Actually, i was hoping you could provide me some details on the G13 strain you carried in 2007. It was a G13xBuddha. Can you provide some information on where it was sourced from? It is much different than the G13 lab and Barneys Farm line(s), or it seems. Thanks for your help. Just trying to track down some genetics that originated from TO420. Much appreciated

Answer: We just got the G13 in! We have a couple packs left. We have ordered more, so there will be more in the coming days!


Comments

We are in sad times, good luck brave soldiers. Mr. Wynne is a leader in abominational sin but not so democratic when it comes to "majority rule"!

 

Answer: Thanks for your support! Glad to know SoCo has helped so many people!


Comments

Can you provide some details on the G13 you previously carried?

Answer: It is the G13 from Barneys Farm, we are also getting G13 from G13 Labs. Week or 2 (today is July 6, 2016)

How old do I have to be to purchase seeds? Do you sell buds? Do I require a license? It is not for recreational use, but I am not prescribed, nor do I have a license. It is risky for me going to a dealer, and risky smoking from a person I barely know.

 

Answer: Yes we have seeds in stock, To purchase bud you must have a valid MMPR or MMAR and follow the instructions on the soco website. As to purchase seeds, there is no license required. Come by Green Leaf Society to take a look at what we have, ask for John.

Do you recognize medical marijuana cards from the US? New Jersey

 

Answer: Unfortunatly at this time we CANNOT accept US MMJ cards, I wish we could!

Unfortunately it seems Soco has returned to a terrible way to do business and the google reviews unlike bullshit Leafly tells the real story..$280 a ounce is greedy, yarmaluke toting disgraceful pricing...SHAME ON SOCO!!


Comments

I was wondering if the barn was still open, and what stock it has for White-Widow feminized? I also want to know the stock for the autos. Thanks again for the great service and friendly advice!

Answer: Hey Kalvin, Check out Green Leaf Society, They have an up to date catalogue in the store, ask for John!

MMPR patient from Toronto here. I'm looking to get a head start if the Allard decision isn't appealed this week. Can anyone help with a source for clones

Answer:


Comments

I have been using baking soda and a touch of dish soap for mildew prob....does this solution leave any white on leaves like mildew looks kinda...???dried baking soda ? or should leaves be clean and clear after using? I have tried cedar vinager/with mother but found you cant keep spraying that too much

Answer: I have had friends who have tried using 3% Milk which i believe is Homo milk, because it is fatty it should help with the break down of the PM. Milk and water and I think soap as well. Do some research online to confirm this. Good Luck!


Comments

Beautiful flower guys, keep up the good work!You guys have come a long way.

 

Answer:  Thanks Wayne, we have been working hard in the trenches getting things finely tuned so our patients can enjoy the best quality meds!

Where can I purchase neem oil?

 

ANSWER: Unfortunately I don't know off hand, but I'm sure if you ask some local growers you'll be able to find some


Comments

Hi Mark, There are about 50 of us waiting to join SoCo Oshawa, we are all ODSP with MJ license.God bless you and your staff. Merry Christmas. Best regards, Wayne one would think with "legalization" access to cannabis would be easier but hell no, cops anywhere outside of major cities are going after small dispensaries....oshawa is no different, thus we are having a hard time with securing a location


Comments

m39 freezland I'm unable to see it in the catalog it is always available ? this is a seasonal product that comes in around march as its really meant for outside planting


Comments

Mark I have 2 AK47 in bloom they are sooo tall, one wont stop growing almost at the end of week 4. what is wrong, do you think I need a new bulb? 600W..light leaks is usually the biggest problem that cause stretching...the smallest hole anywhere will make the plants stretch...if the bulb is older then 10 months it is also a reason .....


Comments

I am hearing so many positive things about SOCO lately, congratulations on all your new locations. Many handicapped people find travel near impossible but with all the new locations everybody will have access to medicine, thanks to Mark and the SOCO team.....that is why we have these locations not everyone can drive downtown Toronto ...or drive..... we are actively looking for Oshawa location ...preferably downtown (cause cheap)


Comments

I want to try growing in winter outdoor with auto flower maybe I Waja start in November 1st week is there any strain which can be grown in cold ....in November 1st is a bit late since frost will or may kill it...the only one i would advice is Rosetta Stone designed for outdoors in Ontario

Does the day count for flowering start from the flip to 12-12? YES I have some NL that are listed as being between 45-50 days from the start of 12/12 bloom. Thanks.


Comments

Looking to purchase seeds to grow indoors for personal use, that do not smell so much (trying not to attract attention from neighbors). What are my options? ....stay away from anything that has Kush genes in it as they will smell strong, on the other hand a sativa dominant is not as strong smelling...note: still smells just less

Hi Mark, I purchased a pack of fem rare earth seeds critical kush. I have 4 going nice so far.. 2 10' Christmas trees and 2 topped 5-6' footers. How long is flowing time for this strain? Is it similar to barneys critical Kush in potency? same as Barneys as they are our genetic copy Thanks, Bogz

Many people are saying positive things about SOCO, congratulations to Mark and his crew opening 2 new locations in the GTA. Mark is a caring guy who has set the "standard" for MJJ dispensaries in Ontario and abroad. i feel like i wrote that when drunk thank You

Is the store on Augusta shut down? Here at 4pm on a Tuesday not a soul around? it moved here but we will soon be opening a cannabis culture shop on Queens Way in Etobicoke.

High in CBD Seeds or Clones : Posted on Face book : George Luker and OMM help a lot of patients... they are looking for a high CBD strain to help more. If you can donate it OR just direct them to where they can buy an appropriate strain to help these patients please contact them!


Comments

is there anywhere that i can get more information on the rare earth auto seeds. i have a few of them and have no info on flowering time. all the strains are bred to be 56 days if you want a "standard" high, 63 days if you want more Indica dominant traits and 49 if you want sativa dominant traits (if any)... in lay terms 9 weeks makes pot sleepier and/or perceptively better high but if its 7 weeks then its a more refreshing uppy high more commonly thought of as sativa trait ..... I do not bread anything that is 10 weeks bloom ..why? just because its a pain to do...

I have read here you say keep HIDs 5 ft above plants that's for when they are small and young, when they get taller you can take light down to 18 inches away ..[can lower in bud]...and each 1000 watt HPS/MH cover about 5 ft in all directions/ so another light every 5 ft etc.....I use 4 lights so ..how come pictures of the big company growers show their HID lights are much higher over plants some look way more then 5 ft and in their big grows it does not look like HID lights are 5 ft apart..maybe 10 ft apart...is there a reason the big licensed growers do this???? Thx different reflectors concentrate light differently ... in their case their reflectors act like a flashlight that you aim down wards which makes the lights more intense and thus has to be farther from the tops

Hello, I recently bought 5x Critical Kush and 10x Great White Shark from you. All of the Critical Kush germinated and sprouted great. The Great White Shark, however, did not fare as well. Out of the 10 seeds, 4 did NOT germinate and 3 of the 6 that did germinate are looking much more scraggly and weak in comparison to the others. When we purchased these seeds, we were told there was a guarantee. How do we go about getting our replacements? if you bought through the store go to the store, if online call the number and they send you a replacement, its based on honor

I was excited to visit your store not too long ago. I purchased 5 seeds for 60 bucks. Only 1 sprouted. You can imagine my disappointment :( apparently you don't seem to answer when one posta things to your store. Plus answering your phone in the store doesn't happen much either :( I looked on your site for guarantees, refunds, some kind of satisfaction and found only. Returns within 5 days. One cannot return seeds. Unless you want them in the soil to prove they didn't sprout. Which I think unlikely you would care for. I am so disappointed in the quality of the seeds I purchased. I had hoped for at least 3 out of 5 to sprout. Unfortunately I am now looking else where for my business. Regards, Wendy....We simply replace seeds if asked, no receipt, no questions asked...no need to ask me just go to store... but its true with the club moving I'm unable to have regular interactions with customers and I fucked this one up, Im sorry.


Comments

Hello I am looking for a strain that has low weed smell so it doesn't smell from my outside garden to inside my house.Can you tell me if you have that strain? thank you... as long as you stay away from any kushes you should be ok but there is no such thing as no smell


Comments

Hi, little simple question for you. I would like to know if you still offer the cross between m39 and Freezeland ? Look like you are ( or you were ? ) the only one who offer this strain. I saw at the top of the page '' Sold Out '' but I don't know if it's for the whole page of only the strain at the top of the page ! If you don't still offer this strain, can you indicate me one that could replace it ? It'll be for a Qc outdoor 45N. I'm looking for a low maintenance strain that finish in Sept. or really early Oct. Thank you for your time, I appreciate.


Comments

Mark- are your purple kush and gods og kush strains occasionally prone to show female in veg? assume they had never been seriously stressed (except topping to increase bushiness) and under ideal growing conditions. would you consider this a "strike" when selecting a potential mother plant? otherwise excellent and healthy looking. promix. 400MH. 10 inch pots.

do you have any knowledge or experience with the Canntrol Vulcann 50 drying machine. there is no need for a machine and no I don't have any experience with it... first 2 days is whatever but then for 5 days keep temperatures at around 20C and at 50% humidity

what is lighting regimen for auto's? I have ak and dutch cheese about a foot high and flowering. I'm assuming 12/12 NO and hps lighting, 1000w. this is my first time with auto's and don't want to mess it up. I must add, I bought them earlier this year and they all took. So, I'm really happy with your product. I mean out of 15 seeds, all popped up. thanks Mark do not follow my guide for auto flowers as they are very different, read this guide first

I have been stopped/caught smoking a J in the city twice now. Each time, they take my name, call it in, then say some shit like 10-60 I guess to see if im wanted or not and then let me go... Now this one guy just caught me about 30 min ago has the laws changed he cut me loose but said next time its gonna be a ticket and promise to appear in court? is this true? Thanks. Nothing has changed in LAW, pot is still a chargeable offense and if they wish you could be arrested, .....the prosecutors in Toronto do not see pot as evil ...so they don't press charges ...so cops don't charge for small amounts .....

To the couple people who use this board to further their petty agendas. If you don't like Mark fine, no one is forcing you to do business with Toronto420.com. I don't care if he did something or not and I have no reason to take anyones side. If you don't like Mark fine….. move on…..but to threaten someone with violence on a public chat room if fairly stupid and illegal. "just a observation" what if you find out your friend of 10 years has gotten worst and is fully in delusional state what then (and no he is NOT smoking pot, when he does he is a "normal" guy)....its not like we have a good mental health care in canada ...I'm not going to erase anything here just so I can have some evidence of his state of mind


Comments

Hi Mark, i am finishing off your Northern lights feminized. I looked at the trichomes and still dont see any ambers after 9 weeks of flowering, most are cloudy and some clear. Should i wait 1 more week before choping? No, I would cut her at week 9 anyways ...I don't think the wait is worthy


Comments

I had grown and due to my own negligence lost a strain offered by THC Labs called Gremlin. It was very potent with a nice heavy stone and very little odour. It is no longer available that I can locate and I have tried several strains since but have never been able to replace it. I'm currently growing Northern Light but again I'm disappointed when I compare it too Gremlin. What would you recommend that is as strong as Gremlin but has very little odour? Great for Beginners! This X-large, crystal covered Indica is especially tough so she can handle a slight over feeding. * Flowering Time: Indoor 8 weeks * Approx Yield: high * Height: medium * THC = 22.0% * CBD = 0.8% Look up Grand Daddy Purple ...I don't have it but want it

Wouldn't it be better to set up this msg board with a real message board program where you can actually moderate posts to weed out the idiots. These Idiots are trolls but they sow a seed of doubt about the professionalism of the seed bank...just and observation.. I care about reality not this BS, T420 isn't as much as a business as a mission or a statement, the making money part is a coincidence but not a requirement

Holy Jeepers! I can honestly say that whoever is calling mark a pedophile does not know him and it is way off bounds to obfuscate reality in such a vile manner, shameful at best! Someone, I think the clown that was renting from me, high jacked my email and sent out malicious rants which got me some angry responses from friends, family and other websites I visited. I would like to ask the host of this website to immediately report any negative feeds from my IP because I am still waiting for my tech to check the system for infection/s. If you people do not like Mark a simple solution is to buy somewhere else, it is your choice, use it! Merry Christmas to Mark and his crew.

Stop whining about the club and Mark he is straight up and his product is 100% straight up never been disappointed

that health canada commercial states 300-400% which is about 3-4 x more potent....which is about right....these commercials are about scaring ppl about them scary drugs and if Justin Trudeau becomes PM all the kids will become crazed drug feinds.


Comments

I wouldn't put any under a 250 watt hps....1000 w is the lowest I would use..now some use 400 ,600 etc,, its all about yield..but 250 is not enough to do anything but harvest a joint per plant...sorry dude I would start with a 400W which is the smallest one I consider useful


Comments

in growing the NYC Diesel , how many can we put under a 250 watt hps lite ? any special attention for this strain ? thx man !! 5 is a nice number but that in essence depends on your growing skills... 10 is the number to start with and you end up with about 5 after deleting some.

I have white flies...looked on line where most said couple teaspoons of veg oil in water and spray..assuming not in bud 1] in bloom never spray as it will leave a aftertaste do you agree @ how long does it take? I sprayed...seems not flies coming off plants..but if you have white fly and you cant see them..blind people like me...you can see them on your HIDs the liitle corpes..so I still some some not as many on bulbs and I clean them every morn to check...will white flies lay eggs on other crap besides plants?? or does it take a whole life cycle to kill off W flies with veg oil and water ..do not want to use pesticides thx white flies lay eggs in moist soil so they start life inside the pot as eggs, they hatch then become the flies you know (I'm assuming you use dirt as medium) .... garden stores sell a yellow strip with glue on it that attracts flies and traps them, this is the most effective method to catch adults..... to prevent babies from hatching my guess is that you probably keep your plants a little too wet too long.... it means that instead of watering plants every 2? days water every 3 or 4 days, your medium is just too wet too long which attracts flies.... learn about Neem oil which you can use to periodically spray the top of the pot and the the plants themselves to prevent bugs.


Comments

Strain I use: DP Think Different This is how Posts should start here so we all know what strain some of the posters are on. ;). ...Clearly Some strains cause tourettes. I got some sweet tooth auto seeds in 2013 from there and they turned out really nice...was my first grow too....do yas have any idea how close this years stock to the ones i got? same methods, same strains, same moms, same genetics...so they should be the same this year as last and before anyone starts bitchin about how much you hate this business I was impressed with the seeds i got there so kindly go fuck yerself :) :-)

Just looking for a seed/plant that will produce high CBD output and low THC. My son has Autism and have herd great things from Dr Bradstreet in the USA using hemp oil to help the Endocannabinoid system, thanks for any help Jerry. these are the strains I know with high CBD and low THC, and none that I have as seeds, 1st -  cannatonic, charlottes web, I have AC/DC but I need time to grow it up bigger and it will sell as a clone only.... there is currently no way that I know where to order CBD rich oil online unless you want try this here

"B"... Why don't you just go on ur way, and leave... This isnt a store review forum... Its for people that need help with their grow & Mark is a good person, i never had any issues with him or any of the staff.. He has been helping the cannabis community for years, ie with soco helping people get the meds they need, what have you done "B"???.... Mark don't waste your breath on this persons nonsense... So "B" just leave this forum in peace... Life's too short to dwell in negativity.

I know one thing...if someone cant germinate seeds..its not the seeds fault...or where the seed came from...or how much they cost...its the simplest thing if you fail..stop trying to grow..its you..not every body can grow...just like not every body understands quantum physics ...


Comments

Hello 420 Quick note bought some seeds from sublime cafe at the end of August. The strains were AK 47 & OG Kush fem, started germinating one week later . Three seeds of each strain to start they tailed in 2 days put in pro mix and they broke dirt in 4 (must have went to deep) two weeks later the 6 are fine so I germinated the last 4 they tailed in 2 days, pro mix etc ... All 10 seeds have broken dirt and look okay, looking forward to finishing these through ... Cheers 420 


Comments

if I am finding no male parts at what point can I stop worrying about hermi seeds...i am doing what you said...keep clones 5 ft away from hid 1000w let grow to light...no spraying water...keep dry..no nuts at clones to small plant or 25%...etc...or do I have to check constantly always till end?/ I would check every few days just to make sure


Comments

some where i heard/read...you have white shark seeds? I do not regular seeds not feminized .. true how much and there is a store for you right ..downtown or something ?


Comments

Don't let one or two haters get the best of you! You've helped to many of us over the years! Keep up the good work. Cheers friend! ty


Comments

you said if there are lots of male gland crap then the plants a total loss...even if one removes every male gland? dont the male hermi glands mostly/only show up on the main stalk.??.or are they every where all the way out to branch tips. etc?? I guess I am wondering if this plant will still fertilize surrounding plants just like a regular male?/..I talked in my last post about ..when you see that thick white hair curling out of the 2 hairs we see as female hairs ...showing its a good female/ and on these I can find no hermi glands,..but another female still a clone etc...has none of those thick white hairs...and I have already found a couple of hermi glands I pinched off IF you see male sex before you see any female sex then this clone may be a total loss...guess I am trying to determine if this is the total loss plant you refer to and need to get it out...b/c it just does not look AS female as the others its a loss..1 plant out of 4 this time...what do you think>? I have just got to figure out how to stop the seeds...makes taste bitter...etc... so I will really watch the height of clones and small plants to HID ..no spray...all the things you said 


Comments

Do you still take money orders? yes Also is blueberry skunk F1 still in stock?yes = - )


Comments

Ok...I have been paying more attention....i noticed with 4 plants of the strain i am talking about..3 seem perfect..in bud for a couple weeks and you know how the 2 hairs get a bright calenx [sp?] growing up the middle ..making it even more obvious a good female..but 1 of them seems off..no bright hair up the middle of the 2 hairs...and a few penis's..i took em off but is this maybe what you mean by a plant that it is too late for?? meaning too late its gone hermi too much...can this plant wreck my others if i miss a penis...?/ better to pull it?? Thanks .....theoretically a single male flower can pollinate the entire garden BUT in practice it usually pollinates just the females around itself so the danger of a single male flower pollinating the entire garden is small but its there ... a female that is odd from the beginning should be removed


Comments

Hi ya! Being a 100% novice firstly, I would like to say all my 5 seeds sprouted and grew then I pretty much screwed them up (drowning, etc)! I'm on my last one now which is looking pretty good but have had it under the lights 12 on and 12 off from the beginning. There are buds everywhere but not very robust. My fault of course I see now it should have been 18 hours under the lights during the vegetative stage. So basically my question to you is, Do I leave this one under the lights 12x12 till these buds grow more robust or have I simply screwed this one up too? Going to want more seeds also, the ones I had were AK47... Would you recommend ones I should buy being the novice that I am? Your thoughts would be much appreciated! And for all you haters, please leave your comments at the door! Purrrfect (=^.^=) there is nothing wrong in continuing the bloom process if you want to but the yield will suck a bit since they are probably smallish.... plants can be bloomed at any height .... if you go back to the source (staff will call me to confirm) and tell them you spoke to me Ill give you 50% off if you decide to kill these and start over (technically I would recommend to continue rather then staring over... at least you can learn the process and if you make another mistake no big deal)

Hi...ok , I am an old guy with typical old guy bad vision..anyway I am checking the double hair thing and I notice a very small growth right next to the left hand hair [ of the double hairs] right on the branch separation...I am thinking this may be the male penis it is a male penis ..if this is true can it be pinched off to stop it from having the male organ to produce seeds?? yes it can and should be removed ...this is easier done when the female plant is large and you have very few male organs, if however ALL you see is male parts everywhere then its a total loss

Hi Mark I purchased some LA conf I can ID by smell only, Emerald Skunk I can ID by looks so may be take a picture of each plant and email them, and White Shark I can ID by smell only clones and will be harvesting soon ( outdoor in pots ). My problem is Identification of each strain as I messed up plants I.D. when transplanting, could someone at the SOCO help me Identify each strain if I bring there or take pictures of Mature plants! ( would be more fun to bring in :) ). Thanks again for your continued support and knowledge. I really enjoyed CONROY! ps- I am a member by all means bring the buds in separate bags, I am not sure if bringing the whole plant would help as its the smell of dried and cured buds that tells me the strain


Comments

I read what you said about a clone producing the male sex organ...I actually watch this ..I always confirm the 2 hair rule....the plants thats seem to seed up ...do have all the double hairs I am not getting the male ball thing...the places they seed up are always not the top colas but the little buds down further on the branch..so I am wondering about your light recommendations but will apply what you say to see if the next round improves..cheers there is such a thing as too much lights... the plants have a similar reaction as over watering or under feeding which is just stressful, more so to young plants then big once


Comments

hey again lol..ok can you tell me what to watch for with my clones..what do I look for to determine if clone may be hermi..?? keeping clone environment at 25-28C and at 50% humidity, no over crowding and not too much light  would help greatly but unfortunately once the clone starts producing the male sex (a bulb hanging down as oppose to a couple of hairs sticking up in between the branches) there is not much you can do....if however the plant starts producing male sex in bloom you could simply cut it off as it develops .... so long as the male flower does not get a chance to develop it wont pollinate the rest of the females  Thanks for all your help by the way.


Comments

when you say below ..best to use nuts every 2-3 waterings yes, when they are young, or in not so perfect environmental conditions, or overcrowded or very young in veg .. feed more and more often when in bloom starting in week 3 or 4 ..do you mean just water no nuts in between? no nutrients if you pH your water or with 10% of nutrients if you do not pH the water or small amount nuts...??etc I do small amount rather then just plain water


Comments

somewhere i learned to keep hids 2 ft above budding budding yes but not young plants, they get stunted when you place them too close too quickly, they have to be adjusted over couple of days  plants/adjust as they grow a bit...have you ever heard this ?


Comments

ok...what if i dont have F1 seeds for this strain b/c i have had it so long?...my clone line might have gotten mixed up years ago and could be a feminized mother!! that is why you may be having a problem with hermaphrodites.....what about that chemical that forces plants male could i use that to make a male from my assumed fem mother then pollinate and make seeds to get a non feminized no, you would get a TRUE feminize strain....99% female but terrible for cloning mother for clones line..?? what would you do? I can adjust to make sure 1000 watt hps are min 4-5 ft above plants[bud] same with 1000 watt mh for vegg...i have T5's for clone prop but will not move clones to hid till 4-5 inch.. and not start nuts till then too... i can make sure humidity is down and knock off spritzing plants all the time so its dryer etc....and i can not feed again till pots get drier...all the things you said can make hermies....but the mum being a fem...if i do all the above ok..how much will the mum being a fem still matter?  IT MATTERS so much that you must watch carefully each and every clone you take just in case it turns hermie and it can be bloody random with clones from feminized moms worst is that mom can turn male while in veg as well ....  thanks eh as a note: growers love selling feminized strains because they are really hard to clone so its hard to "steal" their precious genetics 


Comments

i forgot to ask...when is too early to start introducing nutrients? when they are 4 or 5 inches tall and that's when you move them closer to the 1000W light and my plants are from clone of mother that's ok I clone from a clone from a clone from a clone for a year and after a year sprout a new one...should I do new mother from seed? if you do use F1 seeds, do not use feminized seeds as mothers, they make for terrible mothers, their clones go hermie very badly for many reasons.


