    This drop is going to be one of our craziest yet... Archive Seed Bank are a top tier US breeder renowned for their owner Fletch's integrity in both the community and breeding in general. This drop was a rerelease of some of the company's classics as well as the much sought after Moonbow crosses. I woke up at 5am on a Saturday to get this order in initially, and much of it was sold out within an hour. Unfortunately this drop also came at retail price (we don't get wholesale discounts on very new drops), so the prices will be a little higher, but we will be selling it close to our cost. I'll update this thread with the drop information once the package arrives (today or tomorrow). But just wanted to create the awareness, if you're thinking of copping something crazy - this may be it. Below are some Face on Fire which I finished running recently (The 3 phenos I got)... There will be a couple packs in this drop!

    Some of you guys might remember the daddy I chose last year, nicknamed "FruityPuke". This girl was selected from about 15 beans that got mixed up, mystery mom, FruityPuke male. The terps of this plant is a dirty berry, like diesel berry chem funk. She got the nickname FruityPoopz, a new potential mom in my stable, definitely going to make beans with her at the very least

    Trying out my first outdoor grow with bag seed (Swazi/TK cross) before forking out some $$$ for 3x Black Diamond, Glookies & Platinum GSC beans to test out this season. Planted very late (April)

    This! I have an OKC and a slurricane cut running at the moment. They are super sparkly and all, but I'm disappointed with the yield so far. I'm used to working with heavy yielding thai genes. Yet I do see major potential for working those lines further with an outcross and stabilisation thereafter. When I compare the inhouse and ethos to the older school Afghan and Thai lines I'm primarily working with, Humbolts GC and my own Chocolope cross, are just better built plants. I think both ethos and inhouse push out some crazy phenos. Their plants are good enough for me to explore them further, and improve them.

    Interesting read. Being on the other side of the audience as a breeder and reading this, I still find myself in complete disagreement with the prices some breeders are expecting for their seeds. Our exchange rate betrays us big time. I do suppose a certain amount of culture is influential, as well as the core motivation behind the breeding. Passion vs. Profit. The amount of sacrifice, time, dedication that goes into breeding a strain is worth something yes, but I cant bring myself to charging even R100 a seed. Even for a seed I know will grow into a world class plant.

    Hey all, So how about sharing some of your secrets, wondering if any of you guys have special mixes of stuff you like to use on your plants which you feel make a difference and how do you use it? I know some of the common stuff is kelpack, silicon, various nutrients via foliar spray, Triancontanol etc. Then you get the stuff like trichoderma which can help keep roots happy and mycorrhizal fungi as well which you'd generally mix in with the medium or apply via a "soil" drench. Your various bloom boosters, which is generally MPK. Curious as to what you find works for you and how you apply it.

    I'm seeing the plant is struggling with a hot medium. Only way out is through and she will 'grow' into the soil. Some plants just dont like a lot of nutrients, while others are just sluts...

    So this is what my current feminized run looks like. Plants between 3 and 5 weeks of flower. I have 3 different chocolope NL phenos, and Chocolope NL #1 is the pollen donor, her one branch was treated and the other left untreated with STS. Then there is an OKC, Slurricane, And Green Crack. Pollination has started. ...

    Personally, all the mycoroot, definitely tops. I even go as far as to rub my seeds with mycoroot before planting, and then again for every transplant going forward. Additional silicon during veg, especially when topping more than once, I find very useful. EM Pro-soil I add to every feeding. Otherwise, I try not to add anything else whether I'm using BioBizz or GHE nutes. Apart from the above, I trust these nutes to be sufficient.

    You can definitely mainline clones, although it won't be as symmetrical as a plant grown from seed because clones would stagger their nodes as they are not the main stem of the plant. You'll notice on a normal, untrained cannabis plant that the nodes on the main stem are symmetrical and the nodes on the branches are staggered. So I rate you just gotta choose the top two nodes, of which one will be lower than the other, and just train them to grow level at the canopy.

    Hi All, My partner and i have a small scale(24mΒ²) fruiting chamber in which we produce gourmet(only) mushrooms. Growing mushrooms is quite an easy procedure, BUT.... the capital input is high, it is super time consuming and your are fighting against contamination which is EVERYWHERE!!! I have no doubt that the CO2 a bag can produce is viable, but i don't believe this is the best method of CO2 application. also, it seems you would need to turn the air exchange off(exhaust etc) to achieve the adequate PPM . I wonder if you would be able to build a "box/Tote"' with the bags inside that feeds directly into the tent with the cool CO2 rich air drawn in to offset the volume pushed out of the exhaust.

