      Vic,
                   lest make a secret site for us...some shit we dont want to post about were
      ANYONE can come read....lets make a site that only people we check on and like can
      enter......its not fully safe...but it would be safer than here
      at leats they would have to make friends with us and prove themselves before we allowed
      them into our spot.....i mean nothing is 100% but hey..we spend all day talking about
      improving our growing skills...why dont we spend a little more time protecting
      ourselves..our friends..and our investments...ya dig?

      Hi Vic, and everyone else, I got back from my vacation just in time for 3 thanksgiving
      dinners... excellent luck! We came back earlier than planned, but I had a great time. Now
      to get my hands back in the dirt.

      Has anyone seen lothar around lately? If you see this L, there's an annoying little plea in
      your mail box ;-)

      OT1>> Thanks again for the info on Bio Bizz, now that I'm back I will be looking into
      that. I got the impression that you thought I'd have better luck waiting for them to start
      selling it in north america on their own, but it can't hurt to try right?

      Square pots >> If you don't find any, you could try this... I only tried it on one pot, but it
      worked okay. It won't increase the volume of the pot, but it'll let you fit more pots in the
      same area. I guess you could use bigger pots, which would give you more volume but
      the same number of plants:

      Take a regular round plastic pot and heat it in the oven till it gets nice and flexible then
      form it yourself into a square. Building a small jig/form out of plywood would probably
      help here as you have to hold it that way till it cools. I just squished the one I did between
      some bricks.

      I know it's a cheapo solution, but if you've already got the round pots, why not?

      Good luck guys.

      nice link spliff, they seem to have it all.
      ot1, i dont know where to order square buckets from. fortuneately for me i get them
      locally from a guy who sells buckets (i'm serious).
      but now that i think about it, the buckets are used for strawberries cuz they are
      sometimes stained still and labelled on occasion as being strawberries. so if you check
      out some fruit vendors for bulk or something maybe you can find em. good luck

      Eric>>"breeding for taste and smell
                  the only way im going to be able to do this is to grow it to maturity and
      keep records of which plant
                  is more fragrant right???????
                  that means smelling the leaves as the plant grows....then take clones from
      each one throughout the
                  year and flower and test...and eliminate anything that isnt fragrant
      right?????
                  so im going to have to pick the most fragrant male too.....
                  sssssssssshit.....i need a football field to do this man.....
                  any ideas will be appreciated"
      stix replies- hehehe, thats why id rather buy the seeds and why I respect the successful
      breeders so much!! It aint as simple as it first sounds! And its also why a good seed
      should cost so much money, it takes time, space and work! Eric i got some of that choc.
      thai bout ten years ago. When grown out, it wasnt choc but what a plant! Branches grew
      upwards instead of horizontal, got so heavy with bud the weight would split them from
      the stem. Grew a lime-green color, potent, potent and potent. Smell reminded me of cat
      piss more than anything. I dont know if I would cross it with anything if its same as I
      had and you're gonna grow outdoors, I dont know if it could be improved that much, it
      was my alltime favorite outdoor variety. I would test the viability of the seed you have,
      cause the curing process that make it "chocalate" can sometimes kill the seeds. Try a
      couple to see if they germ before too much time goes by.
      Vic>>Read with intrest a comment you made on another board bout Dutch Genetics. As
      a long-time friend of Dutch varieties, I didnt order any for bout 7-8 years, started
      ordering again bout 1and a half years ago, mostly old varieties I'd tried in past and liked.
      What Im finding is the strains appear to be "tired" or something. The hybrids just dont
      have the vigor and "zing" they did 10 years ago. Could this be that after so long they're
      getting so many common genes? Or are the strains just running out or am I just getting
      old. Whats your opinion? Im in the process of finishing up on latest batch of orders and
      am going to try some of yours, Ncga, and Bros Grimm products to compare in coming
      months.
 
