    not sure if these Platinum Buffalo x Barney Rubble will cut the mustard with approx 40% showing deformity/low vigor,
    top pic is the unhealthy specimen, lower pic are healthy pheno's, plants are approx 8" high

    these MK Ultra x C99 are probably the best performers so far this season, about 14" high

    plants are grown outdoors under 5m x 3m x 2m greenhouse frame with approx 8hrs direct sunlight, additional light added from sunset to 2.30am with 2 x 5 watt LED using el cheapo 12 volt timer connected to a solar battery bank, used these timers for a few years & have not had a failure yet, have found using this very low level of supplemented light is adequate as long as plants receive a solid amount of direct sunlight during daytime, with 13hrs daylight ATM plants would no doubt go into flower mode without supplemental lighting

    these Sour Diesel x Chemdog x Romulan x C99 are going well approx 12" high, grateful the real stink of the Sour Diesel x Chemdog x Romulan has gone with the addition of C99 & a much safer plant to grow now, nice stone & lovely mint on the exhale but a medium yield only

    ffs sake i wonder if im talking to my self again here? WTF who cares hehehe!...

    these Platinum Buffalo x GDP x C99 are a wee bit better in that only approx 20% have deformation of grow tips & leaves compared to Plat Buff x Barney Rubble...remains to be seen whether both these crosses will be viable stock as keepers?
    2 lower pics are malformed leaves & growing tips, bottom pic is a healthy pair, overall too low vigor is noticeable

    MK Ultra x C99 approx 3', plants squeezed together but since 12/12 began a few days ago looking forward to thinning out the males to offer room for the girls
    IMG_7993.JPG

    lower 2 pics IHG Platinum Buffalo x Cannarado Barney Rubble, approx 2' high, exhibiting some genetic issues, around 30-40% are like this, i think those types will yield very poorly & possibly may not be grown out again
    IMG_7994.JPG
    IMG_7995.JPG

    Barney Rubble x Cherry Sherbet approx 3' high, this chuck is looking gooooooooood!
    IMG_7996.JPG

    Dynasty Caramel Haze x GDP x C99 approx same dimensions as above

    hi bobqp, thanks there's 'hopefully' some nice crosses there cos until they're fully tested grown out some are bound to be binned, hope those lumberjacks have left your area? how are yours going now?

    sad about those loggers...but good to hear your plants are going well, do you think the budding types may regrow at this time of year outdoors? ive had that happen, bit of a bitch when i was relying on those ones at that time to be budded & not revegging, but the auto's will still bud even in full summer sun i guess?

    Yeah most of my budding plants have started to reveg so ill get a double harvest out of them. The autos are flowering hard. Biggest one is just under 4foot tall average size is 20 inches should harvest the first lot of autos in 3 weeks.

    sounds good, ive never grown auto's but may give them a run at a later date, just got a stupid amount of beans to work through first hehehe, hey i just read somewhere australia may possibly be a full cashless society by 2022...just cards in use, i wonder how people who buy weed will be able to pay for it? just cant imagine what things will be like without cash?
