  1. Hi Guys, It's been a while since I made a grow journal on the forum , but it feels good to be back. I'm excited to get started with my journal, so I decided to start today despite my current grow having three weeks left. My plan is to pit Sweet Valley Kush against some other kush strains. So I will grow Sweet Valley Kush along side Em-dog , Kosher Kush and Mokum Kush. I will be growing in light mix soil with perlite from my local grow shop, as I like it more than the big brands. The grow will start on my window sill for three weeks, before going under a 250w MH lamp. Once large enough they will be flowered under a 315w CMH lumatek light. I plan to use the powder feed biofeed for my grow. So I have started the seeds in some PH'd water 6.5, which has been aerated to get rid of some chlorine. They will stay there for 36 hours before I place them in soil. So I will be back soon with the next episode.
  2. Inizio la mia avventura, il mio diario inizia ora buona fortuna a tutti e buon divertimento.
  3. This is my first post in this forum. I thought it a good idea to start by some background regarding my growing experience and history. I am a mid 30s adult that live in South Africa and have been growing for personal use for more than 10 years. I fell in love with the plant the moment I took my first drag. What intrigued me was the complexity, veriaty and diversity of the plant and of course the effect. It was only later in my early 20s that I started my research and experimentation in growing. As I live in South Africa where we have lots of sunshine, I mainly grew outdoor and mostly local strains where I got the seeds from the local pot I smoked at the time. Since then I have grown a number of different amazingly diverse strains, all natural and organic..... somewhat since n use vegetable fertilizer from time to time to nurture and replenish my soil.
  4. These are 5 Northern Lights plants I germinated from feminised seeds from SeedSupreme. They are lush and we'll rooted, I'm transplanting them into 18 gallon storage totes I've converted for drainage and dug holes in the ground for, so that the plants are at ground level. The soil is a premium blend called Happy Frog to which I've added mycorrhizal bacteria both mixed in and applied at transplant hole where the roots make contact. I will be fertilizing with "Sensi-Grow" from Advanced Nutrients. I will also be using an additional live microbe supplement called "Photosynthesis Plus".
  5. These girls are two "Black Russian" I germinated from Feminised seeds purchased from SeedSupreme. They are gorgeous, green, and well rooted. As with all my plants I introduce mycorrhizal bacteria at transplant zone where roots make contact, as well as layered deeper in the soil. Throughout their lives I will continue to apply mycorrhizal inoculate to the substrate via a liquid supplement called "Photosynthesis Plus". I will fertilize this year with "Sensi-Grow" and "Sensi-Bloom" from Advanced Nutrients. This strain is a 70/30 indica dominant variety I chose due to it's short squat features that should be easy to keep under 6 feet which is my height restriction on this side of the house. This is also why I've set the containers (18 gallon) into holes I dug into the ground.
  6. So it begins. The first of this year's crop goes outside. All my other genetics this year are from seedlings but these ones being clones I bought at once im going to journal them together. Some are a little nute deficient as I left them in small clone containers a little long, but they'll be lush again in no time.
  7. These two Amnesia plants are my last ones to start journaling this summer. Sorry if I'm flooding the outdoor section of forum with my journals but I promise they will all become interesting in time. So the thing about these two is that they came for free from seed bank so that is to say I didn't pick them, but in their direct parentage is Cinderella 99 which I grew last year and loved. The thing is though that it's a super tall growing sativa and I don't have any more room in my sativa section, which means I have to grow it with my indicas which mean I have to keep it under 6 feet. I've never been big on topping my plants multiple times. Last year for instance I topped all 20 plants a single time at roughly 4 feet tall. I like the Y shape that technique renders. I usually try and keep my tie downs simple as well but these two are going to need some serious toppings and tie downs to fit in the space I have for them. I'm just gonna keep topping and topping all veg cycle. If anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears.
