  1. The weather since my last update has been good with plenty of sunshine. In the mornings when I go outside to the shed and switch on the fluorescent tubes at 6.30am it has been cloudy but the cloud soon thins out by 9am and I put the plants outside to enjoy the sunshine. The temperature inside the shed in the mornings is between 14/16C this morning it was about 18C and this afternoon at one point the temperature in direct sunlight was about 34C After watering them on Saturday the dirt in their pots was dry on Monday so I gave each plant 1ltr of water, today the dirt in their pouches was dry again so I gave each plant 1.5ltr of water, looks like their roots have conquered the root pouches now. Both of the plants are certainly growing nicely SVK-B#1 is now 32cm tall and SVK-B#2 is now 42cm tall. Here are some images I took today late afternoon afternoon. Both Sweet Valley Kush plants outside in the yard. Late afternoon temperature not in direct sunlight. SVK-B#1 side view. SVK-B#1 curvey stalk near bottom of plant, the stalk on the other side of the plant is the same. SVK-B#1 foliage close up. SVK-B#1 top view. SVK-B#2 side view. SVK-B#2 foliage close up. SVK-B#2 top view. Tomorrow the 20th of June it will be 2 weeks since I gave them some Enhancer so I will give them some more at the weekend when they are ready for a drink again and the dirt in the root pouches has dried out again, they seem to be enjoying the sunshine and the BioBloom feed. The weather forcast for what is left of the week and next week looks good with plenty of sunshine which will be great if it stays warm and sunny. More updates at the weekend, happy growing...
  2. Time for a mid week update on the 4 Sweet Valley Kush. Last night the dirt in the root pouches was nice and dry so I gave all of the plants 1ltr of water each. They are all growing well although SVK-M#2 is not as vigorous as the other 3 plants, but I am well pleased with their progress. So tonight I measured them all SVK-B#1 = 15cm, SVK-B#2 = 16cm, SVK-M#1 = 17cm, SVK-M#2 = 14cm The maximum temperature in the tent over the ast few days was 32C the minimum temperature was 20C and the maximum humidity was 86% and the minimum humidy was 56% so even when the dirt is dry the humidity has not gone under 50% which is not bad. Here are some images I took this evening. Sweet Valley Kush plants in grow tent under LED. SVK-B#1 side view. SVK-B#1 foliage. SVK-B#2 side view. SVK-B#2 foliage. SVK-M#1 side view. SVK-M#1 foliage. SVK-M#2 side view. SVK-M#2 foliage. Sweet Valley Kush plants in normal light. The plants all seem to be happy with the powder feed, they all look nice and green, the powder feed is definitely easy to use especially the bio feed most of the time your just watering the plants, GHS definitely echieved their goal to provide plant food that is easy to use. More updates to follow soon, happy growing...
  3. Hi @R.G.S yes I forgot I am 2 months early, so tonight at 6.30pm I put them inside the shed so they are on a 12/12 photoperiod. Over the past couple of years I have vegged the plants for 2 months starting in the middle of May then mid July I would control the photoperiod so it matched the photoperiod on the shortest day on August 21st which is usually 14 1/2 hours of day light here in the UK and the point they would normally start to flower on their own. So the plant would be on a 14 1/2 hour photoperiod for a month leading up to the 21st August and at that point my photoperiod and the real one match and usually the plant has already been in flower a month so I know I can finish the plant before the end of the season. Hola, @R.G.S sí, olvidé que tengo 2 meses de anticipación, así que esta noche a las 6.30 pm los puse dentro del cobertizo para que estén en un fotoperíodo 12/12. Durante los últimos dos años, he mantenido las plantas durante 2 meses a partir de mediados de mayo y luego a mediados de julio, controlaría el fotoperíodo, de modo que coincidía con el fotoperíodo el día más corto del 21 de agosto, que suele ser de 14 horas y media. luz aquí en el Reino Unido y el punto en el que normalmente comenzarían a florecer solos. Así que la planta estaría en un fotoperíodo de 14 horas y media durante un mes antes del 21 de agosto y en ese momento mi fotoperíodo y el real coincidirán y, por lo general, la planta ya ha florecido un mes, así que sé que puedo terminar. La planta antes del final de la temporada.
