Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Neutral

She has turned out beautifully. I couldn't be prouder to say that this is my own personal and unique strain. She smells exactly like Trainwreck with a hint of Kush in the background while looking exactly like her father. The next time I grow this girl I will be doing so for yields as this time she was just grown to test out how she handles stress and training as well looks when flowered for purposes other than breeding. While I did happen to pollinate her so I can continue her genetics from seed once again I did leave most of the buds un-pollinated to really give her a nice try. She smokes so smooth with a sweet flavor on the inhale with an earthy yet flavorful exhale. Her high is much like that of Trainwreck while having a bit more grit behind it like that of a more potent THC content.

Nutrients

As always Fox Farm nutrients knocked it out of the park. They always keep the soil extremely healthy will a balance of proper ratios of nutrients as well as keeping the micro biome in the soil healthy. After trying some other brands of nutrients I must say that I'm back to using Fox Farm again and will most likely stay using their nutrients as my main regiment for my plants.

Without a doubt the best source of calcium and magnesium on the marked. Iron too. I couldn't imagine using another supplement for my Cal-Mag-Iron needs.

I'm so happy to have finished the final round of breeding this beautiful girl. She is everything I hoped her to be and more. The next time I grow her I know exactly how she wants to be treated so that I can speed up her training and growth to do this exact same thing to her in less time. In a few weeks I'l be sprouting her seeds to do this all over again so I can proudly reap the rewards of my year long labor finalizing this strain. I'll breed the seeds together again one more time and then begin phenotype hunting the strain. I hope you guys and gals enjoyed my breeding of a brand new strain and wish me luck in continuing her lineage in the future. Cheers!

Since you've all commented here I thought I'd let you all know I harvested her if you hadn't yet seen. I successfully pollinated her and reaped a nice bounty of seeds. I was able to prevent a few of the buds from getting pollenated so I also got to try a few of the buds of my strain that weren't focusing on producing seeds. I'm sure the bud is of lesser quality because of the plant focusing on making seeds but I have to say it ended up pretty nicely.

The breeding is a Skywalker Kush X White Widow. I then took the best male from that lot and bred it with a female Trainwreck. I then back bred that cross with itself once and then planted the seeds here for the final breeding to stabilize the strain into it's third generation for phenotype hunting. I should be posting the diary for her geminated seeds in just a few days once they all root. I hope you all follow along for the phenotype hunt. Thanks for commenting and following along with me for this breeding documentation.

@DabCrab,

But it takes time...It can be that I will delay it a bit. Have you ever tried to breed an auto flower?

@Tistou, I'm excited for you. I hope I can get in another breeding before the summer starts myself.

@bigdaddyk we all know that @farmerbrett deserved to win this month no one can deny that he had the best grow buy far but after it was plastered everywhere and gd was told numerous time of the shenanigans going on they actually asked Brett what he wanted them to do and letโ€™s have it right Brettโ€™s not they type to say remove dab from the top and give me the gold cup heโ€™s to much of a nice guy it was really down to gd to have sorted it but no doubt they will have the issues fixed hopefully for next months competitions

@DabCrab, Yh was wrong but every one makes mistakes and I agree I do think at this moment in time with all the problem happening on this site it does need to be done publicly rather than the correct and civilised manner of pm because then you know you have shown every one you are trying to stop what is happening and you are no part of it I do think that every one needs to chill and get back to doing what everyone on this site clearly has a passion for and that growing some Dank

@MISS_TRYHARD, Yeah, I was pretty upset about that. @Bigpun and @Tryhard_grower didn't cheat that month. They made 100's of comments. Try even showed us all a video of him scrolling through his notifications to prove them were all from different people and that they were all real accounts. @Growdiaries made a grave mistake that time. I think we all learned from that. If we want to keep things honest we can't try to be quiet behind DM's. Publicly post it for all to know and let the community figure things out. The community knows what happened this month. I made sure of it.

I respect everyone first and foremost. Everyoneโ€™s interactions with each other are different whether itโ€™s positive or not. My interactions with DabCrab have been excellent. Heโ€™s offered me a lot of his knowledge without knowing me at all. DabCrab also put in some good work figuring on the cheaters which is commendable idc who you are and what your interactions have been with DabCrab. He renounced his prizes and asked for the likes to be taken away so to me that doesnโ€™t smell like a cheater. DabCrab thanks for all of that hard work you put in trying to cleanse this site it doesnโ€™t all go unnoticed. That being said I will not dislike other growers because of there interactions with others. I hope you two gentleman can work this out. Nothing but straight respect for both of you!

