Yes, the mods here are great. I was trying to help but @upstate should definitely get the points for this so thanks for copying the stuff over. This is much better. :v:

Very cool @Upstate! I’ve always sort of wanted those and see if i can learn some new hash techniques to make it happen. Those are definitely some 13-14 footers in those pics. Think it will take to being topped early? I’ve had ok luck with the last few sativa that I topped.

Thanks for the project. This will be a treat to have. peace

When would they have finished without the frost? We normally don’t see a hard frost until the last half of Oct, but it may be only one night, and we may not get another one until the 2nd week of Nov. It’s a crap shoot, but if a strain’s got some mold resistance, and can handle a little frost, it’d probably finish here.

Great job under adverse conditions man. Thanks for sharing these with everyone. :slight_smile:
You’re Pure OG dude. :vulcan_salute:

Awesome @Upstate , can’t wait for these. While modern strains have their benefits I’m starting to tire of them all having the same basic high.

Cant wait to finally grow the fame Malana.

I be welcome on helping you out with that…as well as the other.

I might have a place for that on a future project…you know where!

Well done! This sounds awesome. I’m down to run these the near future. I’ve got 9 feet of indoor ready to rock and roll.

It appears that someone saw fit to remove mine and another’s, name from the list and replace it with theirs, hopefully this was a mistake. I have had this happen several times and now take a picture, whenever I sign up. My brother does the same thing but mine has a time date stamp on it. This was a little over 6 hours ago


Please be careful not to erase or overwrite another’s name

Luckily there were still slots open, to re-post, mine and my brothers. I know that this was probably a mistake but, please let’s be careful. It has caused me to miss out on a seed run or 3, that I am interested in more than once. I can’t wait to give these a try outdoors. I hope that all is well with you and yours. Y’all be safe and Stay HIGH :+1:t4: :v:t4:

This was just a seed run. I had to let them go until they died to get the seeds to maturity. We had four nights in a row that got down to 28 degrees right around September 15th. Flowering completely stopped and didn’t pick up again until October. October is a nasty month where I live. By the 15th we have snow.

I do think they’d respond well to topping early. I wanted to grow them natural because I’ve always wanted to see a tall Himalayan hash plant. The picture was taken sometime in late August or early September. They grew another couple feet. I also packed the plants close together so the pollen would definitely land on something. There were two different locations. Given room, I do believe there are some phenotypes that would Branch out. Some phenotypes had less branches, some more.

They started flowering here at 42 North September 1st. You are about 6 degrees further south than me, so they should begin flowering in mid August for you, between two and three days earlier for each degree of latitude. They flower 12 to 14 weeks. Possibly some 10-week plants. Good chance they would nearly finish or finish for you. Late October to the first week of November. Also, I have noticed that plants that are well into their flowering cycle will keep on rolling through bad weather, whereas if they see Frost very early it stunts them. They would definitely finish( all of them) if allowed to grow from seed each year for several years where you are, but you would get something to finish your first year I think, too. I have read that plants will finish in a new climate the same time of year they finished in their old climate after you grow them for 7 generations outdoors… So that would be a September or October finish eventually. I’m determined to do this with these. Eventually the plants will realize they need to get their asses going earlier in the year to finish. They’ll realize " we aint in India anymore"!

Well I forsure appreciate your hard work. It’s not easy going just for seeds man. I always wanna see the buds at the end and sample the goods.

I’ll attempt to grow them at 12/12 from seed and of help them along with Flowering. I hear tho that landrace strains don’t like heavy nutes.

The only fertilizer used in the Himalayas is manure. The plants did handle quarter strength super soil, mixed with garden soil, compost, and perlite, but you would do best with fertile garden soil just like they’re used to. I have seen pictures of Himalayan hash plants grown in a coil around the outside of the container until they start to produce branches. Something to consider if you attempt this one indoors. If I don’t taste a Malana Bud within the next couple years, I will have to do them indoors too lol. I have patience, but it is limited! More than likely this summer will be another attempt with Malana at the same location. If seeds from last year germinate on their own at that outdoor location, and I think they will, I’ll try again. If they don’t, I will attempt a faster flowering Himalayan variety at that location, and I will try Malana closer to sea level. They were grown above 2000 ft last year. I knew they wouldn’t finish, but I did think they would get further along. In a good year I should be able to produce thousands of seeds.
