  1. 2 of the lavenders bit the proverbial dust but one is looking surprisingly well the BDs are coming along as many 3 - 4 weekers should pics to follow shortly. thanks for the positive comments.
  2. So we took down 6 plants this time. one PK one Gorilla Grape one Platinum OG and 3 Blue dream we totaled out with just over 49 ounces of med quality Bud. with the HQT from the GG, PK and P-og trim we made just under 2 pounds of budder and one pound of cocoanut oil. at 39g/pound which was stored or made into organic &/or vegan baked edibles from the 13 oz low quality trim we took out 9-10 grams total of 73.u and 45.u IWE. remaining is about 170 so grams of HQT combined w/ some left overs. This will be run into IWE Hopefully we will get 20g - 28g or so IWE that will be pressed into Hash or left as bubble Kief. the next run has entered the Flower room which at the present contains a PK plant that is in week 6 and 2 blue dreams and 3 lavenders all of which are in week 3.
  3. the total weight for the 3 blue dream plants was 1014g of trimmed dried bud and 112g of high quality trim which will be used in an Ice water exaction process the pressed into Hash.
  4. we just brought down another blue dream and it filled up the dry room Plus I ran out of cloths pins... we took just over 11 oz from the first plant so I figure #2 has got to be near 1lb dry there is way more herb here than the dry room pic on page 3 I know another quality problem. Bud pics forthcoming
  5. we took down a single Blue dream plant but due to production constraints wet trimmed weights were not taken dry weights forth coming: below is a pic of the summer drying space where humidity can be more closely controlled. this space double as a nursery where clones are tended for their first few weeks. as you can see there are some substantial sized buds hanging here.
  6. we took down a single Platinum OG plant and after a fairly close trimming and drying it produced 199g (7.107 oz) of high grade organic bud. pics to follow plant dried bud
  7. aint nature great nice work guru... happy smoking ghost
  8. Sorry to have been away from the keyboard . to report we took just under 2kg of wet material with after hanging and removal of remaining stems garnered approx 10 .5 oz of bud. I should really look back upon the last time we took down these two strains to get a more specific comparison. but I am confident that we took down 2oz more than last time. yes these two produced 58g more dried flower than last harvest. which equates into about a 25% increase in flower production. here are some pics from trimming / curing process
  9. Final Indica Growth Pics PK Gorilla Grape Harvest tomorrow pics and weights to follow
  10. sounds like an interesting twist . we also wait 4 days . I suspect that the composition of the media has something to do with it. we co not use coir at all but a fair amount of peat vermiculite and perlite.
  11. well no pics this week I'll get back with them next week when we start to bring the BLD girls down. But suffice it to say that the indica colas continue to swell and are now the size of cucumbers. The flush featured a null to the high ppm reading during the first flushed gallon of moisture through the medium to a low 350 ppm for the last gallon moving from 6.9 pH to 7.2 ph . during the next week I will continue to monitor the pH and the further turning of the leaves but don't feel the need for aggressive flushing beyond a cursory final flushing in 4-5 days where again the ppm in and ppm out will be taken and noted. I wish we have the ability to further control the room especially night time temp in an effort to get the leaves to turn their beautiful purple tones. but with supply air running the the lower to upper 90F it tis difficult to maintain low optimum night time temps. ironically root wad temps are running nearly optimum between 68f -72f so growth is not really effected. although I believe P uptake is still vigorous ( which I believe allows the plant to produce inflorescence for a longer period ) . furthermore extremely low humidity levels of the supply air (15% relative) have produced astounding trichrome development. noted more so on the statia dominate and significant strain plants but also a quite noticeable relative increase on the Indica dominate BLD strains. The P- OG is not comparable to the last run the buds are so much larger which I attribute to both added veg time and an more aggressive feeding cycle. as well as further enrichment and maturity of the media it self. There is some noticeable turning of the P-OG leaves. and it is my assumption that these will hit the ground before the 70 day mark. The Blue Dream buds are basically nugs the size of a mans fist and the main colas are more or less the size of 24oz beer cans. the BD still have very few amber hairs (pistle) the vast majority are cream colored. Although the buds are no where near mature they are literally encrusted with thrichromes of which some are cloudy and mostly clear glands. I will have ample opportunity to keep an eye on these beauties in the upcoming few weeks.
  12. I dig the fabulous furry freak brothers . especially Phineas and Fat Freddys Cat classic stoner comics from Austin Texas I grew up near there in the 70's isnt it funny that smokie's nose is a giant spliff?
  13. one third is a bit high I suspect. I find that 20% or trimmed weight is often really close. at 450g you will have 16oz of dried product. by my reckoning you will get about 460 ish grams of smoke-able reefer. which is one big bag of kick ass natural. regardless enjoy the heck out of it.
  14. well tomorrow if the first of two flushes for the indicas . we will use 10-20 gallons of water to flush these 2 plants in approx 1 ft3 of medium 5-10 gal each we use 0 EC r/o water PH adjusted to 6.3 - 6.5 pH after adding a prescribed dose of Clearex from Botanicare. the process is to add 1 gal to each plant and let that soak in . then add 1 more gal to get the juice flowing then slowly add the remainder 1/2 gal at a time. at this point pH and EC reading will be taken of the effluent to determine the amount of additional flushing that may be required. the last gal of water will get a prescribed dose (40ml) of molasses based product and a mag / iron/ cal supplement, of course the final flush wont contain neither of these two supplements but will have the flushing agent just to make sure the last bit of salt build up will be swept away. even w/o adverse EC and pH reading this final flush will be made to some extent. then the plants will be allowed to finally mature under a drying regimen where little or no moisture will be added to the medium. and then my (OK second) favorite part of the process chop chop chop YEEEEEaahhh..
  15. Ok we went with about a 20-25% defoliation limited to the lower branches and sparse defoliation of giant leaves among the upper and we have been producing nicely. there has been some dried up leaves and premature branches among the lower which were also taken off and our bud production seems more than satisfactory. our subjects are by no means compact with the sativa hybrids topping over 60 inches from soil to top of plant and indica's running about 32-36" this is by no means a critical study but this level of defoliation seems to be by no means overly detrimental to the plant.

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.
