    Hey! Iam in this contest also and iam very excited to grow the Sweet Valley Kush as I love kushes, but have never grown this. The grow is like usual with the greenhouse mineral feeding in veg and flower. Vegging in 1L pots and moved to 6L pots for flowering. Just a peat, compost and coarse vermiculite mix for media in round net pots. (Last few grows have been without the homemade compost, and now I have rats visiting my compost, so iam kinda fearful to see how it will work). Grown under dimmable 220w 3500K COB LEDs. ATM we're in veg week 2 with 8plants under 50w 5000K COB. After this grow is coming a grow with The Doctor, but maybe I have to squeeze a Blueberry OG grow in between..

    Time for a mid week update on the 4 Sweet Valley Kush plants as we approach the end of week 5 of flowering. Since I sprayed the dirt in the root pouches with a solution of 3% hydrogen peroxide I have not seen any more gnats and the top of the dirt was nice and dry this morning they were due to be watered yesterday, but I need to make sure the dirt is really dry before they get a drink. I will probably water them tomorrow afternoon which will make it 5 days since I last watered. Here are some images I took earlier. All 4 Sweet Valley Kush plants in grow tent under LED. All 4 Sweet Valley Kush plants in normal light. SVK-B#1 top of the plants main stalk (high res). SVK-B#1 top buds (high res). SVK-B#2 top of the plants main stalk (high res). SVK-B#2 top buds (high res). SVK-M#1 top of the plants main stalk (high res). SVK-M#1 top buds (high res). SVK-M#2 top of the plants main stalk (high res). SVK-M#2 top buds (high res). I noticed lots of brown spots on the fan leaves on SVK-M#1 (high res). Not sure what has caused this I was looking on the Grow Weed Easy web site at plant problems but can't find any images that look the same. The brown spots are definitely marks on the leaves they do not rub off, are these cause by the fungus gnats? At about 6.30pm when the LED went off the temperature in the tent was 30C so I have got the 18 inch fan running pushing air through the room and last time I looked the temperature was down to 26C I will leave the fan running until I crash out later around 10pm. Happy growing...

    A bit slow updates on the competition but things are coming along real great. I will do a bit of comparison to the other plants I'm growing smell, size and so on but if you want to check them out I've posted on the thread many times the link so you can see the other plants. The Sweet Valley Kush plants compared to the other plants show very distinct indica features, wide fan leaves and a bit shorter than the others however they have caught up to the other plants at the grow, the tallest plant is a Church plant and it's over 2 meters tall however the Church plants are showing sativa features with much thinner leaves. The Sweet Valley Kush has a lovely smell, very kushy but I'm growing 5 strains so I love going from one plant to the other and comparing the smell. It hasn't been like the rest of Europe with a heat wave in Sweden and the temperature has started to drop significantly however in the swamp the temperature is much warmer than in the forest surrounding it. Some of the pictures were taken a couple of days earlier when I was finding a different point of entry to the swamp so I don't always come from the same point of entry however I follow the game trails in the swamp and it's truly like a maze These pictures were taken a couple of days earlier so they are a bit shorter on this pic Here are the same plants from this evening and they've grown since I was there

    This morning at 6.30am there was lots of blue sky very few clouds and it was very bright so I moved SVK-B#2 outside into the yard where she has been most of the day there was a brief shower so I put her in the shed and 20 minutes it brightened up so I moved her back outside. Here are some images of SVK-B#2 that I took this afternoon. SVK-B#2 outside in the yard. Now for a bit of Sweet Valley Kush bud porn. Buds on a lower stalk (high res). Bud at the top of the lower stalk (high res). Bud mid way up plant (high res). Buds on main stalk near top of plant (high res). Top bud side view (high res). Top bud top view (high res). The forcast is for rain this evening and a nice day with sunshine again tomorrow, it looks like we will get more crappy days but we seem to be getting more sunny days than shit days so its all good, I just need to nurse SVK-B#2 through the next week or two. You can clearly see in the images that the trichomes are all nice and milky and there are a few amber trichomes too and the buds are all little fatty boom booms full fo resin, so she is getting close to harvest now. More updates to follow soon, happy growing...

