Smoke report on AK4Way. Sun grown in pots in used soil with a dash of Dr. Earth Flowergirl and water. Also did three or so foliar applications of neem emulsified in Dr Bronners Peppermint to fight leaf fungus (it's everywhere not just the garden) pre flower. Which worked like a charm until I couldn't do it anymore, no residual smell btw.

Slow dried on stems for two weeks at 70/70 +/- 5 for each and about four days in the jar so far.

Sort of sweet smelling all the way through flower other than a little hay-ish off gassing during the dry. Not exactly fruit or baked goods but maybe a more like a fruit danish kinda thing. The really nice thing is that taste follows through to the smoke as well. I'm not really in a sweet smelling cannabis mode right now but I find this really pleasant to smoke. It has a nice lingering taste after exhale and makes me want to smoke more just for the pleasure of smoking.

It's a bit of a creeper takes me maybe 20 mins to feel the full effect. Super relaxing and full body. I think this is the kinda thing that people who get really sleepy smoking would describe it as such but I just find it really chill.

I would say this ticks the box as to what people describe as a classic example of an indica. Would grow again.
what kind of conditions did you have? Im asking because i got these a while back thinking theyd be good for outdoor, but didnt end up taking the plunge and instead ran the matty cakes, gasolime, vintage bb, and gst skunk. Plan to double back sooner or later. Really large dense "indica" colas tend to harbor hidden mold where im at due to the constant humidity fluctuations and morning dew, the major factor depending on the plants fungal resistance it seems.

Based on AKBB's description, these are pretty mold resistant

"On the mom side, we have an original Mandelbrot bred F8 Royal Kush x Truth OG. On the dad side, we have a black afghani crossed to Strayfox's Iraqi indica. This plant has proven to have very consistent profiles with over 80% of phenotypes having super hardy single-stem expressions that are perfect for SOG grows. AK4Way is extremely weather resistant (having been known to stand temperatures in the 40s) and almost entirely mold and mildew resistant. The flowers can consist of extremely sensual Afghani perfumes, and of course some stick-your-head-in-the-gas-can fuel. "

thus my inclination... seems like local seasonal conditions really test the endurance of even the most rugged cultivars... currently have a few plants going through low 30s the last few nights and seemingly withstanding surprisingly well; really accelerates their development (somewhat obviously). Some plants that had nearly all white pistils just a few days ago appear to be very close to ripeness now and developing cloudy trichomes

Hot and humid midwest, I ran four cultivars this summer on the patio with varying degrees septoria. The worst I ended up not even flowering as it was ravaged. The rest struggled, no PM or real pest problems really just the pervasive fungus. Bodhis DLA 12 had the least affected leaves. I grew in 20 gallons and topped the AK a ton so no huge colas and only one smaller one had any sign of rot.

I walked back into the room after pulling a couple of toners last night and it still smelled great with a slightly floral smell. It’s rare that that happens for me and that’s definitely a huge plus in my book.

2 of my PHK's are green leaning, hashplant looking. This is the purple one. The leaves didn't fade much after 7-10 days of flush, while the green ones faded to yellow. I took the 1st green down today, and the 2nd will come down tomorrow. I will probably take the tops from the purple PHK, and give the mids another week. Need to consult my stereo microscope first.phk.jpg

Beautiful job Taos.

Man, that PHK is great, I smoked the first couple of joints of one plant yesterday and it was delicious. Strong orange flavors with maybe a touch of fuel and bubblegum. Very sticky and dank, and good potency.
I grew three outdoors, one was fully green, one has purple buds with green leaves, and the other has purple buds and purple leaves.
The green one and the one with purple buds and green leaves grew like a Sativa, tall plants and very long stretchy branches.

The plant with purple buds and purple leaves grew totally different, it is relatively short bushy, branchy, and compact, it grew into a perfect rounded bush without any topping very classically Indica in apperance. They all smell basically the same, mandarin orange with a touch of fuel.

I started harvesting the green one around the 15th of Oct, the other two are still in the ground, the one with purple buds and green leaves is ready to start coming down and the fully purple one - despite looking the most Indica - still needs a week or so.

I have only smoked the green pheno so far but I would totally grow this strain again based on what I have sampled, the flavor is excellent.

The only negative that I would mention is that the plant with purple buds + green leaves and the fully green plant needed some support for sure, the branches were pretty floppy, but that's not a big deal.

My internet sucks right now so I can't seem to upload pictures but it is a very photogenic strain.

Those Romulan developing any terps yet? Just wondering what they smell like. It's been over a decade since I grew Romulan and I'm not even sure what I used to have was the real deal.
Both are sweet and fruity. I can’t put my finger on it, familiar yet unique, like a candy you would get in an Asian market maybe? Tropical. Slight pine funk in the back? I don’t trust my nose anymore

Oh wow, that is exactly how I remember it! That candy flavor... it's not floral, it's like candy. Thanks!

Sounds like this is the one!

I pulled my outdoor PHK last week. (Central Vermont). Nearly 100% milky, with amber beginning to show here and there. Did the best of all plants re: disease and pest resistance.

Green pheno with leaves fading to yellow. No purple on mine, but the pistils did have a light pink hue to them. Not as much orange smell as you describe, but it is there. Fuel and complex spices mix in. Def sticky, very dense buds, branches did not need support, but it was a big plant, 8’ tall by 15’ around, untopped, with some supercropping so it would fit under my shelter.

Have not smoked the flower yet, but the finger hash from trimming is very potent in a classic indica way. I like.

I started 3 of these, got three females and gave 2 away. Is anyone getting males from these seeds?

And finally, I did run one Freezeland from AK in a 5 gal pot. Also finished mid Oct with dense dense buds, great disease resistance and some unique powdered milky perfume smells. Buds turned lavender toward the end, real pretty. Cannot comment on potency yet, but am excited about the PHK x Freezeland seeds I made for future exploration.

I like that smell description on Freezeland. Looking forward to hearing the rest of your experience with it.

I started 4 and got 4 females, that's pretty good odds.
I hope to find some males next time I plant them, this is the first year in over a decade that I didn't do any pollination.

Thanks for reviewing the Freezland, I've been interested in that one for a while.

I have one Skunk Quabbage going outside right now, so far it is a frost factory, super frosty. Smells are not super strong and are kind of hashy fuely right now, but it's taking its sweet time, needs at least another week probably two. I should be able to get it to finish up in time, I've got it in a hoop house with a little heater for nighttime, but it's taking a little longer than is ideal for my climate.

A tester report for the PHK from Bakersfield somewhere in this thread mentioned getting 11 of 11 females!

I will post back about about Freezeland smoke in a few weeks.

Thanks for the skunk quabbage info, that’s a late finish, hope it pays off.

Another season in the books, and again, AKBB genetics did fantastic.
