Bud Mold On Cannabis Indica Plants

It’s true. All the Cannabis Indica plants have an unacceptable amount of bud mold on them here on Holmgrown Farm. This is not an unexpected result of 2 hurricanes that fell apart here on the big island of Hawaii and an extended streBud Mold On Cannabis Indica Plantstch of humidity at 85% with over 50 inches of rain in a very short period of time. Cannabis Indica just is not a fan of these conditions. I know this because this is not the first time I’ve grown this Early Skunk strain here. It is the first time bud mold overtook the plant so early. I was looking for early skunk, not early bud mold.

This strain is from Sensi Seeds and is called Early Skunk. It is an Indica dominant strain that’s 35% Sativa / 65% Indica. When the weather is drier here, she mostly gives huge harvests in 55 days before bud mold really shows its ugly face. Truth be told, this strain will always mold before being really finished. It could use another week past the 55 days. It’s just that even in drier times it still molds. Holmgrown Farm grows it because it makes wonderful edibles and its a super evening smoke.

Bud Mold On Cannabis Indica Plants TooBefore I get a message telling me to grow this cannabis Indica in a greenhouse or undercover let me tell you that I have grown it both ways. Using a greenhouse or under a clear tarp only changes one thing. Undercover, I get powdery mildew in addition to bud mold. I have tried super ventilation of a greenhouse, fans moving the air under tarps. Even have done the deal where you take the tarps down on sunny days and put it back up as the sunsets. It really does not matter or change results. I will not use some kinda weird stuff to try and stop the powdery mildew. I will not spend a whole day wiping down all the leaves trying to keep the powdery mildew at bay. I’ve got 20 plants. Who has the time to wipe plant leaves all day every day?

I must be clear. Holmgrown Farms is in the center of an old growth Ohia Rain Forest. High humidity is just an environmental condition one has to expect as it cant be changed. I guess I could clear all the trees away and have Holmgrown Farm in the middle of a cleared out patch of destroyed Ohia forest. I could never do it. First, the Ohia are dying off at an alarming rate already due to Rapid Ohia Death Disease. I cannot contribute to the loss of Ohia. I personally just have too much respect for the Aina.

Ok, I am going to conclude this now. I hope you have found some use for this Bud Mold On Cannabis Indica Plants post. Aloha

New Cannabis Seeds Fell Outta The Sky

Cannabis Seeds 3
It was a shocking day here for us from Holmgrown Farm. All the excitement started when I went into town to get a smoothie and as I stood slurping my smoothie suddenly the rain stopped, and the clouds parted, then a ray of sunlight came through a rainbow blocking my ability to see momentarily. As my eyes adjusted to the light I noticed on my car across the street a padded envelope shrouded in a curious green light.

I was strongly drawn to the mysterious package shrouded in green light. The excitement crossing the street was so overwhelming that I did not notice that I was crossing in front of oncoming traffic. I was being pulled across the street to my car by the mysterious package. I must have appeared to be a crazy person because traffic stopped short of hitting me without blowing their horns or even flipping me the international “you are a jerk sign” using their middle finger. Maybe I got stink eye, I don’t know. I was focused solely on the mysterious package.

As I put my hands on the padded envelope the curious green light faded away and I faintly hear Estimated Prophet by The Grateful Dead playing in my ear. I knew this was some kinda magical event. I started to tremble as I fumble with getting this mysterious paddCannabis Seeds 5ed envelope open while remaining some semblance of calm.  After dropping the envelope 3 times in what can only be described as a frenzy, I see what is in the envelope and all the excitement evaporated in the blink of an eye.

After shredding the envelope like 6 yo kid getting a Christmas present. All there was in this mysterious padded envelope is a box that said Sports Supports. What the heck? Why so much drama over something that’s not even my size. I got huge hands. There is absolutely no way this is gonna fit my had. Depression hits me hard at that moment. I guess I realized that it’s not an envelope with a million dollars in it…

Maybe its some kind of magic thing that when I put it on, I get superpowers or something. I open the box while looking for a trash can to throw it in. It then occurs to me that maybe I am being punk’d.  They got me on some kinda candid camera show or something. I glance around and did not see anything that could be a camera crew in hiding. This is where I start to play it cool waiting for a group to jump out and tell me this is all a setup and hit me up to sign a release.

