  1. +1 more pop after 100+ hours soaking in water. (112) The only beans remaining are all green and these are the beans popping after so many days in the water. I am curious of their actual vitality since they are producing a nice looking pointed tap root but let's see if these remaining 22 green seeds which sprouted a root will pop above the dirt. Curiously one of these beans has sent a root above the soil two days in a row. I read this is a sign of a very strong plant but I am also wondering if 1) low oxygen in soil, too compact, 2) something wrong with the plant for not shooting the root down and sending up it's leaves Either way right now I have what appears as 92 very strong plants and 20 waiting to send their heads above soil. The remaining seeds may pop in some days but they were tossed to the garden. Hopefully I am able to replace my 264 seeds this season with my 92 plants yes. The hybrid vigor of the seedlings is very pleasing to my eye so far. The shape, is very pointed leaf to wide and leafy from dark blue-green to fluorescent lime-green. The stems are all red which comes as a signature from the Mazar-I-Sharif and is viewed in an earlier blurred photo of the previous mom.
  2. How many seeds will my 111 sprouts get me? I am expecting 80% survival rate: (88 plants) The flower is nice but I am excited to focus on my seedstock.
  3. First of all, sweat equity and effort is Manna. Here is some explanation behind my intrepid effort and fuzzy recipe: Mostly I am using simply what I have available to me and would add more. Biochar - a permanent soil improvement. Larger and higher quality yields every season, sourced from sticks on the ground $free many fresh farm eggs - my chickens laid many eggs like crazy and initially I was going to hatch them and then decided not to so I stowed them away to add to the biochar since it contains so many beneficial vitamins, nutrients, and calcium etc $free cow milk - a gallon of milk went bad in the fridge so I found another excuse to add some more calcium to the mix $2 urine - I did not want to go inside to piss so I pissed on my biochar pile about three times - $free chicken manure compost - listed above, the best manure on the planet according to university studies $free humic acid - a result of composted woodchips $free ash - my pyrolysis process is not perfect so I ended up with some ash from char that burnt up $free epsom salt - that extra magnesium is superb, used a very small portion of the bag $0.35 lime - 50lbs pulverized limestone rock, used only a few handfuls $0.10 gypsum - for the sweet sweet buds at the end of the year, great soil conditioner, decreases the sodium in my salty soil $free kelp powder - favorite personal supplement, the benefits are too numerous to list. 21+ amino acids, "complete food" $1 coconut powder - i had half a bag not being used and instead of throwing it out, the omega fatty acids and other great nutrients sounded like an excellent addition to the plant's immune system and bud production $free earth worm castings - a free product from my last listed product $free a bit of last season's composted ocean forest soil - a free product from last season $free Please let this explanation serve as appeasement for the herb Gods which make superior cannabis with 2 $60 bottles of fancy-labeled non-GHSC nutrients
  4. +1 pop today (111) Consider this: a green bean pops 4 days after soaking in water. I must note when the 18 sprouted yesterday this was a resoak which I added several drops of Apple Cider Vinegar the 8 hours preceding their germinating. Was this the cause? It worked for me and again last night with +1. The remaining beans really are green/light white. Still soaking, Who knows at this point I am very satisfied with my sprout count.
  5. Update: all of the seeds which sprouted were sown and all of the seeds which did not sprout and were growing mold were tossed back into water cup. Today +18 sprouted and were sown bringing total to (110). I am wondering if the light white and green seeds are taking more time to wake up.
  6. There is no flush or feeding required for my living super-soil. Water all year. I win
  7. Nice plants my friend. What is your technique for making the bags?? I have looked everywhere to figure out the simple way
  8. "Where's your rock phosphate RedBarn?"
  9. My 2019 super-soil mix: Biochar many fresh farm eggs cow milk urine chicken manure compost humic acid ash epsom salt lime gypsum kelp powder coconut powder earth worm castings a bit of last season's composted ocean forest soil
  10. 29 sprouts with leaves looking excited in the sun. 62 new tails sprouted. Here is my scenario. I had on average 4 capsules of 50 seeds soaking in each container of water. 2 capsules were very dark brown and fully mature seeds. 1 Capsule was light brown, could be better 1 capsule was light white to green After 24 hours of soaking in the paper towel mold took over and killed virtually all non-brown seeds. - A few factors possible - 1. did not disinfect tray or use H2sO4 dilute 2. surrounding air too warm 3. cover over paper towel, though allowing air and not sealed was plastic and not cloth or paper plate which stopped too much air flow 4. seeds were simply too immature and harbored perfect environment for rapid fungal growth 5. excess moisture Almost 100% germination for the dark brown seeds. Almost 0% for the non mature seeds. Growing plants is now 91 awaiting the 62 to move above soil. Will post pics when things look more mature
  11. Very well, happy strain hunting and smoking my friend. I encourage all people to enjoy the many gallons of unused soil strewn about the lands if their health permits such rigorous exploration.
  12. +39 (264 final count, all M x WW)

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.
