We have enjoyed another great day of sunshine, this morning at 06.30am when I switched on the fluorescent tubes the temperature inside the shed was about 18C and outside the back of the yard was not in direct sunlight and it definitely felt cooler than inside the shed.

At about 08.30am I put mr moose outside then I had a brew and at 09.00am I checked his thermometer and the temperature was about 28C

I then moved both of the Sweet Valley Kush plants outside and left them at the back of the yard to enjoy the sunshine.

In the early afternoon I move them to keep the plants in direct sunlight and again late afternoon so they enjoy as much direct sunlight as possible.

This evening when I moved them into the shed under the fluorescent tubes the dirt in both plants pouches was pretty dry so I gave them 400ml of water each to give them a drink.

Both plants are enjoying the sunshine and hopefully the powder feed as well, here are some images I took tonight.

The forcast for tomorrow is good we are going to have another day of sunshine, but the weather forcast for Friday is cloudy and showers as well as for Saturday, but it will clear up in the afternoon to become sunny and cloudy and then it looks like Sunday will be sunny again and next week too.

Now that the Sweet Valley Kush have some food they seeem to be getting a move on, I can see new growth on plant #1

More updates soon, happy growing...

Another great start to the day with plenty of blue sky and sunshine.

When I switched on the fluorescent tubes in the shed at 06.30am this morning the temperature in the shed was about 16C and it felt a bit cooler than yesterday both inside the shed and outside.

At about 08.00am I put mr moose with his thermometer at the back of the yard perched on top of the extension ladders in direct sunlight and the temperature was around 20C

When I checked the thermometer again at 09.00am the temperature was about 30C in direct sunlight, so I moved the Sweet Valley Kush outside into the yard to enjoy the sunshine.

Although we have had lots of sunshine again today it has been a bit breezy and the breeze has got stronger as the day has progressed and this has lowered the temperature outside.

So at about 8pm tonight I moved the plants into the shed so they will be warmer out of the breeze under the fluorescent tubes.

The surface of the dirt in the root pouches was nice and dry so I gave them both 400ml of water.

They are definitely enjoying the sunshine and seem to be enjoying the powder feed as well.

I have made a marker for each plant and named them SVK-B#1 and SVK-B#2 to make it easier to identify each plant, obviously SVK is the initials of the strain Sweet Valley Kush and the B is for BioGrow and then a number to specify the actual plant.

This morning when I went outside to the shed to switch on the fluorescent tubes at 06.00am the weather was shit it was cloudy and raining.

The temperature inside the shed on mr mooses thermometer was about 14C when I checked on the plants at 09.00am the temperature was about 16C and it had stopped raining but it was still very cloudy and there were shit loads of dark rain clouds about.

By about 10.30am the cloud was starting to thin out and there ware big patches of clear blue sky and the temperature inside the shed was now 20C

I decided to leave the plants in the shed under the fluorescent tubes until 12.00pm then I moved them out into the back yard where they spent all afternoon basking in the sunshine until about 8.00pm when I moved them into the shed under the fluorescent tubes until it goes dark.

This morning at 06.00am it was cloudy and dull but it was dry, so I switched on the fluorescent tubes and left the plants in the shed.

The temperature in the shed at that time was about 14C, it was definitely cool outside, but not as cool inside the shed.

I had something to eat and a cup of tea while I checked newspaper and relaxed for a while.

About 10.00am I checked the plants and the temperature inside the shed was around 18C but it was still really cloudy.

By 12.00pm the cloud had blown over and there was lots of blue sky and sunshine so I moved the plants outside at that time the temperature in the shed was about 26C.

When I checked the thermometer an hour later at 1.00pm in direct sunlight the temperature was 30C.

I moved both the plants to keep them in direct sunlight at about 4.00pm this afternoon the temperature was about 28C.

Then I moved them again at about 5.30pm so they could enjoy the last couple of hours of direct sunlight before it dipped out of sight.

At 8.30pm I moved the plants into the shed under the fluorescent tubes the temperature was 20C outside in the yard.

Then at 9.00pm I gave each plant 400ml of water the temperature in the shed was 18C

This morning it was very cloudy and dull when I switched on the fluorescent tubes at 06.00am the temperature inside the shed was 16C

When I checked on the plants at around 11.00am the temperature was 18C I had a brew and went for a stroll and by the time I got back at about 12pm the clouds had thinned out and the sun was shining.

So I moved the plants outside to the back of the yard into the sunshine, at 1pm when I checked mr mooses thermometer the temperature in direct sunlight was 30C and there was a very light breeze too.

I kept moving both plants around to keep them in direct sunlight as long as possible then at 8pm I put them into the shed under the fluorescent tubes then when it started to go dark between 9.30pm and 10pm I switched them off and locked up for the night.

Now that my Sweet Mango indoor grow is almost done, I put 4 more Sweet Valley Kush seeds in water to soak for my indoor run in the contest.

