    Thank you!! I'm new to posting. But GWE is why I am semi successful. All the information on this site is so helpful. I read everything about growing here if I had a problem, and I had many, I would come to grow weed easy and start reading again. If these new growers would sit down and start reading these great articles. I think we would see far less help me posts.

      OF COURSE, this is GWE you can talk about ANYTHING Cannabis related. If you would like to be a member of the OG Group, please start at the top of OG Group Forum and read the posts in chronological order. IF you don't have at least 5 years of growing experience or have at least 50 years of life in your rear view mirror; I'm sorry to say you don't qualify as an OLD Grower or an Old GROWER. With that in mind by all means feel free to ask us old farts any question you would like. However, Your grow looks great, and if you qualify and abide by our simple guidelines we would be more than happy to welcome you aboard. I also see you started your own Forum/Journal GOOD FOR YOU it's a great way to show off your skills and to get in touch with other growers whose growing styles are similar to yours or whose information is challenging enough to make you try something new. The purpose of THIS forum/journal is to offer help to newbies or any others who have a 'growing problem' (ROTFL I always wanted to say that ) that they would like or need one on one help with.

      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

      IMPORTANT RECENT NEWS:
      What is phytol and is it safe to vape?

      IF you vape cannabis oil purchased from a dispensary or make your own - you should be aware of this additive (a terpene)

      IF you use commercial cannabis vape products (especially Canadian but generally any/all commercial vape products) you should take the time to educate yourself about phytol what it is, how it is currently being used and the very real health risks of vaporizing this additive terpene.

      "A study released in late 2020 says that phytol, an ingredient used in some cannabis vape pen formulations, causes severe pulmonary injury and even death after inhalation dosing in rats. A new, in-depth report released by Leafly has highlighted the 2020 safety study of phytol, commissioned by Canopy Growth."

      Here is an article from LEAFLY regarding Phytol; what it is, and how it is used. WHAT IS PHYTOL?

        Interesting post. I don’t use vape liquids/carts but I have been know to use concentrates (resin/rosin/wax) on rare occasion. Is phytol added to things other than vape liquids? I’ll watch for it in the future.

      What IS the purpose of the OG Group?

      GWE member Tersky asks:

      "Not trying to be a downer, but why does age matter? Is this a group for experienced growers or old growers? Are you implying that a 60 year old 3 days into their first grow ever is better at giving advice than a 27 year old with 3 and a half years experience? It just seems odd to have the over 50 or 5 years exp. Not trying to hate just confused as to the purpose of this group."

      Here ya go folks - the floor is yours - OG Group member or not my personal belief is that opinions are good things (like a$$ holes, everyone's got one that serves a purpose). However, unlike a$$ holes opinions are best brought into the cold light of day and thoroughly examined from all sides.

      It was my hope that the OG Groups 5 guidelines (which I will repeat here would have answered What the Purpose of the OG Group is - but; that doesn't appear to be the case.
      1. Please be kind to each other and do your best to put yourself in the other persons shoes.
      2. Please don't talk down others in public - Keep squabbles and personal differences private. See OG Group forum guidelines #5 below
      3. This is NOT a substitute for other forums or topics - just an additional resource.
      4. Please tell us enough about your growing method and experience that people can find you easily in this forum. See Posting Guideline Suggestions
      5. NOTE: this forum is NOT for posting questions or getting answers about growing directly in the forum, but instead will give you a list of GWE users who are willing to answer your question(s) personally - if they can OR direct you to a forum or other user whose posts might be more helpful.
      Comments & Opinions welcome

      Were here to help if we can... pure and simple. If you've got 5 years of growing experience YOU ARE AN OLD GROWER (like it or not) Keep Growing Folks! as the wheel turns the love wouldn't die!

        I think the purpose of the group is stated in the OP of the thread. I agree that if you have experience and can help there's no reason you shouldn't and certainly the opportunity is there whenever questions are posted regardless of whether you belong to the OG group or any other designated group recognized, or not, by the forum. I also agree that age is irrelevant and some people learn things faster than others. Either way if I feel someone is a good resource I'll ask them for help until they tell me to cease and desist...haha...it's all good...

      #39
      A - Tersky brings up a good point
      B - For me personally, age is NOT a factor in whether you can grow or not, but combined with growing skill the combination is unbeatable by any standards.
      C - All we're saying is don't overlook the valuable resource that OLD growers offer; whether that is old by age or old by growing experience.
      D - NOT being vocal or outspoken is not the same as being of no value. Many of us regardless of age are of the opinion that there is some truth to the saying; "Better to keep one's mouth closed and be thought a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt."
      E - I personally am done with this topic. I'm not here to bicker, or prove myself right, or be responsible for everyone over the age of 50. I, and those who have gracefully allotted their time, skill, experience and energy into helping others if we can - don't really need a reason to help and just do it because it's the right thing to do.
      F - The OG Group is really just a covert front for individuals who have come to know and respect cannabis for what it is and want to help others grow the best, most potent, stress free buds possible. Some of us are OLD but popping into the oldfolks home and asking want to play a round of 'why don't you just die already' (game title) is maybe, just a wee bit rude

          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. ;<)

            The Virginia number for consumers per capita kind of surprises me. I think people liked out of paranoia.
            NC is a bit of a surprise but I think like Virginia, they were a burley tobacco state that is losing tax income as fewer people smoke cigarettes so they're looking for a way to bring those dollars back to the state. I read long ago that Phillip Morris bought the rights to "Marley", as in Bob's last name. Makes me think they've had a long range plan...
