    Since I noticed that in all 31 pages of the previous iteration of this thread were pretty much ALL repeat questions asked by people who couldn't bother to read what had already been asked. I went through the entire thread and found all the terms and acronyms that were missing or incorrect and fixed it. Only took me a couple hours and a couple bowls....but it was worth it. Now instead of asking the same questions OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!!! (IE; What does RO stand for??) They can read it on the initial post.
    As I frequent the site daily, feel free to send me any missing terms or acronyms and i'll edit the posts to include them. Hope this helps and GL GROWING
    {PS; The Credit for the original work, without which I would have had no basis in which to start, goes to MajorToke for his great work. Along with the others in the previous thread who answered 30 pages questions for people who could have skipped the question with 10 minutes of reading ;-) THANK YOU ALL!!! THIS IS YOUR WORK!}

    18/6: Time normally associated with the vegetative stage of growth i.e. 18 hours of light
    to 6 of darkness.

    12/12: Timing used to initiate the flowering stage of the plant i.e. 12 hours light to 12
    hours darkness.

    ##/## - The first number refers to the number of hours the lights are ON, and second number refers to the number of hours the lights are OFF.

    Abiotic stress - Non-living environmental factors such as frost, drought, excessive heat,
    etc. that can have harmfvl effects on plants.

    Abscisic Acid - Mediates stress tolerance responses in higher plants, is a key signal
    compound that regulates stomatal aperture and, in concert with other plant signaling
    compounds, is implicated in mediating responses to pathogens and wounding.

    In seeds, ABA promotes seed development, embryo maturation, synthesis of storage
    products (proteins and lipids), desiccation tolerance, is involved in maintenance of
    dormancy (inhibition of germination), and apoptosis. As well, ABA affects plant
    architecture, including root growth and morphology, and root-to-shoot ratios

    Aeroponics - Is the growing of plants in a container in which the roots are suspended in a
    nutrient mist rather than in a solution. The most popular container for aeroponics is an
    enclosed A-frame constructed of styrofoam boards. The plants are placed in holes along
    the sloped sides of the frame. The nutrient mist is delivered to the roots by a vaporizer or
    by special attachments available with drip irrigation kits. The mist clings to the roots. Any
    excess runs down the inside of the frame, is collected at the bottom, and is recycled back
    to the nutrient reservoir.

    Alternating Leaf - As the plant grows, in the begining, every leaf (that is not damaged)
    will have another leaf growing from exactly 180 degrees around the stem. They grow in
    pairs. When the plants mature, the leaves will grow one at a time. that is a leaf will pop
    out on one side, then, up the stem/ btanch, another will grow. (ie; Alternating)

    Auto-Flower (Strain) - An Auto-Flowering strain is a strain of cannabis that automatically
    flowers when it reaches maturity. Meaning you don't have to Force Flower as you would
    with other plants (ie; changing the light cycle to 12/12, thereby causing the plant to
    flower, anticipating the onset of the fall, and then winter, seasons. Auto flower strains
    will flower and live out their entire life cycle from sprout to harvest, under 24 hours of
    constant light, eliminating the need for a timer. Though they WILL still flourish under
    18/6, if the grower wants to allow the room to cool.

    Auxins - are plant hormones governing many biological processes in higher plants such
    as cell enlargement and division, differentiation of vascular tissue, apical dominance, root
    initiation and signaling.

    Bag Seed - A seed obtained from a bag of finished cannabis. (Usually the genetic strain of
    the seed is unknown, which is why we call it a bagseed)

    Ballast - Provides current and power to the light. Here it mostly refers to the above for

    H.I.D. (high intensity discharge) lighting.

    Blood Meal --This organic fertilizer is very high in nitrogen and is very soluble in water
    (unlike most other dry organic fertilizers). It also contains plant growth regulators. All
    this together means that its effect is strong and quick, but its power will only last a short
    while, especially in wet weather. When applying blood meal, take care, as it will easily
    burn a plant's leaves.

