This Journal will be Featuring 3 strains, Old Island Indica, Sweet Baby Jane, And Platinum Girl Scout Cookie


Old Island Indica - (Vashon Island, WA Exclusive)

may2014microstrains2.jpg


Old Island Indica is as close to the Landrace strain as it can be without flowering in the mountains of Afghanistan where it was home. Brought to the island in the mid 1970s it is one of the longest surviving strains in our Northwest environment. A potent, couchy state is where it takes you, with a great relaxing body effect.

Sweet Baby Jane - (Vashon Island, WA Exclusive)

Sweet baby jane is the baby of Afgooey and Old Island Indica. It boasts a hefty 90-10 indica dominance that is relaxing and soothing. its earthy with a strong citrus smell.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Platinum Girl Scout Cookie - (Oil, Kush, Cookies Cut)

pgsc.jpg


The Mysterious Girl Scout Cookies..;) well i can say i do have a "gsc" and i know 100% its not "gsc" so im well aware of the claims that go along with this. I have seen several real cookie grows in person as well as real sherbert grows. every true gsc i have seen are small yielding plants that tend to stretch more then normal indicas. they are oddly shaped flowers that are covered in resin, usually the fan leaves and stem to the fan leaves as well. they are solid as a rock, at first look they look like the runt of the litter. when you squeeze them you realize the big cola to its side might not be as heavy in weight as the gsc next to it. they have dark green almost a blackish purple color leaf that is just as a signature as the Tahoe og closely bundled fingers on fan leaves that look almost a darkish waxy. the pistils tend to look a bright orange next to the dark green/purple flower. it has easily became one of my favorite strains in my 14 strain garden.

PGSC is also refereed to as Forum Cut Girl Scout Cookies.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My current Garden will be getting changed this next grow. i found out that my current room can carry 4800 watts without having to convert a base board heater into a 220 (may do this down the road) so the tent is coming down. i cant, (wont) try and control the temps of 3000 watts in a 6.5x6.5x6.5 room.

Quick update. under lighting!!

20150225_003921.jpg



Had a good long dab session w a grower friend and he told me to check out some of his grows on a friend of his youtube so I did and seen thousands of watts in under kighting. So I found a good quick video that shows my future plans. Next grow will be more under lighting and no tent just for more room.

Just a quick video checking on the girls humidity. Dehumidifier was off for i don't know how long so I was worried. I like to stay below 37% humidity.

Edit : uploaded video from phone, just looked at it and not sure if quality is that horrible on a pc monitor. I will check when I return back home.

20150211_225437.jpg



i will be repairing a hood that was gifted to me and taking pics for any that may have this issue in the future. the wire was cut and their patch job was to splice the three wires outside the hood and tape it off with some wire nutes. i will cut a foot or so section out of the cord and rewire it to the hood. i may use this in the next flower depends on how it all goes. got a few hoods to play with that have been collecting dust. also have some leds that ive never used so next flower will be fun. dont think ive had a grow yet where i have said "its complete, there is no more changing" always changing something.

to get things started with this update, we have sweet baby jane

shes got the strongest sweetest smell i have ever smelt.

its a berry + tropical that creates a overwhelming mango/blueberry aroma.

a friend of mine grabbed a nug to smell and said "that is the kind of smell that when you smell it, you have to have it"
Flowers are not as dense as the platinum girl scout but one plant has solid rock flowers, this is the one in the picture.

20150308_201552.jpg



Here we have Old island indica, i really wasnt sure about this the first 4 weeks as it was filling out like a indica and didnt have a strong aroma like that of sweet baby jane. however in the 5-6 weeks of this i have a few plants out of 6 that are rock solid colas and has a sharp + dairy smell creating a sweet almost cinnamon cream cheese smell. it has made it a tough choice between this or pgsc as my favorite strain in my arsenal now. Fiances fav and friend is sweet baby jane as of now.

20150308_201800.jpg


Now it may be hard to see, but this paticular pgsc has got so heavy all but 2 branches have fallen over. not sure what im going to do with this as they are laying on the net so i arranged them so they wouldnt be laying on each other, may try and string them up but not tonight.

20150309_233743.jpg



Now im going to just post a random set of platinum girl scout cookies that i took recently. shes became my fav, just wish she yielded like the sweet baby jane and old island indica. it would be jah like.

Hope you enjoyed, i do plan on getting some videos up soon. may wait till my garden is re arranged so i can actually access the plants. right now i can get under them, in two corners, and in one door way. so its a pain to get pictures, and almost impossible to get full shots of the garden or full plant pics.

up next i will be showing results so far of a handful of days of underlighting..

Stay tuned ;)

underlighting update

got a handful of branches that were sagging from to much weight, i even have a fan under that canopy and they arent strong enough, may just need more lighting earlier on in the flower cycle, which i will have next run..
20150309_211743.jpg



right here we have me pointing to a particular flower, now remember this is pgsc.. this flower is not as rock hard as up on top but its a solid flower compared to most indicas.
20150309_234344.jpg
20150309_234504.jpg



now for the un interrupted pic update of underlighting

now ive heard even on 420mag that underlighting isnt just something you can do but actual claims to it not being good for your plant (something about under the leaves dont like light) well i like to do things myself, my dad raised me to learn by making my own mistakes so i decided to go for it. I wont be going back, i need more underlighting!!

I have no room in my tent to move around, every inch is being used. i actually just cut 2 nugs off because they were pressing against the tent and i couldnt pull them in or else it would be pressing against another cola, so i chopped 2 out early. So here is a short video showing my platinum girl scout cookies im able to access this plant, sweet baby jane, and old island indica, and then underneath the canopy.

Pictures of the nugs i cut out in fear of them molding in the next 30 days. they were on the outside of the led side and the suction of the fan caused the tent to be pressing against two of the tops. they are solid dense flowers so my fear was in the next week or two they would mold. tying them down and pulling it into the tent further would be a option but it is packed with no space without causing another mold issue.

20150312_000155.jpg


i expect a half oz from these two tops. the weight will be noted and the rest of old island indica #5 will be harvested in 30 days.

Now the plant that i cant leave alone, every day i have to squeeze a flower just for the smell.
i love pgsc, but really want that sunset sherbert strain!! my source wont release it yet, hopefully this year!

this has beel sitting in storage eeking me off for a good while now. a grower friend of mine started growing for a youtube grower so he got rid of his gear, i bought a good portion of it. one of his hoods had a splice in it so i never used it. he said it worked fine but i will take the 30 min to make it not so hazardous.

(while hood is unplugged)
Here is once the screws are taken out from inside the light fixture
20150207_122836.jpg

Taking wire nuts off both positive and negative as well as unscrewing the ground nut
20150207_122847.jpg

the cut off portion of spliced cord. some tools used
20150207_131744.jpg

Took a break, placed everything inside the hood, now back to work
20150207_131802.jpg

The reason being for the break i took. this little black plug holding the main power cord is a pain to get out, for a good reason.
20150220_1308151.jpg

Everything is back together and the cut off piece of cord, didnt lose much in process, about 10" to a foot
20150220_1319551.jpg


Soon i will have pictures of the work done at my shop as well!
