    Ever since we started growing and breeding cannabis we have been looking for the perfect plant feeding. Never satisfied with the results from using several brands available on the market, we started researching our own formula at the beginning of the third millennium. After several years spent in the lab and in the growrooms, investing significant resources in R&D, we came up with a new concept: keep it simple! Simplicity is our secret for success. Most fertilizer brands on the market require customers to buy a line of products, making things expensive and complicated. We aimed in the opposite direction, creating a powder product that delivers unprecedented results with minimum cost and a user-friendly approach. Easier to transport, easier to store, easier to use, and with a longer shelf life than liquid fertilizers. We are now ready to introduce GREEN HOUSE POWDER FEEDING: - It is a one-component mineral fertilizer developed to target specific types of cannabis. - Producing great cannabis has never been so easy. - One product for the whole crop. Maximum yield, maximum resin production, minimum effort. http://www.greenhousefeeding.com

    Hi hi ho!! Comes the day 36 of flowering, temperatures plummet, Max 23º and minimum of 17º ...... this promises a lots of resin !! The buds are still in formation, some begin to gain weight slowly, but it seems that even no rush .... Increased extraction, low humidity at 60% maximum and 35% minimum. I'm happy, but to prevent bad fungi, I am using foliar horse tail, this prevents fungi. Less bla bla bla and more pictures, I hope you like macros !! They can also view them on Instagram, my account is @josegreenhouse Greetings !!

    Hi, The plants have grown at a good pace, has been used water with pH regulated to 6.2 and 400w of HM illumination. The irrigations were every four or five days. There is not much heat, it is good to maintain moisture. They have a nice color, it is a natural color, very healthy. The cuttings have adapted very well, grow many new branches and everything at a fast pace. In a few days I had a pruning of low branches, because it already seemed a little jungle. The plants grow very quickly (much), I think change to bloom soon. On the Tuesday 10th, it seems like a good day to make the change from growth to bloom. So I made a light bulb change, now I'm using a HPS bulb (Philips sont pia plus) at 600w. I has also removed all the arlite from the top, has been added the Green House Bio Feeding for flowering, and put the arlite again. I had to remove the lower branches again, another pruning :). They grow at full speed. Now I irrigated with water, with the pH adjusted to 6.5, they are at 12/12 (light). What I like the most, is the speed of growth, and the fantastic color they have. Really healthy, you can tell that they are happy plants. Currently: Lighting 600w HPS / 12-12 light time / water schedule at 6.5 ph / Temp. Max. 26º Temp. Low 17º Temp Normal 22 ° / Humidity 65% Soon more photos and info, regards

    Hi, Thanks for the feedback mates The plants continue to grow little to little, at the same time they are also making flower. Now it's all very interesting, I can even check some benefits of the BIO fertilizer. The appearance of beneficial mushrooms gives me a lot of confidence. Only substrates with a lot of life, have this type of fungi. It is very positive for my plants, because they look healthier. The fungi do not appear on all the plants, I imagine that in some of the pots it has been very mixed with the earth. Maybe that's why it only appears in some pots. The plants are growing at a good pace, some of them need tutor. So it's time to tie I am also growing some specimens of Flower Bomb Kush, under LED lighting. I made the mix of 50% soil and 50% coconut for them. They are about to pass a flowering, they use one gallon in smartpots. 90w LEDs are enough to grow, with obviously high quality LEDs. I used 3 grams of BIO Feeding per liter of mixture (coconut and soil). At three weeks, I used BIO Enchance (and I repeat every two weeks onwards). I wanted to do a test without use a clay balls (volcanic clay), to evaluate results. Coconut fiber is more aerated, in conjunction with soil, it also has a great microbacterial life. What happens if we use high quality BIO fertilizers and a suitable lighting system? What happens if we use high quality BIO fertilizers and aerated soil? The results are impressive. Plants with a superior growth, a powerful speed. Plants with optimal health, really healthy. And above all ..... An EXPLOSION OF THE ROOT SYSTEM. The roots of the plants go crazy, they are so healthy that they have developed to snows never seen. I do not know how to explain it, they develop so much that they try to get out of the pot hahaha they are great. There are lots of roots, that's super positive. A cannabis plant with many roots, is a plant that can be nourished well, fattening the buds very easily. A plant with a good root system is a very healthier plant. But in addition, the roots are incredibly healthy. Everything is perfect for the moment. The flower bomb Kush are surprisingly healthy and powerful (today or tomorrow will begin blooming). The rest of the plants are progressing very well, now it is in its third week of flowering (more or less). They eat very healthy, forming many shoots and filling the indoor with a delicious smell .... All for now Cheers

    Personally I think, that this nutrients are working very well. It's all 100% natural, and the plants are really healthy. I only removed one plant (a crazy GWS) because my dog decided to eat it haha. Instead, I have put a FBK (Flower Bomb Kush), something smaller in size ... but I hope to contribute some grams in good buds. I like the strength of roots. They are everywhere, in all. The first buds begin to form .... That's all for now! Cheers!

    Hi Guys, this is from my journal and I've been asked if I would post it here too, so here it is: A few people have asked about the CO2 bubblers I have in my little grow tent so here's exactly what the set up is, very cheap and I think successful looking at my girls in comparison to my last grow they are way way ahead but that could just be the difference in strains, these are Autos the others weren't. In my set up I'm using: 2 x 1.5Liter drinks bottles 2 x Wine/Beer bubblers - Cost anything between $3-5 for two including the rubber bungs. Contents: 1 x Cup Unrefined sugar Half teaspoon Bakers Yeast, apparently brewers yeast is even better and last a bit longer as mine only produce bubbles well for three days before I either add more sugar or a freshmix completely. Half teaspoon baking soda to speed up process a little. Empty and clean your bottles, you can use bigger if you like just up the ingredients a bit, pour in 1 x cups of unrefined sugar, you can use standard white but I just happen to use unrefined anyway so it was to hand. Then pour in some warm NOT hot water fill 2/3rds, you must leave room at the top for expansion or they can overspill !!! Place top back on and shake furiously till sugar is pretty much dissolved in water, then remove top and add your yeast and baking soda, put top back on and shake like mad again. Voila, your mix is ready, now just put the bungs in bottle tops and put bubblers in the bung holes, fill one side of plastic bubbles with water and you'll be able to see exactly how often it produces bubbles of CO2. Mine normally start produciing within 3-4 hours and then bubble every 5-15, faster at first and then slowing down, once they slowed right down just repeat the whole exercise again or just top up with more sugar. I tend to do a completely fresh set up otherwise it produces bubbles but nowhere near the same rate. I'm doing my nutes change today and have now got another two bottle, which I now intend to hang above the plants, one in each corner as CO2 is heavy than oxygen so drops down, ideally you want it dropping onto your plants. There are many other ways to use CO2 from tiny little cannisters 5-10grams right up to huge great cyclinders with hundreds of liters but for most home/small growers the method described above is cheap and effective, the only problem is you have no real control over exactly how much CO2 is being released nor do you know exactly how much it's producing, unless you get a CO2 meter. Here's my set up with four bottles hanging one in each corner. Hope this helps, Toaor

