White Strawberry Skunk, in coco

22 posts in this topic

Hi hunters

On my last visit to the grow shop i picked up my supplies and stayed a bit for a chat, well the chat soon

steered to the new beans from strain hunters and i was hooked, if i had enough money on me i would

of got Flower Bomb Kush, however i did buy the White Strawberry Skunk, i will come back for you FBK

i promise.

So as soon as i got home started to ph some water for them (wasting no time), only put 3 in the water

PH-6 left there for 12 hours.

Soaked jiffy blocks in water PH-5.7 and sowed the seed, this is the morning of the 12th september

they were born on 13th then 14th and the last 15th which made me very happy, nice fast germination.

Just before i upload some little pics i would like to thank Strain Hunters Seed Bank for the new genetics

we now have, and next to the reputable UK supplier where i purchase my seed and powder feed from

CHEERS DUDE :king:

PEACE BROS

Hey man. You mentioned that you have to feed them everyday. Is that just what has to happen with coco or do you give them small doses on a daily basis??? I sprouted a bean in some coir that will be outdoors.

Hi hunters

Thanks for the comments,

laocoo, i cant wait for the smoke report either but we will get there

Dust, yes bro they still here and im trying to keep them in good health

Stinky Pete, i think it was because of the small pots they were in and drying out to quick

After the repot i did a bit of measuring 1 of the WSS has a maxium of 3cm internode spacings down

to 1 cm, the other 2, have maxium of 5 and 6 cm down to about 1.5-2 cm would like a comment on this

as not sure if good or not.

As they are going to veg for a bit longer than i normally would im not jumping up pot sizes to quick

Thats it apart from the photos, next time i give you a peak into my veg tent and the flower tent, as

they are about to be spilt into 2 different groups

Thanks for looking in

PEACE

Hi hunters

Now after 12 days more growth the WSS are looking nice, one not sure wrong with her

The conditions have changed slightly because i have a veg tent running now and for the first

week it ran a bit cooler that the other and now has been tweeked so it runs almost the same

but with a bit higher humidity which is good

Temp 24c RH-65-68

Feeding 0.5g/l hybrid GHSC powder feeding PH-5.7

1 of the WSS has claw like leaves and could do with suggestions to help.

The other 2 plants are going to be topped, however to be honest i try to FIM them but it does not

work, at the moment 3 tops is the most ive had what is suppose to happen?

Thanks for dropping in see ya soon

PEACE HUNTERS

Ahoya SlimJim

I'm no expert and I am still learning my way around defficiancies and problems.

If I had to guess I would say that its either over watering or over feeding. But please don't take my word for it.

My coco experiment is coming along nicely. My 2nd set of leafs are forming and I'm hoping for some good "porn". LoL

Hi hunters

Since my last post in this thread i decided not to update because of lack of care that has been given to

these girls, and had a lack of branching (dont know what i done) and had bit of root rot so i repotted

and just flowered to see what happened.

They been in 12/12 for 5 or 6 weeks (i cant remember), one i pulled open the top to make canopy wider,

she is the best smelling pheno really does smell like strawberry chews or candy, the other the buds are so

close and getting big im scared it will get bud rot later her smell is not like the other but still very sweet.

As yet no male flowers  so after the stress they been under this strain is slimjim proof (stable).

Here is 2 pics of wss as they are now and closer to  harvest i will do some more unless i get big change

with them and then sooner

PEACE HUNTER

You've gone through some trials, but have some nice buds now. ;)

Root rot not nice :(  Try to let there be a wet/dry cycle - letting the soil dry out before next water, this allows air to the root and avoids root rot.

Adding some  perlite to your soil mix, which will make the soil more airy.

Watering at the start of the light cycle allowing more time for the plant to take up water, watering at lights out will just leave the plant siiting in wet and colder soil.

Make sure to have adequate air flow in your tent to help avoid bud rot, use a oscillating fan to move air around, keep humidity at around 40 RH

Have a good end of grow and be sure to let us have a smoke report too :D

Hi hunters

So here we are at 7 or 8 weeks, cant be precise.

The pistels are turning nicely which made stick scope on them

and to my surprise my timing may be out or i have an early pheno,

the other is a bit behind and that is now called 2 but is the sweeter one.

Dont think it will be long before i flush plant 1, see what you think?

Here are 3 photos and macros taken today (sry about lots of macros)

Thanks for looking hunters

PEACE

WOW! Thanks slimjim,

This thread is exactly what I've been looking for! I actually asked you a question on another thread as I noticed you speaking about it! Would love to know more about WSS, I've got a few pheno's with the hooking leaves, that seem to be growing quite vigorous, in terms of developing side branches, one short indica type one and a few that are different to the rest. Which of yours would you say were closest to the description of WSS, or showed traits that you felt were worthy keeping as a pheno? I also had the thing with leaves bending sideways, but it seems to be fading out as time goes. 

Mine are 4 weeks today, with 6 to 7 nodes each.

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.
