    My two pineapple chunks both grew balls. Rather than trying to pluck them all and see if I get any usable bud. I tore them both up.

    eh i didn't even try to pluck them, as soon as i saw them i just sat on the floor, and went "hell" (i used a better word than that), then i grabbed it, and hauled it outside, its been there ever since. Thought about harvesting the seeds since it was female and went, but more and more, i might just chop it, and start over, i still got a few months left in this season.....

    Bb2 as in big bang? I have never tried that strain, have never come across it yet.

    I've had a plant before that threw nanners on almost every bud site in early/mid flower, it freaked me the fuck out and i was mad AF lmao it went straight into the compost pile and i never fucked with those seeds again.

    What you going to do with it?

    no BB2 is a pheno, when i make run, i call them CC, or BB and then add 1 2 or 3 for how many i have going.....

    the first one the reason why i called it BB, cause it was a "Big Bitch" as in the case why i used BB in this batch

    as i mentioned before these are a Bag O Seeds, i never know what i'm gonna get, last year i picked a Ruduralis, and a couple of nice indica, the last one i finished here in this thread.....just to give you a little history

    if you wanna take a look at "it" ck it out: https://www.rollitup.org/t/classic-hermie-pictures.957623/#post-14044838

    you can take a read of what i've been doing with it as of late...

    keep in mind when you do 2 different wave lengths, you may get defencies or they may get stressed.....it would be a good idea to leave them while the are little under the cfls, then later when you get them sexed you could move them to the spot outside you like.......

    I got time for another quick one, these two sprouted on feb 14th and seem to be taking off, odd 10 & 12 blade fans too.

    Soil is still a bit hot, but should ride out in no time.

    Same OGK seeds as last time, only i won't be cloning these regardless of pheno.

    That board with all the mogul sockets previously had 23w cfl's.

    i used to clone/start seeds with it but i no longer keep my clones at this location so i figured fuck it, lets screw in some led bulbs and do a quick run in 2 3 gallon pots, i won't be fully setup till mid 2018 anyway so i got time.

    Those are feit 14.5w & 15w bulbs 3k, they seem to work nicely for the amount of power draw.

    They do, especially for the spectrum they have.....something you may look into they also make 5k series as well, now those work great in a veg situation i've found.....3k work in the flowering good too....

    p.s i still got bb2 going ....lol...."it's" turned into a little experiment.....

    in the meantime i've started coverting over to the 3k led bulbs for the closet....still gonna have to figure something out in the veg arena.....

    I've tried the 5k with cfl's, kept plants super short but growth was always slow if i didn't mix the spectrum and i didn't like that.

    I never tried that spectrum with led's though, makes me wonder.

    I've been looking for 10k bulbs for the last weeks of flower and i can't seem to find any, i shouldn't have sold my agromax's lol. The best thing i can find is a pair of led car headlights that put out 116lm/w at 10,000k.

    Whats the deal with bb2?

    bb2 hermied while she was in flower.......came in one night for nightly check, noticed some of the limbs broke off and the leaves eatin off too....later i found out that we had rodents in the house that's what got her. So i patched her up the best i could....the next night came in for watering and she had hermied herself....so a grabbed her and put her outside this way BB wouldn't do the same.....BB finished.....but bb2.....so i turn her into an experiement of sorts....i've been keeping "it" growing ever since.....cause the pheno was bitchin... "it's still growing, but it's outside in mother nature....few days ago i took to top, and i've been drying it...if you wanna take a look, ck my signature made a thread for "it". Last night i did a little more trimming in a 5gal bucket, so i decided to give it a little smack against the bucket, sure enough "seeds".....it becoming interesting...

    The little fucks decided they want to grow all branching and tops straight upwards right under the main cola so i had to start supercropping them ect.. I'll be flipping to 12/12 tomorrow, still not showing sex yet. 20180306_203920.jpg 20180306_203608.jpg 20180306_203525.jpg
