  1. g22, thanks a lot! I understand everything clearly. --- Season 2012 / 6 clones Blueberry (Dutch Passion). My photo report can be viewed at this link - http://www.uk420.com/boards/index.php?/topic/317385-blueberry-®-fem-6-clones/ --- Season 2013 / Ed Rosenthal Super Buds (Sensi Seeds). 5 weeks of flowering: 7 weeks of flowering: Post-harvest photography: After the inflorescences from the ERSB plant dried out, their weight was 1500 grams (1.5 kg). --- For this season (2018), I deliberately chose the Neville's haze (GHS). It was very interesting to see how the almost pure sativa in Primorye will behave at 44°N. And what I see now does not disappoint me at all, but rather the opposite. --- I ask you to understand me correctly. I do not have the opportunity to fully grow sativa indoors and outdoors until fully matured. But to get a good smoking product is quite possible (which I wrote in the title message), which is what I’m moving at. I will say even more - I will grow clones from the Neville's haze # 02 plant next season (2019) in the street, using the LST technique ... --- Thank you for understanding!
  2. Yes, g22, 11 years ago I moved from the city (Vladivostok) to the village. I wanted a quiet life closer to nature, without city fuss. I love peace and quiet.
  3. g22, thanks and no need to apologize. You wrote it all right . Let me explain what the essence of the matter is. The climate peculiarity of Primorsky Krai is such that during the rainy season the average daily temperature drops and lasts for about a month. After the rainy season, the leaves on the trees are beginning to turn yellow. And in fact - it becomes really warmer. This is the golden autumn in Primorsky Krai. Here, even the climate is unusual in that during the warm period it is monsoon, and in the cold continental. Temperature difference, colossal: in mid-January to -47 ° C, and in mid-July to + 45 ° C ... This is Russia, everything is unusual here, not just the climatic features in a particular region. ---
  4. October 16, 2018. The first half of October is behind - the last warm period remains. Already, in the daytime, the air warms up in the region of + 10 ... + 15 ° С. Cool nights are in the order of things 0 ... + 5 ° C. Up to 0 ° C, the temperature drops during dawn and lasts for one hour, approximately from 05:30 to 06:30, then begins to warm. Precipitation, in the form of rain (the first snow is possible only from the second half of November, when in the morning hours there will be a stable negative temperature of -2 ... -3 ° C), falls rarely. Humidity in the region of 25 ... 85%. In the morning of October 16, the cranes flew south to wintering. --- Neville's haze plant # 02 Old: 178th day; Flowering: 58th day; Smell: medium. Not paying attention to the decrease in average daily air temperature, plant # 02 continues to bloom - “through thorns to the stars”. --- Neville's haze plant # 03 Old: 178th day; Flowering: 49th day; Smell: strong (Pepper, Blackberry and Wood). Recently, closely watching the plant # 03, I noticed that the inflorescences do not grow, but they ripen. In the berry smell of inflorescences a distinct woody background appeared - reminiscent of resinous pine wood. --- Plants and microorganisms in the soil, receive food, as well as described in the previous photo report. Nothing has changed in this regard. --- The next update is October 23, 2018.
  5. OG.Naj, thanks ! I myself try to do at home fertilizer for plants . Only as a last resort I buy something in the store . I have been doing this for 6 years now and for now I am satisfied with everything . How things will be in the future - time will tell .
