Hello from South Africa

18 posts in this topic

Hi all. I am a first time outdoor grower from Johannesburg, South Africa. I currently have 3 female Swazis at 17 weeks. The big one is at week 4 of flowering, while the other 2 are lagging behind due to having had to be transplanted. Both have started to drink again and should pull through. No hermie-action visible so far.

Thanks for the welcome. Much appreciated. Yes I will post more. I'm shooting for a true 4/20 harvest, so I still have a bit to go.

Hi and thank you. I believe this strain is in the region of 15 or so weeks of flowering, maybe a bit less, but we have been experiencing extreme heatwave conditions since about October, only punctuated by the occasional thunderstorm every now and then. I bet the heatwave is slowing them down a bit. I have added a 40% shade net and the ladies seem really grateful.

 Hi Naudé

 i wonder if we can compare a zwasi plant to a european popular strain ? and is it a popular strain  in your country?

 Hi Naudé

Hi There, I have not grown any European strains yet (this is actually my first outdoor), but from what I see on the internet, the difference in bud seems to be that the Swazi has long thin buds as opposed to the short fat ones I see in many other grows. I have to add that these bud-carrying branches are very long indeed. I have side branches growing from the third node, that reaches to the very top of the canopy. In other words a branch over a meter long entirely covered in bud. Also, the tertiary branches are all carrying tons of bud.

I don't know if the strain is particularly popular locally, but the fact is that bag seed obtained around here will almost certainly contain some Swazi seeds and perhaps some phenos.

Yes, I watched it too and was surprised that so many of the locals have moved away from the landraces and also started to grow imported exotics for higher yields. I suppose that is to be expected; these places may seem remote and isolated, but in reality these farmers have access to the internet as well.

It is sad though, as these Sativas are pure magic when grown right. Potent and energetic as hell!

Thank you very much. Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder...I can stare at them and fuss and titivate around them for hours, but to my monster-in-law they are nothing but weeds!

The buds look very frosty i hope you get a goed harvest  

Thanks buddy. I don't know yet if the harvest will be particularly large, but just by the look of it, it's gonna pack a punch!

The buds looked so awesome glinting in the morning sun...I just had to go grab the camera and capture some trich-porn. As you'll see, I really got in there! So much so that I had to carry an alcohol soaked cloth since, at that macro distance, the camera lens gets totally smeared with resin.
Notice how the third pic almost looks like an action photo captured with a high speed camera.

Hi SmokeyfromOz, thank you for the kind words. Yes I love me a big Sativa too. Surely you will have seen some of the strainhunters' expeditions. Can there be anything nearer to "Candyland" than when standing in a ripe field that towers over you? If not for extensive supercropping and topping, the taller of my Sativas would have been 3 meters tall!

Personally I don't like Autos and most Indicas seem to rob me of all motivation, but those big photo Sativas I adore.

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.
