    They're not the easiest plants in the world to grow that's for sure pmsl. I have got some more TV seeds so I'll have another shot to get hold of a boy in the summer and add that back into the mix. I reckon they'll do well once a few generations have been grown indoors though, shame I can't do about 50 and pick the best of the bunch

    Just had a thought about this Tirah plant. I've been running MH pretty much the whole way through this grow as my HPS blew in the first week. So I'm wondering if this might have effected the way the buds have formed on her

    Completely agree.

    This is about selective breeding and progression. Hopefully a nice speedy indica father and nice bushy quick flowering high yielding mother to cross and then keep playing with. 100% indica is to be cherished

    Tell you what, I'm gonna grow all my TV's outdoors, I'll pop em indoors and get em outside and once they sex I'll have to grab hold of a few cuts of male and female (although I will hack males down outside). I'll have a play

    All the best GB.

    I've asked the same question in my TD mk2 diary mate, this time with the TD's I have left the 1kw MH up.. And this time they've not got the same bud structure or shape to them.

    I thought it might have been something to do with the MH light myself.

    It's interesting for sure.

    Selective breeding is the thing, deffo. Just a bit tooooo wisky

    I used to think that about the fast to flower as a strategy but rockster told me that that is a trait of hemp strains so we've got to be carefull. I think you've just got to cross everything, mark up everything, take cuts of everything and then when the goodies are smoked take the best of those with the best growth patterns/structure and do the whole thing again....a few times. But then we'd all be running pro breeding set up in Spain pmsl

    To be honest, I want to breed more than I want to grow plants to smoke. Obviously you have some flowering but breeding interests me more. It's the fact I have to grow at home and my family live with me. If I didn't have family I'd knock the back end out of this growing malarkey.

    I'll look into hemp strain stuff.

    Normally its Best Indica x Best Sativa as you know. Get a wide variety of options next gen' then. Take best gens and backcross if need be to retain desire traits and so on and so fourth.

    One of them new yanks from RIU came on here but left cos he had 100+ plants. It take brass balls to grow that many plants.

    GG is where it's at mate, get them outdoors and taht way you can make more choices matey

    Fair play to Rockster, I got nothing but respect for people who make dreams happen for themselves.

    They've taken about 6 weeks to mature off CocoMonkey. Should be interesting when I run a couple out for christmas
    I'll have to catch up on your AK grow but you're right about the pollen though, it get's everywhere, bit like a drunken bloke trying to piss in the top of a bottle . Luckily the main buds on mine are not too heavily seeded but the lower ones, properly pollentated, are just straggly seed pods. Once I've got the seeds out of it though the remains will go in the hash bag with the leaves at harvest time.
    Haha like what you did there, I got pissing in my empties down to a fine art although whenever I drink one can of lager I end up drinking two for some reason, I think thats why we get hangovers because it dehydrates ya, saying that though just lately im normally still pissed in the morning. Im on the wagon at the min.
    The opposite has happened to mine, the tops have been pollinated and the bottoms are mostly fine, probably due to the fan blowing it about.

    Lovely mate and congrats/well done on the seed haul.
    For me the TV looks a total stunner. It is great to see her in indoor glory.

    Unhappy Done and dusted

    Week 10, Day 67 Flower and they're down.

    The Tirah Valley had a final two weeks on plain water, dry and dark for last 3 days before I chopped her down at last.

    Couple of pics.

    Final Full - She was purpling deeply on the leaves as she came to the end


    Stripped back - you don't need to ask how much she yielded, about an 3/4oz



    Kholas/buds







    Trichomes - can't say I didn't leave her long enough





    So, a long, hard journey on this landrace. And, now she has had a few weeks curing of a meagre yield, the end result didn't justify the effort, other than a pat on the back for getting it to the end (getting it germed and alive for 2 weeks was the biggy)

    No smoke report as it just didn't cut the mustard. Low potency, very little indica hug and very little head stone. This may well be a consequence of the phenotype, and due to her being slightly seeded.

    Seeds.
    The seeds she produced are also a little worrying. I got about 30 decent ones, but, have quite a few bad ones too. Not in the usual, empty-husk type way, but seeds that dried, split, and I suspect died, while still on the plant. I don't know why/what caused this, I hope there is no deseases lurking in them.

    Dodgy seeds - any ideas?

    Just a little bit fella

    I can't really see the widow cross adding anything to the mix, but I'll probably chuck a few outside somewhere and see how they do just in case.

    It's a shame because it was a pretty little plant when settled in, and had some lovely calyx formation....just a bit rubbish in the final analysis. Oh dear, what a pity, never mind

    Hi GB, that's a shame amigo.

    I wonder if the dodgy seeds were caused by excess heat in your groom, maybe they dried out and split, it must be pretty cold in the Himalayas at harvest time normally.

    All good things
