Take 1 In early March, I planted 6 clones of various strains, all from a cannabis club, outside in 18 gallon 'RopeTotes'. This turned out to be a mistake as they started flowering almost immediately due to the light cycle outside, them showing sex when I bought them, and me not having them under any lights prior to putting them outside. This Blue Dream clone is the one in the middle of the 3 on the far row in that pic above, you can see its 2 main branches like in this pic here. It only yielded about 5 grams of dry trimmed bud. Macro of a nug of that Blue Dream Lavender Lavender macro All trimmed up...I don't think I weighed this, but it couldn't have been any more than 1/4oz or so at most. Blue Madness (Blueberry x Mendo Madness) Coulda gone a little longer I ended up harvesting all 6 for a total of maybe 1 1/2 oz at most once it was all dried...nothing too special. Take 2 Early April I sprouted a buncha bagseed, about 15 seeds or so, not planning on keeping them all although I shoulda. This was April 12 This plant I named Barbara Walters. Clear bag is no good, I know, but I wasn't thinkin, but I realized and I never let em get too rooted in those bags before I transplanted em. This is May 1. Out of all these, I took 3 I wanted to keep. I've read here on GC that female plants tend to grow a little slower, so I killed off all the bigger stretched out ones and kept the 3 nicest ones. The plants from seed never got anything other than hose water for the first few months, probably up until late July. I neglected em. I stopped taking pics of the seedlings for a while, but I got back to it a while later. Here we are at July 17. I planted 2 of the 3 into the RopeTotes from the first early midget grow. We'll call this one Rosie O'Donnel. She was always a little more stout than the rest. Here's Barbara Walters, doin okay, hungry, movin slow. The 3rd, unnamed seed plant. A few days later some new girls came to hang out... 5 new clones from the club. It was a little late to be starting but I didn't have high expectations for the seeds and wanted somethin happenin. Outta these a 2 were mine and I let a friend grow 2 here too, and we had one we were splitting. You can see the 3 seed plants on the right. Rosie really took off in the last few days. The G13 in the red cup was waiting for a little more soil for that black pot next to it before she could go in. The strains of the 5 clones: 2 GrandDaddyPurple, one Purple Haze, one Blue Dream, one G13. They didn't have much time to veg, they flowered pretty quick, some sooner than others. Fast forward to now. August 30 (yesterday) All 8 Rosie O'Donnel got quite big, and she turned out to be female. She's probably about 5'7" or so. Barbara Walters turned out to be a nice sexy sativa female, 5'-somethin. The 3rd unnamed seed plant. Also turned out female. Purple Haze- Best clone out of all 5, shes probably almost 5 ft tall, which is better than most of the other clones that flowered pretty quick and didn't get much chance to get bigger. G13 covered in nice nickel sized snow white buds Blue Dream (first to flower) Smells incredible Better 1 of the 2 GDP clones, lots of great smelling frosty buds GDP clone #2 This was all using Fox Farm Grow Big and Big Bloom on the first 'take' and Grow Big and Tiger Bloom on the second take, both grows in 'SuperSoil' I'm pretty proud, too. My jedi female choosing skills worked this time as the 3 seedlings I kept turned out female.
