Hi, y'all, I'm in information-gathering mode. I'm in the Bay Area, home of a LOT of growers, some of you are here and anyone who will allow me to pick your brains is a kind and wonderful person.

I've got a fair amount of info from out of here, already. I've learned about the milk and water method of powdery mold control, soils to use (my sister, the master gardener, might build me some soil), smart pots (definitely a must for me), and how to measure soil and water PH.

I've decided on Ken's GDP clones from Dark Heart Nursery. The clones at the dispensary were allegedly from DHN, but they were ugly, lots of leaf yellowing and leaf droop. Clearly mistreated girls. If they don't have anything better than that when the time comes, I'll get them from Elemental or Harborside. Not taking any chances on girls I have to save from dying.

I'm sure I'll have a million questions (which I know I must not post in this sub-forum) and I hope to interact with folks in my area, because the Bay Area has a different climate than any place in the US. Hope you experienced Bay Area folks (especially if you grow outdoors) are up for another neophyte with a zillion stupid, redundant questions. :sorry:

Feel free to PM me, if you want. It's ok to call me ignorant, too, because I am. But I learn by rolling up my sleeves and doing it, making mistakes and learning from said mistakes. Auto-didactic AND kinesthetic. My poor girls will probably be doomed.