    Time for another update! Girls are progressing well. Since I last updated I have lollipoped the girls, a few sticks added to spread the plants a little more, and a little light defoliation to allow light to the lower branches. I flipped on the 1st of August to 12/12 and am now using the short flower PF. I have changed by light for a Lumatek 315 CMH for flowering. I have also sprayed the plants twice this week with my bug spray, as noticed a couple of bug shits on my lower leaves. Any questions ask , be back soon.

    Time for another update , so it's flip time tomorrow, always have a thing about starting flower on a Monday. I am going to change the 250w MH to a Lumatek 315w CMH, I really love this flowering lamp compared to the 400w HPS I used in the past. This week they have just had some gentle LST and on 1g per litre of grow from powderfeed.

    Another week passes and another week nearer to flowering. I have continued to feed them 1g per litre of the Grow powderfeed and they are coming on well and looking lush. I have topped the top few branches on each plant , and also done a little LST and managed to snap the SVK . I have also done a light defoliated to enable more light to penetrate to the lower branches.

    Sorry for not updating but my wife and I just had a son but I happened to have the weather on my side, it never got to hot and there also was some rain. I went out two days after getting home the first time just to check the plants and water if necessary, two days later I went there to do more work clearing the reeds and feeding the plants that needed it. I had removed the chicken wire of two plants and I hoped that they would be able to stand on their own, I came back two days later and they had fallen to the ground so I got some support for the two but they started growing curved however they are doing just fine. Two other plants are growing really thick and bushy with WIDE fan leaves, also the one that got damaged during transport seems like it's not going to make it but it's still struggling so I'm letting the little girl grow despite. I also moved two other plants that's on my other journal and the roots have grown through the pots into the soil, I suspect all plants have done that.

    Hi guys, It's getting harder and harder to pick a winner, because honestly, there are a lot of good jobs here. It's hard to choose just one. In this occasion, we have valued the effort, the work and the good way of being. We value a growing diary that we like for its commitment to move forward, learn and do things better. R.G.S., colleague, I congratulate you on your work. You are the winner of the month of May. Cheers, Jose

    I haven't been to the spot because of rain and I've been busy with the baby but I decided to take a look today. I chose the Sweet Valley Kush because it was supposed to be shorter however two of the plants are probably over 2 meters tall and are as tall as many of the other plants, two of the plants that tipped over are the ones that are shorter, they are now growing straight up compared to two weeks ago. These plants are great for guerilla but let's hope that autumn this year is forgiving and the cold doesn't come to early.

    The bud from SVK-B#2 has been hanging on the stalk for a week now and the bud is dry and the little stalks make a snapping sound when I break them off the stalk, so I have removed all of the buds from the stalks and then put the bud into a brown paper bag to continue to dry slowly for another week before it goes into a kilner jar. The bud from SVK-B#2 weighed 25.3g in total and the was 2.9g of trim off the buds which I have mixed with the trim from SVK-B#1 which now makes a total of 6.2g of trim from SVK-B#1 and SVK-B#2 which I can use to make QWISO hash, I will use the stalks to make canna butter. I also save all of the fan leaves from the plants, which I use in a spliff instead of shag (baccy), I quit smokin shag 3 years ago. Here are some images I took. Bud from SVK-B#2 ready to be cut off the stalks All of the bud from SVK-B#2 cut off stalks in a heap. Bud from SVK-B#2 on scales 25.3g in total. Bud from SVK-B#1 moved from brown paper bag into a kilner jar. All of the bud from SVK-B#2 in brown paper bag to continue drying slowly for another week. Trim from SVK-B#2 on scales 2.9g in total. All the trim from SVK-B#1 and SVK-B#2 on scales 6.2g in total. Here is a bit of bud porn these are buds from SVK-B#1 The bud from SVK-B#1 smells a lot nicer after a week in the brown paper bag drying slowly, the aroma is a bit more complex now, the smell is earthy, herby sort of medicinal, with a subtle fruity note as well now. I have notice when I smell the live bud there is a subtle bubble gum aroma I also noticed this with the Kings Kush and Jack Herer autos too. I am glad that my outdoor run is over the weather over the last week has been awful it has rained a lot and today it is pissing down and really windy its proper wicked an wild out there, even the dog doesn't want to go outside for a piss he has got his little legs crossed. I will update again next week when the bud from SVK-B#2 is ready to go in a kilner jar. Happy growing...

