    Dude, don't use distilled water! Distilled by definition has nothing dissolved in it so it leaches the nutrients out of your soil before your plants have a chance to use them. It won't be a situation where your plants get zero nutrients, but it does pretty severely cut down on them. There is one...

    Growing Sativas

    Nice. It's a kick ass cross. The seeds I have are from one of the best kept secrets in the business. Cannabiogen's Deluxe Mix. For about $30 you get five of each of Malawi x (Panama x Deep Chunk) , Sandstorm x Peyote Purple (a selected purple line from Bubba Kush) and by far one of the best...

    Growing Sativas

    Yeah, I was just thinking about that. I have some Malawi crosses (seed), but I also have some pure Malawi seed we made from some landrace stock. I can't remember tha name of the seed company we originally got it from. I don't think those guys are even around anymore. They had another strain...

    Is This A Decent Set Up For A First Time Grower.

    Microbes and mycos are where it's at. I wish I had known that back in the 80's and 90's. Back in the good old days growing in just straight up rockwool or hydroton with drippers or power grower buckets and GH Flora all around. It's so much easier to go organic or what they used to call 'bio'. I...

    No problem. It helps me to go over old grows. I'm betting you get the sativa bug from this grow. You picked an awesome strain to start with. And man, Malawi packs a punch! I decided to pop a few Malawi x (Panama x Deep Chunk) because of this thread. Thanks for reminding me ;)

    Growing Sativas

    I don't know about gwheel's experience but when a buddy and I grew Malawi in a greenhouse set up it smelled and tasted like anise and tropical fruit. Depending on the individual plants there was also a flavor I could only describe as 'fresh'. Kind of like when you're super thirsty and drink...

    Is This A Decent Set Up For A First Time Grower.

    Sorry I didn't see this and reply sooner. I'm not the kind of person who ignores people. Anyhow, I'm not too far north. I'm about three hour or so from the Canadian border, but I am at about a mile in altitude in the mountains. We have real winters and great summers with about a week of spring...

    Growing Sativas

    Sorry it took me a bit to get back to you. Alright, so I have a tendency to go the less is more route. That said LST would work for you. Lots of sativas seem to not respond well to topping in my experience unless you're going to veg them up huge. I'm talking a 10 week veg. Monster sized. Your...

    Growing Sativas

    How many are you planning on flowering out together? You've got 32 square feet with workable head room. With 2-3 weeks of veg you could pack 20 in there, but if you veg them a full four weeks you would do better with fewer and have better results than forcing young plants. It can stress young...

    Hello. You Can Call Me Dyers.

    Yeah, I had a profile here a while back, but mostly I was on Overgrow back in the day and ICMag. I dumped coms when I did some travelling with my wife and was in and out of the hospital having repeated surgeries with an extended time in recovery. We're talking years here. All is good now though...

    Is This A Decent Set Up For A First Time Grower.

    Here is that label and a couple examples of plants grown in soil with Alaska ferts and the mycorrhizal inoculant. None of these plants are older than about five weeks. Most are closer to four. I'm transitioning them into flower today. I'll keep showing you what I'm doing with them and how...
