Who’s that Girl?
Every once in a while, we come across a concerned customer questioning whether or not they have received the strain they ordered. Understandably, this is an important concern since the consistency of your crop is paramount.
Dark Heart produces a lot of clones and carries more than 30 strains; you would be forgiven for thinking that keeping it all straight is an impossible job. In fact it is an extremely difficult job. Preventing mistakes like this requires organization, discipline, and elegance.
Meeting this standard is one of the small details for which we take great pride. So much so, that we in the garden would be mortified to find that any strain had been misidentified. Not only do we employ several strategies in our routine processes to avoid such a possibility, but if you handed, say a Girl Scout Cookies clone to a DHN propagator and told them to tray it as a Fire OG, well they might have a brain aneurysm. Through our routine work we become intimately familiar with the specific characteristics of each strain. To the point that we can typically identify each strain even in the vegetative state.
Here are a few of the ways that we avoid strain confusion in the garden. We hope that these strategies might be useful to growers with any size garden. (Unless, you have only one plant… then confusion would be weird, right?)
