    I came up with this to press my infused glycerin. Cheese cloth works well as a filter medium.
  2. It has been awhile so guess I should catch you all up on life at the beach. You may have heard the west side of the country is experiencing very high temps. We usually escape the hot stuff here but a few weeks ago it came with a vengeance. For 3 days straight we had temps at the coast over 95 degrees topping out at 109 one day all with humidity in the 70-80's. Of course very few here have A/C so we were miserable, especially at night. It took a week for our indoor temp to get below 80 degrees. It was awful. I had to turn my ballast down to 75% to keep it barely under 100 in the grow room. Happily that has all passed and not so happily we have been stuck in an onshore flow for a couple weeks bringing low clouds and drizzle even as the temps 50 miles inland are still in the 80's and 90's. Such is life at the beach. I have been very busy this spring and summer filling in and leveling a big piece of our back yard. It took 14 cubic yards of top soil and a whole bunch of elbow grease to get it done. I planted grass about 3 weeks before the record hot spell we had so it was a challenge keeping it watered in 100 degree weather. I planted it in several sections so some has come in very well while some of the more recent areas are still getting there. It turned out to be more of a job than I anticipated and I really glad to have it done. A few more weeks and I can remove the temp fence and the dogs can have at it. I am have been growing Phuuu's IPA's for a couple of rounds now trying to build up my supply. I have 2 of them in the flower room at 7+ weeks and I had 2 clones from each in the veg area until today when I moved the clones from #2 to the flower room. The clones from #1 will veg awhile longer. I also have another IPA fem sprout and 2 Green Ale fems (green manalishi x phuuu's ipa) sprouts coming up. Here's a look at the veg space before and after the 2 clones went to 12's. and the flower room...#2 on the left, #1 on the right. Phuuu's IPA fem #1 @ 50 days Phuuu's IPS fem #2 @ 53 days That's about it. Thanks for stopping by and stay safe and sound out there.
  3. My 2 cents is too much water and a ph issue.
  4. Quick update to show you pics of the Critical Mass x (G13xHashplant) x Citral just before she was chopped at the 11 week mark. She was not at all what I expected her to be but her dense sticky buds are looking pretty good. She smells of lavender and hash with a little skunk thrown in. She was only 2 feet tall after a decent veg time but looks like she will give a decent yield. All of the IPA clones are in 12's now with 2 of them going in a week before the other 2 to make it easier come harvest time. So, I have 6 IPA's in the flower room now and I started a couple of IPA #2 fems last week that are up and looking good. They should be the larger pheno with one of them equal to almost two of the smaller ones I have going now. I'll take cuts from them when they are ready and hope to build up a years stockpile of IPA so I can get to a bunch of others. It was time for maintenance on my 2 LED veg lights so I took them apart and blew them out the other day. Amazing how much crap builds up in there after 6 months or so, now they are all cleaned out and ready to go. We had 10 yards of topsoil dumped in our front yard last week. This weekend we moved a bunch of it to the back yard with the lawn tractor and a little dump trailer. The back yard use to be a cow pasture years ago and there are high and low spots all over. Our current mission it to even it out and plant new grass, gonna be a lot of work but sure gonna be nice when it's done. Here's hoping this old body holds up. Hope you all are enjoying Spring as much as me. Stay safe out there.
  5. NYCD x Lemon Thai (Santero)
  6. The video must be uploaded to Open Grow or a link to where it is posted must be followed for it to be accessible to all devices.
  7. Yes, it is kinda common with them and they often have a lighter shade of green no matter how much N you give them. The #1 in this batch (and the clones from it) also has a mottled discoloration of her fan leaves which lessens as they mature and is a common trait of the short ones. What has always been consistent with the IPA's no matter if they are tall or short, extra frosty or not is their aroma and effect.
