Don’t Mess Up the Fundamentals

Well, longtime since my last ramble, heh heh. Let’s get down to the nitty gritty:

RIFFRAFF THAI – As I had strongly suspected, this hybrid of Deep Chunk x Kali Thai (a pre-2000 Kali Mist x Juicyfruit Thai) is a real winner; in my experience anytime you cross an olden Hashplant IBL with any kind of Thai you get some serious magic. This is no exception here with the Riffraff Thai. The pure hashish and fuel smells along with the really nice yields of large buds, just covered in resin, tell me clearly this are high on the insane meter. Now, here’s the good news and the bad news…

 

I made these as breeder’s stock for myself, so there aren’t a lot of them. Rather than raising the price on these baybees

I’m going to keep them at their Gamblers’ pricing until they are all gone—which will be pretty soon so keep that in mind—these hybrids do favor their paternal parent, the Deep Chunk somewhat when it comes to touchiness regarding lower pH ranges and she doesn’t really tolerate anything below 6.8 well.

As long as you know your shit when it comes to growing different varieties with variable needs, and in this case, pH, then you’ll be more than flabbergasted by this one; I am.

 

COMA CLUSTER – Talk about easy to grow, giant yields and deadly potent, you guys who haven’t had the pleasure of this hunny really should. I just want to give this hybrid a shout-out as I have had many-many emails telling me just how stoked peeps are with this variety, from growers using many different growing styles in very different environments. I wouldn’t recommend this baybee for outdoors unless it is a really dry environment as she may be susceptible to mold due to her dense large buds and her Iron Cindy lineage.

Some Cosmopolitan TLO Advice from REvski

Make sure you guys don’t mess up your fundamentals. Make sure you have the perlite ratios especially, and not using enough of this product will cost you in the end at harvest. When you add additional aeration to a TLO living soil, it’s like adding octane to gasoline, you dig?

Don’t forget to use mulch on top of your soil, truly this makes a huge difference per your soil life, especially up in the top layer of your soil. It balances out moisture and retains it, as well as insulates. All this means uber-happiness for the microbes, and thus, for your plants. If you don’t believe me, try mulching just a few of your plants and see for yourselves 😊

KOS – All our products are carefully bred, testing parents in multiple ways with strict controls over errors during breeding, so you won’t get hermaphrodites and weak mutants. Is always nice to have healthy, happy, and sexually normal plants for your garden. I try hard not to be all about the money, and really want to bring you all some high-quality genetics, minus all the hype, at a fair price. Thank you all for the support.

Joy to The World

Joy to the world 😊 – Don’t look now, it’s Biker Rev, heh heh. So, here’s what I gots going on around the kingdom; and, I just gotta say I am so over the rain and clouds! Okay, on with the show:

Willie Nelson:

It’s going to be so close with these two beast females in these 2.5 gallon containers, just add water so far with a good top dressing with a new layer of castings and mulch. Unfortunately for me I was under the impression these would not go longer than 14 weeks, but normally 10-11 weeks. It would seem in their f2 recombination the South East Asian Sativa was the dominant genotype by a decent percentage, so these f2s go more like 16 – 18 weeks, yikes! I’m past the point of no return on them now and cannot risk doing anything not even a tea really, lest I ruin the connoisseur quality. If they don’t quite make it all good I will hash them up and still enjoy; I think they’ll make it, but not certain.

New Sprouts So Cute:

Got 3 Fat Tuesday and 3 Skyanchor sprouts up and out of the ground. The Skyanchor is a cross between my PSI (Purple Salem Indica) and a Bogglegum (BOG) male. Wicked chit Maynard.

In The Bullpen:

See that bad ass looking plant in the back corner in the group shot? Thant’s my selected Cherry Hemmingway male, he’s been put through the rigors and has come out with flying colors. Surrounding him are 4 selected Darkling Sativa females and they will very soon be doing the nasty together to make some of what I am going to call “Hemmy Black,” so picture a very evil smile when you think about that one! Make sure and sign up for the newsletter here at KOS and get notified via email when we have new releases to The Gamblers’ or regular stock.

Check Out Global Issue of SKUNK Magazine:

Grab this copy of SKUNK Magazine amigos, the Global Issue. Don’t miss the awesome TLO article in that issue, it’s a huge ass article that I think can clear up anyone on TLO growing.

Coma Cluster:

This ramble’s suggestion of the month from me, Coma Cluster. Man, this variety is one real hunny, the ride is just so well balanced and stunning potent in an intense way with long ass legs too. Flavors are extremely satisfying and yields are great. So, if you are looking for something different, you may just wanna give this girl a whirl, I’m definitely flowering some for my next smoking harvest. One of my favorites for a while now.

Later G8Rs:

Keep the shiny side up and the dirty side down my friends, until next time, REvski out…

 

 

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!

