however, the hype that has been created around OG kush is ridiculous .. and noobs buy into this hype
these types of people are known as "scene whores" or hipsters, they need to follow trends ,
they are not aware that a great plant is any plant that you are satisfied with

Everyone is born with common sense, just not everyone chooses to use it.
im new here, but been growing for 37 years in pa outdoors only.ive been growing the same 3 strains for 20 some years and im done in august rock hard buds no mold some years 2 week of September no later its all in the weather that year. my plants are no taller than 3 or 4 feet tall and get 1/4 lb dry weight rock hard buds. this year im adding 2 more strians but got 2 or 3 years of work to get them to do what my other strains do no mold and rock hard buds with 1/4 lb dry weight per plant and keeping them 3 to 4 feet tall and done in the end of august or 2 week sept. i see alot of people every year im growing this strian and that strian but they dont wont mold and they wont weight well thats not how to get that.if you wont weight rock hard buds and no mold plants you got work and time ahead of you once your there the work is over and you got the best buds in town, and done early,find some strains you like and stay with them and work with them then you will get what your looking for.you got to remember one thing when you buy seeds from a seed bank remember your not getting what they say from that strain for one the strain was made some were else Latitude ,Altitude,Climate and food this has alot to do with the strain you got to ADAPT that strain to your soil ,climate,laitude,altitude,and food for a couple of years then you will have a good strain no mold rock hard buds and weight.you got to hybryd the strain and seed it 100% female seeds then your good to go any ? just ask good luck happy growing i got to go got to put out my last 15 babies i just started thats right platting babies from seed end of june they will be done no later then 2 week of sept.
same 3 strains 20 some years

i could not understand that last thread at all.......are you stoned?lol
Tga says on the packet that their strains contain recessive genetics. If the seed are F1 crosses then you won't see any of the recessive genes till you breed them back to each other.
From what I've seen most breeders are selling F1 crosses.
They give you the genes and you have to do some work to stabilize the best mix of genetics over a few generations to produce the phenotype your chasing.
If there are multiple genetics the numbers of phenotypes will increase and the chances of getting the homozygous form of all the genetics in one plant will vastly increase. Which is why certain cuts are so prized and why some breeders will say you could get that "one in a thousand holy grail" because the chances of all those different genes being produced in one plant will be just that.
If they sold say the golden ticket pheno homogenized then everyone would have caught up to the years of work it has taken them to get that pheno and they would lose their edge.
Thats my understanding of it anyway???
I dunno if I'm the only person who does this, I am known for my uncommon amount of patience, but what I do when I grow a plant from seed is I grow it until it is mature enough to flower, and then I cut clones from it, right before I flower it. After cutting some clones (aerocloner made with big airstones and a good pump + olivias = 100% strike rate in 7-14 days) I induce flowering, if the plant is male I get rid of all but one clone, segregate, harvest pollen, and destroy. If it is female, I revert it to veg and when the clones are rooted I integrate them into my system. Then, based on the quality of the first clone batch, I either keep or flower the mother plant and keep in veg or destroy any male clones I have from the strain. Of course, the hybrids I have grown from seed that I made or obtained are limited to Kali Mist x Super Silver Haze and Kali Mist x Blueberry, Island Sweet Skunk x Durban Poison, and ISS x Sour Diesel, and I grew some Black Domina x Dutch Dragon and Ice x Dutch Dragon that were bred by a friend; and I can honestly say that the only disappointing thing about any of those was that all of the Kali Mist cross phenos except for one of the Blue crosses took for-fucking-ever to finish flowering. I have only recently started growing a variety of indica dominant strains, since going legit and medicinal and whatnot, because I take that pretty seriously. Personally, I don't buy into hype surrounding strains, because I know that anybody can take a good strain and fuck it up. Herb should be judged by its crystallinity, its taste, and its texture; not by whatever name joe grow has stuck on his buds. That said, I know good breeding when I see it, and as I am restocking by breeding supply, the next two strains I get will be Medicine Man and Black Widow from Mr. Nice, and I'm thinking of getting the indoor mix from Sensi. On a related note, 3.5 days in and breakin the dirt are Satori and Point of No Return from Mandala, Darkstar from TH seeds, and the Chernobyl from TGA.
I've smoked pounds of high quality stuff over the past 5-6 years....the best batch of any weed i've ever picked up/grew was OG Kush. Second best was a cut of AK47 my buddy had that produced the biggest trich heads i've ever seen...
It's all subjective though. One mans trash is another mans treasure...
Hope for the best but expect the worse
well said gun1 i grew a Barneys Pineapple Chunk last year and cloned 10 clones then took mother plant and sprayed her with Colloidal silver to produce male flowers/pollen sacks then Collected that pollen and pollenate the ten clones this year i started the seeds and got 3 def.phenotypes ,one is a skunk,2 some cheese smelling plant,3 a pineapple plant,all def,looking
