  1. Wow, excellent. The Big Bang went mad. The Church has nice wild landrace qualities - very sturdy vigor. Blessings for safe harvest
  2. Very important tip I must record: When using composted manure for compost tea, mix with a 1:6 ratio of compost material:water. Kicking myself for not having done this all along. The plants instantly respond unlike any way before. Glowing.
  3. Wow, awesome looking plants, amazing environment, perfect water, Jah keeping watching over you indeed. Exciting, best of luck my friend
  4. Mazar-I-Sharif x White Widow The dominant pheno is Sweet Mint with a strong Corn Flower starting at the back of the nostril and then swiftly covering the palate and bringing with it a hominee, then hoppy, and finally peppercorn. The other pheno is dominant with race gas, then a sweet fruit of cherry and berry mandarin orange with a bit of mint on the finish. Some leaves showing metallic green. Do you like this cross so far? All of the traits of it's lineage are evident. A real joy for me. I need to remove the cages so you will notice some bunching which is causing the leaves in that area to get hot and dry out from touching the metal. The photos are taken with a Canon 60D in Manual mode in the RAW format (30mb+ per photo (thanks GHS)) with color mode set to Faithful at 3900 Kelvin. Photo edits performed in Darktable with only the exposure adjusted in order to brighten the image since I always capture images darker than normal (either narrow aperture or 1/3000, low ISO, etc) to avoid any white-outs. The shortest plant is full sun 16+ hours, much bushier from it's elevated light and heat levels. In choosing my preferred spots with ideal starting-soil I look for two things: an abundance of thick grass and wild herbs. Some better elements are terrain and inaccessibility. The garden with pure sand has the tallest and healthiest plants requiring the least amount of water. Perhaps this sand is an outcropping with an underwater aquifer keeping the soil moist (at time of planting I was moving the sand and it was all moist with rushes of air seemingly coming out of pockets two feet down.). In testing many soils in many areas I am able to know in the future which micro-climate of my choosing is better and best for the herb. There are some chunks of the leaves eaten (the same bite shape from different area. Most likely cicada or small bird) but as you see the plants are mostly looking perfect as the immune system of the plant is very strong from the compost tea applications and most likely, as a result, contain very high Brix levels which means whatever bug or animal eats the plant they quickly become discouraged to repeat, and, also, this exposed wound of the plant quickly alerts predator bugs to a potential meal nearby so even within our micro-climate we must be inspired to create what is called a crypto-climate which is a micro-climate within a micro-climate from preparing the soil with great energy and enthusiasm to achieve excellent results. Also companion plants become more important as the planting season ripens so plant early and do not worry or plant late and surround your plants with basil, mint, thyme or similar. The jug in the photo is 18.927 liters or 5 gallons for size comparison. I can not stress enough the significance of Biochar in the soil and well amended compost tea, not only for watering and feeding, but also the very important and lesser discussed element of water retention, nutrient bioaccumulation, and a stable and increasing biomass of good bacteria in the soil. Pure water will wash away nutrients making your plant miss it's genetic potential and will not help to bioaccumulate nutrients which will result in the soil drying out faster or becoming less potent for our goal of more than excellent plants. The biochar captures the nutrients from the compost tea, and so does the soil, for much longer than ordinary soil (endless benefits to biochar) and this means I am watering with 1 gallon per plant every 10 days and they are exploding in growth (in 38'C days). Of course there is an element of perfect storm involved in choosing good soil but happy results will contain formidable truths which we should feel encouraged to share in order to spread the happiness. Some last things - walking forever and ever to the garden creates new difficulties. Choose a spot that takes you 7 minutes to water from point of insertion to extraction. Use the landscape to tell you how to paint your plants into it's natural looking image. Prepare the soil in the day-time so you are able to track the sun more accurately and this allows you to place plants very close to others without receiving any or very little shade at all since we know more sun is good and like coffee some partial shade is a good thing too as well as a natural barrier from strong weather or even close encounters from large pests.
  5. Someone tell that guy that told me honey does not work that I started my Mazar-I-Sharif x White Widow by seed and it is the 13th of June and the plants are over 2m tall and have not started flowering yet.
