  1. So. It is finally time to start this new year with a decent grow journal. Thanking GreenHouseSeeds for giving me this amazing opportunity to test out their WhiteRhino strain, and their Bio Feeding Line of powder nutrients. As mentioned in the inscription post, this will be my equipment: - 4x 6500K 35W LED - 4x Full Spectrum 45W LED - The GreenHouseSeed bank BIO Feeding Line - A 60x60x170 SecretJardin Grow Tent - Airflow with one small fan, and 2 filtered extractors (IN and OUT) for 108m3/h. - 2 initial WhiteRhino seeds, 1 will be chosen and brought to flowering. - Pot sizes, varying from 1L, to 6L, to 11L, to 18L. - A scrog net (this will be my first scrog attempt, please be merciful) - A lot of love and joy doing this. And duct tape. And beer. I plan to increase light power with the increased growth. - 1° Week 70W - 2° Week 105W - 3°-5° Week 140W - 6°-7 Week 140W + 45W FS - 8°-12° Week 140W + 90W FS - Remaining Weeks at Maxium Light Output (140W + 180W FS) With this i want to simulate the increased output of the sun, transitioning from spring, to summer. At the end of Week 7 i'll perform the switch to 12-12. I also plan to feed the girls 6 weeks for VEG, and 8 Weeks for Bloom. I'll start feeding at week 4, when i transplant from 6L to the final pot (which i still need to decide between 11 and 18L). This is the current plan for the grow, that WILL be revised as i go on. I'm sharing it just to give an idea.

I also tried to germinate one seed some days before the new year, but it popped the surface as a dead seed. The root grew (small), but the small plant never got rid of the seed shells (after 14 days). I started 2 new seeds, and am waiting for them to pop the surface. I will decide between the 2, who gets to stay. Below, some pics of the equipment: This is the light rack i've crafted. Pretty basic, huh? Pot sizes AND room space. The little white buddy on the bottom right is the dehumidifier, that will be turned on when i switch to 12-12. A special thanks to GreenHouseSeeds. You guys are amazing. Nothing left to say, till the girls pop the surface. Until then... Peace!
  2. Hi All, This grow will start mid January to end February depending on the weather. First grow for 2018 and it's the Indica prominent White Rhino. Perfect for extreme LST and....maybe SCROG. Lets see when we get to that stage. Anyways, list of bits and bobs I'll be using for this: EQUIPMENT: BudBox Pro 1.2m x 1.2m x 2m (White Interior) RAM 5" Carbon Filter 350m/hr RAM 5" Extraction Fan 378m/hr on controller RAM 4" Fan 277m/hr on controller (ACTIVE INTAKE THROUGH SPARE CF TO MINIMIZE PESTS) 2 x 80w Tube Heaters The combination above creates a nice environment for 8/9 months of the year until winter comes when it is too cold to grow as stealthy as I like.. MEDIA & FEED: 50% Bio Bizz Light Mix 25% Coco 25% Perlite A test mix I have been playing with which might suit the GHSC feed well as there will be very minimal nutritional value in the media. Not a fan of forever potting up so the seeds will be germed in 3lt pots then onto 11ltr final pots. 5 x 3lt pots (GERMINATION / EARLY VEG) 5 x 11lt pots (FINAL POT) Feed will be solely GHSC GROW, BLOOM & ENHANCER and NOTHING else LED: 2 x ViparSpectra 450w (TRUE WATTAGE approx 200w each) 1 x Go Grow V1 Master Grower 600w (TRUE WATTAGE approx 200w) Early veg will be under 1 x ViparSpectra than the other LED's will be steadily introduced until all 3 units are up and running during flower. I want a nice thick canopy to aim at and this "crash of Rhinos" are very nice candidates to play with. Looking forward to the New Year to get started. Goodluck all
  3. 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.