    Hello Hunters, After a good drying of the ice-o-lator, it is time to share with you the Sweet Valley Kush ice-o-lator pressing process. Material you need: - Glass bottle with hot water (80c°-100c°) - insulated potholders - Nylon Turkey Oven Bags - Parchement Paper - Nitrile Glove - ... ...and last but not least you need the good Sweet Valley Kush ice-o-lator First step is to put the ice-o-lator in the nylon bag Secondly just put the bottle on the bag. Iin this step you can see the quality of the resin, more speed the resin melt below the glass bottle, more the quality is high. That's crazy when you compare between morocan hash and a good ice-o-lator!) So now its time to roll the glass bottle gently and slowly on the ice-o-lator... After 10 minutes of rolling, the ice-o-lator make a mass, like a fine pancake. (You can see the amazing resin quality on this pics :-) ) After 30 minutes of pressing and rolling with the glass bottle in the nylon bag, the decarboxylation of the resin is optimal and it is time to make a ball, the world famous "Temple Ball" For that you take the resin mass out and you roll the resin in a beauty ball form in your hands... Here are the end result Another 7 days of drying before storing for the curing phase. Next update i will share with you the evolution of the "Temple Ball" in the glass jar during the curing phase so stay tuned!

    I removed the roots and dirt for SVK-B#1 from the root pouch to recycle the dirt and to have a look at the state of the root system the roots look very healthy to me they are all a nice white colour no brown or rotted roots which shows the bio grow powder feed does a good job. All the bud still on the stalks from SVK-B#1 hanging in my bathroom drying. Happy growing...