  6. Good day, fans of pure sativa, well, almost pure sativa. October 9, 2018. Immediately about the main thing. From the 4th of October, the active formation of trichomes began. Interestingly, the plants have different phenotypes and started flowering with a difference of a week, but here is the start of the formation of trichome, both plants, occurred at the same time. It's time to give the plants something serious in terms of nutrition. Why not use fermented chicken shit. We had to wait for quite a while until the fresh shit was completely fermented and the nitrogen content would drop to the minimum possible. Unlike fresh - ripe chicken shit has a very faint odor, which is good news. Chicken shit is disinfected by means of "phytosporin-m". A mixture of water-based, which is used from the 4th of October: 6 liters of pure water + 200 milliliters of fermented chicken shit. Mixture consumption on 1 plant - 6 liters. Watering - 2 times a week. Also, I will continue to water the plants with an aqueous solution of fermented melon: 6 liters of pure water + 400 milliliters of fermented melon. Consumption - 6 liters per 1 plant. Watering chicken droppings and melons will occur on different days. By the way, in our Primorsky Krai, where I live, there are bats. Theoretically, you can find a place where they sleep and collect guano, which would be very good. But to find such a place does not work. --- Neville's haze plant # 02 Old: 171st day; Flowering: 51st day; Height: 174 cm (the plant has stopped growing); Smell: medium (very difficult to describe). --- Neville's haze plant # 03 Old: 171st day; Flowering: 42nd day; Height: 174 cm (the plant has stopped growing); Smell: strong (spicy blackberry). --- The weather this year behaves naturally (at the given moment of time naturally) and does not present unexpected surprises. So do not worry about the plants Neville's haze - everything is fine! --- The next update is October 16, 2018.
  7. October 2, 2018. Since it is not known whether the weather will allow to “come in” in November, then we can consider October as the last segment before the finish. The beginning of October is a great time to finally be convinced of the potential of plants, their phenotypes, at the 44th latitude. Plant # 02 showed signs of flowering before the others and everything is clear with it - it is fit. Plant # 03 was pleasantly surprised - although the signs of flowering were found later than those of plant # 02, but the “start of flowering” itself was faster. And besides, it is worth noting that the plant # 03 exudes a wonderful smell of freshly picked blackberries. It seems that the smell in plant # 03 is final, because in the last three weeks of flowering, the smell has not changed, but has only become stronger. As expected, plant # 01, with its very strange, slowly flowering, indica-dominant phenotype, is completely incapable of adequate flowering at a given latitude (44°N). I see no one reason to continue growing the plant # 01 with the useless phenotype (for open ground at the 44th latitude). October 2, will be the last photos of the plant # 01, as it will be dug out as useless. This has already been decided. Leaves will not be wasted. Cooked greens "ganja tea". Well, the plants # 02 and # 03 will stand to the bitter end. Just in case (anything can happen), cut a few more branches from the plants # 02 and # 03 on the clones. The place is only for four plants, but most likely I will leave one clone (I will choose the best ones) from plants # 02 and # 03, and only then I will clone them. 2 plants will be able to stay in the box for a long period, under an esl lamp and with air ventilation, without constraining each other. --- Neville's haze plant # 01 Age: 164th day; Blossom: 35th day; Height: 118 cm; The gain for the last week is: +2 cm. Plant # 01 exudes a very faint aroma of pink grapefruit with bitterness. --- Neville's haze plant # 02 Age: 164th day; Blossom: 44th day; Height: 170 cm; The gain for the last week is: +3 cm. --- Neville's haze plant # 03 Age: 164th day; Blossom: 35th day; Height: 170 cm; The gain for the last week is: +8 cm. --- Daytime temperature + 19 ... + 23 °C, at night + 6 ... + 8 °C. --- The next update is October 9, 2018. --- P.S. Having dug out the plant # 01, I was surprised by such a small root, and when pruning the side branches I noticed that they are soft - they are very easy to cut. Opened the central stem of the plant to look at the state inside. It seems that the plant was sick and it happened, according to my observations, it was after the rainy season - at first the plant stopped growing completely, but after that, it even began to grow very slowly 1 cm in a week. It became noticeable that the plant behaves strangely. The reason for the lag in growth and flowering from the rest of the plants is the disease that was provoked (during the rainy season) by the overmoistening of the soil. I did the right thing when I dug up a plant # 01.
