Subject: Iranian Autoflower and others
Date Posted: 02 May 2012 at 21:12
So its time to pit my wits against the Irish weather for another season. This year i have some Iranian autos and other seeds from canadian breeders. They are BlueBonic x GG#3 and B.C.coastal mix. Not sure if GG stands for Guerilla Gold or Guerilla Gutso

A few weeks ago i hadn't really got a plan, now ive 14 seedlings and still no plan!! I started 3 IA's about 4-5weeks ago on a window sill, one grew one of those corkscrew type of tap root that turned back in on itself and never made it, the other 2 are chugging along nicely. For the past couple of weeks they have been out in one of those plastic greenhouses, been some cold nights but they dont seem to mind. These have no artificial light at all.

19th April still on window sill.


23 April, repot and into greenhouse


Today,


And the BBxGG and BCM, i just put these directly into the compost on 24th april, all are up bar one, but its just a little behind, i can see it pushing through the soil. They are a little leggy from being on the windowsill but ill repot soon and put them in the green house aswell. Again no artificial light.

Howdy, weather hasn't been great but i decided to plant one of the IA directly in the ground a couple of days ago, so far so good, no adverse affects! The others are coming along nicely, better start coming up with a plan as to where im going to put them! Ive sussed out a couple of guerilla spots not far from me, a few might go there.

Heres the IA i planted out

BB X GG#3 and the other IA

Hello alecky i hope you are well.
I am having a week in Donegal at the start of next month so i hope the weathers going to pick up.About 5 years ago and after a 25 years absence i had a two week holiday in Donegal and out of the 14 days it rained constantly for 12 of them. Both my parents are from Donegal and i have dozens of relatives there.
Fingers crossed you and i both get some good growing weather.
You have a good evening.

no no no alecky, if you go traipsing around the Irish country side rooting through bushes etc your likely to be picked off by hunters. i can see the head lines now "missing link found in Ireland"

seriously though the plants all look great, im thinking maybe i should of put my IA outside from the beginning, good luck with the weather bud it has to pick up soon.

Just out of curiosity, what is the latest you guys can get plants out in your area and still get a proper harvest. Where I am in the states I can put out from end of may through July 4th and harvest until the end of Oct.

Sounds like you guys are having the rain issues we had last year. Even our veggie gardens had to go in late cause it was day after day of rain.

Last time I was in Donegal, it rained every single day, despite being summer. Still very fond of the place though.

Melvan the uk's weather is notoriously bad that's why we drive around in submarines not cars in fact some days i do not venture outdoors as i am a poor swimmer.
Ganja i think i am right in saying that Donegal is the wettest county in Ireland.
All have a good day.

Agreed-all of that side of the country is super wet,i dont ever remember being in Donegal when it wasn't raining or snowing! Followed closely by Westport in county mayo. Enjoy your stay kph, and if your driving up there take extra care, the roads in Donegal are notoriously bad.

Hi Mel, we constantly have a rain problem here %3cmile , its easier to count the days when it doesn't rain, any periods, of more than 2weeks sunshine is classed as a heat wave!

Sicklehand, how very dare you, may your balls fester in hell.%3clown I can see the head line though, "missing link found dead, planting cannabis plants. Experts say weed is to blame"

I put the other IA outside today aswell,put her in a 40ltr pot where she will stay till the death! 2/3 of the pot is filled with soil from the veg bed that has manure, blood meal and bone etc dug threw it over last yr and earlier this yr, lots of earth worms in it too. Filled the rest of the pot with regular compost/perlite mix.

Hi growers, the weather has really picked up this last week, 21c today, bout bloody time! I lost 2 plants, one coastal mix fell from a shelf and made shite of the plant and one of the BB X GG#3 got devoured by slugs. The slimey bastards.

The BB x GG have really started growing and are further ahead than the coastal mix, ive picked 4 and re-potted them, ill pick 4 of the BC mix and re-pot those in a few days also. I have homes for the 2 plants left over.

The iranians are plodding along nicely, doing there thing, theres  a few pre flowers on them now, hope they get a bit bigger before flowering sets in! Nice smell coming from them now too!

4 BBxGG#3 and an IA on the right








BC Coastal Mix


And finally the IA planted directly in the ground.

lol so true, I spent a summer in Ireland on a bicycle... many moons ago now. Counted 6 days, where it didn't rain at all, out of nearly 3 months in the country and 3 of those days were spent in Dublin looking for a bike.

All the best for the summer this year Alecky, fingers crossed you get a little more sun than usual. %3ceed%20leaf

lol no I was looking to buy a bike... took 3 days to find the right bike at the right price. Started out the first few days averaging 15-20km a day... ride, rain, shelter, ride, shelter etc... once we began to ignore the rain the distances covered each day began to improve.

Longest single day stretch was 160km... that's when I spat the dummy and decided to go home, rode from Tipperary to Dublin, only got off the bike once during the day.

I see, just like if you had a shitload of hash to hide and made a driveway out of it..

What about the aroma, does it dissipate outside or is wind direction a concern? I've got an eye on a few places for a cheeky wee outside plant but the occasional dog walker might pass within yards. Too close?

Hey everyone- Sarah i wasnt suggesting you were trying to nick a bike!! Just to say how things have changed!Now we even have those bikes you can rent from the local council, Amsterdam style!

Hd, yeah exactly like the hash driveway! When crows start making nests from sticks of bud ill reassess the situation!! As for the smell, i find the hot days with no breeze the worst. its like the smell lingers around the garden.