    Time for a progress update on the 2 outdoor Sweet Valley Kush plants at the end of week 7 and start of week 8 of flowering. On Thursday morning at 6.30am it was a bit cloudy and dull so I switched on the fluorescent tubes and left both of the plants in the shed, by about 8.30am the cloud had thinned out and the sun was shining so I moved both plants outside into the yard where they stayed until 6.30pm when I put them back into the shed and locked up for the night. On Friday morning at 6.30am it was great lots of blue sky with a few beany fluffy clouds and nice and warm, so I moved both f the plants outside into the yard to enjoy the sunshine. At about 9am I went out to check the weather and have a look at the plants and I noticed some bud rot just below the top of the main stalk on SVK-B#1 so I had a wash got my arse in gear checked my emails did a few maintenance jobs for clients and then I had a brew and started to harvest SVK-B#1 I did not want to risk cutting the bud out and trying to nurse her along and maybe risk losing more bud, so I got a cardboard box to put the fan leaves in and a bin liner I use to cover the work top and my clippers and took them out to the shed along with a small plastic bag. I then took some photos of the plants and the top of SVK-B#1 at the site of the bud rot, then I moved the plant into the shed and used the plastic bag like a glove to get hold of the top of the plant and cut the stalk just below the bud rot site.to hopefully keep the spores contained. Then I stripped all of the fan leaves that were mashed up by bugs and threw them on the floor to go in the bin, the undamaged fan leaves I put in the cardboard box I use these like shag (baccy) if I want a smoke but not to get high or if the bud is sticky and it makes the bud go further. Once I had removed all of the big fan leaves I cut the stalks off the main stalk then used my clippers to remove the rest of the fan leaves and threw them into the box with the rest, then I rolled up the stalks in the bin liner and put them in the cardboard box and took it inside. I then trimmed all the bud on the stalks and set up a couple of string lines, these are two pices of string with the ends tied together to form a loop I trap this using the lid of a man hole in the bathroom ceiling then I twist the string and tie the other end to the top of the shower cubicle door frame. I then pull the string apart and push the stalk into the gap in the string then release the string so it grips the stalk it is a really simple way to easily and securely hang the stalks I saw this technique on a video on You Tube this is how they dry tobacco to dry the leaves I prefer to hang the stalks like this to dry the bud rather than using a clothes rack to do the same thing, the stalks can fall off the clothes rack this way the string has hold of them and they are not taking up floor space, a tidy solution. Last night at 6.30pm when I went outside to put SVK-B#2 in the shed for the night it was still hot and quite humid battle damaged Mr moose and his thermometer was reporting about 26C so I decided to leave her outside until it cooled off, at about 9pm it was much cooler and there was a nice breeze so I put her in the shed for the night and locked up. This morning at 6.30am the sky was blue with just a bit of cloud so I put SVK-B#2 outside in the yard and by about 8.30am the sun was high enough in the sky to shine directly into the back yard and SVK-B#2 was basking in the sunlight. Here are some images I took yesterday. Both the Sweet Valley Kush plants enjoying the sunshine. The bud rot site at the top of the main stalk on SVK-B#1 (high res). Close up of the top of the main stalk and the bud rot (high res). All of the fan leaves from SVK-B#1 in a cardboard box. Triming the bud on the bud on the stalks. All of the trim from the buds in an old icecream container. Close up of of some freshly trimmed Sweet Valley Kush bud (high res). I have given SVK-B#2 a good once over and she seems to be OK probably because she has a bit more space between her nodes, so I will keep her going and keep a close eye on her as we forward, the dirt in her root pouch was dry today so at about 4.30pm I gave her 2 litres of water. When I went out into the yard at 6.30pm it was still warm and humid so I have left her outside until it cooled down about 8pm I will moved her back into the shed and locked up for the night. I will update again tomorrow with some images of the bud on SVK-B#2 Happy growing...

