I forgot they'll be going in the basement where there is a night temp. of about 16 degrees C in the night! Is that a problem? They will be under 18 hours a day on, and 6 off untill the last two weeks, i will turn the cycle down gradually and they wont be fertilized but just watered!

Is it be a good idea to let the plants suffer from light stress in the last couple of days? less or no lights at all?

Not sure what to suggest about the strain to use, it depends really what you like and how much time/space etc you have. Regarding the temperature I think that 16C is a bit low during night, I always try to not make it fall below 20C, but I know quite a bit of growers that don't consider this factor and make good growth still. Remember that if you try to flower them giving them 18 hours a day, they'll never flower :cool: Also, regarding the fact of not giving light the last two days, I read different forum posts and articles that claim it helps to increase the production of trichomes in the plant giving it an overall stronger effect (this is with no lights at all). I personally never tried, so I can't tell you for sure that this works, but it's surely something I'd be interested in discovering (going to do this with my actual grow).

Have a good grow.

if you plan on staying with 18 hrs light and 6 dark right through then an autoflower would be better for you in my oppinion,why just 18/6 why no 12/12 just curious thats all

As they said you need either autoflowering strain for your tactic or you need to use 12/12 for last 8-14 weeks depending on strain choice.

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.