  8. September 25, 2018. --- Neville's haze plant # 01 Age: the 157th day; Flowering: 28th day; Height: 116 cm; The increase over the past week is: +1 cm. --- Neville's haze plant # 02 Age: the 157th day; Flowering: the 37th day; Height: 167 cm; The increase over the past week is: +2 cm, ~ 0.3 cm per day. The side branches of plant # 02 well extended upwards. I like the structure of the lateral branches of this phenotype. Unlike the others, it is this phenotype that shows the potential for a good harvest. --- Neville's haze plant # 03 Age: the 157th day; Flowering: 28th day; Height: 162 cm; The increase over the past week is: +4 cm, ~ 0.57 cm per day. From the plant comes a strong flavor, something reminiscent of - ripe blackberries. --- Now about fertilizer. Last week, "fed" plants a couple of times: nitric acid 0.3 ml / 1 liter of water, oak ash 1-2 tablespoons / 1 liter of water. I will not give any more ash. Now, as a food, for plants, only nitrogen humate will be used - 0.3 ml / 1 liter of water. Watering will be 4 times a week. Little by little and more often - is not the most important principle of sativa fertilization during the flowering period. To increase microbial activity in the soil, a product of natural fermentation (without yeast and anything else) made solely from melon fruits will be used, which in turn has grown without the use of any fertilizers. I already used melon in 2013 when growing Ed Rosenthal Super Buds, and then I noticed that "fluff" appears on the soil within 24 hours after the application. --- Next update is October 2, 2018.
  9. 18 September 2018. There was a golden autumn (Indian summer). Daytime air temperature in the area t + 20 ° C, at night is cooler than t + 7 ... + 10 ° C. Early in the morning, often all clouded by fog - it is visible as droplets of water soar in the air. Humidity is different and can fluctuate around 30% ... 100%. --- By the way, I already had one very late season, in 2015. Being engaged, at that perfect time, by one selection project, tested seeds of a sort Blueberry, late F6 generation (genetics Dutch Passion). Crossing, before the F5 generation was conducted, "according to one common characteristic" - the original Blueberry phenotype from DP, and the phenotype was really good in its time. To obtain seeds of the F6 generation, plants of sativa-dominant phenotype with the main common features were chosen ... Closer to the point. So, among the plants of the Blueberry F6 generation, one interesting specimen was discovered: a sativa-dominant phenotype, with a distinctive feature - late flowering. The plant has fully matured in 10 weeks - closer to the middle of November. The photo was taken before harvest (November 13, 2015). Everything depends entirely on the weather, if it allows, Neville's haze plants will be able to stand just like the Blueberry F6 in 2015 - which would be just fine. --- Neville's haze plant # 01 Age: the 150th day; Flowering: 14th day; Height: 115 cm; Over the past week, plant # 01 has grown by 1 centimeter. "Indica-dominant phenotype with slow flowering". You can say - the perfect phenotype of Neville's haze from GHS for the room. The plant will not grow very much, except in width, but at the beginning of flowering, in general, beauty - there is no growth in the stalk, like plants with sativa-dominant phenotypes. Although of course, with all this, there is one significant minus - a slow flowering. --- Neville's haze plant # 02 Age: the 150th day; Flowering: 28th day; Height: 165 cm; The increase over the past week is: +5.5 cm, ~ 0.8 cm per day - the plant slows growth. The phenotype of plant # 02, especially now, during flowering, is very similar to the classic Mexican marijuana phenotype, "one of the parents" of Neville's haze. If it is true, the genetics of the Mexican variety is dominant in plant # 02, it is not at all surprising that the signs of the beginning of flowering were discovered so early - on August 19. --- Neville's haze plant # 03 Age: 150 days; Flowering: 14th day; Height: 158 cm; The increase over the past week is: +10.5 cm, 1.5 cm per day. --- The lower branches of plant # 01 were "stretched" so that they did not overlap the light. In contrast to the same "training" with plants # 02 and # 03, with plant # 01 it was necessary to tinker - it was too thickened with second-order branches, which were naturally circumcised. Not all, there are only those who have a place under the sun. --- It is probably unusual to see such a slow flowering in marijuana, especially those who constantly grow the indica-dominant or generally auto-flowering varieties. But what is, that is - this is how all three phenotypes of Neville's haze blossom from GHS on the 44th latitude in the Primorsky Krai. As you probably already understood, waiting for miracles from plants # 01 and # 03 is not worth it. Theoretically, if you grow such a phenotype as in plant # 03 on the street through clones, then the blossoming for 2-3 weeks, it is possible and will allow the plant to mature normally, naturally for the 44th latitude. The phenotype of plant # 01 has a very slow flowering (for 44th latitude), although it is indicative dominant. So if you grow such a phenotype on the 44th latitude, then at least for this you need a heated greenhouse. --- Superphosphate is over. Now the composition and concentration are (per 1 liter of pure water): sodium humate - 0.3 ml, oak ash - 1 tablespoon. --- Next update is on September 25, 2018.
