  1. Maybe not all, but the majority of us, if we could, we would be selling it. We would almost all be in for the money. Whether she does it or not for real, it's her business. Verba volant, scripta manent, but "i'm in for the money" and "i'm selling right now" are quite different sentences. Just sayin'..
  2. Hey Cindy, I've spent the last 8 minutes trying to write a good reply, ethically and friendly. But then i remembered this: "Power is money, money is power"
  3. Holy shit. That is an insane view!
  4. It does matter. Sal isn't wrong on some points. But thanks for saying that. Ofc i'll do as i want: otherwise i wouldn't be here. Ofc i'll follow ghs nute schedule, but the lights, spacings, airflow etc is all my decision. If i don't try this, i'll never know if you can do it, or not. Imo, it's possible, but not easy. Anyway, i repeat, thank you kiwwi for your kind words and encouragement <3 Wish i could send you a couple chilos of my kiwis, i've just harvested 40kg heheheh.
  5. Read some of the old posts, it's all written there. My space, my lights, everything. I'm readying up.
  6. Thank you Cindy. Ofc i'll stick around, your plants are insane! I can't wait to see the amazing buds on your girls. I wish you could try a blunt out of my stash. S2 is a calm smoke, while the other activates every cell of your body. It's been a long time since i've felt so dynamic.
  7. So, it has come the time to share my current experience. I already grew some (21 plants, actually) weed 7 years ago. I was 17 back then, and had no idea how to grow, what would've come out of it, how many mistakes could the plant forgive, and so on. I was a stupid kind of guy, i guess. In my first grow, my "mother" took 6 long months to get out of the Veg phase. We started it in February, and she went into flowering only half way into August. I say we 'cause i wasn't alone doing it, of course. I had my uncle, back then, but that's another story. Anyway, that mother (Cherry was her name) yielded me approx. 130 dry grams of good weed. Not too strong, not too weak, just the right high to stone you on your couch, tilt your head 50-60° degrees while watching tv and die off. Second grow went better, same seeds, 600g dry weed from 3 mothers and 17 clones (all of them rooted, we were amazed). Gotta say i smoked my part (300g) in 2 or so months. I smoke a lot. I like smoking. Back to us, in november, 2016, i started growing tomatoes, lettuce, habaneros, carrots and such, cause i wanted to get rid of a bad and long cycle of depression i had going on for several years. I thought that growing stuff might have helped me, and it did. So, in June, a friend of mine (which is a volunteer, currently working in Tijuana) brought me 4 seeds he found in a "delicious" weed he had bought. I told him many, many times i didn't want to grow again, i didn't like taking risks etc, but he somehow convinced me to sprout them. Just to see, you know, what would come out of it. And here i am, 1 month or so after their sprouting, writing this topic. I'll specify a bit what is my current equipment: - 4x 6500K 35W Led Lamps - 4x Full Spectrum 45W Led Lamps - 1x Hortifan 15cm fan - Some sticky paper here and there - BioBizz AllMix soil - BioBizz Root Juice, Grow and Bloom as nutes - H2O2 as root enhancer and bug killer - Neem Oil as bug killer - A lot of love. And passion. And munchies. Containing: - 2x Tomato clones - 1x Watermelon sprout - 3x Friend's bagseed doing well. - 1x Small aloe clone. The Aloe serves as O2 / CO2 regulator. I found out that Aloe Vera has an inverted process of Air consumption. While weed "eats" CO2 during the day, and expells it during the night while absorbing O2, Aloe Vera will do the exact opposite. The tomatoes are just there because why not, i just like eating tomatoes. The watermelon.. well, it resides in half half-liter bottle (250ml), i just want to see how she develops. I'll transplant her in soil someday, don't worry :3 Following, from first to last, the photos of my bagseed subjects. SUBJECT 1 SUBJECT 2 After this one, it got transplanted, but the photo is in another format so i'll post another one later SUBJECT 3 Since these last photos, it has passed a week or so. I am currently trying to resolve 2 problems: I have fungus gnats flying around, and as you can see there are some sticky papers here and there. I am already applying H2O2 and Neem Oil cures. Second problem is a PH unbalance in all the Subjects, but mostly on SUB 1. I haven't watched the PH since the first day. I didn't care, i'm paying the price for it. Also, the place has been without ventilation for 20+ days. It has been only recently that i brought in a fan. Temperature stays around 28 in working hours, 24 at night (82-75 F°). I'll update the topic as soon as i receive my PH meter and feed my babies. Until then, have a good time. A presto.
  8. Hey'all, Let your plants chill a bit w/ these cool tunes. Fresh discovery for me, maybe a classic to somebody. Damn that voice melts my interiors.