  8. Well, hasn't it been a while? During the last 4-5 months i've been living a constant hell, between anger and suicidal thoughts. Our political and economical situation (Italy) hasn't been the greatest, and my personal situation was just pure shit, 100% DOP. Without the possibility to grow marijuana for research and, well, fun purposes - legally speaking - i had my head wrapped in a constant anxiety status and migraines, other than the feel i've been useless for my whole life (which isn't that long, but hey, we all gotta start somewhere). Been talking to a friend about this, and while he didn't understand possibly 90% of my situation, he did propose me a good trip to Nepal. Of course, you can't rely on promises in our "western" world, so i've passed 3 months planning and replanning trips as he kept changing our destination. At one point, i had enough. I had to leave, i had to run from my town. At least for a while. Enough time to clean my mind and body of all the shit i've been living these days. I took my decision. Departed on 19th Feb, Destination Kathmandu, more precisely Phutung Village, in Nepal. Possibly one of the poorest countries worldwide. Volunteering in an orphan home. Reconnecting with humanity, and of course nature at its purest state. Arrived on the 20th, afraid as fuck, i find my contacts waiting me out of the airport. We take the taxi, and the driver, Surya, explains me in a very poor english what the situation in Nepal is. The people, the economics, everything that i "should" know about Nepal or, at least, of where i'm headed. Needless to say, i got even more scared, with my initial thoughts passing between "Oh that's beautiful" to "Holy shit where the fuck have i landed". We arrive at our "home", which is a flat of approximately 15sq mts, shared toilet and no kitchen. Yes, i've been shitting in squat toilets for nearly 3 weeks, now. God help me. The first thing you notice about Kathmandu is the extreme pollution going on in the city. Dust and Air pollution make the people live in a constant grey fog, wearing masks even in their own home. The second thing you notice is that there is no garbage collection. Anywhere. The whole place is an open dump, and i still haven't understood if this is because there is no time to think about it (after the 2015's earthquake, the city is in a constant renewal situation), or if it has its roots in their culture. Anyway, no matter where you are (city, village, nature), you throw away your trash at the side of the streets. Huge pity, as the view is astonishing, and people grow food in this situation (with trash in grown fields). The third thing, which is possibly the best about Nepal, is that people here are kind, generous, friendly to anyone, local or foreigner. There is no concept of violence among each other, to Nepali people we're all brothers from different mothers. There is also no concept of "tomorrow". People live their lifes as if it was their last day on earth. Which is possibly what changed me, in these 3 weeks, to an atomic level. Nepali weed is, unfortunately, horrible. Most "grow operations" are conducted on the side of streets, and without care of male/female separation. Taste is good, but to roll one joint, it may take you up to 10 minutes, as removing all the seeds is a hellish pain. 99% of the weed you find here is Sativa dominant, but because of its non-separation of males and females, the high is very similar to an old, abandoned, moroccan hashish (slow and chilly, no buzz whatsoever). Ganja costs 1000 rupies per 60 grams (around 9 euros for the current change). I wonder why. The best ganja i've smoked in these 3 weeks is something that resembles a Mango Haze. To make a comparison, to get the same high you get with European weed, you'd need to smoke around 4 full joints of this. Apart from this, i've lived possibly the greatest festival ever celebrated in Nepal: Shivaratri. And this year, out of any luck, it was the greatest in 80 years. Shivaratri consist, of course, in celebrating Shiva, and it means that all Nepal can smoke weed, hashish, and drink weed-milk tea for the whole day. In Pashupatinat's temple, you'll see the nucleus of the festival, with monks dancing naked and high on hashish (Yes, Naked. Dicks flip-flopping allover the place), tourists and locals getting high and dancing and singing, and every possibile food you can imagine (local only, though). There was also a fireplace which smelled like burned pig, and i later found out they burn dead people in that fire. My friend took some photos of that, with one photo clearly showing someone's leg on fire. During the last 5 days, i got Traveler's diarrhea (fun times), and i seriously thought i was in danger as i spent more time on the toilet than sleeping. Luckily, my body adapted and i'm now back to jumping and screaming. Lastly, my 11 brothers here are crazy kids, ranging from 5 to 12 year old. Their only toys are 2 spinning tops and a Nintendo 64, other than a ball that resembles more a Rugby ball than a football one. What kills me about them, other than the conditions they live in (and love to live in), is their school system: completely fucked up. A 5 year old kid will get the same program as a 15 year old boy, meaning he'll be forced to solve physics equations, while the 15 year old guy may be asked to solve 3+7 for his exams. Now, i'm sitting on my wooden bed, writing you this message with a wifi that relys on the super-unreliable electricity, coming and going every 15-20 minutes. As soon as i'll have time, or possibly when i'll be back, i'll post some pictures. Until then, stay safe, smoke and enjoy your life. You truly got one, don't waste it on thinking about other's opinions. You are the god of your own life. Peace!! