    Organic Grow-Barneys Farm; Red Diesel & Peyote Critical Kush

    Afternoon folks
    After a truly cataclysmic, almost biblical battle with spider mites and personal issues piling up that needed addressing I shut down for several months. Now like an early morning raider approaching Lindisfarne, I am back.
    So, stocks are low and I have therefore chosen 2 of my fav`s. Both are very good for my headspace. I don`t recommend this for everyone but I use weed in place of heavy head medications which knock me sideways and these 2 really help keep me level.
    I am also moving away during the flowering stage from HPS` to LED`s and have no experience in handling these so it`s going to be a learning curve for me. Special thanks to Spidermite for some excellent practical advice on how to handle them (Thanks mate-really appreciated). I mainly moved away from HPS` due to heat but running cost savings are also going to be a plus.
    I do not use plain water but either a plain compost tea or a feed compost tea for either veg or flowering.
    Soil-BioBizz + Charge + Volcanic Dust + Perlite
    10l or 20l airpots
    Veg Tent-400 MH air cooled tube and 1 x 5" extractor. Passive input.
    Main Tent- 2 x 1200 Viparspectras, 1 x 6" input, 1 x 6" extractor, 3 oscillating fans + 1 x dehumidifier.
    Training-LST, Manifolding, Robust defoliation and Topping
    Music-Industrial Metal
    Hopefully, this will be better than the last nightmare.

      She's at the 67 day mark - didn't stretch as much as I thought she would have - she's at about 18 inches. Looks good tho.

      Canuck147 Does sound like the type of lass I like growing. Planning on flipping at 17 to get to 20 roughly so that`s useful info mate-cheers

      She slowed down after topping and never really stretched much after shooting out her pistils. Was a freebie seed so haven't another one to grow and compare.

    Well, the Curse of the Pagan has reared it`s head again. Started 2 Red Diesels using the wet tissue method. Usually they start strong and vibrant. First one broke the shell and nice tap root which then just went black and died. The second had the palest of those initial little leaves before curling up and calling it a day. So, started third one off. Has sprouted, one leaf and very pale....I shall wait and see how she pans out. In truth I`m surprised as this is rare to have seeds go naff on me from Barneys and it`s strange that all 3 have come out with mega pale leaves that don`t go green quickly either. Only thing I can assume is that it was a duff batch or a little bit too old.
    Peyote (Below) on the other hand is doing well. In a 10 l pot for a-whiles and coming along nicely

      PaganRich How old were the seeds? I have strange things happen sometimes--not all the time--with older seeds...

      alltatup Well, like life Atu, younger seeds do have more virility but in this instance I am unaware if my seed was retrospective or incumbent..., stoned first time in 13 days-check this out my honary shieldmaiden

    Hi Pagan, the picture looks similar to me fighting root aphids. Here is a picture of my peyote critical. It went in this container on 5/9. she and I fought a couple battles with root aphids and so far we are winning. She is in first week flower. Already has trichs.

    Ordered some fresh Red Diesel seeds only to be told there`s a delay Barney`s end....have them on order so hopefully should be a fresher batch but my little lass is still hanging in there. Took 48hrs but she`s turned green albeit slightly dismembered. Gonna run with her as she`s such a little scaper to have made it this far. Might name her Boudica after the warrior queen

        PaganRich your baby should pull thru, just fine, she might be a little slower, to start with, but I bet she finishes very nicely.
        Have a great weekend, Mate.
        Stay Cool ,Bro.
        What music are you into at the moment ?

        D.A.A.S.69 Hey up D mate...cheers for the positive vibes towards the lass, comment wise mate....sounds, well...loads of industrial metal but also bands like the Wipers (Portland punk USA), Revolting Cocks (1980`s), bit of Throbbing Gristle, loads of TripHop but especially Sad Movies track
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syUYy4V2YCM
        Cocteau Twins and early Cure with a bit of either fire crackling or thunder and lightning or post nuclear howling winds sounds
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZo45IPcBug
        Bowie, Dylan, Placebo and Stevie Nicks and a bit of Genesis...I was taught drums by a professional big band drummer and he started me out on the Beatles, Genesis and Rush-not exactly light stuff, my bloody arms were flying everywhere.
        What tunes are you hitting mate?

