  3. Hey guys in April I got a Blue Cheese auto bean from Barneys and put the beam in a glass of water on the evening of the 25th of April the next day 26th April the bean was at the bottom of the glass so I placed it on some damp kitchen roll on a dish and placed in a drawer, over night the bean popped and the tap root started to grow. On the 27th April I planted the freshly popped bean into a beeny 3 inch pot in some dirt with no nutrients in it for seedlings and then I watered it with 10 mil of water and placed in the grow tent along side the Jack Herer auto I have finishing. When I checked in the tent in the morning of the 28th of April the Blue Cheese had broke ground and I was pleasantly surprised to see 3 that she had 3 cotyledons. On the first node of true leaves she threw 3 leaves then on the second node she has thrown 6 leaves and it looks like she has topped herself. You can clearly see her main stem has split into twoand each is now building new nodes. so I won't need to FIM her I can just observe and enjoy the show. I have also popped the 2 Passion #1 beans I had left over from last year ready for my out door run this season, happy growing guys. Gasmeter Likkle more
  4. Hey aragon grower, this depends on the septic tank and how it discharges. Where we used to live the house had a septic tank the foul waste (sewage) from the toilets went into the septic tank which contains bacteria that break down the sewage, which then overflows out into a large brick box filled with stones which it filters through and then passes out into a drain which discharged into a stream about 100 metres away from the septic tank itself. In this case the run off that was dischaged into a stream and got carried away. In many cases the septic tank may over flow into a large land drain that acts as a soak away, basically this is a long trench with the drain in the bottom and it has been back filled with stone instead of dirt, so it acts as a filter and the waste water slowly soaks away into the surrounding land. So due to the fact that the waste liquid is discharged away from septic tank you should be safe to plant in the ground directly above the septic tank, I would not recommend planting in the ground where the sepic tank eventually discharges if it does at the surface like ours did and then ran into a stream, because it is still very hot the sewage won't be properly broken down, plus it may also contain water from sinks and the washing machine and dish washer, hence the term foul waste. Hope this helps Gasmeter Likkle more
  5. Hi HotSauceMC, this is an interesting question. There are a lot of variables involved here such as the strength of the herb, hit profile is it a heady/cerebral Sativa type hit or does it have an indica body stone with a mild high, maybe a total couch lock narcotic type hit, I prefer the Indica type profile, but Sative highs are nice too, its all good. Another variable is tollerance, I smoke every day, herb is part of mi life, like a wife, I don't smoke shag I just smoke herb, if I roll a 1 skin joint with a regular rizla I use maybe half a gram of bud, if a use two rizla (saturday night special pattern) or king size rizla I use about a gramme maybe more, depends how phat I mek mi spliff The thing is when I draw on a spliff I take three good tokes, I like to draw deep, by the time I exhale I can feel it and I carry on to build my vibe as I smoke the spliff then I am good for a few hours and I get on with my day and whatever I have to deal with. Herb is soul food. Gasmeter
  6. I got an email with a link to this video on YouTube about KLM's lost and found service which is brilliant, now that is a proper service, KLM put all other airlines to shame. The dog it obviously enjoys its job and the airport staff enjoy the dog being around. The best part for me is where the dog returns the kids teddy and gets a cuddle well cute Gasmeter Likkle more
  7. Hey g22, good question ha ha Yeah the dogs doing good in the neighbourhood, its dread an terrible... Gasmeter Likkle more
  8. Back in the late 70's I smoked some nice Afghan charas it had a very really nice smoke and strong with a very distinct smell and taste very perfume like but herby and earthy. I smoked Nepalese temple ball a couple of times in 79 and 81 which was definitely the strongest and best quality charas I have smoked, it has a very distinct tast and smell, the hit profile was very strong body stone and high that just faded away like mist as it wore off, when you take a draw on a spliff it is like silk, but soon becomes like a fire in your lungs you cannot contain, yet as you exhale its cool. I smoked lots of good Moroccan and Lebanese hash, I love Leb especially red Leb, I once bought an eigth of some Moroccan that was grey and looked like a pebble, but man was it strong it was proper couch lock material, but it looked weird, definitely not like you expect hash to look that was for sure.

  9. Great job man it was a really interesting grow I am glad you continued to update your journal to the end, I love how you have built your own lighting and the sound proofing. As they say necessity is the mother of invention, if you have the motivation you will find a way to achieve your goals. Enjoy your harvest and the fruit of your labour, it is well earned and deserved. Gasmeter Likkle more
  10. I&I stream shit loads of music from YouTube as I am working I man prefer to listen to full albums rather than single tunes or play lists and I have an eclectic taste in music from classic rock bands like Pink Floyd to any bands from the Canterbury scene from mid 1960's to mid 1970's as well as all types of reggae, strictly roots... Oh I man also like lots of delta blues stuff like Son House, Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker etc, these guys influenced all modern rock bands in the late 50's and early 60's the blues and jazz were the only intelligent alternative in that time. So my plants get to hear a heap ov sweet chunes. This is a great album by Midnite called Ras Mek Peace (Before Reverb And Without Delay) Vaughn Benjamin's lyrics are inspired, good words with deep meaning. Gasmeter Likkle more
  11. Hey guys I was on the Green House Seeds web site/store checking out different strains and decided to watch a test grow video when the page loaded usually you see an image taken from a frame of the video footage displayed within the video You Tube player but it was grey and fuzzy like a TV that is not tuned into a channel. When I clicked the video player to play the test grow video a message was displayed that the video had been deleted because it contained illegal content, today if you try to view a test grow video and click on the video the following message is displayed Video Unavailable This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been closed. You Tube are so full of shyte man, these videos have been on their platform for a number of years and now they decide the content is a problem delete them and then close the account. Those videos were a great reference point being able to see how the guys at the seed bank grow the strains was really useful, never mind the fact Franco was in all the videos, so sad.

  12. It looks like Google have updated their terms for YouTube, although Leafly mention that they are working with YouTube to re-instate their account and videos asap, I would be surprised if they are successful getting their account back up and running. I went to YouTube and looked at their terms and the community guidlines, but there was nothing in there about posting videos about growing Cannabis, plenty of stuff about porn and promoting violence, fake goods, scams all the usual stuff, but nothing really about posting videos about Cannabis and growing Cannabis. At first when I tried to play a test grow video there was a warning message that the video had been deleted because it broke guidelines, yet as I discovered there is nothing in their terms to say posting videos about growing Cannabis etc is not allowed. Anyhoo I have just been rooting around the YouTube support section of their site and low and behold under Ad Policy in the Restricted Products section we have Drugs & Drug Paraphernalia the wording is as follows Here is a link to the page This wording means there is just no wiggle room, despite the fact the wording appears generalised using the words drugs and drug paraphernalia this covers any substance, I must admit the succinct wording is elegant, probably written by a highly paid lawyer. It is shyte that Google have not got in touch with account holders to say they have updated their terms and let them know that their videos are in breach of the new terms and allow them the opportunity to create a new video, instead of deleting the videos and then the accounts. This to me clearly demonstrates that Google are having a purge and cleaning out any accounts that host restricted content, due to all the grief they have been getting recently about terrorist videos on YouTube not being removed quickly enough, so I cannot see them re-instating accounts and videos they have deleted, I hope I am wrong...

  13. Hi, thanks for the heads up man WOW thats amazing I thought they would be autos with them being in a small grow space at 60cm X 60cm which is 10cm smaller than my tent at 70cm X 70cm. So now I am really interested to how this grow goes. Gasmeter Likkle more
  14. Hi am I right thinking that these are autoflower girls? Pulled up a seat so I can get comfy and keep an eye on your grow I am interested in seeing how you grow 4 plants in a 60cm X 60cm tent. Gasmeter Likkle more
  15. Hi g22, yes your right the summer solstice is 21 June Basically I used the day light calculator to find out the length of the day on the 21st of August which was 14 1/2 hours, same this year then when I want to trick the plant into flowering I make sure it gets 14 1/2 hours light per day, so I can pop my beans in May veg through June so I can FIM it and it has time to grow all its nodes, then at the start of July I then make sure it only gets 14 1/2 hour day light per day. By the time it has been in flower a month it is the begining of August at this point if you just leave it out until it is dark it is only half an hour extra light so it shouldn't stress the plant and it won't re veg, or you could continue to make sure the plant only gets 14 1/2 hours light until the real photoperiod matches yours. At this point I leave them out until it goes dark then I lock them in the shed nice and safe, too many rassclatt thieves snorkling about round here. Gasmeter Likkle more
