My germ was 5/5. Male to female ratio was 2/5. Both phenos where identical. I vegged this one for 5-6 weeks. Does very good in Veg. It grows real fast and vigorous. Nothing overwhelming though. Grew much shorter and Indica dom. (had Sativa looking leaves). Nice side branches. Bubble Gu

To date probably my favorite strain so far. Evenly mixed 50/50 Sativa Indica plant that has a very large yield of frosty sweet buds. I did recieve a very Indica Afghani looking plant but turned out to be male. The other 2 females were pretty much uniform in every possible aspect.

Grow: Plants were very vigorous... Most of the females were very stout save one more Sativa leaning pheno (my favourite) which grew a bit lankier. All the plants had side branches which kept up with the main colas in length.
All the plants were quite frosty and beautiful but the more Sativa pheno

Grew these two Bubblegum plants indoors from seed. I had two different phenos present themselves. One leaned to the Sativa side, the other to the Indica side. The Sativa leaning pheno smelled of the famed grape bubblegum while the Indica pheno simply smelled very sweet but not exactly "grapey".

The BGís were seeded with the moist paper-towel method, 5/5 succeeded in 10-15 hours. All were potted and put under 2x36W fluoro's. Vegetated for 28 days in 20/4 light cycle, then flowered 12/12 for 56 days under a 250W HPS. I also had a few Nirvana Skunk#1 seeds going, ended up giving them all away. Also had one AfghanxFlo clone, which turned out to be insecure about her budding sexuality (pun intended), and started masturbating on itself. Ok so I got rid of him/her after around 1 month of flowering, harvest: Ĺoz of dry bud that tastes like lawn. :s Had slightly better luck with the BG's, nice buds, nice smell, nice potency, only 2/5 females though, shame. They also had about 2 dozen seeds though, guess the transformer is to blame.

A couple days prior to harvest I took a sample and oven-dried it, smelled and tasted bad and didn't seem to do much. Yes I know, thatís the best way to ruin it, but still that got me a little worried about the whole batch, fortunately for no reason. After harvest the buds were dried for 7 days, after which they were put in mason jars for curing. It's now been 23 days, and I have to say the smoke is pretty nice. The smell is quite strong, very fruity and sweet. The taste is smooth and umm...bubblegummy.

I can't say anything definite about the potency, but everyone who has tried it, says itís awesome. The reason I cant really speak for myself is that I havenít been smoking that much lately and my tolerance is rather low, the couple first times I smoked it, it decked me right after 2 big hits. In comparison, honey oil -coated decent bud has the same effect on me.

All in all, I'm very happy with the results and the strain itself. These 2 BG's took a lot of punishment, pretty much everything a newbie grower can do (wrong). They liked to stretch a lot up till 4 weeks of flowering, so if you donít have the vertical space, prepare for some bondage. I assume this'd make a wonderful SCROG plant.

Oh yeah, this was my first grow ever, and I want to try out other strains, but I'm pretty sure this wasnít the last grow from me with Nirvana's BG.

Germinated 3 seeds, ended up with one healthy female. Vegged the female for a long time (2months) waiting for room in flowering cabinet. flowered for 65 days SCROG style, very manageable stretch.

The plant I ended up with looked more on the Indica side. I grew in Soil with hydroponic nutrients

Vegetative: Growth was as expected. the crippled one stayed small, but started to take off after 2 weeks, t

Here are a few notes on these genes.

Expect two to three phenotypes. One Indica-like pheno, one mix, and one sativa-like pheno were grown. The Indica yielded 1-2 oz better than the sativa pheno. The sativa has a nice clear stone with a very light fruity grape flavor. The Indica has a more rel

The BubbleGum is good Smoke. Growing it well it gets a little tall for my taste She can get 6 feet tall veging from seed for only 6 weeks putting a pot under her thats like 7 to 7 and a half feet tall. I had 2 out of 4 females.
As far as cloneing goes she clones easy and makes a great sog.

Vegetation for 3 weeks at 24 hours. Not many leafs and small when they showed. She was top heavy so I strung her up for about half of her budding. She was short but nice nuggets. She looks like cotton candy. Another Nirvana bargin.

I took clones from (3/5) females I planted from a pack of Nirvana Bubblegum seeds bought from a internet head.
From the one toughest female I sucessfully cloned three generations and these are pics of my best at this strain and I did it far better than my previous attempts.