Comments

Thanks...I seem to get most seeds in little pop corn buds..some buds are all seed...like they bare outside and fertilized...I am maybe guilty of several offences...hids too close....plants too close...and wet or humid..I will readjust lights to 4 - 5 ft above plants I had kept them 2-3...1000 w...I may also feed too much..too strong AND too often I will try to go back to only feeding after soil goes dry...but have been using the newer advanced nutrients ph perfect line...I know..designer expensive but not having to ph is nice...I might spray bottle too much ..I will do next batch as you instruct see if it fixes ... when clones are rooting NO nutrients should be given, none, and the dome should be removed on the second day of rooting (do not use dome when sprouting seeds at all).... all you need is pH-ed water at around 5.5-6.5 range until you see a well defined leaf (4 or 5 inches tall may be) .... when you place clones or cuttings or seedlings at 6 feet away from a 1000W you get the equivalent of a fluorescent spectrum just right for young plants... when you move them closer to that 1000W that's when you start adding nutrients to the water. ..... do not concentrate so much on "feeding" .... from experience the manufacturer wants you to use their food all the time, DON'T, its best to feed with nutrients every second or third water cycle


Comments

I was trying to post a Q ..I am getting a lot of hermaphrodite seeds so wonder what they hell I am doing wrong..forgotten...being a retard I don't often lose my mind but when I do its epic :-) I dont know maybe you could help me...do promix / advanced nuts/2-1000 w hps...great vent/temps/72F I just cant figure it out so think I need fresh perspective to remind me what I am doing wrong...


Comments

I have been growing a while...but lately I have been seeing a lot of hermaphrodite seeds...I do promix/advanced nuts/2-1000 w HPS good vent/temp..everything seems great...what can you suggest as how I might be stressing them out..have I gotten lax forgotten or/and am doing something stupid/easy to fix mistake? dont know..please help sick old fart... introducing food too early in their life cycle or watering too often may cause this but also keeping the plants too close to a 1000W light, I'd keep it at 4 or 5 feet away (and 6 feet until they are 5 inches).... personally I fuck up when I keep them too close together, overcrowded and wet will definitely cause hermies (from feminized seeds) an males (from non feminized seeds) ..... it could be anything an I learned this lesson this summer when me and another independent grower have had full normal mother plant turn to bloom while vegging which is odd to say the least.... it took a while to point it to a brand of food we both used, a batch that was "bad", once we changed nutrients plants recovered .....

I wasn't refering to Mark Emery in B.C. , I was refering to Mark at Sublime (Toronto420) and even say so in my post.

The douchbag that is pissed off called me with the following story; ....He purchased seeds 2 weeks ago and we have apparently charged him $50 more then what we show in the catalogue... We are running sales fairly often so it may or may not be true I can not tell... if you purchased 2 weeks ago I cant tell if its the sale or the normal price.... WE ARE NOT A FUCKING WALMART WHERE WE MATCH PRICES SO FUCK OFF ..... 2 weeks to notice a fucking mistake which I can NOT verify sounds like A. You are retarded B. You are retarded C. Fuck right off

Wait, what? What Mark Emery has done for the INDUSTRY? I thought we were a community? So what has Mark done? a) Ripped off countless smokers and growers with his bogus seeds and underhand tactics. They did it to me. b) Mark would NEVER, NEVER send you across the road. Him and his staff badmouth Roach-A-Rama, they did it to me. Go to Roach-A-Rama or buy the best genetics from reputable dealers: You wound not know a reputable dealer if it blew smoke up your sorry ass

@ RICK > I have been dealing with Mark and the staff at Sublime for many years. I'm not a newbie, and I can say for 100% that AutoAK47 and AutoJack are very good auto strains, and you could grow them in a window in the dead of winter. I take exception to people like you that put down his efforts and everything he has done for the industry over the last couple decades. Mark would be the first one to point you across the street.

This place is def shadey! Half the seeds they advertise are bogus! Mr.nice for example does not breed autos! I know this because I was looking for info on the strain b4 I purchased it and it was not on the mr.nice site soo I sent them an e-mail to request info on it and the reply I got was they do not breed autos hence not legitimate! Also the dutch cheese auto I purchased that is supposedly from rare earth seeds also does not exist on their site..which there are 2 of under the same name! And guess what?.. they are not even autos! The ak 47 Autos I bought do seem to be autos at least but who knows what they really are?! Its bs! U take our money and watse our time..months in the case of photo grows! And you don't have the courtesy to return emails! Not to mention the girl at the counter new jack sh*t! Save urself the bs and go across the street.. name brand seeds and knowledgeable staff. Just bougt some candy cane auto by crop king! To the sublime guys..please step up your cust service and stop screwing with people. Guy fuck off I do not care really but you are a fucking retard mate

I hear this all too often. Mark Emery has just spent 5 years getting buttfucked in an American prison and he's come up desperate for money, that's why he's ripping people off, I'd bet my money that what he's selling is from before his time. Go to another seed bank, don't put money in this asshole's pocket. Prince of Pot, my ass. The guy is a thief and a douche. This points out the obvious problem that you do not know who you are talking about

These guys had a sale last month so I bought a couple of packs of seeds the greenhouse white widow white rhino mix and none of them germinated. The guy at the counter said that they guarantee their seeds, but when I called to talk about it, Mark said it wasn't his problem and hung up on me. When I called back, he told me to Fuck Off... The guy's a fucking asshole, don't shop here. noooooo that is not what you said asshole... yoiu claimed we overcharged you for seeds you bought 2 weeks ago .... pretty much anybody can get free replacements but not when you are a cunt and a douchbag mate

I'm was over. FromTiff from NC and have been researching strains, these guys don't have many choices but I thought they looked legit. When I went in they had such a bad vibe and were so shitty about every other seed bank that I went across the road and was helped out by this cool girl who was very knowledgeable. I agree, these guys are shady - there's a head shop across the road, go there- it's nicer and cheaper.

I'm over from Sydney, bought 3 packs of seeds and noticed online that the seeds were half the price.

Haven't been on for a couple months and I'm pleased to see your summer selection with very good names, so I have a few questions: it's a $100 for 5 and $50 for 5 like normal right?

Mark - My Jack Herer sprouted in one day. I planted in soil, vegged for 7 days and started flowering. Its now roughly 4 weeks (12/12) Its appears all are females as one shows white hairs, and none appear to be males. BUT have they ever grown in height. They're now 19" high, my cabinet is only 48" not including the lights (CFL's) I don't want to top them but I'm concerned about the space. Is it too late to start LST? This is my first JH grow. BTW, thanks for the venting advice (below). I vented cabinet to outside and now cannot smell at all in room.....wife is happy

Hello , all from crew! Since you are one of the best breeders and sellers of cannabis seeds we allowed to address you with a small request . This year we start with a project that would create the most complete list of varieties that are suitable for outdoor growing in our climate - in Central Europe (specifically the Czech Republic). Our company wants to provide the ever- growing community of Czech production more complete information to know which strains can rely on them to seamlessly grow and provide excellent harvest in our climate, and so we try to under approximately the same conditions with the same care grow from seeds offered all plants that manufacturer recommends to our terms and conditions and for outdoor cultivation way ! Due to the fact that among our community , your business is highly appreciated , so we decided to also include in our " study" . Therefore, we would like to ask whether you are from your extensive portfolio of several varieties did not select the most suitable for growing outdoor climatic conditions of the Czech Republic, and from those kindly provided some of the samples we could plant.(Best samples will be a pair of feminized outdoor seeds and any autoflowering varieties-also for outdoor growing...simply for Czech weather area are best early indicas,very early sativas(only a few strains)and also sure autoflowers,all kind of this plants have best chances to grow to good harvest in our area.-)If you do not mind if we include you in our experiment, so you for sending the samples for you guarantee that you will get the first approval of all materials that we want to publish on your varieties - for example growreports and individual pictures from all periods of cultivation, from sprouting until after the harvest! If you have any questions , we will answer them .(When it's important for you-Midweek Song,Serious Seeds,Emerald Triangle,Shantibaba & Mr.Nice, GreenHouse Seeds & Strain Hunters,Biohazard Seeds,Allstar Genetics,Short Stuff,Seeds Of Life,Eva Seeds and much other breeders and seedbanks are just in!) The results of all rounds "Outdoor Project" will be released gradually at first on a special Web site, and some well-known webgrowers forums and blogs and finals will be on site created a complete summary, including all scores with all growreports with pictures of plants in all stages of growth, along with recommendations for Czech growers that of all tested strains are most suited to our climatic conditions and why! It is the intent of the project to rapidly-expanding number of Czech growers received verified answers questions at a constant, which strains selected for their outdoor growing! With compliments,sincerely yours Marek D. Postal address for sending samples: Czech Guerrilla Growing Marek Dvorak Jakubov No.8 675 44 p.Lesonice Czech Republic P.S.: Finally, I would like to point out that no part of our research "Outdoor project" does not conflict with applicable laws (Such as the "General Convention of Human Rights ... " and others,which our country is a signatory !).Summaries of project should serve only to agrotechnically conclusions-for example, the suitability of different varieties growing in our climate and our typical soil. Just none of our business itself does not infringe not encourage others to violate the law . Since the operation, our supporters , who transgresses the law to distance ourselves ! P.P.S.:And please,sorry for my bad english,i'm learning just a few months,therefore,i can not talk well,so I use the compiler.

Well I screwed up good this time, Had 15 NLxSkunk in the soak phase, got up in the morning and forgot to resoak my plate. Now I have 15 dead seeds and im out $150 because I forgot to water them. I could easily return them, and get them replaced but I wont. This was my fault, sometimes I think people take advantage of Marks replacement policy. Going to have to go with an Auto now, maybe Mark will give me a break. yeah I will just don't tell everyone here

Hi, my plants are about 4-6 inches in height now I've transferred them into a 5 gallon pot. The question is how much am I supposed to feed them? According to the website it's 50% of what the bottle recommends. I have pure blend pro Veg, it reccomends 1 tablespoon per gallon which 15 ml/ 4litre. So do I mix like 7 ml of Veg with 4 litres of water? YES         Or is it 35ml since it's a 5 gallon pot I'm confused. NO

What does the 44 day in your 44 day strains imply? 44 day flowering period? YES Looking for a quick strain, thanks.

A burglar broke into a house one night. He shined his flashlight around, looking for valuables when a voice in the dark said, 'Jesus knows you're here.' He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his flashlight off, and froze. When he heard nothing more, he shook his head and continued. Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard 'Jesus is watching you.' Startled, he shined his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot. 'Did you say that?' he hissed at the parrot. 'Yes', the parrot confessed, then squawked, 'I'm just trying to warn you that he's watching you.' The burglar relaxed. 'Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?' 'Moses,' replied the bird. 'Moses?' the burglar laughed. 'What kind of people would name a bird Moses?' 'The kind of people who would name a Rottweiler Jesus.'

Hello, we have 19 years (next month)old boy who has Autism & ADHD & Turret's (probably side-effect of long time use of the pharma shit drugs he has been on).His conditions has been deteriorating, we went trough lots of "experts", practical help at the end of the day 000. We are at the end of road. His mother (we have 50/50 custody) was ready to take him and LEAVE him in some government office, to get him respite (it's between 3 to 20years of waiting list depending where in Ontario). I ask her to hold the horses and try medical pot after I did some research. It seems to be our last hope. But it HAS to be done right. I never ever used pot in my life, so have 0 experience. I am reading through your great website. Would you have any recommendation to some specialist who deals with Autism and support use of medical pot ? THANKS Martin (in Eastern Toronto suburb) the only doctor i know that openly supports cannabis is found here http://synergyhealthservices.ca/

Mark. For three years I have grown white widow in my closet. Each year my wife complains about the smell. I do have an inline fan with carbon filter (home made), but there is still some smell. It is just vented to the room. Is there a strain that is easy to grow in closet (CFL's) and doesn't smell so bad when blooming. We smoke for recreation only. I've read that Black Domina has little smell??? Thanks the only way to solve the issue is to ventilate to the outside which would create a negative pressure in this room which would get rid of the smell.... what you are doing now is called scrubbing which removes the smell particles but you need to run it at 2x or 3x the normal recommended speed when used as a scrubber and even then there will always be something something in the air.... in addition the carbon filter is only good for 1 year of usage and after that it releases a sour smell and needs to be replaced..... as to the smell of plants.... there is no such thing as a "less smelling" plant, that's just a marketing bs we invented in this industry... properly grown, every plant will smell like proper cannabis, some more, some less, but all clearly smelling like pot. The only way is to screw up the grow process which would then have the effect of less smell but that's not what you want anyways...

What does my doctors note have to say. My doctor is willing to provide me with a letter but I need to know what to ask her to write. There is 2 ways to go about this.... (1st RECOMMENDED) way is to become legally allowed to possess cannabis in Canada, which means the doctor has to sign a normal prescription (like 5 grams a day medical cannabis on her prescription pad) and you mail it to (contact them first) 1 of 12 available Health Canada providers who in turn will send you an ID which then proves you can carry your cannabis... with this ID you can also join SoCo...... The 2nd way is to get her to sign our form and we will call her to confirm your status. If you just fill our form I remind you that we are (not yet) a legal provider.

Lawyers should never ask a Georgia grandma a question if they aren't prepared for the answer. In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know me?' She responded, 'Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you'll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you.' The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?' She again replied, 'Why yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.' The defense attorney nearly died. The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said, 'If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I'll send you both to the electric chair. :- )

I want to start some clones for outdoor, what is the best variety for; yield, quality, ease of care. I can irrigate the plants and the location is very sunny and within 100' of the lake. I think I want to try a couple different varieties 1st... DO NOT get feminized seeds IF you want to make/cut clones ....clones from feminized strains root at 20% ratio of sickly looking babies... clones from regular non feminized so-called F1 strains root at 100% healthy rate .... anything that says KUSH (OG kush, NL x Kush etc) will be a terrible yielder .... just about any other strain will yield better and is overall better outdoors then kush.... kushes are difficult and bitchy plants so leaving them in the outdoors makes for poor results... I like blueberry and summertime myself


Comments

Is it possible to start some Rosetta indoors, say June 1, then transplant it after, say, a month of veg to somewhere outdoors (Southern ON) so call it July 1? Would that work? Thanks! ....yes of course it would work, just remember that bloom outdoors starts around end of June therefore your plants would start blooming process immediately as they will be transplanted outdoors ..... its all good , I'm just saying why not transplant outdoors at the end of May (as dog intended) and this way they will get bigger so yield will be bigger

On Mar 21, 2014 we made history! The MMAR Coalition against Repeal headed by Jason Wilcox and Lawyer John Conroy and supported by thousands of sick patients stopped the federal government in it's tracks. The federal government has never been stopped before causing harm with their draconian laws. We have put a hold on possibly one of the largest corporate takeovers this country has ever seen. Patients can continue to grow their own medicine and we will be back in court to win the next battle to legalize and win the right to grow cannabis in Canada for everyone! To those that did not think we could make it this far look at us go! Now it's time to step it up and make this farmers market for the people! No corporations using subsidies (your tax dollars) to take over small business in this country anymore. Please help us with funding this next court date. Every bit helps. Thank you to everyone that has helped battle. http://www.mmarcoalitionagainstrepeal.com/donate.html

A man escapes from a prison where he’s been locked up for 15 years He breaks into a house and inside, he finds a young couple in bed. He ties him to a chair. While tying the wife to the bed, the convict gets on top of her, kisses her neck, then gets up and goes into the bathroom. While he’s in there, the husband whispers over to his wife, “Listen, this guy is an escaped convict. Look at his clothes! He’s probably spent a lot of time in jail and hasn’t seen a woman in years. I saw how he kissed your neck. If he wants sex, don’t resist, don’t complain. Do whatever he tells you. Satisfy him no matter how much he nauseates you. This guy is obviously very dangerous. If he gets angry, he’ll kill us both. Be strong, honey. I love you!” She responds: “He wasn’t kissing my neck. He was whispering in my ear. He told me that he’s gay, thinks you’re cute, and asked if we had any Petroleum Jelly. I told him it was in the bathroom. Be strong honey. I love you, too.”

Well, I guess that's it. Harper has to go. u kno he is preparing to legalize <30g eh, to fight off Trudeau

Not a grow question, just somewhat curious. Because of the loss of growing rights for thousands of Canadians, are you foreseeing a resistance to the new laws for MMAR? I somewhat know your history from Toronto 420-related news, so I'm inclined to think that your door might be one of the first ones broken down come April 1 if you don't comply with Health Canada / Police State. Are you worried about people being raided and rounded-up? no, and yes.... in GTA or Van no, in the smaller towns? yes .... can we legally win this battle? yes... am I TIRED of fighting this stupid issues, fuck yea .... do I think people in power or the media give a flying fuck. NO

one more time start the school of how to grow marijuana to not do it is throwing away money, charge the student and give them a certificate the patient their weed and me a job I would gladly teach on a larger scale but I do not have the time to do all the PR and Logistics required... here is an idea... you get a classroom, organize a schedule, get students, charge them, book me, and pay me to teach... am I not brilliant?


Comments

if there are legal growers why don't you to the start the school of how to grow marijuana am doing it already  and charge people to learn how to grow ditto and give the weed to the patient who is authorized to grow ditto THEN GIVE THE STUDENT A CERTIFICATE THEN GIVE ME A JOB newworldthinker@yahoo.ca ( that just makes sense to have people grow the weed learn how to grow and pay for courses and to give me a job is, well, fare I guess)

Hi. I am a experienced indoor grower with indica,s but not autoflowers. a guide 1, guide 2 My questions are,1st- what is the best grow medium for autoflowers? same as a regular cannabis plant, like promix BX or HP or whatever your hydro store sells.. 2nd- Are 5 gallon buckets overkill? a bit biggish but not overkill... usually Id go with 3 G for auto flowers And last- I use 2-400 watt H.P.S Lights. Is this ok for veg. stage, it will do if you are on a budget, its really meant for bloom but I veg with them too  or should I get some 6500k cfls if you are going to spend money on anything may be consider a 400 HPS to MH conversion bulb... in the end it may be the same price and 400W HID ballast are better then any CFLs Please let me know, it would be greatly appreciated.

what are the best Feminized seeds for outside growing in Newfoundland? Rosetta Stone was designed to withstand the problems of outdoors ..... but I am saying this assuming that NF season is ending around the end of September... and not earlier

Hi.I asked a ? earlier. It was posted then it got deleted,so I am going to ask again.I have 2-400 watt h.p.s. lights with only 15 sq. ft. of space. Is this enough space for 800 watts? I do have the option of making the space bigger if needed. 6x3 feet space ...sorry if I deleted your comment ..see below I just want the optimal space for 800 watts. Thank you for your time.


Comments

Hi.My ? is, i use 2-400 watt h.p.s. lights with only 15 sq. ft..Is this not enough space or my babies? What would be optimum space for 800 watt? 1 x 400W can handle about 3 x 3 feet space (4 x 4 with a stretch) ....so 800W can do 6 x 3 feet space (or 8 x 4 ) Thank you for your time!


Comments

Hi Mark, Always had great success with Rare Earth (23 of 25 feminized seeds have popped, 22 of 25 grew beautifully (one came out with only one first leaf and never got its shit together)). However, I just started five White Widow girls and only two of the five popped. Used the same method (wet paper towel) as always. If I bring the three unpopped seeds in, will you replace them? Cheers! Ps - yes


Comments

Ozzie , Auto Jack will have you wanting to paint ceilings at 3:00 in the morning. It's a Sativa dominate but behaves just like an Indica. P.S. You really got to get away from Miracle Grow , most growers wouldn't go anywhere near it. it gives a particular taste which is off putting once you know it


Comments

Got A FEW ?'s. 1st- What is your fruitiest indica & THC%? Jack Herer to me is fruity to others it sells like a flower... its a perception thing. 2ND-What is your best strain that has a energetic,social, high & THC%?I am a indoor grower and only have experience growning indica,s, so I know that an energetic high only comes from sativas. I love Jack Herer because its 50/50 indica/sativa, and most patients who are actually sick respond to it like no other.... but a purer sativa would be anything with a Haze in it... G13/Haze.. Super Silver Haze ... or Sishkaberry or Summertime Do you have a strain of sativa that I can force grow indoor? you can force grow ANYTHING indoors or outdoors.... something labled "outdoors" is simply huge (which is the point for outdoors but not really the goal for indoors) but with proper maintenance and trimming and pinching anything can be grown inside, Rosetta Stone is labeled outdoors yet I grow it indoors I've been growing indica's for about 10 years and I really need to grow something with a energetic high,instead of a downer,couchlock,sleepy,high? Please let me know,it would be greatly appreciated.

Hey its me again I was just wondering what to do with my clones if the leaves are drooping they practically look dead and I am worried they may not come back I thought it may be because I didn't give them enough water but I water them daily. do you have any thoughts as to what I should do to attempt to bring my baby clones back? please and thanks Mark. P.S They have not changed colour yet and are still a healthy dark green colour. Mr. Green DO NOT water once a day.. allow it to dry out otherwise you are locking the roots out, which lights? hw far away from it? ....T5 fluorescent lights should be a foot and a half away... T2 2-3 inches away... 400W 5 ft. away

Hi I just received 9 clones of PK from a buddy I have them in the blocks and under a 400 w MH bulb 2 ft above the plants, I was just wondering what kind of nutrients to use go to a hydro store and ask for either a VEG A and B (whatever the brand) or Pure Blend Pro VEG (if u care if for organics) and when to start using them when you transfer to 400W mix 1/4 of what the nutrient recommends for the first time and soak them then wait for it to dry out completely... next time you can go up to 50%, then 75%, then 25% then 75%... never would I feed at 100% of recommended nutrient dosage because you have a 400 and not a 1000W I will be dropping my clones in pots of pro mix next week. Also when should I switch my bulb to a HPS bulb? when you switch to 12 / 12 light cycle i.e. bloom Sorry about all the questions but im a first time grower and i dont wanna mess up 9 plants of some of the best weed iv ever smoked. Thanks in advance. Mr Green. 


