    Seeds

    There are 3 things that affect seed viability when storing them; moisture, temperature and light. Drier, cooler and darker are better. Before storing seeds they must be dry or they will likely rot so I spread them out on a dry surface out of direct sunlight for a week or two. For short term...

    Question? Am I ready to harvest?

    I agree with the others; I would let them flower longer. I look to the stigmata/pistils and the trichomes for their cues as to when to harvest. There should be at least 1/4 of the stigmata/pistils turning brown and you should see some of the trichomes turning amber. To see the trichomes a 10x...

    Malawi Gold Revisited: Queen Sativa

    Hello all. I usually start my update by stating the Day but I can't do that now because the grow ended last night/early this morning. Yesterday, Day 155 I harvested the last Queen Sativa, #8 and cleaned her and made 5 cobs with a decent amount left over to dry, cure and smoke. The total yield...

    Malawi Gold Revisited: Queen Sativa

    My first impression looking at the pics is 'Man is that ever leafy'. You called it a hawk pheno so I'm guessing that's because of the leaf curling. I don't know what sativa quine is. My MG has clawing at the tips of the leaves but no cupping. My suspicion is it maybe caused from a low humidity...

    Malawi Gold, Chamba, Organic, Daylight Shifting, 2017

    Thanks for the info and pictures APAX. I'm in total agreement about Malawi Gold. It's my favorite as well and I really like the smell as it fills the house. I have the fruity pheno which also has red stems. I also have the woody pheno seeds in the freezer which I will grow sometime in the...

    Malawi Gold Revisited: Queen Sativa

    Day 147 The two remaining plants, #8 and 10 are close to finished. #10 will be moved to the dark room tonight for approx. 36 hrs. before being cut down and harvested. She has great buds much like #9 who is now curing. #8 is close and will be harvested for more cobs and some bud. She's leaning...

    Malawi Gold Revisited: Queen Sativa

    Day 154 (#5) / 144 (#8 &10) Today, I cleaned the stems from #5 and made 3 more cobs with a bit of bud left over to dry and cure. I found a little tool in my toolbox that simplified the cleaning process cutting down the time required substantially. I used the little pair of scissors pictured on...

    Malawi Gold Revisited: Queen Sativa

    Day 152 (#5) / 142 (#8 & 10) Just a quick update. #5 is being harvested without any drying time. I'm cutting off a branch at a time and making cobs. I have 2 cobs wrapped in banana bark fermenting with more to come. This picture shows her on the right without her top which I cut off this past...

    Can anyone tell me if this is normal?

    My present grow is in Kryptonite and I think it's a great soil. I'm growing a sativa and am on Day 152. I have only watered my plants and have not added anything else. It's a stand alone soil that only needs to be watered. It's natural to want to add all those additives that are advertised but...

    Malawi Gold Revisited: Queen Sativa

    Day 148 (#5) / Day 138 (#8 & 10) Since my last post I removed #9 from the grow room and kept her in the dark room for approx. 36 hrs. Then I cut her down and hung her upside down for five days. I kept the temperature at 18C and had a fan circulating the air for most of that time. I turned the...

    Malawi Gold, Chamba, Organic, Daylight Shifting, 2017

    Looks real good. What is the cob wrapped in? It looks like there're seeds so I'm guessing you bought it. If there are seeds are they viable for germination?

    Malawi Gold Revisited: Queen Sativa

    Day 138 (#5) / 128 (# 8, 9 & 10) I got up this morning expecting to move #9 to the dark room starting the harvest process but I decided to give her another day or two. I was also expecting to move the three cobs from the 26C spot to a cooler temp to begin the curing stage but again I decide to...

    Tangwena's Malawi-Style Cob Cure: Fermented Cannabis

    I don't know where I got the seeds from. At the time, I purchased a few varieties from different suppliers and then put the seeds in the freezer for a couple of years before sowing them. I looked back in my emails to try and find the purchase record but couldn't locate it so I really don't know...

    Tangwena's Malawi-Style Cob Cure: Fermented Cannabis

    Thanks for this TriangleCheese. That's reassuring. I haven't tasted this last generation but did smoke her mother and she was as potent as I can handle. In fact a small toke was adequate and sometimes when there was more trichome dust I would need a bit of a sit out. This time around I used much...
