First journal

DSC_1723.JPGMy first attempt at a journal.

I'm not sure what the name of the strain I have is. Hopefully this journal can shed some light on the subject. 

I'm a little late to start my grow this year but this won't really matter a whole lot as they don't grow big anyway. 

The seeds where germinated on a plate covered with damp tissue paper then placed in pots. I'm using a premium quality potting mix to start them off. 

The photo is of the first one to emerge on day 5. I'll update as more break thru. 

Also I have added an old photo of what this strain came from 15 years ago. Poor quality I know but what can expect from an old polariods.

Your polaroids remind me of Northern Lights from Bulldog Seeds, which I have grown outdoors before.  Mine had grown with relatively slender Sativa-like leaves, but the plants grew to only about 1,5 meterss in height, and the internodal distance remained relatively short. 

However, some other members here have described the Northern Lights leaves as broader than mine had grown.

Where did you get the seeds?

And WOW!    That first seedling appears to have 3 cotylin leaves instead of the usual two.  Is that really the case or am I mistaken?

I've never seen that before.  Can you capture a sharp close-up of this seedling so that we can see the triple cotylins?

Seed stock of unknown origin. Just a mixed bag from early on in my life when I was living with a alternative lifestyle family. 

I knew the plant I have now was in there it was just a case of culling out hundreds of seedlings to keep just a few. 

No you are not mistaken it does have triple cotylins and it is a common sight with this plant. 

I spent quite a few years only growing out that specific trait. The double still remains tho.

If you haven't seen it before I'm a little shocked,  I've had it for a while now and didn't give it much thought. Thinking if I have it then others have to.

It's a little bit exciting thinking it could be something different. Looking forward to further discussions. 

I tried to get a better photo but my phone just won't focus any closer. I'll update as it grows.

A quick update day10

All the seeds had sprouted and are doing well.

With exception of one of the triples that had some canine intervention but hopefully it will be ok.

I'll update again in the New Year. ?

Thanks for opening a journal man, looking forward to see what the plant will look like, are these the same seeds as the plant you showed before that was looking like the duckfoot and smelling earthy? 

 

Wish you all the best for this outdoor season!

Cheers mate 

Yes they are same seed stock as the previous duckfoot style photos. 

I look forward to sharing the grow with the community.

nice it should be interesting then :) I would be curious to smoke to see ^^And saw you let a few males every year to get some fresh seed inbred or you just have the same batch of seeds since forever?

Hi community, 

Apologies for my long absence, but I've had a run of unfortunate luck and don't have any grow journal updates. 

Extended periods of hot days and pests have put an end to this Year's grow.

Not from lack of trying from me but it just wasn't tobe. 

Good thing availability of seed isn't an issue as I went thru some trying to salvage something for the year but it's all part of the game. 

I promise to start my grow earlier next year so they get a chance to establish themselves before the weather heats up..

 

Just to reply to dust. 

It is a good quality smoke mate.  I've been inbreeding it on and off for the past twenty years.  Some years I selective pick male/  female, other years I don't. 

For a few years I only selected and grew the triple cotylins seed.

Just recently I grew some other strains, a sativa and indica style heritage unknown and they just aren't as good so they won't be back..

I'm going to track down the history of the strain I have so we can all hopefully learn something of its origins. 

 

Roo out:-)

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.