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ok, now it's really been a while. Woken up by a 4.1 Mag Quake, today is the first day Internet came back up. As soon as i got this chance, i thought of updating the thread. I got some news. It's been a week of "Hunting", or how the locals call the "Let's go search for some weed". I got my package of bad luck, but in the end, through persistance, i got my prize. I managed to get contacts with a grower, 42km north of my position, which is currently Phutung Village. Got there and bought some weed. 1500 rupies (14 euros) for almost 50 grams of True Nepalese Himalayan Weed. I also managed to get some data out of it: they grow it from July to April, and while the climate during winter is pretty harsh (i've been living, in february, +25° day +6° night), the plants adapted and survive the cold periods. They dry the product for 2 weeks, and then they store it in pots, instead of jars. Unfortunately, they don't separate males from females, but so far it's a decent price to pay for some really good weed. The weed i have bought is 1 year old from harvest, and the colours have long vanished (i guess from exposure to different temperatures, and overall a poor curing condition), but not the high.. Which is long lasting, and changes from an active high (the first 30-40 minutes) to a very chilly and stoney high (the next 2 hours). In 2 grams of weed, you can find around 5 good, developed seeds, and 10-15 bad, burned, or undeveloped seeds. From the look of it, it's a 100% sativa strain, with very hairy flowers, but not as compact as an indica would be. Maybe there has been some crossing with other genetics, but so far all the weed i managed to get around here is (and feels like) a sativa. Again, i still can't upload pictures, as i lack the correct equipment to (and internet connection is really, really unstable). As soon as i'll get back, i'll post some pics. Meanwhile, the earthquake hasn't provoked any damage in my area, as it happened around 60km south from me, but the shake lasted around 4 seconds, and it made my ass jump (while sitting on the floor). Bouncy. Here things proceed as usual. I managed to find an italian furnace, making Pizza! My stomach is safe. Catch you in some time. Stay safe you all. Peace! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Managed to get some images. The view from the upper hill. Drained river, and Kathmandu slowly eating the valley. Sorry for the tilt. Wonder why the electricity's coming and going faster than the galaxy moving through space.. 8months old Himalayan Gold. Great smoke so far. Peace! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 31st March. 1.5 months in. Kids are finishing their school exams during the course of the weekend. After that, they'll have a period of holidays, lasting 2 weeks. Then back to school. After Holi festival (Colour festival, coincidentaly with the start of spring), celebrated on 20th March, life in the Phutung neighborhood has been fairly quiet -apart from a couple thunderstorms that looked like Ragnarok- so i had the time to go hunting a bit more. Yes, i know, i'm surrounded by weed. Literally. During the last hunting sessions i gathered up different types of Ganja (Nepali way to call it), and if you have a good eye, you can see it's growing on the side of streets, in countrysides, on hills, in the cement... everywhere. But this didn't stop me from going further. I want quality. I like quality. Smoking without quality is just hurting yourself more. So... i found quality. Yesterday, after a happy trip of 8 hours in the mountains west of Kathmandu, between two districts (Kathmandu-Chhatre Deurali) at the happy speed of 7-13km/h -due to the streets NOT being streets, but a complex snake of holes and bumps and rocks- I finally got some hash. Oh boy, this is amazing. Now, I am fighting fever, common cold, plates since Friday, and although i can't really feel any taste of anything (including the spicy food, which is literally any food), I DO can smell the hashish. The smell is very pungent, like one you get from a very good and developed sativa. It has hints of lemon and mint, or at least something really strong and like that, maybe lavander. The high is what confirms me its origin is from a Sativa: you don't get stoned, you get active. It lasts around 3 hours per small joint, say the size of a rolled cigarette, and you feel muscular relaxation plus a good buzz in your head. When you smoke it, it doesn't scratch your throat at all. The only true CON to it is that since it's pollen hash, your joint will be always lit. Smoke fast, or you'll waste a third of the joint! On the way back home, i noticed some little Ganja plants. The climate in Nepal is widely different along its borders. In my zone, plants reach heights of about 50cm if exposed to good light. In the plains, 20 days ago, they were already 150cm tall. It's very possible i witnessed different strains, as they might grow them in different zones indeed to “harvest” the best conditions possible for that strain.. But it seems also improbable, since the vast majority of the plants i see around here ain't tall at all, but some are starting to flower -Yes, at 31st March- while the plants in the plains were already showing hairs on 26th February. I am not allowed to take pictures of the ones near my home (I'll try), but for now i can show you the plants that grow around the hills. Clearly Sativa dominant. In 10 days, i'll have an italian volunteer, which also happens to be my best friend, come over here in Nepal and help me with the kids. Finally some company! I've been so busy talking in english and nepali that i forgot what Italian actually is (a mess). He smokes like hell, so i'll have somebody coming hunting with me.. or different zones. Maybe he can get seeds as well. Alright, time to head out for me. I'll catch you all in the next update. Peace!! P.S. The Strainhunters website tilts my images. I tried tilting them myself to adjust to the website, but the website just tilts them the opposite side. You troll! Sorry for the tilt. Double P.S. Apart from the motorcycle, we had to proceed for half an hour deep in the jungle, to avoid police blocks. This is the view from a little track they recon and follow. If you get lost... You're FUCKED! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NEPAL TRIP – 2 Months In (Updated) Sorry everyone for my absence. The ISP company that handled our connection, ITEL, has failed on 15th April, just one day after Nepal's new year, 2076. Nepali Police is refunding every ITEL Customer that had connection issues (everyone, included us), up to a year of subscription. A year of subscription costs around 305 euros. I don't know how many people paid for it.. but i guess a lot. Kathmandu counts around 9.000.000 individuals. Anyway, apart from internet – health issues (spent last week under a nice 39° fever), i encountered a lot of issues regarding “hunting”, as well. The dealer that “managed” nice hashish and marijuana, is now increasing his knowledge in jail. This destabilized a bit the hunting sessions: all the way west of Kathmandu is in “block alert”. Hunting is restricted to other zones, of course, but this means more control by the police, until the “west coast” gets free again. So, i went hunting 3 times from that, and in neither of those times -consider around 8 hours a day of session, on a motorcycle, on roads that rarely show asphalt- i found anything decent. Luckily enough, the contacts i got around here are good people, willing to share: Sharing is Caring, as they say around here. One of the gifts i received is a very nice dark sativa, and so far it is possibly the worst looking-best tasting one i found around here. Another good point to it is that i found only 8 seeds in the last 6 joints i rolled. No need to mention i'm saving every single seed of this strain. Now, i've been around here for 2 months, and i think i got a real hold of how the ganja grows around here. First of all, most of the ganja that grows in the streets is the result of people removing seeds from flowers and throwing them, literally, on the side of streets. You'll see a fuckton of varieties growing all mixed up. Short sativas, tall indicas, and there's absolutely no care about those: nobody gives water, or actually cares in any manner, to any of those plants. In Phutung, i've seen a few ganja plants growing near a police station. They don't care about those. Second of all, police will remove your plantation only if it exceeds.. a certain amount of plants. Which is not specified. Again, they don't care, up to a point. Which, again, isn't specified. Some say 1 plant, some say 10, some say 3.. Nobody knows, and again, nobody cares. Third of all, all the ganja plantations are the result of either a collection of the old season's seeds, or just naturally grown (No seed collection, just waiting for the next season). This means that in most plantations, there is no male/female separation, hence the reason why i still have to find seedless ganja. The last sativa i've been smoking is, again, almost seedless.. but i guess there's really not much you can do when you got only females, but all your neighbours have males. Lastly, i found a couple plantations. A little one (counting around 40 plants), and a bigger one (counting half a thousand). The little one is exposed to south, and all the plants, even if they show differencies in their genetic traits, don't reach 60cm in height. I'm not joking. Sativas 40-50cm tall, beginning to flower. This means, to me, a max height of around 150cm. Perfect for any indoor OP. I wish i could be there on harvest day... Unfortunately i wont. But with the amount of seeds i've collected, i'm sure i'll find some strains that contain this genetic trait. The bigger one is exposed to north-east. Plants result taller, but i guess because they receive less direct light, hence growing taller to “look for light”, like most plants do anyway. Again, no male/female separation there either. In-Edit: Police cares about dealers. Yesterday, while playing football with kids, what i suppose was either an angry father or brother, came rushing in the middle of the field, with a company of around 10 people, including a well hidden cop. They left the field, and got to this poor guy, apparently only smoking a joint, and stopped him from running. Out of the prairies, another cop jumped out of the field just like what i would describe as “a panther”: i couldn't see him coming until he actually “spawned” in the field. Behind him, other 2 cops. For all i know, they caught the young dude with around 100grams of ganja in his bag. They tied his hands with a rope (Yes, a rope) and brought him away. I was scared shitless, as i too was buzzing a joint. Luckily made it to hide the remaining half-joint in my bag and witness the scene as an innocent little girl. Yes, i feel bad, but what could i do? Yell “Hey, i got ganja as well” and run away? As soon as i'm able, i'll take a couple ninja pics and submit them. Peace! PICS IN! A sativa female, next to a sativa male. The female is around half a meter tall, and is already flowering. The male doesn't reach 30cm. A good sized male, and some females in the background. The small plantation. Huge number of males, some females here and there. I guess this year's harvest's not gonna be great... hehehe Some other plants near the plantation. The ones near the "wall" look much more indica than the counterparts in the field. Peace! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Managed to get some more pictures of the "small" plantation. Upon a closer look, the small plantation revealed to be a good sized one. Some of the more advanced females of the plantation. I'd give the flowers 3-5 more weeks, and call them ready for harvest. Sorry for the tilt. Again, i don't seem to be able to get the right angle, according to this web encoder. This female smelled like Lavander. This one, instead, smelled like lemon. Or lime. Very intense smell. The new generation. These have not yet started the flowering period, so i guess they're 1-2 months younger than the other section. This, instead, is the personal plantation of a lunatic, living in a home i didn't picture for... well, privacy reasons. Peace! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Heyo. My trip is ready to come to an end. During these last 2-3 weeks i've been on hunting sessions, but without success. Reason is that most growers have ended their stashes and are waiting for the next harvest, which should come in 2 weeks (around June). Since i have my flight back on the 15th, i wont be able to see the new harvest, or taste it for that matters.. but i had my share anyway. On one evening, my landlord asked me to store him some weed, which i had no problem to do. Well, that "some weed" turned out to be 3 grown plants, base-cut, of some field near our home. After a good 3 hours trimming session, me and my comrade ended up with around 400grams of cleaned weed. Now, this weed is bad. Really, really bad. Again, no separation happened so all the flowers have been turned into seeds. But this weed, for the locals, is good to make black. Black would be what we know as of "Nepali Temple Balls". Needless to say, out of the trim, we managed to pull off a .4g small ball of NTB. Which tasted amazingly. The weed itself offers haze odours. One plant smelled incredibly of lemon/lime/citrus, something along that line. Another one had an intense flowery, but itchy, smell. Like Lavander, but more intense. Spiced, i'd say. The third one had no particular smell, other than the hash one you get on your fingers. Removed all seeds and undeveloped seeds, the joint tastes fine, light. I've been smoking it without tobacco as it doesn't kill your throat like some varieties do. Joints, Pipes, it goes down like a nice glass of scotch whiskey. The high is.. mixed. You're active, you're thinking, but also lazy. You may stay awake on the computer for hours, but never actually get up for any needs. This pretty much for all the 3 varieties i was brought. Upon checking on the photos taken, i realized me and my comrade took only selfies.. which i wont share for obvious privacy reasons. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - To wrap it up. Nepal is a wonderful country. Kathmandu is a wonderful mess. During half of the year, the climate provides semi-hostile conditions for weed growth: in the winter phase, you pass from 25° of the day to the almost freezing of night (rarely goes below 0°, but it can happen), while the summer is dominated by monsoons (around 22 days of rain per month, per 4 months). Spring, so far, whopped a nice 38° against a 12° after a storm. Most weed that grows here is Sativa. I've seen some hybrids, but not actually true indicas. Somehow, though, most of the sativas growing here never reach heights taller than 1m. Actually, most plants in flowering i've seen never surpassed 50cm. Which is surprising, considering how sativas grow around the world (2-3m tall plants). I've saved around 200 seeds, divided in little stacks, from the different types of ganja i found around here. Once i'll be setup, i'll run some tests on those. I like the idea of growing a Sativa SOG in less than 1.5m of height. Of course i'll end up with a bunch of phenotypes and a bunch of failures.. but testing is just that. Who knows, maybe i'll end up with the perfect plant to clone. Either way, i have enough material to have fun for years. Anyway. It's been a pleasure to run this diary. It's been a pleasure to run it with all inconveniencies. But also great things and peeps. A big thanks to: - ITEL, the collapsed ISP company i paid a year of wifi. - Many many congratulations to the team of technicians that actually manage to fix issues on poles stuffed with cables, some of which may be 20 years old, making electricity be available again just after a couple days of power outage. - A chapeau to the bus drivers, which manage everyday to not die on roads that can't be called like that, cause they're not roads. They're death traps. - My comrade, that hinted me some places to go "check out". - My landlord, that never asked me rent except a couple joints here and then. - The dogs outside, for singing the most beautiful songs, including "barking" and "howling", at 4 am in the morning. But most importantly, jokes apart, thanks to the villagers, who have been so nice to offer food and help you in any instance of your day, with anything you have to do. Nepali people are the nicest guys you'd ever meet. I hope you guys enjoyed this little thing. I surely did, writing it. Of course it describes just a little cut of what i've been doing here. I also hope you, someday, will come here to discover this place (and the ganja growing around :D) Peace!