    Hi Hunter's, I wanted to make this topic for a while but haven't had the courage to word it out, i do feel tho however that it could possible help someone as it helped me. so i will explain just what i mean when i say using White family Genetic's to treat opiate and cocaine addiction. those of you who know me or check out my grow's would probably be surprised to find out i am an EX heroin addict and was addicted to opiate's for a long time. I have a disease known as IBD or inflamed bowel disease. I had been self medicating with pain killer's all through high school and for the majority of my adult life. For the longest time i could remember i felt hopeless. I used methadone to try and quit with zero success i would use heroin on top of the methadone because the methadone alone was sufficient to treat the pain it was a cycle of let down after let down and i truly felt trapped. For the longest time i thought there was nothing i could do and that i was destine to be an addict for the rest of my life. Until the day my doctor suggested i try marijuana for pain and the methadone for addiction. i thought she was crazy i already smoked marijuana in my teen's like crazy tho i had stopped for the most part by then because i found that smoking marijuana when i was in withdrawal gave me panic attack's and made my situation worse. She told me that different strain's can have different effect's so try a numasber of them till you find one that work'. and SO i went to the dispensary and bought a bunch of different type's of marijuana. For me i was like a kid in a candy store and it renewed my love for weed. so i got to smoking and trying as many strain's as possible, i found personally that many of the strain's helped my pain some even better then the opiate's. But the most amazing thing was when i smoked a strain called GWS again this strain used to be very popular when i was a kid so it was a blast from the past for me to try again. when i smoked it tho i found something incredible happened all my urge's to use opiate's just went away almost like i forgot about it ( which any addict will tell you is impossible) i couldent believe it the more of it i smoked the less i relapsed. eventually i was able to stop taking heroin all together around the time i joined this forum i actually started to come off my methadone. everyone i know has seen the change in my condition both my doctor's on the medical side and my parent's family and friend's. my mom to this day thank's god that i found marijuana again and it has completely changed her view's on marijuana. But here's the thing i knew it worked for me but until recently i had no clue as to why? i had a lot of questions like why did GWS and white widow have this effect? i remeber watching a video from drug inc around this time where aryan mentioned his time in laos and thailand treating heroin junkies with marijuana. http://www.growhd.tv/video/Drugs-Inc-Amsterdam/7aca827bcd85ebc72fda1bd3d72a7b19 It prompted me to look further into the medical literature on cannabis. I found a few thing's i think can answer these question's and help many other's suffering from addiction. i am now comming up to my 1 year anniversary (november 17) of being off heroin completely , within the next 6 month's i plan to be completely off methadone at which time i will be completely off opiate's a feat i have never successful accomplished in the 8 + year's of using intravenous hard drug's. Now this isent a miracle cure but with addiction there are no miracle cure's, i may only have 1 year of being clean from heroin but i have been seriously trying for over 2 year's to get here. But the marijuana helped greatly i doubt i could have even gotten this far without it. and i finally found out why it helped which is something i feel i should share with everyone and is why i am describing this personal story.... my first clue came in the form of the grow session's video's from green house tho it took me a while to put the two together, i did rescearch on cannabinoid's and still couldn't find the answer then i heard franco and aryan talking about terpene profile's and said hey i need to look into these terpene's. I then went to Green House's website where they profile the terpene's of almost all of there strain's and looked specifically at white widow and just started going down the list of most abundant terpene's.... Once i looked into the second and third most abundant terpene i had my answer Caryophyllene!!!! this terpene is one of the most amazing in my mind, for one it's the only terpene that is known to activate CB2 receptor's and the only non cannabinoid that is known to do so. and lucky for me it has been shown to improve the symptom's of colitis but it also appear's that this terpene is the perfect natural dietary full CB2 agonist. Now this part need's alittle exsplaining. in around 2011 a study was done using a new potent selective CB2 agonist, a chemical called JWH133 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JWH-133) in the study Mice where given a drip to self administer cocaine after a period of time half of the mice where given this CB2 agonist JWH133. the result's where that the mice given the CB2 receptor agonist stopped self administering the cocaine while the other mice just continued on taking the cocaine. Here is a link to pubmed's publication of the finding's (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21785434) This study has amazing implication's, a scientist out of switzerland has been studying terpene's and specifically beta - Caryophyllene and he say's that Beta Caryophyllene is an even more effective selective CB2 agonist then the JWH133 as you can read here - http://gertschgroup.com/blog/entry/2198093/the-cb2-receptor-involved-in-cocaine-addiction So it seem's the CB2 receptor is directly involved in addiction and have an effect on the reward center of the brain. This is really fascinating when you consider that it can not only help those with one of the hardest addiction's to treat cocaine addiction but also in other form's of addiction as most addictive behavior is linked to the reward center and the regulation and production of dopamine. i can confirm the result's in the mice study from my experience with the widow family genetic's most specifically the White widow and GWS from Green house seed company. i would smoke the strain whenever i felt the craving for a fix and by the time i finnished the joint my craving's had completely subsided. This could be extremely useful in treating opiate addiction especially in the crucial few week's and month's after kicking the drug. but also in a number of other addiction's. On a side note, cannabis high in beta caryophllene might also be good for smoker's who report panic attacks from marijuana, Beta caryophllene is found in a certain type of black pepper. Black pepper is one of the ingredient's in an ancient cannabis antidote used to curb the intoxicating effect's of THC Ancient cannabis antidotes. (A) Lemon (Citrus limon). ( Calamus plant roots (Acorus calamus). © Pine nuts (Pinusspp.). (D) Black pepper (Piper nigrum) all of these item's contain Terpene's found in cannabis the lemon rind's have lemonene , the pine nut's pinene, the black pepper has both pinene and beta caryophyelle, and the Calamus root has mycrene among other terpene's . So in conclusion while i hope that no one look's down on me for my past, i feel that it's important that if we find some sort of medical use for cannabis to make it known. i know Cannabis helped me greatly during the hardest time's of my life and continue to help me to this day which is why i grow it and try to show other's how to grow it at home easily. i hope someone find's help with this info. i would like to hear more about Aryan's experience's with this man treating heroin addict's as it was part of what brought me to find this info. anyways until next time stay green!

