Thanks hunters for your support, however they are not with us any more, pics to follow.

Im going to soak another 2 the same as before, as advised i will place them in coco (rockwool starter cubes 1st time)

straight into their life time pot, in which they can finish the germination (the dude at the shop -----420)

Im going to try a new air pot (well new to me) which is supposed to give maximum root production

If i may continue with this entry in this way please let me know as i would like to do another entry with another strain

after my exodus have finished

I think rockwool is not suited for this strain. Sadly my first 4 grown in rockwool all withered away, too. only the one I planted in soil/coco/pebbles survived. They are also very sensitive vs too much light - 12 12 will do if temps are high enough.

Good luck with the second try.

Thanks for the info Bam-Bhole temps are a big problem here, it cost a fortune to keep high temps at lights off, i think my others suffer because of fluctations in temps.

So maybe i should of waited, 12/12 dont seem such a good idea any more, if i fail this time il wait till tent is free.

Hi hunters just a quick update

After 18 hrs seeds were put into wet tissue paper, then put into pots when cracked.

3 out of the 4 cracked on 22nd (mon) the last 1 still not cracked on the 24th (wed) to help it along i give it a little scrape

with sandpaper down the edge place it back into the tissue paper and 24hrs later its cracked and potted.

On the 24th 2 popped there head thru, the other said hello today

No food given as yet just tap water with an ec .68 ph 5.7

photos 1, 2 after sandpaper scrape and then when it cracked, the rest dated and numbered

come on babies dont let me down

LIGHTS AT THE MOMENT JUST A FEW HOUSE HOLD CFLs

SEE YOU AT NEXT UP DATE AT THE WEEKEND IN THE TENT

PEACE

Hi hunters,

Here we about 3 weeks in on the sweet mango autos

At the start they had low light and cooler temperatures

They have now been in a stable enviroment for a week and started to settle in

To keep humidity up we have only the input fan running and top vents open, RH- 60% days on 75% night

Days are 16hrs long under 400 watt MH bulb

Temperature constantly 24-25 c

Spraying carbonated water few times a day,

Watering when needed using GHSC short flowering powder EC- 1, PH- 5.8, TEMP- 22 c

Hopefully now they will grow fast and strong, see you all in a few days

THANKS FOR LOOKING IN

PEACE HUNTERS ENJOY THE PICTURES

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.
