    Howdy folks! I am a life long cannabis aficionado and have been growing for over 40 years. Back in the 70s there was mostly brick Mexican, usually completely seeded and nasty! My Uncle was getting amazing bud around that time...ahhh Columbian, both the red and gold and it was unlike anything back then. We had plenty of local grown "domestic" but always was cheap and poor quality, so I took seeds from the Columbian and grew them in the corn....it turned out better than expected and my friends loved it...thus began my life long love of growing herb! Thank you Ed and Mel, the Growers guide to Marijuana was my bible and l learned SO much from reading it. Fast forward 40 years and I can hardly keep up with all the new techniques and gear but still want to learn it all and I believe rollitup is a great forum to further my growing knowledge. I am blown away by all the great new strains available these days and love to test and phenohunt. Strains that are now pushing 30%? Damn I'm in!!!

    New Guy here. Actually, old guy here. Haven't grown since the 1970's. I stopped when people around me started having legal issues. I saw my first marijuana plant in my buddy Jimbo's window sometime in 1968. I have smoked so much ditch weed over the decades that I still fart Paraquat. Legal marijuana at $400 an oz. is beyond my grasp. Besides that it pisses me off. You know the drill, $8 five-finger bags, walked 10 miles to school every day(uphill both ways). My grow expertise, if it exists at all, is in cactus and succulents. I have an interest in evolutionary biology, and some formal and informal training there. I collect Aloes and Haworthias. I love to live in the desert and I never expect to live anywhere else. I am listening. These kids and their marijuana.

    Hello Roll It Up. What with the new Cali laws today I've decided to get back in the game in a small way. I signed up a few day ago and have been trying to plan my room and strain types.
    I've been a toker since '68 and have a few grows under my belt, but none recently. My last grow was with Stinkbuds Aero/NTF techniques and it worked out pretty well, so I'll modify that and try a SOG this time as I'll be height limited.

    Glad to be back in the game.bongsmilie

Future rounds coming are CitrusFarmer and Humble Pie (DVG) , Cooper Chem and Purple Outlaw (greenpoint seeds).

    Hello, to everyone. My Name is Mayo, pronounced Mah-Yoh like Cinco de Mayo. I like to watch plants grow. I like to talk about cannabis. But my friends eventually get tired of it. hopefully I can quench my thirst for knowledge and discovery. I love to find out exceptions to the rule and learning vicariously.

    Hello. I would like to intruduce my self. I grow little but I mainly work with oil and hash. I read this forum long time ago but don't participate in it and the reason is that I'm not native English and typing is not my favorite, but I read lots of info and want to share specially in hash and oil threads.

    Hello! I've been growing a few years, not quite perfected any particular technique so here to hopefully learn new things and help others. Currently trying to get a good scrog going indoors with some autos despite it not being recommended; turning out good so far at least. Welcome to everyone else new as well~ :)

    Damn i missed this thread first go around, over-anxious i guess to get on board and learn a bunch of stuff from the experts.
    Im a new hobby grower in Nova Scotia Canada and became convinced to give er a go after a good friend fought thru 3 years of cancer. The only pain relief he had was from home-grown oil. I could see the difference this natural medicene made on his life and figered i better get off my arse and get growing.
    I grew 3 White Widows last year as an experiment and was pleasently surprised how well they did. So now I'm just waiting for the snow to go out the woods so i can get digging holes.
    I look forward to reading all the great advice on here !
