Shiny Side Up / Dirt Side Down

Howdy everyone. Rev here, rambling away, baked on some really nice Granddaddy Purple honey oil. Yay me! LoL. Alright, let me share some of the stuff going on…

First of all, fear not that the Deep Chunk seeds are of a lighter color, they just are that way normally. Even the original P1 Deep Chunk that were from Tom Hill (via Moonshine Man) himself all were of lighter colors. I germ tested 10 very light seeds and got 8 sprouts, and I have kept three of them you can see in the photo of the youngster cutie-pies.

Also, you can see I am flowering a couple wild and crazy Willie Nelson sativas, and I’m trying to do this in 2-gallon pots, all TLO style just adding water; but I might have to use a single tea, we’ll see. It’s a tall order and in the photo those plants are tied down something fierce, or they would be almost 4 feet tall. Also, these are seed plants not clones, which are tougher always in containers. I might end up having to transplant them into 3-gallon containers, but I think I can pull this off. Crossing fingers.

You can see in the photo the 10 Darkling Sativa sprouts (so cute) and at the time of this writing I have culled them down to 6 plants. I have had this variety before when I called them “Cindy Black” and they are right up my ally so to speak. So, I am looking forward to working them and getting some top notch wicked potent and cat-pissy sativa in my stash!

Keep your shiny side up and your dirty side down amigos, I’ll catch ya all on the flip-flop next month for another Rev’s Ramble. Cheers!

Public Alert Broadcast!

coma-cluster-apical-budGreetings Earthlings, it’s time for another Rev’s Ramble about stuff and things happening in KOS world. I’m coming to you today from one of my favorite pubs in Coos Bay, Oregon; The Coney Station, and I’m having myself a little screwdriver while hidden back in a corner table, heh heh. Alright let’s get down to business, starting out with the latest regarding the Coma Cluster variety available here at KOS…
Coma Cluster
I got two pretty distinct phenotypes from the 5 females I chose my final two females from, so I took one of each pheno to flower and check out. Both phenos were pretty close, one smelled and tasted a little cotton candy like while the other was just very very dank smelling and tasting. Both my females had some intense potency, seriously, what I would call top-shelf stupid-weeds. No doing any math for sure while high on this one. Really a severe ass-kicker to the max. The yields are also very good and I got almost 3 ounces of prime (large flowers) buds from each of the 2.5-coma-cluster-apical-budfoot plants, after dried. So this baybee is for sure a very worthy contender for commercial applications along with personal gardens everywhere, so definitely check her out because she will treat you well—wink.
New Stuff I’m Checking Out
I have a couple varieties I just sprouted you can see in the photos. The Lemongrass Thai x Deep Chunk, and I also popped some pure Deep Chunk seeds as well. These are both from circa 2000 or so, and I got 3 of 6 LgT x DC and 5 of 6 DC to actually sprout. I didn’t make either of these so I’m pretty happy these old seeds were as viable as they were. So I’m going to inbreed the DC for sure, and while I am at it I will also cross the LgT x DC back to the DC; I won’t be selling any pure DC beans but I will release these hybrids that are sure to rock and roll with epic power!
 octoberthumb
I’m also looking forward to recombining some of the LgT x DC with my Kali Thai in the near future as well. Pretty soon now I will be bringing up some of my olden Cherry Hemmingway(Cherry Hemmy) I made a bazillion years ago, and I will be working some of these genes into my IBL Skunk line (Red Russian Skunk) along with the Deep Chunk; for those of you that don’t know, the Deep Chunk is a very olden IBL (inbred line) Afghanistan Hashplant (from Tom Hill) and basically a true blood deadly indica bomb from hell with huge yields.
 KOS Public Alert Broadcast
Hey so if anyone can give me some good photos and a good description of a KOS variety I can use I will send you a free pack of seeds of your choice! Here is a list of the varieties I need stuff for:
• Darkling Sativa
• Black Poison F2s

The Red Thai

coma-cluster-7-days-to-go

Alrightythen… July 2016 Summertime rules! Well, I am up to lots of stuff, so buckle up, hahahaha; seriously though, I have a lot going on right now, so I’ll try my best to be as brief as possible, whew, and away we go…

First of all amigos, here’s a double secret probation link to a lot of KOS lines and I update these all the time so check back to see latest developments along with breeder’s notes etc. So bookmark this link…

