  1. Hey strain hunter's , I have been really busy this past month and unfortunately had to abandon my last jounral. I gave those plant's a nice new home in Toronto but i moved out of the city for reason's hopefully at the end of the week i can explain . But for now i have started some new bean's the FBK's where vegged from seed under 18hr's of day light for 23 day's and have been switched to 12/12 now for 3 day's. The West Coast Sour Diesel and Rock Star Kush have been in veg from seed for 18 day's then have been in 12/12 for the past 3 day's. all 4 plant's where started in beer cup's of pro mix and transplanted on day 15 into 2 gallon container's with a mix of pro mix, fermented chicken manure and Bio soil ( seaweed & shrimp compost and peatmoss) and have been getting nothing but plain PH adjusted water from the beginning. so this is a straight up organic grow. Strain Hunter's Seed Bank - Flower Bomb Kush #1 Med Man's Brand - Rock Star Kush Reg FBK #1 & Rock Star Kush Side Shot Med Man's Brand - West Coast Sour Diesel reg Strain Hunter's Seed Bank - Flower Bomb Kush #2 Group shot's Both Flower bomb Kush plant's side by side Rock Star Kush & West Coast Sour Diesel side by side more group shot's Now the WCSD was having a bit of a problem with the root ball before transplanting. so is struggling now to keep up, Also both the RSK and WCSD are from regular stock and only a couple day's into flowering so one or both could be male's we will have to wait and see.
  2. Seed Testing is back !

    alright a new batch of auto's , i saw some pic's of the white widow auto on franco's facebook looks like a killer auto i have been waiting for them to make a auto out of the white widow, but the jack as well is something awesome. Hey dust, do you know if the skunk auto is the old skunk green house used to sell that's in the grow session's video and is a really short flowering skunk ? Anyway's you know my situation dust i would love to test some seed's for you guy's but my country is lame right now unfortunately as soon as that end's you can count me in tho for sure. i'm just about to post a new journal for the FBK i have had a few minor set back's as far as my personal grow is concerned but also as you know dust for very good reason that is the only journal i have had to abandon since becoming a member of strainhunter's i feel bad i had to give those plant's away but the reason was more then worth it. so i will make up for it with a new journal with some green house genetic's.
  3. What are you smoking today??

    Hey Bam some nice bud's you got there !!! and jah fruit same with you buddy great stuff, So check this out here's a few strain's i have been smoking lately, ChemDawg Pink Kush Og Kush Cannasutra
  4. hahaha yeah bro i got the bean's the same way , as soon as i saw that promo i had to act on it just too good to pass up. all those strain's are from the promotion. on another note, thing's have been a little hectic this past week and a bit and as of right now i can't really explain why but i will be back up soon the plant's are still doing good so a new update will be up shortly and with any luck i will have some amazing new's to share will all you strain hunter's shortly to explain what i have been up to.
  5. Hey smokey, i just thought i would point something out i don't think i saw anyone mention it. It looks to me like one of your plant's has maybe what might be a zinc deficiency. Here is a photo of the plant i am talking about. if it is a zinc defiency what you wanna do is Flush with ph'd water that has a half strength nutrient content with something containing Zinc, Iron and manganese so like half strength powderfeeding should work. but yeah flush wih the ph'd light nutrient water and then moniter for the next few day's to see if new growth is sill affected. if it is a zinc defiency you wanna deal with it because if you don't it will effect the size of your bud's on the plant drastically.
