Hi there OpenGrow crew! -- from Maria

Hi there OpenGrow crew!

 

This is Maria. Just got an account here after lurking for maybe a year.

Was drawn in through Sannies work, which looks so impressive.

 

I used to grow about 20 years ago. Indoors.

First with sativas local to my home area, breeding for indoor, maybe to F4 or so.

Then crossing those with Dutch strains like NL, Silver Pearl and Afghani.

That's when Dutch hybrids first started to appear in my home town.

Had some real nice F1 and F2 hybrids, esp with my local indoor sativa X NL mother.

 

Got out of growing for a long time. Back into it two years ago.

This time doing mainly autos and some photos.

Outdoor guerrilla grows, in a new location, sub-tropical.

Found that with near year-long 12/12 light cycles, photos grow like autos outdoors.

Even did a winter grow outdoors.

And recently finished a very cheap and easy indoor micro grow.

That was mainly CBD plants, some CBD:THC, some straight THC.

Was doing Sweet Seeds, Fast Buds, Dinafem, Dutch Passion, Heavyweight strains.

 

Now in another new place, tropical climate.

Want to try some long sativas outside, just like 12/12 from seed.

Sannies' Jack (reg) and Killing Fields (fem) seemed like a great option.

Waiting on some beans in the post now.

Will have to do some prep work for the guerilla garden.

New area, still checking possible sites.

Will be a challenge, not expecting too much out of it.

Just a little herb as a result will be fantastico.

 

You can see some of my other grows.

Just Google or whatever Maria Sanchez and Autoflower... (AFN).

 

Love and hugs,

MJS

I've been growing my own marijuana plants and one of them is this kind of strain https://www.gyo.green/gyo-seedbank-green-crack-bst-gck-f.html for almost a year now and this pesty insects and mites have been putting me in a trouble some situation.
Over 250 insects and mites associated with cannabis. Spidermites have the most harmful economic impact on cannabis. Aphids and Whiteflies come in second and third. These pests vector fungi, and viruses.Reportedly there are well over two hundred and fifty insects and mites associated with Cannabis.  I think it is best to talk about those that have the most economic impact.

Hi Maria :) Nice looking plants there. May I ask, are you a woman? If So Sweet Lord, now there will be two of us :)

 

Hi @gardenartus

Thank you. These couple weren't too bad.

Had a bit of mold on almost all of them.

See the skies and weather in those photos?

That was the best day of the month until harvest.

28 out of 30 days rain, fog, mist and cloud (in mountains).

Yes. Two X chromosomes here.

Noticed the heavy smell of testosterone on this forum.... :P

Have been stalking your posts and grows here already.....  ;-)

Okie... maybe you have the wrong thread.

But welcome to OG.

That's my 2nd to last location, did another grow about 100 km from there, but now in completely different corner of the globe.

Great place for a couple of things: remote and free from people, clean air, lots of space.

Terrible for other things: massive tropical storms from July, Aug, Sept and into October, and heavy rain, fog, mist all year.

Best to do spring to mid summer grows. Which is the season of those photos above.

I haz my beenz. Tey haz arrived!

 

10 reg Sannies Jack

5 fem Killing Fields

5 reg Jack Candy

 

Have to plan my grow.

Have a short window from mid to end of Oct to germ, sprout and get them out.

Will start them in the spongepots, of course.

Then...

 

?

 

Not sure if I want to drop them all or not. Prob not.

Because have fems and regs, may do 2+ seeds / sprouts per bag / site.

 

Maybe three or four big pots / bags / sites.

Each one put in 1 x Kf, 1 or 2 x SJ, and 1 x JC.

Best gets 3 or 4 females, prob 2, at worse 1.

And gives room for some plants to be poor starters...

(And leaves me with some beans to play with later...)

How does that sound?

 

Haven't grown here before, so don't know what success rate will be.

Don't have any fancy soil, nutes or whatever (so please don't "suggest" it...)

Can maybe get a 10L bag of local compost mix,

and throw in a bunch of local dirt and some sand...

 

Don't know if I should put them in big bags on site, or put them in the ground.

The ground here... a lot of paddy / rice fields, so much ground is partially flooded now.

And a lot of reeds, which also show how wet it is.

Obviously not good for canna.

But this is rainy season, which is about to end, and will have low rainfall by Dec / Jan.

And digging holes... takes time and is a security issue here. Lots of people.

So maybe just clear some weeds / reeds and put in a big bag with drainage holes.

Should prob try a few variations, increase chances of at least one bag working ok.

So, in bags or in the ground?

 

I'm in South East Asia.

Light cycles from 13/11 to 12/12 down to 11/13 throughout the year.

That's why went with the Jack crosses.

Sannie seemed to think they'd do ok in this when I ordered and emailed him.

And I know he often grows at 12/12 from seed.

 

Any tropical growers want to throw out some pearls of wisdom? Please do!

I should prob start a sep grow journal / thread for this...  :P

 

I actually tried some testers, germed a month ago,

and planted out on the roof of an abandoned house two + weeks ago.

Must go check on them to see how they're doing.

They were some unused beans from last grow.

Photos and autos, CBD and THC strains, all fems, Dutch Passion, Sweet, Dinafem, Heavyweight.

Looking forward to seeing your grow as it comes along in the paddy, Maria! I've been a guerilla grower too...just in a northern clime. Trying indoors for the first time right now.

Thank you @jodykwik!

You'll find indoors a lot of fun -- with lots of control!

@Maria sanchez welcome to OG Maria.:wave:
 

Nice little plants you had there,despite the humidity they really made the best outta the worst.:tu

If you attempt to grow on waterlogged soil,you can also plant bags of soil with the bottom removed/pierced in a undeep hole.
You just leave 2/3 of the bag out of the ground so you have some elevation.

OR

you can put in a drainage tubing since you grow in the mountains,you have different elevations and thus you can let the gravity take te access water away better.
 

I'd take the last option since you'll be back for more in the future i guess?
Just takes more sweat,but is better for the soil and thus your plants.

You can also use a thick layer of cocosfibers packed loose in a small trench with gravel on top as a drainage,since you live somewhere in Asia that cocofibre should be an abundant resource right?;)