    Time for a progress update on the 2 outdoor Sweet Valley Kush at the end of week 6 and start of week 7 of flowering. On Thursday morning at 6.30am it was warm and bright there were no clouds just a blue sky the temperature inside the shed was about 20C so I put both of the plants outside in the yard I checked the temperature after 30 minutes and it was about 24C but not in direct sunlight. By 8.30am the temperature in direct sunlight was about 28C and by 10am it was about 34C and mid afternoon it was about 38C then it got very cloudy and dull and we had a couple of thunderstorms the first was quite quick I dashed outside and put the plants inside the shed, within 30 minutes the sun was shining again so I put them back outside. But about an hour later it got cloudy and dull again and so I left the plants outside the rain was forcast for the evening, but suddenly there was a rumble of thunder and it started to rain lightly, by the time I got to the plants the rain drops were massive I put both plants into the shed and left them in the shed under the fluorescent tubes. I left the shed door open to ventilate the shed and I left them until 7pm before I switched off the fluorescent tubes and locked up for the night the temperature in the shed was about 28C and there is now a nice cool breeze to help things cool down, ready for another hot day tomorrow. Friday morning at 6.30am it was nice warm the sky was blue and the temperature in the shed was about 20C so I moved both of the plants outside into the back yard, I checked the temperature about 30 minutes later and it was about 24C and by mid morning it was about 28C In the early afternoon the temperature was about 28C then it started to get dull and very cloudy and the temperature dropped to about 24C there was some light rain about 3pm so I put them in the shed but it soon passed after 30 minutes and brightened up a bit so I put the plants back outside. The root pouches were light and the dirt was nice and dry so at about 5pm I gave both plants 2 litres of water each the temperature outside was about 26C by 5.30pm it was starting to rain lightly so I moved the plants into the shed under the fluorescent tubes, at 6.30pm the temperature inside the shed was still about 26C when I switched off the fluorescent tubes and locked up for the night. On Saturday morning at 6.30am it was dull very cloudy and raining so I switched on the fluorescent tubes the temperature in the shed was about 20C by 9am the cloud had thinned out and the sun was shining and the temperature was about 22C by lunch time the temperature in direct sunlight was about 32C and in the early afternoon it reached about 36C. At 6.30pm when I put the plants in the shed for the night the temperature was about 22/4C inside the shed. On Sunday morning at 6.30am it was dull and very cloudy and raining when I opened the shed so I switched on the fluorescent tubes the temperature was about 18C inside the shed, by mid morning the temperature was about 20C and in the afternoon it reached about 22C it was dull and cloudy and rained all day, so the plants stayed inside, at 6.30pm when I locked up the temperature inside the shed was about 20C This morning my alarm did not go off the battery was flat on my iPaq, so it was just after 7am when I went outside to the shed the weather was dull and cloudy so I switched on the fluorescent tubes the temperature was about 18C and by 9.30am the cloud thinned out and the sun came out so I moved the plants out into the yard and the temperature in direct sunlight was about 26C when I checked an hour later it was about 32C Mid afternoon the temperature reached about 36C in direct sunlight, unfortunately Mr Moose got knocked over this morning and he got damaged his legs have now broke and there is an air bubble in the mercury or whatever the substance in the glass tube is, so I am guessing the temperature inside the shed was about 24C when I locked up at about 7pm tonight. This afternoon I measured the plants and SVK-B#1 is now 54cm tall and SVK-B#2 is now 61cm tall the buds on the plant have closed up now and they are quietly fattening up as they move towards weeks 8 and 9 of flowering. Here are some images I took yesterday afternoon. Both of the Sweet Valley Kush plants in the shed Now for a bit of bud porn... SVK-B#1 bud at bottom of the plant. SVK-B#1 bud around middle of the plant. SVK-B#1 bud at the top of the plant. SVK-B#2 bud at bottom of the plant. SVK-B#2 bud around middle of the plant. SVK-B#2 bud at the top of the plant. The weather forcast for the next couple of days is crap but it should be back to more warm sunny days again at the start of August. More updates to follow, happy growing...

    Hello hunters, The Sweet Valley Kush is now harvested, hand trimmed and are now in the drying process... I use the "wet trimming" technique and i love this way because is more easy to trim wet plants and i think with less trichomes damages... For the first 3 days of drying i use a dehumidifier to remove most of the hummidity in the drying room and that quickly as possible, then I turn off the dehumidifier and let dry more slowly between 4 and 7 days in dark (depending on the environment). After this drying phase, I will put the buds in cardboard boxes to slowly continue the drying phase for 4 to 7 days. Then will come the curing ...

    A long overdue update on here for The Doctor. Been feeding her mineral Hybrid nutrients (does both veg & flower) I moved her from her spot in the nettles, where she had been blown over, and had stayed blown over for a few days. By last weekend, in her new spot with the others, she had straightened herself out a bit.

    Time for an update at the end of week 5 and the start of week 6 of flowering for the 4 Sweet Valley Kush. All the plants are doing great I have kept a close eye on them after watering and no more fungus gnats have appeared and the surface of the dirt in the root pouches dried out by the next evening, the dehumidifier has been doing its job, its little tank was half full this morning so I emptied it. Each day I rotate the plants around the tent and rotate the plants rather than just leave them in one position most of the time so that the stalks against the wall get their share of light, all the stalks do time against the wall of the tent and facing the centre of the tent getting lots of light so the buds are as even as they can be growth wise. When I was taking some photos of the plants earlier this evening I noticed that SVK-B#2 looked like she was ready for a drink, her fan leaves were all droopy, yet the other plants look fine, when I lifted her out so I could take some photos she was really light, she was nearly floating. So I mixed 1g of the bio enhancer per litre and gave SVK-B#2 2ltr of the solution that will take her to the end of week 7 then its just water for weeks 8 and 9, I will give SVK-B#1 the same amount of the bio enhancer when she is ready for a drink probably tomorrow or Tuesday. Here are some images I took earlier. All four Sweet Valley Kush in grow tent just after LED went off. All four Sweet Valley Kush in a row note the droopy fan leaves on SVK-B#2 at the end on the righ side. SVK-B#1 top of the main stalk. SVK-B#1 bud at top of plant close up.

