    Root-Stim in Seed Starter Mix

    ProMix Stim-Root
  2. Hi. Can put Root-Stim in my seed starter mix (peat + perlite)? or is that a bad idea?

    Swamp Grow 3

    I'm going crazy to pop seeds and start growing, but it's a month early. So I started growing lettuce. lol

    Exhaust fan, intake and carbon filter

    Thanks. I'll give it a shot. 30x30 Window for light. 14 days? That's a long dry. I plan on exchanging air at noon when RH is lowest (50%, but 75% in Oct.). Example city for my source: https://ottawa.weath...ty-monthly.html

    Natural bug killer product

    My dad had the largest natural Strawberry patch I've ever seen. But it took him 4 years to get it. Year one: Plant. Year two: Bugs start showing up and eat berries. Year three: Patch all but decimated, but new bugs attracted to bad bugs move in. Year four: All bad bugs gone. Patch recovered. Year five: Bad bugs check in, but don't check out. Resident good bugs eat them all. It would be an expensive weed experiment.

    lol. My neighbors are raccoons and skunks (really). Last year I had a Revolver that dwarfed so I stuck it in the garden 100 feet away. Even at 12", it was the stinkiest weed I ever grew. People were over for a BBQ one saturday and the wind would occasionally come our way. I'd say "That skunk must be around again." It was funny watching people looking into the bush to see if they could see it. It was that strong. Then it went into the garage along with a few others I had growing in the bush. I'd tell the kids (20 yrs +) "Don't go near the garage. A skunk has a den in there." lol. The garage is 12x12x8 (just under 1200 c ft), poured concrete floor, insulated and vapor barrier up. My dehumidifier is good for 6000 sq feet, and I have an AC unit for it too. Historical RH here in September is always 50-75% in the daytime, and above 75-80% for 6 hrs in the wee hours. But it jumps to near 100% for 18 hrs a day in October, so that's when my dehumidifier has to earn its keep. I might get another dehumidifier just to make sure. Costs just keep going up. lol I grow a few Autos that finish in July-Aug, mid Sept Photos, but this year I'm trying a few late finishing Sativas. I'm worried about them going bad on me. I don't want to spray anything to kill mold. Hell, I hesitate to spray them with an organic tea.

    This might be a really stupid question but I dry in a shed (new sealed garage). Is there a reason for an exhaust port to the outside? Can't the air just be recirculated?

    We're allowed 4 plants, but I have 500 acres of bush to play in so... That's like telling a kid "You can only have 4 cookies." Ya right. lol

    Garden Greenhouse Idea - My Backyard Greenhouse

    Last winter my steel framed coverall/carports I got from Costco was destroyed by a ton of snow and high winds. I was going to throw it out but took it apart and kept it. It's a greenhouse now. I'll take it down again mid June and put it away until next spring. Very convenient to harden off my garden and weed seedlings.

    I grow in soil. Some garden, some forest behind the house. No I haven't. I'm still shopping around for this years seeds, but times running out. lol.

    I was wondering if this would get political. lol. You can replace the archived links with the current Act http://laws-lois.jus...ng/acts/C-38.8/ No offence but we could argue politics until next harvest, and still not be finished. I understand, it doesn't go far enough. But it is what it is, and that's better than nothing. Growing cannabis will never be as legal as growing tomatoes (mind you brewing beer and wine at home was once illegal). Personally, I'd be better off if it stayed illegal, but I'm for legalization only to spare some 18 year old of a criminal conviction, for something as trivial as a little weed, that will stop them from getting a good job after they finish College or University. For me, growing weed is much more fun than smoking it.

    That's what was proposed initially. At third reading, it's 4 plants with no height restrictions. 30 grams on you in public. It's better than a sharp stick in the eye. lol@Acid Rain. Hey... the upside is that lake water at the cabin is clearer. I think that's why they changed it. Growing horizontally would make it hard to count. It also might give guerilla growers ideas and make it harder to find.

    The quantity will do that for me. lol

    Getting excited about 2018 growing season! We will be legal here by July (?) so we can grow in the backyard, but there's something about walking in the bush to visit the girls under cover. lol