  6. After thinking more on drying, I am most likely going the route of what we see in the Strain Hunters Morocco documentary of bundling the sticks of buds and leaning against a wall to dry. Every compost tea batch I make is different with certain basics. For example one time it is raw brown cane sugar. This last time it was raw coconut sugar. The last recipe was this, and the plants responded very well: Also, everything is in extreme moderation, very dilute, probably should be higher but less is more in my book. Next batch I am adding some bentonite clay. Pink Himalayan Salt Volcanic Rock Dust Pulverized Limestone/Slaked Lime Vermicompost Raw Coconut Sugar Raw Honey Maca Root Powder Coconut Flour Iodine, the edible kind, pure/colloidal/nascent/monoatomic iodine Kelp powder Lemon peel Lime peel Gypsum Powder Coffee Grounds Wild Sage plant Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar Green Tea Vitamineral Green powder, with the following ingredients: Nettle Leaf ◊∞ Carob Pod ◊∞ Alfalfa Leaf ◊∞ Horsetail Leaf ∞ Ginger Root ◊∞ Barley Grass ◊∞ Parsley Leaf ◊∞ Wheat Grass ◊∞ Basil Leaf ◊∞ Barley Grass Juice ◊∞ Oat Grass Juice ◊∞ Chickweed Leaf ∞ Dandelion Leaf ◊∞ Holy Basil Leaf ◊∞ Moringa Leaf ◊∞ Yacon Leaf ∞ Amla Berry ◊∞ Shilajit °∞ Spirulina ∞ Chlorella Kelp ◊°∞ Dulse ◊°∞ Bladderwrack ◊°∞ Alaria °∞ Laver (Wild Atlantic Nori) °∞ Protease ∞ Alpha-Galactosidase ∞ Amylase ∞ Cellulase ∞ Lipase ∞ Bromelain ∞ Papain ∞
  7. Now soaking in the sunshine, another strain:Kerala landrace (AKA Kerala, Kerala Gold, Idukki Gold), first collected by The Real Seed Company.and sourced directly from Kerala District India and then reproduced through open pollination. Also one plant on the left is not looking good from poor drainage and will improve in the nature. Companion plants shown below are oregano, thyme, mint, lavender, bay leaf, and a volunteer corn. Do you like the Sativa leaves? How high do you think the high will go?
  8. We all know Malaria is a more than serious issue in Africa. Right now Malaria is even spreading in Venezuela and of course we all know how awful things can go if Malaria spreads over the Americas, Africa, Europe, Asia, and Oceania - world-wide plague. How do we handle this issue as sentient beings? A few options: tinctures of different plant barks for preventatives or cures, colloidal silver to kill the disease in the body - none of this can be produced quick enough nor will it attack the origin, so what are we left to do? Is there an insect that eats mosquitoes? Certainly, the dragon fly, but does the dragon fly itself harbor Malaria and aid in the spread no matter what? We hybridize plants all day - can we hybridize dragon flies that will outcompete other dragon flies in the Congo for example and rid Africa of Malaria? Maybe cross a dragon fly from Brazil with one in south India for example. Maybe the answer is in a hybrid bat or a hybrid fish which eats the eggs of mosquitoes or maybe even a hybridized nematode which loves stagnant water and attacking the DNA of the Malaria in the first place. I know the world is full of "no-not-possible" people so this thread is really not for you, show me some research, what can you come up with GHS team
  9. The plant on the far right has a superb structure
  10. hallow hallow hallow mr. argue on the internet has arrived in due time to assail his illusory enemies @jankahar you're not exactly skilled at interpreting Scientific Articles or simple ethics therefore I can't be the one to entertain your childish antics Honey and molasses together sterilize the grow? Right; when the rains slow down I'll go out and show you my trees. In the mean time I'm putting an ignore on you since you're well, not a friend of any friends
  11. Yeah man no plant more beautiful than the ganja aye, I love that excitement of the season and then at harvest I gotta wait another 6 months for that excitement again. Happy growing to you as well good friend
  12. Thank you @jsm I am really wanting them to amaze me. The medium they are now is, on a waterway in the mud, natural hydroponics. My other spots the plants are about 0.75 meter tall, looking very happy and very healthy and robust, not growing too much up or out yet, but looking extremely sturdy, perhaps sending tap root down to prepare for expansion. And of course preparing for the heat coming in. One spot I went to compost tea for pests and feed and the bugs ate many leaves at the lower of 2 plants but touched nothing upper and left the rest of the plants alone and again they all look like they must be working on getting robust root system to begin real expansion, they are sticking up straight as an arrow and lush lush lush lush vibrant green
  13. Wow, excellent farming. I really like the structure of the Sour Banana Sherbert, sure to produce huge colas, and the vigor of the Dutch Hawaiian, irie strain I am certain

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.
