I am happy I have plenty of notice to figure it all out. Either give away or sold some how. I will get them out. As Pennywise suggested I might piggyback along with someone else.

While a lot of it will be hybrids of his making. Even more are just copied strains. Not many people copy strains like he does. He usually starts 2 seed packs for a total of around 20 plants. Then bunches all the males together and pollinates all the females with them. This seals in all the genetics. So in ways it is not even a F-2 hybrid.

The biggest thing to me. I know his seeds are better than a lot of people have access too no matter how they are made. How ever I get rid of them I plan to be upfront about it all. Hell that is half the appeal of them. Here is what a outlaw grower was impressed with LOL.

I also know that anyone who follows this thread will have access to his seeds. I know he gets a kick out of finding out how far and wide his seeds have traveled. I am sure he will laugh his ass off if I can send them even farther.

While I will have the building blocks to make more seeds of some of his strains. I don't think I plan on doing it. His strains are his and I would love to keep it that way. Not all strains last forever anyway. Better to get those same building blocks to other people so their hybrids can keep my mentors strains alive.

Already there are people doing it here. I know a couple people have made Trailer Trash Betty hybrids with success. Maybe that will be his claim to fame. I might even bring out his real name. Hell they can't arrest a corpse LOL.

I got a check from the insurance company for hail damage to my truck. It is paid off and dents don't stop it from working just fine. I plan to keep it till it is wore out so might as well use the money for other things.

Thinking of getting a quality LED light to replace my 1000 watt HPS in my 60 x 60 x 80 tent. Hard to spend the money when I have 3 HPS ballast's. Still someday I am going to probably need to change. At one time I knew the name brand I was looking for. Of course by now I have forgotten it.

Any help? Looking for a known light that can replace 1000 watts. I expect the price to be in the $1500 range. Price is not the issue. The right light is.

I run 2 TimberGrowLights 1cob and 1qb love both and my CLW SS440 with uvb, but the old man just made the led plunge and picked up a NextLightMega. That light is a straight fucking beast and at $1600 you really can’t beat it.

Thanks guys. I will look into them. Not the same name brand I was looking at before. (It was a suggestion from the Canadian crowd and may not be available in the USA.) I am sure now days there are a few good options out. I was kind of hoping for someone that has made the switch with success and has never went back LOL.

In lots of crops I have run more light than I really needed. Overkill was never a problem for me as long as I can keep temps right. So I probably don't need a exact replacement for the HPS. I also see the HPS as the best light for marijuana. That may not be true before long. Mostly I want lower electric bills.

Changing comes easy when you have back up lights that you know work LMAO.

I actually did go from a 1k hps to qb's. Only because I have 6' ceilings in my basement at my new house, moved here last fall. I still have the hps and would love to use it again. I'm not sure about the comparison of the two but I do love my qb's. I went from a open bedroom to the little tent. I'm still growing enough for my personal use. So I'm happy. I do miss growing trees tho

When I upgraded lights from florescent/blurple to QBs, it was a game changer. I went from 55w/sq ft to 24w/sq ft; increased my yield, decreased my bill, and eliminated most of my heat problems.

I then decided I could afford to run more lights so I started building them. Bought 10 COBs. I have 2 fixtures of those completely built and running. For heat sinks I used 12" sections of aluminum threshold, for drivers I tore apart an old mars300 from 2015 and cannibalized the drivers, fan, and wire connectors.

Now I have a total investment of about $350 (plus a few hours of build time) in lights over the past year. Electric bill is about $75 per month steady with 4 people in the house plus 2 reasonably sized grow areas. Cost me about a dollar a watt...

Sorry for the ramble, I am just a big supporter of modern grow lighting be it DIY or high end pre-fab. Lol.

Unless I can have someone come to build lights for me I guess I am going to be a buyer. Wiring is something I have done but not with confidence. My hair is curly enough as is LMAO.

Took a trip to my brook trout paradise for a day. The winter was really hard on this lake. It had a pretty severe winter kill. With that said it is still one of my favorite lakes. Still lots of big fish. Only caught one fish this time. Length was 15.5" girth was 11" when you do the math it makes it a 2.3 lbs. How the hell can you bitch about a fish like that LOL. I took a second to snap a picture with a water bottle as reference for size.

Having a few second thoughts about a company name to release my mentors genetics under. While I have liked the Outlaw Genetics name for a while. Another thought has come to mind. Lets have some input.

