    TDS readings of feed water goes DOWN! after adding organic ferts

    All I've found is brown edges on the leaves as a sign of overfeeding which I have. Obviously TDS meters don't work with organic feed. Run through seems the only way to measure now. Getting 200's to 300's TDS there at 5.9 PH (a little acidic, will balance feed water for higher PH. Battling...

    TDS readings of feed water goes DOWN! after adding organic ferts

    Trying to be snide? I'm on my 69th lap around the sun, boy, I was smoking weed probably before your mother spit you out. You work for this site!? Is this the way THCFARMER wants to be known? Take your snide immature attitude and stick it up your ass!

    TDS readings of feed water goes DOWN! after adding organic ferts

    How can it be that my TDS meter can give me a LOWER reading AFTER adding organic fertilizers? How can I keep track of the PPM of my feed water if the TDS method is not compatible with organic growing?

    The Life and Death of the Early Flowers

    correct that is and the flowers drying around it were done in 8 weeks from a PHOTOPERIOD PLANT that was due to harvest in October but had to be taken in June because it PRE-FLOWERED. I guess most here grow indoors and are not familiar. Never mind.

    To Toss Pre-flower'd Plants or Not, that is the question

    The pic that shows the plant at about 10" tall with flowers developing is at only five weeks of age. Even at this young age these flowers are pretty developed (no I didn't get a pic when they first showed) but even the finished product will always be from a Pre-flowerd plant that, like it's...

    To Toss Pre-flower'd Plants or Not, that is the question

    Pre-flowering can happen to photoperiod seeds where, like these. flowers show well before their time like these at only a month old. Photoperiod plants use all the "growing' months from March to October. They are not expected to show flowers until after their vegetative period in which they...

    To Toss Pre-flower'd Plants or Not, that is the question

    Left off an important shot to show new growers what pre-flowers look like. and I couldn't resist another shot of the trichomes! Can't wait for it to cure!

    To Toss Pre-flower'd Plants or Not, that is the question

    I had always read that one may as well toss any plants that pre-flower'd, as they were a waste of time/money. Well, I had three do it on me this year but I let them go. The story in pics below...47 shows how they are raised, outdoor "greenhouse" NO artificial light after 1st leaves; Even so...

    PLANT moisture meter NOT SOIL

    ON target here. I have seen such meters as well just that they are over $200 and that's probably beyond my range just to be more sure when to bottle dried weed. I see several didn't understand me. I have Boveda packs and hygrometers for bottled goods its the hanging stuff I wanted to keep...

    PLANT moisture meter NOT SOIL

    I, like many, already do this. I just use my reg. Ball jars and a quarter sized hygrometer which gives me an accurate reading in about 15 min. I just pulled a few premies and the Gorilla Bomb had 80+% moisture while the Girl Scout Cookie 70% (identical start, treatment etc). This after a 6...

    1st try dry ice hash, A BOON!

    You ABSOLUTELY MUST try dry ice hash!! I was blown away by the LOAD I GOT FILLED A SHORT BALL JAR! With golden pure hash. Orbital polisher made for a huge take I guess, BUT I'm afraid it broke too many trichomes into pieces dumping their oil on the screen. My ice water extractions didn't get...

    160 bag ruined on one run

    Yeah but olive oil is more expensive than a new cheap bag! Somebody should recycle them. I may try this...Do you reclaim the oil? Do you add any oregano or garlic to your olive oil? JUST KIDDING!! Then again maybe not! Result: an infused pasta sauce sounds good!

    160 bag ruined on one run

    NO, since they had warned about leaving it on the stitching, I rinsed with cold water spray right after finishing 30 min. of scrubbing. I've seen bags for a few bucks apiece from China. Who cares about the quality if you're going to toss them after each run. a 160 opening is designated so...

    160 bag ruined on one run

    I buy 91% iso for about 5 bucks a quart but a new bag is about the same price. Yet I don't want to be filling the dump with big 160 5gallon bags either! If you pour that alcohol out into a large glass baking dish and let it off gas for a few days, you'll get some great oil you can gather with...

    160 bag ruined on one run

    I'm concerned with the solvent contact time. The advisor from BagDude said to keep the solvent off the stitching! So as usual in our hobby it's try and see!

    160 bag ruined on one run

    I use turkey bags for decarbing after purging the air out of them. I like decarbing in a closed environment to keep off-gassing of terpenes to a minimum. Then it can go directly to the freezer for a short time to cool them down and bind them back on the plant matter.

    160 bag ruined on one run

    thanks, I'll try this. I didn't soak in the alcohol first. EXPENSIVE with 91% alcohol isn't it? My 91% was brushed on with a nail brush for 30 min. and a new bag is cheaper than a quart of 91% iso online. I also of course rinsed after. I don't have a power washer. Thank you for your reply.

    160 bag ruined on one run

    I harvest in stages and grow two or three phenotypes per season so I really need the bottles. AND, like you I like the process of segregating them into separate bottles for harvest times as well as phenotypes. AND I figured out my cellar holds more than I need so if there is more than it will...