  9. So these girls are supposed to take 12-14 weeks of flower time and where I live I'm lucky if I get 12 weeks so what I did was carry them into an out-building to induce artificial darkness 12 and 12. I did this for about two weeks give or take and then stopped as soon as the rest of my plants began to flower. I believe I've succeeded in putting them a couple weeks ahead of the natural schedule. When the flower is finally ready I wanna try making thai-stick you know with the bamboo stick and Rasta hair. I'll update later in flower cycle 😎
  10. ¡Hola Amigos! Buenos humos desde Honduras. Hoy amigos, les vengo a consultar sobre los fertilizantes, he estado navegando por la web y me he encontrado varios blogs que aseguran buenas producciones usando leche, jugo de naranja, jugo de lentejas, hasta agua de tabaco como pesticida, ¿alguno de ustedes ha utilizado estos métodos? ¿Cual ha sido su resultado? ¡VALEN MIL!
  11. Let's go… Seedlings of three Neville's haze plants grown from feminized seeds from «Green House Seeds» (on August 7, 2018, in all three plants - 108 days from seedlings, 56 days from the appearance of stigmas). --- Almost from the beginning of life, and to the middle of July, the plants had a light period of 18/6 (day/night). During the day, the plants stood outside, under the sun, unless there was a strong wind or rain, and in the morning and in the evening, as a "sun", the plants had a 55 watt 4200 (Navigator) lamp. Photos before boarding in open ground (August 7, 2018): Neville's haze 1st plant Height: 96 cm; Interstitial: 5 cm. Neville's haze 2nd plant Height: 113 cm; Interstitial: 6,5 cm. Neville's haze 3rd plant Height: 110 cm; Interstitial: 5,5 cm. --- Seeds ordered from one of the official Russian dealers, in an amount of 5 pieces (one package), of which 3 were sprouting. The seeds were germinated, as written on the GHS website. April 16, 2018 April 16, 2018 April 17, 2018 April 17, 2018 April 18, 2018 --- All three Neville's haze will be grown in the usual way. Place of cultivation: 44° north latitude, Russia, Primorsky Krai. Neville's haze has a rather long flowering period and for complete maturation it is necessary to grow it on more southern latitudes. But even on the 44th latitude, it is quite possible to get an excellent "smoking material". --- To, at the time of flowering, not only mature plants, but also compact ones, it was decided that the plants would grow from shoots to planting in open ground in containers with a volume of ~ 3 liters. But even in "such" volume, the plants continued to grow actively, and at this point it was decided to remove the large leaves that were on the central trunks of plants - this decision slowed, but did not stop the growth. At the end of July, two weeks before disembarkation into the open ground, the substrate was washed in which the plants were located. The substrate in which the plants grew was made by itself: peat (rubbed through a 1x1 cm grid and calcined) 1 part, cow bark (rubbed through a 1x1 cm grid) 1 part, river river "by eye" and a glass (on a bucket of substrate) oak ash . The prepared substrate was spilled 2 times with a solution of "Phytosporin-M". --- In the land, at the site of planting, in the autumn of 2017, black peat was added (it is unknown when, but lies, under the open sky, for more than 11 years, before on the peat, mushrooms grew on their own), 1 kg of superphosphate (nitrogen - 6%, phosphorus - 26% + sulfur, calcium, magnesium). --- Organomineral fertilizer for plants: 1.) Nitrogen humate (N 3% / P 1.5% / K 3%) - in the early stages 2 ml (per 1 liter of water); As you grow up, it takes up to 4 ml. If you give less, it shows a shortage of nitrogen. 2.) Superphosphate solution - 8 tablespoons (granulated superphosphate N 6% / P 26% + sulfur, calcium and magnesium) per 2 liters of boiling water; working solution of 15 ml, and above, per liter of water. --- Outdoors (August 7, 2018) To avoid overturning, in case of strong wind, rain or wind with rain, the plants were planted with the deepening of the root neck: Neville's haze 1st plant Height: 90 cm; Neville's haze 2nd plant Height: 102 cm; Neville's haze 3rd plant Height: 100 cm. --- P.S. I really hope that in general terms, everything will be clear ... for those who become interested.

