  1. Joined other cannabis forums that suffer same problem, limiting membership or clamping down on users. Neither seems to work when the forums must also remain anonymous. Catch 22. Just thought I should mention, I found the forum function confusing. It is starting to make more sense as I read more sections. Notice a lot of people registering over the last 15 minutes. Cheers, HG
  2. I’m interested in old Moroccan landrace strains that have been saved? Because of the original climatic adaption, remaining in genetics. Our climate is perfect for Pakistan Valley and Afghani #1. Durban and Moroccan strains should also grow extremely well. Downloading your video to watch offline. --------------------------------------------------------------- Watched: I had a flat stemmed plant in a Skunk hybrid, the plant slowed in growth with no stretch. The stem was flat and corrugated. I thought the plant seed embryo may have been damaged, but no idea really. My other qualification is in the use and development of Sub Surface drip in Australia. We use Israel inline design, with modified flap preventing back flow blockage when system is switched off. The temperatures described in Morocco are very similar to Australia. I have developed method to grow outdoor seedlings in our hottest days, in order to be sexually mature and switch through day length after 6 weeks growth. We have very different conditions to countries like US or Netherlands. After comments about the stickiness of darker hybrid, it would have to be a breeding candidate for that reason alone. Sad to hear there is no pure remaining. Is the lighter hash more Landrace? I guess the other guide in seed preservation would be shorter flowering. HG
  3. Anyone travelled the Riff Mountains of Morocco for Hashish Strains. Are the modern Moroccan Strains popular? I suspect it is too late with the Commercialisation of strains. Has anybody stored older genetics for breeding purposes? Cheers, HG
  4. I am a horticulturist breeding and growing Cannabis for medical users. Never been a social smoker, or needy buddy. Mostly smoke leaf. Nothing in common with cannabis seed industry practices. Serves me no good purpose to point out how low this general industry has stooped. My best genetics are a Skunk1 Haze cross grown and stabilised over 20yrs. More recently I have crossed many strains, and still sorting through them. Pakistan Valley and Afghani grow extremely well in our hot Australian climate. High CBD plants are easy to grow and breed, with local adaption to boot. Some medical users get benefit from high CBD strains, but those retired with injuries, want high THC. As one medical user explained, this low THC sativa dominant plant has me climbing the walls. These are the strains I wish to obtain for future breeding. Durban – CannaBioGen Bubba Kush S1 – Humboldt CSI Ghost OG – CannaVenture Skunk #1 – White Label HG
  5. I put a lot of work into developing Custom Coco Nutrient from General Hydroponics flora products. We also developed Custom GH profiles for Nutrient Film Technique. Everything was working beautifully, medical patients were happy. Then Scotts Miracle-Gro purchased the hydroponics nutrients manufacturer General Hydroponics. The company stopped supporting use for growing cannabis and Nutrient Sales in Australia Product is often no longer available or three times the cost.
  6. Germination in Rockwool I have a temperature controlled area 27.6 to 28C or; 81.68 to 82.4F. A bottle cap of water, placed where rockwool normally sits, has stable water temp of 27C or 80.6F I soak a single seed in strait rain water @ph 6.2, changing water every 30-40 minutes until seed sinks. When sunk, I leave to soak another 30 minutes before planting in rockwool point down. I push the seed down, so the top of seed is 9mm from surface. Note: If you fail to go deep enough and plant the wrong way up, the root will grow up out of rockwool Nutrient: GH Seedling Mix. Micro – 2 Grow –1 Bloom – 1 Silica – 0.1 I ph down water before adding silica, so the ph rise is neutralised. It is important that ph remains below 6 during preparation, or silica can fall from suspension and become unavailable. Rockwool preparation - Note: We use Eutech ppm measure. Soak Rockwool at 100ppm ph 5.2 and leave for 1-2 hours. We place soaked rockwool in mesh cage to fully shake out water, without damage to rockwool. Soak Rockwool again at 40ppm ph 6.2 Shake only 3 times, so block is still heavy and half saturated. Plant seed. Seed Nutrient application: I use 40ppm ph 6.2 to resoak rockwool, if needed before seed germinates. Shake only 3 times, so block is still heavy and half saturated. At first true leaf I use Seedling 150ppm ph 6.2 Third true leaves, Seedling 160ppm ph 5.9-6 Transplant to Coco, Coco Grow 170ppm ph 5.8 Pre Flower, Coco Grow 180ppm ph 5.8 This is not a guide, just sharing what I do. There is no such thing as a perfect nutrient mix, just the right time to apply it.
  7. HomeGrown GH-Flora Coco - Alternative Nutrients for 2020.pdf Weigh out Epsom Salts with 0.01 gram resolution Scales. Use Syringe with compensated nozzle for liquids. Silica is added at 0.4ml (I ph down water before adding silica, so the ph rise is neutralised). It is important that ph remains below 6 during preparation, or silica can fall from suspension and become unavailable. Stages of application were loosely based on my 40day skunk. For most plants I switch from Grow to Early Bloom at around 12-14 days 12/12. Just give the plant what it needs.

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.
