    D_Urbmon and I had a quick off-line conversation and decided to start a thread dedicated to PeakSeedBC. I know that D_Urbmon has some experience with PeakSeedsBC gear and recently got some new C99 crosses as testers... Looking forward to seeing how those turn out...

    I have zero experience with PeakSeedsBC gear and am on my first run...

    Kush Skunk

    Northern Skunk

    Both sets of seeds started germination on 9/22 (39 days ago). They just came out of the flower room where they spent three days in 12/12 to force them to sex. I will be separating the boys from the girls in a few days.

    If you have any experience with PeakSeedsBC gear or would like to grow along with us, please post your comments, pics and results here.

    YA MON! I've had a great experience growing peak beans so far. I fuckin love the price and convenience of ordering.

    I'm curious how are your germ rates Keizer?


    A little background.... despite having grown my first few plants back in 97 or something I am still a novice grower. Until this year I had only ever grown bagseeds in very small numbers and never with a proper HID setup and climate controlled......... but I do have experience with "high tech planted aquariums" using pressurized co2, ferts and T5HO lights. So I guess I'm not a complete newb.

    I've gotta sift through a fuck ton of folders of pictures and stuff. I'll be back in a while once I can organize some of this to post it haha.

    Here's a quick few.....

    Northern Skunk (Northern Lights x Sweet Skunk)

    Only way I can describe it's smell was hashy or earthy, almost spicy, reminiscent of some goldseal mazar i sharif type hashish. It was great. I have no way to compare to other strains but I'll tell ya it was way better than 95% of the shit I have ever bought in my life off the street. I also included some pictures of the dried flower from this plant and a resin closeup on an unobstructed part of the bud but I can't remember which individual plant that was. It was peak though.

    I love taking pictures of beans. They are easy to photograph. :) From left to right:

    C99, C99, Kush x NL, Northernberry, Northern Lights, Northern Skunk, Skunk Berry, Sweet Skunk x C99, Sweet Skunk,

    I was great. Very potent. Better than most shit I have ever bought off the street in my life.. It didn't have any kind of complex high for me to describe. I'm not very good at that either. But like I said earlier I don't really have other strains or breeders to compare to. That was my first actual crop. 8 ladies under 2 600w hid's.

    Around here bags are sold with no names. We don't have dispensaries either nor do I know any other growers. Been smokin dat no name for almost 20 years haha

    Unfortunately I can't really speak on uniformity. Test numbers too small. I only grew 8 ladies. 4 Northernberry, 2 Skunkberry and 2 Northernskunk. 3/4 northernberry's were nearly identical. The 2 skunkberry's were nearly identical. The Northern Skunk's were worlds apart if that speaks for anything.

    I have 15 Kush NL ladies mid flower right now. Decided to keep em a bit smaller but have a few more this time. Got real lucky on this one because I cracked only 25 Kush x NL beans. About 10 of them look identical. The other 5 not much different. A couple shorter, a couple taller. 1 has a definite sativa leaf phenotype. But I honestly suspect there is a chance that he gave me Kush x Blueberry on accident. Or else I'm just fucking high hahaha. They look exactly like the kush berry on his website and they have definite sweet berry tones to the nose. They look nothing like the kush NL pictured on the website. Either way I'm happy with the plants if it is KB and not KN.

    One of the Northernberry's pre harvest. I pushed this plant to 9.5 weeks(everything else was 9) and flushed for 18 days. I left it in the dark for the last 3 days to see if these silly claims were true. I call bullshit on this whole darkness before harvest tomfoolery lol. I didn't notice any difference.

    I never ended up taking dry flower photos of any of the NB's. I will try to grab some soon.

    Kush Skunk - 7/10*
    Northern Skunk - 9/10

    My normal germination rate, when working with "healthy" seed in good conditions, is about 80 - 85%. I had been smoking Sannie's Sugar Punch the afternoon I was transplanting the seedlings from a shot glass to soil. I finished the Northern Skunk and got most of the way through the Kush Skunk when I ran out of something and had to leave the nursery to go get more... Well, when I smoke Sugar Punch I am very easily distracted, loose track of time and forget what I am doing... So needless to say, I got distracted with something else, lost track of time and forgot that I was in the middle of transplanting seeds... I have no idea how much time had passed, but I left 3 or 4 seeds out, with their tap roots exposed to very bright light. When I realized what had happened, I went into "stoner panic mode" and quickly finished my transplanting. I may very well have injured some of the tap roots in my haste to get them in soil.

    Lessons Learned
    1 - No more shotglasses for germinating seeds. I have learned all I need to know from the process. Too much risk involved. Everything straight to soil from now on. Just dropped Kingdom Organic Seeds, Chunky Cherry Malawi and Jordan of the Islands, God Bud, in soil the other day. I will let you know how those go.

    2 - No more Sugar Punch during work hours

    I hear ya man. My last crop I used the paper towel method and I broke a couple seed tails while transplanting them into the peat. This one they went directly into the peat and 100% came up. From now on they go directly into the medium as well. :)

    Interested in the 4 hour scuff and soak. I ditched my heating pad as well...

    Just the standard scuff the hull lighlty with 220 grit sandpaper or the sand paper part on a match book .
    as for the soak im in the boat that thinks if you have the seed in there for too long it absorbs too much water .
    the light scuffing is just to make sure the short soak time activates the seed.:)

    I've never had a problem with the shot glass. I've always done a soak for no more than 48 hours or when they crack, which every comes first. I transplant to rock wool cubed. If a bean is cracked within 48 hours, it will more than likely survive, probably at least 95% chance. If it hasn't cracked in 48 hours, I find I'm around 50% of the bean germinating.

    During transplant, I've never had an issue putting the tap root into the cube. I don't think twice when I do it, and I know I've dropped one or two doing the transplant with no issues.

    I've grown out northernberry and skunk berry, both strains I would happily grow again as they tasted great, smelt delicious and the highs on both were pretty damn good. I'll see if i still have pics and post em up, if they are on my portable drive that is...
    Keizer you'll be happy with them ;)
    Also check out treatingyourself.org there are a few of us over there that have/are growing peaks beans :)

    Nothing too exciting here, just can't wait for chopping time. Back to back plants and I can't wait, been bud less for some time now.

    That warning can come from a mostly harmless incidents. I remember a while back it sad doing it for me and some other. Haven't seen it on this site in a while. Also can help to check settings of do not track and changing your DNS to Google. I don't think the certificate is expired which usually causes that message.

    Yeah sweet as man, pretty sure i definitely have some northernberry and not 100% on the skunk berry :)
    The TY site has been doing it for a while, since they changed over to the new site. It is safe, if i remember i had to reaccept it as safe...

    Yep there ya go, simply add an exception and the warning should disappear. I can check later to see if the certificate is either self signed or expired when I'm done slave laboring
