Hi,

I'm in the middle of my next bloom ride... Thanks for stopping by and feel free to make comments or suggestions.

Has anyone out there grown the strain Poison Afghan before? It's a very sativa Poison Durban from Africa crossed with an Afghani Indica. It's been 21 days since they started showing flowers (day 32 of 12/12) and this plant is really putting on the goo and the buds are looking like they are rolled in sugar already... the trichs are going way out on the leaves... nice!

Here are some pics of my Poison Afghan... I'm growing organically with Subcool's Super Soil mix and I only feed them water most of the time and twice during flowering with Liquid Karma for humic/fulvic acids and molasses or sweet to feed the beneficial colonies to help keep the soil stay active.

Happy Growing!:cool:

Hi & Thanks for the props R999 & nobogart...

I'm using a 1K Quantum dimmable digital switchable ballast. I run it at 1K with a Hortilux HPS most of the time but back it down to 75% (750w) or even 50% (500w) if the temps get up around 100º outside and humid. I also have a 6 bulb, 4 ft. T5 fixture with 4 red and 2 blue lamps as a side fill too.

Seeya!:cool:

HIya Zipster Flipster...

I hope all is well and you're not sweating it out too bad up yonder! :eek: You've more than likely smoked some Afghani or Afghani cross weed many times as it's a much used building block for many classic Indica strains. The Mazar plant I just grew is Afghani. Kush weed strains are Afghani from the war-torn Kush mountain region of Afghanistan along the Pakistan border where Bin Laden was hiding in his cave. Afghani weed is the classic short, bushy, Xmas tree looking plant that has a quick finish from adapting to the temperate mountain regions. It often has a very hashy rich flavor and Afghanistan is one of the regions in the world known for hand rolled hash that goes back centuries or farther... Afghani has a very heavy, sedated type of stone. Great for meds, pain relief, bedtime... When I smoke Afghani I'll often wake up on the couch with ashes all over my shirt and the joint on my lap or the floor and I'll barely make it to bed without stopping by the fridge for a snack but somehow I manage...;)

So... you take the most classic of indicas and combine it with the sativa genetics of the Poison Durban to get a Poison Afghan. It's a bit more lanky than a classic indica but still has pretty solid stems and a leaf to calyx ratio and bud structure more like an indica although I remember that Poison Durban produces very chunky hard buds for a sativa.

Peace!:cool:

HI MP friends! :ciao:

Well I've FINALLY done it. I've finally grown what I consider some ULTRA dank bud... The genetics in this pheno are incredible and I can't wait to smoke some and try it out. These pic's are at day 65 of 12/12 and the trichs are mostly cloudy with maybe a few % amber... I'm going to give it another week and check them again but she'll probably be ready next weekend I'm guessing.

Sorry it's been so long for me to get off my keester and take some half decent pics. I've made a few half hearted attempts with the HPS on and the martian colors just didn't do the plants justice. Some of these pics turned out pretty good... I used a halogen lamp for a spotlight but I need to get some other type of light for better pics... As you can see from the earlier photos this pheno laid on the trichs early and often... and they keep coming on... When I brush up against this stuff the more intense piney industrial odor comes out of this organic bud... The purple started coming on a few weeks ago and the fall colors are amazing. This isn't sold as a 'purple' strain so who knows... maybe I've got some kind of deficiency but the one thing this plant is NOT deficient on is dankness...

Enjoy!:cool:

Thanks Dutch & 2Dog...

You know what? A lot of it I'll hand props to the strain. I started this in slightly amended FFOF soil and then I transplanted it to a new soil mix I'm now using (Subcool Supersoil) and I've got a WW that looks good right next to it but it's nowhere near as dank I'm doing the same exact thing. imho, growing chops will get you ready for when the ONE comes along... But it's just as much if not more of a matter of genetics and finding that special pheno within a strain. I'm very impressed with the 3 strains I've grown that came from clones that a friend got from a friend who ordered the seeds from highgradeseeds.com... A Canadian seedbank... This Poison Afghan takes the cake though... Ridiculous.

Peace!:cool:

Thanx again but my thumb started off pretty black when I first started playing with plants years ago. There's really no *magic* to it other than this mighty magical herb...;) I've said it before... The first million hours of growing are a b****(female dog)... After that it gets easier... :p

At about 30 days into 12/12... I don't like to transplant once they are flowering hard but Sub soil takes a month of cooking before it's ready for use and my garden schedule didn't line up quite right and I was buggin to give Subby's mix a whirl... So... I put it in the new soil at 30 days in a 10 gal container and have only fed it water with occasional waterings with Cal/Mg, BMO Super Plant Tonic (beneficial inoculant and organic stimulator), and some Botanicare Sweet for carbos. This is my first round with PA but I also have a WW pheno I haven't grown before either and it had the same start, transplant and flowering time and it's at least a month away from finishing up cuz it's just starting to put on the trichs and get a 'finished' look to the calyxes but is flowering profusely and not really slowing down much yet... As good as it's gone with the PA this first time around I really look forward to flowering some clones that I can give an easier ride along the way and tweak in a few canopy management techniques... The 'lazy lollipop' technique worked pretty well to keep a canopy full of well developed medium sized buds. If I'm really rigid and train them down to just 4 tips I'm much more likely to have problems with bud rot due to the bud density so this works out much better.

Happy Growing!:cool:

Hey bud...

I always take clones and keep them behind when I put plants into flowering. TOO many I wish I would haves over the years cured me of that. Re-veg is such a slow process and it's just easier if you stay on top of keeping some form of your flowering plants in veg mode whether it's a mommy or a 4" clone... The beat goes on...

Hello again!

Well it was time to take the knife to my Poison Afghan plant last night. I harvested at 69 days of 12/12 with 30% amber trichs. This plant finished up very nice and was very stable with no hermie issues OR bud rot... Yeah!

SO here are some pics just before harvest... I follow up with some trimmed and dried bud pics in a week or so... I removed most of the buds from the main colas to inspect for bud rot but I still have some good sized bud tips drying...

If you didn't get enuf Poison Afghan bud porn... One of the best and MAYBE the best bud pic is over in the submissions thread for Bud Pic of the Month... :rolleyes:
