  Hello to the Strain Hunters and Green House Seed Co. Crew !  I am very excited to be back again this year!  Last year I had a post covering my techniques with a landrace sativa that I found in the mountains of Sonora Mexico.  This round will be some great genetics from the Green House Seed Co. Team!  Thank you guys and gals for all the stoke!   And to Franco, always  keeping you in our hearts and minds and sending smoke signals to you my brother where ever that may be!  Your are truly missed and never forgotten! Respect!



  This is going to be a journal started up with a beautiful strain from GHSC, the Caboose!  This wonderful lady is a cross between Trainwreck and Salmon Creek Big Bud.  Very excited to be growing this out for all to enjoy and maybe even see something new and kewl that you have not seen yet.  My techniques are a bit unique and deliver results above and beyond many other applications and techniques that I have come across and studied in the past. 


  There are many ways of doings things.....

        And this is how I do mine......


I will be starting two Caboose seeds this round with preparation for 7 other strains to come into effect shortly. One seed will be germinated 3 days after the first.


Germination process was simply popping the seeds in a small glass of RO water for a few hours and observe their progress of water absorption.  At which point I transfer them to damp paper towels *organic* with a mild honey/water mixture for extra root vigor from the sugars it comes in contact with as well as the great antibacterial effects of the honey which play a great role in my several techniques I use from germination to cloning to extra natural flower booster.   


After 7 hours in the paper towel, the first seed popped revealing a solid white root tip getting ready to transfer to an organic soil medium I mix in-house from the prior years compost and add some pea gravel and perlite to the mix.


36 hours later, she came to be!





  Coming in at day 4 and this lady is looking solid!  It it looking like she may be more on the Big Bud side more so than the Trainwreck from her quick upward growth and vigor!  Very excited to see this lady perform!  


  I also popped the other Caboose seed and just planted her into her medium.  She will be started in a mixture of banana leaves, grass clippings, pea gravel, lava rock, perlite and sand using organic compost teas to start.  After she is up to day 14 she will be transitioned into her hydroponic ebb and flow system using General Hydroponics Flora Series nutrient line with my own measurements. Good times and loads of stoke!  I hope you will all enjoy whats to come!  






Starting off day 2 from pop this Caboose little lady is looking like she will be loving her new home!  When she has developed enough over 14 days she will then be transitioned into her permanent ebb and flow system.  She is starting out with organic compost teas for the first two weeks at which point after her transition she will be fed General Hydroponics Flora Series.  Her older sister will be in organic soil the whole grow with only organic compost teas as her feed.  Super Stoked to be able to throw this down for everyone!  Saludos!








This is the first seed popped coming in really vigorous on day 8!  She is most definitely looking more towards her Big Bud side!  Stoked on that!

A few more snaps of the last few days!  Really happy to be seeing this strains great genetics coming out!

Coming into days 6 and 10 these ladies are bringing the stoke meter to richter!  Very kool and interesting strain at this point!  


With two seeds popped, it is looking like two phenos are coming out.  One being more of the Big Bud parent and the lady in the pea gravel mixture is leaning more towards the Trainwreck parent!  Good times!








Getting things ready for the ebb and flow setup for the second Caboose!  She is looking a lot like the Trainwreck phenotype that I am looking for and have heard so much about!  The purple Trainwreck pheno would be a great find!  









Coming into days 15 and day 11.  The Caboose in soil just got topped in the evening of the 14th day one hour before lights out to give her the evening hours to recoup a bit.


Also-------------  The Caboose sister on day 11 is showing Trainwreck mutations!  Trainwreck is very well known for an extra leaf that grows on her leaves which will also great a small bud there if left to flower!  This is a very exciting sign which is what I am looking for with this great strain!  Thanks again to everyone at Green House Seed Co. and the Strain Hunters for allowing this grow to take place and to everyone out there interested in this magnificent species of plant!  


Sending you all a big box of stoke!








Very excited to keep you all up-to-date to the on goings with these two solid strains, Caboose!  


There are also a few photos from other grows posted on instagram for anyone interested.  @multitechgrow


Keep the stoke high and I will update some other shots pronto!  


Any comments, questions, criticism, curiosities?  They are all welcomed and supported!  



Thank you for taking the time to see what my techniques and  passion are all about!!







Update to Journal for Caboose in Organic Soil. She was topped 1 hours before lights out on day 14 from seed.


  She really pushed outwards and is starting to fill in from her first node where her Cotyledons are.


    Really looking like she is going to be a bush!  Leaning very much towards the Salmon Creek Big Bud side.


         Exciting times!  Saludos!




    Will update again soon with her lil' sister!  

        She will be transferred into her ebb and flow hydroponic application this weekend and ready to blow up!


Keep that scale on Richter!

Oh yeah, this is going to be a very informative grow journal.


Nice pictures and editting.

hola Cannabissapean!


  Great to see you again also!


  I am a big fan of ebb n' flow applications as well.  For this run I am using the ebb n' flow for both veg and flowering with this lil lady.  I will get some good shots of my system and process.  It is quite the simple build and extremely efficient!  For my larger gardens I use other applications from DWC, NFT to Organic Soils.  For my smaller grows I use very accessible items that you can find at any hardware store.  I do this for those I am mentoring personally and for my photo shots.  


  Very excited to hear your comments, opinion and learning about your styles also!!


thanks for the stoke out!

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.
