    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    Matter of preference, I prefer observing 5% amber on indica dominant plants (best lab numbers), but if the plant is harvested at the moment amber first appears the buds look fresher (and a wee bit smaller) with little to no "dark hairs". If one wants more THCA (as opposed to delta 9 THC) then harvest prior to amber. The last batch of Cherry Cobbler was harvested with 5% amber and lab results were: 27.3% THCA and 2.29% THC (delta 9), 31.3% total cannabinoids. The last batch of Purple Punch was harvested with less than 3% amber (a lot less) and lab results were: 22.0% THCA and 0.826% THC (delta 9), 23.6% total cannabinoids . When labs convert THCA to an equivalent THC (delta 9) they use a 87.7% factor, so total THC = [(THCA x 0.877) = THC (delta 9)] On the flipside, in my garden buds bulk up and extra 10-20% if I wait until 5% amber--rather than pull at the first sign of amber.

    I use these retractable plant hangers, They come in different shapes and sizes and can be purchased at almost any plant store. I've watched @tumbleweed use pipe cleaners for years to prop/hang his up.

    Simple advice for noobies, when you think the plant's done and ready, water it and let it go for another week, and observe how the buds swell. Sometimes the recommended flowering time starts on 12/12 photoperiod flip....and then sometimes it starts when the plant's pistils are about 3/4 inch or so (about 10-14 days after flip...think outdoor with the sun and nature decides when to "flip").

    Well I’m already stoned to begin with but even though it wasn’t terrible, it needs time to cure. I got a LOT of super-“turpeney” flavors and a heady buzz. Live and learn...

    So you say to take a sample from one of the lower flowers/buds of the plant? Makes sense so as not to injure any higher up that are still growing and probably would make a lot more flower than the lower buds.

    Yup, They think its fall so they are getting their fall colors. Don't add any extra nitrogen thinking you can fix the yellowing, It's a common mistake.

    Damn thank you! I had no idea that process would happen. I had heard and read that withering leaves were a normal process of flowering, but I thought that was due to people intentionally under-watering or under-nourishing in some way. I thank you again!

    The fan leaves are giving up their nitrogen to the buds. They will naturally yellow, as they do you can pluck them off. If they don't pop right off with a slight tug then leave them, Soon all the fan leaves should yellow and fall off or be plucked off by you. The spots look normal.

    Stoned Soup

    Anyone want to try some stoned soup? Not only is this a grow lesson but it is a kind of way of making learning fun so in part it's a Game to. Everything posted has to be feasible or already tried This is a great place For experienced growers to teach the beginners how we can manipulate the smell and taste of marijuana. How is it done? Well we use all organic ingredients in both our soil recipe and our nutrient line. By manipulating them around you can get different smells and flavors out of the same strain of marijuana. Think not well use too much bat guano During flower On a Strain you know well Smoke it and you might say that's good shit something you would hear right out of Cheech and Chong LOL! Anyway you may not like it then I don't know what you would say?? LOL. So here's the basic idea of how it works simplified. Take two plans of the same strain give them different soil and nutrient recipes and compare the results you will like one over the other Let's get started I like: a good rich earthy smell And the sweet earthyTaste. This is the ingredients list you can use to do this. You'll need Fox Farm bloom Bio-Biz grow Hydro grow earth juice micro nutrients and molasses to sweeten. For soil I get two bags one of happy frog And the other ocean forest.I also add a bag or brick of cocoa fiber. Just to make me feel tropical LOL. That's all you need to accomplish this. Give it a try !! You will love it!! Now the game part. Into the stoned soup pot I can Put in Molasses Sweet Yum. Now someone else contributes to the stoned soup pot When there are enough Things in the soup someone say batch number one is complete who wants to try it? And someone goes on of course and starts batch number two. if anyone tries them let us know please and give us the recipe you followed. Enjoy everyone!!

    Fishing in 2020

    So yesterday I fished Wilsonville pond and with the help of three other people, a chain leader and a truck with a winch I managed (barely) to land this monster..... I was lucky he didn’t drag me into the water!! ....seriously though the bite is picking up at the pond but the water level is still very low.

    Just trying to apply my wisdom to your predicament, and provide your with a pathway to success, Kinda hard to do things today, that should have been completed weeks earlier--without cheating.

    Well that just sounds bat-shit crazy!! NO JUST kidding!! Seriously I couldn’t pass that up! I will really check with my local nurseries and see what they have, and if they don’t have it I will try on-line. Thank you Backdoor!

    Here's the conflict: Most organic nutrients right out of the bag are not immediately "plant available" while many "inorganic" nutrients are. It takes time for organic nutrients to metabolize and become "plant available". Then we have this issue, after 75 days or so, most organic nutrients are fully decomposed and consumed, which means the time to add organic inputs would have been about 60-75 days ago, not now. So feeding with an organic water soluble nutrient is your destination and that can be accomplished with a tea; bat guano teas are popular and are quite effective. However, public acceptance of using bat guano is somewhat mixed. Some suggest those that collect bat guano do so in hazardous conditions and involve political corruption (Peruvian Seabird Guano for example). So, here we have an effective organic solution that may not be socially correct. In the world we live in today, one must choose their words and actions carefully (as some people are easily offended) thus I no longer mix Bat Guano into my grow medium but reserve it for teas.

