Thank you my brother. Already, this community has made me feel very welcome and accepted. Definitely much needed through this lockdown.

So! It would seem that mitigating the cold 59*F nights to 69*F has exponentially accelerated my garden.
I just received my new 3x3 gorilla shorty tent (3x3x5’8”) for hanging/drying to contain odour. I will have a 6x24 vortex Lite carbon filter scrubbing the tent. It’ll be a challenge, but I’ll find a way to dry these ladies “low and slow”.
Picture 1- Gorilla tent sliding into place like a well fit glove, providing a much needed solution for the limited space and overwhelming needs of this small, craft cannabis garden.
Picture 2- The gorilla 3x3x5’8” shorty tent. Wow! Now I see why these tents are so bloody expensive. I can already guarantee I’ll have this tent for the rest of my life and it will be passed down to my son when he builds his garden. What a superior product.
wouldn’t buy anything else, gorilla is built to last!
i absolutely love mine!

Hey man! What's good. Just checking in to share some love and positive vibes. That Thc bomb pheno looks fantastic! I have like 4 more Thc Bomb seeds I hope to get a "durka durr" pheno in my pack.

Did you decide a good method for drying? I'm from the school of slow and low that is the tempo... lol

Also I wanted to touch on your new Gorilla tent.. Good buy huh? I'm in the market for a 4x4 tent for a new veg area. So many choices...

Anyways brother very cool journal so far, thank you so much for sharing your experience and expertise! Please keep it up. Good work! -Ron

Dude! I hope you get a durka pheno too. The smoke is actually quite amazing. My goal with cultivation is purely medicinal. If it relieves the physical pain, it stays until it doesn’t anymore. This pheno is the bomb for pain relief and stress relief. Having harvested it early it still has couch lock but I’m totally ok with that.
So for drying? Yes. Slow and low bro. That is my tempo fo show. So far with my current setup I am able to achieve 52% humidity @ 64*F. I have yet to install the carbon filter in the tent so I’m sure that’ll affect the temps and humidity slightly.
As for the tent purchase, yeah bro. So many choices. I have the gorilla 3x3 shorty for drying my plants and then I have the Secret Jardin L160 dual chamber tent. I love both the tents. The gorilla may be overkill in my opinion. The secret jardin is still excellent quality and much cheaper. But if you have the space and you’re looking to veg, take a serious look at the L160 and the L100. I’ll post up a vid for ya.
like always bro. Thanks for the kind words. I appreciate it. I’m a fan of following your journal as well. Be blessed bro!
oh! How’s your nuggs drying up? Sample any yet?

Secret Jardin huh? Very cool ill for sure check them out. Wife was like why they need a tent they goin campin? She got jokes.

I really like that L160 with that I could veg/clone and then double the size of my flower room. That's the goal. I just messaged the light company about another light for the space.

Cool video brother thank you for the all the info!

I still haven't tried the Bomb flower as its still just a little wet. I've been fighting with myself to stay away from it till its dry...lol But I did lay out all the sugar shake and it was nice and dry yesterday. Got about 2 ounces of fire shake.

The plan was to give it to my nephew who has a rosin press and let him press it for me. But after doing some research I learned that pressing the trim isn't the best way to get good rosin. The best way is to make bubble hash, then press that. Man bro I aint got no time for all that right now.

So... I still had all the gear it takes to make bho. I took an ounce and blew a 4 gram slab of some fire ass bho. Golden goodness. And POTENT. I have super high tolerance and this stuff... works.

Nice balanced hybrid stone. I can tell if they would have flowered longer they would have been more indica leaning. Almost glad I took them early as I don't really care for that couch lock buzz. I'm already fat and lazy, glue me to the couch and the plants wont get watered...lol I got shit to do.

How's life? Me, I'm blessed and highly favored! How are the plants? Would you say you have Thc Bomb dialed in? I have got her figured out in veg for sure. I got some cal mag and thrive for early flower this run. Hopefully that helps.

