A week later and they are all looking good. Watered them once. So far, some of the Sky Wardens have more lower branch development. Two in the back are noticeably shorter than the rest. I would normally put them out already but I need to clear some space outside. Got a nice clone(not GPS) that we are soon harvesting and I wanted to make some seeds with because it has been around a while and is somewhat susceptible to the 2spotted mites and leaf spot. Most likely these will be kept in vegetative state for another week before I put them outside.
So far the Wardens have been doing great! Put the guarantee ladies out in the greenhouse and the males out in the bush. They all went out about a week ago except for one, which went out last weekend(thought it was a male). So far 3/9 seeds are female 🙂 a 4th one is very promising but I didn’t want to call it until I see the pistol hair. The late sprouting Warden hasn’t shown sex yet but I am already stoked with the 3. Looking forward to seeing how the flowering goes
So out of the 9 Wardens, 4 are female. The smaller one that sprouted late ended up being female!
Initially my count was 5 but one of the taller ones threw a couple of nanners. I saw one that had a hair growing out of it and nanner undetneath. I was going to wait it out but my wife saw another so we culled em. Sorry my camera wasn’t good enough to focus on nanner to get any clear pics :/
The remaining 4 males were grown in another plot to confirm 100% on sex and possibly collect pollen. One of those males had female hairs so I culled it.
All in all I’m super stoked to get some nice looking females Wardens! I will follow up with more pics soon
Update on the 4 Wardens. All are looking great! To me they appear to have a lot of side branching. The flower structures on them look like the are forming densely. They are resilient so far to the botyris, PM , and leaf septoria that is everywhere here. I’m not seeing much mite damage either (compared to some other strains). So far so good!
The large one on the table fell over one night 🙁 is why it looks a bit funny
