    If you can order Barney's Farm, you can order from a good breeder!

    And what's a "good breeder"? A lot of the "breeders" you guys talk about a lot of them have minimal info about their strains. Being a new grower I looked at what I wanted and searched accordingly. Yield, potency, and easy of growing were big points with me. After lights, soil, fans, pots, seeds, etc plus whatever electricity will cost I have to recoup my losses lol. Being my first grow I'd be mad as hell to grow an "excellent" strain but yield only a half oz from each plant. So if I'm wrong correct me and please point me in the RIGHT direction so I know which way to go

    I bought some seeds from True North. I got two seeds to sprout, one was a dwarf so I tossed it n the other one is coming along ok given the fact it almost died from a fungus n I completely stripped it's leaves n left it outside to die n away from my other plants. So I'm just growing bag seeds, I don't care about the strain or name, I'll call all my stuff Mother Smukers Kush. Lol

    2 days after transplant. One is showing much better growth than the others. But all in all I think they all look good

    Bodhi is very highly regarded around here. I personally like DNA and Reserva Privada. I've recently climbed onto the Bodhi train. I have never read even one bad review!

    I gave Barney's Farm a try and the germination rate was horrible both with Cookies Kush and Critical Kush. 0 for 6 on Cookies and 1 for 6 on Critical. I'd never give another penny to Barney's.
    Best of luck with your grow though

    Got my exhaust fan yesterday. It's a 6" in inline fan with 440 cfm. It's WAAAYY bigger than I thought lol but it's not a problem. I probably only needed a 4" in inline fan but using logic I figured it made more sense to spend the extra $10 for the 6" in and the use a controller to dial it down if needed. I'd rather have more cfm than less imo. What is a problem though is all the damn air the fan moves lol. So I ordered a $20 fan speed controller which is shown in the pics which I have questions about. I've been spending the last few days reading and trying to get a solid answer but all the info I see is debatable and/or outdated. I don't know if the fan has a "brushed" or "brushless" motor as I don't know what these are or the difference. So my question is will this controller work PROPERLY with my fan, is it SAFE for my fan, and will it damage/decrease the life of my fan. Or should I send it back and spend $50+ for the other kind of controllers I see

    Good deal. It needs to be lower like 6.5.
    I use reclaimed water from my A/C, it's like using rain water.

    I have a friend who has grown Barney's from seed and they were, I forget what strain it was. I have an Amnesia Lemon from them that I got as a free seed and it's the best one I have in my grow right now, it's a very vigorous plant, even as soon as the the first couple of leaf sets appeared I could tell it would be a strong plant.

    Well I got 5 fem blue cheese and 2 fem blueberry for a total of 7 beans. I planned on having 4 plants. I germed 4 beans and they all sprouted with good root tips. Planted all 4 germed beans and 3 popped out the soil in like 2 or 3 days. The 4th never came up after almost 2 weeks so I trashed it. I was going to plant another but I said since this is my first grow I will just go with the 3. I will try to veg the 3 a "little" longer to make up for the yield lost from the 4th bean not sprouting

    Yes I know. I haven't put pics up with it but I have already put a 8" in desktop fan in there that I have blowing over them. They ar getting an excellent breeze from the looks of their gentle swaying. I got my 6"in inline fan on hand already on standby. My temps in the room stay constant all day around 70-74 degrees with lights on and between 67-72 degrees with lights off. This is achieved by utilizing the ac vent in the bathroom that runs from my central ac unit. I also have the ability to leave the door open so that helps with CO2, temps, etc etc.. Planned on hooking up the inline fan in the next couple days WITHOUT the filter because I'm still vegging and don't think I'll be flowering for atleast another 3-4 weeks. When I get close to flowering I will install the filter
