  1. my assessment of the BLG southeast Asian cure is disappointing. it was only marginally better than a typical 2-3 mth cure. really smoother taste though and the complexity of the taste and aroma changed as well for the better imho but nothing to compare it too yet. have not cured the last batch that long= initially 45 DAYS though.


  2. The Staten Island Chem is LOOSE! After a lot of back and forth, I got Stoney to agree to a limited release of the Staten Island Chem x Sour Diesel. If you've been getting these newsletters for a while you've probably heard me mention the Staten Island Chem. I'm not going to tell the whole story because I'll probably f*** it up, but it involves the old New York mob and some guys sent to collect a debt, and the clone was a byproduct of the "collections" process (early 90's if I remember correctly). It was always referred to as a "Chem"  and has been closely held ever since. One of the guys from the Chem crew saw the plant and confirmed that it was NOT a chem so it was sent in for Phyllos testing. It turns out that the Staten Island Chem is a PRECURSOR to the Chem (a parent or grandparent, most likely) and is probably closely related to many of the top strains from the last 30 years (the Chems, OG's, Bubbas, Sour Diesels...) This is a VERY COOL strain just because of it's lineage but if that's not enough, it's also the GASSIEST strain either Stoney or myself have ever had.

    Sooooo... you've got one of the coolest and gassiest strains EVER crossed Stoney's Sour Diesel male. If this cross doesn't arouse a primal need I just don't know what will.

    Stoney didn't really want to release this cross - he is very possessive over the Staten Island Chem but I persuaded him that the cannabis world needed to try it and he shouldn't horde it all to himself. He's still not entirely convinced but he agreed to let me drop 50 packs to you fine folks. I can assure you that both Stoney and I will be digging through these crosses for a killer keeper or two ourselves.

    I'm dubbing this cross the Staten Island Diesel and all proceeds are going towards getting me licensed to cultivate, make seeds, and have a nursery in the State of Oklahoma. Packs are $200/10 regular seeds+ $10 shipping and come with two freebie half-packs from the Sour Diesel line.

    So, the current trend continues to be folks claiming have legit old cultivars of the past. Only most of these folks who have held these cultivars supposedly for years are know to like to make coin via cannabis be it seeds, clones, buds etc. Yet, until they make these announcements seems nobody knows they exist except for them and maybe 1-3 more people max lol.

    Then because they are so generous to the community they will let us get in on their treasure horded since who knows when and treasure Maybe not. which is how i see it and i'm saying these folks are lying and it's happening with folks we used to trust.

    i don't trust them anymore. all the Todd McCORMICK and sam the RAT man, Jorge C's fuckery and others who cooperated with LEO we never would have guessed = Neville wtf...

    Octopots are the bomb, I am pretty sure I have seen folks use coco with them.

    For me it comes down to ability to break down quickly in case of emergency. Cost of water and space needed to make it worth using. 
    Tent is 4’x 4’ 6’11” tall

    only possible in basement if water temps can stay 65-70 max. 
    please tell me the water temp range for octopots. Thx 

    with Hempy, break down can’t be easier than a 2/3 gal bucket and save plants to hide as needed. Even if I need to prune them severely. 
     

    larf/micro popcorn before and after finger trim. 
    Also trying to clean stuff up to get ready for 420. Already have my drop funds at the ready. 

    i will never buy these raw papers again. They keep going out and they don’t taste good and diminish the taste of the weed smdh. 

    300 1/4 for $5 pack of tips 1$ 1/2 papers 2$?? So, pissed. Now, I’m just going to go online and order my orange juicy jays like I should have done already.

    Buddy told me and I was like the price is right. He never mentioned anything negative about them so I guess he likes them. I’m gonna save the 298 papers left and sell to him for 3/4$ Smdh. I’m gonna put up with the 1/2 until my orange legit papers get here. Let me do that now frfr. 
     

    i didn’t like smoking the glass tip when rolled up like it should be frankly and u have to dig weed out of the tip end when done. 
    i like my method used as a joint holder much better and no pain in the ass rolling either. Bing Bong ha !

  4. Ok, calendar check today 

    Basement bitches 

    Jan 7, flower onset.

    Chop date Approx March 11-17th @9 weeks plus by March 11th.

    So next nutes will be reduced to 1 Tbl/3 ltr’s water Approx. For next 12 days then only molasses water the last 9 days.

