First Time Grower Questions

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by Thikr, Aug 27, 2007.

  1. I got some seeds a couple of months ago (around february) and i figured i would plant this summer but i ended up losing them... for a time. Well the summer is almost over and I just found the greatest spot in the WORLD to grow-- I think. It is secluded but not too far away. the ground isn't really sandy, it is along a trail but the way to it is filled with thorn plants, poison ivy/oak/sumac, stinging nettles and it is hard to find due to the large amounts of vegetation. It receives rainfall weekly but it isn't too close to the river in my area (less bugs.) As well, the only way to get to the general area is by walking or bike and the only way to my soon-to-be patch is by walking-- through the thorns and nettles... yadda, yadda, yadda. It isn't TOO far off thoug so should we experience a heat wave or dryspell i could bring a gallon or two of water. so here is my strategy:

    1. Lie to my friends and say i don't smoke or grow pot

    2. Go this fall to dig up the weeds and other very close vegetation and move (did I mention there is a large amount of rocks and dirt for the moving) the rubble around the area to prevent deer and other animals from bothering my area.

    3. Bring a few gallons of potting soil one at a time to my spot. (I would look suspicious carrying a bag a potting soil right? I can just hide the gallons in a back-pack)

    4. Mix the potting soil well and spread a tiny bit of fertilizer. then mulch the area to prevent vitamin/mineral decay over the winter.

    5. Head down in the spring and mix some more potting soil and possibly some compost/manure and lime.

    6. Spread some seeds evenly about an inch deep in the soil (i buy weed and then save the seeds i find inside so I have like a hundred with about 4 different species)

    7. Water and occasionally fertilize the path I access my growing area from

    8. After the plants grow of a decent size, re-mulch.

    9. Next Fall I return in long sleeve clothing, hat gloves, boots-- the works. Harvest my crops and either make hash or if i can't, just smoke/sell the weed.

    Any ideas would be great. And i have two questions. I've heard when making hash through the ice-water/blender method, after you get your "smoothie mixture" you pour it THROUGH a silk-screen or reuseable coffee filter. Is there anything else that will work the same, like a silk shirt or a strainer? Because i don't have a silk screen or a reusable coffee filter handy.

    Also I've heard you can grow the fast yet potent "Hydro-Weed." I've heard you create it by dripping CO2 on fresh weed seeds. Is this just urban-legend or is this myth real and as amazing as it sounds?

    Lastly I was wondering if when you make hash out of "Purple Haze" if you get a really strong hash or if it is just more OF the hash. And if I was to make Hash out of Hydro Purple Haze, would that be like-- a cardiac arrest high or just a LOT of hash.

    Thanks and I'd LOVE some feedback.
  2. still need answers and fall is nearing!
