  1. So a year later now... I let my GDP go last winter, and regret it. Stupid me, I thought that I could replace it easy around here. Not so! Real GDP is getting hard to find. Oregon medical strains of old have all dried up after legalization. Rec growers have bought everything up! The one I had was the real deal, green with purple calyxes. I have since picked up another GDP cut from the Midwest in trade (sent to me in a clone shipper) which is thriving under lights this winter. I am hoping it is the real deal. Also in the meantime, I picked up two Grape Ape clones in the summer from a local growe
  2. Mexico just signed into law the national legalization of Medical Marihuana. And just last year High Times predicted this would NEVER happen. Snicker snicker...

    I never smoked any Indonesian weed. Would love to try growing some of it here though. I presume that it is a pure sativa? I smoked gobs of highland Thai that we used to get on skinny bamboo sticks back in the 70s. They were later replaced with fat Thai sticks dipped in hash oil that just put me to sleep in the 1980s. Lacking any older highland Thai seeds here, I grow Durban Poison, said to be a Thai derived strain. Durban is my favorite sativa. The strongest weed I ever smoked to date was south Indian Ganja, a sativa that was almost black. I got ahold of a cut of a Colombian Black
  4. You can harvest now, as it looks like the hairs are starting to turn orange. You can also look at the trichomes with magnification to see if they are clear, cloudy, turning amber or fully amber and fully ripe. I like to harvest WW earlier just when the trichomes are cloudy and before they turn amber. I like a lighter earlier harvest WW high myself. Some wait until they turn 50% amber after 10 weeks of flowering, or even 75% amber. Its a matter of taste I guess? The terpenes mature over time as well, and earlier harvested WW does not have as deep a smell to it. My nephew did not believe that I

  6. As for the OP looking for strains to cross: I think OG is so overblown and so common now I would not bother breeding it. There must be 100 strains and stories that claim to be the 'original' OG. Many are just the same cut. Many are back crossed, selfed, and odd ball crosses. I have grown several of them, like Ghost and Tahoe, and they were pretty much the same. OG does not do much for me. If I was going to work that strain, I would work with ChemDog, one of its parents. But again, Chem x Diesel x OG lines are all so overworked it is INSANE! There are hundreds of each of those ava
  7. You can tell if you have white fly if you shake the plant and there are tiny white flies floating around the plant as a result. Maybe try Canola oil mixed in water for them. Or Safer soap spray. Or just live with them. Neem breaks down in UV light though, so if you are growing outside it should dissipate in a few days of sunlight. You can also just spray the older leaves and avoid spraying the buds.
  8. That does not look bad. Old bottom fan leaves normally dry up and die off as the plant matures in flowering stage. If the top leaves are drying and curling up then it is a sign of broad mites. You do NOT want broad mites. I do not see any signs on them on your plant though. Just pull off the fan leaves as they yellow and fade.
  9. I thought of a twist to the 'best strain you ever smoked'. What is the best hashish that you ever smoked? The best hashish I ever smoked was Hawaii Kona gold hash. Only had it once through a previous roommate that moved to Maui and visited me in NorCal with a few grams. We stayed high for a week on that stuff. That was sensational. Gold hashish. I never saw that before or since. O/w the best hashish for me is/was Lebanese Red. I smoked a LOT of that stuff in the late 70s/early 80s. Many ounces... I bought it by the quarter pound. I liked that so much I am growing 2 red
  10. South India black Ganja (a sativa land race) was and remains the best weed I have ever smoked. That was back in 1975. I got an oz from my GF who was from Hawaii. I do not know where she got it from, as I never saw it anywhere before or since. I sold off some grams to cover my smoking habit, and people were literally knocking on my door wanting to get some 2 months after it was gone. It was legendary. Runner up is probably Durban Poison. A land race from South Africa. A real zippy uppity weed that has no body high at all, and no stone at all. Its a purely cerebral high. I have smok
  11. Well, you are more likely to find Kush indicas in Afghanistan than you are to find it in India. But in India, you are more likely to find Kush in the north. South India tends to have more sativas, like Kerala and Black Ganja. But then again, there are more crosses being grown everywhere now, and pure strains are harder to find. Kush has been bread into just about everything out there now. Are you looking for Kush plants, dried flowers, hashish, seeds, or just Kush in general?
  12. Yes, it looks like Canada will be the first G7 country to legalize recreational marijuana nationally. This is important stuff! Wake up Strain Hunters forum! https://www.yahoo.com/news/canada-legalize-recreational-marijuana-mid-2018-report-145852604.html Hopefully the US will also legalize it nationally, which would allow for interstate transport of Cannabis. Or AT LEAST decriminalize weed, or make Marijuana a class III or less drug offense so that the industry here can use banks to do business AND allow research on the medical use of Cannabis. I know, big pharma, Sess
  13. I am watching Strain Hunter episode reruns and smoking White Widow this afternoon, while making a batch of Blue Dream hash oil from last Spring's indoor grow. While I am doing that, I am also trimming out the Spring indoor WW harvest that will also be made into HO. I am trimming off the sugar leaves of the Spring harvests, after leaving them on when I cured these last year. I will be left with a pile of super tight trimmed buds, and a small jar of Temple Balls that I make with the HO.
  14. I have many seeds from the 70s and 80s, but they have been kept frozen and dry for all these years. The main issue with old seeds is that they may no longer be viable. This is more common in places like the US South, where it is very humid and gets very hot for long periods of time. In places like the US west where it s a lot drier and cooler, seeds can be kept a lot longer w/o being frozen. But they can last indefinitely if they are kept cool or frozen, and most importantly: kept dry. Now this brings up the issue of whether or not Cannabis seeds can be frozen and kept viable or not. Many so c
