    Anything outdoors....
  1. Nah I gave my camera to my daughter I bought a Hero2 camera but it doesnt take that great of pictures without good light. I tried to take a bunch of pictures with it but none really showed off the purple well. I may just upload a video of the plants but need some kind of white light for good vids or pics... I have 5 Purple Eve going now about 3 weeks out from being done and just started some in hydro YEA! When harvested I can take them outside and get decent pics I suspect... I also am growing one of the green phenos that sativa one...man oh man that was stoney as hell, but so was the purple one... I wanna give a try to the way you do it in the DWC so expect a call from me to pick your brain about it.... Those first ones I started really had it tough to start so they really werent even a good representation of the product. I took some pictures but they all kinda sucked so I deleted them..none showed how beatiful they were... I suck at dirt most of the times but did well this time and the hydro is gunna be great !!!! Anyway yea I live lost hehe and expect to be moving soon agin LOL... The pot is great but what else you expect =P
  2. Aeight, here is a bit later I post them the day I take picture of them so you can see the advancement by going to see date on earlier post. JB 01,02,03 are seemingly larger formed branches and JB04 a tad smaller. All look good for the hell they went through, I got a bit of PM I need to deal with but not bad enough to affect anything. I was originally worried about stability but as much abuse as they took early on ( 1 gallon pots since Novemeber, hacked to death, and rehabitatedt) they all look great and that worry is gone. None of my full plant pictures looked in focus so Ill get them next round. JB 01,02,03,04
  3. I think round two will be better in terms of yeild. Rememeber these stayed in a 0ne gallon container for what? 8 months? Poor girls were beat, chopped, widdled at, and kicked around for fun Got roots on the clones for this one very fast as well. Actually all of them are rooting fast in rockwool. If the green is "better", and I am assuming more stoney, do you think it is the sativa influence making it more stoney? If so plant one ought to rock on for that aspect of the plant.
  4. But I live in the land of OZ purple is better even if it is purple hemp =P
  5. JB03 showing some purple already enough worth showing a picture. Seems maybe a few of the others are purpleing up rather well on the stems too - see if later that transfers to buds and leaves.
  6. Ok so 10 days into 12/12 schedule under 1200 watts are four pictures of Jackyl Berry started from seed. I am looking for the purple pheno. There are some differences alredy noted in the pictures as some are starting to flower faster then the others. Here they are in order jb1, jb2,jb3,jb4.
  7. Ok so I been at this hydro stuff since the late 80's. GH nutes , simple and easy as 1 2 3 or 3 2 1 For years I have never been satisfied with the finished product ( GH flora series) as it always seemed brittle and taste never really lasted through the end of the bowl or the end of the joint. This happened even though correctly doing flushes this that or other way. I have tried more flushing systems then the worlds children populations have eaten candy. Growing in dirt (organic) under the same dryng conditions, humidity conditions, temperature, and wattage the product always had a soft texture and smoked in bowls flavor down to the last hit and joints the flavor even got bettr towards the end. I usually am always running a dirt set up and hydro setup simultaneously. So iI finally think I have figured out ( This was by pure accident) a way to transform the plant at the end from using synthetic nutes ( hydropinic ebb and flow) through veg growth until a week before harvvest. During this time really providing the plants with the max amout in correct ratios for finishing up strong with large bud swell ( synthetic nutes )and then covert ,"flush" , finalize the finish to perfection organically the last week to 10 days.( Depends on plant) On a 9 week plant - Here is what I have been doing. After 1st month veg I run two days with 500 ml/40 gallons CLEARX. I pH to 5.5-6.0. This bascially adds sugars and some "wetting" agent and really cleans up the system preparing the plants to really take in the nutes on the next fresh batch. Hydroponic growing is not sterile. Bacteria, fungi, algea all get established through the system. SO the sugars help that population. When i am ready to start the conversion ( The plants will be ready in 7-10 days) I use bat guano and worm casting ( Fox Farm Big Bloom). I also make a tea with jamaican bat guano. 