  1. Hello grow buddies. Been a few years now. I've not grown anything since my last grow report all those years ago. I've not even smoked a spliff after my little harvest ran out. It was fun while it lasted. The Cream Caramel grow I did was pretty successful for me I think especially as I'm a total noob. Plus that weed fucked my head like nothing ever before. It wasn't just paranoia it was almost psychosis. Super super strong bud. And I still get one seed left! Kept in the fridge in a sealed marmite jar with a couple of those packet things you get with hard drives to take out any moisture. It's about 5 years off the top of my head, but I'll work it out a bit more exactly later on. I doubt they will work. Or maybe the will. This is why this is an experimental grow. The other 2 seeds I got and from the same time and stored in the same conditions are Heavyweight 2 Fast 2 Vast and Massive Midget. Don't ask me why. It's just what I had lying around. I probably bought them on a whim. Not tried to grow any heavyweight before. I've heard mixed reports where as I can vouch for the Sweet Seeds Cream Caramel (as can others by the sounds of it). I think the 2 Fast 2 Vast might even be a tall girl with a bit of Sativa in her, I'm assuming massive midget is not so tall. No idea. Don't even care. I've got these seeds ready to throw out. I don't smoke weed anymore and I havnen't grown for years. But I just couldn't bring myself to check them in the bin. I still have all the gear (and no idea!). LOL. Here are the seeds: I can't even remember what equipment I have and I can't even remember where it is! It's around here somewhere... I think I have a DS-60 and a 300w bulb run off a digital balast. You can check out my old posts if you care - it's all there. I still have my little microbox to propogate them and even though one of the fans burned out I'll get it back up to speed. The idea with this grow is to not spend any monet at all. I have a few bucks to throw at it if I have to but all my bulbs, from CFL to High Pressure Sodium and even my carbon filter are on their last legs and end of life. They have just about one last grow in them. I've really milked those CFLs and the HPS technically has one more grow before it needs to go in the bin. Pretty sure the filter only has one last hoorah as well. We'll see. Like I said, I don't care. If I need to get something in for the grow I will. This is why it's gonna be a fun experiment. AS for the earth and whatnot I still have half a bag of decent soil and a couple of bags of garden compost. That will do. I might even have more, but I'm not buying more now. This will have to do. I have a few sprinkles left of microgranules for the new gals and a load of old timer bloom and biosilicon and that's about it - bare bones - all you need really - kind of stuff. I'll make an inventory and post it before I get going. All for the learning. I'll be surprised if those pips even sprout, but we'll see... I've also got a dehumidifier since my last grow and it's a superb little thing. Should be for 5 bucks a night to run on the electricity. But it does keep the damp at bay. I won't be scrimping or cheaping out on this grow, if I need something I'll get it in. It's probably even a silly idea to even try to grow those old seeds now what with the cost of all the leccy and whatnot, but I do want to see if they will grow and how best I can grow them. If I enjoy the grow, I may even do one or two more. Or I may sell off the equipment that I have. Like I said, I'm indifferent to it all really. Not sure what I will do with the smoke when I get it, I'll probably just keep it long term for cooking with cookies or whatever. I'm not looking for high yield. If I can see me getting around 2oz per plant then I'll be happy. I still haven't decided if I will do a scrog kind of thing. I may. Or I may just tie the mothers down! I'm not going to spend long with them in the microbox - as soon as they are up and runnning then it'll be in to the DS-60. I'm not going to blast it too much with light, but I think I have a super lumens boost on my digital ballast that can take it up to nearly 300w (it's a 250 bulb iirc). Forgive me if I got anything wrong. I'll make a list of what I'm using when I find the stuff and get it out of the boxes. One thing I've considered is that not all 3 seeds germ and therefore I'll want to get some more, or maybe they will germ but not 'take' - I'm prepared for that. If so, I'll buy some more seeds. No idea from where. In an ideal world it would be Sanny of course, but just for a few pips I'm not sure and I don't even know if he's doing fem/auto seeds now. I'm going to check out what he's up to though. I'm sure the growing world has moved on in many big ways since my last little foray in to the game. One thing I guess is LED lighting. But I'm not forking out for that if this is my last grow. If I get the bug again, maybe I'll consider it. I'm not after high yield, and at the very most it would be one grow per year just for the hell of it and to have a little stash for some cookies. My place has been tested for safety and all the circuits are good, all safety in place as much as possible. I recently had an ex Royal Marine come in here and do some work on some fans for me and he busted me straight away. Not sure how. He says it was the ONA block but I'm not so sure. Old Timer Bloom and Biosilcion in the cupboard under where he was fitting the fans probably gave the game away. He laughed about it at first and of course I denied it, but he just opened up and said he was doing a grow on a 600w bulb with quite a few plants so he could make oil for his mum that was dying of cancer. I know making oil is quite difficult/dangerous - who knows, maybe he was telling the truth - anyway, still not been busted! He gave me some good tips about the state of play with LED lighting now so that was interesting as well. Growing weed is still illegal here in the UK, but it's pretty much been decriminalised by the back door especially in the county I live in. Of course, I know it may mean a life sentence technically, but I'm prepared for that. If you can't do the time, don't do the crime. Anyway, enough of that shit. I'm sure I'll knock up a few plants and they will be ok, and I'll eventually end up smoking/eating them in some way. And in some small way they will make my little life that much better for the little time I get to commune with them. I really enjoyed doing my last grow. I know I'm still an idiot noob, but I got ok results. I just love growing herb! It's great to see the old place still kicking along. I guess growing weed still hasn't gone out of fashion, whether for fun or profit. I always liked it here at opengrow and you experienced growers gave a silly little know-nothing noob like me a warm place to hang out. It's good to give something back. This report will be slow to start off with. I aim to dig out all the old stuff and make a more solid plan in the coming weeks. Get the electricals and the space up to speed and clean and safe. I was thinking maybe end of February as a starting point. I don't want to fuss and muck about too much. I want this to be fun. And like I said, it'll probably be my last grow and I'll end up selling off the few bits and pieces that I have left over. Then again, the joy of growing weed might just take a hold of me again and I'll maybe even upgrade to some new lighting and other bits and pieces if needs be. Definitely going to need some new seeds! I can't wait to see if these little babies crack open - they've been in the fridge for at least 5 years now. And if they do open up, I'm even more eager to see how they do in the big bad world they will inhabit, in the corner of my bedroom, in a DS-60! Update in a little while...
