Hello everyone. Ive seen alot of new members around the forum this year. Im one of those GC growers that shows up in may and dissappears in a cloud of smoke *lol* in october. So let me introduce myself, I am a new england grower who specializes in swamp growing. Ive actually met a few people in real life who have mentioned my techniques theyve tried from GC. It was quite a compliment. My theory has always been simple is better. It makes me laugh when i see people spending hundreds on supplies and chemicals just to harvest a few ozs of decent bud. The key is to know everything about the area you are growing in and have a concrete plan of action that changes slightly each year, as you gain more knowledge. I grow in the wet, damp, mucky swamp where conditions are far from ideal and things can change at anytime depending on rain or drought. Spending an average of $50 dollars a year on supplies is all i believe is necessary (plus the cost of clones and seeds). *2011 Outdoor Grow Outline* Soil -My soil is a combination of two different types of homemade organic compost. -Rice Husks have been added as a perlite replacement becuase perlite sucks duh! Fertilizers -I will be brewing different kinds of compost teas throughout the season. This years research will be to create a few excellent and unique compost tea recipes. I want to tap into the great microorganisms found in the swamp to create some some really cool teas Plants -My list of plants is not yet finished. I will update this when they are in my possession. It just depends which types i feel like trying. maybe some Autoflower sour 60s, maybe some blue dream, etc. idk yet. -Anyone recommend 60 day autoflowers? That is all for now. Not sure how many pictures ill put up this year or how many updates ill do. Im not going to call this a journal but more of a place for updates.