 

Time 07:01, 14 Oct 1998
From Spliff

      ERIC.. If the original mom is closest to what you want you should take pollen from the
      first seed batch and repollinate the original mom. After 3 or 4 seed crops from the same
      mom, most plants will be nearly identical to the original.The process is called
      cubing. You can ask Mr. Soul for more info on the general indoor forum at LM.

      ok..once i find the perfect most fragrant mother and father....i will take clones from
      each.....save those clones..properly marked and tagged..then
      get as much pollen saved as possable
      and then pollente the shit out of the mother....take all the seeds...and then what do it
      again..or do i cross the resulting best female with the pollen from dad.....or vise
      versa...best resulting male ...pollente with clone from mom....

      i want to stabalize the strain of the the most fragrant chocalate before i cross.....

      FUCK
      but i have about three hundred seeds....so i have got to be careful.....ok
      guys...now....what i want to do is keep this strain as close as possable to what it is
      now,,,,which means...im going to HAVE TO breed for taste and smell....
      thats the only two traits i HAVE to keep
      now sure potencey would be great....but i think it was potent enuff to even if i lose some
      potency it will be ok..as long as i keep the taste and smell....once i stabalize it i will make
      a good cross or
      2 or 3 and then we got a product.....
      ok

      Jeremy Iím looking for square pots 7 x 7 x 9.5 inches high if you point me in the
      direction of a manufacturer or retail out letI would be most interested.
      Thiswould give me the best soil to space ratio at 2.4 plants per sq ft my ideal
      spacing. There is a company in the uk that uses this type to market roses but had
      them manufactured holds a patenton the mould and design. My Co-op needs 300
      of them and Iím blowed if I'm going buy enough roses to plant a 1/4 of an acre. All the
      best Ot1.

      thanks eric and ot1, i'll take both of your advice and let you know how it works out.
      ot1, yes i use 3 1k lights on a 6' Suntrac w/ 10' parallel bar.
      i'll let ya know how much i end up with. this is my first harvest with these bigger
      buckets. i was using 6" squares and averaging a little over 50 grams per sq. ft.

      dognuts That doesn't rate at all in history class here but I have seen something in in an
      Addams family movie. It makes more since now. We brits go to America get chucked
      out later then don't talk about it typical!
      Looked at wall-marts web site and couldn't find a garden section so don't know what
      they are like.
      The main thing Is that your tank can hold enough to water all the plants in one go. That
      the main feed pipes are big enough to get the water to all your small pipes to pot at the
      same time in your case 3/4 inch should do then tee off to each pot in 1/8 inch. Last but
      most importantrather than drippers or woodpeckers you need flood pins/stakes.
      They are a spike that you push into the soil with a small cage at soil level it has an input
      nipple with a bore of just over 1/16 of an inch and its virtually impossible to block. when
      you turn the water on it floods out of the cage watering without disturbing the soil. We
      have tried conventional drippers, adjustable and woodpecker drippers and come to that
      seep hose with organic nuteís they block and as you know trying to unblock a dripper in
      the middle of 3 or 4 ft plants 2 or 3 ft in means ripping the whole thing apart and not
      recommended. The only other thing I would say that when feeding mix your fertís fresh
      strain through some old tights so there are no lumps put into your tank stir and let it
      down straight away.
      Hope this helps. Ot1.
      I assume you are using a min of 3 k of lighting for this area that should be producing a
      minimum of 3 k of top bud and with good cultivation nearly double! Thats a lot of bud!!!

      ot1 for all intents and purposes a litre = a quart,and 4 quarts= a gallon,i have been
      thinking about a gravity system as well only i dilute feed with every watering.occasionally
      i use plain water to flush.i guess what you call flood pins we would call drip emitters.i'm
      thinking of using 1/4" soaker hose in a circle around the pot instead of the drip emitters to
      get better coverage.i have a 5 gallon plastic can with a lid threaded for 1" pipe to use as
      the reservoir

      just thought i'd let all who helped know that my momma that was giving me all the
      problems is dead R.I.P.
      i was trying to slide her out of the pot to get a look at her roots cuz she was still looking
      haggard. anyway, i inadvertently uprooted the entire plant!! she was being held in place
      by the strand of a single root. she was only using as much dirt as a small styrofoam cup
      can hold. NO WONDER SHE LOOKED LIKE SHIT! (you were right kane) imagine a 7ft
      plant in a strofoam cup and that is what she looked like evn though she was in a 32 gallon
      container.
      oh well, i have 75 cuttings i took from her and will replace her with the BEST two and
      force the rest. thanks to all for your time and efforts. this has been a very traumatic
      experience to say the least.
 