I have a Bomb in flower right now at 5 weeks and man is she getting pretty. I didn't top her this run and just let her go. She has an easy foot long top cola going. Covered in crystals. Ill share some pictures when I can get the wife down there to take some.

OK you green thumbed child of God, as usual I have gotten long winded...lol I hope all is well with you and yours. Keep your head up and your RH down. Ttyl.-Ron

For the money, I really can’t see the L160 getting beat out for function, value and availability. We all know how big of a pain in the ass the gorilla tents can be to obtain.
Your wife isn’t wrong! WTF happened to building a room? I’m old school too, hence the flower chamber being an actual room. These tents do work, but you’ll never best a room designed for cultivating.
The trim off these bombs is a literal sugar rush! Yes, to make proper rosin, you have to spend all day in ice water with your trim, making a mess, over-passing the shake.... when you could just dry the shake and get a few screens and do dry sift. Takes 1/10 of the time, no mess, no drying the bubble hash and the quality is superb.
Oh dude! How I love my bho too. I have the glass blow kit too. Last batch I yielded over an ounce from trim. Only issue I have with bho is how it completely destroys ones tolerance.
From what I could tell, we had The same pheno (satIva leaning pheno needing the full 10 weeks as stated on the THC bomb breeders write up). The durka pheno was an early finisher indica dom for sure. However both still a hybrid in every sense. I have a third pheno too! Her name is “cookie cutter”. She is a very short, very dark, definitely indica dom plant. I almost wonder if she’s not even a bomb and the breeder just threw in some random seed. Lol.
You’re gonna see the bombs beg for that calmag and revive. I’m still supplementing every feed! These girls wanna eat! The three durka clones I have flowering are begging for a feed every other day now! They are serious pigs bro. Lol.
So one thing I definitely learned about the THC bomb, they do NOT like being fimmed. They are ok with being topped but it will stunt them drastically. With the clones I did not top or fim and they are doing the best out of all the bombs.
I will reiterate one more time. These bombs wanna eat. And when I say eat, I mean eat! Full strength everything and they’ll keep begging for more. Getting the feeds dialed in is going to take me the longest time for sure. Because she’s such a darn pig. My Bruce banners can’t even handle half of what the bombs demand nutrient wise!
Ok bro. We’re one in the same. If we start talking about cultivation, we can’t shut up. Birds of a feather, right? Hahaha.
be blessed my American brother. Stay safe and get Biden out of office. The man can barely form a coherent sentence. Lmao.

I do the dry sift method to but I don’t cure. I dry and throw in the freezer. Then I use micron screens. Thennnnn I press it. Lol comes out almost like a light coco color. Lol

Exactly! Same dude. Save time AND produce a better product. Bubble hash is beautiful but it’s a labour of love. A love I don’t really have.
Oh! And dude! Thank you for the FOTM nomination. That was very kind of you.

Haha no problem. Just when I saw the photo I knew I needed to do it. Lol
Also whenever I made bubble hash the product always turned dark brown when drying no matter the strain I used and it made the bubble hash rosin dark too. Lol

Ah ha!!! Yes! Exactly! That’s because you need a freeze dryer. Bubble will ALWAYS air dry brown. That’s why they can charge $2500 for a small freeze dryer. I’ll pass. Hahahaha.
yeah bro. Again. Thank you. Means a lot.

Haha Give Biden a break the man is 197 years old. My wife voted for him. I cant vote cuz I used to be a crook and grow illegally...lol And if we get this so called $1400 stimulus cash Ima buy me a new flower light. That will make him my favorite POTUS ever! lol I can be bought. Flower lights make me happy.

Got me 4 grams from 28 grams trim...so fire! I got so stoned last night I woke up with a weed hangover...lol

I thought I had a high tolerance but I been smokin that dispensary wax and that crap is probably made from the stuff they swept off the floor. This is on a whole nother level!

Went in the drying room this morning and they are getting there, few more days for the larger stuff. Ill probably jar the little stuff tomorrow. I'll for sure let you know how mine smoke.

