    Best LED on the market

    I would not spend your money on blackdog. Disclaimer: I don't like black dog because they sold me shiny garbage in the past. Im sure their garbage is shinier now though.....Just my two cents

    Best LED on the market

    IMO the Cree XP-G3 are probably the best diodes available but most of the grow lights nowadays are using mid power diodes and not high power. So many options with these mid powers though and they basically are the same. Lower wattage light strips that grow nice even canopies. If money is no...

    Anyone have any leads on affordable pearlite?

    Rice hull isn't exactly a substitute considering it retains water but depending on where you live you in the country, it can be significantly cheaper and may be a good replacement depending on your grow.

    What's your favorite strain/bean to use? I'm looking for the most potent possible.

    I personally like GG4 but there are a lot of great crosses to search through. I like the search/hunt to be honest though but once you find something that fits you and your liking (keep it). I wouldn't worry about chasing numbers all too much. The % of THC will be different from the tips down.

    Hello from Pittsford, VT.

    Helllo Stephan from a former woodchuck. Great area down near the battle of Hubbarton site. You need to use a particular plastic thickness, don't cheap out on it. Ill find what we use but heat is the major issue and not lack of uv. At least in my experience. https://farmplasticsupply.com/4year-clear

    Just depends whether you like an indica or a sativa leaning strain I guess. Hands down sativa for me. But I'm not a fan of oily resin smoke. Fasting hitting dry sativa all day for me.

    The Dos si Do has some nice color starting. Probably wont keep this one, the G13 or the Blue Gelato. I also probably man handled it the other day and thats why the orange hairs are on top.

    Fabric pots, might use them outside, anything I should know?

    Yeah sounds like a good plan. Burying them will keep your roots cooler. Drainage depends on where you are doing it. If it is swampy you may want to lift them up but other than that they should be good without.

    How would you amend this?

    I think that is going to be awfully heavy and will need peat or coco as well to fluff up the soil. Gypsum is cheap and needed imo and will help. Perhaps sand if peat is not available.

    Advice on ammending black gold organic

    Looking fairly good. Maybe a bit of mineral deficiency although your medium looks awfully dry. I know some like to grow that way but I am not one. I keep the soil moist until the end of flower. You can also help your humidity without the need of a humidifier by using the soil to regulate it...

    Worms, any one put them in their pots?

    I use them in every grow bag. If they end up dying they just become nutrients. Never had any problems using worms though. I try to mix night crawlers and composting worms but they all even out depending on how much food supply they have. The crawlers dig channels up and down the bag well and the...

    Thanks for the suggestions. Not sure what will come from the old spreader but time will tell, Maybe its best to just keep it a spreader and find it a new home. Everything is coming into bloom here finally like this nanking cherry. Chicks everywhere and baseball gloves littered around my yard.

    This John Deere has sat on my property for ages. I think it was the first year they used rubber. I have no need to spread manure in my type of farming but I love the gearing. Any ideas on what I can make this into or do with the chain and gears?

    The OMG is culled. The plant started flower off well but the past few weeks it showed it does not belong in my garden. I had to make an example of it to the others and sawed the stalk slowly in front of them. The G13 may get a run again but Im not sold on dos sis do or Blue Gelato yet. Looking...

    The same people who made money locking MFers up for decades are the same ones making coin. Screw the greed and screw slavery in all forms. Here in the US we are supposed to follow the Constitution but we have just about disregarded that. Big Government makes small people ALWAYS. Now we have...
