Black Russian grown in Central Washington

18 posts in this topic

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.

They usually start changing into bloom in the 3rd week of August or so.

@jsm it's super hot where I live in the desert, but it rained super hard one night last week and it really fucked up a couple plants, broke off a bunch of branches. Sorry to hear about your mold issues. I hate that. Though it's not much of a concern where I'm at cuz it's so hot here

It's hard to get good pics of most my plants due to their size and the space they are in and these two girls are no different. The buds on these Black Russians are massive Spears! Really huge, and smell super skunky and fruity. This would be the sixth week of flower.

@OG.Naj no they aren't quite ready yet, I'm not sure what to do because mid next week the over night low temperature is going to be well below freezing for 3 days in a row. I'm going to cover them with plastic and blankets as best I can to at least prevent the dew/frost from getting to them but still I'm very worried I have 16 plants outside and they are only at week 7 of bloom. I need more time it doesn't look like I'm gonna get. Ive lived here 5 years and this has never happened before.

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.
