+ NHS or National Health Service or NL5 Haze x Skunk
Hello All :smile:
Here's some details for my forthcoming grow. I've been incredibley fortunate to have been selected to help test the new lines for Mr Nice seeds and have been given the honour of testing the new take on NL5xHaze, one of my alltime favourites. Below you'll find the tech spec and grow plan for the grow and below that you'll find some information from Shantibabas' strain description.
For those that understand the implications of this, here are a few quotes from Shanti with regards some of the background for these genetics..

10 seeds will be started (saving 10) in my "High-Kea" veg box under 190 watts of blue CFL until theyre 6-10 inches tall (2-4 weeks).
Seedlings will be started in 0.6 liter pots in Coco and fed Canna Coco A+B (0.5ml week1) 1ml + Cannazym 1ml + Rhizotonic 1ml
pH 5.8, EC 1-1.25
Veg and Pre Flower Stage
Plants will then be moved to my DR100 to veg under 250 watts of red CFL until they're 18-24 inches tall (2-4 weeks) before being flipped in this room until sexed (2-3 weeks) when clones will be taken.
Seedlings will be transfered to their "final" pots which are 12 liters and fed Canna Coco A+B 1ml - 1.5ml .
pH 5.8, EC 1.25-1.50
All proven females will then be moved to my DR120 under 850 watts of sodium for the remainder of flowering (6-8 weeks).
Plants will be fed Canna Coco A+B 1ml-1.5ml plus H&G Bud XL 1ml from week 4 of flowering until week 7 being replaced by H&G Top Booster (pk13/14) for 3 days during week 6 of flowering.
pH 5.8, EC 1.25-2.00 (during PK boost)
(lets hope we get this far
Flush will be 7-10 days with the pots then being left "dry" for the final 3-4 days. The flush will include a final flush before the "dry out" whereby the EC of the run off will be lowered until it matches the EC of the water going in - in my case 0.67...
pH 5.8, EC as little as possible :wink:
everything above is subject to change as I find out more about how these plants like to grow. All comments, feedback and advice will be gratefully accepted
official website description
NHS-National Health Service (NL5/Haze x Skunk)
Since Neville brought the NL5, Haze and Skunk into being as stable hybrids in the late 80s and offered them as seed, these strains all became well known and loved by their growers in all parts of the globe. Most all strains that are offered in various other Seed companies use these 3 strains to make up their own named strains...and understandably so! Since this hybrid only contains 25% Haze it will be a practical Haze plant to grow in all types of grows. Its pedigree is made up of only winners and can be traced back to the beginning of the Cannabis revolution in breeding. Expect it to go for between 56-70 days in an indoor grow setup. In the northern hemisphere it would be expected to finish in October. In the southern hemisphere it would be expected to be finished late March. One of the all time classic hybrids that expect to yield at least 500 grams per square meter and possible a lot more depending upon you technique of growing. Giving it the name NHS-national health service implies it is able to treat the sick to a healthy state of mind and body...if you never tried it give it a go, you will understand my words better once it is in your possession!

: Not a lot to say when recommending a plant that made a historical impact on the Cannabis world since the 80s thanks to Neville. It has graced the grow rooms of two generations of growers and if I have anything to do with it, I will keep that going for as
: The best way to select a keeper since most will be in that category is to keep the best three plants from a packet of seeds that offer the flavors and effect you desire. Make sure you flower the selected 3 more than one time as it can be that the one you thought was third initially will be the best on the second flowering.
happy growing all
