a friend had a brother in afghanistan war and such.
well in his travels he traded some booze for some seed.
was told this is the plant they grow to make hash from.
comes from herat afghanistan where ever the fuck that is.
he gave me a few of them. so i planted one. here it is
2 weeks ago.

then here it is today.

sorry photo's are a bit blurry i have a broken wrist atm.
i figured smokes needed some more grow threads.
so some of you others should give a grow thread a try.
well enjoy hope it's a girl

Take it from someone who grew Afghani farmer's cultivars for years: Make seeds from it. The weed it produces will probably be good but no better than many common polyhybrids, the real value in a variety like this is its genetic stability--the seed it produces. Growing only one is essentially a waste of what's there.

well cloned plant then gave it 2 weeks.
put in bud room i guess 3 weeks now.
it had me guessing on it's sex.
at first it looked like male small crab claw type leafs.

so kept eye on it and then 1 day seen 2 white hairs
on a side branch. well then the next day when i looked
the tops that had claw leafs had a flush of hairs across them.

so it is a female and has a interesting bud growth to it.
thanks for looking :smoke:

but no better than many common polyhybrids


i often witnessed just the opposite (with sativas)

the best highs were from no-names, if id havd to choose 5 all time favs, only 1 - original haze - would make it into the list


btw anybody intrested in genuine balkan sativas - collected some 50 seeds during my vacation :rollitiup:

The no name Affie cultivar I grew was about the same in potency as the better named similar types like SensiStar and Aurora Indica. So, indeed, better than most.