SVK-M#2 bud at top of plant close up. When SVK-M#1 and SVK-M#2 are ready for a drink I will give them some short flowering feed and some of the booster, then their next drink will be just water and they are back in a routine of alternate feeding and watering. I am really pleased with progess so far they are all quietly building bud and they still have 4 weeks to go so they should be nice and fat. Happy growing...

    This afternoon I emptied the root pouch for SVK-B#2 to checkout the roots and recycle the dirt and again just like SVK-B#1 her root system looks like it were nice and healthy, it is a shame about the bud rot I should have sprayed them with a 1% solution of hydrogen peroxide to avoid it. Root system for SVK-B#2. Root system for SVK-B#2 close up. And a freshly cooked batch of brownie mix cooling. I remembered I had some canna butter in the freezer so I crack up a brownie mix and got it cooked once it cooled early evening I sliced it up and put it into a container to keep it fresh then I had a brew and ate a piece, for quality control purposes and I can testify it works. Anyhoo the bud from SVK-B#2 is in the brown paper bag on top of the grow tent drying slowly I have the small plastic container I use to soak seeds in the mouth of the bag so air can flow in and out freely and I also turn the bag twice per day, if the buds sweat onto the bottom of the bag when I turn it over it dries out and the bud gets jiggled about too, it definitely smells better. I will update at the end of the week when the bud from SVK-B#2 is ready to go into the kilner jar. Happy growing...

    Muchas gracias amigos por la ayuda que me dais siempre me siento privilegiado por poder contar con vosotros @g22 @ShaggyGrower @gasmeter @OG.Naj sois geniales muy grande para mi contar con esa ayuda, Amigo Shaggy entiendo que la leche no es una manera muy higiénica si que les brindo a las hojas una especie de protección pero las larvas seguían paseando por encima e puesto como dices las plantas en la terraza les quite algunos peziolos muy afectados y trate un poco más con diatomeas veremos si consigo matar el bicho ✌️ desconocía que el peróxido de hidrógeno sirviera para añadir al alimento en las plantas y las protejiese de plagas pero seguro que es eficaz viendo para lo que se aconseja el producto G22 a ver si tenemos suerte y ponen el producto ese que comentas que solo tienen en grow shop americano y podemos probar la efectividad, de momento como dice og.Naj le voy a dar menos de beber a las niñas Hoy e tenido un día bastante completo con las plantas de exterior les di tratamiento bacillus thuringiensis para prevenir la 🐛 en todo momento desde ya También hice una extracción con los restos de white rhino del año pasado aquí dejo fotos de los resultados Thank you very much friends for the help you give me I always feel privileged to have you @ g22 @ShaggyGrower @gasmeter @ OG.Naj you are great great for me to have that help, Friend Shaggy I understand that milk is not a very hygienic way if I give the leaves a kind of protection but the larvae kept walking over and put as you say the plants on the terrace I removed some very affected peioli and try a little more with diatoms we will see if I can kill the bug ✌️ I did not know that hydrogen peroxide was used to add to food in plants and protect them from pests but it sure is effective seeing what the product is recommended for G22 to see if we are lucky and they put the product that you comment that they only have in the American grow shop and we can prove the effectiveness, for the moment as it says og.Naj I will give girls less to drink Today I had a fairly complete day with the outdoor plants I gave them bacillus thuringiensis treatment to prevent 🐛 at all times from now I also did an extraction with the remains of white rhino from last year here I leave photos of the results Probé de hacer la bola del templo de og. Nag con material secado de varios días antes de prensar, no está mal el resultado pienso I tried to make the og temple ball. Nag with dried material several days before pressing, the result is not bad I think Saludos y gracias Greetings and thanks