  6. Hey smokey and everyone else, yeah it suck's about the Flower Bomb Kush but i no what happened and it was sort of my fault sort of not. earlyer before it happened i allowed the plant's out to much the FBK's really didn't like it the one most affected i killed before transplanting because it was stunted so much that the bubba kush surpassed it. so that was intentional but it woulden't have mattered because the other FBK which was less affected by he drying out that happened a week and a bit before once transplanted into the rich medium it kinda curled up the leaf's and had burn mark's and then the next day the plant's stem was so weak it wasn't even holding it self up so i kill it. so yeah it was my mistake i'm using a new medium plus i started he seedling's in pro mix a medium i have used many time's before but not for a while now and forgot that it doesent retain wate, as long as a rich soil so i caused my seedling's stress by letting them dry out too much. UPDATE!!!! DAY 21 From seed!!!!! anyway's as far as the other plant's are concerned everything is going great. the Desert diesel was ready for it's first topping on day 19, the other 2 plant's where topped on day 20 so yesterday morning. they are all rebounding nicely the Diesel is like i hasn't even skipped a step, the OG needed day to rebound but is doing great and the bubba kush was as if i didn't top it, instant rebound! I'm gonna be vegging for another week to let them recover then ill go into flowering. as far as the transplanting that was done a week ago , all of the plant's have nice white fussy root's coming out he bottom of the pot. so obviously the plant's are loving the organic medium as they have been receiving only water and all plant's are nice and green and lush. so here's the photo's ! HSO Desert Diesel ( Amherst 81st X Diesel ) As you can see in this next picture, Keeping the light's close to the plant in veg ensure's the lateral branch's receive adequate light penetration allowing the lower bud branch's to surpass the leaf's from the node's above! In this next picture you can see the three day old cut left over from the topping and the new shoot's now developing! This in combination with keeping the light's close will ensure that the plant grow's bushy with multiple top's all competing for the top position evening out the canopy! and here is a shot of the fresh fussy root's coming out the bottom of the container just 7 day's after transplanting! HSO Bubba Kush ( OG kush X West Coast dog X Old World Kush) Here is the fresh cut from the topping done yesterday and the new shoot's already developing! HSO Lost Coast OG ( Lost Coast OG Elite clone X Emerald OG) Here is another exsample of why keeping the light's close even in veg is important , here you can see on a plant topped only yesterday so this is not from being topped you can see the lowest lateral branch is already almost reaching the top cola on both branch's coming out of that node! this plant will develop a nice bush even tho is alittle stressing from the light's being close compared to the other's in the end it will pay off however it's important to no how close is too close and never crossing that line. And here is a group shot of the plant's . notice how close he light is that is a 400W hps i could go even closer if i wanted to but this is sufficient. in order to keep the light close i have a 10 inch fan pointed directly at the bulb of the light on full blast and a constant exchange of fresh cold air from outside. temperature in grow room is 24 degree's Celsius or 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Ok that's it for this week, i have a big week coming up so until next time stay green!!! here are a few bud shot's of my smoke for christmas!!! Chocolate Thai Brother's Grimm - Cinderella 99 ( princess X cinderella 88 ) Barney's Farm - Vanilla Kush ( Kashmir x Afghan Kush )

    beautiful plant's bro! seriously every picture is just incredible . i can't wait to see these nice plant's in flower whats the strain called?
  8. UPDATE!!!! DAY 17 from seed!!! Ok everything is doing good, it's kinda strange for me now that the FBK's are gone this is the first grow i have done in a long time without any green house strain's so we will see how it goes. So far these strain's are looking pretty nice growth wise and ill be happy to get to see them with a nice veg period. So the transplant went well and all the remaining plant's rebound in no time. the desert diesel and the lost coast og already have a nice scent when you touch the leaf's so i am excited to see how they are when resin start's pumping out. the bubba kush was started alittle late and is only on day 14 i believe but it's already totally caught up to the other two plant's in size . so far i have been giving them just water this medium require's less frequent watering compared to coco as it retain's much more water so that's something that i have to get used to a side from that everything is going great. now for the photo's. HSO Bubba Kush Day 14 from seed HSO Lost Coast OG Day 17 from seed HSO Desert Diesel Day 17 from seed group shot Ok well that's it for now until next time stay green!
  9. ok so i transplanted the plant's about 2 - 3 day's ago now, i did so because in the cup's the plant's where not doing so well . i am convinced now that starting seed's in smaller starter cups stunt's the growth of seedling's every time i have done it the leaf's start considerably smaller then when i just start them in a big container. so anyway's i have some bad new's as well the FBK's were looking really sickly the smaller one before transplanting had really weak stem and slowed growth the bubba kush that i started like 3 or 4 day's after i cracked the FBK's surpassed the smaller FBK so i decided to kill it. then when i transplanted all the rest of the other 4 plant's everything went fine, but yesterday i noticed burn mark's on the second FBK but nothing so damaging that it was drastic then i woke up today and the stem did the same thing as the other FBK it was weak and barely holding up the plant. so i decided to take out both FBK's i will do a full FBK grow next grow and do it right but i didn't wanna chance having a stunted plant in my closet taking up space that could be better utilized by a healthy plant. So i am now gonna do a 4 week veg Topping each plant on day 21 and flowering after day 28. All the other plant's are doing great . i will add some updated picture soon .
