BubbleGum XL - Hybrid - Royal Queen Seeds

For my 5th grow I’m gonna try RQS Bubblegum XL Feminized. Its a 50%50% Hybrid Sativa leaning and the 4th seed out of the RQS Fem Mixer Pack. I’m using the generic hybrid recipe since this one isn’t in the catalog yet and didn’t see anything close by RQS

Bubblegum XL

Bubblegum XL Is a fine example of the new school Amsterdam genetics. Though not as strong as some other varieties from Amsterdam, like our Amnesia Haze. Her genetics are more sativa dominant, though the effect is a nicely balanced mix of stoned and high. Bubblegum XL is a great all round smoke and a great plant for all types of grower.

A broad and sweet Strain

This plant can easily yield 500 grams per square meter when grown indoors, not the largest yield but the quality makes it worth it. Outdoors, it all depends on the climate; dense hybride cannabis strains like this can grow in most countries in the right season. However extra attention must be paid to avoid problems with mould and rot in wetter climates. She will not grow too tall and doesn’t even stretch up too much like some Dutch strains do – staying small and manageable.

Her Rapid Flowering Time Offers Fast Results

Bubblegum XL has a sweeter aroma than many other Amsterdam strains, with a sweet earthy flavour. Flowering takes around 8 to 9 weeks, producing dense, resin covered buds.

Germination (Day 5 / 10)

I’ve used the “soak in distilled water for 12hrs first” method again and this AM we have a sprout. So thats 5 of 5 seeds that have successfully sprouted so far(knock on wood). Since this one seems to have the potential to be taller(all of them have been so far) I’m going to try and FIM this instead of topping twice…if it ends up just being a topping i’ll leave it with just one topping. Hoping that gives more time to train before it grows so tall.

Early Vegetation (Day 2 / 14)

day two of early veg, seems little slower to develop then last couple …could be the cold temp this strain doesn’t like or just strain differences…gonna bump the thermostat up another degree and see(hoping I dont’ need to move it upstairs thru the winter.)

Early Vegetation (Day 8 / 14)

just quick pic, seems to be developing …fat leafs so far, this one might be showing more of its indica side…i was/am expecting this to be as tall as the fruit spirit so this seems kinda interesting

Late Vegetation (Day 5 / 14)

so i’m a little concerned this plant seems really “bla” very ruffly leafs, slight curling of leafs. I tried to calibrate ph probe but it says its fine and doesn’t need it after cleaning and testing in 7.0 solution. As well i was concerned that the old airstone it shipped with is just to worn out (i have been cleaning it after each grow) attached a video of what bubbles look like…

I ordered a replacement external pump with 2 stones(just incase the internal pump dies again (second one) and just used one that i soaked for an hour It has a suction cup to hold it in place… I’m hoping that helps…otherwise i’m not sure the issue.
@Stephen any thoughts?

the bottom part of the coco pod that stuck out bottom of lid had broken off from roots pushing thru and was in reservoir, I’ve removed it , top of pod is just slightly damp to touch

Late Vegetation (Day 9 / 21)

so thanks to Silvergrobo’s advice I’ve added a fan to help dry out the cocopod…it does look like it was dampening off …im guessing that as the root developed the bottom of the cocopod tore away from bottom enough that it was wicking water up into the pod before it broke off completely. the pod does seem dry now(using little fan to try and help dry completely.the leafs do seem to be lifting up now and spreading out so I’m hoping its on its way to recovery.

You can also carefully push your pod up about 1/2” which should hopefully help as well.

Late Vegetation (Day 17 / 28)

took a chance and topped since it was at that point even though its recovering from dampening… overall tho it seems to be picking up, the upper leafs are stretching better now… I’ve added two weeks to late veg to try and give it more time to develop before flip to transition

Late Vegetation (Day 23 / 28)

recovery is going very well and things are looking better, got most of the branches spread out, still this one seems like it won’t get too tall, others were major stretchers this one seems to be very tight node density … extending late veg another week(3 weeks total so far) hoping with tucking the big fan leafs under they start to stretch some before the flip.

Late Vegetation (Day 26 / 35)

Drain and fill day, things look good, gave a lollipop trim to clean up lower growth that wasn’t getting any light now… just gotta watch the height now ,due to slow growth I’m guessing this strain will not stretch to the moon like the others have but time will tell.
