Day 30:

Hey Guys & Girls, quick update and some more pics.

I'm amazed at the growth rate of these they were 6-9" tall 10 days ago and they are now between 17 and 21", quite phenominal, I'm having to up the lights every other day by about 2".

They are all looking very healthy green and no signs of any deficiencies or bugs, let's hope it stays that way.

That's it,

Toaor

Day 34:

Hi Guys & Girls, time for another update.

Well I'm still amazed at the growth rate on these girls growing fast every day.

I measured them on Saturday and the tallest was 21.5", today she is 26.5", that's a massive five inches in three days Sat/Sun/Mon, as lights have only just come on today.

Buds are forming nicely all over the plants and starting to get a slight hashy smell when I open up the tent eachmorning but it's not leaking out as yet. Looking at them I don't think they are going to be ready in the six weeks quoted by GHSC but I'm not absolutely sure their quote is referring to whole cycle or just flowering time once they start.

I harvested the other three plants in greenhouse too, as they were all starting to get patches of mould so thought better to have them rather than leave with the weather turning more damp, the crop is drying at the back of my corner wardrobe so my clothes are going to smell very lemony, lol

Here's some pics you can see how tall they are getting, I might have to start bending the tops of a few plants as only got about 25cms left to raise the lights. There also a shot of the only three leaf clone to survive, White Rhino x Skunk#1

Best wishes one and all,

Toaor

I look forward to eating my socks, lol

Just given them another feed and upped it a bit again so pH 6.2, EC 1.86, so far they haven't reacted each time I've slightly upped it so hopefully they'll carry on liking it.

Day 35:

Hey Guys & Girls,

Well they haven't reacted overnight to the higher nutes feed I gave them yesterday so all is good, still growing taller when they'll stop who knows, hope they do soon though and then just fill with buds.

Today's psychedelic pics, love the colours with both LEd panels and CFLs turned on.

Best wishes one and all,

Toaor

Hey Tokage, you're right it cannot be seen even if you open the cupboard, you can hear lights and fan if they're on once door is open but otherwise there is very little noise, I always have the news running on my PC so there is sound to cover it and I have an air purifier, which also cover the noise.

No one has noticed it yet and I've been growing like this all year.

All the best.

Toaor

PS: Will take som eppics later today and post another update

Day 42:

Hi Guys & Girls, ok so not many girls here I know, lol

I've gradually been upping the nutes so they're on heavy feeding now up at 1.9 EC, pH 6.2

There's a slight speckling on brown spots on just a couple of leaves but nothing major and they're still growing like mad, the tallest one as you'll see in pics is now bent over, as she was just getting way taller thanthe others, which meant light was high for her but the others weren't so close.

My temperatures and humidity are all fine between 24-28c with humidity average around 50-60%, the gauge does show upto 95% but that is only for short periods when lights go off for 6 hours, obviously trapped heat works on moisture levels.

Here's today's LSD flashback pics, lol

Quick update:

Boo hoo hoo, I broke my tallest plant !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was spraying the Rhizotonic and knocked the CO2 bottle that it was wired to, it fell over and just snapped main branch, so now I have turned the wire up and attached to top pole so as it can't droop with any weight and it should be fine.

Lovely looking set up there Toaor, get a lollypop splint on that breakage !

Just out of interest how much electric does that set up use or more importantly how much does it cost a week to run ?

Guys, I have absolutely no idea how much it costs me to run presumably 2 x 120 watts = 240 watts x 12 hrs per day plus 2 x 21 watt CFLsthat come on for 6hrs per day.

Have no idea how much electric is per unit but I haven't noticed much change in my bills at all, I will try to find some old one's from last year before I started growing with lights to compare.

If you can find out what electricity costs per unit in UK you can work it out.

Have a great weekend guys,

Toaor

Day 47:

Hello Peeps,

Well they're still jogging on growing and fattening up now they've eventually stopped growing up, just as well the tallest plant is at the very height limit of my LED panel !!!

There's a few golden/brown spots on two plants fan leaves, what's that a sign of guys?

That 's about it as far as an update as there ain't much happening they'rew in the last 2/3wks of finishing.

Enjoy the psychedelic pics.

Hey Dust,

Do you mean spray them when you say vaporize?

If so, yes with Canna Rhizotonic upto 6 times a day but I stop last couple of weeks of flowering so will be stopping this week to let them finish hopefully end of next week or week after.

Started 9 more seeds on overnight soak Sunday so as soon as these are finished in go the newbies, 3 x Ice Dream, 3 x Big Bang Autos, 2 x White Rhino x Skunk#1 (DFWI) and 1 x White Widow.

Best regards,

Toaor

The plants are looking pretty amazing. The Big Bang auto strain looks like the normal Big Bang, just the buds seems to be a little bit other. Has bigger calyxes. They look like the ones from Trainwreck. Thank you for the pics, thats a true nice Bud Porn :D.

The spraying 6 times a day is as per the Canna Rhizotonic instructions.

Although they look quite big cloas in pictures they're not, I'll take some pics with a lighter as a reference so you can see actual size, looking at them I doubt if I will get an ounce per plant more like half but we'll see, I'm just about to open up tent and get them out for a closer look under microscrope to see how well developed resin trichomes are, then I'll be able to tell if they've got much time to go, in which case they may really fatten up in last week or so.

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.
