      The Good the Bad and the Ugly - all on one plant. My 2 big colas had a shortening when more bud rot occurred. This was my fault when a couple branches grew into the colas and caused the rot.

      The other 2 will be harvested this weekend.

      And we have a new roof - insurance deductible plus a few extra pieces of plywood - cost me $850.00 for the roof.

        With all the moisture this year, I am afraid we will be dealing with bud rot here also. I have seen it in the wild wood weed in years before.
        Nice grow!

        Roof blew off in storm? Lots of that happened this winter in our area also. House looks great and your plants are beautiful. Such stout colas.....just as healthy looking from here. I had some rot last season on a double cola, looked really cool but it had rot areas cut it like you did. Just great looking plants.

        Thanks - but a tree blew on us. Have pics if you scroll back in this thread to just before xmas.

      Here it is Saturday again, its raining, raining and raining! It has not done this kind of rain since the '70's, Peps have forgotten the low areas flood,,, my garden near the hill top is to wet, the HBDB that was eaten by a grasshopper died from root rot, I'll start a Headbanger to replace it (shorter grow cycle). IF these rains keep up my outdoor plants will all drown or wash away!
      I am also going to take a pair of clones from the BB3, and I may use one of those in the garden instead of the Headbanger,,, and keep the other blooming.
      I think I'll get pics of the GFs grow for this week, her Headbanger has outgrown the one I did greatly! I am getting the soil dialed in!

              nice job , I had to scroll up and down a few times to see what they needed again prolly should of looked to the right lol

            Day 68 Sour 60 and day 25 Northern Light. I've only manifolded once before and didn't do a great job, hoping to do a better job on these N.L. this time around. The Sour 60's are looking like they're going to be be Sour 90's maybe a little sooner.

              Thanks Canuck, I forgot to mention above, the bigger sour 60 is 28" normal I would say, the smaller one is only 12.5" tall but I think it will yield about 1.5 oz dry. Kinda strange their so different??

            Spidermite So, y’all might not know but him and I have our own personal competition going on. He starter his glue and grapefruit a month before me. He’s doing indoor and topped. Mine are going outside next week. Gonna see which of us gets the most...lol.
            Sorry about the picture quality. Don’t know why some look blue. Before anyone says anything, I’m getting ready to water and prune. I just wanted to take the pictures first. They’re also going to get some sprayed fish emulsion today.

              you changed they way you load your pics. I can scroll though them normally I have to click on one then exit and click on a different one well done lol. I like the blue they look way cooler than blurple .

            heres a question we know that training will increase yields , I am curious about manifolding and fluxing ,both of witch the goal is to make 8 kolas ,now I'm wondering if the yield is bigger with just 8 kolas or with all the side branches growing buds instead of clipping them , I mistakenly left all the side shoots on and tied them down then let the side shoots on the side shoots go from their right now they are about 6 inches high , not sure if they will keep growing up or do they reach a certain height and thats it . I guess we will see but if anyone has done both ways what was the bigger yield

              Best wishes today oldjarhead hope all is well with your Dad. Your greenhouse is looking lush and healthy at least you have walking space between rows. I'm using a bucket and small wide mouth bottle to water mine for now and give nutes.

              I find that total yields are increased by leaving the side shoots as long as you can get them light. Give the plants enough light and air and the side shoots will reach the top of the canopy.

            ... and Happy Sunday to all...


            haven't been posting much, life has been busy (been working late, for the last 3 weeks)

            Mrs Lurking decided I wasn't growing fast enough, and strongly questioned (suggested) if I was going to grow outside. So - I looked through the seed vault, and selected all my Auto seeds (7)

            2 x Royal Gorilla Automatic (feminized)
            2 x Diesel Automatic (feminized)

            I know - doesn't look like much.
            It is an Eagle nest on top of the power lines - so the Power Company put up a taller pole, with a flat top (hoping the eagles would shift)

              Yes, further north and east (New Brunswick, Canada)
              We had a good weekend, so trees are starting to leaf out (even had to break out the lawn mower)

            Thanks OJ nothing is better for us than leaving phones,work and world news behind. My autos will go outside when we return from camping/unplugging. I have watered and fed them gave them a blessing. Temps may reach 80 in tent I left windows open there screened so i'm not concerned yet about humidity. They'd die in July in there. If we lived closer to Colorado we would take you up on the camping trip.

                Anyone here grow auto duck? I think mine looks a little small. This one is right at 40 days since germinating. Considering the size should I even bother with trimming anything underneath? Removed a handful of leaves blocking light from getting thru.

                How many buds should I pollinate to get 5 to 10 seeds?

Also germinating 2 Blue Mystic from Nirvana, soaked for 36 hrs. "until they cracked" put in moist paper towel inside a zip lock baggie, tomorrow will plant in solo cups and into the veg, room.