Comments

Hi , i am interested in growing some plants , wife and i have smoked for years and are wondering what good strains to get for a good start ,lol . We prefer the more potent types of plants and this would be done indoors , most likely . also , when purchasing seeds i would prefer not through online . do i just come down to the store yes and purchase them . Thank you . Jack Herer is easy enough and the smoke is well rounded and potent... Anything with Kush in the name is also recommended just because of high THC

Hi Mark,I'm growing 5 plants in a cold basement. I've put the pots on wood (should be minimum 2 inches off the floor) to keep them off the cement floor. The max temp is 20c with lights on and 14c with lights off.I have added a small heater for when the lights are off. The plants are 15inches tall and look okay. Do you think the cold will decrease yield and quality? Thank you When it comes to yield the cold will make it seem like you had a bad infestation of mites  ..... they will grow buds way smaller and not develop as well as they could and in general under perform .... the night temps are just barely acceptable but the day at 20C is too low... min 24C and 28C at 40% humidity and 30C at 20% humidity would be my preference

Hi....First time farmer here....can anyone recommend a reliable seed for southwestern Ontario....Thanks Early Girl, Early Skunk or Rosetta Stone are reliable and Southern Ontario has decent October (i.e. not too cold) to finish most of our other strains

How's your stock of NYC Diesel, Sour Diesel, Northern Lights x AK 47, and Somango looking? on the catalogue page I added a direct phone number to the cafe for you to call and check on particular stock inventory .... I don't really want to post this number here as everyone will call for other reasons.

re: outdoor harvest times. I fully agree with weather affecting harvest times. But the issue that gets me most is frost. That will make or break a grow. Mid-Oct would be a nice harvest time, but it can be a gamble. For discussion people can refer to the link in this post. Toronto (south of Bloor) has an avg Fall frost date of Oct 13. North of Bloor that gets bumped down to Oct 8. Where my plants grow north of TO it's Sept 26. Yes, these are rough averages that can conflict with localized variability...but the dates have been used by local farmers for two centuries. And the point is that frost doesn't delay, or cause mould. It kills. Tarps or greenhouses to extend the season would be nice, but that's not realistic with many guerrilla grows. true true 


Comments

Any chance fast pine will ever come back just wondering no but you never know in this business.... Rosetta Stone was meant as the replacement but I can not get it in proper quantities.... Early Girl isn't as early as she makes herself out to be :-) Early Skunk is just so so outside 


Comments

For the 44 day bloom varieties .. do you still veg them for a few weeks and then throw them into 12/12 for the 44 day bloom? Or is it an auto flower NO it is NOT an auto flower, IT IS feminized and 44 days refers to 44 days from the time you trigger 12/12 cycle i.e. bloom that is 44 days from start to finish? 


Comments

I'm going to chime-in for a comment response below. If the Early Skunk mentioned as an 'early-finishing outdoor strain' is the same offered by Sensi, it is in NOT an early-finishing strain. Yes, it might be earlier than Skunk 1, but it still won't be properly finished until late October. It's quite hardy and withstand being nipped by frost, but mine were loosely ready by late Oct (amber-ish trichs). I've done Sensi's Early Girl as well, and it is actually much earlier. And in response to farther below, I prefer very amber trichs. But when the guerilla grow is 150km away, it's definitely hard to keep an eye on them. That's why this year I'm looking to have just two strains that have a lineage of being guaranteed fairly early for this latitude/climate. Auto's are interesting, but too light-sensitive for me. I've had a batch I put out instantly flower on me - even with my nursery lights timed close to daylight. I think I'll try Summertime again, because I know it's early. Will probably report. Here is what I know about the weather in Ontario (which affects the time you harvest and the yield you get) ... summers in Ontario can be either wet (humid) or dry (except last summer which was a cluster fcuk) ... humid periods make rain fall sooner in October and create all kinds of immaturity issues and mold... when its dry there seems to be little issue with anything, most strains do well, no mold, mid October harvest is perfect then.... outdoor crops/weather can be finicky 


Comments

Hey Mark. I used to guerrilla grow outdoors many years ago and now I'm retired and resuming my old interest. I want to grow Sativa mix with indica (I think). I'm trying to produce large quantity, early maturing (September) strong weed. I've heard about crosses with "northern light" and others, but would really like your opinion. I prefer to buy in store rather than online but that may complicate things as stores run out of fresh seeds all the time. What are options I may have? Thanks, Dave Rosetta Stone, Early Girl, Early Skunk from the feminized strains do well outdoors and finish early and yield well... from F1 non-feminized Summertime or Shishkaberry .... The 44 day bloom are not tested outdoors so I cant say .... I want to add that I would never grow just one strain... one strain gets boring quick and also you never know which strain will do better than the other... but its always better to have more then one to smoke


Comments

Ah, thanks for the prompt reply. I believe I have tried "Summertime", but when I bought it was called "Summertime Buddha". same strain but I shorten the name down to size... I breed them so I can name it whatever ... :-) Unfortunately since it was a Guerrilla grow and I was doing several strains, my labels became sun-bleached/missing and I lost track of what was what. But IIRC I did have nice quality, early buds in that grow spot. That being said, I'm not afraid of "Indoor Only" strains - or strains that are prone to mould/ require'tending' (never been a problem for me)...I just want something that is guaranteed ripe before the October frosts. I'm not sure how great a "44 day strain" would be if it ends up finishing in Nov. But perhaps I'll take you up on your choice of Summertime. Or gamble with a few more. Thanks. my understanding was that 44 day strain would bloom quicker outdoors as well .... actually I have never tried a 44 day bloom since I go by amber on trichones which can makes outdoors (without a controlled light cycle) impossible for my purposes ... if you go by the change in hair colour for harvest timing then 44 days should ? would be end September? no ... at that point I would cover them in dark canvas bags for few days to speed up crystals changing to amber...wait a week and harvest before any rain starts

For instance: that Black Domina x Bubblegum, or your Purple and OG Kushes all sound fantastic. I'm just afraid they'd be super-late finishing like the Skunk #1 I grew years ago. So if you have any first-hand or second-hand info on what might be a quality strain that (properly) finishes by late Sept/early Oct that'd be great.


Comments

Hey Mark. I noticed you guys updated your online catologue. Thanks! Quick question: I want two strains for my outdoor grow - I've already chosen Durban Poison as one because it's 100% Sativa. But do you recommend any early-ish finishing hybrids as an all-around quality smoke (and perhaps leaning towards the Indica-side)? Reason for asking is that I don't want to be stuck with a plant with barely any pistils in mid-October. I'm not overly interested in femenized or autos...however, if the strain is highly recommended I'm willing to use fems. We brought the 44 day strains but in order to succeed with them outdoors you probably have to tend to them more often the the D.Poison... Rosetta Stone from feminized is purely for outdoors and should finish early i.e. before end of September ... and I know Summertime (F1) is really easy/nice outdoors if you can wait til early Oct. 


Comments

Hey Mark I've been growing my own for last 3 year or so using your sage advise strictly for my own pleasure and peace of mind. (Anyone just starting out here on the blog using the instructions provided on the site I can vouch for the common sense here in- Marks got it right for small growers- read this shit.) Anyways my set up is small and stealth with one closet for vegging and one for blooming 2 plus 2 plants but it works for me. But now my wife finds herself living with cancer and will be having both cemo and radiation soon so she is going be a lot sicker before she gets better. Any strains you sell Mark good for this? chemo/grape strain I have... but at this point you should read abuot Rick Simpson oil, I have my reservations about claims it makes however its worth a try I’m blooming 2 ak-47 now 7th wk, but I know its quite a stone, probably not suitable for my non-smoking wife? I’ve grown G13 and North Lights from the store too are they more suitable, I’d like to grow hardy plants since I relay on just a few plants at a time. I have a vaporizer for her which I think will help her, any advice for starting a newbie up on this, I’m scared the first wiff off the vaporizer she too stoned to feel the benefits. I don’t want to turn her off, I need to turn her on to this to keep her appetite up to help get through this. start making eatables, cookies or tea, read abut decarboxilation before cooking with cannabis, start her off with insanely low dosage, women are often very very sensitive, the point is not to get "high" per se, but to get the so-called body-buzz. Problem is that peoples tolerance varies A LOT, example. some people can eat a ton of hash and feel nothing and smoke a joint and pass right out, the pint is to start sloooow and wait and see. A bad experience can turn a person off Any advice of this I need to keep this girl going for her kids? Thanks so much Grow questions Mark 

1. Fan leaves and when can I remove them 5th week of bloom, as they die or not at all, should I keep them? once a fan leaf starts yellowing around week 5 or 6 it means the plants does not want it anymore so removing it is ok I have side lights but they still cover quite a bit of bud from light. 

2. Generally what you think on trimming leaves no unless fan leafs in week 5-6 or ... yes if you are removing bottom parts to enhance the top 3/4th in week 1-3 of bloom on plants during bloom period. Is it ok? Trimming would help in my grown tent. if your plants are overgrowing the tent then you must make a painful choice of either trimming branches/leaves or removing an entire plant completely .... in terms of yield over crowding is as bad as mites  

3. Is it true that harvesting top bud closes to light before other parts of plant is good idea because Top of plant bud matures sooner? no, but later bud is sleepier and / or produces different levels of THC/CBD so its just like harvesting any plant later ... is it ok? whatever she is at the end of life so it matters little at that point This would allow a week or day smore light on mid section of plant? 4. Beginning of the 7th wk blooming ak47 x2, they look great, but have not been exposed to said smell of the stuff. Smells like G13 or Northern Light so far so not so bad. Will 2 plants do a big stink in a room and when? yes if you do it right  Thanks Mark

Stephen Harper and a few of his Conservative buddies are taking a stroll when they come upon a little girl carrying a basket with a blanket over it near the Parliament building in Ottawa. Curious, Prime Minister Stephen Harper asks the girl, 'What's in the basket?' She replies, 'New baby kittens,' and she opens the basket to show him. 'How nice,' says Harper. 'What kind are they?' The little girl says, 'Conservatives.' Harper smiles, pats the little girl on the head and continues on. Three weeks later, Harper is taking another stroll, this time with his wife. They see the little girl again with the same basket. Harper says, 'Watch this, Laureen; it's really cute.' They approach the little girl. He greets the little girl and says 'how are the kittens doing, and she says, 'Fine.' Then, smirking, he nudges Layton with his elbow and asks the little girl, 'And can you tell us what kind of kittens they are?' She replies, 'Liberals.' Abashed, Harper says, 'But three weeks ago you said they were Conservatives!' 'I know,' she says. 'But now their eyes are open.'

FEDERAL CLASS ACTION LAUNCHED CHALLENGING HEALTH CANADA’S CHANGES TO THE MEDICAL MARIHUANA LAWS ON BEHALF OF PATIENTS AND CAREGIVERS Class Action Suit alleges that the changes to the Medical Marihuana laws taking away the right to personally produce or have a caregiver do so, prohibiting dwelling house and outdoor production and limiting possession to “dried marihuana” only and other restrictions violate the constitutional rights of patients. VANCOUVER (November 29, 2013) – A proposed national class action suit has been filed in the Federal Court of Canada in Vancouver against the Federal government (Health Canada) seeking various declarations as to the unconstitutionality of the proposed changes to the medical marihuana laws amending the Narcotic Control Regulations, repealing the Medical Marihuana Access Regulations and implementing the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. The representative proposed Class Action was commenced November 29th, 2013 by four representative Plaintiffs on behalf of all persons ordinarily resident in Canada who have been medically approved to use cannabis as medicine whether under the Narcotic Control Regulations, the Medical Marihuana Access Regulations or the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations. The action seeks constitutional declarations that all medically approved patients have the constitutional right to not only produce their medicine for themselves but if they are unable to do so, to have a caregiver do so for them, and to use Cannabis in any of its effective forms and not be limited to just “dried marihuana”. Also that patients or caregivers can continue to produce in a ‘dwelling house’ and outdoors and should not be limited in other proposed respects such as limiting the maximum amount that a patient can possess to 150 grams. The suit alleges that the new Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) are unconstitutional to the extent that they omit the right to continue to personally produce or have a caregiver do so and unreasonably limit the s.7 Charter constitutional rights of medically approved patients in the Narcotic Control Regulations, as in the Medical Marihuana Access Regulations and the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations by limiting possession, sale and provision to “dried marihuana” only, contrary to the decision of the British Columbia Supreme Court in R. v. Smith 2012 BCSC 544 (on appeal to the BCCA) as well as other aspects. Orders in the nature of interim and permanent exemption/injunctions will be sought to exempt individuals medically approved from the change in the law pending the hearing of this matter and thereafter or alternatively restraining and preserving the provisions of the MMAR until such time as the government makes appropriate amendments to ensure the full ambit and scope of the patient’s constitutional right is protected without any unreasonable, inconsistent and unnecessary restrictions. Health Canada as of April 2013 authorized the production of 188,189 kilograms of cannabis marihuana to be produced under the MMAR under the various licences during 2012. As of November 1st there were only three licenced producers approved to produce and supply patients with cannabis marihuana. The MMPR repeals the MMAR personal production and designated grower provisions effective March 31st, 2014, a mere 4 months from now. It is anticipated that these licenced producers and any others that come into existence between now and March 31st, 2014 will not be able to produce a sufficient quantity to ensure that all of the approved patients have a safe continuous access and supply as of March 31st, 2014. According to Health Canada as of July 15th, 2013, there were 35,445 persons authorized to possess cannabis for medical purposes in Canada broken down into 24,185 holding personal production licences, 4,251 holding designated grower licences and 6,027 accessing Health Canada’s supply through the government contractor Prairie Plant Systems. While 27,000 of the licences are issued to produce entirely indoors, 3,000 of them were issued to produce entirely outdoors and 2,670 to produce indoors in the winter and outdoors in the summer. Producing outdoors is a substantial cost saver in terms of electricity and some 60-70% of the permit holders are indicated to be on disability pensions. The Plaintiffs say they will not be able to afford the estimated price of the medicine from the licenced producers created under the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations as the sole producers. Most of those with personal production licences produce in their dwelling house as they cannot afford to rent space elsewhere, and they save substantially on electricity costs by partial outdoor production. Consequently the Class seeks to maintain its ability of each of its members to produce for themselves or have a caregiver to produce for them or, if they can afford it, to purchase their medicine from a licenced producer and that to force patients to access their medicine at a price they cannot afford from only licenced producers does not constitute a “viable constitutional exemption” that ensures a reasonable safe and continuous supply of medicine for the patients. The Class also seeks to ensure access to juicing and other extracts by patients across the country and to maintain their ability to grow in a ‘dwelling house’ as well as outdoors, and to not be otherwise unreasonably limited in terms of possession. All persons who have been medically approved in Canada for the possession and use of cannabis whether under the Narcotic Control Regulations, the Marihuana Medical Access Regulations as a patient and producer or more recently under the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations are asked to go to www.johnconroy.com and click on the “MMAR” button and register by the completion of a victim impact statement so that we can assess whether or not to introduce your case and evidence into the action or email reception@johnconroy.com to be added to the list of members of the Class wishing to participate in this Class Action.

Hey Mark. How are you legally able to sell seeds? Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled you are, but in looking at the definition of schedule II drugs (cannabis) I note that seeds seem to be included expect "(8) Non-viable Cannabis seed". How are you, and others, able to sell (thankfully) viable seeds? Cheers!

Hi Mark, I have a current license to produce and posess expires Jan1. Can I still renew all of them and if so what forms do i send, quite confused about the new rules. thxs for your help


Comments

I hear the feds talking about the lack of safety and security of grows as their main reason for FUR (f*cking us royally). I would like to know how many licensed grows have gone up in flames due directly with abuse of the fire regulations and how many have been robbed by someone else that doesn't hide behind a BADge. I realize that this is more political than practical, but I certainly cannot find these numbers that the government likes to banter on their sites. Could you at least direct me to where I could find this out? SmokingMinds would like to know!!

Comments

I bought some Blueberry autoflower seeds from you guys and planted one. It seems healthy enough, but it won't flower. I've even tried going from 20/4 down to 18/6, and now, out of desperation, 12/12. It's in the same setup I've used for years with Northern Lights. It's been 50 days and won't bud. Should I just be patient?


Comments

Just got back from harvesting my Rosetta Stone plants. They probably could've gone another week perhaps, because most of the trichs were still clear...and it's a warm enough October to leave them out. But damn, they look good. I could tell from the lighter green leaves during vegging and flowering that they could've used some more nutes, but these babies pulled through decently. Sticky, resiny buds. A nice fruity aroma. Can't wait to see how well they dry and what smell they develop. I'll add this to my list of plants to try again because it's affordable, quality, mold-resistant, and finished before frost. And with the M39 seeds I've got, I'll probably try those again too. Had I not left them to get seeded, they probably would've finished a week or two ago. Still on the hunt for an earlier finishing stain. Possibly Durban, from what I remember hearing years ago.


Comments

Have to agree , that Jack Herer is the finest, strain I've ever grown. it's very understandable why it has won so many awards and has developed a great reputation. It's not the most powerful weed I've ever smoked (that would be Train Wreck). It's easy on the lungs, doesn't couch lock you, you feel alert and ready to tackle the world. Then the munchies kick in. In my book that's a 10.


Comments

Mark, what's the best outdoor seed you have at the cafe..? rosetta stone is made for outdoors and its a great yield and stress free plant I did skunk this year, good yield, quality is questionable. I had to harvest early. I'm looking for medium yield, and a high quality. my fav is Jack Herer ... meh yield but great smoke .. its a sativa that behaves like an indica


Comments

Will new law in 2014 affect me buying seeds or any retailer selling them? no, we are not going away and neither are other seed banks


Comments

Sorry, I didn't really mean the genetics or seeds "sucked" i suppose I take stuff personally (sometimes) sorry...just that I fuct them up early on by allowing them to get seeded, and didn't take as much care as I should've. In more detail, the spot was perfect for outdoor (almost full sun, not a dry zone), but because it was a former swamp it was probably a bit high in ph. I can't recall if I buffered with lime, and the Pro-Mix I used wasn't the variety that came pre-buffered. The nutrients were almost entirely the free compost provided by the City of Toronto (yard waste, not entirely decomposed). And I used a flowering nutrient (I can't recall the name of, but wasn't a large name brand) that placed down as a top-dressing. Because of the light-green underfed colouration of the leaves, I can tell small amount of Nitrogen wasn't reaching them...and more than likely this wasn't a good brand for top-dressing. It may not even been for top-dressing, but a kind you mix in. These reasons may be why they were skimpier than I would've hoped for seeded bud. Regardless, the whole "suck" thing was due to the plants being seeded by my own doing...and that it was a somewhat sloppy guerrilla grow to begin with. The Rosetta Stone OTH are very healthy and are all female. Same nutes + some liquid nutes, but in buffered Pro-mix in a pot (not former swamp ground like the M39). My problem with them is that they were much less farther along than I'd have hoped for. I think you already know that its hard to predict yield or fix problems with so many complicated factors like in your case .... delays come from stress and you had a fair bit of stress factors... sorry about the suck thing

Hello thanks for getting back. I left the post about jack herer ak47 late bloom. Oct 1 just to fill you in there in the country down the back trail over the creek 5 miles up the gaot trail. No residual light any where. Was just there today and its filling in real fast its done its stretch. Sorry i think i put wrong flower start date its started around sept 5th that is a bit late are you sure its not like July????  or so. My water is ph,d every time i water the plants clearly are not nut locked from ph. these are perfect colour real healthy plants.its not my first roadeo so to speak. Looks like it withstands frost well. I think it may finish and last till nov1. Lets hope so i put my heart and soul into it. I cracked the seeds in nov of last year alot of work. Ready to start next years now. Went back to ordering online again. Thanks.

Hello, I was just wondering what the odds are of getting a male plant in a pack?I purchased 3 five packs of seeds off you in February which were Rosetta Stone is feminized ,Ak47 is feminized and Summertime Bhudda this strain is NON-feminized .I had no issues with the Ak47 and Rosetta but my 5 pack of Bhudda had only 4 seeds and 1 was male(which I put outdoors before I knew it was male and it "infected" the whole crop.


Comments

forgot to tell you plants were already 8-10 inches tall and very well rooted when put out may 28th there is a lot of things that could go wrong to extend the cycle and the biggest one is the weather.... cloudy weather would extend the cycle but it would also stretch the plants (so would bad pH) so if they are stretching blame the weather.... if not I don't know


Comments

Got jack herer fem seeds from you planted may 28th just started to bud sept 18th plants are 7 feet tall real healthy looks like 5-6 weeks before finished from sept 29th. Just wondering if this is normal to start budding so late and what is normal harvest time in Toronto for this strain?? Also got ak47. plants are beautiful but only grew 4 feet tall in same local same fert feeding looks to be another 3weeks from finishing is there time for these to finish its already october1. All other crops i harvested in the past were always done by oct 15th latest. Some even by sept 20th. Should i be doing jack herer indoor only? I,v grown in rockwool indoors many times before is this strain better indoor?and what strain you carry that will be most potent earlist strain for next year and are they in stock now&howmuch cost thanks for your time IF there is any outdoor light like street lights and or car lights and or whatever lights the cycle will extend for sure.... Jack should be done by first week of October so I have no easy answer why.... the only reason I would get a dedicated outdoor plant is because they simply get bigger and outdoors you can have bigger plants then plants indoors .... the rest should be the same..... early in the year I get dedicated outdoor strains 


Comments

what is the best home remedy (read the part about milk) to rid my outdoor plants of powder mildew. is it safe to smoke the buds if mildew is present. nooo because its mildew and yes... fully dried the cannabis should be safe, cured in a dry environment the mildew will die off since it has no source of food but I would smoke it myself and not give it to anyone else .. you know just in case

A stoner walks into an appliance store and asks the owner, “How much for that TV set in the window?” The owner looks at the TV set, then looks at the stoner, and says, “I don’t sell stuff to potheads.” So the stoner tells the owner that he’ll quit toking and will come back the next week to buy the TV. A week later, the stoner comes back and says, “I quit smoking pot. Now, how much for that TV set in the window?” And the owner says, “I told you I don’t sell to potheads!” So the stoner leaves again. He comes back a week later and says, “How much for that TV?” The owner says, “I’m not going to tell you again, I don’t sell to potheads!!!” The stoner looks back at the owner and says, “How can you tell I’m a pothead?” The owner looks back and says, “Because that’s a microwave.”

