You guys have convinced me to try out some AKBB gear. Sounds like contacting direct is the way to go for orders as most places are lacking on stock. Can anyone put me on his email so I can shoot him a message and see what he has on hand. TIA

zero nanners on my f1,f2 and f3 TKNL5HAZE keepers. Some wonderful phenos can be found in the packs. Honestly its some of the strongest, best tasting, highest yielding herb ive grown since some ChemD crosses I grew out years ago. I will just let photos speak for themselves. AKBB is hard at work and is bringing the fire! Nanners...not on my selections from his seed, everything looked solid and was on point with his description as well. Especially when sorting through f1-f3 stock. Check your conditions and light leaks for stress inhibitors that can create issues for you guys squawking about nanners and such! Get some AKBB gear cause its unique and dank!

How does she smell?
Still has that funky fermented dark berry thing going on that I noticed during veg. Nothing gassy or skunky at all. Leans more toward dark fruit and generic ‘weediness’. Strong smells and very sticky. Nice structure and strong stems held up well to some windstorms this fall with only a few broken lower branches.

Will also add that this year’s outdoor crop seems a week or two later than years past. Other New England growers seem to be noticing the same. These buds are medium density, which was good for the later finish. The other plant wrapping up is a Bodhi hashplant cross (garfunkle), and it’s nugs are smaller and denser—resulting in more losses to rot.

Big outdoor plants are fun to grow, but not so fun to process by yourself...

Yeah same experience with delayed flower, in MA. I just got some bud rot on my last outdoor plants after two straight days of 100% humidity

Forgive me if asked before, but those who have grown out any of the TKNL5 Haze crosses.....which one has been your favorite? I grew Qrazy Train x TKNL5 Haze this year and loved how sticky the buds got. Might pick up another pack or two of some strains that are crossed with it on my next purchase. Or maybe just the straight TKNL5 Haze

The Tknl5haze standing on its own is incredible herb. You will find keepers in the f2 as you will find everthunh between mom n dad in it. The f3 can lean haze side or tk side depending on what pack you get, you looking for gas or hazey lime garbage funk?

Def look into those skunk qabbage crosses as well, his skunk cabbage is real nice. Heavy narcotic high, good yield, skunky tones and gets you lit!

I have no idea why I have problems with AKBB's stuff throwing nanners. I went through 3 different TKNL5Haze that all threw them, during the initial run, and when I ran the clones from them. This grow I had a really nice looking Golden Showers going, and thought everything was good. Had a 12" donkey dick main cola with no nanners, but when I chopped it the other day the lower branches showed signs of opened male flowers and they were all seeded up. Very strange. I had Lucky Dog Guerilla Fume', 707 OG, Katsu Black Lime Bubba, Rare Dankness Dank Commander, Crickets and Cicadas Black Muddy River and Cannarado Birthday Pie all flowering at the same time. The only other one that showed hermie was the Dank Commander popped a few single male flowers right underneath where the branches meet the main stem about 2 weeks in to flowering. I plucked those off and it finished fine. Luckily the Golden Showers didn't seem to have seeded the others. But its lower branches are just loaded with immature seeds. I have a AKBB Black Velvet that's 45 days in to 12/12 now and it looks great so far. Stickiest fan leaves I've seen for awhile and the buds remind me of Bubba Kush buds when I had it.

As far as my conditions, I have a night vision scope I go in and check for light leaks and there are none. I'm pumping lots of fresh air in, and keep the RH around 50%. Temps always in the 70 - 80 range. Running two 315 CMH lights and growing in 2 gallon hempy buckets with perlite and coco. Nutes are GH Maxibloom and add Cal Mag+.

Now that I have some seed free buds to keep me for quite awhile, I'm going to give some the AKBB stuff another try. From all the good grows I'm seeing here, I know there must be some simple thing going on that's triggering the hermie issues. He has some other stuff I want to try so I'm going to send him an order and he said he'd take care of the TKNL5Haze issue.

Wish AKBB had time to chime in here, but that skunk qabbage is quazy train x d-line (d-line = chocolope). Its hella stanky rank and narcotic
Is AKBB aware that he has a pretty active thread going on here? I'd understand if he doesn't have the time to participate, but I hope he's aware anyway. He'd get some feedback out of it at the least. He must know at this point, I suppose.

He responds pretty quicklike and answers all my questions regarding his seeds on instagram [email protected]

Hes super generous and has all the old cannabis seed catalogs available as well, which is legendary reading material!!

Ask for his seed stock list its impressive!