 

Time 06:44, 11 Oct 1998
From oldtimer1

      dognuts thats about 25.5 litres a potis this right? I live in the UK and don't
      understand your gallons as they are different to ours. So I'll tell you what I use and do,
      then you should be able to take any bits you want and adapt them to your methods of
      growing ok!!
      I use an organic soil / peatbased system. The pots are 4 litre 7.25 inch d x 8.5 ě h
      and are 6 rows of 13 per 8 ft x 4 ft with 2 k of light. This means there are 78 plants per
      32 sq ft ie 2.4 plants to the sq ft. There is a 20 mm feed pipe across the 4 ft end and
      three 15 mm runs between the pots down the 8 ft length and joined at the ends. The pot
      feeder pipes are teed off the 15 mm pipe where each pair of pots meet they are 4 mm not
      6 mm and have a 3 mm bore and plug strait into each flood pin. The pots are set on a
      dead level capillary matting bed so share any run through. This system will be
      commissioned In January, the prototype system was done on a 5í x 4í same spacings
      but using 1 k of light. In the first three weeks each pot needed 3/4 of a litre each every 3
      days. from the middle to the end of budding they needed 1 litre ea every 3 days so the
      tank was set to fill to 36 litres and then 48 litres. Yields over a couple of grows are
      averaging about 93 grams per sq ft. We met a couple of problems, the water in our area
      is very hard full of bicarbonates and who knows what else, we use sat heavy varís so are
      on 9 to 12 w on 12 hrs and have had probs with toxic saltbuild up. This requires
      moving pots and flushing through [not a good idea when they are rooted into the matting]
      so the new rooms water is being fed through an RO unit to deal with this. This should
      give you all the info you need to design a system. I will have a lot more info come April
      next year and maybe you will have some feed back to input for us all as well.
      All the best Ot1

      Hi Iím in the process of putting a gravity system together it has a 100 litre heading tank.

      pipes to netafim flood pins rated at 4 litres per hr. Iíve seen this system working at a 5 ft

      dognuts>>>>are you talking about indoors or outdoors?????
      indoors you can buy and automatic timer at wal mart (or almost anyplace like it) for
      abouyt $40.00 you can use it outdoors in your back yard.....
      but outdoors guerilla gardening...its to risky to leave a water hose.
      you can build resavoirs to hold water..but i havent seen or used anything that would
      automate it......
      if you have a few handy man skills..you can probably rig that timer into an automatic
      watering devise.....the resevore would have to be big enuff to give enuff pressure
      though.....

      bought the brick ..everyone had already told me about the high and smell...i had joked
      with them and told them some mexican sat around all day spitin tabacco juice on it after it
      cured to give it weight and taste....but we will know for sure in about 8-9 months.....then
      we will see..

      Eric.
      I have grown high mountain Thai and it is very difficult to grow. We used to get loads of
      it at one time, the stuff that comes in now is lowland commercial crap probably from
      Cambodia. Never seen a chocolate Thai, a lot of skunks have been taken to Thailand its
      probably a hybrid of some sort, it sounds like it came from a mixed bag. If you want to
      preserve a specific female that has a characteristic that you like either mum it up and
      keep her to make cuttings from. Or if you want to make a pure breeding strain you will
      still have to keep a mum and then cube itthis will take 4 to 5 generations.I have to
      tell you breeding for smell and taste is difficult. even IBLís like blueberry have variable
      smells and taste.
      hope this helps Ot1

      Honu, its hard to feel sorry for you man.Many others got ripped off and you were
      one of the ones defending Weedseed as on the up and up and that those "complainers"
      (just like you btw) should be ignored.So you may well have gotten some other

      comes around goes around.

From Vic High

      now there are some good ideas there pie. Plus maybe the brick had chocolate tai and then
      filler weed. I've known more than one grower to mix killer weed with other weed extend
      the batch.

      Eric - you want to trade pollen for seeds? I gotsa da lotsa da pollen, haha.

