    Veganic Growing?

    Only been to Austin once and only for about a week but I saw the bats flying out from under the bridge one evening... I think it was in March or April. Sooooo many bats. Crazy sight.

    Wow, never knew all of that about guano. Sad to think about people harvesting it without regards for the bats; I'd never have guessed they were that sensitive. Thanks for spreading awareness and doing the work you do toward sustainability!

    Veganic Growing?

    Sounds like a great mix - looking forward to giving this a go. Thanks for sharing! Some people are so secretive about their ingredients so I really appreciate you sharing the love.

    Veganic Growing?

    Yeah, I'm not a vegan either and I totally hear what you're saying. I've seen the topic of veganic growing thrown around with pretty much a similar reaction as water curing: some people swear by it, others think its BS, others straight up loathe it. I was curious as to how it effects yields and quality of the bud, if at all. I'm really inexperienced when it comes to growing so I think it would be too advanced for me either way, but I was curious if it was something I should aspire to try someday or if it would just yield poor results.

    Veganic Growing?

    This article on veganic marijuana was how I heard about it but it doesn't talk a lot about technique or result. I figured maybe someone here had tried it and could either sing its praises or tell me not to waste my time LOL

    Veganic Growing?

    Anyone here tried veganic growing? I think it's still a bit too advanced for me but I'm curious if the results are worth pursuing it.

    Has Anyone Here Tried Aquaponic Growing?

    Thanks, still great resources!

    Thanks, Hempyfan! If you find it, please share!

    Has Anyone Here Tried Aquaponic Growing?

    All good points that I hadn't fully considered. It would be cool to augment the process with the oxygenating plants though if you could make it work.

    Has Anyone Here Tried Aquaponic Growing?

    Yeah, it almost sounds therapeutic if you can find a rhythm to it!

    Has Anyone Here Tried Aquaponic Growing?

    Yeah, I found the (nearly) closed-system element appealing too. It could be a challenging juggling process depending on the type of fish, I guess, but as you mentioned with the tilapia, there are probably easier breeds to care for. Thanks!

    Has Anyone Here Tried Aquaponic Growing?

    Oddly, I think I remember seeing similar concepts explored in an EPCOT display when I was on vacation in Orlando in the '80s. There was a building called something like The Land and it showed different cultivation techniques. Obviously, they weren't using it to grow cannabis LOL
  13. A friend of mine forwarded me an article about growing cannabis using aquaponic methods. I consider myself ok at growing weed but terrible at keeping fish alive so I don't think I'd attempt it but I was curious if anyone else had tried it. If so, how did it work out for you? Was there any significant difference in quality or taste?

    Art Created Under the Influence of Weed

    Is there a preference on a certain drug when creating for any of the artists on here? I don't really travel far from weed and mushrooms. When I do mushrooms, sometimes I'll end up strumming a guitar happily but won't actually get anything done. I could see myself working much better with weed.
  15. I was pretty fascinated to learn recently that the French artist Moebius who made science fiction art was in fact open about his use of marijuana when creating art: "It was part of the culture at the time; I’ve used cannabis as a tool, in small doses. I was smoking natural weed neither treated, nor grown. An inhalation, even a light one connected me to a different perception of the world, of myself and my emotional baggage, words references. My relation to cannabis is singular: I was initiated in Mexico in 1956 by artists who gave me a road map: only use weed to transcend and never put your personal integrity in danger. I’ve never found myself in a situation of addiction. I dissociate myself from the profane way drug use permeated our western societies. To see friends light up a joint before breakfast was my wake-up call. I told myself: 'Damn, we’re out of the sacred!' Cannabis is a cruel master, powerful and dangerous, you have to approach it very carefully and a lot of mistrust. I actually ran into an artist at Blick while buying some paints and the subject of weed came up (I live in California so it's not that big of a stretch to imagine he might partake or at least not be against it). He was a fan of Moebius and told me to look the quote up. He told me that he uses weed to help him reduce his anxiety enough to feel more liberty when drawing. His site mostly shows sort of fantasy and occult art styles, which is cool though I prefer sci fi. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend other artists who smoke weed while creating? Or if there are any artists on this forum who do and how they think it helps them artistically?
