  1. WOW I am amazed you guys are thinking of abandoning this forum there is 11 years worth of content, that's a lot of stuff to just dump. Lots of great grow journals and useful information that people have shared, just check out online users and you will see lots of guests reading new content and content from the past. Remember you cannot create a grow journal on Facebook or Instagram and bear in mind that social media is trendy and fashionable at the moment these things change, forums existed before social media and there will be lots of forums after people lose interest in social media. For me if you shut this forum it would be crap I do not do social media I saw them coming so I won't be joining you on Instagram or Facebook and I won't be joining 420 I browse it sometimes and there are are interesting articles and information about growing but it ain't Strain Hunters. What makes this forum is the fact there are journals for most of the strains GHS sell which is unique, most people creating journals are growing Green House strains other seed banks do not have a forum like this.
  2. @admin the people at Invision Community provide a solution called IPS Spam Defense https://invisioncommunity.com/features/spam/ Here is the information about this guides https://invisioncommunity.com/4guides/security-and-rules/spam-prevention-r9/ From what I have read this service is free if you have an active license. I am not familiar with this software because you have to pay to get a copy and check it out, so I have not read the support guides is it possible to throttle the number of posts a new user can create so SPAMMERS cannot just register and then create a shit load of SPAM posts? Admins logging into the forum regularly to check for and delete SPAM posts would help to keep the activity timeline clean even if you don't have an active license.
  3. You earned the prize bro your grow journal was absolutely amazing congratulations
  4. Your welcome bro although it did not work out how you hoped it was an interesting experiment and its been great watching it play out
  5. Time for a quick midweek update on the Silver Back girls. On Monday the dirt in the root pouches had dried out so I gave each plant 350ml of water each. The new digital scales I order arrived today, after opening the box and checking the scaled were working OK I noticed that the warranty in the literature that came in the box it says the warranty is a lifetime or 30 year warranty. But on their web site on the product page it says it has a 3 year warranty https://myweigh.com/product/triton-t2-xl-1000/ You need to click on the Additional Information next to the product Description directly below the product image and there it states the product warranty is 3 years. Yet on the FAQ's page https://myweigh.com/faq/ they provide information about a Lifetime/30 Year Warranty and what it covers. There description of what the warranty covers only covers what is not covered, they just contradict themselves it looks to me like there is no warranty they are just chatting shit. The scales work OK and displayed the correct weights when I checked them with some brass weights I have, so if they break I will just buy another set to replace them I certainly won't be wasting my time trying to get them repaired if they start to become inaccurate in the future. Happy growing...
  6. Time for a midweek update on the Cloud Walker girls. On Monday morning at 06.30am when I unlocked the shed and switched on the fluorescent tubes the weather was cloudy and cool so I left the Cloud Walker girls inside the shed. At about 09.00am it had warmed up and the cloud had thinned out so I moved the plants outside into the back yard. The guys working in our next door neighbours garden we already busy in the back yard so I placed the plants at the side of some other ornamental plants with shit loads of foliage to make them harder to spot if they look over the wall. On our neighbours side of the wall they have attached a fence with is higher than the top of the wall, so for anyone to look over the top of the fence they will need to stand on something to see into our yard. The dirt in the root pouches was dry and they both felt light so I checked my journal to see whether or not to water or water and feed and I realise that I have missed a feed I watered them twice. Unfortunately I do not have any scales to weigh out the hybrids powder feed, so I mixed 3ml per litre of Plant Magic Oldtimer organic bloom feed and 3ml per litre of the root stimulant and I made up 4 litres of the feed solution in two 2ltr bottles. Then I took the bottles of feed solution outside and I gave each plant 2 litres of the feed solution, there was not much runoff from either of the plants their roots have obviously conquered the root pouches. At 18.30pm I moved the plants back into the shed and then I locked up for the night. On Tuesday morning at 06.30am when I unlocked the shed and switched on the fluorescent tubes the weather was dull cloudy and it was raining so I left the Cloud Walker girls inside the shed. The weather was crap all day so the plants spent the day in the shed and at 18.30pm I switched off the fluorescent tubes and then I locked up the shed for the night. This morning at 06.30am when I unlocked the shed and switched on the fluorescent tubes the weather was dull cloudy and it was raining so I left the Cloud Walker girls inside the shed. The weather was crap all day so the plants spent the day in the shed and at 18.30pm I switched off the fluorescent tubes and then I locked up the shed for the night. The weather forecast is for light cloud and a gentle breeze tomorrow then it is supposed to get sunny again for a few days, so the plants can soak up some rays for a few days. More updates to follow, happy growing...
