  1. hy guys as the title says, that´s my question. i use Biocanna terra soil and the same fertilizer produkts. i also read franco´s article about flushing but that doesn´t answered my question. so is it useful if i flush my plants with that setup or not? thanks for answeres
  2. Just thought i'd share my 1st grow of greenhouse seed line. Down the left or the BK right side is Superbud all 4 week from seed. 1 didn't split & 2 was a runt so there's 7 in now. There in 11l pots with vita soil 2 x 600w, 1 4inch rvk 400cfm, 1 rvk 6inch 800cfm, 1 18inch fan fastend to wall. got a couple of runts as well. Nuttrients. Advanced Nutrients seni grow/bloom & a bit of bcuzz root stimulator. also just had my powder grow nuts delivered For next time though. The pics are from seedlings up to today! which is 13 days flower.
  3. Hi Guys and Girls, I have some bugs on a couple of my plants. At least i think they are bugs, on one of them anyway. I have some little white oval shape bugs on one of my NL autoflowers, the seem to lay eggs on the stem of the plants, I think they are eggs but they look like white flecks, mainlyu and down the main stem , but he bugs hide under the leaves. On my feminized seeds i have some black spots that have appeared over the last couple of days, there are no signs of damp in my room, as has a constant fresh air supply and a fan moving the air 24hr a day. Any suggestions what they could be and how to destroy them. have read about malathion, but not really keen to us chems on the leaves.
  4. hello everyone, i figured since im finnished my auto bombs i should start another thread just for the Great White Shark plant i am currently growing . the medium i used is a peat moss compost, perlite mixture its not the best mixture to be honest ill probably never use it again but it took me a while but think ive got it down with regards to watering and dealing with the strange way peat moss retains water. i struggled at first with it going from generally using soil mixtures. below is just a quick highlight of the veg stage i have more pictures posted in the auto bomb grow i just finnished off. GWS vegging sharing 300w's with 4 other larger autobombs GWS day 14 under 20 hr's vegging GWS day 19 vegging on the side GWS day 24 after being transplanted from a 2 L two a 12 " bell pot thought to hold around 7 L's it was around this time as you can see in the picture about i noticed having the plant down low and to the side was causing it to stretch more then i like so i re positioned the lights and used raisers to lift the plant up in an attempt to stop the streching. shortly after this photo at around day 30 of vegging the plant was fimmed once as another way to battle the streching in in conjunction with bringing the plant closer to the lights. GWS day 39 vegging. and as you can see here it worked. altho this strain really impresses me with how well it grows with little attention i would love another grow with this strain from scratch under the lights on its own to see just how well it can preform in my settings. GWS day 43 of veg (last day of veg) GWS day 7 flowering 12/12 by now it has been sharing 300W hps with only one other autobomb in full flower on day 8 it went under the full 300W's of hps to its self. stay tuned for another update on day 14 of 12/12!!!!!
  5. Hey Hunters. Hope you are all goooood As the title states, this is a Mixed diary i decided to put all the strains into one diary for the time being, if i have enough time i will split soon but for the time being i thought i'd put it down together so here goes. I Started my diary off in a blog - so give that a once over after if you want more bits Altogether i soaked 37 seeds, with expecting a few to not germinate etc i figured in time i would be able to get the numbers down to the final 12 ladies. well that went wrong.... very very wrong but on the good side All germinated apart from 4, 1 DNA genetics 60 day wonder out of 6 and all 3 of the Samsara seeds Sweet black angel which was a really disappointing and i could accept it was my fault if all my others did not germinate but they did.... all 33 of them! with the 1 casualty of the Exodus cheese when she was a seedling now down to 32. So the Rundown of whats Alive and kicking 7 - Greenhouse - The Doctors 6 - Greenhouse - Exodus Cheese 5 - DNA Genetics - 60 Day Wonders 5 - Greenhouse - Super Critical Auto's 4 - Cali Connection - Buddha Tahoe 2 - DNA Genetic's - RockLock 1 - G13 Labs - GigaBud 1 - Dinafem - Cheese 1 - Dinafem - Blue widow With my plans of choosing the best looking girls and getting them down to just 12, well that went well the way you probably guessed it, i kept them all..... so i had to buy two more tents 1 small for seedlings/clones/auto's and the other a medium tent. So the equipment list is as follows; 1 - 120x240x200cm Budbox 1 - 100x100x160cm Budbox 1 - 75x75x100cm Budbox 2 - Ruck Extractor/ Rhino Filers 1 - Intake fan (reversed for small tent extraction needs filter) 3 - 400w HPS in 2 Diamond shades, 1 Parabolic shade 1 - 125w CFL Blue hanging 1 - 125w CFL Red in Euro reflector 3 - 6" fans 1 - 10" fan 2 - Pc fans connected to phone charges Soil - Plant Magic Soil Supreme Nutrients; Plant Magic Old Timer range Grow & Bloom Plant Magic Catalyst Plant Magic Root Stimulant Plant Magic Bio Silicon Using the Old Timer grow schedule - Greenhouse Powder Feed - Mostly Indica Everything has gone smoothly so far minus the Electricity company cutting off the Electricity for my area for a day where i had to do an emergency evacuation of the girls to anywhere around the house where there was light, apart from that the Gigabud grew to fast and has got a bit too hot so the tips started to curl. Things i have noticed with the strains so far is the the Buddha Tahoe loves to grow tight to the main stem which is really annoying where the others tend to branch out more especially the Doctor and Ex-cheese. All of them have had very vigorous growth. The plants of which i Fim'd have gone mental bud sites everywhere my last mission was complete with lovely huge cola's now i'm on the mission for many many mini cola's While i was Fimming my girls i decided to leave a couple o'Natural to see how the plant looked like naturally this was done 1 Buddha tahoe and 3 Doc's and 1 Rocklock and well i wish i did fim them all. The Doctor and Rocklock has explosive growth! Il Post a few pics from the beginning and the move onto the most recent. they have now bin in on 12/12 for 2 days in the big tent and 5 days in the medium tent. all with having approx 40 days since sprouting. The auto's are mainly in the small tent with 2 super crit's on 12/12 in the large tent. there are 17 in the large tent, 5 in medium tent and 9 in the small tent (all auto's apart from 1 exodus dwarf) And i think that's it! now for the pics, hope you all enjoy my diary and il try to keep it entertaining Until the next update, Peace

