Looking heavenly mr.Strain ya my plant that wouldn't grow this season was my blue Kush....hahaha took plenty clones to try again...haha
I am not trying very hard with the clones.
If they take, they take.
Mostly about the space I have.
Yours look awesome though Smeegs

The Stitched Up Kush seeds all cracked so I have popped them into their own cups.

The topped Cali Orange plants are showing new growth
The fridge plant

Not as vigorous as the topped Cali Orange in the grow cupboard

Time for a repot of the fridge plant and get it in with the grow cupboard children
The plants are definitely growing faster in the cupboard

I decided to see how close my phone camera could take pictures
After editing this seems about the closest I can get with clarity
I hope you enjoy these

Hi all 420 Mag personnel, Growers, followers, seekers, teachers,learners etc.
It's really by accident I came across 420 a couple of days ago. I am soooooo glad to be here.
Southern Africa (if you have not guessed by the thread title) is where I was born and looks like will also complete life's journey. There are both good and not so great things one can say about where I reside, but the Cannabis fortunes have been opening up wider and wider.
I live on a tomato farm with plenty of hydro tunnels. I don't have anything against hydro but love the smell and feel of soil. I therefore try to grow in soil and mostly in pots. So much of what I have read in the past few day has inspired me to continue to learn and discover the exciting world of variety behind the serious nature of the goals we pursue. Expanding social acceptance of medical and social cannabis with a view to release societies from age old restrictions based on fear, conformity or greed. This is at present a growing phenomenon that is finally changing laws in countries. Fantastic!!!!

Phwew. Was that all in here somewhere?

Back to growing the beautiful plant. I am not a frequent user ( once every two weeks or so ) but my wife has serious arthritis in her one knee and parts of her hands. She finds that she is relieved of pain and able to sleep better after she has a couple of puffs. She wasn't always convinced and often moaned at me a couple of years ago when I had just short of 100 plants on a remote farm veranda. She is now trying all sorts of strains and already has preferences.
I love to experiment and now have a tiny greenhouse and in the process of putting together grow cupboards, fully equipped with timer, lights, and fan. It's a process. As I have been visiting here on 420, the attitude of everyone and helpfulness has given me confidence to make it happen, whilst learning at the same time. This will not only benefit myself and my wife but our immediate and broader community. I live in a fairly liberated area as far as cannabis goes.

So, I hope that this onslaught of words has not been to much but hey that's me. Here goes......

I realize I'm late getting to the party on this one and your grow has already ended. I'm curious about any landrace Southern African genetic seed you might be growing. BTW I lived in Lesotho for two years in the 80s and loved it. Some of my best memories are from Southern Africa, and the good people I met there. I hope all is well with you. Good luck!

Clip-on macro lenses are available for your phone. They'll allow you to zoom in closer to the action.

You're welcome here Zembretti
There have been a couple of grows here so far. It's a continuous and possibly never ending cycle, or at least until I am unable to continue to grow for some dreaded reason
Welcome.
There are a few of us on 420 who are growing landlines.
Check out
@Smeegol @Lerugged for a start

On a more serious note.
I have been wanting to produce femmed seeds for a while.
I read up a bit on what @The Celt has been doing. .......
Then, thinking I had the concept, I applied pollen to 2 Cali Orange plants.
Plant 1 got some Stitched Up Kush pollen
Plant 2 some White Widow pollen

Brilliant!
Or so I thought.

No no Mr Strain, that's not right.
Fine for cross pollinating.
But not going to produce female pollen, which I finally realised was supposed to be the goal.
Produce female pollen.
Now I have to wait another month before I can try on other plants that will be ready.
Not pollen first. Treat a female plant first, getting it to produce female pollen. Then use the pollen on another female to get femmed seeds.
Wham bam thank you Mam

Just a note for you Strain, if you get GA3 (eBay, Amazon, etc) which is quite cheap, it will work more consistently than CS for converting your females, and it is also useful for germinating tough-to-crack or old seed.

Not to mention, a couple grams of GA3 will last you a lifetime lol
