Hi hunters, DAY  18

Today i will post a few pics of the roots they grown rapid

in 4 days (maybe not but i think so)

Ph 6 just under  so nearly rdy for change and increase in food slightly.

The bending maybe working as branch growth has improved, however

overall size is small, which should be helped with amount of root

she now has.

Few more pics

PEACE

Hi hunters

Day 22

The last 4 days have shown lots of growth both in stalk and leaf

development, still a small plant over the last 3 days has been

developing her preflowers and today started to show her first pistel (last 2 pics).

Roots are continuing to grow at a steady rate which is great.

 

Food has been changed from mother to short flower powder feed,

i gave her 24 hrs of 5.5 water just to clean roots in case, then mixed

new food at 1g/10l, if it goes ok il added more slowly as she will

soon be coming into flower.

 

PH between 5.5-6 (using liquid ph test)

Temps are steady 21-27c

RH 40-50%

Thats its for now enjoy the pics they will be flowers soon.

PEACE

Hi hunters

Day 26

The last 4 days there has been lots of growth mainly leaf, internode spacing

seems to be tighting up at the top of elongated stems now the supercool is

on all the time, am still amazed how easy and effective DWC really is.

Roots are a good size in perportion to plant, root zone PH dropped

and is now being corrected steadely with tap water @ 2.5g/10l (non-ph'ed).

Ok now the photos, the plant stands about 150mm tall but leans so stem is longer,

the white thing (125mm tall) is the only place she is tied at the top and the bottom ofc

other has been removed from plant, width of plant is now 370mm roughly.

Hope you enjoy the pics.

PEACE

Hi hunters

DAY 30

Last 4 days have shown no more growth on width she is steady at 370mm (14-15 inchs)

give or take a few mm. Height has increased by roughly 95mm (4 inchs). Roots look

like they have grown a lot, really happy with them,  as Dust said more the better.

Been feeding with non ph'ed water at 3g/10l to bring the ph back up (1 out 1 in method).

She is showing a few light colours on leafs hope it soon go with increased feeding

and when ph is stablised.

Temps and RH still same

Water change in 2 days, will then keep an eye on levels and report how much she

is drinking no problem with water temps this time lets see what happens when we

increase lighting in the next day or so.

Enjoy the pics guys  they getting better evry time.

PEACE

Hi hunters

DAY 34

She is now started to form pistels on the tops, 12 days after first preflower

opened. PH is stable and we are overdue for water change in the morning, 3g/10l

short flowering PF @ PH 6. Lights off  temp has fallen to 19c and day is around

I shall now keep an eye on the amount of water added so i can see how much

she is drinking it seems to be quite a bit.

peace for now

Hi hunters,

DAY 43

As promised the update with the res connected. I attached the top of dwc to

top of a bigger bucket mainly because it was already set up with overflow and

level viewing pipe. With the over flow pipe going back to res  and pump on 

all the time, we have water coming out of the 2 little flow pipes and a slow 

trickle out of the over flow pipe.

All running well with about 40mm (1.5 inchs) between netpot and water level.

PH in root zone about 6 and res the same, res is now covered with black

polythene to keep out any light and contaminants.

RH at 35% at the moment.

Temp bit low at 24c and 19 lights off

Thanks for all comments and views

PEACE

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.