    Day 18 of flower and the stretch is over . I have used some sweet tubs to get a level canopy . I have removed some more of the lower leaves and buds, this is something I hate to do as i never remove enough (@OG.NAJ) . I continue to use half a scoop of short flower feed , for 5 litres of water. I love the way it drops the PH from 7.5 down to 6.3., EC was 0.7. So will monitor that after I start with the PK booster this week. Had about 10 balls on the Platinum Valley , but after chatting to the breeder and OG.NAJ I have removed them and I will keep a close eye on her/it. I have not seen any new bug shit so I think my bug spray has got rid of the pest , I have also added a sticky strips to the tent.

    Day 8 of flower I have switched to the short flower powderfeed this week and have given the girls 1g per litre. I also added a little calmag as I think I see a small deficiency. I have also sprayed the plants twice this week with the organic bugs spray, just to prevent any bugs , as I have not had any new bug shit on the leaves this week. All the girls are staked and spread out and extra support provided.

    This morning at 6.30am when I went outside to the shed it was pissing down and the sky was full of dark rain clouds, so I switched on the fluorescent tubes and left SVK-B#2 in the shed where it was nice and dry. I went inside and had something to eat and had a look at the newspaper to see what those polystricksters are up to then about 9am the weather had healed up and it was bright and sunny outside, so I moved SVK-B#2 outside into the yard into the sunshine. As I was looking at her I suddenly noticed a bit of bud rot that seemed to be only on one bud, so I decided that the best plan would be to cut and harvest her to save the rest of the bud my usual approach in this situation. I then took care of a couple of little jobs, then I had a brew and then I went outside and moved SVK-B#2 into the shed and stripped off all of the large fan leaves, then I started cutting off stalks from the bottom of the plant upwards and cutting off the smaller fan leaves with clippers. I cut the stalk off the fan leaves then throw the stalk away and throw the fan leaves into a cardboard box to dry. Once I had removed all of the stalks and stripped the fan leaves I brought the stalks and fan leaves inside and then I trimmed the sugar leaves on the bud on the stalks and hung them up so the bud can dry. Here are some images I took while I cut and harvested the plant. Bud rot near top of plant looked like only one bud was affected when first spotted. SVK-B#2 in the shed ready to be harvested. All the stalks harvested from the plant and the fan leaves removed. Here is the real extent of the bud rot all the bud on the top few nodes of the main stalk. Indoors with the bud on the stalks trimmed ready to hang and dry. Bud trim. SVK-B#2 bud on stalks hung up drying. I will update next week when the bud is dry and I trim it off the stalks. Happy growing...

    Time for a quick progress update on the 4 indoor Sweet Valley Kush plants as we near the end of week 4 of flowering. All of the plants are growing nicely and building buds, yesterday the dirt in the root pouches was getting dry and they were nice and light so I gave SVK-B#1 and SVK-B#2 just 2 litres of water each and I mixed 1.4g or short flower power feed in 2 litres of water which I then gave to SVK-M#1 and SVK-M#2 2 litres of the feed and water mix. Here are some images I took before I watered the plants. Here are some images I took before I watered the plants. SVK-B#1 top of the plant (high res). SVK-B#1 top bud close up (high res). SVK-B#2 top of the plant (high res). SVK-B#2 top bud close up (high res). SVK-M#1 top of the plant (high res). SVK-M#1 top bud close up (high res). SVK-M#2 top of the plant (high res). SVK-M#2 top bud close up (high res). All 4 plants have been losing large fan leaves low down on the plants were they do not get much light because the tent is crowded which is inevitable, but apart from that they are all doing great. I am really pleased with progress so far and looking forwards to the next few weeks. Happy growing...

