    these hopefully girls have been a little neglected only getting water for past 10 days or so since i've been out of town but they are ready to be topped and sexed

    out of the beans so far, i went with 6 to start, all six popped in 36 hours.

    these girls are about 2 months old from paper towel at this point, they are screaming for food and sex

    still they have a nice healthy look, even the leaves the kitties have trimmed. a bit lanky, but to be expected right now, once topped and get a better position under the lights they should be rocking as all have nice thick stalks

    yea, i can't wait to see what these do and thank you for the confidence.

    This first grow of them should have a learning curve, I may not go crazy with nutes until i see how she acts. They haven't been fed really in a while because we didn't want the plant sitter messing up bloom and veg nutes so just told them to hit everything with RO water. I can see some of my heavy feeders looked starved, but these girls are still smiling so I'm not going to go heavy.

    plan is to clone tonight, then give the moms a week or so then sex.

    I think they may be light to medium on the feeds. I haven't had to feed the Sativas as much. I know Super Silver Haze only likes when I feed her once or twice in flower. Nectar is kind of a hammer and I've found that Sativas can be finicky if fed too hard sometimes, so I have been trying the minimalist approach with them and finding good results. The pheno of Disco Time that I have running in veg hasn't had to be fed much. This could change when I transplant into an 18 gallon tote and let her grow out under a MH, though.

    I've enjoyed seeing your photos of plants in the past, so your work speaks for itself.

    all clones, now the debate on sexing, do i let parents go for a couple more weeks so they are of decent size when i flower...or do i sex and concentrate on the clones and making them happy.

    part of me wants to run like i normally do and sex but that would push back a real run by about 2 months but with known females, the other side of me wants to see what kind of smoke these people put out and flowering parents in a couple of weeks while clones veg

    My curiosity would get the better of me and flower them out. You have clones.

    I flower the plant out the first time I run it, but I wait to flower until I can see pre-flowers. I take cuts of all the phenos to let them veg out again, and hack down the ones I don't want after trying the flowers or watching them grow.

    You could also take multiple cuts while the plants are still vegging and sex cuts. I would take multiple cuts of each so that you could throw the bigger plants in flower once sex is determined without having to take more cuts.

    3 girls, 2 boys...and i believe a hermie, not sure though. I see i def pistil but think on another branch a club may be growing, ill know in morning if she stays or goes.

    Pics up after transplants in a few hours.

    So far, easy peazy grow, strain is taking to nutes at normal feed without the slightest sign of anything except health.

    Im going to consider today 0 day and figure on about roughly 10 weeks, give or take, prob give a week till harvest.

    The plan is too scrog, but may not depending on stretch considering these are younglings that just got sexed.

    But the do look happy, cheers to disco for that

    Thanks for the update, Nippie! I am hoping there's just a pistil that hasn't come out yet, but shit happens I guess. I've had times in the past where I thought things were male, and they ended up being female later in veg. Hopefully that is the case.

    Shes totally got female showing, but worried about a lump i see. But to early to say you know.

    But so far, you deserve props, easy grow. Not finicky at all.

    Flowering is where its at though, but im sure that will be not eventful til harvest lol

    here's the males, and the one i do believe to be hermi, it was the runt since it popped, not taking a chance specially since she doesn't even compare to structure nor health of the other plants

    first male

    male 2

    runt and possible herm, shes a pistil on one branch, and a sack forming on the other. it could still possibly be a female, but taking some time off soon and i don't trust the judgement of the babysitter

    The runt definitely looks like it's been falling behind. I haven't seen many herms in veg since I started growing, but I do remember some Thai crosses I had in the past that did this when they were stressed.

    It may be from stress, cat removed it from rockwool when it popped and like i told you a while back, its always been the runt.

    I would not blame genes on that one for sure given the background
