  1. 18 September 2018. There was a golden autumn (Indian summer). Daytime air temperature in the area t + 20 ° C, at night is cooler than t + 7 ... + 10 ° C. Early in the morning, often all clouded by fog - it is visible as droplets of water soar in the air. Humidity is different and can fluctuate around 30% ... 100%. --- By the way, I already had one very late season, in 2015. Being engaged, at that perfect time, by one selection project, tested seeds of a sort Blueberry, late F6 generation (genetics Dutch Passion). Crossing, before the F5 generation was conducted, "according to one common characteristic" - the original Blueberry phenotype from DP, and the phenotype was really good in its time. To obtain seeds of the F6 generation, plants of sativa-dominant phenotype with the main common features were chosen ... Closer to the point. So, among the plants of the Blueberry F6 generation, one interesting specimen was discovered: a sativa-dominant phenotype, with a distinctive feature - late flowering. The plant has fully matured in 10 weeks - closer to the middle of November. The photo was taken before harvest (November 13, 2015). Everything depends entirely on the weather, if it allows, Neville's haze plants will be able to stand just like the Blueberry F6 in 2015 - which would be just fine. --- Neville's haze plant # 01 Age: the 150th day; Flowering: 14th day; Height: 115 cm; Over the past week, plant # 01 has grown by 1 centimeter. "Indica-dominant phenotype with slow flowering". You can say - the perfect phenotype of Neville's haze from GHS for the room. The plant will not grow very much, except in width, but at the beginning of flowering, in general, beauty - there is no growth in the stalk, like plants with sativa-dominant phenotypes. Although of course, with all this, there is one significant minus - a slow flowering. --- Neville's haze plant # 02 Age: the 150th day; Flowering: 28th day; Height: 165 cm; The increase over the past week is: +5.5 cm, ~ 0.8 cm per day - the plant slows growth. The phenotype of plant # 02, especially now, during flowering, is very similar to the classic Mexican marijuana phenotype, "one of the parents" of Neville's haze. If it is true, the genetics of the Mexican variety is dominant in plant # 02, it is not at all surprising that the signs of the beginning of flowering were discovered so early - on August 19. --- Neville's haze plant # 03 Age: 150 days; Flowering: 14th day; Height: 158 cm; The increase over the past week is: +10.5 cm, 1.5 cm per day. --- The lower branches of plant # 01 were "stretched" so that they did not overlap the light. In contrast to the same "training" with plants # 02 and # 03, with plant # 01 it was necessary to tinker - it was too thickened with second-order branches, which were naturally circumcised. Not all, there are only those who have a place under the sun. --- It is probably unusual to see such a slow flowering in marijuana, especially those who constantly grow the indica-dominant or generally auto-flowering varieties. But what is, that is - this is how all three phenotypes of Neville's haze blossom from GHS on the 44th latitude in the Primorsky Krai. As you probably already understood, waiting for miracles from plants # 01 and # 03 is not worth it. Theoretically, if you grow such a phenotype as in plant # 03 on the street through clones, then the blossoming for 2-3 weeks, it is possible and will allow the plant to mature normally, naturally for the 44th latitude. The phenotype of plant # 01 has a very slow flowering (for 44th latitude), although it is indicative dominant. So if you grow such a phenotype on the 44th latitude, then at least for this you need a heated greenhouse. --- Superphosphate is over. Now the composition and concentration are (per 1 liter of pure water): sodium humate - 0.3 ml, oak ash - 1 tablespoon. --- Next update is on September 25, 2018.
