What's up everyone as usual I'm a little late to the party but I figured I'll try to post regularly from here on out. Anyway this year I am doing all different strains in 65 gallon smart pots and everything's going real smooth so far. Ghost train haze started flowering 4 days ago and other than that just waiting for the rest to start.

very nice... I want to do that in my greenhouse next year in the early spring so I can get them out early without them flowering, then revegging ... the string of shop lights is a great idea... what kind of bulbs are you using? is it working?
I did that this spring. The greenhouse is great for getting an early start but the days are too short. The glow is unbelievable. IMG_1280.jpeg

These are from my raw diesel. I had absolutely no idea what it was when I first noticed it so I did some research and it looks like its variegated leaves. Some people said it's bad and some people said it's highly prized and sought after so who the hell knows but it looks pretty cool, especially the leaves where exactly half of it is yellow and the other half is green.20200724_105739.jpg20200731_145225.jpg
 
Any ideas of what this is? Only the ends of a couple branches of one of my Dinafem OG Kush’s.

Could it be Phosphorous or potsssium deficiency?

I do have a grape cultivar 15 feet away that has black rot, but this is only affecting these few leaf sets so I’m doubtful black rot is the cause.
Locally this is called tar tip. People say its a deficiency/excess but I dont recall anyone ever getting to the bottom of it.

Heard we may have a storm rolling in


Last few frames looks like its leaving Ohio/West Virginia heading into Pennsylvania now but heading toward us. I havent looked yet but do you know when its supposed to reach us?


EDIT:
Zoomed out a little more.

Going to be a good blow down here on the SouthCoast, batten down the hatches! Plants are just rounding into flower with two males left to chop. Hopefully the four girls in the ground come through unscathed.

Well I had my mint chocolate chip herm on me, had been an experiment since feb, and ended up putting her in the outdoor line up because of a seed order mishap... Thought I had eased her into the outdoor light pretty good this year, started to reveg a bit, and just last night had noticed a branch on the edge had herm'd... There could have been other reasons, that branch was exposed to a street light, and a house security light but both are well over 350-500+ feet away... There is also a chance a friend pulled onto the grass to park about a week ago and had the headlights pointed on her for a bit of time during her dark. The stem had split back in march from wind when bringing inside and out with no support, and was interesting to see the repair of the split. It could be just from the strain itself.. I also have a white widow regular photo freebie from canuk seeds that just showed sex to be male. There is another white widow reg and an og kush that Im still not 100% positive on... pretty sure the other widow is female but will wait and see.

Its funny because just yesterday I posted to someone saying I wish I had some males for pollen, and of course, few hours later I've got two.

I bagged up the mint chocolate chip will neutralize and then compost both. I did take a branch of each to keep indoors and harvest some pollen from both, although I mainly want the widow, I wasnt a huge fan of the mint chocolate chip, was a gifted seed from someone that had found it in a bag from the Brockton dispensary In Good Health.. and their bud is absolutely terrible, so I probably wont use the MCC pollen at all. As for the WW im also not a big fan of canuk seeds so I really dont even want that either... But good to have on hand I guess... better than nothing.

The other bag seed from wareham dispensary (Cornbread.. other topped bag seed to the left of the MCC, is another one that I am keeping an eye on.. Although shes a definite female, I dont trust the herm... As for the gorilla glue fems... well they're known to herm from their parents/genetics so we'll have to see how that turns out. Got to stay vigilant.

Pics to show which ones Im referring too... Could've been worse.

I understood that herms are likely to make more herms in their seeds or using the pollen.

The same thing happens when STS is used to convert a female to a male. People do this with female clones trying to keep the strain / pheno and end up with bad seed.

Yup, not a big fan of it for sure... Although I have grown plenty of strains known to herm (kush's are my all time favorite, many of their hybrids are known to herm), GG in the past has done well for me, Ive had pretty good luck with them actually..... Although you're definitely right that herm pollen/genetics will pass along those traits to its offspring, even if one generation doesnt see the trait expressed which can just lead to instability in your strain... Idk, Im not going to upset if they dont end up maturing and producing pollen, in fact Im going to set them up and pretty much never see them in person, very rarely at least so theres least amount of cross contamination potential.

It's that time of year that everyone should be looking for male plants or hermies. It sucks that "breeders" sell expensive seeds knowing that there is a high likelihood of hermies. Check your plants closely.
