    The white one is Dragon Fruit...such elaborate flowers for a hostile plant like this. All to attract a pollinator... bats mostly. IMG_20170517_144620.jpg IMG_20170517_142141.jpg IMG_20170517_081203.jpg IMG_20170517_085530.jpg

    I've become the chemical guy at work. I used to have a license so they must figure I know a little something about pesticides...sprayed imidicloprid and some other shit I never heard of for mites. Imidicloprid works as a systemic also. Merit is its brand name. Works for a whole year as I recall as a systemic. Not for Cannabis in flower however and not at all as a systemic. We have Aloe mite, thrips and mealy in the gh. Not now though...I genocided those mother fuckers.
    Now I know why there are no bees anywhere to be found...they must've all been killed off. We're gonna do some big time beneficial nematode inoculations. Works wonders on fungus gnats.

    Tricocereus 'Flying Saucer' just before bloom and yesterday the blooms opened. Positively pornographic. Today they were limp and tomorrow they'll be mush. IMG_20170517_144620.jpg IMG_20170518_080229.jpg

    Nice.
    In this picture I have a small tired red one and one that I flowered in a cup of water.
    Cloning is incredibly easy sitting in water, I have about 8 plants, all of them are clones from the original plants going back at least 10 years.
    The MJ plant was a clone that I cut at 10 days before flip while still in veg and put in a cup of water. It is now 9 1/2 weeks into flowering.
