    Experienced Growers Wanted

    no worries..... I was told that staff is not allowed to participate. It will make the members think that the mods are getting unfair prizes and are being bias.

    Need Your Grow Questions Answered? Come On In!

    10 weeks? your best bet is to let it ride from here and NOT treat your plants with anything. when you cut the plants for harvest, cut the entire plant, hang it upside down, and spray the stem, at the top, where you cut it ......with alcohol, neem oil, and everything you have. after you harvest the plant it will begin to dry out ..... within 24-48 hours all the mites will walk off the leaves/flowers of your hanging plant and walk to the top ......... where the stem was cut.... you can kill them here. obviously you should treat everything in your garden now too. using anything at this point will leave dead mite carcasses in your meds ..... best to hang the entire plant and let them walk off your flowers at will .... then kill them at the top. rubbing alcohol kills resin glands so its not good to use during the flower stage.

    Need Information On "auto's" For Experiment.

    autoflower isn't the way to go if you are looking to keep things as cheap as possible indoors. its just the facts really. with a dialed in perpetual grow of 12 photoperiod strains you can easily harvest 3-4 ounces every 9-10 days using the same amount of plants, light, and time as it would take to grow half that with autoflower strains. all strains are different, im just talking in general. the reason that autoflowers are all the rage overseas is mainly for the outdoor growers. its a way to have a harvest in august as well as the normal harvest in sept/oct. if you take the yield per plant and add in lights, time, and everything else....... in our Michigan setting, with our limits...... autoflower indoors really is not the way to go. yes, I believe there are some pretty good and higher yielding/potent autos out there.... but its pretty rare. if you can grow an auto in 60 days and get one ounce, you doing great...... but you could easily get 2-3 ounces in just 75 days with the right photoperiod strain. its well worth doubling your harvest for just an extra 2 weeks. also, if you grow photoperiod strains, you may not even have to grow 12 to keep a steady supply...... obviously less plants means less light/nutes/money...... just my 2 cents

    Metal Halide On New Plants

    looks like you are getting sound advice as far as the light goes. I just wanted to give a bit of input from personal experience about hempy's ......... it is almost always, 100% of the time better to put them in their final container from the beginning instead of gradually moving up to larger pot sizes like in soil. its not going to kill anything by putting them in smaller containers first, but it will save you time because they WILL go through a bit of a shock from being transplanted. best of luck. I hope you keep everyone posted as to your progress.

    haha. thanks very much. she is a cutie .......... well I hope its a "she".... im not into that other stuff. seriously though .... I was "schooling" a family member/new grower earlier today and we were going back through the pages of this journal and comparing it to what he has going on now. he was asking about color and density and all that and it got me thinking...... it really comes down to time, observation, and that good old practice makes perfect thing. anyone can learn the basics, but it what you put into it as far as observing I guess. after SO many plants over the years I literally can just look at them and tell what they want. sometimes its a pale look, or a slight curl in a leaf. could be anything..... but when I see it I just "know" if its nutes, temps, light, humidity..... whatever. its best to write EVERYTHING down for a few years so you always have something to go back to until these things are committed to memory.

    I feel ya. im often on my phone as well. anyways.... here's what you are looking for: http://michiganmedicalmarijuana.org/topic/18150-need-your-grow-questions-answered-come-on-in/ that's the first page of the help thread. that one is a little bigger/longer/more pages/more info than this thread. its 107 pages i think. this is my grow journal, and ill always be helping people here and there in my grow journal, but the help thread is pretty much dedicated to just growing info/methods/setups/whatnot. I had considered combining them to avoid confusion, but now that they are both pretty big, I think it would just create more confusion

    4-8/5-10 ..... not much difference there. so you can come out of the cloner, into 4-8, let that roll for a week to 10 days and then dump/refill with 8-16 and run it until the flip to flower. that's how I run mine anyways.

    if it ain't broke, don't fix it but..... you might have a stronger veg period if you dump that 5-10 after a week or so and then refill with 8-16 to finish veg.
