What’s up Playas in the Dope Show? So I have been a clone only kind of chic. For good reason. The research and development area costs a lot of time and money loss. I feel like one chance for a seed to wow me though is not fair. How many times would you give a maybe to hog up the rays on your flower table? I can’t even imagine starting from scratch. God Bless the people weeding out to get the perfect cuts for the rest of us. Just finished a round that started life as 30 seeds. Down to 7 . I only respected 2 of these. I got them ready to flower again for chance number 2. I want to just chuck 5… give the space to my glue and Paloma. Am I being too cutthroat? I did already invest so much time… on the other hand…. Dr. Phil says “ the only thing worse than a year in a shit relationship, is a year and a day”. I Dont know if I’m cut out for the old cunt hunt. Looking for hot chicks seems like alot of work. I can’t imagine all you go threw to catch a wife. No wonder boys are just inventing new species of female genitalia on line. Hard not to get lazy. What do I do? Today is the day I decide. Hurry up and tell me if I am wasting future time or if I only wasted past time. One is more valuable. I think this new guy may have beat out the Irei. Should I just say fuck it and run with the Red Heads?
How many chances do I give a test run?

I usually give it three rounds from the seed. Sometimes clones can differ from the seed version, other times the plant is getting acclimated to your climate, your light spectrum, your medium. That can take a couple generations. There is also the consideration of summer month grows vs winter months grows, environment can dictate expression. That said, your winter run may kill it, but the summer run with heat stress gives undesirable traits. This is if I’m being thorough.
Now though, if you don’t impress me by the second round (which is usually the time the first round is dried and cured proper) then your clone isn’t making it to the third round.
Most importantly, don’t waste time with an 8. Only fu*k with the 10’s. You have a better odd of finding them by popping more seeds, not hoping your clone is going to magically wake up one day, cook you breakfast and bring your slippers.
Ok, per your advice I killed almost all. I kept 2 of the dif fist bumps and of course the stranger cookies. I got seeds from soup and seeds that banner selected . Best to invest time on the proven winners. I always say… why be a number 4 when you can be a GG10. Beeachhhhhh. Ps I told them all it was because you ordered it. Gotta play good cop in the garden. Let the guy that’s not there take the heat. Right? Haaa thanxxx Brainiac
lol, always blame the guy in khakis.
You telling me you can bag no females Sunny!?!? Find that hard to believe.
I’m in the same boat. I don’t want to waste time or space to hunt. I’d rather buy a $500 clone and know it’s legit then buy 5 10 packs of seeds and keep my fingers crossed that half of them are even female. (If your hunting for phenols you shouldn’t be going for feminized ) (feminized seeds have already been hunted to an extent, no true breeder is going to feminize a shit plant ) I’m surprised you let it live that long. If I don’t like how she looks half way through flower she gets the boot. And the next best thing is thrown in her spot. I don’t got time. Patience. Or principal to let her take her time In my tent.
Haa haaaa. Yeah, I did a round and just finished trimming. The plants themselves looked great, seed vigor. Young and hung is always beautiful. It wasn’t until they matured that I saw the flaws of youthful vigor. Then I said to myself, they are irei so they gotta be good and it was me that raised them wrong. I got weak and focused on my failures instead of getting down to brass tacks. I decided that you get one round of my hps to wow me. You get the second round to prove you deserve to stay. The third round is only dedicated to the one I will put a ring on. Chicks are tricky. They fuck with your time money and intuition. I bet JR has a good wife. Seeds come and go. BUT MY GLUE STICKS FOREVER. Happy Valentine’s Day Suckkkers
interesting question. Lots of different ways to think about seeds and pheno hunting. I also find how many seeds you have access to really effects the decision making process a lot!
When Ive got tons of seeds to play with, I’m quick to eliminate stuff. When I am looking for plants for breeding I often toss a lot of plants in veg before they even make it to flower. When youve got a jar with a few thousand seeds in it you can afford to be picky.
On the other hand… When I’m growing out a 5 pack I will give each one of those plants a full shot at greatness. I’ll go out of my way to make sure they each get a good clean run and have a chance to show me what they can bring to the table.
Kinda interesting side note…. If I was pheno hunting, I think I probably would have eliminated the famous JR’s cherry Paloma cut while it was still in veg. Too stretchy and a little bit fussy. Not the kind of structure I usually look for. Nothin really interesting about her in veg and the structure is kinda problematic. But now that I have her in mid flower shes totally won me over with her lovely smell and beautiful colors.
Good thing JR is a patient pheno hunter with a good eye or that lady might have slipped through the cracks!
