    Smile Skunk Berry from PeakSeedsBC

    JohnnyMan's taking the plunge and has started another seed grow.

    You may recall last year that I had a few seed grows started and all turned into growing disasters.

    Every seed that I paid for and planted did not reach harvest day.

    Then a grow mentor found me and set me on the correct path. He has guided me through 1 successful clone grow and harvest (1.3lbs from 10 plants), and I'm in the last 5 weeks of flowering in my current second crop of 17 plants. And they look awesome.

    I intend on adding a Clone Mother room to my setup. I need some mothers and that is why I started the seed grow.

    I have many strains that I want to add to my new room but I'm starting with the Skunk Berry. You also may recall that MJ of PeakSeedsBC very generously gifted me more seeds after my growing disasters. I have been slow to return the favor with a grow report as I've been growing clones. I wanted to make sure that this time I don't screw it up and can document a very successful seed grow.

    Maybe a round of LA Confidential feminized next as they were the 1st beans I bought and attempted to grow. But the non-male seeds turned into hermaphrodites. DNA replaced the beans but I haven't tried growing them yet.

    6 Skunk Berry beans were placed between wet paper towels last night. They were then placed between two ceramic plates that act as a cover. I then wrapped the entire lot in cloth towels to hide the light and this was placed in a cupboard above the kitchen fridge. Pictures coming soon once I see some sprout action.
    I wish it was bong time

    I'm up to 15 strains, and lovin' it:

    1. Black Diamond OG Kush
    2. Cannatonic
    3. Purple Kush
    4
    . Hippie Headband (2 phenotypes but not sure what to label them)
    5. Skunk Berry (both Skunk and Blueberry phenotypes)
    6. LA Confidential
    7. OG Kush
    8. Rockstar
    9. OG Ghost Train x Haze #1
    10. Sunshine Daydream
    11. Temple
    12. Pure Kush X Uzbek Hash
    13. C99
    14. Purps
    15. Rockstar Kush

    seedlings test the grower,just remember the reason seedlings are so much more solid then clones is the radicle root that a seedling forms,the tap root so to speak,this only occurs in seed plants and many of us believe it is what gives that vigor in the vegetative stage of an annuals plant cycle,anyway good luck brother,you picked a great strain company to start with.peace

    Hello 420grower!!

    Great to hear from you my friend.
    It has been a while.

    Thanks for the post. I know you've never been that fond of clone grows but it has helped me immensely. For many reasons:

    1. I have smoke. The only seed grow that I am able to brag is my first. If it weren't for clones, I would have been buying from dealers. Now I never have to leave the house. I have enough and will have enough to last me quite some time.

    I have a year under my belt now and I have a lot more confidence. I still need and gladly receive guidance. There is so much to learn with growing this plant.

    2. I know they are all females. One less thing to worry about -especially when you watch you're plant count get cut in half after you cull the males. I'm actually pretty excited about having a clone mother room and that the mothers are from seed. This would help me accomplish my dream of a cabinet full of many different well-cured strains. Sadly the cabinet has needed the odd raiding and I will need to replenish again it this harvest. But I still will only have one strain: Black Diamond OG Kush. These Skunk Berry will help me expand my collection. I also have LA Confidential and 3 other PeakSeedsBC strains that will hopefully become mothers.

    3. Consistent crop growth (for the most part) If they are all the same then any differences are from where they were in the room, and if they received the same amount of food and water. This is good information to know when you are a rookie grower as I was. Seeds can very wildy. Even if you are growing the same strain, you now have to deal with the different phenos. That being said, in my current clone grow I have plants that vary in size from 36 inches down to about 28 inches. The 36 inch girl towers out amongst the rest.

    Out of the above three, number 2 is my favourite. I've been down the male and hermaphrodite road before, and I didn't like it.

    JohnnyMan is not done with seed grows or clone grows but will be embracing both.

    Thanks again for the post.

    I'm looking forward to it. I had to decide what strain to start with for my seed grow. I remember you raised some and now I want to enjoy that experience.

    Thumbs up Hour 36

    36 Hours Since Seeds Touched Water

    I looked in on my newest crop of potential clone mothers this morning. Out of the 6 beans that went under, 5 have popped and one is trying to catch up. Below are 3 of the 6 taken with my macro lens. As you can see they all have about the same development. One of the 6 has yet to show a tap root.

    JohnnyMan has a seed grow going again. Yahoo!!!

    I will soon need to prepare some small cups for these girls.

    I have not named these girls yet but I have been running with the names SB1 through to SB6.

    Thanks Crazy_Eagle,

    If memory serves me correctly, I currently have a collection of PeakSeedBC beans:

    Skunk Berry
    Sweet Skunk
    C99
    Kush Berry
    and a mixed pack to grow.

    I have never tasted anything from Peak yet and I look forward to it. I need to get some more strains under my belt.

    Yeah, I hate when that happens.

