Thanks Zeez. They are stretching like crazy, it’s truly a glorious sight. They don’t smell too strongly yet, though I’m sure THAT will change in a month or
two! Do you guys ever smell them from the front of your house etc?
Yup looks like everyone is having a good season so far. So long as you have lots of water everything's ok. No mold, No rot, No caterpillars. Going good.

Now that it's been legal here, I wish we has better access to genetics. Like farmers markets where we could buy quality clones.

Perhaps even a local cannabis plant society, like people hold for non-cannabis.

I tried making a local Breeders and Growers group on facebook once we became legal where I wanted to start trading clones/seeds.. I had a little interest.. about 200 members, Someone wanted some clones I went and gave him a list and was going to just give him them to get started but he ghosted me, wasnt really local but north shore vs. south shore... so local enough... But I noticed either facebook was the wrong platform for it, or it was too early/too localized. Maybe a Mass regional or new england would be better to start a main chapter and branch off to smaller towns/areas from there.

Ive since deleted facebook so Im not really sure what happened from there, I think I made the 2nd most senior member or a buddy of mine the admin before I left... Im sure its the same or worse by now, but there was automated MJ news postings which fed organic conversation for awhile so who knows

I guess some grow shops have started selling them out the back door. I got spider mites from our local shop so I really try and stay away as much as possible.

Yup, Ive had infestations from friends clones, I stick to seeds now no matter what... If I really had to, that clone is going swimming before it gets close to my house.

You have to know and trust the person you get them from. I have a friend who gives me the original GG4 every year. Never had a problem.

Have you ever heard of "Gene Traders" ? They have several events a year in MASS. Mostly clones and seeds. There are only a few vendors there that are trustworthy, but it's a source. Over the years people have shown up with real deal elites.

On the topic of dunking clones to sanitize/disinfect: does anyone have a method they use when taking clones from outdoor plants, and bringing those clones indoors?

Nah havent heard of Gene Traders, Ill have to check them out sounds interesting... What are some of the vendors you find trustworthy if you dont mind mentioning?
Also, Id be interested in an original GG4 cut... Ive got 4 "Gorilla Glue" from canuk/msnl.... Highly skeptical of the genetics, but the plants are doing good, I just get a bad feeling from the companies canuk/true north seed bank

Dont have a method, but I would most likely just do a 3% hydrogen and/or bud washing ingredients like lemon/baking soda and then plain water to finish .. Never really had that situation come up, just the reverse....

Are you referring to bringing them in from the outside to finish flowering once they already have buds?

No, not when they are with buds.

What I mean to say is: to take clones off of outdoor plants that are in the vegetative stage, and bring them indoors to take root, veg and flower.

Oh Duh right that would make a lot more sense context wise... Yeah in that case I would probably treat it the same as any other "outside"/friends clone then.

Gene Traders has been holding events in Mass for four years. I went to one in the beginning near Springfield that had about 30 vendors with seeds, clones, edibles and flowers. You can find Gene Traders on FB and they have an event coming up on 8-30 in Milbury. More recent events have been seed and clones only. Trustworthy vendors are people I know through another forum. I know some who purchased "clones" that were just a cutting stuck in soil with no roots. Others had problems with bugs or legit clones

The original GG4 is from Jose Whales. I am growing that now.

fack doods dealin w some PM. While my new fungicide was in the mail for me to start prevention, I start seein some of that white powder bullshit on some leaves and it spread to part of another plant. The fungicide isn't working like I'd like so far, so I ordered some potassium bicarbonate from amazon to treat it. Get out there and spray somethin!!

I have used Potassium Bicarbonate (aka Green Cure) with not so great results. Try Serenade, you should be able to find it at any garden store.
Spray after the sun is not shining directly on it.

I've been spraying mainly just B.t and twice with 3% peroxide and Just pointed my fan toward the worst/bushiest spot... It cleared up all the WPM issues I had been dealing with a month ago Although I think it was mainly just the 'constant' rain we were getting and not getting much wind or time to dry out and have the leaves get unstuck from one another.

I havent seen any in weeks now though, and its mainly the B.t I do once a week, the peroxide I havent done in at least 3 weeks or so. Good luck brother.

I think it's something environmental and would trim it off. Mold or fungus maybe, surprising bc it's been so dry.

The rest of the plants look very healthy.

Any ideas of what this is? Only the ends of a couple branches of one of my Dinafem OG Kush’s.

Could it be Phosphorous or potsssium deficiency?

I do have a grape cultivar 15 feet away that has black rot, but this is only affecting these few leaf sets so I’m doubtful black rot is the cause.
I had this problem last year, I think it was phosphorus issue
