here is an update on whats growing
these are my two CBD dominants Nightingale and Hiydrow
they are at 7.5 weeks in the bloom tent
here is my veg. tent there is another hiydrow my 1 of 2 aurora indica and a raspberry cough
about 2 weeks ago I planted some seeds. they are
white widow, orange skunk, gorilla cookies, gorilla bomb and amnesia haze
placing the seedlings in a tent with LEDs is a bit dangerous and one plant did get a little burnt.
enclosing the seedlings in their own little greenhouse helps protect them and keep the humidity high.
this is the first time ive used the leds for seedlings. what is interesting is the leaves are stacking up on top of each other.
cant figure out why I keep loading pictures sideways, sorry.
the way I start my seeds is fold the bean into a damp paper towel, keep in a cool dark place.
when they sprout I plant them into a soaked rapid rooter starter cube and place in a small container of soil and place a clear cup over
and mist when needed
been keeping these babies a good distance away from the light that I have dialed down to 3/4 power
I have had the best luck growing my clones this way as well
here are some clones I put outside about a week ago
dammit! I'm on a laptop and was really hoping I wouldn't be dealing with pictures posting wrong side up oh well
ive got around 8 plants out hiding in plane sight in my yard
ive grown a lot of strawberry cough and will continue keeping clones
the raspberry cough is not as strong in the way of thc but it is a great wake and bake strain
brite eyed and bushy tailed its calming and does not cloud up the ol noggin heres
an upsidedown shot
the red hairs are dominant, fairly solid nugs [small] but yummy
its an earthy sweet smell

Been thinking about what I will do in the way of building
some Green houses with black out cover for the end of the grow.
It's a ways off but really want to protect them towards the end.
The summers just not long enough. Hopefully I will have room for a couple
girls inside but because I went bat shit crazy on the amount I will have to
come up with a simple but efficient protection from the elements and the light
Thinking poly tubing, clear plastic and a black out cover
By the end of summer most of the tourists are gone so hopefully I will not
knock my neighborhood out with the pungent odor of the girls

Going to get this sideways pictures figured
out before I post anything else
I've got way too many plants and have tried to get ahold
of of medical clone places to give some of them away
I think after Wa. St. Went from medical grow and use
to recreational, it did some damage concerning clone banks.
Had some friends visit a couple of days ago
and was able to give them a couple. They were so happy and sent me pictures
of them transplanted in they're flower bed

Grand Daddy Purple Courtesy of the good folks in Washington State. You guys grow some fine cannabis.

it was like a time warp. It smelled and looked just like the Columbian Gold
from the 70-80s
Heirloom, what I like about your grows is how lovely the buds are
Their firm but have just the right amount of moister. I hate spending money on
cannabus and find it all bone dry and crumbley. I would take it back but I know I'm just being a weed
snob. Actually I have no business buying anything.. But variety is the spice of life

Nice looking buds! Lakegal did you see the Aurora Indica buds I posted for you here in Grassroots? I love seeing people's successful grows as well. Heirloom, did you say an OG kush wasn't much in the flavor department? That is definitely not the norm with those, I wonder if it came from a seed or an old school clone? Usually even in seed form the lemon oil smell of the OG kush comes through nicely in the smoke as it is a very dominant strain to cross with.
Someone mentioned Sam the Skunkman's genetics he brought over to Amsterdam way back in the day. I worked with some of his G13 Hashplant genetics for years and they are some awesome stuff. I think The Observer has some of my old stuff going still on here.
The Strawberry cough is a medical strain that is used for pain, but I had the old school clone of it and found it not to my taste. The Haze genetics in that cross make me tense and edgy, and I like more relaxing pot. This was an enjoyable thread to look through and kept me busy for a while! :)

Coopdog sounds like you know your girls..
it must be cool to have had the pleasure to work in this industry
did someone else also recently comment on a lemon pledge OG kush?
I can relate Coopdog about shitty edgey sativa strains. finding a strain that's perfect, a " just for you" experience
is a good goal to persue.. I have even mixed different strains to smoke at the same time.
Nirvanas aurora indica was mentioned it was one of their strongest indicas , I wanted this so I could grow some for a friend who has some anxiety / ptst
challenges and for my self as well.
ive got one growing in a 7# pot and the other in the tent in a 1#
I should put that one outside in a bigger pot
still having plant posting problems
thanks for the eye candy