300 ml big bloom/40 gallon, I add a few tablespoons of j bat guano to a 1/2 gallon water and let steep a feww days. The first day i use 250 ml clearx/40 gallons and run 24 hours on normal watering schedule (4 - 15 minute flows daily. 4 30 minure flows daily) I drain refill with water I add the Big bloom as per above and very carefully pour tea at 100 - 200ml in along with FF to 40 gallons fresh. I will run that till the end. Now here is what I discovered i will expain below after this. Each day I eliminate about 2 feeding cycles. (This may vary on different plants a bit.) That means no water flowing for those two times - IN 3 days you are only watering 2 times. I feed the one just beore lights come on and try to time it so the plant will begin to wilt on the bottom half on large leaves and even try to push it to main leaves on buds.before feeding second time. ( Again this can vary based on potter size and plant as to how it will wilt) SO for about 4 days with mentioned solution I make the plants wilt aggressivily before watering second time. On day of harvest she gets nothing and wilts and at lights closing she is harvested.. The harvest will be at an all new level of flavor, production, and texture. Nutrients are inexpensive, high quality, and easy to mix. I discoverd this by accident whren I had a pump issue. I forgot to plug them in and two trays ran off these timers. I left town for three days and when I got back two trays were dead. One tray was being clearx'd at the time and got that treatment for two days feeding the other tray was in full sythetic nutrient at 7 weeks. The tray that had been clearx as normal 8 watering day 1, 6 waterings day 2, then left town for three days no water seeemed to have used it last bit of energy and moisture, there at the end, and there was a dramtic yellowing of big leaves and the big leaves on the buds. The buds looked shiny and beautiful. The other tray in synthetic tray was crispy dead. I just dryed the clearx'd stuff and noticed the texture improvement and when smoking noticed the flavor and smokabiltiy was superior.So I just taylored the feeding as mentioned above, staggered the wattering schedule down gradually, and improved on the accident by 4x. If you use Gh flora ebb and flow or other sythetic nute ebb and flow you are invited to give this a try and report back the improvement you noticed. Hoiped this jarred the ol noggin for some one
  8. Thanks, Kaks JB may have a pheno that will be pure purple black( he has some pics of them) hope i get a purple pheno or two. We can watch for that in the dirt room - two days down 58 to go, purple should show in 4 ish weeks. The hedge is Blue Mystic a great all around plant with floral flavor, large yield, and potent but satisfying level day time high. I do this inside as well as the staple plant for patients. I have thousands of seeds from many parts of the world and many Emerald triangle hydrids going back 10 plus years. The dirt room will see some random action and variety of this collection and who knows what will come of it all. I cant wait to go full cycle on Kaks tangerine and some of the Oaxacan I have collected over the years from down way south. I can also do some of my favorite S.A.G.E. and maybe throw in some various combinations making new seeds for the future. At this point I have visions of naked girls feeding me grapes as other naked girls harvest the buds DO grapes get done before the buds? hmmmm that may present a problem. Ok just kidding my wife would "bobbitize" me if I did that. Haha , anyway most of my outdoor I donate beyond fair and it really is a time to rejoice and share with those in need. I consider it all extra and have a very sick patient I can make oil for ( only means of ingestion) and other patients that get their barrels filled. Most my patients have less then a few years life left and ity is a true blessing seeing them at peacewhile suffering. It really is the best time when those get done outdoors. Just hope the winter is a good hot one,dry, and long this year.....
  9. Ok so here is the new dirt room. I got a hydro room been running 10 years or so but those are all boring and posted many times. I'll post some later for this forum but nothing so new to get ecited about. I get aboyt 30 oz per 1000w in ebb and flow every 8 weeks per tray. Most I hit is 10 oz per plant and havent been able to duplicate that since... Anyway, here is the dirt room 1200 watts HPS dual ballast with 5 plants under it. 4 are Kaks JB and the other is the HGpheno 2. This room will be for experimenting, sorting out new strains, then running theough hydro after I know they are stable. i cant risk experimenting in room where patients rely on product. I am also adding a picture of my mariajuna hedge and finally my grape plants are producing grapes for the first year yea! It took 4 years for them to produce....mmmmmm grapes.....
