The kalash should be cut within this week, or beginning of next, i'm out of stash ^^ And she looks ready so.. ^^

I started final Flush of Ice Dream#3, remember it was the most indica, she already has her leaves starting to turn yelllow and little red purple, so she'll have another 2 week of hardwater and cut too, The Moby is on the final Flush too, for the rests of the lady they will have 1 or 2 weeks of feeding again, and depending on the stage i'll see if i rince them :)

Anyway i keep you updated guys ;)

The girls are all doing very good, Ice Dream #3 will be soon cutted i think, maybe another week and i'll see ;)

Ice Dream#1 that was little slow started to get fatter, she will be 3 week longer i think to be nicely done, exodus too and vanilla are about at same stage. Besides this ones, Moby, ID#2, ID#3 ID#4, and kalash should be very soon ready and have been getting only hardwater for mini 1 week, a little more for a few :)

not much more to say pictures are worth a million words ;)

Enjoy,

Ice Dream #2

The Exodus Cheese, starting to have a very pungeant smell, don't know if that will be the cheese pheno, maybe i'll see when she'll get bigger, whe'll get only hard water too, she is not a big eater and can wait before next feeding.

And a little group photo ;)

post-4970-0-58513100-1331403340_thumb.jp

And quickly a little observation i made on the Ice dream, They once in flowering, turn back their leaves to 3 bladed leaves, i have already seen this on several strains, i remember someone here had a clone with 3 bladed leaves, think it was on the Rhino Skunk crosses.

That's it lol just a little notification that could help recognizing the girls if seeds mixed up. Actually in my grow room it is the only one with 3 bladed leaves, so it works for me at least lol ;)

That's it for today guys, i keep you updated

About the 48 hours of darkness, could anyone explain me the logic behind that move? Is it that you pretty much send the info to the plant that she's gonna die so she gives all she has into the bud, "last effort" kind of thing?

Hi Guys Today is DAY 87

The T° is 25° for a 40% HR during the day

post-4970-0-69064100-1332083328_thumb.pn

Girls are doing very good, Ice Dream #3 has been cutted on DAY 82 i think after 48h hours of dark, i didn't notice more resin or trichomes after the dark than before the dark ^^ i'll see how taste is but anyway it would have been good ;)

Today The Moby Dick and The kalshnikova have been put in the dark too, they will be cutted Tomorrow night too, i microscoped them today and they had ambers going on so cutted.

I've also taken away the biggest leaves on the remaining plants, to focus on finishing properly hose buds ;)

That leaves in the room, The Vanilla Kush, Exodus Cheese and Ice Dream#1 that are late compare to the others and still forming their flowers, they grew little bigger than others, and think they will run out of space for their roots pretty soon, i'll see ^^

Ice Dream #2 and #4 are on the good way, they will stay another week or 2 perhaps to finish maturing, yet no amber trichome on them.

I already Smoked a Few joints of the Ice Dream#3 quickly dried cause i'm out of weed, and damn it's a head knocker, really makes me high in the head, i like it i'll see how the others are if they are so strong too.

Anyway Here a Few Pic of the girls:

Ice Dream #3 with her biggest leaves off ready to go hang in closet.

And the exodus that has some burned leaf problem but she is the one with the less soil in her pot so i guess it comes from there

Any difference betwwen the two batch off plants? Sorry to bust your balls witht hat but i'm facin gthe 24 or 48h dilemma ;)

Peace!

nop, been doing some search on the web about it, people mainly seem to say that if you do it let it sit 48h physical changes don't have time to happen in 24h but will start in 48h, i have also had a report from a colleague that has been growing for 40 years, he said he was leaving his plant almost 1 week before harvesting ( I absolutely don't know if it's usefull or not )

About the dark period they seem to say mainly it should increase the size of resin glands, and so shine more at the light (that might have happened on the ice dream #3) and so have a little higher TCH peak, and in mean time as it is in the dark that the THC peak is higher anyway, because it degrades itself all day long because of the light, so that's why some cut before light turns off, higher THC, nutes in the roots, or less in the leaves at least, so better taste better high?

All this is what i've read most of the time on the various site i've been on, don't know if everything is valuable ;)

That the thing seems like the growing knowledge is based on a little bet of hard science and a lot of stoner talk lol

I havent seen significant difference betweeen the two for myself, i try to cut the plant as quick as possible when i pull her out off her dark box for the reason you gave but as you said i dont know if any of htose things have any scientifical values...

Science or belief that's the question lol , thanks for the quick answer anyway.

Peace!

Hi Guys a quick little update to show you few pics of the 2 girls that have been cutted, The kalash and the mody.

I also weighted the Ice Dream#3 harvested a week ago, it yeilded 32g in 82 DAYS from Seed to Harvest.

Now here are few pics of the girls that are now hanging in closet ;)

The kalash, She is amazing when you see her, full of bud, it is almost 100% bud lol, that is the perfect one bud i would even say lol, i can't even move the lower buds cause they are too big and strong it won't move, the smell is amzingly fresh, with a pine tree resin note.

I think she will do something like 15 20g as she is still a very small plant eve if the perfect one bud ^^ The scale will tell us more when time will come :)

Little flux but you can see my hand opened behind to see the size more or less, think it's the size of a fist probably.

post-4970-0-44410800-1332336673_thumb.jp

I love the way bud and calix extended by the end of the grow, it makes really nice looking buds ;)

post-4970-0-29716800-1332336661_thumb.jp

And The Moby Dick, An amazing smell, couldn't describe it it's the moby dick smell the one i loved last time i grew her, kind of simila to GWS in smell..but different :D

The main colas is Very nice Compact as rock very dense too, even nuggets seem to be really compact, and the trichomes productions maaaan i'm gonna have some finger hash :) Can't wait to smoke it once again :D

Today is DAY 91

The T° is 25 26° for a 45% HR

post-4970-0-10835700-1332530066_thumb.pn

I weighted The Kalashnikova that dried quicker as it is smaller and only one bud, she is now in the carton box with holes, with paper towel in it. So the Final Weight of the Kalash one bud iiiisssss 26g :rabbi:

I'm pretty glad of the result of such a little plant :D i smoked a little joint but she doesn't have her taste yet, after the carton box period she should be finer ;)

so with the 2 girls yet i'm at 58g, Moby should be ready to be weighted in 2 or 3 days i think, she should have done something like 25 30g too i think.

About the resting girls. Ice Dream #2 and 4 are almost ready to harvest probably one before the other cause she look more ready.

The Vanilla kush, the Ice Dream #1 and Exodus cheese have had one last feeding at 1,2 Ph 6,5, they will now be flushed and in 2 weeks they should be ready.

Here are a few pics of the room with plants in it, i'll put some better pictures of the girls in few days :you:

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.
