Hello again and welcome to my 2011 garden party. It's good to have you here and the house rules remain the same. Respect for all, good conversation, no hate, no fighting. Basically don't be a total asshole, ask decent questions, and you'll be good.
I'll be growing 13-15 plants, with backups in case things go south. Again it will be as organic as I can keep it for lots of reasons but primarily because I don't wanna cheat myself out of the character and flavor of the genetics I purchased. Use those chemicals and you'll get lots of weed, but all shitty tasting, headache-inducing, unhealthy, non-winning grinch weed that I wouldn't let porkdog wipe his butt with. OK so here are the strains I have to choose from:
5-Paradise Seeds Sensi Star Feminized 1
5-Barneys Farm Tangerine Dream Feminized 1
5-Green House Seeds White Widow Feminized (on order)
5-Female Seeds X-Line C99 Hybrid (on order)
3-Paradise Seeds Pandora Autofems 1
1-Reserva Privada Kandy Kush Feminized
1-Kannabia Afrodite Feminized 1
1-Dinafem Blue Widow
1-Buddha Deimos Autofem
1-Buddha Red Dwarf Autofem
1-Dinafem Critcal Jack 1
1-Dinafem Moby Dick#2 1
3-Green House Seeds Femmed Himalaya Gold
10-Reg M.O.D Menage a Trois
I am putting out my first of three rounds, spread a week or so apart. If there is a "1" next to the stain listed above, they are in round 1, the early round.
I'm germinating outdoors in soil filled cups. I normally like to put em out in a soaking rain to crack em and then a warming trend to bring em out. Those conditions are met this weekend: a good soaking rain with the next few days to be warm in the 70F-80F range and evening temps above 50.
I decided to try 16 oz styrofoam cups this year , yes I know the environment, but those plastic solo cups aren't exactly nature's pal either. My seed-starting soil mix is proven and simple: 80:20 ratio of Promix BX to wormcastings all mixed up in a 5 gallon bucket. I loaded the mix into the cups only 3/4 full with pencil size drainage hole in the bottom. The low soil level will allow me to add more later to stabilize spindly seedlings.
Anyway I'm excited and feeling good about things. Welcome aboard. I need to run out and do a few Saturday errands, but I'll leave you with these pics of the process thus far.