  4. Time for another progress update on the 2 outdoor Sweet Valley Kush plants. Yesterday when I switched on the fluorescent tubes at 6.30am it was well cloudy with light rain showers the temperature in the shed was about 14C At about 10am the light showers stopped and it was just cloudy but it was starting to brighten up. By 12pm the cloud was thinned out a lot and the sun was shining so I moved both of the plants outside into the yard into the sun. The temperature inside the shed at that time was about 20C I moved mr moose outside and checked on him after 15 minutes and the temperature in direct sunlight was about 28C I was able to keep them outside all afternoon and once the sun had gone below the roofs of the houses I moved them both into the shed under the fluorescent tubes until it went dark and I switched off the lights the temperature in the shed was about 18C This morning when I switched on the fluorescent tubes it was well cloudy outside but it was dry the temperature inside the shed was about 16C By about 9am the cloud had thinned out and the sun was shining so I moved the plants outside into the sunshine. At about 10am it started to rain just a light shower so I popped the plants back in the shed and had a brew after about 20 minutes the sun was shining again so I put the plants back outside to enjoy the sunshine where they stayed for the rest of the day. The dirt in both plants root pouches was nice and dry so tonight I have weighed out 42g of BioBloom for each plant sprinkled it onto the dirt and then worked it into the dirt and then I gave each plant 1ltr of water to water the powder feed into the soil. Both plants are sat under the fluorescent tubes until it goes dark about 10pm. I also prepared the shed ready to start to manipulate the plants photoperiod starting tomorrow now they have had the bloom feed, I trapped two pieces of cardboard in the shed window frame to block out the light. So tomorrow will be their first 14 1/2 hour day to start to trick them into flowering. Here are some images I took tonight. Sweet Valley Kush in evening sunlight. Weighing out 42g of GHS BioBloom powder feed. SVK-B#1 with GHS BioBloom powder feed on dirt. SVK-B#2 with GHS BioBloom powder feed on dirt. SVK-B#1 with GHS BioBloom powder feed mixed into dirt. SVK-B#2 with GHS BioBloom powder feed mixed into dirt. Sweet Valley Kush fed and watered with GHS BioBloom powder feed. Shed window and evening sunlight. Shed window with peices of cardboard trapped in the frame to block out light. The weather forcast for this area next week is looking good with plenty of sunshine which is good news after all the crap weather recently. Happy growing...
  5. Time for a progress update on the 4 Sweet Valley Kush plants. The dirt in their root pouches was nice and dry tonight so I gave SVK-B#1 and SVK-B#2 500ml of water and I mixed 0.5g of grow powder feed with a litre of water and then I gave SVK-M#1 and SVK-M#2 500ml of the feed and water, next time their dirt is dry they just get water no feed. Here are some images I took tonight. Sweet Valley Kush in grow tent under LED. Thermometer in grow tent temperature 26C humidity 51% SVK-B#1 foliage. SVK-B#2 foliage. SVK-M#1 foliage. SVK-M#2 foliage. Sweet Valley Kush plants ready to be fed and watered. Weighing out 0.5g of GHS mineral Grow powder feed for SVK-M#1 and SVK-M#2 The plants are growing nicely and seem happy with the powder feed, I am well pleased with their progress so far. More updates to follow soon, happy growing...
  6. Time for a quick update on the 4 Sweet Valley Kush plants. The dirt in the root pouches was nice and dry so I gave each plant 500ml of tap water. Next time the dirt in their pouches is dry I will give SVK-M#1 and SVK-M#2 another feed of the mineral grow feed. Hopefully the dirt in the root pouches will be dry at the weekend. I have been keeping an eye on the plants for any sign of nute burn and they all seem to be doing OK and enjoying the powder feed. I will post some images at the weekend. Happy growing...