    None of the basement BLG’s are fed daily = every other day, up to 3 days based on size of the pots. 
     

    Bean baby : pollinated January 16, 2022 

    chop Approx March 27th at 10 weeks after pollination. 
     

    Note: lights schedule Approx 10-14 so those chop estimates should be golden.

  5. I feel you and can relate. I’m fine with the older mediums used before but my level up key = more aeration, particularly in soils/peat moss mediums. 
     

    coco is so much more wonderful with less effort and headaches/fluctuations usually.?

    only hydro special stuff I would consider at this point would be octopots/ auto pots …Hempy is by default preferred since no vacations/need to have a jackass watch them just to be frustrated lol. Yet, folks keep doing it ha.

    I think it looks really good in there. Unless I get PM or bud rot, it is all useable IMO.

    Yup, the tent is on point and will just get better now. I’m not even going to mention the possible negatives because I know how to prevent both.

  7. Just thought to myself how many folks back in the day would trash their less than optimally grown plants smdh. Most folks told them it was a big mistake not to keep it, if only to make butter … 

    anyway here’s my first ever defoliation of plants that grew like these. LEDs played a role most def in shaping the plants umbrella like canopy. 
     

    yes, pics are in reverse with defoliated plants 1st. And how the jungle looked before,

    Anything is better than nothing!

    An exhaust fan is a must at all stages in a tent.. humidity on the walls like you say is no good news..

    Focus on humidity and temps and your plants will thank you ;)

    Of course that’s usually on point. But the subtle difference I noticed just by opening the tent later, opened my eyes to very happy plants. They loved the xtra humidity even though I made sure to open the tent to clear out the xtra humidity after a while.

    i don’t even know the temps as I just go by the comfort zone feel and heat over the canopy etc. 

    dude it’s been a pita to find temperature and humidity combos that are both accurate and economical.
     

    Older stuff that fit that bill don’t seem to exist now. 
    been liking at least 4 yrs now smdh. It’s frustrating reading all the crappy product reviews. 

    75% of recommendations from others have those crappy reviews. Like the growmie stumbled over a legit unit, while most are trash! 
     

    Ok, so pics of the sad basement girls are closeups mainly. Just thinking of how bad ass they would be if they had higher area temp’s.
     

    So, somewhere between mid April to early may should be the temp sweet spot for basement grows. Then I only use a big oscillating fan and one small fan blowing up at the bare 600 hps bulb. 

    pics were slightly adjusted for shadows and brightness basically.

  9. Made Valentine’s Day pre drip drop gear grab

    Sour Applez = Apple Fritters x Sour Apple ; Sour Apple = Original Diesel x C99 

    Princess Pink = C99 x Gurl Don’t Play (red velvet cut pheno of ken’s grand daddy purple)

    Unicorn Poop BX F3 : w/ permission worked/selected by the bakery genetics nate the ninja! 
    GMO x Sophisticated Lady (ghost OG x grateful  breath)

    Expect some no brainer combos in the future imho if time and circumstance permit. Yet, they haven’t been done before, so stay tuned.

    2022 hit list of known and unknowns will hopefully all be in the vault by mid 2023. 
     

    AKbean Brains = 2/3 strains 

    Pure Kush S1’s

    seed heaven = unfinished budness 

    420 drop and Black Friday sale  = the bakery genetics 

    kendogsmoke 

    hempdepot = unfinished budness

    Inkognyto 

    this post allows me to stay on track and focussed. 
     

    already have the attitude of ignoring mucho cool gear I see because of all the variety that’s in the vault which isn’t too old yet. 
    I don’t want or need them all !

  10. Micro micro popcorn last plant from the green fiasco 38g’s jarred. 
     

    all others jarred are in the 1st week of burping. Then will burp every other day for 8 days, then every 4 days for the last two weeks before no more burping but checks every couple weeks.  The above schedule might be adjusted as needed. 
     

    the bean mother is pregnant and she will be allowed to go as long as needed even unto death ! She would be much further along in proper temps. 
     

    her sisters would have nice size buds by now instead of mini flowers. They are all going purple except one stubborn one with a couple leaves purple. 
     

    just counting on the tent to give me bigger flowers than the basement sisters. I expect them to be shooting hairs pretty soon. 
     

    i have noticed humidity on the tent walls if I wait awhile before opening it. Opening the tent and the plants seem to like it. So, now I wait a couple hours to let them get their humidity and I also close the tent with approx 4 hrs before lights out. 
     

    i will not be doing this practice once buds start to develop. I’m already thinking to use the exhaust fan after they stretch. Then turn the lights up the rest of the way. 
    exhaust fan on its own makes it cool in the tent not hooked to a filter.

