Malawi, Durban (CBG), Ethiopian and Honduras

Hello, so i am new here and it is y first grow journal ^^ i have limited grow experiences, but always hybrid which gave me similar results everytime. And one day i discovered it was because they were almost all hybrids of the same species :( I then discovered a whole new subspecies of cannabis that takes way longer and have different effects, and fell in love, to soon discover they were all disappearing which made me sad. Thankfully some grea breeders like aceseeds and cannabiogen kept them alive so we can keep track of them, which is incredible so thank you.


As i said, i have limited experience so this will be a test grow. I have never run landrace before, so i am ready to face a lot of issues. i have a moderately good amount of vertical space ready (around 7 feet available for them) and time is not an issue. my goal is not productivity nor rentability as i do not sell and my main interest in doing this is discovering them, how they grow, spend some time with those ancient plants and learning from this experience (and of course having some great smoke haha). hermie is not an issue either, it'll be annoying but as i said previously, i really don't care about productivity, only quality so as long as they are worth it, then so be it !


I have accumulated a lot of seeds from many landrace strains, even some very forgotten one from various breeders (fts, rsc, usc...) but almost half of them come from aceseeds. they do seem to have a passion for breeding and discovering new species as opposed to making the same thing over and over and i highly respect that.


anyway so back to my grow, i decided to start with some "easier" sativas that run for 14 weeks on average. I have chosen the Honduras, Durban from Cannabiogen, Malawi and Ethiopian. They are all very different but seem to have similar flowering length. I do have another box to dry the earlier ones so in anycase that wont be an issue. The one im most interested in is Ethiopian, because i love uplifting, non anxiety strains ^^ Malawi scares me though, but the strains seems so worked well by aceseeds that it seems, as the info i gather say, that its the best "landrace sativa hard strain" to begin with and im very curious of her.


So here i am and let's go my grow will probably not be worth of a read for many people as i am not very goodand will probably cause some very obvious issues, but for those who will participate and follow me in my journey, thank you very much and i look forward to talk to you !


note : the following logs will have a lot of premade posts. i already wrote some posts and already started some time ago but did not register until today so the beginning will be weeks of log in a few days. sorry again

So i just popped the seeds. they look so different from what i am used to see. maybe its me over gloryfying everything, but the malawi seeds just look prehistoric and weird to me. it is very fascinating. i have put them in the freezer and then in the fridge, so they will probably take longer then expected to germinate. i took 3 of each strain to have higher chance of females. i plugged them into root riots with a little root solution, into a small dome box with a humidifier to get high humidity

(7 days later) so now i realize i made a mistake. I was not expecting the strains to have such different germination time, so i did not set the light on because i was scared of the root riots drying out too fast. i will try to break them down in the strains each :


The Honduras show extreme vigor compared to the other ones. they all sprouted at the same time almosta day or two after popping them, so they stretched hugely in only abut a day and a half because they didnt have light. i have never seen a strain with such vigor. They are much bigger than the rest in terms of leaves too, even those that just popped right after. light green, i am wondering if they are already hungry ? In anycase i will take the less is more approach as to me, a plant can survive very well in the wild where there is mostly low nutrients and believe they would be way less affected by a lack of nutes that i can fix quickly than an excess of nutes.



Ethiopian : They are the slowest of the group. they took 7 days to sprout. I have heard tropical strains sometimes take a very long time to sprout, i don't know how true it is. I was thinking they maybe have low vigor, but the roots actually spread faster than the Honduras, as even how small they are, some roots are already out in the wild on the bottom so i don't know. We'll see. Very thin leaves from the beginning



Malawi : They are doing fine. One is way more vigorous than the other and stretched a little bit. will have to take care of her


Durban : Very much the most middle of them all, took 3 to 4 days to pop, medium size, no big stretch because the light was there. Looks like its doing fine.

note i forgot to add : i wont be using root riot next time. it makes multi strain grow harder as they can dry dangerously fast. they work really well, but i feel sowing in soil is more idiot proof and makes them have more friction which results in less shells stuck on their head (i had 2 or 3 on the twelve like that, even after spraying them regularly for 2 days)


Also, im doing this entirely organic

thank you ^^ i forgot to add to, one of the malawi came out with purplish internode and faded to green afterwards. I don't know what it means, but it sure is interesting

sorry, i didn't mean internodes, but inside the new true leaves and cotyledeon when sprouting. seems i can't edit my posts, i will be careful in the future to avoid multiposting on a row

What size is your grow area? I know you mentioned 7' high . . .

I am landrace curious & I have a number in stock waiting in line to grow.

cool ^^ my grow room is 5 wide and 7.5 tall, is a lil too much horizontal space as i dont need that much and takes a lot of space. i would have like more vertical space tho because im scared of the long flowering sativa haha

(last premade post, a few days later) Something has happenned. Due to issue with mold (not plant, but from moldy clothes) i have entierely disinfected my grow room with vinegar and peroxide hydrogen (not mixed). it worked apparently, but i put so much vinegar everywhere that i became dizzy and had to run for oxygen. Its not the first time i cleaned with vinegar, but i put so much everything was drenched in it. I even became very ill the next day and caught a big flu.

The plants did not like it at all either. They got all burned and almost died. It was such a dumb mistake i feel very stupid. And for info, they were not even in the same location where i vinegar'd everything, which shows how much i messed up.

I know i have said i will be ok if this doesnt go well but it is not true. I feel very sad when i see them as they look terrible. I was wanting to trash them down and start over but this would go against what this whole thing is and be very coward-ish, plus i'm responsible for what happenned to them so the least would be to fix this whole thing and care for them to make up for it so i decided to suck it up and make them get better. I will do my best for them to recover, and my plan is to just let them be with water, heat and sun. Some parts are still green and the roots seems compeltely unaffected so i hope this will be a bad memory soon. After all, we are both ill so we both need to recover

We will see what happens.

when they were fine :



right after the vinegar bath (speaks for itself) :


a day after :
