Good thread fogey. You haven't mentioned your spider might problem are they gone. I was wondering because spinosad isn't the most effective product to use on spider mites. Great on thrips and white flies but not mites. Anyway just wondering.
I just sprayed them today. I will update in a day or so. The Freaks don’t appear to be infected but the leaves are so weird looking that they could be. I had a grow one year where the mites only affected one strain. I think it was Mendo Cookies and the Mimosa plants were not infected. Brix level maybe? The plants I have that have mites are kind of a goof. I think there are 5 plants in one 1 gallon pot. I intended them to be a houseplant but they are flowering so I will let them do their thing. They are not ‘healthy’. I haven’t been feeding them much(since they were going to be houseplants kind of like our president). I may try blasting them with molasses as a foliar feed. I have read that insects can’t digest sugars so if the spinosad doesn’t help, I will kill ‘em with sweetness… ;)

Oh yea they were mature tiger striped seeds but...... How'd you get 6 seedlings off of just 4 seeds???? That's nuts if it's not a mistype or something. I've never had anything like that happen to me before, I've never heard of anything like that happening either craziness
Not a mistype. I planted 4 seeds. I got 6 plants. The weird thing was the 2nd seedling from each twin popped up a couple of inches from the first seedling. I am positive I did not plant 6 seeds. I have seen threads from people who have twin zygotes. It happens. I will have to look back sometime to see if I can ID which plants were twins. I may have lost the traceability. I am a scatterbrain. I look forward to seeing your results. You grow some nice plants. I am a hack.

I had nothing to do with the twins other than introducing the mother and father to one another. The genetics are not mine but I am certain the genetics are good. Both plants were clones selected by a woman who is an expert in this field. My brother is growing done different crosses from the male and his buds look very pretty. Again, I just put the seeds in the soil and got twins(twice in 4 seeds).

Whooops! I am buzzed! Over and out!

Yea spread the love and genetics around I still can't believe that seeds are still selling for 10+ $ a piece still like they were a decade ago when I ordered my first couple pack and spent 300 bucks on some seeds smh

The AN pH Perfect nutes I am trying have greened up the Freaks big time in a couple of days time. I have always been a bit jealous of people with dark green, shiny leaves. It likely is the combination of the AN and the fresh Roots Organics soil. I hope I didn’t over feed them. No tip burn though.

Starting to see what I think is indication of a male. It looks similar to @SubmarineGirl ‘a flowering Freak. I see some ‘hairs’ on this plant but I am thinking now that they are ‘stellate’ hairs(had to look that one up). The pic is the best I could get(my shaky Parkinsonism Disease hands suck). Looking at it in real life though, I see what looks to be some ‘balls’. Males usually flower first so I am pretty sure I have one male and 2 females at this point. Pretty sure @Kindbud called the shot early on based on the tall growth…

If it is a male, I will be collecting pollen from it as well as letting him ‘jizz’ all over the girls. I want some bud but I also want seeds…

Looking over the Freaks this morning, I am certain I have 2 females and one male(props to @Kindbud for calling the shot early on). I see some pistils on 2 and the other is stacking on balls. They certainly do not look like any flowers I have had before but the difference is striking. I will get some pics when they dry out.

Word word I would have bet money on that guess too. I've always found that 95% of the time the taller stretched out sativa's are always males. But sweet rock on gonna have plenty of those freak show seeds come harvest time 😎
