New Packaging & Product Freshen-ups!

New Look for CSL Accessories & Consumables

"Made in the U.S.A. 
 by Illegal Immigrants!"

It's been a long time since a lot of ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ accessories & consumable products have gotten fresh packaging, so...

The Large & Compact Grow-Lites, Deluxe Liquid Plant Food Kit, ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ & Plant Food Spikes (2-packs & 10-packs) are now shipping in cardboard boxes instead of the large burlap boxes we've used for years.

A New Standard & An Exciting New Feature

Maui Wowie Nomal (Non-Bright)
Maui Wowie Bright

Introducing our newest standard variety... MAUI WOWIE

MAUI WOWIE meets several long-standing needs for cross-breeders with its very fast growth rate and "square" form (as tall as wide) in an outdoor standard variety. This combination of stats was suggested by breeder! We listen!

Replacing Trifecta in the ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ line up, MAUI WOWIE also brings with it the new Version 4.19.906 update. These plants are compatible with the all-new PLANT AUXIN growth enhancer.

PLANT AUXIN is an optional way to give a plant a one-time 25% growth boost and a "second chance" for 1-seed females to achieve multi-seed yields. Simply place a single-use vial of PLANT AUXIN within 3 meters of a compatible 4.19.906 plant and click "Auxin" in the plant's Main Menu. The auxin vial will self-destruct after use. A message appears in the heading part of the plant's menu to confirm that a 25% growth spurt will occur at the next cycle. What's more, 1-seed females will "re-roll their genetic dice" to give them a second chance at two or three seed yields (with better odds).

MAUI WOWIE is on sale now at ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ Central. For the month of February, it's the Stash of the Month, so you'll get 10% off the usual price (L$270 for a 2-seed pack & L$1620 for a 24-seed Growers Bulk Pack). And for a limited time, you can try out PLANT AUXIN with free vials included in every pack!

PLANT AUXIN is available in packs of four (L$150) & ten (L$375) single-use vials in the Plant Food section of the store.

A New Year's Special & A New Version!

“The world is changing: I feel it in the water, I feel it in the earth,and I smell it in the air.”


Full bright TREEBEARD LE in its natural habitat.

The  ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Team went deep into J.R.R. Tolkien's Fangorn Forest to bring back our 2018 New Year's Limited Edition, TREEBEARD.

The oldest of the Ents in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Treebeard was a tree-like creature, "a shepherd of trees," and as the wizard Gandalf said, "the oldest living thing still walking the Sun upon this Middle-earth."

As Ents do, Treebeard came to resemble the plants he herded, and the  ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ TREEBEARD is no exception. This LE is genetically designed to guard your grow in the coming New Year!

Like its namesake, ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ TREEBEARD is strong and slow -- high potency, slow growing indoor/outdoor plants. Although the "real" Treebeard was four meters tall, these are medium large plants at 1.925 meters tall and wide, and feature subtle sprite-like Entwives FX.  

(Entwives, you ask? Hey, we're NOT going to read LOTR to you! Go buy the Cliff Notes! Watch the movies! Google is your friend. Does this mean there's a LOTR set heading our way in 2018? You tell us!)

Two seed packs are on sale for L$420 and 10-seed bulk packs for L$2100 at ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ Central.

NEW VERSION!


What's more, TREEBEARD is our first Version 4.19.905 release! So we've released a new HUD (Version 4.20180101) for your updating enjoyment!

Version 4.19.905 has several new features, but the most exciting is the new myGrow 2.0 web page link. Instead of the old hard to use single page list, the new myGrow is "paged" and provides several basic search filters to help you locate your currently growing plants. New version plants record more information about themselves: tint, glow, FX, and importantly, location. So for 4.19.905s, you're able to click a SLURL link on your myGrow 2.0 page that can transport you directly to that specific plant! (You'll still be able to see older version plants in myGrow 2.0. Those listings don't include FX, tint, and glow stats, and the direct teleport link isn't available.)

What's more, the myGrow 2.0 system encrypts your username and ID. Privacy, privacy, privacy! But as they say, better safe... Now, if somebody wants to see your myGrow page -- perhaps to figure out a buy or trade -- they'll have to get the link from you!

You'll find your personal link to myGrow 2.0 in the Help Submenu of every 4.19.905 plant as well as in the HUD Menu > Help Submenu of HUD 4.2018.

Additionally, we've added AutoPause and PassGroup controls to the plant menu. Now, AutoPause is available to HUD-phobic growers (who get no benefit from PassGroup anyway). but more importantly, this lets you fix any cross-ups when configuring a group with the HUD. (Yes, we all forget to click plants "HUD On" when setting up groups! 😜)

AutoPause and PassGroup are found in the new Special Submenu of plants' Advanced Menu. This meant moving the Banner button from the Advanced Menu back to the Main Menu to make room for the Special Submenu on the Advanced Menu.

Confused? Good! The bottom line is that you're now only two clicks instead of three from hiding hovertext banners! (Djeaux thinks this is the coolest part of the new version, but he doesn't like text banners.)

As always, the new version incorporates a lot of small, mostly behind the scenes changes to make the growing experience work better and provide you with easy access to the tools you need to take your breeding projects to the next level. And oh yeah, we sometimes change things just to make sure that growing ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ remains challenging and fun. (You figure out what that last sentence meant!  😁)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
HAPPY GROWING! 
And remember, "it's always 4:20 somewhere!"

Heaux Heaux Heaux - Holiday Specials


The ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ Team has a big pile of goodies for you under the tree! Based from our alternate shops at the 2017 RFL Christmas Breedables Expo as well as ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ Central, we're bringing you lots of holiday cheer!