  10. September 11, 2018. The rainy season came to an end and finally good weather settled. As before, Neville's haze plants from GHS make me happy with the slow onset of flowering. But, at last there was a specifics. It became clear which phenotype, and how, the flowering begins. The main goal of the 2018 season is to look at all varieties (phenotypes) of the Neville's haze variety. To look at their behavior in the conditions of the street on the 44th latitude, then to clone the plant with the desired phenotype for the next season (2019), already specifically for the crop. The case is made - twigs of the second order (clones) were sliced on September 10, from plants # 02 and # 03. Why was it decided to clone only plants # 02 and # 03? If everything is clear with plant # 02 (signs of flowering were discovered on August 19), plant # 03 was cloned because the plant showed signs of flowering, although the blossoming starts faster, according to my observations. Plant # 01, I did not clone because of the slowest start of flowering and the poor structure of the lateral branches. --- I will say right away that I was very fortunate. Since of the 3 seeds, the Neville's haze variety, three plants with different phenotypes have grown. That is, if you believe the Internet resource en.seedfinder.eu, then I was lucky to see all the 3-type phenotype of Neville's haze from GHS together, namely (information with the above resource): Phenotype No. 1: long, stretched, fast blooming, sativa-dominant; Phenotype No. 2: long, stretched, slow blooming, sativa-dominant; Phenotype No. 3: long, compact, slow blooming, indica-dominant. --- Neville's haze plant # 01 Age: 143 days; Flowering: 14th day; Height: 114 cm; Plant # 01 stopped growing from the beginning of flowering. And besides, the plant has the slowest start of flowering. --- Neville's haze plant # 02 Age: 143 days; Flowering: 21th days; Height: 159.5 cm; The increase over the past week is: +9.5 cm, ~ 1.35 cm per day. --- Neville's haze plant # 03 Age: 143 days; Flowering: 14th day; Height: 147,5 cm; The increase over the past week is: +8.5 cm, ~ 1.2 cm per day. --- The lower branches of plants # 02 and # 03 were "stretched" so that they did not overlap the light. By the way, it was noticed that wild bees quite often fly around plants # 02 and # 03 - apparently they are attracted by a sweetish aroma emanating from plants during flowering. Concentration of fertilizers has not changed and so far remains the same. --- Next update is on September 18, 2018.
  11. 4 September 2018. --- Neville's haze plant # 01 Age: 136 days; Flowering: 7 days; Height: 114 cm; The increase over the past week is: +2 cm, ~ 0.3 cm per day. With the beginning of flowering, plant # 01 almost ceased to grow - it's interesting! --- Neville's haze plant # 02 Age: 136 days; Flowering: 16 days; Height: 149 cm; The increase over the past week is: +9 cm, ~ 1.30 cm per day. At the second week of flowering, the side branches of plant # 02, began to stretch and fall down - the phenotype, is becoming more like the original (meaning the main phenotype of Neville's haze from GHS). In fact, the whole plant is stretched, but the side branches do it a little faster - it looks chic. Reminds a noble lady in a gorgeous dress, at some pompous event. Neville's haze is slowly gaining momentum. After 2 weeks of flowering, on the tops of the side branches of plant # 02, the flower cups are already clearly visible. --- Neville's haze plant # 03 Age: 136 days; Flowering: 7 days; Height: 137 cm; The increase over the past week is: +8 cm, ~ 1,1 cm per day. --- Plants continue to actively build branches. To the main branches of the first order - there are no questions, but here the growth of the second-order branches grows chaotically - down and to the sides. So, such branches of plants growing inward, will be removed - there will be no sense from them, but energy is still taken away from plants. About circumcisions and the like. Regarding any manipulation with the plant - I rely on the wisdom of the Oaxaca Indians (Mexican state): ”The philosophy of these farmers is that a normal, healthy plant which has not grown the best product for human use. To develop a potent product, the plant must be tortured by environmental extremes, unusual pruning methods and the technique of crucifixion which will be explained presently.” (link to the original text - https://www.icmag.com/ic/showpost.php?p=1812833&postcount=1209) --- I fertilize all the same and everything also. --- The next update is on September 11, 2018
