  1. Hey guys time for an update, it is now the end of week 19 and yesterday it was cloudy and sunny in the morning but the weather forcast was for showers at lunch time, so about 11.00am I took some photos of the plants and then I gave them both 9 litres of water each and checked the PH of the run off which was 6. Within minutes of watering the plants it started raining so I quickly moved them into the shed under the flourescent lights with the large fan running to move air around, due to the fact the rain was light showers I was able to leave the shed door open to help keep the humidity down and I left the fan running over night as well. Here are some images I took yesterday. Both of the Passion #1 gals outside in back yard Close up of the top of the stalky plant. Top of the leafy plant. The plants are now ready to harvest I can see plenty of amber trichomes so after lunch today they go the chop and I harvested both plants. Both Passion #1 plants harvested bud hanging on stalks drying. Passion #1 charas. I have had a little smoke of the charas in a single skinner with some fan leaves (I&I quit smokin shag) and it has a nice vibe, a good strong body feeling, but the high is an elevation of conciousness, with charas the hit is like a silk thread that slowly and gently vanishes away, its the cream of the crop. So there was 650g of fan leaves, stalky produced 750g of bud and leafy produced 600g of bud, but remember these weights are wet and the bud is still on the stalks at the moment while the bud is drying, in 7 days I will strip the bud off the stalks and trim as required and then I will put it in Kilner jars, I only have one at the moment so I need to go and buy and few more. In total bud and stalk for both plants is 1350g or about 26 ounces, so I should end up with just under a pound of herb once dried I am well chuffed. Updates to follow happy growing guys.

  2. Hi Slimjim thanks for the kind words man Yeah the bud rot was a shame, but it hasn't been a show stopper and I have definitely learned from it. I agree removing fan leaves would have helped with air flow, I will definitely do this next season if the other two beans turn out to be leaf monsters. I could also tie the stalks down to pull them away from the main stalk, or pull the top of the main stalk over so the nodes then spread and grow upwards like mini colas. I will definitely take your advice Cannabissapean and strip some of the fan leaves on the Kings Kush to let in more light. Gasmeter Likkle more
  3. So it is the end of week 18 and since I found a couple of buds with bud rot a few days ago I have been keeping a close eye on the top of the leafy plant and I found a couple more buds had also been affected so I snipped them off and I removed the bud from the nodes directly below that I was not sure about just to be sure. I have been quick drying the bud on the radiator as I did before and it has a decent vibe they are close to harvest now. So last night I gave them both 9 litres of water, the weather today has been mostly sunny with a bit of cloud and tomorrow will be the same. Here are some image I took yesterday of the top of the stalky plant. Top of stalky plant. Close up of bud on top of stalky plant. The weather over the next few days is forcast to be cloudy and sunny so I will keep and eye on them and see how things go harvest time is close now. Happy growing guys. Gasmeter
  4. 14 September 2017 We have had a few very wet days since my last update and I have had to keep both plants in the shed under the flourescent lights. Today while it was sunny I took some photos of the plants and as I checked them over I found some bud rot on the leafy plant right at the top of the plant. So I removed the affected buds and saved the bud above it which was not affected and cleared as much debris from the site as I could. Site at top of leafy plant after removing affected bud. Salvaged bud from above and below affected bud site. Although bud rot is shit, with every negative there is a positive, this does provide the chance to test the bud. I quick dried the bud on the radiator and it is OK the vibe is nice when I look at photos of the bud I can see that the trichomes are mainly very milky with a few starting to go amber so it provides a nice high with a good body hit. Happy growing guys. Gasmeter
  5. Time for an update to catch up again. 10 September 2017 End of week 18 and both of the Passion #1 plants are still doing great and the bud is quietly ripening.

  7. End of week 19 and the Kings Kush auto is doing great and she is continuing to build those buds. She is still on a 12/12 photoperiod and tonight I gave her just 4 litres of water it has been 7 days since I last fed and watered her. A few days ago I adjusted the pipe cleaners I have used to tie down her stalks to make sure the tops of the stalks are 12 inches below the LED. Here are some images I took yesterday Kings Kush in grow tent with LED off. Kings Kush side view normal light. Kings Kush top view normal light. Kings Kush stalk and bud normal light. Kings Kush bud close up normal light. Oh yeah I smoked the last of the bud from the first run of Kings Kush last week it was sweet. Updates to follow soon. Gasmeter Likkle more

  9. Hi Cannabissapen, yes Trounce is a natural organic pesticide the information states it can be used even the day before harvest safely. You can find info about Trounce here on their web site http://www.growthtechnology.com/product/trounce/ It cost dear at £25 for 500ml or half a litre, but you create a solution with 50ml per litre so it goes a long way. I have been keeping on top of keeping the back yard clean and tidy especially where my plants are, our neighbour has a holly bush and a lorel tree that are constantly sheding leaves so I keep my eye on this and clean them up so that ants can use the leaf litter to farm those beeny flies that make a sugary sap the ants love to eat. There is a hole at the bottom of the wall behind the shed which the ants have used and one near the front corner of the shed between paving slabs and I have poured water down the holes and none organic pesticides down them in the past, but they always came back, I sprays some Trounce into each hole 2 weeks ago and no ants since. I think keeping the garden clean is the main thing I have only had to spray the plants two or three times because I spotted a few flies and the caterpillars the other day, the plants are only a couple of weeks off harvest now so hopefully I won't any more pest problems.

  10. The bud at the tops of both plants is pretty dense so when they are in the shed I have a large fan moving the air around in there. And I am making sure they don't get rained on too, I really don't want them to get bud rot at this point in the proceedings. I found two caterpillars on the compact leafy plant the other day so squashed them and then I sprayed them both with Trounce bug spray and really misted all of the bud to kill any bugs trying to set up home on me collie. I think the stalky plant will be ready to harvest first then the compact leafy plant, it is a lot easier to keep an eye on the stalky plant than the leafy one when looking at the foliage checking for bugs thats for sure.

  11. 02 September 2017 End of week 17 and both of the Passion #1 plants are still building lots of bud. Here are some images I took today. Passion #1 plants outside in the back yard. Passion #1 stalky plant. Passion #1 stalky plant top cola. Passion #1 stalky plant top cola close up. Passion #1 compact plant. Passion #1 compact plant top cola. Passion #1 compact plant top cola close up. The aroma from the bud on the stalky plant is definitely strong when you sniff the bud it is almost cheesey and quite overpowering, but if you touch the bud and then sniff your fingers you can appreciate the depth of the aroma and it is not as pungent, yet the aroma on the compact plant is not as strong, but it does seem to be getting stronger and I am well happy with both plants so far. More updates to follow, happy growing guys. Gasmeter Likkle more

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.
