    Swami is a hippy, the good kind. I sent the money and should get the seeds next week. Nice to order 15 and he gives you 20 or whatever. The freebies tend to be awesome as well. Kahuna bud last time.

    I will drop a couple BOH next run, do not have space for more.

    I have been debating whether or not to post just how good of deal Swami/Gascanistan gave me. I dont want to put em in an awkward situation where EVERYONE expects insane deals from him. To be honest, I cant even think of it ad a "deal". He flat out BLESSED me & my little group of medical growers/patients, & he deserves the praise. So... I sent him $114, hoping for a pack of NL5 haze & a freeby or 2. He sent me NINETY seeds!!! Split between NL5 haze & BO X 85 RKS. Whats more, is that this blessing came at a difficult time for us. A member of our family died on tuesday... very hard. His incredible blessing really raised eveyones spirits & I will never forget what he did for us. THANK YOU SWAMI!

    He gives what he gives, and Ive also bought from him several times, and hes always been more than generous. I also buy with no expectation of extra seeds. I figure he advertises 15, I expect 15. NO More No Less.

    IMHO the genetics are worth more to me than any measly $100, if this stuff is as good as what I had. Id pay $100 for 5 seeds if they are the real deal from what I remember. 1 good mother, and its on. And from what I had there were never any duds potency wise.

    I'm also really stoked about the RKS/BO but we haven't started any of them.

    I hear yah. A single keeper mother to chop clones off of is almost priceless. The BO X 85' RKS/Guadalajara has us pretty excited... both parents are real deal hippy head stash. For those who know ;)
    But seriously, some of the old RKS was the stank reekin'est , most pungent, acrid skunk-musky weed there is. The only modern weed Iv smelled that "loud", is maybe Chemdawg-D? Back in the early-mid 90's, we called it "expando weed", because it was so dang potent, it seemed like even moderate hits expanded in your lungs and made you cough. Back to back bong hits of it were almost unbearable lol In a bong, it really can be a 1-hit quit. Im curious to see what expressions will dominate... will def be taking clones off of everything before flowering. Considering a sea of green grow, up the numbers, tease out as many expressions as possible each run. Dreaming of a keeper momma :D

    My original stuff was also Expando, and like you say. You ARE going to cough. I don't care who you are. And it tasted of the finest hash. I'm also hoping the BOH may give it that refined hash taste, and is also another reason I got the Hazeman G13 x HP to breed with a male Nl5 x Hz.

    I also believe a Male G13 x HP into the BOH would be interesting.

    A buddy of mine asked yesterday if I wanted to be a partner in a grow room. Hes got the place, a really nice place, 0 experience, and we make a joint venture of it, split the bills/product 50/50, and I take care of it, and show him what I'm doing. I'll supply the seeds.

    So tomorrow I'm ordering more of the BOH, and NL5 x Haze from Swami. I already have 37 x BO/RKS, 18 The One x Paki Chitral Kush
    I'm going to start 15 of the BOH, 15 of the NH5 x Hz, 18 of the BO x RKS, 18 x The One x Paki Chitral Kush.

    2 of my other buddies, who I also gave seeds have each 15 NL5/Hz, 10 BOH, 10 Hazeman/Nevils 88 G13 x HP

    Other buddy has 10 G13/HP, 15 BOH, 15 NL5/Hz.

    So out of those, hopefully we can find some real keepers, but im sure that probably every plant will be seriously potent.

    Like I said, and you know. If this stuff pans out, I wont have to look for any other genetics. I'll be like the Seed Vault in Greenland once I find out that this stuff is as good, or better than what I originally had. I'll buy all I can afford.
    For the past few years Ive been buying a lot of guitar effects pedals. I spent $1000 on 2 of them a month ago, so my quest for guitar pedals ( I have $8000+ worth) will be curtailed for the quest for Swami Seeds. If they pan out.:weed::weed::bigjoint::bigjoint::bigjoint::bigjoint:
    I'll veg them in 3 gal containers to save on Veg Space, and then when theyre flowered, I'll transplant them into 5 gal buckets. I usually grow 2 big plants in 20 gallon containers x 1 x 1000w Hortilux HPS, but the smaller plants/containers will allow for me to see more females, of which you already know, and I can still judge production. If they do good in a smaller container, theyre going to kill in a larger 1.

    I'm also basically primitive. I use Promix BX, and Hand Water. Nothing fancy

    I'm also going to order 2 of the Gavita 1000w. We'll use a regular Hortilux 1000w HPS Superbulb for Veg, for now, as I already have 1, and then we'll get another Gavita 1000w DE with a Veg Bulb.