    Buds - The reason this website exists! -The part of the flowering female plant that
    contains high concentrations of THC and other psychoactive ingredients.

    Bud Leaves - the small leaves that grow in the buds of the plant, usually covered in
    trichomes when harvested.

    Calyxes - "the usually green outer whorl of a flower consisting of sepals" -

    Canopy - The top branches of a plant, usually shading the lower branches, except when
    branch training methods are used. (See LST, SCROG, and SOG)

    Cannabidiol (CBD) is NOT a byproduct of THC, it's a Cannabinoid in it's own right and
    works in conjuction with THC to influence the start and duration of the high.

    Cannabinol (CBN) is a byproduct of THC and is produced via THC degradion from
    heat/air/light etc as you describe. It only has a maximum of about 10% THC content and
    therefore adds little to the 'high' over and above making the user feel 'sleepy'.

    Neither are responsible for the 'stoney' part of the high nor the 'psychoactive' affect the
    THC has - that is produced soley by THC.

    Canoe-ing? - When a plants leaves curl upwards into a V-Shape, usually caused by heat,
    or malnutrition.

    CFL - Meaning 'Compact Flouresent Light' AKA 'The Big Curly Bulb'. High Lumen output,
    small, and power efficient lights. While not the MOST effective, they work very well for
    their size and power consumption.

    CFM - Cubic Feet per Minute. This describes the volume of air that is displaced in 1 minute
    (see ventilation).

    Chemical Nutrients - See 'Synthetic Nutrients'

    dajosh42069 Well-Known Member

    Chlorophyll - The green pigment in leaves. Chlorophyll pigment is produced in the
    chloroplasts of leaf, stem and flower cells. Chlorophyll pigment dominates all other
    pigments present including the xanthophylls and carotenes. Chlorophyll captures the sun's energy which is used to manufacture sugar from carbon dioxide and water. Chlorophylls
    are constantly being "used up" and thus are continually manufacture by the plant,
    provided the environmental conditions are appropriate.

    Cloning(s)/Cuttings -- Sometimes the easiest (and fastest) way to grow a new plant is
    not from seed, but asexually from cuttings. Cuttings are taken from roots, stems, or
    leaves and encouraged to regenerate by providing ideal growing conditions and
    (oftentimes) applying rooting hormones. Unlike plants started from seed, a plant grown
    from a cutting will have exactly the same characteristics of the parent plant.

    Colas - "The female flowers develop tightly together to form dense clusters (racemes) or
    buds, cones, or colas"- Mel Frank marijuana Grower's Guide. Cola's are the buds you see.

    Composting - The process by which organic materials mixed together in specific
    conditions create a nutrient-rich medium.

    Curing - Process of placing the dried harvest in tightly sealed, sterile, jar, which should be
    stored in a dry, dark, cool place. Then according to preference open the jar for a certain
    amount of time everyday to release co2 and moisture and this slowly dries the crop, thus
    improving taste and over all quality.

    Cotyledons - small round leaves that are the first to appear on a small seedling, they are
    not considered ‘true leaves? and often fall off of the plant early in the growth stage.

    DWC - Means 'Deep Water Culture'. In its most basic form its a plastic bin full of hydro
    solution to a certain level on net pots suspended by way of holes in the containers lid and
    the plants roots are basically fed buy an air pump bubbling the solution. However, this is a
    very basic description of the practice.

    Decarboxylation -This occurs after buds are harvested and during the curing process. The
    THC loses a CO2 molecule, which then makes the THC psychoactive. This process is why
    drying and curing buds after harvest is crucial to the high that the bud produces.

    Feminized Seeds - seeds which have a higer likelyhood of sprouting female

    FFOF - Means 'FoxFarm Ocean Forest', It's a soil commonly used by growers for it's
    properties and ability to grow.