  8. Spring has sprung here at the beach and I am struggling to get the ole body in gear for another season of yard care. Gotta mix up a few gallons of weed/grass killer to spray my gravel drive and also sprinkle a few pounds of moss killer around. Fun times. First though, I will catch you up on the grow room starting with the 4 Phuuu's IPA clones recently up-potted to #5's and a week or so away from going to 12's. I'm still waiting to chop the NYCD x LT girl. She is 82 days in now and definitely ready to chop but with the Easter weekend and what not I haven't had a chance. Maybe later today if I get my chores done. I really like this stuff and am hoping to find some seeds on her from the Red IPA (IPA x Nepalma CBD) pollen that I hit her with. Fingers crossed. The Amnesia Haze x Black Domina that I chopped a couple weeks ago is impressive in both appearance and potency. She smells of coffee and hash with just a hint of lavender and has a sweet but harsh inhale. I imagine a good cure will mellow the harshness. The effects are immediate and intense starting behind the eyes and expanding to the rest of the body. It is uplifting but also intoxicating and somewhat disabling at first. Once you get past the first few minutes it is a wonderful buzz with good legs. It may however significantly increase the time it takes to do this update. Here's a look at one of her dried buds... The Critical Mass x (G13 x Hashplant) x Citral lady is a bit of an enigma. She has a classic indica structure, is only 2 feet tall, she is 9 weeks in 12's and shows no sign of being ready. That leaves the 2 IPA girls who are 36 days in now. As I mentioned in a previous post, these are the short pheno of IPA which usually pop up about 25% of the time. as they have developed and matured you can now see how they differ. Number 1 IPA is very similar to the #5 pheno that I worked a couple years ago. It has flattened buds that stack up and are maybe 50% more frosty than usual. The #2 has the conical bud structure of most IPA's. You can see the earlier versions in my gallery here. IPA #1 IPA #2 There you have it. Time to get to work around here. Take care and stay safe out there.
  9. Thanks man, you are right about the AHxBD, I got only 3 grams of dry trim from her. She is now drying but I picked off some preflower calyx's to fill my pipe (she has nice fat ones) and really like the high. Oh good, I was going to Broski next to see it they arrived yet. Glad you like them. I used to be able to track a package all the way but now our new postmaster makes changes and once it leaves the U.S. it is no longer tracked. Somehow this is progress? I received the card yesterday, thanks my friend, I hope you and yours have a wonderful Easter as well. Now that we are both vaccinated we get to have Easter at our son's place and see all the grandkids. Grandma is very excited.
  10. Thanks Mr. G, as you probably know I got the NYCD x LT from San awhile back. This one is a clone, her momma gave me 7 oz of dried bud that I really like. It gives a nice combo high that is uplifting but all encompassing, too much and you will not be accomplishing much. Also, it smells like a pot roast when you break it apart, first time I have had that aroma profile.
  11. Amnesia Haze x Black Domina @ 11 weeks
  12. Happy Friday to all you working stiffs out there. Time to catch you up on the grow rooms. The 4 Phuuu's IPA cuts got up-potted to #2's the other day and I cranked up both of the larger LED fixtures. After this run it will be time for maintenance on those lights. Gotta open them up and blow them out and wipe down all the fan blades. Amazing how much crude builds up in the darn things. All is good in the flower room. I have a couple of chops coming right up. The Amnesia Haze x Black Domina is 11 weeks in and looking like she is ready. I am really impressed with her, big ups to Oaseeds for producing this chunky girl. Her buds are like clubs and they are really dense. Even her low inner buds are huge, no popcorn on this girl. I did a sample bud at 10 weeks and it was probably ready then but the extra week works out better for me. She has a very nice up high that is balanced by a good body buzz. Can't wait to try more of this one. Also nearing the end is the NYCD x LT clone. She is 10 weeks in and has formed an impressive main cola. Gonna give her 1 more week mostly because I love looking at her. That brings us to the Critical Mass x (G13 x hasplant) x Citral, she is 52 days in and building some nice (though rather smallish in comparison) buds. This girl didn't turn out anything like what I envisioned it would but she has a nice sweet hashy aroma and nice form. That leaves the 2 Phuuu's IPA fems who are 25 days in now and are about done stretching at about 36" tall. This is the short pheno of IPA and it comes through about 25% of the time in my previous batch of seeds. Getting 2 short ones right out of the gate with the new seeds makes me wonder it they will be more prevalent in these. We shall see. The only drawback to the smaller pheno is yield so I just have to grow more of them. OK, on to the pics, better get your drool towel ready for the Amnesia Haze x Black Domina. Flower room. Phuuu's IPA fems Critical Mass x (G13 x hasplant) x Citral NYCD x Lemon Thai clone Amnesia Haze x Black Domina I was dissapointed to find that none of the Hammerhead buds I hit with 2 year old Huck Kush pollen produced any seeds. On a better note, I was thrilled to find some NYCD x LT x Green Ale seeds. Those are gonna be high on my run list for sure. That's all for now. Stay safe out there.
  13. Very nice to see you again Mr. G, looking forward to pics of the IPA. Always thought she would have good yield potential outdoors, glad to hear it helps your neighbor. All is good here, we got both our shots and are busy remodeling the guest room and waiting for it to warm up enough to start the outdoor chores. Hope to see more of you around here, it's been pretty quiet lately. Take care.
  14. Well kinda. I was gifted some F2's of Chucky's Bride and then I made some more. I do have some that I made available.
