  1. Oh, yeah. OK, then spread, not stretch. looking forward to the pics.
  2. Are you going to start with 70, or run a couple dial-in tests first? Are you going to run soil or hydro or both?
  3. Why not switch up to LEDs?
  4. Pics of the top-side? How's the stretch progressing? You had indicated that you would be scrogging under the net. I was just wondering how the branches are spreading and if any secondaries were turning upwards toward the lamps.
  5. Unexpected periods of darkness are usually not a problem, so long as it's not more than about 4 days. But 4 hours undesired "lights on" can be enough to seriously diminish yield, especially if it occurs in early flowering.
  6. Does that mean you still don't have all your scheduled processes on timers? If not, you're gonna regret it one of these days when you discover that you have accidentally reversed a blomming plant back into Vegg modus by forgetting to turn off a lamp for a day or two. Or also not good, when you open your flowering tent a couple days after a similar event to discover that one of your females suddenly turned hermie from the light confusion stress, sprang balls and pollinated your entire tent of females. Both of those accidents have happened to me before. I will admit however, that these accidents have also happened to me AFTER having everything on timers. There is that little timer-bypass-switch on the timer. If I have to perform an emergency cleaning or pest-control or emergency feeding or something just minutes before the lights are due to come on or just when the lights are about to go off, I sometimes flip that darned bypass switch. I finish my job and then, because I am stoned or just plain stupid, I forget to flip the switch back to timer modus. Such a mistake is often not caught until 24 hours later, or worse, at the next feeding 3 or 4 days later. I guess what I need to do is to make a tag to hang on the zipper of the tent "TIMER SWITCH", so that I cannot forget about the bypass switch.
  7. Hello @Bee1984, Welcome to Strain Hunters. Here is the grand daddy of all the DIY hydroponics videos. View all 9 episodes. Enjoy.
  8. Do you mean like this one? http://forums.strainhunters.com/topic/771-music4plants-and-sh/ Or you could simply start a new topic of your own. The Chill Out Lounge is a topic-area that is quite open for just about anything.
  9. Jim, you are right, if the dehumidifier is still in the tent. I was trying to encourage Shaggy to seal-up the output of the extractor and set the dehumidifier completely outside the tent. Personally, I think that all these problems will be resolved if he would find a way to seal that output exhaust pipe to the outside. Then he might not even need the dehumidifier.
  10. Yes, the Perlite adds no nutrients itself, but it allows water to drain away more quickly and thereby oxygen to reach the root ball. The additional oxygen allows the microbes in the soil to become more active and thereby they create their waste materials which the plants take-up in the roots.
  11. Interesting characteristics in the cotyledons and the initial leaves. Interesting texture to your soil. That soil looks like a super-rich compost. Have you grown in this kind of soil before? What is the pH of the run-off water?
  12. Cedar oil, Mungbean? Please tell us more...
  13. Have you tried putting the dehumidifier outside of the tent to dehumidify the room that the tent sits in?
  14. According to Wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Springtail ), Springtails (there are many species) are evolved from arthropods. Scientists have only recently stopped considering them as insects. 1. So, if you are considering using a pesticide, it might be better to use an arachnicide instead of an insecticide. 2. (from Wikipedia:) "Springtails commonly consume fungal hyphae and spores, but also have been found to consume plant material and pollen, animal remains, colloidal materials, minerals and bacteria. ....Springtails have internal mouth parts." So, if you could treat the top of your soil with a fungicide, you might deprive them of their food. Because a fungicide might also harm your mychorrhizae, I would suggest only a topical spray treatment of the soil, but a thorough spraying and cleaning of the moist or wet parts of your tent. 3. You could also try a method that works well against roaches. After the cleaning of your tent, sprinkle about a little powdered Boron. The Boron gets on their legs and hairs and on their food. When roaches clean themselves or eat the Boron, it doesn't kill them right away, instead, it enters their digestive tract and destroys their ability to digest their food. They die, and when their body is eaten by the next roach, that individual suffers a similar fate. The roach transports the poison to the other roaches. This makes Boron so effective. I would expect that Boron might also be effective against Springtails. Here is additional information about Springtails from Orkin Pest Control company. https://www.orkin.com/other/springtails/ Of particular interest is their method of reproduction, and the fact that they reproduce in large numbers, hence large infestations if not treated.
