PuaManaOhana meets Appalachia E Komo Mai

Recommended Posts

 

Hey Saxo, thank you kindly for peeking in!!

Man I take crappy photo's.

01 MW, 02 Alley, trichomed challenged bud, most hanging way down, 03 other Alley loaded with diamonds, 04 and 05 just vanity shots of 03, sorry  not lady should be remembered by just her bud appearance.

I have had more fragrant varieties, but these do have  a more subtle smell, but when scoping them and your nose is like right freaking THERE, very strong. And some spicey undertones I really do not know, funky socks meets oregano? Maybe just not sure. And odd but alluring smell also.

I know many folks are embroiled inthe real or fake by this house, and I just do not know enough about breeding, nor the Islands, to jump into that fray. I will say, I'm in no way unhappy with sharing space with these strains. You all fight it out about that, I'm really thrilled I took the chance with them, so far, I still have tasted nothing, and I'm a cured weed lover so it will be a while.

Stay on point everyone!!

And do NOT drop the damn buggy beater ball, like I did.

Wow, bad ass, man! You really got some size out of your buds! I wouldn't worry about the drama attached. Hell, half of what we grow is likely mislabeled genetics. Looks like a load of good smoke to me. I hope they have that exotic island flare!

Well well well, today is the day, I've been a waiting for!! I am pulling all of them out, to reload that tent, and next line up is just chomping at the bit to get budding.

I'm only going to prepare the MW for culling today, and the Alley's will be doing some time in the dark, maybe a week, maybe less. 

So all that means is a whole bunch of delicious fun work, making totes of medium up. Dinosaur vomit bucket is almost full, and I've found a couple of packs of frozen vegetables in my freezer, from our garden a while back,  that is now south of decent to heat and eat. So into the DV it goes!!

Cuts2clones, must take lots clips, I like to soak mine in some tea, some kelp, with a drop of B1, then into perlite, with the drain holes brought up the side of the cup, to make a sort of reservoir so the perlite does not need rewetted so damn much. All the gardens I'm working with are now using perlite as it's so cheap and easy to work with, and cost MILES less than Rapid Rooters.

Will slap up some dismembering photos for the darker viewer, LOL!! Just a bit later on today.

I have a bunch of 10/20 trays, so I poke cuts in these Get To Cloner's, tea them, and poke prepared cuts into them, all on a 10/20 and my humidity dome fits the trays perfectly.

Just a quick lift lets you know how much juice is in there. Or, once every 3-4 days I put refill until the holes weep. I will give them daily or every other day a nice foliar spray.

You could mix a bit, maybe half and half with vermiculite/perlite and not reflood as often as vermic really holds water well...sometimes to well, thus the mix.

Thanks for stopping Gardenartus!! 

There is an idiot pooping all over the site selling crappy buds to growers of all nonsense. We need a spam exorcising.

Hey Mr-W, Thank you for dropping by!!

Yeah,  I'm a hopeless tinkering fool man. I use only big chunk perlite myself, the smalls have so much dust with them, you need to wash it out first, as that dust becomes mud and worthless to rooting.

Cups are cups, but once I raised up the drain holes to the sides, that made a wee reservoir, they really started to blow out roots. 

I can snap a lid on the used ones,  then into a milk crate type of open top box I have, then I place all of them into a large square tote, and dunk them in a H2O2 solution with a small pump swirling the cleaning juice, and cleaning the perlite also. Kind of a lazy way, but saves me bunches of time.

I would put perlite in a old colander with a plate on top, and set that into my square tote with H2O2 solution.

Take care all. I got some changes coming real, real soon!! Gotta love upgrades!!

Well well well, where to start, as you listen to Frankie, or not, a few snaps to end this endeavor. And a few words to think about.

I'm thrilled, I decided to work Pua's seeds, are they real, are they fakes, I just do not give a rats ass about that, you folks that worry of that stuff, there were a few nuances to warrant those thoughts. I'm not into breeding enough to really have a grasp of all the bickering about them.

WHAT I've grown out, is worthy beside every single plant I've grown out since 2001. Was every single one fire, NOPE! But they can stand tall to every breeder here at Sannies, or Hemp Depot. Also 2 cultivars under my belt from a house does not make me an expert concerning their company, but I'm in NO way, NO WAY disappointed with them .

For Mr.GoodFellow, as I prepared them for culling, the aroma's are spectacular!! Each one, unique. The 2 Alenuihaha are a bit the same, but the A plant is WAY sweeter to the nose, more floral, maybe a touch of sandalwood  and spices. The C plant, is more sour, metal, with a wet moss funky smell, so lovely!!

