    Cannabis Powder

    I found that frying maltodextrin is akin to cooking with sugar. Although maltodextrin is shown as a carbohydrate on packaging, it really is sugar and should be used in recipes with that thought in mind. In my case, I sprinkled it on prior to frying and it carmelized on me. Next time I will...

    Cannabis Powder

    I just made my first batch of cannabis powder. I'm going to try it on scallops tonight. My brother told me about it a couple of weeks ago, so I read up on it, ordered Maltodextrin and made a batch of canna oil using olive oil (3 cups), vegetable lecithin (1 tbsp/cup of oil) and 3oz. of cannabis...

    Spider Mite Control: The Mighty Persimilis

    I'm surprised I left this post until #4. Spider mites have been the bane of my existence for years. I used to control the buggers with Aza Max until it became illegal to sell it in Canada. It worked for about a month before I had to reapply. I wouldn't use it in flower as I had no interest in...

    That will be a project for early June on my return from Europe. My grow tent will be empty at that time. Thanks for the info, Celt.

    Nice. I assume you're using 1000 watt? Any idea how long the bulb lasts? Looking to replace my clunky HPS lighting. I was considering going with 2x 1000 watt LED in my 2x4x4 tent. My brother uses just one 1000 watt LED and has been getting excellent results.

    Thanks so much, Celt. I have some studying to do.

    The soil I use for outdoor growing is the same as indoor growing, although my Dream doesn't like heavy neuts. According to the seed company, it likes basic soil with no additives. I do use Big Up powder with a couple of weeks to go, but otherwise nothing. I have built soils in the past and still...

    LOL. To quote Jurassic Park, "Life finds a way".

    Bees are our great pollinators and they can travel some distance from their hive, I imagine.

    I often do 'quantities' of grinding at a sitting, then carefully go through it to extract the seeds prior to putting in a container. I'm currently running 3 main strains: Moonshine's Ghost Train Haze for daytime smoking, Blackberry Dream for night smoking and Critical Widow for edibles. I will...

    From what little I've read, the quality of the cannabis is compromised by having seeds. Having said that, the quality of the outdoor plants still far exceeds anyhting I've been able to produce indoors.

    I definitely have to propagate a few now. My interest is piqued.

    You must be right that there had to be a male somewhere in the neighborhood. My plants showed no signs of being hermaphroditic.

    The seeds are very real and there were definitely no males around. I'm going to have to propagate a few and see what I get. All the plants I've ever grown were started from female seeds and cloned. I know what you're referring to with empty pods. I get that with indoor plants, but the outdoor...

    Even with my shorter plants, I haven't even smoked half of what I grew outside. I grow indoors as well, so I use all of that for edibles and tincture. I noticed something from my outdoor growing that hasn't occurred indoors; that is, I have been getting a fair amount of seeds per plant. When I...

    Thanks so much for that information, Celt. You are quite right about the removal of the height restriction. Thankfully, I've already created a secret garden so I can get away with 10' tall plants. It's going to be an even better year!

    I also gave a clay base. Over the years I had soil delivered as well as buying 100's of bags every year. This year, I bought 5 gallon fabric bags that I'm going to run a chain through all of them and padlock them all together. If someone is going to steal them, there isn't much you can do. Since...

    In Canada, the outdoor height restriction is 1 metre, which is quite short. I didn't believe it was possible, but with trimming (until the first week of August when the the plants begin to flower) and tying the plant back or scrogging, you can keep it legal. A friend whom I donate plants to...