    For sure... I actually meant to add HSO (Humboldt Seed Organization) as an excellent budget breeder. I definitely respect HSO for that market. Fast Buds I've heard great things from, but my personal experience has been pretty negative so I just couldn't get myself to do it. I think I just got unlucky though, got some really terrible phenos from the beans I popped. Flowering at week 2... Mephisto are up there as the top tier autoflower breeder though, Mephisto and Nightowl are the top tier of autos.

    i agree lol... mostly. from what i can see on tv nowdays is still mostly joints... noobs that have no experience notice these things and kind of have what they see on tv as an idea in their head about how to consume it. Joints and bongs mostly. so as a beginner i might be inclined to start of with a joint or a bong as opposed to heavy vapes that look like something out of a space movie. kinda makes me wonder what the next step is from there? intravenous injection?? LOL ok ok ok that was a bit far fetched. but one thing my ex has taught me, is that just because we know what may be the best/ healthiest/ tastiest/ most enjoyable way to consume weed. but without the journey of learning and experiencing the different aspects of weed, one can learn how they best enjoy weed. and for me, starting at the top isnt the ideal way to introduce weed to a new person. and i love the taste of burning marijuana ... the hot coal on the tip of the joint... the smoldering of a fat bowl in a bong... the deep taste of the smoke and the after taste aswell... the taste of the paper and the caramelized flavour of the burning roach.

    You need to do what Prom said and plan your drying according to ambient temperatures and your actual bud. I just dried my f skittles last week, for a full 7 days.Here was my process: My buds were extremely dry when I harvested(as it should be, because you left the plant in darkness for 3 days without any watering right lol ;) Now, with the temperatures climbing into the 23's and RH decreasing , I had a problem, these buds were going to dry out too fast because I dont use anything special to dry,just hang em up in a dark room. What I did was, a budwash(water->bicarb->h202->water), and then a small soak for 5 mins in clean water. I then sundried on brown paper for around 10 mins a side until there were no water dripping.The buds gain some weight in water - then I hung them up. This slowed down my drying process and I only had snappy branches on day 6.The bud as been curing for a week now, and its smells like petrol cookie dough my gawd! πŸ™‚ I came up with the above because i fucked up my entire Fuel OG harvest last year, buy hanging up buds that were already dry and hadnt been washed, the buds dried in 3 days flat and the smoke was harsh cos of chlorophyl.An epic waste of money,time 😞

    She's about ready to come down, stellar plant, looking foward to run her this season outdoors as well as indoor. The smoke will have to be hella dissapointing not to keep her around as a clonenonly cut. Still smelling like diesel berries with that chem funk πŸ‡β›½

    Hi guys I sell my Mars 144 as I do a redesign of my grow areas. I bought the lamp 3 Jan 2020, so still some left of the 3 years SA warranty. Lamp comes with card and slip from Hydroponics.co.za. The lamp is perfect for a 1.2x0.6x1.8 grow tent and has cooling included. Add fan for the tent and a inside oscillating one and you have a running system, very low heat lamp: This is exactly the lamp I sell. The lamp also comes with the correct distance to hang for Germination, Veg and Flower Stage, PAR measured! 😁😎 Mars says it is equivalent to 800watt.. i wouldn't go that far ^^ but the lamp draws in Veg 179 Watt and 269 Watt in Flower mode including ventilation. I would prefer pickup ^^ then I do not have to find adequate shipping package for courier. Lamp has not a single scratch, all LEDs are in working order.

    Yes and yes... Some Strains seem to hermie even when all growing parameters have met. That to me qualifies for crappy variety for example. Also some varieties just don’t have a nice terpene profile no matter what you as a grower do. But I guess taste differs from person to person. But I think in most cases it's mostly up to the grower. It takes time to be able to 'read' your plants and each strain likes different things. Meeting your plants needs and growing with passion is getting the best out of your plants.

    I have a feeling @Negus101 is getting a bit lost in translation, mixed with a little inflated ego and assumption. So here's the solid advice you need; you paid too much for this light, someone sold you dreams. You're not going to get your money back, cut your losses and sell this light at the price it's worth, which I would say is closer to the R3000-R4000 margin, when considering the Apollo 8 which is 256 true watts and is R5899 new.

    I have gone through many clip fans they dont last or move enough air. I use box fans got logik ones from game 3 year warranty R200 waa on special and more recently got SCE small box fans from checkers R250 think its 23 or 25cm. Box fans gets my vote

    @prom πŸ˜‚ That's settled then... Will go with the rain water. I have a 40,000L tank as a supply, so I won't have an issue there. Will also just leave the Activera on the shelf for now. πŸ€™ I'm looking at running a couple fans on either end of the greenhouse to keep the airflow up. I've heard that PM is a serious problem down here, but that prevention is the best remedy. Still have to look into Pests, PM and deficiencies. I know little to nothing about it all. Thanks again and I'm looking forward to the journey ahead and where it leads... hopefully it leads to some decently sized dense, dank budz. I'd be very happy with that

    Hi guys just an update on my plants. I had an additional led light....but seem to burn my leaves and then i switched it off. My autoflower(northen lights) flowering looks good. Think about 2.5weeks in

    @SkunkPharmThink its a good idea, believe many new growers would benefit from such a thread. Easy and manageble way to start your journey down the cannabis growing rabbit hole. An inexpensive way to get their toes wet, without the complexities and technical equipment of dwc and coco. They can grow their first plants and there after decide where they want to take it- soil, dwc or coco.

