  1. 42 days of 12/12 and all going fairly well. All 5 plants are really gaining weight now.
  2. indoor grow

    WOW @Cindy, 1,164 REAL LED WATTS is massive consumption. Hope you get the rewarding buds you should be getting on the GPW scale and not just wasting the electric. I run approx 375 REAL LED WATTS when flowering and achieve (strain & growing method dependent) between 0.88GPW and 1.33GPW which keeps my jars fully stocked growing only 8 months of each year.
  3. indoor grow

    Hi @Cindy Good luck with your grow. 2700 watts of LED for flower, how many REAL LED WATTS will them LED units be pulling from the wall when in flower? I would imagine something like 700 REAL LED WATTS, would this be about right?
  4. Hi @Cindy For seedlings (1 week) and early vegging (2 to 3 weeks) I use 1 x ViparSpectra 450w with just the "veg" switch turned on which puts out approx 100 REAL LED WATTS. For late vegging (2 weeks maximum) I use the 1 x ViparSpectra 450w with veg and bloom switches on then when switching to 12/12 I also add 1 x Go-Grow V1 (formerly Virgin Borneo) Pro. When I fully switch to 12/12 the combined power of both these LED units is approx 375 REAL LED watts from the wall. I have a few other LED units but the ViparSpectra 450w & Go-Grow V1 Pro combination work well together so I will stay with them for now.
  5. Thank @Cindy. Just a little update. 33 days of 12/12 and they are doing well. These pictures were taken last night just before a much needed water and feed because they were all desert dry. You will notice the droopy leaves but they very quickly burst back to life after the water and feed. They are drinking 3ltrs each every 3 days now with the feed still at 1/2 strength but I will be increasing it to 3/4 strength next feed. The plant in the middle has a slight problem which I think can be sorted out with a touch of CAL-MAG which was given last night. As always, comments are more than welcome.
  6. Good news and lets hope all the spammers of their porn sites and dodgy cannabis salesmen have been banned so this site can be relevant and sensible.
  7. 24 days of 12/12 and all these girls are really coming on fantastically. Glad this is my last documented grow as it's like playing to an empty arena! Anyone care to comment or is this all just a waste of time?
  8. 20 days of 12/12 and they are coming along well. Just to recap, we have 2 x White Widow x Cheese by GHSC (at the front) & 3 x Jack Herer FAST by Seedsman (in the middle and the back) under 1 x ViparSpectra 450w & 1 x Go-Grow V1 Pro (formerly Virgin Borneo) which, in total, draws approx between 375 to 380 REAL LED watts from the wall. Nutrients are still only at 1/2 strength and they are Growth Technology Ionic Soil Bloom, Ionic CAL-MAG and Nectar for the Gods Herculean Harvest. The CAL-MAG will be stopped soon and replaced with a tiny touch of Growth Technology Ionic PK Boost for the rest of flowering. My routine is the same regarding watering, they are given 2 consecutive nutrient rich watering, but only when the soil is absolutely desert dry, then every 3rd watering is just water ONLY with nothing at all added but with a lot of run off so it is like a mini flush. All seems to be going well, what do you think?
  9. 2 weeks of 12/12 with plenty of bud sites forming and all going well. The stretch of 2 x Jack Herer FAST (the 2 fimmed ones) has caught me out but no issues and I can cope with them.
  10. Hi, I have grown Kalasnikova before from GHSC, indoor, and it gives a decent yield and is a very nice smoke. A lot of others have complained about the genetics but I WILL be growing it again because I had success with it and I have more Kalashnikova seeds in my inventory. As your your plants, good look but it appears you have the pots sizes mixed up. Those bigger plants are in very serious need for bigger pots and the little ones should have been started off in smaller pots then potted up into bigger pots as the root system gets established. Just a little advice but those big ones REALLY need much bigger pots unless they will become root-bound, deteriorate and cause you no end of problems.
  11. These plants seem to be doing well in their new environment. They are still in veg and the 3 x Jack Herer FAST (SEEDSMAN) are obvious to identify from the 2 x GHSC WW x Cheese because they are about 2 weeks older. They plan is to veg for anther week then flip them to 12/12. I have been "playing" with all the plants....1 JH topped and 2 JH fimmed. The other 2 GHSC WW x Cheese have been left to grow naturally but all have had some very serious defoliation inflicted upon them and also all 3 of the JH FAST have really had some extreme LST. They are on very minimal nutrients (less is more theory using 1/8th strength only) and with a 18/6 lighting schedule. Until today they were all under just 1 x ViparSpectra 450watt (approx 190 REAL LED watts) but earlier I did add my Go-Grow V1 (formerly Virgin Borneo) Pro which again throws out approx 180 REAL LED watts. I will see how they go and if, when it comes to flowering. and the buds look fine I will stick with these LED units until harvest or if I think I need to add more LED units I have another 3 units to choose from which are just sat on a shelf ready for action. So far so good considering I have been purposely holding them up until my flower tent was vacant and now it is that is their new home and they appear to like it. Anyway, what do you think if anyone cares to reply for a change?
  12. Although this feels like I am speaking to myself I may as well document it. The 2 GHSC WW x Cheese have been re-potted into their final 11ltr pot just as the 3 x Seedsman Jack Herer FAST had earlier in the week. No SCROG this time, just LST and super-cropping if needed. All 5 are still under 1 x ViparSpectra 450w but with both the veg and bloom switches turned on which puts out about 180 REAL watts and they will veg for another 2 weeks or so then flipped to 12/12 with additional LED unit(s). No need for the tube heaters now also so they have been switched off and I get around 28c hottest and 22c coolest but I can play around with these numbers via the controllable intakes and extraction as they are only running at about 40% very max. There is even very noticeable growth in just the 4 days since my last update which is encouraging.
  13. Well, time to call it a day for this grow because the last 2 plants have been chopped. Now I have cleaned the tent and my new plants are in my flowering tent. All in all, the 5 x GHSC White Widow x Cheese produced just over 14oz (397 grams) combined of lovely frosted bud but the 2 x CBD Crew Girl Scout Cookies, which looked great and bulky, ended up being disappointing. I was expecting these 2 plants to give over 3oz each but when dried they only produced about 3.5oz (103 grams) combined. The total for all plants was 500 grams exactly which is 17.85oz which I am very happy with considering there was far too many plants in the tent and these were flowered under just 375 REAL LED watts making 1.33 grams per watt. The smoke is lovely and the GHSC strain is very tasty and so very very sweet. In fact it is so tasty you could smoke it all day long but if so, expect to get nothing done as it is potent. The jars are full for the time being and thanks all for taking time to read this dairy.

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.