      Also, if you want, I could make sure that chocolate tai keeps it's punch for you, haha.
      Just send it my way.Actually seriously, Pie's advice of reading clarke is a great
      place to start. Picking the right parents to maintain a strain is a bit of an art though. It
      takes more than just picking the best looking parents. Sometimes, the healthiest plants
      would be ones of lower potency so by selecting them, you would be selecting for the
      wild type (and not the more potent domestic type).

      Good luck, you should have fun with this one. A weed that takes care of the munchies -
      so cool!
 
 

Time -2:26, 9 Oct 1998
From pie

      eric, this may be a guess on my part but seems like seeds react to heat by getting bigger .
      so maybe the big seeds came from the buds at the top of the plant and got smaller as you
      went to the bottom or maybe the brick had plants grown on different parts of the slope
      and some were exposed to higher temperatures.

      the color difference i would attribute to the black garbage bag effect. take a black
      garbage back and stretch it. it gets lighter and turns kinda grey. the film on seeds can be
      scraped offand some time you will see these little bits of seed film in your rolling
      tray.

      then again maybe i am full of it!

      Mike and Brenda:
      Thats it, I give up. I'm sick of giving you the benefit of the doubt. I ordered Shiva Shanti
      seeds on JULY 17, you told me you've sent it 4 times, I gotten no seeds, no customs
      letters, and now no response to my emails. Heres how stupid I am: I actually felt
      GUILTY when you lied to me and said you were re-shipping my order! I didn't want you
      people to be out any money! What an idiot I was! You must have had a good laugh then
      eh? Dumb HONU doesn't even know when he is being ripped off...

      And what makes it evil, what makes my stomach hurt, is that Mike posts like he is this
      100% honest, decent man just trying to make a living and sell seeds. Mike, you are a liar
      and a con man... and a thief. HOW DARE YOU pretend otherwise! Looking back at your
      emails, I dont think there is a grain of truth in any of them. Thats what really hurts. I
      believed the bullshit i read over at cannabis.com, I wanted nothing but to become a loyal
      customer, and you took my money and never looked back.

      I was angry at Bongblaster for the way he ran you off the seeds board, but you are
      worse. at least BB acknowledges being a ruthless prick. But he never ripped people off!
      You hide behind your "morals and principles" like a coward. You play games with
      people's minds. That, to me, is evil.

      So what happens now? Well, I have decided I'll never see the seeds or the money again, I
      am not going to play Mike's game of 'he who complains loudest gets seeds'like Mike did
      with DDHD2. I'd rather have something Mike will never give- the truth. I'd really like to
      know why he ripped me off, that is worth the $70.

      some regular grey, and some HUGE grey seeds.....it came in a 10 pound brick so im sure
      there all kinds of genes in there...ill have to grow them out to see which i like....
      my question is......
      lets say i have a huge mom perfect...i tested her buds from cloning...and i know she is
      the one....i will take lots of clones before she naturally flowers and take indoors to keeo
      going
      but what about the pollenation....
      do i just get the best male in all the others.... i know to pick the one that has the
      caractoristics i want my babies to have but its mainly the smell that i want...so do i pick
      the one who leaves
      are the most fragrant..or do you guys smoke the tips from your males to test them.
      now im a little worried about the blueberry....i want to keep that chocclate smell....
      ssssssssshit now i dont know what the hell to do...i think im just going to cross it with a
      male just like it....
      if i do that year after year..without crossing it out..how long until it looses its punch....
      i know a guy that brought some tai back from the war..
      the hippies around tell me thast his was the most fire theve evr had when he first came

      david - the peruvians aren't mine to distribute. They are from another breeder
      who trusted Heavan's Stairway with a few sample seeds. I am testing out the
      seeds for Richard at Heavan's Stairway with the idea that they are not mine. I'm
      not sure if I'm even allowed to make hybrids with them.I'm pretty sure that
      if the end results are good, they will become a new product for Richard, but just
      not from me.

      outdoors - I don't grow outside, so it would be hard for me to breed for outdoor
      genetics. I had some early pearl genes come my way this summer, but they
      didn't make the cut and are gone. I always thought blueberry would do well
      outside, but even though it is a fast flowerer, many growers in the US reported
      that it was late at starting to flower. I do know that romulan kicks in a greenhouse
      if you can manipulate the light period or heat it in the late fall.