While harvesting my M39s last night, I stumbled onto your grow (16 plants in a straight line ). Just letting you know "there ready". In the old days I would have taken them but I have enough for myself and thats all I care about. We were literally 100 yards away from each other. 407-Brock go get them before someone else does.


Comments

If what you picked up from sublime is the Northern Light X Skunk, your fine they are not auto fem or auto flower but if do them outdoors your going to have to watch for males.


Comments

@phly - ah, got it. These shouldn't be auto...never grown auto before and don't intent to. Cheers!


Comments

Northern lights is at the roots of almost every strain grown today. Almost every seed out there has a root back to NL. Any auto you buy is crossed with C.Ruderalis thats what makes them auto-flower.


Comments

Perhaps I'll try Autos again. Maybe some of the strains you mentioned - e.g. AK47. And perhaps the Guerrilla Gold strains, which are very good. Regarding the police issue...many growers, moreso outdoor, consider all the variables of getting caught while growing, harvesting, etc; without actually thinking of one of the easiest ways - getting caught producing clones, sexing plants, starting seeds in their home/apartment. Usually it's a rental that people can easily get caught in, because in any emergency the landlord can come right in. If you're not home, you're fuct. If you have more than six, or dozens like when making clones for outdoors, or doing SOG, or sexing...you're fuct. I used to be clone-only. That's the ultimate way of growing outdoors I find. All female, all hardy and well-rooted, so no worries about birds or animals messing with them. This is another reason I don't like Autos...because it seems you have to put them out as small seedlings.


Comments

@phly - you'd mentioned that the NL is "super easy to grow because of its ruderalis background." Ruderalis? I know what it is but never heard of it in NL before. What's up with that? Ruderalis is a eastern european strain of cannabis that (is low in THC and) has a distinction of flowering by itself (so called auto)


Comments

I'm very pro Auto, super easy, all females, super fast. The only downside is there yield. Yes you need to grow more of them but you never put more then 5 in one place or harvest more then 5 in 1 day. You need to have deniability when you get caught. What I like about autos is they bud up really well I'd rather have a two foot plant thats all bud and yeilds an ounce then a 7 foot monster that doesn't quite finish and im left a bunch of leaves and loose airy buds. You seem to know what your doing, when everything goes wrong like with your M39's theres always the oil option. Nothing Iso99.9 or MH cant fix.


Comments

@Phly. I might do autos, but I've had bad luck with them in the past. They are VERY light sensitive I've found. There's some great strains sold on UnleashDaGreen, many crosses of something called Guerrilla Gold. Very potent, very early. But I've had some flower the moment I put them outside, even after trying to match my indoor light cycle to outdoors. But smaller plants mean more of them...and more of them means Mandatory Minimum if caught. Although I did accidentally create a very good strain of my own, which I can only presume was a cross between Great White Shark and Guerrilla Gold (#3?). It finished early, was borderline auto, and was top-notch. I lost all the seeds and mothers (from the cops...long story). That's actually why I had to rely on seedbank seeds this season...that didn't work out so well for me.


Comments

I've never liked the 24-0 thing, that's fine for clones under fluorescents but after that its very stressing. In veg I've found no difference between 18-6 and 24-0 same here. Let me keep you in an environment that's 24-0 and see if you don't get stressed. I'm no expert but I suspect that sleep period is critical for all living organisms. You know if you keep to the basics this is really very easy, there a weed and don't need much. Its when people try to get fancy and try to grow beyond there means all the crap happens. Outdoors with the right strain is easy, plus you have deniability, wasn't mine I found it kinda thing. Indoors ,,, your toast.


Comments

Hi Mark. It has been a while since i have been on here.Vegging on a 24 hour light/no darkness. Whats your opinion on moving plants to sunlight in the daytime summer( high uva uvb)and back to fluorescents when sun goes down? Will this shock probably not or stunt the plant? I can not see how I had feminised seeds that switched over to males. no sign of female other than grew bushy and lots a tops.but when flowered had a claw, ball n stick, whatever you want to call it. But not one hair. Could moving in and out to sun then artificial light be the cause? Or old feminised seeds could that be the problem? stress does cause fem seeds to turn to males BUT usually we are talking about SOME male ball sacks and not the whole plant turning male outright.... I suspect there is something else going on here.... simply moving them from one spot to another should not be stressful enough to do that (possible overall yes but not very likely) ..... tell me more about the medium, light, nutrients you use, what seeds, my seeds?


Comments

Al switch to Autos ,there fast , you can pull off two crops per season outdoors. Sure there small, some even only 18" high but there tight,dense, and can be as much as an ounce per plant, not a lot of leaves just one big donkey dick.The other advantage is they don't stand out like Christmas trees.Start your first ones outdoors May 15th, they'll finish by August 15th, Start your second round July 1st, they'll finish Oct 15th. I grow only for myself and this system works very well. Sublime has two great ones right now. AK47 autofem/autoflower and AUTOJACK a super strain thats crossed with lowryder, Great Medicine. I agree but I want to warn everyone that AUTO seeds are NOT easier they are just different.... in fact I'm no big fan of them and beginners should stick with feminized


Comments

K, so the M39s I was talking about WERE seeded. Sucks. Lesson: if it looks like a male, it probably is...when guerrilla growing, yank it if you have the chance. Regardless, the M39s did not seem good anyways. I've had seeded bud before, but these were very skimpy and airy, poor smell, and very little trichs. Obv it's not an "outdoor" strain, and yes, they weren't ready yet...but it wouldn't have made a difference considering they were clearly shite. And there's one odd phenotype that hasn't even started flowering at all. Second point: what I was told at Sublime was the earliest strain (Rosetta Stone) is just some small clumps of white hairs...and it's mid-Sept! This is not an early strain by any means. I'm hoping it'll be quality when/if it finishes, because that's all I've got now. and the weather and the medium and the nutrients and your skills are all irrelevant here... its all the seeds .... yes the seeds suck .... it could not possibly be anything else at all.... you can complain all you want but it does not change the fact that this forum is for help... as in ASK ME A QUESTION ..... if all you want to tell me is that I SUCK and MY SEEDS SUCK.... all I got as a response is .. NO YOU SUCK ..... so there you ... you suck, I suck, seeds suck ... its one giant suck fest


Comments

Are the variety pack seeds seeds from the list of strains you have or possibly any other types? they are all our seeds, just mixed up


Comments

Oh okay thanks for the feedback, hoping to see some new strains before next year but if not keep up the good work :)


Comments

Let's say if someone bred a lot of seeds, would you buy them or do you only buy from licensed people? It depends on like so many factors... I prefer to know you .. know the process or the history of strains, you really have to know .. everything.... seldom people pass the so called smell test.... and if you do know a lot .. lets say chances are I would become your business partner... those are low odds ..... also there is a business license for what I do but no health Canada license to grow seeds

Good to see you Mark, most of us did the best we could without you, but having you back is a true blessing. I pray to the lord Carl Sagan our father up high in heaven :-)

A couple of RCMP officers stopped at Sandy Bay First Nation and talked to an old Indian standing on the road. He told the old Indian, "I need to inspect this l...and for illegally grown drugs." The elder reluctantly said, "okay, but don't go into that field over there...", as he pointed with his lips to the location. The RCMP officer verbally exploded & said, "look mister, I have the authority of the federal government with me!" Reaching into his rear back pocket, the arrogant officer removed his badge & proudly displayed it to the old Indian. "See this fucking badge?! This badge means I can go wherever I want, whenever I want................on any land! No questions asked, no answers given! Do you understand old man?" The elder nodded kindly, apologized & went about his business. Moments later he heard loud - fearful screams; he looked up & saw the RCMP officer running for his life, being chased by a Bull Bison. With every step the Bull Bison was gaining ground on the officer & it was likely that he'd sure enough get gored before he reached safety. The officer was clearly terrified. The old Indian threw down his tools & ran as fast as he could to the fence & yelled at the top of his lungs......"YOU’RE BADGE! SHOW HIM YOU’RE FUCKING BADGE! lol

Hello Everyone. I am sorry I have ignored this page for too long but it took almost 7 months to organize a co-operative where MMAR patients can obtain their medicine at a substantial discount. I am back now and ready to answer your questions.

Comments

I think you are saying 8 weeks from seed to bud. Thats not going to happen unless your growing Autos. It works like this. Indoors > 8 weeks from the time you turn the lights back to 12 hours ON and 12 hours OFF Outdoors > 8 weeks from the time they start to show sex.


Comments

If your talking about 420's Afghani Gold I've grown it before and it actually finished early. There are so many variables indoors/or out, lighting, what and when you feed them, water them , the medium your growing them in etc. The list goes on and on. Eight weeks is just a guideline. If you take them and plant them in a pine forest nothings going to happen. To blame the quality of the seeds is just wrong. Knowledge is everything.


Comments

The Afgani strain I am growing is advertised to finish flowering in eight weeks. My question is why do they say this. It is ridiculous. It has been over nine weeks. They still are not ripe. Any strain can be harvested at eight weeks. They will simply be incredibly immature flowers. So why the big fat lie? Why not be honest a say eight weeks at the earliest, but nine or ten if you want fully mature flowers. I have never ever, ever seen a strain that is truly finished in eight weeks. I ask you I'm I right or not? 8 weeks from the time you turn the lights back to 12 hours ON and 12 hours OFF this is explained in various parts of this website


Comments

2 questions: Is there a limit to how many seeds you can buy? NO Will you have more varieties of seeds for next year? Yes but its an issue of sourcing a proper grower and there is a lot of bad growers out there


Comments

Rare Earths NL5 is backcrossed with Skunk, which should make it an 80/20 Indica dominate. Thats exactally what I'm going to do outdoors next season as I already have my beans. All I need now is a location, as I get older it gets harder to get back there. By back there I mean the back road off the backroad down the goat trail, across the creek, and up the hill, to the clearing. Finding a magical spot is the hardest part of this game. I've had great success with rare earth and feel confident you'll be happy with your purchase.


Comments

bought og kush from you 3 or 4 months ago,ive clipped the tops to make clones they have been flowering since july 10, couple of weeks ago during heat wave all the top branches started breaking off, I was able to tie up and save most, there 6' tall and I wheel them in and out the garage into the back yard most days, can I prevent the weight of the buds from breaking the branches off? also I had a spider mite problem , I applied end all 2 miticide two days ago seems to have solved the problem .by the way you said I d be thanking you , when I bought it ....... so thanks bud


Comments

@ phly: I picked up 5 NL from the cafe today. Was told it was 80% Indica. I hope so. Was also told it was NL#5 and am skeptical. I didn't realize Rare Earth was their own brand.


Comments

Patience my friends, the magic month of September is almost here. In the past all the magic and the doubling in weight happens in a very short period. Even if your not seeing flowers yet your still fine. Sept15th - October 7th. Caution thats also hunting season and the time of year your most likely to lose them due to any dozen of reasons. Over the years I've lost my babys to Hunters,Hikers,guys running around on ATV's just looking for them, ants, mice deer,flooding,mold,and maybe aliens. Hang on guys here we go bring on September !!!


Comments

Gotta watch it with those M39's they grow fast and they grow large. I wouldnt sweat a few seeds here and there. Sell them on Kijijji. You'll be reimbursed your original investment and have a shitload of some real nice weed left to help you giggle about the whole experiance. Heres to another fine summer!!!


Comments

Sublime carries an NL5 X Skunk cross, its auto flowering and auto fem. Its super easy to grow because of its ruderalis background. Super tight buds, and very stinky. Downside is they only grow to about 3 feet tall and yeild 12-26 grams per plant. This is based on a personal outdoor grow as I never grow indoors.


Comments

I can't find anything - I mean anything - about "Rare Earth Seeds" on the Internet. Nothing. I've bought from the Sublime Cafe (white widow, OG Kush and Kali Mist) and all three grows we're flawless, all girls, all produced, great quality and all three are Rare Earth genetics. That said, I'm after Northern Lights, and really want something as close as i can get to the original NL#5 I had in Amsterdam. Does anyone know anything about the NL for sale at the cafe? Mark?


Comments

I am wondering if you have any recommendations on doctors that would sign the forms. My family doctor is skeptical, as is my specialist. I suffer from Crohns disease, and have been self medicating with cannabis for several weeks now and have notice a dramatic change with regards to pain and inflammation. Much appreciated. Matt. Guelph, Ontario


Comments

Okay, so I checked my M39 plants the other day... I was a fool for not cutting what I assumed to be a male a month ago when I had the chance, because it ended up being male - and the females were much farther into flowering than I had anticipated. I'm hoping they won't be seeded come harvest time. But regardless, I am amazed at how early the M39s are flowering! Literally, solid bud formation (even with some trichomes) and it's a week before Sept. I probably will grow this strain again, just considering how early they seem to finish. I even asked the clerk at Sublime what the earliest strain they had was. I was told it's Rosetta Stone by RareEarth. Well, unfortunately Rosetta doesn't even look like it's done stretching yet, let alone flowering.


Comments

Thank you Al. They're just showing some long hairs now... might be ready by Thanksgiving. They'll probably be 12 ft tall by then. lol. Going back to Shiskaberry next year or Afghan Gold. Thanks again:)


Comments

I would like to know what plant would best suit my need when it comes to EPILEPSY (Grand Mal)& also where can i find a doctor who will be willing to help me deal with my condition. Since i know my specialist wouldn't want to for he is more into prescribing meds to me.


Comments

So after getting caught growing last year, and having it proven at trial that it was for my own use, I'm now facing a suspended sentence and probation. Lawyer claims it's good news, but the reality is that it's not. I can't get a pardon/record suspension for TEN YEARS after my probation, and will face the same hurdles in the job market as any other Convicted Felon. Does that seem fair? To someone who grew some plants for their own use?!? I've been lumped in the same category with people who rob, assault, murder. I get that weed laws are archaic and probation is understandable as a punishment/deterrent...but continuing the punishment for 10+ years and making me less of a citizen because of a plant!!!


Comments

Ah, keeping a smaller plant nearby is a good idea. Mine are far from me, so that is what I usually do. I haven't seen my girls since Aug 1, so I don't know how far along they are. If you predict an early to mid-Oct harvest, I'll take you word on it...though I am going to check em out sometime soon. One of the sexes I wasn't sure of, so left it. If it's male, I gotta cut it sooner than later.


Comments

@al > I'm also growing the M39 outdoors, I think we'll be fine looks like another 6 weeks to me. Put them in May 28th. I'm guessing October 9-10th ? My best advice this time of year is to stay away from them as much as you can. people, hunters, hikers, dog walkers etc look for any sign of a path this time of year. Have patience. I usually have one near by that I can easily check and that helps me determine when the others are ready.


Comments

I have a bad crack habit that I kicked 10 years ago by going on a strong bc bud strain that was bubble bagged. I got a commpassion card at the time. after one year on medical pot I when off it. I have had 2 major relaps (3mons and 6mons) since then and want to get a license to to posses legially so that if I relaps again I can medicate legially. | | what do I do to do this?


Comments

@Brent Skunk finished very late. I've had several in the past not finish in time outdoors (i.e - not near ready by mid-Oct and the onset of 1st frost). I bought Early Skunk from Sensi, but that was garbage stuff and weak. Though I noticed Skunk is quite hardy. I promised myself I wouldn't attempt Skunk outdoors again, but I ended up buying Northern Lights x Skunk (aka M39) from T420. I'm hoping my girls will be ready by mid-Oct. Because it's guerrilla grown, I can't tend to them often or shelter them from the cold and damp.


Comments

Skunk feminized. 100% outdoors. Full sunlight. I got three that have grown to 5-6 feet tall but, still haven't showed any hairs or flowering yet..... I know there's lots of time left but, does skunk tend to start flowering late in the summer with a shorter flowering period?

Comments

Despite being called Kush , OG is actually an 80/20 Sativa cross. Grows pretty slow and Ive never grown it my guess based on other 8020's is 55-70 days once you put the lights back. Dont try and grow this outdoors at least anywhere in Ontarion there wont be time for it to finish up.


Comments

What is the flowering time for the OG Kush sold at the Cafe? Thanks!


Comments

You need an MMRA card to purchase from any of the medical outlets here. However you wont have any problem finding what your looking for in the downtown core.Avoid Moss Park, concentrate your efforts around Kensington or the Beach's. Its not legal here despite what some people think, but it is tolerated and even overlooked as long as your not blowing it in there face or being to open. No worries you'll have no problem finding your medicine for your Chrones.

Comments

@ patience... don't worry about the lower leaves turning yellow. The plant is close to the end of it's life. It is perfectly normal and common for the rest of the plant to suck up the nutrients &, in this case the nitrogen that's most likely lacking in the bloom feeding that you are administering. You might want to feed the plant an extra dose of nitrogen, but is not necessary. just keep doing what your doing and let the plants natural life-cycle take it's course and harvest it when it is ripe to do so!

Great afternoon in Kensington, This is far and away the most vibrant street (Augusta), in the city, its like stepping back 30 years. The people are wonderfull and the atmosphere is so awesome.Sublime is so laid back, and has the best coffee in the city. Was gonna buy the brownies on the way out but I was already wasted on the coffee. Got my beans.

The easiest grow that Mark carries is the AK47 auto flower/feminized. This plant is very easy to grow indoors or outdoors. No worries about sexing, photoperiods, etc. The only downside to this plant is its yield as its an Indica/Ruderalis cross. Only grows to about 3 feet amd yeilds about an ounce per plant.


Comments

What strain would you recommend as a discreet (low odour) and easy grow for a beginner? Thanks!

Okay, so Mark has been away over 4 months and its time we fixed things around here. Several of us here know what were doing, and need to step it up and answer those questions as best we can, for those just starting. Asking questions without answers is pointless esp, when several of us know the answers and have lived them, and made those mistakes in previous grows. Help your fellow growers as best you can, even if you get called on your ideas its still better then leaving people in the dark. I call on all those growers here to help Mark out, remember we all started with our first grow and can help. I'm not sure if Mark has time for this any more, so it's time to make this more give and take amoungst ourselves.

To clear up a few things, If you have your MMAR you can buy clones and seeds, if your over 18 you can buy seeds only. It's very easy, walk in the store see the pretty lady behind the bar, tell her what you want and your out of there inside 5 minutes.


Comments

can anyone tell me, I am an MMAR holder , can i buy clones ? t.i.m.e has clones for sale but no order form on their website


Comments

can you buy one seed of several kinds or just a package deal in the store?


Comments

so I'm 19 and have no medical marijuana license, I can buy seeds no questions asked? bit skeptical.

I've only grown once before a couple years ago. this year i'de decided to give it a try. i got ahold of some "easy ryder" auto flower. i plan to grow outdoors. can anyone give me a few tips as i am about as virgin as you can get at this thanks Bulldozer

Not a question, but a follow-up. So they dropped my Possession for Trafficking and Possession charges. But I am guilty of Production...guess I couldn't avoid that one. But I'm glad the Trafficking BS is gone. It's a shame they can add something like that with zero evidence someone's selling it. I guess it's fun for the Crown to give people PTSD.

Hi, how should I grow my plants outdoors? What kind of Soil or Compost/Medium should I use for outdoor growing.


Comments

Had bad luck with Shiskaberry last year and Afgan Gold the year before. All grown outdoor and yielded 1 oz dry/plant. A few plants. Got a good yield from this stuff called "Island Breeze #5". A bit seedy. I have 100 seeds or so if you want ot work a deal. I bought some Skunk from you guys yesterday, 5/$40.00. Does it have any success outdoor. Any pointers? 100% outdoor. Been growing for 5 years, 3-5 plants but, only my first year did I have a huge yield from seeds someone gave me.... Was beginner's luck I guess.

Hi, I have a Secret Jardin - 5 x 10 x 6 6' Grow Tent, complete with lights, fans, exhaust set up, filters, including GH Power grower 8 with 10 pods with hrydroton and reservoir... pretty much everything one needs to start growing tomorrow. (EXCEPT SEEDS!) I need to sell it ASAP. I have only used it for one grow which was QUITE fruitful. But, my medical marijuana patient "changed his mind" right as I was finished growing, leaving me LITERALLY holding the bag! I had hoped to hang on to the equip and apply to produce under the new MMAR guidelines. But, I have since decided to sell my home. So, in order to sell, I HAVE to get this stuff outta here. I need to sell this tent as fast as possible, so I can have the realtor come in and evaluate my home. Can you PLEASE advise me on who, what, where when and HOW I would go about doing this? I hope you can lead me to a place where I can sell it FAST. I am not sure WHERE one would advertise something like this! ANY advice would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks so much, Milo You may reach me at: MiloLuvsMe@yahoo.com

Does this company obtain seed from Medicalseed Bank in Toronto ? If so I would not buy seed from here, Medicalseed bank is a rip off. The poorest grade of seed and their policy of taking customers money and not replying to emails.

Thanks for fan leaf advise, plants seem okay, I've been picking leaf now for up to 6th bloom week (in my little tent just to draw light to lower branches) I'll stop for now to see if that helps but like I said they look good (300w of florescent lights in a 2'by2' tent) problem is three bushy G13/Buddha in my little tent since mother natural was good to me and give me 3 girls instead of 2. I bought these seed from Mark excellent quality 8 out of 10 were female. Hope your Ok Mark come help us online when you can. And thanks out there for advice


Comments

To the person who asked about removing fan leaves....Fan leaves should never be removed Unless they are completely yellow or dead. They are vital for a plants photosynthesis. They store the energy from the light and distribute that energy throughout the plant. Removing them will retard growth time and stress out the plant especially in the bloom stage.

Hey Mark. First off, I hope you are well. Second, if you need some relief moderating this board, shoot me an email. Now, my question - do you have Kali Mist at the seedbank????? Cheers! Jeff

No question here, just venting. Anyone else out there dealing with growing charges? This shit is killing me. My charges are from pre-'Safe Streets' passing in Nov, but I'm being fully railroaded. The number of plants, seedlings, clones, and unrooted cuttings was high; but it was all dinky small stuff under a foot tall with only little bud on the few flowering plants. It was a "Sea of Green" grow spread between fluoros and a 250W tent, but they've increased my charges! What was just grow/possession is now P for P of over 3kg!!! This makes no sense since there's no way all the dry weight would've added to even half a pound (incl leaves, stems, stalks etc), let alone 6 times that amount.