  9. Hey'all, This has been a relatively long journal. I've enjoyed the tips, the guidances, and the experience that came out of this. I wanted to thank everybody who participated and helped me growing these 2 beauties. With this said, here's the last picture. On the left, S2. On the right, S3. Below the jars, the main colas. S2 weighed approx 30g. S3 approx 40g. Total harvest stays around 70 dried grams. Thank you for sticking with me and my mad ideas. Catch you guys in my next grow!
  10. I don't have 2 boxes. The tent i'm using now will be dismantled, because the new one (still arriving) will replace this in the same spot. I don't have the physical space to implement the use of 2 tents. At the time i did the 18 clones, there were 3 mothers with them. Back then i had a "tent" which was more close to a wooden box, which had 2 rooms. Back then i used to flower the mothers in one tent, and veg the clones in the other. When the mothers were done, i switched some of the clones in the flower tent, and so on. Back then, the tent i used was 100w x 200l x 160h.
  11. I have some experience with small pots, but it's "clone experience". I managed to flower 18 clones in 4-6 liter pots and get 10-15g from each. Mainly did so many clones because i wanted to try different shapes (spiral, triangle, LST'ed etc). I was very young back then. Small pots are hard to handle if you don't repot correctly, at least this is what i've learned.
  12. Also, to be more precise, i do not believe i'm pulling the helping hand. GHS explicitly said is willing to give to any participant UP to 10 seeds, while i requested for 4. I like to believe that if i get choosen as a participant, somebody in GHS read my post, my idea for the grow, liked it, and was willing to let me try. If i fail, at least, i know that i tried. As i said, i don't care about winning. I am already a winner, for having choosen to subscribe to this forum, and get to know some of the most friendly and helpful people on the globe on this matter. I might be wrong, but i'm not sorry about that. Competition IS about winning, but ALSO about learning. Let me learn.
  13. Goddamn, i wish i studied BASIC MATH when i had the chance. Little corrections along the way: My actual grow tent is 55x58x146, and it was crafted by myself. The grow tent i'm going to grow the WR is 60x60x170, and its arrival (ordered it last friday) is estimated between 11 and 14 december. The pots i want to use are 28 cm in diameter (can't remember the height but it's less than 30cm). I've already shown they can fit perfectly. What sal is suggesting is that pot sizes ain't the issue: plant growth will be. The point between me and sal is that i believe i can grow 4 small plants in that area, and he says it's a waste of time and resources. I partly agree with him because i know that one plant can give you more than 4 little ones. I say partly because it is still my grow, and i know i can succeed in growing 4 small ones. Hell, i've just finished 2 bagseed girls in my tent, and they gave me 70g whilst being below 40cm height. Also, my bagseed were 3 months old when i harvested them: with white rhinos i got time up to 5 months. I think i will stick with 4x11Liters pots anyway, even tho to some eyes it's a waste of time and resources. To mine, it is not.
  14. You're right. I shouldn't pull the helping hand too much. What do you suggest? A single mother? Or even smaller pots? I can find a 30L pot but am quite sure the plant wont fit inside that. Sorry for the fast answer but i'm late for work hahahahaha. See you later! :3
  15. Anyway, this is a inscription post. To talk about our techniques and issues, we should move to private messages. I wanted to say that i understand what you mean. You want everything to be in place, with the correct feedings, light schedule, spacings, airflow, bug treatment etc etc. I want this to be my case too, but i also like to experiment. I don't really mind if my grow "sucks". If i manage to get some flowers, it is a success. If the flowers are smokeable, it is a far better success. Of course, if i grow 1 plant, and care for that plant, and that plant manages to flower, in a 60x60 and finish the job, i will have so much weed i can stop growing for years. As i said, i don't care about yield. What i care about is experience and knowledge. And i also need to test it out myself. I will never learn if i don't do my own way. I need to see what i'm fucking up.
  16. I agree with you, but i need to clear out a point: I'm NOT happy with the space i've got. Let me explain. I know that 11 Liters is a good medium when it comes to flowering. I also know (and hate to do) that plants in close-quarters suffer a bit. I've experienced this grow that a poor airflow can be a bad thing, especially when it comes to treating pests. What i WANT to do is different from what i PLAN to do. I want to grow as many plants as possible, so that i can decide who stays, and who leaves (if ya know what i mean). But since i don't have that possibility, i plan to plant 4 of them, and grow them low on purpose. Say, if i grow 1 plant, and fuck up with that, i've lost BOTH the contest, and my grow. With 4 smaller plants, yes, i will have less yield, but if i fuck up 1 plant, i still have 3 as a backup. Placing 2 rectangular pots could be a solution to both problems. Do not worry about airflow: in the picture above there are no extractors as they've been ordered and are still coming. I will place the filters outside the tent, so that i have much more space to work with. I have a couple fans for air circulation. Recap: i'm not happy with the space i've got, because i perfectly know that what i'm about to do is 80% wrong. I'm not happy because it's illegal here, and no matter what my efforts are, i will still be limited to grow ninja-style. I wish someday i will have 1500mq of space to work with, but for now i am limited to 60cm2, and have to deal with it. Anyhoo, as you said, it's my grow, my fuck ups, and my experience. In my place, we use to say that you need to hit a wall with your head to understand a concept. Maybe it's because of that that we can't understand basic concepts.. Regards!