      Eric, congrats on the new genetics. That chocolate tai sounds interesting. Mowie
      Wowie was the name of some kick ass herb that I smoked back in 84. Definate
      1-2 hit wonder stuff. It was grown locally by a family friend who frequented
      Hawaii.

      Breeding - Is white widow even an F1? From what I here, it is quite variable
      indicating that it is just a hybrid and not an F1. Anyway, crossing an F1 to an
      unrelated F1 will give you an F2 and not an F1. F1's only come from crossing
      two stable inbred lines or strains. Your right about your conclusions about vigour
      though. The problem is that many who grow a seed would like to be able to
      predict the outcome. That is why one would cross two similar plants. It all
      depends on what you want to get from the cross.

      Westcoast - I think Lothar is into videos, he pops in from time to time. Your ideas
      sound interesting and could really help out alot of people. We didn't put bcga
      together to create a comercial enterprise and therefore don't think we would be
      interested in selling them though. Your best best may be to track down some
      supplliers of the hemp and grow shops and get them to distribute them.

      As for donations for the webpage, there really is no need, but thanks for asking.
      The webpage space is free, and I just add to it from time to time when I can. As
      you can see, I don't dedicate alot of time keeping it up to date.

      indicaa - I kinda lost track of the three and fourleafed blueberry seedlings I had.
      As they grew, they slowly reverted to two leaf pattern. I never tagged them so
      eventually lost track of which ones started with the three leaves so have no idea
      if they turned out to be males or females. One did remain a runt and was
      eventually tossed, but the rest blended.

      Bill Clinton - thanks and good luck finding the Nigerian seeds. I think I seen some
      listed at a seedbank someplace but can't remeber where. I'll keep my eyes open.

      Ive ever seen, smell like mint, only wanted $160 for the lot. I agree completely

      now you should get a damn good cross from this right....i think that if you cross
      say two plant s from seed you order from same (say white widow..same package)
      well the resulting f2's will have more of the recesive traits...but crossing an f1 to
      a totally unrelated f1
      should give you a good f1 not an f2..right....like if i buy..say white widow..f1
      green house seeds (this would be a cross of the original white widow and
      something else) is this how it works.....or if i buy white widow from grren house ..it
      is original white widow....what will happen if i cross the best mom to the best

      warm deluxe MH and Eye Hortilux HPS. That is after I get ahead on the seedlings
      I have on the go.

      Stix, sorry to hear about the bad luck you had with NL/Haze. I have a buddy with
      a clone, and now hope it is from some of the older stock.

      I have some peruvian stock that I'm testing out for Heavan's Stairway. The
      skunks are setting buds real nicely but the sativas are starting very slow. I was
      just able to sex them this week and they went into flower on sept 11. Very high
      female ratio, 7/7 on the skunks, 3/4 on the sativas. I hope this doesn't mean that
      I have to worry about hermies popping up.

      Mota The Lamps are hung from the centre of the area on a pulley and spaced 2
      ft apart, the are rotated180 deg every day the reflectors are specular ally
      wide beam from 21st century garden in theUK.

      stix I agree with you entirely the only good thing Iíve had from the dam recently
      was blue berry and that came from sag direct and they got that from this side!
      We tried NL 5 * H got it over the counter from sensiís shop and that turned out to
      be a straight NL. We also tried AK from bluebird [serious seeds] we didn't rate
      thateither. I have some Jack Herer to try when I have time we will see what
      they do.
      All the best Ot1

      Hi folks, just finished/gave-up-on some NL5xHaze from Sensi and Im very
      disappointed. The original cross by Neville was/still-is one of the best Ive grown.
      This new cross from Sensi however is very disappointing. The orig. leaned to
      indica, tight large buds and more potent than anything. The cross Im workin with
      is the opposite in almost every way. Sativa, really loose buds, unwilling to finish
      up(they've had one of my budding rooms tied up for so long Ive lost track), and
      the potentcy Ive sampled is very average. Anyone have any better luck with
      todays cross? Im using about 40 watts sq/ft, maybe I need more light or
      something, dont know but I was surprised how poorly this cross performed. The
      strains I got from SSSC and The Seed Bank circa 85-90 seemed to have more
      vigor and potency than most of what I see from a-dam today, does anyone else
      who has experience with strains from both then and now have a comment on
      this?

      oldtimer1,
      Are your lights on a sun circle or mover or are they stationary?If stationary
      do you rotate the plants?

