This quote is from Barneys website:

 

Dr Grinspoon Cannabis Seeds

Type: Feminized Weed Strain

Dr. Grinspoon strain by Barneys Farm

 

A strain named in honour of an amazing Cannabis advocate, researcher and author, Dr Lester Grinspoon. This is a pure heirloom Sativa which grows tall and thin.

 

This plant requires a longer flowering time, but when mature the colas resemble compact green and reddish brown beads. These loosely hang on thin stems, the buds give a lemon and sumac scent and produce a light smoke with tangy tropical fruit aromas. Dr. Grinspoon strain offers an old school Sativa of the highest order, which gives a strong, long lasting, energetic and cerebral high.

@astonoiler I know that an "heirloom" strain is actually the genetics from a landrace.  What I don't know is what landrace it is.  Let me know as soon as you find out.

I germinated 4 of the 10 seeds. One of the sprouts lost its head. Another only sprouted a small cone of a root and that was it. Two good sprouts will be going in seed starter.

I forgot to water them before I went to bed.

I hope they both survive.

@cookiegrow thanks for the sympathy and the wish of luck, however, I know it had a little bit to do with me. 

Perhaps I could have saved the one that lost its head by putting it into seed starter a day sooner.  If I were a little more careful, I might have watered them when I got up in the middle of the night to take a piss.

I feel like I am slipping sometimes.  I remember getting a 10 pack of seeds and working them for two weeks just to get them all to sprout.

I just had to jump out of bed this morning and check on the new born. Sprouts need more time in the paper towels and everyone looked happy to see the water sprayer.

Nice your off to a good start 🙂

You might need to set your containers in something or else put some tape round them so no light gets to the roots when they reach the sides. Good luck with the reast of the grow man 👍

@stootie They are all currently inside this "Super Sprouter" that has some sides to it.  I plan to limit their time in this seed starter to 30 days or less.  Not to worry. They will be going into red Solo cups soon enough.  Most seedlings really like the humidity that the water produces with the heat pad underneath.

This seed starter is readily available at the store, however, it does cost money.  To keep contamination down to a minimum, if something dies in it, then it gets thrown out.  I use the bottom from half liter water bottles as seed starter container in order to cut down on costs.

I prefer to save my starter plugs for clones, however, I have used plugs to start seeds before in desperate situations.  In order to save a few pennies, I will put my seed sprouts into seed starter strait from the wet paper towel.  Burpee brand has stuck on me with their 2-2-2 NPK values that are friendly to seedlings.

Every morning has been very exciting.  I just can't wait to jump out of bed to check on my plants.

20240323 132922

Well now, look at that.  We have more sprouts to go from wet paper towels to seed starter.

What a crazy and mysterious sativa strain that this grow is turning out to be.  Looks like we get six out of the ten.  Shame about loosing two like I did.  This could have been eight out of ten.  Then there is the last two...

 

20240324 182946

 

Two of the ten seeds only had a cone of a tap root develop.  Six out of ten is not real good.  I originally wanted to save some for another time.  Well, so much for that idea.  I plan to separate these six into separate grows somehow, someway.

@superc oh man I've been trying to get some dr grinspoon for over a decade their always out of stock. Stoked to see how these work ill be following your diary for sure! I have smoked it before in early 2000 my guy who supplied us was very skeptical about it and gave us a sample because he was embarrassed by the look of it we had no idea this cultivar existed and so when we hit it in the bong I knew right away it was in fact cannabis it tasted great and got me nice and toasted maybe even roasted but it looks so weird nobody wanted to buy it .... those days weed would be hard to find consistently so I always got 2 kinds the take it or leave it kind... if it got you lit I was all in... a very unique and interesting cultivar for sure I would like to also run freakshow it's also one of those weird Ones you could probably get away with growing in your backyard because it looks so different... anyways stay stoned friend!

@zellisorange Barneys breeder said in a video about it being the best Sativa on Earth. It was in a lengthy video and I wasn't able to clip it.

Good to have you on board, mate.  I hope you have a jolly good time here.

I've been trying to get some dr grinspoon for over a decade their always out of stock.

We had the doctor on our High On Home Grown YouTube show.  I missed the Jack Herer grow-off.  I was asking Macky to have a Dr. Grinspoon grow-off.  Being out of stock all the time, this could be why we don't.