    AQSF takes a while to get working as its spores. Something like Sulphur will work far quicker. So you'd need to access the situation and use products accordingly.

    Much better dude. Don't be afraid to scratch the top 1inch of soil... Few roots grow there, so it's a good test to scratch the surface and see how moist your medium is... If the entire top inch is dry, you can feel confident that adding water/feed now is a good idea

    i guess this section is pretty bleak! i am sure some of us know a place or 2 that are pro cannabis/ or at least tolerate the use of marijuana on their premise. i love going to the great outdoors for a cheeky public smoke... nothing beats a hike with mates and a couple of fatties along the way. but i guess this section would be for more, closer to home kinda vibes. who knows of any places where okes can go grab a plate to eat and also enjoy a puff at the same place? a bar/weed vibe even... or just a venue that peeps can go and chill, and not feel nervous to spark up. Ill start with 2 places iv heard of. first is Sundowners in alberton. - bless their souls, i believe the place has shut down. another one i have heard of is Gerda's Kitchen at Injati. maybe i add a separate topic for the place. hows about a show of secret joints where we can meet up and be ourselves? make a new topic for each Venue and give the supporters some support too!

    I've had similar thoughts but it all boils down to interpretation, because if you live alone that alloiwance gets shredded in half allowing you only 4 plants/600g, they go on to define the max as being 8 plants/1.2kg for 2 adults, so using the argument of having 4 adults in the single household therefore merits the max being doubled won't stick because the max has been defined BUT there is more than enough ambiguity in the definition of a "household" to spin doctor the shit out of it in our favour (especially in this new day n age of subletting/house sharing) But there's many flaws, 8 plant limit would certainly make growing autos somewhat pointless - also what happens if you plant 8 trees in the ground and they take off growing 3m+? You could easily have 3kg growing on the branches & cop can say your 1 plant exceeds limits therefore we confiscating the other 7 even though you well within your plant limit. so yeah...alot of things would need to be clearly defined to avoid bullshit, needless to say we will overcome anything thrown at us, the fight has only begun brothers

    Yo @TheUltimateNoob , does your friends aunt know the origins of where she originally found the beans. Do you have any information about the male that pollinated the bud? Is it a pure inbred line, any chance of hybridization. Pure DP should already be a bit more stable in my opinion and would probably require less work than imagined, if it is actuallt DP. The thread you mentioned is on the breeders group, here is the link

    420sa put it on hold due to delayed results one of the months. It went over into entries for another month, as well as the Cannabist sponsor issue, which led to some unforseen issues. If I'm not mistaken, I think it stopped for just 1 month, and should be continuing this month... Just waiting on @420SA to get back to everyone with what's up. I'm sure they'd appreciate the sponsor bro! Mad Respect. Sent from my POCOPHONE F1 using Tapatalk

    Thanks bud, really appreciate it. Yeah the colours are crazy. Will definitely be trying her again at some point to see if I can get some better bud growth. So if you look at the 2 diary links I posted for the photos you will get the idea. But I followed 2 slightly different approaches. 1. The Bubba Kush. >> https://growdiaries.com/diaries/61752-bubba-kush-totemic-grow-journal-by-live-canna I topped her twice. I basically topped and then pulled down branches in hope the lower node would catch up, which it did. Then the lower node, on that (lower) node also grew up, whilsts I kept pulling down the uppermost node. So thats where I got the odd shape, but she is relatively flat. 2. The Bubbleberry. >> https://growdiaries.com/diaries/61754-bubbleberry-totemic-genetics-grow-journal-by-live-canna This lady I topped, and then pulled the first two growths (once grown a bit) flat as if I was basically mainlining her, but without the sticks on the actual branches. So purely by LST. Then all the lower nodes on those 2 main branches starting shooting up and I topped those again creating more branches and every time pulling down. Then at some point I basically let go, and let them rise up to create the shape she is now. You can see this all quite clearly in the grow diary. Let me know if that makes sense. Happy to help with what I have learnt so far in my first proper grow. I must say though, I feel like what I did to the Bubbleberry worked a lot better. But this is all plant and strain dependent also. The bubbleberry is IMO definitely more on the Sativa side, while the Bubba Kush is more indica dominent.