    The flowers are growing, now is the time to get fat !! The first large leaves and old, are now yellow, good symptom !! That means that the plant is now consuming all its potassium! I do not do more fertilizers, from now until end of year, just water. That plants will get ugly, very yellow leaves and stains, but is normal and necessary. The best herb to smoke, is the least fertilizers has in its leaves !! @Dust Earlier this year, before harvest, I do pictures and will put the name of each picture, so everyone can see each variety separately . Now some photos of the day 41 of flowering !! Also, I'm Preparing the next round .... surprise !! I Germinando New Regular Seeds of Company ..... THIS will Be the bomb! Cheers, Jose

    Well guys, its a done deal! When I woke up today and had you guys concurence that it was time I was as excited as I was as a kid on christmas! I took all the girls down today, trimmed them up and have them hanging. I have to go and get some clothes pins tomorrow to hang up the other branches that I have on the ground in the room. I have a huge batch of buds and leaves to make some bubble hash and that will be a blast also. I will send weights once they dry. Looks like a good harvest and I have learned so much from everyone this grow. Its sort of funny that feeling you get each time you get to harvest, you feel like you've really accomplished something. Thank you all very much! Here are some harvest day pictures. Best Regards!

The Seedlings are now 2 weeks old and everything is great . The seed how dont pop up is dead RIP! I open up the jiffy pot for a look and the seed shell was like empty. My guess is that I kill it in some sick twisted way. Anyway I got 4 beautiful seedlings left and that´s all I need for make this show going . You can see rots trow the jiffy pot´s on all 4 Seedlings so after this update the Seedlings will enter the hydrosystem tonight . The tallest seedling is now 6 cm tall and 7 cm cross over, the smallest one is only 4 cm tall and 3 cm cross over. Everyone look really good very green small fan leafs . On 2 Seedlings we have mutant leafs on the first set but come normal on the second set. I preparer the hydrosystem whit water solution putting on air pumps letting the medium get wet so I can put in the Seedlings in there new home. So from tonight the Seedlings are getting a water solution whit a Ph of 5,5 and a EC of 1,1! I will feed only one time a day now in the beginning. More info about this next week. Im really excited now and only want to see how they turn out in this amazing environment that I have give them ! Please enjoy the photo´s of all the girls plus how they enter the hydro system .

    Hi again I come back with new updates, the flowering period has started very well at a general level. Plants look really healthy, they seem to be enjoying themselves! During the first days of flowering, they always become a little crazy, do not know if to grow or bloom ... so they do everything haha With the Bio Bloom fertilizer, I can appreciate the appearance of beneficial fungi. They are fungi in the substrate, white or white bone, very beneficial. You can research more about this type of fungi, for example in USA they are already "requesting". The plants looks very vigorous, even an explosion of roots. I have started using a new product from the BIO range of Green House Feeding, it's called BioEnhancer Bio Enhancer is a mixture of algae and humic acids, also includes tricoderma and bacillus. It is a compound of nutrients, acids and fungi beneficial to the substrate and to the plant. It is a black powder, one gram per liter of water is added and allowed to stand for 24 hours. Then, shake vigorously, adjust the PH and water with this. It should be used every two weeks. From the stage of growth to harvest. The water takes on an petrolium color, dark black. But do not worry, it's totally normal. The water only ups the EC 0.3 (the water that I use has 94ppm / after add this product has 262ppm) ie it had 0.2 and now has 0.5 EC The plants do notice, because the vigor and root development is incredible.

    Whiteflies Prevent: If there are whiteflies in your area, sticky traps will catch whiteflies quickly especially if colored yellow. Adult whiteflies are strongly attracted to the color yellow and will fly into traps before flying to your plant. Yellow paper covered in glue or sticky substance would work as well. Identify: Whiteflies look like its bitty white moths, the adults have wings. The easiest method of detection is shaking limbs on your plants, if tiny moths fly away from under leaves you got some whiteflies. Eggs are also attached to the leaves along the underside. These pests also suck liquids from your plant much like the spider mite. Whiteflies begin attacking marijuana plants from the top down and prefer to attack the weakest plant available. If you only find whiteflies infesting the top of a single plant, you've caught an infestation as it begins. Leaf damage from the whitefly almost exactly mimic the damage caused by spider mite attacks. The further damage progresses, the more strength and vigor the plant will lose. The stippling and spotting on leaves damaged by whiteflies closely resembles the damage done by the spider mite Eradicate Repression: The whitefly is a difficult pest to control given that all the adults fly. The best slowing measure you can employ is yellow sticky traps placed around your plants then toss them when full. This will only control adults who leave eggs and larvae behind constantly, traps will not eradicate your whitefly problem. Predators: Encarisa formosa is a species of miniature wasp that only attacks whiteflies. This small wasp does not attack humans and kills whitefly populations by laying eggs on whiteflies. When hatched, the wasp larvae eats its way through the whitefly, literally devouring it from the inside out. Slow and painful, just like they deserve. 2 predators per plant should do the trick if the infestation is caught before it becomes severe. Repeat every 2 weeks until 2 weeks after whiteflies cannot be spotted. Ensure you clean plants and grow area thoroughly if you have sprayed against mites or flies as these treatments will also kill this wasp. Manual Removal: Perhaps Mr. Miyagi could catch them all with chopsticks. . . . but I don't recommend you try. Spray: Easily smacked down with insecticidal soap, natural sprays, or pyrethrum. Prior to spraying, remove any leaves that are more than 50% damaged and burn them. If you can't start a fire anywhere, heating them to excess of 140F/60C will do the trick. Whiteflies die easily, however they lay eggs prolifically and love re-infecting damaged plant matter. Apply spray against the whitefly at 5 to 10 day intervals until 10 days after whiteflies have not been detected. copied & pasted from - http://www.420magazine.com/forums/problems-pests-disease-control/156568-guide-identifying-your-pests.html Peace Lams