  4. So what's he latest with these LED lights then?
  5. Hi Everyone, I'm new here but not new to growing, lets just say I have had a few years out the loop while other commitments took priority as I explained in the introduction section of this forum. Anyway, I am back growing and really interested in feminised Indica prominent strains and what better company to use than GHSC because they tried and tested with a very nice selection of every strain and seed you could ever wish for. Firstly, before I start, I would like to give a big "Thank You" to Mike at GHSC and, as a man true to my word, you will see exactly how your produce performs for others under different conditions that may or may not bring out the best in the plant. As we have discussed, regardless what the outcome, it will be interesting and I look forward to it. Right then, this is what is being used and how it is all going to happen: Equipment: 0.8mtr x 0.8mtr Grow Tent 2 x 4" Intake Fans on both sides of the tent at the bottom 1 x 4" Carbon Filter (UPGRADED TO RAM 5" x 475mm AFTER 1 WEEK) 1 x 4" Extraction Fan (UPGRADED TO RAM 5" AFTER 1 WEEK) 1 x 6" Circulation Fan Have conducted a test run over 2 days (with 1 LED running) and all appears well with nice temps and humidity (see attached picture). I have slight negative pressure when the CF is attached to the extraction fan. I will not be using the CF during early veg when the plants are not stinky and when the CF is removed I have slight positive pressure which I think will fine as there will be no smell to escape but as soon as I smell even the faintest smell the CF will be used. Media: BioBizz Light Mix Perlite 11ltr Pots will be the final pots My mix will be 70% BioBizz Light Mix and 30% Perlite. I have chosen this soil simply because I have used it before with good results and I think the reason is because with it being very light on nutrients you can have more control over intake of nutrients. My growth method will be SCROG,which I have always done. Plants can be kept very compact and as a result the buds get equal amount of light which is very rewarding when it comes to yield. Nutrients: Growth Technology product range as follows: GT Ionic Soil Grow together with GT Greenfuse Root & GT Greenfuse Grow GT Ionic Soil Bloom together with GT Greenfuse Bloom GT Ionic Cal-Mag Pro Nectar of the Gods product - Herculean Harvest Despite using BioBizz Light Mix I will not be going heavy handed with these nutrients, I will let the plants tell me what they want and if I only need to feed at 1/8th strength then that is what I will do. I will be starting off light and simply observe reactions and act accordingly. Lights: BossLED Diamond Series II 1000watts (167watts to 171watts real wattage from the wall) ViparSpectra Reflector Series 450watts (198watts to 201watts real wattage from the wall) I originally was only going to use the BossLED but after it arrived and I tested it the real power draw was not between 240watt - 280watts as the manufacturer stated. In fact the real power draw is only between 167watts - 171watts which is very different to the comments of the manufacturer. I have not tested PAR but I have concluded (due to real wattage inaccuracy) it is not what the manufacturer claims. This actual unit has very good reviews and more in the USA so I have no doubt it is a reasonable mid-range LED unit and the spectrum is supposed to good so lets see how it performs. As for the ViparSpectra, I have a lot more confidence in this unit and this also has very good reviews. It has a Veg and Bloom along with daisy chain connection. It arrived today and the manufacturer claims it has an average actual power draw of 200watts, I tested it right away and it has exactly that with both the Veg and Bloom switched on. I measured it at around 198watts. I will be using both units together and the combined actual power draw is around 370watts. Using LED's the recommendation is that you should have at least 25watts per square foot. I have 6.89sqft so my 370watts using the 2 LED units works out to be 53.7watts per square foot so I am more than double the recommenced wattage. Lets see how it pans out. Strains: I have several strains to choose from and I am hoping to squeeze 4 plants in my little space but train them very well under the SCROG net. I have chosen the following: 1 x White Widow (Feminised) 1 x Kalashnikova (Feminised) 1 x Super Bud (Feminised) 1 x The Doctor (Feminised) *EDIT* - Plus 2 "adopted" Feminised Seeds - Blue Treacle Automatics which was destined for the garden in the sky and I could not let that happen despite being short of space!! - *EDIT AGAIN* The 2 Blue Treacle plants have had to be re-homed AGAIN due to lack of space. Although I have more strains to choose from I feel that the selection above will be very well suited together because they all finish around the same time and are mainly Indica. With 2 LED's and 4 fans I was expecting more noise than there actually is but I am very pleased with the noise, lack of it in fact, and I am running everything at a very steady and comfortable 70dB making it much lower from a slight distance as the tent is in an enclosed space. So, there you have it all and today I have started germinating the 4 seeds. I like to soak them for while until they sink then they will be straight into little pots with BioBizz Light Mix and Perlite. I do not like the paper towel method as I do not like handling seeds when the tap root is exposed. Jump aboard and enjoy the ride because I think it will be an interesting journey.
