  1. Still have one bed back on the right that is doing ok, just not keeping up with everyone else there. Just sprayed Diatomaceous earth on the leaves last night. Only have one click on the lights left then I'll be running no lights and they can flower when they want.
  2. Cool, I'll be adding some on top of the beds. Friend has an electric sprayer, pretty cool. He added some kelp and CaMg and things and some Diatomaceous earth. They do that regularly, this might be all I need.
  3. House Passes Major Federal Legalization Bill The House of Representatives passed the Blumenauer-McClintock-Norton-Lee amendment to the annual federal appropriations bills which prevents the Dept. of Justice from spending any money to enforce federal marijuana prohibition laws in states that have legal medical AND adult-use. With almost one in every four Americans now living in states that allow for the adult-use of marijuana, the importance of this legislation cannot be underestimated as it will stop almost all federal enforcement action against legal licensed cannabis businesses. Since 2014, Congress has passed annual spending bills that have included language protecting those who engage in the state licensed use, production, and dispensing of MEDICAL cannabis from most prosecutions by the Department of Justice. The Blumenauer-McClintock-Norton-Lee amendment expands these protections to also include activities specific to the production and sale of cannabis to adults in the eleven states that have LEGALIZED the plant for anyone age 21 or older. Passing with a very respectable 254 to 163, cannabis has been touted as a bipartisan issue. Maybe, but if it really is a bipartisan it has to be one of the most lopsided bipartisan issues passed in 2020 with 97% of the Democratic caucus (222 of 228) voting yes and only16% of the Republican caucus (31 of 188) voting yes. An almost identical amendment was passed by the House last year, but failed to be included in the Senate’s appropriation bill. With Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) still in control of the Senate, the same fate probably awaits it. But who knows? Senators like Cory Garnder (R-CO), who is in a tight re-election campaign and is probably a bigger booster of legalized cannabis then his Democratic opponent, former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, would definitely get a boost if the Senate passed it. With the Republicans in danger of losing the Senate, maybe they will pass it to help him get re-elected but I would advise against holding your breath. There was also a major success at the California Democratic Party's Executive Board meeting last weekend where a resolution was passed in favor of allowing cannabis lounges to operate independently with a licensing system similar to obtaining one to sell beer and wine at restaurants and taverns. For those who understand the licensing for alcohol, a licensing system similarto beer and wine for cannabis lounges would be a tremendous step in the right direction in making cannabis far more available then it currently is under the byzantine system currently in operation.
  4. Can you run some light? I put cheap led bulbs around my plants and extend the daylight a little in the morning and evening to keep them in Veg. Probably not what you want to do if you live next to a police station or something. But you can keep them in veg long as need be. Then you got the whole Winter to flower in. I'm just now weaning the plants off the light to start flower in a few weeks.
  5. So that can be a foliar spray? seen some that come with a duster. You put on the soil and water in or dust/spray leaves? Thanks
  6. My grow is off to a good start but I've seen this color thing on a few plants. Is that magnesium deficiency? What would I do for that? Epsom salt? Thanks

    Purple

    This really seems to help with inflammation I have from arthritis. Not too stony either but seems to add something to the mix. I drink 3 different bhangs. Old fashioned from grows before 2019 and regular which was last years crop and now purple. Don't have to label the jar, you can see which one is purple.
  8. Coming along... I've been cutting the led night light down little by little, so should be off of light in a few weeks. Hopefully that won't throw it right into flower. Last box on the right wasn't working, something going on there, those plants aren't drinking the kool-aid. That was one of the last boxes filled and might have to be rebuilt. I started giving those plants General Organics. I used to use that in pots, still have some left over. When the roots find those microbes they grow a lot more.
  9. Trying a new thing (for me) this year, netting. Hopefully It will hold things up so I don't have to do so much string tying.

    Purple

    I'm looking forward to some testing here. Might put some on a fast track for drying, just cut today.

    Purple

    My friend gave me some of his purple peanut butter breath maybe. Looks good. I was impressed by the amount of tricombs on the bottom of the bud.
  12. I probably brought them there, I put out food for the varmints outside to give them other options than the plants. They seemed to have moved on along with the grasshoppers for now. My dust combo seems to make the plants not so tasty. Caught the giant lumberjack rat. It would stand up and cut the main stalk about as high as it could reach and take the top half to go. Did that with two plants before I caught it. Thanks guys
  13. I was putting out some rat and mouse traps yesterday baited with peanut butter and when I came back a while later there were small reddish colored ants around them. Caught a mouse overnight so traps seems to work ok. I've seen them running around on boards and things in the greenhouse. I guess they don't hurt anything, they seem to leave the plants alone, guess that's the main thing. Anyone have ant horror stories I should be aware of? Thanks
  14. I took a picture of this plant that had all leaves eaten off. Usually death, but this gal is coming back, probably going to be a patio plant but still. Anyway if you look at the top right corner I captured a !$@$^@!! Grasshopper.
  15. Been fighting with mice, rats, and grasshoppers. Some plants were lost, some were half eaten, some doing good. I have more plants than I need and tomorrow is a cool day so I'm putting the big ones in pots to replace the ones that were eaten in the boxes. I dust the plants with dipel dust and flower 50-50. Flour for the grasshoppers and dipel to keep bud worms from hatching from the eggs laid by moths.