Mark, Fan leaves on my 3 girls take up a lot of space in my 2'by 2' Bloom tent. I'm into my 3rd wk Blooming these G13/Buddha's is it safe to trim the large fan leaves on these plants to better position them away from each other and to enhance light penetration? Will trimming away fan leaves at any time during the bloom period cause stress to plants? Thanks

Hello Fellow Green Lovers! Can anyone tell me if it's a problem on plants having hollow stocks? Very bushy, lush green, no signs of slow growth, burned tips, yellowing leaves etc. Just look extremely healthy but with hollow stalks, and I do mean very hollow, almost like looking through a McDonalds straw hollow! Any idea's as to why? Much obliged for your input/thoughts etc. :)

Hi Mo Kaur, i have just finished my chemo treatment and Raditation treatment for a tumour in my lower colon. I will be having surgery next month. I can tell you that if i did not smoke the good leaf after my treatments daily i would have had a far harder time with it. I was offerd narcotics but turned the offer from the Dr. down. He and all my care givers at the hospital all know i self medicate with the good leaf i'm 55 years old. Rick Simpson has a book out called Phoenix Tears, google his name and you will find him. Good luck, be strong !

Everyone is entitled to their opinion Bigbud, and the disgruntled guy sounds like he was just voicing his dis-satisfaction with the "respond within 24 hours" part?....He didn't say anything bad about Mark, dis him, or whatever. In fact he said he didn't even know Mark, and for all he knows there could be 5 people that work this site and answer our questions?

Ya know, I find it funny that you sure shoot off your vulgar crap about how Mark may be doing something with regards to ganja laws, and fighting for smokers rights etc etc. Meanwhile here's big tough vulgar mouth that hides behind Mark and lets him do all the work cause you don't have the balls to stand up for your rights like Mark does.

Bought 10 AK-47 seeds and want to start them inside to plant outside the end of May. I don't have lights, but I have lots of window. My intention is to plant inside the beginning of March. Is it wise of me to first start without lights and is this a good start date? I am in my sixties and this has worked in the distant past with old fashion weed. Most of the references I have found on the site seem geared to those growing inside. Peterborough area for start and planting. Thanks, JP

Hi Mark, I have read in some of your posts that you PH your water to 6.5 for Veg and 5.5 for Bloom. Are you using these PH values in Promix? I use promix and even though the plants are OK without PHing the water I would like to start PHing to get better results. Will PHing the water help my plants? I tested my tap water and it is always about 7.6 (Mississauga) which seems quite high for the plants.

I'm currently growing from feminized seeds. From reading prior posts it appears that plants from feminized seeds can turn hermie under stress. If i clone the these plants will my clones handle stress better or would they still have the same chance of going hermie as the mother plant? I'm guessing it's better to grow regular seeds (non-feminized) instead of feminized and then separate the males...your thoughts?

Hi Mark, Purchased some Feminized seeds from you last year for my FIRST grow. - Planted 3 of them on October 1st. - They all sprouted :-) - Vegged them for 3-weeks - Bloomed them for 9-weeks Harvested them exactly 93 days after planting the seeds!! All I can say is WOW ... they grew fast and they grew strong! Got about 7 Ounces DRY total from the 3 plants. They all looked like giant colas the size of pop bottles. Grew them under a 400W LED following your instructions to use ProMix. Fed them lightly during Vegging and heavily during Bloom with standard Miracle Grow. Quick and easy grow thanks to the awesome seeds.

Hello, I was wondering if there is a way to get information on doctors. I would like to get in touch with someone who has gone through the process for something in the category 2 description. My family doctor treated me very poorly, and let me say I did not ask for this. I was seeing a psychologist and on the final report ( stopped seeing because was very expensive ) he suggested Marinol as a treatment for multiple things. Synthetic THC. My Doctor looked like he saw a ghost after the report and dismissed the idea. I am Vegan and believe in all natural living and do not like to take prescription pills. I have tried and they always have negative side effects. I have tried Marijuana and found it very relaxing and pleasent ( have yet to try the suggested Marinol because of my family doctor. ) Sorry for the length of the msg and I really hope there is someone who can help point me in the right direction as this has been a long struggle as is.

Hi Mark! Much obliged with regards to answering my hermy seed question :) For the record, they where from a group of 4 Kali-Mist plants where 1 specific plant produced 5 seeds in total, and yes I do know for sure that they where all from 1 plant. So I am assuming in all due respect that the food, temp or stress could be iliminated maybe?. Thanx Mark................... Mikey Mike :)

Hey mark hope all is well! I want to run a 1000w light in a grow tent with a 450 cfm fan and carbon filter.I was thinking if I vent the exhaust out the window it would cause steam from the heat of the lamps and make it noticeable.. If I just vent the exhaust into the same room as the tent and leave a crack in the window, as we have cold temps at the moment should I be ok? Will I run into mold problems?

I am using 6 225watt L.E.D. i had very fast growth a first no it seems to have stopped, my clones are now over 3 months on veg and look very small. 2 citrus kush and 2 juicy fruit. i've tried 3 different heights, of course from 3 different sources, what would be the appropriate distance for the lights to be. i was thinking they might be similar to Florescent bulbs due to their lack of heat, they are very bright, i have a light meter and all seems good, i have also added 2 full spectrum spiral florescent bulbs for extra. any ideas would be great..... you are seriously overfeeding them... the most 20-20-20 I ever used is like 1ml/L... that's ONE ml per one liter of water.... in 3 months I would have 8 feet tall plants... LED are best treated like regular fluorescent lights... please buy better nutrients... 20-20-20 is really meant for outdoors ONLY

I just posted about my germinated seeds growing into long, 4 - 5 inch long stalks, but producing no leaves. I apologize to the forum for not making it clear that I didn't buy them from the store in Kensington, but from a place downtown. I'm only looking for info, at this time. I'm just wondering how common this is, and whether or not it has a typical cause such as from something I might have done wrong. The other two seeds germinated, but failed to grow at all. its usually a problem with too much humidity or incorrect pH in roots ... tell me more details about what you use for humidity control and specifically which medium you use.... details details details .... even shwagg bag seeds do better .... and I mean its called "weed" so technically should grow anywhere .. like weeds right.. so when something as drastic as what you describe happens ... I would say its something you did... sorry

The last three germinated seeds I've tried, grew into long 4 - 5 inch long stalks, but produced no leaves, and finally just bent over and died. Is it the seed batch, or something I did? you would have to tell me how you did it and what lights you have which soil etc.

Hi All! Wondering about something? I've heard that using Feminized plants for mothers, is not a good idea? If this is correct, what about a Feminized plant that turned Hermy and gave me some seed's.? hermaphroditic plants give seeds thus name "hermie" That would also tell me that they would be basically be guaranteed females too? they would also be genetic copies of the mom thus more hermies Does anyone know how they would work out for either just growing them for what they are, or alternatively be used as a mother? Much obliged :) don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with "few" seeds in a hermaphroditic plant ... but it depends on how you see "few"... 10? is ok 20? ...100? 1000? and more often then not the slightly hermaphroditic plant will become and very badly stressed hermies with nothing but seeds... if you don't mind few seeds here and there its ok to grow them, but observe them closely for signs of potential problems like lots and lots of male parts.. balls .... which you can cut off before they open and eventually you may have to get fresh seeds... FYI a feminized seeds becomes a hermie after experiencing stress (bad temps, high humidity, bad food etc.)

when is the latest i can pollinate my flowers I am in week 6 of a 9 week strain I only plan on doing one bud per plant is it too late to do now or should I wait for the next cycle? but since i am only doing one bud per plant I can let that branch go as long till the seeds are ready what do you recommend? I would never do pollinating and budding at the same location because pollen is very insidious and can linger... everything you try will result with uneven and unknown results... good read

Mark, referring to your feeding schedule which I'm following but I am a little confused about. Can I mix my bub booster with my sugar in the same 1 litre of water for feed or should I water with these nutrients separately in which case not every nutrient is going to fit into my weekly feed schedule. A primary, Sugar and a bub booster added together per feeding per litre might get toxic don't you think. I'm thinking of adding one other nutrient to increase yield what do you suggest Mark. I tried all the nutrients all at the same time for the entire cycle (primary + bud booster + sugar + black + gold + cannazym + B1 + pH down), then I had other people try it themselves.... toxic? no... necessary? no .... cannazym should be used only if roots have problems otherwise don't bother... B1 is ok but necessary? meehh .... black and gold can be added once or twice per cycle in total and it seems to do the same as adding it all the time....ph down ? promix does its job whether you ph or not so meehhh.... primary + bud booster + sugar? absolutely necessary to me ...... I tried this in promix (aka triple mix) and coco ..... people like you in a pure water system will find that anything that is sticky or gummy (like sugar or organic nutrinets) will settle on the bottom if not continuously moving and/or collect in the pump and .... gets stuck, breaks it, diminishes flow..... so you should be careful for sure... but I see a clear difference in yield and taste when I add sugars.

I got 5 White Widow feminized from the cafe. It's 7 weeks from seed and they look amazing - 16-18" high and dense as hell. I've got them in 3.18 gallon pots and don't want to transplant them again. Ideal finished height for my wife's comfort is 4 feet. Using 600hps. So, my question is, how high should they get before I switch them to flower? How much will they grow over those 8 weeks of bloom under that light with humidity in the low 30's? humidity does no matter since there is nothing you can do.... I guess it does matter IF its over 65% but anything below that is just dandy Cheers!

response: red bugs me lately so my answer is below + this

Remember that penetration of light is at best 1.5 feet into the canopy of a plant under HID light (like your 600) and yes you can spread out the stems with bamboo sticks or whatnot but in general that is a limitation of a light. Consequently its not worth vegging a plant taller then 1.5 feet... set to bloom at this point she will still grow in the first 2 weeks of bloom (white widow less then a northern lights let's say but its all in general) and under a 400W HID would end up ..guessing here.. may be 4 feet tall... a 600W 2 or 2.5 feet tall... 1000W 2 feet or less... the more the power the less stretching and if she is still growing after the first 2 weeks its not "growth" but "stretching" which means she is wasting energy on the stem rather then on the bud... that's why a bigger light has more yield and tightness (in general and there are masters of their particular light which mostly depends on how you "read" your plant and feed accordingly) ... your "goal" should be about a pound dry... 1.5 for a 1k light and half p for a 400W

Anyways.. how tall they are is not the beat way to gauge the need to start bloom... ..its better to see how much space they took over in your tent while vegging... example.. I would sort of arbitrarily determined (by looking from above) IF the overall canopy of my plants in a given space covers 80% of my floor (without plants touching and properly spaced out so they all get light)... knowing that if I set them to bloom at this point the remaining 20% of empty floor space will be covered by the first 2 weeks of growth in bloom.

So to continue this example... if my plants are all roughly 6 inches tall but I have 20 or 25 plants and they cover 80% of my space then they go to bloom (height rarely enters my consideration).... if I have 2 plants and I pinched (called toping in the video but its the same thing, it just bushes them out) them at 4 inches to get them bushier they will probably need to be both 2 feet tall before they cover 80% of the space so it takes longer in veg to get there then 25 plants ....

In your case (imagine) if the plants would have no more space to properly expand while blooming (in those first 2 weeks if you set them to bloom today) then its best to just bloom immediately and next time do it sooner... but in a mean time remove i.e. cut off the branches which get little or no light due to over crowding, but do that as they get crowded. When you do that she will concentrate energy on the top buds and overall yield is more. If on the other hand the plants still have plenty of space then keep vegging until they do overtake this arbitrary 80% level.

Some how my lights didn't go on the past 2-3 days now my two week old seedlings are drooping and wilting. Right before this happened i just watered them , i fixed my lights now like i said they are drooping and wilting and today it looked like they are getting a little light burn can you help please i know i should move the light farther away what's a good distance and how do i fix the drooping and such there is no easy answer, they will either live or die... if you have fluorescent lights any distance is ok (in general T5 - 8 inches, T2 - 2 inches)... with HID 3 feed away for 48 hours ..... recover will take minimum a week and could be way longer, a month?.... good news is they are "weeds" so they should live

Hello again ... what would you suggest for a 12x12 room that would be the most productive and energy efficient setup ? i.e. one light or two / florescent or HPS/MH etc , etc . ( I want to come out of the closet , for lack of a better term !! ) Thx in advance max 4 x 1000W lights ventilated with 800 CFM inline fan with a CAN-FAN 100 carbon filter


Comments

Hey again ... i was looking for some advice (obviously) ... what would be the most energy efficient / productive setup for let's say a small 10x10 room . Is one light sufficient ? ... fluorescent or MH/HPS etc . Remember I'm looking for energy efficient / productive ... I want to come out of the closet , for lack of a better term !! Thx in advance ! 600W HPS would probably be the most efficient overall (this space can fit 3 or may be 4 lights max)... Personally I would go with a 1000W HPS, less efficient but more yield in the end and still up to 4 lights but the overall setup is complicated.... T5 fluorescent work well I find to bud the plants but yield less then either the 600W or 1000W but its cheap to run and easy to setup .... LED setup is efficient but unproven still and I have my doubts for now.... friends are using it but its too early to say anything...

Hi torontoseedbank! I've had nothing but helpful service and thoughtful people helping me from this site so first I'd like to say thank you very much! The ladies turned out well. I was wondering, what are the stats or quality of: sweet tooth autoflower? I would like to try those as I've had previous grow with autoflowers. Also, do you know when your stock of purple kush auto flower will be coming in? I have zero experience with auto flower .... if you would like to share your experience I will make a page out of it (if its useful of course)... I'm mostly interested in time cycles and feeding since with auto flower 12/12 light cycle should not matter and thus feeding schedules are complicated.... personally I would use auto flower outdoors only... I have no idea when the kush auto will be in...

just picked up 5 Oh God and 5 OG Kush fem. had 1 Oh God that was a really dinky little seed, but it was the first to sprout! all 10 have popped their heads, picked up on tuesday and germed that night per your site's method. all 10 are healthy and showing first set's, humidity dome removed the second i saw them pop their heads, and I planted them each only with a tiny tail showing, some did a couple weird twists and turns, but are all good. and your right to have no fear posting ontario seed bank, got 5 star's there a year ago, all hermied out heavily. looking good so far, cheers .... if anyone calls me and gets a recommendation to them know that I'm trying to make you go away.

Hi, I am looking for some clones, I don't really care about the strain, I just want to start growing some medicinal marijuana asap.If you can help me out I am not really picky about the price, I have a Health Canada authorization card so please let me know as soon as you can if you can help me. My E-mail adress is xxxxxxxxxx and my phone number is xxxxxxxxxx. Thank you, Anthony. try tcc or calm, local Toronto compassionate clubs... at this moment I can not take on new members, I'm sorry ..... and don't leave your personal info here ... you will get spammed or contacted by nefarious creatures

Hey Mark ... my new seedlings are getting tall and spindly ... is this normal or what should I do . I just put them under my 600w light at 50% intensity about 3-4 ' away , still in the humidity dome with a heat pad . Good / bad / suggestions . Thx for your help , as always . they are getting this way because they are in a dome.... take the dome off immediately but spray profusely with a mist and repeat in 15 minutes... if they wilt put the dome back on until they return and repeat until they don't wilt.... you may have to repeat this for a few days... the point is that they only need 100% humidity (aka dome) to start but then they should be acclimated to normal temp/humidity asap... when I sprout I do not use a dome at all, they get used to it quickly, they are weeds after all... I may use a dome if its cold ..under 25C .... but I would rather bring in a cheap heater


Comments

Hey i helped a guy out with a few bud about a week ago and i am now pretty sure that he was acting as a narc. i was just wondering how long it usually takes for them to put out a warrant/arrest someone? Any suggestions? weed? immediate arrest... if you do other things who knows


Comments

I was wondering you say that the nutes don't stay good for more than forty eight hours without oxygenation I was just wondering what is left after forty eight hours and how will the plants react if I give it to them if you use A & B probably nothing since its a "syntethic"... splash the water around before giving it to plants to add a bit of oxygen... if you use an organic then the stuff in nutrients tent to rot and smell so too (good organic smells sweet, bad organic smell rotten).... most growers have an air pump or an air stone moving water around so it does not go stale...


Comments

In your feeding nute section what do you mean mix 50% 80% of ur nutes do you mix in a one gallon container if so how or whats the easiest way to do so my last grow I didn't use any nutes because I didn't understand what you ment . Please help .....read the link first but in essence a brand of nutrients (say Pure Blend Pro) wants you to add 30 ml of its food to a Gallon of water (4 L) in order to feed your plants.... so this represents 100% of nutrients as suggested for a mature plant under a 1000W light.... to simplify I suggest you start at ... 50% or 25%... rarely 100%


Comments

What is a good choice for a new grower? not any auto flower, its meant for advanced or outdoors ... not kali mist, she is difficult, I would suggest the basics like skunk or northern lights feminized, but really they are "weeds" just do your basic research .... Also how many plants per 1000watt bulb I would start with 10 just because of the odds of life, some may die some may be smaller... but 5 will do just fine too


Comments

this guy is an ass do not order seeds from him try ontario seed bank also located in toronto seeds recieved from this guy nothing like the descriptions he gives if you consider Ontario Seed Bank superior to me then go shop there please, I mean please, here is their link


Comments

New grower do u need ventilation fan blowing air in as wellas out or is out enough? out is enough so long as you have no issues with heat...usually a passive intake is enough for the out-take fan to naturally create a suction (negative pressure) through the intake (thus bringing in cold air) without a need for a fan, so in essence you need the intake hole open but probably not the fan.... but if lets say you have temps over 30C then an intake hole may need a fan to speed up the cold air ...as a rule of thumb I make sure to have OUT fan twice stronger at least then IN fan.. as you want to maintain negative pressure. How long in veg before turn 18 to 6 to 12 to 12 into flower? any time you wish, as plants go they are ready to flower after like 4 inches in height however... usually when your space is 80% overgrown with plants... since when you switch to bloom they still grow for 2 weeks and they need space thus the extra 20% of space.... obviously 20 plants will grow into a space faster then 5... so 20 plants under a 1000W would probably be half a foot tall and 5 1.5 feet tall when switched to bloom


Comments

I was looking at your catalogue and saw that the BC big bud was26 coming soon. I was just wondering how soon? thank you for your valuable time. sorry but its not really coming it was on order but it never did, don't know why... am too lazy to change the site

Hi Mark, I have left several voice messages and am not happy at all with your services. I purchased 30 feminized Critical Mass seeds from the Sublime cafe and only 7 of them germinated. Very disappointing. I'm not looking for a refund, however, I would like to get some replacement seeds. I would hope that you will reach out to me as I trust that this is not how you have grown your business successfully. After leaving 5 voice messages over the past month and not receiving any call backs, you leave me no choice but to leave this message in your forum. If you are reading this post and you are not Mark, I sincerely apologize as this is not about growing per se. Please do answer your phone or return your voice messages. PS - Sublime Cafe phone number is also out of service. Thanks, James how did you sprout them


Comments

awww did i hurt your feeling calling you a fraud? yes No i dont want your shitty seeds hmmmm there are plenty of other seeds available I been saying!! from better sources truth hurts ehh dude learn to interact with other humans


Comments

Just wanted to say thanks Mark for all your help and great products and that they have always turned out to be great. To the guy who keeps posting complaints about fraud get a life you make nasty threatening comments what do you expect.

i purchased 10 blueberry skunk and 5 afgani gold they arrived quickly and sprouted immediately was very excited. The description said finished at end of September it is close to end of October and the blueberry skunk is still a few weeks from ready, The Afghani gold has buds the size of my pinky finger. I am not new to this if anyone has an explanation of why this would happen i would apologize to owner for calling him a fraud. Instead he tells me to fuck off and he dont give a shit. How would anyone else feel if the time work and money invested turned out like this? buyers beware... let me explain again since you are in fact an asshole, not a customer but an asshole, if you walk into my cafe with the language you used on this forum I and my stuff would probably toss you the fuck out, but yet here your anonymous asshole self can be an asshole ..... see I do not like crazy people ... who appear crazy, or if life made you crazy, my seeds made you crazy, ... I don't give a shit, smoke some weed... a conversation should have began with... a question or a phone call but spewing garbage first puts you on par with an ape, so perhaps an asshole is a gross understatement..... but waaait now you are the victim


Comments

in response to this guy who says you are a fraud. I purchased 5 summertime buddha's last year and they all sprouted perfectly and gave me exactly what I paid for. thank you for those great seeds. p.s. is it just me or does the summertime have that liverwurst taste when burnt? great high by the way! and fairly solid nug for a 250 watter. they did triple in height easily. thanks again mark


Comments

Have my Medical license and can provide any and all documentation. Where does a guy in Southwestern Ontario (windsor) get clones? I tried Section 56 like you suggested.. and they do not supply clones. Am I going to have to buy seeds? If so, I need a good producer .. a plant that gives a good harvest. If you can't help with the clones, I understand.. Can you suggest the strain of seed that would be an indica and a good producer. Thank you you should try contacting and joining every club in Toronto and get one or two clones and make them your mothers... starting from seed is still a pain in the ass compared to getting a clone.... any of the strains I carry are good for their own right but taste and pain relief is personal so recommending anything is pointless.... CALM should have clones periodically 


Comments

thisguy is a total fraud i paid good money for crap seeds that never started to bud until october when confronted he calls me too stupid to live some people may have gotten lucky but think is very risky to order from this guy. He gives all online seed banks a bad name, and treats his customers like shit..Beware memory laps my friend your first post was unerased below and it was all fuck you fuck this.. post is still there.. now you are a victim and need help ? again ... you are wrong guy .... you do not complain to me at the end of harvest about something you should be on in June.... so after 4 months you want what? more of my shitty seeds? oh fucken cry me a river already asshole


Comments

Hi Mark, After a lot of research (googling) I've discovered why my plants are droopy... Powdery Mildew. How do I prevent this obstacle in the future? Can my crop be saved and if so .. how? (still in veg) Thank you for all the work you do, Mark. You've helped so many people. in veg any commonly available product from home depot or a local garden shop, they all work but powdery mildew happens usually when a spoar from outside finds a wet environment... in a short terms washing off the mildew with lots a lots of water and then drying it quickly helps (spray just before lights ON and get a dehumidifier or crank the ventilation to max) ... then if that does not work get a product with sulphur in it but never ever use that in bloom (bad taste) .... + get rid of any sources of moisture


Comments

Hey mark i just picked the last of the buble gum i also got ur northern there was some varience in the plants but over all i am happy this last one is actually a clone and it seems to be the best one of all i will be reordering i herd that mothers from fem seeds arent good but i have had the best success with a clone. Why would a fem seed not be suitable or is it ok if the mother just seems to be good genetics. To anyone worried dont be uit is alot of work to get it right but the seeds i belive are good. Great to see the price drop of our meds looking foreward to next round. Thanks for ur hard ongoing work OK if its works for you don't stop however fem seeds have some hermie genes in them which is what makes them fem in the first place, with (environmental) stress (overcrowding, too hot for too lng) this hermie gene can create a hermie plant, but I know plenty of people who do successful cloning of fem plants too so its not a black and white issue


Comments

Mark, My N/Light fem seeds purchaed at ur store I'm in early veg stage. Both plants from transplant period into promix grew with brown and yellow leaves one with long stem needing support. (Too much watering? I don't think, stems a bit red in color). Both seem to be recovering but I'm 3 weeks into veg and they are tiny I think. Indoor garden using tent and flo lights with promix Aerogarden lights only for veg stage not sure how/why stress. not seen this b4. Seeds are expensive should I start over again. I like my winter harvest to be plentiful had some success with ur NL seeds before any advice mark is welcomed thanks 4 ur help. call me and I'll mail you some other seeds, but in a mean time just call me so I can ask you more questions... the problems you describe usually come from over watering or not enough light, which promix exactly? any nutrients in water? which one? how often do you water? 