    I'm also looking into the Nanolux 1000w DEs

    That was my hope as well.
    But I was bummed with my first pack attempt.
    I started a whole pack of the Kahuna x Mr Greengeens Maui and not one germinated!!!
    I was going to add this strain to some other Hawaiian strains I have for a larger more diverse gene pool, but didn't happen.
    I also have nl#5 x haze and Zazan.
    Hope this was just a fluke, as I am really hoping his genetics are legit.
    Have you seen any grows from anyone?
    Best of luck with your magic beanz!

    BOEL is known in my local area pretty well - check out swami's website for details. Theyre legit. What seems to happen, is ppl find their "one" (or ones), & just disappear into the woodwork. Two of the most ridiculously potent, AND over priced strains ever bought by my friends & I, were grown by ppl who grew it JUST for themselves, only selling occasionally, & with a "we both know its expensive... take it or leave it" attitude. Both growers were obsessive in their secrecy, too. But then again, that was the bad old days of prohibition. Even so, I still notice that the NEXT LEVEL ladies tend to be hoarded/taken off into isolation. But yes, Swami is legit.

    Nice, congrats man :). Team-ups are always more fun than growing alone if you have the right person. Def jealous of your indoor space! Lol Yah, I went LED not too awfully long ago. Needed to go tent style. The tight space sucks, def have to top& train the hell out of tall girls to make em fit - but I love the full spectrum LED's that are out. Spread isnt the greatest, but is perfect for a tent. Im lovin your breeding plans :) ❗️Grow it, spread it around :)

    BOH is out according to the website. We must have done something here to cause the shortage eh?

    I hope I get my pack, I ordered before the out of stock thing. Been reading up on Neville's Haze and many think it is a legit trip smoke. Can be nervous though, was a lot of the reaction.

    With the sativas I advise to use white light and if you can high Kelvin light. I know no one cares what I think but I advise anyways. The guys who specialize in sativas tend to agree with me though.

    Swami still has the BOH. At least he did last week. It also wasn't listed then, but is in stock.

    Ive also had at least a 90+% germ rate, with a couple weak 1s from those.

    I would message Swami about the Germ Rate, if I was sure it wasn't user error.

    Ive grown with bulbs as low as 2700K & as high as 5000K. I gotta say, not much noticeable dif in the 3000's. I havent seen much dif between 3000k, 3500k & 4000k. The 2700's seemed to produce lankiness in veg... the 5000k was def disappointing in flower. I run 3000k now, doing great. No excessive stretch/lankiness issues. But thats interesting... I'll have to ask around about that. Havent done much sativa lately.

    I do wanna say, that I HAVE noticed a difference between 80 cri & 90 cri of the SAME kelvin - but with a small sample size. A friend ran a side by side grow with 3000k fullspectrum COBs. One side was 80cri, & the other was 90cri. All plants were clones off the same mother, same nutes, same square footage, just dif cri values. Despite the hype, the 80cri plainly outperformed the 90cri to the tune of almost +20% on yield for the 80 vs 90. Now this may have been due to the strain (gdp), but idk.
    Now, the 90cri DID finish almost a week earlier (58 days 90cri, instead of 63days 80cri. But theres plenty of led threads on this, im sure. We popped 3 of the NL5xNH, & 2 of 3 popped within 18hrs of hitting the wet paper towel, the 3rd not too far behind. So no germ issues so far...

    Btw - I only planted 3 seeds (adding them late, to a grow thats already 3 weeks along...), but all 3 popped in under 24 hrs, were moved to starter cups & poked their heads up last night/this morning. I will make an attempt to get pics up... my fiance may have to help me though, as I am def "tech challenged" and cant seem to get it to work when I try to post pics.
    Anyway, gunna flower these 3 early - only givin em a couple weeks before flippin em to flower. The GDP & girl scout I have running are slow-medium growing in veg - at least vertically, anyway. Trained em all wider than they are tall, as Im in a tent. Im just gunna let the nl5haze go - no training- until it catches up in height. And it WILL catch up.
    Yah, the pheno of gdp that I have only grows 2-2.5 ft tall. Short, super grapey pheno. Will see what I can do pic-wise.

    The plant structure of the skunky one will be leggy, on the lanky side. They stretch like crazy, so if youre in a tent, you need to train the hell out of em. Keep bending/tying down any stretching shoots.