  2. September 11, 2018. The rainy season came to an end and finally good weather settled. As before, Neville's haze plants from GHS make me happy with the slow onset of flowering. But, at last there was a specifics. It became clear which phenotype, and how, the flowering begins. The main goal of the 2018 season is to look at all varieties (phenotypes) of the Neville's haze variety. To look at their behavior in the conditions of the street on the 44th latitude, then to clone the plant with the desired phenotype for the next season (2019), already specifically for the crop. The case is made - twigs of the second order (clones) were sliced on September 10, from plants # 02 and # 03. Why was it decided to clone only plants # 02 and # 03? If everything is clear with plant # 02 (signs of flowering were discovered on August 19), plant # 03 was cloned because the plant showed signs of flowering, although the blossoming starts faster, according to my observations. Plant # 01, I did not clone because of the slowest start of flowering and the poor structure of the lateral branches. --- I will say right away that I was very fortunate. Since of the 3 seeds, the Neville's haze variety, three plants with different phenotypes have grown. That is, if you believe the Internet resource en.seedfinder.eu, then I was lucky to see all the 3-type phenotype of Neville's haze from GHS together, namely (information with the above resource): Phenotype No. 1: long, stretched, fast blooming, sativa-dominant; Phenotype No. 2: long, stretched, slow blooming, sativa-dominant; Phenotype No. 3: long, compact, slow blooming, indica-dominant. --- Neville's haze plant # 01 Age: 143 days; Flowering: 14th day; Height: 114 cm; Plant # 01 stopped growing from the beginning of flowering. And besides, the plant has the slowest start of flowering. --- Neville's haze plant # 02 Age: 143 days; Flowering: 21th days; Height: 159.5 cm; The increase over the past week is: +9.5 cm, ~ 1.35 cm per day. --- Neville's haze plant # 03 Age: 143 days; Flowering: 14th day; Height: 147,5 cm; The increase over the past week is: +8.5 cm, ~ 1.2 cm per day. --- The lower branches of plants # 02 and # 03 were "stretched" so that they did not overlap the light. By the way, it was noticed that wild bees quite often fly around plants # 02 and # 03 - apparently they are attracted by a sweetish aroma emanating from plants during flowering. Concentration of fertilizers has not changed and so far remains the same. --- Next update is on September 18, 2018.
  3. 4 September 2018. --- Neville's haze plant # 01 Age: 136 days; Flowering: 7 days; Height: 114 cm; The increase over the past week is: +2 cm, ~ 0.3 cm per day. With the beginning of flowering, plant # 01 almost ceased to grow - it's interesting! --- Neville's haze plant # 02 Age: 136 days; Flowering: 16 days; Height: 149 cm; The increase over the past week is: +9 cm, ~ 1.30 cm per day. At the second week of flowering, the side branches of plant # 02, began to stretch and fall down - the phenotype, is becoming more like the original (meaning the main phenotype of Neville's haze from GHS). In fact, the whole plant is stretched, but the side branches do it a little faster - it looks chic. Reminds a noble lady in a gorgeous dress, at some pompous event. Neville's haze is slowly gaining momentum. After 2 weeks of flowering, on the tops of the side branches of plant # 02, the flower cups are already clearly visible. --- Neville's haze plant # 03 Age: 136 days; Flowering: 7 days; Height: 137 cm; The increase over the past week is: +8 cm, ~ 1,1 cm per day. --- Plants continue to actively build branches. To the main branches of the first order - there are no questions, but here the growth of the second-order branches grows chaotically - down and to the sides. So, such branches of plants growing inward, will be removed - there will be no sense from them, but energy is still taken away from plants. About circumcisions and the like. Regarding any manipulation with the plant - I rely on the wisdom of the Oaxaca Indians (Mexican state): ”The philosophy of these farmers is that a normal, healthy plant which has not grown the best product for human use. To develop a potent product, the plant must be tortured by environmental extremes, unusual pruning methods and the technique of crucifixion which will be explained presently.” (link to the original text - https://www.icmag.com/ic/showpost.php?p=1812833&postcount=1209) --- I fertilize all the same and everything also. --- The next update is on September 11, 2018
  4. August 28, 2018. The rainy season in Primorsky Krai is coming to an end. Although, the beginning of September will be rainy - as usual. 3x Neville's haze fem (GHS) --- Neville's haze plant # 01 Age: 129 days; From the appearance of stigmas: 77 days; Flowering: 1 day; Height: 112 cm; The increase over the past week is: +7 cm, ~ 1 cm per day. Neville's haze plant # 02 Age: 129 days; Flowering: 9 days; Height: 140 cm; The increase over the past week is: +11 cm, ~ 1.5 cm per day. Neville's haze plant # 03 Age: 129 days; From the appearance of stigmas: 77 days; Flowering: 1 day; Height: 129 cm; The increase over the past week is: +10 cm, ~ 1.4 cm per day. --- The dosage of fertilizers has been changed: 1) Nitrogen humate - 2 ml / per liter of water; 2) Superphosphate (aqueous solution) - 25 ml / per liter of water. --- Off-topic. A young Amur skid, today (August 28), was visiting the plants. Next update is on September 4, 2018.
