45 posts in this topic

so i've doing everything right? by your old time growers knowledge - how much should i expect to smoke?

 

my expections is 30g a plant  by things i read- is it fantasy or i might be right?

 

here is some photos from now -

and i think ill get ph meter and we work it from there

 

and another questions unrelated to cannabis - i bought this tree to hide my grow from view at least partially it grows allright but it looks unhealty at the base - hope you know what his problem - i gave him some of the supermix week ago and it started growing but still looks like shit at the base

Looks like the little brother is still  not very happy even after the problem with its germination. When you buy the seeds and literally every single seed is precious then you can not perform the selection of the best looking sprouts and young plants. Therefor people go with extreme methods to make it 100% rate. Personally i think that the best way to germinate is directly into the soil, avoiding to even touch the seed when its not necessary, or exposing it to light and moist. After you have plants as big as these ones on the pictures it does not do nearly as much harm to transplant them into the bigger or permanent medium.

should i toss him out because i worked like 4 weeks on it and it look pretty rubbish- will it produce below 20 grams?(i know there's no exact telling but based on your knowledge of this strain) if so i will toss him out and put another one in the the pot?

 

 

also he shows a liltle browning in the new leafs what does that mean?

 

i've mixed some fretlizer with water waiting for evening to give it to the big one

is there any organic way to give them the pk-13-14 like rotten apples on the soil or somthing i dont mind buying

You should have replaced him with another seed as soon as you notices that he is falling behind first or 2nd week because you limited the number on two plants total. If you start a new seed now its  going to  be behind the big brother significantly but you would have two perfectly healthy big plants in the end. So start another one right now and if it overgrows the little brother then toss him.

Rotten apples may enhance the soils acidity and attract some nasty bugs. Better darken some banana skin and egg shells in the oven, crush them and add to medium. Pore some urine on the soil, not to much.

I've one behind too, don't kill it off it could end up having the biggest yields of all your plants..... some plants that go through stress bounce back even stronger?

You can see plant 3 in my grow had some seed casing problems that deformed the first set of feeder leafs and its a good bit behind now, if your worried about it not catching up with the others then you can top your bigger plants and let the little one catch up?

This is my first time trying hydro, from what I've seen you get bigger yields and a harvest can finish up faster. Also no carrying big bags of soil around and less waste?

Outside in the shade for some time, then before the final transplant keep them exposed to sunlight for a while.

That could be semi outdoor if you have a lamp to use it during nighs and cloudy days. In the previous post I was referring to plants that have been germinated under lamps and have to be transplanted to the permanent medium in the ground outside.

No. You need a light bulb with ballast for that. I use this one for germination and its around 5 Euros along with ballast transformer. Mercury  125W, 6300 Lumens and thats barely enough for one mature plant, plus ventilation, but it would benefit in your case.

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.