Heres a few pics i took yesterday, first up, group shot, back row BB x GG#3 and an IA, front row BC Coastal mix. No signs of sex yet on any of the BB's or C Mix

Hi mate, its only been a week since i posted but i think they have about doubled in size. I re potted 2 of the BC mix and put 2 in the ground, still no signs of sex on either the BB x GG or the BC mix.

Of the few i gifted, all are now been flowered inside under a HPS, the 1 BB i gave her is female and one of the mix is male. They got about 10days veg and have been in flower a day, the male has lots of flowers, pity ive no where to put it right now.

The IAS are flowering i think, result! The one in the pot looks further along, but it is in a sunnier position in the garden. I'll get a few pics up tomorrow.

Posted By: alecky
Date Posted: 12 June 2012 at 22:28
Well we will know for sure in next few days, it may be just a clump of pre flowers im seeing, but she's had pre-flowers the last few weeks, the bracts are off set from each other and she's taken a huge jump in size, great if she was flowering thru july and august, that's presuming we get some sunshine. The fact shes in the pot means i can lift her in and out of the greenhouse/wendyhouse when its raining.

Hi folks, so after culling the males im left with 2 BB x GG#3 and 2 BC coastal mix out of 6 seeds of each. Including the 2 IA's ive a total of 6 plants. I think the IA's are flowering, not sure, but i am sure they are all crying out for some sunshine, its official, June this year was the wettest on record in Ireland!!

From left, Barry Gibbs, Barry Gibbs, BC Mix, IA and a BC mix in the ground


And a couple of close ups of the IA above




And the other Iranian, not doing as well as the potted one but still doing ok. She is in a more shaded spot but i think the ground being so water logged is its main problem.


And despite the lack of sunshine this lilly is soldiering on!

Posted By: alecky
Date Posted: 16 July 2012 at 20:25
Plants are doing well considering the appaulling conditions, ive topped the 2 BB and BC mix that are in pots, took the grow tip off most branches hoping to get a bush effect. The potted Iranian is now in the plastic greenhouse, where it will stay till harvest, shes still flowering slowly but surely, shes around 12-13 weeks old now. The BC mix i planted in the ground seems to be just growing a main stem with very little side branches so i tied her down to help a bit more light get to the lower branches. A few pics,







The Iranian in the ground is doing ok, i worked in some granular feed to the top of the soil, but with all the rain the soil isn't getting a chance to drain and is getting waterlogged, which im sure isn't helping the plant.Its flowering thou which is a plus!




The lillies are still thriving even with the lack of sunshine

Thanks lads%3chumbs%20Up

So its about time for an update,all things considered,the plants are doing well, with most in flower, one just starting and another thats yet to fully kick in. Having  some problems with mould as expected.We have been getting great weather since beginning of August,plants are loving it!

First up the potted IA, doing great in the little greenhouse thingy and has some proper looking buds on her. I lost the top to mould and will probably lose some more, if it gets out of hand ill cut down the plant and harvest what i can.

Plant on right








And the IA in the ground,doing well now




Plant on left of greenhouse is a BB x GG#3, she has started to flower




And the rest, BB, BCMx2


One of the BC coastal mix is flowering now since beginning of august, she got some mould on her stem, down near the base.I washed the area down with a bleach mix and it seems to have done the trick.Ive got a couple of clones rooting to try and keep her around for next year.




BBxGG#3, starting to see the first few pistils form.

Hi mate, how's things? The early BCM is doing great, the weather has got a little worse, some rain almost everyday now and the temps have dropped a bit as well, but she seems unfazed by it all! No signs of mould yet either. I'm still aiming at a end of Sept finish, but who knows!?! The other BCM started to put out some pistils over the weekend.

The big BB is coming along nicely, as is the smaller one, but I think they will be out for as long as the weather allows. Nice fruity smells coming from them.

The cuts in took from the early BCM while in flower have rooted, just need them to re veg now. I'll get a few pics in the morning and post them up.

Posted By: alecky
Date Posted: 10 October 2012 at 15:02
Hi sicklehand,hows it going mate? Yeah in fact i have been busy trimming lately, mostly indoor plants though! I took down the BCM at end of sept, lost a good bit to mold,id say around a 1/3, nearly all the bigger buds on top of branches were affected. I ended up with nearly 2ozs.

To be honest i think that plant looked better than it actually was, what buds i did get are very light and fluffy. Ive smoked some already, its an ok smoke, not too strong and the flavour/taste is good, hazey/spicy taste, i think it will improve with a bit of a cure.

The 2 BB X GG#3 are doing great and at this stage not even a trace of mould, my only concern is that they are not finished, the one in the greenhouse i thought would be finished by now, on the upside we are having an unusually mild and bright October. The smells from both are lovely, mostly a strong fruity blueberry smell, the bigger one has got a bit of purple going on too, i presume from the low temps.

Cheers mate, so as usual i spoke to soon and noticed a complete branch full of mould on the plant in the greenhouse, so i cut her down yesterday. Luckily it was only on the branch, i lost zero bud to mold, delighted with that!






The other one is still out and its fattening up nicely and turning a deep purple. The smell from both is lovely, a strong sweet fruity smell.


Found some mould on her too, again only on the branch, i tried treating it with a bleach solution but it just kept spreading,so i cut the branch off. The days are still nice and theres some good weather forecast for the end of the month so shes staying out as long as the mould stays away.

Heres a few pics of the branch i cut off, i think ill get a nice yield from her.

Nice job Alecky.
I have gotta have a out door grow of some description next year as both you and Mr Sickle are the envy of everyone on here who think it is not possible to grow out doors in our climate.
Excellent plants you must be pleased?
Have a good day