    Hydrogen Peroxide and Horticulture By Bryce Fredrickson Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) is a clear sharp smelling substance very similar in appearance to water (H2O). Like water it is made up of Hydrogen (H2) and Oxygen (O2), however H2O2 has an extra Oxygen atom in an unstable arrangement. It is this extra atom that gives H2O2 its useful properties. H2O2 has been used for many purposes including cleaning, bleaching, sterilizing, rocket fuel, animal feed treatment and in addition many miraculous claims about its health benefits have been made. This article isn't about any of these; instead it will concentrate on horticultural applications. H2O2 is of great use for both hydroponics and dirt/soilless gardening. What Does Hydrogen Peroxide do? H2O2 is an unstable molecule, when it breaks down a single oxygen atom and a molecule of water is released. This oxygen atom is extremely reactive and will attach itself to either another O- atom forming a stable Oxygen molecule or attack a nearby organic molecule. Both the stable and O- forms will increase the level of dissolved oxygen. This is the method by which H2O2 is beneficial. Pre treating the water supply with H2O2will drive out the Chlorine many cities use to sterilize it. This will also degrade any pesticides or herbicides that might be present as well as any other organic matter. Well water can be high in methane and organic sulfates, both of which H2O2 will remove. Many disease causing organisms and spores are killed by Oxygen, the free Oxygen H2O2 releases is extremely effective at this. H2O2 will help eliminate existing infections and will help prevent future ones. It is also useful for suppressing algae growth. The free Oxygen atom will destroy dead organic material (i.e, leaves roots) in the system preventing them from rotting and spreading diseases. Over Watering Roots require Oxygen to breathe and low levels are the main cause of almost all root diseases. Both soil and hydroponic plants often fall prey to the same syndrome although it is rarely recognized as what it really is. Hydroponic crops often fail due to "root rot" and soil crops succumb to "over watering." The real cause of both these problems is a shortage of Oxygen at the root zone. In a soil system the soil consists of particles, a film of water on the particles and air spaces between the particles. When too much water is put into the soil the air spaces fill with liquid. The roots will quickly use up what Oxygen is dissolved in the water, if they haven't drunk enough of the liquid to allow air back in to the soil spaces they will stop working. In this situation roots will start dying within twenty-four hours. As the roots die the plants ability to drink water and nutrients will decrease, this will cause symptoms of nutrient deficiencies (mostly pale, slow, weak growth), and strangely they will start to wilt like they don't have enough water. It is easy to make a fatal mistake at this point and add more water. In a Hydroponic system the cause is a more direct simple lack of oxygen in the solution; this may be from inadequate circulation and/or aeration. High reservoir temperatures also interfere with Oxygen's ability to dissolve in the water. Temperatures above 70F (20C) will eventually cause problems, 62F-65F (16C-18C) is recommended. The same symptoms will appear as with soil plants but you can also check the roots. Healthy roots should be mostly white with maybe a slight yellowish tan tinge. If they are a brownish color with dead tips or they easily pull away there is at least the beginning of a serious problem. An organic, ‘dirt like’ rotting smell means there is already a very good chance it is too late. As roots die and rot they eat Oxygen out of the water, as Oxygen levels are even further depleted more roots die, a viscous circle may be well under way. Reduced Oxygen levels and high temperatures both encourage anaerobic bacteria and fungi. The plants may still be saved but you will have to work fast. How Hydrogen Peroxide prevents root rot/over watering. When plants are watered with H2O2 it will break down and release Oxygen into the area around the roots. This helps stop the Oxygen from being depleted in the water filled air spaces until air can get back into them. High Oxygen levels at the roots will encourage rapid healthy root growth. In a Hydroponic system H2O2 will disperse through out the system and raise Oxygen levels as it breaks down. Strong white healthy roots with lots of fuzzy new growth will be visible. This fuzzy growth has massive surface area allowing for rapid absorption of the huge amounts of water and nutrients needed for rapid top growth. A healthy plant starts with a healthy root system. How to use it. H2O2 comes in several different strengths 3%, 5%, 8% and 35%, also sold as food grade Hydrogen Peroxide. The most economical is 35% which we recommend be diluted to three percent before using, as at this high concentration it can cause damage to skin and clothing. When working with food grade H2O2 it is very important that you clean up any spills or splashes immediately, it will damage almost anything very quickly. This is extra important with skin and clothing. Skin will be temporarily bleached pure white if not washed cleaned. Gloves are strongly recommended when working with any strong chemical. Food grade H2O2 can be diluted to three percent by mixing it one part to eleven parts water (preferably distilled). The storage container should be opaque to prevent light from getting in and it must be able to hold some pressure. If three-liter pop bottles are available in your area they are ideal for mixing and storing H2O2. There are twelve quarter liters (250ml) in three liters, if you put in one quarter liter H2O2 and eleven quarter liters (250ml) water in the bottle it will full of three percent H2O2 and the bottle can hold the pressure that the H2O2 will generate. Three percent Hydrogen Peroxide may be added at up to three ml's per liter (2 12 tsp. Per gallon), but it is recommended that you start at a lower concentration and increase to full strength over a few weeks. Use every watering even on fresh cuttings. For hydroponics use every reservoir change and replace twenty-five percent (one quarter) every day. Example: In a 100L reservoir you would add three hundred ml's (3%) H2O2when changing the nutrient. You would then add seventy-five ml's more every day. Where to get it. 35% food grade: called food grade because it has no toxic impurities. Of course your local hydroponics retailer, whom you can locate over the web.(there may be shipping restrictions on high strength peroxides). The local feed supplier may have it in small towns. Prices range from fifteen dollars per quarter liter to eighty dollars a gallon. One gallon will treat up to fifty thousand liters of water. 3%5%, 8% Can be found at most drugstores or pharmacies, prices start at a less than a dollar for a one hundred-ml bottle that will treat one hundred liters. What to do if you already have root rot. In Dirt: Use peroxide water with an anti-fungicide and a high Phosphate fertilizer (9-45-15, 10-52-10, 0-60-0) for root growth. Or any other product with rooting hormone dissolved in it is helpful in regrowing roots and is strongly recommended. Water heavily until liquid pours out the bottom of the pot. This sound like bad idea, but it flushes out stagnant dead water and replaces it with fresh highly oxygenated water. Don't let plants sit in trays full of water, the soil will absorb this water and stay too wet. Don't water again until the pot feels light and the top inch or two of the soil are dry. In Hydro: Change your nutrients. Add H2O2 to the system. This will add oxygen and chemically eat dead roots. If roots are badly rotted and can be pulled away by hand you should pull them off. They are already dead and will only rot, causing further problems. Add a fungicide to kill any fungus that is probably present in the rotted tissue to prevent it from spreading. Increase aeration of the water, get an air pump and air stones, or more of them, for the reservoir. An air stone under every plant is usually very effective, but will require a larger air pump. Models that will do from forty to four hundred stones are available. Decrease the reservoir temperature, oxygen dissolves better in cold water and disease causing organisms reproduce slower as well. A good temperate range is 62F to 65F; anything above 70F will eventually cause a problem. It is also a good idea to remove any wilty plants from the system and put them on a separate reservoir so they don't infect plants that are still healthy. Summary The key to big productive plants is a big healthy root system and Hydrogen Peroxide is a great way to keep your roots healthy. It is a must to ensure the biggest best crops possible and to increase the chances of your plants thriving to harvest. Peroxide users will rarely lose plants or crops to root disease and will harvest larger and more consistent crops. Additional info Quote:How much to add US Standard 1.28*G/C= Liquid Oz's per day Metric 10*L/C= Ml per day C= % concentration of H2O2 L= Number of liters in reservoir G= Number of Gallons in reservoir Example: How much 3% H202 should I add to 7 gallons of nutes? 1.28*7/3=2.986 Oz's each day. Quote:Hydrogen Peroxide breaks down to hydrogen and oxygen within 3 days of being added either to a hydroponic solution or a soilmix. There is no residual with it, it becomes oxygen and hydrogen gas. It is not un-natural in the least, it forms the basic building blocks of life, its just a stable liquid form of oxygen. The additional chloroplastic activity as a result of the chlorophyll deeping will give you much thicker stems and larger leaves, with much deeper green. Yes the plants can absorb more light. the solution will also be much cleaner as the organic matter is oxidized to make...oxygen happy growing, john

