    Hi, With the onset of winter, and the low temperature, I am happy to start a new indoor crop, a winter crop. My intention is to make a 100% Natural culture, 100% BIO. So .... What better occasion to try the BIO nutrients from Green House Feeding? In this crop I will use the new BIO nutrients from Green House Feeding (coming soon). It will be great to evaluate results personally. If you want to see how they work, or have any questions, maybe I can help solve it This time I decided to use cuttings, instead of seeds. My intention is to grow a lot, before beginning the flowering. Maybe three or four weeks under 400w / 600w metal halide. Then, maybe the flowering will begin on the middle of January (if all goes well). It is an indoor of 1.2m2 With light 250w / 400w / 600w and 600w SL Extraction and intraction system of air Substrate: soil - Normal soil / A little coconut fiber Nutrients: Green House BIO Feeding Containers: Smart Pot 12 Liters / 3 Gallons Ok, it's the first time thats I use Smart Pot containers, so you should have patience haha First of all, I want to put a little armalite / arlite (volcanic rock) on the bottom. This is to improve drainage, just put it a little. Actually, how is the first time thats I use this type of container .... I want to see the difference, So I add a classic container 12 liter / 3 gallon. I put some earth, about halfway. And then I add some Green House Feeding BIO GROW. According to the indications, 3gr / liter of BIO GROW should be used, for a standard culture of one month and a half, or two months of duration. I start with cuttings, so the growth period is only a few weeks or a month. I Use only half of the recommended dose, use 1.5 gr / liter. Once I added BIO GROW, I put more soil and put it all together. Be careful not to move the volcanic rock from the bottom. I try to make a good mix. Also I add a big handful of coconut fiber to each pot. I like to mix it up, to make it a little more fluffy, and keep the moisture better. Now only the transplant is left. This part is boring and dirty, you have to be careful with the delicate roots of the cuttings. When the transplant is finished, I water the pots with water. Only water with PH set to 6.2 (about 1 liter per pot). Once finished, I like to add a bit of volcanic rock / arlite, on top. In this way I can retain moisture better, the soil does not dry out easily. At the moment, I will use 400w. only. In a few days, maybe 600w. The volcanic rock / arlite, has a horrible ph. You have to soak for several days, with a regulated pH (a bit acid). So that they stabilize. Always, before use. For now .... this is it

    Hi All, This grow will start mid January to end February depending on the weather. First grow for 2018 and it's the Indica prominent White Rhino. Perfect for extreme LST and....maybe SCROG. Lets see when we get to that stage. Anyways, list of bits and bobs I'll be using for this: EQUIPMENT: BudBox Pro 1.2m x 1.2m x 2m (White Interior) RAM 5" Carbon Filter 350m/hr RAM 5" Extraction Fan 378m/hr on controller RAM 4" Fan 277m/hr on controller (ACTIVE INTAKE THROUGH SPARE CF TO MINIMIZE PESTS) 2 x 80w Tube Heaters The combination above creates a nice environment for 8/9 months of the year until winter comes when it is too cold to grow as stealthy as I like.. MEDIA & FEED: 50% Bio Bizz Light Mix 25% Coco 25% Perlite A test mix I have been playing with which might suit the GHSC feed well as there will be very minimal nutritional value in the media. Not a fan of forever potting up so the seeds will be germed in 3lt pots then onto 11ltr final pots. 5 x 3lt pots (GERMINATION / EARLY VEG) 5 x 11lt pots (FINAL POT) Feed will be solely GHSC GROW, BLOOM & ENHANCER and NOTHING else LED: 2 x ViparSpectra 450w (TRUE WATTAGE approx 200w each) 1 x Go Grow V1 Master Grower 600w (TRUE WATTAGE approx 200w) Early veg will be under 1 x ViparSpectra than the other LED's will be steadily introduced until all 3 units are up and running during flower. I want a nice thick canopy to aim at and this "crash of Rhinos" are very nice candidates to play with. Looking forward to the New Year to get started. Goodluck all