  10. I've seen that mutation on el nino plant's before i think it's from the widow as i have also seen it on GWS ! That is a lovely el nino specimen tho nice fat serrated leaves should make for some nice smoke. There is a seed bank in Toronto that still has an old pack of regular el nino seed's for 52$ or at least claim's to still have it i haven't physically seen the pack. i also i have found another seed bank online that say's they still have el nino and Hawaiian snow seed's ? i don't know if it's true tho the seed bank is called rhino seed's i have never ordered from them or anything tho here's the link. http://www.cannabis-seeds.co.uk/greenhouseseedsstandard.html
  11. UPDATE!!! Day 8 of veg!!!! Alright so thing's are going good, sort of. i left the fan too low an the medium dried out a little this week not much longer then i have before with seedling's in cup's the two Humboldt seed organisation plant's where fine but the FBK really didn't like it and the embryonic leafs turned yellow, i know this happen's naturally sometime's but in this case it happened directly after the medium dried out a bit and the heat was a little hotter because i point my fan at the light bulb so i can bring the light closer to my plant's. one of the FBK's even had a tad bit of yellowing on the first leaf set on the tip's. I added a very tiny amount of Powder feeding to my water less then the 0.25 G's per L and watered and turned the fan back to full and the seedling's seem to be recovering nicely. Since dust pointed out to me that the FBK's are lower yielding and i am using organic's and only a 20 day veg i made the decision to add another plant to the mix. I might regret this later but hell i have 2 more 150W light's if i need to add alittle more light i'm set but i am hoping i won't have to and that the plant's will be short enough to fit under the 400W nicely i'm adding some mylar later this week as well. And one last thing i didn't like the way the seedling's where responding to the MH so i switched to the HPS my logic to this is that the HPS has more lumen's , i only did that yesterday so ill have to wait and see if i notice a difference in growth. Lost Coast OG Desert Diesel Flowerbomb Kush #1 Flowerbomb Kush #2 HSO Bubba Kush Day 4 Group Shot! Alright well that's it for now until next time, stay green!
  12. What are you smoking today??

    hey i got some more nice bud to share with all you hunters!!!! here is some berry kush ( not to be confused with kushberry from DNA) this berry kush smell's like blueberry muffin's and hindu kush a really unique berry aroma nothing like your standard fruity berry smell my guess is that it is a blueberry hashplant X hindu kush Berry Kush
  13. UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!! DAY 2 from seed!!! Ok so like i said all the seed's popped at the same time yesterday! they are all developing nicely, however one of the Flowerbomb kush seed's shell's opened up but didnt fully fall off right away so it isen't quite as opened up as the other's but that will sort it self out as the new leaflet's develop. Aside from that everything i developing nicely and doing good. i have the seedling's under a 400W metal halide bulb which i will use for the veg once i switch over i will be using hps. the seedling's are in those red beer cup's and the medium i am using for the seedling's is just a basic promix once the plant's are developed enough i will transplant them into my rich organic soil mixture. so yeah right now that's all there is to share, so here are the photo's enjoy and stay green! Whole set up shot! group shot Humboldt Seed Organization - Desert Diesel ( Amherst 81st X Diesel) Humboldt Seed Organization - Lost Coast OG ( elite clone Lost coast OG X Emerald OG) Photo of both Flowerbomb Kush ( Green Crack X OG kush) Green House Flowerbomb Kush ( Green Crack X OG Kush) #1 Flowerbomb Kush (Green Crack X Og Kush) #2 OK so that's it for now, until next time stay green!!!!!!!!!!