    Hi mates, We started a new contest where you can try a known strain, amazing strain: White Rhino We can send 10 feminized seeds and BIO Feeding / Feeding to each grower interested, that meets with the requirements. We would like to make a little contest, about grow diaryes (the work performed and exhibited in the forum). The contest start January 1 and finish June 1 of 2018, you have 5 months for grow, bloom and harvest. Also we have some prizes for the best works 1st prize: IPad 4 mini 2nd prize: T-Shirt + Hoody + 3 Pack of seeds 3rd prize: T-Shirt + Hoody + 3 Pack of seeds The Grow Diaryes, should be initiated at: http://forums.strainhunters.com/forum/212-test-area-white-rhino-contest/ We will be given preference to users of this forum with more seniority, and / or grow diaryes. Limited: Limited participants. Excluded all people who requested seeds in previous editions, and did not do a grow diary, without exception. Do you want to participate? Reply to this post, write your answer: say me how many pots will you use. If you are selected, we will contact you by private message on the forum. IMPORTANT: You can start cultivating at any time, but should start your grow Diary in January. If you can not grow at this months, please not write to be a competitor. You can write.... Now! Cheers

    Hi @Jose.gh, I'd like to be considered as potential grower pls. Granted, I'm going to be way down on the seniority list, and it would be only my 2nd know-what-I'm-growing grow. My First know-what-I'm-growing grow should be finishing up (big tent) while I can get these 20% Sativa / 80% Indica White Rhino going in the propagation tent. 9 weeks flowering, plus 6 weeks veg, plus 2 weeks seedling = 17 weeks total (19 without optimum conditions according to Grow Log with Arjan & Franco). Ending 31st May means germination =< 1st Feb, or 2nd week of Jan, minimum. It works. Having found the forum fairly recently, I already had seeds from another seed bank but really want to try some GHS's, AND I'd really like to try BIO Feeding as well, AND since I'm doing grow diaries, I I'd like to do a grow diary on this forum using your seeds & ferts, so this comp' is right up my alley. Many thanks for the consideration and for the help on the forum. Regs, ShaggyGrower edit: forgot the number of pots. I'll be using four (4) pots in a 1.2m x 1.2m x 2.0m tent.

    Day 13 of seedling stage for DD & Nebula. Perhaps those two are now in veg - not too sure of the cutover from seedling to veg. 125w CFL still on 24hrs per day. Growth is motored along last (human-) night. Topped DD and Nebula (NVclosetmedgrower topped around this growth point). They're left with their cotyledons, their first single-fingered set of leaves, their first three-fingered set of leaves; their first two sets of five-fingered (perhaps the second is a seven-fingered) leaves.

    On Youtube, NVclosetmedgrower has created a fabulous 7-Part Video Growjournal, very good, very detailed with excellent grow-tips throughout the life of a cannabis plant (“Purple Chem OG”) from Germination all the way through Harvest/Drying/Curing. This presentation is so well done, explanations so very easy to understand, I find his videos are just the thing for beginners as well as for some experienced growers. I feel certain that even experienced growers will hear ideas from him that you hadn’t thought of before. He is clever and logical. If you have ever had trouble in your grows or if you want grow-tips to avoid so many common mistakes, Watch This 7-Part Series! I have liked his Series so much that I decided to outline each part for you below. Here are the titles and the current links to his presentation. Take notes; you’ll thank me later. All the following is provided for informational purposes only. Your results may vary, and the risk for you and your plants is entirely yours. The links are found at the bottom of each post, after the outline. (If the links are disabled, you can try to search Youtube for the titles to see if it has been re-posted under different links. Normally, if you can find one of them, you will have also found the whole Series. Or you can search for the author – NVclosetmedgrower.) I hope that you enjoy the Series. OK, Here we go: How to Grow Part 1, Seed Germination. The Link is found at the bottom of this post, below the outline. -Step 1: Hydrogen Peroxide (2-3 drops) in RO-water in Solo Cup for initial 24 hours in cup. -Step 2: Paper towel until Taproot extends -Step 3: Germination and transfer to Initial Cup of Soil -Soil-less Mix Description: Jiffy Seedstarter Mix with 20% Perlite, consisting of: Peat Moss, Vermiculite and Dolomite Lime, flushed with 2 cups of 5,5pH RO-water to reduce the alkaline effects of the Dolomite. One drop of CloneX(a cloning gel containing Vitamin B1 and Butyric Acid) applied 1 inch deep under where the seed/w-taproot will be placed into the cup. Maintain 70+% Humidity using a simple plastic bag over the cup. (A substitute for CloneX is Schultz “TakeRoot”, a powder which contains 0,1% Indole-3-butyric Acid. Obviously, one would need to determine whether a powder or a gel would be preferable depending on the method of its use. I have both onhand.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYIYFyFNMFg&list=PLfKFNZAfF1GxcVdCc4XPxMCKqmRiWVh71

    Heyo, So, first of all, i wanted to shout to the world (well, this at least) that i might have defeated spider mites! Big YAY! I've checked with a small light under each leaf, and havent's seen a single mite crawling. Ha! Motherfuckers. I'll continue the neem oil + soap treatment for at least another time, then will only spray as a soil drench. In conclusion, a clean enviroment, humidity spikes, and neem oil + soap worked against spider mites. Haven't worked for fungus gnats. They're back. I am scratching my head, i can't seem to figure out how the fuck they're forming. I've treated my soil with H202, Neem Oil; I've cleaned my bedroom, i've cleaned the grow room; I keep removing specs of soil or other things to prevent formation; I never open the windows (i have an extractor on the roof). How the fuck are they forming? Anyway, i decided to rest the pots after the flush for an entire week, and today i started using nutes again. I used 0.25ml BioBizz Grow per LT for both Strains, while i used 1ML/LT BioBizz Bloom for S3, and 1.5ML/LT BioBizz Bloom for S2. I fed S2 with 3 Liters, S3 with 2 liters. Runoff was 30% S2, 25% S3. S2 got a RO PH of about 6.3 (previous was 6.1 without nutes). S3 got a RO PH of about 6.5 (previous was 6.5 without nutes). Since the buildup is drastically decreasing, I'll keep using this low-nute solution until the plants show signs of deficiencies, like @Cannabissapean tipped me to. You can always increase nutes, but decreasing is a pain in the ass And now... Some photos! I took a photo of S2 outside the tent because i wanted to show you the color of her leaves. They're so Dark Green i'm wondering what could it be. I am also convinced now that S2 is an automatic. She started flowering on her own, and.. well, you'll see in the picture! S3: S2: And her main bud: She's so sticky and fruity.. This is gonna wreck me.

