  1. The MH blue's are ridiculous in their output. However the cost makes it just too expensive to relamp and keep meds affordable for my patients. MH can be used in veg and flower, hps can be used in veg or flower, either at ANY time. The difference will be in growth rate and structure. MH promotes compact bushy growth with smaller leaves and stems. HPS promotes lanky internode spacing with less bushy growth, but with bigger leaves and stems. Flowering is generally better with HPS because of the influence on leaf growth, which translates into bud growth. Flowering with an MH will generally pro
  2. That book is my bible. Forget all the others, that bunny muffin lays it out. "Don't stop breeding until you have ALL the traits stabilized" paraphrased, but that has stuck with me for years. I'm probably one of the few people on here that actually understand where MrD is coming from on this. You know the purple wreck that went around back in mid 09? Yea I brought that from cali, gave it to some "friends" who promised they wouldn't give it out, and 4 months later every "compassion club" in the area was selling my purple wreck. Sad thing was it wasn't even that good. Then there i
  3. Good point, but I don't care when you/we/I start, I'll use all the veg time I can.
  4. When you've taught 3000 people how to grow you will learn it DOES make a difference what you call it. You tell someone to flush with 3x the container volume in water, and another says to flush for 2 weeks, you wind up with a poor noob drowning his plants at the most critical time. Not something I want on my conscious. As for it not hurting anything to use more, true, but the mess it can make can be quite a pain. You could move plants to a bath tub, or some other drain, but moving plants is never a good idea imo (does a plant outdoors ever move 10 feet?). 1:1 is much more manageable in
  5. Fem seeds are a darn shame, and should never be used. If you really want more females, here is an article dutch passion released a few years before they began feminizing seeds, then quickly removed it after they started. http://www.1stmarijuanagrowerspage.com/how-to-improve-female-male-ratio-of-cannabis-plant.html
  6. If you want to know, you need to send it to a lab like this http://oregonfoodweb.com/ Anyone who acts like they know whats going on in their soil or compost without testing, is the same as these growers who say there meds are 20%thc because the seed bank says so, then when they get it tested they pout and blame the lab for their 10% readings. Its not cheap, but if you want to KNOW and not ASSUME, you need to get it tested by a qualified lab, period. As for beneficial's to add, stay away from anything with Trichoderma. Long story short, it will dominate your soil, which drops ph to
  7. I had a nice long rebuttal, but never mind, all I can do is laugh. See you at the finish.
  8. What you are describing is leaching, not flushing. This gets confused a lot. Leaching can be used to to speed up the ripening process, or to correct a nutrient/salt build up. IMO a good leach is the start of a good flush, but I disagree with amounts. It depends on the porosity of the soil. Heavy soils like Happy Frog or Ocean Forest, may require 3x (example: 1 gallon container, 3 gallons of water) the container size in water. Pro-mix BX/Sunshine #4/Light Warrior/Roots 707 are more like 1x the container size (example 1 gallon container, 1 gallon of water).
  9. A fellow at the MOCC Farmers Market had a nice Kandy Kush and I believe he had clones available.
  10. More like 5 solo cups Unless that's against the rules? I've had this type of competition for years with friends. Like LHB said, root issues happen quickly. I wouldn't even need a month of veg time, but I will to follow the rules. What about root pruning, go or no go?</p>
  11. I stopped using bat guanos and manure for these very reasons. Cow/Horse poop is loaded with anthrax, which has several aerobic strains. Remember the spinach fiasco a few years back? That was e.coli. Which is found in abundance in guano that has not been pasteurized. I have seen several pasteurized guanos that are safe to use however. That being said, it was more for MY safety rather than my PATIENTS, reason being is none of them consume RAW cannabis. Most cannabis reaches temps far high enough to kill bad pathogens. Like was said earlier, there are always risks. For instanc
  12. Niiiiiiiiice now I just need a cheap all mesh zippered work bag, *nudge*.
  13. Count me in, I may just do several methods. Thinking, Organic, Veganic, DWC, Aero, and Soil-less
  14. That 20% was not say the difference between a shwag sample testing 1% at one lab then 21% at another. It was some labs reading 20% and others reading 21%, a very small difference. At least that's how I read it.
  15. How long, and how many ways did you try and run it RLP? I gave Sour Kush a year, makes a great breeder, but no matter what I tried I still hated it lol. Now the black from BCBD took about 6 months to figure out, would have tossed it on first impressions.
