my ACE journey begins

Howdy ACE fans, thanks for stopping by! I've been hanging out around here for the past few months; reading, studying, learning all I can and trying to decide where to begin. It was a tough decision, everything looks great, but I've gotta start somewhere so...

A brief intro--I was a pretty active around here a few years ago but life changes and such and I had to get away for a bit. Recently, my wife and I sold her condo and are looking for a house where we can set up a nice permanent garden. The market sucks around here right now so we're holed up in a small apartment until something comes along. In the meantime I rigged up a small LED tent in our closet. I grow organic but all the totes of my own supersoil are out in my storage shed so I'm using store-bought organic soils and such. It's working ok for now but I'm looking forward to getting my own tools back.

I've always run regular seeds but feminized seems the way to go for now. My seed starting/veg area is a single LED with a reflector sitting under a desk in the spare bedroom. (essentially, I don't have a separate veg area) I'm giving my seeds about a week of 24/0 to get them started and then they go into the 12/12 tent. I want to start with some good all-around smoke for our everyday use. So after changing my mind about a thousand times I ended up with Tikal and Congo.

Comments on Tikal like these from dubi caught my eye:

Quote:

If you are curious to explore more the Tikal line, i would recommend you to check the new Tikal fem we have just released: it has much better terpenes, consistency and overall better quality than previous Tikal standard (regular) releases. It's also in our Tikal Breeders Pack where you will find the best expressions that this great sativa hybrid has to offer...

Komanche never uses internet, but he's always happy when i comment him about the good results that many growers are having with his strain
And then there's this classic:

The smell is superb, you could launch a perfume brand out of these aromas, and then again it wasn't even cured!!
Here's a small bit of the last nug I finished this morning :View Image

Happy xmas everyone!!

The Congo description from the ACE website, "Premium quality clean, positive and energetic effect, perfect for an open minded, creative and active life style." Sounds great to me!

And some Congo comments:

As you said, the effect it's really positive, social, euphoric, but at the same time is not anxious .... feel good weed!
I appreciate a lot these kind of sativa qualities in hybrids.

Wish you enjoy it a lot!

Quotes that caught my eye, turned me on to Kali China, too. It wasn't really on my radar but dubi speaks very highly of it:

Thanks a lot for the feedback Enjoy her!
Zamaldelica has always sounded interesting to me and knowing that it's one of the smelliest, tastiest of the catalog, I just had to grab some, too. Those 2 lines should be a nice complement to the Congo and Tikal, pushing in slightly different directions.

I can't wait to get started. Thanks for all the great info from everyone. Thanks to dubi and crew for being so active and informative.

It does feel good to grow again after a break. I know I am enjoying tending my new garden.

I haven't yet tried the Congo or Zamaldelica. I've got a Tikal growing now - Dubi sold me on that with his description.

I can vouch for the Kali China. Its got good strength and wonderful fragrance and taste when smoked. It is a keeper for me from now on.

Looking forward to watching your grow.

Samuel Caldwell, Welcome back! I do remember seeing you some years ago. It's good to have you back in the forums. Great selections of your genetics. I hope they turn out well for you and the wife. Having grow seasons put on hold is rough. I hope you are able to find a place soon that suits your passion. Peace

Thanks, brother, but I was using a different name back then. I figured that I'm basically starting over so I'd start fresh around here, too.

We can't wait to get into a house! We both love gardening, in fact she's much more knowledgeable about it than me. It'll be loads of fun when we find the right place. Once we get set up I plan on picking up a lot more seeds to celebrate. I can't wait to start keeping mom's and chucking pollen again! Fun times!

Thanks, Claude. I've seen and appreciate your posts. I research a lot and read everything I can find. Like you, I started noticing comments from dubi and I figure he knows better than anyone else so if he says something is good then I should pay attention.

I've got a bunch of old seeds in my stash but they weren't stored properly and I'm having troubles getting them to germinate. My plan was to run them until we moved but since they're not popping...buy some seeds!

Another comment from dubi that helped convince me:

Another great Congo review. I can't wait to get started!

Three nice tokes and I was doing laps inside my house bouncing from one thing to another, could hardly make my mind up what I wanted to wear out to dinner that night. That lasted about 20 minutes and then it turned into a very long lasting euphoric high. Very social and in tune with the conversation - music was awesome! Most cannabis actually keeps me from eating however this did not which could be bad or good depending on your situation
This is now one of my favorites but my wife loves it too so I need to watch my harvest closely.
Thanks Dubi and Ace!

SC, you can't go wrong with ACE seeds as a starting point. Their catalog may not suit the weed snob, but for anybody getting back into growing you will find mostly easy to grow plants with good mind and body effects.

The only people I've known that didn't like ACE gear were heavy smokers with really high tolerances that were used to WLD effects.

I've turned quite sceptic about people's comments on strains and I now take them with a pinch(or two) of salt...I might be highly demanding...tolerance could be another factor along side "burnt" lungs...haven't greened out for a long time now...don't know really, but no strain has turned out the way I read it commented either by dubi himself or other highly respected growers...yet, no Ace strain has ever let me down all the way...
I am pretty sure you're gonna have lots of fun...

So, welcome to the machine!

Thanks for the replies!

Great news--my seeds arrived today! All looks good, just gotta decide what to start first. My tent is pretty small, 4 plants will fill it nicely, but I've only got room to start 2 right now since one of my old Satori seeds finally popped as well as a fairly recent purple haze bagseed. Pretty sure I'll start with one Tikal and one KC but we'll see.

Thanks to the crew at Ace for the super fast shipping! I can't wait to get started!
