  1. Very nice. Now here's the deal; Your plants are doing just right. Don't change anything and ride it out. You have them right where you want them.
  2. Whatever you are growing in, I find it beneficial to have nutrients that I can mix with water and check with a meter so I can keep track and not overfeed. One kind/brand that has a system and a feeding schedule. That way you can be very consistent over many grows and make small fine tuning adjustments. Take notes. Settle on one and go with it for a few grows (at least).
  3. The timer switch got slid over to constant on by accident. This has happened a few times over the years. I decided to put duct tape over the switch so it can't get bumped over to the non timed side.
  4. First, get out your magnifying glass and look for mites. There is a little tip burn. Could be too much nutes. Do you use a meter for your nutes?
  5. I think so. They are doing great now.
  6. The legislators can eliminate caregivers 'on paper'. I don't think that would be favorable politically at this point. Even if they did, caregivers are part of the Michigan landscape now and you can't take them out of the picture by amendment. All the 'rules' can do is alienate them from the rules at this point. They are well established in the communities and they are not law enforcements problem anymore, law enforcement will tell you that. That changes everything. Where I live, busting growers is a very low priority these days. It's like busting people for setting off fireworks. You can call 911 but good luck seeing an officer any time soon. They have better things to do. The voters have spoken and they say that marijuana isn't the threat it has been made out to be for so long. Even the feds are more intent on setting things right than putting people in prison for marijuana.
  7. Chairman Sends Marijuana Email To NORML Posted by CN Staff on August 13, 2019 at 08:33:25 PT By Tom Angell, Contributor Source: Forbes Washington, D.C. -- Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), who last month filed legislation to remove marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act and begin repairing the harms of prohibition enforcement, asked the advocacy group's supporters to write their own members of Congress in support of his bill, the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment, and Expungement (MORE) Act. "America has a moral responsibility to pass my legislation to end the prohibition of marijuana and take on the oppression at the heart of the War on Drugs," Nadler wrote. "I’m proud to work with NORML to create a more just national marijuana policy." The bill will "once and for all end the destructive policy of federal marijuana prohibition in America" and "remedy the widespread inequities and injustice this policy has brought upon tens of millions of Americans," the chairman told the legalization group's members. Beyond descheduling cannabis, the MORE Act would create processes for the expungement and resentencing of prior convictions and prevent government agencies from blocking access to federal benefits or impeding citizenship status for immigrants due to marijuana use. Additionally, it would levy a five percent federal tax on cannabis sales, with some revenue earmarked for job training and legal aid programs for people impacted by prohibition enforcement as well as loans for small marijuana businesses owned by socially and economically disadvantaged people. Its introduction comes amidst what observers are saying is the most marijuana-friendly Congress in history. Less than eight months into the two-year session, dozens of cannabis proposals have been filed, seven hearings have been held on the issue and legislation to increase marijuana businesses' access to banking services has cleared a key committee. "With Chairman Nadler's leadership, we believe that the MORE act will likely be the first bill to end federal marijuana criminalization ever to pass in a chamber of Congress," NORML Political Director Justin Strekal said in an interview. "Representative democracy is not a spectator sport. Now is the time for the majority of Americans who support legalization to demand reform from their legislators, just as Mr. Nadler's message to our members indicated." Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), a 2020 presidential candidate, filed a companion version of Nadler's bill in the Senate. "In 1977, I cast my first vote as a freshman member of the State Assembly to decriminalize marijuana in my home state of New York," the chairman wrote to NORML's supporters. "Since then, I have been committed to ending the criminalization of marijuana. The criminalization of marijuana is a mistake and caused grave harm, disproportionately to those who are poor or people of color, and we must take action." Nadler's bill was endorsed by a group of justice-focused organizations such as ACLU and NAACP in a letter to House leaders earlier this month. "Criminal justice involvement deprives individuals from low-income communities of color equal access to economic opportunity," the groups wrote. "Incarceration robs families and communities of breadwinners and workers. Thus, any marijuana reform bill that moves forward in Congress must first address criminal justice reform and repair the damage caused by the war on drugs in low-income communities of color." Calling the proposal an important step "to bolster communities ravaged by the war on drugs," the groups are pushing congressional leadership to see that it is "swiftly marked up and immediately scheduled for floor consideration" following the August recess. "The hysteria around marijuana is starting to lift as states across the country lead the way in reforming their marijuana laws. It is time for the federal government to follow suit," Nadler wrote in the new message to NORML's list. "Marijuana is a public health and personal freedom issue, not a criminal one. We can no longer afford the moral or financial costs of the War on Drugs." The New York congressman sent a separate email to his own campaign list last month asking his supporters to sign a petition backing his cannabis bill. Also last month, a Judiciary subcommittee held a hearing on marijuana prohibition at which members of both parties express broad support for ending or scaling back federal prohibition, with disagreement mostly focusing on the details or competing proposals to do so.