    Hi all, Woohoo, it's competition time. I have received 10 x White Rhino seeds & GHS BIO powder feedings in good time and I'll be looking to germinate in January. 1.2m2 indoor grow starting off under 1 x 125w blue CFL (perhaps x 2) in a 60cmx60cmx90cm propagation tent. Mulling getting a MH for the rest of veg, else it will be that CFL plus 250w/400 of HPS. 600w/660w HPS for flower (new bulb). 428m3 extraction through carbon filter. Substrate: 70% Canna Coco (unfed, ie, not the Pro Plus) & 30% Perlite - so I can see how JUST the BIO feeds get on. Nutrients: Green House BIO feedings only - Water will be roof run off at a ppm of ~ 40 (ec 0.08) @ 23C. Containers: 1 litre / 11 litre / 46 litre I shall be topping early & LSTing to keep height down. Good luck everyone!

    Hi, Thanks @in de car, The predators helped me get to the end of the harvest, but the red spider is actually the winner I did a roots wash about ten days ago. An intense root wash, very intense. To eliminate all other nutrients. Some growers do not do a root washing, when using bio fertilizers. I respect it .... but my opinion is full different. I always recommend doing a root wash, always, without exception. I like to see the color of autumn in my grow room, I like to see the yellow leaves, red leaves, worn leaves .... This is synonymous, that the plant is consuming its own resources. This is synonymous that a excellent taste in buds, free of excess nutrients. This cut is of a good friend, it's MK Ultra. He says it's good to relax (I've never really tried it, I'm my first time). Looks nice This mosquito loves to eat and be stoned, every day is placed This other one cut, a good friend sent me it (Mr.K did a test of Powder Feeding here It is a cross, Super Critical x Lion, looks good and smells good. I want to smoke it I hope you enjoy the photos! Tomorrow more and better, greetings!

    ahah bro you made me laugh, trust me! Maybe I will put them on middle all close to each other.. all eight white rhyno popped out, only my grape gum didn't make it.. yet at night I pass by to drop some photos! Edit: I got them closer and in center of tent. Day 3 Veg (05/01/18) Water only, I will post them individually when they are big enough to see the characteristics. Can the fungus be a preventer for gnats and others? Because cover well the pot surface. Sorry my bad english. Happy smoking!

    I, too, have dropped a seed in memorium of Franco. I'm sure that Franco was actively planning a number of strain-breeding projects, but one in particular, of which he may have been especially proud, was the SLEX (SuperLemonHaze x ExodusCheese). At least he seemed very excited about it when he was interviewed recently by Zamnesia Magazine. The testers here in StrainHunters have been very happy with SLEX. The initial SLEX grows have already been harvested, and the smoke-reports are now being posted with positive opinions. I will be ordering the SLEX for sure, as soon as it becomes available for sale. By the way, if you don't know already, there is a Condolences Board opened if you wish to leave a message of condolence for Franco's family and friends, or a farewell message for Franco. On the page showing various pictures of Franco and displaying his life's philosophy, before you click on the link to the actual Condolences Board, first simply scroll down below Franco's pictures, and then you can read Arjan's special message to Franco and to us, Franco's friends, the StrainHunters. Here is the link to the Condolences Board: http://www.greenhouseseeds.nl/franco/ Thank you , too, Arjan for the reassurance that Franco's legacy will continue. Hang in there, buddy. We're with you.