I was going to pop 2 more beans and put them outside so I would have them finishing a month after the first two, but the space in the shed is limited and this would just make looking after the plants harder for me, so I decided to be sensible and just pop 4 more beans for inside and play it safe.

Updates to follow, happy growing...

About 2.30pm I moved the plants to keep them in direct sunlight before I went out for a while the temperature was about 28C when I got back at 5.00pm I moved them again and the temperature in direct sunlight was 30C.

At about 8pm I moved both plants into the shed the dirt in their pouches was nice and dry so I gave each plant 500ml of water.

I then FIM'd each plant because there will only be 2 of them in the shed they can get as big as they want to.

It was dull and cloudy when I switched on the fluorescent tubes this morning at 06.00am the temperature in the shed was about 14C.

By about 09.00am the cloud had broken up and the sun was shining, the temperature inside the shed was now 18C I moved mr moose outside into direct sunlight and left him for half an hour, when I checked the temperature again it was 20C.

So I moved both of the Sweet Valley Kush outside so they could enjoy the sunshine.

21may-2019-svk-yard-morning.jpg

Temperature in direct sunlight at about 10.30am was 22C

21may-2019-morning-temperature-22c.jpg

During the morning there was plenty of cloud so the sunshine was not all the time and the temperature averaged about 26C

I repositioned the plants at about 2pm to keep them in direct sunlight and at about 5pm I moved them again so they could soak up the last few rays before the sun is out of the line of sight having sunk low as we near sunset in our part of the world.

At 8pm I moved the plants into the shed under the fluorescent tubes as it goes dark and I will switch off the fluorescent tubes about 9.30pm.

Both plants seem to be growing OK I am pleased with the BioGrow powder nutrient so far it seems to be providing everything they require.

Happy growing...

This morning it was a lot less cloudy than yesterday when I switched on the fluorescent tubes at 06.30am this morning.

The temperature in the shed first thing this morning was about 16C

About 09.00am I moved the thermometer outside into direct sunlight and then did a couple of little jobs when I checked the temperature about 09.30am it was 30C in direct sunlight so I moved both the Sweet Valley Kush plants outside into the sunshine.

The dirt in their root pouches is drying out nicely and they seem to be really enjoying the sunshine.

It is now a week since I fed them with the BioGrow on the 14th of May and I am wondering when to give them both some of the bio enhancer, so far though they seem very happy with the BioGrow and are not showing signs of any problems.

What do you guys think?

Happy growing...

Hola amigo medidor de gas yo opino que van estupendamente la única pega que puedan tener es que tengan frío por la mañana pero si es poco tiempo no les va mal, feliz crecimiento 

 

Hello friend, gas meter, I think that they are going great, the only problem they can have is that they are cold in the morning but if it is not long they do not do bad, happy growth

Hi @R.G.S thanks for the kind words, yes if the temperature drops a lot it would be a problem, as long as it is way above 10C its all good.

Hola, @R.G.S gracias por las amables palabras, sí, si la temperatura desciende mucho, sería un problema, siempre que esté muy por encima de 10 ° C, todo está bien.

Hi @g22 yes I am going to use the enhancer as a drench rather than spraying it on the leaves.

I was worried they are a bit small but I think I will give them 1gram per litre and give them 500ml each when the dirt in their pouches is dry tomorrow night.

This morning when I switched on the fluorescent tubes it was cloudy and the temperature inside the shed was about 16C

At around 09.00am the cloud was much thinner so I put the plants outside in the yard and then I checked the temperature about an hour later and the temperature in direct sunlight was about 24C

Both plants enjoying the sunshine the yard.

Tonight the dirt in both plants pouches was nice and dry so I mixed 1g of the bio enhancer with 1ltr of water and then I gave each plant 500ml.

The enhancer is obviously well concentrated the solution was pretty dark so I will keep a close eye on both plants over the next couple of days.

The temperature in the shed this morning was about 16C when I switched on the fluorescent tubes at 6.30am

Although it was cloudy when I switched on the fluorescent tubes over the next hour it thinned out.

I put the thermomenter outside at about 8am in direct sunlight and then checked it at 8.30am and it was about 30C so I moved the plants outside.

Both plants enjoying the warm morning sunshine.

There was not much cloud this morning when I switched on the fluorescent tubes and the temperature in the shed was 16C

At 8am I put the thermometer outside in direct sunlight and checked on it half an hour later and the temperature was 23C

So I moved both the plants outside into direct sunlight.

Morning temperature about 8.30am this morning.

25may-morning-temperature-23c.jpg

I moved them around lunch time to keep them in direct sunlight, but it was starting to get more and more cloudy, and at about 2pm it started to rain lightly, so put them back in the shed under the fluorescent tubes.

They stayed in the shed for the rest of the day the quality of light from the tubes was better than the light outside.

I switched off the lights and locked up just as it started to go dark around 9.30pm.

Both plants look fine I have seen no signs of nutrient burn after giving them the enhancer, these powder feeding nutrients are easy to use.

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.