    I doubt if I will need the filter cause BLG’s funk doesn’t smell like weed when it escapes. More like overripe fruit with an unknown subtle good type of funk.? it’s still brand new so when I do have that funky stuff I’ll be ready. 

    Don’t lol @oldschoolsg at this larf and yes, it’s sad but will be better than nada. The former micro buds from the No.1 pheno are better and funkier too.

  11. @oldschoolsg aloha bro his the sad looking plants in the tent tonight. Seems I have the timer adjustment correct. 
     

    Would u defoliate and if so in what manner. These are umbrella’s not the typical structure we lollipop. 
    the seed versions didn’t need to be lollipoped, as all as u can see back in the thread. They were left untouched and grew perfectly. 
     

    anybody else defoliate their umbrella style bushes ?

  12. @Scone_Of_Ark

    it’s a house but the owner knows exactly what he’s doing = not by accident. So, unless a get a lease offer out of the blue I’m leaving. 
     

    I’m going to check the gas and electric bill to determine if I can get a loan to kill it. Then pay the loan back slowly. Real slow because growing isn’t likely going to be possible. If that changes I’ll grow to try and catch up on all the old utilities bills.


  13. @oldschoolsg here are more sad looking plants for ur perusal lol. 
    considering what I see in the tent dude I almost lol at ur comment. 

     

    when my plants suck I’m the first to say so as usual. Yet, all the BLG girls in the tent look good maybe u have too much smoke in your eyes idk. Ha 

    the other two boys were trimmed off the vine and placed in the fridge in a salad container for later consumption. 
     

    the last two are awaiting transport that should arrive this Monday. So, if this lady keeps them live long enough to collect pollen and chuck some on her warriors tonic fems to make free  seeds then I’ll be grateful.  Plus she mind find a cbd influenced plant that works well but different from the mother. 
     

    the boys get a 9w led house light to stay alive until they are rescued.

  14. Ok drops coming up are Valentine’s Day and 420 to follow. 
    i was going to score probably 6-8 packs between both drops of shit I really wanted to be in the vault to work with. Now, that’s up in the air. 
    No telling when the bakery genetics will no longer put out certain strains. The flip side is some strains stick around for a couple years 2/3 avg. which gives me a chance to get them and already seen the goods grown by testers/followers. 
     

    i considered doing a seed auction of my old gear to raise funds. Yet, decided it wasn’t a good idea for a couple major reasons = unknown germ rates for each strain and therefor price setting would be torture.
     

    As well as the folks who were able to germ etc would and could make the coin I was slated to make and I’m not even talking about new creations they could do, I’m just talking about fire reproductions ! 
     

    if I get back to this Grow thing in a good way and know my health is not going to end well I had already planned a multiple Comrade giveaway. Preseve the genetics, make new stuff and sell as well, whatever  the recipients choose to do with them other than hoard and not share in some capacity.

  15. So, end of March is my exit date. 
    the big snafu is because I have an unpaid outstanding utility bill I can’t get utilities in my name without paying off the old bill. 

    ironically this year I could/would  have payed off gas and electric and the other water bill next year by offering flower 200/zip. 
    so, I’m going to see if they will assist with the past due bill. If it were a current bill the help would be by default. 

    I’m also going to check the exact amount of of both bills and if has and electric will clear my record to get it put in my name. If they say yes… I might be able to get a loan. 
    at least the lender trusts me to keep my word. He loaned me veterinary money to save my dog karma. He pulled me up and said “ name, nobody has ever paid me this much money back before. His sister paid for a different dog and I paid her back in full. Her brother told me to stop paying him… I didn’t have much left to go but he didn’t care anyway. 
     

    another option I’m shooting for is to deal with a pvt owner and make the same deal I have = utilities included with the rent. I’ve got a documented record of zero issues for a little over 8 yrs now. 
     

    next, paper work for dog to be an assistance animal will be started with a call to my shrink and details from webpage to complete the official work up so to speak. 
     

