    I aquired a cut of what was said to be Gorilla Glue #4. From what I have picked up on the web and from talking with other growers I believe I may have a legit cut. How can you know with any kind of certainty what you have if you arent able to trace back to momma? Are there any traits or characteristics to this strain that says "this is GG#4"? I have her bushed out now and ready to take clones from. I have heard through the grapevine that here in MI there are legit cuts going around as well.

    I kinda want to get some input on the strain first from those on here who truly know the real cuts, then I'll post my pictures of mine in veg and let you decide. This plant certainly has very distinct characteristics about it I will mention also.

    Mine reeked of diesel a few weeks into veg. And throughout her life.

    What were some characteristics of the plant while vegging? What has you certain that you had a legit cut?

    Big leaves and big branches. Mines didnt get too tall but i have heard different from others. I have smoked her before from other sources. Mine turned out better. And the person who gifted it to me has a stellar reputation. Good strain but agree now that i have smoked it.....potency isnt top notch...everything else is though.

    Does it have the leaf twist. That's sort of a signature

    Smell of chocolate diesel with leaf twist and very viney. Best way to tell is to post pics and ask

    Well, here she is. The leaves like to grow out like pinwheels and she is VERY sensitive to any kind of fans or direct wind. Lots of purple in her stalks since the day I got her. I know its strain and not environments or feed since she is along side others that exhibit no purple at all in the exact same environment and her ppm runs a bit hot compared to the others and she never flinches.

    That's is mos def her. She has a look that you can notice a mile away when you see her and yea the color on stalks is here no matter what. Stem rub in veg gives you hat coco/chocolate/coffee/mocha smell with hints of diesel and in flower she freaks of chem and diesel till after 10+ weeks the chocolate comes out more.

    Here she is close to being finished

    I was hoping it was legit but honestly had no reason to doubt what I was told since it is from someone I trust and has always been true to their word in the 17 years I've known him. I havent had it flower as I'm getting ready to pull clones from her in the next few days to get them rooted & in the flower room.

    You don't have to hope bro you have her. Feed her well she's a hog and support her well too cus her stems are weak flop city but some of the best smoke I've had. She hits every category of being elite. Enjoy her I know I did and will enjoy again soon as I get her back

    Keep in mind gg4 is a light feeder and stretches A LOT into the 3rd week of flower. She will get 3 -5 times larger in flower.

    When I grew here she was a lil heavy feeder imho she gobbled up the food like it was nothing by halfway in she was starting to fade but mines was a lil root bound too so that was part of the issue but she took everything I threw at her. Def major stretch tho but flipping smaller plants helps combat the stretch

    Light feeder meaning nute strength or feeding/watering cycle? I run DWC drip buckets and she is the heaviest feeder of my entire grow with the highest veg ppm of over 440 while others are running over 100ppm less and I dont feel I'm even close to a threshold with her. She is a bit leggy so far.

    Her stems are definitely weaker than most since I cant have her under any kind of fans/direct breeze to strengthen her up. Did you have issues with the leaves getting dried out on one spot of the egde and twisting in a 180* pattern from being under a fan? I've never seen a plant this sensitive to having *any* air blown on it.

    Now I had major air on her and she did just fine. Even grew her outdoors and she didn't do that. Could be just your environment and her getting used to it but supercrop if you can or if you like to that will help with strengthening the branches. Some plants can be very sensitive to wind especially if they never encountered it before and get hit with it hard. I've seen people have wind burn on their plants so it's not uncommon. Oh and wait till you flip her she will eat more I promise. She puts out amazing so she eats it all up

    Gg4 will gobble up what ever you give her. But she grows bigger and faster if you feed less. I do living soil so I don't add any nutes.

    Yea I'm living organic soil too but I see what your saying. I never ran her with just base soil she always had supersoil with base soil but she ate it up like it was nothing. I'm def not an expert with her tho but speed of growth was just fine in supersoil I'll have to see what the Glue heads on IC say about feeding less and growing faster and bigger

    I can't get these GG clones to root for the life of me? I pulled 7 and NONE of them were rooted @ 9 days. Cut 3 more to err on the side of caution & also pulled 2 clones from a kosher kush, and here it is day 15 since initial cuts and I have no roots on the GG#4's. The Kosher Kush clones I cut have only been in there for a total of 6 days and I have roots exploding out of the bottom?

    Are these GG#4 that hard to clone? WTF

    Naw she is one of the easiest to clone for me. Always get roots within 7-10 days and that's just rapid rooter and water nothing else. I'm simple with my cloning. Also got roots from her same time frame in just a cup of water. Don't see why you are having trouble cloning her hope that changes for ya

    Damn, I cant figure out what the hell my issue is? I gotta figure something out soon though. The momma is healthy, the clones are healthy and I got a mix of low & mid bush cuts,rapid rooters with just pH'd water in tray with a humidity dome. Sits under a 4 bulb T5 about 10-12" away. Temp in dome is 79*F and humidity is high enough that it fogs up inside the dome after a bit. All of the cuts are still lively looking and have undergone the usual yellowed out bottom leaves so its like it wants to root, but it hasnt. I've never had a cutting take this long to even start to show roots either in my bubble cloner or in rapid rooters.
