Well recently my state decided to do a smart thing and recreational marijuana is now legal! I would just like to say... ABOUT FUCKING TIME!!
I am an organic grower. i mix my own soil mixes, make simple teas to feed my plants on occasion and thats it. All of my watering is done via Blumats(highly recommend!!). Honestly my grows tend to take care of themselves. The Blumats allow me to stay away from the grow for multiple days if i want to(who would want to do that though!) i run 2 tents a 2x3 that i keep my mom and veggers in thats lit with an HTG supply LED panel and 4 2 foot T5 tubes, it gets the job done and a 3x3 that i use to flower and that has a 600w HPS with a Digilux bulb in it.
ok now to get to the good stuff
In my veg tent i currently have 3 moms and i started some new seeds a little while back for a selection(more on that later). for mother plants i have
Holy Princess- Eskobar- holy shit is all i can say. i absolutely love this plant. the smells and the way it grows its really an all around winner in my book. She reeks of pineapples and gets real chunky at the end of flower! always needs supports to hold up the buds!
GG Allin- Southern Star Seeds- this is my current go to indica. quick to finish and has such a unique taste and smell to her.
Sour Mango x East Coast Sour Diesel- Southern Star Seeds- i can never remember the name of this one so i just call it Sour Mango most of the time. Big Buds decent flavor and a good stone. she has earned a place in my tent just because she is easy to grow and yeilds well.
For seedlings i have 8 of my own cross. its a Chocolate Rain x Caramel Candy Kush cross that i call MooseTracks. People who have tried it cant get enough of it. Her smells and flavors are out of this world and she grows so damn easy. Made a pollination with a single male and pollinated 4 different ladies. so far ive only grown the seeds from one of the females and ive passed alot around as well. the keeper that i had and lost smelt like grape Jelly. Another i get to smoke on occasion smells like sour candy. Rock hard crystal covered buds. its pretty potent as well!
i also have a lone Emerald Jack dont remember who the breeder is jusy running it for the hell of it! now onto the veg pics!!
Mothers(HP back left) GG Allin(back right) Sour Mango(Front) dont mind them, ive been neglecting them for a little while, damn holidays
In the flower tent i have 3 going right now. a GG Allin(which is due to come down and looks pretty rough). she yellowed out on me real early but kept chugging along. she does that every now and then and i dont know why. i have a HP which is due down pretty soon i beleive, i would need to check the whiteboard. and i have a cross known as Pheonix from Ice River Genetics. its a (c99 x Romulan) x Grapefruit Badass, they were gifted to me years ago. the ones i grew before smelt like grapefruit candy. absolutely amazing smoke and high!!
ALL FLOWER PICS WERE TAKEN LIGHTS OFF FLASH ON!!! IM SORRY!
GG Allin- like i said she looks like shit and i apologize!
Holy Princess- love this one! she gets real chunky at the end!!
Pheonix- not doing much right now. should change the next few weeks!
i will get better flower pics next time.
Now im off to go shovel fucking snow. gotta love new england!
Hopefully the pics show up. it was a struggle to get them posted!

I have to agree that the GG looks great even though she had a rough go. That phoenix looks nice and squat and the genetic lineage is def appealing.
Thanks for sharing, also I love pictures.

I don't know why the GG is looking like that but it's ok. I honestly like to let my plants get all faded like that especially towards the end. Someone on another site told me to let them get as faded and in his words "torn up" before you chop. His opinion was that if we cure the bud to get moisture out and to let the chlorophyll break down why not let the plants fade as much as possible before the chop. It made sense to me so I've been doing it ever since. Obviously if a plant isn't fading and i know it's chop time then I take them down. I also don't use a scope anymore. I found it more of a hassle for me. I like to go by the way the plant looks and smells. I feel like once you know the plants you can pick up on the subtle signs they show when it's time to come down.
Blumats are a lifesaver! In the summer I am able to go away for a week and my tank still has water in it. I usually just top off once a week and occasionally run it out to clean the Rubbermaid bin. Would t trade them for anything.
And the moosetracks. I'm real excited to be able to show people what these can do when flowered out. Only a handful of people have smoked it and even less have grown her out. So let's hope these ones go well now that I have people watching. Unfortunately I don't hve the original moms but I do have some of the original pollen around so I'm going to break that out when they go to flower. I plan on doing another selection with these. The nicest male to the best female. Haven't done much breeding so interested to see what happens when I cross again. I'm hoping for good things!

The 6 in the square pots are from a different female than the 2 in the round pots. the mom for the 2 in the round pot had huge boxy buds that would foxtail at the end in random spots. gave the buds a unique look. the mom for other 6 leaned heavy to the Bubba kush side of the parentage of the caramel candy kush. short and stalky potent smoke. on one i can already see the leaf curl trait that i have seen show up in chocolate rain. they all look pretty good so far. i think they were started in the beginning of Nov but started off pretty slow and there were a few issues along the way. they should start sexing anytime now.
all pics were taken before i watered. dont mind the dropy leaves on a few
out of tent, flash on

Leaving the spent leaves is not a good thing really. Think of it like this. Forget the idea of growing a plant but more like a body builder. You want bulk and growth at certain spots.
This means you have to some give and take to understand but first appreciate this:
- non healthy leaves are a bigger vector for pest and disease spreading. Fungus among us potential grows as weaker leafs offer less resistance.
- They shade out areas that would benefit more from direct light.
- The plant is not gaining from maintaining these leaves, it takes more energy than they are worth and is why the plant itself is saying I do not want this. Think spent battery.
You find balance but think like I said, a body builder. You want good light penetration but not to the point you add cause the plant to increase its leaf. Taking slowly over time is the better option and not all plants are equal in sensitivity and reaction to this.
But I would remove those dead and dying leaves. They are spent batteries but many views are this exist.
