Redmund, I'm exploring landrace variaties...

At the moment I'm gong down too different avenues.....one with NepJam and the other has China Yunnan in there (both crossed with Guatemalan) . Both those strains touch on pain, but trying to get that type of discomfort relieved, plus anti-inflammatory, plus the emotional lift and all other concerns, I know this will be years of work. 

 

AT, what your saying about daytime activity and pain management versus needing something to keep sleep restful is that crucial thing I want to get too...daytime functionality and evening peace . I've two lines going now and each one I'll tailor for day and night...so there will be 4 different crosses eventually. 

 

What you said does help...especially hearing what strains are working for you. 

 

I've never heard of Herijuana before. She sounds like a really interesting plant. An IBL. 

I really appreciate the offer of seeds...

I don't remember seeing anything, anywhere about her flowers turning white...although I was sure she was going to have pink flowers.

The cutting I have from her is doing well and is going to be used for breeding. It would be freakish, if in her seeds there was some all white flowers...

you called it totally...those white flowers do you look bleached.

A video of a Guatemalan x China Y female being pollinated gently by a male of the same cross.

I gave them over a week together. 

For anyone, who doesn't watch the video (forgot to put a description  on it). I was explaining in the slowest possible way, that I'm letting the male and female spend about a week together as apart of their breeding. 

I didn't want to put pollen on a female , but instead give both plants time to become aware of each other and start to respond.....

Does the method of conception for cannabis matter? 

Maybe in some way to the plants it does...

Epigenetics and all that..

In a natural setting they would have time..

So I literally gave the plants a courtship time before pollination. They had their own tent and sat next to each other for about 10 days. 

 

I see it that the plants communicate with us and each other and their environment. Not exactly like triffids, but they do send of different scents....

 

I will get an update up here soon on the plants..I've NepJam, China Yunnan, and Guat' x Nepjam in flower. Still not running a full run of the same strain at the same time and staggering my flowering plants.

I did another video. 

This one shows my soil in the a 4th cycle no-til pot and one on its first cycle. Also, shows three China Yunnan sisters and the plant I adore, NepJam. 

Also, the Bubblegum pheno of 'Bluejam' living the life in her no-til and the only living cutting of the humongous China Yunnan strain. 

 

I'm learning video editing and getting a youtube channel up and running....all things I never would have dreamed of doing 4 mths ago :-)

Plant sex pheromones.
Abstract

Although plant pheromones have been much less studied than animal pheromones, they are involved in a wide variety of processes in the life cycle of many plants, particularly in sexual reproduction. In this review, the current knowledge concerning sex pheromones in plants is described with emphasis on their structures and functions.

“It’s a very significant discovery that plants can perceive chemical signals from an animal – our work provides some of the first evidence for this,” said BTI professor Daniel Klessig. “This discovery also has great potential for protecting plants against pathogens and pests in an environmentally friendly manner.”
 
Not editing that stuff down :-) interesting the technical support for a very different methods of agricultural practices are easy to find. 
 
In this video I talk about getting to know your plants via scent and intuition and choosing the type of relationship you are going to have with the plant.

I spray the top of the soil, sometimes daily, sometimes every other week. It is totally dependent on the pot. I do very little to control the temp', so with our daily fluctuations I respond, with more or less.

At the end of a hot day, I sometimes like to mist down the whole tent and give them that hot, late afternoon, semi-tropical like passing shower.

Sometimes I pour the water by using a QT glass jar as a scoop, it makes the process a little more attentive.

Sometimes it's the watering can :-) 

 

The top few inches are the worms playground with leaf debris and other things like oat grass straw, anything green cut down from any plant.  On my newer pots that worm playground is about 4-5 inches deep, on the older pots about 2-3 inches because the soil is bound with roots. 

When I water I'm concerned for the soil and worms...a plant that wilts will bounce back within hours so no big deal. But, if the top layer of soil dried out, that takes weeks to rebuild and get smelling right again. 

 

I do have a lot of regular plants growing outside that provide me with an ongoing assortment of green biomass. I also, mix into the top soil varying seeds/grasses/legumes (so helpful), and I'm happy if they grow no bigger than a sprout before I roll them back into the soil..

I haven't top dressed with anything for months, so the worms haven't had any sudden rich additions. 

The green biomass is really useful, as are having things growing and being cut back regularly. I keep the soil covered with something in all my pots..even the 1 gallon pots have a layer of lava rock. 

I also, like having extra lava rock in the top layer of soil too.

Placing a bunch of green biomass in a corner then covering it with stones, is like a worm paradise hotel. 

I actually need to get some large flat pebbles/slate in the pots for the worms to have that near surface moist underside of a stone place.

Nothing complicated, fresh air pulled from outside with a 4inch ventech fan and controller that is usually between mid-high. Exhaust goes outside via another 4inch ventech and controller. I have a table fan on the floor of the tent. I really prefer the fan to blow across the pots rather than across the plants. 

The advice I got on here from day one, was 4inch intake and exhaust, plus controllers and carbon filter, then an oscillating fan. I've never needed to change that...I  have shifted my light cycle so the plants are sleeping during the hottest part of the day, but it's still cool in the tent, and the extra 6 or so degrees the 600W Led light throughs off, nicely offsets the late night early morning chill. 

I also, expect the plants to deal with swings off 30 or so degrees .80 degree day and 50 degree night isn't that extreme for plants above 2000ft+ , so I need everything to adapt to that type of low altitude mountain side type place and this is one way to harden them, that is to do with me and where I want to ideally live ,between 2000ft - 4000ft, south facing side of a mountain etc, etc,etc Thomas KinKade, Jack London..... However, temp swings above 20 degrees are supposed to increase inter nodal stretching so I wouldn't suggest other people do the same...I've used an thermostat based fan controller and it worked really, really well/ It would spool up gradually and be very stealth in operation...but, I'd rather it get hot, I'd rather it get cold and they have an absolute constant supply of fresh air being exchanged. The thermostat variable fan speed fuzzy logic controller only worked on Temp and not 'breathability' and so it didn't work in that way. 

 

Also, I went to the Human Collective yesterday. Great service like before, courteous staff. The regular selection of hydroponic non-organic  growers, and they had sold out of the organic med's when I was there. 

 

Without being critical of that dispensary, I hope more of us find a way to start growing for ourselves. It is almost like homegrown small farm apples, backyard grown tomatoes and veggies are all distinctly better than anything you can buy at a big retail food store. Homegrown medicine is better perhaps also because of the months in close contact with the plant and the nurturing going both ways....it doesn't matter how you grow if your caring for the plant your caring for it :-) Something must be happening and altering between the grower and the plant just because they are alive in the same space.

SD, RCM, EK, Redmund, Flyin1420, SRG... Thank you for the support on the videos, it bears weight for me.

The video was triple A.  I did not see all the leaves moving, do you have a large fan running in there, or a box fan? :)

Hey EK, I've been consumed with other things....but yes...I have an oscillating fan running 24/7. I turned it off for the filming though :-) 

 

The lady Guatemalan I pollinated with the China Yunnan did wonderfully. I've cracked a few seeds already and I'm expecting some interesting developments...
