    So after reading up on all the hype about bodhi strains i decided to Give a couple of strains a go myself sunshine daydream And blueberry hashplant, I germinated 5 bbhp and 7ssdd I had 3 blueberry hashplant females and 2 females from the sunshine daydream which is pretty piss poor if you ask me but that's not anyone's fault, I harvested the blueberry hashplant had 2 phenos kept my favourite but the sunshine daydream i had 2 different phenos harvested 1 last week to find it covered in seeds I've had around 50 so far and I only smoked a quarter or so, I thought ok maybe it's a 1 off I'll try the other pheno and it's on week 4 and I inspected the buds this time and Just found a load more seed pods on it.so out of £80 worth of seed's I ended up with 2 females both Hermies and I will say this which I know won't be popular, dinafem and Humboldt do better strains at the fraction of the price,sunny d smell's ok but it didn't wow me what so ever and the other people who smoked it with me said the same it's Just ok. I have a feeling that because sunny d got popular and bodhi run out i think some rush job was done to get seed's back in stock Cause my sunny d looks More like the green crack i grew with Humboldts tamping folk's, I've Gone over to UGORG now screw bodhi strains

    I grown out 13 seeds of Sunshine Daydream! No hermie!
    Grown out half pack of purple sunshine, and got alot of hermies. Realizing that even the slightes overfeeding will stress them. I just tooked 3 cut of one of these hermies, and flowering them atm a 2nd time, can tell you for sure in 2weeks, if it was a problem due to my feeding. No problems with the half pack of Chem D x SSDD, rest of the pack is flowering now too.

    But to be honest, I have NEVER smoked anything that was fitting my needs better, than the sunshine daydream cuts (the appalachia leaning is my most favourite), my most potent and frostiest strain (my wife called em snow balls!). The shorter phenos (more bubbakush leaning) had not such a nice taste, but the greatest pain reduction!

    And when bodhi isn‘t doing anything, than it is betraying people (my opinion)! Seeds never got replaced / reworked, he stored the once he maked in the freezer. He has so much to work on, soo many new strains, absolutly no need to fake a strain... where are the goji fakes than?! It‘s more popular and less avaible! The Appalachia male he used in soo many crosses, if there was a hermie problem, I think we would have realize earlier!

    First I have heard of SSD hemi. How is your growing environment?

    Maybe things are not being given the attention they need. Pretty hard to get all the way to harvest without realising that your plants are completely pollinated and seed ridden.

    I hate blaming the grower automatically but 1000% this.

    How does one get to harvest and not know their shit has been pollinated?

    I have nothing but good experience from my Sunshine Daydream cross.

    I'm just finishing up a whole pack of SSDD. Out of 7 females, six were duds in the smell department except one which is clearly the "blueberry muffin" pheno and smells great. I'm running that one again now. The others had a weak burned rubber nose with a bit of lemon but primarily this nutty smell that was just like Mothers Milk (also a dud in the smell department.) I also found a couple blown nuts at the bottom of my Mothers Milk while trimming which was a first for me.

    So far I'm liking Snow Lotus better than Appalacia, Goji OG and Natural Mystic have had some amazing smells. I'm stillig holding out high hopes for Prayer Tower Sativa, Dream Beaver, Strawberry Mountain, Silver Mountain, and ASS. Next up for me is a wookie cross, Granola Funk. I was thinking BBHP was going to be my first 88G13HP cross but now I'm not so sure.

    Before you chalk it up to grower skill, consider the possibility of taste. Most people just love to eat olives but I think they are nasty and the very strong flavor overwhelms everything else.

    I do take issue with the price complaints. All of the Bodhi available from seed banks is $50 or $35 for an 11/12 pack because Bodhi has either 3-2 or 2-1 deals at all times. I don't think Dinafem is that cheap.

    From what I understand, HSO is European bulk seed, the Cannabis equivalent of truck booze, and has nothing to do with Humboldt or California. Therefore, not in the same league as Bodhi who chucks some of California's finest.

