  1. I have been busy on the indoor gardening in winter, Thought i would make a small journal here to share. The ggc hasnt shown sex yet but the fact that its so late it should be a female, have killed a few males, the cookies are feminized, #1 streched alot, 2 and 4 are shorter
  2. and this is in the shittiest soil but the best i could get at the time, ill run these same strains in some canna terra next round, and likely get their fert range to go with it, ill compare flairform with canna
  3. been so busy with everything its day 49 already. ill post some more later. trimmed a sample of affy x bigbud. starting to,get a few amber trichomes already, i knew this would be an early maturer because it was ready first outside, lots of small solid nugs and super sticky pine / citrus fragrance, super indica look and growth but the high has a sativa buzz to it, not what id expect looking at it. 2nd one is cookies #4 going to give her 2 more weeks to 9th week. its used up most of the nitrogen from old leaves which mostly died on the plant and i pull them off, wish i had pruned more lower bits off before flowering to put more energy into top growth, and i definitely under fertilized them. 3rd photo is cookies #4 6 days earlier than 2nd photo. (day 43)has fattened up alot. since, trichs are starting to get cloudy, 0 amber yet 4th is the affy x big bud#2 bigger than #1 but not as healthy. i think ill give it 1 more week, 2 flushes in the next week or so and a 48 hour dark period before harvest. and my new Bong
  4. i was talking to GH customer service to check if the single seed centre are legit sellers of GHS. they found them listed under the british seed company and yes they do stock the real Greenhouse seeds. i have read many bad reviews about TSSC (thesingleseedcentre) but have had success with what i have ordered, if seeds are damaged or too prem to be viable they will replace, but not if you try to germinate them and get 0 they wont replace. only un successful ones so far are nirvanas white rhino, maybe old seed, or needed longer than a week to sprout, F that. all the good ones pop in 1-4 days. just hope i get one of them to grow.
  5. i had never seen anything about making hash except hand rubbed from harvesting, a few time ive been given bags of dry trim with small buds in it, after picking out all the stems, seeds leaves with no sugar coating, and smoking most of the buds, i make sure it is nicely dry. Get a sieve or a couple with different size mesh, a glass or pyrex dish, a plate, oven tray , the bigger the better, or line something with aluminum foil, makes it easier to see what you are working with, start grinding the cannabis material though the sieve onto the tray, the hash will stick to the tray and most of the left of fine plant material will just shake off leaving hash on the tray, i blow on it and pick out any green specks, it works so easily as long as the leaf etc is properly dry, but not quick dried because it will lose the stickiness and wont stick to tray as well and wont press into a ball, it will stay powdery. i will go and make some and add the photos soon. after watching some strain hunters docos i seen that they make hash in Morocco very similar to this method. i thought up this idea myself because i seen so much useable stuff going to waste i would get it for free, also making isopropyl extract, but sometimes iso isnt available but a sieve and tin foil always are! i got half a big rubbish bag of shake one year from a friend, it lasted me the whole year with oil and this hash making process. After sieving and mingng the hash, the left over grinded cannabis can still be used to make oil, it will not yield as much with most of the hash removed but if you have alot just rinse each lot you do, i usually do first rinse with the same iso to increase the potency , then rinse with fresh iso to get left overs, finely ground cannabis absorbs alot of liquid so you leave many cannabinoids in the plant material if you do not rinse 2x or more sometimes. gold is good, green if you soak it too long,
  6. I regularly watch the GH grow sessions and was thinking about the difference between ec and ppm, and not having an ec tester, only ppm i went on a hunt to discover how to convert my ppm to ec for my fertilizer strength. found 2 charts, mine works with tds Hanna in the flairform chart, 900 ppm = 1.8 ec (i am using flaiform products), and works out the same with general hydroponics calculations, 900 ppm x 2 divided by 1000 = 1.8 ec. hope this helps somebody
  7. I was told that there was a time when GHS sold regular seeds, why do you not still sell regular? or both regs and fems?
  8. was just having a laugh at the youtube subtitles lol Hello my name is arthur greenish!! who writes them lol
  9. sounds good, im sure it would increase the sales yous already get, not just split the %. although alot of people now grow feminized seed, still many will only grow regular seeds. speaking to people about which strains/breeders they choose it can be a deciding factor who they buy from fem or reg or both will get most customers. if both were available, the stubborn regular buyer might buy some of both. sell certain strains only in regulars or a whole new range of strains to get peoples attention. Arjan still has the white widow parents i believe?
  10. i have ordered from the single seed centre recently and they are all go
  11. ive got my eye on a 300w viparspetra with dimmable veg/bloom remote controller and timer built in, it will be for veg in summer heat, but might go with a 600w one but cant find same model i like. i need extra poles to hang more lights like in my veg tent i need 2 x 23 w grow sabre Leds as they get bigger. need a propogation tent , veg tent , flower tent. i have to veg in small propogation tent 80x50x80 . until flowering ones have finished then keep on veg in there until ready to flower.