  5. August 21, 2018. It's raining season. --- Neville's haze plant # 01 Age: 122 days; From the appearance of stigmas: 70 days; Height: 105 cm; The increase over the past week is: +7 cm, ~ 1 cm per day. --- Plant # 01 - markedly distinguished. At once, the structure of branches attracts attention - they grow not just horizontally, but at a negative angle, slightly lifting the tops toward the sun. On branches of the first order - twigs of the second order grow well. All this looks - very unusual. Noticeably the difference between the leaves - the "fingers" are narrower than those of the leaves of the other two plants. As for any odor in the plant, it appeared this week and is very weak - it is felt only close. What exactly smells, it is still difficult to describe. --- Neville's haze plant # 02 Age: 122 days; Flowering: 2 days (at the beginning of flowering [August 19] - 68 days from the appearance of stigma); Height: 126 cm; The increase over the past week is: +12 cm, ~ 1.7 cm per day. --- Neville's haze plant # 03 Age: 122 days; From the appearance of stigmas: 70 days; Height: 119 cm; The increase over the past week is: +10 cm, ~ 1.4 cm per day. --- The fourth week has passed since the plants # 02 and # 03 began to exude around themselves - the aroma from different fruit blends. --- In general, looking at plants # 02 and # 03 from a distance, it seems - clones, but this is not entirely true. There is a certain similarity only the structure of branching, and the color and shape of the leaves are different. --- Plants received food 2 times over the past week. The composition of the aqueous solution is the same (humate of nitrogen 4 ml + superphosphate 12 ml per 1 liter of water). --- Next update is on August 28, 2018.
  6. Hello, ShaggyGrower! Yes, 3 seeds were viable, but I was still happy, as at that time, and now. As seeds are stored at the dealer in a warehouse in Russia, I have no idea. But I store the seeds in the fridge.
  7. Hello, g22! Here is a very good description of the climate of Primorsky Krai in Russia: “The climate is temperate monsoon. Winter is dry and cold, with clear weather, there are often thaws on the coast. Spring is long, with frequent temperature fluctuations. Summer is warm and humid, in the summer months there is a maximum amount of precipitation, in some areas up to 90% of the annual amount. There are typhoon outlets, which sometimes inflict enormous damage on infrastructure and agriculture. Autumn is warm, sunny and dry. In summer the south-east winds from the Pacific Ocean prevail, and in the winter north-west, bringing cold, but clear weather from the continental regions.” – Wikipedia (ru).
