I will be chopping the Mimosa later today. The amber is coming on quickly. I will be waiting another week probably on the Mendo Cookies as they only have an amber here and there and Mrs Fogey wants the indica, heavy hitting stone...

First 4 pics are the Mimosa. Last 2 are Mendo Cookie. If they look hungry it is because I screwed up and stopped feeding a good week and a half before I should have...

Thx QB and 2RE. I have bud envy when I look at a lot of the bud porn on here. The biggest buds are maybe an inch and a half(that’s about 40 mm for you folks down under). Not that impressive but I am really happy about how dense these are. umbra suggested fulvic acid for denser buds. I tried some last grow and had better than my usual results but not like these. I used the fulvic acid from the get go. I also added another LED(a cheapo) that had some Crees in it. I am thinking the combo helped. Mrs Fogey says the house stinks. Oops...

I was successful pollinating 2 buds on my Mimosa plant. I got quite a number of Mimosa female x Mendo Cookie male cross seeds but like 5 of the Mim x Mim. Kind of a bummer. Would have preferred a bunch of the Mim x Mim seeds. Some of the other seeds are strangely shaped. Pics later...

WOW of, you nailed the mimosa, great job, she is beautiful. Genetics help, but you grew it... Wonderful work!

Thx Rose. Mrs Fogey and I smoked some of the lower bud that I pulled the seeds out of last night. It is a lot more mellow/relaxing than I thought it would be and we like that quite a bit. She smoked some indica strain with some co-workers at a weekend retreat that she really liked because of how relaxing it was. We even bought some indica at a local dispensary but it wasn’t the same. The Mimosa is relaxing but doesn’t knock you out. Great stuff. Still waiting for my Mendo Cookie plants to get some amber. Weird because the literature says the breeder was trying to get a quicker finishing flower but these are pretty slow. Coming up on 10 weeks since I flipped the lights.

I pulled the buds I pollinated off of the Mendo Cookie plants. The Mendo male is quite the stud. I have between the Mimosa girl and the 2 Mendo girls around 100 Mendo x Mendo seeds but I only got 5 Mimosa x Mimosa seeds and maybe 15 Mendo x Mimosa seeds. The Mendo seeds are really dark and large too.
