Lots of great content on this forum. Glad I found it. Hope to contribute something good. We are always running something small scale. What we have right now is an auto experiment from an unknown breeder guy. Don't hold your breath. "Snowryder" is almost 3 ft tall. That should not be. The other 3 plants are huge but aren't spitting the nug or flower size we would like to see. Huge = over 6ft. They are outdoor. Our weather is mild mild so we can grow through the winter outside. Then again, I have another strain that I'm growing would have been yanked out of veg had I not known what it was about. Sparsest thing on the planet until it buds up. We'll just have to see what happens with those autos... But damn are the bud sites little bitty. Anyway what else is going on? Blue Cookies and Girl Scout Cookies are in flower. I've got some Lemon Skunk #2 that's doing pretty good.

Been doing this for a while but run into problems like everyone else from time to time. Don't know everything, but I can hold my own I guess. Growing style is a mixed bag. I like aero for clones. Dirt for everything else. Inside lights are LEDs. I went the cheap route with viparspectra and supplement with a couple of small blurples. Could probably get better results with a 500 million watt system, but I'm old and really don't give a shit about making the cover of High Times anymore. I really like outside stuff because uh tall. Big is good. I really like naturally grown plants that look like Christmas trees lol. But it's sort of not practical to have a yard full of trees. So we keep a few scattered about here and there in 5 gal grow bags out of the line of sight of prying eyes. Most of what I grow is short and mainlined though.

It's time to start laying some more beans down. I think I'm going to do HydroRed's 3Thirteen - Sin City Juice. I'm also putting down Bubba Gump, LA Confidential, and Astro Kush. Nothing large scale. Just looking for a good plant from each strain.

I'll get some pictures when the sun comes up I guess. Who wants just words? :D Anyway heading for the baggies and paper towels now.

Some stuff. Outdoor grow... 5 whole plants. 4 are autos. All are in flower. We live in the deep deep South so usually we can go year round outside. Inside that's a Lemon Skunk #2. I'll get better at this taking pictures thing.

Knock em dead, kid. That will bring stellar jars.

Words is good. Stories welcome.
LA CON is my girls favourite. Is that going outdoors?,,, never seen that.
Looking forward to the journey , CJack.
:) Thanks... need some stellar jars. I'll try to take some better pictures tomorrow. I have a humboldt seed company plant finishing up outside that is kind of pretty. Those "autos" are taking forever though. But if they bud out like they are forming up, those colas are gonna be huge. Hoping... lol :)))

First off let me say Sin City Juice is straight fire... excellent choice... love everything you got going on

Fill me in on the Bubba Gump though... haven't seen that one in my travels! What's the heritage?
A buddy of mine swears by anything 3Thirteen. PLEASE tell me where I can find Grease's Pieces. He crossed GG#4 with Peanut Butter Breath! Can you imagine the fire that comes out of those plants? Come on now. I'm almost beggin. I NEEEEEEEDZ those in my life.

Bubba Gump... old school strain. It's Bubblegum x Pre 98 Bubba Kush. Great for sleep. I've had this one around since 2014ish. Hoping for some nanners in this run so that a branch or two can be pollinated.

Idk I'm a kush freak. Love the way they grow. Love the way they smoke.

I am saving my pack for the last run before I die. Unless someone offers me 70+ virgins I won’t part with this pack

I want to say Great Lakes Genetics and DC Seed Exchange Both have Greases Freebies... @HydroRed?

I love me some Kush too... that sounds like a great cross!

Also your friend has good taste if he's down with the 3thirteen... tell him to find the forum! I won't have to imagine much longer on the Greases Pieces.... mine is going into flower as soon as I get caught up on trimming and rearranging! Might even be today if I can get my shit together...

It was a freebie with any fem purchase at at least one of the banks @jaguarlax mentioned but unfortunately there's no more of @HydroRed fems for sale anywhere anymore.... we're all waiting with bated breath for his next drop

My buddy got his from DCSE and the Sin City Juice ones were the freebies. He's got the Sin N Juice. Don't really care about fem/reg but that cross... and you've got it growing... Damn :) But dude has SO many seeds he'll never grow them all... ever never. I just pay him for what he's got into them.

If @HydroRed drops Grease's Pieces or variant of it? I'm all about it. I like the guy from DCSE Paul. He's nice and stuff which is cool to find in today's asshole of a world. Hope he gets them too on the next drop.

Anyway, just looking forward to these seeds popping and seeing what they are all about.

Looks like I'm harvesting a purple plant tomorrow. Cola nugs are about 50% closed up and not throwing any more flowers. I have three clones from this plant that are getting stuffed into 5 gal grow bags and thrown outside. Our light outdoors is just about 12/12 now so it's sort of perfect. Had these three plants in 1gal containers going for a micro grow, but this strain isn't built for it. Cal/Mag def started to show up but that's not possible. So worst time to do it, but transplanting during flowering on these is a must. They've got to be root bound and not able to get at what they need.

I'll post the pics up before I give her a whack lol

Ok this was a weird one. I started these plants out in small containers to do a micro grow inside under leds. They started showing cal/mag issues or ph lockout. I supplement Earth Juice Cal/Mag with every feeding and ph to 6.3 like it's a religion. Every third feeding is cal/mag - ph adjusted water only. No way for a build up to happen. Buuuuuuuuuuuut brown spotting on the fans. Had to move them into 5 gal bags in the middle of flowering. Was gentle with the transplant and didn't mess with the roots at all. Fed through some Growex at 8 tsp/gal to shoot some juice to the roots and a smidgen of N to the rest of the plant. Reversed the issue. I guess root bound is bad whoops. I have a couple others/different strains that are doing fine in the little containers and putting together 1 piece colas from top to bottom. Guess these plants have different needs or something.

Ok so I guess I've been doing this all wrong. Went and looked at some of y'alls diaries and I'm like throwing random shit up while you guys are like tracking stages of the grow and getting all scientificky with it. Call them pieces of shit or whatever but I have a couple of viparspectra P2020 or 2000 or something and some supplemental chinese blurples. I figure between two substandard pieces of shit running next to each other one will give me what the other won't or something hopefully close to a decent light spectrum. Moving them to a larger space to set up for the seeds that are germing. I guess I'll start throwing down a diary like the rest of the world as soon as I get something to take pics of like popped beans.

Some guys are really good at Journaling their grow. Then you have dudes like me that just picture dump and bs through most of mine.
Either way its up to the individuals style and what you want to accomplish with it.
Can't wait to see what you get going man, good luck!
