ommon grow time is 3 to
4 months. All this is dependent on the strain that you choose. Pure
Sativa can run anywhere into the 6 - 9 month bracket. Indica can
flower in 6 weeks. As you can image a Sativa/Indica plant will fall into
the 2 - 4 month flowering period.

What is propagation?
Propagation: 1 The action of breeding or multiplying by natural
processes; procreation, generation, reproduction. 2 The action of
spreading an idea, practice, etc., from place to place. 3 Increase in
amount or extent; enlargement; extension in space or time.
Propagation is 'The Grow'. However most people treat
propagation as the actual events occurring between the planting of the
seed and the transplant of that seedling to the main grow environment.
Here we will treat propagation as the entire process of growing from
seed to harvest. Propagation also includes the logistics of the grow.
So what are you going to do? Are you going to buy a batch of
10 seeds and grow them all in one go? Are you going to then kill the
males and just smoke the females? Are you going to keep the males
and produce more seeds from the females? How many seeds can a
female plant produce? Should I plant my 10 seeds in one go? What
should I do to guarantee that all my seeds will grow? These are the
questions that you should be asking before you begin to grow and this
is where propagation logistics comes into play. The answers depend
largely on the size of your grow area and what your budget is.
Let’s say we have about $200/£180 to spend on seeds. We can
buy an expensive strain like a G13 cross and then we can grow the
G13 and produce more seeds from it. We can get anything between
100 and 2000 seeds depending on plant size and grow conditions. If
we grow this season for 4 months and at the end produce a lot of seeds
then we may never need to buy seeds for this strain again.
There is something else we can do called - CLONING.
Figure 3.1 - Here are some clones by Slowhand.
This is a technique whereby we can grow a number of plants
and select a good female. Then we can take cuttings from that female
mother plant and grow these cuttings into new plants. Clones always
keep the same sex and vigor of the mother plant. It is also possible to
create a garden of plants that will last for decades through cloning
from a single female mother plant. Cloning is discussed in detail in a
For the new grower it is advised that you buy 10 seeds and
only germinate 3 the first time followed by another 3 the following
week followed by the last 4 in two weeks after that. This will allow you
some degree of experimentation as you may fail on your first attempt
to germinate the seeds because of lack of any previous cannabis
For people who have germinated seeds once before in the
past, it is advised th

In this reaction (Chart 1
I would suggest Sensi Seed's "Shiva Skunk" (NL#5 X SK#1). Very close nodes, sweet, fragrant smoke. Great
yield and it will finish in about 55 days. Very high calyx to leaf ratio. Great resin production. I grew this strain
for 4 years in a SOG format and I was very, very impressed. Very easy to grow, cloning is a breeze. Only
problem I had is that after about 3 years the high started to get a little weaker and the yields did go down
slightly. It just seemed to lose some of its vigor. So if you used it for 2 years or so, it could very well be what
you are looking for." -imposter
“The most potent I have had to date is probably Shiva Skunk, a close relative of Silver Pearl. This variety is
hallucinogenic. Not to be smoked if you have to operate any machinery within the next several hours.” – Hyde
