  • How do I balance my scientific beliefs without contradicting some our sponsors? Some of the stuff is snake oil. I don’t mind that they sell stuff that isn’t required since there are willing buyers out there. But when they start to believe their own propaganda and argue with science I start to vibrate

    a;so your from alberta.. we dont need none of dat science stuff round here
    Things you did in your youth that might kill you now. When oil first came out in the 70’s we for some reason used two hot knives to vaporize the oil that had been spread on tin foil and folded over. I quit doing that when I noticed the tin foil getting smaller after every use. You would also think we would dedicate two knives out of the kitchen but oh no every one ended up blue
    My house is starting to stink and I have 5-6 weeks to go. I was hoping these wouldn’t be as bad as the Blue Cheese but oh well. I wonder how bad the Super Skunk will be when I get to those seeds?

    Fwiw. You may enjoy smelling like a dispensary but it's also likely to draw attention to your place. If your rural enough obviously it doesn't matter. But in town that would make me nervous

    Yea I've noticed that when my lights kick off ( flowering plants only ) that within 5 minutes of lights off I get a very strong odor from them. It's not the bud smell either.

    Have you been to a playground recently? They have made them childproof. How can you have fun with no risk? OK so we can’t allow unfettered Darwinism, but how long before it weakens the species.

    SHIT now that sounds like eugenics. Sorry that is not my point. Polarization of opinion without common ground will destroy our democracy. But screaming louder doesn’t make you the winner
    My faith in modern society has been confirmed. I was told today by General Hydroponics that my garden was unique. No other growers have my situation including the responder to my inquiry (employee). Wow I am a special snowflake!

    PH drop from 6.2 to 4.5 over four days using their Bloom N source. Never happened to me in 30 years of making my own N source out of Calcium Nitrate.

    I spent 20 minutes composing an appropriate response to their canned bacterial contamination blurb. Hit send. Blocked. They project an interest in your feedback but don’t really want to hear it.

    Either marketing is censoring the scientists or they are just not aware of the real world. A lot of book smart people are pretty stupid. I mentored several Ph.D.’s out of academia into commercial laboratory settings and it’s painful how ignorant they are about anything outside of their specialty. But the marketing people quote them as Gods.

    AAAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGG
    Dilemma. I want two grow rooms. One is just not enough. The trouble is, it is illegal to have more than four plants here. I have grown illegally since the early 80’s and never been caught. My grows are for personal consumption and there has never been a reason for the authorities to look at me. I did freak out the first time I had to pay my utility bill at the bank after first turning on an old mercury vapour street light I had put in my grow room. They showed graphs of usage!!

    Cons: Lose my house, go to jail, die on the street on release

    Pros: endless daily entertainment, prevention of SADS through high intensity light therapy, humidification of the extremely dry winter air in my house. Maybe cloning. Maybe breeding (not me).

    Now that I am flowering I can only look for 12 hrs a day at emerald green. If I had two rooms life would be much greener
    Geese I hate having to deal with stupid non-metric measures. General Hydroponics, an American company, lists their nutrient feed rates in mL per USG. Pick a system for goodness sake, and be consistent. I’m sure their scientists gave the info in mL/L to marketing and then they went and changed it. Science is done in the metric system!

    I hear ya, had the calculator out last night to mix my dwc res, converting gallons to litres, trying to figure out a half strength nutrients mix and a quarter strength pk mix for my coco grow.

    It’s all mixed up.... my sailboat has an old Cummins diesel. In an entire frayed manual full of Imperial, it suddenly lists a 13 mm wrench for the bolts on the heat exchanger. wtf....

    good to see a fello albertan im on the border peace
    It’s snowing. Thankfully I put my summer car to bed for the winter just yesterday. I only drove it twice this summer which is a shame. It’s a 94 Mazda RX7 which I have upgraded over the years. I’m not used to driving it anymore and it can be scary doing a wide open throttle run with almost double the factory horsepower on an already fast car. At least the suspension, brakes, wheels, steering and tires have been upgraded as well. I really should take it to the race track which is nearby.

    I also just put my roses to bed for the winter. Hybrid tea roses aren’t supposed to grow here. I ended up chatting with the owner of the nursery I buy my roses from last year. She says I have been preparing them for winter wrong all my life. It’s what my mother did. I have been chopping them a few inches above the ground, then covering with buckets and a tarp. They survive but only just. This year I stopped doing any trimming after the first few weeks in Sept. I now have just mounded soil up around the base of the plants and will allow them to freeze from the top down. We shall see if we should trust Science or Mother. I’m guessing science will win.

    Are you in southern Alberta? You don’t have to answer if you don’t want to.
    Seems like most of the Albertans on this site are more southern.

    I’m in Edmonton! Or just outside of the city I guess. I drive to the city everyday for work.

    One of my best friends from high school, imports cars over seas, picks them up in Vancouver drives them to Alberta and sells them here. Pretty good gig if you ask me!

    Your car sounds sexy! I’d like to see some pictures if your not shy of posting them.

    I will have to search your name later and find your journal.

    So,, I listen to a lot of music on a nice sounding system. I also subscribe to a streaming service that provides cd quality music. I can’t stand listening to remastered albums. I just heard a new Abby Road remastered song and sure enough the bass is boosted way too much. When I download music I will always choose the original over remastered. Maybe it sounds better on a shit system but the massive bass boost on my system is overpowering. Sorry just an old man whining
    Anticipation can be more enjoyable than immediate gratification if you have masochistic tendencies.
    Having too much, and not using it, is better than too little, and wanting more
    I’m thinking that a Sous Vide immersion heater shouldn’t sound like a mini-jackhammer. Yes I did all the troubleshooting their website suggested. It looks like a misaligned motor and shaft. Let’s see what the manufacturer says.
