Qrazy Train keeper at long last
These are clones from one Querkle-dom pheno mother that has proven her credentials. Just placed in the bloom enclosure 18 days ago, they're already getting thick with budsites after blooming barely more than a week. An unintended added bonus with growing this TGA strain is it's rather rare to come across at the host of disp around here. Hoping to get close to an elbow this go-'round.

Thanx. I sorta' lucked out with finding this prime pheno mamma out of my first order of just 10 QT beans thru the Tude. This shot shows part why why she's a keeper. Early, vigorous branch development near the top along with close internode spacing.
Here's my small perpetual grow in a nutshell. The converted stack stereo cabinet on the left is the clone unit with 8 QT clones that also mini-veg for 2-odd weeks to finish out the month window. Then the veg unit sits in the corner holding the next set of 8 QT clones for a month. Then around the corner sits the small twin CFL powered parent unit holding precious mamma. And to the right is the door to the 54 sq/in, 1000 watt HPS powered closet bloom enclosure. Cheap, simple and productive was the idea. In hindsight I'd make the clone unit large enuf to hold a dozen cuttings. Not all of 'em ever root as well as some others. 10 would work, but better to just go with an even dozen to get 8 vigorous keepers consistently to move on into veg every month.

Just took this minutes ago. They're gettin' fuzzy and stinky already. Time to flip on the ozone gens (two Big Blue Air Ball, 12V, size of a small softball, Hi and Low settings, $150 ea.).

Now that my first wife and I are back together again permanently we can finally realize plans of long ago. We're selling and heading across the Cascades to the Ephrata/Moses Lake area in a year or two. Like I already recieve, my wife was recently awarded SSDI after a long wait for a final determination due to a work related back injury, and soon will have her green card as well. We plan on going about 4X larger over there and providing high quality monthly deliveries to dispensaries in Tacoma and Seattle for a very modest donation fee. The region is a haven for retirees and the agro-economic base makes for a different sort of rural-paced, uncrowded and considerably less expensive culture. A.K.A: "More bang for your buck!" Our retirement dreams have been realized in ways we never would have expected on a serious level, doing what we always loved to do on a hobby level anyway, prolifically cultivate dynamite dank.

Just past week 3 and lookin' phat. Trichs have noticably come on heavily in the last few days. In fact I'm embarassed to admit, largely due to our usual connection drying up, because they're already begining to swell and the trics are so advanced for this stage we broke down yesterday and sampled a few of the more developed buds that were shading others anyway. Surprisingly good and nice tasting, after sampling a tiny amount carefully dried in the oven. ? Really, I mean verrry carefully. I cut up the sticky little 'budskies', as my wife calls 'em, into very small pieces and keep oven temps around 150 or less for about 7-8 mins, monitored closely for perfection.
These are some shots of my veg, clone and mother units. Left-to-right: One of the 100 watt MH I flip on as plants warm up to the veg stage, plants in veg (Note the two on the left are bigger and denser from the Querkle-dom mamma keeper. The other two are from a Trainwreck pheno I dumped), healthy root development in veg unit, root development (@ 11 days) in clone unit, mamma (clone factory), and finally mamma's little but effective CFL powered home.

Update: Just 5 days to go and I've tapered way back on the mix strength to about 10-15%. I'll start drying 'em out by feeding them only once every day the next 3 days, and give one final pure water douse into the gravel at the main stems the following morning, and that's it. They dry out completely for the last day and a half or so. This helps them finish up well and dry better, also tweaking the taste a little xtra-sweeter.
The cut buds are samples from a side branch. The pics don't do 'em justice. Taken in natural daylight to pick up the deep purple hues on the underside of some of the tiny trich coated leaves. And in dark red and purple streaks on some of the brachs. Ought make for some classy looking bag appeal.
