Fester & Mrs. Newt's BLACK GUM Test Grow

Discussion in 'Indoor Grow Journals' started by FesterNewt, Mar 4, 2016.

  1. Here we go! Mrs. Newt and I were among a group of blades that were chosen by OSSC to do a test grow of their BLACK GUM strain, :thankyou:OSSC!

    Black Gum is a cross of Black Domina x Bubblegum....sounds delicious! :love-mj2:

    Lighting: LED - old model Mars-Hydro 200x3w, 600w mixed with some CFL while in veg
    Medium: One in Coco and one in Ferti-Lome soil, both are mixed 50/50 with perlite in 4.5 gallon containers
    Nutrients: Blue Planet 3 part
    Tent: it's a pretty small Apollo 36"x20"x5'
    Germination: dropped directly into slightly moist soil and kept moist daily

    We dropped 2 beans on Feb 23rd and immediately had a cold spell :mad2:, but they finally popped up on the 28th.


    I can't seem to be able to upload pics at the moment, but pics will come soon :passing-joint:

  2. Subbed up, I'm interested to see how BPN nutes compare to GH on this strain.

  8. Update: 22 days old

    They are looking pretty healthy and are taking full strength nutes, the soil seems to be doing a bit better but is also the Indica leaning pheno.

    I decided to let them grow naturally with no training on this grow to see their structure.

  12. I've been super busy with a job change and I haven't updated in a while, here are the ladies at 2 weeks in flower.

    The coco plant has outgrown the soil plant. The coco also has better lower branching and will deffinately have a better yield if it keeps up this pace.

  13. Haven't updated in a while, but here we are at 4 weeks of flower, they didn't stretch too much and I've never seen such dense pistols...and the smell is super sweet if you touch a bud. So many pistols that you can't really see any green growth inside.

    Just hit them with their first flowering nutes yesterday

  16. I pulled my 2 Black Gum out today to take some good pics and found some little nanners on both of them. They were just a few days shy of 8 weeks in flower and had all cloudy trics with just a few amber, soooo....chop chop!

    Here are the two main colas, drying box is full so Mrs. Newt is happy. I will be doing another one on the next run and will be doing a bit of everything to make a bushy bush out of it. My estimated yield on these two plants is 4oz total and will post results after dry.

  17. I got both Black Gums dried, de-stemmed and jarred up for the cure. We ended up with 4oz + 5 grams, I figure we'll lose the 5 grams during the cure...happy with that for sure.

    I already have another BG in the ground for the next run, thanks again OSSC for the opportunity to test these babies!

    I went ahead and bought the full line of Blue Planet Elite 3 part nutrients. It set me back a few bucks but I can't wait to see what the rest of the line will do. I still have a few RQS Special Kush and a Positronics SuperCheese in flower that will get blasted with the new stuff when I get it.

    And I wish I had thought to take pics of the jars before we started smoking the shit out of it, lol , plus gave some to a bud but here is what's left

  19. I suck at smoke reports but here goes; keep in mind that this is not cured.....when you open a jar you can smell a nice skunk drift from across the room.

    When you stick your nose in the jar it smells like a carbonated citrus alcoholic drink? Not sure at this point...the high is nice but still a bit harsh because of not being cured yet.

    It's bound to improve greatly after cure if it doesn't get smoked by then, lol.

    At this point the smoke at first tastes a bit like froot-loops and then turns to a piney taste and then at exhale you get a very nice skunk taste!

    I would definitely recommend growing Black Gum, I had no problems with it at all.