    I've run Ancient OG several times, dropped 5 at a time, all popped, 3 fem 2 men on my last run. Some of the best strains I've grown. not a single hermie. beautiful looking plants too. Though I've never run SSDD, so I can't speak to that, but my experience with Bodhi seeds has been great.

    @Amos Otis said Ancient OG was a dud.

    Bummer. It sucks when you get duds. I've had a couple of them in the past, Barney's Farm are duds for me, I refuse to buy any of those seeds. But others have luck with them.

    Yea, Ancient was good for me on first try, I bought several more packs and have been lucky each time. I'm on my last pack.. if I pull a good male, I might chuck some pollen.

    I haven’t had a problem with Bodhi regarding hermaphrodits have had a lot of males but no hermies and I’ve run ssdd three separate times.

    I do remember from one of the thousands of pages on Bodhi gear that a gentleman had his system really dialed in and had problems with Bodhi And hermies. He realized that the Bodhi gear took off in his setup and they became root bound far earlier then anything he had in his garden before. His recommendation for anyone having similar problems was to go up on their pot size said if you normally finish in a 3 or 5 gallon you’d need to up that to 5 or 7 gallon pot. Hope it helps.

    first hermie reports on sunshine daydream I've came across. seems with the range of phenos you can either find one you prefer over almost anything else or you find phenos that tend to bore you. I've been smoking quite a bit of sunshine daydream oil as of lately and personally it's one of my favorites as far as the effects go. I also used to have strains hermie on me all the time, strains I saw other growers on the forums having wild success with. It was my room.

    Yeah, I've run bodhi strains including ssdd and haven't had so much as a nanner.

    Maybe you missed a male?

    Note that percentages of m/f have little to do with the breeder or strain. It's mostly just dumb luck. I've heard of cases where people get all males or all females in a pack of 12. It just means the odds lined up for that pack.

    I don't think I said dud, but I was disappointed. Eleven weeks of bloom for a lot of buds of adequate, but nothing special. I'd held those beans for a long time.

    BigLittlejohn Well-Known Member

    And it could have been luck of the pheno draw too unless you ran a few.

    Sure O&R is right about individual tastes but the point remains that a grower who is an active participant in their garden wouldn't have buds full of beans and not know it was going to be that way weeks before harvest. That should never be a surprise.

    Bodhi is one of the few breeders worth supporting. There is a reason he had the longest wait times at the Emerald Cup. Dinafem? FOH.

    I thought the same at first but I've have heard from several people that HSO has some good stuff. They did some collabs with Kief Sweat and Geist that sounded interesting and I actually bought a couple off green point seeds for a super low price.. I dont think they are in the same league as the crap euro bulk seed companies like word of seeds, etc.

    I havent found a keeper in anything I tried with the snow lotus male, but I keep being hopeful. Goji, Joystick, Snow Wookie, Jabba's stash, Lotus Larry...all made nice pretty buds, but lacked in the nose and none had that OG gas profile I was hoping for. Goji had some good phenos that did good outdoor but not enough to settle on as a keeper.
    SSDD also did not impress me very much, literally no smell on the ones I ran. The Snow Wookie had the best terps and flavor so I plan on trying a few crosses with the wookie male.

    HSO has their seeds made by bulk suppliers in Spain, even if you buy them in the states.

    sorry to hear the bad news, I've never grown bodhi's strains so I cannot comment on that, but Ugorg definitely has that funky/skunkyness in their genetics. The breeder is very active on uk420 I recently got my hands on 20 seeds of their Premier sweet and Ugorg #1, the killerskunk I grew about 3 years ago and had to give it away because my house was noticeable skunk from the outside. I've got a better set if carbon filters so I'm crossing my fingers I can keep these around longer. The blues phenotype I kept for a few years smells like blueberry muffins and another smelled like somebody tried to use blueberry air freshener in the company of a dead skunk LoL, had to give her away too.

    Sorry - can't take hermie reports seriously anymore. First it was some people claiming DVG, and then Bodhi? Heck, I even give the SeedJunky hermie fiasco little attention since there are so many growers showing fire phenotypes all over the place. You can get the best genetics in the world, but in the end it is all down to the grower and the environment cultivated for the plants - the breeder should have nothing to do with that.
