  1. I have wanted to try this, but I never coughed up the money for a FR bulb. I think you might see an effect without much FR light. 100W in a 1.5m x 1.5m area maybe? If you experiment with this, let us know the results. My suggestion, above, is based on a guess.
  2. Grobi — when you have major nute problems like this, those deficiency symptoms on the leaves that you have now will not disappear. The best that will happen is the new growth will not be affected. But I agree with Bigun's solution to the problem. I've never seen a change from healthy plants to this overnight — in soil.
  3. Good point. Overwatering can wash N right out of the soil.
  4. I think it's more Mg than N. The Cal/Mag products I've used all seem to have some N in them anyway, so a dose of that might do the trick. BTW, it looks like you've caught this early. Listen to Scone. You can probably just repot in a larger pot with an extra tablespoon of pulverized dolomite per gallon of soil, along with your other nutes, and all will be well
  5. A few years ago I grew an Esko freebie he called Blue Santa. One pheno had a stronger blueberry smell than blueberries themselves.
  6. This whole thread says there is a place for autos in some people's grows. It depends on what you want, the equipment you have and the amount of money you're willing to spend on equipment and the space you can devote. They open up growing to new people and new opportunities for some long-time growers. No one who prefers photoperiod plants would say that isn't true. What it boils down to is that if I find a keeper, I want to keep it. I can't do that with autos, but I can with photoperiod plants. I can't grow outside because my neighborhood is full of kids and there are no fences anywhere. End of story for me, in the situation I live in. If my situation changes, I might be thankful for autos.
  7. What brand of lights are these? I'm going to take a baby step toward LEDs by getting one I can grow a different (non-medicinal, totally legal) tropical tree under. I'll be interested to see your comments on it, as your first grow progresses — especially regarding difference in yield vs. reduced electricity use. 12 - 18 Kw/day/HID bulb can add up!
  8. So I won't have to depend on bringing in gummies, when I scrape up the money for the trip. I'll definitely be well-gummied for the flight. Believe me.
  9. I hate it when that happens. I've both: 1. ended up thinking a strain sucked, based on one plant, and 2. got a great pheno, and then let it go because I figured I'd get plenty of good phenos when I was able to grow out a bunch of girls.
  10. @PapalagAbout ten years back, when I was regularly being asked to pee in various cups to ensure I wasn't a cannabis-addled maniac, the word was that none of them worked. My brother used a Wizzinator, which is essentially a pouch with heated, artificial urine in it that you can dispense, as needed. It worked for him. They even have models with dicks, if you are taking a test where they are watching you do it. I think a Wizzinator would give me more peace of mind than some Miracle Detox Remedy. But you can buy some of the test sticks (look online — they're much cheaper than in stores) and test one of the Detox remedies. I bought about 10 of the test sticks, because I went the no ingesting reefer route. Each week I'd check. It took 4 solid weeks of abstaining from weed before the test sticks came out clear.
  11. Autos are fine if you want to roll the dice on getting decent phenos all the time. But now that I have the ability to keep my keepers, I don't see autos as being a direction I need to go.
  12. The fan I chose is both quiet and cheap. I never hear it unless I'm right next to it and there is no other ambient noise.
  13. I wouldn't say it's vigor was poor, it's just not a big plant. It's easy to grow.
  14. Now you can work on making that pile of charcoal, about 0.1 g at a time.
  15. Sounds great. When you reproduce Chocolate Cheese (Cheese x Cocoa Kush), I'll be in line. I have some Cheese x Chocolate Rain seeds from Esko. I should probably give them a try one of these days.
  16. I don't know if they're still available, but you can run "HPS Conversion" bulbs on an MH ballast. They're not as efficient, of course, as an HPS in an HPS ballast.
  17. Thanks for the input on Esko's God Bud keeper, @santero I purchased mine around 2014 or 2015. Can't say whether it's #1 or #2. I recently indulged in the purple pheno, which is similar, but has a distinctly "sour" taste and is not quite as smooth as the green pheno. For me, the green one is the keeper, but the purple one will be fully consumed, I'm sure. I'd also shave a little off the potency score, making it about an 8/10. On a side note regarding plant colors, it seems to me that green bud/purple leaf phenos are essentially like phenos that are all green, effect-wise. This is a good thing, IMO, as I always seem to prefer the green phenos when both green and purple (or red or whatever similar color) phenos are possible. I had a green bud/purple leaf Shackzilla in my last grow, which was as good or better than its all-green sister.
