    It’s true I haven’t personally sought out the original growers of cultivars, as you mentioned this would be a nearly impossible task after years of genetic preservation and breeding. I travel to large grows all over Michigan and analyze their product, I have the blessing of seeing many seed companies/breeders which are currently testing with high active compounds. I have no doubt there are still small time breeders with a great amount of success just as there always have been, I just haven’t seen them. Always learning! 

    Have you been to the commercial grow in Chesaning?

    Hi I am a caregiver located in Clarkston MI. 
    I have been growing organically in soil for over 6 years, and have horticulture and kinesiology degrees from Michigan State. I work as an analytical chemist in a state  cannabis compliance laboratory, I understand the plants very well. I would be happy to grow strains of your choosing, as well as make trips for you. 
    I have the ability to make high quality Rosin and Edibles, and am currently in the process of special ordering a custom industry-standard freeze drier for the freshest rosin and flower you can experience.
    I have researched and witnessed at my job the best breeders from the USA, Numbers do not lie, and all products can be lab tested at your request including edibles. 

    Quite the resume! Seems incredible that you would have time to do anything but your job. 

    So you say that you 'witnessed' the best breeders in America.

    Well that is just boastful and can't be entirely true because the best breeders are the unknown ones who provided the building blocks behind all the best strains we have today. 

    Since you have only two posts and are bragging your arse off you don't seem quite real yet.

    So if I was to share a photo of 1 plant that was grown in last five months that would cover my previous stated requirements for signing Caregiver for next 2 years I'd be an donkey rectum RIGHT?

    It seems like you are trying to say that someone can grow a whole lot using your patient plant rights? Can't really tell for sure because you have it shrouded in drama. 

    Look, people HAVE grow rights already. They don't need to pay you for yours. They can grow 12 huge plants in the sun. They don't need to complicate it having you on their back. 

  4. There are dispensaries so why would you let anyone 'consistently' rip you off? Is it a relative or something? Or are you asking for something for nothing?

    There are many sources these days asking a fair price so no one needs to stick with a bad source. This is a flashback from the days when there weren't any sources.  The world moved on from there ....

    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.

    The genetics he has also points to a late flowering cannabis strain. The best strains are like that. The weaker ones bud earlier.  The plants I have outdoors that share some of the genetics with his plant are just starting to bud. 

    This has been the best year for growing outdoors I can remember as long as you have a water source because we are in a second drought right now.

    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.

    This is just for you Wild Bill.

    We had a really nice hydrangea plant that quit flowering. I researched why it would be doing that and came up with a few ideas that turned out to be not the problem. It's planted next to the pool. Always bloomed beautifully. 

    Last year I had a half a dozen mother plants that I figured I would put outside in the back yard, since it's legal now. 

    They grew fantastically, big healthy plants. 

    When the time came for them to bloom they just kept vegging except for there being a few buds that were on the far side from the light.

    They just kept growing like that. October came and went. They died there like that. Sad.

    It was obvious that the LED on the pole barn was giving them enough light to keep them from budding. 

    Then it dawned on me that the hydrangea had the same problem. It had started not blooming the year I switched from a mercury light to the brighter LED.

    I moved the hydrangea to the other side of the pool so the deck shaded it from the LED night light and it has beautiful blooms again this year.

    So this is one of those times that actual experience matters. Not guessing on this.

    The moon has a miniscule amount of light compared to a large outdoor LED light. This LED lights up over an acre. Really nice light if you take your dogs out at night. Terrible thing for flowers though.

    I’m getting worried now. Still has not started showing buds / flowering. Do I have enough season left?!

    Two weeks after you found a dark spot. Then figure on at least 6 weeks before harvest. 8 would be better. From the looks of the weather forecast for this fall it looks good into October.

    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 always take them indoors if you expect a killing frost. I've harvested plants with snow on them in the past and they turned out good.

    You can force bloom by covering the plant so it gets no more than 12 hours of sunlight but I would just let nature take it's course.

    In my experience the hardest thing for beginners is not harvesting too early. Newbies frequently jump the gun and chop before the buds are ready. Relax! Nature has been handling things for quite a while now and knows what's best.

    Plus if there is someone growing nearby you may find she has some seeds provided by pollination. You might end up with your very own hybrid.

    Last year. Big LED yard light on my barn. No buds on one side of plants facing the light. First hand experience I shared. Terrible thing. Nice to be able to help someone after having that loss.

    who do i talk to when my caregiver gives me moldy marijuana and refuses to make it right

    Fire them and find a new source. Make sure to let LARA know you want them unconnected to you through the registry. You don't want to be affiliated with them anymore in case they get in trouble.

    I will pull up the ISO2 machine.

    Is this an easy process?


    Not hard but it does have a lot of steps and you have to buy some hardware. 

    You will need the iso machine or a homemade machine that does the same thing.

    And a few things to do the filtering like a vacuum  pump or a seal a meal with vacuum. 

    Couple chemistry items like a special flask and filtering funnel.

    This is like making coffee old school then filtering it a special way.

    Thank you for taking the time out of your day to give a beginner a few tips I do appreciate it

    You are very welcome!  This is one of those rare times when I actually could help someone. Most times on the internet everything gets all fogged up and I can't help anyone. What you said here means a lot to me and I appreciate it.

    Wow! This actually never dawned on me. I do have 3 small led yard lights in my back yard. Usually one is within 10-15 feet of my plant. I’ll take them out today

    You would have went right to frost with no buds. Or buds just on the side the light doesn't hit. Now give it two weeks and you will see buds.

    Every day I wake up hoping to see that my plant has started flowering nope not yet today

    One thing to really look out for is light pollution.  If you are growing near any yard lights make sure their light is blocked from reaching the plant. If there's light pollution she will never bud. 

  14. When you dig down deep all the originals are someone's life's work. Of course they are. Because they wouldn't be still around otherwise.  It takes a lot of time to make a stable strain that good. They never did produce great though. And they are harder to grow than the crosses. They do not fit with an agenda to make a ton of money. So then comes the cross breeders that are not willing to spend their life on it, they just want fast cash and something to lie for money about. That's why none of them measure up.