      PAZ,

      Hi Islander [Iíve posted bits of this elsewhere so I hope iííííím not boring any one]
            you might like to know about the soil/peat based system used by our
      Co-Op:-
      We use an organic soil and peat based system, using 8 inch 4 litre pots this fits
      42or with 7.24 * 8.5 inch tall 4 litre fit 48 to 20 square feet.From
      rooting through the plants are fed and watered with a dilute organic feed every
      three days about 3/4 to 1 litre per plant.Humidity is kept between 35 and
      50%, temperature minimum 65 maximum 85° F.The grow area is
      surrounded by mylar drapes. In addition the plants are given a spray once or
      twice a week with a mix of 1 ml 35% H2O2, 10 ml Maxicrop and one drop of
      wetting agent to 1 litre of soft water this is done untilplants start to form
      proper flower clusters. Lighting is at 50 w per sq ft using a mix 600 w son t plus
      and 400 w clear metal halide. [venture make the best halide lamps] We have
      found that halides improve the quality of the stone most with sativas and to a
      lesser extent with indicas.We also decrement time from veg to flower
      period, in fact a lot of what we do is to suit the types of plant we use which are
      mostly on the sativa side.
      The Bio Bizz products we use in litres by volume are:-
      Premix [a composted base fertiliser]5 litres
      Wormest [some sort of worm casts]10 litres
      the rest of the ingredients get from a horticultural sundrysman
      sterilised organic loam15 litres
      perlite15 litres
      sedge peat25 litres
      moss peat30 litres
      TOTAL100 litres
      1 tspn compost wetting agent
      calcified seaweed or second best dolomite lime added to balance mix to ph 6.5
      [ about a medium cup ]
      We have tried their premixed composts and about 10 other mixes in our own
      trials and the above produces the best results consistently time after time.
      Method :-
      when ready cuttings are moved to 3 or 4 L pots under 18 hr lighting and just get
      water when needed. A week afterthey have rooted throughwe start
      feeding with a mix of Bio bizz grow and bloom 20 ml of each to 10 Levery
      water from then till we take down the harvest there is no with draw period and it
      gives a sweet smoke.We like to keep the ratio of phosphorus lower than
      the potash we have tried just the bloom at the end and you have flush at the end
      with a weeks withdrawal of fert even then the taste is not so good and there is
      very little difference in finished weights.
      Bio Bizz bloom N 2% P 6% K 3.5% Mg .3% Cal .3%
      Bio Bizz Grow N 3% P 2% K 8%

      Question have any of you tried using higher potash than phosphorus
      ratios and what were your impressions?

      These are the rates we use with 35% H2O2 :-
      For sterilising equipment(pots, trays, watering cans and Hydro pipes,
      trays, pumps etc)
      10mls per litre.
      For first watering of compost while sowing seeds. 2.5 to a max of
      5mls to the litre.
      For watering seedlings or cuttings..5 to a max 1 ml to the litre and in
      addition when misting 10 mls of Maxicrop of similar and one or two drops of
      wetting agent .

      With the above system we use 1k mixed light [ 600 w son t plus and 400 w Mh ]
      to cover 20 sq ft5 ft * 4 area.
      Out of about 30 grows a year the lowest yield per sq ft was58.5 grams and
      the best 95.24 grams. This represents 1.17 k to 1.9 kilo per 1 k of lighting. All
      plants used are clones from selected mums. These mums have been selected
      over many years from growing out hundreds of seeds and only picking the very
      best . Selection is all important! So you can get good yields but it takes a lot of
      time, meticulous recording and a quite a lot of work. IMHO specs given by the
      seed coís areunreliable to say the least. Hope this helpsthere is no
      quick easy way!!! This is only one method there must be hundreds out there
      hope this helps a little bit``grow well.î
      All the best Ot1.
      By the way the above yields represent good bud the rest and the trim go through
      the scuff machine.
