  1. What kind of help does he need?
  2. If you mean will it continue to grow into another flowering plant right away then probably not. You may be able to re-veg and keep the strain though. It depends on how long it has been budding and on the strain. Nip off the buds and put it under lights 24 hours a day.
  3. Flood lights would definitely create a problem but small yard lights as referred to by the original poster shouldn't be a problem. My main point in this thread is not to over think things and not obsess over small problems. There is going to be a learning curve like anything else but from the pictures the plant is doing great. I've had outdoor grows that didn't start to flower until September and turned out just fine.
  4. I wouldn't worry. Some strains take longer than others. I'm partial to sativas and some of them have real long cycles. Nor would I worry too much about light exposure. If you have bright lights shining on them all night it might create a problem but incidental light is generally OK. Unless you are growing a strain that comes from a world with no moon. As far as time left you should be OK. I've found that the biggest drawback to growing outside is mold. When the fall rains come and the sun doesn't dry the buds out they tend to mold many times. Since you're growing in pots you can alwa
  5. Get a new caregiver and tell all your friends what this bozo is selling. He needs to get out of the business before he makes someone sick. https://www.edrosenthal.com/the-guru-of-ganja-blog/the-dangers-of-microbial-contaminants-in-cannabis-and-how-to-prevent-mold-and-mildew
  6. Oakland County drug warrior Jessica Cooper has been defeated in the Democratic Primary. This comes as welcome news to those of us who have been subjected to her vindictive treatment of cannabis patients. Jessica, we voted you out "for the children". McDonald upsets incumbent Prosecutor Jessica Cooper Bill Laitner, Detroit Free Press Published 12:34 a.m. ET Aug. 5, 2020 | Updated 2:44 a.m. ET Aug. 5, 2020 With 83% of precincts reporting, former Oakland County Circuit Judge Karen McDonald was headed toward an upset win in Tuesday’s Democratic primary election for Oakland C
  7. The whole point of selective breeding is to bring out the characteristics that the breeder likes in a strain. You presume to know what is in the mind of a breeder. You say the new strains are all for greater yield but that isn't true. Many of the new strains are bred to increase potency. If you crossbreed two heavy hitters you are likely to get a new strain of heavy hitter. Sometimes stronger than the originals. For any trait you can think of whether it's high CBD, high THC, short plants, bushy plants or plants with attractive colors or aroma there is someone looking to bring that t
  8. Not really flowering but it is showing it's sex. Those are pistils and are female pre-flowers.
  9. It's a good looking plant. Have you topped it at all or is that it's regular growth habit?
  10. You won't know until you try it. Large doesn't necessarily mean weak. Some strains like Big Bud were bred for size and weren't as strong as some of the other strains. They have since come up with some new strains that are higher yielding but still produce good meds.
  11. Unless you are making financial transactions or are sending sensitive personal information it should be OK. I don't think many of us are doing those things on here. But whatever makes you feel safest. SSL serves three purposes (I'll use a snail-mail analogy to illustrate): Keep the communication secret: prevent the mailman from reading your letters. Verify that the communication is unaltered: prevent the mailman from altering your letters. Verify the identity of the sender: prevent someone else from sending you letters under a false name. Note that points 1 and 2 are
  12. It's just an expired SSL certificate. https://www.venafi.com/education-center/ssl/fix-expired-certificates
  13. The thing that has worked for me in getting rid of mites is simply rinsing them off with cold water. If the plant is small enough submerse it entirely in cold water for a few seconds. The water won't hurt the plants at all and the mites will float right off. Larger plants can be put in the shower and rinsed with a hand held shower head. Rinse them off with a spray of cold water paying particular attention to the undersides of the leaves. Do this every two days until the mites are gone. They may not all rinse off right away but even if a few manage to stick their reproductive cyc
  14. It would be best to retain an attorney that you trust. It may cost a little more but a good attorney is the only friend you have in the criminal justice system. Why risk jail, fines , probation coasts, community service, drug counseling etc. just to save a few bucks in the short term. Kormorn Law is one of the premier cannabis law firms in the state. If they can't help you then they should be able to refer you to someone in your area. It sounds like any competent lawyer would be able to get the charges dropped or at least reduced. If they are charging him with having cannabis in his syste
  15. If you have the room to do it I would suggest you try growing your own. It saves you money and you always know where your meds came from and can be sure nothing harmful has been sprayed on it.
  16. This is the same kind of attempt to work around the law that we saw when people were trying the "daisy chain" sales model. "I'll be your caregiver and you be my caregiver and my cousin will buy overages as one of my patients." I'm sure this brought in a great deal of revenue for both the State and defense lawyers. If you want to sell then do it the right way. Jump through all the hoops and pay the fees. If you do it any other way then, yes it is illegal. Selling black market is still your best bet for making money but don't pretend you are working within the law. Why not just gi
  17. When LEO was looking for loop holes in the law they would frequently say the holes inn the fencing had to be small enough that a person couldn't fit their hand through. Might not hurt to put some chicken wire on the deer fencing so elves can't slip through the holes.
  18. Charlotte Figi, Colorado Girl Who Inspired CBD Movement To Control Seizures, Passes Away From Coronavirus April 8, 2020 at 4:30 pm DENVER (CBS4) — Charlotte Figi, a Colorado girl who was among the first children to be treated with cannabidiol (CBD) to control seizures, has died from complications related to COVID-19, according to the Colorado Sun. She was 13 years old. Charlotte’s story changed the way people viewed the use of CBD and she appeared in a 2013 documentary by CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta. “Charlotte’s story directly impacted thousands of families across the globe and
  19. I checked out one of the spam posts recently and they also offered fake ID. I'm certain neither the cannabis or ID would be delivered.
  20. I live in Ferndale and for years my water came out of the tap at 6 ph. A couple of years ago they put in new water lines and it wiped out my whole hydro system overnight. My guess was some additive they put in for the new pipes. Ever since this happened the water from the tap is now 8 to 8.5 ph. Definitely let the water sit before using it and adjust the ph as needed.

  23. I love this guys quote. "We have always put patients first when we make decisions regarding medical marijuana,” MRA Executive Director Andrew Brisbo said in the bulletin. “This phase out process is an important next step in implementing the will of Michigan voters and making sure that patients continue to have access to their medicine.” What a sense of humor! He meant to say, ..."making sure that patients continue to pay taxes on their medicine"
