    Happy 420

    Hey Folks,

    The drying process drags on... next time around I'll have a better way of drying. Unfortunately, it's been hanging up for 9 days and is just almost. there. I took them all down to put in jars, but with a closer inspection some buds were still way to moist. But who the hell am I kidding, this bud still has a long way to cure, so letting it dry an extra day won't be much. It really is hard not to smoke it. I know it's not ready but damn it's like it's here and it's sticky and hella fluffy. the temptation is great. I am happy to say that I exceeded my goal by 6 grams for a final weight of 34 grams. They are actually a lot denser than I thought they were. In the drying process it compacts and reduced in size, so that would explain my thinking that it was too fluffy.

    The exhale tastes like blue cheese right now. It'll be interesting to see where the exhale goes after it's done drying and curing. Inhale is the sweet blueberry taste. The High does have Sativa properties; you can feel it right away, with a little pressure behind the eyes. Unfortunately I'm hungover so I feel like its accentuating the throbbing. The high can be felt in the head for 30 minutes until it settles in the body. No ounce of paranoia and I feel like it doesn't weigh me down.

    Anyways I talk to much. Lol

    Happy 420 Folks!

    Awesome, definitely going to give this a shot. What was the dimensions of the PC in cm if you can measure I would greatly appreciative. I have two gutted pcs but they are medium sized and not the nice full towers like recommended in typical teks

    Thank you sir!

    Try it out, maybe one of those cases you could use for clones and vegging.

    Hey Y'all

    Tomorrow marks 2 weeks of curing and it looks like the advice to cure for 6 weeks might be true. I'll definitely take it to four and see how it is then, but everyday the smell and smoothness gets better. The harshness is going away, along with the moisture. The smoke is clean but a few days ago it gave me horrible coughing fits and today I coughed once.

    The blueberry smell is light, but when broken up it smells like sweet mangos. It's very intoxicating. The exhale is still blue cheese that is nothing to write home about. However I do believe the exhale will get better with cure. The high is nice and mellow with putting you to sleep or making you tired.

    I'm working on my case right now, so I expect a new grow to be happing in a week or so. Stay tuned!

    -DT

    I sold my pc grow case to a buddy. It seems to get passed round between friends. I've owned it twice lol

    It was a 125w cfl in there, I have my drobe with 100w of cob, so bigger area and cheaper to run. Plus I couldn't move. Have so much stuff because of growing.

    Nice job on the weed! Looks and sounds really lovely weed.

    Working on your case then ey? What you doing to her?

    Thanks dude!

    Right now my pc is gutted. I have put it on the back burner right because I was and still am planning on building a cab, but the funds are super low. I'm not even buying weed this paycheck. But it's all good I have some monies getting freed up in July and then in August. Some purchases I made will be done by then. But I think I might put the pc back together and have one last run. I do miss it

    HOWEVER! I'll be coming back swinging with some awesome projects this fall. The temps are starting to get hot in the state I live so it's not too big of a deal that I don't have any money... besides not being able to buy. Ah well I need a break my tolerance is fucking high

    Yeah those blurples do fine for an introductory light. But they're not ideal.

    You've done really well though buddy.

    Hey Folks,

    I haven't been growing in a while but I have still been here on the website the whole time. I really have missed growing cannabis but I did have a Tomato plant in a 5gal that did really well. I also have a strawberry plant that had it's first yield, although a strawberry plant's first yield isn't tasteful. It gets better in the 2nd and 3rd year. So needless to say I have also kept up with growing just not cannabis. Man I have really been missing growing cannabis though, so I'm glad to announce the PC tower is up and running. I just have one LED UFO up because I'm starting seeds off and I don't want to nuke them. Right now I have a Afghani reg seedling that I got from Nirvana for a freebie and as well 2 different types of Heirloom Tomato plants. The tomatoes will be grown outside but started off inside. Some day I'll have a seedling/veg/mother tent but alas not now. Definitely in the next few years.

    I am going to be starting a bagseed of some decent weed. I hate to use these on a pc grow because their bomb seeds. They germinate in less than 48 hours and will be sprouted in another 2-3 days. The afghani is a little slow, it broke surface yesterday and today it hasn't spread its cotyledons out. I had an issue with damping off as well as fungus gnats. I lost two seedlings to damping off or mosquitoes or both. Two of my houseplants had really moist soil that wouldn't drain properly so I had a shit ton of gnats. I'm hoping this seedling makes it, if not I'll be adding more perlite to the mix. The two houseplants are outside, I'm waiting for the top two inches to dry out so I can get them with peroxide and water. I gave it two treatments of BT but they still haven't died out. Anyways here are the pics

    Hey folks,

    I’ve had this PC grow going on for about 2 months. It’s been growing a little slow but has been speeding up the past month. Tonight I took my Blue Mystic out of 44hrs of complete darkness and started the 12/12 light schedule. She might get too big for the case, so i’ll have to prune back some branches. 4 days ago I top dressed it with worm castings and compost. As well, 9 days ago I gave it high Nitrogen Bat Guano.

    I have a make shift scrog netting that does an ok job. It holds the nodes down but it’s just not the best thing for the job. Right now it’s under 100 true watts from two LED UFO’s. This set up is a little different from my last grow, but this is more efficient and should lower the temperatures a little. Light leaks are my biggest enemy, seeing as there are little cracks everywhere. I’ll figure it out though. Enjoy the pics

    Nothing wrong with that. And hey. You got over an oz from your last one. Good job.

    I only got 2.25 from my big ass box. But that was paranoia and poor decision at the end that dropped my numbers.

    Thank you dude! Yeah I’m not disappointed by the outcome. However it took forever to finish flowering, and I’m guessing it’s because of light leaks. Another possibility is the LED lights being shitty Chinese LED’s but I’m going to go with light leaks. This grow will definitely be better though and it already is. Thanks for following

    Maybe your next thing can be to swap the shitty chinese lights for some Samsung LM561C strips. They're the same chips found on quantum boards... I think. Either way. They're very efficient.

    Oh yes they are definitely getting switched. I’m building a cabinet right now and have my eyes on some Timber cob lights. Cob lights are too sophisticated to build. I don’t have the tools or patience. Nor have I found a thread with links to everything you need to build. The cabinet should be done by Christmas.

    I could tell you what you need. I built mine. And had no clue at first.
