    It's been a while since we've last updated you on the progress of the 2019 Growoff's. All still well on track. We've been finalising things behind the scenes. Getting the genetics in order, getting prize sponsors onboard, sorting logistics etc. Here's what has been established. We welcome suggestions Getting your seeds Totemic Genetics has very kindly offered to sponsor his Chocolope seeds for this year's Growoff. A local online headshop has very kindly offered to distribute the seeds for us. You will be notified by PM on how to acquire your seeds. It will involve making a small order on the store and of course paying for the courier. You won't be paying anything for the seeds. Prize Categories Best overall plant - 1st, 2nd and 3rd Best trained plant - grower that has put their training techniques to best practice. Best Hydro Grow Best Organic Grow Biggest Cola Highest THC Content - 6 finalists from the Indoor Growoff and 6 finalists from the Outdoor Growoff will be selected to have their bud tested. All expenses paid. The finalist with the highest THC content will take home this prize. Do you guys think there could be more suitable prize categories not on offer here? We can't have any more than 6 categories per Growoff. Competition Procedure Each club will have a tab called Growoff Diaries. It's here where you will start your own Topic(thread) and log your entry. You'll be sent 6 regular Totemic Genetics Chocolope seeds to grow out. You'll need to try grow out as many plants as you can to get the 1 female which you will run as your entry. You can choose to start your plant whenever you want to within the competition starting date and closing date. Indoor growers can choose whenever they want to flip to flower. Only 1 female can be chosen and you cannot switch plants. Your chosen plant will be the 1 you stick with till harvest. You'll need to log all the plants you have germinated until you choose your final female which will then become the only logged plant. You'll need to update your diary at least once per week, each entry has to have at least one photo. The reason for this is to ensure that we'll be following the same plants throughout. For your final update before harvest please you need to have your plant alongside a tape measure and see if you can indicate the plants height in a photo with the tape measure. Overall height does not play a large factor in judging but it is nonetheless a factor. Then of course to provide as many pics at as many angles as possible before harvest. To qualify for the Biggest Cola prize you'll need to have an image where a ruler or tape measure is placed in front of the cola if you'd like to enter for the prize. Sponsors A few sponsors are onboard. We're just finalising prizes and this will be announced soon! Starting & Closing Dates These haven't changed Germination date for the Indoor Growoff will be 15/05/19 and the deadline will be 18/09/19 Germination date for the Outdoor Growoff will be 18/09/19 and the deadline will be 15/06/20 Judging Panel The judges will be: Myself Totemic Genetics Prize Sponsors If you guys have any questions please do ask

    I recently ordered a small bong from @Puff.co.za and a vaporiser from vapestore.co.za and was hugely impressed with the service from both. Both stores kept me updated with the order progress and answered questions very promptly. @Puff.co.za also included a bunch of surprise extras in the with order and they donate to Fields of Green for All! Very impressive from two local stores. I definitely recommend them both.

    Honestly it sounds like they knew there was an issue with the controller they sent you . I have received a few gavita controllers and the grow shops dont test them before they leave the shop so how would he know it had a faulty cable apparently. It sounds like it's a broken unit that's been returned and sent to you as a new one to keep you quiet . I would be extreamly pissed off and demand my money back . Growguru in PE has stock of the controllers , gthydro may have stock again as well. This is a unit was DOA so demand your money back or a new controller .

    A special arrangement can be made for the guys in the Cape. @Toby and @Justin Hemp will be able to distribute the seeds in the Northern and Southern suburbs. You can of course drive to where is suitable for them to meet you if you fall outside their area. Cape members, please indicate in this thread if you'd like to participate and arrange a pickup with one of our mods

    Or...since you are doing the organic thing. Chuck the lemon, bicarb, ph pen and all and just use tap water, aged for a day and nutes added. I havent checked pH for years. Really not necessary with organics. The microbes create the pH they want to live in.