  12. August 28, 2018. The rainy season in Primorsky Krai is coming to an end. Although, the beginning of September will be rainy - as usual. 3x Neville's haze fem (GHS) --- Neville's haze plant # 01 Age: 129 days; From the appearance of stigmas: 77 days; Flowering: 1 day; Height: 112 cm; The increase over the past week is: +7 cm, ~ 1 cm per day. Neville's haze plant # 02 Age: 129 days; Flowering: 9 days; Height: 140 cm; The increase over the past week is: +11 cm, ~ 1.5 cm per day. Neville's haze plant # 03 Age: 129 days; From the appearance of stigmas: 77 days; Flowering: 1 day; Height: 129 cm; The increase over the past week is: +10 cm, ~ 1.4 cm per day. --- The dosage of fertilizers has been changed: 1) Nitrogen humate - 2 ml / per liter of water; 2) Superphosphate (aqueous solution) - 25 ml / per liter of water. --- Off-topic. A young Amur skid, today (August 28), was visiting the plants. Next update is on September 4, 2018.
  13. August 21, 2018. It's raining season. --- Neville's haze plant # 01 Age: 122 days; From the appearance of stigmas: 70 days; Height: 105 cm; The increase over the past week is: +7 cm, ~ 1 cm per day. --- Plant # 01 - markedly distinguished. At once, the structure of branches attracts attention - they grow not just horizontally, but at a negative angle, slightly lifting the tops toward the sun. On branches of the first order - twigs of the second order grow well. All this looks - very unusual. Noticeably the difference between the leaves - the "fingers" are narrower than those of the leaves of the other two plants. As for any odor in the plant, it appeared this week and is very weak - it is felt only close. What exactly smells, it is still difficult to describe. --- Neville's haze plant # 02 Age: 122 days; Flowering: 2 days (at the beginning of flowering [August 19] - 68 days from the appearance of stigma); Height: 126 cm; The increase over the past week is: +12 cm, ~ 1.7 cm per day. --- Neville's haze plant # 03 Age: 122 days; From the appearance of stigmas: 70 days; Height: 119 cm; The increase over the past week is: +10 cm, ~ 1.4 cm per day. --- The fourth week has passed since the plants # 02 and # 03 began to exude around themselves - the aroma from different fruit blends. --- In general, looking at plants # 02 and # 03 from a distance, it seems - clones, but this is not entirely true. There is a certain similarity only the structure of branching, and the color and shape of the leaves are different. --- Plants received food 2 times over the past week. The composition of the aqueous solution is the same (humate of nitrogen 4 ml + superphosphate 12 ml per 1 liter of water). --- Next update is on August 28, 2018.
  14. Hello, ShaggyGrower! Yes, 3 seeds were viable, but I was still happy, as at that time, and now. As seeds are stored at the dealer in a warehouse in Russia, I have no idea. But I store the seeds in the fridge.
  15. Hello, g22! Here is a very good description of the climate of Primorsky Krai in Russia: “The climate is temperate monsoon. Winter is dry and cold, with clear weather, there are often thaws on the coast. Spring is long, with frequent temperature fluctuations. Summer is warm and humid, in the summer months there is a maximum amount of precipitation, in some areas up to 90% of the annual amount. There are typhoon outlets, which sometimes inflict enormous damage on infrastructure and agriculture. Autumn is warm, sunny and dry. In summer the south-east winds from the Pacific Ocean prevail, and in the winter north-west, bringing cold, but clear weather from the continental regions.” – Wikipedia (ru).
