Nope got 7 foot ceilings, got a Scott's og tall as me n I'm 6'1
Is the lanky 1 super potent??
My 2 buddies have about 25 of them going. 1 persons are 6 weeks, and the others are 1 week..
Another person will be starting 18 more of the NL5/Hz, so out of all of them I should have access to some good phenos.
They grow like weeds.
In reality. Most all of them will be super potent. When I ran it in the 90s, I never found a low potency plant.
O ok because I'm thinking of breedin it to something purple maybe
From what Ive seen, the Male is usually used from the NL5/Hz.
Thats kind of tuff to answer honestly. To me? YES. But if this makes sense, its more a matter of "effect", than it is potency. If you grew out 100 nl5xnh seeds from Swami, you'll almost certainly get a certain number of highly potent, shorter plants... as well as a certain # of potent, taller, more sativa looking plants.
Now both phenos would be potent, but in their own way. The shorter, more indica keepers' potency would be more indica in effect. The taller keepers will be more sativa in effect. There are exceptions of COURSE, but I am speaking in generalities. So, the NL5Xnh that is famously too potent for many, is a sativa dominant pheno. Its not that it has more thc than any other strain - its that its EFFECT is so intense. The mix of thc, cannabinoids, terps & flavonoids is such, that the effect it produces is overwhelming to some - even ME if the situation is right (or wrong lol). Its a mouth twisting, teeth grinding, heart pumping sativa of epic effect. I am not joking or exaggerating when I say that multiple people came back after buying their weed, demanding to know what the weed was laced with. They didnt ASK, "did you lace this?", they were CERTAIN it was laced, because the effect really was THAT intense. Its def not for everyday, all day day use. At least not for me. GDP is my go-to for that, green crack or durban poison for wake n bake
Exactly Youre gunna get quality/potency. Its just the effect that will differ.
Also- if anyone grows out a male from Swami's gear, (or plans on it) privately msg me if youre willing to trade, share, whatever. Iv got a ton of NL5xhaze (sativa leaning), some Blue Orca X 85' Roadkill Skunk/guad, as well as Jack Herer, & Im def looking for some "Swami" pollen for breeding.
I got those on a pre order from Firestax a little while back.
I never had any problems with anything I have gotten from stax before?
But who knows, anything is possible.
I will message him and see what he says.
Thanks, and I will ignore your last comment.
I'm hoping to keep 2 different phenos each of both the NL5/Hz, and the BOH for mothers.
The BO x RKS should be really interesting. I wish Swami would release the Pure RKS/Guad.
I actually got lucky 5 days ago, and a friend who doesn't know how to grow, asked me if I wanted to go in 50/50 on a room. Hes got a YUGE house. Basement is at least 30 x 50, but I'm not greedy, and only want to use 2 x Gavita 1000w flowering lights, and 2 x 600w Gavitas for Veg. I ordered 2 1000w Gavitas for flowering, but will use a Hortilux HPS 1000w for veg for now. I think 2 x 600s would be better for spreading the light, but m not sure.
I told him Id buy all the lights, and some other stuff, and we will split the electric bill, and Ill of course take all the care of them, but will show him what I'm doing.
I also wonder what the light spectrum trade off is if you dim a Gavita Veg Bulb? Loss of Blue ???
Not sure on the blue spectrum question - Dont know a whole lot about Gavitas. But the 2 600's will for sure give a better spread than a single 1000, so youre def thinking right. Thats awesome, though. Ive got some outdoor space I can use next summer... but Im forced to do the twist & tie & train thing to keep em off the tent ceiling As much as I bitch about space, though, I WILL admit that Im loving how friggin easy it is to keep my #'s where I want them... RH always in the 45-55% range, temp always 74-79F. CO2 is a crap shoot because I dont have a meter, but if you exhaust out the tent's ceiling, you dont have the same co2 waste u otherwise would. But I digress... man, I stayed up late smokin pot... just woke up & Im still stoned from last night! Hahaha
I agree... def say something to Swami. We've gotten lucky with 100% germination so far. While I only popped 3, the ppl I gifted seeds to havent had any fail to pop either. Makes me wonder if the seeds you bought got too hot or cold? Exposure to high humidity can "dud" them out, too, just like it does with pollen.
Yea, that's kind of what I was thinking, maybe they got hot.
I sent him an email last night, let you know what he says.
A guy at Gavita told me that its better to run a 600 than to Dim the 1000 as you WILL Lose Blue.
I also like to Bend my plants over when I grow in 20 gallon containers inside. I wont top them, but start training them to grow Horizontally from a young age. Ill have to many this time, as Im using many plants in 5 gallon containers to find a few/couple mothers. Next time I'll grow less plants, but in bigger containers.
Nice. I do the same thing depending on strain- bending them over. If theyre shorties, like the pheno of gdp Im running, Ill just gently train em diagonal sideways. The little 3 gallon fabric pots do well for tent grows. This is a 3&a half week old gdp with no ties, just a bit of pulling and prodding here and there, with selective light pruning.
Hmm... not sure what I did wrong, but I def screwed up that last post, sorry. Anyway, the bushy one is just being lightly lst'd, no tying down. The 2nd pic is another gdp, a "sister" that was recently stripped bare and is starting to come back. I like how differently they grow depending on how you train em. As you can see, the heavily trained gdp suffered a cal mag deficiency - got too dry & ph dropped too low to uptake as much mag as she needed. Fixed now, but the marks remain. So long as she keeps stretching those shoots out, thougj, Im happy
So jimi, I saw a guy on another forum named jimihendrix58. Is that you? If so, you have a lot of experience with the types of smoke I am looking for. Late sixties to early seventies is the sweet spot. I am sure there was great imports prior to the sixties but that is all lost in the haze as it were. There probably strains to die for hundreds or thousands of years ago as long as we are digging up the past.
Swami said all is well in his email. I take it that I will get my BOH 3rd eye beans.
Id say that's probably me @ jimihendrix58.
I should get my BOH and NL5 x Hz today. Then Ill start them.