    Fish emulsion -- This is a liquid organic fertilizer with a NPK ratio of about 4-1-1 to 7-2-2.
    It is water soluble and thus immediately available to plants. It is valued for its high
    nitrogen content.

    FIM - Acronym for “F*** I Missed!? A variant of the topping technique, where only a
    portion of the growth tip is removed, causing an increase in resulting cola sites. (See

    Flo, Flouro, Floro's -- Fluorescents come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. There are
    compacts, twist bulbs and circle bulbs. They all work the same way. They have a starter
    and ballast which help provide a steady and regulated amount of electricity to the light.

    FLIR - Means 'Forward-Looking Infrared', It is a thermal imaging process whereby
    differences in heat emission are measured and reflected on a videotape. Heat
    concentration is indicated on a videotape on a spectrum of light to dark, with bright white
    showing intense heat. Increasingly, law enforcement personnel are using FLIR thermal
    imaging to detect indoor marijuana growing operations. However, the Supreme Court in
    the U.S. has recently banned the use of FLIR to find these operations.

    Flush - the act of cleansing a plant’s roots of nutrients and contaminants by giving the
    plant large amounts of water (usually equal to 3 times the volume of soil the plant is in).

    Foliar Feeding - The act of giving water and/or nutrients to the plant through the leaves
    instead of through the roots.

    Force Flowering - Giving a female plant a photoperiod of 12/12 to force the plant into
    producing buds. Doing this mimics the natural light cycle of the sun and the Fall season,
    and then the winter season, approches.

    Garlic - When planted in the same pot/area as your plants, will act as a natural systemic
    insecticide to both Greenflys and Blackflys. The plants absorb it from the growing garlic.
    It DOES NOT affect the plants scent or taste, can also be used for the same purpose in
    other plants.

    Genotype - Is the plants characteristics as received from its parents genetic traits.

    Germinate - To open a seed and allow growth by planting it, or using various methods to
    allow the seed to open and the first root to come out before planting it. Allowing the seed
    a better chance of breaching the surface.

    GH - Means 'General Hydroponics'

    dajosh42069 Well-Known Member

    GA - Means 'Gibberellic Acid' - A hormone used to promote plant growth, especially that of seedlings, and obtained from the fungus Gibberella fujikoroi (GA) is used to reduce flowering and fruiting which maximizes growth and minimizes pollen transmitted. GA is also used in
    mature plants to increase the fruiting capacity by stimulating the development of lateral
    shoots and spurs.

    Harvesting - The act or process of gathering a crop. By trimming the buds off, or branches that hold them, and using one of the many methods of drying. Once dried, the option is then available to cure. (See Curing)

    Herbs - Aromatic plants used for seasoning, medicinal purposes, or garnishes. Aromatic
    herbs are the ones that have fragrant or smelly leaves or flowers. Cannabis leaves are sometimes used as a Herb.

    Hermie/Hermaphridite - A plant that changes sex midway through it's life cycle, to have
    both FEMALE and MALE characteristics. Due in part to many factors, but primarily due to
    stress (ie; light stress, heat stress, nute stress) or improper dark cycle. (ie; not sealing off
    the grow area properly and not letting the plant get 100% COMPLETE darkness)

    HID - High Intensity Discharge (lighting)

    HPS - The best light available today for growing marijuana. High Pressure Sodium lights
    are very bright and very efficient. This light has a red/orange spectrum that is ideal for
    the flowering phase. With enough of these kind of lights you too can grow those
    centerfold buds. HPS comes in a wide variety of wattages from 70 watts up to 1000 watts.

    Hormone - A biochemical product of a specific cell or tissue that causes a change or
    activity in a cell or tissue located elsewhere in an organism.

    Hydroponics - The growing of plants without soil, instead using a medium like clay
    pebbles, rockwool-floc or perlite and vermiculite mixture. And giving the plant all the
    nutrients through the water the roots are in.