    Time for another progress update on the 4 indoor Sweet Valley Kush at the end of week 3 and start of week 4 of flowering. The dirt in the root pouches was dry today so I mixed 0.4g of the booster with 2 litres of water for SVK-M#1 and SVK-M#2 and 1g of the enhancer per litre for SVK-B#1 and SVK-B#2 and then I gave then all two litre of the solution at about 5pm this afternoon. Here are a couple of images I took as I prepared to watered and feed the plants. All 4 Sweet Valley Kush girls ready for a drink and feed. GHS powder feed mineral booster and bio enhancer mixed ready to water and feed the 4 Sweet Valley Kush plants. This evening it is quite warm and humid so I had the tent door unzipped and when the LED went off an 18 inch fan pushing air through the room with the door partly zipped but open as much as possible creating a long crack for warm humid air to escape, because the temperature was 29C and the humidity is 70% because I watered. I used to water after the LED went out but now I don't do that I water a few hours before because they transpire hard and increase humidity, so I figured they might as well be transpiring hard when the LED is on and I can open the tent and the light outside the tent is of no consequence and it keeps the humidity in the tent down at this time and later when the LED goes off and I need to close the tent door. I can run the big 18 inch fan to reduce temperature and the humidity so they are not sweating, at this point the buds are still young and wide open so it wont really hurt them, but it is better to have a handle on the thing anyway and control it and optimise as much as possible, and keep the plants as happy as possible so they make nuff buds. I have a question about the booster hopefully you guys can enlighten me, with the enhancer its easy to deal with I give them 1g per litre and they are good for 2 weeks, am I right in thinking that the booster is given weekly on the chart it says 0.02g per litre week 1 and so on. At the moment I am feeding every other watering and the dirt in the root pouches takes 3 days to get dry and they get nice and light so this means they get fed every 6 days or once per week. I am thinking I will play safe with the booster and give it once per week, all 4 plants have been losing lots of fan leaves at the bottom of the plants but this is because of the tent being crowded and these leave not getting enough light so the plants are consuming an dumping them. I will update again tomorrow with some images of the bud on the plants. Happy growing...

    Buenas noches amigos y compañeros de cultivo hoy estuve con las 5 the doctor de exterior me pareció ver comienzo de floración en alguna de ellas mañana o pasado empezare con la comida de floración para ellas aparte voy a exfoliarlas con torta de neem y quizás también bacilus para ir previniendo, adjunto fotos aunque cada vez lo tengo más difícil para sacar una buena captura son exageradamente altas y grandes Good evening friends and cultivation partners today I was with the 5 the outside doctor I thought I saw the beginning of flowering in one of them tomorrow or last day I will start with the flowering food for them apart I will exfoliate them with neem cake and maybe also bacilus to to prevent, I attach photos although every time I have it harder to get a good catch they are exaggeratedly tall and large Saludos Regards

    its been a week since last update, so here we go. i understand its not easy to see alot but i cant change light times so i have to this at nights .. Im glad i topped most, and i will use that technics from now on, having so many strains isnt ideal but i does give us a nice stack for coming year. I got all seeds in water or as tiny new babygirls, it didnt go as hoped make a new growroom but made the mistake using a larger growbag for the start, these are just to big for a good start. The seeds thing is new to me as im used to buy clons, but im learning along the way. Im hoping to get some nice second run, im pleased overall , but some strains arent what i hoped. maybe the seeds where too old, im never giving up on the strains and will re buy new next year, but will mostly use seeds as fresh as possible, the new freebees i got all sprouted and several other strains i paid for didnt .. Anyways Happy growing folks !

    Sorry iam very busy for the moment i dont have time for the plant and i think i have to stop trying to make a medium and use a rady to use medium its logic if you need a lot of soil you not gone lose time to modify the structure

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.
