The Crux of the Biscuit



Kinda been partying a lot lately

Follow along as we transform a guest room into a serviceable grow space and teach my roommate how to grow for himself and do so on a budget. Featuring cuts from friends and dispensaries- seeds from Breeders Retail/Chimera/Cannacopia/Cultivator's Choice & Greenpoint, as well as some old stashes that I've been holding onto for a minute.

I've moved a handful of times over the last two years so really investing any effort in a home grow wasn't feasible. Not to mention I already do this full time and the last fucking thing I want to do when I get home is transplant or trim. However- with the friend to keep an eye on it and execute all duties of the Office of Grower, I like our odds of turning out a good product and making a good gardener out of someone who's never really engaged with plants this way.

And did I mention liberal smatterings to the dome-piece of my favorite Zappa songs and quotes?

YES! And But Also! Conceptual Continuity of building a test soil out back where we smash up elements of the SlowN/Coots/LOS/Organic/Mineral/Calculated/Guesstimated/Numbers v. Results-and-all-methods-in-between-kinda-sorta-mix-blend-type of growing for cannabis and foodstuffs!

(This is a dog talkin' now)
What is your Conceptual Continuity?
Well, I told him right then
(Fido said)
It should be easy to see
The crux of the biscuit
Is the Apostrophe(')

We're planting in nothing more than a 50/50 coco/perlite mixture. I run a few cups of Jacks/Calcinit through the starting mix to rinse and charge. No ph. At the time of transplant, a little bit of powdered mycos gets sprinkled in. Once a week, BioAg Ful-Hum at a minimal rate is mixed in. Most of these are still in smaller cups so we'll raise that up in time. Found a garden store was closing yesterday so a bottle of microbe life: photosynthesis plus was purchased for extremely cheap. Also scored on new can filters, scales, biochar and fittings. Filled my arms for $29!

Here's the seed stock.

NL x ChemDbx (Chimera): Germed and popped on 3/14, surfaced on 3/18. Though all 5 popped, only 3 made it to this stage. Two distinct phenos here.

Blizzard Bush (Greenpoint): Germed and popped on 3/28. All six germed, all six surfaced by 4/2.


View image in gallery

Mental Floss (Chimera): 3 germed on 3/24, 3 sprouted by 3/28


View image in gallery

Chunky Monkey x C99 (Cannacopia): 4 seeds planted somewhere around mid-late Feb. Three survived and they look pretty good.

And another CM x C99: This was the biggest to jump ahead so it's been cloned already. The other two are hesistant to start thowing axillary branches or nodes, so I can't tell yet if this is a different pheno or a result of topping.

Other aims:

The Blizzard Bush consisting of Pura Vida caught my eye. A friend holds a cut of Pura Vida which at its highest has tested at ~37% THC. If we can smash this Blizzard and his cut together, a most chunky and potent strain could present itself over a few rounds.

For flower I've got a 600w (300 total draw) LED panel which should cover a 6x2 closet space quite nicely. However, after seeing how Repuk has constructed his SILs for minimal cost and max efficiency, we'll be doing a pseudo side-by-side to try some things out.

The system in mind for flower is a weird idea. It's recirculating but not DWC. I didn't want to have to worry about root rot or paying for additives to keep a bin sterile/clean. Net pots will hang in a bin and drainage will return everything back to where it started. The bulk head fittings won't allow full drainage though. We end up with about a cm of standing solution (even tilted, the grooves of the bins won't empty) and that's not terrible I suppose. Could even be beneficial. If we pump a feed 5 times a day, any suspended roots should enjoy both the jacks mixture and oxygen without too much fuss or stress.

Here are the moms:


UK Cheese ^


Lucinda Williams ^


Pure Love ^


Cloning has gone well:


100% success on this round, all shooting right up.

Here's our suspension/shared recirculating demo. This and another bin will be plumbed together and return everything to our res. Flipping to flower at the end of this month. Starting with one UK, one PL, one LW, and one CM99. In the next bin I hope we have the rest of the seeds ready to go so we can run perpetually and keep variety interesting. They should be good to go by mid-late May.

And our male (Purple X, Chimera):



Seems hearty and healthy but I can't point to anything in this particular male that we would want to keep. Stem rub- nothing. Took forever to show sex or organs. Its female counterpart began to take a dive and now only one clone of her exists. And by dive, I mean for no reason. All of a sudden, multiple deficiencies while everything around it thrived. The male is going down the same road I think. We shall see.

Where I stole the Mar-juh-reen

St. Alfonzo! The Texas Butter I ordered on Saturday is here already.

5 seeds dropped in water just now. Greenpoint delivers (literally!) again.

All Texas Butter popped and planted. Put in paper towel on 4/27, popped totally and planted in coco on 4/28. Here they are today.

All the moms got cloned again and haircuts. Next round includes CM99 #2 & 3, some more Lucinda Williams, Pure Love, Mental Floss #3, NLxChem #3 & 4. #5 died in the cloner. However the mom NLChem's have regenerated incredibly quick. All will enjoy more chances in the future along with the Blizzard Bush (which got topped today) and the Texas Butter. Also have some Deep Chunkolate from Cannacopia which I want to get into rotation. Ooo and found a couple Recon & Jesus OG bagseeds laying around. We'll pop those soon. First round of flower will begin in a week or two. Recirculating system in last photo.
