Koon's Alpine guerrilla experience

Greetings OD growers,
finally my dreams are partially realised.

Since I started smoking and appreciating the cannabis plant, I wanted to have some alpine bud, grown in subalpine climate in the highland mixed woods, the kind of place that brings peace in the heart.
The subalpine woods and general landscape are rich with aromas and turbulent air that awakens the skin and raises the consciousness to another level.


So I decided to give it a shot this season, a very cool IC member gave away some of his seeds for this purpose and finally the pieces just came together.


The main strain for this purpose is called Purple Nepal and seems to be of nepalese origin acclimatised for mid-north europe, bred in Denmark(I think).
The other strains I'm putting in the mix are KC33(two phenos), a friend's cross of Typhoon x Shaman and another northern acclimatised strain, the Pekhu ruderalis.

All seeds are regular, this grow is basically a seed run and an experiment of cannabis' ability to stand the kind of environment we find up in the mountains.


Some details:

the plants were all around 2 weeks old at transplant, not so developed due to small pots and rubbish soil, but sprouts were standing well. Just starting the 4th set of leaves and healthy roots.
The soil I put them in is native forest soil, mossy and black, with nice woody aroma of pines and berries. Some small additions were made, high P guano, slow release pellet fertiliser with added microelements and microorganisms, some wood ash and zeolite. Just a handful of the mixture was added to every plant.


Weather was just perfect, overcast and fairly windy, soil was pretty moist due to heay rains the day before. The road to the site experienced some minor avalanches and falling rocks, but that's normal for the area.

Oh yes, I took only one measure of security against deer, a bottle of my urine placed in a hole by a rock in the middle of the place, sprayed a bit of it all around to mark my territory


The plan is to maybe visit the site in max a month when I'm on vacation, just to see if they survived transplant and hungry animals. I really hope they make it as there is a lot of green feed for the deer around.


Enough talk, here are some pictures.

Feels like it's the right place

Thanx RosettaStoned!
It's very pictoresque up there, on the way there were hundreds of good places, but harder to access. So this must do it.

Hoping my piss bottle does its thing

Lovely spot there Koondense, only good ganja grows at 1000 meters its a shame you didnt use green plastic net against birds..its cheap, stealth and protects a bit against hail.
Cant wait to see some progress...Saludos brate!

I didn't think of that! Damn.

Well, let's say the weather will make its selection for the sturdiest bitches
Yeah gotta love highland bud, I once had a chance to smoke a joint of Tolminska domaca and it was something else. Tasty and full on pine/cedar aroma, deep green and overall wonderful. No idea on strain.


Saludos comrades!