I pull pulled out of its box the folded up support and noticed I could only get 3 fingers in the end where I was to put my whole hand. WTF?! I think to myself. The support unfolds and in doing so a thing with bubble wrap around it falls out on to my foot. “Oh no, what’s this?” I Cannabis Seeds 4think to myself as I awkwardly bend over to collect it. This thing was thick and I could not help but squeeze it a little. The little bit of tape holding the bubble wrap closed breaks open and a bunch of plastic bags of cannabis seeds pop out. The excitement returned instantly and realizing cannabis seeds is what I had, threw it all in my car and drove back to the farm just as fast as I could without killing anyone or breaking any laws. I was only 4 miles from town and can normally get back to the farm from that spot in 5mins. Today though, it was the longest ride back to the farm from the town I have ever experienced. it was only 5 mins but sure did feel like an hour.

Upon examination, I was very surprised to find what could very well be the ideal strains of cannabis seeds for this area of the farm.

That’s it. you now know the story about how New Cannabis Seeds Fell Outta The Sky today on me.

First Post

So, here it is my first post. I guess I should start where I started. After moving from Europe where I had lived for 14 years and getting my Hawaii Medical Cannabis card, or permission slip if you like. I was in my front yard and a bunch of cannabis seeds fell outta the sky on the house and I was set for starting this adventure.

Starting to grow cannabis outdoors here in Hawaii was a real learning experience. The hardest part for me to learn (get over) is that no matter the time of year when your plants are put outside they will start to flower. On the mainland, you put your plants out in the spring and harvest in the fall. It really does take some time to get used to this year-round thing. The good part is that I have found when getting an idea of how long your plants will take, take the indoor time frame the breeder suggests to get an idea of just how long before you harvest outdoors. If the breeder says indoors the strain you are trying to grow takes 65 days to mature, its a pretty good guess that 70 days after you put the plant outside it will be ready to harvest

Here in Hawaii, we are blessed with a climate that allows us to grow cannabis year round. though admittedly how much work growing depends on where on the islands you are. For example, Holmgrown Farm is on the windward side of the big island of Hawaii. In my area, there is almost no topsoil at all. Here at Holmgrown Farm, we have zero dirt and only have lava. Not having any dirt kinda means digging a hole and planting a clone is outta the question.

Another issue growing here on Holmgrown Farm on the big island of Hawaii is the humidity. It’s almost always at least 75% but can be 90% for days on end with rain pretty much every day. With this kind of humidity, the strains that can be grown here to full maturity is not large. Anything will grow here, but not everything will grow well. If you are trying to grow Hashplant or something with more than`30% indica in its genetics it most likely is not gonna grow too well. That is not to say it won’t grow, its more that it will mold before it finishes. I have found that sticking with landrace equatorial strains for the best result in getting plants that reach full maturity without mold issues.

Hawaii Cannabis 35gal trash cans cannabis growing in 35gal trash cans

Because in the ground was not possible (or is it?) pots were the way to go. But even with big pots, it was taking a lot of potting soil. Started to grow in 35gal. trash cans. It produced great grows but was work to keep the soil in good shape. You could grow 6 big plants in them, of course, soil still needed to be changed as it just became a root ball with little dirt. Also that 35gal. trash can would get pretty hot sometimes on sunny days. They also dry out pretty quick if we don’t have a shower in a couple days once the plants get bigger in size.

For the past 2 years, I have been growing in the ground. Really! I grow all my plants in the ground organically using phenomenal native Hawaiian topsoil. I know you’re confused because I just said I had not topsoil and only lava. Well, ever hear the expression, “if you need something designed for you, hire a stoner!”. People who grow and or use cannabis will create specialized equipment to smoke and grow it from common household items. It’s just true. That’s what its like to grow cannabis here in Hawaii. You need to be creative, and luckily I am!

Here at Holmgrown Farm with the help of a jackhammer, we blasted out the lava to make garden beds 3 feet deep. This has really really worked out well. It is just like growing in a raised bed but it’s in the ground so it gets rainfall to help keep watered well. By simply adding a touch of lime powder, cow manure, compost, and bone meal I can keep the plants growing fabulously. Plus, I have the added bonus of not needing to replace potting soil. Just till it up and over and plant again. every 6 months I have to re-add manure, bone meal, and lime but it’s gotta be till after each harvest anyway. easy peasy.

That’s about all to share for now. First posts are always the hardest one to do. The only thing left to do is add one more set of photos of the buds, We all wanna see buds, no?
