Highland Thai And Kerala

147 posts in this topic

corky, I've had a thai plant on the go from seed, it's getting tall, just like yours, exhibits lemony smell and is growing fast!!! I have, however had it on 18/6 light and it loves it and every day i check it, it's gotten bigger. i know for sativas like this a 12/12 or less is suggested,...but I'm growing haze crosses and indicas at the same time, and not too fussed what happens to the thai, even though it is a really beautiful plant,....will probably donate to a friend. What I have noticed it white bumps protruding from the lower stem that seem to slowly be getting bigger, they are still small. smaller than a pencil tip, let's say. D'you know what that's all about per chance?,...sorry if this is off topic. Mestizo

I believe that those little white bumps at the bottom of the stem may be

where roots would form if the plant was covered with soil at these sites.

I have noticed bumps like that on cannabis and tomato plants when I

have sprayed water on their stems to often near the soil surface. So

my guess is that's what they are. Root initiation sites. Cover a few

with soil and you'll probably see roots developping after a few days

or a week. A picture would be helpfull. Before you give it to a friend,

you could take a clone and maybe cross it with another plant.

Yeah, just what I thought. If you cover them with soil they will produce roots.

I've had that before on other plants. If the plant gets repotted later on and those

bump get covered root will appear there.It nothing to worry about.

Finally, some Highland Thai from the first seeds started on October 7,2009

are starting to show sex. I hope these stay as males and don't go hermie on

me. :wink: :ouch:

Time will tell.

More Highland Thai from the first batch.

post-43977-1258312642_thumb.jpg

In this one you can see more male flowers in the top, like a bunch of grapes.

The Kerala are just making small branches right now. They are behind in size and sex development.

But they are much further at making small branches. I hope that if this hybrid that I want to make carries

both the vigour of the Highland Thai and the bushy trait from the Kerala. It will take lots of time to figure

this out though. They are still in the 16 ounce cups. I will wait at least another 2 weeks before transplanting

anything. I have a real good feeling that if the Highland Thai were now planted in a pot bigger than 8 inches

that they would grow very high.

I find that the plants are starting to smell a little. It's not a strong smell and it doesn't

smell like the ususal smell that I'm used to having with cannabis. The Highland Thai

have a lemon smell when I rub them and the Kerala I can't comment yet. It's not

like anything else I've grown.

Well, thus far, 4 male Highland Thai have made some balls and will probably

release pollen in the next week or so. The others are slower and most of the

rest of The Highland Thai come from he second batch. They are basically

single stalk. Maybe if they were grown in a bigger pot they would grow

taller and eventally make branches. For that, I 'll need a greenhouse.

I'll try and save some pollen for future use.

The Kerala are still very short, but at least some have made some branches.

Maybe the Kerala being from a more southern location than the Highland Thai

need an extra 2 weeks or so to show sex. Next time, I will know to start the

more southern plant first. It make sense now. Oh well, that's my advice to

those who try to breed two different types of landraces.

Note: I may have to save some Highland Thai pollen and pollinate a Kerala

female or two. For the time being, I'm not ready to make male clones

of the Highland Thai. So if the Highland Thai all flower well before the

Kerala I make have to go to plan B. Which is make pure Highland Thai

seeds and pure Kerala seeds. With a hybrid of a Male Highland Thai and

a female Kerala. I would prefer to use the Male Kerala and a female

Highland Thai but we can't get all we want. Time will tell what will

happen. I'll keep you posted. More pictures will come when thing

look more promising.
