  1. All of those treatments should only be applied topically to the plant, and only should be used to treat a problem that already exists (not prophylactically). Don't treat for fungus if you don't already have fungus. I only apply treatments to my vegetative plants, and never to my flowering plants. You don't need to apply anything to the soil.
  2. Growing cannabis was one of the most fun and rewarding things I have ever done. I highly recommend it.
  3. I would recommend that one or both of you get medical/caregiver cards. Then it becomes 12 plants per patient rather than 12 plants per household.
  4. Prices will eventually come down. Arizona dispensaries regularly feature 1 oz deals for $100 or even less.
  5. Pornography: 43% morally acceptable and 55% morally wrong hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
  6. I'm interested in any in person event, whether it is Whitmore Lake or anywhere else. Maybe hash bash in Ann Arbor would be an event that would bring folks out. For now, I'd be glad to exchange seeds by U.S. Mail. I have Blueberry x White Rhino seeds that I would be willing to exchange for a powerful indica-dominant strain(s).
  7. You need to get over your aversion to throwing away a perfectly good clone. Everyone does it. It is part of life. But you need to remain under your plant count, and that often requires throwing away beautiful clones. Going out of your way to find someone to take your clone (or even buy it) is kind of foolish and potentially dangerous. Eventually, there will be open exchanges where you can bring your clones. But for now, I wouldn't try to find buyers for your extras. Stay focused on your own garden.
  8. You're welcome. I found that graph to be very informative too. There has to be a bottom, minimum price per pound, taking into consideration electricity, real-estate, nutrients, grow labor, trim labor, insurance, etc. But there is so much money going into "cannabis investments", that many operations will operate at a loss, just to establish market dominance. There is no way to compete with an operation that can operate at a loss for many years, simply because they have the capitalization. I think Michigan can get things right. Our individual count (12 plants) are as good as it gets,
  9. You may find this 6 minute Vice report on the over-saturation of the Oregon cannabis market to be informative:
  10. The folks who made money during the California gold rush were the ones who sold the pick axes, the maps, the denim jeans, etc. Very few miner '49ers got lucky and actually made money themselves. T-Pain's advice about opening a hydroponics store is very good advice. There is so much money going into grow businesses, dispensaries, cannabis stocks, etc. There will likely be overproduction (like in Oregon), with razor thin profit margins. I wouldn't try to compete, either as a grower or as an "investor". Look at niche markets that support the main grower market. A hydroponics store
  11. I like the taste. The spicy, nostril-burning essence is pleasant to me. It lets me know that the stuff is real.
  12. Yes. Agreed. Start very small and "introduce" it into your system. The first few times may be very powerful. Make no plans and be prepared to sleep for 10+ hours solid. The goal is to be able to take larger and larger amounts, without feeling those overwhelming effects that you felt the first few times. You want to build up a tolerance, so your body can take in a "medical" dose of oil. Currently, I can take a pretty large dose during the daytime and show no real signs of being "high" or impaired. No red eyes, no dry mouth, full energy and cognition, etc. The medicinal effects seem
  13. Yes. You want "cannabis oil", not CBD oil or hemp oil. It is sometimes called improperly called RSO (for Rick Simpson Oil), but no matter. You want an extract of the resin from high-THC cannabis flower that has been decarboxylated. Look for a small needle-less syringe containing 1 gram of a black, tar looking fluid. The key to properly ingesting the oil is to place a rice-sized piece on your tongue (better yet, under your tongue) and try to absorb as much as you can through your mucus membranes. That way the THC-9 goes directly to your bloodstream. Some of it will get swallowed, in w
  14. Looking at that photo of the room full of plants and lights... no way can the grower quickly spot pests and disease (which can manifest overnight) on every single plant. They are too jam-packed. I don't see any aisles.
  15. Cool. Whitmore Lake sounds good. A weekend day would be best for me. Let's make it a seed and clone exchange. I like to grow from seed (strong tap root) and to have the ability to keep males for breeding.