    Humus - A complicated material formed during the breakdown of organic matter. One of
    its components, humic acid, provides many binding sites for plant nutrients, such as
    calcium, iron, potassium, sulfur and phosphorus. These nutrients are stored in the humic
    acid molecule in a form readily available to plants, and are released when the plants
    require them.

    Hybrid -- Often refers to a plant or variety that has been developed by interbreeding two
    or more varieties, species, or genera

    IBL - Imbred line, a homogeneous strain that shows uniform growth characteristics from

    Indica -- Indica is a great plant to grow indoors as well as outdoors due to its low lighting
    requirements and tight internode spacing, also offering resistance to fungus and pests,
    early maturation tendencies, and dense flower production. Indica's come from colder
    climates exhibiting the traits described above by acclimating to the environment from
    whence they came. Their stout stature and extremely wide leaflets make them easy to
    identify. An Indica generally produces a hard hitting, tiresome, sedative stone, and will
    take around 45 to 60 days to finish flowering.

    Leggy --If seedlings and plants do not get enough sunlight, they grow tall and thin stalks
    as they seek sunlight. These "leggy" plants have a difficult time supporting the weight of
    the plant and is easily damaged. (See Stretching)

    Light-burn - When the heat from a light burns the plant.

    Lollipopping - Refers to cutting the bottom branches off of a plant to allow the top
    portion to bud more vigorously. Term refers to the 'lollipop' shape of the stalk and bud.
    ( )
    ( ) <---bud
    ( )
    l<-----stalk (trimmed of side branches)

    Lumens -- One lumen is equal to the amount of light emitted by one candle that falls on
    one square foot of surface one foot away.

    LST - Meamns Low-Stress Training, the technique of manipulating the branches in order
    to reduce plant height, expose certain branches to light, and/or distribute hormones to
    lower branches of the plant to encourage larger buds.

    M² - Meters Squared.

    Macronutrients - For a plant, there are nine major elements essential for healthy growth;
    these are called macronutrients. They are: carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen (which are all
    three derived from air and water); and nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, sulfur,
    and magnesium (from the soil).

    Micronutrients - There are about eight nutrients essential to plant growth and health
    that are only present in very small quantities. These are manganese, boron, copper, iron,
    chlorine, cobalt, molybdenum, and zinc.

    Medium - A soil or soil-less mix used to start or re-plant houseplants, flowers,
    vegetables, and other plants

    Mids - Medium grade cannabis. (See Shwag)

    Mottling of Leaves -- Discoloration or spotting of leaves.

    MV - Means 'Mercury Vapor' And is the type of lights that were used for streetlights many years ago.
    Not very good for growing because it doesn't provide enough of the right kind of light
    spectrum. While they do provide a littleof the blue spectrum, MV also produces too much
    heat to get very close to a plant, and are very inefficient to operate.

    MH - Means 'Metal Halide', And is a very good source of the white/blue spectrum of light that is
    ideal for vegetative growth. Many growers use MH during the vegetative phase. MH is
    bright and cost efficient to operate, but not as efficient as HPS lights. Most commonly
    used sizes are 400 watt and 1000 watt. Works best when used in combination with HPS

    Necrosis - Death of parts of the plant, usually refers specifically to the leaves.

    NFT - Means "Nutrient Film Technique". It's a type of hydroponics, where you have the
    water constantly moving through the roots, usually on a timer with nutrients added to the
    water. Thereby allowing the roots to take in what they need, as they need it. It's a good
    way to prevent

    Node - The point on a stem where a leaf is attached or has been attached; a joint.

    NPK - The elemental symbol for nitrogen is N; for phosphorus it's P; for potassium it's K.
    All three of these elements are essential for plant growth and are considered
    macronutrients. N, P, and K are the three principal ingredients in most fertilizers. The
    NPK ratio is shown by three numbers, such as 2-1-1, that reflect the percentage of each.

