Old Newb Returns

So, hopefully this thread will become thread-worthy over time, not sure my measly little garden merits a thread of its own, and yet here we are.

Anyway, I used to grow, but gave it up a little more than 10 years ago. I was always growing for my own consumption, so nothing fancy or all that impressive. I have put a few plants out on my property from time to time, but more often than not those came to naught, because I'm in a damp cool environment from late summer through fall, with lots of fog - great environment for mold and slugs, not so good for cannabis.

This year I was facing the prospect of small scale growing being legal, so I started some really old seeds, a few remaining RM's Romulan F1s I had in the jar, and F2s I made from the F1's container-mates a decade or so back Stupidly I didn't keep track of which plants came from the F1s, and which came from the F2s... but really this was all meant to be a dry run to get back into growing again, so mistakes were bound to be made.

And believe me, mistakes were made - the upside being the handful of females I ended up with are a manageable size - the downside being they aren't monsters. But hey, they're plants. Vegged under a fairly old MH fixture, decided to give CMH a try for flower. It's for my own consumption and I can always buy, so not too concerned about yield.

So, today was 2 weeks into flower. Photos are of the two distinct phenos I have - one looking pretty Indicaish, the other Sativa. I'll have to try to get better photos outside on the next sunny day.

Well, it turns out I'm also not that good at taking photos, although TBF it was a little windy outside and I had to sneak in a shot or two when it stopped blowing for a second. Trying to let the girls outside any day when we get decent sun - can turn off the lamp for a bit, and they get to soak up that sweet natural UV.



Anyway, the one photo that came even close to looking good. I need to work on a less busy backdrop.



Oh, did want to say when I said they entered flower on 9/1, I meant I switched over to 12/12 on 9/1. I did do one round of defoliation around FD9.

Meh, it's a lousy shot, but I'll throw in one of the Sativa looking plant as well.

Hello! your plants look good! how did you manage to stay away so long?

Thanks! Unfortunately I overferted them yesterday, particularly the Sativa. Damn that's a finicky plant. I imagine they'll recover, I'll flush for the next watering.



How did I stay away from ICM? Or Growing? I suppose the answer to both is life interceded (in a good way thankfully) and it seemed neither prudent nor time efficient to spend a lot of time on either. As to coming back after a good decade away, I finally have a spot I can control, where I'm not going to move so it's worth putting some effort into dialing things in. And once I'm back into hobby growing, what's more fun than going on a forum with other people who do the same thing?


Cultivation is legal where I live, eventually I imagine I might meet other people who grow IRL. Until then, I like the anonymity of the web.

Wanted to be sure to post a quick update. Now at 22 days of 12/12.

Obviously the first shot is the Sativa looking plant, and the other two are a close-up and whole-plant shot of the Indica looking plant.

There are actually two more, one Sativa looking and one Indica. The other Sativa-y one looks fairly different, thinking back on it I actually pulled seeds from three places, the mailer pack the F1s came in, a bag full of F2s, and a bag that was marked "BS" (bagseed) but which I thought was likely all cast-off Romulan F2s I had missed previously. Now I'm not sure. The other two plants are further behind the ones pictured here.

Yikes, I was already worried about low temperatures, particularly at night, and the really high humidity we're always facing this time of year, but now I'm super-freakin' out what with the (basically brand new) CMH lamp suddenly going on the fritz. Hopefully the long dark period last night won't mess things up too badly. It'll be what it'll be I guess.

Meh, I think everything might be ok, fiddled with the CMH and it seems to be working... maybe I'll see if there's anyway I can string both lamps (there are conveniently 4 super strong hooks in the ceiling rafters), so I can have the MH at the ready should I run into more issues with the CMH.