  13. Hey guys, I am new to growing bud so I thought I'd check here to see what you think. I am in the south of France and I planted my seedlings in end of April. It had a slow start as the weather was awesome in the first two weeks then terrible for about a month. Although there were some nice sunny days in between I noticed she could use some better weather. I gave her weekly nutrients, nothing special though just something with the right balance to keep her nourished. I kept the watering to a minimum, giving her water every three days. I did some late topping which allowed extra colas to form which was nice to see. Now its July and I am almost ready to harvest. All I am worried about is to harvest too early. I see some leaves turning yellow and the white hairs start to turn brown. I think I should try sequential harvesting as lower buds are not forming at the same rate as the main cola. Has anybody tried this? Do you think this would be a good idea? Thanks for your time and interest!
  14. Here are my plants this year, I will be trying to post updates every 2 weeks. My GHS strains are Super Lemon Haze, Lemon Skunk, Cheese, Exodus Cheese. Other strains are Sensi Skunk #1, Female Seeds C99 and Pure AK. I also have a few autos I just put out for fun but really am not focusing on them as much. I have 2 Lemon Skunks, 2 Exodus Cheese, 2 Cheese, 2 Super Lemon Haze, 2 Skunk #1, 2 Pure AK, and 1 C99 going. All of my plants are around the same at 3-4 feet average right now. The one Lemon Skunk I posted a picture of is the tallest at the moment. I didnt post 4 of the plants since theyre smaller because i put them out later, but those are around a foot and half tall right now. I topped most of my plants once, but you can see a few I didnt top. Pics posted below.
  15. High every body!!! I send you some pictures of my second session in tropical weather, i have one Super Silver Haze;. I want to know if the Super Silver Haze can be ready after only 8 weeks (58days) of flowering (i stoped additional light and let her outdoor 58 days ago, here the sun shines 12h per day ). She grew in 6l airpots, i think she had some Azote defficiency during flowering because the big leaves went yellow, from the botom to the top, slowly, all flowering time. I stop giving nutrients 10 days ago to the SSH; sorry for my english, i do my very best!! She looks ready, doesn t she?
  16. Hey everyone - good to be here. Looking for some advice on my girls.
  17. Hello all!!! I live in a small island called Mayotte, near Madagascar. Here, the sun shine 12h per day, all year long. The weather is hot, with a lot of humidity. At this rainy season, the temperatures can climb up to 32 degrees celcius, and near 48-50 degrees celsius under sunlight, at the hotest hours of the day. The temperatures will decrease around april, at the end of the rainy season. I would like to grow some "Super Silver Haze" and some "Arjan's Haze 1", i have a big balcony where i will put 2 or 3 plants, but i do not want them to get too tall, because of my neiboors... I will grow them in 6liters airpots. So, i have several questions: - Are these strains a good choice for this tropical weather? - How will these strains react to a complete life cycle under 12h/day of sunlight? - When will they go into flowering? - How tall could they go with 6l airpots? - Shall i protect them from the sun for few hours of the day when he shines too hot? - I will use a mix of soil and coco, around 30% of coco, shall i use mineral or organic fertilizers? - Is it mendatory to adjust the PH solution? Thanks for help, and really sorry for my english, i am french, i will try to do my best!! Cheers!!!
  18. Hello to the Green House Seed Co. Crew, Community and all the hard working men and woman of this stoked out industry!! It has been roughly a year since my last journal posted here! This is going to be another fun round! Currently there are two great seeds that were germinated and started! Caboose! This is going to be an organic soil with compost teas for feeding and One being transferred to a solid indoor ebb and flow hydroponic application that is of my own production. Lots of stoke and excitement going on over here and I am very happy and humbled to be able to share my techniques, grows and info to the great community here! Looking forward to bringing this to you with maybe some kool things you have not seen or really payed attention too....? Thanks for taking the time to scope things out! Saludos! MultiTech!