Yes they are some hungry biatches for sure. I almost get scared at how much I've been feeding them. Nitrogen whores all the way up till like week 5-6 flower. Like you said the other strain I have would fry if I fed them as much. That's what I did wrong last run...starved the poor girls. This time more nutes, more trichs.

O.K. bro I could go on and on... this plant intrigues the shit out of me! Yes birds of a feather! We will talk again man. Peace love and frosty buds! -Ron

See if it were me that 4 grams wouldnt be enough for me to continue with that plant. If it doesn’t produce 20% return I don’t keep em for my extractions. Lol

I completely agree! Plus my wife who is a flower smoker is a complete weed snob. If it aint 20% and above she wont smoke it. Yeah, that was 28 grams of the trim... I think it equals out to like 16%. If I got that from the flower I would discontinue that strain for sure. Trim was triched out but quite a bit early and a little leafy, so I'm happy with the yield. We will see what the flower yields next week probably.

The stitching on the front zipper has already let go on my brand new gorilla 3x3 shorty🤬 Why?!?!?

Anyway, today was a good day otherwise. Lots going on. Like usual. Having my sons help in the garden is always a pleasure and a blessing. I’m finding having different scheduled crops is taking up A LOT of my time preparing feeds for each crop. I may be biting off more than I can chew. I’m also amazed at how fast these girls are consuming the nutes! Ima be a broke ass soon!

Have a good night everyone. Be blessed. Enjoy the short video.

Ok ok. Fine. I’ll give the shell of a man a break. It’s not like he’s running the country anyway. His VP is doing all the work. Can’t figure out which one is more terrifying tho... I digress. No politics Fabz!
Lol.
4gr from 28gr trim? Wow. That’s actually really good. What method do you use to purge the butane?
One of the main reasons why I started cultivating again was because of the overwhelming complaints about the OCS (Ontario cannabis store. Government run cannabis sales) cannabis. People were complaining of severe paranoia, anxiety, dysphoria, sickness, tightness of respiratory system, breathing problems and even one complaint stating that the gov has nanobots in the cannabis with supposed evidence. I hate the shit. It’s sooooo expensive (1/8 can be as much as $90 cdn). Fuck the dispensary wax, weed, concentrated, edibles, whatever.

So I wanted to let you know that I used the full strength revive (@5ml per litre), which to me seems insane, on the three Durkettes (durka-durr clones) yesterday with their feed. Almost IMMEDIATELY the plants went from a lime green on the old growth, yellowish on the new growth, to a solid dark green within an hour. Wow! Complete 180. THEN, when I checked on them this morning, they had grown exponentially over night and the new growth has the yellowish hue to it again. Is it possible that this plant needs a constant supply of readily available nitrogen? Maybe that’s why the “cookie cutter” THC bomb pheno (video) is such a dark, deep green of a plant being in an autopot. Makes me wonder and drives me deeper down the rabbit hole. Lol. The 5ml per litre of revive was used with cal-mag and the complete line of AN products. This being the first time using the full 5mls per litre of revive WITH full strength nutes and additives, proves how big of nitrogen whores these THC Bombs are.
I wanna see that nugg all dried up and I’d love to hear how it smokes so far.
Peace my blessed, green thumbed brother. Chat soon.

Yeah I actually was a member of another forum...RIU but the politics over there got to deep for me. I'm not really into the whole thing. I've been a felon since 1989 so I lost my right to vote and don't really care. I know our government is just a puppet for the rich American corporations. I'll stop at that...lol

Four grams wasn't to bad for a trim run I guess. For the purge I used the ole oven at 200f put the wax in a Pyrex plate and agitated it till it stopped bubbling. Waited for it to dry scraped it and smoked it. I know that's not the idea way to purge it, and if I don't get my bubble bags and press soon Ill invest in a vacuum chamber to purge in. I would rather just get the bags and press but I'm havin a hard time talkin the wife into the $800 I need for them.

