Hi, I'm growing the silverback guerilla style, I should've started this a long time ago but after I hurt my feet at work I've been under the influence of strong painkillers because I could barely walk. I thought the plants would die during the heat however I haven't been watering once so I assume the roots have grown so deep that the plants are absorbing water from the swamp or marsh. The plants are growing guerilla style near a spot where I grew last year and last time I was there the plants were big and bushy, roughly around 2.5 meter tall. So far the plants are doing fine so let's see how they'll be doing towards harvest. In the picture the silverback plants are on the right side however they are growing with a lot of other plants so they might be hard to spot but I know which are which, the plants are growing on the edge of a swamp or marsh (not sure which is correct to describe it), the plants are growing among reeds on a mound which is way above the waterline and I also added metric ton of my soilmix to make the mound higher.
So it's 2020 and I'm preparing for another guerilla season, this year I'm doing something different. I am only growing two Green House Seed Co. strains which are favorites from last year The Church and Sweet Valley Kush, these will be some of the few photoperiod strains I'm growing and I also have Frisian Duck (Dutch Passion), Early Skunk (Sensi Seeds), Quick Gorilla (Dinafem), Quick Kush (Dinafem) and Alaskan Purple (Seedsman), also new this season is a field dedicated to autos from Auto Critical Orange Punch, AutoDuck, Auto Glueberry O.G., Auto Brooklyn Sunrise, Auto Colorado Cookies, Auto Orange Bud, Auto Blueberry & Auto Daquiri Lime (Dutch Passion), Blue Amnesia XXL, Haze XXL & Moby Dick XXL, Cheese XXL (Dinafem), Purple Punch Auto (Barney's Farm), Dos-si-Dos Cake Auto (LaMota Seeds), Pineapple Express & Mexican Airlines (420 Fast Buds) and Dedoverde Haze Auto (Humboldt Seed Organization). I'm moving to a different area in the swamp, I'll be preparing it soon and when the ice returns I'm carrying manure to the area and once the sun starts in May I'll really start preparing the area by turning the soil and covering it with a tarp for a week or two. I'm super excited for this years season

Nordic Guerilla Grow Strain: Sweet Valley Kush Grow Medium: Soil Grow method: Organic Nutrients: Greenhouse Feeding and my super soil mix (super soil mix contains cow manure, basalt rock dust, biochar that's been activated in chicken manure & compost for a year before use) I'm actually a outdoor grower and I also am a certified biodynamic gardener who has worked at biodynamic farms and botanical gardens so that's where I have most experience, actually when I joined the forum was the first time I grew indoors but this time I'm going back to my roots to outdoor growing. I started the seeds as soon as I got them at the 26th of March and they sprouted fast, five out of the four had already started to pop up out of the soil at the 6th of May and by 8th of May all five had grown. I only took five seeds I'm actually currently growing 14 plants outdoors if you want to see how that grow is doing you can check it out here ( https://forums.strainhunters.com/topic/12280-the-church-himalaya-gold-big-bang-blue-hash-outdoor-grow/ ). I joined the competition a bit late but I still hope that the plants manage to grow a bit larger so that I can compete, I had planned initially to have my plants out by 1st of May but it started snowing at the 2nd of May which got me keeping them on the balcony a bit longer however now it's starting to get warmer so I hope that the plants manage to grow a bit before I put them out, the spot I've chosen is a swamp in the middle of a nature reserve. I know that I could create a patch in the middle of the swamp but it's a nature reserve and I don't want to damage the pristine nature. It's also the home of a bunch of beaver colonies and other wildlife seeking shelter in the reeds so for me it's important that I don't damage the nature around the area and most importantly I DO NOT WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO ALGAE BLOOMS in the lakes downstream. With that in mind I don't want to disturb or damage the pristine nature and if I made a patch in the swamp, helicopters would easily spot the patch so I don't want to do that, the pots I've choose are 20L pots made from jute so they blend in with the reeds, I had ordered them because I thought it was 30L pots but the garden store had mislabeled them but I don't care now and they are well hidden. The pics I've added are from germinating and a picture of the plants growing on the balcony.