  6. This is about Lightimetunnel 3ooWatts topic which is a good way running and it does cheaper than other lights and has high quilty & high technology. dont no how to just post pictures,so here is what i been working on for all to see,this is white blaze with a couple bulbs and roleadro 300W( I actually got two of them) ,i breed and came up with a fire line,still working her want to be right,lmao. these are 56 days into flower,both grown natural,i have a tall pheno and a short one both are very hungry younguns,tester have recorded massive growth threw veg with some of the leafs maxing out with average of 9in leafs and as you can see they dont slow down for a silly flower. she has a sweet smell to her,tast test coming to a store near me soon,lmao This Gold Blaze and Brass Monkey .... I really really like the mini 300Watts stuff.Kinda think it's goonna change to 600W.https://www.amazon.com/Lightimetunnel-Spectrum-Heatproof-Greenhouse-Hydroponic/dp/B01MPY7YC2/ref
  7. Here we go again starting a new grow in next couple of days! I have bought a new tent suited better for LED so hopefully see better things! I will be putting 5 Cindy Haze by Brothers Grimm seeds regular hopefully get 3 females 3 Tangie ghost train little cheif Collabs feminised 3 Black Jack sweet seeds feminised into water for 12-16 hours then transfer to paper towels till tap roots pops out fed bio bizz root juice for the first week then start with light feed of bio bizz fish mix till they are established enough to go into final pots of my super soil. I worked from subcools recipe with a few extras I used lower measurements than his recipe as I didn't want to go overboard on one certain nutrient I am aiming to feed mainly water but will give them some EWC teas and guano teas with added beneficial bacteria brews. My equipment this time are pretty much the same just think I'm gonna use just one fitting this time but that may change! 1.2sqm tent (white sides) 400+ spectrum king LED maybe 300+ one too out take 6" hyperfan phresh 6" rhino carbon filter 5" rvk intake fan starting off in 1litre pots with bio bizz light mix then potting into 18 litre pots half super soil half bio bizz all mix or light mix not sure hopefull I got this mix right otherwise I'll be using just bagged soil and teas next time

  9. My last diary has come to an end! So I'm starting new. I've put 8 tangie ghost train, 2 herijuana Jack 33, 1 blue lemon Thai, 1 cheese going to be growing them in coco this time round with canna products not using canna boost I'll be using advanced nutrients liquid carboload. I've bought a new spektrum King 400+ led fitting debating whether I'll be able to use that along side my 300+ totalling 1600w in a 1.2sqm tent 2.2m high with 5in outtake twin speed rhino fan and filter 4"intake
  10. Decided to start off scratch and start a new diary I have got a starter kit of DNA mills nutrients to try out so I got some of there coco with cork to try. I put 7 viper cookies on germination had a dud pack only one cracked and came out of soil but has been deformed the petioles wouldn't open or face upwards I tried to free them and accidentally snapped one off but 3 days later today it's finally showing first set of leaves poking out! Not holding out on this one but I'm hoping she pulls through! I put 3 Girl Scout cookies 1 is up and startin second set of leaves one didn't crack and other didn't do anything in coco I dug it out and gave up on it left it on top of coco in dark corner of room ready to throw away went to dispose of it today to notice 2 tap roots growing and very hairy so I repotted it let's see what f I end up with twins!! 2 Black D.O.G rooting vigorously but one has stretched stupidly and is very weak and floppy! Also put 5 great white shark to replace the viper cookies 4 germinated 3 made it above coco of which one has no leaves just the petioles and its hollow inside so I'll either have 7 in total or 5 if I have 7 I'll finish them off in 11ltr pots if only 5 18ltr pots. I got a feeding guide for their nutrients for a guidelines me it's pretty good but for newbies the ec levels could be a killer check the veg levels!! Sorry pic is sideways my phone is having a glitch! I've started off quarter strengths ec 0.5 and so far they have been the darkest I've ever had seedlings looks like the nutrients are very easy to use!