Don't get me started on these damn Detroit dispensaries...real crooks. Id rather smoke my trim run, butane laden wax, then their over priced swept off the floor trash any day! I have a thousand horror stories about the shops around here. Up until this harvest I have been spending like 14k a year at dispensaries. CRAZY! No more my brother, the Lord has blessed me with ample. My cup overflows!

Its good to hear your getting your phenos dialed in. Me... I have 24 plants going right now, three of them are sick...all three Thc Bombs..lol Two in veg were doing fine till yesterday I fed them 3/4 strength nutes. 2ml revive and 2ml cal mag...both were sick with major rust spots on their fan leaves this morning...

These are clones from the same mother so it makes sense if one gets sick so does the other. They are just beautiful plants too. Like 3 1/2 foot tall bushes. I'll try and get some pictures tomorrow and give you an idea of how they look. They really are one of the most finicky strains I've ever tried to cultivate.

Compared to them, the Made of Honor basically grew themselves. Very low maintenance and stayed healthy and vigorous the whole run.

So far I tried some of the bottom stuff off only one of the Thc bomb phenos. Pheno #2 is the taller larger of my two phenos but has looser flowers. The small stuff is just ok to be honest. VERY early. This plant could have went another 2-4 weeks easy. Then it would have been some fire. Ill let the next one go as long as she needs. We aint in no hurry.

Haven't tried pheno #1 yet she's the shorter denser plant. Looks a little frostier too. I will update for sure. The flowers are not very pretty but I will take some pictures in the morn when I start to jar it up.

I also just wanted to mention really quick how awesomely cool it is that you are including your boys in this passion of ours. I have three children all grown and gone now. Two daughters who were and are completely anti cannabis. They grew up in my chaotic drug fueled world and were anti drug when they were five years old...lol (Good thing.)

I would try to include them in my many gardening adventures but they just were not interested... My son however was my little grow buddy. He is the oldest and as a child was my shadow. I taught this kid everything I know. (Good and Bad.) We did gorilla grows back in the day out in the woods and would take fishing polls just to act like we were fishing, when we were really checking and tending our plants...lol

I know its bad but I let him smoke with me when he was 16. I didn't want him sneaking around smoking like I did, so I let him partake. I don't regret it one bit. He is 33 now, has a masters degree, and made over 100k last year. He got married and purchased a new house just a few months ago. I am a proud papa! Now its time for some grand babies.

I tell you this because, today on the phone he asked if I could help him start a grow in his new home. He said that time we spent growing this healing plant together are some of the best times of his childhood. He thanked me for being such a real and honest father. He said he needed to produce some that chronic his dad cultivates. I was touched, and thought of you and your boys. Keep it up brother that time you are spending with them will pay off a thousand fold!

I was a horrible father but one thing I did was spend time with them. That's really all they want and need past a certain age. Although I'm a thug, been to prison three times, multiple drug rehabs, and literally dozens of psych wards. My children are all successful productive members of society because of that. God is good! TTYL bro. Sorry I'm so loquacious tonight and every night...lol -Ron

It’s been 8 days since I placed the Durka pheno in the drying chamber. After 8 days at 50-60%RH @ 15-19*C, she’s ready to be manicured and jarred. She is one DANK BITCH! Like @ReeferRon, this pheno could have gone at very least one more week, but I needed the room and she was stressing due to my improper soil potting of her at the beginning (soil became far too compact) She had to go. I will be back with a harvest report and smoke report. Be blessed!

Yeah I actually was a member of another forum...RIU but the politics over there got to deep for me. I'm not really into the whole thing. I've been a felon since 1989 so I lost my right to vote and don't really care. I know our government is just a puppet for the rich American corporations. I'll stop at that...lol

Four grams wasn't to bad for a trim run I guess. For the purge I used the ole oven at 200f put the wax in a Pyrex plate and agitated it till it stopped bubbling. Waited for it to dry scraped it and smoked it. I know that's not the idea way to purge it, and if I don't get my bubble bags and press soon Ill invest in a vacuum chamber to purge in. I would rather just get the bags and press but I'm havin a hard time talkin the wife into the $800 I need for them.