    Howzit lekke ppl, I always seem to be growing something, as can be seen from the 'other' herbs. Had some swazi bagseed germinate between the basil and chillis in Spring 2018 and voila. Largest remaining female now bearing decent heads, especially as she's in very sandy soil and does not recieve enough sun. Top dressed with my own compost and stuck to seagrow once a week, finishing her off with molasses to fatten up a bit. 1st pic Dec 18(let's see what happens) 2nd pic Feb19(almost 2m tall) 3&4 heads (smelling awesome) Now about 1 or 2 weeks away from harvest, checking every day. Won battles against aphids, worms and spidermites. Happy to say they all died horrible deaths...ha,ha,ha. Had to brush up on a lot of stuff from nutes (organic and chem) to adjusting water ph and fighting all the goggas. Glad I joined this forum, learnt a lot. Thanks a million guys and gals. Gonna do a larger scale outdoor grow. Babies allready germinated, will post pics soon. Cheers vir eers Sent from my SM-A500F using Tapatalk

    The simplest recommendation is wait another 3 weeks. Winter is well on its way. We are heading into a sweetspot now. Those temps already dont sound problematic. Cannabis likes growing in the range you say imo.

    If they leave me alone and I can legally grow out 12 plants or so at home for personal consumption, I don't really care what happens regarding licensing. @12 plants though, I'd have to grow some outdoor monsters :) Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk

    Joe, I'm no expert (far from it) but just do your research before spraying neem oil on your flowering plant as I have read there can be 'side effects'... but yeah, no way of knowing until you try it yourself I suppose 😊

    Do some reading on Google on the "food soil web" It will give you a new perspective on organics and what the goals of organics are. Feeding the microbes, not the plant.

    Alright so I've still been in contact with Gavita, such lovely people over there. Speaking with Joeren and just gave him a voltage reading of the controller. To my estimation it should be pushing 15V when you take a reading, I took a reading and it gave me 8.63V something redonkeylous like that. This only reads for a few seconds till the controller goes into an overload warning, the controller then only pushes 3.11V. So I'm no electrical fucking wizard but if I stick my shafts on a 15V output component, shouldn't it read 15v on the multimeter?? Sent from my G3312 using Tapatalk

    Howdy folks, first post here, been lurking for a bit, not really one for introducing myself and also haven't been on a local grow forum since BelowTheLion had a grow forum...so.....eh...howzit👊. Recently run into some issues with root aphids, so thought it appropriate to communicate with local communities in order to see what methods people have used in the past to treat infestations, as well as share my experiences. * Currently Day 25 of Flower at posting(11/04/2019) Setup: Mars Grow Tent(Total Grow Space - 2.4mx1.2mx2m) 1 x Extractor(700m3/hr - 11.67m3/minute) - Negative Pressure 600w HID(Sunmaster - Dual Spectrum [Flowering Period Only]) 2 x 45l D.W.C Reservoirs 2 Plants per res.(125mm Net Pots with Hydrotron/LECA) ScroGged(Utilised Grow Space - 1mx1.4m) Strain: 4 x Green House Seed Co. A.M.S.(Identical Cuts) Preface: For the record, I had some how allowed myself to be fooled by the idea that subterranean pests wouldn't really be a factor in hydroponics, especially Deep Water Culture, but boy was i mistaken, so please, don't fool yourselves with this idea guys. If anything, in my resulting opinion, the hydroponic environment can actually be more conducive to certain pests growth when comapred with its media/soil counterparts, however, on the flip side, much like dealing with nutrient burns or P.H. issues, hydroponic systems have a greater potential for fast recover.(*Provided you are able to identify the issue/infestation early enough.) In hind sight, I can easily say that the first sign of my infestation actually started showing a little over a week ago, however I would only come to realise this 3 days ago. It started with me waking up to finding a mass of dead fliers on my tent floor, which I had simply assumed were just miggies trying to get to my light and moved on, however I would soon realise that these were actually the winged adults of an aphid infestation. I only realised the true issue when it came to nute change time, which is when I discovered a rather established Root Aphid infestation when going to siphon my reservoirs. *This is when Hydrogen Peroxide(H2O2) becomes your next best friend. Treatment: Day 1: Sprayed with Ludwigs Insect Spray +. Flushed reservoirs with fresh water and tried to physically remove and wash off any visible aphids as much as possible. Filled reservoirs with P.H. balanced water and added 12ml(30% H2O2[Clicks - 30 Vol.]) per resivour. Only water/circulation pump running - aeration turned off to potentially try reduce H2O2 reduction to H2O. Day 2: Sprayed with Ludwigs Insect Spray +. Added 5ml(30% H2O2[Clicks - 30 Vol.]) to each reservoir. Day 3: Flushed reservoirs with fresh water and tried to physically remove and wash off any visible aphid debris as much as possible - can clearly see that the infestation is not thriving like it was. Added normal flowering nute mix Aerators back on(*System to run as normal) I definitely feel that my initial knock of the infestation has been successful, however it is crucial that I ensure that I keep on top of this infestation by inspecting my rootzone multiple times a day when possible as well as spraying Ludwigs Insect Spray + to ensure that any crawling/flying aphids are exterminated and unable to continue their life cycle.(I have had great success with Ludwigs Insect Spray + for canopy/foliage pests). If I see any signs of the root aphids getting a grip again, I will repeat the steps from day 1 and 2(H2O2 Volume to be determined). *Yellow fly paper would also be extremely beneficial at reducing winged flier survival success rate *It is crucial that anyone reading this post realises that these are my experiences with a Deep Water Culture Hydroponic system, and that if you encounter root aphids in a soil-type medium, H2O2 will destroy any organic organisms in your medium, if at a strong enough concentration, beneficial organism or not. Ensure that you consider this and research accordingly before taking this as word. *Please also realise that the effects of root aphids will most likely show as a nutrient deficiency first, unless the rootzone infestation is noticed before hand by the grower. Any experiences or input would be much appreciated - substantiated or opinionated <3.

