    You are one of the few hobby breeders i trust with your crosses. Very stable for me.

    I'm quite impressed with the Orange Zkittles x Sour Diesel photoperiod I have here from Franklin

    It's growing beautifully and a wonderful looking specimen, strong and vibrant and zero issues.

    Still in veg but about to be given the chop for some clones and it desperately needs some training

    I harvested some feminized pollen from the cotton candy kush x strawberry cough x blueberry plant, seeds from changeofpace2014. I'm now trying to get the pollen super dry by double jarring it with desiccant. I've been told the secret to long term freezer storage is extreme drying. I probably won't be able to use this pollen for many more months but the goal is to cross this with my orange zkittles to do a Franklin x changeofpace2014 collaboration seed run. I'll make those available here when they're ready. The rest of the run is going well, the bruzzlez zproutz is nearly ready to harvest (not as aromatic as I wanted), as are the non-reversed branches of the cck x sc x blueberry. The latter smells AMAZING, so much blueberry. That pollen is going to make some killer crosses.

    Love it Franklin that's gonna be some real fire of a cross when it happens looking at those genetics. Cheers

    Haven't given an update for some time so here goes. My recent attempt to reverse the sour orange zkittles and the blueberry x strawberry cough x cotton candy started terribly. Several seeds died from damping off and the ones that survived grew poorly, twisted leaves, weird mottled spots. I ended up with one bbxscxcc and two sour Skittles surviving. I posted pictures on another forum looking for help and received tons of ideas but finally broke down and paid 40 bucks for a soil test from Amazon and it was the best thing I've ever done.

    I've looked at a thousand nutrient deficiency charts but nothing beats good old science. Turns out I was slightly low on ph, very deficient in nitrogen, had excess potassium and phosphorous, and deficiencies in a few micro nutrients. Since I'm now all organic without bottles, I threw some blood meal in there for nitrogen, lime for ph, and watered with a little TM7 for micros. Within a week things started looking MUCH better.

    I flipped to 12 a month ago, sprayed some branches with colloidal silver for two weeks, and here's how things are going. Looking pretty good! The bbxccxsc smells amazing, like blueberry candy. It's on the lower left. The two sour orange zkittles are just starting to get some smell, candy orange. I'm seeing some pollen so will be collecting that relatively soon.

    The next breeding phase has begun. Several months ago I successfully reached the sour diesel x (orange barb x Skittles) cross that was a goal of this endeavor, now I'm working towards stability. Just planted a sour Skittles feminized seed to reverse so I can get a collection of pollen. Also planted three regular seeds from changeofpace2014 that are (cotton candy kush x strawberry cough) x blueberry (sounds fire, right?). Hoping at least one of these is female so I can reverse to collect feminized pollen. After this I'm running a sea of green with nine different plants to pollinate.

    It looks fantastic.😍 I hope my mandarin Zkittlez comes out looking like that. I absolutely LOVE those orange and lemon citrusy buds. Best flavor and best highs. Especially when you have stuff to do.