Comments

Do you sell lights or kits as well..? no


Comments

Hi Mark, finally got my order today. (so disregard my post below) Still I am not sure wy it took almost 4 weeks to get here but hey, that's canada post 4 ya. Thanks again, k


Comments

will see you in person soon so you can explain to me why you do not give a fuck about the way you treat your customers calling me too stupid to live because i purchased seeds from you because you are a troll let me explain ... you think my seeds suck (because you are of course an expert) but yet you want me to do what .... give you more of the seeds which apparently suck... so which one is it? my seeds suck? or you want replacements? the phone is god damn listed on this fucking page , I've been back for a week and no one calls me with complains ... but you think I give a shit if you type anonymous messages on this forum, fuck you, I give replacements to everyone who is nice and not an uncultured prick like you.... assuming you can read


Comments

do not buy from this guy his descriptions are way off seeds are not what he is selling them as and i quote he does not give a fuck indeed about you for sure


Comments

why are the afgani seeds you sold me just starting to bud outdoors? because its the outdoor season and the light aka the sun is ending its bloom period moving on to winter, this is time to harvest and not start seedlings


Comments

do you sell to anyone interested or must you be a card holder?


Comments

What is the penalty for growing 1 plant indoors for personal consumption? in GTA a fine r diversion, in Peel depends but it can be a record + money fine, rarely jail, with a previous record who knows .... am not a lawyer

Mark...I found a single mature seed in a bud after i harvested, dried, and cured my plant,... will the seed most likely be female or hermie!? hermie Thanks


Comments

Question, lets say I have a 8 x 8 flower tent and 4 x 600W lights with 12-14 8"D pots in it. The idea is to perpetually run the flower tent. Is it possible to Veg 24-28 smaller 6"D pots in a 4 x 4 tent with 2 x 600W lights and then move into the flower room and not lose yield? Or do I need the same space vegging as I do flowering. usually veg room can be half size, half light wattage of the bloom room (and obviously bigger is always better) since plants still grow for the first 2 weeks of bloom (and they grow fast if all is well done) so when you transfer you need to account for that expansion... 


Comments

what is the least amount of time you recommend for vegging indoors before switching to bloom if I hope to achieve half a pound from an indica dominant strain under a 400 watt MH bulb. depends on number o plants... sayyy 1 plant, 4? weeks+.. 5 plants may be 2-3 weeks.... not counting sprouting


Comments

Hi Mark, I made an order with you back on September 19. The email payment was confirmed as well. I still have not recieved the order. Any chance you track your shipments? I know you're on a trip at the moment but I am hoping you can offer some words of wisdom... If I still havent recieved them by Oct 14 I will call you. Thanks, K

Hi Mark I just finished harvesting my blueberry skunk (which looks awesome btw) and I was just wondering if u knew the potency? Or any cannabinoid info? Thnx Ryan


Comments

I have setup a way to purchase grass online anonymously. I would like to know if anyone will be willing to support the idea? Thanks I must state that I have nothing to do with this .... seriously ... BY "support" I mean I wish you well because pot should be legal and you are a warrior on a dangerous path and I hope that the profits you make do not end up in some lawyers pocket ..... I hope you also understand that an investigation usually takes about a year, year and a half so keep that in mind (I don't mean I'm going to call the cops .. pllleeeeaaaaase, I mean as you become known they will become aware one way or another) 


Comments

Hi Mark, I placed an order (for the first time) from you on Wednesday Sep 19th, and my email payment was confirmed... Do you confirm orders via email or should I just keep my eyes on my mail box? K I'm still trying to see how this email transfer works and how it fits in my day. I'm basically don't want to reply to each order since in theory you can just call me on the number above if you're freaking out or whatever. Also I don't do this full time... when you call me im probably in the garden working.

Short answer.... yes just wait or call me this Monday.


Comments

Hi Mark, I had to cut an 8ft plant early on Sept 12th. The plant was a good producer but only 25% of the hairs were brown. I haven't smoked any yet as it is still drying. Do you think it will be OK but the high will be shorter (so you end up smoking it more often) or crap.


Comments

hi mark..i have a rosetta stone growing outdoors and she is about 8 feet... i was wondering what should i expect in yield from her?....thankyou! I need to know more to make such prediction, but a pound is not unexpected


Comments

Hi Mark, I am the student who you replied to further below on this forum, I just read your answer. I would never have any slant towards the law with zero sympathy for the sick, actually the opposite. I would hope to utilize community based principles and work in conjunction with a compassion club. I don't seek to "expose" them. I am looking to studies done by individuals such as Rob Callaway from UBC and Andrew Hathaway from the University of Guelph for guidance, and if anything I would think their research helped promote a further understanding of compassion clubs aside from the way they are stereotypically (and negatively) presented in the media. Some individuals have zero understanding of what compassion clubs are except for what they read and see on the news. My understanding of community-based research principles is that it makes the research outcomes accessible and locally relevant to their specific interests and needs, as well as working with the community itself in collecting data that reflect the reality of life for people in that population. It also has a purpose of affecting social change and stresses collaboration, so I guess that would be my purpose. I'm not sure you ever worked with sick people.... always remember that they are difficult, paranoid and scared and angry and demanding .... I believe you mean well and you should persist .... Alyson will probably speak to you, may be even this club.... Marco will open up too

Hi mike, my father in law has cancer and is going through chemo but was told not much time left :( He lives in Toronto but we don't but are coming there to see him and do whatever it takes to help. Being new to cannabis and only learning about them now was hoping you could help us with some questions. 1. How long does the whole approval process take in order to purchase legally? Forms take 8 to 10 weeks to process and often longer 2. If we buy the seeds and grow our own how long is that process? setup 1 week, seedlings 4 weeks, vegging 2 weeks, bloom 8 weeks... that is the most basic cycle = 4? months... even if you get a permit and buy clones (faster) its still a 2.5 month cycle to get cannabis.... a cannabis club is better for someone like you .... Calm first, TCC or Section 56 3. Do you have the crop that can be used to make hemp oil with right amount of thc? in short no since the tests are too expensive and Health Canada won't let us use their mass spectrometers, read this BUT keep in mind that I am skeptical, see also this.... also read the comments of this article, they are more interesting then the article itself 4. Do you sell hemp oil? no Considering the short amount of time we are given any help and answer is greatly appreciated. If you know of alternative medicine and doctors in Toronto that are experts with cancer that will help too. Thanks Problem is that there is no one professional who takes this seriously enough to do something, when they are they are harassed by Health Canada .... be persistent, Calm people should be the one to ask first


Comments

outdoors, about 1/2 hour north of toronto. when is the best time to harvest? first week of october? before first frost? thanks!! if they are ready harvest as soon as the colour on the hair changes which could/should be now (if not ready they did not get enough lumens overall in their cycle and they keep extending their finish) BUT a good reason to harvest is frost.... I would be watching the weather closely and inevitably the weather news will advice of frost (at night)... then you harvest a day before ..... 2nd reason to harvest is a prolonged rain spell which usually happens at the end of September and into October... somewhat like now but I'm in Toronto, you are not so watch for your weather... if it rains more then a week then I would cut since mold may be of issue


Comments

Hi I got my license July 31/12 got my plants up and going. My question is until I harvest I have to purchase on the street Is there any place to supply me until then other than order through Health Canada ? if you wish yes Thanks for your time to answer my question I can not take on a new member until Oct.15 and given there is a waiting line .... I would say go to Section 56 first, TCC or Calm all reputable compassionate clubs in Toronto...it may be a pain in the ass to join but given the nature of things its the only thing to avoid the streets (and get quality)


Comments

Hi Mark, I'm sorry but i'm still not clear on the question I asked you re R Form. Nothing has changed for me, does the R form work for both my production and possession licenses? Thanks again! Yes, nothing has changed therefore you can mail the R-Form

I'm doing a PhD in Sociology at University of Toronto. I'm interested in doing some qualitative field research at a compassion clinic in the area. Essentially my overall dissertation idea has to do with 'access' to medical marijuana in Canada and the kind of networking individuals have to do to obtain licensing (including what it means for those involved, such as doctors who are willing to prescribe it, individuals who use it medicinally but don't have a license and generally pointing to Canadians who have difficultly gaining access), but I think an equally important story are the various dispensaries and compassion clubs in Ontario and how they actually operate (it was my understanding that dispensaries, for example, are not technically 'legal' but operates under civil disobedience/grey area of the law)- including more specifically their role within the medicinal community, and the subculture itself. Compassion clinics are even more of interest to me because from what I understand, compassion societies have been filling in the holes left by Health Canada's inadequate program. A project such as this is pretty innovative and would be the first of its kind in my area. I think there is a real lack of understanding, as well as a tension or resistance from the government to fully accept marijuana medicinally, maybe due to its history and the trouble separating its recreational uses from medicinal ones. I've received some responses from CALM and a couple others who have said they have check with legal counsel and not sure if they can help me out, my question is what is the best way to approach asking dispensaries to participate? What are the red flags in my explanation? I will make a giant presumption here and try to speak for "my" community....No one will warm up to you because the whole issue is illegal and as anything illegal you want to protect that which you have, and we have a lot to protect in Toronto, many clubs and many ways to get help HOWEVER here is the problem..... CALM was raided twice... I was raided 3 times .... THC was raided once.... Everyone I know has been raided (as in busted by police) at least once (yet NOT ONE OF US is ever found guilty of anything).... and everyone is harassed by police .... every time an article in the media comes out it is slanted towards the law and never towards the sick and often dying patients trying to get some relief ..... why would anyone want to expose themselves ? there is zero benefit to a club exposing themselves ... I am not trying to be sarcastic but if you have a reason lay it out here please .... you can always watch Cannabiz (good documentary) and see a good view on "us" .... see me if you wish (at 6:11 mark) here

Hi Mark; I need some info and i would appreciate it if you could help me. 1-How the designated grower works, how do we split at the end? however you agree to do it .... its all based on specific needs  2-Am i allowed to purchase my 5 months limit at once? yes Limit of 1 lb a month for example. yes 3-Is a grower allowed to sell to me? according to the 2003 Hitzig ruling which still stands to this day - YES, the grower is allowed to accept reasonable payments I do have MMAR. 4-Are you a designated grower? yes BUT I am full and Health Canada does not currently accepts any applications for the designated permits 5-Are you allowed to supply compassion clubs? allowed? lol who would I ask for permission? I sell and pay taxes .... I wish someone would give me a piece of paper with an actual bonified "Supplier if Cannabis" lable  6-Can we make an appointment with you to discuss other information we need? as it states on my website here I am fully and not able to accept new members... try section 56 or CALM thx.

Hi Mark, I have to renew my licenses soon. Do I just send in the R form or do I have to fill out any of the others as well? Thanks IF absolutely nothing changed on your license, no address changes , no amount changes, nothing... then R form is OK... if there are ANY, ANY, ANY changes then you must fill the forms from the beginning, B1 or B2 + others + picture (even if not technically necessary I make it easier for Health Canada)

i guess i'm not so lucky now had to pull 3 more male rosetta stone plants today thats great. so whats the deal with fem seeds that odds are like 75/25 instead of 50/50 with just normal seeds.This is my first time for paying big bucks for fem seeds and not having that good of results so far is this normal....? no .... but since you are the only one having problems I am a bit confused... did you get it in store or online... I can mail/give you a replacements but I get the point that it is late now


Comments

mark could you please tell me how one of my rosetta stone seeds turned male? Just lucky because I didn't think there was any chance of that happening so I haven't been checkin them for signs of been males I would say if I would have been one day later it would have seeded my hole crop so my next question is .Is this some kind of rare thing or sould I just kill it like any other male plant... is it rare? yes and no... when you create a stress environment the feminized varieties have a higher chances of turning hermaphroditic ... this can happen to a regular non feminized female but feminized especially do not like stress like 1. overcrowding 2. temps over 30C 3. Humidity over 70%

Just Harvested G13/buddha strain, 1 plant indoors. This is my 2nd grow so.... some unnecessary stretching but I'm learning. My first attempt at this strain ended in the death of 2 sisters early in bloom from bud booster poisoning I suspect so I've let up on nutrients as suggested in your guide and got this girl through the bloom period with what looked like some proudly created decent bud, not real tight and heavy, lack of bud booster in week 4, 5 and 6 in bloom, or not enough of it but I had orange hairs with resin on bud leaves just like the photos...but no buzzzzz from the smoke... this stuff wouldn't get my wife high! lol So I'm baffled Mark. You say in a earlier post that seeds can be inconsistent in quality- is that the problem here? not to this degree... I am confused too My feedings did not include B1s sugars or mircos are they critical Mark? Would that make a difference? I'm growing 2 NL from feminized seeds I bought at your shop and hope to do better. The heat this summer makes indoor growing challenging have to keep the lid open to keep things cool in 2' by 4' 4' tent Thanks for your continuing support Mark first.. let me tell you an example... I know every kush in Toronto by smell, everyone loves kush, people will steal from their grandmothers to get kush... its does. nothing. to. me. ... the smell is there, the taste is there  ..... and yet I feel like I smoked a banana peel (really I tried when I was younger and it gave me a headache) .... for that reason I recommend buying two strains, chances are one wont suck for you.... but back to you... if you harvest a strain too early and not dry properly it won't work (mostly)... the cure process changes sugars inside from sugars to whatever (am not technical on this) and it should take 7 days at 20C and 55-60% humidity... if you are outside of this range the bud can either rot or dry too quickly and lose some potency (since sugars did not make the transition and you can tell by the lack of smell)... if you stressed out a plant during bloom once she will need to be harvested a week later, stress her twice two weeks later... but you also lose quality.. how much depends on stress... if I had 3 stressful events in a bloom cycle I would start over.... and all the additives will not change the inherent quality of the genetics... the additives can enhance these qualities but they will not make Mexican swag into Vancouver bud ... IMHO no one should suffer through the aerogarden.. promix aka dirt is where its at


Comments

Hi Mark, My plants were droopy so I researched and ruled out possible problems. I was left with Magnesium deficiency. I bought CALMAG and put in 1 teaspoon per gallon. That was yesterday. How long till the red striping on the plant goes away and they start to perk up? 24 to 48 hours... use sm-90 to prevent problems... its a root wash... yu may have a host of issues when they droop.. its usually problems with roots 


Comments

I have two Indica dominant plants growing, both over 4 feet and are beginning to have quite a lot of white hairs. Now I know I'm still some time from harvesting but I'm wondering when buds will begin to appear. It's my first attempt. They do look healthy. thank you Joelle please consider reading the grow guide before attempting this.... in short, plants need to experience 12 hours of sleep in order to bloom, so your plants are probably not blooming

I HAVE STARTED to grow few plants for my personal use and i have had lights on 24/7 first time dont know if i will mess them up no... for veg 24/7 is as good as 18/6 (18 ON and 6 OFF)... but at times a plant can get overwhelmed by light (leafs will droop) and 18/6 is better ....to give them a break

Hi Mark, We are looking at changing our nutrients up as we just realized we are missing a few critical components. We have come across DNF Success In A Box at a very economical cost. Are you familiar with DNF? yes Are these good nutrients? yes I have compared it to the nutrient chart and feeding chart and it seems to contain everything necessary, but we just want to ensure DNF is a good product before changing things. I have used their stuff it works well... very consistent blend of A and B juice over the last ... 10 years? at least

Which is better HID sodium or LED? HID is best... LED lacks light penetration so plants can not be bigger then 1 foot... with HID 3 or 4 or 5 feet is ok

One of my plants I think is show me it's male all over the the top and the next set of nods look like little ball bags is this definitely male or could it be a Hermy either way if it's male I'll break it's neck by what do I do if it's a Hermy usually a hermie must die... if its a single ball it is not a male, it is a calix? ( a female bit)... if there is many balls its a male or hermie either way it must die

I'm looking into this for MS symptoms and don't know much about it. I saw a show on TV that suggested modern cannabis has been bred to overemphasize the "high" chemical and under-emphasize another chemical that moderates the high. This unnatural balance is supposed to be more dangerous. Can you tell me a seed/variety that would be more balanced (natural) as my main concern is not getting high.

My plants arbud whats yirbudse starting to show there sex dose this mean there in the pre flowering stage if not how will I know when the flowering stage start .

is it legal to sell marijuana pollen in canada? is there anywhere that sells pollen from particular strains? thanks!! its illegal if it tests for positive for THC and it is legal if it does not, but I am not aware of a anyone selling it in Canada

Just finished up with the AK47 (F-AF), 77 days from seed to harvest on balcony, just shocked at how easy this strain is. This strain could be grown on a friggin windowsill in antartica with decent results. For all those wanna-be growers this is the one for you. wow a positive review (kkkeeeevin?)


Comments

In your seed catalogue , you listed both finishing times for indoor and outdoor, but for the outdoor when it says "Harvest Month: 9" , does it mean it will be ready come September? or closer towards October ...I would be watching for the change in color at any pont from end of Sep to Early Oct... weather outdoors varies the end greatly especially if rain falls in that period... some chose to harvest early (end of Sep) and some wait till the end to get that extra weight ...

Hi Mark, I just harvested 3 ak47,3 northern lights, and 3 white widow. I let all flower for just over 8 weeks. The white widow seemed to yield very little, had a lot of popcorn buds and main cola's were very loose. All three strains(feminized) were grown under 1000 watts with the same nutes(botanicare ) but only the ak47's and northern lites did well. Do you have any idea why the white widow would have done so poorly? Thanks, appreciate your thoughts. seeds are notoriously unreliable for consistency .... clones is where its "at" taken from non feminized females... imo its just bad luck for you but that does not add insight ... mention this if you order again and get a free pack

My plants MISSED WATER CYCLE AND I FOUND A FLOWERING PLANT wilted to the ground at 45 days of flower. I watered it and it sprung right back up in hours. But now the white pistols are amber on half the plant and white on the other. Q: Will this stress my plant out enough to stop growing? [not watering a large indoor MJ plant till it wilts to the floor due to a timer issue]i watered it and it bounced back but does not look healthy. its a 50-50 thing and you may not know until you smoke the bud and its either good or not... no feeding other then the B1 or and Molasses 


Comments

Hi Mark I am having problems with new growth on my mothers turning woody and purplish. I read below you said this could be due to overfeeding. What percentage should I be feeding? Of the 5ml max? My veg box is 4'x2'x2.5' in height with 4@4' T5 HO. I have also recently repotted and cut them back. i have one shiskaberry that was bloomed over two years ago, harvested, regrown, and now produces cuttings like a champ, still in a 2-gallon pot, and the other 3 are NLSK, in 1L pots, and not doing as well. Thanks again, HD. 25% level of food is a standard number for leaching and or maintaining plants in heat over 29.9C.. if temp is over this number may as well just leach continuously or you run the risk of over feeding ....

WHAT if a seed plant has shows only one pollen sack about half way down the plant does that means its a male and should be pulled or is it some kind of freak on is it just one early one before the rest come? please help the question kill or not kill? if its just one I would not kill, it could be a hermie 


Comments

Mark, can you recommend a strain from your store which has little to no pungent smell if growing indoors. It is a concern to me Thanks. unfortunately no, the only thing that works is this and this .... they all have some level of smell and if you do not want smell you would have to grow it badly (and they will not smell) and for that pick any strain... am sure this is not what you want


Comments

okay so i moved my plants into thier outdoor spots yesterday and after planting them i noticed it was right beside a fire ant hill, the whole area is bad for them. will they eat my plants or be helpful keeping other bugs away? I do not know... with proper light would probably be ok, but with short light this is just another stress

Hi, i am 1.5 weeks into flower. I am growing from bag seed and have four plants that look good. Three the same height one a bit shorter. Fairly quickly into flowering ALL of the plants showed female, with clear pistils/hairs. 3 days ago two of the plants each developed 4-6 pod shaped things. I have spent hours on the internet and can't seem to figure out if they are hermies or just calyx. they are smaller than seed size and only appear near the flowers and on the joints near the flowers. There are none at the intersection of the main stem and the branches. There are more today, like a dozen plus per plant. I am guessing I have two hermies and should get rid of them? if possible manually remove each and every calyx but its probably harmless and not a hermie... but removing it won't harm the plant


Comments

I wonder if you have a list of doctors that will help with the government forms. no I have Common Variable Immunodefiency with complications.

Thank you Tracey there is no easy way but to meet a lot of doctors ... so called "doctor shopping", this is not a cynical answer, I mean it... just go from one doctor to the other and have them tell you what to do... one will sign just to get rid of you

The reason I am trying the fish weights on the plant is the concept of bending. Do you recommend it? NO..... bending YES but not with fish weight ..... use a bamboo stick (will not rot) and .... watch this... the point is to "support".. adding weight would be the opposite of that

Hi Mark, you have helped me in the past with advice in growing, but now i have a question regarding where i could begin to look for a Dr. that would sign my papers to become legal. I had a talk with my Family doctor, but said he did not feel comfortable singing my papers but did say he would be happy to refer me to a DR. that would. THAT THAT IS the way ... follow wherever your dr. tells you to go (pls.)...OR repeat from post above...there is no easy way but to meet a lot of doctors ... so called "doctor shopping", this is not a cynical answer, I mean it... just go from one doctor to the other and have them tell you what to do... one will sign just to get rid of you It sure is difficult in finding one, and i was wondering if you might be able to point me in the right direction. If you can that would be great, if not it's all good. Thanks and hats off to you for all the advice you give everyone on here !

