Advice for Strain / tropical climate

Recommended Posts

Hello

A friend of mine is living in Thailand (7N)

This year, the Thai law about Cannabis and Kratom will change, with a reclassify from cat2 to cat5 with will make thailand safer than France for smoking

They also approved growing medical for export in a few provinces.

My friend would like to grow a few small stealthed plants

-Must have low smell, because locals may need more time to realize law changed.

-Must be feminised, no herma to avoid accidental pollution. There is other growers in the area.

-Fast and small prefered

The only strain i know that fills criteria is the Northern Light #9 from Sagamartha. I think automatic strains would not perform great with 12/13hours of daylight but i may be wrong.

Do you know some other available strains that would match, especially for the low smell?

 

Best regards

Hello @Aya

Interested in your post, because I'm growing in similar location to your friend.

And I have some experience doing outdoor grows in the tropics elsewhere.

Yes, NL does have low smell, but...

You really want to stick with sativa and sativa dominant strains.

Two reasons:

Light cycles:

Outdoors in Thailand is naturally from 13/11 to 11/13.

That means outside plants will naturally be on a "flowering light cycle".

Indica plants will have no time to vegetate, and flower immediately.

I did some photoperiod NL plants outside in sub-tropics,

they finished in about 10 weeks total, not very big plants at all.

Weather / humidity: 

Depends on season, but apart from Dec / Jan / Feb, it can be quite wet and humid.

Indica buds are dense, and will easily get bud rot. Very bad.

My most dense plants, indicas, get bad bud rot outside.

 

So, I'm now trying sativa dominant plants that flower in about 10-13+ weeks.

And aiming to finish the grow in Dec / Jan or so.

Going to drop some Sannies Jack and Killing Fields mid-October.

At 10-12 and 11-13 week strains, should be finished about end of Dec to early Jan.

Perfect to end up on low rain / low humidity, avoid bud rot, higher crystals.

Or can try some long flowering auto plants, that go for 70-90 days.

Lots of breeders have these now, like Dinafem, Dutch Passion, Sweet Seeds.

I can recommend all those breeders / seed banks.

 

For small plants, just use small pots.

And pinch / trim / LST / HST to keep size in control.

Depends how small you want, but no more than 10L perhaps.

 

People in Thailand know what ganja is. It's a native here.

It was just common medicine until the stupid War on Drugs ...

 

They are now wise enough to know better.

Laws changing. Time is coming.

 

Grow safe, stay safe.
