Here's some shots taken today of my cabinets canopy. The cabinet is 46.25 x 18 x 72. It's lit by a 400 hps and vented thru a diy carbon filter.
In here are 18 blowfish f2's and blowfish crosses and 1 trainwreck s1. They are planted 2 per pot (2 gal) were double potted about week 2 of flower and have been fed organically throughout. About half are at day 50 while the other half is at day 43.

Great looking plants, I love all the tops. This is a great treat! We haven't had an awesome shot of knuckled leaves like yours anytime recently.

Quagmire- awesome shots! If the blowfish f2s are even 1/2 as good as the f1s you are in for a treat! Blowfish is one of my faves. So potent and such a happy buzz! What did you cross Blowfish with?

Thanks for the kind word folks.
Quixotic- Here's the Dutch Flowers original description:
BLOWFISH (G13 / Blue Dot / Oregon Funk) F1
Named after the deadly Japanese delicatessen, this breeding project began when we set out to improve taste and yield —two weak traits of the G-13— by using Oregon Funk as a pollen donor. The results were quite pleasing but the smoke test revealed that G-13's power had been downgraded somewhat. Then it was the turn of a very impressive Blue Dot hybrid stud, which qualified the G-13 with great taste and no harm to its potency, although this time yield was less than desired. Finally, we applied heavy selection to each of these two G-based lines, and crossed them giving rise to Blowfish, a winning combination of G-13's deadly punch and the quality and taste of the Funk and Dot lines.
Blowfish exhibits great F1 vigor and disease resistance in a well-behaved plant that avoids the undesirable traits of "blue" genetics (difficult to grow, brittle, leafy, poor calyx to leaf ratio) while maintaining the flavor of the Funk and Dot ancestors and the brain-warping power of the G-13. A prolific flower producer even under poor conditions (it actually prefers low nutrient levels), this low-maintenance strain bears wonderfully dense buds, with a thick coating of milky crystals that will rival the best of the "white" strains in both crystal coverage and brain-thumping quality, with much better flavor and yield. We are proud to offer a hybrid carrying no White Widow, Northern Lights, Skunk or Blueberry in its composition.
Parental selection focused on potency and yield, as taste and resin genes were already well fixed on the Funk and Dot lines. Outstanding ancestors infuse the plant with a high quality feel, evident in the glossy leaves, harmonious phenotype and the particularly frosted, heavy and aromatic buds. Blowfish tends to branch out while adding girth to flowering clusters, forming sizeable snowy colas for excellent yield. Despite the remarkable density of its bud structure, mold and mites have not been a problem. This fish likes plenty of water as well as appropriate root and growing space, but prefers low levels of nutrients to fully express its potential. Very well-suited for bubbler systems and SCROG styles.
Blowfish retained the breathless intensity of G-13, with much better yield and a unique taste of berries and motor grease with fuel undertones that will appeal to pot-snobs. The experienced puffer will recognize a rotten animal scent lurking in the background of this Puffer, a sign of the abiding sativa influence that was a common denominator in parental stock selection. Its buds smoke very smooth and clean, with a great berry taste and a hashy feel that relates to its impressive crystal coverage.
Known as Fugu in Japan, Blowfish flowers live up to its namesake as a lethal delicacy with a body-paralyzing yet heady cerebral effect that defies traditional "Indica" and "Sativa" classification. The plant's elegance stands in sharp contrast with the muscle and intensity of its buds, which stun the body but thrust the mind into a euphoric trippy experience with excellent visuals and duration. It does not seem to build tolerance with experienced smokers, maintaining its knock-out quality over repeated use.
Med User420- The f2's and the crosses all came from the TLB's. I was lucky enough to get seeds from all the Blowfish mom's 1, 2, 3 (s1), 4 and 5. The blowfish male used "reverse hermied" and became a full blown female. This female was then self pollinated creating the S1's.
The crosses are AG13(s1) x Blowfish and BWG13 x Blowfish. These were named Muggles and Black Talon by the TLB's. The AG13(s1) x Blowfish is a backcross of sorts as Airbournes G13 was used in Blowfish.
