Solo cups looks like fun 😀

How do you keep them to just one big bud/cola?

@jsh1973 most of the seeds I run in the solo cups are the Cobra strain (known for a single large cola and very little side branching).  Not all Cobras will preform like this but most do.  I would usually trim off any side branches to make the plant focus on the main cola but been so busy I just let these ones go.

@grower-urban

Super, thanks. 

Hadn't heard about that strain (I'm totally new to growing) 

Can you recommend a place to buy that strain?

 

Regards

@jsh1973 I bought my beans from https://www.truenorthseedbank.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=Cobra but looks like they don't carry them anymore.

They are by Flash seeds if that helps. And looks like seedsman has them

https://www.seedsman.com/en/cobra-autoflowering-feminised-seeds-3

But mine were the reg auto version so I was able to make a few beans 😉

The bug situation didn't get any better using 'natural' methods

20201012 111446
20201012 112954

So

20201012 111706
20201012 111859
20201012 113317

 All got

20201012 114356

 And it sucks but what needed to be done.  Some were too far along into flower to spray anything I'd feel comfortable smoking afterwards and I need to protect the next batch from the bugs.

Tomorrow after work I will push the button on the nuclear option (Dr.Doom).  For now everything is coming out of the tent and getting thoroughly cleaned and vacuumed.

🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬.  🤬.

 

I know everyone says it but I guess I needed to learn from my mistake DON'T BRING AN OUTDOOR PLANT INSIDE

@grower-urban liv and learn brother. A while ago I read, that being a farmer sometimes implies making tough executive desicions. It comes with the job.

This sucks brother but I see your process. Looks like you did get some data out of the project at least. Smoking the results is always a bonus tho.

Yes @MonkeyDo the data says I'm not to be trusted lol.  On the plus side doesn't look like the seedlings have been attacked, hopefully none laid eggs in the soil 🤞🤞 either way getting a bug bomb tomorrow (had to work late and store closed at 6).

Looks like the bug problem is consistent

20201014 183355
20201014 183405

Haven't had a chance to Dr.Doom'em yet (worked a little late and had to drop some beans off to 'the pikey' for the 4x4 grow).  Tomorrow these are getting bug bombed 100% as some are starting to preflower.  Will be on the look out for Damascus earth or sand as well, they probably already laid eggs in the soil.

 Finally got the nuke.  At lights out these bug bastards dead.  Just in time as well, 3 males and 2 females have shown

There was a bit of nuclear fallout

20201016 163045
20201016 163049

I hope this was caused from the bug bomb and not a separate issue.  Happend over night and the plants most affected were closest to the fogger so 🤞🤞

 Had to move the 3 confirmed males out of the tent.  They just looked way too close to nutting all over and having random pollen flying through the tent

20201017 173227

Rearranged the 🤞🤞 females to give them better light

20201017 174938

 Contemplating spraying some of the confirmed females with my STS solution (to reverse a female into a male but the resulting pollen with be feminized) that appears to be working in my Purple God Bud grow (reversing anyway🤞🤞).

Decisions decisions lol

Another 2 males join the sausage party on the stove.  Both were Cobra VS Lambs Breath making a total of 3 males, 1 female and 1 yet to show

20201020 165534

🤞🤞 its female as it looks like its learning more towards the Lambs Breath side of the family (and so is one of the males).  Definitely want to cross the 2 and move this line more towards the Lambs Breath (sativa) side.

 

This is the Lambra (Cobra VS Lambs Breath VS Cobra)

20201020 170220

These are definitely the smallest and quickest to flower (I call them "hair trigger").  Could be a good thing or bad depending on your grow.  I will recross her with a similar male Lambra (the first to show).  I intend to use these next gen seeds in micro grows to come.  Depending how they finish size/bud wise I could easily see 25 solo cups in my 2x2 in the future 😉.

 

The Cobra Crank (Cobra VS Green Crack)

20201020 174659
20201020 174708

Is definitely showing different expressions, some like the Cobra and some like the GC.  Will look for a happy medium when recrossing and possibly cross into the Cobra VS Lambs Breath line with the plant that displays most like GC.

 

Last but not least is the bubble gum

20201020 175723

 They are the tallest out of the bunch but not many side shoots and neither has shown sex yet.  Was warned these might be semi auto but after another week hopefully root bound enough to force flower 🤞.

20201020 174739

And yes I've already knocked over cups in the freshly cleaned and fumigated tent 😅

Another male joined the stove top and looks like another will going there soon (90% sure it's male but will wait a couple days till it fully shows).  The Lambra has already started dumping pollen

20201022 182206

 Will have to start picking males soon and get rid of the rest.

20201022 181635

Only a couple plants left that haven't shown sex.  The females have started their flowering stretch.  Will probably have to add nutes soon but PH'd water only so far.

 

Looks like I have some room in the 2x4, guess I need to start more beans lol😅

Then there were 10 (females).  Unfortunately for me both Bubble Gums were male.  Not sure if I will cross them into other lines or not.

 

Will give it a couple of days before I choose which males to use on what females but time is coming soon.

 

Will post plant pictures when my data resets or I can leach a buddy's wifi
