Balls! This is what they look like. I knew it was growing too strong and too fast. I'm going to let it grow and save the pollen. Now I need a female so that I can take these Sunset Sherbet OG crossed with Banana OG seeds to the second generation.
Sunset Sherbet OG crossed with Banana OG. The leaves are bigger than my face and they smell amazing!
I hope it's a girl! This is how amazing it is to grow from seed.
These ones got a late start but they've doubled since I put them out here a few weeks ago.
This is Johnny's Dream. It's Blue dream crossed with Gorilla Glue and Clementine. I'll do a post when I can about Johnny. This is a special strain. Look at how frosty the leaves are looking. Outdoor organic in December. Amazing!
This Sunset Sherbet OG plant has been growing since around July. I harvested it and just then my mother plant died. So I'm trying to reveg her. It's going to take a long time especially since it's winter time but it's starting to flip! See the green leaves coming out of the purple buds? I've got 5 LED lights on her.
It's legal now (in most states) so let's start growing cannabis. Where do you begin? I'm going to just talk about California since I live here and I want to keep focused on growing and not so much laws. In California we can have up to 6 plants. Depending on your local government, you can grow them outside. Some cities and counties will add layers of prohibition so check here to see what your local laws are.
Let's talk about the difference between seeds and clones. Growing clones has a big advantage because you know exactly what you are getting if you are fortunate enough to see the mother plant and even better try some of the bud from one of her past clones. At the very least you know that it's a female. When you grow from seed you won't know if it's a male or female. That means you could spend a lot of time raising a plant that you will ultimately want to kill unless you want to get into breeding. Seeds on the other hand come without any hidden diseases and are inherently stronger and more robust.
Most seed producers are in a rush to get sales going so they don't put in the time to produce a truly stable genetic. You may get freaks and hermaphrodites. You can buy high end seeds from reputable dealers but they can cost up to $300 for 10 seeds and there is no guarantee that any of them will be female. I would suggest checking out Leafly's listings for clones and seeds.
I am not claiming to be a master grower. Far from it. I'm still learning after 10 years of trying to get it right. So, let's grow together! I'm going to share with you all my tips, mistakes, and photos. Please feel free to ask any questions.
I'm in Long Beach California so my outdoor experience will probably be different than yours. This year I had 4 harvests. I grow outside year round. I only use water, worm casting tea, beneficial bugs, and companion plants. More on that later.
It's getting ready to rain and temperatures are down to the high 40's at night so I built a very cheap greenhouse. Check it out.
I'm not ready to let them flower so I put solar LED lights on them. They will keep vegging (growing and not flowering) until I remove the lights.