  7. Time for an update on the Cloud Walker girls at the end of week four and start of week 5 of flowering. This morning (Thursday) at 06.30am when I unlocked the shed and switched on the fluorescent tubes the weather was cloudy and cool so I left the Cloud Walker girls inside the shed until it warmed up. By about 09.00am there was less cloud and it was warmer so I moved the plants outside into the back yard, then around 10.00am it got really cloudy and there were some guys working in next doors yard they were finishing laying one of those fake lawns and they were also forming a raised flower bed with 9 inch concrete blocks. The raised flower bed is just over the wall next to where the girls were sat, so I thought I would play it safe and put them back into the shed where they stayed until 15.30pm when they had finished work and gone home, so I moved the girls back outside into the back yard for what was left of their day. Then at 18.30pm I moved the plants back inside the shed and locked up for the night. This morning (Friday) at 06.30am when I unlocked the shed and switched on the fluorescent tubes the weather was cloudy and cool so I left the Cloud Walker girls inside the shed until it warmed up. At 09.00am it was less cloudy and warmer so I moved the plants outside into the back yard into a different position where they were still in direct sunlight but next to a few plants so they blended in, there was still one guy finishing off the work in next doors back yard. By about 13.00pm the guy working in next doors back yard had finished and gone away, so I moved the plants to their usual spot, the weather stayed nice for the rest of the day. At 18.30pm I moved the plants back inside the shed and locked up for the night. This morning (Saturday) at 06.30am when I unlocked the shed and switched on the fluorescent tubes the weather was dull and cool so I left the Cloud Walker girls inside the shed. At 09.00am there was less cloud and it was warmer so I moved the plants out into the back yard. Unfortunately at about 10.00am it started to rain lightly so I moved the plants back into the shed within 10 minutes the rain got heavier for about 20 minutes then it was just light rain until 12.30 but it was still very dull. At about 14.00pm the cloud had thinned out and it was much brighter so I moved the plants back outside into the back yard again. The dirt in the root pouches was dry and they both felt nice and light so I gave each plant 2 litres of water. The weather stayed fine for the rest of the day so they plants stayed outside most of the day. At 18.30pm I moved the plants into the shed and locked up for the night. This morning (Sunday) at 06.30am when I unlocked the shed the weather was cloudy and cool so I left the Cloud Walker girls in the shed. By about 07.00am it was raining lightly and it was looking like it was going to be a shit day, but by 08.30am it healed up and the cloud thinned out and the sun was shining. So at about 09.00am I moved the plants outside into the back yard, it looks like the weather will be OK for the rest of the day so they will be able to spend another day outside before I put them in the shed and lock up for the night at 18.30pm. Here are some images of the plants I took yesterday afternoon just before I watered them. Cloud Walker girls side view. Cloud Walker girls top view. Bud on taller Cloud Walker plant. Bud on smaller Cloud Walker plant. Cloud Walker on front row and Passion #1 on the back row. I am pleased with the Cloud Walker girls progress so far yesterday I had to re-arrange the things I have stacked on the work bench to lower the Cloud Walker girls because they are still growing in height, but they have not gone crazy as they stretch. There is a slight vegetable, herby, earthy smell from the bud on the Cloud Walkers it will be interesting to see how that develops as we forward in time, the Passion #1 bud smells piney. Hopefully we will keep getting more sunny days than rainy days. More updates to follow, happy growing...
  8. Time for a progress update on the Silver Back girls they are now 5 weeks old. Yesterday the dirt in the root pouches was dry and they had all grown the seventh node so I topped them at the sixth node and then I gave all of the plants 250ml of feed solution. Here are some images I took. All of the Silver Back girls in the grow tent under the LED. Silver Back plants normal light side view. Silver Back plants normal light top view. The top of a Silver Back plant before being topped. The top of a Silver Back plant after being topped. All of the Silver Back plants after being topped. There was not enough of the feed solution for all of the plants so I had to mix another litre and while I was weighing out the powder grow feed my digital scales were not working properly. When I weight out the powder feed I place a piece of paper on the scales pan and I know from previous use the piece of paper weighs 0.07g but I have to keep tapping the scales pan a few times because it keeps displaying the weight as 0.9g or 0.08g before it settles down and displays 0.07g. Recently it displays the weight of the piece of paper at 0.08g so once it keeps reporting this weight consistently I then zero the scales and start to weigh out the powder feed. Yesterday as soon I zero the scales they kept going wrong they struggled to display a weight below 0.05g after I had to zero the scales a few times and I finally managed to weigh out 0.04g so I halved it and put it into the water and the other half back into the powder feed bag. I was so pissed by the time I had finished I got a lump hammer and smashed them to bits, the scales were only £17 and with shipping they cost £21, I went to the web site where I bought them and looked at some priced at around £70 to £100 but the warranty was similar at around 3 years, so I just got another set of the same scales. It turns out that the scales were actually under warranty, but I would have had to piss about sending them to the manufacturer and I need a replacement set of scales as soon as possible, so it was easier to just buy another set of the same cheap scales. This is the reality of consumerism products designed to break that cannot be repaired, so the only choice is to replace them with the same crappy products and it doesn't matter how much you spend it does not mean the product is better quality. I will let the plants recover this week after being topped, they are now about a month old so next week I will adjust the timer and get them on a 12/12 photoperiod and get them flowering. More updates to follow, happy growing...
