Show and Tell come post your grows

I do not pump air in from outside but there is an open window behind each tent.
I also run humidifiers in each tent to help with my dry air
Am running a air scrubber that is split from each tent on a dimmer switch
In my flower tent 400 watt h.p.s. I have 3 of my 4 clones that were taken from Strawberry Cough plants
back at the end of December. (Thankyou Heirloom spores for your help with clones)They were transplanted into 4 gal. Cloth pots on January 4th. I staggered each plant by a week when starting their 12/12 light schedule
So left to right 1 of 4,2 of 4, 3 of 4
In my veg. tent I've decided it to make room for my 4 of 4 clone by splitting my tent half veg 300 watt m.h. half flower 150 watt h.p.s.
On the veg side I have some clones of my clones : ) of strawberry cough
They are on a heat mat with each container saturated with water. I mist the lids about twice a day
for repurposed chicken container. The c.d. Container holds on to the moisture better. The plant in the c.d. container is a little sad but I refuse to give up on her.
The two plants on the right are Raspberry coughs. Like the strawberry coughs, they are a sativa/ indica hybrid but the raspberry also contain a higher amount of cbd.
The plant on the left is a auto blueberry.
Yes it has leaf curl, no its not nutrient over load. I transplanted in a too big of pot and over watered it.
When reading up on how I should grow her, it mentioned it did not need hardly any nutes and need a lot of air circulation so I used fox farms potting soil and added a lot of perlite. I'm sure she will bounce back. Next time I won't be lazy and slowly increase the pot size
Alright, who's next?

Ok here are some in a flower room clones are just 1 "M" 1 "K" and an ogkush, the plant yet to be harvested is an og kush, I have a few poppies in there about to be moved. These are under a 400 wt induction light.
I have them tied over to encourage side branching and control height.
The last 2 pics are my wood box 2.5 ' deep X 3' long x 6' tall lit up
with a 400 MH.
I'll want to clone soon , using a bubble cloner , this time I'll change my water ever 3 or 4 days to prevent slime or get an additive at the hydro store.

Wow, 2'x3' grow box, now that screams " you mean business " : )
Poppies, cool.. I'd like to try that one day. Maybe throw some in with my ornamental poppies.
Are Kush plants a indica domminent or can they be both indica and or sativa?

I don't see why one could not be sativa dominant. I think Hashman has a OG Kush that has the sativa traits.
Nice to see you around Happy, hope you are doing well.
I cut a small lower bud that looked ready, the potency was great a hard bud though the flavor wasn't much to talk about. Maybe the flavor will improve with age. I estimate maybe a half ounce of this plant . I got clones to try again. I'm keeping this clone in my clone bank.
I took the og sample with a knife cutting the bud in half cut through a seed and got 3 other seeds
in this little sample. The seeds are early hope they sprout, I am letting the og ripen more as the top needs more time, that will be good for ripening seeds.
I crossed it with another female in my feminized seed experiment a while back. the pollen donor had a better flavor was potent and a bigger yielder. When grown out I might decide to cross those plants back to another og kush but not the same plant but to a another plant from the same family of kush.
A type of back cross perhaps I should refer to it as a modified back cross.
Yea Lakegal I got 2 box's I made for 400 watter lamps and a similar box I use 8 400 foot t-8 flourescen bulbs in it sits on a table for cloning and vegging. I used to grow more but now harvesting 3-4 plants ever 8 weeks is good.
I have several 400 hps and a 1000 wt hps and others along with hydro equipment that goes unused. I got a 4x4x g new grow tent I never opened , I was going to grow a bunch then things changed so they are just being stored. I gave away several 400's to people so they could grow their own.
For the poppies I figure if I get 10 -15 grams of opium that will last my wife and I a year , providing 100 -150 pills @ 10mg -15 mg of a broad spectrum opiate containing morphine, codeine and lesser alkaloids that are use for coughing. We can't use everyday but when needed and apply discipline to use strickly as medicine but on occasion maybe a recreation buzz.
I wanted to say that 10 mg of morphine from opium is = to 2 - 5mg hydrocodone
pills. I figure 1/10th a gram of opium is ~ 10mg of M these amounts are not recreational but medical very handy in an emergency or home medical especially when one
can't get medical treatment.
Once I get talking in a thread like this I want to go on and on.

I have one tent, it's 3'x3'x6' ( https://www.hydrowho...-3-x-3-x-6-5426).
The light is a Platinum LED p450 ( https://www.amazon.c... led p450&psc=1).
My exhaust/scrubber is a viagrow 22-45 CFM 4 ( https://www.hydrowho...2-45-cfm-4-5908 )
Current strain is Alien Blues from La Plata Labs....All organic...
I used to have a much more elaborate setup, as can be seen in my past threads ( https://mycotopia.ne...een-working-on/
https://mycotopia.ne...4477-new-setup/ ) ....Had a 4x8 flood table in a room I built, as well as a veg area. Space was abundant. Oh man, I miss that.....

