      The pic is of TOKABIGONE ‘s Maui auto flower. I was supposed to send him a smoke report but I got stoned and I missed it. 😎

    The third Purple Bubba now named Pretty Baby is coming along nicely this morning and four new seeds are in paper towels. They're Critical Mass photos not PB but they fill out a grow for now. Should be sprouted by tomorrow with luck. At least I know it's not because I mixed the soil too hot for seedlings. As BU2B had the same thing happen it may be it's strain related or weak genetics in sprouting. Just guessing now.

      Now the race is on
      And here comes pride in the backstretch
      Heartache's goin' to the inside
      My tears are holdin' back
      They're tryin' not to fall

      My heart's out of the runnin'
      True love's scratched for another's sake
      The race is on and it looks like heartache
      And the winner loses all

      It's looking like I may have 4 girls. YIKES! Somebody's gonna have to go

      Just a comment on the comment: contrary to popular belief these are not the lyrics of a Sawyer Brown song OR a George Jones song; but ARE the lyrics written by Don Rollins and recorded by both.

    I’ll allow their tales to grow more over night and plant them next to their sisters tomorrow.


    Confession time: I did indeed ‘put’ the seeds into the jiffy-pods point down. But after 8 hours I just couldn’t stand it and opted to dig them up and go the paper towel method I have ALWAYS used. Even when growing in dirt I have always started my seeds germination process with a damp paper towel and baggie with a hole punched in it. It has never failed me and though Tika would be frowning I just feel better if I can see what’s happening. This is the honest truth - in going on 10 years, 3 grows a year, two plants or more each grow; I have only had one seed that did not germinate with this method. As long as the towel is damp not wet and kept warm and dark it always works, and works faster if done in conjunction with a full OR new moon.

      Well they will break easier - so you have to use a bit more care, tweezers even. You can’t just toss them in the crate like your average 5 year old - rotfl

      Okay … I have to say, we have never put our kid in a crate. But there has been more than once as he was growing up that we did give the option a good re-think. Ah the joys of owning pets; unlike children you can crate them for your piece of mind 🙃 and their safety.

      Yeah buddy, Maybe I need a diff pair of tweezers; last time I used them I picked up a seed which then flew across the room never to be seen again! Did I squeeze too tight? lmao

      I was talking to TOKABIGONE recently just about things in general when I mentioned something I can't help but notice. I stopped doing The OG Group because of health issues and obligations with working to correct some of those very real things that I need to address in my life. Yet, here I am, putting in twice the amount of time I was expending on the OG Group, and while the health issues haven't gone away, they have been a lot more tolerable with a friend or two in tow.

      I was thinking, maybe, just maybe, 2022 could be the year of Growing Together (as opposed to growing apart). Find yourself a grow buddy on GWE! It will keep you on your toes, always desiring to do your best, allow you to share and compare buds with your bud if they live within driving distance, give you new experiences and opportunities to see and ponder how someone else does it and make you feel a whole lot better in the process! Besides, there's an amazing group of you here on GWE to share smiles, grins & growing pains with. It sounds like a Win/Win/Win situation to me. Here's to Growing Together! Forgive me, but I truly am a music aholic and can't help but hear "The more we get together, together, together, the more we get together the happier we'll be" and on that note I'm off to get ready to see the dr at dawn and then to plant the babies, as far as I know, I'll be back.

      Good Morning!

        It's A little funny how I started reading BU2B 's posts and I thought I sure would like to meet this guy someday. He knows a lot about a lot! I even mentioned it once on here and to my surprise I got a PM from him that we were only about 250 miles apart which is still driving distance overnite trip and we should meet sometime. The rest is history as is said. Now we've become good friends and to the point, I have certainly learned a lot. Sharing an interest and working together is indeed much better and more fun than solo. I'm just a little too old to ever absorb all this guy knows about growing weed. Definitely find a grow buddy and your load will be lightened!

      Before and after planting seed batch 2. Now both jiffy pods have two seedlings each. We’ll see how that plays out. Suzie is looking good. Hazel still looks a bit puny but Hazel #2 should be popping her head up soon.

        Nothing is believable concerning Covid now. The so called experts paid off by big pharma to push the never ending shots that are proving to be less and less effective daily. Wear a mask, don’t wear a mask, oh crap wear your masks again. Governments around the globe using Covid to increase their power over citizens and cram communism down everyone’s throats. Yea, I’ll do my part and smoke more weed

        This is ALMOST light hearted. Keep in mind this was pushed to my browser by the same folks that posted the story that starramus mentioned last week or so. NO human studies have been done, this is all in lab. I would also point out that if you'ld ask someone from Washington State which was hit hard and is legal they would be rolling their eyes and clucking their tongues at this one.

        Meanwhile back in Arizona, after 3 days my seeds have germinated in paper towels with a 3/4 in tap root so I put them in dirt. I've never had tap roots this long before and I found I could pick them up with a toothpick thru the root curl and position how I please. Handling them after germ has been an issue for me but i'm over it now. I germed 4 Critical Mass photo fems so now I will have 2 too many if they all come up. I may put 2 each into two 7 gal bags. BU2B has 2 in each pod so that's fair, lol. I'll have to be on my best game here!

          These 3 things saved these two seedlings. Rooting hormone 3mg, hydroguard 10ml and ph balanced water was lightly sprayed on ailing seedlings and the soil directly surrounding them.

            Today all 4 new seeds have sprouted and are growing. One has helmet head but It's trying hard to shed it. I have to decide within 2 weeks when I transplant what to do with them. I'm in three 7 gal pots so I may put 2 in 2 of them. I'll decide then whether to keep or toss them tho I don't like to do this with $10 seeds.

            Right now I'm leaning toward doubling two pots though they may require some extreme manifold and lst. I think I know enough to be successful at this time. Almost twice the water and teas and watch like a hawk!

              OMG! There are rules? I think the hope was and still is for us both to grow at least one of the same strain; one in wonder soil and one in deep water culture hydro.

              The only rule is grow the best Purple Bubba you can in your particular medium for a comparison. It's really all in fun. Actually I wound up with 4 additional photo of a diff strain just to fill out my grow when I needed two because I sprouted extra to be sure and of course these all came up and I can't throw them out as it's the last of my seed supply for now Puglover1.

            Sorry for the delay folks - my computer had a bit of a meltdown. All that can be done is or has been done so all is well. The girls are looking good. The two Suzies are doing exceptionally well. I regret to inform you that Hazel #1 went kicking and screaming with her tiny yellow leaves pointing defiantly to the sky. Photos and more blather hopefully coming from the computer keyboard instead of the phone by tomorrow. Happy Pharming!

              Just a quickie update...overnite the 4 new girls bolted some so I will add more soil to fill and have additional rooting. I usually start them in solo cups about 3/4 full for this reason. I also lowered the light from 15" to 12" to stop the reaching. As I have 2 extra I am going to put 2 into two 7 gal bag to grow out with some heavy training. The largest one is the Purple Bubba which is about a week older than the new ones and has it's second node growing. It will have it's own 7 gal pot. Three 7 gal pots under three 100w q panels.
