Desert Rose

Hello and welcome to the log for Desert Rose.

Let’s dive right in..

Currently running two rooms with two tents in each for dual-perpetuals. Room one houses the clones, keepers, and new fem seeds while room two hunts all reg seeds whose keepers and clones move to room one.

The primary goal of room two is cycling as fast as possible and identifying the high potentials to flower and be cloned. Runs start with between 18 to 30 seeds and are narrowed down to 4-8 fems to flower and up to two of the nicest males to keep for collecting from.

The primary goal of room one is to collect a wide variety of strong and/or unique structures, terp profiles, potency, effects, and beauty. At any given time room one can flower 16 plants and hold another 16-25 clones/keepers depending on size.

Here is the setup..

Room 1:
Flower:
4.5x4.5 Summit Grow Labs Tent
CaliLightWorks SS1100UVB and Controller
Veg:
3x3 Gorilla Grow Tent
Homemade Vero29 Cobs, 120-360W

Room 2:
Flower:
2x4 Mars Hydro Tent
Homemade HLG V1 Boards, 120-240W
Veg:
2x4 Mars Hydro Tent
Mars Hydro SP250

Hoping to get a tiny CaliLightWorks SS275 to replace the homemade Cobs and have full spectrum control and the same lights for the entirety of their lives. The boards are perfect in the 2x4 for shorter stretching plants but underwhelming with stretchier runs. Ideally would like to try rearranging the Cobs for a run in the 2x4 for a leggier run.

Running GH Flora Trio with CalMag, Diamond Nectar, Liquid and Dry Koolbloom at 5.9pH in coco and fabric pots to flower. Square plastic pots are used for clones and veg. The most recent 2x4 flower run was done with Gaia Green organics in half promix half coco. Some nice differences were spotted but overall could’ve been done much better. For now the GH Flora regime will be run, though Gaia will be revisited soon.

Photos and strain details will be up shortly!

Thank you for stopping in. If you have any tips, questions, or comments please feel free to post. Hope to see you all around!

Dropping between Christmas and New Years are 25-30 Banana Breads from @Frimpong

These were run in the past and turned out to be one of the best smokes and grows in the house! A powerful banana cake funk with a very feel good effect. You will find yourself vibing around in a very chill and euphoric state.

From this run we hope to find all phenos, select the top 3-5 females, select the top stud, and open pollinate the kept females. Beans from the separate phenos will be kept separate on harvest and all thoroughly tested to determine the best f2 variant with the effects stated above and the beauty shown below.

Banana Bread - Banana Cake (In-House Genetics, female) x Lambsbread (DMan Seeds, male)

Coming 2021!
 
A while back @Frimpong hooked it up with his final two Crumpets seeds from Cookie Fam and both turned out extraordinary! Couldn’t be happier as we ended up with one male and one female.

There are a few shots of the male whose pollen was stored and also sent back to Frim for crosses but they aren’t overly exciting. The male was a 3 Kings OG leaner with amazing structure, symmetry and strong kush smells.

The female was a very London Pound Cake leaner who started slow in flower but turned completely dark purple and covered itself in frost by the end of her flowering period of 60 days. She smelled very strong like a dank black licorice and has a very unique flavour. The effect is uplifting, long lasting, and very pleasant! She is currently kept as a clone in veg and also on day 49 of flower in room one.

One of my personal favourites and top keepers, Angel Cake Cut from In-House Genetics. These were freebies and two were popped. Both were fems and one was kept.

This girl shattered the yield record per area she took up. It wasn’t even close. One of the most satisfying grows to date. She showed vigour, she had a perfect medium stretch, and had some of the nicest finished buds with big swollen calyxes. The smoke is very heavy with a mild cake/cookie taste and fruity/floral terps. The effect is immediate and relaxing and seems to almost creep into a more powerful effect over the first 20 minutes. You can sleep on it well but does not force you to want to sleep. Very floaty feeling, limbs were light. Stacks on itself well but once you let it go the burnout will put you down like few others..

Um yeah, I think I will be hanging around here for the eye candy. Beautiful flowers. Your skills are quite obvious. Thank you for sharing your exploits, and may i say DAMN THE GIRLS ARE FROSSSTY!!!!!
Thank you so much for the kind words Enigma! I definitely have a tendency to keep girls with colour potential haha I really like a pretty garden! Really appreciate it mate, will try to keep the fire flowing here!
 
A while back Frim hit his female Sweet Bread from Cannarado with some of his Mac pollen. Only a handful of seeds resulted and this girl happens to be the last one in existence. Thankfully she cloned without a hitch and should be good take cuts off shortly. Really hoping the smoke is similar to the one From grew out as he said it was one of his favourite smokes to date!

She’s a gorgeous almost abnormally white and frosty plant who had a medium-large stretch and has been adding steady bulk since week four. Smells so far are light but sweet and slightly cookie.

She was my best smoke and looks like it's could be even better ! Well done 👍
 
Everything looks amazing! Good luck with your projects. I’ll be following for sure. Frim blessed me with a few Banana Bread. I popped 4 and have 4 girls. They will hit flower soon.
Yesss Frim told me a couple others were running them. So glad to hear it! I will check your journal out for them. Thanks so much for Kasiz! I’ll be seeing you around