      #8
      Well, little Red Diesel is hanging in there. Reckon worst may be behind her, now just tlc and chill time and see where she goes (Pic 1),,prob be dead by tonight since I`ve said that.
      Peyote is coming along nicely. Gonna top her `round 5"+ to start manifold so not long to wait (Pic 2)

        I've never tried the peyote. If I remember correct you have grown it before. What is your assessment of that strain?

      #9
      Ah, Pagan, you too deal with Murphy's Law and jinxes? 😋

      Pulling up a chair here, until you show up with my cuppa...or a black+tan! Ha, good luck brotha!

          Pagan I've never seen that here locally. And I love beer and love trying new beer. At one time I'd stop on my way home, buy a six pack, and drink 3. I always put the other 3 in the fridge in my guest house (I dont have that house any more damit.) But I bought a different beer everyday. So when I offered people beer and they said anything I'd make them choose. I had over 200 kinds at one time. Alas I went broke and slowly drank them all.

          @MeetaFeesha I appreciate your appreciation of a finely poured pint mate-spot on Spidermite man, I like your thinking-different beers to choose from sounds a nice way to spend an evening though I`m sorry to hear that way of life had to go

        Spidermite Afternoon mate, hope your mellow mate...check out The Wipers-This Time-really into this track big time at the moment

        Barney's Farm does it again by combining the infamous Peyote Purple with their own Critical Kush. Peyote Critical Seeds keep Critical's amazing yields, Kush's relaxed attitude & adds Peyote Purple's unique sweet flavour & soft colours. Mould resistance is extra high & these weed seeds are kind to beginners. What more could you want?
        • Peyote Critical Yields 650 gr/m2 Inside!
        • Very Hardy - High Potency
        • Aroma: Aged Wood & Sweet Coffee
        • Taste: Sweet & Earthy

        With just 55 days of bloom, Barney's Farm Peyote Critical can do their thing to the tune or 650 gr/m2 of sugar-coated, purple-hued buds that're firm, heavy for their size and oozing with bag appeal. Their 80% Indica genetics shine through for a deep body buzz that's focused, calm and mentally up. What you waiting for?

        This is my fav strain and has been for a year or so. As you know my headspace gets rocky. This is my go to for those times, very soothing but uplifting and gives me the chuckles but really helps with my headspace edginess I get, takes it down a few notches. Lovely lass to grow and like desertdan, I`d reckon you`d grow a blinder if you had a crack at her...she`s the one I turn to when I`m not good in myself. I`ve grown stronger-LSD is pretty wicked at the moment as well as Mind Can`Trol but she still gives a hefty kick, smooth flavoursome smoke though munchies and dieting can clash a bit....should be on a commission for Barneys...
        Grow wise she`s robust and easy to train but can finish very quickly I`ve noticed
        Hope that helps

        It`s bloody hot over here...currently 32C and man alive I`m dying. Got 9 seedlings going and managing to keep the heat around 30-31 with a break coming tomorrow and temps dropping back down to a more reasonable 23.
        I have applied a neem spray last week and will do weekly throughout veg and early flowering. I added a bit of insecticide soap to help adhere. I also used a light feeding compost tea but it`s very light.
        Pic 1 shows Red Diesel which is cruising along very nicely
        Pic 2 and 3 shows Peyote Critical...I topped her last week as growth was strong and wondered how she`d do without waiting til growth reached the 6th node and then chop back to 3rd so I went and topped just after 3rd. She handled it well (Pic 2) so I took off growth below today and took 2 cuttings which I have started off for further plants (Pic 3). All in all, not bad...happy so far and curious to see how she will respond to trimming

            As far as my headspace goes I've found that Black Widow helps me alot. Black Widow is actually the true and original white widow. When the original breeder left he changed the name from White Widow to Black Widow. And it works amazing as far as my paranoia, ptsd, stress, and constant worrying about others goes.

          My veg tent runs a MH and it`s hot in there so powered up the Vipars-been looking for an excuse-and it`s still 32C say 90f in my main tent but the weather`s broken and storms are riding in so expecting tent temps to fall below 30 coming day or 2. Got great airflow in there and reckon they`re be mellow til things adjust a bit. Very blue though...lovely colour...so, got Bud Bud Bling Tingz, Delhi Friend, Red Diesel, Peyote Critical and Gorilla Breath in there and cuttings rooting so a positive start and if I get mites again I will just shut down this time, no long term battles this time but hopefully the little f##kers have gone on holiday

            Pots look real cool in their risers - I can see why you aren't growing outdoors, it looks so barren. Hehehe - my guess is Nepal.
