space monkey - day 23... this plant does not stretch much
Soaked 11 Space Monkey and 10 popped. Sexed em 2 days ago, got 7 boys and 3 girls. I kept the girls in veg where they’ll sit til I can flower them in May.
I killed the 3 boys that had little aroma but put the musky 4 in 12/12-
Once they mature and differentiate I’ll choose 1 or 2 boys to hookup with my keeper grrls- SSDD, BBHP and a Farmhouse Cupcake. I’ll also F2 the Space Monkey. Too much fun!
I"m about to be doing this for the first time with my 3 strains, looking to keep one male total. So you just cut your clones, root them real quick, and then flip them to flower? And while those are showing sex, you just keep vegging everything else, and then when you find out whats what, go back and cull?
Where is a good spot to get flowering info on strains?
I try to avoid strains that want to run 9week plus, I like 8weekers. And big yields
I like to avoid everything else.
Do you guys use a site that provides this info? I want to run some bodhi but it seems like a guessing game.
Thanks for any help.
i use google, search using name and add bodhi. you can also search for grow reports, of which there are usually a lot depending on popularity.
I've not cut clones yet but will soon. To sex em I just looked real closely with a macro lens into their 5th-ish node crotches and find either staminate or pistilate primordia, aka early sex organs aka preflowers. Here's what I saw on 4 of my Space Monkeys, I reckon these show gender pretty clearly:
Thanks! I will try crayolla washable markers since they are cheaper. If those don't work its to the Posca next. Theres so much data I can now write on each 3G pot, I have no problems taking a wet soapy cloth to the container for a few minutes at harvest
I usually add info like date it was potted up maybe, expected harvest date (gives me a roigh idea of expected dates for different stronss) if it's been pollinated etc.
And no more sticky pots! Haaha.
Gotcha. What are you using to take those photos?! Super good. Thanks. About when do you look to see? I'm trying to sex them as early as I can.
Hey GreenTools can I ask what the purple leafed plants on the bottom left are called?
I use a canon digital SLR with macro tubes for pix but any magnifier works to determine sex. I don’t know when they show sex honestly, prolly when they’re showing their 7th or so set of true leaves although I’m sure it’s strain-dependent too. I hadn’t looked til yesterday and was surprised to see all of them were sporting gender specific bits on first look, although just barely...
You can you those silver or gold sharpies. The ink stays put until you remove it. A quick wipe with some alcohol wipes sharpie ink off clean. I've been meaning to pick up a couple because I'm tired to using tape too.
OHkay cool thank you. My first grow was two Bay 11 seeds, both fems, and one hermed real quick after, started showing both parts. I guess after that I got scared to sex that way and started going by clone and vegging for a while. i think I'm going to reinvest in a new magnifier, maybe a digi one that can take photos.
Does anyone know if there will be a drop for Gogi OG anytime soon? Thanks in advance
They are gone forever bro. Might b able to find someone around here with an extra pack though
That’s how I do it. I’ve got it down that when I flip I drop the next run of seeds.
Black triangle or neroli 91? Pick one. Getting Kailash also, just need a second pack for the freebie.
cool cool. Do you mean when you flip the clones, or the plants themselves? Or do you flip them both at the same time?
Oh, and your 4 photos. I'm seeing in order you posted, Girl, Boy, Girl, Girl? Just what it looks like to me but i could be totally wrong.