KOS_Varieties

The Black Poison f2s are just a couple of days away from the Gamblers’ Table, so if you knew what I know about this recombination, you would jump on some of those ASAP! Fertile breeders’ grounds.
Dark DragonI am going to note here, especially for those outdoor growers near the coast where humidity plays a big part. The Dark Dragon has a vercontinous-flowering-tent-kos-and-tloy specialized floral morphology that is still pretty dense—not rock hard dense—and allows for some air movement that combats things like Bud Rot. So a great choice for an outdoor grower along the coast I think; they work fine indoors too. Great unique flavor range along with exotic smells—you can pick this smoke out in a crowd of smoke. She’s kind of uppity for me, an intense hit in two waves for me, at about 10 min and again at about 15 min and she is an ass kicker with long sativa-like legs (length of effect) and three hours easy for me, solid bake, no rollercoaster type ride here, more like a freight train.
Black Poison Skunk is also about to make it’s showing at The Gambler’s Table as well, and this highly exotic baybee is made using my female Red Russian Skunk; 3 individual females actually, and using a super stinky tough as nails and large yielding Black Poison male. Seriously, he smelled strongly!
Right now I am germinating some of my last original Deep Chunk seeds along with several Deep Chunk x Lemongrass Thai seeds; fingers crossed these are both really old.
I had one of my LEDs finally (after 5 or 6 years of constant use) failed and the spectrum wasn’t right so I got a new bad ass LED up in my sprouting zone now. The plants started to look like they were hurting and I moved some over to another light and those came right out of it. So keep that in your bag of diagnostic trix, because old lights can cause big problems. In any gardens I troubleshoot that is one of the first questions I ask, how old are your lights/bulbs?
 My few Tombs and couple Darkling Sativa plants all showed male on me, germinated under that old LED light, but since I have heard back from a few peeps about normal and female high sexual ratios from those two, I am pretty sure that light zapped ‘em into an unhappy place. So long story short, I will be popping dark-rhinosome more of these ASAP too.
I have a Bogglegum (f2) male stud-muffin warming up in the bullpen—super NL5 dominant—I am going to cross out to my Kali Thai and remake an even more insane Fat Tuesday. Seriously confident about what I am doing here using an f2 male Bogglegum I selected rather than the f1 Bogglegum male I used in the original cross making Fat Tuesday. Bigger, more potent, enhanced yields, resistances, and vigor.
Right behind that aiming mostly at making Mobius Dragon Sativa (Black Forrest male x Boggle Dragon); now that I have seen how this Boggle Dragon breeds I know she will recombine along the Black Forrest’s olden Vietnamese sativa lines. Should bump up resin production, yields, and while I can’t imagine where exactly the sharp pungent smells and flavors of the Black Forrest slamming into the candy sweet aspects of the Boggle Dragon will end up, but it should be memorable.
Another one in the works is I want to cross my selected Red Russian Skunk male to my Kali Thai female and make some Red Thai—drool! Also, Coma Clustertlo-tent-continuous-style is holy shit tough, easy to grow, yields large, deadly potent; check her out you’ll be happy you did.
The numbers on that one tent full photo represent the number of days each of those plants has left before harvest. If you treat a nerve related spasm pain issue like I do, seriously think about trying out the Dark Rhino. She has excellent qualities along these lines for myself and several others I know of. Cheers!

Happy 4/20

red-russian-skunk-maleApril is upon us and what a beautiful April it is here along Southern Oregon’s Coastline. If you are feeling lucky, go check out The Gamblers’ Table here at KOS if you want to roll the dice on a couple almost certain to be highly connoisseur varieties; Blue black-poisonMatter & Madness II—go check them out and see if they might be something up your ally, killer deal on them. Alright, let’s get to some other stuff shall we…
The Iron Cindy f2s are one of my favorite stashes at present. A tad too intense for a wake-n-bake if I have important things to do, but gawd awful delicious and deadly; not to mention kick ass yields. A great deal on those here at KOS and well worth it if you ask me, no bullshit!
I’m checking out the Black Poison, Coma Cluster, The Tombs, and Darkling Sativa at present. Let me tell you how spooky great the Darkling Sativa looks, yikes! Also, the Black Poison (breeding stock) is looking insane. One of the Coma Clusters I have (teenagers) is already wicked sticky—a very good sign indeed.
Breeding a few of the Red Russian Skunk females with my favorite Black Poison male and this tent is looking FAT!

