  1. Congratulations to all the winners
  2. it takes time to take good pictures and writing good reports:D i would never want to halfass it
  3. sorry m8, i would really like to join the comp but i have no time because im back in school after 18~year "break":D first year done in nature/environmental science, actually ive been reading the same things they teach for nearly two decades on my own so the school has been a breeze
  4. Well that might be your opinion but the fact is that you referred to scientific study about mammals and i pointed out that you cant compare animals, mammals in this case to a plant. So if anyone needs to check there sources and scientific interpreting skills it is you, we are talking about plants here and none of your sources said anything about the benefits of honey in soil or for plants. that is my humble interpretation and the other articles you posted do not help the claims as i pointed out but if you see some errors you can point them out instead of claiming im not even qualified to speak about the subject. ''Honey and molasses together sterilize the grow?'' who said that? i sure didnt... i said honey is antimicrobial i.e. it kills microbes good and bad. if you are not growing with organic nutrients you can add hydrogen peroxide(the stuff in honey that kills microbes) in the soil but if you grow with organics it will only do harm
  5. you only want to use molasses as i have explained previously, honey is not good for the soil life molasses are, adding them both would be counter productive if you want sterile grow you can use what ever antimicrobials and fungicides you want i guess but if you want a living soil with healthy population of beneficial bacteria&fungi you dont want honey in it
  6. 1. first and second article you posted talks about Antioxidant properties of jujube honey and its protective effects against chronic alcohol-induced liver damage in mice and Protective effects of buckwheat honey on DNA damage induced by hydroxyl radicals they dont talk about protecting plant dna they talk about MICE a mammal.... 2. ''Around 30 nonaromatic organic acids in honey (previous poster mentioned knowledge of only 1 chelate)'' so? those 30 acids are still not chelating agents.... and acid is not automatically a chelator, chelation is a type of bonding not dissolving.... for example one of the most common chelating agents Ethylenediamine is a basic not acid... 3. The paper you posted ''Previous article states chelating agents make up <5% of honey while this article stats as much as less than 10% which would double the number of 30 chelating agents to 60. Region dictates this more than anything, assuredly http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.278.6565&rep=rep1&type=pdf '' it says in page 4 '' Metal chelating activity of honey samples was very low (<10%)(Fig. 2) compared to the control, EDTA (93.76%), indicating that honey collected from both zones are weak metal ion chelators. '' the article you posted says honey is not good chelator..... ummm did you read what it says? 4. '' To investigate into the antimicrobial and antioxidant potential of six varieties of honey from Mauritius. '' yeah... exactly my point, it is NOT good for soil life i.e. beneficial microbes and fungi, if you want to keep your soil alive you dont want honey in it period. 5. i dont think you know what i was talking about based on the stuff you post, and before you post more i want you to know that growing plants is not about faith or religion it is a scientific endeavour, i hope you learn this before you waste more time finding the magic beans or magic methods
  7. you cant force any plants to flower before they have developed in to mature adults, this is a very common misconception. Typically it takes about 35~days from the day you start germination with the common hybrid strains. Some strains become mature sooner some later than that, fastest plants to mature are the northern autoflowering varietys, usually they take around 20-21days from the start of germination to start of flowering and longest are the tropical sativa varietys
  8. the growth fertilizer 3-0-8 is not a standalone nutrient because it doesnt have phosphorous at all (the zero in middle ) you should be using them both together at different ratios in different stages of growth and bloom or you need to give the plants phosphorous from another source with the grow nutrients also some of the micro nutrients that the plant needs might be in the bloom bottle like magnesium
  9. mmm looks delicious
  10. haha, thanks
  11. It is basically a very old local heirloom or a wild growing variety in the area that has adapted to the local climate and conditions. There is some ambiguity to the term as there are no clear cut definitions of what animal or plant is a true landrace
  12. there is always a chance of plant turning in to ''hermie'' or creating couple male pollen sacks due to enviromental stresses, like from heat, cold, soil drying too much, light cycle changes and so on, there are multiple factors to it and some plants can handle these stresses better than others but there is always a chance that it can happen with any female. it is very common to see just couple pollen sacks around the 4th node in first half of flowering and none after that, so keep watching those lower nodes and branches in the shaded areas, it is more likely to happen there and if you catch them in time you can avoid any seeds
  13. it is a female

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.