    Day9 12/12 and stretch has slowed and first fruit formation is starting to show so I'm going to say day 1 of flower ( I look at it best to be a week over than cutting too short) this is the first time I see the plants react to the light before I put on flower I used to open tent lights out and see them fast asleep! Now in flower you can see them fast asleep soon as lights come on but after half hour the leaves are praying for the light after 10hrs light they are getting ready for sleep time. Group photo is taken about 40 mins after lights on. I've got a sample bottle of terpenez as these are citrus strains I'm goinf to try it but a bit dubious about trying it on tangilope and candy cane and ice from the smell coming out of the unopened bottle smells like it will enhance the citrus smell but worried it will give say a Chem og a sweet citrus flavour instead of the gassy fuel. Would do side by side test but already making 3 different mixes is a chore in itself in the limited time I get to spend with them. Outside temps have dropped so in tent temp has levelled to 25c lights on and 20c night. Debating whether to mix hps with my led which will help raise the temps a little bit make temp difference between day and night a bit wider so may not be a good idea plus I've got a lot running off one circuit so don't want to over power it!

    Hello, Just keeping on top of things whilst I had a little time to spare. I re-potted the 4 GHSC strains into their final 11ltr pots as majority of them (3) needed watering far more often and I do not like paying daily visits to the outhouse for security reasons. Besides, I felt they needed a larger pot size as growth has been rapid indicating that the root system was well formed. The White Widow is still behind the rest (as you will see by appearance and root development) but it is coming on, The two Autos are flying and will stay in their existing pots (approx 6ltrs & 7ltrs) and I am very pleased with the other three, Kalashikova, Super Bud & The Doctor. KALASHNIKOVA AT 14 DAYS OLD TODAY (old pot, root system & new pot): SUPER BUD AT 13 DAYS OLD TODAY (old pot, root system & new pot): THE DOCTOR AT 14 DAYS OLD TODAY (old pot, root system & new pot): WHITE WIDOW AT 13 DAYS OLD TODAY (old pot, root system & new pot): I have not yet topped the 4 GHSC strains between the 4th and 5th leaf set as planned and 3 of the plants are at that stage of growth already but I am not totally satisfied that the 5th leaf set is developed enough and I will wait a few days. The same process will be carried out on the White Widow too but only when it is at the same stage (between 4th & 5th leaf sets) as the other 3 GHSC strains. The 2 Autos are 19 days old today and have very quickly turned back up after being bent over and most of the under shoots have all shot up well. Had a slight tweak with the layout again and the big CF, which is doing a great job as they are smelly now, has been moved from the center as I was not happy with the placement of the 2 LED units. I am happy with the placement now and the LED unit have plenty of space for movement. You will also notice that, now all are in their final pots, I will be very crowed when they all grow out so LST and training under the SCROG net has to be very thoughtful and precise. The SCROG net can be slid so final height is yet to be decided. You will also notice there is a lot of blue light on one of the pictures, this is simply because only the "Veg" switch was on just on one LED unit while I did the work (security reasons) and the other picture had no lights at all for a very short time. NEW LAYOUT & CROWDED: Feeding (nutes) has been gentle with just 1/8 strength Greenfuse Root and Greenfuse Grow which was fed today in their final pots. From now on, no more Greenfuse Root and only Greenfuse Grow will be fed at 1/4 strength then see what the plants tell me. I plan to introduce a very weak mix of Herculean Harvest (Nectar for the Gods) during late veg as recommended but this will all depend on the condition of the plants. Anyway, overall I am very pleased with progress and the only disappointment was not being able to top most of the GHSC strains today whilst in the tent but I will not chop too early as they are simply not ready to be chopped. Any comments, advice and guidance is always greatly appreciated and thanks for looking in.

    It means GRAMS PER WATT @Cindytherefore as an example, if you have 250watt and your final dry yield is 250grams (8.92oz) you will have achieved 1 GRAM PER WATT and likewise, if you got a final dry yield of 195grams (6.96oz) you will have achieved 0.78 GRAMS PER WATT with the same light. BUT, despite using the same lights, every grow WILL NOT be the same for anyone so it is impossible to determine yield in advance. Wet weights are pointless so no need wasting time on this too.....its just as pointless as trying to estimate the final yield at anytime before the plant is done to the point of totally dry and smokable. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news @Cindybut I do not think even the best growers in the world with optimal conditions achieve, on a regular basis, 459grams (16.39oz) PER PLANT. Those weights are "freaks" in my opinion but the do exist and in very few and fair between occasions. @ShaggyGrower, I usually grow 5 plants at a time with 5ish weeks veg. I have as many as 7 plants in there but 2 of those were "experiments" as there were purposefully abused so they kept tiny as I did not want to throw them because anything from them is more for my jars. VEG is 18/6 for 5ish weeks as I said and FLOWER is initially, 12/12 for about 4 weeks then decreasing by about 30mins per week so on week 8 of flower so I finish on a 14/10 light schedule with that being 14 dark and 10 hours light. For what I spend in electric it worries me nothing and I have no complains at all. It is 375watts when in FLOWER and LESS than that in VEG so it is nothing and I would have no issues running 375watts all day every day if need be. Light distance, VEG about 1mtr and FLOWER is about half of that....20" and with me that gives me enough spread to cover all the plants in my 1.2m floor area. Nutrients as always are Growth Technology's Ionic range for soil (Plant Magic Supreme) including, Ionic Grow &Bloom, Ionic Cal-Mag, Ionic PK and also Nectar for the Gods Herculean Harvest. No CO2, no need on small grows such as most like ours and very hard to get right, plus very costly if doing it right, so why the need when I for example am perfectly happy with my yield without it. Conditions are key and regular fresh air circulation is crucial and never vent into the same room. Like I said @Cindy, I would be leaving the 12/12 until the net is at least 70% then 12/12 and you will fill the rest up easy with both vertical and horizontal grow. Got to remember that you need the upward growth so that all those heads will end up looking like big thick solid buddage about 8" to 10" above the net. Last thing you want is an under-filled net with no more stretch left in the plants because you switched to 12/12 too early. 70% as above and if there, switch.

    That is totally dry weight of course, no point in even looking at weights when wet. It really serves no purpose at all other than to disappoint because its certain that you will lose 80% of that weight when it dries. All weights given are totally dry and you will find my grow dairies, with pictures, on here showing those exact grows relating to the weights I have given.