  15. Aha, now I see the problem. Your exhaust pipe is only pointing toward a window that is partially open. That is why the heat is building-up in the room. This is the same as venting into the same room that the tent is sitting in. It accomplishes virtually nothing to improve the reduction of temperature and humidity, and it it is only minimally efficient at replacing the Oxygen-rich air with ambient CO2.
  16. So, maybe they're growing their market and marketing.
  17. I assume that the extractor is sucking on the filter, and that the filter is located as high in the tent as possible? If the extraction/filter is not sucking air out of the highest point in the tent, then you will have heat build-up. Additionally, usually tent manufacturers provide vents low in the tent wall somewhere that can be opened. Those openings in my tents have also a fabric screen to keep pests out when the flap is opened. I adjust the size of the opening to fine-tune the humidity level against the strength of the suction. Concaving sides of tent? Most tent manufacturers sell additional side braces especially for that purpose; they are similar to the top bracing if your tent has those. Using inexpensive gardening sticks or bamboo sticks and the creative use of cable ties, you can fashion a similar solution. If you are especially eager to expand the inner volume of the tent against the sucking action of the extractor, consider using a small diameter PVC electrical- or water-pipe curled into a circle or 3/4 circle and lashed to the internal braces of the tent. The circular shape will hold the tent in a more convex shape.
  18. Here's a little twist on the topic's theme. Music to scare the bejesus out of viewers during a grow journal... ...but well done.
  19. LOL ffof = Fox Farms Ocean Forest. LOL

  21. BMG, have patience. You may be surprised what she yields. One of my worst runts (during the GreenHouse Kush Contest) remained with just 2 deformed true leaves for 4 weeks before it finally decided to grow further. She eventually became THE largest of my GH Kushes in that contest grow. Besides, did you say that you transferred her to coco in hopes of correcting a deficiency? Hmmm, coco is virtually devoid of nutrients, so if she recovered, then it could be that she simply finally decided to grow her roots, and conditions like pH had somehow corrected themselves over time and she was finally able to use what was available to her within the rootball soil. In coco, you will have to feed her similarly to the schedule used in hydro grows.
  22. Welcome to StrainHunters, S.mokee74. I had never heard of Mills Nutrients, so I googled them to find them. Interesting, they claim to manufacture all their products in Holland, but they do not sell any of their product in Europe. Their website seems to indicate that their sales are only through retailers located in Oregon and maybe California or Washington State. Furthermore, since in their website, there is no acknowledgement of the cannabis plant at all, they are possibly ashamed or afraid to acknowledge their participation in the cannabis industry, and it could be that their fertilizer products are not fine-tuned to the cannabis plant. Their nutrients may be more suited to growing Tulips and other decorative plants. That is a scary proposition for cannabis enthusiasts whose intent for the plant is consumption (smoking, vaping or eating). Fertilizers for some decorative plants can have poisonous or undesireable results if used for edible plants. Therefore, I would say that scant few cannabis growers might even know that Mills Nutrients exists. And until they begin demonstrating cannabis-specific testing results and cannabis-specific pride, I expect that most cannabis growers will be avoiding them. http://www.millsnutrients.com/retailers/
  23. To find the following link, click on "Products" at the top of any forum page, then click on "Buy cannabis seeds", wait for the online store to load in. Then, click on "feminized seeds" in the left menu. Find the strain you are interested in, and click on it. The description usually includes its lineage. https://shop.greenhouseseeds.nl/money-maker-strain-hunters-seed-bank.html And found another from Leafy that confirms exactly the lineage described by GreenHouse Seeds: https://www.leafly.com/indica/money-maker Differences in phenotypes I haven't yet found published anywhere. So, if you do cultivate a lot of these originating from a bunch of seeds, then maybe YOU could publish a MoneyMaker Phenotype Report for us to read in this forum...

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
