    stoned ramblings, say or post anything you want.

    I had about a hundred colonies. I was hoping to grow them to about 300. Instead, varroa mites, tracheal mites, and africanized bees caused me to re-evaluate and change course. I couldn't make it work when those entered the picture.

    Another beekeeper? i used to keep bees before i lost my strength. At one time i had about a hundred colonies. A beehive is one of the funnest things in nature. The smells are incredible.

    A Continuous Evolutionary Grow

    Blackberry, day 49 veg. Defoliated two days ago. Slow grower. I might let her go another week before flowering.

    I'm on a new adventure. I just ordered some regular Harlequin seeds. I am hunting for males. I want to cross it with Ice. Among other possibilities. https://medicinemanseeds.com/collections/frontpage/products/harlequin-flower-seeds

    A Continuous Evolutionary Grow

    To be honest, i don't know how this is going to turn out. Maybe i should not have started with, "Don't be afraid to defoliate autos...." My reasoning behind defoliating the auto is that the plant had stopped growing. I only removed mature fan leaves from the branches. The branches are done growing. All of the branch tips end in flowers already. Defoliating exposes all of the flowers to light and air. The flowers are the only place where growth is occurring now. All of the flowers retain their own leaves, as well. I am only removing fan leaves from branches. So, i think it will turn out okay. But i don't know it. Time will tell. I think of it as removing old growth to help the new growth along.

    Don't be afraid to defoliate auto flowers. Lemon OG Haze Auto. 40 days since sprouting. Day 6 of flower. The leaves from the main stem were removed weeks ago. Today i removed mature leaves from the lower branches. The object is to expose all of the flowers to light and air. The pictures are all after-photos.

    Strawberry Kush x Mystery sativa. Day 14 of flowering. Stripping leaves forces buds to grow. In order to grow new leaves, the plant must lose its old leaves.

    Ice. Day 42 of flowering. This is the first plant i defoliated prior to flowering. I love what it did to her. I want to harvest fairly late. She's 7 - 9 week variety.

    The coolness of autos

    I have been growing photoperiod-dependent varieties on a continual harvest basis. I am just now discovering how fun it can be to slip an auto into the mix as an off-speed pitch, or to fill up some empty space.

    It the seed sinks....

    I like rapid rooters, except for hard to crack seeds. With paper towels its easier to check if something is happening.

    Cleaning a Vaporizer Whip

    I gave it a soak. A rinse. Another soak. Another rinse. Changed the alcohol in the bath. Another soak. Another rinse. Another soak. Another rinse. It's not like new. I don't know what soaking overnight would do to the tubing material. But it could still get some of the stubborn staining out. The whip is a lot better. Before the bath, the entire outside of the whip was sticky. I think it was bleeding through from the inside. I rinsed with hot tap water. It doesn't smell bad. It feels better. It looks better. Still needs to dry. But i think it is worth giving it a try. I should have taken a picture of the first alcohol bath I dumped. That would have shown how much gunk was removed.

    I have a disgusting old whip. Let's do an experiment.