    Yes, the number of days are flowering days starting with the first 12 hour dark photoperiod change. I have seen trichs go from clear, to milky, to cloudy, back to clear and then go directly to amber. You are at day 35 in flower, and my suggestion is pretend you have a 9 weeker (63 days) and feed her accordingly. Those flowers will bulk up if you allow them. One advice I used to provide for hobby growers is "when you think its time to harvest, wait another 10 -14 days, then decide. You will be amazed what happens after 7 weeks (49 days). Now remember, THCA converts to THC under these 3 conditions: Time (aging), Light (UVs), and Heat (combusting or vaping). So when you pack a bowl of 2% THC/20% THCA weed, after you light it and inhale, its all THC. Now my Daytime Tinctures contains 14% THCA/86% THC (should have been nearly 80% THCA but the stupid fool Erich (Pharmex) that extracted my Cherry Cobblers was "all hat, no cowboy" and failed). The taste and flavors are remarkably different than the Nighttime Tincture (100% THC). But that's is a story for a different day, as the objective was to create two tinctures within the OMMP network: one dominant in "non-pyscho active" THCA and the other dominant in "pyscho-active" THC. The Sherwood OMMP dispensary still has a very limited supply of my tinctures and I finally received from La Grande OMMP dispensary's all my tincture inventory (La Grande was not supposed to receive the tincture, they did not want it and were not going to sell the tincture--but the gang at Pharmex thought otherwise days before their OMMP license expired). I will post more tincture information later in a new thread....sorry did not mean or desire to hijack this wonderful thread.

    For a hobby grow, snipping a few buds a day from a flowering mature plant is one way to experience buds at different stages of maturity. For a production grow, most will harvest the whole plant and usually all the plants of that batch at the same time. That said, interesting experiments can be conducted by allowing a plant to mature past its suggested harvest date. Years ago I was growing Chocolope that was insanely aromatic (beautiful rotten tropical fruit) and I decided to flower it 100 days (almost twice the normal 54 days) and wow: Hershey Kisses. It tasted, smelled and smoked just like those foil wrapped chocolate drops. My buddy years ago, had an jumbo greenhouse plant that he forgot about (high desert in southwest) and around Christmas he discovered his "mistake" and buds were so big they were laying on top of each other, stacks and stacks, that pulling them apart was impossible. The trichomes swelled and behaved like glue and formed "trichome puddles" of sticky goo. Had I not seen the video, I would be calling this a crock of shit...but, my eyes were not lying. LOL, hazards of unattended automated irrigation always generates "plant growth". Determining the "harvest date" for new strains is a process, I snip and tag good sized top buds daily for 2-3 weeks (55 -77 days maturity) and conduct my quality assurance and comparative tests. In my garden, the sweet spot is seldom under 60 days; sweet spot for Cherry Cobbler is almost 10 weeks (68 days), Purple Punch is 62ish (plus minus 4 days).

    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    Hi so I have a new question...... most all of the heads of the Trichomes are milky or clear now. I understand that for a "typical" harvest of "heady" or THC-heavy smoke, that one should harvest about the time when the trichome heads are about 75 to 85% milky and 25 to 15% amber. Any longer (with a higher percentage of amber trichomes), and the smoke becomes more CBD dominant? Also will the trichome changes (of color) happen at bud sites all over the plant? I am sharpening my executioners blade now, but I'd like to know folks' feelings about the best time to harvest.

    curing your medicine

    I don't.use the brown bag method I have in the past but now I.just do it as I mentioned goes from hanging into jars and from jars into my pipe lol but its not a bad idea for people to try both methods maybe try one plant the brown bag way one plant just the jar way and see wat method works for you the best thankz for the info about under 70% humidity didn't think about that but that's definitely high humidity likes to create mold and if you do use a fan make sure the fan isn't blowing on the buds directly this will make them dry unevenly and a lil faster then u want them to be drying

    curing your medicine

    Very good info grasshopper, lol, BUT there are a few things you left out that are VERY important. When hanging the fresh trimmed buds, make sure your humidity is under 70% and put a small fan blowing in the area. Dosen't have to be directly on the buds, but air circulation is very important to keep mold spores from forming. If you can dial it in to hang for 10 days, you will love the smootheness. Your are at this point trying to break down the Chlorophyl and starches within the plant and letting it turn into sugars. Drying too fast causes a very harsh smoke. When they are dry I like to go straight into large paper bags. About 6-8 inches deep. This will bring out some of the moisture from the larger buds and reconstitute the buds. The paper from the bags will also wick out some moisture. I like to gently fluff up the buds for complete drying. In the bag they will compact your buds which some people like. But if you do not fluff them a little, the centers can stay moist. After 3-5 days in the paper bag, I then go to either large mason jars with airtight lids, or 5 gallon buckets depending on the size of the harvest ;). Check on them every day for the first couple days to make sure they are not too moist. If they are, do as Popeye mentioned and lay them out somewhere for a couple hours then put them back in. After this, I check on em maybe once a week or so. If they are good after a week, I dont mess with them. Some people claim that the buds give off a type of gas and reccomend burping the jars daily. IMHO putting them in the bag takes care of the need to do this. A good cure process should take ya about 3 weeks. If your in a hurry, lol, then set some meds aside to dry and do your thing with the rest. I have tried meds sealed in jars, vaccume sealed and burried underground, sealed in quality airtight plasic containers, etc, and IMHO they start to degrade in about 6 months. We like them fresh. lol.
