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!
Getting chilly now around my part of the woods here in the Pacific Northwest. The good news is our Black Poison variety passed the outdoor mold test with flying colors, and she even endured rain and foggy (very wet) and still mornings. A real delicious connoisseur sativa dominant here for reals. She finishes outdoors in the northern hemi the first week of November, and like I said, she’s a beast as far as her resistances to mold and mildew goes. Super intense and wicked tasty smoke, with long ass legs. She is some very powerful sativa; so, peeps that get a tad too paranoid on strong sativas should beware, because she is indeed that type of smoke.
Coma Cluster, “holy shit” I do loves this smoke dearly. She grows a tad sativa dominant looking, but with very large yields, and just the evilest sweet and dank (together) flavor ranges—seriously try some of this out if you want to walk on the wild side of a killer hybrid, and she can rearrange your whole day if you wake and bake with her, no important math problems should be attempted while under her influences.
Checking out (germinating) the Black Poison Skunk here at present, in fact I am just about to germinate them along with a few others, like: Cherry Hemmingway, Willie Nelson, and Big Mountain Blue (BMB was made by a good old friend of mine “Mountain” RIP, and sent to me by another old friend, “4Corners Colorado” many moons ago). I have 4 of them so let’s see if I can get all 4 to pop!
The Deep Chunk are making seeds at present and still a couple of weeks left to go before harvesting them. Also, made some of the DC x Kali Thai, Red Russian Skunk, and Boggle Dragon, for some special looking at, heh heh. Cheers everyone, and it’s almost Turkeyday!
Coming at you from one of my favorite pubs along Oregon’s Southern Coast, for today’s Rev’s Ramble. So let’s get down to it, shall we?
First of all, let me tell you how the upcoming lineup for breeding projects is looking. I have had so many of you ask me about the Red Thai from KOS (Skunk x Kali Thai); don’t worry that is next up right after this first run I am going to tell you about now… Okay, as some of you know I am inbreeding my (pre 2000) Deep Chunks in an open blow pollination. So as they blow pollen I will include a few other tasty females to get pollinated so we can have a look-see at them, here’s the roster:
DC x Red Russian Skunk – Moonshine Skunk
DC x Lemon Chunk – Cosmo’s Factory (Lemon Chunk is DC x Lemongrass Thai)
DC x Kali Thai – Chunky Kali Thai (wow)
DC x DC – inbred Deep Chunk open blow style pollination
Getting some very cool misty/foggy mornings along the coast here in Oregon. Let me tell you all right now that plants from seeds survive things like mold and other parasites way better outdoors in the ground than old clones. Clones are best in containers, and this is all in my long experience. If you grow in a moist zone and deal with Bud Rot you should give the Dark Dragon a try, as this variety has a perfect floral morphology for outdoors and moisture. The buds are huge, but not rock hard—they aren’t all airy either—they are fairly dense still. Also, I am thinking The Tombs will also have this capability in moisture outdoors and a friend of mine now is checking that very thing out for me (Thank You DR. Anarchy). The Tombs is 50% Blue Rhino 1947 and should also be a great medical variety and it does carry the famous BR1947 spasm suppression when spasms are brought about by nerve damage.
The new True Living Organics book should be available to the public any day now yay! I also want to recommend the Coma Cluster; this is my latest favorite and a superior high type that reflects the Tibetan lineage present in this variety, which I have selected for along the way. It is one of those over the top happiness rides with long legs and everything to me just seems “golden” under her influence. Very cool and super dank, and I do mean dank, literally! Very large yielding with rock hard buds dripping with resin, so give her a try for sure!
All the plants from KOS seeds should be easy to grow, they should clone/root easily, and be resistant to most potential issues that come up. A couple things to be aware of are like the Iron Cindy, and if you are flowering this variety she must be ABSOLUTELY dark during her flowering period, because she is super photosensitive. Also, the C99 should not be grown outdoors or indoors where powdery mildew is an issue, as she does have a weakness to the dreaded PM, but as long as you don’t have any PM issues, she is a connoisseur’s dreamboat, in my opinion. Cheers everyone, and thanks so much for the support.
