  1. Yes, if the environment is stable and light and everything is spot on. Then I suspect it is Sativa genes doing their thing. Generally, it won't be a big deal towards potency as it is with stress-induced growth typically like. Think of it like this, a Sativa wants to live old and long and the weather is a paradise for her. She is in no hurry to finish and wants to go slowly. She does not typically finish like an indica, that is more all at one-time frame instead of some growth, maturity, smaller growth, maturity and so and so forth. slowly adjusting the temperature and humidity to mimic spring, summer and fall "might" help but I would not be concerned overly if not from stress and would consider it normal growth if I am correct on the genetics having sativa genes. My guess is in part a co-dependent or similar type of gene that under the right conditions can still come through. Nutrition is also a potential factor but I do not speak on that as I assume all things competent with its nutrition, meaning no nitrogen to very little nitrogen in flower.
  2. Generally, this is due to stress, like fox tailing. Consider these aspects: Temperature Humidity Removed too many leaves. It is also sorta normal with sativas and can be seen sativa heavy hybrids. Sativas typically mature due to time as they are equatorial. So with the plant typically finishing in a typical time could still see new growth and still finish and not be due to stress. Hope that helps.
  3. I enjoyed reading this! Thank you!
  4. One that comes to mind is when I had a dispensary person tell me that there was no difference between sativa and indica. It has to do with shelf life and the older the date more indica affect. So they recommended middle aged weed.
  5. I have had many a dispensary worker try to tell me how cannabis is. The person does not know who I am. Let's just say. I just laugh internally and hope the patients get lucky.
  6. No!!!!! He was a good dude. I met him and spoke at length at a gathering of like-minded people many years ago. He is and will continue to be missed and well remembered.
  7. add in your day and night temps and humidity
  8. Regarding the hollow stems. This typically is a result of not enough carbon. The reasons are vast and complicated and I am more book schooled on more of the reasons than witnessed though I have seen this more so in hydroponics than in quality soil. I have seen great plants from both as I am sure you have as well. I wish you great success in your work and I thank you for sharing! There is a good interest in Thai plants in this forum!
  9. Generically spoken. If you want your writings to be understood. Then be effective in doing that. If you are posting for you and maybe a select group who are similar, then all good! It's all good! People interacting in a positive way. Win win! If I dont understand it or have difficulty in understanding, maybe I just got old but that is not their fault. Nor is such writings being pointed towards me so it is not meant for me. Maybe not my cup of tea so to speak but so freaking what! People post for different reasons and for different people sometimes. It is all good and that is what community is. Being that we are small such things can stand out more so than in a larger populace. Sunstone, I'm glad you are here but realize when you rock the boat you make waves. All good peoples here! Crap, Sunstone, where are my manners. Lights one up and passes it to Sunstone. Hey, I'm Hempyfan. Glad to meet you! I probably coughed a bit while handing it to you!
  10. The end answer is a lack of carbon but the reasons for that cause can be many with some debate. Most often I believe this happens from a bit too high temperatures and potentially a lack of rest of the plant combined with the age of the plant. The resting part I have seen heavily debated and in my experience I have no affirmed opinion. I do believe it is good for a plant to rest but I have seen virtually no difference in plants with a short vegetative stage before flowering once they are mature to flower. With that said, I have personally seen plants grown with ideal environments and ideal lighting and nutrition at the same time and have had hollow and others have regular stems. I have not seen any quality difference. My personal view is that it can be a variety or all of the following; stress, nutritional aspects, too weak lighting, to the removal of too many leaves at critical stages of plant development when it is bulding with carbon (stems and such) it can create this aspect. This tends to be more with hydroponic plants as they can absorb faster than soil styled medias. Also, when plants are stressed and need carbon for elsewhere, it can use the pith, regular stems, as a source. Sort of like a fat in our bodies but for use in building materials rather than energy production like us. With detailed records of environment, nutrition, ph, in and outs as applicable it may be possible to determine better management practices. overall in this regard for the average grower. Is not a big deal if the plant is healthy and happy otherwise.
  11. @Damar. Things will turn around. During times like this, I say thank you may I have another. This is not the time to be depressed or negative. There is time for that later. Things will work out. Maybe not in the manner we would like but it will work out. Just do not try to force an issue. The oil job is likely not going to come back fast.
  12. That song summertime was my wife's favorite song. Thank you for the good thoughts, I needed that!
  13. Seems to me your looking for the old skunks before the Europeans started playing with them. It don't exist in regular easy to by form but I am sure in some corner somewhere someone is holding on to plants of yester years. I once ran into an LSD plant in Maine like that once. Looked nothing favorable but when you hit it. Wow! About a decade ago people put lots of work into recreating that old skunk but not quite the same. I think the fact it was more dangerous to do back then, just made it remember more. That said, I knew 1 to 2 hitter quitters all my life and I ain't young. I remember in Europe my favorite strains was citral and skunk or a super skunk crossed with whatever skunk # blah blah. Nothing came to the smell of the old American skunk. But I would not say they were bad or anything negative. I recall when White Widow came out and changed my life! Oh the good old days! Best of luck in your search. I wish I had a direction on an old school skunk for you.
  14. I got a cold, I wish I had a slice of one of those now lol. Fool on the Hill, outstanding work! I enjoy it!
