    Use of Forbid on mothers

    I finally have to do it. I have to do an Avid / Forbid rotation for moms. The mites are winning. I contacted Bayer customer support with the following question: I have recently begun using Forbid 4F to control two spotted spider mites. I know that this is not supposed to be used on...

    Grandma's story

    I have a neighbor, and old lady. She lives about a block away. G'ma is 97 years old. She is a little over five feet tall, and maybe weighs a hundred lbs. She is in remarkably good shape for an old broad (her words). When she was young, her and her hubby owned a large dairy in...

    Light and temp during flower

    The last few cycles I have been doing something a little more different than I usually do. I am running 3600 wt over three 4x8 tables. The big AC is set at 74F. Lights on 12/12. CO2 enhanced to 1500 ppm. This is the way I have been growing for decades. Really. The last couple of...

    Care of Clones

    Well, clone "season" is over in N. California. Just in time too. It is HARD WORK to be a clone farmer, and I get tired cracking the whip to keep wifey working as hard as she should. This season, for some reason, I seemed to have a lot of newbie growers (nothing wrong with that, we are all...

    Most interesting day in a long time!

    So. I like to play poker. I'm not particularly good at it - I've won some, and lost some heart-breaker hands ...but I enjoy the struggle. I was fortunate enough to win a medium sized tourney ... took home a couple of thousand $, AND got a comped entry to a larger ($1500) entry to another...

    Another medicinal use for MJ

    So, I really like to play poker. No Limit Holdem, tourney play is my favorite game. Went to Reno with wifey to play in a tourney that I was invited to at The Peppermill. It was an invitation only, $1000 buy in that was comped by the casino. They also comped my room for the weekend. Who...

    Clone medium

    I have been using ProMix as a medium for my clones started in Oasis plugs. I am thinking of making a change. I suspect that they changed their mix as my babies are not reacting the way I want them to. They droop and look sickly for about two weeks, almost like the Ph is off and they're...

    What you been doing?

    Well, now that clone season is over, I decided to get back to my roots (pun intended) and actually grow. I used to love to do SCROG grows back when it was really new and revolutionary. (I actually had someone tell me once that it wouldn't work). I constructed three frames of PVC and 2 x 4...

    Fun With Officer Dick

    In California the police are allowed to set up road blocks and question citizens for no reason. It is being done under the guise of stopping drunk or impaired drivers. About two months ago, I had an interesting police encounter. I post it here for the reader's amusement and if you wish...

    welcome back to ME

    Well, folks, I'm back. Kinda. As some may remember, I am a clone farmer in N. Cali. It is right in the middle of clone season and I am busy as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. Yea. That busy. My back hurts, and my moms are crying from being hard used ... I am looking...

    LED vs MH electrical usage

    I am real tired of paying $800 electricity bills. As in, real tired. When I set up my room LED was just not doing the job, and very expensive. So, it was an easy choice for me to go MH. I have three 4 x 8 tables with two 600wt MH's over each one. I am thinking about getting caught up to...

    Cloning cubes

    For the last thousand years or so I have been using Rock Wool cubes for cloning. I figured out how to get and keep the moisture just right for maximum root sprouting. I would let them get almost, as in almost dry before briefly dunking them and kinda wetting the bottom half of the cube. This...

    Harlequin

    I am going to SCROG three 4 x 8 tables of Harequin as soon as the cloning season is over. I haven't done a full grow in a long time, and it is my New Years resolution to do a crop - and I wanna do a high CBD, and I have a couple of very nice looking mothers who pretest at a 2.5 to 1 ratio...

    My random test experience

    I am a regular eater of MMJ, ever since my injury and surgery about ten years ago. MMJ saved my life; saved me from a life of addiction to narcotics. I have been working for a large new car dealership in Northern California for years. My job requires me to move cars a lot. From here to...

    N. Cali Harvest 2014

    . Harvest season is over in Northern California - - for me at least. This is just part (the last part finished yesterday afternoon) of a large grow. All the trimmers who worked on this project get to guess the weight. The closest without going over wins a pound of Blue Dream grade AA bud...

    MH for flower lights?

    . I was watching "Pot Barons" on TV last nite. (Ever watch that show? It is almost as good as 'Moonshiners'.) There was an owner being interviewed. He owned and operated a HUGE legal indoor grow in a warehouse. As you can imagine, it was a wondrous place. Any way, I'm sitting there...

    Has anybody had any experience

    . ... growing Harlequin? I have three fat Harley moms that I'm taking cuttings off of right now. I'm going to flood Northern California with this strain - it truly IS medicine and there are people out there that need it. When clone season is over, I am planning on doing a SCROG grow under...

    Jury Nullification

    About ten years ago (I was fifty) I hurt myself pretty bad. I had to wait five or six months for a surgery that would allow me be somewhat normal. It was six months of pure hell. I was in pain all the time. I ate narcotics like they were Chiclets. The surgery was successful. I felt better...

    No more pucks

    . I hate pucks. You know, the round thingies that go in a bubble cloner. I h8t them. Cleaning them is time consuming, and if you don't clean EVERY ONE of them perfectly - you can contaminate your res with all kinds of weird bugs and bacteria and end up with a ruined batch. It is actually...

    new one for me

    but, I know that there is nothing new under the sun, so I'm sure someone has knowledge on this subject. The subject is .. bugs. And the specific bug is ... ants. I have never had ants in my indoor garden before. It doesn't look like they are doing any damage. Doesn't appear that they are...
