Last year at Hempfest, I was able to meet, and medicate, with the Emperor himself. Upon end of the evening and many hours of discussion of cultivation, from old school method to new and in-between, I was given a vial of 8 seeds. Around March I relocated from Los Angeles to Wyoming for school, was kicked out for possession, then moved to Denver, CO, (a recent MMJ state), and wound up working with a Hydroponics retailer. Unpacking some of my things from storage, I came across the thought lost vial of seeds. Excited, I ran inside and started the germination, now I dunno if elevation has anything to do with anything, but only 4 were still viable and actually popped a taproot. They're around 3 weeks along now, and growing relatively small and slow, and seem to have a "genetic default" called Triploid Mutation. I guess on every node is 2 branches with random nodes having 3 branches, and all sets of leaves having only 3 fingers, like in younger stages. Im at the 4th node and only have 2 branches, but still only 3 fingers, and can see the new growth starting, and can tell where there will only be 3 fingers still. Using a 400w MH for now in my basement apartment closet, summers here are hot as hell, temps in the 100's the last few weeks, keeping my room around 84* with light on, and 78* with lights off. Temps DID reach 91* when I went in there this morning, but forgot to leave the window open n shut off fresh air to the room. Using Fox Farm Organic soil, with bat guano and earthworm castings, plus another shot of earthworm castings to 2 of the 4 babies. Nutes are a 8-10-6 i think, im writing this from a friends computer and dont have them on hand. Fox Farm Tiger Bloom. I know its early for bloom juice, but had a sickness take effect quickly in the first week or so, and they are starting to liven up. Also, AS THESE ARE "SUPPOSEDLY" THE LAST REMAINING STRAIN OF JACK HERER'S CONCOCTION, IM OBVIOUSLY PRAYING AND PRAYING FOR SEEDS!!! I heard you can take this "triploid mutation" and stabilize it, thus creating a chromosome or "gene" in this strain. Maybe this was done on purpose? As triploid mutation and 3 branches has been reported to produce 1/3 more hydroponically. I dunno, so hoping with stress and strain put on these 4 plants, Im hoping to at least catch a male, n if not some hermies. I'll be starting a journal as soon as I can get my hands on a camera. Happy Growing everyone!
