Got the back ups ready.
Took nine days just sitting in a south facing window, no artificial light at all.

Two products I’m using this year.

I use Sure Start every year, it helps bring old spent soil back to life, it’s the only granular I’ll use this year and I only use it at planting time.....I use this on house plants, trees and veggie garden too.

I’m experimenting with coco this year, I’ve bought things in the past that have had coco in them but I’ve never mixed it in before.

Sure, but I mean you used to grow out a lot of SSH and others in the day, so I was just curious how you thought the oldies compared. My own (limited) experience is some of the new strains seem to be tastier, but they're all still a bit familiar at the same time. Which I guess isn't a surprise. Everyone seems to have jumped on the OG Kush wagon these days. Skywalker has been around a long time and Blue Dream is just SSH x BB. Cali-O is ancient.

Just thought I'd ask. :bonghitter:

SSH and Blue Dream were never grown for head stash, they’re just easy growing producers that look nice.

I’ll consider myself lucky if I really like two of the nine strains I’m growing.

Runtz had russet mites so I tossed it before it made my garden, maybe next year.

New strains are mostly wonderful, but they are really just clever reshufflings of the gene pools of the old stuff. There are no new, novel genetic inputs and haven't been for decades.