  14. Thank's for the head's up ! Since there isent a hole abundance of grow's on the Flowerbomb Kush yet i was kinda struggling on how long to veg for. i went on the assumption that while Og kush is a lower yielding strain green crack is a skunk X afgani and is a medium to high producer so i wasn't sure what to do but everything i have seen from the FBK so far has been single cola dominate shorter and very kush influenced in growth. so i figure i am just gonna be happy with whatever i get off it , the problem is i don't have 2 area's to grow just one like you probably already know and both the lost coast og and the desert diesel are higher yielding strains one being the diesel obviously is gonna be a bigger plant and the lost coast OG was bred specifically to boost the yeild of the original OG in cali because alot of strain's grown outdoor's in cali are bred for both quality and yield so i'm gonna assume it's also gonna be a bigger plant so i don't wanna veg too long as i am growing 4 plant's and my space is limited im really only gonna be able to do like maybe 3 week's veg time. to be honest i am most worried about the diesel that chemdog i grew was massive i doubt i could fit 4 plant's that size in my closet and it was vegged for 4 week's. So i am gonna go for 3 week's this time . In my situation it would actually be good to have some smaller plant's because i am sure the diesel will be a decent size. i will make the canopy even regardless of the height of the plant's i always just raise up the shorter one if need be. the other option would be topping the diesel at the 3rd week and going for 4 week's veg i might do that actually. Ill figure something out i usually make a plan at the beginning of a grow and then end up doing thing's completely different by the end. Ok so thank's everyone else for stopping by! Good news today i woke up and all 4 seed's popped at the same time!!! This is why i don't mess around with the paper towel method or using a shot glass, I just take the seed's plant them in the soil in the right way so the tap root goes down which is ass end up just look at a seed and youll figure out what's the ass end. if you can't figure it out look at a seed that the tap has just sprouted it always come's out one end of the seed so you wanna plant the seed so the opposite end is pointing up . Add water and wait and you'll see great germination rate's simple and easy! anyway' ill be back in a bit with picture's of the fresh seedling's!!!!!! until then stay green!!!
  15. Hello Hunter's , I seem's it's that time again, for me to crack some new bean's!!! Staying true to my nature i am switching thing's up a little bit yet again, this time around i am doing a full organic grow. I am starting the seed's in beer cups in standard pro mix , they wil be in the cup's till some nice root development goes on then transplanted into a rich organic mixture. I plan on using only pure water for this grow but since i am using a new organic mixture i am gonna play it by ear to see how the development progress's. the rich organic medium i am using is something i will most likely be working with for a while as i have mixed a bunch of it , the organic mix is pretty simple. I mixed ruffly 60 L's of promix with 40 L's of Fertilo ( composted chicken manure) and with 30 L's of Sea compost with Peat, seaweed and shrimp. i have been told this is sort of a hot mixture which is ideal for my purpose's i plan on layering this mixture the bottom 60% of of my 2 gallon pot's with the organic mixture the top 40% with pro mix so as not to burn the new root's after transplanting . i also have a bag of bone meal that i haven't decided if it's necessary to use or not. I am open to suggestion for anyone with organic growing experience indoor's in pot's as this is somewhat new to me i used to make my own soil outdoor's but for bed's and the plant' i put in it where always well vegged. Below is some picture's of the Fertilo and sea compost bag's and a list of the analysis of the content's, Fertilo INGREDIENTS Composted chicken manure GUARANTEED MINIMUM ANALYSIS The analysis is achieved with final product at maximum moisture capacity Total Nitrogen (N) - 1,2% Available phosphoric acid (P2O5) - 1,2% Soluble Potash (K2O) - 1,2% Maximum moisture - 48% Organic matter - 33% - See more at: http://www.fafard.ca/en/produit/fertilo_composted_chicken_manure/#sthash.0hircasp.dpuf Sea compost known in Canada as Bio Soil INGREDIENTS Composted manure, sphagnum peat moss, shrimp flour, seaweed GUARANTEED MINIMUM ANALYSIS The analysis is achieved with final product at maximum moisture capacity Total Nitrogen (N) - 1,2% Available phosphoric acid (P2O5) - 0,7% Soluble Potash (K2O) - 0,6% Calcium (Ca) - 1% Organic matter - 33% Maximum moisture - 55% - See more at: http://www.fafard.ca/en/produit/sea_compost_with_peat_seaweed_and_shrimp/#sthash.PU0lWOzs.dpuf As for the promix it isent the name brand but the same basic thing, the company i am using instead of promix is Berger's and the line is BM1 ingredient's and info: Incubated pH = 5.4 - 6.2 Coarse peat moss; Horticultural perlite; Horticultural Vermiculite; Dolomitic limestone; Calcitic limestone; Non-ionic wetting agent Ok so i will be planting the seed's today and will get back to you guy's as soon as they pop!!! the seed's i am popping are 2 bean's of GHSC flowerbomb Kush 1 bean of HSO desert diesel 1 bean of HSO lost coast OG ill be back asap with the fresh popped seedling's until then stay green!

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.
