had no stripes. Have run across lots of seeds like that and they were just fine.

Hey, thanks again bro. It was your recomendation that made me buy the karma beans. I looked them up and from everything I can find these are suppose to be very pungent smelling. Can't wait to finish.

So today I woke up and All beans have now surfaced. Off to a good start.

These are some of the other strains that will be its neighbors and take up some of the tray. Skywalker Og, Louie 13 Og, Herjiuana Og, and Og18. Took me awhile to get all these cuts straight from LA. As you guys can see, i like gassy strains or anything with a pungent after kick. I've ran Sour Diesel so many times only to always find I have been sold generic cuts or that it's been crossed with something. Got tired of that so now I'm running these beans from karma. Hopefully it's close to the Sour D I remember.

In the other 3 trays will all be my strain ConPie.

Lol. Yeah I hope so too. I've got a good memory of the Sour D I tried like in the late 90s early 2000s..... A friend use to bring some over here to the west coast... But I haven't seen him in a while. Anyways. Nothing I've ran as Sour D ever even came close to the real thing... It has such a unique pungent flavor. And even after burning a J. You get that awesome flavor stuck in the back of your mouth.... haven't been able to find that in a long time... Hopefully this will come close.

I’ve always wanted to try the HB and see if I could find a pheno that shows what you were wanting (gassy)

Good luck (subscribed !) i hope a treasure pheno :)


Keep it up
 
So i just got done potting a few clones that will be sharing a tray with the HeadBanger. We have

Here is how all the girls look together as happy neighbors.

I also topped off the coco. The stem was getting pretty lanky, was afraid it might get to tall and fall over and snap. I had that happen a couple times starting seedlings with out any tooth pick or skewer sticks to brace the seedlings up.
 
November 8th update. So the Headbanger seedlings were looking A little more yellow. I believe it's a calmag deficiency.... I transplanted all the OG mix clones to larger pots of coco because they will begin to flower in 1 week. As for the Head banger they were to small To flower so i transfered them into another room where I hold mothers. They were also transplanted Into soil.

I added a little cal mag to correct them. We shall see how they do in a week.
 
November 18th update. They been repotted to there new home. Now in promix and added some mycorrhizae to the roots directly and fed with little extra calmag... They are greening up and looking real nice and happy. In a few weeks. I will take a few clones from the 6 HeadBanger mothers or fathers then flip em. From there I will keep the largest male and all the females. After 1 season I will pick thru all females for the number1 keeper pheno

This is all the Conspiracy Pie
20171114_150806.jpg

This is my strain ConspiracyPie aka ConPie. It is Conspiracy Kush from TGA crossed with a Cherry Pie clone... I plan to keep the largest male HeadBanger and cross it with the ConPie... The ConPie is 8-9 week strain. Nice nugs, with a short and bushy wide structure. Has alot of color variation in the final weeks. Smells like gas, kush, with fruity notes on top. Im hoping by crossing the HeadBanger, wich is a 9-11week strain. To bring down the flowering time to 8-10 weeks. All while bringing more kush and diesel flavor to the ConPie. Hopefully the offspring will still have alot of purple and color variation.

Very nice Con pie!!! Curious why you are just keeping the biggest male out of the headbangers?

Oh I'm keeping all the females. But I will end up just keeping 1pheno after running it. For the males. I just look for the 1 with the most vigor and fast growing. Doesn't have to be the tallest. Usually the widest and healthiest looking 1 with the most vigor seems to be the 1 i cross things with. I also try to find the ones that put off the most fragrance too. All in hopes of passing down the most robust vigor and growth, and flavor or smell. I wish I knew a way to predetermined wich 1 will pass down the most potency... I could keep all the males and pollinate the ConPie. But I would have to seperate all the males in different tents with the ConPie clone to pollinate. To know wich male has the best traits I'm looking for. I would also run the next round of seeds... Finish that 2nd generation. From there i can determine wich male was the best out of all the males I kept. By judging wich lot of seeds came out best.

But that would be quite some time invested and extra room I don't have. It would be 2 generations before knowing wich male was the champion. But that is the proper way to do things.