  7. Hello fellow hunters! -Started with soaking 8 seeds on 18/3/2012. -On 19/03/2012 i have put them on wet round cotton wool my wife uses for make up -The seeds were all cracked on 21/03/2012 and i have planted them on that day and 6 of them have shown their heads on 23/03/2012 and 2 are still struggling a bit but i think they will make it. -Today 25/3/2012 i have taken some pics of the Money Makers. Soil -They are trying to catch up. I am using Plagron Light mix soil and i have watered them with plagron roots and some citric acid. EC 0,55 PH 6,5 Water temp. 20,3 C Hydro They are in a home made dwc start box on clay pebbles and started on rockwool cube. The nutes i have used in the start box are HyPro A+B and Plagron Roots and Hypro PH-. Water temp. 20,3 EC 0,80 PH 5,8 The veg room is a tent on the side 90x90x160 cm with 1 x 250 watt MH and 1 x 100 watt T5 and a humidifier, little fan, extractor fan with fan control. This was it for Day 2 of Veg on the Money Makers and hoping you guys enjoy this adventure.

  9. Already forcing plants to flower from about one week ago.. Time is coming (click pictures to enlarge) Left to Right: Kalashnikova, Dr. Grinspoon, King's Kush and White Lemon! In front are the two NL Autos. Kalash and Dr. Grinspoon and one of the two NL Autos: King's Kush and White Lemon: Take care
  10. i just bought some new nutrients and on the bottle it sayed they used citric acid i am assuming this is to lower the ph. so basically i have a question for anyone who has exsperiance with using citric acid especally in coco coir. i am wondering because i can get citric acid by the box full for free. in soil i can just use my tap water because it happens to be around 7 ph so i can get away with it, even tho its not ideal. i wanna switch to coco and i know that i will need something to adjust the ph with that. so what i wanna know is citric acid good or are there anythings that are better. ive tryed vinigar but the plants dont seem to like that very much and i know there are products you can add to your medium so basically i wanna know what is the best product for stablizing your ph when your ph is too high. and also what products can you use when its too low that are safe for the plants.
  11. Both transplanted last night, the Kalashnikova from a 2L SmartPot and the Dr.Grinspoon from a 0,5L round pot. (click pictures to enlarge) The Kalashnikova (free growing): The Dr.Grinspoon (topped): both: Take care