  11. Hi All, me again back with another journal this time with Heavy Weight Seeds - Fast and Vast, which are supposedly producing 600-800gms ms2 in just 8 weeks from germination to harvest! Well, I'm five weeks in with three of them and four weeks in with one and as you can see they are nowwhere near ready and ain't goning to be in three weeks! Although that may be down to my pH keep rising, up to 7.5 at one point, and they were also getting a bit cold when light was off for 4 hrs each night. They got some serious growing to do if they are to produce anywhere near 600gms let alone 800gms! I reckon by the end I'll be lucky if I get 200-300 off all of them but that's not a problem, I'll have some NL autos on the go later this week so 200-300gms would carry me through 6 weeks till they're ready. They're currently under my Viparled 675w LED light and will get swapped to 600w HPS at the weekend. Anyway, here's some pics. Peace y'ole Toaor
  12. Has anyone had a chance to test out any of the Fluence SPYDRx led range, seen some good YouTube vids on them and they look amazing but starting at $900 before shipping they don't come cheap. Would like to see if anyone here had any first hand experience with them. Thanks
  13. Hi people! Hope you're all doing great. So a couple of months ago I started my first grow of an AutoBomb (64 days) indoor. I've been using a LED panel of 120w (3w leds). Now I think it's close to harvest time. I would like to hear your opinion about it. Probably you'll se the plant and think that it has some weeks till harverst but I'm lacking of time because I'm travelling so I have aproximately 6 days left, maybe 7... Here goes the pictures: So I've been using both Feeding Powder Growing and Short flowering during this grow. Ultimately I've prepared a banana tea with some honey for that extra potasium and sugars boost to increase the buds weight and I'm planning doing it again today. Some thing that concerns me are the size of this buds, altought they are distributed all over the plant they are quite small. Finally, I don't know what caused the purple leaves on the cup of the plant (excuse my english, it's not my first language so I dont know some terminology). Keep doing well!!
  14. Heya folks, October 31st, 2016 -- Happy Halloween! Hope everyone is ready for another work weed *blah* and has their medicine all ready for the week. I used to keep my current journals and logs on this forum, however this will be my first post/grow journal on this forum in many years so allow me to introduce myself. My name is Ryan(or ECCannaCure), I'm in my early 30s and have been growing cannabis for 12years now. I mostly grow for the purpose of creating my own supply so to speak, however I do help a few of my close friends obtain quality and fully transparent medicine. I'm constantly trying/creating new strains and techniques as I believe that we have only begun to scratch the surface on this most sacred of plants, and any idea that makes sense on paper should be experimented with at least once. If it works - great, if not, lesson learned. It's a bit late here and I have just finished doing some maintenance so I'm going to cut this introduction short for now, with the intentions of filling in the rest when I have more time but to get down to business, the great folks at GreenHouseSeeds/StrainHunters have provided me with the magical beans in order to create a journal for you all on 3 different strains they currently carry. Those 3 strains are Super Critical, Nevilles Haze, and The Church. The only strain I have previous experience with is The Church, and it quickly became a favorite among my inner circle of friends. I have grown other Critical strains, but never Super Critical by StrainHunters so I am very excited to see the results as StrainHunters always provides top notch genetics to their customers. I started the Super Critical 2 weeks ago, and tomorrow depending on how busy I am with trick or treaters I will begin to add pictures of the progress so far as well as provide a list of the equipment and nutrients I am working with. I love doing side by sides, and with 3 tents in production at the moment this will be constantly upgraded with all