Yep, politics here in the south are either depressing or funny, depending on my mood.
1.Causing or resulting in a feeling of miserable dejection.
2.Causing a damaging reduction in economic activity.
Hmmmm, when are they gonna figure out that those 2 deffs go hand in hand???
It's fun seeing your indoor projects. You have the skills my old friend.
Bro, I know you are indoors, but you may see some similarities to OD plants re the Vortex. You're going to have a lot of fun with em. OP's method of staking and then mason's twine circling the plant and attahed to the bigger stems always keep mine standing outside when they get large. And some really get very large. I had a half-pounder a couple years back. The growing buds are some of the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen or smelled. They really do finish in 7 to 8 weeks outside, and the last 2 weeks they swell like summer clouds blowing up out of the Gulf during the late Summer months; moist and fluffy. They are certainly a collector's bud- the smell, the heavy resin, even after a good cure and dry. I found them to be easy to grow as well.
Have fun indoors, and think of me this summer while I'm hauling water and you're sitting in front of your a/c swilling cold beverages. Warmest regards, GJs
PS. I'm running 5 of TGA's Agent Orange this summer. I want to get some of those "tree" genetics
mixed into my gene pool. Plus I'll be running a batch of Vortex X SAGE and Sour D. The F1 pheno of that crop was incredible. I'm hoping F2 will be just as good.
mmR GJ: I'm honored to have you stop by, sir. And to drop some of that TGA knowledge on me. Have you been pulled into Sub's distinctive marketing culture, The Weed Nerd? I'm enjoying it...not sure exactly why, but my dose of redneck genetics no doubt has something to do with it.
I will be thinking of you this summer, and I hope following your hijinks in some thread or another--I just saw that OP is back up and rarin to go in his.
The notes on VOrtex' habit are most interesting. I would normally run it and the others mostly natural, since I have this small space. But I had such a screwed up canopy last time, with radically different heights and widths, that I think I can't help myself and am going to top and pull down the leaders...despite the fact that Vortex gets so big and loofy. I just want to see that magic carpet of green and white and gold, even if mine is a tiny lil carpet.
Hope you'll drop by on occasion when you're back in from all that hauling, watering, hiding, bug slapping and snake handling out there....I would try to make it look harder inside, but hey, it just ain't so. Something about having a/c and a nearby frig, couch, tv and stereo really changes the feel of these grows...as Dankohzee is now learning.
