Strain Guide

The only thing we are missing here is a strain guide.

I thought it would be nice if we all wrote down certain strains that we have grown, along with their characteristics. This way we can all benefit from it. Lets say for example , you wanna grow a stony indica. By having the strain guide, it will help you decide which strain is more appropriate for you.

I ll start with :

sacra frasca (powerplant x skunk passion)

100% Sativa.

Flowering : around 2 1/2 months

Harvest (outdoors) : mid Oct.

Height: 100cm to 170cm (stretchy)

General comments : Good medicinal strain (especially for back pains). It can be heady if abused, but overall it has a smooth (slow rising) celebral buzz of high quality that lasts for hours.

Sweet smelling buds, hairy and quite large (ft long). Soft smoke. Fairly easy to grow.

thanks Pit,

i think its a good idea, because this way you can have first hand info on a certain strain (most seed banks dont go into detail about their strains).
Hope it becomes a usefull sticky

there was one site i use to visit, it had all of the amsterdam strains. it was very in-depth, but that was the problem, they were amsterdam strains. i always get awesome strains in aus, but i doubt i'd be able to get alot of stuff that you guys get. the best i've had so far is most probably white widow.

me thinks thats a wee bit slack for a growing forum.....
no contribution other than glorified speaches.

This forum has a real lack of input from senior members, i for one want to learn growing styles and techniques and learn by your 20yrs growing skills(?)
not read your political views, i can do that elsewhere on these boards


GROWING the GOOD HERB is what were about here.........

growing, not fucked up thoughts of a stoner.

so Kosh the ball is in your court and as you have never replied to my PM's this is how it is....sorry

there i said it.......... Change the record or please try harder...

I think no more than a 20 word reply would have sufficed,
“my life isn’t long enough to spend half of each day reading your replies”, keep it short or keep it shut….
my point is your current lack of contribution, this forum could be so much more if guys such as yourself were more involved, course i understand you have other commitments, but you either moderate or not.
This forum has so much going for it compared to others as you so rightly said, but it all goes to waste.......noobs come here then go again.

I think we need new blood on this forum....sorry Kosh but youve gone stale, time to hand over the reigns.
I know you are much loved at Yahooka…….but......w ell.

I will reply to your equally long private messages, privately.

Phat

Kosh, ive had a question up for a day or two now, no mods, not anyone has replied.

here is where i am unsure what to do.....??

1. trim lower branches off allowing more of the plants energy to produce buds
or
2. keep them on and harvest in two stages
Is there really much difference in yield between the two methods ??


Now if i was a complete noob id go elsewhere and get my answer, therefore making this forum less interesting.
Lets get this Growfaq sorted proper, quickly, were losing members..PHACT
This is my point...

i agree that yahooka is more basic knowledge and community focused, so i don't think developing a formal Strainguide is worth the effort as there are a cpl other websites/books/med mj sources that have that underway (and any real grower knows where those are so i'm not gonna hype them here).

and kosh is right- strains w/ same names vary widely from grower to grower, seed harvest to seed harvest, esp w/ so many non F1's out there by hack breeders these days. although my experience is that if you grow enuff of those you'll find a good mom to clone from. i'm not a breeder, so that's a whole other dealio regarding hack factor offerings...hey it would great if someone could produce the equivalent of a DNA fingerprint to map cannabis strains to really know what strains are really related to what.


hey, if anyone wants information, pix or any advice on organic grows for the following strains, drop me a PM and i'll do my best to give advice as I was growing these out for the past several years:

BOG (Bushy Older Grower from seedsdirect):
Bogglegum
Lifesaver

Spice of Life (Breeder Steve available from a few sources):
Sweet Tooth #3
Sweet Tooth #4
Adventure Mix

Sensi Seeds:
Hawaiian Indica
4-way

THC Seeds:
Heavy Duty Fruity

Nirvana Seeds:
Skunk #1
B-52

ps- i just moved to the opposite end of the planet and am no longer growing (at present), so pls don't ask for a nug or clone hookup. sorry.

peace,
kudzu

phat, was your question its own thread or was it buried in an existing thread..??

I sometimes feel stuff I post is ignored, then I remember my own tendencies to skim read other peoples long posts.

For instance I apologize kosh, if you have have already made this point because I tend to skim through your rather weighty tomes.

I think most of us probably suffer from short attention spans so I agree that a readers digest version is preferable to an extended version.

phat, I prefer the "least invasive" form of growing, so I avoid doing any cutting (except for clones). Which is why I really like following your LST grow. You are the expert here. We are not worthy of an opinion. Perhaps you could try it on one plant and compare subsequent stress effects etc.

Say kudzu420 I guess you're in Wellington, anytime you're near Auckland PM me.

i agree with the least invasive method.

My uncut plant gave me 50% more yeild and more potent buds. Plus it finished earlier.

(by mistake though i had prunned 1 week before natural flowering. thats probably why the other plants kinda "slowed down")

That's the best idea I've seen recently on seeds. Makes me hopeful that the crap I've been smoking was old chronic that went bad and the seeds I plant will turn out better the 2nd time around.

I've only been on this seed search for like the past 24 hours, and have found sites that have been updated recently. I'm not in the seed business, so I'm not gonna post lnks.

Some of the deals I've seen are 30 seeds for the price of ten for a few cup winners. One site was 10 free seeds with any order, etc. etc.

Anyways, you have a best idea for starters who want to find good weed and seeds.

Thanks for the dirvel and stuff. I read often.

Have a great day!

I thought the post had some good advice.

I went through my bucket of seeds looking for the best seeds, and sorted them, about 3000 seeds or so, into a few groups. Big, Medium and Small. I took out all the green peas and immautre seeds.

Some of the seeds have dark stripes, others have light stripes, and even more do not have not prominate markings. I may be planting some of each later, but I was wondering if you have some criteria for choosing which seeds you might plant.

Have a great day!
