The deer and the slugs have finally destroyed my best specimen in the field. The slugs pretty much ate the stems and leaves, one by one from the ground up, while the deer nipped off all the stems and leaves from the top down, and left only the very top node and its tiny leaves. But the deer didn't eat the foliage, but rather simply dropped them on the ground around the plant. This must have happened just minutes before my arrival to water the plant, as the stems and leaves were still flexible, not dried-out. So I gathered them up, brought them home and put them in a glass of water and set them in a sunny spot under a hedge, and promptly forgot all about them. A week later, I went to inspect the forgotten "deer-forced" clones, thinking that I would find a dried-out glass and brown dried leaves. But no. They lived. Not just that, but they had started to produce tiny white root buds. So I decided to proceed with another Northern Light clone grow. When deer throw you lemons, make clones.
More than 500 seeds broadcast, more than 50 seedlings transplanted outdoors. It seems that None of the seeds survived, and only 2 of the 50 survived so far. And they arent doing well at all. Deer and slugs have destroyed this year's crop. Just yesterday, I visited the last 2 NLs and photographed them. Then just this morning went back to feed them again, and the deer got the tops of my best plant. The deer were there just before me, as the fresh cropped leaves lay around the plant, still moist, freshly snipped. I hate deer.
