Richard,




Wooohooo!.....You welcome buddy!....I'm glad that you received the SH-3640 pup in excellent condition!.....Hopefully it grows very good for you!....You see the size of the SH-3640 High Noon pup that you received, that is how the SH-3640 it grows!......BIG!........




Pictures of my SH-3640 Nana Gazebo (7 SH-3640's adult plants) and the third SH-3640 High Noon flowering on the same mat!....With a 9 hands bunch!.....Pictures from 10/20/2018....












I really wonder if the first member that got the SH-3640 from the beginning, received a True To Type/Real SH-3640 High Noon Nana, an off-type clone or a different Nana Variety!....SH-3640 High Noon grows robust, strong!....One of my best growers!....A monster grower!....


Now just "grow it like you stole it!".......LOL!.....a patented phrase from Mike (cincinnana)!.....

Transplanted out of the drainless 5-gallon pot into a 15-gallon pot. The wall behind the pot faces ESE so the plants there receive about 2/3 the morning sun. By spring it should be ready to transplant into the ground.

It's a custom soil mix of 40% horticulture sand, 40% triple-shredded redwood bark, 20% cured compost. On top of the soil is about 1.5 inches of 1/4" orchid bark to slow evaporation in our dry climate.

Yes, I bought it 15 yards at a time when planting fruit trees and stored the leftover few yards in 33 gallon barrels.

Any reason why there has been no growth Richard. I would have thought it would have put out a few leaves by now.

About a month of shock recovery followed by overnight temperatures approaching 50F.

Awesome job Richard! I can’t wait to see it grow for you! Do you use a fertilizer injector? I’m shopping for one right now. I would gladly accept any advice or recommendations! You are the expert! Feel free to PM or email me anytime!

I just dug this SH3640 pup a couple days ago! They are very strong/sturdy plants!