RFL STAR OF WONDER

First... Our annual One-Of-A-Kind (OOAK) LE, RFL STAR OF WONDER. These large plants are 6.0 Superweed out of the box and feature an amazing "Royal Beauty" FX. The highest bid takes all 24 seeds that will ever be released, along with bonus gifts worth over L$4000 if purchased separately.

We're asking for a minimum bid of L$10,000 on this OOAK, with 100% of the proceeds going to RFL. Check out displays at our Expo locations and follow the Growers & Breeders Group for more details on this outstanding opportunity to get a unique strain and help out Relay For Life!

HOLIDAY NUGZ RED, BLUE & GREEN w/Radz FX
We are also delighted to introduce our second holiday package -- HOLIDAY NUGZ. These little jewels are fun-sized, medium potency, medium growth rate outdoor plants with RED, GREEN, and BLUE foliage. These plants not only expand the WeeDable mini-plant series but also expand the "Radz" FX set as well!


"But wait, there's more..."

The ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ Team also brings you a very special Special Edition (SE) set, and it's a real "Sneaky Santa!"  Enjoy  a visit from the JOLLY ST NICK who stashes GIFTS GALORE under the tree, and then unwrap 'em to find WISHES COME TRUE!
Left to Right: WISHES COME TRUE, GIFTS GALORE, JOLLY ST NICK Special Edition Set
Generation 1 plants are JOLLY ST NICK, featuring a vintage Santa graphic. Santa leaves GIFTS GALORE in the 2nd generation, and WISHES COME TRUE in the 3rd generation. Like our other SEs, each generation has a chance of producing an alternate foliage in its offspring. But because Santa Claus is coming to town, these plants have a 100% chance of throwing the next foliage in the set!

All three varieties are medium potency, very fast growing outdoor plants featuring White Twinklies FX. And yes, Virginia, that FX is an extension of last year's Twinklies FX set!


Growers Notes (Caution! Technical information ahead!)
  • Previous SE sets (Mandala and Star Trek) present a 1-in-25 (4%) chance of throwing an alternate foliage when seeds or bricks are germinated. These are our customary SE odds and are built into every ovule, which makes it possible (since Star Trek) to update SE plants using the HUD 4.2017. In order to make every succeeding generation show alternate foliages, Sneaky Santa seeds have a one-off (4.19.904m) ovule. (You can verify this by the usual Edit > Content > Ovule Properties method.)
     
  • Plants with the 4.19.904m ovule will always produce offspring that follow the SE sequence, JOLLY ST NICK > GIFTS GALORE > WISHES COME TRUE. The sequence repeats beginning at generation 4.
     
  • Males are capable of passing the specific foliage they display and are also able to pass the White Twinklies FX. This is probably the best strategy for working the FX into other breeding lines.
     
  • Mutations such as dwarf, giant, superweed, or ultra will be lost in the next generation unless the grower chooses one of two paths. First, the SE Lock may be used to remove the SE system and lock in the parent's foliage forever. Or you may devise a plan based on the following information...
     
  • The standard upgrade ovule presents 4% rather than 100% odds of throwing an SE foliage. Upgrading Sneaky Santa plants using the HUD 4.2017 in CSLUT mode will replace the 4.19.904m ovule with a regular 4.19.904 ovule. Although the offspring will still have SE capabilities, the odds of getting an alternate foliage are greatly reduced, and mutation stats will be passed as usual.

      
Notes for Secondary Market Buyers:
  • A "pure" Sneaky Santa plant will show 4.19.904SE in the plant's stats after germination. It will also contain a 4.19.904m ovule. The odds of the offspring following the alternate foliage sequence are 100%.
     
  • A Sneaky Santa plant that has been updated with a standard ovule will show 4.19.904SE in the plant's stats, but the ovule inside will be 4.19.904. The odds of the offspring having an alternate foliage are 4%, the regular mutation rate.
     
  • A Sneaky Santa plant that has been "SE Locked" will show 4.19.904 in the plant's stats. It may have a 4.19.904m ovule or a 4.19.904 ovule (if it's been updated), but the SE system has been removed. The odds of the offspring having an alternate foliage are zero.

A Busy Month!

The Matrix w/Green Fog FX
October & November were busy at ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ Central! Starting on October 18, five new LEs were released in 31 days!

The Matrix came first. Steaming with Green Fog FX and the "falling numbers" foliage, this "large-ish" medium growth rate, medium potency indoor/outdoor strain featured a Gen 1 sound bite (Morpheus' classic red or blue pill quote from the movie) and came packaged in a "red pill."

Devil Weed w/Brimstoned FX


Sweet Leaf w/Freakified FX
Next up was a pair of medium-sized, fast-growing, high potency Halloween LEs: Devil Weed, our Halloweed strain with Brimstoned FX, and Sweet Leaf, our Day-of-the-Dead sugar skull variety with Freakified FX (a multicolored leaf). These were delivered as four seed packs (two seeds of each type).

Zom Bee w/Baby Beez FX 

As an extra "treat" for Halloween, the ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ
team released Zom Bee. Medium potency, very fast growing outoor plants, these little boogers featured "art by Gleaux" for both the foliage and "Baby Beez" FX.


Anonymous w/Gunpowder FX
Finally, to celebrate Guy Fawkes' Day and help us "remember, remember the fifth of November, the gunpowder treason & plot," came Anonymous, a medium potency, medium growth rate monster with flashing Gunpowder FX and a Gen 1 sound bite. Released at Westem's Patron Auction with "bonus bags" for winning bidders!

Whew! That's a lot of crazy cool LEs coming fast! And the holiday season is just beginning! And remember, we're running a "grower design contest," so you may have a chance to design an LE! Check out the Buzz for details -- pick up a copy at any of the newpaper machines at ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ Central!
