Smkn is Back and Rarin' To Grow

You should be proud of him for sure. Between seed runs and sharing with many people, he is one of the reasons I will never join another forum. The many like minded people help too :wink:

So while waiting for the equipment.I found a guy local to me has a dispensary and clones for $10 each.Gonna grab 10 to play with while i start my seed runs.

This way i can veg the clones 3 weeks take a cutting from each and throw the 10 clones into flower,and get some bud and bubblehash while the seed runs and cuttings grow.

Going to soak seeds tomorrow and have tents set up by monday and grab the clones…Happy days are coming back again.I have so missed growing beautiful ladies and The OG community

Haha you guys are so kind! :joy::joy:

@SmknCanuck I think the quickest will be the OH or the HBC
Your risky takin in clones right off the hop you might introduce unwanted pests. I’ve had to completely shut down twice in the last 4 years because I took in that “special” clone.

Heck no man, you’ve earned it. I can watch other members as well as yourself, and it gives me something to shoot for.

So i just soaked 8 seeds each of the Oregon Huckleberry f2 and huckleberry crackers and 5 seeds each of the SD SLx Blue Coma, SD SL x GSN, OGer x Chocolate Rain, Mauwi Wowie x Cherry Bomb and 5 Dragonbood Hashplant…Since i have 2 crosses of the Sour Diesel Snow Lotus going i opted not to start any SD SL f2 at this time…Will prep my 16oz beer cups today to have ready for seeds opening.

The clones i get Friday will be isolated and thoroughly washed,rinsed and receive a light spray of neem oil,then get a long hard blow in front of a fan till i am sure there are no pests or fungicide.

Now to make a trip to get the copper tubing,copper connectors and the coroplast and mylar to make the divider wall for the tent.will end up with a flower chamber 4ft w x 6ft l x6ft8" h and have 1 seed and clone chamber 2ft w x 4ft l x 2.5ft h and a veg chamber for mums 2ft w x 4ft l x 4ft h.
At 24sq ft the flower room will have a 1000w HPS and 1000w LED for 83w/sq ft to start with 2 more 1000w led available if needed…the clone and veg chamber will each have a 1000w LED for 125w/sq ft.

I am already looking at using a storage closet as a 2nd flower room for those strains that take 12+wks to finish and will give me another 36sq ft flower room.

I took a better pic.I am suprised at how bright the led’s are in a black cabinet,should be even brighter in a mylar room. I am ordering a 2nd 1000w hps light for the flower room and will use the 6 led’s for clone and veg chamber.

Just noticed one Dragonblood and one of the SDSL x GSN popped up,the DB dropped its shell and still has the membrane around it,The SDSL X GSN still has the shell on,been misting it to help it open and remove it.Very impressed with Mongo’s beans the just wanna grow😁so DBHP #5 took 3 days to sprout from seed…OGxCR #3 sprouted up 3 days from seed but still has shell bein moistening it to help it soften and i can help it off.

So moistening the seed husk let me gently release it using 2 pin points,the membrane will come off soon and it will be on its way.

The first MW X CB #3 popped up this one pretty well tossed its on husk.

Another DBHP #3 popped up


And the 2nd SDSL x GSN #1 Has just popped.
First OregonHuckleberry #3 has sprouted.Sure more will be popping up today.
@Mongobongo great job on the beans bro.They are very eager to grow for soaking beans 3 days ago.

My soil is an all organic local blend from a friend with a landscaping company.A combination of rich dark soil with a lot of organic material and small styrofoam pellet mixed in for aeration.
