    Republican Congressman Fails to Punish Students With Drug Convictions

    Partisanship is an anachronism, and pure and utter horsehockey! That being said, I just left a message telling him that he's my new hero for having the courage to do the right thing even though it would be the harder, more unpopular way. I called him a true American. There is a number for his...

    How to deal with really high electricity use.

    About the only place I can believe that would happen would be communist China. MAYBE in the now defunct USSR, but CERTAINLY not here in the US or Canada where we still pay lip service to personal liberties and freedoms. Beleiev me, the Cops know we worry about that as much as FLIR The Power...

    400w hps yield

    I was thinking around 3 MAYBE 4 if you are growing bushes. If you're doing clones, go SOG and you'll get about 1/4 to 1/2 oz per. 12 plants are a lot of plants to be under 1 400w light if you're gonna be doing bushes. I ran 20 under 4 400w lights, and never got more than 1.5 lb by doing bushes...

    timer trouble

    I have done this myself on more than one occasion (Goddam cheap assed timers!!), but most of this is from reading others thoughts on the forums, so although it seems to have worked for me, it may not give you the same results. My lights are on a 12/12 schedule with timers, the A/C is on a...

    Get rid of those STICKY FINGERS!!!

    Pam, Veg Oil, Butter, oleo, they are all equally effective as they break down the oils to a more soluble form. After that, a good wash with soap and water will leave any surface terpine free. I have tried to clean with ISO and was disappointed with the results as well. I keep a straight...

    cheapest lights

    Dude, If you call around to some demolition companies (look under construction contractors). You can buy both MH and HPS complete lights for around $40 apiece. I bought 4 MH and 4 HPS 400w lights for $300 (Bulbs and passable reflectors incl) Tell them you wanna boost security on your property...

    Breeding in Odor Control.

    Anybody out there trying to reduce or breed out the heavy strong "AROMA" generated by plants in flower? I was gifted some beans (JHxViking) by a guy on another site that grew out with practically NO aroma. I'm on a 3rd round of clones from the original beans, and I'm amazed at the lack of...

    a/c 4000w bare bulb grow with a window banger

    Reverse the fans. You need more air coming in than going out to keep up the flow. If your exhaust fan moves more air than is coming in, it's efficiency is exponentially reduced. You can't suck 400 Cf of air out of a room with nothing coming in to take it's place. Can you put in some passive...

    Yellowing keaves querstion?

    Yep! pH can definitely cause a "lock-out". Adding more of whats locked out only compounds the problem. Check your pH pen. Do you have a reagent pH test kit? I use one to back up my pen readings. If your pH is within tolerances, then I'd say it's either a Ca, Mg or both issue. Most tap...

    clones or seeds

    After the 3rd grow, I got a hold of some really good genetics. I grew them from seed, and cloned the hell outta them during veg (obviously after ascertaining the sex). I then had clones (a BUTTLOAD of them) ready to take their moms place in the artificial sun. I see this as beneficial in 2...

    Yellow edges, light colored tips

    If you haven't fed any nutes, I wouldn't be worried about salt buildup quite yet unless the soil had a buildup in it already. I panicked at every little spot, yellow area, curl, etc. that I saw on my plants. They just do some odd things for no apparent reason. If it appears to be a chronic (On...

    no visable trichomes

    I've never grown out WW, but the strain I'm growing out now (On my 3rd round with it) won't win any prizes for trich production or display, but DAMMIT MAN, it's devastatingly good dope. If the strain normally crystals out a lot, then doesn't, I'd SAY something aint quite right.

    Help!!!!!!!!!!! Leaves brownin, yellowing!!!

    Hydrated lime will act faster than dolomite lime. But I think if your pH is in line, I'd try to find something that wouldn't screw with pH first. Super-Thrive would be a good choice to try, as would cal-mag. But Cal-Mag will raise the pH a pretty good bit, so be careful with it also. Always...

    Leaves rusting!!!:(

    What is it about the 2nd to 3rd week of flower? If I'm gonna have problems, that's where it starts. I use Botanicare Cal-Mag. I've been researching a "home grown" substitute for cal mag, but have yet to find a decent one. A guy (An organics guru on SEVERAL forums) once posted about steeping...

    RadioShack ????

    I don't feel quite SO bad about it taking me a few days to figure THAT ONE out!! I shake way too bad to use a 'scope free hand!!! The 'scopes are great for judging the readiness of the trichs and that's about it. Use a loupe for sexing until you get it down. I can do it by eye now. I have a...

    feminized seed question

    It DOES make sense to allow a girl to mature before she starts giving birth. However, many folks who start from seed will flip them at a certain height (18 or so in.) One guy even started seedlings out under 12/12. Personally, If I was in any kind of hurry I'd do clones. Pop a flat or 2 of...

    indoor security

    Anyone ever hear of a dealer turning in his/her customers to the cops for buying too much product? The Edison Co. aint gonna "turn you in" or alert the cops in any way unless you're stealing power or don't pay your bill. Your usage patterns are out there for the cops to look at, and they know...

    How to deal with really high electricity use.

    The power company aint gonna narc you out for using too much power. That's like telling the cops that so & so is buying way too much of your product. Not happenin'. Now your USAGE patterns are a dead giveaway, but as was said a couple of posts up, pay your bill and pay it on time!!! Keep it out...

    About lights.

    I looked at the "Conversion/Dual-Spectrum" bulbs, and found that in order to get the best of both worlds, you sacrifice lumens. That sacrifice can be quite substantial. I ran a test grow this year growing everyone under 2 400w MH, and 2 400w HPS, with an area of mixed light in the middle. I...

    Tennessee any objective advice?

    Where in Tenn R U? General location, not specifics. I'm in NW Ga, (I can drive a golf ball into Chattanooga from my front porch). I know a couple of guys/gals here that grow, and for the most part we don't fear the cops. Just use common sense. DON"T TELL ANYONE and let them live. FLIR serves...