  8. Yes there is. All the dispensaries are integrated with the State on this. Your card number is entered into the system with how much you bought. They total the amount you bought at all dispensaries and you can't go over 10 ounces in 30 days.
  9. Heard the same. Was wondering what was up with 'finicky'. Some folks I know that grow WW say it's great for a beginner.
  10. That would cause stress. You don't want that unless it's absolutely necessary. Figure out a way to get more air movement. Open up the tent. What did you do before when it was hot? Why is it hotter now?
  11. One thing I would add to the above video is to scrape some of the outer stem off the lower one inch of the stem. Helps the roots to form there.
  12. Same as the rest like that. $200 for stuff that no one I know likes much. The decent stuff is up from that. $300. As compared with the dispensaries selling for caregivers letting decent stuff go for $150. Some caregivers are happy the prices at the dispensaries are going up. Most of us believe our time and expertise is worth $200 an ounce when we succeed with our crops and grow something great.
  13. So they sue, win, and the result is a memo that doesn't get enforced. That must have hurt their feelings. So they threw money at it and own a dispensary with not much business anymore. How's that working? We are right back at the war between the caregivers and big money. It's been nice working together with the dispensaries for a while. Learned to like dispensaries. They will start again with the 'untested' BS soon. Cutting down caregivers. They fight dirty.
  14. It did on paper. But when I waded out into the real world of dispensaries and dispensary owners I found that what is on paper isn't applying in the way we have been programmed to think. Basically, no one is enforcing the state rules. First, the dispensaries realized it. They just kept buying from caregivers and kept some state supply on the shelves too. Then the big state grows realized it. So they went with plan B, buy the stores and control what's on the shelves that way. Even the Canada grows are buying Michigan dispensaries. So the hunt is on for dispensaries that haven't sold out to the rapidly integrating large grows. They are still opening up here and there. There are still large investors with state grows, like Calvin Johnson, who have yet to buy a dispensary. So the whole situation is fluid. Lots of money making ideas out there. People realizing that if they pay the locals and the state, open a dispensary, buy from caregivers, make a name for themselves, then sell the store to the highest bidder, they just made a fortune. This is all revolving around the fact that has been there since the beginning that no one can compete with caregiver grows. There's little enticement for law enforcement to get involved now since legalization and the general acceptance of cannabis with the public has made it less profitable and just a general hassle to make a major convictions like they used to be able to. Everyone has realized that cannabis is less dangerous than cigs and beer. So it's just a money game now. If the big grows could just sue the dispensaries that would have happened but they decided to buy them instead.
  15. Here the deal with this type of stuff; It's mostly just sugars like molasses. Since it's just a simple sugar wouldn't you think that a good fertilizer would have the correct amount already? Why would any decent formulation need more sugar? Try to not be sucked into the marketing for these gimmicks. It's throwing money away and making your feeding schedule more complicated. I make cannabis oil. One of the things I have to remove to make a great cannabis oil is plant sugars. They are useless in the mix and just make vaping the oil harsh. It doesn't make any sense to put sugar on a plant over and above what good nutes supply. It's a common sense issue.
  16. So caregivers have a clear path to market right now. No testing. No fees. Just find a dispensary that hasn't been bought out by a large commercial growing interest and sell them your overages. If you find one let us know. The best deals will be found there. No manufactured monopoly and low overhead produced cannabis.
  17. Good to know. Thanks. I get it in HPS room too. Never on the LEDs.
  18. Just got some more specific information on why the caregiver product isn't at the dispensaries anymore. The big grows are buying the dispensaries. Specific to confirm; High Life Farms bought Dispo. All the dispensaries are being bought. The grows realized they had to integrate and kick out the caregivers because they can't compete in a fair market. Nothing was stopping the dispensaries from buying from caregivers directly. Wasn't being enforced. So they had to buy the dispensaries to keep their monopoly pricing. I heard this from a dispensary owner.
  19. Did you get much foxtailing on your LED grow?
  20. I'm still not positive it was the 24/7. Could be too much lighting. Some kind of stress though.
  21. I know how you roll. What you post means exactly.... nothing. Totally lost it. You are on ignore forever now.
  22. Same as in this article. Caused by light stress just like the say. Textbook example of foxtail caused by light stress. https://www.growweedeasy.com/foxtails
  23. It's foxtailing. You just don't know what you are looking at. Maybe it's the picture quality.
  24. It is foxtailing. Brought on by stress. Not heat stress though. It's only 80 and I have plenty of air moving. It's stress from messing up and running the lights 24 7 for two weeks and then switching to 12/12. This strain didn't like that at all. Went into foxtail mode because of it.
