    Anyone grow a plant with peanut butter smells to it? I'm 6-7 weeks since germination on some tga-strawberry Daiquiri, and 2 plants have a distinct peanut butter/cracker smell coming off them, even more pronounced from stem rub. This variety seems to have a few off quirks. One of these plants is growing 4 branches per node(2 stacked on top each other instead of just 1) I've never encountered this before, and 4/40 are displaying this.

    I should have a quality camera to take picture of this March 1st (start of flowering), I hope the smells and odd branching persists into flower/and onto the clones. It's fun finding this kinda stuff, you never know if it's beneficial or superficial.

    Well peanut butter isn't what you'd be expecting from strawberry daiquiries, lol. But I've never had a peanutbutter smell before.

    Same, it's almost... Salty, it's weird to describe, same soil, same water, it's unlike anything I've grown, and I've grown plenty of coffee/dirt/dark smells before, but it's not sweet at all, I'm cloning these for sure. If it stays this way, it's the most unique smell I've had in my grow room yet. I marked my cup cupss with black tape about 2 weeks ago for the most fragrant at that point, and none of the peanut butter plants were marked, it's matured in the last 2-3 weeks into this. And today it's distinct peanut/Ritz crackers like smell that I used to eat as a kid, like opening a bag, no sweetness to it, but the odor is strong, it's not a soft smelling phenotype.

    Jack the Ripper x Strawberry Cough= TGA’s “Strawberry Daiquiri”.


    There is an “earthy muskiness” that one can take from “Strawberry Cough”, so maybe that’s what your olfactory is picking up. “Nose” can be very subjective. I have an old “Purple Kush” that gives me “hot salty heavily buttered fruity popcorn” musk that many have said reminds them of “Strawberry Cough”, or Peanut Butter.

    Does it smell like Smuckers, or more like Skippy?

    I had a Dolato that smelled like a mixture of fruit and salted roasted peanuts.

    your going to need to grow several copies to determine if this is a phenotype or not.
    you can alter the flavors of your plant with nutrients, what do you feed your plants weekly ?

    just water, I don't use nutes till the plants show they need them, or once flowering starts.

    Ocean forest tends to be high in nitrogen, and good for 8 weeks from seed, I haven't had any issues in the last 3 years using 16 oz cups then transferring at roughly this time or a bit later, the only plants that don't need veg cycle are the landrace Malawi/Panama from ace seeds which can go straight into 12/12 after rooting. And the landraces tend to be more N sensitive. I also try to avoid using nutrients for seedlings/ first flowering because I want to see how plants behave without them in the mix, if I experiment on clones it generally gives me more information on how to improve growing that particular plant, and since I widdle down about 40 seedlings per grow, to 8-18 it's a simple method that works for me. I could easily start feeding them low doses of nutes, and find the nutes hogs from the start, but that's pretty apparent when they enter flower.

    Isn't there still info even when this is done? I might need to do a bit of research on how I can scrub the pics, maybe a site can do this. I'm a bit paranoid since I'm in an illegal state.

    my understanding is that will prevent you from revealing the gps coordinates where the picture was taken.

    other than not putting anything personally identifiable to yourself in the picture, you should be ok.

    not sure of anything else that might be added to the picture.

    Had grown these under about 30-50w total cfl throughout veg from seedlings till now, and I lost 2 plants to root aphids early on(contaminated ocean forest soil) I usually sanitize my soil beforehand with boiling water+ neem oil(which actually smells like burnt peanuts lol) to kill potential eggs, didn't this batch and I won't make that mistake again. The picture of the solo plant is the peanut butter girl. I've noticed that the more spindly plants have the strawberry smell coming from them, one is very sweet, the others are greasy. I'm transferring them now to 2 gallon pots and getting new LED's for my veg closet, trying to get somewhere around 7-10k lumens for vegging to keep growth from being unmanageable. I've got way too many plants going now (another 40 Plushberry seeds germinating now) I'm starting to cull the dull smelling males that show sex early.

    Closest comparison I can make.,

    I know some odors are signs of weakness, I think it was an old cannabis book I read by Chimera Seeds breeder that mentioned this. Mint is associated with weak potency, green/vegetable smells, sock/fermented/beer smells. Peanut wasn't one the odors described though.
