Hi Geogeo,  yes Spain  high 70'sF  22C

 

It's both. Plants are on an 8am to 8pm light-cycle.

If it's sunny and not windy they can go outside 9am-5pm from May to October.

So inside 8-9am and from 5-8pm. Dark period inside.

After October it becomes a 100% indoor grow mainly because of temps and wind until the next May.

 

I let some plants in this grow get a little bigger and double/triple harvest if the strain finishes top buds first.

 

Recent plants flipped have been lollypopped as I now only want top quality bud.. As I've got to the point of only vaping/smoking bud cured for 3 months+

Nice plants you have going on mate, I am also based in Spain but don't grow outside as much as I used too, but still dip my toes in it now and again - mostly some autos on a couple of terraces these days compared to say the big Guerilla grows up in mountains we used to do a few years back.. Too many factors like thieves, fires breaking out and of course GC getting smarter and up to date with tech ;)

Great selection of HSO strains too - Gorilla Breath I can vouch for outside if you are looking at introducing any new seedlings and also a brand new HSO strain.. How does the Chocolate Mint OG fend outside mate? I might be able to stick a couple of them out back next season after some pheno hunting indoors with some new seeds.

hi 

 

The plants are only outside for a few hours on perfect days and I've only been putting them out for a few weeks. It gets too gusty on the terrace I have to be careful.

So I can't really answer your Choc Mint question.

It's easily better than the Amherst SD, Blue Dream and Chemdawg that I've grown (so far).

It tastes of fuel. Leaves go chocolate colours late on if cold.

 

I can't afford anymore beans ... spent my last Euros on an April 20th offer on Black DOG and some Dinafem WW because they were the cheapest plus the Black DOG gets great reviews.

 

I am watching the latest grows with interest ... waiting to see if  smoke reports match the hype.

You must be more north, it is around 26c and 17c night where I am with 0 wind, so ideal weather for putting out. I am only doing autos this year bar 1 Gorilla Breath and 1 Lemon Garlic OG have in a field somewhere lol 

 

I have heard Black DOG is very good. Mark from HSO is very active on this forum so sure he will stop by soon and share is knowledge on strains :bong:

@Geoff Thank you for getting this perpetual grow up and running my friend  :yep:

 

This looks like it will be a fun one and I'll be along for the ride and watching with interest :bong:

 

Is this part outdoor and partly in mate? Or soley outdoor? 

 

Kind regards

Hi Mark,

 

It's an in/out grow .. in today ... crazy winds.

All doing well.

 

On CMOG  In March I had two clones  2/3 weeks flowering, one on a heated mat, one not ... we had a cold snap for a couple of nights. Air temp dropped to 10C/50F for a few hours.  The one without the mat stretched 9-12 inches more than the other in 3-4 days.

It doesn't really appear to stretch much at all. I can't smoke this near a bed or couch, great meds for sleeping problems or if sleeping is beneficial to recovery.

 

The Blue Dream I have is really Hazy looking pheno expression ... until you touch the rock hard nugs.

Doesn't know when to finish. Keeps exploding with new growth. Sweet smelling flower when touched. Same smell in cure. I eat a lot of blueberries ... nope sorry, not this one anyway. Pleasant taste.

Good day time smoke, good yields.

 

The Amherst is a huge yielder, but the Sativa effect makes me a bit spaced out and forgetful or I don't notice I'm really wasted until I snap out of a ten minute trance. This doesn't taste of much at all, a pleasant faint greenness when vaped, no sour or diesel.

 

Chemdawg, aaaarggggghhhhh  ... I had mucho problemas which @HSO-Mark helped with earlier in the year. 

I have flowered 1/5 so far and that was a slow slow starter. It finally yielded a couple of oz, which smelled and tasted of pine floor cleaner for a week in the jar then the smell and taste just vanished. Which is a pity as it was really strong tasting.

The effects are okay, but the weakest effect of the four. Although I prefer it to the Amherst which is now my predawn/sunrise smoke.

More than disappointed with Chemdawg so far ... but ... 

 

I have since planted 3 more seeds ... 2 look like healthy hybrids #1&#2 , another was a strange red coloured spherical mini-seed #3 ... really weird orange/red colour, easily the smallest weed seed I've seen and it looked spherical rather than the usual slightly oval with a seam.

It hatched with a short fat discoloured (orange) stem and just sat there for about a week. Then it slowly started growing.

Then it quickly developed into an indica looking plant. When I flipped it untopped, it was the same height but 15 days behind its normally developed but topped sisters.

I always have it in my mind one of these weird slow growing plants might be special ... not yet .. they are just weird and slow growing ... taking up space.

I really hope my first impressions of Chemdawg are wrong ... lol please please please as i have three of the fuckers growing.

They are getting some good light and my soil is really good. So they have every chance of fulfilling their destiny and my bong with piney freshness.

@Geoff Getting the best of both worlds  ;)

 

Indoor when the outdoor weather is poor and outdoor when the sun is out soaking up those rays  :yep:

 

Are the ChemDawg performing any better this round buddy? I recall issues early on ;)

 

Kind regards

Hi @HSO-Mark

 

Thanks for replying.

 

I've had ongoing problems with this batch of Chemdawg.

4/8  no shows.

2/8  stunted starts, very slow growing in veg, eventually grow into nice plants but 8/9 weeks veg to get where it should be in 5 weeks.

2/8 healthy.

 

At the same time I'm 100% with all other HSO seeds.

Amherst SD

Blue Dream

Choc Mint OG

Black D.O.G.

 

All healthy, great plants, amazing colours in winter especially.

All germinated at the same time, within inches of the Chemdawg seeds.

 

I think the order the seeds popped has also been a factor ..

The first was stunted then the four failures.

So losing confidence i planted three seeds when I only wanted one plant ...

All three are now flowering ...  lol

 

I do enjoy growing HSO genetics so I'm hopeful these Chemdawgs will be good.

They look great.

Fingers crossed the 2 that you do have are keepers and produce some amazing end product  ;)

I would call that a very nice harvest of some fine HSO genetics  :yep:

 

Any chance of a few dry flower shots my friend? Maybe in the best picture thread?

 

I know you've done our CMOG before, can I ask have you tried to clone her?

 

CMOG and Black D.O.G look in great shape mate  :yep:

 

Kind regards
