  1. The main vertical zipper for my grow tent is failing. Does anyone have ideas on how to deal with it. I was thinking of making curtains or drapes for the front. But the airflow will change. What's the best thing to do short of sewing new zippers onto the tent, or replacing the tent?
  2. Ha. When i wrote this i wasn't thinking clearly. I am growing this out again. Here is my veg tent. There are five one-gallon plants here. The one in the middle is Madberry. That is my next specimen plant. The other four are brothers or sisters to the one i just harvested. I am looking for males. When i noticed that the flowering time of the mystery plant was going to stretch to 12 or more weeks, i decided to find a male and mate it back to Strawberry Kush. The goal is to get children more like the mom. Hopefully shorten the flowering time. If i get males and females, i might also cross them with each other. The seeds would be from an F2 generation of the original cross. There is also a tiny plant in a starter pot. This is a clone of the Strawberry Kush that just went onto a 12/12 diet. It's an insurance plan against the possibility that all four of the seed makers are females. If that happens, i will grow out the clone, and search for more males.
  3. Vapor report. (I don't smoke, so this can't be a smoke report.) Strawberry Kush x Mystery sativa. Smell and taste. Really tough to nail down. I like it. The smell is interesting and complex. But describing it is difficult. I would say it smells like something citrusy. But it doesn't smell like a lemon or an orange or a grapefruit. It's more like some sort of essence of citrus that they all share. The taste -- I really couldn't taste much. There is something delicate there. The high. Interesting. Satisfying. Before trying any I was hoping that the mystery sativa side would have been some kind of haze. It's not. But It is definitely stimulating, mentally. The world got a little brighter when i first tried it last night. I was high on Master Kush at that point, and i felt my mind lift out of indican relaxation and into this more alert and aware state. I do have a feeling of well-being too. CBD? I have been using it all day today. I think i will grow this again when i run out.
  4. Harvest update. Strawberry Kush x Mystery Sativa. The final product weighs in at 40 grams. Not bad for 5 weeks veg in a 1 gallon pot. I still have to grind up a flower and test her in the vaporizer. I'll check back.
  5. Thanks. This was 13 weeks, though, and not 15. Still, the longest flowering time I've ever done.
  6. Strawberry Kush at day 54. I had planned to flower her after 56 days of veg. But tomorrow stormy weather comes. I think she can begin flowering after tonight. I have been pulling mature leaves from the branches since about day 36. I will leave the leaf canopy you see here on the plant during the first week or two of flowering. I want to see some stretching. This plant has good bones. If i can get more than two ounces of bud, plus some seeds, i will be happy. One or two branches will get pollinated after flowering starts (assuming i find a male).
  7. Given enough time, it would be fun to find ten landrace strains from a hundred years ago and work from there. Otherwise, my inclination would be to name ten classic strains. But which 10?
  8. In this thought experiment, are we immortal? Do we have an eternity to breed and develop what we're after? Or, do we have a finite number of grows in our lives?
  9. Strawberry Kush x Mystery Sativa. 129 days total. 90 days of flowers. Wet yield 240 grams.
  10. I'll look for that the next time i trim leaves.
  11. I'm with you on stem colors. Probably everyone is.
  12. Strawberry Kush -- the veg.
  13. First car owned was the '71 Chevy Chevelle SS. Web photo. I paid something like $950 in 1980 and sold it for about $1400 about two years later to a collector who bought it for the body.
  14. Strawberry Kush x Mystery Sativa. Day 73 of flowering. In the past week to ten days the flowers really filled out. Is it my imagination or do these trichomes look milky already? If so, i can probably cut back on the late-flowering feed to half strength for a week. Then flush. Then harvest a short time later. The hairs on the flowers don't seem to look ready yet. that's why i think this can go for another couple of weeks. Maybe even three. I would love to hear from sativa growers any suggestions on how to finish this. Not really sure what i am doing. Flying by the seat of my pants.
  15. Strawberry Kush after removing the leaves from the first five nodes of the stem. I am growing the plant nine nodes tall. I plan to veg for 8 weeks total. I think it was 28 days old in these photos.
  16. Nice looking plants. Good luck with the grow.
  17. Sounds like an exciting grow. How long do you plan to veg the plants before flowering them? Or, do you base it on the density of plants in the space?
  18. Master Kush harvest. Day 62 of flowering. A new milestone. My first harvest where the wet weight is north of three hundred grams. 379 to be exact. My best harvest to date is the last Tangie plant. That one worked out to be 56 grams. 2 ounces on the nose. Recently i took down an Ice plant that had been defoliated. The dry harvest for that plant turned out to be 48 grams. Wonder Woman just came in at 52 grams. And this morning i put the Lemon OG Haze auto in jars. 31 grams. This is my biggest harvest so far. Let's see what the dry weight reduces to.
  19. Lots of seeds on hand. I am always planting something i am out of. I grew Madberry this past fall. Harvested it around November. Used it up already. Madberry is not the best pain-relieving variety. This is because it does not have a heavy indica high. But it is a great strain for enjoyment. The head high is pleasant. It relaxes without locking me to the couch. Yet, there is a body component.
  20. Choosing the next seed to start.
  21. Nice. Very similar to my own setup. The one recommendation i have would be to to put a tub in the bottom of the tent. It's not necessary. But i am sometimes sloppy, and dirt washes from a pot, or there is some standing water. One of my lights is ViparSpectra. Can't beat them for their price. No issues.
