  1. Hello I am both new to cannabis and growing. I read about the benefits of cannabis. We soaked the seeds in water for 24 hours, and then into damp paper towel, then the seedlings went strain into the main pots. I got an idea from a member in autoflower forum, about putting a scope of seed raising mix in the center of the growth medium. This is the growth medium i am using in the link below. It is 12month slow release fertilizers in it. Potting mix link with description These are the girls at 52 days old, i am hoping they will be ready soon as i am eager to do the next grow. I have listed the plants of grow 2 in my introduction thread. Cart i use with plants enjoying some sun The netting acts as a bit of wind break, but generally the plants seem to be fine with the breezes The orange pots, the plants are more stunted but they are so frosty, the others are catching up and getting more frosty more on the strains Northern Lights Blue - all of them except a Sour Daddy auto/reg, not much about it or where its from, but the Norhtern Lights are SAG seeds
  2. Bob Marley - Kaya
  3. Northern Lights Blueberry - nice smoke, my own from grow 1, gets better as it ages
  4. First to show leaves are the Greenhouse girls Exodus Cheese and Super Lemon Haze. I got help from another forum, about using dvd cases to fix the curling of the roots. Currently the girls are undercover from the rain but have been misted and watered , since i had them in full sun this morning Super Lemon Haze (auto fem) Exodus Cheese - first to sprout Charlotte's Angel CBD I will not put the other 2 - dont look that great as root didnt straigten so planted then with leaves just above soil example pineapple express
  5. Grow 2 - April May June harvest ( Australian mid autumn/ early winter) Days should be 23 -25 range. Evenings 14c , and cooling off. At night the girls will go underneath on their "grasshound buses ( just old free bbqs without the bbq), this time i added some screen to help with the winds and other things. I am excited this time , and a bit nervous as usual with germination. This time a great range of strains 1. Greenhouse Seeds - Super lemon Haze (auto ) 2. Greenhouse Seeds - Exodus Cheese (auto ) 3. Fast Buds - Girl Scout Cookies (auto ) 4. Barney Farms - Pineapple Express (auto) 5. Dutch Passions - Charlottes's Angel (auto) Soil Searles advanced potting mix, same as last time but plant to maybe try a different soil next time. I am not sure but i am concerned if too much fertilizer in it, but it is controlled release. The link is the soil information Searles Potting mix advanced from the website in short 50% more fertiliser* – Contains 12 months fertiliser which delivers essential plant nutrients for sustained healthy plant growth 50% more wetting agent* – Delivers better absorption, retention and distribution of moisture throughout the mix so the entire root system benefits from watering and feeding for up to 12 months Rapid plant response with Searles Flourish® soluble plant food Excellent water and nutrient retention and release from water crystals Boosted with Potash – For better blooms, fruit and disease resistance Advanced formulation potting media – For outstanding indoor and outdoor results Performance maximising ingredients – Zeolite, Rock Minerals, Activated Carbon and Biostimulants Perlite for better drainage. Pots all have extra holes drilled at the bottom also. I am thinking since cooler time of year more perlite, as during summer the girls would take up more water i would expect in the heat. Seed Raising mix to put in center of final pots ( 2 hand scoop in centre of mix) Containers 14L for the black, 20L for the tera coloured ones, and white paint bucket For autos is 14L good? Transportation to moved girls underneath at night Germination - April 8th - Monday Get the seeds from the fridge, sit out a little at room temperature and put in separate glasses (labelled) then paper in opened plastic bags in a dark spot to sprout. Once they sprout directly into the main pot with a little seed raising mix in the center.
  6. Hello JSM, Yes i used to worry with my girls in the breeze , but i was told its good for trunk development. Sounds like you have some nice days, if its nice enough to be outside the girls would like to be outside also. May would be your last month of spring, Our summers are very warm to hot and humid. The weather service is Australia is talking about a warm autumn and winter again this year, and also drier than normal. April has not started dry. Raining now but the seedlings had some sun this morning. That is a good idea a CFL lamp. If the day is cloudy you can use your light. They sound lovely strains. Royal Queen Seeds does have good information on there website about soil etc. Your frienids have some Cali Strains, i think Girls Scout Cookies is one of their strains. That will be something to look forward to and relax
  7. Greetings friend, yes before of the Australia law. When and If they change it I would love to grow some photoperiods. They autos took the heat of summer well and the tallest Northern Lights blueberry was only 67cm. I dont think they get to too tall. You growing an auto when it was new to the market, also maybe now the breeders have perfected the autos more. I didnt get a huge yiield. I think indoor yield of autos might be more than I got. Each plant 25gram of dry flower, the SourDaddy was only 17 of dry flower.