It's so simple yet I'm a bit disgusted with myself for not thinking of it
I've got about 8-10 plants outside and am in the process of making
blackout houses for them. Why wait till the end of summer. These plants are plenty
big enough to start the flowering process.
I'm making two 3'w X 4' l X 4' h frames out of pvc along with elbows.
I'm going to cover them up at 5-6 p.m.
After it gets dark I'll uncover so they get fresh air.
Covering them in the early evening is convenient so I don't need to get up early
and uncover everything
I will post some pix later

What do you use for the light barrier Lakegal?
I am at the point where I would consider this myself.
Posted 09 July 2017 - 06:16 PM
There's some better stuff out there
There is this panda plastic specifically for grow rooms
where it's white on one side and black on the other.
The plastic I have isn't the thickest but I think it will
do the job.
Ended up sandwiching two big plants between my woodshed and propane tank.
I was concerned about the tank burning the plants but so far so good.
I have an upper floor deck off my grow room and decided to place six plants up there
am a little concerned about the quality of light
but decided to move the easily steal-able from those rat bastard thieves who I noticed
repeated drive bys and major rubber necking.
I still have two big plants so I'm giving one to a neighbor who is growing but has way more privacy
It's Jeckle and Hyde exictance. It's either a ghost town with 75% of vacation homes empty to everyone and his dog is here. So some times when people go by you don't know if they
are hear with friends/ family or they are scoping out the place.. but I know who this local yokel is so best take temptation away
Decided to remove my h.p.s. and split up my LEDs for both tents. I like the hps it's just too hot . Will use it this fall after it cools off a bit.
Plenty of baby's in the veg tent. Am considering removing all these and transplanting into bigger pots
and placing outside,then placing some of my plants I want to flower and using as a bloom tent.
I'm rambling ..

I remember buying from seeds direct then seed boutique and DR. chronic always got my seeds and more. Last I heard Gypsy was in jail in the Philippians and people often confused Gypsy with Nirvana seeds due to the legal name change he did.
I like the trippy pure sativas yea the edge is crazy makes my heart beat faster I get paranoid at the site of a cop. My favorite sativa is the Skunkmans Original Haze.
Looks real beautiful Lakegal, I hope you have a nice harvest. Sending good protective vibes.
I don't know why anyone would steal when they could grow but it happens all to often. Weed thieves should be put into 1 year long drug treatment, made to work to pay restitution, taught to grow but not allowed to get high for the entire year. for first time offenders. I know that's to easy on them. a year in a North Korean coal mine is what they really deserve for stealing medicine.

So what did I do after losing the top halves of my plants on 2 consecutive years?
I put up a sign next to my plants saying: "You don't want these buds when they're not finished, just come back in october and ring the doorbell, I'd be happy to give you some. Also, smile for the camera!"
Nothing has been stolen ever since, nobody ever came by to ask for weed.
What bothers me even more, is that farmers are held responsible for the weed people grow (guerilla style) on their premises. This means that farmers, whose farm is already 90% owned by the banks (thanks milk quota and regulations!) can get millions of euros in fines for people illegally planting weed on the farmers fields. A friend of mine was financially destroyed like this. He has to work 2 jobs next to his regular farming business. Over here you can't go bankrupt and start again from scratch, we have a culture of paying debt first before getting any more loans. This friend of mine will be debt free when he's 50 years old, if nothing bad happens, right now he's 27. 23 years or breaking back work, just because somebody cut down his corn and planted a truckload of weed instead. If farmers want to inspect their own fields, they can rent drones and drone pilots nowadays, for an absurdly high price. These inspections allow them to receive a slip to show to the police, stating that these farmers actively fight guerilla planting on their fields. Sometimes that helps them from being persecuted, but sometimes it doesn't.
If you thought the Netherlands was a great place for cannabis lovers, please think about why all Dutch seed companies have moved to Spain.
Off topic though, sorry for that! I'll post some pics later this week to make up for that ;-)

I can relate to stressy sativas
Finding a good hybrid is the ticket
Never tried eSkunkmans Haze
I think my mystery plant is a Kush
. Will post a pic to get some opinions
I agree JanSteen, the system is back ass wards. I feel like
cops only care about collecting revinue. Don't bother calling the cops if you get ripped off.
God! That's disheartening how the victim is re victimized by the the powers that be.
It's not right..
My heart goes out to your friend. So young and so strapped down in back breaking debt. Shitty growers for sure.
Let's hope karma find those bozos who did this to the guy
Maybe more Americans ( especially our gov.) should be be wiser with our finances concerning debt.
