    Outdoor strain successes by region- post yours!

    Hello all!
    The "what strain should I grow in xxxxxxxxxxx?" question is asked often enough to merit an FAQ entry, but I figured this would be a good place to stick a more interactive list of strains.

    Here's the deal:
    Post up the names of strains you have grown successfully, to harvest, in your area, and give the REGION and type of landscape in which you grew them successfully. If you had failures, such as mold, post up the info for that too. Or just copy the little form thing here and fill it out for your standby outdoor strains!

    I'll give an example:

    Region: US Northeast
    Landscape: SE facing scrubby hillside
    Breeder: BOG
    Strain: SourBubble BX3
    Success/failure?: Success
    Major problem: None
    Finish date: App. October 1
    Comments: Fast finish but bud density is fluffier than the same strain grown outdoors

    Got it? Cool.
    Reminder- please don't hotlink to seed vendors.

    threw a bagseed in the corner of my florida backyard sometime in january as an experiment to prove to my girlfriend that marijuana is a 'weed' and can really grow with almost no efforts at all. No major problems except for slight yellowing in the leaves around 2 weeks before harvest(Apr27th). Probably from either salts in the dirt, or even chlorine from our close by pool. I watered her maybe 6 times in the 4.5month lifecycle, and she got maybe 6 to 7 hours of light a day.

    I was going to post pictures but its a hassle since i took them on my phone i have to email them to myself, then save, and yatta yatta yatta. anyways, its VERY hairy and has lots of trichromes on it. I definitly wish I had more info on maybe what strain it may have originated from. I cured different batches with cherry shisha, coffee shisha, and strawberry daquiri shisha. I am about to smoke a blunt of it now, so nighty night! lol

    Region: Alaska
    Landscape: Spruce Forest
    Strain: Lowryder 2
    Success/Failure: Success
    Finish Date: Mid September
    Problem(s): Rabbits ate about 1/3 of the plants
    Comments: Had to haul in my own soil because the forest soil is nutrient-less and to acidic. Also the plants that were planted with natural barriers (like fallen trees or dense brush) were not touched by the rabbits.

    Peace!

    Smallest fully flowered marijuana plant!!

    I just harvested the smallest plant ever. Total height of the plant was 6" from the root ball. Total harvest will be somewhere around a gram (dried and cured of course). I do not know the strain but it looks and smells very good. Is it a certain strain that grows like this? I grew it in the same pot as another plant and had a third in its own pot. The other two plants surpassed the little guy "Mini Me", very quickly during vegging. I almost cut it out when I induced flowering but I thought what the hell? So it spit out little white pistols. Female...cool. So I harvested right at 60 days. Trics looked good and ready even thought the plant was only 6 inches tall and the stem was thinner than a 16 penny nail. The other two plants grew perfectly normal. Anyone know why my plant was so small? Anyone ever heard of a smaller fully flowered marijuana plane? Thanks.

    i had 3 GDP clones only get 5 inches tall before the cut. they were from a medical club and obviously did not like the outdoors because they never wanted to grow

    i am pretty sure your plant didnt grow from some kind of stress

    I haven't personally grown but almost everybody says these are perfect for Australian climates.

    It is called 'Old Mother Sativa' or Mullum-Madness
    Region: Australia mostly NSW
    Landscape: Warmer, tropical type climate, low humidity
    Breeder: Mullum-Madman
    Strain: Sativa's crossed from Papua New Guinea Gold and Thailand strains. He called it Old Mother Sativa.
    Success/failure?: Success for them, been growing in the town of Nimbin for centuries.
    Major problem: Can't grow indoors, even under strictly controlled climate it just gets too big.
    Finish date: ........
    Comments: This town is the only town in Australia to celebrate weed so openly, they have awards, pubs that sell hash brownies, prohibition protest days every year etc etc

    Although I haven't grown this, or at least I don't think so, chances are one of my bagseeds was this.... All the comments about it are great and they say it's the biggest plant ever. Gets to about 20 feet I think was the biggest and it yielded 15 pounds.

    Comments: treated mold w/2 tsp soda + 2 drops liquid dish detergent in quart spray bottle. Incredable yield; i used tent pegs to tie plants horizontally.

    Comments: All same as above, with a bit more leaf mold, that i had to wash off with fingers and soda solution. About 20% less yield, but made up for it with a very citrus scent and taste

    Can you give me the Longitude of where you grew?

    Also, when in the season did you start?

    Luna, it sounds like you have 'leaf cutters' too. They're those long skinny brownish-black bugs with a split tail...about an inch or so long. They live under rocks, leaves and other ground cover but keeping the ground clear won't keep them away. They snip off the seedlings about an 1/8" from ground level leaving a tiny little stump. I use an aluminum can with the ends cut off as a barrier to keep them off of seedlings (they don't bother older plants that have already hardened their 'trunks'). Take your can with the ends cut off (a serrated steak or bread knife works best to saw off the ends) and center it over the seedling or seed if you plant directly into the ground then press gently into the ground a bit so nothing can crawl under it and it'll keep them safe from pretty much all crawling bugs but especially safe from the leaf cutters.

    Good Luck

    Region: US midwest (ohio valley)
    Landscape: west facing, open to the north and south, wooded area to the east
    Breeder: nirvana
    Strain: white widow
    Success/failure?: mixed
    Major problem: drought in august
    Finish date: App. mid-late october
    Comments: nice dense colas, nearly nothing lower down on the plant, finished at about 7 feet tall, yeilds were severly diminished due to drought (dont rely on polymer crystals to get ya through a dry spell )

    same location
    strain2: bella chaio
    success failure?: mixed
    Major problem: drought in august
    Finish Date: mid-september
    Comments: small popcorn buds all over plant, main colas were small as well,
    at time of harvest some areas of the plant were so dry i was able to pick a bud off the plant and smoke it right there , i've had much much better results with this strain indoors.

    this year im doing white widow, zae, bella chaio, and my own cross im working on that is an afghani x purple kush pollen crossed with a sativa dominant sweet tooth and another indica dominant sweet tooth that turned purple.
    these will be put outside whenever the corn fields are tall enough and the farmers aren't spiking the soil with anhydrous ammonia