Don't get me started on these damn Detroit dispensaries...real crooks. Id rather smoke my trim run, butane laden wax, then their over priced swept off the floor trash any day! I have a thousand horror stories about the shops around here. Up until this harvest I have been spending like 14k a year at dispensaries. CRAZY! No more my brother, the Lord has blessed me with ample. My cup overflows!

Its good to hear your getting your phenos dialed in. Me... I have 24 plants going right now, three of them are sick...all three Thc Bombs..lol Two in veg were doing fine till yesterday I fed them 3/4 strength nutes. 2ml revive and 2ml cal mag...both were sick with major rust spots on their fan leaves this morning...

These are clones from the same mother so it makes sense if one gets sick so does the other. They are just beautiful plants too. Like 3 1/2 foot tall bushes. I'll try and get some pictures tomorrow and give you an idea of how they look. They really are one of the most finicky strains I've ever tried to cultivate.

Compared to them, the Made of Honor basically grew themselves. Very low maintenance and stayed healthy and vigorous the whole run.

So far I tried some of the bottom stuff off only one of the Thc bomb phenos. Pheno #2 is the taller larger of my two phenos but has looser flowers. The small stuff is just ok to be honest. VERY early. This plant could have went another 2-4 weeks easy. Then it would have been some fire. Ill let the next one go as long as she needs. We aint in no hurry.

Haven't tried pheno #1 yet she's the shorter denser plant. Looks a little frostier too. I will update for sure. The flowers are not very pretty but I will take some pictures in the morn when I start to jar it up.

I also just wanted to mention really quick how awesomely cool it is that you are including your boys in this passion of ours. I have three children all grown and gone now. Two daughters who were and are completely anti cannabis. They grew up in my chaotic drug fueled world and were anti drug when they were five years old...lol (Good thing.)

I would try to include them in my many gardening adventures but they just were not interested... My son however was my little grow buddy. He is the oldest and as a child was my shadow. I taught this kid everything I know. (Good and Bad.) We did gorilla grows back in the day out in the woods and would take fishing polls just to act like we were fishing, when we were really checking and tending our plants...lol

I know its bad but I let him smoke with me when he was 16. I didn't want him sneaking around smoking like I did, so I let him partake. I don't regret it one bit. He is 33 now, has a masters degree, and made over 100k last year. He got married and purchased a new house just a few months ago. I am a proud papa! Now its time for some grand babies.

I tell you this because, today on the phone he asked if I could help him start a grow in his new home. He said that time we spent growing this healing plant together are some of the best times of his childhood. He thanked me for being such a real and honest father. He said he needed to produce some that chronic his dad cultivates. I was touched, and thought of you and your boys. Keep it up brother that time you are spending with them will pay off a thousand fold!

I was a horrible father but one thing I did was spend time with them. That's really all they want and need past a certain age. Although I'm a thug, been to prison three times, multiple drug rehabs, and literally dozens of psych wards. My children are all successful productive members of society because of that. God is good! TTYL bro. Sorry I'm so loquacious tonight and every night...lol -Ron
No politics. Got it bro. My father was extremely passionate about sticking up for the little guy, so I think that’s why I poke the political bear from time to time. I apologize. No one wants to hear it.
I’m manicuring Durka right now. Wow bro. This plant is insane! Pure medicine. Instantly relieves my pain, anxiety and puts me in a very calm, relaxed state with zero anxiety or paranoia.
Thanks for sharing the memories of your boy. I’m so impressed. Kids just want your time. Nothing more. An absent father is worse than no father. My son is turning 17 in 3 days. He already has a prescription for his severe OCD and anxiety. It has truly helped turn his life around. I know that by investing this time into him with the garden, it will prepare him for so much more in life. Congrats to your boy for being so successful. My son is a straight A student as well and rarely gets into trouble. He’s a very good kid. And having him live with me for the last year has proven to be the best thing to happen to me in a long time. You should be proud of yourself Ron.
Ok. Gotta get back to it. I’ll post soon with the harvest report.
