Anyone had experience with any of these strains?

I've acquired a mix of various seeds.. mostly indica dominant hybrids and was looking for some advice on growing them mainly outdoors (june-mid. oct). I've been researching each of them and their ancestry to learn about their likes/dislikes but would welcome any experience or knowledge of these strains. Anyways here's the list..

California Original - KC Brains
Northern Lights - Homegrown Fantaseeds
Bubba Kush - Greenhouse
Kings Kush - Greenhouse
Blue Cheese - Barneys Farm
Star 47 - World Of Seeds
Deep Purple - TGA
Double Diesel Ryder - Sagarmatha
Thunderbud - Holy Smoke
Fruity Chronic Juice - Delicious
Connie Chung - DNA
Hash Plant Haze - DNA
Confidential Cheese - Reserva Privada
Original Amnesia - Dinafem
White Widow - Dinafem
Blue Hash - Dinafem
Pineapple Express - G13 Labs
Skunk #1 - G13 Labs
Burmese Kush - TH Seeds
SAGE - TH Seeds

Likewise, I'm really looking forward to seeing how each different strain developes and which will take a liking to the great outdoors. I'm a bit worried about some of the types that have haze in them since I doubt they'll reach full maturity by mid oct. Can anyone tell me which would generally be the quickest finishers and best suited for an outdoor soil grow?

sorry im not help in any of those departments, but seeing as how you know where each strain came from do you think you could track this info down from the seedbanks?

Yes you do need to think about the finishing times outdoors.

Depends on the genetics and the latitude you are at.
Google for a chart which will show comparison of different times for different latitudes.
Check the breeders' blurbs- usually it says on the packaging (if you have it) which month it finishes at a given latitude outdoors.
If it only lists the indoor time compare it to the others and extrapolate (there might not be a strict correlation between indoor and outdoor times but it will give an indication).
There are other reasons a quick finisher is desirable- less time for anyone to notice (rippers are a problem in some areas).

Another thing to consider- what's the weather like towards the end of the season? If it is wet or humid you might want to choose strains with good mould resistance- usually sativa strains are best for this.

Something called Skunk #1 should finish ok by mid oct unless you're too far north.
Anything with ryder in the name is probably an auto.
Anything with haze in the name might be tricky outdoors unless you have the climate like you say.

However everything you have except the Northern Lights is a indica/sativa hybrid or polyhybrid, so some variance as to finishing time might be expected with some of them.

The season is well under way this year..

Thanks fg, I'll have to keep all of that in mind.

As a note..

From what I've read on other forums and on other sites, it seems that some people out there have have bad experiences with KC Brains. This being my first experience with them (i.e. bad or no germination), I acquired a 10 pack of reg. Cali Original's and got a 10/10 germination rate with all 10 looking healthy so far. Keep ya posted on how they fare down the road..

KC Brains sell some very good seeds for not much money if you choose the right strain.

Their germ rates are ok normally ime...

Their prices do seem very reasonable. That's what caught my eye initially. I've heard good things about the Mango, Afghani.. i think it was a double cross, and the K-30something

The success of these strains will depend on a lot of factors. Perhaps most importantly your location.

Secondly the kind of summer (there are good growing summers and bad growing summers. - ask any farmer.

Then there's the age of the seeds. Yes I know that seeds stored in the Egyptian pyramids have still been fertile some 2,000 years on, but in my exerience, cannabis seeds decline in fertility after 1 year.

The only way your really going to find out how well these strains ae for your location is to grow them. Keep tabs on what's what and by harvest time you should have a clear idea on what's best suited to your location. The you can tell us wht works best for you.

Good luck.

For some reason the some of the beans have had problems after initially cracking open during germ. The taproot would emerge so I lightly covered them with moist moisture control potting soil mixed with vermiculite. After a week and a half nothing had popped out of the ground so I uncovered the seed and it looks as if the taproot just stopped growing. They still look nice and white and don't look unhealthy beside the fact they won't grow. I'm not sure what could be causing this? I had them sitting by the window sill. It has been dark and quite cool (60's/50's). Could it be the temp be causing their non-germination?

I grew the Burmese Kush from TH Seeds last year. I got huge a yield. I let it get as bushy as it wanted.

Its mostly indica but it doesn't feel like it.

That is def one I am looking forward to. Did you do her indoors or out? Wondering about the yield and finishing time?

I was indoor. I didn't have the means to accurately weight the amount I had but 5 plants lasted me like 5 months, and I'm a heavy smoker.

The package said around 55 days for flowering, but mine were ready at like 48 days. (I couldn't harvest for a couple days, so I don't know how much that affected it, either way is was really good weed)

Very nice, from the pics I've seen the buds look quite tasty. Idk if you've tried any other kush varieties? I was wondering how the Burmese stacked up to them.....

I was looking to do some topping on the cali original but wanted to see if this strain would do well with this technique before chopping away.

I've never grown it but Blue cheese is a really really tasty smoke and the fact that its almost pure indica should means it has a pretty short flowering time