  19. Planted 20 seeds from various strains into 2 sq. meters of yellow sandy loam, shovel mixed with few buckets of aged sheep manure and decomposed wood. 50% germination rate directly into the permanent growing medium. Males were not pulled out and the remaining females grew from 40 to 80 cm in height, because I relied mostly on rain as a water source and the other wild weeds originating in the medium was allowed to grow around. The yield was 500 selected seeds and 200 gr of dry buds, not entirely pollinated because they were harvested before full volume of flower was reached.
  20. Hello fellow growers, I'd like to share my progress. I have 4 plants as you can see, the small ones are only about one week old. The bigger ones, are already blooming. I planted them around the end or March and the beginning of April. Sadly, the weather started to get terrible from then up until a few weeks ago. I did not want to throw them away because I believe they will produce something, I'd like to test the taste of them They look quite decent besides a few flaws, but the buds are looking good. The smell is not too strong, which is good. I hope the weather will continue doing good so I can grow much bigger plants from them. I quite underestimated how complicated it would be to grow autoflowers, but I'm starting to understand them a little more as they progress. If anyone has some tips and tricks I'd like to know! I'll try to keep this post updated.
  21. Hello and thank you for the opportunity to learn, share what I already know and associate with like minded people. I am a regular, almost every day smoker for very long time, so I try to cover my own needs and maybe share with only the closest friends whom I can trust. Where I live marijuana is completely illegal apart from the Medical Marijuana story in the public media for the last few years. Therefor I do not sell what I grow because I consider that pushing my luck since I am already getting away with growing it. I grow strictly outdoors and far away from the area that I live in. That is continental climate somewhere in Europe on the lower mountains, altitude 700 meters above sea. The soil is yellow sandy loam because all the compost is washed away from the surface by rain. I prepare the raised bed after every harvest near the natural water spring and abandoned cottage.The area around the bed is on the flat surface in the middle of a very slopped side of the hill. It catches all of the morning sun since it is facing east and misses a few evening hours of it. Trees are close enough to protect from the strongest winds and not block the light at all. I fill the bed with the soil brought up from the stream bank where all the surface nutrients end up, then decomposed wood and finally some aged sheep manure. I am trying to use what I find in the neighborhood. The reason for this is that the area is very hard to reach with the car from the nearest village, so I always walk trough the forest for several kilometers. Besides that, my financial means are very limited so I find this the cheapest way to grow. I do not know much about nutrients and indoor growing but I have been a guerrilla grower for more then a decade. The seeds are the ones I picked from the best weed I smoked and then reproduced creating my own seeds. There are lots of strains that look, smell and taste different but all of them are very potent.
  22. Hello guys, I know that there are many posts on this topic all around the web, but this might be a problem. There is simply too much information about it. I want to prepare myself for outdoor grow 2017. I am looking for your help with strain selection, because the ones I selected this year were diasaster. Here are some details about what I want from strain and some other information: - Effects from smoking should be more on Sativa side - Good weed to smoke when with friends... so for laughing, talking, socializing, maybe some creativity, uplifting... No couch lock effect. - Size of the plant does not matter. It can be really high... So i prefer also high yield from the plant, high in THC. - Information about growing place: Latitude: 46,5 North; Longtitude: 13.7 East. Altitude: 850m; Temperatures are like this. June, July and August are hot. Lets say around average of 30 degrees during the day when there is sunny, but it can also drop to around 20 degrees if there is rain. May and September are a little fresh during nights, during the day it is probably around 20-25 degrees. Flowers will be grown in North-West part of Slovenia. Weather can probably be compared with weather in Austrian Alps on this altitude. If you need more information about something, just ask me and I will provide answers. Thank you for all your answers already in advance. I will be happy with every answer you give me ;O Enjoy!
  23. Hola Aquí mi seguimiento de SuperBud x Trainwreak Dia 1: Germinamos 3 semillas. Paso a comentarles que van a vegetar bajo luz artificial y una vez listas van a ser transplantadas a tierra madre Mi idea es hacer 2 tandas de testeo outdoo, En macetas y en tierra madre

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.
