  1. Thank you guys for your responses, I have copied the ideas and advice in my journal especially about the topping. Cannabisspean, you are so correct! The wall actually faces East so it gets a lot of the morning light, then I move them to another wall which faces west, it a dance. I wish I had seen your post earlier. You were absolutely right on the money about the leaves getting scortched. Now, this only happened to the Sour Diesel's, but they definitely got too much sun. I've now made sure they don't get much direct sunlight. Gordon is correct in that when I started them the Sunblaster was too far away and so the stretched to meet the light. Won't happen again. The Sunblaster is called the Portable Cabinet Light, I paid about 36.00CDN. It's comes with some attachments for hooks or to hang from chains. It also has an extra extension plug so you could potentially create an array of these. I'd recommend it as it was easy to put up and did the job even if I didn't get the height correct the first time. Regrds, SkyPilot
  2. Awesome! Thanks, I can see from your pics what you mean. Going to top today! thanks.
  3. Yes, topping. Why am I afraid of that. So, I snip off the very top? Can I do it now or is it too late? Your pics are very bushy that's what I was going for, I think. Thanks for the look!
  4. I realized I didn't ask any questions: I wonder are they too scrawny? Should I be keeping them in the sun for as long as I can during veg? The leaves look good, no yellow or curling, still am I over fertilizing?
  5. i'm going nuts trying to get these photos upright.
  6. Hello, First time grower here. I'm growing outside in 5 gallon containers. I started from feminized seeds and began the planting of germinated seeds approximately April 9th indoors under a Sunblaster grow light fixture. Around May 14th I transplanted the plants into the 5 gallon containers and put them outside. I did not put them in direct sunlight right away and gave them about a week to get acclimated to the sun. I used Pro-Mix Vegetable and Herb soil which claims to have fertilizer for 3 months. I also added some worm castings and some other nutrients from Down to Earth. I really like their Vegan mix and alphalpha meal in addition to the Langbeinite. I used the directions for existing potted plants which called for 5 tablespoons, I used 4 just to be safe. The plants look healthy to me, although the Purple Kush and Azura Haze are not growing too much, I attribute this to lack of sunlight so I have placed the pots where they get more direct sun. I'll add some photos:
  7. ARRG!! Sideways!!!!
  8. Update!!! So here is what they look like now. I've been using the free software GrowBuddy to keep track. So I believe this is week 7 of growing. So far I've found that Sour Diesel grows crazy by itself, next would be White Widow and last would be the Purple Kush and the Azura Haze which is crazy finicky. I hope these pics don't come out sideways, if they do, give me a bit and I'll repost BTW I use 5 gallon containers Soil with worm castings and Down to Earth brand fertilizers.
  9. I've gone ahead and posted my first picture of my spindly ladies! I have big plans for these gals. Right now I'm getting the acclimatized to the sun. I do notice that of all the plants, the Haze variety turns it's "head" in the direction of the sun. The others don't seem to do it as much. Now who's a sun hog? Awww...I'm not sun shaming, she can have as much as she needs.
  10. Welcome, I just joined up. I too hold a medical marijuana here in Canada. It's a federal program called the MMPR (Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations). Cheers! SkyPilot
  11. Hello Everybody, Great to be here, big fan of the Strain Hunters and the philosophy of protecting the indigenous growers around the world. I'm from Toronto and hold my MMPR licence which is Canada's federal medical marijuana program (Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations) This not only allows me to consume cannabis without fear of prosecution, I can also grow it as well. So here I am ready to learn as much as I can and I'll try to post as many pictures as I can. Cheers!! SkyPilot

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.