    You have to keep misting the roots as they climb ever higher, and it's a real bitch to get the dirt bright enough for the leaves to grow

    Lightbulb Want them all

    They'll all eventually be going into the ground.

    I was a little torn on what strain to plant first.

    The first strain I bought was LA Confidential. But since I have picked up some PeakSeeds, I have been wanting to sample these. And we all know I owe MJ a grow report or two.

    The Cindys were HIGH at the top of my list, and they soon will be exploring life between two wet paper towels. Shad, I do recall your fondness for the C99 and I look forward to being able to concur.

    I think I like Apollo a bit more, but it's a sister of Princess crossed with Cindy so unfamiliar smokers probably couldn't be sure of a difference.

    Think of it like two brands of ginger ale.

    If you don't drink it regularly then it's all the same stuff except sometimes it's better than other times.

    If on the other hand ginger ale is your main source of hydration then you've got your favourite brand and the other ones aren't as good, meanwhile everyone else in the room can't see how you can even tell the difference.

    Currently my issue with above scenario is it seems everyone has had access to the various brands, and knew what they were drinking. My frustration was I haven't and don't.

    There is no doubt I have enjoyed probably hundreds of different strains in my past and you're absolutely correct, I chocked their differences up to me at the moment, and how much I thought I consumed. Or maybe I just replied with, "shit man, this is some good shit."

    Now I know there are many brands out there and I can have access to them, but that is going to take some damn time.

    This is me griping, and I no longer feel like it as I have just hit the bong again.

    I think I'll role one today, and consider if I feel compelled to write a non-spoof smoke report on the experience.

    Thumbs up 6 Beans Germinated! 100% Success. They're in soil

    I decided to check on them after 72 hours.

    All 6 had germinated and have nice tap roots. These were PeakSeedsBC beans so what did we expect?

    I potted them.

    They each have their own pot filled with ProMix. I went with ProMix this grow instead of Sunshine #4 for one single reason: My wife scored a job at a local garden centre, she can get discounts, and they sell ProMix there.

    I also first poured in some straight tap water into each pot to moisten the grow medium but it occurred to me after that I should have added some seaweed extract. I mixed up a batch (0.5 teaspoons per 1 litre), and added a little to them after they were potted. I intend on using it as a foliage feed.

    The sequence of pictures attempted are:

    Their new home
    In their birthing area
    Area Exposed
    Hello seedlings
    Who's under the covers?
    They're all under soil and moistened.

    Tonight will be their first night in soil.

    I have always had a high female to male ratio with peak beans. realy high hope the same for you brother. If never stressed and wait until two good sets of leaves before feeding helps with making them female and a temp of 78 to 80. Ikeep them under t5 ban of 8 lights 24 hours a day some say 16 to 18 but i have great sucsess with seeds at this temp and 24 hour lighting. In soiless mix of course

    Thanks for the tips, mrniceguy. These are good rules of thumb.

    I must confess, I have been growing clones these past few months. I'm hoping I'm be able to recognize a male.

    Is the best test for sex is to take a clone and flip it to 12 hours, and wait and see if it is male? Or are the pre-flowering flowers good enough as a guide? I'm hoping I'll be able to tell before I flip.

    Thumbs up Day 5 of Life and 2 Have Seedlings Have Emerged

    Day 5 of Life

    Last night my new crop of 6 Skunk Berry beans went into the soil for their first time. Each in their own pot. They were placed under the 2 T5 lights that I own and the lights were maybe 3 inches above the pots. The lights are on, and not on a timer. mrniceguy suggests that this may help with keeping these female (24-hour light).

    I have never been a 24-hour light enthusiast mostly because there are few places on earth that give a plant 24 hours of light. I tend to prefer the 18-hour period but at the seedling stage, I'm willing to do anything that will help ensure they come out female.

    Within hours I saw a seed pushing itself out of the soil. This seedling had the longest of the tap roots when she went into the ProMix. I felt half-compelled last night to pull up a chair with a beer, and watch these bitches grow.

    This morning when I checked on them. 3 of the 6 were clearly out of the soil and displaying their coteyal leaves. The other 3 are showing no signs of growth. [Not that I was expecting any this early after potting.]

    These 3 plants have started out life with a lot of vigor. I hope that this is not an indicator that they are males, and I hope this is an indicator of how well they'll grow.

    Now I have another 100 or so days to sweat out before harvest.

    In the below image:

    Pot in centre has the seedling with the long tap root. Pot in lower right had a nice root too. The pot immediately to left has a seed just breaking through the surface. It is difficult to detect.

    Cool Plants Taking Over Grow Room!!

    OK, maybe that was an exaggeration.

    It's an hour later and I see 2 more sprouts pushing through the grow medium. Currently 5 out of 6 beans have pushed themselves up, and broke through the soil's surface.

    As I said earlier, these girls are growing so fast I should pull up a chair and watch.

    I neglected to mention that these pots are sitting on top of a heating pad turned to its lowest setting. I have the 6 sitting in a plastic 3-gallon pot saucer. This separates the heating pad from the pots.
