Well after 10 months and various environmental conditions my Sundae Driver Mother decided to herm. I’m tryin not to toss it because I’m thinking the change from indoor to outdoor is what induced the herm and not genetics (hopefully). I’ve read about the male chamber for collecting pollen and last year went as far as purchasing the air tight totes for this exact purpose when I purchased the Sundae Driver Reg seeds from Cannarado Genetics. This plant has outgrown the size of the pollen chambers and now I’ll have to find another way or alter the design of the chamber somehow. I need to collect pollen or seeds from this one for sure.
Harvested the scrog after 81 days. Smells are grape from the grape biscotti sundae and a heavy fruit/bubblegum aroma from the pink runtz.
Drying will be a chore for a while to say the least, but I have a plan..
Normally I dry in my bigger grow room where I can control the environment. The room is occupied at the moment so I’ll dry these in the 3x3 vivosun tent at night that sits in the garage.
Temps at night in my garage are 50-60F & 60-70% RH, perfect for drying. During the day temps are 70-80F but in the bigger grow room lights are out during the hotter temps (8a-8p) and temps during lights out are 65-68F so, on the days that temps are over 68F in my garage I’ll hang them in the grow room until the sun goes down then back in the tent they’ll go. Shouldn’t be bad for a week or so.
Clones for next run are doing well. Now that the scrog run is over I’m able to move the clones out of the 3x3 and into the 4.5x3 and add six clones that were vegging under the sun. They’re a little light green from the storms we’ve had consecutive days and nights, but they’ll be ok.
I’ll flower 16 of these clones, the two smaller ones on the left won’t be ready when the others are. I’ll also set this beautiful Fire OG girl free along with the clones. She’s been growing fantastically and I’m loving her structure, there should be some nice flowers that come along with her.
Man, this has been a roller coaster ride with this Sundae Driver x Biscotti Sundae mother. It’s now a confirmed father instead of a mother.
‘It’s been growing for 10 months and I’ve saw nothing to lead me to believe it was a male. Normally male sacs would be showing after 6 weeks or so in veg but this one showed nothing up until a week ago when I diagnosed the sacs as hermaphrodite instead of male. Boy was I mistaken! Seeing what I had I grabbed some foil to catch what pollen I can, I also placed some on the floor underneath. I collected some and I’ll pollenate a few branches of various strains I have getting ready to flower in a week or so.
Trimmed (but not final) from Sunday to Tuesday morning. I would’ve been finished Monday but things didn’t go as planned, so finished up Tuesday morning.
Drying for 14 days had the rh in cure bags spot on at 60-63 in all but 4 of them. Those were smaller plants and rh in those were in the 55-58% range. They smell great! Waiting on flavors to come through now. Today is day 13 of cure