    Nutes - Nutrients or Fertalizers.

    Nute-Burn - The result of feeding a plant an excess of fertilizer or nutrients.

    Nute-Lock - When the pH is off and it locks the nutrients into the soil, thereby preventing
    the plant from absorbing them.

    Organic Nutrients - Natural, non-synthetic nutrients.

    Peat moss --The partially decomposed remains of mosses harvested commercially from
    the wild. Though difficult to wet initially, peat moss can absorb up to 25 times its own
    weight in water and is therefor valued as a an organic soil amendment. Peat moss is
    acidic --with a pH of about 3 or 4.0-- and should only be used around acid-loving plants or
    to help lower the pH of alkaline soils.

    Perlite -- a unique volcanic mineral which expands from four to twenty times its original
    volume when it is quickly heated to a temperature of approximately 1600-1700 degrees
    F. This expansion is due to the presence of two to six percent combined water in the
    crude perlite rock which causes the perlite to pop in a manner similar to that of popcorn.
    When expanded, each granular, snow-white particle of perlite is sterile with a neutral pH
    and contains many tiny, closed cells or bubbles. The surface of each particle is covered
    with tiny cavities which provide an extremely large surface area. These surfaces hold
    moisture and nutrients and make them available to plant roots. In addition, because of
    the physical shape of each particle, air passages are formed which provide optimum
    aeration and drainage. Because perlite is sterile, it is free of disease, seeds, and insects.
    Perlite has been used for many years throughout the world for soil conditioning and as a
    component of growing mixes with materials such as peat moss or bark. Extensive studies
    have shown that the unique capillary action of perlite makes it a superior growing media
    for hydroponic cultures.

    Among the many uses of perlite today are propagation and seed cultivation, plug
    production and transplants, interiorscape and planter growing, composting,

    dajosh42069 Well-Known Member

    PH -- the measure of soil's acidity or alkalinity, measured on a scale of 1 to 14. Water is
    considered neutral at PH 7. PH levels below 7 are classified as acidic, or "sour". Levels
    above 7 are basic, alkaline or "sweet". Most plants prefer a slightly acidic soil pH of 6.0 to

    Phenotype - The plants characteristics as determined by not genetics, but by enviroment

    Phloem: Nutrient conducting tissue.

    Photoperiod - AKA lighting schedule, it is the number of hours of light and darkness the
    plant is exposed to. Usually expressed as a fraction. Ex: 18/6 = 18 hours of light, and 6
    hours of darkness

    Photosynthesis: Biochemical process in which light energy is absorbed by chlorophyll, and
    is used to fuel the building of sugar molecules.

    Pistil - a hair-like protrusion from the nodes/buds of a female plant, also a precursor to
    the buds themselves. Pistils turn from white to brown as the buds mature.

    Plant Stress - Any unhealthy stimuli the plant receives. Examples: Light-burn,
    overwatering, nute-burn. Stress can cause slow growth, mutations, or death.

    Potash -- Broadly, potash describes any material containing potassium. More specifically,
    though, potash is potassium carbonate derived from wood ashes. The term potash comes
    from the process of extracting lye from wood ashes in iron pots

    PPM - Acronym for Parts Per Million, this term is used most in hydroponics to measure the
    amount of nutrients given to a plant.

    Rock Wool ? Mineral or rock wool has been used extensively in Europe and is recently
    finding applications in the U.S. greenhouse market. Like perlite and vermiculite, it
    originates from a natural mineral (alumino silicates with some calcium and magnesium)
    that is heated to 2,700?F to form fibers that are used to make blocks or cubes as a
    finished product. Blocks or slabs of rock wool are used extensively by hydroponic growers
    of greenhouse vegetables. Rock wool typically has an alkaline pH, is sterile and
    chemically inert.

