    np!
    I guess idk without tasting the 2. they are both kinda fuely kinda Coffee like. Well i guess a lot more fuel skunk for the og18 and more coffee skunky with kosher. coffee is kind of a stretch too i just can't think of a really good comparison. its good tho. You will know if you got a winner to she will kick you in the chest every puff. mine you can smoke half a Joint in 1 hit. JUST CHEIF ON IT and it goes down so smooth then she blows up in your chest and reminds you of how strong she is. such a full flavor too, not hollow at all. I guess try to find some 18 or kosher around and compare. I've sat down with all 3 and gone back and forth between em all comparing. Thats how i figured em out.

    By your name id say u like to scrog? id say she's perfect for it she's a bit stretchy but thats good it will get em all up and in the screen nicely.

    Thankin you my man! I started off scrogging but gave it up in favor of perpetual in the same space..
    Sooo off your reviews alone I don't think I can go past this as my next port of call..(maybe thc bomb)ive got a critical jack, berry bomb and mkultra to get through before that though..love that resiny, coffee,hashy flavor...sounds sublime

    Your welcome, Ya its yummy. You will hear a lot of down talk on this one just cause its got so much hype but if you find a winner it will treat you very well. I have some very very picky patients that seem to ALWAYS have something to complain about and this one had em silent and happy! I repeat tho, you gotta find a winner. the 4 besides my winner were pretty mediocre. Thats the case with any strain really. they weren't all that bad tho either, patients seemed to enjoy them as well but the winner was knock your socks off!

    The yield was VERY favorable too. 5 off of one in a simple 5 gallon nothing to big and fancy. 1 or 2 tops maybe.

    To bad you weren't in the MI area id hook ya up with a cut!

    Nice of you to offer champ! Was that done organic or? Is that pheno easy to spot in veg? At 20 bucks a sd you would hope theres a winner in every pack..

    Aye i run a top dress program with rainbow mix. i use a few liquid nutes too, to spice it up. never get over 400 ppm. I had one out veg all of them by a long shot. she actually yielded about the same as my winner but she was the one that lost her flavor the most, kinda got a chalky taste to her. if i woulda had to choose by the veg it woulda been her and i think i woulda been bummed if she was the only one. I did know 2 weeks into bud that she was gonna be the winner. pretty much as soon as she started showing buds she smelled almost as good as she did when she finished. The winner did veg very unique compared to her sisters, she grew just like OG18 kinda trainwreck light. pretty stretchy but not unmanageable at all. THe winner had medium leaves too. i had one with really thin leaves that gave me light buds bud had a cotton candy after taste to em. (kinda weak and not pleasing) I had 2 with really broad wide leaves and they both did well i had to work on getting light to those ones.

    With the genes anything even half good is gonna be a contender for a spot in your room. Its 91 a 6 pack on the tude. Thats 15 a sd at least!

    Rodger that..you make sense man, where yours from feminized sd? Thought I may have seen regulars somewhere? Does the sativa looks come from the kosher do you think?

    Mine were feminized. was a bummer but i couldn't find any regs. I only noticed some wieners on the winner and 1 other and it was just one here and there among the underbuds nothing outrageous. i didn't notice this until i was trimming too it wasn't a seeding issue or anything like that. I also have caught a couple wieners on one of my critical mass from CBD crew and those guys don't fuck around so my guess is i have a minor light leak or some nute stress is causing it so i wouldn't worry. maybe just make sure your light tight before tossing em in.

    idk i haven't ran kosher yet. The net tells me she's "mostly indica" for genetics. i just googled kosher to compare and the pics with thin leaves do kinda favor what she looked like. The sugar leaves looked smokable on that pheno. very high crystal production she had very airy buds and a very very low yield. It didn't taste kosher kushlike at all either or OG18. probably just one of those lost genotypes that pop up all over the genome (i.e. that shitty lemon flavor or rubber flavor thats in most strains)

    I got a pile of seeds by other breeders just so i can catch em all! (nerd reference of the day!) But i know i would be way less inclined to test out all the new beans i have been and am about too if i didn't have my HGK in the stable. She's my comfort zone, my insurance! That whole desert island thing they say on attitude in the description is right for me. if tomorrow the laws changed that i could only have 1 strain or 1 plant. it would be my HGK. she's my favorite out of all the beans I've popped so far.

    I havnt. I had a shitty pheno of Master kush. No idea what breeder, got the clone at a clone sale at a doctors office. it wasn't very good so i can't really compare.

    If you like Bomb seeds genetics, I would recomend THC Bomb.
    I am flowering several of them now. This is my 3rd time with these in my perpetual grow.
    I just chopped one yesterday and got some real nice hard dense nugs.
    I cropped this one that finished yesterday, and that is my plan from now on.
    It is a bushy, tight plant with very little stretch. She will produce a good yield with no manipulation, however the one hanging now(that is cropped), looks like it will yield a lot more.
    There is a bit more trim work with these babies, but you get a lot of kief leaves.

    It is VERY GOOD smoke, with a sweet, berry taste and smooth. The high lasts hours.(and I smoke everyday, several times a day)

    Ive been wondering about bomb. a buddy of mine runs THC bomb and hands down won't make room for any of my "elite" genetics I've been collecting. He claims he's all set with THC bomb. I'm waiting for the next batch so i can try it but he's claiming big things out of it.

    Surprised the hell out of me. Like I was saying, it is a bushy plant, but every available space on the branches is filled with buds.
    They stack from the main stem all the way to the tops. Each branch is literally one giant connected series of buds.
    You need good light management, or the interior buds don't harden as much.
    This stuff is resinous, so even fluffy buds, are heavier than they appear.
    The first time I flowered it, I grew it straight up with no training, manipulation, etc..
    Vegged for 4 weeks, yielded 2.6 oz.
    I cropped one to create several tops, and I am hanging that one plant right now.
    Just from a very rough estimate, it looks like this plant will yield at least 50% more.
    Your friend has a point though. I could see why he is content with just running this strain.
    Easy to clone, grows like a dream, not finicky, finishes in 55-65 days, and is STRONG!

    Ive had some of his earlier work and it never was very good so i cant blame him for doing what works for him lol. he was so excited talking about it too, very enthusiastic. That tells me he believes what hes saying.

    HGK420, dude your passion about this strain is amazing. It is very well received by me. I too saw the "stuck on an island with a single strain" thing on the Tude as well and I said, "Ok well done marketing dept. I'll buy." This is a stinky plant and I look forward to my first cured toke:weed:...a fuel taste you say?


    It looks like I'll be chopping my HGK within the next few days. I am on day 66 of flower. Here is a new video update. The 1st 4 plants are OG Kush, then the last 4 plants are Holy Grail Kush.

    Update June 1 2013
