Welcome to the adventures of Captain Redbeard. What are they about? African Strains from Afropips. Swazi Red, aka "Die Rooibaart". Before the Afropips seeds get too old, they need to be refreshed. The seedbank no longer exists, I understand. The donor of the seeds is allergic to pollen, so asked me to take care of that. Above is a picture of Malawi Gold surrounding an AK47 plant. And here is a closer look: So I put the first five Swazi Red in the well known sponge pots yesterday, after soaking them for a few hours in a mild solution of H2O2 and drop of Pyth-amin. To spread the risk I kept the other five in my fridge, and will make a different plan if the first five fail. Of the Malawi Gold i put 2x10 in fresh soil. The seeds of the #1 pack are huge! The pips were bought in 2009 or 2010, and some freebees came with it. It was called Mystery Sativa" and also had red pistils. That's why there's a question mark at one of the packs. So if the first Swazi adventure leads to this: ...I still got the redbearded cross with the Gold to dig in to. I hope some South African forum members can have a look later on, in case I need advise, or if I see much variety in the pheno's Europe is in a crisis. I'm glad I got some Fool's Gold!
As the topic suggests, I'm growing out some malawi gold, it's said to be a 100% landrace Sativa, produced by Holy Smoke. I'm around week 4 of flower, had an insane stretch, and is slowly growing. I'm not having any issues with the plant, but I can tell it's going to be a really long bloom time. Anyone else grow this and can give me an idea on flower time? It stretched for 3 weeks after 12/12, so I'm expecting a 12-14 week, maybe longer bloom time. I put her in 12/12 around 16" tall and now she stands 5' from the top of the pot. If I weren't growing vertically I would have some problems, as I have 2" of headroom left. Fortunately stretch has stopped and she's putting out buds slowly. Whats the soonest you could theoretically chop this? I have clones of it in bloom also I'm going to experiment with, and this plant is huge and takes up a big part of my room.
