NFT and Bubba Kush, rocks, cats, dogs and stuff

I was going to start this thread a day or two ago, but could not think of a good thread title.
Still can't.

OK

My last thread, was needing therapy even more than me after the stroke. Not eliciting sympathy, most of you guys know already because I already ran a sympathy thread about it, but I mention it because it rules my life. I have to deliberately place each footstep and my head's forever fucked up.

But hey, when i got out of the hospital I had to use a walker with someone holding a gate belt wrapped around my chest.

i could barely swallow mushy food.

But hey, now i can walk. Sometimes a bit wobbly and i take a cane if my wife takes me somewhere lol. i can't drive and my car's been sold off.

My kid redesigned my grow so i could get around in it, and it's changed a lot more over the last several months

So I started running the top buckets from my old Hydrofarm full of clay balls, bur without the lower buckets. i just sat them on a sloped tray, with a drip ring on top running 24/7 through the balls back into the res. I'll put a few pics of the last run like that, 4 Bubba Kush plants under 2 600 watt lights.

i didn't make a pound, so was a bit dissapointed, but i got over 12 oz. so it was ok. I have another one going, but there are two plants in each bucket, some Bubba, some Cheese.

They look great and i'll get to some pics of those soon too.

I popped of bunch of Tahoe/WRBB (white russian blueberry) and blueberry/wrbb
culled all the males. one of each looks good, the others are lagging behind.

and i have made my first pipe from stone, i'll show you more pics of that than you really want to see.
and of course a pic or three of my beloved dogs and cats.

so here's a few pics to start. These are the last bubbsa, of which only an oz or so is left.

Thank you BombBudPuffa

That grow was my last nft run, doing the same thing again but a bit different. i'll show them soon, as i make my way through the pics i went through.

The ones from the last post were being chopped in these pics
i went through and pretty well defanned them before i chopped them.




last one

That's my dog Martha. Bruno, the big Great Dane died last Dec. he was 12 and now my girl is getting up there too. she's 15, i guess pushing 16 now.
She's hanging in there, a bit skinny. Before i got sick and was in the hospital for 3 weeks, she looked pretty good, when i came home she was so skinny, and has never really recovered.


This is the left side of the buckets where the tubes from the pump were. You can see bad salt build up on the drip rings.

i cured that problem. more on that later



This is my hobby, which is about to turn into a very small business.
You can see my little red stone pipe and a few of the next ones I'll be making soon. Lapidary equipment is spendy and I'll be showing you guys what i'm up to as this thread moves slowly along.




I'm proud to say that I've got the real deal GG4, but out of three cuts, two have mushed out. Made me weep. Well, it made me cuss. One is looking OK after 3 days in the rooter.
Firestorm is also now in the stable. Well, as soon as 4 cuts that i have root. i had one mush out.
I dropped the tempp 2 degrees in the room, though my cuts have been blasting out roots lately, so i don't really get it.

Also got 3 more cuts a couple days ago.
Blue Steel
Phoenix Lights
Dr Who

First day was iffy, but they all look good now.

I'll also be showing some pics from inside a major cultivation center for a dispensary here in az.

soon.

Went over by Saguaro Lake to the Salt River and did some rockhounding. Saw a bunch of buzzards.

saw these guys circling my grow room, i knew the last GG4 cut was dead.


Yep, Original Glue came and went, and i never even got to run it.

I'm going to get rid of my Diesel cross. Now that i have some new strains, I can get rid of it. It's not up to par and takes too long. It filled a need, but no more.

I wish i had kept a different one. I had one that was lemony and the perfect high for me, but I didn't like the way the buds looked, till after they were cured, and they actually looked pretty good. Mistakes get made fairly regularly around here.

the pics below are a few weeks back.

Of all the Tahoes and Blueberries I am running, only one Tahoe and one Blue Berry are looking decent, all the others look like they're 3 weeks in, but tomorrow is 7 weeks. I'm about to toss the lot of them.



the tahoes and blueberries are on the right



This is my res, a tad small, it's using 2 gallons a day.
no airstones, just the waterfall.

These are some wild horses over by Saguaro Lake east of Phoenix.



These rocks are destined to become pipes.
just need to get some longer diamond drill bits and more shaping and profiling bits, wheels and burrs

they're all nice but i kind of like the white onyx. i have a pretty big chunk of it, so i'll make a dozen white ones before i'm through.




These guys were up by the lake too.

That's my Girl Cat. I told her when she lays like that, she looks like a little otter and that I was going to put her pic on the internet and tease her. she lays like that anyway.
She's a sweetheart. except when the new big hairy dog comes near, she hops on my chair and smacks the crap out of him.




Did a major defanning of the bubbas and cheeses in the NFT.

I also had to pull one of the buckets off the table, because it had some root rot.

There are a few things i need to do to refine my method, but i really like the NFT. I think the holes in the bottom of the bucket got jammed with roots and it held water.

I got some recent pics, but they're still on my cam and i have a few others still in the album for this thread anyway, so i'll post up a few pics as i inch towards how things are going to be as I settle on a growing method that suits my needs and demands and is something I can handle and stay on top of.

I'll be getting a few more new strains soon, and I still have 4 new strains rooting in the cloners.

Did I say that my GG4 cuts all died? what a dick. how could i let that happen. Cloning has been going really well for me for a while now.

Firestorm will make it though. I put a Blue Steel clone in coco. 10 days roots. bam into the cup.

This is my pipe before I drilled out the bowl.


this is a sintered diamond 3/16" hole saw attached to a water swivel so water pumps down the center of the bit right to the end where the work's going on. This one is too short to help me much, but I'm going to get a few of these 1.2, 5/8, etc for drilling out bowls.
edit:
actually, it's just in the chuck, but now it's in the water swivel,

These are the empty seed packs that I've gotten over the years from seedbay. Haven't had new store bought seeds in a few years now.
I'm still trying to go through the thousands of seeds I've got.



These are the crosses I've made and that I've been working through.
Mainly a few hundred with pretty good potential.

That's by the Salt River just under Saguaro Lake. Tons of rocks right there and I spent hours searching for good ones. could have spent a week.

This is a dust storm. We get them every year. in fact this was the only good one this year. sometimes they roll over whole mountains and the mountains just disappear. Not good to drive in.



I already posted this pic, but i'm posting it again bigger because I have a pic from a few days ago to show the crazy stretch. Plus i defoliated them at 21 days so they look skinny now too.
this is from right after i flipped them 5 weeks ago.


You can see the sick Cheese plant at the bottom with leaves messed up from damage caused by them $#@^&*% Root Aphids.

I'm in the process of becoming an IPM expert. I just wrote a paper on a good IPM strategy for any grow to stay bug free, but these Root Aphids are making me wonder if it's possible to defeat them.

Hit the veg with some Bifen. that'll help for now.


There's a pic of this pipe above, but i like this one, same one above that's not drilled out. Only with the bowl drilled and loaded with some Bubba.
