  1. I think I already answer this for you. The gradual decrease in the amount of light will trigger your plants to flower. Get rid of your supplemented lighting June 1st and your plants will be ready. If you are *really worried, you can start covering them up to put them in darkness 12 hours a day starting August 1st. In your location, if you're having trouble with bud structure, change your genetics.
  2. I may be wrong, but I don't think plants *need 12/12 to flower. It's the increase in the amount of darkness that triggers it. I have some start to flower outdoor in July https://www.timeanddate.com/sun/canada/cornwall (not my city) Mid July with 9hrs of darkness. That said, I have a Swazi that won't start flowering until September 1st at the earliest. So that's about 13/11.

    Someone could have swapped them out. I always compete with a buddy to see who grows the best cucumbers. Last year he was bragging and being all alpha about it, so I went over to his place when he was at work and swapped out his Cucumber plants with Cantaloupe plants. He was bummed when he saw them start coming out Round! I never told him. I'll do the same this year but I'll do Squash. lol
  4. When I built my raised beds, I loaded it up with logs first, then my soil mix. I have to add 6 inches of soil every year because the logs get eaten up by microbes. As the logs rot, they act as sponges reducing the need to water. It's called hugelkultur.
  5. With any soil, you have reamend every year. I'm not talking No Till here. Still, I've used No Till and it still wasn't where I wanted it to be. Reamending soil is quite easy. The main missing ingredients after a season are Nitrogen and Potassium. Get some 4-4-4 or 20-20-20, or any all purpose tomato fert is perfect. Sprinkle, and scratch it in.

    Blue Jag worked well for me. Heavy yields and a great high. (on special now) Sorry. I don't have bud pictures. Nirvana's Original Glue was amazing. Tight buds and hard hitting. (on special now)
  7. These were Boreal Cloud last year. I had to sex them before putting them out because they were regular. But small and heavy. Loved them. Blue Jag females are going in there this year. @ $100 for 100, they're hard to beat. These girls were huge producers last year so that'll be my main crop in a couple spots. Going for 200
  8. Fixed the video link. https://youtu.be/dvTnG_UN3ac https://www.borealseeds.com/videos/supersoil.mp4
  9. I use this. (from BorealSeeds.com) Drying room Humidity is 60-65% managed with a dehumidifier and a humidifier (swamp cooler). Drying room Temperature is about 70f. Chop branches and hang for 5-6 days. Lots of fans top and bottom, never blowing on the flower. Branches get trimmed and it's back into the drying room for another 7-10 days. So total drying time is about 2 weeks. (it's a few days less for wet trimmed bud.) Buds get clipped and into 1 gallon FDA Food safe curing containers. Pump comes on for 15 minutes every 24 hours. They stay in the curing containers for 3 full weeks. That's it. I like weed at 50-55%rh. More than that and it's hard to grind and roll. You can test your buds by rolling a joint and sparking it up. If it stays lit, you're good to go. If it doesn't stay lit, it needs a little more time drying/curing. Peace.

    EC ppm PH

    EC 2.5 for soil isn't bad but your plants already look healthy. Only increase it if they start looking hungry (pale green). PH should be 6.5-7 in soil. If you have well water, check it. Mine is 7 on the button. Whatever you do, don't use RO water. It has no minerals. As a rule of thumb, don't start messing with things mid grow if everything is going well. You can measure stuff, but that's it. Don't change what you've been doing. Have fun with your new toy.
  11. The most important thing is digging a good hole. It doesn't have to be deep at all. 24 inches at the plant, and 12 inches as wide as you can get it. You can help things along by digging your holes now and adding carbs like raw sugar (Sugar In The Raw, aka Turbinado Sugar available at your grocery store) OR plain Large Flake Oatmeal for the microbes to feed on. Top with a piece of cardboard from a box to attract worms. Cover that with straw if you can get your hands on it (not hay!). If you do it now, you'll have a nice earthy bed in the spring. Here's my recipe for my soil. Simple, but it works. You can easily use Ocean Forest soil for this and scale up the recipe if you need more soil. Use the hot/bloom mix in the bottom of the hole, then the "normal" mix to fill and plant. Here's mine from BorealSeeds.com from last year. I just covered it with a tarp and kept it moist for 4-5 weeks to cook.
  12. No worries. It's a valid question that can help people playing around with growing during lockdown.
  13. Boreal Freak. She's a beauty and in the hopper. Rubbing the stem releases a mouth watering scent. Super fun to grow and super stealthy. I've had people (and other growers) stand right next to it and they had no idea. lol
  14. We reship all the time. This year we reshipped at least 3 dozen packages. Everything goes out Expedited with Tracking so seeds should arrive in 7-10 days in the US and 15 days in the EU. 5 days in Canada, but for some strange reason, shipping is almost double to a destination in Canada (we're in Canada) then it is for us to ship to the US. 99.9% of the time, packages make their way to '"Your item has been processed through our sort facility in ISC NEW YORK NY(USPS) at TIME on DATE."' and never comes out of it. Shit just gets lost or stolen by contract workers (I was told by an employee at jfk isc). We sell cheap, so re-shipping wipes out our profit, but we can still resend without losing money. Our customers always come back, so it's worth it. We can do this because we only sell strains we breed (borealseeds). Companies like HD are seed banks have to pay the breeders for the seeds they sell. Re-sipping for them costs them money and not many banks will reship if they lose money. If they do re-ship, it's regular mail and in the spring when money is rolling in for them. From June to December, they're more likely to not resend. Having said that, there are some who ALWAYS reship intercepted seeds. Just take a picture of the package/letter with the customs "green tape", or the letter from Canada Post and they should reship. It's just good business. Cheers and stay covid safe.
