  3. I like afghanica kush.but not available our’r can help me delivery.please give me a chance please please

  4. I’m reading the description of the Afghan kush you Stated height as tall ?? I’m a bit confused is this a typo ??

  5. Growing afgani indoors with 3 L.E.d. (total 2500 watts, 1300 veg). Germed in 24hrs, sprouted all by 48 hrs. 20 days since sprouted. All 6 are about 6-8 inches high and at least 9 inches wide. Largest leaves as big as my hand. 4 gal pots (just trans from 8 inch pots). Leaves are HUGE. Happy Frog plus Forest 50/50 mix

  6. I found a single Afghan seed in some shake, planted in my backyard here in Denver, the seed took and as of today. It’s 8′ tall and 5-6′ wide and it’s in the 2nd week of flowering! Hundreds of nickel-sized flowers per branch so far. I have been feeding it water from my Koi pond which is high in nitrates and works better than any miracle grow. It’s my first attempt ever growing a plant and she’s a beauty, looks about the size of a Christmas tree. What are the odds that it’s a female plant?!

  7. Chad,

    IN general, there is no problem, cloning feminized seeds. People do it all the time. I can say that some strains are harder to root than others. I suggest you join us at our ILGM support forum and let us help you figure out what the issue is with your cloning operation.

  8. Omg sorry this post is messed up!!! Spell check wasn’t working The best. All I want to ask is I bought feminized seeds and can’t get them to Clone. Are you unable to clone feminized seeds or is this variety Afghan Kush hard to clone tried 3 different rooting compounds out of 75 clones I got six.

  9. I. Bought Afghan Kush feminized seeds this year. They are growing the very best but I have cut at least 75 clones and I can’t not get them to take!!!! Fryer three different kinds of rooting compound or in jail nothing wondering if you can clone feminized seeds that may be the problem. Thanks.

  10. Afghan Kush is one of the best strains to help settle paranoia and discomfort. Unlike other strains, Afghan Kush won’t play with your thoughts or feelings. Instead, you can count on this strain to ease you into a gentle relaxation. This strain is best used at night since it has pretty potent indica effects that will sedate you. Afghan Kush is also widely used for the treatment of insomnia, but can also help with lack of appetite, depression, stress, and pain.

  11. I thought I’d try it for a change, I’m impressed with the appearance after 8+ weeks and the girls look they want to hang out for 9 or 10 to me. Rock solid and large in wilmas, feed is old school coco + pk from week 4 onwards. With 4 x 600 HPS they appear to hit usual figures of 60 oz. but could easily weigh in a little more – Bone Dry. Odours are particularly pungent and full, very attractive. I’ve some more ready to go pronto.

  12. I always thought the pics of seedlings looked photo shopped. Well the afghan kush I got look just like that!!! Makes ya feel like your a pro! The real credit goes to the forum here. I’ve had 2 issues and a few quick reads fixed it up. SEEDS SEEDS SEEDS. Don’t cheap out!!!

  13. This is the first time I’ve grown this strain. I live in a mountainous region where it rains a lot and the nights are chilly yet the plants I’ve grown are now all flowering and are very busy. My only concern is that they are all females and none become hermies. The seed bank I bought it from stated all the seeds I purchased are indeed females. Not sure just what seed bank it was; it very likely have been yours.

  14. Does the plant have to kept warm. In Britain we don’t have much sunlight so if we grew it indoors would you needs the heat lamps

  15. I have smoked Afghani and i must say i enjoyed the effects. at first it felt strong but it then became very relaxing. i would recommend this strain for anyone who wants to chill out and relax. its a good strain. not to psychedelic but dont underestimate it but respect it and you will be fine. good weed. good strain.

  16. Frostiest of 5 different strains from ILGM very nice – so big from seed I’m afraid to monster crop a clone from this one as I grow indoors- bet it would take up the entire tent! -lol Thanks!

  17. I find using a heating pad under a tray filled to the top with growing medium works well, I have gotten 100% results with the seed I’ve gotten from yall! Thanks for the good job yall do! Ron
