Cannabis Strain Information: Cherry Bomb

Both of my seeds came up, and are looking lovely. So, I figured I would give you some basic info on the strain. I was looking for something sweet and great tasting for some variety, and I decided that the Cherry Bomb from Bomb Seeds is the way to go. Cherry Bomb is a Indica-dominant Hybrid, developed by Bomb Seeds by crossing they’re monster yielding Big Bomb with a unique and fruity Cherry variety. Because it is an Indica dominant, the plants grow short and bushy, and stay at a low to medium height, which is just perfect for my small space. The THC content is extremely high around 25%. I am not sure what the CBD content is exactly. The yield is also high. It can be grown indoor or outdoor. Indoors it will take 8 to 10 weeks to flower. Outdoor the harvest comes in late September early October. Because of its Indica genes, the effect is couch locking and relaxing, very sedating.

Flushing my Blue Dream

Exciting exciting times. I am less than two weeks away from the target harvest date, so I started flushing my plants. Both of the Blue Dreams (pictured above), and the two White Widows behind them are getting ready to be harvested. I cut out all the nutrients, and for the last 2 weeks of the flowering time. I will only be watering them. The purpose of this flush is to wash out any excess nutrients and chemicals from the soil and the plants. Proper flushing insures that my flowers will not have any chemical or nutrient residue, and therefore will not have any weird taste. A properly flushed plant will produce the cleanest, most pure form of marijuana. When flushing your plants, especially the ones growing in soil, make sure to give them plenty of water, to have some runoff.

New strains planted: Blue God and Cherry Bomb

Okay okay folks, trying to bring a little variety to my stoner life. Just planted two brand new strains. The first one is the “Blue God” from Jordan of the Islands (Vancouver based breeder). The second one is a feminized version of the “Cherry Bomb”, from Bomb Seeds. Both are Indica dominant hybrids. I have to stick with the indicas because I am very limited on space, and I have to keep my plants short and bushy. Both strains boast a high THC content, and should be heavy yielders. I am particularly excited about this Cherry Bomb.

Monday, January 7th, 2019 – Day 1 of flowering for “Blue Dream” and “White Widow”.

The Topps all turned up towards the light, and they’re looking very healthy.

Flipping to Flower Mode

My girls are over growing the vegetative section of my tent, so I am flipping them to flowering mode. I have two White Widows and two Blue Dreams going into the flowering today. Today is day zero, stay tuned for more updates.

Operation Clones is a Go

“Blue Dream” clone is rooting in the new pot

Great news! The Clones that I took a couple of weeks ago are now routing in their new pots. They are doing great. I am starting to notice a lot of new growth at the top. I was a little worried in the beginning, that the Clones would not come up as fast, because they were cut from the plant that was in the late stages of flowering. And yes, they did take a little bit of extra time to acclimate. But they are sprouting new growth, and I am very proud. This time around, I do have a 100% success rate with the cloning procedure. The EZ-cloner was money well spent.

Cannabis Grow Journal: “White Widow” – day 71

“Quebec Purple Bud” after harvest

It it is the 71 of flowering for “White Widow”, “QPB” and the “Channel”. The big news, the qpb was harvested. I decided to cut her down a little bit early, because the leaves were yellowing and she looked like she was ready. I have been flushing her for over a week, so she should be good to go.

Thethe “White Widow” and the “Channel” are now being flushed. They should be ready to go in about a week or so.

Starting the Cloning Process

Cloning Process Started

The time has come to clone some of my girls. I went ahead and took 3 clones of the White Widow, 3 clones of the Blue Dream and 3 clones of Channel. Those are the three strains that I’m going to keep. I am not keeping the Quebec Purple Bud, because I don’t really like the way it’s growing. I don’t like the fact that it’s really finicky and it is very temperamental. I decided to keep the Channel because I like the smell. And I’m keeping the White Widow because that’s the most medically acceptable strain. And the Blue Dream, that’s just the best tasting but I’ve ever had. So I’m definitely going to keep some of those genetics.

I was a bit worried that I am taking clones of the plans that are already way late in the flowering cycle. But I read online that you can clone from any point of the growth cycle and a flowering cycle, so I will test that theory. As you can see from the photo, the white widows. Those are the Clones that are way way far away from you, they actually have very decent sized buds on him already. Hopefully they will not take any extra time to re-veg.

Best Yield Up To Date: “Channel” Clone #1