  7. The weather has been absolutely crap over the past couple of days since my last update on Monday. So the plants have been in the shed under the fluorescent tubes for the past couple of days. The temeprature in the shed in the mornings has been about 14C and it then rises to about 18/20C during the day and falls to about 18C at night. Last night the dirt in the root pouches was nice and dry so I gave each plant 700ml of water. Both plants seem to be OK although growth seems a bit slow now due to just being sat under the two fluorescent tubes, but the plants are OK. So on Tuesday it was 4 weeks since I gave them both the BioGrow, so this weekend once the dirt in their pouches is dry I will give them some of the BioBloom to last them for 8 weeks. Then I can start to manipulate the photoperiod and trick them into flowering, I just have to place 2 pieces of cardboard over the shed windows to block out the light and everything is in place to get them flowering. I will upload some new images at the weekend. Happy growing...
  8. Hi @ShaggyGrower I noticed in an earlier post you mentioned that you had not worked out how to insert videos from Instagram into a post here on the forum. To embed a video from Instagram just got to the post page containing the video and copy the URL from the browsers address bar then paste into the forum post like below. With a You Tube video just copy and paste the URL of the page containing the video the same way. Dont use the embed code because it is meant to be inserted or pasted into the source code of your post or the web page, the editor does not provide a means to view the source code of the post, you can insert a block of example code using the <> code button but it is rendered as is like <html> source code not a video as above. The editor automagically does the right thing with the URL as though you have inserted the embed code making it a simple task for end users who probably do not know html, in the same way you don't need to know about how an internal combustion engine works to drive a car.

  9. Hi @Ganja XL Your plants look really beautiful the buds look sweet great job man Happy growing and smoking...
  10. Nice one @R.G.S Wheres Wally hahaha
  11. Hi @Antonio86 Fret not bro you can access the web safely and anonymously all you have to do is install the TOR browser which you can get directly from the developers web site https://www.torproject.org/ When you land on the Tor Project homepage click the button marked Download Tor Browser to load the downloads page then choose the appropriate download for the OS (Operating System) on you device and for example Windows or Mac if your running Linux you need to use the package manager to install TOR or if your using a device running Android click on the Android logo and then make a choice appropriate for your device. Then once you have downloaded a copy of TOR run the installer and install the browser on your device. Just to satisfy yourself that the browser is going to anonymize your activity you can check out this service DNS leak test https://www.dnsleaktest.com/ First visit the link in the browser you normally use and click the button to run the extended test this will show you the data exposed when you use the web normally, basically the test is making requests to domains as your browser, for me it exposes my ISP making me very easy to track like everyone using the same ISP Next run the TOR browser and visit DNS leak test and click the button again to run the extended test and you will see all the requests were routed different was your IP and your ISP's identity are not exposed. So using the TOR browser you can come on the forum and you activity on the web will be anonymise by the browser, also the forum runs under https so all the data passed by your regular browser or the TOR browser is encrypted anyway so even if someone did intercept the data packets they would not see the contents because its encrypted. The important part is that your real IP address will not be logged by the server where this forum is hosted and even your ISP (Internet Servic Provider) cannot see anything you do when your running the TOR browser all your activity is anonymised. So for example when you type the address of the forum into the address bar in TOR and hit the enter key the browser sends out a request which goes into the TOR network and the DNS look up is done within the TOR network and routed to the right server which will then respond accordingly. Normally this DNS look up will be done by a DNS server on your IPS network and they will then route the request to the right IP address or the server where the resource is located in this case the Strain Hunters forum and the server will respond by sending back a bunch of packets of data that get rendered in the browser and you see the homepage of the forum or whatever web sites address you entered in the address bar. So you ISP will have logged your request on the DNS server using TOR the DNS look up happens within the TOR network on one of TOR's DNS machines nothing is passed to your ISP DNS servers to look up the IP for the server for the site you wish to visit.
