    TW lazy grow journal, lol multiple strains!

    So I guess you have tried this strain before? If so, how does it smoke? I have been looking for a strain to try next and Sin City seems to out of White Nightmare, which is what I wanted to try. Is this strain similar? Thanks Tumbleweed!

    Forgive my ignorance but do you plant 3 seedlings per grow cutout with the idea of removing two later that look less vigorous/healthy?
  4. Hi everybody, So I plan to do a very small indoor grow with CFLs and probably not more than a 4 x 4 grow area. My wife and I are renting and we just want to keep it on the down loooowwww. I will be using FF Ocean Forest and my question is: Would it be okay to treat or drench the soil I plan to use with some Neem Oil and a little Broner’s soap? In other words is it okay to treat the soil BEFORE planting anything in it? My plan is to treat the soil while simultaneously starting (germinating) some seeds. After they germinate, I plan to put them in plastic cups with the treated FFOF. I appreciate your feedback!

    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

    Hi so I am getting our gear ready to try some fishing for this year. Our favorite spot has been Henry Hagg lake, but it appears that a ruckus has started there between the Robinson Family Lake House (which is the establishment on the lake where folks can rent boats, kayaks and also get geedunk (snacks), etc) and the Superintendent of Washington County Parks. In short, the business has been shut down, and while there is a petition page (here:https://www.change.org/p/washington-county-parks-save-robinson-family-lake-house-3c768aa1-8ed3-4595-8f26-2377c914a51d ), it doesn’t look like they will be opening back up anytime soon and to very likely be losing their livelihood. My my wife and I were looking forward to fishing there during the bass spawn, but that probably won’t happen now. I encourage everyone to look at the linked URL and see if they would like to participate in the petition that supports the owner of the business.

    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!!

    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    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.

    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    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..

    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...

    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    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.😎

    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    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.

    Hey thanks EddieKirk, no it will be for me and my pothead wife! (Just kidding but she DOES like her cannabis, in all of its forms!). Once I cure it all I just planned to use it for maybe making canna-butter, maybe try a tincture, I’ll have enough to experiment. I will probably wind-up giving some away also.

    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    In the hope of making things a little clearer, I have attached two pics of the same bud, showing both sides. Would you say it is ready to go into the curing jar, or should I remove more of the sugar leaves? Thank you everyone!

    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    Hi so I am “trimming” some of the crop and since I have never done this before, I thought I might ask the experts what they think. I have attached three pictures that are close-up shots of three different small buds that I am trying to prepare for curing/final trim(?). I have kept all three in jars after about a two-week drying on a “clothesline” in the garage, always between 40 and 60 percent humidity. My intent is: 1) To remove all dead material; 2) Keep all “sugar leaves” in a separate container (or anything that won’t go into the flower jar) 3) Keep all flowers/buds in their own jar for curing. My questions are: 1) In the pictures, what parts would you discard? 2) Should I keep the jar with the sugar-leaf trim in a jar just like the flower jar? (Humidity and temperature....) Thank you everyone!

    Starting a new grow (indoor)

    Thank you, Backdoor!! Relating to your comment on 5000k CFLs, I used these exclusively in this most recent grow and I really like using them and am a big believer in their usefulness, particularly in veg. I like them because: 1) During veg, I rarely have ANY leaves that need to be removed due to spots or yellowing and 2) I feel I had a respectable harvest even when using them through flowering. I even used a few (three out of about 24) CFLs that are rated at 6500k. I appreciate your concern for using these because of the UVb emission, but I have heard (hopefully not bro-science) that blue light (particularly blue light at 430, 450 and 470 nm) promotes shorter, less elongated stems and an overall more compact plant. On a whim, I added a set of two, “5000k LED” lights placed at the bottom of the plant. (Okay so these are LEDs made by Feit, and are advertised as 100watt replacements, they are plain-ole Edison socket bulbs). I have attached a picture of what the buds look like after about a month-long regimen of light from these bulbs. I am sure that the light spectrum from these LEDs is not exactly the same as from the CFLs, but I will do this again the next time I grow, based on the size and appearance of the buds being illuminated by these LEDs. (See pic) So the plant in the picture is one of a particular strain (Tree of Life BX). I harvested three other females of a different strain (Pineapple Haze and 2nd Sight). Without the added light, I don’t believe that these buds would have been as robust as they are. Please don’t think that I am discounting your comments in the last post, I am still trying to get my head around all of the nutrient world.
  25. Hi everyone! I would like to say thank you to everyone who offered advice on my first grow here in Oregon. I will still be limited to a 6’x5’ grow area, but that is cool with me. That area is still occupied by one flowering female that I am about to chop. So I have started with some plastic cups to put the seedlings into after sprouting. I plan to use FFOF again (I have had such good luck with it) but I have some questions: 1) If I re-use soil from a previous grow, is there anything I should do to that soil, such as remediation or root removal? 2) Should I use mycorrhizae on the seedlings immediately after sprouting? Or should that wait awhile until better established? 3) Lighting will be 5000k CFLs again with a few blurple LEDs. That’s all I can think of right now but I appreciate your comments and criticisms!
