    Old Seeds, New Strains. High and Hazy in the Low Desert. Come on Son, grow some weed.

    This thread is starting off where my last thread left off. With disaster.

    I'll never try to run buckets in the summer again. 120 degrees and the AC just shut off right after I did a rez and bucket change, so the water was already warm to start with, the AC should have cooled it down.

    I lost almost everything. All the plants in dwc died, all my clones died, whole cloner full. All my vegging plants died, except for 3.

    Bubba Kush, a mystery, maybe Tahoe?, and a White Widow. The WW died a few days later.

    The 2 survivors have been recovering and I have rooted and planted clones going strong.

    It's really not so bad, I mean if the only strain I had was Bubba, I'd be happy, OH YEAH Bearfoot Love. Insert dancing bears here.

    here's a couple pics of the last run
    Could have been decent, but then look at those shitty roots.

    I've got rocks in my head these days. Set up the water saw and am putting together a lapidary shop out back. I'm going to make the most bitchin rock pipes. Amazing how cool rocks look once you cut them. I have enough great stones to make a few hundred pipes, but cutting them is one thing, gotta drill holes, and polish, and that takes diamond wheels for my bench grinder and a new drill press and diamond hole saws, etc.

    So excuse me when I put up pics of rocks. and you guys who know me, know that I can't do a thread without posting pics of my dogs and cats. But not dinner, nope, keeping it clean.

    These got planted but all died.



    This is a big piece of very gemmy microcrystalline quartz, chalcedony, agate. After I know what I'm doing, I'll get the nerve to cut this beauty.


    Had a great run on this little table, but... Thrips showed up and forced an early chop.

      more later

      It takes some work to do a good thread, and I went through my pic folder and just to go through and pick out a few and rename them took over 2 hours. I ended up with 100 pictures!

      I use a chromebook and it sucks for doing anything but web surfing. erasing exif data takes time to find out how and longer to do it, then get pixlr to be able to resize so I'm not sending big ass files...

      I've only done the pics I've already posted, so in a few days I'll try to get some more done. It'll take a few posts to get my grow up to date, but here is the picless version of what's going on in paper thorn's grow.

      I retreated into the house with my dying plants and set up in the closet in my bathroom. Put my 205 watt LED in there.

      Planted 40 Mofo crosses, planted 4 C99 f2s, 4 Sour Diesel crosses, some Chem 4 crosses, and some old stuff I've had for years and a couple fem Cheese seeds.

      All the seeds that sprouted have been vegged and cloned. The last of those clones are still in the cloner. I just planted 2 SD clones, almost 30 mofo clones, on and on.

      Just a few more and I'll flip everything and get this mom hunt on the road.

      I failed to meet my goals that I put in the first post of my last thread.

      So more goals, and a new set up, and new strains, soon as the mom hunt is done, i hope.

      Oh, and then I get a bunch of old seeds out yesterday and scuffed them up good and got them babies germing. I hope they all pop, put in about 40 or 50, I must be a glutton for punishment. It gets really crazy when you have lots of seedlings going.

      Why can't I just grow them out? Why do I have to clone and search and test? Why? Because I just know there is a keeper in them beans! I just know it!

      I'll talk about the goal and the hopes and dreams of being prepared for legalization when it passes this November here in AZ.

      Nice piece of Breccia



      I think this one is going to be beyond anything I can picture once it's cut. My knack is spotting the potential of the rocks I see in the rough.


      Lots of rockhounding trips getting planned here, but I have to come out of retirement and get back to work.

      impossible to have too many rocks.

            Ever the glutton for punishment, I set the buckets up again and when they were about a foot and a half tall and I had just flipped them, the AC went off on a 120 degree day and that was it. dead buckets again.



            so I cried, felt sorry for myself, was really pissed.
            then I saw this, rare for me to catch this cactus in bloom. they only last part of the day. made me smile.



            The whole grow was wiped out, i was at the chop, so the thrip plague that came with the heat wasn't the end of my crop, but was the end for most of the veg room.
            here's some Bubba getting trimmed.

                This pic should have been in the last post, but it doesn't really matter. this was a week or two before chop. last good pic, because the thrips started knocking them out one by one.



                Got this big dog.


                He's old, and a while back his back toenails split and he started chewing them off. He'll chew his toenails off and the end of his toes. hell he'll lick the skin right off.

                So I keep them wrapped most of the time, so he can't chew them. Here he is, a few weeks ago when he could still get up on the bed.

                He's so skinny. he throws up all the time, so he slowly becoming malnourished.

                He's had a rough night, and is whimpering a lot right now, hopefully he'll eat soon and be able to hold it down today.

                I'm just hoping to get his toenails healed before he dies. they were, but I left him unsocked for too long a few days ago and he he chewed one of his toenails half off. we were past any possibility of infection and now I'm really scared that it is getting infected. that would be the worst thing...



                OK, on the lighter side, or heavy lol, is Halle Barry, my cat. She's wonderful. Real sweetheart.

                  I like your style. Have you ever considered using an old window banger ac, converted to chill your water? If that seems interesting to you, google it, lot's of step-by-step directions. I think there might even be a thread here about it.




                  Photosynthetically active radiation, often abbreviated PAR, designates the spectral range (wave band) of solar radiation from 400 to 700 nanometers that photosynthetic organisms are able to use in the process of photosynthesis.

                    What's up Double Triple you know, that's probably a great idea. I have a little 5000 btu window unit on a shelf up in a shed, I should pull it down and see if I can diy a chiller.