The Maui Wowie, well I called her a skunk type of plant early on, and her structure and appearance is just that. Fat buds, super sticky, and her nose is so freaking unique to any  skunk I've grown out so far. She is not raw skunk smelling at all, juicy fruit, with some deeper floral undertones, with a smattering of vanilla, and coconuttish. Yeah I know that's not a word, sue me.

I absolutely loved running these plants!! I've given out cuts to every garden I know, I gave the B Alenuihaha plant to a good friend, to have an off site tester plant of sorts. She will be bottle fed, so I can get a comparison going on, to my crappy version of Organics.

This where I'll ask you to enjoy, Thank You all for stopping in during this wonderful grow (for me anyway) and I will Thank Paumanaohana's crew, we had a few hiccups along the way, but it all worked out, and you all should be proud of your beans, well the strains I worked anyway. I really had hope, they and Sannie would hammer something out, and maybe have a few offerings here...or not.

Very cool Webe, thanks for the report. Looks like they really yielded well. Especially for your first organic run. I think you'll be impressed with the flavor nuances over synthetic ferts. Glad to hear you were pleased with the grow. I hope to find me some Hawaiian beans one day, but I have my hands full atm. heh.

Can't wait to hear the smoke reports. I bet you're really impressed with the organics. You really put the extra effort in, too. Now all you gotta do is wait! arrrggghhh. It's the hardest part.

peace

Big Congratulations to Hawaii little league baseball champs!! Freaking great games every one of them!!

As a kid, I loved baseball, loved to play, loved to watch them, loved to know stats and what not...until they went on strike years ago. After that I could care less about watching millionaires prance about playing ball.

However the little leagues, are great fun to watch for me. There were some fantastic games, this year, Hawaii/Georgia the first game went to 11 innings, when 6 is the usual. 

The wee folks really brought me up watching them play. My wife is honestly more of a fan than I am. Freaking great ball games for sure this year.

Bad Month of August!

I then had a horrible issue, and was forced to tear my area apart, set up a tent in a very insecure location, and just stuff all my veggers into it, thinking it would be a few days, but no, it was dark until yesterday. What a hellish month!

But I needed time for the smoke report. Due to desperation of circumstances, these did not get the slow cure I always practice. I was forced to use another MUCH hotter are, and they dried way to fast for my liking. So, with that in mind, here goes.

The 2 Alenuihaha plants were very close to exact copies, except for one is very green, and the other very red in appearance. The green allie, has little in the taste and smell category. Nothing special to report on that one, except I did cut a lot of it, it dried out to 1 half gallon mason jar, and 3 quarts jars full. The buzz is nice, a perfect day time smoke, as I can still puff and poke around doing this and that. I'm making butter today with some of it. On a 1-10 scale, she falls into the middle around 5-6 IMHO on potency, very easy to grow, an ok yielder IMHO.

The red haired pheno, has a very pleasant smell, floral, spicey, with some earthy funkiness going on also. More uplifting, more cerebral, way more tasty than greenie. She will smack you when to greedy on the pipe, and she's not harsh at all on the lungs, and when I exhale from a nice hit, I get a wonderful taste from her. I'll rate her around 7-8 IMHO.

A very nice plant for sativa lovers that do not want the paranoia some satties can have. I will run her once again.

The Maui Wowie: MW will be in my garden for a long time!! The smell of her bud is just magical to me. The very first scent for me is the smoky undertones of maybe some Jack Flash genetics somewhere in her genes. I fell in love with Jack Flash x Super Skunk back around 2002 or 03.

Instant mind soar from a big lungful hit. Some buzzes take a bit for lift off, not MW bam your on the top floor! It is a crazy delicious tasting smoke, for us, and also the smallest reaping I'm sorry to say. Very worthwhile, as my next one going in is HUGE as it has vegged out this past hell month.

I also do not think my organic skills are close to dialed in yet, so I'm not knocking the genetics, as I'm learning still. Every person that sampled her, and I did not say anything about her name before sharing her. Every single person that tasted her, went crazy for her. I got a lot of " OMG, what is that" ?  An older friend, after we smoked a small bowl, sat there a while, and looked at me, his old eyes just twinkling, very quietly said," man, I've not tasted  something that delicious since, and he just trailed off and did not finish his thought. Nuff said to me!

Where to begin. 

As these girls age in glass, they just amaze me more each time I open them, bury my nose into the jar, and intake a big lung full of their delicious aroma's !!

I was forced to dry them in my garage, a most HORRIBLE drying area, as the temps were about 100+ degrees at the time. I did try to catch them before they got to brittle to fast, but was only moderately successful.......so freaking much was rocking my world at the same time.

I have been adding a huge fan leaf from the now flowering second MW and she is huge, to my jars to steal the moisture from the leaf for the buds. Again moderately successful. It is working some as I have a nose orgasm from their aroma, each day.

