  1. Indoors, Heri needs less veg time to stay more squat in structure, it's going to stretch anyway. Outdoors, Heri can grow into very large plants and it's branching structure can easily hold the weight of its dense flowers. Congratulations! 2g per watt is a very respectable harvest. Enjoy the frequent naps that may be in your immediate future. Heri can give some tokers that knockout high that she's known for... small hits!
  2. When California lawmakers drew up mandates for personal growing, they stated Cannabis sativa and made no mention of Cannabis indica or Cannabis ruderalis. People went absolutely crazy with "indica" plant counts while also growing their legal limit of sativas. It took the state a long time to understand what needed to be fixed in the wording of the law. A lot of court cases were lost by the state because of how lawmakers worded it. They created a loophole for growers that was exploited on a mass scale statewide, before lawmakers changed the wording in the law to include all cannabis subspecies. People that don't live in a cannabis world usually don't know what they're talking about when they're talking about cannabis! If any of you guys come across a clone that's got cotyledons on it, please take a pic of it and post it... I've never seen one in 40 years of growing cannabis and I believe that would be a sight to behold! Enjoy your day greenthumbs!
  3. Welcome to OpenGrow appleseed666. How's your Bubblegum coming along? That's a great classic strain... who's Bubblegum strain is it? Looking forward to seeing your grow journal!
  4. Welcome to OpenGrow FriendlyGrower. When did you say you were going to start a grow diary?! We like that kind of input around here!
  5. Hey phil, things are groovy! Like Sacred, I've only run crosses of KF and I do regret not getting any of the F4's when they were available. I saw a whole lot of purple coming from that generation! The purple is a co-dominant color, along with green, in the Killing Fields strain, so I believe it's possible to find that color again. To actually find a replica of that pheno two generations later is a bit of a stretch, however, I've grown plenty of plants that exhibited dominant traits found in strains from withing their lineage and not necessarily their parents. Many things are possible when you're talking genetics and plants. Soma's Lavender is a very special strain... and I miss her too! I'd like to run Lavender again... next time I'm keeping a clone of it! I've got two different strains going at the moment. Platinum Gorilla and Coso Kush. I grew Platinum Gorilla from a seed that I found in a sack of buds. Got a female from the one seed and can't wait to smoke that again! The Coso Kush is a very stony cross between Master Kush x (Cocoa Kush x NYCDiesel) and this pheno tastes like sweet lime kush... it's a really nice pheno and I'm glad I cloned it this time.
  6. Hey phil, good to see you. Color is a dominant trait in Killing Fields and should remain a dominant trait even as the strain is worked closer to an ibl. If you found it before, it's possible to find it again. I hope you find another deep purple pheno... I'm sure they're in there somewhere! Good luck to you!
  7. Yesterday I got quite a few PM's from concerned members about the new spam thread/posts made by Greyskull after his seven day "time out" was completed. I went to Greyskull's profile and saw a whole new slew of accusatory spam talking about "fake strains" and whatnot, same language he had been previously warned about and the same language that earned him a week long time out... that he obviously didn't learn from in any capacity. For these reasons, Greyskull has been banned from OpenGrow and his thread deleted. I felt that it was necessary to rid ourselves of a member who, not only, disregarded what was said to him by moderators regarding the forum rules, but has bullied some of our members for no apparent reason other than disagreeing with him. OpenGrow has seen it's fair share of drama and infighting over the years and we, as a community, strive to get past these embarrassing moments as quickly as possible. This type of behavior tends to make good, contributing members leave... some for good. It's sad when adults act like spoiled children on social media. It takes the fun out of participating in threads... and moderating too... I'd much rather participate in grow related conversations or help someone with their Q & A than be a babysitter on an adult grow site! Can we please get back to growing cannabis now?!
  8. Alright guys... I just noticed a few PM's about Greyskull's recent activity and am happy to let you all know that you won't be seeing him around here anymore. He had been warned by a few mods for his spamming this site with his nonsense, but did not heed our warnings and I felt that he wasn't going to stop, so he has been banned from OpenGrow. Those of you that know me know that I don't just ban problem members, communication is key, but when you blatantly go against our forum rules and/or disregard our warnings, action must be taken. I've been a member of OpenGrow for a long time and I like it here, I like the members here and I will work keep this place "asshole" free... even if it kills me! I'd like to thank the OpenGrow neighborhood watch for their continued support... your actions help us Mods more than you may realize. We don't see everything all the time and your efforts are very appreciated! I wish you all an enjoyable Sunday!
  9. It's prices like those that keep the black market strong... $130 for a quarter of an ounce is an insane amount to pay... it's not even that high here in Cali. California is about to raise it's cannabis tax at the beginning of the year, so I suppose we'll see what that will mean to consumers here. All bad, I'm sure. All these legal/medical states have hopes of abolishing the black market with their legal cannabis. Unfortunately, this will never happen when states become so greedy with cannabis taxes and hike prices up so high that it becomes unaffordable to those that need it most. In turn, the exact opposite happens every time, the black market becomes much stronger and offers affordable cannabis to anyone in need, for a much cheaper price. Better yet... get some seeds of something that sounds good to you, grow it, harvest it and see if that doesn't beat what you could have bought for $130 a quarter at the dispensary. I'm thankful I know how to grow my own... as long as I can, I will never have to buy it.
