Sorry for flooding the forum!

 

Noc'd multiple rye jars w/ multiple vendor MSS on 3/2, 2 jars were GT were mixed w/ sterilized CCM, verm, coir hydrated lime sub into 2 6Q shoebox tubs.  They took 4 weeks to colonize and were cased w/ 50/50+ and these were set to FC on 4/10.

 

Here they are today:

I've been told these are a good strain to learn on, I can see why, very low maintenance fast developers.

GTs are a good strain, little chance of a bad trip, at least that's something I've heard, I never had a bad trip from any of my strains, my GT were really good, your tubs look great, nice job.

Great job on your first prints doc. You obviously grabbed those caps at the perfect time for maximum sporulation,and your print box may be just right for them to breathe a bit.
Well done my friend .

Nice looking prints, you never have to buy that variety of cube again. Eventually try cloning with a certain size/shape/color tint/etc in mind onto agar, then grow that out, select similar fruits and take prints again. Grow the prints out and select a clone again and keep repeating that process, from spore to clone to spore, keeping the selections all similar to the original traits you selected for, and eventually you would be able to get a stable producing strain with the unique genetics you were after from spores. That takes a lot of cycles because when cubes produce spores, the genetics kind of "reset", but after so many generations of selecting similar fruits for clones/prints, the genetics of the spores get narrowed down, then you have a new "strain". I have no idea how many cycles/generations it takes to get to that point, but that seems like the ultimate goal for the hobby of cube growing, for me anyways.

Thanks for the break down Billcoz.

2nd/final flush on the first tub, larger fruits, less production than the first go. 

 

I left this one in the gh, but took the other to dubtub and it's outperforming. 

 

I will post pics of the other after harvest tomorrow.

GT are freaky fast producers.

Here's the 2nd tub, 2nd/final flush.  As mentioned I pulled this tub from the GH for the last flush and went dubtub. 

 

Markedly different results.

I'm no longer posting weight pics, means nothing to me and don't see how it adds value to this community.

 

End of log.

End of log.

You know, I get my biggest fruits from 3rd and 4th flushes. usually they are single fruits/not in clusters, there are not that many but they get bigger than the first couple flushes. I don't generally keep them past 3 nowadays since I like to spawn new ones often. I also get your whole thing about not posting weights, I don't even weigh em anymore, it's pointless for me.

I appreciate your feedback on this as I have had a helluva time getting past 1st flushes in my short time at this.  I've figured out my mistakes and happy to be getting better results.  I'm stopping @ 2 b/c like you I am liking the process more than the product at this point.  I also appreciate sharing your experience on what to expect w/ later flushes.  I just harvested a second tub of the PE I'm growing and the flush was not as proliferate, only a couple clusters, but the fruits are massive.  I'll post some pics of that in a few, cheers Billcoz.
