Got an update on the SFV OG Dwarf that I began breeding a few months ago. She has seeds that are large enough to use, so I was able to get two seeds off of her branches. She’s ever so sticky, and she has a twin! I found an exact match plant that’s about an inch taller, but the same count on branches and The Identical look. So I’ve decided to breed Dwarf #2 with a large SFV OG.
I have decided that the males are very valuable to keep for breeding, as I threw many away, I am so sad that I did that now, but I’m growing more & males are popping up here & there. So they’ll be back at some point we’ll just take a little while.
The other breeding projects are still in the works and there’s no seeds noted as of yet. The important thing for me is to carry on in my Grandfather’s tradition, as he loved the dwarf plants, I’m also loving them! You’re so cute, and so easy to work with. The only thing that I probably should get, is one of the very fine trimming scissors that would be for very small exact trimming.
Because these Dwarfs are so small; some of them full grown almost at 4 inches tall, the seeds are not easy to see. the buds are so tiny they’re smaller than a pencil’s eraser cut in half. I’m helping to grow a larger Gas Leak at some point because the strain is so nice with pain killing. I’ve been thinking of reading the SFV OG Dwarf #2, with Gas Leak male. at least one branch.
I have tags that I made out of my tea bag end with the string and the paper at the end identifying what type of tea it is. I separate the tag paper, then write down exactly what I’m doing. Have to write small, but you can see tagging the area is pretty easy for breeding is to keep track of everything. And it was a very wise breeder/grower recently that told me to get a notebook, so I have one on the front that says ”You Got This!”, and I have several notes in there already. The only problem is because the Dwarfs are so small, do I have to write in small print as well? Oh that’s just a little funny for everyone.
The update on the Kush Mints is that she had a dried and that look like it was ready for Harvest. So I couldn’t help myself, I touched each part of the bugs, they fell right off in my little bucket. I guess it’s a little bit more earlier Harvest, but very welcome.
The smell of the Kush Mints is absolutely outstanding! Wow she’s growing a hefty strong skunk stank. While this bud’s drying, she’s a very sweet smelling light mint hint with a touch of mint chocolate. I have tried these buds in their early stages on the Volcano Vaporizer, and the baby buds alone or a knockout!
So often away I go to continue my breeding journey of dwarf cannabis plant. I’ll keep everybody posted. unfortunately because I have so many things to do, I can’t come back here daily and give you updates. Nevertheless I’m taking very good note oh, photos, and keeping track of everything.
The one thing I’m noticing is that in my experience so far, each of the strange that I’m working with do not have mold or any thing like that. One time there was a caterpillar that came to visit, but I decided to lead it to somebody else’s house. Some of the plants I began in February, and some of them a few months later. And at one point I saw a snail, and I’ll give everybody a recipe for how to get rid of snails: get a coffee can with the lids or something with the lid that you can throw away. Get and keep a large container of salt you know the one you buy at the store that you refill your salt containers with. Ben little bit of salt maybe a tablespoon in your hand and throw that in on top of the snails. You will seafoam bubbling, and if they’re not all gon/exterminated, then just add a bit more salt. It’s much safer than pesticides as I do not use one chemical oh, I only use natural oils mixed with water and my special green soap.water mix for spray bottle to keep the pests away. And I dust the plants off each and every day during the flowering & take each spider web off-I get a stick & swirl it around to catch them. Normally I do have a spritzer of water that I spray the spiders and keep the spiders off and I also Spritz the outside and the inside of the containers to keep anything wanting to travel into plants a detour. I have left of little things to share that I’ve learned along the way that hopefully will help everyone. Peace and happy growing to everyone.
