Aloha and welcome to Mold Resistant Strains, a collection of marijuana strain reviews, weed growing advice, and other original cannabis related information.
My name is Jay, I live in a community of off-grid medical and guerrilla marijuana growers on the Big Island of Hawaii. Growing weed has been my passion for the past 10 years of my life. When I first came to the Island, I was lucky enough to had been immersed in the cannabis cultivation lifestyle from the beginning, and quickly fell in love with it.
Hawaii’s climate can be rough – some years we deal with constant non-stop rain and high-humidity. Not the ideal flowering conditions for budding beauties. Pounds and pounds of weed have been thrown away in my early years of cultivation due to botrytis (mold) and bud rot problems.
Hawaii’s wet tropical climate challenges were are the main setback for aspiring pot growers in such locations. Botrytis (grey/blue mold) grows like wildfire in a tropical/subtropical climate, and powdery mildews is rampant throughout Hawaii. However, there are locals and experts cultivating some of the highest-grade sweet pakalolo, renowned worldwide. Long-time outdoor growers learned how to deal with these common challenges.
Back in the 1970s, Hawaii’s cannabis was being mass-produced, guerrilla-style in 12-foot high sugar cane fields. The guerrilla growers themselves are insane gnarly to this day. Hard as f#ck. Not someone you would want to mess with. These guerrilla cultivators were not the airy-fairy hippies you may of imagined. Most growers would go out to the fields for 12 hours a day, skipping lunch and working hard on guerrilla patches.
The old-school guys would have multiple hundred pound years guerrilla growing, and at the same time be in a non-stop battle between pot-bust helicopters(green harvest) and local marijuana thieves(rippers). Not to mention faced with heavy non-stop rainy seasons through some years. These cultivators have fine-tuned the best way to care for cannabis in a potentially harsh environment through the years. The old Marc Emery catalogues were used a lot to buy cannabis seeds, they must have tried every single variety listed in there. Bought like precious candy.
Anyways, I got the fortunate luck of having ties to a big-time old-school cultivator. When I went to go live and apprentice with the fellow, the showed me that growing cannabis for him has to be physically demanding. A true guerrilla grower at heart, he loved to hike long miles in search of a better, safer patch – as well as hunt for game along the way. I quickly adapted and took advantage of this fun, healthy lifestyle.
I started growing guerrilla herb patches as well as keeping a medical marijuana garden at home. I tried to take growing into the same respect as this man. The reason he had never been busted, is because this man went the extra mile in safety and precaution. His military training and passion for hunting trained his senses to respond to the faintest of noises.
As the years rolled by, I kept cultivating herb hard. No excuses, and full dedication to the plants and plans. Through quality herb and connections, a reputation built up for me as the harvests kept improving. Unemployed – I devoted myself to producing the highest quality weed I could possibly get outdoors. Full-time work schedule. Hours in the fields scouting, preparing, planting, watering, ect..
Soon enough these outdoor harvests were in demand higher than the herb indoor guys were producing around here. People were driving up to the house and wanting all the weed available on the spot, for a great deal. I never had to make phone calls. People would just come, they knew.
