    Hello and welcome to my grow journal, here you will find that everything I do is very different than what you normally read in forum grow journals. In no way am I saying that my way is better, it is just different and I also do not say that others should try any of it as it requires a different way of thinking and unlearning things a tad. The good news is that if you follow you might learn a few things that you can do to improve your herb.

    I breed as part of my hobby, my grows are just for me and I enjoy making new strains. I have made several that are popular and growing around the world but you won't find em in any seedbanks. I just finished a seed run where I have made bout 50 more new strains. The current grow is a bud run and started 3 weeks ago, 2 were flipped then, 2 were flipped 2 weeks ago, 1 was flipped 1 week ago and 5 were flipped this morning. The Beast (tall one in the back) is first time ever grown and the 5 Thunder Express flipped this morning is the first ever bud run (I have taken her to F2 in seed runs thus far)

    I flower & veg with T5's, I use a medium based on Al Tapla's gritty mix which is sunshine mix #4 mixed 50/50 with kitty litter (calcined clay) (Al uses turface, it is the same thing just cost more) My garden is a completely open space in my basement, I do not have any intake or exhaust fans and I have never owned a carbon scrubber as my garden never stinks. I do not worry about light leaks, I have plenty of em and have only had 3 plants herm in the last 5 years IMO hermies are 100% genetics (I know most won't agree lol) I use all chem nutes start to finish and I never flush at the end. I use very different light timings, for veg I use what is called Gaslight Veg it is 12 on, 5.5 off, 1.5 on, 5 off and for flower I do 6.5 on, .5 off, 4 on, 13 off.

    You can check the link in my sig to see pics from the recent harvest, it also includes several independent smoke reports of some of my strains :)

    Here is what the garden looks like as of this morning ,,,,,,,,

    The strains in this run are all mine, tall one in the back is The Beast, to the right of it is a Namaste, the 3 in the front right are Colorado Thunderfuck, and the ones on the left (flipped this morning) are my Thunder Express.

    Here are a few tighter shots of the Beast S_SAM_3453.JPG S_SAM_3454.JPG

    They were gotten by Gypsy (ICMAG) at La Reunion years ago and he gifted em to Uncle Ben and Uncle Ben gifted em to me. I actually have one hell of a seed collection, but most of the ones listed are my strains. The Oxacan, Zamal & Lebonese are land races The Urban Menace is Classics, The Zamaldelica is ACE, the rest are mine, the Borealis is my Northern Lights named after the Aurora Borealis

    Must be a hard life to have the problems you have. So many beans, so little space.

    It won't be anytime soon. My wife grew up in Denver but had no family there since her dad died. She does want to go back just for fun but has a very demanding career. Now that I think about it, she does need a vacation...
