This season i'm going to try something a bit different. I'm going to utilize a spot that I have been wanting to use for years--except it's a bit swampy. No worries though. Why? Well because i'm in the Grass City baby, and the coolest, most knowledgeable growers in the world can be found right here (especially now that the other forum is defunct), so even though I have absolutely no experience with this sort of growing, I have access to the collective wisdom of the entire city. And I plan to use it.
After a couple of years of lurking around here, I have come to respect the know-how of quite a number of people. Old Pork, Hashmouf, Augustwest, and yes, the infuriating, anti-american, sarcastic wizard of the 50 liter pot:Cantharsis,lol.
Cantharsis, for those of you who don't know, has many years experience growing in containers on the rooftops of Spain. I have also found him to be extremely hip to the sometimes confusing nuances of organic fertilization. So basically, even though this is my grow, i'm going to stand on the shoulders of Cantharsis, and copy what he has done. After all, he gets better yields in a pot than some of us do in the ground(I just hope he doesn't piss me off again like he did last season, because then i'll be stuck with his name on my thread. What exactly is a Cantharsis anyway?).
Of course, i'll have a few in the ground too, just in case.
Here's the deal. I currently have:
10 femmed GHS White Widow (thanks again for the info Pork)
10 GHS Femmed Strawberry Haze
10 femmed Barney's Farm Sweet Tooth
5 non-fem Mazar I Sharif freebies from Seedboutique
In addition to these seeds, I intend on picking up:
5 Femmed Autos for my dad to try outdoor in his flower garden (my pops rules! He's seventy and he still grows herb!)
5 Femmed Sativa seeds. Maybe early pearl, Opium, Or G-13 Haze
Also this year I will be purchasing a BubbleNow machine to simplify my hash making duties which will be considerable with such frosty strains.
Here's the rules of this thread:
1) Don't be an ass
I don't mind if people post pics as long as they pertain to what is being discussed (or if you're one of the peeps I mentioned above, or one of my other GC associates in good standing, lol).
Most of all, though, I want to explore the possibility of utilizing swamp land for cannabis production. After all, swamps are unpleasant to travel through, so often they are very safe. Quite frequently there is minimal shade in these areas too. And they are very, very green, so they conceal the Ganja plant well. I think just about anyone reading this can probably think of at least one spot nearby that might work for this kind of grow--at least those of us who don't live in the southwest any way.
