    Yeah! It's Bud Worm Season. Pics

    Yeah....the outdoor battle. Always seems to be something. I can't imagine what it's like to farm cannabis outdoors at scale, commercially. They must spray heavy to keep everything off them. Once they flower I don't like to let my plants get hit with rain.

    So you spray the plants with soapy water? What does this prevent? I'm curious. Thanks in advance.

    Yeah! It's Bud Worm Season. Pics

    Just over a month into the season and I did an inspection this afternoon. On the lowest leaves some were filled with eggs. I snipped them off and others I just wiped them off with a paper towel. If I didn't lift the leaf up I would not have noticed. They tend to stick the eggs under the leaf to...

    Leaf issue on flowering outdoor Durban Poison

    I think the worst thing you could do is starting throwing nutrients at those plants. I can't see from the pictures what kind of pots are you growing in? Buddy of mine was using 5 gallon plastic buckets one summer and got hit with the same thing. The plastic heating in the sun caused the color...

    How to deal with the dreaded 'Hay / Fresh Cut Grass' smell. Created for Newbies...

    I've discovered the hay smell tends to be strongest before you final trim and remove excess leaf matter. After drying on the rack for 7-10 days I do final trim and throw them in a big paper grocery bag for another week. Then I bag it and burp it for a month.

    Absolutely massive aphid infestation. To organophosphate or not to organophosphate?

    Wow. Just wow. Can you suck those things off with the end of a vacuum cleaner? Holy hell how do those get inside? Soil?

    Yeah! It's Bud Worm Season. Pics

    Good question. Not sure on the potassium, I imagine it sterilizes and disinfects in some manner. Need to do my homework on that one. Due to the weather in my neck of the woods, going late into fall, mold was always a concern. It too is a formidable foe. I started growing outdoors in 5 gallon...

    SGG Midnight Frost....

    I'm in the northeast, a few days removed from November. The indicas hold up so well in cold weather. Grew some SGG this year for the first time, the last plants to be harvested......

    I like it. Sterilize the fuck out of it. The cleaner the better.

    Yeah! It's Bud Worm Season. Pics

    I only grow outdoor every summer. Every harvest I'm reminded how important it is to wash the flower. I do a good wet trim before the wash. You have to go through it with a fine tooth comb. Literally checking the inside of every bud. Some damage can be hidden. Tiny flies stuck on the bud, etc...

    Yeah! It's Bud Worm Season. Pics

    How many of you wash your outdoor bud? I remember when I first saw a video of somebody doing that I thought they were nuts. I started taking down my plants this week and was washing a batch up in 5 gall home depot bucket, with water, cup of peroxide. You can see all the dust, small flies and...

    Not really. They can handle overnight temps of low 50 degrees. They usually feed at dawn or dusk.

    Are BagSeeds worth it ?

    I always love tossing one or two mystery seeds every year. Part of the fun is the unknown. My son gave about 100 assorted he had collected up.

    Harvest?

    Im treating with BT every three days right up until harvest. Great product. You have to spray early and often. Once in a while you'll get one that will sneak by.
