Do hybrids stay small in your equatorial environment? I would imagine even if pure Colombian sativa is gone or hard to find that growing mostly sativa dominate strains would be best for production?

Good question man, nothing really grows well in Bogota (where I've been growing since 04) due to the cold. The altitude keeps temps low (not freezing) and that combined with a lot of cloud cover make the plants really struggle to grow and they are really slow about it. However, native strains of course due the best and require no supplemental lighting (veg). I can grow pretty big plants with a lot of time and supplemental lighting, hybrids and indica dom hybrids included.


Colombian Mangobiche 2019

The cold and altitude seem to really slow the plants down, even the native strains struggle and it's no wonder there were no commercial export grows here, ever. The finca where I will be relocating to (ASAP) is about 1,900 mts and it's a good bit warmer as well as drier there which I hope to have optimal growing conditions.


Mangobiche

But as a rule I would say yes hybrids do grow a lot smaller and slower at this location (2,700mts).



My current Mangobiche are growing well at the moment, more on the way.

How do the growing season work for you? Do all plants effectively autoflower or is there a time of year when the nights are short enough for veg growth to take place?

There might be 10 - 15 minutes difference through out the year but it's basically 12/12 year round. Almost all indoor/imported seed that I've grown out down here without supplemental lighting resulted in a 10 inch stick bud plant. There have been exceptions like some legions Johnny Blaze I grew out back in 07. They vegged on their own and grew to a respectable meter or so high and then flowered. But just about everything other than native varieties require a month or so of supplemental lighting to get big enough to yield anything worth mentioning.

Current Colombian

While waiting to harvest I came across a cannabis delivery service here in Bogota. A young grower here turned me on to the guy and even sent a little price list. It's only weed and only two types, one costing 2,000 COP a gram and another costing 5,000.


White Rhino "organica"

The cheaper one held the title white rhino organica and was/is crippy, but fresh crippy I guess cause it has a very pleasant taste and effect. Not my first choice but better than some, maybe it was white rhino.


Love potion #9

The more expensive one was labeled love potion #9 and seemed to be the same as the other but different, not better just different. I ended up buying 30gs of the "organica" and 10 of the LP#9 for the boss lady. Grace was thrilled to buy cannabis although she doesn't consume it. Really the weed is just for creams and oils but I have to smoke/vape it too.


Sun ripening Colombian Mangobiche

We start working on the finca next week with the greenhouse guy and selecting some of our crew to work there. I can't wait to see how this goes with these never on time guys.



Got to be honest, I'm really looking forward to living and growing at this location. Calm and cool right now

Had to kill another Mangobiche in week six, full on hermi. Quick too, on day all female and the next balls. So out of ten Mangobiche plants not one true male and eight hermis.

Big meetings this week as we start building our crew for the finca. This requires specialist to make everything to government regulation. I had no idea it was going to require this much work and I'm rethinking my condensation. But I'm committed and ready to press forward yet still amazed that almost no one in this operation has any real knowledge of plants much less cannabis.



Still I'm optimistic even if it means consistently having to teach basic things about plants and everyone seems to be afraid of getting high.



Really a pretty good group so far and I really like the sexy female investor that is driving the operation. She understands things a little better than the young scientist guy who's questioning everything.



So next week should be exciting of course I try not to expect anything.

Hey Red, been reading this thread for awhile. Just want to thank you for sharing your journey with us on IC.

I have been on a similar path but further behind in Jamaica, I'm actually there now trying to work out things for the future. Hopefully I make it as far as you and then on to the actual operation.

With the mangobiche you just had trouble with, do you think it could of been light pollution? Or other environmental stresses? Or maybe who made the seeds chose hermi prone plants?

I don't know anything about Jamaica but I certainly wish you the best there. As far as here in Colombia could be worst but at the moment it seems that we are moving forward. It would appear that I've got everything lined up and ready to go but you never know. Right now I got a "sponsor" investor type person, I don't want to say "boss" cause I maintain my independence. But they are super excited about the "new" cannabis industry and I fit right in. So the investors got the finca and applied for all the legal requirements and now actually construction has begun. I went out of town for a few days on some personal business but now that I'm back I've got a couple meetings to go to and some other bullshit to do this weekend. Really I'm only interested in the plant and I don't want to get distracted with details. Then on the other hand I can't let these novices screw something up for the plants, so that's where I am situation wise.

As far as the hermis, wasn't only the Mangobiche that threw some out, so I thought it was a light leak. But can't find one so with some of the other varieties i think it was just bad luck. However the Mangobiche I think is just prone to them as it hasn't been worked by a breeder. But I do have two nice ones left that are staying true so far. No cut taken or males so I pollinated them with one of the only two males I had, a beautiful Bangi Haze. Might be interesting but I'm getting more Mangobiche seeds from the university to hunt for a male.

Next week I'll cut the kush plants that everyone loves so much and start them drying. No one in our group smokes so I should have some nice flowers to vape soon.

Hey man if you're near the Blue mountains I love to see some pics.
