    In your situation, I'd make a bunch of auto or semi-auto seeds and plant a bunch during late winter, spring, early summer. Like you said, there's probably little to no eradication during that time. It could a great time to be growing and less stressful too. I have a couple buddies that go nuts here during the winter because the no parental supervision going on, ha ha!

    If you got the time and seeds, then yeah, it's just all bonus weed, ha ha! How'd the hole digging go? I'm digging holes today myself, but it's all just from 1 gallon pots so it's not anything to complain about.

    Since I'm only growing for personal smoke, the small plants would be better for me anyway. I'm turning all my old weed into oil just so it takes up less space storing it, but that is starting to pile up too.

    Yeah the hole digging sucked. Dug 12 holes works out about 29 gallon holes. Plus I done a fair bit of riding looking at new mountains to grow. Making some crosses with gth1 ,cssh, and trippy gorilla in a couple of weeks. Im waiting on the cssh x black d.o.g seeds to mature to see how they go. Got my cloning kits ready so I'll take them out in the rainforest and start cloning next week.

    Seed Junky Genetics - Wifi3 x Animal Mints. One spray of regalia in early flower seems to have remarkably improved its mold resistance and its been real wet here.

    Keep us updated on that one. I've been wanting to get a WiFi cross. I was thinking Joystick, but that one looks pretty nice. How many Joysticks do you have growing waterproof? And how many of the WiFi x AM?

    Here's some Blueberry Hashplant #2 nugs. These are some beastly yielding plants.

    I'm playing tourist over here in the Hawaiian section. I like to come here when it's winter out.
    :D
    Beautiful bud. I'm going to have to put Seed Junky on my short list.
    I bet Joystick is a great cross. Bohdi always delivers the fire.
    I grew out Swamp Boys Seeds 3D(WiFi#3 x Nigerian) and was very impressed with her in yield, potency and vigor. I bet she would love Hawaii.
    She ran 12 weeks indoors and was very mold resistant.

    I only have one joystick. I popped half the pack and got all males except for one female and I'm pretty sure its snow lotus dominant. She's frosty though.

    The wifi x am is just a cut I've held onto for the last couple years. I had a prettier looking pheno that was more resistant to mold but she didnt have much nose to it so I let her go. I still have the other half of the pack to search through.

    What's the best area to live in Hawaii for growing, folks? Thats where we would LOVE to be this winter. Hoping for next winter though, for sure. We have a friend who's gone there a few times and it sounds bloody great.

    The most ideal areas with the most sun are usually the most expensive. The cheapest land/homes are on the Big Island but on the east side of the island, which also happens to have the highest concentration of growers in the state. It can be pretty wet here at times but with a greenhouse you will be fine.

    Are you in AK? You should come for real when it's winter out, ha ha! We get plenty of snowbirds from AK.

    Thanks for the info waterproof. Too bad on the abundance of males. It happens sometimes.

    I'd like to get a Wifi cross and I'd probably go with Bodhi for it, but I'm not sure if I'd pick Time Bandit or Joystick. Either one would probably be good, but I'd want either a 50/50 pheno or a Wifi leaning one so that's why I was asking you to see if you had a mix of phenos from the Joystick or if the Snow Lotus dominated the cross.

    Do you keep many clones or mostly grow from seed?

    The south and west sides of any of the islands are sunny and dry almost everyday of the year, but they are also the most crowded and most expensive sides too. If you're just growing small-ish plants for mostly personal consumption than anywhere should be fine if you can find a suitable house for growing. If you're thinking commercial then on Maui most of the commercial growers live Upcountry. Specifically Haiku and Kula. Greenhouses are a good idea most anywhere Upcountry and further out South or East like Hana or Kaupo (the wet side of Kaupo). Actually parts of Kanaio and Kaupo (the dry side of Kaupo) would be really great spots to grow, but you have to haul water out there. There's almost no county water out there and it doesn't ever rain enough to fill up catchment tanks and it's all pretty far out there, but it is some of my favorite area on this island.

    Like waterproof said, the east side of the Big Island is the only affordable place to live besides some parts of Molokai, but it rains like crazy. Mountain View, where I used to live gets an average of 160" of rain per year. It's the wettest inhabited place in the US so yeah, greenhouses are a good idea.

    And I mentioned Molokai, but you don't want to move there unless you know how to befriend locals like it's your job, ha ha! They even say, "Don't come unless you're invited" and that's for real.

    If money doesn't matter then I'd look at the south or west sides of Kauai, Big Island or Maui. The north shore of Maui is nice and there's pretty decent growing weather if you don't get out too far east and Hawi on the Big Island is really nice too.

    I left out Oahu just because I don't know the island very well and there's a lot of people there and it's not my thing, but a lot of people like it there apparently.

    You're just playing bias because he was one of your TnT homies, ha ha. Though I'm sure he was/is a pretty good grower. He flew over here (Maui) and he gave me a bunch of Mickey Kush F2 seeds and I taught him how to make some decent hash oil and "gave" him some flowers, ha ha. I wanted to call him a few weeks ago, but I lost his number and I don't think I could find him on Facebook either. If you talk to him you're welcome to let him know I was trying to get ahold of him :bigjoint:

    Where you at mr sunshine? Cali?
