a Neville's Haze development question

my fav untested Neville's Haze girl so far.
11 weeks from seed.
vegging in clone mum/babushka mode, waiting for clones to be
taken later this month for flowering in Oct.




she's the stretchiest and side-branchiest. stems are thin but kinda
strong, hard, stiff and woody. aromas are light, slightly woody/lemony.
and she's the lightest green of the eight NHs going, and bears the
closest resemblance to the greenhazexthais (ace seeds) i've grown.

interesting- she was first to show sex (by far), even quickly adding pistils
to her pre-flowers, but one of the slowest to move into alternating phyllotaxy-
seen in the two stems rising above the topping.
any thoughts on this fast-to-female, slow-to-develop characteristic?
i was hoping the mr. nice crew could shed some light.

i'll mix the pollen from the NH males to hit the females.
but i've got another male i also want to use...

background
i hit this cedar incense and wine barrel-aroma'd pheno (AKA suede) of a JohnnyBlaze F2 bonsai...
(J.B. is a (Neville's Haze x BlueberrySativa B130) cross from DJShort & Co.)

...with GreenHazexThai F3 (ace seeds) pollen late last/earlier this year.

the offspring from that JBF2 x GHTF3 cross is on the right (10 weeks veg from seed)...

...and smells strongly of lemon rind (i.e, unsweet, slightly bitter),
even in veg, and a bit of cedar wood- mmmmmm... soooo more-ish.

looks like it's going to be a male, so i've got a bonsai clone (above, left)
from my keeper GHxTF3 mum for hitting with pollen-
creating GHxTF3 x (JBF2 x GHxTF3), but using two different GHxTF3s.
should be a nice quasi-backcross.

the neville's haze will also get hit with this male.

cheers

finally got around to seriously flowering
our girl in the top pics of this thread out-
the lightest green, lemony one, at one week of 11n/13d light schedule...


more later.
cheers

Truly beautiful pictures.
The red purple stems seem to come up quite a bit with NH and are a very pretty feature.
The aromas that you describe sound exquisite I can almost smell them.
Have you sampled any of the parental plants that you are using? How is their flavour/effect?
I look forward to seeing where the search takes you. I have a feeling it will be where few others have been.
I will be watching
Respect pjj

I've grown about 30 NH outdoors. Have to admit they look totally different indoors and can't imagine doing a NH indoor... they take forever to finish if at all.

Early to flower means nothing. They can just sit there like that while three weeks later another NH starts flowering and finishes before the first. What to really look for is early flowering with early resin. That seems to be the magic thing with haze plants. Plants can flower for ages ... like weeks... and still show very little THC. Those little crystals that look like snow. The earlier they start showing up in the flowering cycle then the more potent the plant on average.

It's extra difficult to pick phenos with NH because it can just sit there doing nothing hardly for weeks then pack on the resin right at the very end. I always wondered what the term "very technical to grow" actually meant until I grew NH.

In summary... it's worth the effort if you can get a good one. The potency is superb. They can finish a full month apart at least though. At my latitude I've had two finish by end of April but most run into June till they get killed by cold about two weeks in and never finish. I've had one start flowering in Feb but usually beginning of April.... so huge variation.

Very odd plant to grow. Outdoors NH is usually the slowest runtiest plants until night temps pick up and NH starts flowering. Then it stretches and usually ends up tallest of MNS plants. Very odd compared to my tropical Thais which just go for it from day one.