    Little recap of what i've understood so far, so everyone reading INCLUDING ME has a clear view of what's going on in the kitchen. I'm losing my mind a bit. Things i learned for a SOIL GROW - PH is super important. DON'T FUCK WITH IT, and respect schedules :3 - Drainage is also very important. Square and round pots, with flat floors, are BAD at draining. No matter how many holes you do on them, they keep sucking at their best. - Drainage should be done with perlite, or similar products. Use Clay Pebbles ONLY AND IF their PH is around 6.5, and only if you can't find Perlite. It is true that clay pebbles drain, but thet also retain SOME water. I figured out that they can also retain nutrients, so that can cause a nute block, or lead to a PH issue. - Time schedule. BUY THE F*****G TIMERS! Don't rely on you waking up AS I DO. Either way, i follow the schedule with alarms. - Light schedule. This is where things got interesting for me. Most of us use single lamps, with some extra cfl here and there. I use 8 led lights (4 x 35W 6500K; 4 x 45W full spectrum), and can regulate each lamp height, in an area of about 56x58x154cm (Yes, i fucked up building my grow box LOL). - Airflow is necessary, but can be catastrophic. Airflow needs to be uniform, if you buy a 130m3 extractor, make sure you buy 2 of those, for intake and extraction, indeed. Different extractors will only cause trouble. Make sure to have also 2 fans pointing at your buds: you don't want all the humid and hot air stagnate around them, or mold and other funky and fuzzy shit will appear. - Saucers. Oh, boy. Saucers are the worst, worst thing we could ever imagine to craft. They're flat, they're really hard to handle if they're, like, 1/3 full, and you'll STILL END UP SPILLING SOME ON THE FLOOR. Every-single-goddamn-time. This is gonna be a guide-in-a-guide. How to resolve the saucer issue (in my case): . Elevate the pots to a height of approx 30cm, with a self-standing net. . Place a square 54x54 tray underneath the net, to a height of approx 25cm. The tray also needs to be self-standing, and handcrafted. It needs to be inclined to some degree, so the water can flow to its center. In the middle, make a hole of 1cm in diameter. . Under the hole, place a GODDAMN BUCKET. . Proceed watering. - PESTS. Never give up on them. They WILL come back. Don't expect an easy victory, they're going to laugh at your hard work. If you have the chance, clean your enviroment like a mad man (or ma'am), and make very sure you've disinfected your soil. I didn't. They noticed. I didn't notice them. They thrived. I suffered. I fought hard, and at last.. They're still here, but in greatly reduced numbers, and much, much more stupid. Neem oil fucks the shit out of their brains. Spider mites wander around the leaves, without leaving webs, eggs, or other things. Sometimes they stop, then start walking again, then stop, but never bite. But neem oil doesn't kill them all. There are TONS of pesticides that do a better job in far less days. - And, at last, don't write updates when you had a bad day, or you're high, or both. This is what you'll end up with. What i'm going to do with this grow: - I've set S2 Harvest day at 18, or 25 November. - I'm going to change the feeding schedule for both plants, starting from now: . S2 will only receive water from now until harvest day. I want to be extra-sure that all the nutes have been flushed out before harvesting. Don't want my buds to taste too chemical. . S3 is going to have 2 weeks of low-strenght-flushing with water and very diluted cal-mag (i'll try to ajust this to approx. 0.25ML/LT), in preparation for the BioBizz Heaven (which should come around 18 November). I heard it is a good product that helps to eliminate toxins accumulated during stress periods, and OH BOY did i stress those girls. I'll then feed her regularly, but add the heaven once every 2 feedings. . S3 is set to be harvested 20 December, but she is looking so bad i'm having doubts she will survive the growth. She doesn't smell good at all, but if you touch her she does really smell of citrus. Weird, weird plant. What i think i'm going to harvest: - S2 will approximately weigh 20 grams dry, but she'll be the most potent among the 2. - S3 will approximately weigh 35 grams dry, if she survives this bad phase. What will i do after this grow: - I'll NUKE the place with everything. Alcohol, pesticides, cats, flamethrowers.. Whatever it takes to get rid of the infesting species that live in my room, without paying the rent! - I saved myself 30ish seeds from different weeds i bought while growing. Some of them have their own bag, because they came from really, really good tasting weeds. I am going to try to plant 2 reallygoodtastingweed seeds, and 2 mehnotsobadweed seeds. For a comparison, S2 came from a weed that tasted badly, but kept you high for hours. What i think is that it was either harvested too early, or cured very, very badly. S3 came instead from a good tasting weed, but i don't think i've ever had so many problems with one plant in my lifetime as with her. Maybe i forgot something in the way, but i've got to say i've also been extremely unlucky with pests. - I will choose the best looking out of the 4. - Meanwhile, i'll buy a pack of *any* indica seeds. I need them to be Low, but capable of melting your wires. - I'll germinate 3 of them, and see what i can get out of those 4 plants. Tomorrow i'll start the new schedule, and post some pictures. Cheers!

    Heyo, Small update. Since @Cindy brought up the idea of a metallic net underneath the pots, i've been working on building one myself. And i succeeded! It works! Of course, now i'm going to have to figure out how to collect the run off water beneath the pots when i water. But i managed to give the girls a good 10cm of height from the ground. This will help A LOT to create a flow in the small, cramped cabinet i built. Thank you Cindy, for giving MY cindy some fresh air with a fresh idea! I also crafted some reflectors. Well, i like to call these De-flectors, since they don't reflect much at all! But, in this way, my eyes will not melt each time i open this heaven, and now there's no excess light outside the cabinet (which is a big up against too-curious eyes). Anyway, a photo credit beneath: On the left, my Cindy, with an Iron Deficiency. Next feeding will be 0.5ML/LT cal-mag only, then resuming and alternating between BBG/BBB and cal-mag each 3-4 days. On the right, Rebecca. I don't know if my eyes are mistaken (usually not), but she is putting out colour! On the side of the bud leaves, she has this Blood Red tint, while is getting coloured yellow (not sick) inside, as if she was turning orange/purple. I'll post a photo tomorrow of this, when i feed her and have a better chance to look at her up-close. I know that if she shows colour ON the leaf (red, purple, blu-ish, etc) she has a good chance of being a Kush.. But what about her SIDES? I've never seen that before in my short life. Well, see you tomorrow. Peace!

    I recently cracked open a jar of weed I have been curing for 2years! It was amazing the high was awesome and it maintained the sweet smell. Its a elePhant stomper pheno Has a grapey chemy smell, reddish color, it doesn't look like much but it is amazing! I hadn't Smoked in 4months and last night I decided to smoke a bowl of it. Very happy with its results! Long story short it was part of a breeding project. I no longer have a place to grow and I am so sad not to be able to test the seeds.

    Some leaves now starting to turn yellow on one plant, most of them yellowing on one side first. Nitrogen deficiency perhaps. I think it's a good sign at this during-flushing stage and means plant is cannibalising it's own nutrients. Buds growing in thickness and length and new white pistels appearing. Seems there are multiple flushes of pistels. They were very dry and a wilting last night, so gave them a feed of 4ml Shogun Dragon Force + 1ml Sh' Sumo Boost x 11l. ph'd in at 5.6 (out was 6.8) tap water (, still not rained to collect RO water) has 320ppm (ec 0.640) and with those nutrients added ec in was 1.80 - high I think. 1l run off. Light is now 10.5/13.5.

