    after looking at the pictures i got a similar impression, going on looks does not mean much i concede to that
    but GSC she looks like a runt to me, yield must be terrible i am not a fan of mutant plants that are unable to build colas

    i was also going to say how much sexier gg4 looks to me anyway and also the yield with that looks much better
    but you kind of got their first

    peace

    Yeah the cola development is weak for GSC. And the purples are harder to get out of them if you are in soil. The hydro run of GSC had more purples in it for sure. And you're right, its kinda hard to tell just by looks.

    One of the locals here has been running GSC crosses and GG4 crosses and he tossed out the GSC crosses in favor the GG4 crosses. I passed the forum cut to him for his own testing to see if it makes the "cut".. At least he will see the original phenotype. I dont have the most sensitive pallete, but I get more chocolate flavors with GSC, but the GG4 cross I tried was a better daytime smoke, but not as good flavor wise.

    Heh, sorry.. wandered off topic.. its not a GSC vs GG4 thread.

    Thanks for the info, yeh its not a GSC v GG4 thread, its just the latter is very sexi
    but as far as i know i might prefer smoking the GSC as i have not tried either, just going on the photos around here

    peace :)

    Yes wanna try GSC but most sold by banks are a fugazi version of the real thing. Shame..

    Well the only way I think you can get GSC thats true to the phenotype from seed is a S1. From what I understand, there will be differences but very limited variation. You would think that a breeder by now had a forum cut they selfed.

    I've been running this GSC mom for a year, so I'm thinking of doing a S1 project, or a Tissue culture. When I got the clone it only tested around 16% with a high of 20%.

    So what breeders have the s1 cut?

    I dont know..

    Here's the problem.. How do you you verify the breeder does have the real GSC forum cut?. Then after the cut is selfed to make an S1, the seeds will have to be grown out to verify it still has the phenotype for the original cut.

    I'm operating under the assumption that my cut of GSC is real. I've observed it has all the traits of the GSC I've seen online. If it is a knockoff I dont think I could tell, the purples, leaf structure, the low yield the way it smells. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck... then it must be a cookie. Is it authentic?.. Dunno, we dont have access here to a person that could do a genetic fingerprint of GSC.

    If you're in alaska, I'll hook you up with a GSC cut... cuts like these should be shared not horded..

  10. Here are a few pics of my (100% LEGIT!) Platinum Girl Scout Cookies (from DHN, No Fookies here, lol.). Equipment & System: 10x10 Gorilla Grow Tent, 2 x 1000W HPS (Hortilux lamps) in 8" Raptor AC Hoods (sealed system with co2 supplementation). Medium is 6" Hugo Rockwool Blocks (W/coco covers) on a Coco Mat, in a 4x8 Flood Table. Grow system is: Recirculating, Top Feed, Drip Irrigation Hydro System (Using RO Water). Nutrients= Mills + Other Additives/Growth Enhancers/Biological Inoculants.

    We had some issues that prevented us from realizing this strains full potential, however GSC is known for producing Below Average to Low Yields. The only people I know of who get above average to high yields from legit GSC strains are experienced growers with very dialed in (finely tuned so to say) systems. With that taken into consideration we didn't do too bad actually, especially considering the issues we had during the grow. My camera REALLY SUCKS so I had a hard time getting it to focus properly, I took a TON of pics but many were too blurry to even use. I'll borrow a better camera & post some better pics soon but for now tell me what you think?

    They look fucking delicious!! One question as i noticed it was happening on some of my outdoor plants,
    Do you know what causes they sugar leaves edges to curl in like that??
    I always thought heat stress caused leaf edges to curl upwards but its been pretty cold lately.
     
  12. I'm not sure exactly why they do that, however in my case heat was a bit of an issue for the top 6" of the canopy, so I'm sure that contributed to the curling but I don't think its a main cause. Every strain of high quality genetics that Ive grown, strains that produce a shit ton of frost, I have noticed that the "Resin Railed" leaf edges always seem to curl to some degree. It seems the more dense the trichomes are on the leaf edges the more they curl, so I'm guessing it has more to do with Genetics and Resin/Essential oil production than anything else. I'm no expert grower by any means, so these are just educated guesses, I'm sure someone more experienced with actual cannabis plant science could, using actual facts, shed some more light on this?

    Nice!.. I've been wondering about the DHN cut. Thanks!. Your pics look good.
     
  14. Here are some more pics of the Platinum GSC we harvested yesterday. These are just some of the smaller nugs that fell off during harvest, I will post pics of our better top colas soon. For our first run with Hydro I don't think we did too bad, what do you fellow farmers think?

    I think it looks great, hydro cookies for me had more resin production. The color is correct, just has that "hashy" whitish orange appearance. I'll gladly grind that up and smoke it.

    I like to run cookies in SOG, mainly to work on size. It kinda has limits to size, It just kinda makes nuggets. I know you posted the smaller stuff. but It looks good to me.
