Thank you Nicky! I am excited to get next grow going. The ILGM seeds I have, Wedding Cake (bumper crop but someone convinced they were ready when they needed more time to ripen) did really well. I am holding off on Purple Haze until I get a taller tent or grow outside. I gave a couple friends some GSC-X and they grew these massive plants this summer outdoors in Texas, and to a friend in upstate NY and they did well with no attention as they spent most of their summer in Maine and let nature water their garden (must be nice to live with rain rather than the dry southwest desert!) . That to say, all the seeds were fat and plump and brown. We all had 100% germination rate. The grow now is seeds from HGC. All the seeds I got from them were at least half the size of the ILGM, pale and seemed immature. 30% germination rate. They did promptly resend more seeds. But that was a lag in time between the ones that did germinate and the replacement, so tent is staggered now on harvest timing.
I will do a diary. I do have my personal grow diary I keep. I have grown in AutoPots, indoors, two times, but this time think I will do a 7 gal SoftPots, indoors, so I can grow organically.
The CBD aspect intrigues me. Being an endurance athlete I live in a stiff, pain riddled body. It would be nice to feel a bit looser and pain free. Somehow we ended up with a sativa heavy stash so will be great to have some indica here without hitting the overpriced, underwhelming medical dispensary in our little city. Or resorting to the vape oils, not my favorite method to consume.
I really have enjoyed the ILGM site and members. It is the only social media I do other than my athletic Strava app but that is different. Now as I await these and plan the grow, I will start seed shopping for spring! Next item to purchase is a rosin press for all this goodness. I like to make my own topicals and I use wax or shatter.
Hey if ILGM ever needs a ‘test’ gardener look me up!
