    This Grow Challenge will provide many objective results including a legit Strain Review from some growers. And we can all follow it. There are some popular strains that we all grow/ have grown so we are trying some promising NEW up-and-comers to test genetics. We talked extensively about bag appeal and longevity of these flavors in our grow rooms. They will hopefully become a staple in my barn.

    The challenge is against yourself, how well can you do with a short veg time and swelling/smelling flowers around the holidays (and family).

    We have banded together to grow some new exciting flavors and some of us would never venture out and order seeds if this motivation wasn't here. There is also a wider window for learning: if my grow ended up subpar to yours, I would still know how you achieved victory and I could be on the fast track to improvement for the next try for myself.

    Its fun, perhaps it will become something, but it is very friendly and informative rather than competitive.

      Thanks for the warm welcome to the experiment.

      I will grow this in my 100 × 100 tent with an 350 actuall watt led light. My thought first with this tent was to grow two plants and really perfect my training techniques but I will make some minor changes so that I can fit 4 plants. Two of each.

      Only problem for me right now is to get the seeds, my local seed bank didnt have the seeds and I HATE the idea of ordering it online.
      I will go to Amsterdam city in the end of July and hope I can find them there.

      What are the thought of training in this experiment ?

      Sounds Good. I Will rethink how I can get the seeds but I have bad experience ordering things from overseas, paying in advance and not receiving products.

      Just checking regarding the training

    the veg rooms are quite now, the plants all moved outside and when I walk by them I can here them say I'm lonely plant something but alas no seeds until Aug. 11th ,then they will get fired up and go into overtime to get the seeds to seedling then plants , You know guys sometimes its hard to come up with enough rambling to keep it current lol

      If you have some lights that arent to cost prohibitive or have it set up on solar, it pays for itself fast, plant some herbs. I know you can put it outside, but nice to have that aroma. Not to mention fresh herbs to make munchies. I always have some in the bottom under the canopy of the taller plants.

            I love the fact that ChemDog started as seeds found in a bag of weed called "the dog." That was in that article somewhere. 32.13% that started as bag seed.

              so I'm watering yesterday after driving back from pittsfield (2 hour drive ) ,And I here like a big bubblier WTF well I looked over and my sisters water hearer is leaking like the faucet was turned on ,with in two minutes I was standing in a half inch of water ,it took that long to move all the shit in the way to reach it to shut it off then I cleared all the stuff in the way and checked it out the leak was coming out of the out flow pipe , so I'm going to remove it and see if all that blew was the pipe . Last time I did a water heater it was under $200 the cheapest one I saw on Lowes website was $350 yikes so I hope it is only the pipe ,Gotta love this hard water town , Actually I did good most people only get 2 to 4 years with there hot water heaters Its been ten years since I put that one in and my water heater is over 20 years so I did good dam I hope I didn't just jinks myself