  17. I appreciate the tips and the full explanations man. I know you come from more years of experience than i do. Comunication is a big issue with human species. If we, say, comunicated through images, we could instantly understand eachother. Words are fucking complicated when it comes to 200+ languages.
  18. Hey Sal, Here's what i meant when i said it's possible. I'm showing you in this picture my actual tent, which is 55x58. I can fit perfectly 4x11Liters with space bewteen the bases. I can also fit the 18L, but they're a bit squeezed. You're using plastic round pots, and they're hard to fit. I'm using cloth pots they take the form I TELL THEM TO. Hope i was clear enough.
  19. I've always heard that if you put 2 seeds in the same pot, you should be tied to a pole and burned alive. It's a BAD, BAD thing, even for regular plants. Plants should have their own personal space. Growing a plant on top of a dead's roots is another talk. (I'm sorry i didn't catch your metaphors, as i am italian and we use different ones hehehe)
  20. Hey guys, I think you guys are right. Upon reading again, with more time on my hand, i realized i should use 11Liters pots instead of 18. 11Liters are 27cm wide, should give them more room. I was also considering some rotating-bases for the plants, in a way that they receive light on every bud, everytime. But i guess they're too close-quartered to work out. Anyway, 11Liters it is. Peace!
  21. Hey Sal, My pots are airpots. They squeeze easily. I don't want to get you angry, i've read the whole message, and i thank you for the tips. Back in the days (when i was 17) i've grown 21 plants in a 200x100x160 enviroment, all together, and managed to get 600 dry grams out of 3 mothers and 18 30cm clones. I used a 250W HPS 3000k for the whole grow. I know squeezing ain't a good thing, plants suffer a bit. I'll try sticking with 11Liters, but i'm afraid 11Liters isn't enough. Point is, to me, i got 3 options: 4x18L 4x11L 1x30L I cannot grow a monster, i just want 50-60 cm plants
  22. Hey sal, I don't know if they've been announced. I'm a humble user like y'all :3 I'm just hoping that we all get to be participants. I'd love to see our works put into comparison, same plant but different enviroment and techniques. Should be very, very interesting. I care about the 'actual' competition. I compete to see others work and techniques, and maybe learn. I consider myself a winner if i get to participate, not if i win the contest. The only down to this contest is that we cannot share our works with each other. I'd love to let ya guys taste the girls i've just harvested :3
  23. Same as @ShaggyGrower, i too am writing again for my participation. I'll be using 4 pots. 4x6 LT ==> 4x11 LT per VEG 4x11 LT ==> 4x18 LT per BLOOM. I've bought a new grow tent, and crafted some new lamp supports. The new tent will be 60x60x170 cm. I've also bought proper extractors and carbon filters, and timers (which i'll need some time to learn setting hehe). I'll be using LED lights: 3x35W 6500K + 1x45W F.Spectrum per VEG 4x35W 6500K + 4x45W F.Spectrum per BLOOM Total Wattage VEG: 150W Total Wattage BLOOM: 320W I'll place the lights at 18" (45 CM) for VEG, and 12" (30 CM) for BLOOM. I'm quite curious to find out how the White Rhinos will adapt to a close-quarter enviroment. Cannot post pictures of my last grows, as i am not near the ganja-bunker, but ye guys can find some in my last diary. Anyway, wish everybody good luck, and good buds. Cheers!
  24. Miracle Gro is one of the most hated soils in weed growing. Some say is the best, but most say it sucks. It has the catchiest name, for the worst product. Point is, slow release nutes are a BAD thing for weed. What you can try is a flush on that plant, in a way you try to remove most of the slow-release nutes, but i've NEVER tried MG so i don't really know if it's worth the try. What i can tell you is that nute burn is really, really a pain in the ass to heal. ESPECIALLY on young plants that cannot uptake so much nutes. I'd consider asking @Cannabissapean or @Dust, they might have more insights than i do. Peace!
  25. Last one, the Sea Of Green you've created. Don't worry, she grows too, but outdoor. She was amazed because she didn't know about that tech. Last grow of her were 4 sativas, grew 3m tall and were kind of hard to hide.. She managed to get 60g approx from each plant, but she's considering indeed indicas and a sog for ninja-style growing

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.