The Dark Days are Now!

Dark Dragon is kicking ass and taking names, a beautiful Candy Sweet Pink Grapefruit dominates her smells and her yields are looking truly stellar. Watch for jan3this one available here at KOS by the end of January. A seriously hearty and mucho resinous variety with giant yields!
 jan1
Dark Rhino still smells like fuel and Honey Oil, my pheno is, I mean; but others have reported very super sweet candy-hashish phenos. She is a deadly resin factory for sure with what I would call average yields; again, my pheno, others have told me they have larger yielding phenos. At any rate she is a connoisseur treat to be sure and will be available here at KOS around the first half of February at the latest.
KOS –“The Tombs” and “Coma Cluster” Hybrids
Iron Cindy (m) x Boggle Dragon = Coma Cluster …And, the Iron Cindy (m) x BR1947 =The Tombs. These have just been put up at The Gamblers’ Table with a very limited and inexpensive pre-release. You can’t go wrong here amigos, seriously.

THE DARKLING SATIVA PROJECT!
Black Forrest (m) x C99 – I have made these before about a decade ago and called them “Cindy Black” and they are right around 10 weeks and rock hard core for any Hazey “Cat Piss” fans out there. Oh the potential here for you Haze (Catpiss) lovers; another one to watch for at the Gamblers’ Table fairly soon now here in January.

jan2Hope everyone had a great holidaze season and are recovering nicely, heh heh; see ya all next month for the newest Rev’s Rambles, adios for now and cheers.
cheers.- REvski

Its a Dark Christmas

Hello everybody. Here comes the last Rev’s Ramble for 2015, yikes, time is flying. Storms are rolling over me one after the other here lately along Oregon’s South Coast, wet and windy baybee. My 10-day forecast is solid rain, rain, rain, ugh. Still, nothing a little good hash won’t help make better, heh heh; okay, onwards we go…
 2015112929
Dark Dragon looks very nice, and at 3 weeks into flowering she smells strongly of pink grapefruit candy and is developing large amounts of resin already; watch for theseto be available really soon here at KOS. They look like real contenders for outdoors as well and judging by my females I would bet they can get VERY large outdoors, seriously. Plus they all express traits that rock outdoors in my experience.
Dark Rhino is very dense, and well formed for making some decent sized nuggets. Looks like she’s gonna be a big yielding hunny, and even at 2 weeks into flowering she already wreaks like hash when you disturb her buds, and she already is popping a gazillion trichome sites (puckers); so looking like a real knockout punch, and I am very curious where her aromas and flavors will go—yum!
KOS –“The Tombs” and “Coma Cluster” Hybrids
Iron Cindy (m) x Boggle Dragon = Coma Cluster…And, the Iron Cindy (m) x BR1947 =The Tombs. Watch for these to be popping up on the “Gamblers’ Table” here at KOS very soon now, a very limited early release, and if you ask me these are a no-brainer, LoL. These fine varieties are made up from so many very good solid lines that I myself have worked and am seriously familiar with, just sayin’. So, watch for your email if you have signed up for the KOS newsletter alerting you when these gems hit “The Gamblers’ Table” – woohoo!
THE DARKLING SATIVA PROJECT!
Black Forrest (m) x C99 – I have made these before about a decade ago and called them “Cindy Black” and they are right around 10 weeks and rock hard core for any Hazey “Cat Piss”fans out there. The seeded up C99s are hanging as I write this all fat full of ripe Darkling Sativa seeds; another one to watch for at the 201512061Gamblers’ Table fairly soon.
BLACK POISON
Black Forrest (m) x Black Durban – I didn’t make a ton of these, and will be using them as breeding stock in the near future. I might let a (very) few packs go at the Gamblers’ Table, so watch for that too if you are interested; these are gonna be something else I do strongly believe—wiggling eyebrows.
That’s about it for the December babbling by yours truly, and I hope all your holidays are full of real love and laughter;
cheers.- REvski

The Darklings are Coming!

Here I sit with the chill of November upon me, but while my house stays kinda chilly, my garden rooms remain tropical paradises, and especially on the chilly black-poison-projectmornings I tend to spend a lot of time in them with my morning java. Greetings Earthlings and welcome to another edition of Rev‘s Rambles, I’m The Rev (Duh), and here comes the ramblings for November 2015, so buckle up!

