  1. 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
  2. Getting the ball well and truly rolling for the 2017 outdoor season. Strain 2 X Passion #1 = Dutch Passion Growing Medium BioBizz All Mix Perlite Plant Feed Canna Start = seedling Plant Magic Soil Grow = veg Plant Magic Root Stimulant = veg & flowering Plant Magic Soil Bloom = flowering I ordered 3 Passion #1 beans and they arrived on Wednesday 10th May so I immediately placed 2 of them onto some damp kitchen roll on a saucer and placed them in a drawer to germinate. Both beans has split and tap roots were visible by Thursday evening, so on Friday afternoon I planted them in 3 inch pots in some soil for seedlings that contains no nutrients and I am keeping the soil damp giving them ten squirts of water 4 times per day and they are both thriving. Here are a couple of photos I took this afternoon. Passion #1 seedlings in normal light. Passion #1 leaves normal light. At the moment I have got both the Passion #1 girls in my little grow tent under a Mars II 400 LED vegging along with a Kings Kush auto. When they get a couple more leaves I will start to give them some Canna Start to help them along the Kings Kush is definitely liking it. Happy growing guys Gasmeter Likkle more
  3. This is my second indoor run of Kings Kush autoflower. Tent Mars Hydro 70cm X 70cm X 160cm Grow Light Mars II 400 LED The grow light is the equivalent to a 250W HPS Strain 1 X Kings Kush Autoflower = Green House Seeds Growing Medium BioBizz All Mix Perlite Plant Feed Canna Start = seedling Plant Magic Soil Grow = veg Plant Magic Root Stimulant = veg & flowering Plant Magic Soil Bloom = flowering On Friday the 28th of April I started to germinated the second of the 3 Kings Kush beans and placed it on some kitchen roll in a shallow dish and sprayed it with water to make the kitchen roll damp then I placed it into a drawer, I kept the kitchen roll damp and on Sunday the 30th of April the bean had split and there was a tap root. So on Monday the 1st of May I filled a 3 inch plant pot with soil for seedlings that contains no nutrients and planted the newly germinated seed about 5mm below the surface of the soil then sprayed the soil with water to make it damp, then I placed the pot on a little saucer and placed them in the corner of the grow tent with the Kings Kush from my last indoor grow. Baby Kush 03 May 1 week old. Kings Kush 12 May 2 weeks old. These are a couple of photos I took today. Kings Kush side view normal light. Once she had grown a couple of sets of leaves a week ago (12th May) I mixed up a 2 litres of Canna Start and started to feed her 10ml of Canna Start and water just before the light goes out in the evening and during the day I still give her 10 good squirts of water 4 times per day to keep the soil damp and she is doing great.

  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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. The weather has been a mixture of sunshine and showers in the morning then clearing up by lunch time. Here are some images I took today. Passion #1 plants outside in the shed.

  8. 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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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
  13. 26 August 2017 End of week 16 and both of the Passion #1 plants are growing well and building lots of bud. On the whole the weather has not been too bad and we have been getting more sun than rain, usually a day or two of sunshine then a day with showers or heavy rain all day, on these days I keep both plants in the shed under the flourescent lights with a large fan moving the air around.

  20. Hi Cannabissapean thanks man I am pleased with the way she is shaping up.
  21. Hey Cannabissapean thanks for the kind words inner luv for that. Yeah they are both definitely flowering now, the compact plant is a few of days behind the gangly one which is more vigorous growth wise. With regards to the shed being light proof, no, not 100% there are quite a few leaks, but it works I started to manipulate the photoperiod on the 15th July. In order to trick them into flowering, you need to find out what the day length will be in your location on the 21st August which for me here on the Fylde coast in the UK it is 14 and a 1/2 hours, the 21st of August is when they normally start to flower due to the day length. Thanks and praises to Gordon for this tip how to trick a plant into flowering and this link https://www.timeanddate.com/sun/ So when my alarm goes off at 6.30am I go outside to the shed if it is raining I switch on the two 4 foot flourescent lights, if it is dry I drag them outside into the back yard, then 14 and a 1/2 hours later at 9pm I either drag them back in the shed or just switch off the lights and lock up for the night. End of week 12 and start of week 13 both of the Passion #1 plants are doing great and I am well pleased with their progress so far. I watered them both and fed them with Plant Magic Soil Bloom and Canna Rhizotonic root stimulant on Friday 29th July and tonight I sprayed them both with Trounce bug spray, so far I havent had any bug problems by simply keeping the grow area clean and tidy. Here are some images I took yesterday. Passion #1 plants outside in the back yard. Passion #1 gangly plant top flower close up. Passion #1 compact plant top flower close up.

  22. Hey Cannabissapean, feel no way man, no problem. Yeah I agree the Kings Kush is very leafy, with the first one I just let her run to see how things went, but this time I decided to trim her and open her up and let more light penetrate the plant so she does not waste energy on buds that are not getting much light close to the main stalk low down the plant. End of week 12 and start of week 13 I fed and watered her on Friday 28th July with 2 litres of Plant Magic Soil Grow and Canna Rhizotonic root stimulant and tonight I gave her 2 litres of water with just Canna Rhizotonic root stimulant. She has filled out nicely since I trimmed her, I will set her on a 12/12 photoperiod in the next couple of days and get her to flower. Here are a few images I took yesterday. Kings Kush in grow tent. Kings Kush side view. Kings Kush top view. Kings Kush foliage close up. More updates soon, happy growing guys. Gasmeter Likkle more
  23. 25th July 2017 Week 11 and both Passion #1 girls are doing great last Friday 21st July as I was watering and feeding them both I noticed that I could see the roots through the sides of the pots. On Monday 24th July I nipped to a local hydroponics store and got a new bag of dirt and some Canna Rhizotonic root stimulant unfortunately they did not have any Plant Magic Root Stimulant in stock, so that I was ready to repot both plants the following evening when they would be ready for a drink. The following day I bought 2 new larger rubble buckets then I repotted both plants in the new rubble buckets I gave them both 2 litres of water containing just Canna Rhizotonic, I had fed them 3 days before. I also noticed that both plants are definitely flowering I can see lots of pistles on the top of the gangly plant more so than the compact one. Passion #1 girls in back yard. Passion #1 gangly plant. Passion #1 gangly plant flower on top of plant. Passion #1 gangly plant roots. Passion #1 gangly plant new pot. Passion #1 compact plant. Passion #1 compact plant flower close up.

  24. 22nd July 2017 Week 10 both the Passion #1 girls are growing well and I am really pleased with their progress so far they are so vigorous and I can now clearly see from the point where I FIMed each plant all of the new nodes on the main stalk are staggered and the nodes on the rest of the stalks, which shows the apical tendency has been broken in both plants.

  25. 14th July 2017 Week 9 and both of the Passion #1 girls are doing great the growth rate is amazing I think they have built enough structure now so tomorrow on the 15th of June I will start to manipulate their photoperiod and reduce it to 14 and a 1/2 hours per day which is the day length on the 21st of August, in order to trick them into flowering and get a head start on when they would normally start flowering by a month.

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.
