CSI humboldt thread

hey all-

new to the forum-been pouring through this thread. Can someone help me make a choice on some CSI gear? I’ve grown 5 seasons outdoors in organics and just completed my indoor set up. Looking for a CSI cross that’s not to finicky for my first indoor. Plan to run organics in my soil blend under ES300 LED

Here is what caught my eye. I’d love to hear opinions on any of these or other suggestions for easy plants to run to get me going.
Thanks so much! Love this place!

BBW 2.0
Crude Fuel
GSCx TK
Mendo Purp Urkel 3.5

hard to go wrong there if youre looking for high grade fuely plants.... going from outdoor to indoor you're going to want to clean up lower bud sites (lollipop) and keep an eye out for staminate flowers (nanners). Take clones and get rid of the ones that have excessive intersex. Staminate (nanners) late in flower are acceptable to some since its usually too late to pollinate or otherwise they dont produce viable pollen. This is especially true if the bud quality is amazing and youre planning on smoking it with friends and family, rather than entering into photo contests. a couple of the parents of those strains are known to have intersex offspring, just my speculation but i would think the mendo purp urkel 3.5 would be less prone to intersex since its a more "worked" selection at least slightly. if you found just one winner from each of those varieties you'd probably be pretty stoked for a while. Just sayin, chem 91 is essentialy a bagseed probably from intersex pollination, gsc is known for it as well. should be good to go if ya do that! happy hunting

Am I off in thinking the 91 prefers synthetic nutes over organic considering the time period it was selected in?

out of all the CSI gear, what would be the best bet for a first indoor grow, hard to fuck up f1 grown in organic soil/coco? Ideal high for me is calm, focused euphoria without raciness. Favorite terp profile is fruit inhale and fuel exhale.

I appreciate your help guys!

You're not wrong, lol. I've used rez's 6/9 GH micro/flora in the past and it kept the diesels and chems green late.

They will adjust to organics but it takes time. One of the many reasons new varieties stay in veg for 6-8 months before I flower them. Lots of calcium availability is key to keeping the chem family from eating itself at the end. Without getting too indepth or specific; top dress compost mixed with some gypsum and a small amount of kelp every few weeks and you'll do OK.

There's a lot of options for what you like. Easy recommendations are cookies and gelato crossed with anything. Cereal milk fits the bill perfectly. Wedding cake crossed to fruity stuff would be good if you harvest before the amber comes on.

That being said I'd get some genetic diversity in your rotation. I like some cookie crosses, a lot, but weed gets super generic feeling if that's all you've got. Look for stuff that's pre-cookies, foundational genetics, and keep them that way.

I'd just run one chem 91 cross if you have no experience with it. 91 progeny are more fussy than any parent on your list. The chem 91 and gsc like lower light intensity so they might be good companions environmentally.
This has been said at least a few times and I think you’re one of the guys who’s mentioned it… but the D and the 4 breed so much better than the 91.

From a growers perspective the D and 4 breed better, for sure. There's less genetic variability in 91 crosses but more deleterious traits that will make it harder to fully express at the end of the day.

Not suggesting that 91 crosses aren't elite or desirable as I'm growing 3 crosses with 91 present, 2 from CSI.

Grew 6 or 9 snausages from seed. I selected a couple of heavily 91 leaning ladies, one with thinner stems that I'm predicting will be the winner.

Popped a pack of nuclear winter, missed watering a tray for a week or longer and lost a few plants... more pissed I killed 6 motor breath x sour dubb in the same tray. Still have a 91 and a snow leaner.

Also growing Arcata trainwreck x chem 91 from cannaventure, too early to speak on them.

Not trying to scare folks, just keeping it real.

still running my snausages. Fickle viney plant with not much vigor but it puts out dank og funk.
I've got the crinkle cut of legend og which is basically what I'm selecting for out of the og x chem91 crosses I've got. Was looking for the stronger stems and better root systems from the 91. I popped those wanting a 91 leaner, structurally, with a decent amount of OG flavor. Wanting to find something better than the crinkle cut... faster rooting time, slightly more open structure, more dense flowers, more burnt rubber, more pine.

I selected against the viney, floppy plants. I'm sure the smoke will be incredible from your og leaners, though.

I say thinner stemmed, in comparison to the other I selected... way thicker than the og leaners. I'm thinking the thinner stemmed one will have the better flavor for sure.

Anyone else here grow in foggy environments? I've got a MPU 3.5 that has fallen to botrytis and I am brainstorming on how to continue growing CSI strains while knowing my environment is perfect for botrytis.

The structure of my GSC crosses are looking good for this year, but I'm curious if anyone here has found "the one" CSI strain for them that doesn't get budrot despite growing in a humid environment. It's sad for me because I'm a big indica fan, but I think I have to lean towards sativa next season and would love to hear your personal experiences.

id write to Nspecta. Nobody has more experience with CSI gear than the man himself

I'm definitely interested in the outcome of such an inquiry. I live on the southern Oregon coast next to the redwoods..

Did you know that the redwood trees get 240 feet fall and 10-11 feet in diameter and get the majority of their moisture from the ambient fog...?

Yeah........

Around 10 minutes in Nspecta talks about his Bubblegum being really strong against mold.
I get late season showers in my outdoor season that almost always gives me some budrod in a few colas, makes me want to try popping the bubblegum packs I have and put the mold resistance to the test.

I got Lemon Tree x Bubblegum
and Obama Kush x Bubblegum to try out.
i knew hed discussed it before lol just forgot where

I grew a small cut of sweet pink stink (purple urkle x bubblegum) outdoors last year. I harvested around October 10th with very little mold. I'm in mass where it gets very rainy on the fall.IMG_20201001_134452.jpg