  12. day 18 today. the pots are still quite heavy so i leave watering until monday which will be a week since last half strength flairform bloom plus additives. ppm of runoff was 1400-1500. p.h 6.5 10 days ago i fed with myco thrive, as soon as i fed it the plant looked happier and thriving nicely. i think the initial stretching into flowering has finished so i will give 3/4 -full strength bloom dose, superthrive and put a layer of worm castings on top of soil before watering. i also have a trichoderma product as a good protection for them. i am using cheap soil this round but have some canna terra and terrazilla for next time and i kNow they love that compared to pine bark potting mix. its a few hours drive to the city for the good soil so i try to stock up. I am using a 400w digital ballast in a 90x90x160 tent. i know yields are not as good as a 600 so,that is next on my list. i thought ballast i got was adjustable but its dimmable, not 600 or 400 w like my old lumatek. i will get a 100x100x200 tent to go with 600w, the 400 in this tent stays at low temp in this cool weather 23c. im waiting on my fan speed controller to help keep at better temp without extra heating by slowing exhaust fan down. its a 2 speed and low is very high, my induction has temp/speed, both carbon filtered so no dust or smell, also have 600w LED but its a cheapo so thinking of hanging it next to the 400w hps for weeks 4-8. 1000w in under a sq metre should put out high lumens for some dense nugs. humidity is 50-60% between waterings, damp rainy weather here, i have a dehumidifier ready to lower humidity as they get further into flower.
  13. 16 litre litre containers, was going to put into bigger ones but wanted to get them flowering so i can find the best ones to keep the cuttings of and ditch the not so good ones. exactly 2 weeks into flower now. i gave them a feed of half strength flairform bloom and the whole range to try. I gave them too little at the start and got some N deficiencies on first plants that are not as good as these 2. the 3rd photo is cookies #1 its a pain because its so tall i cant get the light any closer to the others, but want to test every plant before i choose which ones to keep going. also kept a clone of the goji golden cobra male and see how well it stays in veg. also started some ultimate purple regs from bc bud depot, and skunk shot from lounge lizard seed, its super skunk x yumboldt. i have a few white rhino, Kalashkinova, bubba kush, caboose and white lemon from GHS now. they will be grown alone one day soon to give them the most attention. im working on expanding to 3 tents now i have 2.
  14. putting them into flower now, had problems with a couple, i had no fert for a while so some older ones got yellow. The goji golden cobra turned out to be a male, it bleeds red sap which i thought was cool and worth keeping for future breeding, i have kept an afghan kush male too. made clones of each plant then ill decide which to keep depending on end results. i heard that greenhouse used to sell regular seeds? is this true if so when did the change to feminized only?
  15. well this is the longest time in years that i have not had a smoke in 3 days, and i dont feel great at all. have pain in my hand from nerve damage where my thumb was half chopped off which makes me light headed and nauseous along withconstant stabbing pain in my ribs that had been broken and i thought were healed. im still hating the police for taking my indoor setup, i never went without. too many people here smoke meth and its so hard to find green even at harvest time because not many people even grow anymore and its so secretive because of the law and heaps of people just sell weed to buy meth. im leaving this stupid country (new Zealand) as soon as possible. it doesn't help that i dont have many friends here but everybody i knew has ripped me off, caused too much drama or are into stuff i wont be involved in so i just keep to myself and live with my mum because she the only family i have along with our Pitbulls. cant wait to have enough money to leave and find a new home in a different part of the world where there is plenty of green and good people. our government here say they will legalize medicinal cannabis but it isnt making any progress.
  16. ill take you word for that jose. maybe different types require different treatments, most people i know that have had cancer have neither been incouraged or discouraged from using it. but if it was a cure surely i would have been successful by now
  17. in the past i have pollinated a feminized variety, with regular male pollen. from one male there was no hermaphrodite traits in the seeds, but using a different male made almost every plant hermie. i have a fem strain now thats affy x bug bud, wide leaf, fast maturity, earthy pine flavors, super sticky. i am thinking of using a male pollen on her, but considering selfing it using colloidal silver too. i already have a male Afghan kush would be perfect to stabilize indica traits more. and would be quicker than making fem pollen on one to pollinate a clone floweres at a later date, but which would work best? fem strain, selfed to create more fem seed? or fem strain pollinated with reg male pollen to produce 50/50? i re vegged this clone
  18. is sts or colloidal silver much different? from what ive read they achieve the same goal.
  19. i believe cannabis is a great preventative for any illness. with the opinion on cancer, i have heard that thc can kill cancer cells, but only at a very high %. its still worth a try, grow a ton of herb and make lots of extract, give it to them high as possible dose as regularly as possible, ingested is best. so make it with ethanol or something safe. cannabis cant make it worse.
  20. what strains are popular in russia? im guessing its mostly indoors with your climate, or warm in summer?
  21. is the greenhouse feeding range organic?
  22. what is your question?
  23. I got some free feminized girl scout cookies with my order from the single seed centre, 4 of 4 are growing well. my favorite one has a webbed leaf, only one leaf but hopefully more grow like that, its only the second set of true leaves now so hopefully this will be a keeper.
  24. didnt make much but still a few good spots. i just make a bit as i feel like it, could make alot but no need. enjoy
  25. i thought of this before i had watched that strainhunters Morocco. i had no internet 12 years ago. i knew somebody else would have thought of it long before me.

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.
