    Hi :wave:

    Welcome to my very first grow. Mr. Budslinger said that I can take my pick of seeds we have on hand for "my" first hydro grow...hehe I'm pretty excited! :D Thanks Yoda :love: :p

    I'd really appreciate any input you may have on my choice of strains.

    1. dutch passion blueberry
    2. afghan kush
    3. original skunk
    4. big budda blue cheese
    5. paradise white berry

    I've done a little research on a few of the strains listed above, and will continue as I ponder the decision of "which" frosty buds I'd like to drool over while I anxiously wait for harvest ;)

    Looking forward to hearing from all of you and having tons of fun in my very own garden ;)

    edit: growing white berry

    Mostly indica, medium height, medium flowering time, THC level 15-18%, produces nice frosty trichs and berry scent. High: crystalline Sativa head high - smoked in higher quantities, an Indica-style body stone (we will see...haha).

    I wont offer my opinion as im biased...
    look foward to seeing the little gal sprout up ;)...
  3. :yay::yay::yay:Congrats on the grow! :hello:

    Personally, I'm loving hydro. Plus, you've got the best help you could ask for living in the same place! Coolies! :D

    Out of your choices I've only grown the skunk and it got a disease. :( I'm gonna try another seed in the new year.
    The others sound yummo. :yummy:

    So what sort of hydro system are ya gonna use? :) I probably won't understand it, but tell me anyway. :eek::smoke: Will you be in the cubby or has the boss allocated you your own space? :) What lights ya got?

    Yeah, sorry, I'm pretty nosey. :eek:

    Looking forward to seeing those ickle sprouts! :D Good luck! :wave:
  4. My vote is for the Afghan Kush! I love kush. :rolleyes:


    can't wait to see this one...

  5. Vote noted Unclenugs... What is it that you love about kush??? the buzz??? the plant, buds??? everything??? Appreciate the input. I've read that it's knock you on your ass smoke :smoking:

    Awe man! :rolleyes: seriously yoda??? :laughing:

    Thanks freedom! :) I'm pretty excited about it...I have butterflies in my stomach...LOL! Feeling like a little kid waiting for Santa to show up.

    Glad to hear that your loving hydro :D Be as nosey as you want...hehe...I don't mind ;) Sorry to hear about the skunk :( GL when you crack the next one.

    So far no definite plans on the set up. There's been talk of my very own garden, and also using whatever flower area is available. Either way we need another table.

    I know that if I do have my own area I'll be using flood / drain table similar to what's in the cubby / new room. For the most part the thought has been that where my girls flower will depend on the table available when the time comes. I guess, it could be under the 400 in the cubby or one of the tables in the new room with the existing 400 or 600 watt we still need to pick up. Still lots of planning to do.

    My own area would be very cool...just not sure "where" to put it ;)

    Thanks for stopping in guys and Miss Freedom ;) appreciate it :smoke:
  6. I know what you mean, I get way over excited about my grows, I'm a bit of a saddo about it really, but hey ho. :p

    Looking forward to seeing your setup, it's so cool that you guys are legal, the world's your oyster! :hello:

    Toodles. :wave:

    I love Kush because I'm from California. :D

    Around my neck of the woods, there are 5 different classes of weed.

    Stress, Middies, Chronic, Super Bomb, and Kush

    Kush has a distinct smell, taste, and texture whether it's master kush, afghan kush, bubba Kush, o.g. Kush, whatever. They're all a tiny bit different, but they're all distinctly, and unmistakably Kush. The smell is hard to describe, because the only word I know to describe the smell is kush, haha. It breaks up like popcorn, and has big, fluffy buds. They are mostly Indica, so they stay short, have tight internodes, and have dense buds that from are usually big from top to bottom. It's usually a big producer, which is probably why it's a popular strain around here.

    the high is definitely a knock you on you're ass type of high, but it's always pleasant. All good weed should knock you on yer ass, IMO, haha

    I've actually never grown any myself, but I've got a few kush strains veggin' so I'll be excited to get those flowered out.

    hope that helps. :wave:

  15. haha...tentative decision on which seed to pop...I'm leaning toward white berry but still have a bit of research to do on the blue cheese. Definitely can't bring myself to grow Pepe Le Pew! :laughing:

    definitely going with flood / drain system...more details to come :D
  16. ha ha ..pepi le pu....

    thats would be the skunk #1 darling....
    the cheese is suppossed to smell like blue cheese....
    still not the most pleasent fragrance but better then pepi...haha...

  17. LOL!
    Freedom...can I borrow your stick please??? Yoda needs a good poke I think... :laughing: :poke: :poke:
  18. lmao! You two crack me up! :laughing: I'm with doinYoda on the skunk, fuck it, who wants Pepe bud?! :D
    Go with the Whiteberry I reckon, :yummy: I grew Blue Widow, was some of the best bud I've grown yet. Yummers.:smoke: All the taste and smell of the blueberry and the punch of the Widow.

    *passes Mrs Yoda the stick* :wave: Use it wisely, with great power comes great responsibility. ;) But I agree, cheeky he is. :p

    New journal will be up soon, a week maybe two. Gotta construct the mega tent and carbon filter first, which has eluded me for a month already. :eek:
  19. So the white berry is the same as blue widow huh, I have blue widow in veg. and its doin great. I just read about white berry and it seems to have the same genetics.
    I was confused at first with all this talk of cheese, sounds nasty to me who wants weed that smells of cheese. Then I found out cheese is just skunk, most of it being skunk #1.
    I loved the blue cheese I tried and think skunk #1 is awesome, its just that old school skunk smell that I miss from my younger years
  20. *cough*kush*cough*

    excuse me, had a little tickle in my throat there...
