Looking for a suitable strain
Posted 12 August 2019 - 07:41 PM
Here is the parameters: it's an outside grow, along creek bottom. Will be in large holes using compost and fertilized w/Neptune's Harvest as needed, maybe bay guano for flowering. Sativa or sativa-dominant hybrid. Extreme heat (100°+), very low humidity (<20%) from mid-June through early September, chance of frost, then 80's until mid-October. Under trees/bushes ceiling height of 7 ft. average. Will be shielded I shadow of hill after 2pm. I am liking the Satori from Mandala, but really want a feminized that can handle the heat stress. WW had worked, but Super Silver Haze and Himalayan Gold feminised had hermophradites. Anybody have personal experience or knowledge on feminised strains that would do well? Need a higher thc level than Northern Lights.
I know, I know, the extreme heat is exactly the stress that tends to most upset the feminised ones, but still, some do better of course.
Suggestions (including ways to combat the low humidity...creek dries up by this time, every year) and seed sources are requested. The strains in my Judy Memorial Grow would be preferred, to do another grow dedicated to her. All but the Blue Dream were doing well (none were at the budding stage, so hadn't been able to evaluate for hermophradites before crop was busted.

I am a fan of the green crack and blue dream outdoors due to their yield potential. Both can be tasty when done correctly and both are proven, outdoor, commercial strains. I believe they are relatively mold and mildew resistant considering I have never received a tainted bud from these strains and have never seen one out at the farm but I can not say for sure...
As for the risk of hermaphrodites... I think you run this risk with any feminized seeds but that it is a relatively infrequent occurrence.
The durban, mentioned above, is a 100% sativa landrace strain... I love my sativa dominants but I often prefer a hybrid that is dominant rather than a pure sativa.

Look for an equatorial sativa, Something landrace or a hybrid from one of those hot areas where the sun really beats down. Creek beds areas here are humid as F even when dry. miserable hot n humid .
If you are in the USA and interested in something available from a domestic source pm me. I can give ya a couple places to look. might see something you like.
Might have to do a lil research on some place like https://en.seedfinder.eu/ to get the background on what your looking at more completely than as advertised.