@TeflonDonFarms, I truly hope it never happens again. It ruins everything for the new people who deserve rewards for their accomplishments.

@DabCrab, Yes itโ€™s disheartening. For what itโ€™s worth I donโ€™t think you cheated. I think your a solid dude. Keep on doing what your doing and pay no mind then. Thatโ€™s what I would do. I appreciate that investigative work and Iโ€™m 100 percent positive this entire site is whether they admit it or not. Unfortunately not gonna be the last time this will happen.

@TeflonDonFarms, I know I did the right thing. I reported the fake accounts and I publicly stated I didn't want this and that it was in direct response to me publicly posting the activity of the fake accounts. I can even prove it with the timestamps of all the activity. Theres not much left I can really say.

As for BDK, I won't lie. I've been an ass to the guy. Not unprovoked... but that doesn't really matter. I've tried everything to burry the hatchet with the guy. He's just in it for the lols. He's a first rate needle prick. I've even privately advised him before on various issues such as measuring lighting and comparing products because I didn't want to publicly embarrass him or shame him because he was doing it all very incorrectly.... I genuinely have tried extending numerous olive branches and he wishes to have none of it. He thinks he knows best and that he is superior to all. He's a condescending person down to his core. At this point, despite all evidence to the contrary, he's trying to pin something on me that both the site admins and myself can and should publicly prove that am nothing more than a victim in due to my diligence in seeing something very suspicious take place while I was making my comment for the evening. It's pretty upsetting to me that all this is happening.

Sounds like that dude is a secret fan @DabCrab. I've noticed he's aimed hate/insults directly towards you numerous times.. you can rest assured knowing that by virtue of having a dedicated hater, you're doing something right! Lol not that you need any validation from the likes of that dude. Your flowers look amazing on pretty much every harvest! And doing a new strain is something I'd love to attempt once my lady and I buy our own home.. this process must have been time consuming but you nailed it on this one!! Enjoy your new strain smoke for me! :clap::clap::v:

@EdsterGrows, Thank you very much buddy. It's important that the people who follow me and like my stuff know I won't tolerate any accusations of me cheating. I've done everything I can to make sure that everything on this site is kept fair and just. I'm ashamed that someone as pathetic as this hater would try and spin this around on me after I've proved exactly who is responsible and publicly listen how this was all nonsense.

I must always crab on the haters.

Nice work hear dab should be nice knowing u created your own strain are u giving any of the seeds away by any chance lol

@MG2009, I will be and do occasionally, When selecting the best male I look for aroma as well as color on the pollen sacks. Some males even produce trichomes and throw purple and pinks. It just comes down to what traits I'm trying to compliment with a female. When breeding two of the same strain to stabilize it I look for the two that are the most similar in traits all around. When breeding a new strain I look for the most crazy looking male possible. The Skywalker Kush X White Widow male was insanely purple and stinky but only on the pollen sacks. I liked it and thought it'd make Trainwreck better. I think it might have ;)

MG2009

@DabCrab,are you also growing out males? Just curious. I like to grow them out to find good future studs. I'm curious what you look for in a good male?

@Tazard1, Exactly. Some people just don't understand basic logistics of scale. I grow small in a small space to utilize my area to it's best affect. Could I do better, sure. But at least I'm trying to better myself and others and not be arrogant. Cheers buddy. Much love Taz.

Peace and weed to you too @Tryhard_grower. Crab on them haters :pray:

@DabCrab, yields are dependent on canopy size for indoor. Who cares about 50g/Plant. If your canopy was say 12โ€ in diameter you got over 600g/m2.

@Bigpun, Shouldn't be long. Just have to situate some other plants. I'm gender testing some Berry Bomb and Cheese Bomb from @Bombseeds at the moment. I'm in the process of testing them out by popping a few seeds so I can pick a phenotype that I like from them and then make a mom out of the female of my choice so that I can start a diary for their products the proper way. Once thats out of the way and I start vegging two moms of my choice (One of each strain) then I'll have space to pop these new seeds. Should be just a few weeks. Hope you don't mind being patient ;)
