      Hi all my break is over . I'm 63 been growing for awhile outside in my youth and inside since legal ,Inside has been quite a journey ,I've learned a lot of things not to do lol, My inside grows started with a 5x8x7 tent that I split into 2 sides one for veg the other bloom , My first light was a 1000w hps in a big kahuna this worked until the zipper on the tent broke ,I then built a grow room 9x13 but not all of it is usable space unless I add more lights ,because of its length I added a light rail to move my HPS back and forth, after a year of fighting with the light mover (I kept wearing out the bearings on the motor) I was able to talk to someone at light rail it turned out the big kahuna was to heavy so I switched to 630 cmh this worked great so I added another 630 , I then built an automatic watering system and drainage system and happily grew in 3 gallon pots filled with Coco until last August then I developed an ulcer on the bottom of my foot and had to stay off of my foot ,I had a friend take care of the grow but he wasn't used to the system and the signs of what was needed anyways I pulled the watering systems cleaned out the room and have it ready to go in September .While I built the room I used the tent for veg and on the bloom side I tried to grow autos but my cellar is not conducive to giving the best conditions for autos and I never saw a good enough yield to cover the cost of electricity its a good storage spot now lol,I still use the veg side ,I have two t 5s in it one a 4 light and one an 8 I use 4 hortilux super veg bulbs ,I built a clone/seedling tent ,I grew in coco up until now I want to try soil I followed GWE super soil recipe and plan to use it in Sept.
      Now for outside I've been doing small isolated grows for years started by digging holes for 5 gallons of super soil and planting in them, now I use 7 gallon grow bags and carry them out in spring and in in the fall we use straps over our shoulders to tie on the 2 inside handles and we hold the outside this allows you to carry 2 bags at a time,this year we are down to 12 plants in the woods the other 28 plants went to family and friends due to loosing our best grow spot , I have 12 plants in 25 to 40 gallon pots in my green house all have been manifolded in some form . I use a bud spinner when trimming so my drying is done on a tiered net and I use the duff from the spinner to make hash or oil I tend to do oil its just easier .
      I would be happy to help when I can
      new grow room built summer of 2017 ,argo max tent for veging ,big kahuna reflector, 1000hps with added leds for the full spectrum . 15th indoor grow ,5 years outside gorilla grows(stealth is the key),veg under t5s growing autos under 300w leds

        MIA myself for several months… So, hello to all my old friends and to the new ones here. Great concept for a post and of course the original concept of this forum.
        As has been said many times growing shit weed is easy. So the focus remains on getting the most out of it that you can. After one of my first classes on growing, I was able to take The plan for post processing to a much higher level where you can to a point, take shit weed and concentrate it into something better …subsequently, you can take great weed and turn it into an amazing experience.

        I hope to see you all more often here

          Post processing is my weakest area, got to get better at it.

        I've been thinking about something for awhile now that I think might behoove us all to consider. That is simple fact that we are a global community each with our native customs and upbringing and many are not super conversant in American English and ways of expression or terms used. Once in a while I see some short temper derisiveness or dismissal due to mis- understanding. I do not exclude myself from this bad behavior and I regret this. Patience and common courtesy are virtues I struggle with too but I'm trying! Just thought we can all use a little reminder now and then. Smile when your writing and it will show through!

          I've 'held my tongue' if I wasn't sure of someone's question or thought it was kind of 'simple'. Even native English-speaking growers can have communication challenges, be on the spectrum, insecure, or just learn differently but they're trying to grow their medicine, same as everyone else. Great post.

          Thanks Puglover1, you are so right! It ain't necessarily "them furriners." I think we all occasionally stumble when trying to express a new idea. Remember just "poking a little fun at someone" can be hurtful. ;<)

        Ok time to admit it. I'm old. Been lurking here for a while now might as well introduce myself. Names 2fast. I'm 50....ish. grew up on a farm to a blue collar dad who was a part time commercial waterman. How's that for a combo. Our high school had a horticultural department and I had to take a lot of burner classes so I spent half of my junior year in the greenhouse. Built my own when I was 11. Always grew my own veggies. Been growing this "veggie" for........awhile. mostly outdoors until recently.
        Been playing with different strains now that I can. One thing about mid Atlantic summers. Way too hot and humid for anything but heavy sativa leaning strains outside. Indoors I can grow anything. My last run one of the three plants was black cream which is 90% indica and she did great. Look forward to chatting with you old coots. Stay off my lawn. Where's my poking stick?

            Got a nice East wind to O'Day. Look at all that free soil amendment. Once the tide goes out I will get to filling the compost bin. And freakshow is starting to get that the end is near fade. Click image for larger version

                      Well hello there fellow seasoned vets. I'm going to draw on this 650 years of knowledge here and see what y'all think if this. Sour stomper is stacking up like crazy. Great vigor on this strain .but what do y'all think of this reddish veining I'm getting in a few of the newer leaves. Name that deficiency.

                        Yellow tips on some of those leaves and general blanching of the uppers could be the beginning of light burn. I saw the same thing on my current grow and adjusted the light levels down to 40 DLI at the tops. That stopped it but didn't reverse the blanching. Mine were about as far into flowering as yours based on the pics. I'd try that before adjusting your nutes.

                      Possibly zinc or manganese.both it seems are caused by too high ph which could be the case. I'm thinking her roots got down into the compost and the seaweed makes it alkaline. I was hoping the soil would buffer it. Going to drop the pH in their water to 6 for a few days and see how she reacts. I'm trying to get better at heading off problems before they get severe but the diagnosis is the hard part.
