botafumeiros

Hi all ,

im going to be doing the jacks , and a botafumeiros for the comp this year .

I wonder if anyone knows any more about the botafumeiros??

The more I read the sweetseeds descrip , the more I have a feeling that this is a var primarily intended for outdoor growing .

Due to my Northerly location , and the time of year , this is not feasible , and all will be done inside.

I'm anticipating a very stretchy plant , with a lot of sc-ing etc.- Similar to the little hands ive just cut down. (I may even try to use a net for the first time).

Apparently this botafumeiros strain is a "hibrid of a bluehaze" , and the "bluehaze is DJShorts blueberry x hazeNL5".

very little info on the net .

I wonder if Tommy or anyone else can shed some light on this strain , and set my mind at rest that its possible to grow her indoors.

Cheers all

Hi mate!

I have no personal experience with this strain. However I've seen people growing it indoors in other forums and it seems to me that it is possible to grow it indoors. If the other plants you'll have side by side are shorter in structure, it is obviously going to be a bit difficult to deal with the differences between the different strains, but I suppose it can be solved with some LST or pruning, or both. I'm not sure if anyone made a grow diary over here at uk420 in last years contest, you can have a look and see for yourself. One thing is for sure, this Botafumeiros is the strain that needs more time to flower, among all the Sweet Seeds catalog strains, so you'll have to be patient ;)

Good luck for the contest, sweet smokes!

Hey Tommy ,

Thanks for the reply, and the info.

I know this plant's going to take some time ..... (10 weeks on the descrip probably equals 12 or so in reality eh..?)

I'm (relatively) confident i'll be able to do her indoors too, although i suspect cuts'll be more managable than the seed plants?

it'd be well kind if you could pm me a link to any other forums where youve seen the botafumeiros grown.. im really interested to see how anyone else managed her , and a smoke report .......

anyhow thanks for the beans

peace

Hi mate!

I sent you a PM :doh:

Yes, of course if you like your plants very mature and if you don't get lucky enough to get the quickest pheno, than it is posible that flowering may last a bit longer than what you can see in the catalog. Like with any other strain or seedbank, I guess.

I think you will be able to grow them indoors, but if you are unlucky with the phenos and have no experience with LST or pruning, then maybe they'll get a bit difficult to manage, hehehe :ouch:

You said you are going to do the jacks and a botafumeiros... If it means you will only have 1 botafumeiros and several jacks than you have not much to fear, since if the botafumeiros give you any problem you can take her out and still have many other plants to fill your closet :rofl: ...just an opinion...

Good luck, sweet smokes!