The potency, is also creeping upward, but the taste is still a bit flat for me, except the MW as she has a very special taste, I'll be keeping around for a long time, as I still have maybe seven seeds left of her. All cracking now.

The Carme Kona Coffee Cookies plants are still bushing, and the Aloha 98's are are also. Pics later on today, as I got to jet now!

Due to stuff happening, I decided to swap out my 4' x 4' x 7'6" tent to a 4' x8'x 7'6" , so I had to replumb the exhaust system, changing out the 4" Vortex fan to the 6" Vortex fan, and found a sweet spot where I could bounce it to another area. The place where the carbon filter is now located, is an area where must run a dehumidifier, pretty much year around. Now that all that heat is being shoveled over there, the dehumidifier does not hardly collect any humidity, so I turned it off, and think we may not need it now. So we'll watch and see.

I have a huge Maui Wowie, Honey Badger Haze, and I think it's a Huckleberry Space Queen that got way to big as delays happened in there now, looking all lonely.

I'll be bringing into the flower tent, 3 plants, every month, of course taking cuttings from each, rooting and turning them, for a nice (in theory) perpetual set up.

The Carmel Kona Coffee Cookie plants are almost ready to go over also, and the Aloha 98's will be ready then to.

I'm still hammering out amounts of fertilizers per pot size, and that timing, that seems to be on a 4-6 week time frame before I need to reapply them.

I am trying to balance out, acidic ferts with oyster shells, and counting on the bio char to aid with softening the effects of to much ferts. However so far I would say, I'm leaning more to the deficiency side of that equation, and I'm ok with that. But will continue to write down all my amounts I use and what pots size they are in.

I'm also changing my tea making set up, and using 1 gallon containers, over making 10 gallons at a whack, as I find, I'm just not using them as fast. AND, I really like having a few types bubbling all the time, Buffalo Loam with kelp, compost with bokashi, and one I bubble coffee grounds and spent Keurig cups for a nice acidic blend.

 

Have fun kids!!

Loving on that Chris Rea song!!

Just a few snaps. Still trying to find the right timing where I re-add the proper amounts as the root ball eats them.

AND, my bud are not as voluptuous as usual. BUT we are coming into fall and cool months so maybe the next round will beef up. 

I did find something a bit weird in my Cottonseed Meal, when I opened a new package, but I had scooped out some, into a mixing cup, and admented one of the vegger pots, when I was dipping back into the box, some freaking tiny bugs. Grabbed the magnifying glass, and all through that box all these wee bugs.

So I dumped a cup of diatomaceous earth in it and shook it about. Not sure what they are, and hope they do not frankenstein on me.

My hand made sticky traps are working very well. I painted yellow on some window blind slats left over from installing blinds in a friends house. You almost always need to remove a few slates to true them up to a window. So I paint them, apply the sticky, and poke, or hang them about. Toss when covered in bugs. I'll be making some blue ones soon.

Not my best work for sure.

Hey Indiclicious, Thank you for the kind words. 

I have been very careful with my organic additives, and I will be increasing the amounts,  and the frequency when I add them. But I got so much to learn.

Now I'm playing with making a CO2 set up for my clone tray, since I saw how fast my friends cuts took to root, with Green Pads. I'm just too cheap to pay $20.00 for a few pads.

I made CO2 many years in my first box with a camping water storage bag, and shower adapter, an airstone and aquarium pump.

I still have a couple of weeks to go for the first big 3 to be ready to cull. I really love the big assed pots those 3 are in, but the veg time, is a good bit longer, and I never really wanted these 3 to get that big.  

The next gen's are in maybe 3 gallon square pots, 3 of them went in a few weeks back. Now I added 3 more for the veg area, in past couple of days. Since I'm trying to figure out a feeding cycle to match their growth cycle, without over or underfeeding them, I'm really failing in flower. So, every 3 weeks I give them 1/2 portions of everything, with tea  or water about every 3-4 day now in the smaller pots.

My cuttings are most definitely staying green and perky longer in the 10/20's, using perlite as a medium, and a honey/kelp concoction as root gel, with a $.50 packet of yeast combined with a tablespoon of sugar dissolved in a cup of tepid water.

In one tray, I used a styrofoam walking coffee cup, with a lid, and the CO2 emitted from the drinking hole.

The other tray, I poked a hole in a mason lid, to fit a piece of tubing. Again, hot sugar water, is dumped into the jar with the yeast. Set everything on my heat mat 82F.

It smells like bread is baking a little bit anyway. Since yeast is well a mold, be careful mold loves humidity.

I hope your all loving life, and staying upright!!