    So. It is finally time to start this new year with a decent grow journal. Thanking GreenHouseSeeds for giving me this amazing opportunity to test out their WhiteRhino strain, and their Bio Feeding Line of powder nutrients. As mentioned in the inscription post, this will be my equipment: - 4x 6500K 35W LED - 4x Full Spectrum 45W LED - The GreenHouseSeed bank BIO Feeding Line - A 60x60x170 SecretJardin Grow Tent - Airflow with one small fan, and 2 filtered extractors (IN and OUT) for 108m3/h. - 2 initial WhiteRhino seeds, 1 will be chosen and brought to flowering. - Pot sizes, varying from 1L, to 6L, to 11L, to 18L. - A scrog net (this will be my first scrog attempt, please be merciful) - A lot of love and joy doing this. And duct tape. And beer. I plan to increase light power with the increased growth. - 1° Week 70W - 2° Week 105W - 3°-5° Week 140W - 6°-7 Week 140W + 45W FS - 8°-12° Week 140W + 90W FS - Remaining Weeks at Maxium Light Output (140W + 180W FS) With this i want to simulate the increased output of the sun, transitioning from spring, to summer. At the end of Week 7 i'll perform the switch to 12-12. I also plan to feed the girls 6 weeks for VEG, and 8 Weeks for Bloom. I'll start feeding at week 4, when i transplant from 6L to the final pot (which i still need to decide between 11 and 18L). This is the current plan for the grow, that WILL be revised as i go on. I'm sharing it just to give an idea.

I also tried to germinate one seed some days before the new year, but it popped the surface as a dead seed. The root grew (small), but the small plant never got rid of the seed shells (after 14 days). I started 2 new seeds, and am waiting for them to pop the surface. I will decide between the 2, who gets to stay. Below, some pics of the equipment: This is the light rack i've crafted. Pretty basic, huh? Pot sizes AND room space. The little white buddy on the bottom right is the dehumidifier, that will be turned on when i switch to 12-12. A special thanks to GreenHouseSeeds. You guys are amazing. Nothing left to say, till the girls pop the surface. Until then... Peace!

    Hello everyone! Setup: DS120 (1.20m/1.20m/1.80m) Veg: 400w Flo: 600w Small intake and outake two fans for air movement Very simple things, I will start in 2.0liter pots and then move to final 11liter pot. I have only on doubt, can I re-use the soil i have left from my clones and a few autos? Infact the clones dont full root the 11 liter pot that I use and in the auto even worse Can I asume that bio-grow it's perfect for it? half dosage it's ok? Here's some polm hash, the symbol was a palm tree, really head high, not really good to work days (28-12-17 Start) My germination was 24 hour in the glass cup with balanced water Paper towell for the next 24 hour, (29/12/17) And the last seedling photo is from today (1/1/18) I'm assuming i can start with the soil, but I guess I'll wait another day to achive good cm's in the seedlings. And I have plenty of time to mix the soil with Biogrow and then start! Happy smoking bros.

    Hello Is it too late to start to participate? I have a White Rhino grow diary on this forum, please check out my old started threads, it was 7 years ago, my first grow back then under a 250 HID. I love this strain and i would love to grow it again! Nowadays i grow under 400W, i will have 4 pots of 20 liters each if i still can be selected to participate. Please let me know if i can enter the contest. Thanks! P.S. I attached some pictures with my White Rhino i grew back then. In the first picture the W.R. is on the left, the right sided plant is an A.M.S. n all the rest of the pictures is the White Rhino.

    Prepared labels The pots cleaned with water and bleach for a deep disinfection Before the transplant I put the growth subscription as recommended by the manufacturer Look at the roots root ball because it is not extensive but I had to transplant them for the subject of the subscriber And it ended with the first 6 plants since the other 4 are slower.

    Hello fellow farmers/competitors/watchers, Tap root a little longer, but not much so wondering if was too moist. So, I've planted them. They're now in 1l pots with the pre-prepared Canna Coco Coir Natural & Greenhouse Feeding Enhancer. The pots have not been watered and the media is nice and fluffy with a little moisture in it but really not much. They're now in a 28c environment and I shall attempt to keep humidity very high initially of course. Happy Growing!

