View Full Version : More boys :(
04-01-2009, 09:52 PM
I was hoping to be the first to post the G&S report here as well, but things do not appear to be working out that way. I started (3) of (5) feminized SKUNK NL seeds on Feb.16 - think I just saw some balls on them - is there ANYWAY TO CONVINCE THEM TO PLAY FOR THE OTHER TEAM???
Sounds familiar - I know - seems to be an epidemic in my garden!! However, I also have 30 Brainstorm and 12 Hog which are well into flower and will be the saving grace for my medicine chest.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated - will keep you posted.

Hey RobinL are you sure that you haven't stressed the plants in any way? Feminized plants are more sensitive to stress.
Take Care and Peace

Hi Marco; Thanks for your speedy response friend. Its confirmed - there are balls :(
I would have to say that these seeds were probably some of the best tended - unstressed babies you'd ever have. I just don't understand it. That's the thing about this field of work eh? Nothing is 100% guaranteed. The nutes were same as our previous crops, which we have had great continued success with. We also have some Brainstorm and Hog going on a second table and they are thriving - all from clone however. Its good to have back up for sure. I would luv to stick with clones but really need to find some more suitable to my med requirements. Just have to keep trying I guess. Thank Marco.

Growing from clone is totally different then growing from seed that's for sure. Any kind of stress can cause feminized plants to grow male flowers not just from nutes. Well I know that we are starting all of FMS strains in the TY garden so I will see what happens in our garden. I know 2 TY members who are licenced growers who have grown out a few of the FMS strains with no issues so maybe they can let you know what the nute formula was. I do know that 1 of them did find a male flower on 1 plant but the rest were fine. The breeders have stated that 1 in 1000 can produce a male flower but to get males on all of the plants indicates a stress issue to me.
Take Care and Peace

Thanks again Marco - I really appreciate your help and the help of the other TY members who have first hand experience - We have (2) licensed tables going and appreciate any expert advice we can get our brains around. :)

Hey Marco - a quick update on this situation - only 1 confirmed male so far - from the Skunk NL - sorry for the delayed update - been a constant migraine battle lately and my laptop seems to aggravate my chances of getting one so I am trying to minimalize. The Amnesia Haze is still going strong but yet to differentiate itself as male or female - looking very healthy otherwise. Will keep everyone posted. I am still compiling data for the G&S reports. Can't wait to contribute to our vast database. Appreciate everyones imput and advice.