    miracle solution is to allow me to rent his family old house cause he mom had to move…  I would then be an official tenant it he would have to pass the housing inspection for it to go through. 
    That would be my fantasy scenario because it means I would only get inspected two times a year at most. = run two flower areas 1100 watts light divided between 500 digital main light and 600 hps. An easy pound would then be possible. Boss the plane, the plane boss lol. 

    so, without rent with utilities included in a new place, I am screwed. 
     

    cats will have to go to the shelter. Mom spayed and two daughters spayed appt this month. I’m not going to leave this neighborhood and just let them go without someone responsible to care for them. Hell, I already know how to make outdoor cat shelter on the cheap via YouTube videos. Oh well … 

     

    lastly push comes to shove = I buy a tent and two person sleeping  bags cause sweetie pie isn’t going to want to sleep in her own bag,? And body heat for the win. Ha  Safe location would be only concern and then find where to shower and wash clothes.  Ironically washer and dryer would be in storage at that point. 
     

    might be forced to sell some knives but even ti planned to do that. They were going to fund a scooter I could buy. If I sell to pay utility bill my record is clean but no way to then get the scooter without starting from zero to raise cash. Not being able to raise funds by flower offering is a huge detractor in my former/current situation. 
     

    i think I covered most if not all. Now, gotta do the dog assistance stuff now. Mainly because I have seen or will see a suitable place but they say no dogs/pets ! assistance dog isn’t considered a pet nor can a landlord charge additional security deposit because of the animal…. 
    only can say no if the dog is threatening towards others = never my dog or a severe hardship would be placed on the owner/land lord approx. wording

  16. Ok, so this past Monday email basically said my lease isn’t being renewed ! No, I’m not being evicted , no, I don’t know why and no this far my attempt to speak to the owner directly hasn’t happened. I made the request two days ago.

    i haven’t had heat since Approx 1week of Dec 21’ approx 98% of the time. Furnace diagnostic pointed to issues and when checked all were legit !!!

    it worked for 5 days straight after dude bought in a furnace hit man but then went back to shit. 
    will come on but will not ignite flame or will do so and after awhile  go out and just blow cold air. Which has been the ongoing over a month now. 

    fast forward and a step back = property mgr says she didn’t know about the heat cause it wasn’t her Dept/area. I guess she’s the new type that doesn’t realize all ou issues fall under her watch etc .

    so, she says she will look into it. Now, previously the maintenance dude gave the owner a choice to start switching out components or get a new furnace. I was sent a text advising me someone would contact me after the owner dealt with the issue/made a decision. 
     

    well, the next and only contact I got was the lease notice complete with a get the fuk out check list to deal with smdh!

    then a couple days ago Maintence dude called and said they were trying to install a new unit. But snafu occurred and it would be done the following day. Which was yesterday but they couldn’t do it because maintenance dude didn’t take a photo of what they had to deal with nor tell them they had to move out a washer and dryer to even get to the furnace to remove it. So, he has my number and he/maintenance dude will call once they choose the new installation day. 
     

    i was able to request and get a quick emergency inspection and she came yesterday before any furnace fix could occur. I did it to document the situation which they had no idea was happening. Also to maybe get a reduction in my rent I had to pay not having any heat for almost 2mths…

    So, inspector will contact them to have them fix the issue in a certain time frame, if they come back after to check and it’s not done the violation will send the case into abatement = owner won’t get his bulk of the rent even though I as the tenant are still required to pay my portion. Weird but… then if not resolved they will have me leave.

    so, leaving means I need a move out voucher which has already been issued quickly. I have appt to pick it up and will get a ride there and take the bus home.

  17. Not much but … 

    those are the type of roots I’ve been working towards, so the formula now can be repeated. 
    those are the pots of the 2 Folsom Prison Blues male after chop. 
     

    so, coco roots is why I’m using as my go too medium for now. I saw what was possible and my own trial coco plant’s roots made me a believer.

    Back then never imagined a more than decade would pass before I could get back to dealing with coco. 

    as you see putting them in pots instead of standard plant saucers allow the plant to keep going.  If my situation were different all the bigger ones would be transplanted into 7-10 gal pots.

    Oh, the dreams of a stoner. Put those chicks in the ground and I could duplicate amazing outdoor as well. will look for outdoor if I finally get a scooter/motorcycle listed or an electric bike. The rub is my financing plan has been curtailed by having to stop. iiwii
