  • The Ganja Ged Thread

    Hello all!

    My first original post here on GWE and I hope for a long stay.

    I've done a few small grows over the years but nothing really "serious" so I suppose I'm at "well researched noobie" level, lol.

    I'm a 52 yr old widower. My wife passed away last year with Uterine Cancer that metastasized to her lungs and brain, she was only 48. We had been dealing with some issues that had been cropping up with me, memory, attention, balance, walking etc. and a couple of months after her passing I was diagnosed with a Parkinson's Spectrum condition, probable Lewy Bodies Disease, basically a combination of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. I apologize now for any "wandering off" or nonsensical posts that may happen.

    Thanks to smoking I have pretty much eliminated all pain killers, occasionally I'll have intense flair ups that require me to use them but nothing like the 5 different ones they had me on. It has also helped with my tremors and have allowed me to stay on lower levels of Dopamine for a longer period of time. Not to mention insomnia and depression.

    What has been an even greater benefit has been getting into growing as a hobby. It's been great, it gets me moving and thinking, sitting with my plants calms me and relieves stress and anxiety which has been pretty high over the last year.

    I ran across GWE a while back while thinking about setting up a grow and I've been reading here ever since. What a great site and these seem one of the most friendly forums around, gratz to all of you and of course thanks to Nebula and Sirius for all of their work.

    I went and got all my "upgrades", read that as anything other than the 2 Sterlite Tubs stacked on each other with a couple of small pots and a couple little CFL's , and after setting it all up in my room, I've decided to move the setup down to the basement some time soon, lol. I need a bit more room to move around in.

    Anyways my current set-up is:

    Closet for Veg/Mothers (CFL's until upgrade)
    3x3x6 Tent
    600w GalaxyHydro LED (~250 draw)
    4" Exhaust and carbon filter (coming this week)
    DIY DWC and Soil


    Anyways I'm gonna go see about uploading pics and get this first Journal started.

    I'm happy to be here and look forward to interacting with everyone!

          Lighting - GalaxyHydro 600w LED ~250 Draw

          Filter - 4" Carbon

          Fans - 4" Exhaust + small air movement fans, passive intake


          Medium - Hydro-DWC, Expanded Clay and Soil


          Base Nutes - GH Flora Trio (Hydro) - Dyna-Gro (soil)

          The Death Star are very old seeds, like 10 years plus, it's possible they are mislabeled after all this time and a couple of moves, lol. The Blue Dream is a bag seed.

            Oh just to explain whats what in this pic

            Everything in the DWC is a clone of the Death Star Mom. The larger one on the right is the last of my "test" clones that I used to check the sex and run through the system to tune it a bit.

            The big pot is the Blue Dream that will be a Mother.

            Behind the big pot are a Blue Dream clone to test sex and a Death Star clone for a soil grow

            On the milk crate to the left is another Death Star clone in soil, and the White Widow and Northern Lights which will be Mothers.

              In honor of being here and this grow

              Morning comes, she follows the path to the river shore
              Lightly sung, her song is the latch on the morning's door
              See the sun sparkle in the reeds; silver beads pass into the sea

              She comes from a town where they call her the woodcutter's daughter
              She's brown as the bank where she kneels down to gather her water
              And she bears it away with a love that the river has taught her
              Let it flow, greatly flow, wide and clear

              Round and round, the cut of the plow in the furrowed field
              Seasons round, the bushels of corn and the barley meal
              Broken ground, open and beckoning to the spring; black dirt live again

              The plowman is broad as the back of the land he is sowing
              As he dances the circular track of the plow ever knowing
              That the work of his day measures more than the planting and growing
              Let it grow, let it grow, greatly yield

              Chorus
              What shall we say, shall we call it by a name
              As well to count the angels dancing on a pin
              Water bright as the sky from which it came
              And the name is on the earth that takes it in
              We will not speak but stand inside the rain
              And listen to the thunder shout
              I am, I am, I am, I am

              So it goes, we make what we made since the world began
              Nothing more, the love of the women, work of men
              Seasons round, creatures great and small, up and down, as we rise and fall

              [chorus]

              Grateful Dead ~ Let It Grow

                  Thanks DAAS. You have much more confidence in me that I do at the moment!

                  I would say I'm pretty well researched but that's only half of it, getting the experience, and feel for my strains, dealing with stuff that pops up, I'm gonna need help, lol.

                  But we're gonna give it a hell of a try, and success or fail, it'll be good for me and something to build off of from there.

                  Slow but good day!

                  I had an order goof up through Seedsman and they got everything fixed hooked me up a little for the trouble, today. YAY Seedsman! Great bank and great people, Ruth is the Woman, lol. Also my fan and filter showed up today, so that's awesome.

                  Gave the kids a drink, and gave one a quick trim.

                  Also today got my TDS meter, which brings up a question. Say the nute mfg. says you should be at 800ppm. Is that including or in addition to your fresh water ppm? I don't recall ever seeing a clear answer to that anywhere.

                  Pics are a Sunday thing unless I need a diagnosis quick

                  And I'll leave us tonight with this:
