Hi friends ! Here comes a diary of my actual grow, an outdoor session, in France, located on the 47.5° N . It was now 6 years i stopped growing, mostly indoor for 15 years. Just like riding a bike, you don't forget your basics. i always be an soil & organic grower. I try every possible technics in hydro, aero, and always came back to the good old dirt. For a successful grow, you need few things: - Good genetics - w/o a decent strain, it is loosing times and energy - Good medium, in my case a decent soil, organic feeding : The pot is 40 liters, filled with 6-15-13 premix(30mS/m) + 4-8-10 - slow release granulate - Passive feeding. - Sun i lost an hole life of genetics, but find back this winter a bag of seeds, the last cross i did in 2013 before i quited. But never tested them before this year. And that is not the most easy strain to work with. It a 4ways cross of Pure sativa strain, from Landraces parents; So not yet stabilized, but full of promise "on the paper" [Gambian male x Neville's Haze female] x [Colombian gold 1972 male x Jamaican Lambs-bread female]. Except the Neville's Haze, the landraces genetics i've worked were provided by USC seeds in early 2010's. And i grew all these strains individually at the time, and made my own selection, The Gambian male is very special : as far as i know, he has not been bred with a ruderalis, but he grew like an auto, flowering after only 3 weeks and showing pollen after 5 - Fast ! And he was my choice of male in order to shorten the flowering period of the 14/16 weeker i was going to pollinate; as we will see later in this diary, the result to make it as early as possible is better than expected. The seeds are 6 years old and has not been store in the rules of art, but enough to get some viable kids. In my area, spring started early, warm and sunny, and i threw directly on the ground of my garden a bunch of seeds at the end of March. 3 weeks later, on April14th i saw two of them showing up.