The Iron Cindy F2sare looking stellar and I have a fine looking female I like a lot set to go into flowering here within a few weeks, I would seriously grab a pack or tw
o of these at an awesome price right now in the Breeders’ zone of this website—wiggling eyebrows—these have some epic recombinations and no bad recombos, I have no doubts!

KOS – “The Tombs” and “Coma Cluster” Hybrids
Iron Cindy (m) x Boggle Dragon = Coma Cluster …And, the Iron Cindy (m) x BR1947 =The Tombs. I just harvested these seed heavy mothers yesterday, so i
n a few weeks look for a chance to grab some of these upin the Gamblers’ Table section of this website for some limited and awesome deals on some of these beans, yessir, these are some bad ass prodigy here ladies and gentlemen. The IC x BR1947 (The Tombs) should be like the well known old KOS CBR1947 hybrid I made about a decade ago, only on steroids; don’t miss out on these, wow!

darkling-sativa-project-3

The Coma Cluster speaks for itself, and prepare for some heavy duty “drooling on your shoes” cannabis, that also have extraordinary yields.

The Darkling Sativa Project!
Well as I write this I am preparing to remove the Black Forrest male from that breeding tent within a couple of days max; a sativa lovers’ dream come true here, especially for those of you who like that real Cat Piss side of the coin, with stunning potency, seriously! I already made these a long time ago once and I called them “Cindy Black” so I already know they are ass kicking reality altering sativas that finish in about 10 weeks, so make sure and stay on top of things to grab some of these just down the road a bit.
BLACK POISON
Another one I am crossing at the same time as the BF x C99 will be the BF x Black D
urban and I am calling that one Black Poison, keeping “poison” in the name to reflect the care I have gone to in order to keep that early finish outdoors expression in a Homo state within the Black Durban; therefore it will tend to be fully dominant in these offspring, or perhaps in 75% of them. These will be a very limited release as I plan to work these further and deeper, but look for a chance in the Gamblers’ Table section in the near future. These are getting so close now!

The Black Durban has deep dark purple (almost black) calyxes you can see in the photo, this cross is sure to be something very special and I can’t wait to get s
ome of these beans in the ground and have a look very soon now.

Cheers & Salutationsdarkling-sativa-project-2

The Iron Cindy Project

So wow, September already, dayum… But, the good news is check out the Gamblers’ Section here at KOS and check out the cool deals on untested stuff; have a little faith baybee, my stance is, confidence is high with both of the Dark varieties working out stellar; their parents rock it. I show them in the photo, the sprouts of Dark Dragon and Dark Rhino; my waves of sprouts consists of waves of six seeds planted at a time. My standard procedure is to reduce them to 4 selected individuals by and/or at 30 days old. I have another wave of these sprouts that have just sprouted and are like a week old, now as well. Germination rates are 90+% and fast.
The Iron Cindy F2s are almost here as well, and we at KOS are going to bring you some stellar pricing on these baybees, and F2s will occupy our Breeders’ Section here at KOS, because as any breeder knows, magic happens here (F2s – F3s) most often-at least, in my opinion. I have selected the parental lines very meticulously, and they will be very Metal Haze dominant for at least 2/3rds of the offspring, pretty stinkin’ sure about that. With a Cdrhino-and-ddragon-sprouts-kosat Pissy, meeting an Overripe Fig flavored (and smelling) profile, I see only great things resulting along those lines, yessir.

THOSE WHICH ARE UNNAMED!
In a tent right now I have my studly selected Iron Cindy male about to start pollinating the (“Limey”) Blue Rhino 1947 (thaaaat’s right) along with my selected Bubblegum O Licious and Tibetan leaning high-type, Boggle Dragon female; who also happens to yield massively, just sayin’. Now I haven’t named these crosses yet, I wait for inspiration, heh heh. So stay tuned for those puppies, yes?

The Darkling Sativa Project!
Warming up in the bullpen ladies and gentlemen, we have the KOS Black Forrest selected hearty and hairy male breeder, a cross of my (female selected) Vietnam Black Jungle sativa (landrace); and my selected F3 Cherry Bomb male out of Hawaii. The landrace jungle sativa just dominated the shit out of the Cherry Bomb in this cross (“Duh” VBlack is a super old IBL); anyways, crossing that male to my selected KOS Cindy 99 female whom has endured many O torture to prove her worth. Let it be known through the kingdom:
Hahahaha… Cheers, everyone, best JuJu