    @Cindy, no need to work out measurement from the plant tops to the SCROG net. Remember, you will need good access under the net when these bushes become much bigger bushes. You have 4 small bushy plants, already topped twice (and thinking of topping again) which will produce already multiple prominent colas without the undergrowth that will shoot up when the net is in place. I would play it his way, forget the net for a week because you said you plan to veg for another 4 weeks so plenty of time. 1, Carry on with the existing LST really exposing the centre of the plant....opening it up so to speak. 2, Have a good defoliation of the lower growth, I remove about 1/3rd of all lower stalks and continue this gently but regularly. 3, Give them a week to 10 days of growing whilst adding/removing/adjusting LST ties until you can see the centre of the plant filling up with new growth coming to join the top canopy. 4, See where you are in 10 days and then think about the SCROG net and remember, you need a nice 12" to play around with under the SCROG net to the tops of the pots. This, ideally, needs to be a clear area, free of growth which will hinder and produce popcorn buds, so whist it is great to have small bushy plants you will need to get a bit of height to them and now is the perfect time. Play with them LST ties for a while longer yet and the SCROG net will have a nice spread of tops to float over which you can feed new growth into for the remaining 2 to 3 weeks veg. Just my opinion like and wish you well

    I am cancer free now after 8 years of bullshit with the Canadian and American medical systems. Never again will I put my life in the hands of such liars and profiteers. They are not trying to help you, they are trying to suck the money all out of you then kill you with drugs and "cancer fighting" poisons. I started to use cannabis oil after the second time I was told I will die in a few months. I started making it and ingesting about a half gram to a gram a day. Within 2 months my cancer started to retreat. (breast cancer) I am now cancer free and it only took 4 months with the oil. I was using chemo and radiation for years!! My doctor said he can not comment on the use of cannabis and its affect on cancer. Although he saw that I cured myself with it. I have since then cured a friend of mine that had stomach cancer. Stomach cancer surviers are rare. He took the oil for two months, the doctors said the cancer seems to be almost gone but we want to remove your stomach just in case. He didn't want to at first but the doctors scared him into the surgery. They removed the stomach and called him two weeks later saying his stomach they removed didn't have any cancer in it. That it was cancer free! This is after just two months of the oil. His stomach was full of cancer and they thought they had to take it out. when they didnt! So he is now taking the oil daily still as am I. So can you make this life saving cancer cure? Easy! You can make it alot of ways. Butane Honey Oil method works as long as you vacuum purge it. The best way and the way I do it is with naphtha as a solvent. Its expensive but the best. You can also use 99% ISO but I find that naphtha comes out more honey color and tastes way better! You can purge all this stuff in a vacuum which is the best way. Your going to be eating it so you better make it the best you can. Also do it with bud, do not use trim or shake. This is your life your talking about, CANCER! use buds! Oh when you BHO (butane honey oil) you have to decarboxylate (spelling???) the oil or it will not be good for digestion. So this is another main reason to use naphtha. See link below. Also watch Run from The Cure http://ricksimpsonhe....k-simpson.html Here is a good link on how to make it. It works, if you want to save your friends and family then tell them to stay away from the medical system. They want to make profit and not save anyone. They scare people into taking chemo and radiation saying "you got 2 months to live" if you don't take chemo. BULLSHIT! They want your money and they want you to die. You are worth more dead then alive to more people, sad but true. I have now given oil to 4 people I know. Stomach cancer, breast cancer, brain tumors, prostate cancer, all gone and cancer free! Don't take chemo, it kills more then saves. If you want my medical records I can show you the pictures of the cancer and it shrinking every month I was taking oil. I have pictures of my friends stomach as well. I was taking about a half gram a day all at once. Sometimes a gram depending on how much I could tolerate it. The idea is to consume/ingest as much as you can within 90 days Spread the word and save lives. NO ONE NEEDS TO DIE FROM CANCER! http://www.phoenixtears.ca/

    Much more tidy now with the revised hanging arrangements. No more direct CF fit to fan, included a bit of ducting and it has not made any difference in performance and noise levels which is very pleasing. Also, shortened the LED hanging wires to half the size. After all the rearrangements I have a lot more head height to play with and also far more hanging points. Plants are looking well too. Blue Treacle Autos are 13 days old from seed and now in approx 6/7ltr pots which they will stay in. Auto 1 is in a wide normal round pot and Auto 2 is in a much taller and narrower square pot. Just hope the roots of Auto 2 like the tall narrow pot. Kalashnikova and The Doctor are 8 days old from seed and in approx 3ltr pots now. Super Bud and White Widow are 7 days old from seed and in approx 3ltr pots now. White Widow is slower than the other GHSC strains after a shaky start but it will come on. Few pictures and you will notice the soil as dry as a bone. This was done intentionally and after the pictures they were all watered with a 1/8 strengh mix of Growth Technology's Greenfuse Root and Greenfuse Grow. What do you think guys and girls?

    That makes me appreciate my first 3WHITE LEMON trees in middle of flowering . It looks good, grows quite tall and looks like it will be decent in terms of supplying buds. So far no problems what so ever. All 3 seeds made it into rather uniform nice + healthy plants. Still waiting for the aroma to come thru. Anyway - what is not to like with genetics like this ? Predominently SLH with some ofthe lovel ywhite family genetics. Never grown EL NINO, only White Widow. Still not my favorite strain-SLH is the best HAZE besides Amnesia. I am more of a Cheese and KUSH lover. I need that ultra deeprelaxation only Afghani/Paki THC with it's tailor made medical qualities I love. On top of that I enjoy a strong head high better. But that does not mean I don't like the strong punch of those top Haze genetics - they deliver more are stronger and taste good, too. I am still surprised how many phenotypes the SLEX offers-the high though is always the same. Only prob is that some of them have a tendency to produce a couple seeds esp when I give them more that 70 days of fowering. Since the SLEX is °still atester's version I guess the White Lemon is more stable without any seeds..I'll see next month..

    Y ahora una foto de los esquejes Hay K+ en un contenedor de porexpan reciclado de una pescadería xDDD, de 80 litros Sand Storm, GWS, White Widow, Kritical + y Jack Herer. Todas menos una Sand que está en maceta de 50 litros están en Texpot de 50 litros también. No están llenos para ganar un pelín en altura y no exponer tampoco demasiado el sustrato. Arlita lavada de drenaje y tierra comercial de grow. Sin abono extra. Me estoy dedicando a doblar para ganar altura y frondosidad en los esquejes. Un saludote, espero que os gusten!!

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.