    Hi!! GreenHouse Feeding have a new additive in the bio line, Enhancer, one amazing phyton-protector with: Humic acids Fulvic acids Seaweed Thricoderma Bacillus subtilis …. Perfect to prevent phytosphora, phytium….or to fight againts powdery mildew for example. In addition, increase the life and energy in the soil with amino and carbohydrates, and promotes the plants rooting. In fact, we did a lot of tests germinating seeds. Apply between 0.3gr-0.5gr/liter the growth was increased significantly. But obviously, this would be only neccesary if we are working with old seeds, or with bad conservation. In anyway the expenses, for the low amount of Enhancer in the mixture, is insignificant if we want to use it in all our seeds germinations. Each 15 days, I make manteinance in my mothers room, removing new sprouts. I usually put these cuttings in a plastic glass with water like backup for the next 15 days. One month ago, I irrigated a few automatic seeds with water+0.3gr/liter enhancer. I used that mixture in the plastic glass where I put he cutting plants(backups). 4-5 days later, I took a look the cuttings and I saw roots in 3 (between 25+-) of them!! Eureka!. You can imagine my face. I did the same the last +15 years and never I saw roots with that size in 4-5 days, only putting one cutting in water. Like I am not looking for roots, I didnt take pics, and I dont know if exactly was 4 or 5 days. But after see that, It was enough to make one test. I did the next: 1-Sink jiffys(peat pellet) in water with Enhancer(0.3gr/liter) 2-Drain off 3-Insert the cuttings. Easy!! Keep it simple style! Only with that, I had roots in 6 days, and the cuttings were ready to leave the greenhouse 1 week later, only with 0.3gr of Greenhouse feeding Enhancer, and without hormones or additives. And I was travelling, so the cares were zero. And of course, we can root plants only with water and one medium, water, soil, coco... But 100%, in 7 days, without hormones, and only make clones and transplant 1 week later, is very nice! So I did another test, with the same results. Cutting plants ready in 1 week. I was speaking with my engineer mate in the office about this. And he did the same , and roots in 7 days and a long hairy in 15 days. Pics attached. Amazing!!! In the same time I did another test with one Chemdog mother. Is a very special plant for me, with a incredible taste. Only for that I keep it, because is a hell cloning It and have a very slow growth in the first stage. For that, when I want grow It, I always use additives to get roots in 15 days. The last times I was with Azos, from xtreme gardening. Azospirillum brasilensis. Is a nitrogen fixim bacterium who estimulate the roots. I did a few clones with Azos, and a few clones with Enhancer. And “voilà”, roots with Enhancer in 7 days and any root trace with Azospirillum( usually roots in this strain in 12-15 days, sometimes later) Incredible!! chemdog and Ssh pics, 8 days. I was talking with people who have the same strain and they are without words Xddd One of them gave me Clonex(out of the market in Spain)because he is using it to make clones of this strain, and I will make a comparative between these hormones and Enhancer the next days. In my opinion Clonex have more name than unique results. But like a few years ago It was the main product in the market to make roots, now out of the market people think is the best. And yes, the AIB Works, but isnt the panacea. I will use other concentrations, rock whool… Cheers!!

    Ok, 11am Monday was germination preparation. All the beans had sunk by 5.30pm that same day. One had something trailing from it, like earth was coming out of it or something. Very strange. Anyhoo .... Then with @g22's vertical germination in mind, I fashioned some vertical seed holders out of some bud jar lids and tissue paper. Ph'd run off water (40ppm, ec 0.08) to 5.0 and added a little (0.5g/l) of Greenhouse Feeding Enhancer; soaked the tissue; placed in the White Rhino beans; pop the top on securing with elastic band; then stand on side (so roots can get a gravity assist and know which way to head, cheers @g22); then place in a nice warm dark place (ooh err Mrs). Had a look at 10pm last night and all had cracked their shells. As of now they're as below, with small tap roots. I've resealed and moistened and placed back, will have a look how long tap root is this evening. Happy Growing!

