Freaking HUGE... what do you think was your biggest improvement this year for plant health? Amino/micro foliars? Soil balancing?

I don't know if it's just me but your plants look wayyy bigger then last year, killing it!

Things look ok but actually plant health was better last year. mites really did a number on us this year, although i think that may be a result moreso than a cause. This year we did no feeding except weekly foliar, last year we also did weekly root drenches. I also think the living mulch we used last year was beneficial to the plants health, but have no proof besides comparing to this year when we used straw instead.

2 main reasons reason our plants are so much bigger this year than in 2016:

1. they were sprouted 2 weeks earlier and planted in the ground 2 weeks earlier. This made a huge difference in their ability to build a big frame before flowering set in.

2. genetics this year are monsters. mostly growing my own Ancient OG f2's and AOG crosses which I bred for size and yeild, plus a few other strains from different breeders which are known to get big, like the Kaya's Dream from south fork.


Next year I plan to smash all my previous seasons by combining all the things i have learned... early start, monster genetics, big soil, proper feeding, good support...

we have never confirmed russet mites at this property before this season. I have plenty of experience with spider mites from growing indoors for years. I am well aware of what improvements should be made in our IPM program next year. is that why you are asking?

thanks! yah i'm really happy with some of our plants this year, definitely some of the biggest plants i have ever seen. Some of the AOG's are over 15 feet wide. I will be sure take plenty of macros! My favorite AOG f2 phenos are all purple-stemmed stretchy ones... they are huge and perky and smell/look tremendous.

I'm not planning to make any s1's but will definitely do some f3's and backcrosses with the best females

Im sure will hit the market better too. How do you feel about the south fork seeds you tried out? and whats your flower feed regimen? If you feel like sharing. Consistency is key and it shows;
nice work
some of the Sprites do have yellow hairs, that cross is something i am very proud of, it came out very consistent and quality is AAA

If you want consistent seeds then bodhi is probably not for you.... every seedpack can contain several different phenos. I recommend South Fork Seeds for consistency, the chem male they use seems to produce very uniform offspring, with only slight variation from plant to plant.

our feed regimen this year was nothing... water only, except weekly foliar with AEA holomac/mic and Albion calcium.. We're going to step up our nutrition game next year though.