                    In the mean time, I'm on track to get my game back. Clones are rooting on schedule. I've taken all that weren't big enough and retaken the few that mushed out of this big seed run I'm doing.

                    I said earlier that I had 40 mofo crosses, I really have 33.

                    So here's a list of what going off the top of my head:

                    33 mofo x white russian blueberry

                    4 Sour Diesel x can't remember, i'll go out to the room later and check

                    1 Chem4 x something

                    1 blueberry x grapefruit

                    4 C99 f2s

                    1 Burmese Kush

                    2 fem Cheese

                    They've all been cloned, the last few are rooting now.

                    -----------------------

                    I'm finishing up a divider wall for the veg, and as soon as i do that tomorrow, I'll be moving all the clones into the veg room. I'll segregate them by strain and put them in order so I can make sure there is nothing that I missed that i still need to clone.

                    Might keep the Burmese Kush clone in veg, because the mom of it still has not even attempted to grow branches after I took the clone.

                    Then just a little rearranging in the Bloom room, and I'll be flipping all these plants.

                    I set up one 600 watt hps today, yanked that fucking LED out of there. Maybe I'll put it over something flowering, since I'm going to be going vertical again.

                    Hmmm??, should I talk about my flowering plan?

                    idk, don't want to jinx it.

                    OK. I have 3 tables like the one in an above post. My original plan was to have them side by side, with walkways in between, 600s or 1Ks over them. Just don't feel like I did very well doing a couple three vert grows, though I've done well with vert before. So I got to kick this vertical's ass.

                    So the 3 tables will be set up in a triangle, with 3 600s near the corners. Towards the end of the tables. The tables are 4 1/2' to 5' long. These have plants in pots of coco. Drain to waste. So each table will have 2 600 shining sideways at them.

                    Not to waste space, a big plant will be in the center of the triangle and will be surrounded by 3 600s. Sometimes in a dwc bucket, sometimes in coco. I'd like to think of it as Heath style in the middle, but have no fantasies of getting Heath yields from it.

                    I just need to pull 3 elbows+ from it.

                    That won't happen this coming run, as who knows, maybe i'll have males everywhere and the girls could suck. Seed run risk.

                    This next part comes from being locked into low plant counts. After these seed runs, I'll be just using my own patient's plant counts. Right now I have a couple friends who are also caregivers who are adding to the plant count so I can do this mom hunt. They'll be doing their own thing soon, and my plant count will drop back to 60.

                    I'll be staggering the tables to chop 1 table every 20 days.

                    I will need at least 12 strains. So 12 moms.

                    I think I need a backup vegging mom of each, so 12 backup moms.

                    24

                    4 on each table flowering. 3 tables. = 12

                    36

                    4 vegging maybe 2 gal pots, next up

                    4 vegging 1 gal pots

                    44

                    4 clones

                    48

                    that leaves 12 for small seed runs, extra clones, new strains, etc.

                    I think I have figured out when to take clones, a couple weeks in cups, a while in 1 gallons, then to 2? maybe bigger.

                    Anyway, those times will be flexible as I learn just how big or how long I have to veg to make plants that will make a QP each. Every time. lol, throw in different strains, you know I'll get so confused.

                    So I'm coming up with a chart on the wall for each set of 4 plants from clone to chop.

                      Oh, I applied for a post harvest assistant job at a local dispensary.

                      Did not get the job. They were kind enough to send sorry it wasn't you emails out. So I thought, that's nice, I wonder if they'll answer a question?

                      I replied with a thanks for letting us know comment and asked what they are looking for in a candidate.

                      She said she was overwhelmed with folks who simply want to work in this industry. and it was an extensive process to choose one. I had gotten a phone interview with her, but was not called in to interview further.

                      Here's what she told me in her reply.

                      "I am overwhelmed by the number of resumes I have gotten from people who just want to work in this industry. What will set you apart is a great cover letter with a focus more on the job you are applying for and why you want the job and to work for us versus simply wanting to work in this industry. Having a good work background is more important than having experience in cannabis. Having general horticulture/plant experience or schooling is also a plus."

                        well, there were three, but the last white widow died shortly after.

                        started a bunch of seeds.

                          I have some more pics to upload. then a few new ones on the camera. hopefully I get them done and up this weekend. That will bring the diary up to date. well, it'll probably take me a week or two to get it up to date, but it'll be worth it.

                          there is a night and day difference in that closet a couple months ago when everything went to crap, and what's in the grow room now.

                          All the 45 seedlings have been cloned, planted in coco and all the 'moms' flipped 3 days ago. so about two months things will be back on track.

                          The new idea for layout looks like it is going to work great. got 3 600s fired up.

                          Already have spotted 4 females. All mofo crosses, (there are 33 of them). Also 4 males, but I'll wait a day or two before I yank them just in case I'm wrong, though I rarely am when it comes to spotting males. One of the mofos was tossing out pistils over a week ago in veg. It is # 9.

                          Awesome part is the 9 is the fastest vegger, has the best structure, nice short internode distance, and just looks super.

                          hopefully it's a keeper.

                            drilling with a shitty drill bit, new ones soon. then i'll be cooking with gas.


                            i'm making fun of the fluffy cat. But i shouldn't cause i just love my Halle Berry. Named her after the way she walks all cat-like. reminds me of Halle Berry as Catwoman walking into the moonlight at the end of the movie Catwoman.