  9. Time for a quick mid week update on the Silver Back girls. All the plants seem to be OK after I put them into the root pouches, this morning I noticed that the dirt was dry and they felt light so I gave each plant 250ml of water. Here are some images I took before I gave them a drink. Silver Back plants in grow tent under LED. Silver Back plants side view. Silver Back plants top view. On a couple of the plants a couple of the lower fan leaves have gone yellow I was thinking of feeding them again, but I decided to be cautious and just give them water then feed next time. If they seem to be hungry I can increase the amount of feed in the solution. Happy growing...
  10. Time for a quick mid week update on the Cloud Walker girls. This morning (Monday) at 06.30am when I unlocked the shed and switched on the fluorescent tubes the weather was cool but bright with some cloud so I left the Cloud Walker girls inside the shed. By about 09.00am it had warmed up and the cloud had thinned out so I moved the Cloud Walker girls outside into the back yard. The weather stayed ok for the rest of the afternoon so the plants stayed outside all day, then at 18.30pm I moved the plants back into the shed and locked up for the night. This morning (Tuesday) at 06.30am when I unlocked the shed and switched on the fluorescent tubes the weather was cool but bright with some cloud so I left the Cloud Walker girls inside the shed. By about 08.30am it had warmed up and the cloud had thinned out so I moved the Cloud Walker girls outside into the back yard. At about 15.00pm it got very cloudy and dark and started to rain so I moved the plants back into the shed, but about ten minutes later it stopped raining so I moved the plants back outside into the back yard again. The weather stayed OK for the rest of the afternoon and at 18.30pm I moved the plants back into the shed and locked up for the night. This morning (Wednesday) at 06.30am when I unlocked the shed and switched on the fluorescent tubes the weather was cool but bright with some cloud so I left the Cloud Walker girls inside the shed. By about 09.00am the weather had warmed up and it was brighter too, so I moved the Cloud Walker girls outside into the back yard to enjoy better quality light. The dirt in the root pouches was dry and they felt nice and light so I gave each plant 2 litres of water. Here are a couple of images of the plants I took this afternoon. Cloud Walker plants side view. Cloud Walker plants top view. Little Cloud Walker buds... Cloud Walker girls up front and Passion #1 girls behind. The weather stayed OK for the rest of the day so the plants spent another day outside and at 18.30pm I moved them back into the shed and locked up for the night. Happy growing...
  11. inner luv for the kind words @OG.Naj @R.G.S and @jsm @R.G.S definitely the Exodus Cheese it has such a distinct taste and a great vibe too, I like the Green House Cheese too, but not as much as the Exodus Cheese
  12. Now I have cut the bud from the stalks and put it in Kilner jars its time to do a quick smoke report. Exodus Cheese The bud smells bitter and like chives and vegetal. The taste when smoked is bitter and similar to the smell with a taste like chives with a sort of creamy aspect. The taste is very distinct and I imagine it will evolve over time as the bud cures in the jar. Green House Cheese The bud smells sort of sour with a metalic aspect. The taste when smoked is totally different to the smell the taste is very slight to me it is milky and very smooth. The taste is very slight or subtle hopefully it will evolve as the bud cures in the jar. Happy harvesting and smoking..
  13. The bud has been hanging on the stalk drying now for 7 days and the bud snap off the stalk so it is time to remove the bud from the stalks and get them into Kilner jars. Here are some images I took as I cut the bud from the stalks. All of the Green House Cheese and Exodus Cheese bud hanging on the stalks. All of the Green House Cheese bud in plastic container. Green House Cheese bud close up next to Clipper lighter. Green House Cheese bud in Kilner jar. All of the Exodus Cheese bud in plastic container. Exodus Cheese bud close up next to Clipper lighter. Exodus Cheese bud in Kilner jar. Here are the weights for both pairs of plants and the total weight of bud. Green House Cheese bud = 60g Trim = 11.6g Exodus Cheese bud = 56.3g Trim = 9.2g Total bud = 116.3g or just over 4 ounces Total trim = 20.8g I well pleased with the bud harvested from the plants I thought that there would be a bit more Exodus Cheese than Green House Cheese but it turned out to be the opposite with the Green House Cheese performing slightly better on weight. I will post a smoke report this evening. Happy growing and harvesting...

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.