    Hola compañeros, aquí algunas novedades. Las white rhino se están portando de maravilla con el biogrow, en vasos de café con proporción de 0,5g x L de tierra han colonizado perfectamente sus respectivos recipientes. Paso a doblar el tamaño de la maceta ya que su maceta final será de 3l. Por cierto.. De las dos rhino con fenotipo sativo.. Ya os contaré 😏😏🦏🌱

    From seed packet to breaking soil within 4 days seems to have produced 5 baby Rhinos. The plant in the centre is struggling a little with the "skin" of the inner seed shell tight around the cotyledons but it should work its way out, whilst still under and within the moisture of the clear plastic cup (DIY propagator). The other 4 seedlings seem to be fine and I have taken off the clear plastic cups but all 5 seedlings are under the small (12w) "blue" LED I showed you all above. No real worries so far and pleased with the germination rate which I was fairly sure of from past experience with GHSC. Anyways, here are the baby Rhinos.

    Nebula is 12.5kg so still a little ways to go before watering/feeding. After a bit of defoliation on the plants, I guess they'll be using less water as well as not being able to transpire as much. Was worried about this set of 'balls' on Nebula below: Below's a Sensi Star bud forming: Dutch Dragon below: A scene with the tall Jacky White in the background, and Sensi Star & DD front and right respectively:

    Hi hunters! Today is a testing cloning day On 5 MOB seeds , i selected 4 plants at the early stage of grow, after 2 weeks. And today on the 4 plants i selected the 2 more vigorous to keep 1 mother of them. The mother I am going to keep will be selected at the end of flowering as you can understand... For this selection I test for the first time the cloning with, and only with, the ehancer from GH! Here are the differents steps I followed and the material needed. Material Small Greenhouse Ph meter and acid - Ehancer RootRiot cube Blade The STEP i follow : 1) Ajust the water PH at 5.5 before a put the ehancer in it (like GH team explain) 2) Add the GH Ehancer at 0,3gr/litre (as you can see the PH level drop at 6,6 after that) 3) Soak the cubes in the solution 4) Wring slightly the cube to put out the excess watering content 5) Put the cutting in the cube 6) Spray the cuttings with the same solution 7) Spray inside the greenhouse with water & put the cuttings in the small greenhouse Now is time to wait and see what happens with this technique of clonning without rooting hormones. Normaly I use the "remo clonning gel" with great results.

    After a soak of about 16hrs they have gone straight into tiny pots. Just a waiting game now. Hope all 5 seeds make it because I did not put any extras in.

    After a quick relocation for the seedling stage due to temp issues, I have decided to start earlier than I first thought but in a warmer place. Hoping for a 100% germination rate. 5 seeds soaking for around 12hrs or so then straight into small pots with Bio Bizz Light Mix only and covered with cling film until they break soil surface. Lets see how long they take to show themselves.

    I'm afraid I will have to deduct a point for you not having your pots lined up @ayzns (only joking. Lovely photo's and I'm a little bit jealous you're already off! )

