I'm not sure what they are. A fiend gave me some seeds. Two sativa and two indica is all I can tell.


New Member
thanks all!
And :spike69 it's one plant per pot :) The one just turned into a bush. I think it happened when I first put them in the sun. When I transplanted them I just stuck them in the sun. I think some of the tips got burnt...
Live and learn, I just hope I get some females so I can make some clones ;-)
They are all basically bag seed but they are all from 'Sweet I got a seed!' type of bags lol

Thanks for the journal Outta!
I'll be watching your grow closely as I'm waiting on a delivery of 4 clones and have never in my life had a backyard to grow in till now...and only grew one little decorative plant for my mom eons ago. She thought it was a pretty plant, rest her soul.
Cheers on a lovely start and thanks again!

I have one guy... just haven't had the heart to kill him yet
Two ladies!
One that almost died when young came back nicely and is a lady

I'm guess this is a lady too but not showing anything yet

This is the youngest one

And the other lady

Seems if you start with Mircle-Gro just stick with it and you'll be fine. I also have water every day. I fert every 3-4 days.

That's about the third or fourth time I've heard someone say that about Miracle-Gro on these boards.

I'm not dissin' MG cause I got no dog in this hunt. Whatever works for you is what you should do.

I wonder if the reason plants become dependent on MG is because it kills all the beneficial germs and stuff in your soil and then MG replaces your soil as the primary source of nutes instead of being a supplement?

Anyway, just some random thoughts running through my head after some sativa.

Nice plants bro!

I like the symmetry of two of each.

and setting sun... I dunno but I tried to change to a regular 20-20-20 fert and the bushy sativa seemed to get mag def, switched back and no problems.

My main problem is heat these 100+ temps suck, so I have to water every day. Hopefully I can clone some of these and move inside. Get away from Mircle-Gro too
