hi folks, its been longer than i said. so here are the first pics of my very first grow.

i, like all smokers had aquired a number of bag seed over the years and had the idea of growing them out. i did no research, i had no gear so i found a plant pot in the garden and took some soil from the flower bed (had no flowers, this was a student house) and put the seeds in and watered. a few days passed and i had some baby weed plants. once the seeds had sprouted i moved it from the airing cupboard and put it under a table lamp (yes, a table lamp).

The next picture i found was when the plant was about 2 months old. it grew up on my window sill getting direct sunlight through the net curtains from around 12:00 till 6:00.

here she is next to a 2l plastic bottle for size and scale of how big she got.

she did get hairs towards the end of her life.

in the end she just withered and died, alot of ''if onlys'' goin through my mind at the time.

so when she wnt i decided to grow more and made a foil liined grow hole.

thanks for the replys guys.

those pics were 5 1/2 years old. the plant had no neutrients, just had tap water and was left to do its own thing on my window, hence why i got nothing out of it.

so here it is, my second grow. this was from 5 years ago when i was still in the student house. i had purchased a new grow kit so i was expecting to get some smoke. i bought a ds60 tent, 150w blue CFL, biobizz all mix, bio grow and bio bloom. i used boiled tap water which i would leave in an open container for 2 days to let some of the last chemicals to evaporate. thats my kit so here are the pics......

the seeds are from a friend of a friends grow of amnesia and purple shiva haze, i bought a bag of each and got some seeds in there as well.

enjoy!!!

These look much better - I think the stretchy tall one was a male ..lol

Best order some feminized seeds from Greenhouse - An Indica Mix or a Sativa/Indica Mix pack with 5 varieties to get an idea or if it is Haze or Amnesia you want you can get these, too. AMS or Damn Sour. Super silver Haze Or one of the fine Hazes creted by Arjan..Hawaiian snow et. These take long to flower, though - so i suggest the white widow 4 indoors and Himalaya gold for outdoors.

But sio far these look good BUT take care that there are no males sexing up your females and producing seeds instead of sticky buds..lol

So watch out - the males declare their sex first.. little bags filled with pollen. Take those OUT of the flowering room.

Good luck!

i didnt document this grow very well but i did take some pictures (not many). i only got a 150w blue cfl with the grow kit, by the time i could afford a red specrum it was kinda too late. the plants had gone 3wks extra in the vegatatve stage so when i switched to 12/12 they stretched loads.

here are the pics of the ladys in 1st 1/2 of flowering.....

because the plants stretched loads i had to twist and bend them to fit them in my tent. i also topped one of the purples. here are the final pics of the bud drying in my home made dry box.

so that was my first grow with a decent set up. the only notes i could find were brief, here they are:-

AMNESIA- stretched too tall, quite dense, lots of chrystals, nice earthy taste, 1.4oz dry.

PURPLE- stretched too tall, not very dense, not alot of chrystals, peppery/spicy taste, 0.8oz dry.

of course theses notes that i made were based on my grow at the time. im sure i could do it better now, got more light, feed them better, start flowering at the right time, have bigger pots etc.

congratz man a first harvest is always good no matter the result :D

About the stretch of your plant, you can mainly incriminate the CFL i think it is a wonderful light for everything concerning germination and small veg, but for flowering it will most of the time give you this kinf of grow unless youscrog them, SCROG is the easiest way to grow with CFL personally ;)

Thanks for the journal and picture man ;) Have a good smoke

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.
