Strainly empowers growers, but also intends to empower breeders… or aspiring breeders. If you have been growing for some time and are now considering breeding your own seeds, designing and building an effective and safe breeding space can be an intimidating endeavour. In this article, Professor Q from Aficionado French Connection will describe the breeding setup they use to produce some of their lines… Ready?Read more “How to design your own professional breeding space?”
You now know how and why canna-biodiversity is at stake. In our Breeder’s Rights and the Preservation of Cannabis trilogy, we exposed the mechanisms potentially threatening this biodiversity and introduced alternative concepts, such as open source. In Open Source Breeding – Part 2, we gave you some options to start open sourcing your genetics. We have done our best to gather information and initiate a movement. Now, it’s your turn to make change happen…Read more “Open Source Cannabis Breeding – Part 3”
During the vegetative phase, you can use techniques that will maximize yield for a given limited space. You might have heard of ScroG or SoG before. But what does that mean? What’s the difference between these two techniques? This is what we’ll cover in this article…Read more “Growing cannabis: SCROG vs. SOG”
You have successfully germinated your seeds and are now seeing new leaves developing on your plant. You officially entered the vegetative, or commonly called “growth” phase. In this article, we’ll give you some general guidance and tips to ensure your plants develop well before the blooming phase.Read more “Growing cannabis: the vegetative phase”
When looking for genetics on Strainly, you might have noticed the filter “Flowering”. In addition of the flowering time ranges, a there’s an option called “Auto-Flowering”… What does that mean? How do Auto-Flowering strains differ from others? This is what we’ll cover in the below article…Read more “Autoflowering strains explained”
We recently added a useful filter to more precisely search genetics on Strainly. It’s called “Varietal type” and is meant to capture (and filter by) the type of varietal listed on Strainly. By “Varietal type” we mean the way the varietal was born/created. When breeding, different approaches are possible, whether mother nature is in command or humans get involved… But what are these varietal types? This is what we’ll cover in the below article…Read more “Cannabis Genetics Terminologies”
In case you had missed it, Strainly allows you to offer genetics under the form of tissue cultures. While seeds and clones have been quite common starting material among growers, micro propagation is usually less familiar. Fortunately, William Roberts, Researcher / Agronomist at Dark Heart Nursery, is sharing his knowledge with us in this article. William has been with Dark Heart Nursery for 7 years and tissue culturing cannabis since 2014! Happy reading…Read more “Cannabis Tissue Culture: Present and Future”
Canna-biodiversity is a very important cause if you ask us at Strainly. In our Breeder’s Rights and the Preservation of Cannabis trilogy, we exposed the mechanisms potentially threatening this biodiversity and introduced alternative concepts, such as open source. In Open Source Breeding – Part 1, we explained the principles of collaborative economy and open innovation through copyleft. In this article we’ll give you tools to apply the theory.
