Glad to read that there might be a wekaning of the grasshopers ;) Lets hope it will keep this way! And glad that you like forum as well! 

About your tea one thing i forgot to ask is did you think already about when you are going to stop feeding the soil? All the micro organism and microlife that you are creating is perfect for the plant but it is also one of the most dificult to flush properly to have a clean grow, thats why a lot of like to grow in what they call a dead medium.. not saying something is better or not, just making sure that you are ready and thinking about your flushing plan ;)

 

Have a good grow man and thanks for the updates

ya dust thats been on my mind as well. actually to day was my last feeding. from what iv been reading once you get all microbes in place all you have to do is top dress. so today i removed all the straw and applied 5tbs of bat guano, boogi frass and 2 hand fulls of down to earth. rose and flower which 4-8-4 it has all type of micro food in it. ill post the ingredients in a later post. and then stired it in with the dirt with my fingers  then gave them a good water and put back the straw. the bottom layer of straw was composting nicely and it is looking amazing. im guessin that should be good till harvest. and that will give them 6 to 8 weeks and ill just give them water till then. dount ya think?

i was wondering. the pourpose for flushing is to rid the soil and roots of salt build up from the salt baced ferts. and sence im sure all the salts are gone from when i used the grow big by fox farms. what would be the perpose of flushing? what would you be flushing out? but that gives me some more stuff to check out  thanks for bringing up some good points.  theres a cool video on you tube on no till gardening. its called mendo somthin ill post a link later but i like what he does.  i sure cant wait till this is cured and jared. i think this will be some of the sweetest smoke iv had the pleasure of growing.  oh and can you point me in a direction for info on the last stages of flowering with a super soil.   

thanks for the intrest. this is my first type of grow like this. not really sure what im doing. kinda willy nilly but the olny way to do it is to try it out

made it through the first frost. this morning it was a 45f in the greenhouse.  i had to leave for work at 4 am. its still going to drop a few more degrees before the sun rise.  gotta love living 5000 feet above sea level in the high desert. oh and there should be some snow on the mountian tops.  10,000 +feet.  so it should take a while to get to my level.

so quick update. grasshoppers have alomst come to a hault which im verry happy about. but now i have to find them because i have to feed my spiders.  the night time temps have been dropping to around 25-30 f but iv been able to keep it up to about the mid 40s. there havent been any color changes yet so not getting to cold out. other than that every thing is looking pretty good.  also just transplanted my cloans to a 1000mh in a batch of super soil also have them a nice cup of compost tea to insure a good microbal life. well ill see how they take. i might flip them in a week or 2. cause the out door crop is doing better than i was expecting. plus i want to try out this new cannatoinc i got.  sorry for no pics will post some next update

PS its there are some glitches all my pics are right side up and when they are done loading they are side wasy.  any way happy growing

nvmedigrower,

You are probably sending your pics directly from your cell phone?

You can correct that problem if you download your pics to a computer, open the pics with a photo-editor like MS Paint (or any other photo-editor), correct the orientation there, then save the pic.  By saving in a photo-editor, the orientation attributes will be saved within the picture file.  Then upload the pics to StrainHunters Forum.  Now, the saved attributes will be recognised by the StrainHunters Forum-program, and the pics will be displayed as they were saved.

IMG950016.jpgso i got my girlfriend an awsome camera for her birthday. so here are some pics i took today. the gold leaf top cola looking like its going to be masiveIMG950014.jpg this one is sour diesel IMG950018.jpgsd under a 100x scope looks about 80 percent milky white so getting close. cut a sample cola. letting dry still. it needs to bulk up abit. but should be strait fire. im hoping. smells so good kinda has a fruityer smell than a week a go when it had a fuel type smell but a diffrent smell thats for sure not sure how well the genitics are on this one. from what iv read flower time is 10 to 11 weeks and this is going to be my first harvest.  shurly has a sative dom leavs and more a indica short bushy pheno. but i guess thats why they mix in a little indica. for a shorter flower period. any ways hope you guys like the quality pics.  

piece be the jurney

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.
