Melon Ball

(Chocolope#2 x Bubblegum)

Welcome folks to the second installment of Onius Gear! This time I've taken my Chocolope keeper and tried to tame it a bit with a vigorous, well structured Bubblegum male. The mother produces dense nuggets with a very euphoric high and sweet anise/melon aroma. Aromas transfer to flavor nearly perfectly. Her only downsides were that she was too bushy. Producing too many branches which were too thin. Looking for the Bubblegum male to strengthen those up a bit and tame the number of shoots to make a plant with better structure.

C13-haze you say? Sounds really nice! Is that a Cananalope Haze x G13 Haze from DNA? DNA is on my badass breeders list for sure.... along with TGA, Mr. Nice, and DJ short... as well as our local breeders of course!

Early on it appears the Bubblegum male has tamed the number of shoots produced :) But the stems still seem hollow and somewhat weak. Hopefully the shoots are at least somewhat stronger than the Chocolope; some strains don't harden their stems until a couple weeks into bloom... time will tell. Growth is healthy and fast, but plant was moved under MH from flouro room two weeks after the Black Bubble plant so it's a little behind in growth. This is not a vigor issue, but an issue of this plant not receiving as much light.

Transplanted this one into a 2 gallon pot the other day. It still hasn't shown sex though. Thought it might be putting out male parts but now they look like half leaf/half female pre-sex. Time will tell for sure, crossing fingers.

What the heck you doing to these plants OOO??? Makes me wonder if its something environmental. I know that's controversial, but its seems too crazy not to have a explanation. Hope your gifted with many beautiful girls in the near future bro. Keep your back to the wall. lol.


Nothing I'm doing different. 15 males over 10 different strains is WAAAAAAAAAAY too small a sample number to draw ANY conclusion from. I didn't pop more than two of any strain. 2/2 males means absolutely nothing other than I picked the wrong seeds. I'm always amazed when people draw a conclusion from 10 seeds. Flip a coin 10 times and you'll VERY often not get 5/5. Flip a coin 15 times... and every once in a while you'll get 10 tails. It's not until you compile 100 or 1000 seeds that you can make a real judgement.

Well... it's official... I'm a total F-tard. The plant that I originally said was a girl... but then I was SURE was a male... is a female!

Ha! Talk about jumping the gun. Anyhoo, she's a big bush now, and is going into a 10 gallon any day now. Scheduled for bloom in less than a month.

Bubblegum male has done EXACTLY what I want so far :) The mother Chocolope it a MESS of tangled branches that can't hold themselves up at all. I have to trim 50%.. yes 50% of her vegetation off before I put her into bloom or else things get ugly. The hybrid Melon Ball, however, has had much stronger stems and her spacing is perfect instead of all bunched up like her mother.

Mother and daughter are right next to each other in veg and similar sizes. Mom Chocolope is going into bloom in just a night or two which means they'll be in bloom together as well. I'll make sure and get pictures of both of them so you can literally see how the Bubblegum has improved the structure.

So Melon Ball is a great strain! It could be better though. The male Bubblegum I used passed on all the traits I wanted EXCEPT it's smell and a high enough frequency of mega-chron offspring. Rather than passing "bubblegum" flavor or smell, it's offspring have taken from Bubblegum's Afgani heritage, which smells more like funky socks... lol. The real trouble with this male is that for every one amazing goo monster he produces there are three average plants. That's a 1 in 4 keeper ration which is no where near good enough. Also, my selection of Chocolope wasn't very much like melon or chocolate. My Chocolope has a heavy anise/dank smell. So "Melon Ball" is not a good name for this cross. This cross doesn't really need a name though, as it's really just one stop on the genetic trail for the making of a true strain.