I love reading about how you've produced seeds and created your own
personal varieties of crossed plants.
When you say " keep it in your clone bank" do you mean keeping a sample plant in a small container and keeping
it in a perpetual veg grow?
Sativa vs. Indica, finding that just right balance is my goal
The sativas are energizing but can also make me feel uptight
The indicas are relaxing but can put me to sleep.
I'm hoping that my raspberry coughs give me more of a body high. The leaves are fatter
so I'm assuming that's the indica traits coming through.
A while back I got ahold of a blue dream variety ( from a pot shop) and it was perfect.
Of course, went looking for that strain and couldn't find it anywhere. That's what's so great about growing your own.
Blue dream will be one of my next seed purchases.
I recently purchased some seeds that are cbd domminent. I want to grow these and learn how to make
tinctures for my daughter.
I purchased them from Seedman. The varieties are:
Candida 10.6-20.6%cbd and 0.3-0.9% thc
Hydro 11.1-16.5% cbd and 6.3-8.4% thc
Green Dr. 8.4-16.9% cbd and 3.7-12.8% thc sativa domminent
Nightingale 10.3-20.3% cbd and 0.6-9% thc indica domminent
These percentages vary wildly. I purchased just one seed each.
Hopefully I can exspand and continue to grow all of these varieties
Fungi, that is one gorgeous girl you have there
Alien Blues is a name I don't think I've heard of before,
can you share more about your strain?
Went to Amazon and checked out your light set up.. that light
does everything but walk the dog ; )
Your 3x3 seems like the perfect size for your sea of green.
loved looking through your past grow. Yes that was an amazing set up

Wanted to comment on your poppies, I'm impressed. Can you share how you
go from plant to pill form? I am fascinated and encouraged by your grow.
It's so pioneer, a self sufficient attitude behind your grows

I to notice the difference in different varieties of cannabis,
Some has me tripping to sleeping.
I have used Seedsman good seeds.
I would pills from poppy to ways , one is to score them and collect the raw opium and mix with a powder to reduce stickiness and roll into pills.
The second is to make pod tea and evaporate and roll into pills.
Pod tea is simply 1-3 pods for a beginning powdered in a blender and soaked in hot water, filtered and drank.
The liquid can be evaporated and made into a pill , though the tea extract is large when scraping it up.
A easy vac chamber
nothing fancy. I am going to use this for 2 people , for emergency pain
when a DR. won't prescribe and such situations

Thanks Heirloom, for sharing the dyi site very cool
It's amazing what can come off of shake.
Hate to keep harping on about the clone bank, but if I were to keep a clone growing in
a small container and keep it in my veg. Tent, can it be kept in that way for lets
say a year?

while making a few seeds can be fun , keeping clones is a sure thing.
With seeds a person doesn't know that they will be good but clones are
Here is the pic that I had trouble posting, I got pretty high and needed

Nice strong smoke and dammit, I just think those buds look so
cool caked with kief.
Transplanted my two Raspberry coughs in 3 gal. Felt pots a few days ago
Transplanted my strawberry cough clones today. Gonna leave my one clone
in my homemade c.d. Greenhouse. It needs all the help she can get.
Hopefully my transplants will be alright without the humidity
of a cover.
im encouraged to hear about your clones longevity. I really want to keep at least
two of my clones in a permanent veg state.
I'm limited on space and really want to devote my grow space
to the cbd s. For my next grow.
At least spring is getting closer and I can get a start for some outdoor
grows. Along with a couple of the strawberry clones I have some mystery seeds I will put outside.
Gotta laugh, I've got 1 1/2 feet of snow in my front yard and I'm thinking about growing anything outside.
It's been a long winter. I am so glad I have had the opportunity to grow these beautiful girls this winter.
It's fed my soul. Even if I never smoked another nug the rest of my life ( which I plan to never stop)
I would still grow cannabus.

I have kept clones by cloning them then putting the plant into flower.
Cloning the clone and over again, this works for plants.
I understand that clones were taken to Europe by Sam_Skunkman in the 1970's
that are still used today to make seeds. I tell you this to save space and
to help keep the plant clones you like the best.
I think clones are a sure thing seeds a gamble.
I am so lucky I got clones from Hash_Man of the OG Kush he has been growing
including a Lemon Thai pheno of the OG.
I guess I just had to share that, pics coming soon.
Yea its still winter here but dreaming about this years harvest.
I find cannabis to be so beautiful that I would grow it forever ,
in Europe cannabis is grown as an ornamental one cultivar is Panorama
which grows small but in a globe shape.
I agree keep a clone of the nugs you like, I made the mistake of chasing the
bud is always greener in some one elses grow. its not, we already have the best bud.

Put the 7 week old blueberry Auto into the bloom tent today
My fourth S.C. That have in my other half of my veg tent wasn't doing much in the way of flowers
I added another panel to give it better coverage for darkness.
It's been a good learning exsperience about how important the dark
Transplanted the two raspberry coughs in 3 gal felt pots. Transplanted my
Soaking 2 of my CBD seeds and a couple mystery seeds to put
outside along with a couple of the s.c. clone for outdoor grows
Sorry about some of the photos being sideways or upside down.
