Thumbs up Little Bigger

Hi there HHHG

All the bugs worked out 10 feet under was a hastle but now is AWESOME!!!!!!

I feel in touch with the earth and all the security comforts needed to be undetected.

The current system is 1850 watts, using two water cooled radiators to keep my temperatures consistant 65 to 70 degrees 45 to 55 % humidity.

Thumbs up 18 seeds and only one Ortega female found 👨😏

This project has taken longer than I planned with selection process and found four keeper females and one Amazing Full blooded Ortega Male�� that stinks allot with sticky stems was kept,a very Awesome Male! Pictures soon.

1.) Ortega Female was almost lost at the beginning of grow do to full strength vinegar spilling directly on the rapid grow and freaked as this was the only pheno that truly resembles the Original Ortega plant I almost killed.

I flushed the 4 inch container immediately with one gallon of ph balanced water but still lost most of the leaves. I then removed the rapid rooter from the soil and flushed it with another gallon and hoped for the best to save her.

Well, I saved her and she is very close to being photographed for all to see as she is a beauty��.

2.) The numbered phenos I kept are 1,5,6.

#1 is the smelliest and what a stocky short Beauty to behold with very fast flowering didn't even consider this one but is very very special and very fast flowering girl so I keep.

#5 is a Massive fast cloning female who smells of berries so kept her to until I make a selection, Amazing female.��

#6 I believe is the fastest plant I have ever experienced and believe she is a finisher in either 6 to 7 weeks so I kept her ��

#1 smells GREATLY! Like none I have selected up till now with the Ortega phenos is a real stinker and Deadly to look at so I kept her.��
She clones like a dream and the buds are quick to form a massive short female.

Pictures eventually but not now.

That Massive Fat Ortega Male is amazing to look at,and his leaves are almost twice as big as my hand,from another world and the only one found in pack as the other males were lanky tall with not many side branches unlike this one who is a Beast��

These are keepers I will share soon.

Peace,
rb

Default Ortega female/male are seed plants.

The other females are clones only 1,5,6.

Alecky, Ortega roots were definitely pickled ��
But pulled through and very nice to have a fast finisher for sure for quickies.
Thanks for the interest in this thread I will do my best.

RATJACK- man cave not completely ready but working on completion soon but is operational and deep underground.

Those radiator coors work wonders in confined space especially 1850 watts of power has to be cooled immediately to work but stays optimal.

The one thing about small grow spaces is you must sterilize all soil before planting anything or you will have an infestation of bugs.

The air in my man cave is sealed from outside bugs that destroy fast.

No, I have never grown Ortega and is first time growing it and was very secret.

I am only sharing now as I have selected the keepers out of 18 and all for were the fastest and smelliest so made decision on selection using smell,vigour,looks,plus a few more things and they all met my standards so went by instinct.

I want a sleeper,medical,and sativa in my harem that clone easy and get the job done.

Ortega can't be chosen growing only a few beans do a full pack or two is a must if you want a great pheno as they all are not the same I assure you.

My #5 is a Massive bud machine with multiple branches many beds and the biggest stretcher but not much.

I only keep myself supplied so very few is all I need but man cave is secure.

More to come

Enjoy

Peace,
rb

man cave or man shed there all the same if you can have your cave all to yourself i know these old lady needs to have a peek from time to time but she's all mine nonetheless. mine is half underground (backside and side is completly underground) built into a hill that all i care to say about my man cave resinbud. if need be i can live there like a bomb shelter with food and water to survive if need be. Im just thankful to have such a getaway for pleasure and well if the world desides to loss it cool maybe to hide for a while until the nuts get things figured out. I will be growing ortega when the schedule allows me. there is so many and as you know patients is a factor in growing. i will have more ? when i think more on what i want out of that grow. I want as close as i can a NL my son use to have that the group had for 15 yrs they where outside in cornfields for many years and lost that cut, i tryed to bring it back for them but she was just spent and wore out to much abuse they forgot to take care of MOM. Sorry day that was after all these yrs i cant find the one after hundreds and hundreds of plants F1s but still trying RJ