  8. Hi Tweakdragon, welcome to Strain Hunters forum.
  9. RGS, nice way to store the pots on hangers
  10. Hello JSM, Is the weather finer this time of year in the Netherlands? It usually is more sunny in April but is cloudy and showery, hope it clears up. The girls are looking good, so your lamp is a CFL
  11. hey

    Hello Math, Welcome to Strain Hunters forum.
  12. Thank you JSM. latest update - bit worried about Exodus Cheese and Super Lemon Haze, others have not grown much a tap root (2mm or so), EC and SLH are about 1cm and growing as in the diagram i drew. SLH and EC Update: This week the weather is not best to start is cloudy at times, and possible showers. Around 16 hours in water, Exodus Cheese had cracked her shell, and other seedlings dropped when tapped. Now they are in Paper towels, under my speakers, its allows air flow and is dark when closed - around 21c now around 23 bit late to make up soil now, do it in the morning, i have for the centre of main pot , small 7.5cm x 10cm pots, i will add potting mix and remove small pot then place seedlings in the centre Soil supplies
  13. Thanks mate ! I am onto my next, first week cloudy a bit
  14. hello great way to water your plants. I will have to look up those strains. I have 2 Greenhouse this current grow. True the weather is pretty unpredictable, First week for me cloudy at times, so not the best
  15. hola amigo The plants look nice and busy for young seedlings. Good luck
  16. the plants are looking bueno RGS and healhty. Best luck
  17. Hi Redbarn, the seedlings are looking great, yes i had pests on my plants tiny little black thrips. I also like green tea, and thats a good idea with the water, i use tap water, and times rain if i catch it in a bucket. You have so many plants mate to watch 60 ! I think next time, i try better soils. I like the idea of benefitical plants, as this saves using pesticides. I use the paper towel method for germination.
  18. Thanks my friend , i was about to ask about Super Lemon Haze and nutrients. That is great, i got 25g for each Northern Lights plants dry. I will try make sure to flush about 1 week or maybe 10 days before harvest. Since I have an Auto Super Lemon Haze, she and the other girls will go directly into main pot with a tiny bit of seed mix for the seedling to adjust, the soil has fertilizers but controlled release 12month. Thank you JSM for the good luck, deeper is better for bigger trunks, also have them outside and maybe the light breeze also helps. Good luck with your girls
  19. Hello Edinburgh ! Welcome to the Strain Hunters Forum. Look forward to seeing your grow
  20. Hello Jay, Welcome and good luck with your grow. I agree Strain Hunter series are a great watch.
  21. Hi JSM, I saw a video on instagram of a dog eating a cannabis plant. I also added a bit extra soil with my first grow as the seedling was a bit tall. The wild animals are nice to watch, but can be annoying with eating plants, i use netting over the plants they like. I will have to read about Peyote Critical. Your buds from 2018 look fantastic!. I have super lemon haze this grow. The seeds are still in the fridge in the vegetable keeper around 4c. The seedlings are doing very well
  22. They are looking great !!
  23. Great work, lovely plants also, so healthy looking
  24. Hi JSM, I bought my seeds from Atitude and they didnt keep the original packaging and put them in plastic bags which i have in the fridge at 4 degree, for when i am ready. That is very nice of Greenhouse to include a free dvd with purchase. Yes, in my case the street weed is no where near as good as home grown. Ive tried a little of mine, its curing still! That is a good idea with the seedlings to top up soil if they get a bit tall. That is huge, pots of that size. Its worth the effort to grow at home though. I put mine away at night also, otherwise the Kangaroos or Possums would eat them, they eat the Camella plants of mine.
  25. HI Burger Naude, True it would be like Candyland amongst the tall Sativas, seen most of the Strain Hunters Expeditions, i was hoping of finding Australian expeditiosn but I dont think there were any. She's a nice and busy Sativa you have there, full of bud ! Autos would be less yield due to size most under 1meter ( tallest of mine 67cm !)

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.
