    Preparing the Christmas gifts. Mostly Ninja Fruit, a 2 month old C99 mother, and possibly some Dark Devil auto in the veg room.

    After growing 2 Ninja Fruit in a 12/12 from seed run, which is not documented here, I discovered I really liked the NF. I had purchased 10 of Vaders/StonedNinja's more recent beans from LumberJack last winter. There were 11 in the 10-pack. Thanks. in the 12/12 run, I had 2 females. One was about 3 feet, and the other closer to 4 feet, both grown without any training.
    This time, I topped above the 4th node, when the 5th or 6th node were showing, and removed the 1st node. I re-topped the 4th node pairs, and in one case, the 3rd node pairs as well.
    They grew very strong and very fast under a mix of 3.5k, 4k and 5k cobs. I was planning on letting them veg longer, they consumed all of my limited veg space. after 5 weeks, I brought them to a 5x5 tent (in a 44"x44" tray), under 12 3.5k cobs at 50-62 watts. I have found that this is enough light for a 4x4, but a bit sparce for a 5x5 around the edges/corners/front.
    I could not determine sex after 5 weeks of veg, but after the first week of 12/12, it is pretty clear.
    I am not planning on breeding, so 5 ninja males left the dojo this morning, leaving 4 females for flower. One of the females was kept small on purpose as it was a 'spare' in the veg cycle.

    Some photos of the males:

    This is the final layout of the tent with the 6" netting lowered for support. 4 Ocean Grown "Ninja Fruit" females in 3 gal equiv air pots, and the 2+ old C99 mom in a 5-gal equivalent pot.
    In the 5-gallon plastic bucket are a 160 gph pump, putting nutes into a floraflex octa-bubbler, configured 'open flow'. It is pumped via 3/16 ID tubing to a ring made of tubing and 5 Tee's. 1 for input and 4 for distributing the water to the top of the pot. I will try to detail it in the future.
    I have been experimenting with feed systems. Ebb/Flow Rocks, and is being used for the Dark Devil and vegging. I tried some capillary action Bluematt, but the roots walled off the clay insert after a few weeks, restricting flow and drying pots. I considered that Bluematt a fail for anything other then early grow stages. There is also a more complex BlueMatt that uses the probe as a switch for a drip system. I used that while I was on vacation for 4 days, but not for an extended period. I am thinking that the Octa-Bubblers will be great when each plant as similar feed requirements.

    I ended up with 4 Ninja Fruit females, and added my 2 month old Cinderella mother to round the grow out. I should be chopping next week. Some will have flushed for 2 weeks, others for 10 days.
    There are two Ninja Fruit phenos. 1) Early orange-ing of pistils and faster development. Slightly taller. Deep purples. 2) Very white pistils while the other phone was all orange. Shorter. Slower development. Minor foxtailing. A pink/purple color flower. The seeds are from a BX stabilized batch, available in Jan 2018, before a rift between Vader and Ninja started. I don't know what the future of the seed is, and have kept a clone-mother.

    I’m running Ninja Fruit from the same drop (pre OG Separation) popped 4 got 1 female so far and am testing a clone of it out in flower now. I’ll chop her if she doesn’t Purple like yours. What week did she start throwing out purple colors?

    Fairly late. The buds swelled significantly during week 6, and I started noticing the purple color around then. They have deepened in color during weeks 7/8. The 2nd pheno acts like it is a week behind.
    When I grew them previously n 12/12-from-seed, much color was lost during the dry/cure, although I am pretty sure I took those early.

    Hopefully this time around it stays purple for you. I have a product called purple maxx that helps purpling slightly but I haven’t ran it with cold temps yet I just know it will cause slight purpling w/o ever dropping below 70F. As well I just did a test run where I dropped the temps and got a lot of purpling on the same pheno of GDP as well that wouldn’t self purple naturally. I might try these in conjunction with each other but it also causes massive nutrient uptake.