the strains I am working with. Hopefully someone reading this will maybe learn a thing or two and hopefully I am able to learn a thing or two from the commentators, as I am always interested in hearing new ideas and construction criticism. TO BE CONTINUED -- Check back Oct31st-November 1st. Updated: Nov. 15th (SORRY For the delay, was very busy with work) Work has kept me away from updating this journal, however it is never to busy to deprive me with my time with my ladies. I have kept a log for the journal but have yet to copy it over to the forums so without further a do, my progress so far with these 3 beautiful strains. (Super Critical, Neville's Haze, The Church) With only Super Critical in production at the moment along with one Critical + Sensi Star I carried over from a previous batch that I had pollinated myself using a beautiful Critical mother and a Sensi Star stud. Super Critical -- 56 Days Flowering Time, Mostly indica strain. Consists of: Big Bud x Skunk x White Widow genetically. (yum yum, just the genetics sound like a winner). A very good producer providing an above average yield. 4 Plants will be flowered in a DWC-R system under a mix of 2 Mars Hydro 700W LED lights and a 600W digital HPS light running at 450-600W. Plants veg veg'd under a Mars Hydro 600W LED light, however I usually use a 4 Foot 4 Tube Fluroscent grow lighting system by HydroFarm, but decided to try the 600W LED for this harvest. These plants will be housed in a 8x4 grow tent and given ample room to spread their branches and grow. My plan is to flower these strains using LST during the final weeks of veg and beginning of flower and ultimately a controlled canopy using a SCRoG net. Plants will be grown using mostly nutes from the Advanced Nutrients product line for both Veg and Flower. Complete line up will be displayed in photos detailed within this grow journal however off the top of my head I'm using Sensi A & B, B-52, House and Gardens Roots excelleratur(excellent product! well worth its expensive cost.), and Liquid Karma for the vegetation period and for flower my nutes cosist of Advanced Nutrients Connoisseur A & B, B-52, Big Bud, Bud Factor X, Bud Ignitor, Rhino Skin, Liquid Karma, and Advanced Nutrients all natural PH up and PH down for pH Control in the reservoir. Black strap mollasses are also used in the final weeks of flower, which replaces advanced nutrients Bud Candy. I do have a hand in a friend of mines ebb and flower 4 table 8x4 open room growand we recently made the switch to Remo Nutrients 7-part nutrient line and have been enjoying fantastic results at a fraction of the cost. With that I will probably do a side by side with remo vs AN on the Church Strain.. Not sure if I'll use HPS or LED lighting but it will be a true side by side and if remo continues to out preform then I will be using the stock I have left of AN and changing all my grow areas to remo nutrients. Seeds began germination October 6th and were germinated using the wet towel in a book method, all seeds popped and looked to have healthy looking tap roots. Plants were transported into rapid rooters and placed into their DWC-R buckets October 11th to begin their vege period under 2 700W LED lights in a 8x4 tent. <Pictures are being uploaded> A photo of the seeds and packaging received from my friends at Green House Seeds. Inside of the tent ready for the ladies. A group of some of my nutrients being used on this grow. First week of vegetation. Start of the second week of Vege. Looking nice and healthy. Topped and lollipopped. Aftermath of some SuperCropping LST More aftermath of supercropping, dont worry they will be looking happy as ever in a few hours. Back to their old selves and beaming for the light a few hours after getting SuperCropped. Building a custom SCRoG net for this new tent. Just changed the lighting sched and starting first week of Flower. Another small trimming and 1st day of Flower for the ladies. A bit more SuperCropping to get the limbs partially trained for the SCRoG net. Ill be adding captions and time lines to these photos later tonight. Real life calls at the moment but they look upet in some pictures due to the supercropping and LST Ive been doing.