Hey Mark, I purchased some seeds from the store 2 weeks back today, 1 pack of AK-47 and another pack of Kali Mist. Presently I have 3 AK and 2 Kali sprouted to a height of 3", the rest seem to be really slow, or duds. Now I really appreciate that you have a service to offer to so many cannibis lovers but presently I'm looking at only a 50% return on my purchase. Understandably I could live with an 70-80% but I find 50 is too low, can anything be done for this or am I S.O.L. I've read other postings where it says to bring in the packaging but the 2x3 envelope the Kali came in is long been disposed of and the small white pill/cream container from the AK has also been tossed.I will have to wait another few days to judge whether the last of the seeds are going to sprout but I thought to drop a line. Thanks for the informative site and the oppourtunity to post. just come and get a free pack(s) ... and/or call me to mail it which takes longer

Hey Mark. So I got busted and raided yesterday. I had few very small plants on my balcony. My landlord must have seen them last week while painting the roof. So two nights ago while I was visiting my infant son, I got a call from my landlord telling me that I have a leak in my apartment; it's an emergency and they have to go in. I agreed. But when I arrived at my home a few hours later, the police were outside my house. They said I'm under arrest, and that they're getting a warrant to go in my house. I had a few small vegging plants, clones that weren't rooted yet, and 8 very small plants flowering (yield would've been less than an oz). While in jail overnight, they got a warrant and my charge is "possession" and "production". Long story short, can I represent myself in court and just tell them that the flowering plants were for personal use, and the vegging plants were hemp (which I recall you telling me once when you worked at Happy Girl)? I don't know very much about law, though do have a university degree and feel that the warrant wasn't justified. I'm not a criminal and work full time. I don't believe there ever was a leak and that my landlord lied. I can't afford a lawyer though believe I would qualify for legal aid because I'm working poor. I developed PTSD after dealing with police..... but I will not give complicated legal advice on line, because there is no easy answers, the answer often depends on the region a county a town ... I learned the hard way that lawyers are gods... and they are worth the debt you should go into to avoid a guilty plea .... if you smoke all day chances are there is a medical reason for that and you should quickly find a doctor willing to back you up ... tell the crown you are looking for a doctor and you need time and find one

Will plants be more bushier if you attach fish weights to them, so they wont grow tall, but spead out to the sides, and produce more buds? the opposite... you should support each branch with a stick like tomatoes so the plant wont waste its energy growing the stem larger but rather spend this energy on making bud bigger and denser... while you are staking you can spread out the branches outwards and then support them with a stick, the idea being that the light will go inside the plant 


Comments

Well, I included the worm casting in my pro mix just on the top soil. I also moved my plants outside. So they will remain outside for the remainder of June, so I should have a nice harvest for the fourth of July?. My girls seem to really enjoy the flowering time in this warm Atlanta air. are you growing auto flowers?


Comments

hey mark I took some clones a while back and they seem to be doing ok but the stems are woody and some purple is this from over feeding or too much topping they are about 12 inches tall with anywhere from 10- 20 heads ... over feeding would be my first guess BUT also stress is a factor... like bad pH or root problems (bugs?) or are they root bound... leaching with low dosage of food is a fix all solution and the first thing to do ... mix 20% of their normal dosage f nutrients and feed them for 2 or 3 water cycles.... makes sure they dry out between cycles as watering to often would also make stems dark

Hello: When setting up my grow closet, would it be over kill to use a 1000w grow light in a "4ft wide X 4ft deep X 8 ft high" space (normally set up for a 400w grow light.) I am new to this Warmest Regards; al... unless you have minimum 350 CFM rated fan or more then NO (and are a bit more experienced since it is a good thing to have a 1000W on a 4x4 space but you need experience for that).. the heat in this room will be too much .... in winter it may be ok BUT you still would need one kick ass fan...

Hey Mark hope all is well and your enjoying the nice weather :) I have a question about ph levels. what Ph levels should be used in soil during flower and in bloom. Also if you dont mind, what ph levels should be used in flowering and bloom in hydro? Thanks again for the help now and in the past, cheers! range for veg is 6.0 to 6.8ph ... I keep at 6.5... in bloom acceptable range is 5.2 to 5.8ph... week 1, 2, 3 = 5.5ph .. week 4, 5, 6 = 5.2 technically.... but I still do 5.5... 5.5 til the end

Hi mark I planted blueberry skunk and afghani gold outside and was wondering how tall they get? outside 6 to 8 feet unpinched... pinched (topping so called) way under.. As well can I bring them inside and switch then to 12/12 so they start to flower and then put them outside again? no, because if you miss-time the difference between the cycle outside and inside then its all waste of time because they will simply adjust to whatever the outdoors light cycle is... and may end up stressed out which could ruin your year... so I would not do that unless you done it before or know someone who can guide you through it... otherwise don't do it.. Thanks


Comments

Hi Mark, I'm growing 3 strains i got from you and use bontanicare. How long into flowering should I begin using straight water to leach?...or when should I start using water only? I'm growing White Widow, ak47, northernlites. Many thanks, in short... never... alternate between high feeding and low feeding... like 80% of 30ml/G (pure blend pro normal dosage) and next time 20% of that... water by itself is ok because promix buffers the roots but I still prefer if you add minimal amounts of nutrients (like 20%) because it prevents many problems... like nutrient lock


Comments

Do you think Sweet Tooth fem autoflower is a good strain choice for outdoor growing in southern Ontairo for a beginner? no, feminized variety will be easier.. auto flower does what it wants and its hard for a beginner to "see" at what stage of development they are and thus give appropriate care... at least feminized behave consistently for everyone and you can get/ask help if need be..


Comments

I am a first time grower and i am looking for some advice. I picked up some Sweet Tooth feminized seeds and am starting to germinate them. I have already picked a spot for my outdoor garden and was wondering what i should do to the soil other than turning it, the forest soil looks very rich.2... there is so many angles to cover I dont know where to begin... call me and I can at least ask you some questions...


Comments

Hi Mark, I'm growing 3 strains i got from you and use bontanicare. How long into flowering should I begin using straight water to leach? leaching only applies to the last 2 weeks of bloom, week 7 (plain water is ok BUT read about flushing agents during this week) and 8 (plain water during this time), ..... read this but in essence during bloom I want you to alternate between "normal" feeding and light feeding, the reason I avoid plain water is because mixing even a little bit of any nutrients brings down the pH of water and ALL nutrients are actually pre-pHed for us, so the bottom line is that even mixing 10% of dosage makes the water slightly better then just plain water + low dose of nutrients actually leaches the roots better then plain water alone... so personally I see no use for plain water unless its the last week of bloom...or when should I start using water only? never I'm growing White Widow, ak47, northernlites. Many thanks, ...when I re-read my answers there is a lot to be confused about, .....try to read the site and ask again

Hey mark I was just wondering if you have ever tried final phase from advanced nutrients in pro mix and if you have how did you use this stuff its a standard flushing solution with a twist, the twist is that Advanced Nutrients wants you to pay them more for fancy marketing and shit... its meant to be used during the 2nd last week before harvest (90% its week 7) BUT you can use it in week 8 as well (which is till the end)... I start leaching at the beginning of week 7 with final flush or whatever brand I happen to have (or you can pay more for final phase) but in week 8 I use just water, plain water ph'ed to 5.5 (no flushing add-ons or anything)

Hi, from my knowledge, worm castings are a great all around soil amender and could be mixed anytime (except near the end of the lifecycle), bat guano is a very high potassium and phosphorus and would be better suited to be added in just prior (and throughout) the flowering period. In the veg cycle, the value of bat guano would be largely lost. note: I think you mean to feed castings/guano in form of a tea as oppose to pre-mixing into soil/promix.. please share more on this here if you want as I am not an expert on guano at all 


Comments

This is my first time growing, and my grow medium is Pro-mix. Do you think I should include 1/3 worm casting, or bat guano? indoors, I do not as I find that when you mix guano in it is difficult for a beginner to recognize potential issues.. like when and how much to feed with regular nutrients since the guano may already be doing a great job, or not and that's the problem, as a beginner you may be unable to tell, on the other hand if it works well you may end up not feeding the plants with nutrients at all BUT .... guano tends to be a try-and-see type of a nutrient for a intermediate grower, someone who already had a few crops with some basic nutrients (flora nova or pure blend pro is organic).... if you go outdoors mix at 1/10th


Comments

Hey Mark, it's me again. I have bought the same strand of seed 3 times in a row. The first time the temp wasn't kept right or conditions weren't grate but you were graceful enough to give me replacements, to which I am thankful. The second time, my little brother accidentally crushed them, so I had to get replacements to which I paid in full yet again. This is now the third try and two of the seeds (which I have been germing for 2 weeks) have broken their husks but have died when I tried to plant them, whilst the other 3 haven't even show their taproots. I know I have already ask for replacements, but my friends need seeds for themselves and I'm a little thin on cash. Do you think you can help me out? email me the address for mail ... mark at toronto420.com

Hey man third season getting my seeds here, have had great luck and learned a lot from growing. My garden is outdoors. curious to know what you think about starting the seeds (after germination) in one of those jiffy pellet technically jiffy is not the best since it has slightly wrong pH HOWEVER cannabis being a weed grows in it just swell... probably 75%-90% success rate mini-green houses or just stick em in pots. both methods work just fine, in fact most methods I find on the net work In the past it's been hit or miss with the pots, want to get the best success rate going seeing as I upgraded strains therefore have less of them because of budget. ...keep a mother plant and learn about clones, you'll never need seeds again... I sprout seeds by just placing them half an inch underneath the (wet) pro-mix and wait.. 90% rate ... if I place them in a cup of water and in the dark for 2 days I get 100% but then transferring the seeds after is a pain in the arse so I prefer the pro-mix method...


Comments

Is it to late to try to grow outdoors if i started in a couple days with a regular strain? no, there is time, the time to take plants outdoors is until the end of June (the latest) .... best around end of May If not what would be the best strain you carry for quick high yielding outdoors? Thanks


Comments

I know bloom period outdoors is late June, so if a plant harvests in late September, when do the buds typically start to flower and appear? late July but more often early August


Comments

i set up a small system. i have a 150w mh in the1.5ftx4ft mother clone room, and i have a 600w hps and a 400w hps in the 6ft x 6ft flowering room. i will have 16 plants flowering all the time adding and harvesting 4 every 2 weeks. using3 gal grow bags and organic nutes vegging for only 1 week . what kind of yield should i be aiming for every 2 weeks? I don't do math on the account of being stoned :-) .... but a 1000W combo light should produce 1.5 lbs of well dried bud + another pound of shake every 2 months with 16 plants... but how much will you get per plant per week per ? that depends on soooo many factors... even clones get stretchy they get tall some get short + your type of water, how well you adapt etc.. 


Comments

is the rule of thumb generally 1 gallon for each 1 foot of plant height? sounds about right, 5 G container should easily do a 5 foot plant but after its a problem   Or is it a half gallon for each foot of plant height? that would be pushing it for a beginner, but still doable by a determined fairly advanced grower... just not healthy for the plant itself


Comments

I just transferred my clones to bigger pots. I should have done it 2 weeks ago, but i couldn't do to some circumstances. Its been two days since, and they are still droppy. My question is , are they still ok and if not what can i do about it. ? what light type how far from light from what light did they come from .... droopiness if often when you transfer from weak light to strong light, best to keep strong light far away (3 or 4 feet) for 24 hours before dropping it down on them... or overfeeding (doubt that)... generic boring B1 is best and helps (when they dry out) or if you have some cash cannazym and/or rizotonic


Comments

I just bought your seeds from Sublime cafe, I am a seasoned grower and not one germinated. Do you have any sort of return policy or exchange for this sort of thing? thanks! bring back the packaging they came with and / or seeds... there is a $10 restocking fee .... 


Comments

In my experience, the only difference when leaving the lights off near the end is that all the nutrients ozmotically (not sure if this is the right term but i'ma go with it) get brought down to the soil level and are no longer present in the plant. this all changes when the lights go back on. if you wanted to sqweek out more resin the last 2-3 when you are flushing is when to do this changing your photo period from 12/12 to 10/14 and then 8/16 over two or three week will produce more resin ( the plant is thinking the end is coming and trying to protect its self)


Comments

@ jason: RE outdoor. Outdoor has MANY un-calculate-able variables. Cloud cover, Rain, lack of rain, BUGS!! other pests and predators. THINGS TO BE CONSIDERS: how much room does the roots have? the more the more yield. How big the plant is before you put it in the ground also effects end yield. Organic vs chem food vs no food.. the breeder will usually always have a better idea of the outside yield then the distributor. You also have to take into account where globally the breeder is. The strain you are sowing might not do that well outside in your global location.

Hi Mark, I recently received my MMAR and am allowed to grow my own medicine. I live in Windsor, Ontario and I don't have a clue where I'm going to get clones.

I have a follow up question to my "seed selection" question from last week. My basement flowering space is 5' x 5' (7' high). Currently i have four plants in the room in 5 gallon planters. top them as soon as you can then wait a week at least before going into bloom (when the plants are like 1 or 1.5 feet tall) I use a 1000 HPS bulb in a large umbrella type reflector. All sides are covered with the white plastic. My question is what would be the optimal number of plants i could grow with my current set up? Thanks again say you start with 5 feminized seeds and are luck to have 5 plants and they are female so that would work for me in this space.... say you have 10 non feminized which after sexing and potential failures would wither down to 4 or 5 females (lots of hassle)..... say you get unlimited clones from planet x and in that case I would get 50 on a hydro table veg for 2 days then start bloom ...... there are many scenarios... once the plants reach 1 foot they tent to grow really fast so lets say you are starting with 5 females in this space and after they all reach 1 foot (2 weeks from clones, 4 weeks from seeds) one dies... it will take the remaining 4 plants may be a week to overgrow the remaining space so a week is not that much.... imaging starting with 10 in this space ... you could easily kill off 3 or 4 without loosing much time since the rest will grow like weeds (eh eh) .... the point is to have a small and bushy plants... see topping, this makes them bushy... see pinching, this is for when they get too tall in this space like if you can not move the reflector up anymore situations only....

With current weather trends, when would you recommend to throw some pre-vegged clones outdoor? word on the streets is that its a bit of an early summer however for unattended clones/plants to survive through the night it is not time yet... if you can remove them indoors (sometimes at least) then you can keep them outdoors but if not then wait for may 20th which is the earliest I can say they will all survive also do you have any experience with outdoor growing? some and I don't claim here I know all about outdoors and there are better forums for this... in general its easy when its a great summer with regular rain and its absolute disaster when its too hot or too dry or too wet... so I gave it up for indoors for quality control and is there enough time in the southern Ontario to allow a 8-9 week strain finish? yes, summer is not the same bloom calculation as indoors, moon cycles and other interruptions make it longer outdoors... note: all the strains we have did great outdoors since they are bread outdoors often but not always... but in 90% of cases what kills them is the environment and not the strain... the farther into the wild you put them and less you look after them the more you need a specific seed for the type of environment (like weather and animals)... at this point only summertime/buddha would fit and Roseta Stone for feminized do well in the wild wild wild .... or somewhere else look for Freezland for Northern Ontario or Quebec, outdoors fav for that region, since I don't have it.

Mark keep up the good work some assholes don't understand you have a life. This page has helped me out so many times and I check every week still. I have become a better grower with your help and there are so many things still to learn THANK YOU.Got a question gave a friend some clones and he was wondering at what time will they start to flower out side and what should he feed them he knows nothing and I have never done an outdoor grow I am about 3 hours south of TO veg period outdoors is from mid-may to june 20th... bloom is from June 20th until harvest in late September (hopefully) or early October (if shitty weather) .... re: feeding - it depends on how difficult you/him want to make your life.... for the veg period get Pure Blend Pro (for Veg) or Flora Nova (for Veg) and feed at full dosage every second watering .... and water in between ... for the bloom period get the same brand but for bloom and do the same until early September, afterwards plain water .... the bigger the pot (planter) the better and still get pro-mix BX or HP .. NO regular soil please..... if you want to make it really complicated see this and get all or some of these products.... if you are not chronic don't bother you wont know the difference.... but if you are chronic (i.e. you wake and bake daily) do read about all that stuff

Hey, I picked up from seeds from you on 420. Growing indoors. I got 5 feminized seeds. Only 2 made it. 2 never germinated and one failed to thrive. Just wondering since these damn guys aren't cheap. If I bring u back The two that didn't germinate will u replace them? yes Bubblegum kush

What do you do about buds that are fox tailing or crowning? Apparantly it's common in sativas and they don't stop growing? My NL hVe been flowering for 11 weeks now and new white hairs are poppin up everyday and the plant is growing everyday(foxtail) .. How do I determine havest time.. The foxtails put out clear trichs .. And I believe if I wait for those to turn cloudy, more foxtails will grow with clear trichs.. Not sure what to do.., the extra yield is nice but how long is too long to leave them? Also is it common for plants to hermie from long flowering periods ? if you go pass the prime time of harvest there is a chance they will stress and make the high bad, but hermie takes weeks of stress and that stress would have to have happened before the week 4 of bloom at least ..... so in short hermie: NO  I've read plants will try to pollinate themselves as a last resort. I really ever seen that before At 11 week I had 6-7 plants hermie all from the same mother.. Either that mother put out Hermies or the plants were done? when you bloom a mother (hermie can not happen in veg) you are blooming an old plant... it can hermie due to age i guess but there must be other stress factors like high temps or over crowding or something to cause a plant to hermie itself Last question, Ive read some northern lights don't change trichome colors? Do you know anything about this ? Because I don't see any amber trichs on my plants yet pistils have reversed and calyxes are swollen , with an overall "ripe" appearance but no amber trichomes PERSONALLY I WOULD CUT, you described enough factors for readiness to make it "ready".....but the only reliable way to determine readiness is to get 16x magnifying glass (or better) and see if the trichones/crystals are milky... if milky harvest... if clear/transparent not ready yet.. the hair method can fool you ... with Northern Lights, Chemo or Ice I don't look at hair at all...  another method is to quickly dry a bud and smoke it... if you want to smoke another joint 10 minutes right after then its not ready... high should last half hour at least

I have a small basement grow room divided into 2 sections (Veg and flower). Four plants per room under 1000 watts each (MH for veg, HPS for flower) Ceiling height is just under 7 feet so maximum plant height from the floor is around 4 feet. My question is on which seeds would be the best. I'm looking for a euphoric energetic high as opposed to a stoned couch high. feminized Kali Mist (the only one with enough sativa genes in it to make it an UP high.... non-feminized would be .. anything with Buddha in it BUT you need to pick the correct phenotype) From what i've read a sativa would work best, however i hear they grow quite tall. very true see this and do that 2 or 3 times in veg....  Would a sativa/indica blend be a better option for me as i'm limited in growing height? I'm more concerned with the "high" i'm looking for as opposed to plant yield. that is exactly the opposite of what you asked in the first part .... its really tricky to get that "blend" ....Jack Herer is both short bushy and easy + has enough sativa to make an interesting smoke ... better then just couch lock Any suggestions on seed choice? Thanks.


Comments

Auto white dwarf or auto ak47 for a beginer planting outside in tdot? In terms of yield, how easy it is to grow and quality. I DO NOT RECOMMEND any auto flowers for beginners.... the auto flower is designed for outdoors BUT only when you are late in the season like late June or even mid July.... otherwise you should stick to a regular feminized variety.. you will get more and the smoke will be better .... buuuut AK-47 is better

is your mango strain similar to the kc brains mango or your own mix no... the essence of smell is there but they look like freaking different plants

how is it possible that by starting to PH vs not bothering before just using Promix...has made my yield less...a lot less always got the 1 pound per 1000w...now phing I get 1/2 pound per 1000w NO nothing else has changed AT ALL ...what s up?>?? please do not ask if I am using it right... unless you tell me the way you work with PH-down its difficult to answer your question.... I saw only a 10% increase in yield when I ph the water because pro-mix actually does a pretty good job at correcting the pH.... so I am just as puzzled as you.... I grew for ... 10? years with never-pH-ing the water and I did just swell so ... in your case just go back to the old method

what is this summertime buddha ? cant seem to find any thing about this strain. can you let me know what im dealing with here, like whats it crossed with. thanks in advance. its an old strain I bred may be 10 years ago... its from a summertime female (local indica) and buddha male (african sativa) .... 8 weeks bloom.. easy and good for indoor and outdoor... more of a sativa then indica 


Comments

Mark...what are your thoughts about using 4 4' foot T-5 bulbs 2 with 6500k and 2 with 2700k to give you full spectrum lighting. I have a small space 6'x6'x7' will this setup do well for the whole gro and bloom stages. What sort of yield could I expect!? (2 Plants) Thanks may be 6 ounces... the lights work so long as the plants are triggered to bloom at or below 1 foots in height... bigger plants simply do NOT yield more as the light is just too weak to penetrate the canopy more then a foot into it .... so yeah with this space T5s will do fine

> TO MATT I can answer half your question, the half concerning AG. Last summer i bought 10 seeds from Mark. This is a final breakdown of those results grown outdoors and easily attended to. Of the ten seeds eight germinated. Eventually of those 8. 1- Failed to thrive 4- Were males, and were chopped down pre-pollenation. 3- Were females and enjoyed a full season in the sun. Plants were harvested in mid October ( the 8th ). Harvest Breakdown: 6.4 ounces manicured bud. 22 ounces of shake,flowertops,manicured budshake. The 22 ounces of shake produced an additional 31 grams of weed oil. Hope this helps a bit. Plants were grown in promix pertalized holes outdoors, southern exposure.


