    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    Should I remove as much as possible of the infected buds, or just filter the extract with the 0.2 micron syringe filters to catch the undesirable mold parts?

    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    Hi so I was cleaning/trimming the last female, and I believe that maybe I have found the problem. The attached photo is of the bud I was trimming and isn’t that some kind of mold growing on the inside of the bud next to the main stem? Also I realize that having such a bad infestation of aphids indicates a severe lack of supervision, but I wrongly assumed that since I was growing indoors I didn’t have to worry about bugs as much and in such a relatively low humidity climate that I didn’t have to worry about mold as much either and I was a fool to think so. Thanks everyone!

    Fishing in 2020

    I caught two rainbows, an 8 1/2” and a 10 1/2”. Both were caught on a reddish-colored rooster tail.

    Fishing in 2020

    Here is a picture of all of the shit I have bought for trout and crappie.....if you can see everything, what else would you recommend to try? The guy that told my wife about this reservoir sent her some pics of some BIG trout that they caught last weekend. When you say worms, do you mean live worms or night crawlers? Also do you think small spinnerbaits would be any good, like rooster tails? Also what about these lures? They were advertised to be for Steelhead Trout, but maybe these are too big for Rainbows? I appreciate your opinions!

    Fishing in 2020

    A colleague of my wife owns some property near Wamic, Oregon, which is south of the Dalles. There is an impoundment there called the Pine Hollow reservoir that is open to the public for fishing and we are planning to try our luck there tomorrow for some rainbow trout. I would surely appreciate anyone who has some suggestions or recommendations for fishing for rainbows there!!

    By the way, I found that fungus gnats are apparently attracted to the “hardener” component of 2-part epoxy (the two-part mix where you mix equal parts of hardener and resin). I have attached a picture of the bottle of epoxy “hardener”, showing a bunch of dead fungus gnats that got stuck to the excess, spilled hardener. Note that this bottle of hardener was kept quite far away from the plants and they really seem to be attracted to it. This is just the hardener part of the 2-part mix NOT mixed with the resin.

    So I must admit that I have not been a very good steward of my last plant but I found the last female to be covered in aphids....all along the leaf stems, just packed in. Would a soak in pyrethrin hurt the buds of the plant? She is well into flower and I’m sure that this is the cause of all of the foxtailing....

    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    Hi everyone my first three plants are all curing and the last female (another strain) is still going. Her trichomes are about 60% milky and 40% clear so I was still holding out for that to get closer to 80%/40% but I don’t know if the fox-tailing it has been doing is because of the conditions or if it is genetic (I understand some strains have Fox-tailing behavior that is normal). It’s called “Second Sight BX”, and I got the seeds for free at a meeting of the “Cannabeizein Garden Club” over a year ago, but I don’t know where to find any information about this particular strain. A few questions I have now are: 1) There were a few male flowers that produced seeds. Some of these seeds look like they’re healthy so I have heard that if these seeds were planted and cared for, then they would be guaranteed to be female. Is that right? 2) On those buds that did “hermie”, I guess the other, unfertilized flowers are still quite smokable? I have been dipping into my own stash of trim and it is strong; it still has almost no taste, it won’t make you cough, nothing..

    Thank you, these are some really useful links!

    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    Hi so here is the last living female of the grow I started a few months back. The trichomes are mostly clear (70%) and some milky (30%). I would normally cut the main trunk and suspend it in the air, up-side down, but I’m afraid in this case that they might all kind of clump together when I suspend them to dry....would there be any disadvantage to chopping individual buds and drying them separately?

    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    I remember way back in my younger days when I gave a ride to a stoner “friend” who brought his bong along with him on our journey through space and time, Before we could partake and while making a sharp turn in the car, I heard the sound of “....bump, glug, glug, glug, glug...” and my stoner friend saying,” oh wow man!....I lost my resin!!!” No statement of remorse or apology for letting all of that “sweet” bong water disperse into my car floorboard...

    Thanks Backdoor! I have been looking at the lower-wattage versions so that, for a given grow area, I like to have more light sources for better light penetration into the canopy. In other words, for a given 4’x4’ grow area I like to have (4) 70 watt lamps as opposed to one 315 watt lamp for better light penetration to the lower leaves. Is there any flaw with that reasoning? And also thank you for the specifics on what equivalent black-body radiator color temperature that you use, 4200K for veg and 3100K for flower.😎

    That is great information but I am loathe to pay what they ask for the CMH fixtures, ballasts, etc. My biggest mistake was to continue to use the 5000k CFLs into flower, but I’m still a believer in them in their ability to veg cannabis. Could anyone recommend an inexpensive source of CMH equipment? Google seems to present me with a bunch of over-priced stuff....

    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    Thank you again, Backdoor! I have had great luck with 5000k CFLs for vegging, in that there is almost never a diseased leaf to pluck. Again this is for vegetative growth. I simply continued using the CFLs because I didn’t have any better light sources. So do you use compact metal halide light throughout a grow, or just during flower? Always appreciate your insights, Backdoor. BTW this stuff smokes admirably for a heady high, not much taste at all though.

    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    No they are only now going into the curing jars.....BTW I smoke this on a daily basis and it has really no taste at all....no harshness (unless you take an insane hard hit) and no hay taste....but then no “fruity” or “sweet” flavors either. Anyway all of these buds still are to be cured. Also I have been trying to make a small temp/humidity circuit (that mounts on a curing jar lid) to digitally display the temp and humidity but I am buggering something up when I solder the pieces together, I have screwed two of them up and am trying a third time. The intent is to screw on the lid (with the sensor installed) and just read the temp and humidity, then put the regular lid back on. It’s powered by a USB connection and it works on the breadboard, but not after I have soldered it up.