  16. How can I maximize the yield of each plant? I am a patient with a medical card in Colorado. I use about an ounce of marijuana a week to ease the pain of my spinal cord injury. I am allowed to grow six plants but my yield per plant is only about an ounce so I can supply myself with only a fraction of my need. How can I grow enough marijuana to meet my needs? James, Walsungburg, Colorado Colorado law limits the number of plants that you may have to six, as well as the amount of dried marijuana to two ounces. The law does not limit the size of the plants or the amount of light that can be devoted to their growth. If you are yielding an ounce per plant and you have six plants you are probably growing the plants under a 400-watt or 600-watt high intensity discharge lamp such as a high pressure sodium lamp. Plants produce the food they need for growth and energy by using light to power photosynthesis. This series of photo-electro-chemical reactions produces sugar from carbon dioxide and water. So light equals growth and yield. With more light the yield increases. The best strategy given these facts is to grow very large plants. In Oregon, another state with plant number limits, some medical patients grow large plants that are eventually placed in individual three-footsquare (3' x 3') containers. Each container is placed under a 1000-watt lamp. While they are growing vegetatively for about two months, they are pruned to increase major branching and to fill their allotted canopy space. Only then are the plants forced to flower. I think the process can be sped up by growing the plants under intense light. As they grow, spread them out. Give them more space so they can branch out. Rather than pruning, let the plants grow multiple branches. If they are bushy and form a pin-cushion shape they should be grown to a size large enough to collectively fill the canopy of the light, approximately 12-16 square feet. If the strain you are growing tends to be tall, the plants should be allowed to grow to about six feet in height and then placed in containers that are designed to hold the plants horizontally. There are containers that are specifically designed to allow plants to be watered easily in this position. The horizontally placed plants are put next to each other under the lights in a 16 square foot (4'x4') space per 1000-watt light. The side branches will turn to the lights and grow vertically, each becoming a main stem. When these branches are 15-20 inches tall, it's time to place the plants into flowering. When the plants are harvested, use the regeneration method. Leave vegetation on all the branches. That way, less time will be spent on growing infrastructure during the vegetative period; the branches are there, they only have to be re-leaved before being forced to flower again. Harvesting all the plants at once would put you over the limit of two ounces. To avoid this problem, you should space your plants' harvest times by starting plants a month apart. When one plant is removed from the flowering room, another is placed inside to begin its flowering journey. To stay under the two-ounce limit, each plant could be harvested over a period of several weeks, as the medicine is used. If you are making your own clones, keep one plant as a mother. About a month before a garden is to be harvested, take large branches from the mother plant for cloning. Place three or four inches of the branch in a very moist cloning material in a humid cloning room or under a large dome that conserves moisture. The clones will develop roots slowly but they will be rooted by the time the plants are harvested. There are several drawbacks to using the methods described above. First, it requires a lot of light, much more than you would need under a more efficient system with more plants. Second, since the garden is perpetual, there is no down time to clean the garden or get rid of pests and infections. It pays to be innovative. Be very clean and careful about what you bring in to the garden and integrate cleaning and sterilizing into your routines as preventive maintenance. ask ed, rosental i never knew this technique can be done indoors but i have done something similar to this outdoors and its a really cool way of increasing your yeild when your outdoors its also a really good way to hide your plants as they keep a really low profile the quality of the bud is quite nice as well it really cuts down on the smaller fluffy buds but there is some down sides to this technique it can be quite stressful as your basically tricking the plant into thinking the side branchs are the top of the plant but when done right the results can be quite impressive. so what i wanna know is who has tried this technique indoors i haven't ever heard of it before being used in an indoor setting but because of the results i got outdoor i could see how indoor it could just kill it in a medical set up where you cant grow to many plants . if anyone has used this techique and has pictures but i dont meen those set up where the plants are on an angle this is completely horizontal.
  17. Transplanted last night, from a 0,5L squared pot: Take care
  18. Going to be a big bush... I'm inloved with this strain already! Thank you King!!! (click pictures to enlarge) (with the NL Autos in the background) check here to see it at the time of transplant: http://www.strainhun...-kush-into-40l/ Take care
  19. Hey guys! Today morning a new baby girl rised, it's a "Dr. Grinspoon" (Barney's Farm) for my Outdoor grow of this year! It's a 100 days flowering strain! Yes you're right, 14 weeks!!! To get in touch with connoisseur strains sometimes take a while right? Still, decided to try this due to such a beatiful morphological structure during flowering! So here she is: That's all for today! Take care

  23. Going to start my first grow journal with the Great White Shark. This is the first time i grow GWS. I have 2 mothers and have cut 20 clones from them. I am going to use 12 of the clones. 10 in 20 ltr pots on soil. And 1 in a 45 ltr Smart Pot on soil and 1 a 20 ltr dwc bubbler bucket on clay pebbles for testing. I am using Plagron Terra Grow, Bloom, Roots, Green sensation, Enzymen and GHE ph down dry for the soil. And for the bubbler bucket i will use Plagron Hydro A/B instead of Terra Grow and Bloom and the rest is the same as the soil. GWS mothers: GWS Clones (4 days): When the clones are rooted i will continue with more pics. Hope you guys enjoy!

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.