  8. August 14, 2018. All plants have 115 days from germination, 63 days from the appearance of stigmas. --- Since the planting of plants - a week has passed and the following has been found out: Firstly, additional supports are extremely important for plants, otherwise, a good rain with wind immediately bends them to the ground; Secondly - the distance from the ground to the first branches, which was left during the landing, is clearly not enough. During the rain, the "dirty" splashes falling on the branches, brought dirt on them. Which, incidentally, was not washed off immediately. --- All that needed to be done at this stage was done: 1) The plants are tied to wooden stakes driven into the ground; 2) A pair of lower branches on each plant is trimmed. --- Plants, for the past week, were fed 2 times, in the form of an aqueous solution: nitrogen humate + superphosphate (dosage is the same). --- Photographs of plants (separately): Neville's haze 1st plant Height: 98 cm. Neville's haze 2nd plant Height: 114 cm. Neville's haze 3rd plant Height: 111 cm. P.S. If someone is interested, then the next update will be August 21, 2018.
  9. Let's go… Seedlings of three Neville's haze plants grown from feminized seeds from «Green House Seeds» (on August 7, 2018, in all three plants - 108 days from seedlings, 56 days from the appearance of stigmas). --- Almost from the beginning of life, and to the middle of July, the plants had a light period of 18/6 (day/night). During the day, the plants stood outside, under the sun, unless there was a strong wind or rain, and in the morning and in the evening, as a "sun", the plants had a 55 watt 4200 (Navigator) lamp. Photos before boarding in open ground (August 7, 2018): Neville's haze 1st plant Height: 96 cm; Interstitial: 5 cm. Neville's haze 2nd plant Height: 113 cm; Interstitial: 6,5 cm. Neville's haze 3rd plant Height: 110 cm; Interstitial: 5,5 cm. --- Seeds ordered from one of the official Russian dealers, in an amount of 5 pieces (one package), of which 3 were sprouting. The seeds were germinated, as written on the GHS website. April 16, 2018 April 16, 2018 April 17, 2018 April 17, 2018 April 18, 2018 --- All three Neville's haze will be grown in the usual way. Place of cultivation: 44° north latitude, Russia, Primorsky Krai. Neville's haze has a rather long flowering period and for complete maturation it is necessary to grow it on more southern latitudes. But even on the 44th latitude, it is quite possible to get an excellent "smoking material". --- To, at the time of flowering, not only mature plants, but also compact ones, it was decided that the plants would grow from shoots to planting in open ground in containers with a volume of ~ 3 liters. But even in "such" volume, the plants continued to grow actively, and at this point it was decided to remove the large leaves that were on the central trunks of plants - this decision slowed, but did not stop the growth. At the end of July, two weeks before disembarkation into the open ground, the substrate was washed in which the plants were located. The substrate in which the plants grew was made by itself: peat (rubbed through a 1x1 cm grid and calcined) 1 part, cow bark (rubbed through a 1x1 cm grid) 1 part, river river "by eye" and a glass (on a bucket of substrate) oak ash . The prepared substrate was spilled 2 times with a solution of "Phytosporin-M". --- In the land, at the site of planting, in the autumn of 2017, black peat was added (it is unknown when, but lies, under the open sky, for more than 11 years, before on the peat, mushrooms grew on their own), 1 kg of superphosphate (nitrogen - 6%, phosphorus - 26% + sulfur, calcium, magnesium). --- Organomineral fertilizer for plants: 1.) Nitrogen humate (N 3% / P 1.5% / K 3%) - in the early stages 2 ml (per 1 liter of water); As you grow up, it takes up to 4 ml. If you give less, it shows a shortage of nitrogen. 2.) Superphosphate solution - 8 tablespoons (granulated superphosphate N 6% / P 26% + sulfur, calcium and magnesium) per 2 liters of boiling water; working solution of 15 ml, and above, per liter of water. --- Outdoors (August 7, 2018) To avoid overturning, in case of strong wind, rain or wind with rain, the plants were planted with the deepening of the root neck: Neville's haze 1st plant Height: 90 cm; Neville's haze 2nd plant Height: 102 cm; Neville's haze 3rd plant Height: 100 cm. --- P.S. I really hope that in general terms, everything will be clear ... for those who become interested.
  10. I registered here a year ago, but I write only now .. I am from Russia (44'N, Primorsky Krai).

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.
