Call it a New Beginning!

Absolutely. Enough Joe Blows on Instagram charge $50-$100 per pack of seeds to be cautious. Sunken Treasure and In House Genetics are the two I value most highly. A friend just tried my Sunken Treasure bud and said she got higher than cloud 9 - it hasn’t been cured longer than 12 hrs and she’s a pretty heavy smoker. I feel that speaks for itself, alongside the ease of the grow.

In house I’ve heard good things.

Mephisto is good for autos
Jordan from the island
Night owl
Ethos
Elev8
DNA genetics

For extracts ide grow bloom seeds co genetics they are a top hash genetics.

Growing flower vs extracts is a different beast and genetics should be treated as such

That’s definitely a big thing I’ll rely on fellow growers here for, recommendations on other banks. Obviously I’ll still be doing ilgm but in case I wanted to branch out, you as well as @Graysin have already mentioned some good candidates.

I’m longing for that high where I’m revisiting smoking in school :rofl:. I miss the days of being able to just be a dead giveaway to whoever looked at me because I was on cloud 9! I’ve gotten a good buzz off of what I’ve grown so far, same as I would from the bud I used to buy from whoever. Definitely nothing like the first few times though!

I never thought about different strains if extracts is the goal. I was looking at a press but then I’ve seen people on here gets machines they use everclear or something similar for. I haven’t had a dab in way too long now that I think about it.

Vaping flower is the best experience

Dabs are nice but your tolerance will shoot through the roof and the addiction becomes much stronger… All in all I think extracts are a slippery sloap I’ve seen it first hand alot.

I can’t smoke so I eat edibles and now making gummies is so easy.

I’ve never had too much luck experiencing edibles or gummies. Or I’m just impatient and I end up smoking before they kick in :rofl: I’ve talked to a couple people on here about vaping and I plan on trying it sometime in the very near future. One of the tough choices deciding does the extra cash go towards better equipment to grow or better equipment to enjoy the end results.

I think buying a half decent vape is important because it’s an investment in your health…and as you explained enjoyment.

Do you use all coco or do you go the 70/30 ratio with perlite?

Pure coco for me.

Coco and vermeculite here. close to 70/30 It looks like all 3 ways do good though

@Graysin @Not2SureYet this may be the time I try all three to see what one works the best for me in my environment. What better time as well to try my hand at cloning so I have a level playing field. The canna coco isn’t buffered correct?

Canna Coco should be washed and buffered. Mine was, anyhow.

When it comes to watering, when would you start adding Jack’s to the equation since it’s buffered? I’ve seen from many people feed with jacks and water to runoff everytime, but wasn’t sure if that applied to the early stages of the plant as well as if they were using buffered coco.

I use Jacks every watering with my canna coco. The calcium and magnesium in the Jack’s is good to prevent the coco from leeching nutes from your ladies.

Should I still water to runoff from the beginning? I’ve read not to let your coco dry out but at the same time I don’t want to drown the plant in the early stages of life. I’ll be starting my first round with coco here soon in 3 gallon fabrics with autos. My first two grows I was doing six autos with ocean forest in half of the veg tent (10×5) but I think I’m going to bump it down to four. A little more manageable and I’m hopeful the growth in the coco will accommodate the two less plants.

Yes - I have a little plastic kids’ cup that maybe holds 6 ounces of water. I will feed my solo cup gals 2-3 ounces per once a day or sometimes (bad me) every other day. A good practice is to cut holes in the bottom of the cup, then put it inside another intact cup. You can empty the water into the coco, allow it to soak in for about 15-30 seconds (to ensure the medium is totally saturated), then lift the cup out and let the excess drain into the second solo cup. You can then either reuse or dump the runoff, depending on preference. I tend to reuse the water as long as I have a gallon or so nearby to dilute the runoff in.

Edit to say a couple things - coco is essentially easy mode hydroponics. It means you’ll see much more explosive growth than you saw in soil, as long as you really do give them water every day about 24 hrs between waterings.

Consequently, you can use fewer plants and a similar veg time to achieve the same result as you did with 6 plants in soil.
