Chitrali - Hindu Kush

123 posts in this topic

outdoors in Spain

surprised by how few people have picked up this strain yet, especially considering how rare it is in its native home, and how hard it is to get hold of

I suspect a lot of people wait until they see pretty photos, so I am hoping someone will have some this harvest season

will have to get a better camera for next time I go collecting

I'm very interested in this cultivar. Is the stock at seedsman fresh?

Also, I've seen they now have Sinai in stock. Will they be get manipuri as well? Or Nanda Devi?

Thanks

Chitrali is the freshest stock of all. They have had manipuri and Nanda devi in the past. Nam will have to answer if they will be coming back. I popped 9 chitrali from seedsman with 100 percent sucessful and am happy with the plants so far.

I grown out the nanda, sinai and now in the process with chitrali. I would reccomend them all for different reason. Manipuri will be grown this winter.

Hi @@SoloToker - yes, the Chitrali stock is from plants harvested in October 2015

They have just got some Manipuri and other strains in too - I recommend grabbing some of that and the Kumaoni

How about an update on those 9 chitrali?

See my "winter seed run" thread. All sorts of updates in there. One from a day or two ago. I'll post some photos on this thread tonight so more easily seen by all.

My taller lankier outdoor Chitrali. From stem rubbing I think this one will have a diesely fumy smell to it.

20160613 194653

My shorter outdoor Chitrali. Less smell, kinda sweet. Think it will be the better yeilder.

20160612 141101

My short indoor seeded Chitrali. Thick Fumy (kinda diesel) smell. Medium resin (less than taller two plants) and high leaf to bud ratio.

A tallerer Chitrali seed plant. Not as tall as the tallest one, but fits in the same pheno. A sweet resin nuetral smell. Similar to some Nandas and malana smells I have incurred. Sufficient resin content. Low leaf to bud ration. Denser buds than the tallest one showing next.

Tallest lankiest plant. Hard time standing on its own (but grown in one gallon pots, so sort of expected for tall plants). Fluffiest buds but it put on the best resin later in its life. The smell has evolved and is complex and confusing. It is an equal mix of a "herbal minty", "Pine" and "Fresh Oranges". I like it alot.

Tent shot showing the height of the tallest two in comparison to RSC Lebanese (middle) and Ace's Paki Chitrali Kush (left faceing the pic).
Overall I like this plant, and feel there are some definite jewels to be found if you pop a lot of seeds. I am excited to see what the outdoor plants show, as my one gallon seed runs are not going to show a plants vigour and overall capabilities.

So, is anyone interested in visiting Chitral themselves? And volunteer teaching in schools there?

It's an incredibly beautiful, friendly and safe region of the Hindu Kush.

If you are interested, we can put you in touch with teachers in Chitral who are looking for foreign teachers for their schools.

The main place I can put you in touch with specialises in providing free and very low cost education to the poorest families in the area. It's a very simple school and the teachers are really great people.

Let me know if you are interested.

The video shows Ashwina, a student from one of the schools whose dream is to be a doctor.

Thanks!

Love your last post @@namkha shows kindness and compassion, I hope to meet you one day as you also sound like a great person to talk genetics.

I will have to try a few of your seed collection one day, been a while I tried new landrace plants.

keep up the good work.

My taller outdoor Chitrali plant has been shooting pink pistils for the last week or so. Should be a beautiful plant when it it full flower with pink pistils.

yep - the Chitrali can go up to 4m potentially, depending on the plant

somewhere on the internet there are photos of some Mriko had outdoors in France that went to those kind of heights, and flowered well because there was a heatwave

Well, I got home from a week long work trip and my 8' tall Chitrali is glistening with pink pistils. I knew she had some in her, but full bore now. A beautiful plant. Not only her, but one of my Ace Paki kush plants has the same pink pistils, just less colorful.

On a side note, I gave my father in law some malana seeds. he is an old hippy living in some high mountains. he sprouted some and got one female. He has never worked plants like this in the last 20-30 years at least. In his words "What is this weird strain you gave me!?! He has some learning to do about these native/unworked plants.

The Chitrali Pink Pistils

The Malana plant grown high up in mountains, and ace pink pistils.

Mainly wanted to highlight the colorful Chitrali, but why not share the other two. I feel the daylight does the pink pistils no justice. I will take some night photos with a flash later on.
