  1. Thanks @OG.Naj and @9DRAGONS, Thanks for the reassurance. It's my first banana and caused panic. Anyhoo, big second defoliation of the remaining fan leafs yesterday, and now there is lots of light getting down to bud sites. It's all very sparkly in there, but I would like the buds to get bigger (obviously -lol). I make it 4-5 weeks to go (Day 37 of flowering), so take off the last two weeks where I'll be flushing, so I have three feedings left (about once a week) and perhaps only two as they are drinking more slowly. Now, I've ran out of Bloom nutes. I have Grow nutes (6-2-4) and PK (9 phosphorous, 18 potassium, 5.1 Sulphur) and Potassium Silicate (6%). Am thinking of giving a 25% Grow (for a little N) 50% PK and 25% PS mix in an EC 1.2 solution. Do you guys have any thoughts/advice?
  2. A bit of researching and yes, that's a male sex organ. One does not mean the whole plant has hermied apparently. Can't do much about it now, half way through flowering with no spare tents/space, so I've cut it out, prowled around for a bit looking for others but seeing none, and I'll be keeping and even closer beady eye on them from now on! And it was all going so well ....
  3. Erm, is that what I think it is, ie, has my plant hermied?
  4. Hi @LedCherryBerry, '5' is already part way through germination I think, ie, filled with water now, so I think it may be too late to stop her germinating without killing her. It'll be a week behind, so not too much bother as long as I label each pot correctly I think. If all 5 make it, I'll give one to my mate @THELOCKYONE who did not gain entry into the competition, so he can still grow a WR (his fav). Happy Growing!
  5. Thanks @LedCherryBerry, Yup, pure genius that pic - still making me laugh "5" has sunk, so is now between the germination plates in a moist (not soggy) tissue. Fingers crossed. '4' seems a little greener. Kinda want her to pull through, but kinda don't as I only want 4 plants in my tent this time as 5 is too crowded. I'll take what life throws at me Happy Growing!
  6. I've reviewed '4', and I don't think she's going to make it (although while it has green, I still have hope), so I have popped another bean in to soak. I am the worlds worst young plant handler. This time, as soon as it's cracked, it gets planted.
  7. Will do @I'm Sal. I have the dehumidifier at the ready just in case. Fingers crossed!
  8. 16-28 February. ~4-5 weeks.
  9. Some close-ups of their buds
  10. Hi @OG.Naj, You're photo's are looking good. You're method from step three ("Compress gently the soil up the seeds") is a little different to mine. I don't compress, and also I put water the media before putting the germinated seeds in. This is due to past issues where the soil got too compacted and the roots drowned. I've found that compacting and then watering, over-compacts the media for just-germinated seeds. Just my experience though, and that was before I'd been recommended Perlite. Happy Growing!
  11. A wizz around my tent in Week 6 of flowering: Top left is Nebula, Top right is JW, middle is SS, bottom left is DD, bottom right is IC. I've turned them around, so their backsides are facing the light. They seem to love that and the inside flowers are going potty. Happy Growing!
  12. 12 hours after the photo collage above: M is doing great, and '3' has it's stalk lengthening as well which I take to mean all is well underground with it's roots. '2', which popped through the surface before '3' (hence why it's '2') must be struggling below. It's growing very, very slowly (it's the one in the middle bottom above). It's 2nd single leaf is starting to show so it's alive. It reminds me of how IC started. '4' has got greener but is the least happy. I expect all of them to pull through as they're tenacious little plants. Happy Growing!
  13. Hi @OG.Naj "I saw your grow in the other section. We can already see the beautiful results. Interesting to give 24h of light. What benefit do you get from this lighting strategy can you explain?" I do this so there is a consistent environment. More changed = less consistency. Leaving the light on = no change, so hopefully more consistency. With the light on consistently, the temperatures will be consistent as well. So too for humidity. Under this regime last time, they grew very tight stem internodes and I'd like to repeat that so am keeping the same blue-light-24-/-7-3-10cm-from-canopy strategy. They'll get 24/7 for 14 days, then they go to 18-6. Happy 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.
