Ice Dream

44 posts in this topic

Planting many dreams lately.

This morning I received a packet of ten Ice Dream courtesy of Green House Seeds. I would like to thank Fuzzy, Franco and Arjan for giving me this opportunity.

Germination:

I´ve placed five seeds in damp cloth in between two plates. Current room temperature is around 24ºC so i´m not placing any means of heat to the germination plates. (in winter I put them on the router to keep them warm.)

Once germinated they will be placed in Jiffys and set outdoors on my top balcony away from pests and other plants.

Vegetive growth:

When the first pair of leaves are fully developed (not the cotiledons) they will be transplanted to 20 litre pots.

These plants are going to do a natural cycle, they wont be forced to flower during the summer. They will be harvested by late september early october.

The first month of vegetive growth will be outdoors after that they will be placed in a greenhouse. When placed into the greenhouse (1st of august) they will be transplanted to 60 litre pots.

Soil and Nuts:

They will be grown in Canna all mix proffesional soil. About 50 adult worms will be added to each 20 litre pot, and another 50 to the 60 litre pots. You can order worms online and grow them yourself (compost) http://www.lombriventa.com/contra/tarrina.php I bought them here. They eat all the dead roots leaving room for new ones.

I´ll start fertilizing them after the firs two-three weeks, with Biogrow (Biobizz). I will also water the leaves once a week to remove dust and particles, it doesn´t rain here. If needed do to white fly I will use potassium soap on the leaves.

I´m growing in mediterranean weather: Long hot, no rain, humid summers, and stormy autumn.

Sorry I cant grow all ten seeds. I wasn´t expecting this gift so I went ahead and planted other stuff like tomatoes, strawberrys, corn, peppers.... And my grilfriend wont let me get rid of those plants LOL.

Hope you guys enjoy the post, it will last till october.

Thanks to everyone in this community. you make growing a lot funner when you can share it with friends.

Many pests: Don´t know their name in english, the translation would be:

red spider: Tetranychus urticae Not actually a spider but a small red mite. eats leaves and buds and makes like spiders webs around buds.

White fly: not a fly, hemiptera. Aleyrodidae. also eats leaves but usually stays off buds.

And all sorts of Butterflies/moths that lay their eggs on the plant, speciall care with: SPODOPTERA EXIGUA a few (20 or so) caterpillers will eat ONLY and all the buds of a plant in three days!

No way to get rid of them. Controll the population with:

Yellow stickers (catches flying bugs)

Potassium soap

Catching spiders/ladybugs/wasp and put them in the greenhouse.

BY HAND!

Its not all good in places with warm weather, you also have more pests. Good thing, around my house many Orange/tangerine/lemon trees. Most pests that attack weed also attack citrus trees, and they preffer the trees over the plants. At least in my side of the world.

Three of the five seeds have opened up and two have enough root to place them in the jiffys. Its been about 36 hours since they were put to germinate.

This morning I received Francos nutrients so I´ve decided to do a little test. I´ll use Biobizz products on two of the Ice Dream and Franco´s Nuts on the other two. Hoping that at least one more seed will germinate. If not ill try and germinate another seed to keep the test more or less equal.

The four little wonders. I have them in 11 litre pots, I ran out of the bigger pots. Will be transplanting them today. They seem to be growing quite quickly. They receive 10 hours of direct sunlight daily.

Only water for now, no nutrients.

They will do a natural cycle. I will put them in the greenhouse the first of august. They will grow outdoors untill then. They should be done by the last week of september but since they were planted late i dont think they will began to flower untill mid august.

32 Days since germination. They are growing very fast. They have suffered a couple of storms and a few "cold" (14ºC-20ºC) days. Still haven´t transplanted them. Probably will do it this week.

These Ice Dream are very fast strong plants. They are now flowering like crazy. Im feeding them twice a week with Bio Bizz (bio grow and bio bloom) and watering everyday. (Two in the front)

The two in the back are being fed with GHSC nuts once a weak and also watered every day.

All plants are receiving Delta 9 (cannabiogen) every ten days at 5mL/L.

Cant see any differences between the plants yet.

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.