Happy Turkeyday!

medusa-headed-seeded-up-kali-thai-all-tloGetting 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 true-living-organics-2nd-edition_revindeed 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! deep-chunk-male-nov-2016

Poisonous Skunk

red-russian-skunk-fat-with-seedsGreetings my esteemed KOS gang. Springtime is looking beautiful here along Oregon’s South Coast. Right now the Gamblers’ Table section is fat with some gamblers’ stock, including Coma Cluster and The Tombs—both are looking pretty incredible—also very soon now you will get a shot at the Black Poison Skunk hybrids I am making at this verykos-boggle-dragon-mommy-breeder-for-coma-cluster moment. You can see the mommy Red Russian Skunk in the photo, yowza!
I am also making some Black Poison Sativa f2s, so if you are a breeder especially, check those out soon also at The
Gamblers’ Table for a limited release before actual testing. Myself I am looking very forward to both of these varieties, and as many of you know I am a huge quality sativa fan.
I also wanted to add here that if you are a connoisseur cannabis person, you should really check out our lines of C99 and Iron Cindy f2s, both are really kick ass sativa varieties with huge thumbs up from me,
and I always like to have some of these around because the experience of the ride with both of these is very unique in my opinion, in the whole cannabis genome. Really special.
kos-seeded-up-black-poisonAlright that’s it for now, keep the shiny side up and the dirty side down amigos. 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!

Can you Smell a Skunk?

Greetings Earthlings, Rev here, along with what seems to be an early spring here in Southern Oregon, along the coast. Time for another Rev’s Ramble for March, so let’s get to it, here’s what’s up amigos…
 201602284-iron-cindy-f2
Coma Cluster and The Tombs will be making a second appearance in the Gamblers’ Table section here at KOS soon, as I am making a second run of these now and they are about 40 days from finishing. I really need to hear from you regarding the sexual ratios of The Tombs, so any of you that have reports for me please share with either myself or D. My email is rolanterroy@yahoo.com FYI.
I have been partaking of a lot of Dark Dragon and Dark Rhino lately, yikes! The Dark Rhino is a total “Daywrecker” type and came out really heavy indica and will stone the shit out of you for a very long time! The Dark Dragon has leaned more sativa and will get you wicked baked indeed, with that functional-ish type of high that I just love huge. Great flavors, smells and yields for both of these varieties. The Dark Dragon should be especially bad ass outdoors where moisture is an issue, due to her extremely capable outdoor floral structure. Bottom line is, Dark Rhino will get you wicked stoned off your ass, and Dark Dragon will get you wicked high off your ass; LoL!
2016030313-red-russian-skunk-teensPS: The Dark Dragon makes some fine ass exquisite dry sift hashish, yessir!
Coming Soon
Black Poison Skunk, and Mobius Dragon. BPS is going to be a cross between my Black Poison male and the Red Russian Skunk I brought up recently. The Mobius Dragon is Black Forrest male x Boggle Dragon. Both should be very special, so look for these in the near future at the Gamblers’ Table section here at KOS.

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 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

The Gamblers Table

Greetings Earthlings! Rev here with the monthly Rev’s Ramble for August, and it has been a hot one lately here in my small town located along the southern Oregon coast. Making some of my famous (mostly in my own mind) spaghetti that takes a whole day to make, and wow, is it good! Can’t wait to have some for dinner tonight, yum!
lots-of-flowering-and-breeding-going-on-under-plasma-lighting I have a few of each of the new releases, Dark Rhino and Dark Dragon up out of the ground and looking good; just want to check ‘em out myself, as with anything KOS releases. But D and I are talking about releasing a very limited number of packs of these—at a very cheap price—for you gamblers out there, allowing you to get a really good deal before I actually know what these genetics can do. Now in all honesty I very rarely am off my mark and with everything I have made breeding over the last 3 decades I can count on one hand the number of varieties that didn’t make the cut and weren’t killer. So there are good odds for any “gamblers” out there and a really good price for the “brave” customers who want to take advantage of these early releases. Just keep in mind we will only let a VERY small number of packs of each variety (Dark Dragon & Dark Rhino) so if you are gonna pull the trigger, so to speak, better do it fast, heh heh. Not really a big gamble at all, if you ask me, LoL.
The Iron Cindy inbreeding project is really going well, and at the time of this writing there are about 40 days left until we will have some of these Iron Cindy f2 beans, and we will be releasing these as well, again, at a great price to the KOS consumer fully-pollinated-and-seeded-iron-cindy-500w-plasma-2nation!
Next up as far as the next new genetics I will be breaking out to work with will be KOS’ Cherry Hemmingway, and KOS’ Blou Bart; I made each of these hybrid varieties about a decade ago, specifically to work in the future, due to each of these having some very special expressions that run homogeneous in them, and if you are a breeder, then you know how awesome that is.
Well I had better go give the simmering spaghetti another love-stir and water some plants, watch for the new “Gamblers Section” here at KOS soon; so until next month, L8r G8rs!
