    I think this was directed at me, but you replied to the other guy who posted that video.

    I know my grow isn't the most efficient, Ive said this numerous times throughout the thread. I haven't hit the magical (some say pointless) measurement of 1gpw, yet. I've never claimed to be doing anything unbelievable, or have some crazy new technique to grow monster plants.

    I just wanted to show my garden off to some people who might appreciate it, because I don't tell anyone in my real life that I'm growing, so this is my only outlet to connect with people.

    Some people don't fucking understand this though its the way my parents raised me.... "if you dont have something nice or constructive to say then FUCK OFF"

    I'm still here and I think what you're doing is damn respectable.

    I wasn't bashing you just pointing out to that jack wagon that what you were claiming is not unheard of. Do your thing I enjoy reading your stuff!

    I'm learning a lot @PKHydro I think you and I run an op that has many similarities. It's fun to watch. Keep it up!

    g'day PK,
    This thread is the best & in all honesty i wanna see more.
    When is the next grow starting?

    PKHydro Well-Known Member

    Thanks man, that means a lot. The grows have not stopped, just not much new to post. I've been spending a lot of time away from the garden this summer, with fishing trips and some scouting trips for the upcoming hunting season.

    I'm growing a few new strains still, PeakSeedsBc Sweet Skunk and Skunkberry, the inlaws almost killed them off while they were babysitting. However I've nursed them back and am now sexing them out. The remaining females are going in 20gal ROLS.

    I'm debating on taking some clones from the 2 best SS females, and 2 best SB females and throwing them in the hydro setup to see what they can do.

    Thanks for all the kind words man! Honestly looking at your op has inspired me to try and become more efficient. I plan on eventually moving my grow into a new building, and I've been drawing up tons of plans. If it happens I'll be picking your brain about cooling and heating my area, you and your chill king are on another level. Wish I was in the states so I could see that fucking thing in person.

    Well a bit of an update is in order.

    I've been having issues. I took some time away from the garden this summer while I spent a bunch of time recharging my batteries out in the bush, fishing and camping.

    However this means I've left the garden in the no so competent hands of my inlaws. The ended up killing off my original mom of the so called violator Kush that I've been running. I got another cut, but it's now throwing balls in flower. I had one crop that was seeded pretty good, and this next crop is 2 weeks in and throwing balls again. I'm debating whether or not I want to spend the money on electricity finish this crop. I could always turn the whole thing into drysift or bubblehash, just don't know if it worth the work.

    Unstable phenos are a deal killer, I'd say that unless you already have people lined up who want the dry sift or whatever it's going to be an uphill battle all the way.

    If you were close to Colorado I could help you out!

    Ashame your inlaws have fucked things up for you. Good vibes getting it back to the way you run things....

    Yup unstable genetics are no bueno, it's beyond frustrating. I'm on the verge of just chopping everything, doing a serious clean, as I'm sure there's fucking pollen everywhere, and starting over with the Skunkberry and the Sweet Skunk that I've got from PeakSeedsBc.

    I know you'd hook me up if you could. Much appreciated.

    Honestly I kind of expected it and wasn't too surprised or upset. It's their garden as well and they get their meds from the same place, I just run it 99% of the time. I know they tried their best and I'm stoked we managed to get any bud at all, seeded or not.

    My father in law has had a stroke so he gets kinda funny every now and then. He'll do things sometimes that just doesnt make sense to anyone else but himself. Unplugging fans or pumps, or turning heaters on in the middle of summer.

    And my mother in law is a bit of a space cadet, can't really rely on her to do what she says she'll do. She means well, but is a bit like a child, in that she'll get busy and sidetracked and completely forget that she has to go down and take care of chores in the garden.

    Thanks for the positive vibes though, I'm sure I'll have it back up and running strong in a bit!

    All you have to do to kill pollen is get it wet.

    No worries, lots of people have helped me get where I am and I like paying it forward.

    Look at the size of these ridiculous things. I think they waited a bit to long to flip over to flower, one top is smashed into the roof 20160919_181001.jpg 20160919_181017.jpg

    You`d be shocked how ineffective them chick`s with tiny dinkys winkys are, a lot of the time you pull them down and find the pollen is still in the sack or the pollen does not seed the flowers

    Just a few seeds is ok some ;people seem to think seeding a small part of the plant makes the weed stronger the male pollen is the 2nd strongest part of the plant not all bad