    Regenerate - OR Re-vegging, refers to the act of putting a plant back into the growth
    cycle after harvesting the flowering buds off of the plant, in order to bud the plant again
    or to take clones off of the plant. (See Vegging)

    RO - Reverse Osmosis, is a form of purifying water usually used in the bottling of waters.

    Root Bound --A condition where a plant or seedling's roots have grown compacted and
    entwined in the pot and has no room to grow. This condition results in stunting the plants
    growth and potential. The solution is a larger pot or transplanting outdoors.

    Ruderalis -- Ruderalis is not a very good choice for flower production, indoors or out.
    Despite maintaining a short stature, growing only one to five feet tall, and maturing
    rather quickly, Ruderalis just doesn't produce the yield or quality one looks for in their
    flowers. A slight light cycle reduction can trigger a sprout with as little as 2 to 3 leaf sets
    to flower. Ruderalis spontaneously initiates flowering a few weeks after sprouting, and
    will not produce decent flowers unless the photoperiod provides around 18 to 19 hours of
    light. Even then, the yield and quality are less than desirable, incomparable to that of the
    Sativa or Indica sub-species.

    Sativa -- Sativa is a hard plant to grow indoors due to high lighting requirements, tall
    stature, and late flowering traits. Sativas come from equatorial regions, thus the
    neccesity for high ammounts of lighting and a warmer tropic-subtropic climate. You can
    identify a Sativa by its long, slender, finger-like leaves. A Sativa will typically produce a
    euphoric, energetic, cerebral high. Despite the Sativa's climatic limitations, they are truly
    a reward to obtain, grow, and smoke. A pure Sativa will take 2 to 4 months to finish

    ScrOG/ SOG -- "Screen Of Green" method. The purpose of ScrOG is to maximize your
    usage of the available space and lighting by training the new growth of a plant into a
    screen or mesh.

    Seed Casing - The integuments of the ovule, which are the ovule's old coverings, harden
    and become the seed's protective coat

    Sensimilla - OR Sensi, In Spanish means 'without seed', having a female plant bud without
    letting a male plant pollenate it, thereby preventing seeds from forming in the buds. This
    increases THC potency and smokable bud weight.

    Sepal -- Sepals are components of the calyx. Located at the base of the flower, these
    modified leaves usually function as protection for the petals while in bud stage.
    Occasionally, sepals will be colored, but they are usually green

    Sexing - The act of determining the gender of a plant through various methods.

    Shwag/Stress/Regs/Bobby Brown - Non-Sensimilla buds that are typicly grown in very
    large outdoor batches, which prevents the care and love that smaller groups of plants can
    get. It has many names, this is only a few of them.

    Stamen --This is the male reproductive organ of a plant, located in the androecium of the
    flower. It has two components: the filament and the anther..

    Stigma: The sticky tip of a pistil.

    Strain - refers to the specific genetics of the plant. Example: White Widow, Northern

    Stomata: Opening in the epidermis of a leaf which permit gas exchange with the air.

    Stretching - When the lights are placed too far from the growing plant and causes it to
    stretch out and grow tall and skinny. Normally this happens in young plants and

    Sun Leaves/Fan leaves - These are the large leaves that grow off of branches, and while
    not rich in THC, they play an important role in photosynthesis.

    Synthetic Nutrients - Concentrated and industrial-made nutrients. They have a longer
    shelf-life than organic nutes, but are known to nute-burn a plant more quickly.

    THC -- a. Tetrahydrocannabinol A compound, C-21 H-30 O-2, obtained from cannabis or
    made synthetically, that is the primary intoxicant in marijuana and hashish.
    b. The main physcoactive ingredient in pot. this is what gets you "high!". it is often(not
    totally accurately) measured by the trichomes(fairy dust) visible on pot.