  12. Thats awsome they are well hidden in plain sight, great use of the terrain, brilliant. That beats Harry Potters cloak any day
  13. Hi @g22 thanks Yes those buds fattened up nicely with the Plant Magic organic range of nutrients and additives that organic PK 4-8 really help fatten the bud the plants love it. Yea man the vibe is sweet no difference between photoperiod and autoflower, the Passion #1 I did outside last year were photoperiod girls and compared with the autos I was running inside the bud from both was just a potent, the Cannabinoids in the trichomes/resin are the same whether the plant is an auto or photoperiod they mek the same substances same way there is no difference. As you know the vibe depends on the state of the trichomes when you harvest, this applies to photoperiod and auto plants just the same. I FIMed all of the Sweet Mangos and as you can see mileage varies but it does break the apical tendency and the plant shares the love with all its stalks even when they go off like a rocket and start to flower straight after you FIM, the down side is that the plant ends up smaller, I need to do a run and let them go without manipulating the plants to compare.
  14. Hi @g22 thanks for the kind words No I will leave them in the 16ltr root pouches. Last year I grew 2 Passion #1 and I was using rubble buckets I got from a local builders merchants and drilled drainage holes in the bottom. Inside each rubble bucket is a scale marked in litres and they are supposed to hold 14 litres whenfilled as they are in the image, but they are definitely not 14 litres more like 20 so I am thinking the 16 litre root pouches will be OK because the rubble buckets were not that much bigger. The plants won't grow into trees because I can get them to flower when I want them to flower by putting them in the shed to control their photoperiod so I can make sure they will be able to fit inside the shed over night to keep them safe. Happy growing...
  15. On Saturday the weather was crap it was cloudy with lots of showers. So both the Sweet Valley Kush plants stayed in the shed all day, in the morning when I switched on the fluorescent tubes the temperature was about 14C and it by mid morning it was 20C and when I shut of the lights it was about 18C Yesterday there was not much cloud when I switched on the fuorescent tubes at 6.30am and the temperature was about 14C and by about 8.30am I put mr moose outside and then about 15 minutes later I checked his thermometer and it was about 22C although the thermometer was not in direct sunlight. So I moved both of the Sweet Valley Kush plants outside into the fresh warm bright morning ready for when the sun rose over the house. I checked on them at about 9.30am and the temperature was about 30C in the afternoon the temperature got to about 32C at its hottest in direct sunlight. I kept moving the plants to keep them in direct sunlight, the dirt in thier pouches was nice and dry so I mixed 1g of Bio Enhancer with 1ltr of water and then I gave each plant 500ml of the solution in the early evening and left them outside until it started to go dark around 10pm and then I put them in the shed and tucked them up for the night, the temperature in the shed was about 18C Sweet Valley Kush enjoying the last of the evening sun light. Temperature about 7pm last night. Foliage on SVK-B#1 Top of plant SVK-B#1 Foliage on SVK-B#2 Top of plant SVK-B#2 Sweet Valley Kush top view of plants enjoying last of the evening sunlight. This morning when I switched on the fluorescent tubes the temperature in the shed was about 14C and there was not much cloud and lots of blue sky. At about 8.30am I put mr moose outside with his thermometer and them check on him 30 minutes later and the temperature was about 22C So I moved both of the plants outside into the yard to wait for the sun to rise above the house and half an hour later the plants were in direct sunlight and the temperature was about 28C By late afternoon it got quite cloudy and then we had a shower but it only lasted a few minutes so I left them both outside for another hour and at about 5pm I put them in the shed under the fluorescent tubes the temperature in the shed was about 20C I left them under the lights in the shed until it started to go dark about 10pm and then I switched off the lights for the night. Tomorrow it will be 4 weeks since I fed them with BioGrow so as soon as the dirt in the pouches is nice and dry I will give them the BioBloom and then I can start to control their photoperiod and trick them into flowering. The weather this week is a mixed bag with lots of sunshine and shower forcaste, but there seems to be more sunshine than cloudy showery weather, so as long as the sun shines more than it rains its all good. Happy growing...

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.
