Single Speed Haze Outdoor (Grow threatened by Storms!)

Recommended Posts

So what's up guys!

Since I moved down here from Europe i've been looking for strains to grow here.

I did a few small grows with autoflowers and a E$kobar strain but eventually knew I would go to Sativa's and I'm kinda in to trying

Super Silver Haze crosses.

I grew Sugar Punch and Shackzilla wich I might talk about another time.

 

So right now i got this Speed Haze wich is : Super Silver Haze X Jack Herer

I did not see much of this strain online but got this seed wanted to document this strain and let you guys see the struggles i go through growing down here!

I do not have much space at home to veg/flower so it got a minimal veg at home and now i am guerilla growing!

 

Got this plant out 4-5 weeks ago so let's start with some pics

 

Week 1 of flower

Good luck with Hurricane Matthew.

 

I used to live in the Carolinas, and a friend of mine said to me today, "Aren't you glad you won't get nailed by Matthew?"

 

"What? I don't even KNOW Matth... Oh, the storm."

Thanks man,we were "lucky" with this hurricane Matthew.

It passed just north of us as a category 1.

Both the islands east and west of us got a lot of rain and some wind.

Somehow it "missed" us,altough the wind did turn and destroyed a lot of beaches at the south west coast, while the islands next to us sustained way more damage!

Images will follow!

So here i have an image of the systems threatening the Caribbean island and possibly the U.S. east coast.

Matthew that already passed us by, Nicole to the north eastern Caribbean, and possibly Otto, south eastern Caribbean heading west.

And hurricane Matthew that passed by us as a category 1 hurricane but later turned in to a real "monster"

Well to tell you the truth i don't live in fear to get blown away, this island sits just outside of the hurricane zone.

Storms/hurricanes that have passed in the last 50 years were all north enough, and or not strong enough to blow away your house/roof (if you have a good/well maintained brick house).

With that being said, there is poverty here to and alot of people don't have a descent roof, wich will get blown away.

 

Unfortunately when a storm like that passes, even when not close/powerfull enough to blow away roofs and houses

the wind changes direction and damages most of the beaches at the south coast of the island.

 

And oh yeah our plant can still get blown away, and i am wondering how everything went with the plants/growers of Jamaica where

the Hurricane passed much closer to, and as a category 4 hurricane rather than the category 1 that passed us here.

 

I know someone in St.Vincent who's house "broke" because of the storm, it wasn't even a hurricane yet there.

Something like this happens to us every 5-6 years, last time it was Hurricane thomas in 2010.

It was much worse than this one,this one at the last moment he dodged us.

 

In 2010 the flooding was a big problem, friends of mine went wakeboarding and jetskying in the streets.

 

A little film for you guys to see how it was

 

And some pics from before Hurrican Matthew

Everyone outside of these "natural disaster zones" is generally more frightened of them than the people in those zones.

 

I've lived in hurricane country for a long time, and before that lived in "tornado country" for about 10 years. I never saw a tornado, even though I ran outside with my camera whenever there was a tornado warning. Hurricanes are never surprises (unless they hit a place that rarely gets hit, like the northeast US).

 

People in California downplay any fear of earthquakes. Yeah, they know they'll happen, but they'll deal with it. When I seem perplexed by this, they tell me I'm crazy to deal with hurricanes or tornadoes.

 

I have to say that I'm glad I don't have to worry about a hurricane ripping the roof off my house anymore. It would have exposed my attic grow room for all to see!

And yes I said plantS, that's right!

And oh yeah earlier I was wondering about growers in Jamaica you know with the hurricane passing close by.

Well i got word that everything is ok,alot of rain but no strong winds.

 

And as you can see i had to stake the plant for extra security in those days and for the rest of the grow bacause hurricane season is not over yet.

 

Good luck making through the storm brotha.

 

Plant is looking good.

 

Be safe and hunker down.

 

Thanks man, i'm greatfull it dodged us.

But just read it already cost over 260 lives in the Caribbean.

Fruity Chronic Juice not doing to well, don't know what the problem is.

They both got bacto last time, and this time i gave the FCJ molasses in the water,

while the Speed Haze got some BAC bloom.

Isn't your neck of the woods earthquake country now? My grow room popped a bunch of light leaks when that one hit.

I wanted to give updates on the plants but the rain season has started and when it rains i'm happy because: 1.they love the "little" rain and 2.Don't have to hike over there to water them.

 

The sun is shining like a 250 watter or less.

I will see if I can take some pics tomorrow if it doesn't rain.

 

I'm still trying to figure out the best way to grow here, so I can use all y'all input!

As you can see i got problems with insects eating the leaves.

What do you guys suggest to do against this next time?

Those leaves don't look that bad. I wouldn't spray anything I intend to smoke with anything once the buds start developing. Do you have caterpillar problems over there?

Thanks Mr.Dirt, well they don't look that bad but i got some problems and want "fix" this next time.

I think it's caterpillars but to tell you the truth i didn't see any, but last grow, the shackzilla had the same thing and when

harvesting i noticed some white "stuff" in between some of the buds.

Did not want to smoke it so I threw it away.

 

So do you guys know anything (organic) I could use next time?

 

Anyway it has been 4 since I watered the plants.

It has rained 2 days ago but not allot so today i went and expected the plants to be suffering:

 

Beginning of week 7 for the Speed Haze:

gallery_8516_5679_103641.jpg

 

I expected it to be looking much worse, I expected it to look real thirsty but it looks better then I thought it would.

 

The Fruity Chronic Juice has started to show pistils and is also looking better then i thought it would!

It didn't look good the first week1/2 and that's one other reason I expected it to stay real small!

Still not happy with the size but that's what you get here when you can't veg for long.

One of the struggles i go through growing down here!

 

FCJ start of week 3

This kinda turned in to a perpetual outdoor grow,hahaha, not allot of people can say they have a perpetual outdoor grow

but i like it,harvesting 1 plant a month.

Next should be a Paradise Seeds Dutch Kush i got as a freebee.

Normally I would prefer to grow sativas because indicas stay to short and i'm not really able to veg em to tall/much.

But my wife is Dutch (me to) and wanted me to grow the kush for her.

 

Next week I should put her outside to keep up with my once a month harvest,but she is still to small so I will

put out a Shining Silver Haze (which is much smaller then the kush) but hoping those sativa genes will make it grow to some decent height

and am hoping I can take some clones of of her.
