This weeks blog features an Australian grower that specialises in growing Frisian Dew seeds outdoors using mesh netting to provide some shade from the intense Australian sun. Frisian Dew is one of Dutch Passions all time best selling feminized outdoors cannabis seeds, she is easy to grow in all conditions. Frisian Dew grows well everywhere from Northern Europe to tropical Australia, this is a robust variety with great pest and mold resistance.
The following words come from this weeks grower, Aussie Alex.
“This strain is by far the best for my style of growing. I veg indoors under led lights finishing them outdoors in my green house. Frisian Dew grows fast and finishes fast. It has good mold resistance and great bag appeal most of the bud are quite dense. And half the plants will turn purple without a cold snap.”
Aussie Alex explained why he likes Frisian Dew.
“With my style of growing I can put them out in October and finish In December that's getting to the longest days of the year and they still keep flowering and finishing with rock hard buds. No other strain I've used can do this. They are almost like an auto, keep in mind I live in Australia, our days are not as long as Europe. But other strains revert back to vegetive growth outdoors, so Frisian Dew is the best strain I have ever grown. Another reason I grow Frisian Dew is the resistance to extreme weather. These plants were put out in the last month of winter and had frost in the night, whilst day time temps reached an unusually hot 30ºC - this happened for 2 weeks. Before I finished them we had 40 degrees Celsius heat for a whole week which did not affect them at all.
Last year in spring we also had 40 degrees heat for 1 month and the Frisian Dew’s finished with rock hard buds. Another reason for loving the strain the seeds are great value for money. I always get 100% germination rate.”
Aussie Alex explains why he grows Frisian Dew under white mesh netting
“I grow under the netting to give some protection from the insects it works really well. Also the sun in the summer is so strong, the mesh gives 30% shade this helps to keep them happy. And the last reason for the white mesh is security, you can't see any thing inside from 50 meters away. If other growers try this strain they won't regret it, it’s easy to grow and has heavy harvests. These plant gets so heavy it needs support, its essential”
Aussie Alex explains more about his Frisian Dew greenhouse grow.
“I grew 25 plants and made 40 pounds (18 Kg) of dry product - beautiful nugs. I veg them for 9 weeks indoors then finish them in my green house right on 7weeks nice and fast. I grow only in coco its the only way for me. I used Dutch Fest coco nutrients and cal-mag (Calcium & Magnesium supplement) and a PK booster. That's it for the good results. I use the insulation around the pots to protect them from the frosty mornings in the winter and to protect the black plant containers from getting too hot in the sun.”
This weeks grow from Aussie Alex shows how productive, tough and versatile Frisian Dew is. The Frisian Dew marijuana seeds are germinated indoors and grown for 9 weeks under 24 hours of daily LED light. This gives the seedlings the best possible start and will allow them to be well established before they are placed outside under the white mesh netting. Under the powerful Australian sun the Frisian Dew plants raced through bloom in a couple of months with heavy yields. Many Frisian Dew growers also use the THC rich harvest to produce hash, cannabis oil or other types of cannabis concentrates which are becoming more and more popular.
Frisian Dew is a heavy yielding outdoor cannabis variety, Aussie Alex got around 18Kg from 25 plants using his system. Aussie Alex finds that growing in coco fibre allows rapid growth and heavy blooms. Using the white mesh screening also helped the plants by giving them just enough shade to protect them from the extreme heat that can be experienced in Australia.
Coco fibre is already a versatile, popular and effective medium for growing cannabis seeds indoors. But plenty of outdoor and greenhouse growers are also starting to use coco fibre for their cannabis plants. This will require daily feeding/watering, but the extra effort is usually worth it at harvest time.
A proven outdoor variety needs to combine high THC, heavy yields, fast growth as well as pest and mold resistance. Frisian Dew does that under a wide range of outdoor conditions, and because she is so tough and robust she is a very easy cannabis variety to grow.
