Aloha fellow Firewalkers!
This morning brings us to week 5 and a room full of pregnant girls. I can’t wait to try out the seeds from this latest cross of Neville’s females to Doors males, not to mention smoking the smoke. The thought of combining the F2’s with a Holy Grail male coming from an upcoming HG grow has got me salivating. As of today, I have discarded the current males because I have not an inch of space left. It’s a shame that my greenhouse isn’t set up yet as I could use the extra room for male storage. The greenhouse will be ready next season, that’s for sure, as I am unwilling to let this great hobby be compromised due to lack of space. For now, let’s get to the plants.
Starting with the Doors archetypes i.e N4xD14, I think @blowingupjake is correct in his observation; overall, there does appear to be more bud sites with this cross. In addition, the tops are less dome shaped, showing perhaps some of the Neville’s influence. The Neville’s #4 mom was a less tall plant with a chunkier apical cola. Morphologically, there seems to be more Doors influence here, exhibiting the same height as their parents with minimal side branching. We’ve talked about this before re: a plant that can be crowded in an ID situation. If I get the citrusy potency that the Nev’s #4 mom had in this Doors package, it will be ideal for indoor grow. I did get some shorter plants within this group and they will be eliminated as the yield to time ratio needs to be considered.

The N6 x D6 plants on the other hand appear to have more of the Neville’s characteristics i.e. longer internodes and longer side branching, while still retaining dome tops and long pistils characteristic of The Doors.

Another N6 plant mated to a D14 dad was the one Doors variant I noticed in the first Doors grow. More sativa-like with slightly longer node spacing and skinnier linear leaves, if she brings the bigger buds that mom had, she will be kept.

Lastly is the N7 prodigy from the N7xD14 mating. Like their mother, they are the most sativa-like; taller plants, longer fingers and less dense buds, though more bud sites. They certainly are not lacking in resin and seem to be packing it on early.

I wanted this cross to accomplish the following: 1) more manageable plants for indoor growing, i.e 4-5 ft plants with minimal side branching, 2) larger, more plentiful bud sites, 3) resin production, 4) potency, smell, and taste, coming from the Haze AC genetics. Looks like I am off to a good start braddahs.
