    I'm just starting a new journal.

    I am going to be growing some jack herer, I have germinated 5 seeds i hope to get 5 fems obviously but I just wanna get 1 fem minimum to create a decent mother.

    I have put them in with some shiva shanti 2 as you can see the difference in the size of the bean is quite large.

    "Jack" is a very nice smoke, ngt. I've grown him (her!) and a few of the crosses that have arisen from her.

    "cinnamon" from Female Seeds is a nice offshoot. Very spicy and yes...a vague hint of cinnamon comin through....

    Probably the best offshoot I've had so far is "Jackie-O". She's a clone only strain that is very popular that is making the rounds in my circle of friends.
    She's a very nice yielder...chunky buds with a burnt orange/citrus smell that transcends into the flavor of the smoke very well. The high is "up" and is fairly long lasting.

    good luck on yer grow

    its predominantly sativa right, how talll are these gals gonna get, i plan to grow a decent mother first so i can clone n flower to keep the height down for an indoor hydro grow.

    So what seedbank did you get them from Ngt?

    How much you pay for them as well

    Yes it is predominately a sativa...but it's lineage leaves a lot of room for some indica and some variances to appear.

    Jack Herer is a cross between Skunk #1, Northern Lights #5 and Haze.

    My Jackie-O doesn't stretch a lot. Flowered at 12"...she may get 18-20' tall. I've never grown her bigger because I have a 4 ft height restriction in my flower room. (but a new room is coming soon) The "Cinnamon" I grew was much the same though she may have stretched a bit more than the Sensi JH I did years ago. Been awhile..so there's lotsa fog...LOL!

    I hope it goes well for ya

    Rumour has it that Jack Herer is Sensi Seeds version of Arjans Greenhouse and Shanti's Mr Nice's Super Silver Haze. It's based around the same genetics with some minor tweaks as Arjan bred the Super Silver Haze in the Sensi breeding rooms with Skunk x NL x Haze, only he left his notes behind and Neville of Nevilles Haze fame donated his pure bred Haze line to Arjan which makes his Super Silver Haze marginally better than Sensi's Jack Herer but to all intents an purposes JH is Sensi's version of SSH and they're virtually the same.

    Shall be watching this one with interest - curious to see how the JH's turn out. Well done NGT for selecting an interesting strain!

    Anyone going for any Subcool offerings anytime soon? Those JTR's look nice !

    I've got my eyes on loads atm,
    some front runners
    PureSativa.com TH Seeds Heavy Duty Fruity
    PureSativa.com TH Seeds The Hog
    PureSativa.com Flying Dutchmen Titan's Haze Cannabis Seeds

    and also a few others from the flying dutchman seedbank,

    I have only used this site to show the seeds as you can link directly to the strain, other ones have silly interface things that you have to navigate

    Well so far i have two jack herer that have actually developed tap roots, this number is far from satisfactory and I have germinated many "cheaper" seeds that have had a far higher germination rate. I paid for supposedly better genetics, well after this I will only buy "cheaper" seeds as I've had barely any probelms with nirvana seeds

    Doesn't sound good. Doesn't sound as though these seeds are as fresh as they should be. Go easy on the 2 that've popped, you want these girls to make it.

    They'll be fine on the window sill for a few days.

    I'm still holding out for the others, i only need one mother though, i'm feeding them only ph adjusted water and they are about 3 foot away from a 250w 6400k cfl

    Dang NGT that's not a great germination rate. How did you germ them? Did you soak them for 24 hours first? Sometimes that helps 'older' seeds to crack earlier. But, stay patient the others may still crack for you, iot can take anything up to 14 days for seeds to germinate.

    Good luck!

    I did only germ 7 of them, I did them the same way i always do it.

    wet towel on a plate, seeds on towel, dry towel on top to soak up the excess and then cover with a plate, the seeds were a lovely colour before hand but they all turned black.

    I will keep on trying for the other 5 but as long as i get one fem out of these we should all be happy ;)

    Yup, definitely old seeds... I bet they've come off some guys grow and he's over/under matured them. Or simply just not stored them properly after harvest.

    at least if this is the case, then the two you've got have a very good chance of being the real deal.