    Top left: IC (59cm); Top right: JW (89cm); middle: SS (56cm); bottom left: Nebula (58cm); bottom right: DD (56cm). I've raised JW on two giant jenga bricks to more of it's colas gets light. It's ~20cm taller than the other plants. All are going great guns on pistel development, MUCH better than my first grow and that was good. Humidity is a bit high, ranging from 50-70% but there's lots of air flow so not an issue (but something I'll keep an eye on). Also, as I move the plants in and out of the tent, I get to have a good look at them regularly and they don't get tangled up. Temps are lowering to ~ 75F, and ~ 65F at night. The smell just after lights go off is soooooo strong, so strong that the carbon filter can't cope for about 30 mins. I'm learning that the bigger the pot, the more the plant can produce from a single seed. While I like growing plants, I also like to think I'm helping the plants I grow get to their full potential and feel that finishing them in what is my medium size pot (11l) would do them a disservice (5 x 46l pots fit in my 1.2m2 2m height tent easy). Granted, smaller pots mean more difference strains of plant can be grown. Be the plant baby! As a plant, what would you like? Large pot or small? As a grower, I'd like a bit of redundancy just in case something goes wrong with a plant, so I'm defo steering to max 4 plants in their final 46l in my tent, and perhaps on another grow I'll just do 2 plants. SS still has that bit of leaf damage from a deficiency/excess, and Nebula has a little of it now. They seem to be fighting through it though. Nebula, JW and DD got massive doses of nutes early on which they're working through (EC was up to 4.0!). New nutes will not have any nitrogen in to promote the plant to start using the overabundance of nitrogen in their leaves (they're very green) - well, that's the plan. PK Warrior 18/6/(5.1) potassium/phosphorous(/sulphur) for them. Harvest date is scheduled for Valentines Day. This means I can pop the White Rhino seeds for the competition around middle January and my large tent will be available when they need it. Currently deciding what my strategy will be for the White Rhino competition considering the change from liquid to solid feed (powder).

    Hello cannabica family, I will explain a bit the culture medium and the work plan that I will carry in this crop. First the growth room will be this and the White Rhino will be accompanied by other varieties (I will not go into details if they can not give us the grapes hahaha) with which until the flowering will be in this room and flowering will incorporate two more 600W bulbs In the photo you see many plants but most will be discarded since I am selecting and looking for good mothers. The photo growth period will be 20/4 since I've been working with it for several years and it's going great. The lighting will be of HM and HPS in the same growth / flowering site since there will be three bulbs, the lateral HPS and that of the medium HM is a method that we are studying for a while. The culture medium will be on land and with the bio fertilizers that the bank has given us, so thank you very much for the attention provided Finally, for the prevention of pests and diseases, I will use the propolix that you have been using from the first day of cultivation at low doses. With this I finish and tell you that everything is already underway so I hope you like it PS: any help or comment is appreciated as I am not a professional and I love hosting new ideas Greetings and luck Arrankeddj