    @Gnome benzene is carcinogenic and properly toxic. Unless you're 100% sure that your purging process leaves not a single trace of residual solvent, using benzene is seriously risky. As far as I'm aware it's almost impossible to get rid of all residual solvents using basic purging methods. Especially for people starting out, its best to stick with food grade ethanol as its safe for consumption. Not denatured, food grade. It's more expensive than the other solvents but we're trying make meds here so there shouldn't be a compromise IMO...

    Ah who am I kidding. Of course I'm picking a fight. Perhaps I should clean up my approach then so that we can keep it in everyones interest and constructive, albeit super critical. You see, I'm a nobody in the cannabis industry. I also have no aspirations to rise to anywhere. I am however an activist, determined to see the plant being freed for everyone. It has been criminal to incarcerate people for the possession of the plant. The court has given us the leave and partially decriminalised cannabis, which is a massive leap toward freeing the plant. Monetizing the plant is not freeing the plant, but rather transferring its captivity. All I see when I look at a co-op setup like Canapax, is an obscure attempt to recapture the plant by capitalising on it, capsulating it along traditional medicine lines, needing to be prescribed by such a healer? To what end? Making money? It is at best a poor coverup at an attempt to adopt the current black market trade and call it legitimate because of...?... titles, disribution points? Being the main oke? The first co-op? All I see is organised crime happening under the guise of "contracts", "permits", "licenses"... Where is this paperwork? Who vetted it? Approved it? How is it in line with current legislation? How are Canapax franchises already marketing cannabis? Exactly? I have asked Mr de Beer these questions and a few others this morning. I have hundreds more, but the devils advocate in me can wait patiently. Mr de Beer has a history with suspect permits/licenses in the past. Went to court and faced dismissals. The dismissals are now claimed as a victory although clearly weren't when reading through the judgements. It does seem very reasonable then to ask questions. Not as opposition, but for clarities sake. Instead of getting a single answer to very simple questions, mnr de beer decided he would rather posture that he thrives on opposition. Well, such arrogance and posturing means it hurts where I poked, doesn't it? Yes, in this situation specifically it seems that canapax is adopting some of what was driven by the late Dr Ambrossini whose input and work was phenomonal, and while the ConCourts ruling has not necessarily invalidated the legal loopholes that are being exploited here, It does certainly supercede these loopholes in its efficacy in actually freeing the plant. It does feel the late Drs work is being perverted for personal gain, while the decriminalisation has negated the need for this structure. It seems a blatant abuse of the Section 22 permit law. Cannabis heals on its own without needing diagnosis from a sangoma, or someone with a medical PhD. The only way the plant will ever be truly free, is when it costs nobody a cent, and nobody makes any money out of it. This is an unfortunate paradox I realize. The industry will become what it will become. I know I have absolutely no control over that. I am but one voice. I will remain vocal and present in my activism until the plant has been entirely freed for everyone. You see Russel. What would do everyone good is transparency with intention. I smell a rat. So prove me wrong. Sell me your idea. I would really like to know who benefits. The people, or white label organised crime? Its no secret who I am, and my story has never changed. Im here for the plant, not the money. My name is Tyrone Claassens, and I am Totemic.
