  1. i tried the oven,, works ok ,, but its too fast, some im just doing on nets like when i dry my meds same process different net :) i had a dehydrator but it broke so i chucked it, didnt think i would need another one..


    Yes i soaked in salt water.. 

  2. well i fried a little up in butter, but i took the rest and am trying to dehydrate it for storage, some i put in freezer bags and froze it.. later i'll try a soup with it , and some for stock.. its pretty good eating.. :)


    Shtz is hard to clean , it seems to grow around stuff,, bark and pine needles in the middle.. but seems to be enough to make it worth while.. that one weighs in around 5lbs.. not bad for one mushroom, and i did find another smaller one near by .. and ya they was there last year but i saw them too late..

  3. one light costs me an extra 50. approx @1k.. two, 100. thats a ball park, for winter months,  in the summer you have to add another 50. approx for an A/C.. bigger you are the more it costs.. i guess you have all the fans, an circulation covered... 

  4. Ok I"m not good at mushroom identification.. but i found this little devil out by the old distressed oak tree.. anyone know what this baby is. I have an idea but didn't plan on eatin it till I know for sure.. I know ther is a couple shroom pickers on this site. Any help would be great an how i can prepare or save it till i want to eat it.. Best way to eat it if its edible? 







  5. I thought the only difference was the bx has a biofunguside mixed in

    Its quite possible that is also a difference.. I never read the labels.. lol  But I used it for years and prefered the hp when i asked the difference from supplier they told me it was how much of the perlite mixture vs vermiculite.. then again they coulda just told me what they thought and didn't know either.. but two diffenent places gave me that "difference" but i never asked about funguscide... 

  6. when i used it an the same thing happened to me, on more than 1 occasion.... I found the bx stayed moist longer and i was prone to over water it, but hp (high porosity) btw, with more airflow tended to dry a bit faster and less prone to water log up, That's all i can add.. you could add a bit more perlite to it.. or similar and you get HP.. maybe i got that backwards.. lol ok i checked it out..I was right the first time perlite is the choice...


    Perlite and vermiculite are both good at retaining water, but vermiculite acts more like a sponge, holding much more water than perlite and offering less aeration for the plant roots. Perlite retains water because of its large surface area with nooks and crannies available for water storage. Because it is porous it allows excess water to drain more readily than vermiculite and improves soil aeration.

  7. I run a scaled down system..always referred to it as a RDWC but its the same to me..only difference is that i only use one inch lines, not them big donkey ones, and i use a different nutrient system, not organic, house and garden, but each pot is aerated and the water is constantly circulating.. i do wish i had used larger lines to connect my pots..however its the fastest growing, and heaviest harvest I ever got indoors.. IF 2" in pvc lines are a prerequisite. then can't help ya :)

  8. I can say that I went on a long hunt for grape ape.. over 2 yrs to find the cut i wanted. Never heard it called Kramer Kut.. I got a Barneys Farm version cut.. And i have been running it ever since 2011.. I tend to agree with Wet.. I had a strain I crossed out.. and of course it was Willy's Blue Ice.. a cross of Alaskan Ice/ DJ Shorts Blue Berry.. Gave many cuts out, and it was well received, I lost the strain tho out of negligence.. or was too high..It was a huge producer all most everyone got 8 zips on hydro. Lovely but ya it is nice to throw your moniker on your sheit like that.  


    And i forgot to say i went thru 3 other cuts of grape ape... before i settled on the Barneys. there is 4 cuts floating around michigan.. I never got the fourth, I found it but the guy would not let me have a cut.. due to prior agreement with his clone supplier. A give it away you dont get no more from me.. them strain hoarders .. darn peeps.. lol

  9.  more than a lock?

    sure more than a lock, guarded by a large dog. camera security.plus dont let them find it.... list goes on an on.. you have to remember your dealing with bullying aholes, with a sense of superiority.  The only way is what they tell you at the time..and you can't beleive that either.. new laws are jus a new way to generate revenue.. arrests aren't going to stop..  

  10. I highly recommend grape ape if they have it.. pure indica or should be.. i grow it for pain, muscle spasms, and sleeping.. not real bad for anxiety,, but can cause it.. I have to grow lots my pain patients and my MS patients love the hell outta it.. the cali dream is good also but i dont know about anxiety ,, that can depend on stage it was harvests. take your scope and check the bud out.. look for bugs, mold, and trics etc...


    Strain Highlights

    Grape Ape, propagated by Apothecary Genetics and Barney’s Farm, is a mostly indica strain that crosses Mendocino PurpsSkunk, and Afghani. Named for its distinct grape-like smell, this indica is known for providing carefree relaxation that can help soothe painstress, and anxiety. Its dense, compact buds are wreathed in deep purple leaves which darken as this indica reaches full maturation following its 7 to 8 week flowering time.
