very difficult to conually resize, more maybe later
havent tried ak but i like nl. how many did u plant? i like trying out old crosses especially when you have forgotten how the parents were, its a good surprise.
my own crosses were always alot different compared to the original strains, better i dont know but different.

Actually this cross has consistantly put out a narcotic stone,still rates in mytop 5, I think what I have to do before I smoke it at 6 yr old seeds, I want to make some 2006 seeds f2 ? to further keep the seeds fresh,
my own most potent cross is ww mother X mothers finest father, not really a good high but (to paranoid well its a good high but not as an everyday smoke that is) very very potent. its a good idea to make new seed after a couple of years, i store my seeds in the freezer so the should be good for atleast 10 years. dont forget to let the seeds dry out for a month before putting them in the freezer tho.
me personally i dont seek stable plants i prefer to save the best male (biggest, thickest stem, most/best smell) and pollinate 3 or 4 females. i only pollinate one branch of each plant, i pollinate late (and let them go until the seeds are well done only that branch tho) otherwise the plants will think its mission acomplished early and not produce as much bud. then i label the seeds and smoke the weed, and make some notes, i dont throw any seeds but i make sure i know which seeds came from the best specimens. i save all the seeds not to bottleneck the genetics for future generations (human generations that is)

This run, we want to multiple polenate, out of 6 I hoping for more then one male, let it be a free for all in cabinet, Ive stored my seeds in film containers with a silica bag in it, 6 years 100% germ, lost one to vertigo, root grew up

tj when i saw this cross i said hey that sounds good a classic with a new gen. good to hear your only getting two pheno's. tell me the do the high's deffer from each pheno? also what's with the dirt does it carry any slow release? if so don't buy it any more. those are slow release pellets are bad. stay safe, bravo

Hey Bravo, Over the years just two promary phenos have shown........this soil has no ferts in it, its miracle grows New organic soil, no nutes in it

sounds promissing how is it with retaining water? i'm sure the ph in the soil is good looking at the plants. i'm sure i seen that soil i thought that went for 5 bucks guess not. what's that like a 2.2 cubic bag?

Hey gang, thanks for looking in, we are at 21 days from germ, been under flouro's 2 x 15 watt, just brought them out for there first taste of real sun....they will go back under floros at sunset, no pics, wife and teens on holiday with camera....All leaf shapes are the same, each plant is a different size, the one with the yellow leaf, is on 4th node and is the fastest grower, the nodes are tight, they will stretch once back under floros
Here is the Miricle grow organic potting soil they are in:
50-55% Composted bark
Canadian Sphagum Peat moss
Pasturized Poultry Litter
Organic wetting agent
.097% Nitrogen from poultry litter
They are quite beautiful without any ferts up to this point.
I never had 3 week old plants reek this early, interesting very strong odor as I walked up to box

High TJ, that is a sweet looking AK47. You know I just love Joey's work and have grown most of his varietals. His AK47/C99 was very up and sweet smelling. I wish I had time and space to grow out more of his work, but you know the numbers game here in Cali.
I vegged in MiracleGrow for years! Never had a problem with it as long as it was not used as the final transplant before the 12/12 flip. The plants pretty well used up all the nitrates by the time of the flip. I am trying out the BlackGold as my local hydro store manager uses it exclusively now.

Hey mari, thanks for popping in, the AK was was a beauty "memorable, as my friends say, lol, tasted like cardboard, but a slap u in the face high.
yea I was looking on net for Joey's gear.....I love his gear as well. I would like to pick up some more of his Northern Lights, I only have 3 seeds from my 2001 vintage left.
The 4 remaining plants were fed for first time at 36 days, repotted and pinched.

42 day update from germ..........looks like 3 of 4 are starting to sprout balls under 24 hour light, usually males autoflowered by 8 weeks veg, never this early, never three this early, hoping 4th is a female!!!!!
The mother above grew with 6 hours direct sun a day and finished in North East
Beautiful plants you've got there tj_142, keep em coming :)
Ps: I use Irfanview to resize my pics, its free and its easy to use ;)
