Coool!
I am very excited to see these grown out.
Just to be clear here…
The female Lemon Mints was an awesome clone only.
The Motor Breath 15 male was 1 of 3 studs I chose out of 50 seeds.

I have not grown any of these myself as of yet.
You will be the first @crownpoodle

Gonna be a good show!

Alright. More details as I rack my tiny, very stoned mind. If I have an issue/problem I can anticipate some of the needed details. Been down that path.
Daytime temps I’m shooting for 81-83, with rh below 60. New dehum Saturday should allow me better control.
Night temps 72-74. Humidity jumps at lights out but is down in and hour.
Besides the Lucas feeds. CaliMagic. Mag Sulphate. Armor Si for silica. Yucca. Liquid Cool Bloom sparingly. Powdered KB on hand to help when I fucked up. Hygrozyme (Tynehead Tom from Strawberry Hill Seed Co bailed my ass out with some of this stuff) Rookie move running something notorious for week 5 deficiencies.
Not all this stuff every feed. Basic Lucas formula, feeding between 500 and 750 ppm. Si, CM, and MS every time. I allow my ph to range between 6 and 6.5, shooting for 6.2. My limited understanding is different nutes have optimal ph for uptake. My run-off ph pretty closely matches my inputs. When I have the yard going I make compost tea weekly. Foliar and root drench. This next run isn’t likely to get much, but I sure like that stuff. My whole yard does. Except my neighbor sniveling about a tiny pump.
This is what I’ve BEEN doing, and where I’ll start again. Running 2 other strains may cause a compromise, nute need wise, but I’ll try and focus feed on this strain.
I am not great at diagnosing plant issues, and am far from a consistent grower. My weed’s fucking strong, but much of that is stellar genetics. Some not before noon type stuff. Any questions, go for it. At any time feel free to critique, compliment, or throw rocks. If your not comfortable kicking me in public, send a message.
Biggest reason I’m improving is because of places where folks treat me decent. Warts and all. Places like this. Folks like you. When I 1st started in a forum a couple years back, I noticed some of the best growers and breeders showing not just blown up shots of tiny, frosty buds. But whole plants not always looking good. I like that honesty.
Moving on.CP

More. Bugs, mold, etc. I haven’t had too bad a time in the 4x4. Had some fungus gnats and thrips, which were easily addressed. Green Cleaner, Safer insect killing soap, Azamax, Thuricide, Natria, Monterey B.t. and Garden Insect Spray (Spinosid. Indoor only, bad for bees) and neem oil.
This is just what’s in the shed. Some is unopened, or years old. Last run to completion Green Cleaner was all I used for pests.
I did have some buds mold on me a touch. The biggest, dense colas on some Strawberry Diesel. I didn’t have near the air mgt I do now, or even a crummy dehum.

Gypsum. At least once a week to decent run-off. Like tomorrow.
I admittedly do not entirely understand all the logic behind what I do. I’ve gone full “monkey see, monkey do” in the past. Sucks but it got me thru. Now I do what’s necessary, but try hard to understand the why part. Lots of opinions and ways to do stuff. I’ve found a couple folks who have a desire to share knowledge, and fill in the why part.

That was the norm here when I joined. Those folks are diamonds in my book.

I wonder how many small tent setups on Craigslist are folks who didn’t find a decent forum for help. How much money would your wife let you essentially throw away cuz ya can’t grow decent weed, before she pulls the plugs and sends you to a dispo?

15 seeds in papertowels, in a bag, in my sock drawer. SOP here. Socks are clean. Only break out the dirty ones for hard to germinate seeds.

I hear that works too.
Probably cause they smell like worm castings. :thinking:
They will get your wife outta bed quick in the morning too. :sunglasses:

This is one very important detail to get these seeds to pop! Pulling up a chair brother, holler if you need anything.

I understand this only works if you line up your seeds on the “Racing Stripe” aka skidmark.
Ok I’ll shut up now.

That would also be correct.

Hey @BigMike55
I feel your kinda humor is mandatory for this thread.
So come one back and give us another taste, don’t run away. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

@crownpoodle is just happy to get any kind of attention…LOL

Please refer to this as the organic fertization strip/stripe from this day forward. :woozy_face:

Could the organic fertilization stripe work on a banana leaf loin cloth on The Island? Banana leaf for some added P?
