Wink and a nod indeed, it’s refreshing to see producers like you who are aware of the marketplace realities and still keeps it real in terms of testing for honest numbers. Ain’t nothing wrong in knowing what the guys next door are up to in terms of tricks when it comes to testing.

hats off to you my friend.
Thanks... unfortunately, honesty can get you at the back of the line for orders if your THC is not 22% and up. Im sure all of these "out of State" people that came here showed some Okies how to cheat the labs.

Well, after 3 years of growing indoors, I've finally got thrips in my mother tent. I spotted a few leafs with pitted areas that were grey/whiteish ... got the loop out... thrips. Bounced over to the Garden Supply Center and got some Captain Jacks. Sprayed the tops and bottoms of my mother, and clones. Thankfully, the main grow room has been empty for the past month or so, but it might be a good idea to bomb it before the next run which is starting in Oct. I hosed down the tent from top to bottom. Hopefully, this will knock em out. I think I caught it early. Im not a fan of spraying while the lights are on, but I wanted to get on top of this. So I turned the lights down to 20%, and will wait another 5 hours before they go out and turn them back up for the 6 am awakening.

Lights are on the main grow room? Now more summer grows?

Do you have to touch the buds again once you run them through these?
Yes.. The GreenBroz does about 80% of the work, then we hand finish. Some strains go through it and you don't have to do anything to them, just inspect. But otherwise, we'll have to get the occasional crows foot, or just trim closer by hand. It's a big time saver tho.

Cheers for reply.
Cool sounds good.
Great looking grow also.
Do you pull all fan leaves off before you hang to dry?
Or do you just dry and strip from stem then straight into machine?

Yes, we pull all fan leafs, and the tips of smaller leafs that may not have any tricombes on them, and then do a 2 week dry at 65 degrees/60% RH.

Sorry man.. I missed your comment. We just finished up a grow in the Main room, and have taken genetics we like and put them in the mother tent. So for now, Im getting my mothers ready to clone, and start back up again in Oct. ....maybe late Sept. We just wanted to take a break and go on vacation, reset the mind (because it can get monotonous)... so yeah, the main room is dark... but not for too long! ;)

Right now tho,.. we're kinda on the fence. The last strains we ran (besides Dosi Whoa!) didn't produce the THC we needed for the market. Great Terps on them, but we're either going to run all Dosi (4 time proven winner at 22% THC/ 4.65 Terps).. or try other breeders....Im leaning towards all Dosi Whoa!... I kinda know what Im gonna get there. Low THC (~15%) from the other strains are hard to move, even tho the terps are great. And if you can move it, the pricing sucks.

Actually, my favorite strain this past round was Crescendo RBX1... 11% THC/ 4.65 terps. Very mellow high with a good body stone... then sleep like a baby.
