    To much weed...

    I never thought i would say this but I consistently grow more smoke than I can smoke. I give away bag after bag and sell a zip for a couple of bills here and there and I still have masons from last year outdoors and masons with last winters indoor grow and now there's gonna be a couple dozen...

    Fearing the frost...

    I've got two buds who have some really good buds coming along but they definitely need more time. The moment there is even a threat of a light frost they're gonna chop. The average first frost date here is 10/20. That just the average date and some years it can be another three weeks b4 we get a...

    Staggered Harvesting.

    This is the first time I've grown WW for some unknown reason and they are doing ok but I still have a question. There is a wide Disparity in when each plant will finish. Usually I can chop everything at pretty much the same time but not this run. Are Widows known for this trait? Wide...

    10 Days In The Dark..

    I dont know how advanced it is but I've got a problem. I'll be heading out of town for 10 days just as most of my plants are finishing. If I chop them b4 I go it will mean that they hang for the duration of my absence. I expect that when I get back they will be toast and over dried big time...

    What The Flush?

    For years I flushed for a few weeks with molasses and didnt notice any difference it's just what people recommended. Than for a couple of years I used a commercial product designed for flushing AND designed for taking my money. Didnt notice much difference with that chit although I cant remember...

    Botryis Beating Strains.??

    Well my winter crop took longer than expected but here comes summer and an outdoor grow is of course on the schedule. I don't know what the weather conditions were like in your neck of the woods last season but we were damp for months and the botrytis loved it. In my circle of friends we all...

    I Burnt Out Two Meanwell Drivers!

    This has been the grow from HELL and it's not going to stop until I chop. It's just more bad luck that I trashed two of three Meanwell drivers. I couldn't figure out what happened until I saw some sparks when I closed the garage door. The door had worn thru the Romex. Funny thing is that the...

    White Widow Dying

    IDK chit but I've got 5 or 6 White Widows trying to make a go of it and one of them has some major issues. They all had a rough start and are behind schedule but any guesses what the problem is with this under achiever? All subjected to the same conditions.

    60 Beans 12 Plants. Rough Start Grow.

    If I had new beans to pop I would have scrapped this grow and started fresh. They were all purchased presumably viable seeds and for the life of me I can't pin down the prob. I figure 40% popped at least a little and hit dirt and of those 24 only 12 ever saw light. Even after becoming seedlings...

    Can't Solve The Riddle?

    12 plants out of 60 beans! I was only looking for 12 but I wanted the 12 best phenos. Same as always... into H2O for 48 hours then onto cheap colorless paper towels and paper plates. Should have been a slam dunk. Of the first 30 about half cracked and thru out a root but only 4 stuck their...

    Botrytis Resistant Strains?

    It seems like whether it's old standbys or new varieties Botrytis is becoming more of a problem. Back in the 80's when I was growing the original Skunk and NL bud rot was rare. Now it doesn't matter if I grow seeds claiming to be Sk1 or NL or something "new" with wildly differing phenotypes in...

    Light Rails And Lazy Susans?

    I've got some casters and plywood as well as access to some powerful little electric motors. I have to choose the RPMs I want. Has anyone tried growing on a lazy Susan type set up? I figure 1 RPM is sufficient for a 4ft circle but would 3 or 5 be better? I'm just thinking out loud but it feels...

    Breeding For Disease Resistance.

    We now have thousands of varieties to choose from and THC levels at 25-30% but somewhere along the line we've bred out the disease resistance in exchange for appearance, yield and T %. When I started buying seeds it was straight up Skunk and NL Not Skunk number 1,2,3,4 or whatever but just plain...

    Traveling With Weed Stateside?

    I'm heading to Alaska for some King salmon and Halibut fishing and I'm thinking it's gonna be the ideal location for a good cup of coffee and a solid wake and bake. This leads to my question. Can I fly from mj legal Massachusetts to I believe mj legal Alaska with a stop in mj legal Seattle with...

    A Shaky First Leg Of The Journey.

    Well I'm on my way to Cuba and against every good bit of advise not to do so I am transporting a small amount of weed. Not a small amount by cuban standards however. I've been to dozens of countries from Russia to Estonia and I have taken weed with me to every one. I may have found a place where...

    Yikes! I've Lost My Power And It's Still Out! What To Do?

    Powers out!! Week six of flower halfway thru their 12 hours daytime cycle. IDK for sure but I hear they may be out until AM. I would value some guidance on how best NOT to derail this train bound for glory. Would it help to roll back to a 13 hours on 11 hours off cycle. Considering this is New...

    Growing Males??

    I've got 15 seeds that are claimed to be Skunk #1 and I have a place to grow out a couple of males. Is the first pollen a male produces as good as the pollen produced by the same plant when it matures? My goal is to cut them out as early as possible and replace them with short seasoned indicas...

    First Time Fun With Automatics.

    Trying out a new camera. Maybe I'll go back to the phone. Hey these autos are fun! I don't know if I'll do them again but WTH. Any guesstimates on how much longer the Headband is gonna need. Looks and smells great but zero color in the tricomes. I like a darkish amber but could it possibly need...

    2 Out Of 12 Hesheed On Me. Arg!

    Riddle me this. Out of a dozen plants in my grow only one variety is duplicated. That variety is Bubbledawg/Chicle and I HAD two of them. The first one hesheed on me and was ejected from the game. Well I was just downstairs inspecting and putting the girls to bed and too my dismay I noticed a...

    What Flavor Is Your Weed?

    I'm seeing more and more chit designed to give weed a specific flavor. I've always flushed for a couple weeks with molasses but I think it's benefits don't amount to much and I certainly don't think I can note a taste difference. I know there are a lot of guys using Bud Candy or even things that...
