Bodhi Axis x SSDD

Well I lagged long enough starting a journal here. I like the way guys here make a perpetual journal so maybe that is how I will go once these are done. Basically these are near ready for flower so I will just recap to catch things up to get things current.

What I understand about the cross is that the Axis is composed of Congo x g13hp and SSDD is Bubbashine x Appalachia. This will be a first here as I have only grown g13hp crosses and not Congo or anything with SSDD in it. I am really looking forward to this grow as during my research these individual strains all look to have impressive qualities on their own.
Medium used:
I use a mix of promix HP and recycled soil that is amended as needed. I maintain two bins with one being more of a veg leaning mixture and the other being more amended for flower. In veg amendments included are alfalfa, garden sulfur, worm castings, oyster shell, a bit of crab meal and some bio-live. Flower mix is mostly the same but the alfalfa is withheld and fish bone meal is added as well as charged bio char. Nothing is ever really added for nitrogen as leaves and roots are recycled and there is plenty of N available in other sources.
Lighting used:
In veg I have been using 8 bridgelux gen 2 strips in 3500k and 4000k in a 2 x 2. They run super cool and put out plenty of light on an HLG 120. For flower I have switched to 4 luminus gen 4 cobs in 3000k and 3500k @ 90 cri in a 4 x 4. Power supply is an HLG 320 which will be dimmed as needed. So far I have found that to be more than plants can handle in that space.
--------------------------
Mrs. B was kind enough to send me a second set of beans after the first set was mushed in the mail, thank you! The new ones arrived safe and sound and 8 of them are now in a paper towel in a sandwich bag wedged between a router and nas.

Ok, now I should be updating these a bit more as all have shown sex. There are 3 boys, 4 girls. Somehow I always think I will only get 1 girl so I end up planting way more than I should. Observations over all the plants so far. Lots of deep sweet spice scent and some musk that lingers on your fingers. 9 to 11 finger elongated leaves are the norm with one of the girls having short but narrow leaves. Some variation exists in size but the seeds were not all started at the same time and there were a couple that were just smaller from the beginning. Tonight they will be heading for transplant and should be flipped after a week or two of breaking in their new shoes.

You shouldn't feel bad about f2 for personal use. This strain could be important. You never know. Where would the community be without those little stashes of magic? Just my .02. They sure are lovely and I'm sure their daughters would be too. I think i will be dropping by to check in on them. Good job, btw, can't wait to see what the axis brings to the mix.

Looking tasty and gorgeous.
Thanks man. Honestly these have been the healthiest plants in a while. PH has been a real problem here and tends to piss off the plants in my gardens more often than not. I need to run a couple more times with the recharge before I can honestly say but it might be helping to smooth things out. At this point I have not done any cal-mag addition or ph correction.

The girls are blowing up now. I added blumats a few weeks ago. I sometimes use them and sometimes don't as they can be a necessity but can be fickle to tune though! Also I have found it necessary to ph correct water again. found the jugs I bring down were pushing 8.5 and then 5 so I am stuck monitoring the ph for the rest of this grow. As you can see the two on the left are shorter and frostier. They all look and smell great but the one of the far left is a keeper.Axis - SSDD 8-20 (7).JPGAxis - SSDD 8-20 (10).JPGAxis - SSDD 8-20 (9).JPG

Keeping up with the girls and work has been interesting, and trying to update grow logs. Doh! Well out of 4 there is one which is done but isn't going to see harvest till the end of this weekend. I think the other 3 are pretty close behind. This puts them finishing 9 weeks or so since flower development. Kinda cool I waiting a little longer for the first girl to finish as she developed some purple over the last couple nights. Not a huge drop in temp, maybe 68 or so. All the sweet smell is gone now, its more chunky funky nose hair curling hash plant now.

Beautiful plants brother @hamneggs. Any notable scents coming out?

Thanks for sharing the experience!
Thanks a lot man. They were pretty easy to grow in comparison to a few I have run across. Well I thought I knew what was going in smell department but they seem to have pulled a switcharoo on me here in the end. Way more dirty sock, sweat and something in there that stinks like piss. When a few flowers get the rub down I still detect some sweet, berry there so maybe she will do a bit of both? I suppose I will know after a few weeks!
One thing for sure is a couple of the others grew some pretty good sized flowers and I can't wait to see what they finish like.

Hey fellas, thanks for the kind words. I have #6 and #5 dried, jarred. They took two/three weeks to dry, the longer the better. If I could I would let them hang dry in controlled humidity of about 58-60 for a month or so. Both of these phenotype's were roughly the same.

Report for #6
Grow Characteristic: Kept a centralized flower node structure. No topping or training was done. Stretch was minimal at maybe 25%. She supports herself mostly with just a couple branches needing help at the end. She had one fat center cola with the rest as medium sized flowers.

Smell: Started off a bit sweet on the back end with b.o. oil dominating the front. After a dry and a partial cure the smell of sweets is gone, its all oil and pungent funk now. Just a ever so light hint of artificial sweetener.

Effect: Smooth burning when twisted up but a big draw will give you the cough. High is functional. I had multiple sessions with her and each time I ended up wide awake and not getting put down. Further use didn't cause crash and burn either. This was some fun flower. Wild ideas and very carefree. A very mind altering head trip. A little bit of body but almost all head.

Report for #5
Growth Characteristic: Identical to #6 with medium width leaves and she grew with most growth centralized like a Christmas tree. No topping or training she needed minimal support. Stretch was low at around 25% of her original size. Her main cola was a good 10-12 inches with medium size flowers all the way around.

Smell: For the most part this was similar to #6 with the oil, hash, funk being the primary smell and a sweet sugar smell on the back. After dry and some time to settle down this one is balanced between the oily, b.o. and sugar cookie sweets.

Effect: Smooth but very much expando. Love this twisted up but taking too big a rip will get you coughing. Good functional pot that I can work game and clean with. Its not to say you aren't altered, as this really changes my head and its mostly in the head. In a bong you get to a new headspace quick. I haven't tried multiple sessions in a row yet but this feels much like #6 in effect which means it will take a while to overdo it.
