Twisted Hippie's Official Medical Grow Operation, Recast!

Yes indeed, recast in just about every possible way. So much so, it's probably going to take some time to unpack it all. Some things however will always stay the same.
Same drive. Same passion. Same simple Oklahoma country boy survivor ingenuity. Same roll of bailing wire to patch up whatever. And the very same goal of carving out a local long lasting niche.
And the number one primary directive to this thread? Simply telling it like it is.
The good.
The bad.
The ugly.
That song will always remain the same.
Think of this thread as "Chapter ll Over". I kinda like the ring of that!:ganjamon:
It's my sincere wish to make this thread as fun as the last was, and folks, for me it was a HOOT! I've truly missed you guys. Stay tuned and
enjoy the ride!

Hello @The Twisted One welcome to 420magazine my friend. :welcome:
I think I'd get contact lenses if I were you.:laugh::19::Namaste:

I guess it's about high time to fire this thread up, so let's do this!
First off, a great many changes have taken place and many lessons have been learned over the last three years. Probably the greatest lesson learned is to never sell oneself short, and if it ain't working stop doing it that way and do something different. Well, folks, we are doing things...VERY different and surrounding ourselves with proven winners with the very same goals, and that's to put out the very best genetics available in Oklahoma, and boy do we have a lineup in store! :48:

But wait. It's gets even better, but I really don't want to let the cat out of the bag quite yet, so let me just say you folks are gonna get an inside view into the commercial cannabis industry very few have ever the opportunity to witness, me included. So expect a few tours outside our own facility for some really, and I mean really cool insiders look into the science behind this plant that has captivated humans for thousands of years.
We are also going to get a view and participate into what is required to create those genetics that stand out from the rest of the pack, and see what goes into creating those "winners" everyone is drooling to get their hands on. It's a lot more work than most folks might imagine. Stay tuned on that one.
Oklahoma really has some unprecedented opportunities when it comes to the cannabis arena, and once you see what's in store, if you don't live here you'll probably want to schedule a weekend trip. It will be THAT cool. Think "tourist attraction" :ganjamon:

Anyway, since we have to start somewhere, we might as well start in the mother room with clones. Clean clones. Let me repeat that. CLEAN CLONES! Yes friends, if you were wearing my pants, you'd annunciate that too, but that another another story. Heck. It's another thread, but we are moving forward and not backwards. How to get clean clones? Create them in-house and when new genetics are introduced from outside our bubble, well, let's just say they are taken into a quarantine room located away from the primary facility. Here, any genetics outside a seed goes through a specific quarantine regime before being allowed to enter the primary facility. This process takes around 10 days. During this period the new plants or clones are treated AS IF they are disease carriers, and treated and monitored during this period. May sound a little severe, but trust me, it's a required protocol for us from here on out.

Here's our first contender. This is Divinity 33. She is an Indica dominant strain bred by crossing Gelato #3 with the hefty OGKB V2.1. An impressive 34% of THC levels provide very gassy effects and high galeo funk. A long-lasting medicine and stays on the tongue straight after the exhale. It is also known as a powerful relief for those who suffer from any type of pain. Definitely not recommended for a daytime smoke! Hat's off to InhouseGenetics for this strain!

Here's a tray of our Divinity 35. (Yes, that's some major "wood"!)

Even though the industry demands clones in Grodan blocks, my all time favorite way to create a clone is aeroponically. Just something about white roots!

Even though we grow grow using expanded clay, it isn't the only way to grow. Most other prefer a more conventional media.

We use 5 gallon buckets with baskets designed for the buckets. Clean, simple, reliable.

Prepping the flower room, final clean then a Sulphur burn and bring the room temps up to 120 deg or so for 4 hrs and BOOM! Clean slate ready for some real action!

Here's a view of the feed distribution lines in the flower room. One of the issues we had from past experiences was a line inadvertently popping out of the bucket and begin dispensing around 60 gallons of nutrient solution all over the floor, Not a fun event, and it's happened more times than I can count on my fingers, so....being the handy guy I am, I did what any dad with a near genius son would do....create a fix!

Usher in some high tech solutions in the form of "if you don't have it, can't buy it because nobody makes one, print one!"

Here's our first "test batch". After some fine tuning we ended up with a product that's just as good if not better than a store bought one....provided there was such a thing....and there isn't, until now.:slide:

Yes indeed. It not only looks cool, it works flawlessly as well!

Note how it clamps to the basket. It literally "snaps" into place and allows perfect positioning of the feed lines. Most important of all? No more dropped feed lines! Now I just need a few hundred of them printed...

From clever minds come clever solutions! Hat's off to you son!
