Hermies and Widows!

Just a quick post, i just had to get rid of 5 plants because they developed male and female parts. This might sound exciting for humans but for plants not so much.

There are a few things that can cause this like being pollenated, going into shock or the seeds have come from a hermie plant. Im thinking that its the seeds because i got them from some weed i bought a long time ago, which from memory wasnt the dank.

To prevent this happening again ive gone ahead and ordered myself some white widow seeds which should be arriving in a few weeks. Unfortunatley the feminised seeds were sold out so i had to get regular, but they were alot cheaper also. I plan on isolating all of the strong seedlings, eventually taking cuttings from them and forcing them into flowering so that i can see what gender their parent was. Then from there i will isolate 1 or 2 of the strongest females and then take all of my clones / cuttings from them. This gaurentee's strong, lucious and most importantly female plants!

New piece of equipment in the lab

Keeping up with the health and safety regulations i have upgraded the lab's smoking equipment.

I picked this cock sucker up for 2 sticks from my local tobacco shop. They have this great new law where bongs are no longer allowed to be displayed on the shelves so you have to ask the shop keeper for a catalog, at least our government is nipping the problem in the bud. Hah.
