A huge amount of praise goes out to Joolz, Withnail and all involved at UK420 for making this great competition happen and the speedy posting out of the seeds to me .
As some of you know i've currently got two Killerskunk nearly six weeks in flower in my main room so these babies home will be my vegging tent until the current grow is finished, because the main room is only 3ft wide and the same deep i've only started off 2 from each strain and my plan is for the final pots to be 4ltr's so six plants in total and the remaining three seeds will be done in future grows. I do like to do my grow diaries so i thought i would start this one off. The seeds have only just gone in the soil so as soon as anything happens you will be the first to know!

Sweet Seeds - Snow Fruit
From Sweet Seeds we present you the abominable plant of the snow. It has a predominantly indica genetics, that in our opinion it has rarely been seen before.
This strain has an exagerated development of the lateral branches, because of this just one plant can ocupy a large extensive area of cultivation and produce by itself a huge harvest.
Due to itís high development potential it tolerates and even it requires a rich mixture in nitrogen and oligoelements just like chelates of iron to prevent non desired yellowish.
It produces suculent and compact buds due to its big length calyxes, while it blooms it exhibits a charming policromacy in its foliage with shades of green, magenta, red, purpleÖ It also develops a big mantle of trichomes in the flowering bunch and big part of the foilage during this phase.
Itís a strong strain, with a very short internodal distance and strong stalks that helps it to resist very well outdoors the strong gusts of wind. While fresh, itís aroma reminds a mix of mint and fruits of the forest, with slight flavor of toasted almonds and humus.Itís effects are very strong and relaxing due to itís high percentage of THC and CBD. Strain of high medicinal effects.

Sweet Seeds - Wild Rose
This is a Hybrid of a little known variety in Europe but with a great following in Canada and North America, the Rosetta Stone of ďThe Brothers GrimmĒ gives the Wild Rose original fresh and citric touches. The another part is a HOG, giving it the sweetness of candy very characteristic and flavoursome.
Wild Rose is a plant with an Indian/Sativa hybrid structure very well adapted for indoor cultivation. During the first few weeks of bloom it will not attract your attention but after the fourth week of bloom it will surprise you with explosive fattening of the buds which can triple their size in the last three weeks.
Wild Rose is an easy plant to cultivate both novices as well as the initiated in cannabis growing will surely be satisfied.
Indica / Sativa: 35%-65% THC: 15%-20% CBD: 1,6% CBN: 0,5%
Indoor Yield: 400-550 gr/m2 Outdoor Yield: 350-550 gr/plant

As you can see very nice sounding strains, i'm a bit worried about the Sweet cheese and Wild Rose being mainly Sativa and thinking they may stretch a lot but we will find out, got lots of bondage gear at the ready anyway .
Be back in a moment with the first pic of them just gone in the soil.
