I just grew one out and seeded it and I also grew out a "purple" version and they're both fire!
Ooh, nice colouring on that purp pheno, very sativa'ish looking leaves, nice looking plant
Thanks you sir the smoke is out of this world
Oh ya...I forgot about those site policies..lol..my bad
We got the ice and snow here too in the midwest. We skipping spring this summer i do believe.
Yeah sounds much like here. Looks like we finally break into spring Saturday with a whopping 60F for the high, that'll feel like summer over here. Snow tonight and tomorrow, just won't quit. I don't mind snow if it's enough for skiing, boarding, or sledding, otherwise it's useless and delays firing up the Z
Sounds like your in my neighborhood, cuz you just quoted our forcast... Are you in a hush hush northern state?
No I'm up in Canada an hour north of Toronto but weather patterns are similar to a lot of northern states. Typically the main difference is our spring starts a couple of weeks later and fall starts earlier, the extremes are sometimes a bit more in temps here but not that much different.
I hear you. My backyard was finally clear then BAM, ice storm. There was so much ice on the big ass maple tree in my backyard that it was dropping golf ball size pieces. It is clear again so my first BBQ is imminent, since I picked up steak today.
Hey zoic, thanks for popping in. Exactly what I have in mind for the weekend, butcher nearby cuts some nice rib eye's
Ahh Canada. My dad is from there. We used to visit family in Thunder Bay. I remember the whole town smelled of paper mill. lol
Cool, yeah that's about the main industry up there, not much more than forestry and moose when you get that far north
Columbian Ripper F1 male, day 18 and pretty well ready to drop. Will let it dry out and use some fresh pollen to hit the CR ladies in the flower room
Up-coming babies getting settled into their pots. Going to have to do some culling I think
8x Dream Ripper BX1, 4x Blue Ripper x Fireballs testers
7x Blue Harley BX1 and a few clones in cups
Flower room is at the stacking stage, day 19 for all except one front-right which is one week behind. Total of 10 females from the 18 I had going, all in 2 gal fabrics.
There's 1x Blue Ripper x Blue Pyramid F1, 5x Blue Ripper BX1, 4x Columbian Ripper F1 at the back.
Blue Ripper buds:
Columbian Ripper buds:
Day 21/3 weeks. The Columbian Ripper's at the back are stacking quick, a little F1 vigour going on there
Columbian Ripper F1/P2, this one's stacking on the bud, should be a hell of a cola in a few weeks
Pollinated lower on that CR above, freshly hit and sprayed down. Looking like it took
So I hadn't posted anything about the phenos in there. Been watching them close as they develop and finding a few nice plants in there. 2 phenos from each of the Blue Ripper BX1's and Columbian Ripper F1's are looking like winners.
There are 5 fems of the original 10 Blue Ripper BX1's that made it through to flower. 2 of those 5 are rks phenos, that is they have that road kill skunk piss smell. What's interesting with these is that the male that made the BX1's was the original F1 male (which had the rks, right from veg on), crossed with an F2 female. I tagged those BR2-5 BX1 which was the BR F2-Pheno5 female with crazy Blueberry fuel terps. Those were the only batch sent out, an open pollination that made ~600 seeds. So there're out there if you run enough seeds. That's 2x 10 packs which gave me the rks male and 2x rks females. The next cross between the BX1 rks male and these below should hopefully increase the ratio a bit. Better chance of the trait coming through either side I'd think.
Blue Ripper P3 is crazy strong, like the male. It continues to stink like that through flowering, maybe stronger now. When I get near that plant like leaning over it to water, I get a blast of it, like a skunk pissed in the corner. Only thing with this plant is it's not a producer at all, very sparse buds and long internodes after the stretch. Structure could be better but may use it to get the rks smell through to another batch.
Blue Ripper P5 is definitely a contender for BX2 with the BX1 rks male. It also has that stink when you get near it, a little lighter than P3 but no mistaking it. This one has it all, structure, stacks well, trains well (single FIM), smell, and now showing some early frost. Liking this one so far. This one has rks and the buds are strong lemon when you get close in.
There's 4 fems of the original 10 Columbian Ripper F1's that made it through to flower. Watching a couple of the phenos, #2 and #4, both looking and smelling very nice early on at 3 weeks. Completely different in structure and bud formation, but both will be producers in their own way. P2 is more 50/50 with sativa-like buds, where P4 structure leans more towards the sativa side in structure. Both were FIM'd once, P4 generated about 8 colas from that FIM. P2 has a few side branches which are filling in nicely, plus as main that is going to produce a couple of zips on its own. Both have a skunky, sweet, fruity smell right now, just starting to come through. P2 seems to be winning on frost at this stage. Both will likely finish within 8 weeks if they continue to mature at this pace.
Columbian Ripper P2, going to be the heaviest I think. Less colas than P4 but they'll be huge and dense from the looks of it. Definitely a contender for F2's, branch is hit (on all of these) for some initial testers.
Columbian Ripper P4, very nice structure, like an octopus. Smaller buds. but lots of them and several colas to bring some weight in. Not as frosty yet but it's early.
Hell couldnt search anything, plus no notification of post. Oh well. Ok better now lol!
Yeah site seems to be up but most search functions aren't working. I'm getting notifications here & there, but definitely seems to be hit & miss. Hopefully it'll stay up while they get their issues sorted
Great write up @GroErr on those strains
Stacking, frosting, love this Blue Ripper BX1
