I was originally learning toward the NL5 X Afghan, but I saw mixed reviews on it while the report on Devil was more stable. The only other benefit I saw of Devil was that it matures quicker. I would like to do an outdoor run (as well as indoors), so the earlier harvest is beneficial because it can get wet here after mid October. Anything I can harvest before then is always fine. Of course you will find all kinds of mixed reviews here on the internet that can be misleading. Could you describe what made the NL5 X Afghan so much more impressive for you and how Devil compared.Hi,
I have run both w/i last year or so and I strongly urge you in the NL5xAf direction.
I don't listen to complaints any more like sopousedly herm prone bull shit. if I see one or two guys do great with a strain then its obviously not gonna be too bad. it just seems like some people do a horrible job growing then they blame the breeder. thats the way I see it anyway plus it would be damn near impossible to find a strain that nobodies ever complained about.First unlike the Prof I've done neither I do recall afgan x NL5 having some complaints or troubles not that long ago, reported on the board
I still like to consider the the Hermie complaints. I have two main strains that I have grown for 5 years. One is of Mexican origins and the other is said to have come from some G-13 line. The Mexican strain will have several hermies no matter what I do. It doesn't matter what the conditions are. It will hermie inside under perfect conditions, inside under awful conditions, and outdoors at about the same rate. When I have stressed this strain it doesn't even to produce more hermies, 1 of about 10 females always go hermie. That being said, I will not throw this strain out because a couple go hermie every now and then. It is a wonderful plant. The G-13 strain has not produced a single hermie the entire time I have grown it. I have grown it right beside the Mexican strain every time and been through about 15 runs. It has never hermied. In my case I consider a hermie plant a genetic problem because I see it happen in some lines and not others under the same conditions. I figure most strains have the gene somewhere, but some are more reluctant to express the trait, and those are the ones I would prefer to have given that they are up to par in the other departments. I imagine that some Mr. Nice plants have gone hermie even under the best conditions, and I won't not buy them because of that. I still believe they can be A+ genetics even with some hermie tendencies. I'd very much like to believe that the Mr Nice brand seeds are less likely to hermie than some others though. Hopefully I will have some star plants from one of the packets I get (Shit, Shark Shock, and Devil or NL5 X AF) and no hermies.I don't listen to complaints any more like sopousedly herm prone bull shit. if I see one or two guys do great with a strain then its obviously not gonna be too bad. it just seems like some people do a horrible job growing then they blame the breeder. thats the way I see it anyway plus it would be damn near impossible to find a strain that nobodies ever complained about.
I believe that should read "Almost all 'sativa ish' strains I have grown hermie!". I've grown quite a few sativa dominant and full sativa lines that I've stress tested and have found a higher percentage that don't.Well that being said ,
Almost all "sativa ish " strains hermie !