  16. To a plant into flowering outside you need to be able to control or manipulate the photoperiod or amount of light the plant receives, you can do this by either covering the plant or if you have a shed or greenhouse where you can place the plant in the dark. I have access to a shed in the back yard, so I can place them in the shed to manipulate the photoperiod, I have light proofed the shed as best I can, but there are still lots of light leaks, but despite this they are not an issue, it does not have to be absolutely lightproof and pitch black with no light leaks. Although it goes dark at night there is still a whole heap of light pollution from the moon, stars and air craft buzzing about even in the country side, never mind street lighting in towns and cities, so don't worry about making sure there are no light leaks, as long as you struggle to see properly once it does go dark outside it will be OK. I use this site to work out what the day length will be on the 21 August (summer solstice) in my location, which is usually about 14 and half hours, this is the date when the photoperiod or day length really starts to shorten. So when I want to trick the plant/s into flowering I put them in the shed so their day is 14 and 1/2 hours, then by the 21 August I can just leave them outside until it goes dark and by then they have been in flower for at least a month to ensure they finish before the end of September. You can see how I did this in my journal for last years outdoor grow here Remember also the advice that Arjan and Franco provide in the test grow videos about the stated flowering time for each strain has a bit of wiggle room of a couple of weeks, the time the plant takes to finish depends entirely on your growing conditions, so if they say 9 to 11 weeks if you don't have optimum conditions it will take 11 weeks or maybe a couple of weeks longer. Happy growing Gasmeter
  17. 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
  18. Hey guys I do not use Apple products but if people are still experiencing issues with the visibility of the text editor the problem is not caused by the text editor it is caused by the CSS applied to the theme to format the text editor, the editor does not use flash and JavaScript is not an issue, even mobile browsers don't choke on JScript today. The reason for the problem is the themes CSS to format the text editor, this is clearly demonstrated by the fact that scrolling to the bottom of any page on the site and changing the theme from Strain Hunters (Default) to the default theme for the forum software. So in order to solve the problem the CSS expressions used to format the text editor need adjusting to account for the mobile browser on iOS devices. I&I prefer the Default theme the design is clean and the colour palette is good and it is easy on the eye, the text editor looks how it is designed to look, black text on a white background makes the text easier to read and absorb, equally black text on a white background is what the end user expects to see, this is the usual experience, even in a text editor programme on a computer the interface will be black text white background as default, obviously as you create documents you can change the text and background colours. My advice here from a design perspective is don't reinvent the wheel, interferring with the look of the text editor is unecessary, because the text will be displayed in the page whatever colour is specified in the stylesheet containing the CSS expressions for the page text and background colours. The most salient point here is that unless you have some iOS devices and the time to test your theme to destruction as it were then, don't bother messing with the editor, remember the guys who are responsible for creating the editor have already done the heavy lifting and invested time and effort testing the editor to make sure it works as expected on all types of devices and operating systems people use today as well as legacy stuff on older devices. Not everybody is running the latest device or software, so we have to temper what we do and the things we produce bearing this fact in mind, we have to balance things to make sure we have an even playing field for all users, or it is as even as it can be considering the vast number of variables involved from different devices, OS's, browsers and even network connections, all these things determine the end users experience. Being consistenet is very important so making sure that if end users can change themes the experience is consistent, as I mentioned I use the Default theme and the chat tool bar ting is not available, for me this is not a problem I find it distracting and slightly annoying keep popping and pinging as it alerts me to something trying to tempt me to look and distract me from whatever I was reading or writing at that time, and yes I know I can just click on it and close it so it goes away. But by making sure everything works under all available themes this ensures that the end user has a consitent experience. With regards to CSS if you find you need to use !important in a style rule expression, you have an issue with specifity, this means basically that you are not being specific enough to identfy the element you are trying to apply the formatting to, even if for example you have applied an ID attribute to the element in question, where normally this works for you. The problem is there is/are other elements with ID attributes applied to them along with other elements with CSS classes applied to them which are parent containers to the element you are wanting to format or effect in some manner using CSS style rules. So to avoid using !important to force the style rule expression you need to be specific, this element is located deep within other elements within the DOM, so you have to help the browser to drill down the DOM (Document Object Model) to the element in question, so instead of using the ID or class attribute for the element in question, you need to list the ID's and classes of all the elements in the document that contain that element. If you work with JavaScript think of it the exact same way you would if you were writing some logic to manipulate an element within the DOM, it is the same thing your just using a different technology to interfer with the same thing. So if the element is located within 3 other elements you need to specify their ID's and or classes so instead of writing a style rule like the following #myElement { color: red; } You would write .elementOne #elementTwo .elementThree #myElement ( color: red; } In the rule above we identify the hierarchy of containing elements in order, drilling down to the element we wish to apply the style rule to in order to affect it some how, in this case make any text red, due to the fact the element is deeply nexted within 3 other elements using it's ID myElement alone may not be enough to help the browser identify the element within the DOM and do your bidding. When I am writing JScript or jQuery I always visualise myself looking down the DOM from the perspective of the window object, remember you cannot get higher than the window because the browser window is the ultimate container, your document or web page is rendered within the browser window by the browser, it is a hierarchy of nodes in a document tree, so applying this thinking makes working with CSS easier the same rules apply. Hope this helps. Gasmeter Likkle more
  19. Man you gotta luv the images of the germinted seeds they are absolutely awsome That is some brilliant photography, great job Jose
  20. 23 October 2017 The Kings Kush bud has now dried and I have removed the bud from the stalks and then I placed the bud into a Kilner jar. On the day I harvested the Kings Kush I did not water her, because I had only given her water for the previous 2 weeks. I was watering and feeding every 4 to 5 days, when I harvested her it was 5 days after I last watered, and as I mentioned in my last post I decided to trim off the sugar leaves and trim up the bud when I harvested, rather than wait until it was dry. I think it is worth the effort to trim at harvest, this is a messy process whenever you do it, after the herb is dry or before, your still going to get resin on your hands which aint a bad thing, but I think having less leaf material on the bud definitely helps it to dry out quicker and more evenly. The yield this time was less than the first run at 3oz of bud, 1oz of trim, sugar leaves and beeny buds from lower stalks, plus 3oz of stalks which I will use to make some Canna butter and use that to make some brownies. All the dried Kings Kush bud in a heap. All the Kings Kush bud in a Kilner jar. Kings Kush trim. All of the Kings Kush stalks. The smell of the Kings Kush bud is a rich earthy, herby aroma and the taste when smoked is the same, and when I harvested her there were plenty of amber trichomes all over the buds, it is fast hitting with a good high and body stone that is very strong, and a bit couch locky, I love it. The 3rd Kings Kush bean popped and I then planted it in a teeny pot but it never broke ground, so I ordered 3 Jack Herer auto beans from the guys at and I have popped one of the seeds and it is now a few nodes tall so I will have to start a new journal. Thanks for all your input and advice during this grow, happy growing guys. Gasmeter Likkle more
  21. 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. Kings Kush foliage close up normal light. I will update the journal next week with a progress report, the 2 Passion #1 beans I popped have broken ground and they are both thriving. Happy growing guys Gasmeter Likkle more
  22. 18 October 2017 It is now the middle of week 24 and the Kings Kush auto is ready for harvest today. Here are some images I took this afternoon when I harvested her. Kings Kush side view under normal light. Kings Kush top view under normal light. Kings Kush lower bud normal light. Kings Kush top colas normal light. Kings Kush top bud close up normal light. Kings Kush harvested hanging on clothes rack to dry. Kings Kush trim all the sugary fan leaves, lower stalks and beeny bud. The yield this time is not as good as the first run, there is definitely less bud on the stalks. This time I have trimmed the sugar leaves from the bud, rather than trimming them off when the bud has dried. More updates to follow soon, happy growing guys. Gasmeter Likkle more
  23. 14 October 2017 End of week 23 and the Kings Kush auto is getting close to harvest now the number of amber trichomes is oncreasing all over the plant from the lower branches to the top of the plant they are pretty consistent now, so she is only getting water, and she is consuming nutrients from fan leaves which are going yellow. Here are some images I took this afternoon. Kings Kush in the grow tent under the LED. Kings Kush side view under normal light. Kings Kush top view under normal light. Kings Kush top of plant normal light. Kings Kush lower cola normal light. Kings Kush top cola normal light. Kings Kush bud close up normal light. On the 10th of October I started to germinate the last of the 3 Kings Kush seeds and on the 12th of October I planted the seed. Most of the pistles are now brown and there are now loads of amber trichomes all over the bud everywhere on the plant so I will harvest in the next few days. More updates to follow soon, happy growing guys. Gasmeter Likkle more
  24. 08 October 2017 End of week 22 and the Kings Kush auto continues to quietly build bud. Here are some images I took this afternoon. Kings Kush in the grow tent under the LED. Kings Kush bud close up under the LED. Kings Kush side view under normal light. Kings Kush top view under normal light. Kings Kush bud on stalk normal light. Kings Kush bud close up normal light. Those pistles are getting brown now and the number of amber trichomes are increasing nicely, so she only gets water now no more feeding. More updates to follow soon, happy growing guys. Gasmeter Likkle more
  25. 01 October 2017 End of week 21 and the Kings Kush auto has grown some more fan leaves and filled out as she continues to build bud. More of the pistles on the bud are slowly turning brown and I can also see some amber trichomes all over the plant as well. Here are some images I took today. Kings Kush in the grow tent under the LED. Kings Kush side view under normal light. Kings Kush top view under normal light. Kings Kush bud on stalk normal light. Kings Kush bud close up normal light. More updates to follow soon, 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.