    Topping - Is a method used separate and top of the plant, and make it grow into 2, or even 4 very large main cola's (See Colas)
    Traditionally, topping your plant causes two shoots to grow back in place of the one
    pruned off, thus increasing the number of top/main buds

    Transplanting Shock -- When transplanting seedlings from one place to another, the roots
    are often disturbed and occasionally the change in climate can cause the plant to slow
    down or appear to stop growing. This is transplant shock. It is really redirecting it's
    energy to re-grow lost roots and to get accustomed to a change in temperature that it
    hadn't experienced before.

    Trichomes - AKA crystals or sugar, they are tiny, mushroom-shaped capitulate glands full
    of THC that form on the flowering buds and bud leaves of cannabis.

    Vascular - Refers to the xylem and phloem tissues, which conduct water and nutrients
    through the plant body.

    Vegetative - OR 'Vegging' Refers to the vegetative stage in the first part of a plants life when it is only growing leaves and stems. This is when you have your lights on 18/6-24/0, or any timing variation where the amount of light exceeds the amount of dark by several hours. This
    phase preceeds flowering and follows sproutling.

    Vermiculite -- is sterile and light in weight (5 to 8 lbs/ft3). The pH of vermiculite will vary
    depending on where it is mined. Most U.S. sources are neutral to slightly alkaline,
    whereas vermiculite from Africa can be quite alkaline (pH = 9). Vermiculite is used
    extensively in the greenhouse industry as a component of mixes or in propagation. It is
    usually sold in four size grades: #1 is the coarsest and #4 the smallest. The finer grades
    are used extensively for seed germination or to topdress seed flats. Expanded vermiculite
    should not be pressed or compacted, especially when wet, as this will destroy the
    desirable physical properties.

    Ventilation - Circulating air in order to provide the plant with fresh air and/or to reduce
    the temperature in the grow area. Air movement also encourages strong stems.

    Yield - The amount of bud harvested, or projected to be harvested, from a finished plant.

    Watering Schedule - term referring to how often and how much water a plant is given,
    usually measured in days and gallons. Ex: 1 gallon every 4 days.

    Watts -- A measure of the amount of electricity flowing through a wire. Watt hours
    measure the amount of watts used in one hour. A kilowatt/hour (KWH) is 1000

    Worm Casting -- (Vermiconversion) or using earthworms to convert waste into soil
    additives, is a biologically active mound containing thousands of bacteria, enzymes, and
    remnants of plant materials and animal manures that were not digested by the
    earthworm. The composting process continues after a worm casting has been deposited.
    In fact, the bacterial population of a cast is much greater than the bacterial population of
    either ingested soil, or the earthworm's gut. An important component of this dark mass is
    humus. (See; Humus)

    WW - Typicly refers to the cannabis strain 'White Widow'.

    Thats all so far, is anyone notices anything missing, please feel free to point it out and i'll edit the post and add it in. Thanx for reading and I hope this answers your questions!!!

    haha!! Some appreciation!! It took me a few hrs to sift through all the posts and add peoples questions and terms...this ALL comes from seeing the same question asked LITERALLY 15 times in 31 pages.
    Before I ask a question, I read as much and search as much for the answer as I can. I dislike asking questions that were answered not a page earlier. As I dislike answering them. If I can take the time to read a couple pages, so can they. ;-)
    If you don't have time to learn some basic terms, and read a few pages of a forum to learn, you don't have time to grow.

    I was a little supprised by your def of phenotype but after looking at it for a minute I guess your right.
    The genotype is the genetic makeup of a cell, an organism, or an individual (i.e. the specific allele makeup of the individual) usually with reference to a specific character under consideration
    genotype + environment + random-variation &#8594; phenotype

    Well....I had considered answering you with a race that takes place on land....but my assumption is that you mean THIS landrace;

    Then you need to tell us/me what your problem is. ;-)
    If you feel the NEED to, PM it to me (PM = Personal Message :-P)

    But if you ask it here, or in another thread designed to answer questions about what to do, such as yours, then you have a better chance of getting multiple answers from more experienced growers then I.

    But by all means, fire away my friend.