  15. Hello and Welcome to my First blog...... Thanks for stopping by, I'm EastCoastCannaCure(Ryan), am in my early 30's and have been learning from growing for 12 years at this point. Basically I'm 12years inexperienced as we are just learning so much about cannabis at a mind blowing rate these days, and the leaps and bounds being taken each day by notables such as Remo, and Horatio, the guys at StrainHunters and GreenHouse Seeds for some amazing genetics, that a vast part of the true "experience" and knowledge is still out there and being attained and sought after. With colleges being started and the science and techniques themselves being truly explored, and the amount of knowledge being gained, it sure is a great time to be a part of such a positive change and developing a quality and natural medicine. I have somewhat trickled over from the forums (after only one post I had been updating) as the schedule I keep and the time I currently spend with my favorite ladies seems to transfer over well with the context and delivery of a blog.. well we will see anyway. I will continue to update both of them and see which one works best. Now.. why I'm here. I maintain at this moment 3 grow tents 2 are 4 x 4 and one is 8x4. I just moved and had to start from seed, as quality clones locally were not available at the time and luckily enough the great folks at GreenHouseSeeds/StrainHunters gifted me a pack of Super Critical, The Church, and the long flowering Neville's Haze so I could share my grow experience with these strains to you.. each in its own set of lighting (I use both LED, HPS, and CFL( for mothers and clones)). I like to run side by sides and test different strains in different ways. I plan on doing a advanced nutrients vs remo nutrients side by side very soon. I have always been a loyal Advanced Nutrients user, but a friend of mine introduced me to Remo Nutrients and a side by side he was conducting... and I must say Id have to be a fool not to give Remo a try(I have not yet tried any of StrainHunters nutrients but do plan on trying them and testing results with them as well as I do like their packaged approach and would love to test its simplicity and how well it produces healthy, deficient free medicine.) I guess in this post I'll detail what I have currently in progress and where I plan to be and of course how I am getting there. Basically right now I have popped 3 Super Critical Beans and I had one Super Sensi Star + Critical bean left from a previous grow and wanted a mother from that so I popped that as well. I am growing them in a top and bottom feed 4 plant DWC-Recirculating hydroponic system, they were seedling'd under a 600w LED and then veg'd under 2 600W LEDS and 1 600W HPS in the middle, and are now in week 2 of Flower with a 1200W LED and a 600W HPS in a 8x4 tent. My next post will detail some pictures of leading up to where I'm at, and some information on my techniques and how they work for me.. I am open to suggestions as there is definitely more then one way to skin a cat, and yes some of those ways are simply proven to be more efficient or more beneficiary then others. Stay tuned.
  16. High, once again! Decided to start a new grow and going to do just one strain this time of GHSC Trainwreck going to be using canna coco with their line of nutrients going to be using 18litre pots this time round as I intend in vegging them till mid October! I will be using my trusty spektrum King LED 300+ and 400+ in 1.2sqm tent with 5" rhino dual speed fan for intake and 6" phresh hyper fan for outtake. If anyone's got any advice on training them I'm open was thinking LST and topping them ideally no scrog as I'll have to hide them for half a day in October.

  20. Hi Brothers & Sisters I have decided to do another SSH from GHSC, i love this starin and have had nothing but success with it in the past. I'll be using a 100w LED COB style for the grow cycle on 18/6hr with a Wilma Big 4 Pot System. 400W HPS for the flowering stage GHSC Long Feed Clay pebbles for the medium Tri-meter to keep an eye on Ph, Temp & nutrient levels In-line extract fan with carbon filter Small desk fan Tubular heater and room stat to help stabilize temps Aero-pot for the early growth after germination Currently germinating been 2days since adding seeds to tap water Ph6.9, I have never germinated in Ph5.5 More updates will follow in a couple of days or maybe sooner.

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.
