    hi all, not much time here but i wanted to mention a couple things. i wouldnt like this forum to dilute or detract from any of the existing growers forums. i mostly agree with microbeman's post - in many ways the organic forum is a good model for what could happen here in the botany/advanced science forum in the sense that the scientific side of organics and microbes is firmly entrenched over there and is now highly respected by all.

    if we can do the same thing over here and build a resource about botany/plant behavior and how it can be applied to our grows and growing environments then that could be a great resource. sorry it's first thing in the morning here and im possibly not explaining it very well.
    later - and thanks again to all

      Thanks for putting this forum here, you OFC guys think this is the right place for my plant biology notes? If so, please could someone review them for accuracy as they were part of a learning process - not a finshed article as such. And there's gaps to fill of course.

      Also, want a bunch of char science?

      An article kind of like

      Water retention - reference

      Crop increases - reference

      Controlling pH - reference

      etc. I'll just do it post by post breaking down the properties of char and the science supporting these.

      I think we should be firm about references - anecdotal evidence and opinions only to support and discuss the underlying science - or this forum becomes yet another huge volume of anecdotal inaccuracies, old wives tales and meanderings.

      Thoughts?
      Mr F, i think any contributions you can make on plant behavior, plant science and botany would be a great asset. any advanced plant subjects you feel are relevant to most growers would belong here, but if it is a subject that only relates to e.g. organic growing then imo it would be better off posted in the organic forum, char may fall into this category but you probably know that better than me.

        some more thoughts on how this might best work. remember im not in charge so these are just my suggestions

        1. For those that are here mainly to learn then please read the whole thread before asking any questions - this will help avoid asking questions that have already been answered in the previous posts.

        2. For those mainly here to contribute and discuss, please list all abbreviations clearly in the OP. when disagreements occur and persist, (and im sure they will ) please agree to differ before discussion and debate becomes argument and insult.

        3. on anecdotal evidence and home experiments/findings - please be realistic about their limitations, for example if you use 4 different fertilizers in your soil, you cant really draw conclusions about the performance of any one of them without a lot of testing and side by sides. each grow will be different environmentally so recognize that these will all be factors that confuse any findings.

          It would be great if threads were required to cite references.

            haha, thats exactly what my point in that thread was. I got sick of fighting with that dude. I got so much negative rep from warning people that, that technique is dangerous in the wrong hands and will destroy yields. I'm sorry your friend had a bad run, but glad to hear that news. I'm proud I stood my ground against all of the shit talking I experienced there.

            I'm excited for this forum! great idea OP and Gypsy and any mods involved in the decision.

              This might also be a great forum for peer review or rather, preview. Maybe someone could post a condensed how-to thread on proper technique in real world conditions for a side by side or any home based experiment. Advice could also be given on setting up new home based experiment.

              If they are done correctly on all fronts and meet the icmag peer review they could get a sticky.... or a cardboard cookie. I realize the strife this could cause. Threads that don't make it could just go to their appropriate forum for discussion rather than a sub forum here.

              Just a thought.

                i think that it is a great idea as well-and look foward to some interesting reading, and perhaps the occasional contribution.
                Depending on how things develop-it might be good to have an editor/editors to knock things into shape-take out the noise and the bullshit.

                  Can't promise I'll be able to contribute right away, but I'm here to learn and take my knowledge to the next level.

                  Thank you for creating this forum.

                    Excellent addition to the International Cannagraphic Forums! Thanks guys!
                    I have been discriminated against and banned twice, without breaking any rules, from ICMAG for sharing links relating to discussion threads.


                    This is open discrimination over posting INFOWARS links due to manufactured lies in the media.


                    I will NO LONGER BE POSTING unless I GET SUPPORT.

                    If you find the research articles, past and recent news stories, statements, and discussions informative and beneficial please respond with your thoughts, support and questions. Also please send a PM to Gypsy Nirvana and let him know your thoughts.

                    I was recently warned this week by Gypsy Nirvana not to post links. Thanks for the Karma, but I am about to be banned again it looks like!

                              Too bad the forum did not turn out as originally planned. Spurr and Mr Fista are rolling around in their pseudograves seeing all the pseudoscience from pseudoteachers which filled up the forum. Life, I guess. (my rant for 2017]
