    Um gonna create a thread with all the white rhino pictures I can find I've grown over the years to compile for future pheno hunting cuz at this rate it's looking like my white rhino cut might be gone I still have hope but the leads are definitely narrowing!

    The wife and I spent the weekend in Yachats, Oregon which is on the coast south of Newport.  I brought the fishing poles and got skunked throwing a Gulp ghost shrimp on the bottom.  
     
    I still do like to climb around those basalt rocks in the surf knowing that I just might haul in a nice rockfish.
     
    I ripped my jeans at the inseam and got soaked so it is me, 0, Pacific Ocean 1,

    I personally prefer to hang my plants and let them dry before I start the trim and then do a manicure and then into jars for curing I used to wet trim but don't do that anymore and haven't for a while dry trim is best in my opinion

    popeye! got a reaction from EDDIEKIRK in Question concerning a grow from a few years ago....   
    Hahaha it's not that what you did was dangerous at all it seems like you did everything u could to do the root drench properly and I commend u for that. We are always learning as growers it's the second we think we have nothing else to learn that we know we are in trouble truely ignorance is not bliss in growing. But you have a open mind and a willingness to learn new things so I think you will do just fine just dont feel afraid to ask for help I'm still constantly learning and working to educate myself as well every year I try to improve on what I learned the previous year. I simply want to help others with knowledge and experience I have learned over time and still am changing things I need to update my clone thread cuz I've changed that as well and I started to dry and cure different as of last year so as I said it's a constant learning process for all of us! You got this man!

    Hey buddy so let's talk a bit about neem oil I absolutely support the use of Neem Oil as IPM for your plants and that's what I use myself as well but I do not recommend using it as a soil drench. What I do instead is use neem meal and I will make a tea that is brewed for less then 24 hours usually and water with that u will have some oils from this but not nearly as much as using the neem oil and also there are a few other benefits to doing the soil drench with neem meal instead of oil the meal will also provide some nutrients to the plants as well the kelp I usually use, the combo can really help fight back any bad bugs u may get in your soil. Also another reason I dont recommend use of neem oil in soil drench is possible toxicity while this isn't extremely  common it can definitely occur and when it does it's not pretty so I always recommended using the oil for leaf surface and the neem meal for the soil/roots.
     
    Side note karanja is a cousin to the neem tree and is another oil u can alternate between with neem oil for some pretty fantastic results and the karanja smells good in my opinion kinda like dandelions lol  
     
    I hope this helps you out a little bit 
    I will also try to make a little more extensive section about neem in my organic thread here soon which might provide a bit more information about neem for you as well

    Hello so a few years ago I was doing an indoor, stealth grow using Fox Farms Ocean Forest, using an unknown bag-seed strain (from seed) under 5000k CFLs.  After a few months of veg, I isolated the six females and removed all of the males.  The health of all of the plants was very good at this time (~ 2 months from seed).
     
    Then two plants began to develop black spots on the leaves while still in veg.  I did a google search and many posts pointed to root disease issues.  I wanted to do things as “organically” as possible, so I began to use Neem oil in my watering regimen.  I would add the recommended amount in water to treat “root rot” (a bacterial infection of the roots, I believe?).  I used NO other fertilizers nor additives until this problem arose. 
     
    After this, the new growth fan leaves had NO black spots at all and the plants eventually flowered and harvested (of course the young, diseased fan leaves were culled and these plants were harvested and really made a fine end-product).  It is really incredible what home-grown Cannabis can produce!
     
    Since then I have intended to use Neem oil in all of the soil at the dosage recommended by Neem oil packaging instructions.  
     
    Would anyone care care to give their opinion on this idea?  In other words, I intend to use some Neem oil in ALL of the soil I use BEFORE I grow anything in it, to avoid the black spot issue.
     
    I know I am getting in trouble with the natural soil folks out there, but I don’t have the ability to cultivate my own organic soil, so Fox Farms is what I will have to make-do with until later.
     
    Thank you everyone!

    Hey guys long time no see sorry about that sometimes life gets busy! Well another year is in the bag and this year we did things differently I actually dug out my grow space this year and filled it with layers of straw and soil that I made last year same soil I made for these posts and I ran my plants in it this year it made a huge difference having the plants tapped straight into the ground this year and not stuck in pots! However the whether this year was rough so wasnt a ideal season I will be getting some more information going on this forum here soon and explain a but more about how to set up a outdoor grow that after initial set up will cost u next to nothing to maintain each year! 
     
    I'll post one of my favorite pics of the year!

    I have not had any more luck at Wilsonville pond and I have fished there almost every day since catching that one that I posted on.  I still get “blow-ups” on my frog, but I haven’t been able to “seal the deal” since catching that one.  My next devious plan is to catch some perch, then use them as live bait under a cork....

    Hey also I wanted to share a modification to the frogs that I use that I really believe helps to get the bass to bite the “body” of the frog (where the hooks are) and not the tail - I simply cut about half of the rubber “legs” off.  I have also seen people use a trailer hook to do the same thing but I have not tried that.  I really believe this helps to get more hook-ups.....hope this helps!

    Oh and also this is a fifteen inch fish, not twelve....I had forgotten the taped length markers on my rod...not to brag or anything....:)

    Oh I forgot to tell how I caught it.....so when the fish blew up on the frog, I paused, set the hook then “SNAP!!!”—- my braided line broke and I said, “ oh fiddlesticks!”- but then I realized the line broke right at my reel and the fish had no where to go with all the weeds so I found my remaining line on the ground and pulled the fish in manually..  It was foolish of me to be using 10lb braid in this pond...I should have and will now use at least 20lb braid at a minimum.

    Hey I just caught this twelve incher out of Wilsonville pond ( it is just west of I-5 right on the Clackamas/Marion County line just south of where I-5 crosses the Willamette).  In the picture you can see the frog still in its mouth, I must have had 20 blowups but only one taker.....  The top water frog bite is crazy ON right now, mornings and evenings it seems like.
