Hello namkha,

I am very interested in your Keralan strain and I am thinking in a cross with your Nepalese but I have a question about the flowering time of the Kerala.

I only cultivate outdoor and I am afraid that, in my region, plants will not survive until february even if they are very mould resistant. Winter are not very cold (5°C / 41°F on average with some frozen days) but are quite humid.

So, I would like to know if you have noticed any early phenotype in this line which will be better appropriated for Nothern Growers.

Thank you very much for your help !

It would be nice growing a pure tropical landrace in a temperate area.

I grew the Lebanese last year outdoors and they did wonderfully.

Check my grow fo details.

I just finished growing Kerala and Highland Thai a few months ago.

I really liked the branches and leaves on the Kerala. It wants to be

a bush. Mine were grown in 16 ounce cups from start to finish. Since

I was doing this indoors and was scared of creating giant trees indoors.

My Kerala only grew to about 1 1/2 foot tall in such small pots.

So I can tell you that they can be managed if you want. I only grew

them to make seeds and wasn't into the weed thing. So size didn't

matter. Next time though watch out.

You'll need to use a bigger container to get any nice yield when

you transplant them outdoors.

I think your best bet, would be to grow them in 4 inch pots indoors

for about 2 weeks. Then send them into flowering with 12 hours of light

for 6 weeks and transplant them outdoors at the end of June in a very

sunny area in a least 5 gallons of good soil. Try to stay organic for best

results. Sativas grow crazy on chemicals and burn easily. Since they

would have been flowering for 6 weeks by the time you put them

outdoors they would hopefully stay in the flowering mode and

allow you to finish them by late September or early October.

This timetable will give you an idea of what I would do.

May 1st to May 14 = 2 weeks of Indoor Vegetative Growth

May 15 to June 1st =2 weeks of Indoor Flowering

All Of June =4 weeks of Indoor Flowering

And Then

All Of July =4 weeks of Outdoor Flowering

All Of August =4 weeks of Outdoor Flowering

All Of September =4 weeks of Outdoor Flowering

This way you would get a total of 18 weeks of flowering by October 1st.

I would also feed them the last time on August 31st and then clean them

out with just water to get a nice clean burning ganja worthy of your best

efforts.

I know if I ever grow them outdoors this is what I would do.

A greenhouse would surely be of great help in doing pure

Landrace Sativas in Northern Areas for at least two reasons.

Those reasons being that the tropical sativas like warm weather

and it may be possible to darken the greenhouse to speed up

the flowering period. I was using about 11 hours at the end to

finish my Kerala and Highland Thai fast. Of course combined

with the small containers the low light period it cost me in yield

for sure. But at least you now know that it can be done with

a little effort.

Good Luck

Hi Namkha, this strain you offer looks very intriguing, is it the most potent, clearest energetic sativa that you offer on your catalogue atm? i will look into it and make it a priority to grow this strain, once i'm able to get a grow up and running.

I was wondering, could i get away finishing it off by starting 12/12 indoors for maybe 6 wks, plant it out by mid aug and get it to finish by end oct at 50N photoperiod wise? what conditions does this strain enjoy? would it finish off properly with a little bit of cold towards the end of flowering since it is a highland strain, if there is a bit of sunny weather? or will the plant toally freeze on flowering growth once the temps hit 5C like many other tropical sativas?

edit: i just saw it's no longer on the catalogue, will it make a re-appearance?

Hi Ganjabrother

the Kerala may make another appearance, but I can't make any promises about when --- I'd love for it to always be on the catalogue, but it is a very, very slow seller --- the closest I know of now is the Kerala x Haze hybrid originating with Sam Skunkman's work e.g. Indian Haze from Seedsman or whatever Flying Dutchman have called theirs (Kerala Mist or something?)

I'm actually quite surprised it's not selling better. I guess people are more familiar with names like thai and nepal. from personal experience with ohaze x kerala I rank the type of high on the very top, very motivating stuff. +++
