5 pk tga Vortex all Female, at least two diff main phenos w/ differences exhibited by each. All smell like sour bubblegum at this point. Seed pop to flower no less than 3 months. Clones so well i was able to flower clones from each pheno, keep mothers, and have one of each to give away for a friend to choose his own pheno based on his environment, and to guarantee preservation. Odd numbers slow to veg but very bushy structure, #'s 3 and 5 are particularly vigorous. more to come...
Week 3 update smells and resins developing and distinguishing the phenotypic range. Although the they all are different; the aromas a near identical with heightened expressions of specific variances, especially a bubble-gummy vortex smell, and a lemon cleaner smell nearer to space queen. The two stretchiest females (#2 & #4) Have very different smells now, and very different leaf shapes now becoming clearer. #2 has a much brighter, lemony scent but a small stout afghan dom leaf shape, while #4 has slightly faster developing buds but a much more muted smell, more earthy. These two look to be the "dynamo" phenotype.
The others (#1, #3, & #5) seem to be the shorter, tighter node "cosmos" phenotype. #1 has shown a slight nitrogen deficiency (which has been addressed), but is still developing a beautiful bouquet. Very stinky bubblegum smell. More hybrid, or slightly afghan leaf structure. #3 IMO is gonna be awesome, the best phenotype so far. It has an equally strong smell, as any of the others, but a better mix of the two dominant smell, lemon cleaner and bubblegum. Tighter node structure, that look like they will link together to develop big colas. Sativa dominant leaf structure, and very vigorous grower. #5 Is smelling more like the #4 sativa dom stretcher. Very mellow odor, but nice bud structure and health.
...more to come.
Looking real good, gonna stay tuned to this
Also watching this. While my vortex is a much smaller grow than yours, we're at about the same point in flowering (I think you're ahead by a week or week and some change). Looking forward to seeing how they yield when they're allowed to really grow.
smoking vortex right now, your gonna love it. Probably one of the best strains I've had in awhile.
well week 4 and plants are fading fast.
#1, #2, & #3 all have the same smell now. pungent! the resin production is through the roof. there are trichomes covering everything, easily visible to the naked eye. incredible trichomes all over the stems and leaves around the bud sites. the smell is a creamy, sweet and sour bubblegum with lemon undertones and a banana ester smell similar to yeast smells in fine beers, such as, Aventius or Franziskaner. I smoked some Flav with a friend and it had a similar smell/ taste as what i'm getting with the vortex.
#4, & #5 have almost no smell to speak of, probably due to the close proximity to the other very stinky phenos overwhelming their subtleties. however, the bud development is much better. i'm sure these two will yield more than the others, and resin production is outstanding. if this were anything else all 5 would be keepers, but barring a potency jump in either #4, or #5 they will be run till death and thats that.
Not expecting much of a yield, even with the size, and veg time, but the smell and taste are well worth it, and if the potency is on point, its a no brainer.
i'd be interested on which phenotypes have undergone analysis and testing...
Is that towards the end of Week 4? I thought they'd be a little thicker by then. Guess it's all in weeks 7-9. I'm on week 3 day 4 and seeing the same quickly fading leaves. I thought I was fucking up real bad but I see yours are fading/dying off too so I guess it's not me/my inexperience. #5 looks great in terms of budsites/bushiness. I noticed my plant, while it does smell, also doesn't have a really crazy strong smell. Kinda dimmed my outlook on it a bit but I figure I'll wait until I smoke it to and get rid of any preconceived notions. Haven't smoked in over 3-4 months after 2-3 years of smoking daily (decided to stop to fund the grow and not deal with dealers) so I'm sure it'll be good regardless.
holy shit man.. theyr huge! u sure did chop off alot ehh? hell of a lollipop job! lol. and i kno the guy above me was sayin he thought they'd be fatter... i think they probly took quite a shock losing the bottom 1/2 of their leaves.. probly set them back a lil bit. they look frosty as hell tho. u can see all the frost man. very nicely done. think i personally woulda left a lil more on... maybe just strip the bottom few buds off each branch. oo well.. regardless.. they look great man. keep doin wat ur doin. =) im subbing
