    Trimming Branches In Flower

    Excellent posts guys. For some reason I didn't get an email notification until this last post :-/. NorCalHal, since my post this is about the method I have taken. I gradually took more and more. But starting early on in veg I take off any lower branches that are growing practically horizontal...

    Choosing Mothers

    Hi everyone. I read a thread "Choosing a Mother" posted by oldmac but the thread was dated almost 3 years ago, so I figured I would post my questions in a separate thread. About 45 days ago I planted 6 (out of 10) Feminized Liberty Haze seeds from Barney's Coffee Shop. About 2 weeks later I...

    Spider Mite Eradication

    Very interesting. It says to be careful and not spray it directly onto buds, but I am sort of thinking this only applies to more sensitive plants. Have you had any problems with that?

    Spider Mite Eradication

    Hi everyone. I'm looking for tips to get completely rid of spider mites. I've had them pretty consistently the past year and a half of growing, with a couple harvests having almost none (I this this was just a strain specific thing). Currently I'm harvesting and half of my plants have slight...

    Seed Germination - And the Moon?

    As an update, I used the paper towel method after some thinking. First I soaked them for about 4 hours, and then placed them inside paper towels and then inside of a tupperware container. I decided that for my first time I'd stick with what seemed most popular. Just over 24 hours and 5/6 had...

    Seed Germination - And the Moon?

    Re: Seed Germination -- And the Moon? Dangerzone, love the name ;-). Ha. I'm actually growing indoors hydroponically, so the temperature and climate is all maintained by myself. As far as the seed germination goes, very nice. I took it to mean you folded the paper towel over lets say...

    Seed Germination - And the Moon?

    A guy at the local grow store was telling me about it being advantageous to germinate your seeds during the waxing moon (which we happen to be in now). As this is going to be my first time starting from seeds I'm looking for any and all information. Also, most people say they use paper towels...

    Lemon Skunk and Durban Poison Info - Please

    Re: Lemon Skunk and Durban Poison Info (Please) The one fortunate thing about these clones is they are all single main shoots. Usually I get them and they are pretty much already topped. I usually cut down past the first set of leaf branches, but I've seen a lot of people just topping the very...

    Lemon Skunk and Durban Poison Info - Please

    Re: Lemon Skunk and Durban Poison Info (Please) Thanks guys. I've had quite a bit of experience with topping, but I've never FIM'd. While I know how to do it, another picture/diagram would be great. To answer another posters question, these are plants I got from clones. I live here in...

    Lemon Skunk and Durban Poison Info - Please

    Hi everyone. I'm currently vegging some Lemon Skunk and Durban poison. They are all an average of 10-12 inches tall now. I'm looking for people who have any knowledge/experience with this strain. I'm curious how these react to topping, and if well - when the proper height to do this is. I'm...

    Purple Voodoo

    Hey everyone. I have an opportunity to get this strain, but I'm curious if anyone here as grown it - and/or what it yields? I'm currently getting an average of 4oz/plant or just under. Currently have a batch of Super Skunk in, and am not really wanting to go down too considerably in my yield...

    Trimming Branches In Flower

    Thanks for the replies. The strain itself is not as bushy as a lot of other ones. I have 40 plants under 6 1000w Raptor fixtures in an Ebb and Grow Hydroton setup. I'm also using CO2 at 1500ppm. I am using Advanced Nutrients following 'roughly' the lucas formula with some additions such as...

    Trimming Branches In Flower

    Hi everyone. A few months ago I was reading about pruning off the smaller branches throughout the plant that end up being popcorn buds in order to get better light penetration and more 'energy' going to the bigger buds. The trouble is I'm reading a lot of conflicting things. I'm wondering if...

    Lights weren't on for a few days

    I am hoping this is the right section for this. I have a friend and their lights were off during the light period (timer issue) for 3-4 days. The plants were in their 2nd week of flowering. The question is, how long can they be in a dark period like this without stressing to the point of...

    Co2

    I'm going to add CO2 to my grow room soon. Due to price I'm thinking of just going with a nice regulator that is timed, so I can have it start depositing CO2 30 min. after lights come on, and turning off 30 min. before they turn off. I'm curious if there is a regulator that is better than...
