It’s a story, Dude. I’m just sayin, don’t it always seem to go like that, where people who don’t know a flippin thing got all kinds of bad advice about how to set and forget plants in the woods. It’s not easy growing and these batches wanna say how easy and good at it they are, like ya can’t have a single fricken thing that’s yours. Got me singing Baby Bobby, “It’s MY prerogative. I can do what I wanna do…” Plus what kind of freeloading show-up complains about the quality of free weed?!
I don’t even ask for advice from anyone but on this forum. I don’t trust YouTubers or anyone else who is probably toting an unspoken sponsorship for some bunk or mediocre flavor-of-the-month nutrient or gimmick product line. I have never received truly bad advice here. I have gotten advice that was bad for me, but not truly bad (I.e. I don’t grow organics or in soil, it just ain’t for me, so consequently all advice pertaining to that style of growing didn’t fit my needs). That’s what makes this place so valuable. It may not be right for you, but it’s rarely a legitimately bad suggestion.
Coffee almost went out my nose when reading that convo!
@Graysin knows the story of when I bought some equipment off Craigslist. I went to pick it up and the first thing the fine gentleman said was “I thought you’d be a dude”. He then proceeded to explain everything about how to grow as I hauled 10 boxes of stuff from his mother’s basement!
He had all those sick slaps from breeders and light companies, though, bro. He absolutely knew what he was about, son, he was a pro fo sho. Generous of him to impart his grow wisdom upon you a humble lady grower
Hey, what’s the craziest thing you’ve heard an expert say to your face about growing?
Story time, I decided that I’d make a plumber’s or turbine joint out of a burger skewer I pocketed from dinner. It ain’t stealing if it’s trash, but I was sneaky stealthy about task pickin’. I got home and put that sucker in my king crutch and rolled up a shortie as tightly as I could, really mashed it down in there. It looked like a lil bottle rocket and I was so ready for takeoff!
The stick removal yielded a defined hole right in the center. It’s nice when things go as planned. Such a good day for me. I put it between my lips, lit the lighter, and took a big inhale. Y’all know I burned tf outa my lips, for real. Real funny now, but not so funny when I did it. The sad part is, it was a solo sesh, so nobody would know it if I didn’t blast it myself. Learn from my mistakes. Stoner safety 101: don’t inhale the flame!