    Hi All. This is my 3rd grow and boy have I come a long way. Im still not a pro, but I have learned alot. My second grow was unsuccessful because of my lack of experience in growing in promix coco coir. Heat also being an issue. Anyways back to the Velvet Bud grow.... Apparently Velvet bud is a descendent of Purple bud. Velvet bud is produced by Seedsman. I didn't pick this strain. It was given to me because of a order blunder from the local outlet...so this is how I ended up with it. My set up is: 800mm x 800mm x 1250mm grow tent 400w MH/HPS 400w digital ballast 100mm centrifugal extractor fan 4 x 20L pots Soil medium : promix coco coir perlite mix 50/50 Pots lined with filter floss Hydroponics system using normal 3 part nutrients system. Grow nutes Micro nutes and Bloom nutes by EHG. Seedling stage: 3 out of 5 seeds germinated. Seedlings where ready for transplanting into the bigger pots after about 2 weeks. Used a humidity dome to keep the fellows warms as temps where still cool. I felt that the seedlings responded well to a temp of 24 celcius. 15% nutes of bloom grow and micro. Two seedlings flourished while the 3 guys lagged behind a bit. Unfortunately no pics of the seedling stage. Vegative stage: Once these guys got into the bigger pots they just took off. Ramping up the nutes gradually to 90 % of the recommended dosage with Grow, Micro and CalMag( a definite must for growing in coco coir). I only topped these plants once, then after a few days I LST the 4 main branches by pulling them down with pipe cleaners. The above picture is after 3 weeks of vegging since I put the seedlings into these pots. Good vigorous growth for Velvet Bud! I ended up using an auto pot for one on the right. I also added an airstone and pump. You can clearly see the difference! Im not doing any testing. Im just following the schedule on the nutrient bottle but dosing slightly less and seeing how the plants respond. I add a table spoon of CalMag to every 10L of normal tap water. 18/6 light schedule with MH globe. Temps where a little low so I added a temp sensor switch to my extractor fan. When the light comes on it also acts as a heater, so when the temp got to 25 celcius the extractor fan would come on and cool the tent and plants down with cool air from the outside. Above is a picture of the temperature controller. The sensor is in the tent, it also has a heating as well as a cooling option. This controller really helps with keeping a constant temperature. The above pic is at 4 weeks veg. Nice lush vigorous growth.Plant is looking really bushy and healthy. Velvet bud is responding well to the nutrients. Grow 20ml/10l, Micro 10ml/10l and Tblspn CalMag. Normal tap water with no testing. You're probably wondering what that piece of acrylic is for....well its a budget way to replicate a ventilated hood. I'm not using the temp controller anymore as the outside temps have risen so now I have the extractor fan running constantly. I had a piece of perspex(acrylic) clear cut to fit the tent perfectly. I used a holesaw to cut holes into the acrylic glass directly under where the globe would be. I did this because when the extractor fan creates the negative air pressure inside the tent, its will pull the tent tight around the edges of the acrylic and force the cool air from the bottom compartment into the above compartment directly over the globe therefore also keeping the globe cool and keeping my plants cool. Its also adjustable. I also have been using a humidifier on and off. I usually only use it weather depending. During this time I also took six clones. I used a rooting hormone and rockwool cubes all six clones rooted after 10 days. Velvet Bud takes good clones!!! I gave 4 away (good karma) and added 2 clones to a fourth pot. I had to leave for a month and had to ask very nicely if she would take care of them. I had to mod the grow to make it as easy as possible for her maintain. So I bought a tray to fit the tent and ripped out the single auto valve I had, stuck it in the center of the tray, chucked the plants in, filled the tray with hydroton balls, made a watering schedule and nutrient mix levels( 20ml/10l bloom 10ml/10l micro 1/2 Tblspn CalMag) 10l and Mondays and 10l on Thursdays and had to leave for a month wondering if my girlfriend would take good care of my babies........ Whoo hooo!!! So after a month of flowering I return to this!!! Velvet Bud is looking so good and really is starting to smell so good. Nice sweet fruity smell ! My girlfriend did good!!! Box of chocolates for her!! I was mostly impressed with the two clones I had planted into the fourth pot front right in the picture. Heads as big as the rest and looking super healthy with fat nugs forming on the stems. Week 6 of flowering and Velvet Buds are swelling up and are just smelling irresistible!! Another wider pic at 6 weeks. Tents is so full!! 😁 The above pic is at 9 weeks flower. Buds are full of trichomes and have been flushing. Trichomes are not completely cloudy though so will defs have to go for another week. 9 weeks.... Buds are so fat they are starting to lean on each other with only the tent sides holding them up! Thats all for today folks.....will continue with this grow story once I have harvested. Its just about ready. Till then..chow

    Hi ShaggyGrower These two look healthy, although I see in all the photos the substrate very wet. Is it possible that there is excess water? Personally I always like to see the substrate a little drier, and go watering with little quantity. the new options to replace the empty pots, sound interesting Cheers

    sorry for lack of updates my cpu was really old and started freezing on my cheese thread and others. So I got a new cpu and now im flying through content. Now here is wat you miss Week 3 not much to report. plants started building resin. Week 4 went out of town for 3 days and came home to find thrips had taken up residence Week 5 fight with the thrips goes on. I sprayed with a 70% neem oil because the lady bugs weren't doing the trick ( they useally work great) Week 6 the neem knocked the thrips back but didnt full eraticate them. So i moved on to more drastic measures. So i sprayed with azamax cheese Week 7 resin is coloring up Week 8 Chopping time Plants cut whole and hung Week 9 Starting to trim Cheese Super critical Size comparison

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