To start is the art work I had done a while back. This one is the dark background one


Everything is still going to need to be altered before the final decision is made. Recently I have been playing with the idea of Trailer Trash Genetics. I don't have art work for it. I do have Trailer Trash Betty art work though. I was thinking it could be altered to work with the new name.

The whole Trailer Trash thing was kind of a big deal to the breeder. Snobby medical growers were the cause LOL. Because of this I thought it might be a appropriate name.

Any input?

That's a nice fish Jack! We had walleye for dinner few days ago. I love fish. As far as the names Outlaw genetics has a nice simple and catchy badass vibe. Trailer trash also has a certain coolness to it too. It's surly going to make people remember it due to it's uniqueness. I really like the artwork for TTB

If you wouldn't mind a suggestion Ganjagrower. The Da Purps and the Purple Betty are going to be real similar in smell and taste. Purps is Purps and it comes out in both hybrids. The P.B. should be stronger but that is the only major difference.

We just had a discussion about the Double Sour Purple Kush a week ago. I think from all of those it has the largest up side. I would go with it instead of the P.B. Here is the basics on it.

My mentor got them from the same place he got his Sin City Kush. Bred by a couple of brothers in Nevada. He talked with them a lot before purchasing anything. He ended up with the Double Sour, Sin City Kush and Snowdawg. Sounds like Alphakronik to me. They told him it is a extra sour pheno of their Purple Kush.

I think the Kush high would be different enough to give you some difference in your weed. That would give you Querckle and P.B. to run together. They would go well together. While Purple Erkle is just another Purps pheno. Space Queen takes in another direction.

Thanks Dankman. I have to agree. They both have promise. Someday I really need to get real artwork done. I got all the stuff I had from a kid here on 420. I traded him some seeds for the time he spent on them. I really like some of them. Mostly they are starting points. I had lots made up for strains that were only in the planning stage. Lots has changed since then. Some will be never made now.

To tell the truth I really wanted crossed Winchesters for the Outlaw Genetics logo. Pretty sure it was all done with clip art and all he could find was Colt pistols. The kid is gone now. I never heard how he did with the seeds or had him work on any more art. Some of what he came up with was incredible. I will post my favorite one.

My Blue Dream is great the way it is. Plenty strong and fun to smoke. There is one strong Blueberry smelling Pheno with pretty high THC levels. I really want to bring more Blueberry flavor and body high to it. The plan is to breed it with a Blueberry male. Here is the art work for that yet unmade strain. Like I said the kid impressed me with it.

I really like the artwork for the dark dream. I'm also a big fan of space queen crosses. I've ran a few with good results. Like most of the crosses with SQ you want to do a decent pheno hunt for the hidden gems. Querkle is one I have not grown but I've smoked it. It used to be really popular around these parts. I've grown Urkle couple years ago. It was really slow in veg, but worth it. Good quality and decent yeild. What's the next fishing trip Jack? I'm gonna try and get out next weekend on my kayaks. Maybe some bass fishing

Kayak fishing is one thing I missed out on. Now they are making such cool boats for it I can't do the work to enjoy it.

Probably going back to Bull lake next. It is time to start running huge stuff for big fish. At Bull I can fish for big fish early and still find a fish or 2 later to pick on or eat if need be. I still need to get back to the mountain lake I fished with the family. Need to go by myself so I can run the huge stuff. That lake has some fat lake trout since they stalked Kokanee in the lake 3 years ago.

I can't show you haw huge this stuff is or even a picture of it LOL. The guy that makes them doesn't want the world to play along LMAO. It works and if he wants it to stay quiet about it fine with me. It is one of the most consistent big fish catchers in the summer months. I catch most of my big fish in the winter and spring. This helps me catch them in summer. I prefer to troll and not jig in the summer. This gives me a way to do that.

I found a 450 upgrade to my trolling motor that will give me spot lock. I will be getting it next year so more jigging may be in my future. Till then I will troll. My first goal is to get a 20+ lbs laker in my boat in in the summer time. My friend already has 30 lber with this same stuff this year. This stuff does work. This year I run mostly it. If I need to jig to meat my goals next year I will.

Lakers are great eaters! I've heard few say they are too greasy, but I love them. Especially when smoked. I'm a fish eater tho. One of my favorite things to do panfish in winter. Last winter I never made it out. This year will be better I hope. Seems the most meat is firmer thru the ice than in summer