  18. Here's a somewhat brief (I intend it to be brief, here at the beginning. It could end up not so brief, who knows?) smoke report of the Jordan of the Islands strain, God Bud. I had two plants and two phenos, which looked very similar, except one was purple and the other was green. This is on the green pheno, which captured my heart. Big bonus: this is a strain that is still widely available in seed form. Scent: sweet and fruity with some hashy undertones. I'll give it a 10 on scent. It's definitely in "Esko territory" here. For those of you who arrived here after Esko's departure and haven't grown any of his wares, he concentrated on powerful and unusual scents and, to a lesser extent, flavors. Taste: The smoke is very smooth and easy on the lungs, but I can't say I picked up anything special, taste-wise. I'll leave the taste unrated. I never tried to vape it, because smoking it is such a wonderful experience. It never occurred to me to break out the Ghost for this strain, but I may before I finish it. Bud density - about 7.5. Nice and solid, but not like a rock. There is a little spring to it when squeezed. Effects: This stuff is pretty powerful, though I've had more powerful indicas. I never GREW a more powerful one. I'd give it an 8.5/10. This is also not a knock out, couch locker. It is very relaxing, but it has a little *mind spark* to it which makes it a lot of fun for people like me, who tend to like sativa doms a little more than indica doms. When used as a sleep aid, it won't work right away. It will take around half an hour for that mind spark to die down. Other issues — The main issue is that these are classically small indica plants. This isn't a problem unless you have a plant limit you are trying to stay under, because this strain is best grown as a SOG. I vegged it for 8 weeks and that wasn't enough to produce a large plant. Stretch is very low, less than 1x, maybe it's about 0.5x, and branches tend to run parallel to the main stem, so it's not a good candidate for SCROG. Do I like it? You bet — especially for an indica. Will I grow it again? Almost certainly, as I have the other 5 seeds from the pack and Esko found a pheno completely different from the two that I had, and I MUST try for that one. And even if I don't find it and end up with another pheno like this one, it will be well worth smoking.
  19. This is a weird strain. It is the only reefer I've ever ingested that FEELS MORE POWERFUL WHEN VAPED than smoked. I don't understand that at all. Regardless: Scent: (5 of 10) light lemon and pine. Taste (6 of 10): When vaped, the "green" flavor is quite prominent, mixed with some hashy tastes. Effect (smoked): 100% in the head. Very clear. Does not have the "electric" effect I experienced when I grew it in the past, but this was only one plant. No other phenos. It's been a long time since I tried an all-in-the-head variety. There is literally zero body buzz, and for most times I'm looking for a buzz, this ain't the one I'm looking for. When smoked, it is best in joints than in pipes. At first, I don't notice the buzz, then I get yakky and giddy. Very up. Perceived potency when smoked: 6 of 10 Now here's the weird part: Perceived potency when vaped: 8.5 of 10. (9 is for the most powerful stuff I've smoked, 10 is for that mythical bud that kills me.) I don't know why this is. I love vaping WN, but smoking it is neither here nor there. I intend to bring a sample into a local test lab and pay for the full monty of cannabinoids and terps so maybe I can speculate wrongly in the future. My other go-to sativa this grow is good ol' Shackzilla. 'Zilla feels like it's about 75% sativa effects, but it has the full spectrum of effects, including body buzz (though on the light side). I should have a sample of that analyzed, as well. I will grow WN again, but the main reason will be crossing it to a few strains, including @smilestyle's Lemon Thai F3 and @santero's Lemon Bubba. The best med use of this strain might be for depression, when the patient can't use something heavier, like when doing some types of work. It is an ultra-clear smoke
  20. Same here. I recently sampled a strain from a dispensary, called Goodnight Irene. Nice stuff, but it's got a heart-raciness to it. When I woke up in the wee hours and did a hit of it to go back to sleep, it didn't work out as planned.
  21. My hotel stays run the gamut from Roach Motel to 5 star. On rare occasions, a client wants to impress me and puts me up at a really nice place. In most locations I need to visit for work, the best I can ask for is a hotel built after 1990. (The motel I mentioned above was built during the Triassic.)
