  1. A few more pics. Didn't get a chance to upload them yesterday. Appoliges for the photo quality. My cheap light and ballist don't play nice.
  2. I totally agree. My thermostat just died so I'm running off a timer to get by. I did try that another time and had it sitting on the floor in the corner but my tent is only a meter by meter and it affected the parts of the plant closest to it. When you say( hang) you mean hang it up. As in about the height of the light. I'm open to giving that a try.
  3. During my last grow I was having a bit of trouble with condensation in my tent. An idea came to me so I thought I'd share it with everyone. A simple but as it turns out an effective one. A cheap fan heater blowing on the air intake line does wonders with removing the condensation, also during the colder nights it helps lift the temps. Hopefully it might be of use to someone else.
  4. Just a few pics of my indoor grow.
  5. I know what you mean about the pets, I feel like I'm always doing battle with them. Well it's all about finished. It has been a long and unusual season. The day time temps are still above thirty and the nights aren't much better. Usually I would be worried about an early frost before there finishing but not this year. They haven't seemed to finish as well this year, maybe weather related. They did suffer a lot of insects this season, not really a surprise as they were the only green living plants in my yard everything else is dried up. I always happy to get anything at the end. I'll get some seed and a smoke so it's been a different type of season but we all made it to the finish. I've even decided to do a cross with another strain I was gifted this year (origin unknown) so maybe I'll be tinkering away at this for a few more years. It couldn't hurt to freshen up my genetics a touch. I might even do another journal on the new cross. That's about it. So thanks everyone who had a look. I hope these little ladies where a different and interesting watch. Roo78.
  6. Hi all, Time I gave an update. They have all chosen a sex so I have four female and one male a perfect ratio. Surprisingly the small stringy one isn't male but female, I wouldn't normally keep any that are struggling but this time I'll let it go. I found a universal measuring stick so I can give a better indication of the size of the baby's. I'm pretty sure every one knows what a 2lt coke looks like Apart from the organic soil base, I've been bumping them up with some liquid fertilizer. Dynamic lifter. blood /bone /manure Sensi pro. Bio deisel Canna. PK 13/14 single dose at start of flower. General hydroponics. Cal/Mag This extra feeding is only at a low dose for each moon phase. Rain water is required every second day due to the weather and the well drained soil. This is the part of the season I love. Fresh flower smell. Magic. Roo78
  7. Hi All, Time for an update. Things are still going well, all the little baby's are growing at a steady pace. The original four I show everyone are now only three, the chooks made that's choice for me. I have some photos of the other's I put in a separate plot as they are doing slightly better than the other one's I had originally planned to use for this journal. It's mostly likely due to the fact that are in the plot that I had planned to use last year so but didn't so it had an extra year of preparation. The old adage of don't put all your eggs in the one basket seems to have worked. I just watered so don't worry about the pool, I find a hollow in the plot is the best way to control water feeding. I hope everyone transfered into the new year with no major mishaps. Roo78 HI Shaggygrower, I hear what you're saying mate and got me thinking so I went thru an old photo album just for personal reference. I found an old photo from close to twenty years ago. I do love my organic soil mixes and your right they can sometimes be a little tricky to gauge. But surely I haven't been cooking them for twenty years 🤔 Roo78
  8. Hi Shaggygrower, I eagerly await your posts. I like 70/30 coco/pertit and am keen to see white rhino and bio feeds combined. Very best for the grow. Roo78

  10. So I have transferred all the seedlings out of the pots into my guerilla grow spot. I selected four of the ten to use as the examples for this grow journal, I'll grow the others out in another plot. After reading other articles I've come to realize that I'm not really up to speed with providing information about my grow. Please bear with me as I don't have any social media of any kind and this is the only forum I participate in but I'll do my best to evolve and answer all questions. I've always been a KISS kind of grower so I've never gone out my way to delve into the technical side of grows. This grow is no different it's a basic soil grow. Chicken manure Sheep manure Lawn clippings Char coal Local soil - sandy loam Dolla mite lime Slow release fertilizer - fruit / citrus variety I did most of the prep thru the winter composting and ph checking so hopefully it will work out. At last ph check it was sitting around 6 so I'm happy for the moment. Had a little trouble getting the photos to upload but I had a win.
  11. Hi, Cannabissapean and Shaggygrower. I will transplant all of them out into there own space in a little while. I like to start them off in small pots of potting mix until I'm sure they'll survive. The potting mix I use is a compost based one it has an unknown amount of organic material mixed in as well as coir and water crystals, slow release fertilizer. I like to use the variety marketed for fruit and citrus they have a slightly higher potassium and magnisium content. I've been using these mixes for years with good results. More for convenience then any thing. PH varies a little from batch to batch, I haven't actually checked this lot. Run off is high. If I grow them out in pots. small pots need checking daily larger pots 3-4 days, I don't mind if they suffer a little bit of drought, they are weeds. The triple cotyledons are something I've had for a while but I don't actually know anything about them and I'm interested to know if there are any other strains that have the same characteristics. As they develop the true beauty and unique style of the plant and leaf will become apparent. I look forward to sharing them.
  12. Hi community. Last year I had a failed attempt to raise my outdoor grow, so I would very much like to start again and show everyone my strain. I have always known it as Passion Fruit not because of the flavor but due to its leaf formation. Here are a few pics of the seedlings that will hopefully become beautiful ladies. This strain is a slow grower, it's never in a hurry to do anything, so my updates will be some what spaced apart. Enjoy Roo78
  13. Cheers Cindy I normally water when the lights first come on so that might be working in my favour. I'll have a look into dehumidifiers. The environment around my tent might be tough to control. Roo78
  14. Hi community. I'm interested to see if there's a way to reduce or remove the condensation from my grow tent. Without doing it by hand with a towel every day. I'm in week two of 12/12 cycle, lights on at night off thru the day, so I'm keen to get on top it early. It's just going into the cold part of the year so temps are fluctuating between 05-25 Celsius. This is the first time I have ran the room in the cold weather normally I run it earlier and have issues with over temps. Roo78:-?
  15. Can male pollin be saved for future use? Doe's anybody see the value of storing male pollin? For a long time I never gave the thought of saving male pollin for a later date but with the year I've had. I was thinking of ways to secure my genetics for future grows. Seed is the obvious choice but what of pollin, a good male plants genetics in my opinion is as good as any females. I've heard people say it can be frozen, true or false? I haven't particularly researched this topic I'm just putting it out there to hear what the community view is. Roo78 :-? Staring at the ceiling contemplating.

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.