Comments

Hi Mark, I recently picked up some blueberry skunk and afghani gold seeds. From what I saw in the catalogue they look sick. I am planning to plant them outside and was wondering if that is a good idea? If it is what kind of yield should I expect (rough estimate). Thanks If all works out I will definitely pick up some more seeds from you next summer! outdoors is healthier cause the roots get more space and the environment is better if you are a begginner .... so yes

Hey boss, I finally freed up my busy schedule and am heading downtown today (on 4/20 yay!!) to hopefully get those replacement seeds you graciously offered before. Please excuse to amount of time it took me to post let alone grab, this economy is really harsh for 9 to 5ers. But I hope to see you today or soon, all the best! we give them fairly liberally if you are not abusing the warranty

Has the breeder or have you gotten any feed back on your femmed northern lights seeds? Im at 9 weeks flowering and Im noticing that my plants are still covered in white hairs, 50/50 clear/cloudy trichomes and still continuing to grow . The plants are showing a lot of sativa traits and it looks like the plants might go for another 2-3 weeks. Is this common for the seeds to be inconsistent with what the believe genetics are? I did a small sog grow with 9 NL mothers and only about 20% of the clones actually showed the indica traits. The indica-like plants are ready to harvest but they seem to be very low yielders which isnt favourable to keep the mother, leaving me with long flowering mothers. i grew this plant and after the end of week 8 I chop whether she shows dark hairs or not... trichones were milky and that is all I need to harvest.... if you just go by hair it may be deceiving... as a note .. yes you can clone the feminized varieties but you will get healthier mothers with F1 non-feminized breeds.. feminized contain some genetics from a hermaphroditic genes 


Comments

I bought some G13 seeds from your store and haven't had any luck with germinating even one. My skunk seeds are all florishing but not the g13. Is there a reason for them to take longer to germ or is there something wrong with the seeds? too many reasons to guess that's why we just replace them ..... either send me an email with address to mail it (free) or come by the store ($10)


Comments

What are your opinions on leaving the plants in darkness for an extended period before harvesting to increase trichome production? I see NO results ... but the 2 ingredients responsible for crystals production is "gold" and "black" ... any hydro store stocks this ... to be added as described on the bottles...   And should the soil be wet or dry before harvesting? Does it even matter? nope

First of all, I will introduce myself. My name is Maya van Vliet and I am a dutch student at the University of Applied sciences in Amsterdam. I am currently writing my dissertation. The subject of my dissertation is the market for medicinal marijuana worldwide. Canada is currently looking into changing rules and regulations which will enable the market for medicinal marijuana to turn into a competitive market in which several 'big' providers will step up. This will be big step for the acceptance of marijuana as a medicine worldwide. I am gathering as much as information as possible on the subject and I would like to contact stakeholders to see what their opinion is on this change. I would be really grateful to anyone who could provide me with information of any kind, or people who would like to share their opinion about the subject. Thank you in advance, Maya van Vliet I wish you well... but I'll pass

Mycorrhizal fungi are present in natural soils outdoors, and form a symbotic relationship with a plants roots. The fungi attach to the roots and help to breakdown debris into a form more readily taken up by plants, and adjusts the pH in the root zone. The branching nature of mycorrhizal filaments allows it to greatly increase the surface area of a plant's root systems. I have experience with powered applications that were blended into the soil before planting, for indoor use. It takes a while to inoculate the soil, although it is naturally present outdoors, it needs to be input as earlier as possible. I have definitely seen a difference between a grow with and without mycorrihzal, all other factors remaining roughly constant. I can't say how it would work out doors tho. I have the feeling it wouldn't do anything good compost, sunlight, and water could do. good to know... i believe the pro-mix BX or HP both advertise they contain this ingredient....

The kush strain I'm asking about is Vanilla Kush from Barney's Farm. bad yielder... but its kush


Comments

I know yield is difficult to predict, but say the plants are fed correctly with the right amount of water, the typical plant outdoors will yield around a pound. How does this compare to kush strains? half of that if not less And i read earlier that you said no watering is necessary if its close to a water source, how close would you say? 3 feet above the water line .... often this means something like few meters away from any body of water Thanks alot!


Comments

What npk numbers do you recommend for soil? pure blend pro line of food is the best imo Which promix product do you prefer? pro-mix BX or HP


Comments

I ph the water/nuites to 6.2 for both veg and bloom. What do you suggest the ph of water and nuites (I'm using botanicare) be? Thanks my belief is that if something is working for you you should continue doing it... but I keep my pH at 6.5 in veg and 5.5 in bloom (using botanicare but also other stuff)... but I know friends who firmly believe in 6.5 for veg and bloom (I disagree) and their crops is great still...

Hi Mark. I got my licenses (pink papers) the middle of December and was wondering if you had any idea when I could expect to receive my card. thanks. never, pink papers only... that's what HC told me at least


Comments

Hi Mark, I use well water that has a ph of 8.2. If I use promix will I have to ph the water because it has a higher ph than city tap water? Technically pro-mix should self adjust the ph HOWEVER I would not trust this "feature" of promix .... it is best to learn to adjust pH manually with a proper electronic pen .... not the strips as they are inaccurate... promix is a good buffer for bad water but if you want the the type of quality cannabis you think you want, you better pH the water... otherwise your crops will be mediocre... average... good just not spectacular...

Sorry man, I thought I could come by the end of the week but my schedule is too hectic to make it downtown. I really appriate what your doing for me though, and if it's alright, I'd like to get them next week. Sorry again for the inconvience. All the best!


Comments

You said earlier that kush strains won`t do well outdoors, why is this? kush yield indoors already sucks and its somewhat worst out-doors ... as outdoors you want a giant plant and kush just won't be giant unless you start off really early... kush also is not too resistant to bugs or molds or rains or such.... but if you grow it on the balcony or something and you can tent to it it will do just fine... but don't expect a good healthy yield if you dump it on the edge of the forest... 


Comments

What are your thoughts about supplementing a 600W HPS with 6500k (blue spectrum) CFL's for a mixed spectrum? Helps? Yes.. can I tell you it's worth the cost? No .... but there is some benefit I'm sure and if I already had a spare light I'm sure I would use it on some plant that is not at its best or to help it recover or something, but I would not go out of my way to spend money on this bulb because I would not expect to actually measure any increase in yield.... Or would it be better to use 2700K CFL's for extra supplemental lighting during flowering. and for your advertised products, would an 8 week flowering strain take approx 8 weeks from the day you flip to 12/12 is the only set in stone period with these plants... once you switch to 12/12 aka Bloom, you WILL finish because they is no way to switch back and in the end they are dead anyways (bloom culminates in death for them)....  or when they show sex? they show sex in the 2nd week of bloom... something like 14th day 4sure

Is it possible to over dry marijuana can over drying affect the quality quality is an allusive word, super dry or dank still gets you high... over dry means 0% humidity so you can not have less... but yes, some moisture is needed to maintain proper storage, best would be to keep it at 55% humidity and about 15 to 18C for curing and then jars in fridge for storage

I am thinking of doing small outdoor grow in a corn field I have access to. I plan on picking a strain and taking a few clones and vegging them for about two weeks before putting them outside after the last frost. I just have a small problem picking a strain, what would you recommend for an outdoor grow in Ontario, closer to the Hamilton region. I am looking for a strain: -that isnt difficult to grow(forgiving for beginner growers) -one that can produce a larger yield without sacrificing too much quality. -A strain that will finish in time, the corn is for feed so it will be harvested a little bit later. What would you personally recommend that would fit the criteria for an outdoor grow? Also I have your feminized northern lights (rare earth seeds) I plan on using but I was thinking of having a bit of selection.. how well do you think the northern lights will hold up in the outdoor Thanks, all the seeds will do well outdoors other then the following 1. anything with KUSH in name, bad for yield, bad for cloning, bad for outdoors 2. anything with FOR OUTDOORS ONLY, like rosetta stone, reason is that they get upwards of 12, 14? feet and this may be more then the corn field, if I'm right then you will end up with this plant sticking out, big no-no... if I'm wrong and corn gets this tall then ignore it and then you may actually want those seeds.... in general all seeds will grow well outdoors (its weed after all) aside from the Kush strains... all white widows, northern lights, skunks etc do well outdoors... just some get taller then others

Hey Mark, I'm probably sure you've heard this kind of thing before, but my seeds (lowryder AK-47, rare earth seeds) won't sprout and its been close to a month and a half since I bought them from you. I germed them successfully, not letting the taproot get too long (1/4 inch) and put them in peat pellats. Now I'm not blaming you, if anything its my fault because I'm new to this whole grow thing. I opened the peat pellats yesterday to check to see if they're alive, and indeed they are, atleast the taproot is still there. But there was no growth what so ever. There was one pellat with kind of a sticky web like substance around the seed, but no root growth or any evidence of the seed breaking and such. I was just meaning to ask you, should I keep growing them, or should I get replacements? If I could bring them in and maybe you had a look, could anything be done? peat pellets have incorrect pH levels for cannabis.. I know I know a lot of people use them successfully .. because they also religiously pre-pH their water... in promix you can chose not to pH the water and they will live fine, when you pH they do better... in peat pellets you start off with wrong pH and no buffer... the roots are stunted and wont grow for another month if ever... I would get new seeds.. I can offer you 50% off ... mention this to staff at sublime, they will call me

Hi Mark, Ron again, i have a strange story to tell and a few questions. So two and a half weeks ago i put 10 seeds to germinate (5SB and 5G13). I think the temperature in my room wasn't ideal so it took about 5 days for SOME of the seeds to crack not even sprout just crack, so like you told me when i saw you, i put them in promix and put them under the fluorescent light. After a few days 4 of them sprouted nicely but the rest were taking a bit longer. I checked the rest everyday and saw the seeds were starting to crack and were close to sprouting...all but one, one seed did not change at all. So everything was going well until last Wednesday I came home and the 4 seedlings were growing and doing well... when i checked the rest of the cups... THE SEEDS WERE GONE!!! Out of the 6 cups with seeds, 2 cups i found the seed cracked open with nothing inside and no trace of root or plant, as for the other 4 cups... the seeds had DISAPPEARED!!! It boggled my mind, i had no clue what could have done this. The only pest i know of in my house are mice...so i googled it and apparently they do enjoy eating seeds and can jump pretty high. I assumed it was mice... What do you think?? Have you heard this happen to anyone else?? So now, I'm stuck with 1 SB and 3 G13... what chance do i have of getting a female now? K, now grow room question...it can sure happen.. not just mice... cockroaches apparently too..  My temperature is a bit high, it levels out at 35C and 3 feet below the light is a couple degrees cooler, but I'm sure on hot days it will increase. I have a 8"inch fan circulating the air, and a 75CFM fan. Other than air conditioning, are there any other (cheaper) ways to cool down my closet? you need to ventilate to outside with an inline fan of ..lets say 200 CFM (up to 1000W light) and bring in fresh air with a ..say.. 150 CFM fan.. this way you still have negative pressure to contain smell inside and get heat out and get cold air in... in the middle of summer this wont work at all as its too hot... and you need an A/C... BTW growing at 30 to 35C make for a very very poor yield as the plants can not process food at these temperatures, consequently they overfeed at regular levels of food, consequently you need to feed far less, consequently they end up fluffy... I read on a forum one guy put Frozen (gallon bottle) water in the closet and it helped bring down the temperature. hell whatever works, if you can not install proper ventilation the only way is to get a bunch of oscillating fans, position them so the whole apartment/space is your ventilation, then open a window in another room and try to play with them to bring the temps down in the whole place Does this in fact help? Any suggestions? What is the maximum temperature the plants can grow under? BELOW 31C.. 30C really The higher i put the light the lower the temperature would be where the plant is, is it okay to keep the light (400w) more than 2 feet away from the plant? with your temps YOU MUST but its a compromise as the plants get less lumens Thanks very much!


Comments

I am going to start growing outdoors next month and I have a plant about a foot tall indoors, should i take clones from it now (Mar 24th) so they are ready to be put outside later? thanks yes, in short... is it feminized? do you know its a female?.... you can take clones pretty much once every two weeks or so ... if you dont want to take clones then try this to bush her out before outdoors... you can do that ONCE or twice, two weeks apart


Comments

how do i go about getting replacement seeds? the ones i bought(ww-xxx) sprouted and died after two weeks of germ. i am using miracle grow seed starter 0.0,0.5,0.0 with no nutes. i have only watered them once with 1 litre of water each. in 2 1/2 gallon plastic pot the type of soil you are using has incorrect pH for cannabis, and especially miracle grow brand is not mean for our stuff.... that is why I speak of promix in the grow guide ... you can get them replaced just because but remember that warranty means that they sprout not .. sprout, live for a while and then die... for replacements: if you came through the store go back there if though the online email me...

If the harvest date is late September does And the flowering period is 8 weeks does that mean they will start to flower in August?

When growing outdoors how much water is needed? is a few mm of precipitation everyday sufficient or will they need to be soaked say every other week? I'm using time released nuts that require feeding every 3-5 weeks. Thanks for the help! IF the plants have some access to underground water (close to a lake or a stream) then you need not water ever ... but like everything else most plants without direct access to a water table need a weekly watering .... the nutrients you want to use depend on rain fall and ... this year will have no rain so I'm told by the wise old growers...

Hey Mark, I have my papers signed by a doctor. but, now my problem is finding a landlord to sign my papers so i can submit them. I'm not sure what i should do. how do i grow my medicine if NO landlord will sign off on it? Do i need a landlord to sign off .. or am i missing something? have any suggestions? this is a huge problem.... if you receive your license while you are already living in a particular place then you do NOT need landlords permission (but you will have a pissed off landlord and you probably need a lawyer to make that happen in realty) BUT if you already have a license and move to a new place you MUST inform the landlord.... the end result is that most people end up not growing .... because without the F form you can not start

@ josh http://www.toronto420.com/how_to_obtain_legal_cannabis_in_canada.html first step is finding an open minded doctor., I will you look, I'm still looking. you can side step this by getting a referral to a specialist in the field of illnesses you are suffering from, then it is based on that specialists merit. you no longer need your family doctor to sign if you can get a specialist signature (also be AWARE not all specialists are accepted there are stipulations) @ BUD, from what i know about pro mix, BX has mycrozia for root health and the HP is highly pours (hence HP) other then that don't think much changes. as far as yield wise you might see 1/2-3/4 of the yield you get out of your 12' pales if you switched to smaller pots, but you can also fit more plants.. pro and con game. also there is a whole thing at the beginning of this page about Hamilton Club helping people get a license


Comments

I have been growing in Promix HP in 12" pots and have been considering using 8" pots with Promix BX will that cause production to decrease? ...the plants will not get as big... overall it may be a 10% loss of yield... not quality, just yield

How u doin my question i have is whats my first step in trying to get medical marijuana.. Do i just go talk to my family doctor ..

Hi Mark, Ron again, thanks for your response to my last question. I have a 400w light in my closet and I installed a 75CFM bathroom fan for ventilation. should work ALSO, i have another area in my room (like a cupboard) that is H:2.5ft,L:3.5ft W: 2.5ft, with a 36" fluorescent light (two mini-T5 lamps). I was thinking of using this cupboard space to start the seedlings in 12oz SOLO cups. And also i was hoping to use this space to keep a couple mother plants. Are these good ideas? everything up to the "mother plant" is good....problem is that plants will easily overgrow this tiny cupboard of yours and it may be exceedingly difficult to actually maintain healthy mother... height is the issue here... I am not saying that it can not be done just saying its gonna be hard... mothers need to be at least 2 feat tall to be happy... and you just don't have that space.... You said i should start 10 non-feminized seeds assuming 5 will be killed (males). My closet is not big enough to hold 10 pots...How can I discover the sex of my plants before i pot them ALL in 8" pots? start with 4 or 6... you need 1 female .. just 1  Can i keep them in the SOLO cups until they show sex? yes, I keep some plants in small cups for months at a time... pic one and pic two  Should i take a clone while they are still in the SOLO cups.. definitely and bloom the clones to find the sex yes, then only pot the females? yes Also, Under the Cloning section of the guide, you say "place dome over the clones" what is this dome? the plastic transparent humidity cover for the plants i.e. dome... used for only 24 to 48 hours after cloning Thank you for help once again, don't know what I'd do without you and this site the first time for you is to use the 400W light/space only to get mother plants going but once you get them .. you do not technically need to keep mother plants at all... here is how it works.... you have saaaay 10 (or 5) female plants which you place in 8 or 6 or 10 inch pots under 400W.. and let them get saay 1 foot tall.... then you take 1 clone off of each female and root under the T5s .... as you start blooming your 400W closet you are at the same time vegging replacements under the smaller closet... let me know if its not clear

I started my seeds and put them in beer sized cups.. what pot sizes and how many transfers are needed? one transfer, from small  beer cup to big pot ... usually from beer cup to a so-called 5 gallon pot or sometimes called an 8" pot (8 inches in diameter) .... you could go smaller to 6 inch / 3 G pots if you want for 400/600W lights.. but more space means more yield...  also at what points should they be transferred. I do it when they are about 2 or 3 times bigger in height then the pot/beer cup ... you could get the plant to be 4 times bigger then the cup before they "suffer" from being root bound...

I am new to growing and am currently in the process of starting up my first grow closet. I had purchased a 150w hps sunlight lamp system from a friend and after reading the grow guide (which is very informative I might add) I'm now wondering if it insufficient.. I'm only looking to produce 4 plants. Would this lamp do or should I get another of the same kind? more wattage gives you more yield in the end BUT ... first simply go through at least 1 cycle with this (150) light even if its just to learn the basics... of course you can always get bigger light later BUT anything more then 400W needs proper ventilation.... and until you work out the space you may or may not be able to fit the 400W... 150W gives about half (or less) yield then a 400W... Also, regarding seeds, if I purchase feminized seeds and grow them, will I be able to continue to cycle these plants and harvest them numerous times? no, feminized or not feminized cannabis can not re re-cycled... the end of bloom (as in harvest) means the plant is dead..... I mean you could re-veg the plant BUT it will take 2 or 3 months and in a mean time its faster to start new seeds.... plus I do not recommend re-vegging feminized plants as they will turn hermaphroditic... the only way to be fully independent is to have a separate veg room and bloom room... you keep 1 or 2 mother plants under (lets say) the 150W where you take clones and veg clones... once few inches high take them over to the bloom room (say 400W)... but if you can not have 2 rooms then you are somewhat stuck with buying feminized seeds for each cycle  If so how long will they last with proper care taken? a mother plant wont last more then 1 year (realistically)

If Im moving into an apartment and I already have a mmar license do I need permission to grow in the place I move into? unfortunately YES  Im trying to do the right thing and do everything by the book but it seems so confusing on what to do. Is there anything I should know or any advice? thanks. P.S I only have a small grow tent with 10 plants and 1 light its a very small and simple setup. nothing fancy. IF you get new license while you are already living in a particular place then you do not need to sign the "consent of landlord form".... but if you are moving into a new place and you already have a licenses then you need consent of landlord to grow.... its not easy to understand the forms indeed... my take on this is as follows: BE HONEST and look for a landlord who smokes weed... out of 4 landlords I contact 3 are ok with it... do not say anything on the phone... show the license in person only after you talk to them first... look for a landlord/owner and not a landlord ONLY

Why is your website title "Toronto420 Seen Bank"? .....no particular reason... 420 is a euphemism for cannabis

RE: curing, i've had great success with Brown paper bags, (lcbo style) but it requires a bit more climate control then mason jar and burping... @ ron, I would think 400w would be the max for that area unless your are able to spend some serious loot on a ventilation system, I would probably opt for a 250 MH or a pair of 150 HPS's in that space. also a nicely veged mature plant at the ned of bloom can need about a foot square in those spaces so i wouldn't try to do more then 4-5 plants if i were you. good answer


Comments

my timer failed and my plants got to much light in bloom what effect will this cause to the plants if its less then half hour then its not a big deal... if its more, then 12 hours then they most likely reverted to veg (never 100% sure as each strain deals with this a bit differently)... which means that it will take them a week to return to bloom cycle... you lose a week in bloom so your bloom cycle has to be 1 week longer IF NOT 2 WEEKS .. just in case... if its more then 24 hours I would kill the crop... smoke will suck


Comments

Hi, I have never grown any plants before but would like to attempt to grow a few now in my closet. I know you suggested the minimum space should be 3ft x 3ft. I just measured my closet and the dimensions are: H-9ft, L-3ft, W-2.3ft Can i still use this space to grow? its do-able... up to a 400W light ... but more realistically a 250W HID.. or any kind of fluorescent lights but the yield on those isn't too great ... If so, what do you suggest is the maximum number of plants i attempt to grow? start with 10 if not feminized, assuming 5 males will be killed later... and 5 if feminized since they are all females... Also, I remember reading the more powerful lights you have the better when it comes to yield yes.. so any HID light will yield more then a fluorescent type of light (a 400W fluorescent is far weaker then 400W HID)... and let's say a 400W HID will yield more then 250W HID... anything above 400W REQUIRES ventilation... anything below 400W can be done ghetto style.. as in .. no dedicated ventilation... if my grow space is in fact doable, should i purchase a 400w HPS without ventilation its ok for winter, spring and autumn but not summer unless this room has some kind of A/C  or 600w NO ventilation to exhaust the heat created, then it can not be done... just too much heat ? Thanks for your time and help, i appreciate it very much.

out of 5 seeds (ww-xxx), one germed and died why? after two inches of growth, less than a week .started 2 more germs but never sprouted, now im left with 2 seeds, what to do? or can i get my seeds replaced? using cfl light 42 watt and oscillating fan, enclosed box 2ft width x 2ft length x 4 ft height. you can get a pack for free ... what type of soil? sound like a bad case of pH


Comments

are there any other curing methods besides putting in mason jars after drying? you make it sound so simple ... but no, not that I know of


Comments

Why do my plants when their about 2 inches high dry in the stalk about about 1 inch above ground and then die. ...I would need to know more about the "how you do stuff".. like dome? when? how long?.. medium? pH-ing? water.. guessing here that there is too much humidity for this type of problem to happen.. so your dome must be ON them too long...


Comments

The thing is I wanted to start them off in mid April, so they wont be able to go outside till around Late May or early June. Would the 2 32watt T8 fluorescent lights be sufficient enough for 1 month of growth before taking outside? 32 W is the absolute minimum .... but I guess they will be fine for a month but not more... after that plants will stretch for sure..  thanks alot for the help!


Comments

Hey Mark, I was wondering what the best way to start of my medi grow would be. I usually start the seedlings out under 2 32w T8s for around 2-3 weeks. What should I do next that wont effect my electricity bill too much? i was thinking a 450 ?? you mean a 400W ... there are 450? watt MH light with a reflector for 2 weeks before bringing them outside. What do you think is the best money saving solution before i bring them outdoors. why not just skip the MH and take them outside from under the T8s? they would need to be under an indirect* sunlight for a 24 hours before being exposed to full sun *(like in a shade)... but that's it


Comments

Wich way too go more of Red Spectrum is best for bloom. Or more of Blue Spectrum is best for veg When talking about 400wHPS??? your first light should always be a Metal Halide which is a blue light


Comments

hello mark when you say there are other clubs around toronto are you referring to compassion clinics..or compassion clinics that need a MMAR (what are the clinics thank your talking about)...right now i just cant CAN NOT afford to pay 336 a ounce.... I suppose if you are broke broke and you have MMAR I would take you (I'm not convenient, just cheaper)... but if you want less then an ounce at a time.... section 56, calm, mmc, tcc ...  as listed on my front page


Comments

So there is no medical permit needed to purchase seeds. Sry for being so dumb I just dnt know the laws.


Comments

I just moved into the area and will be here for a little over a year I know nothing of cannabis seed laws what does it take to actually purchase seeds here in the city of Toronto? they become illegal when you sprout them

To all the wankers complaining about HappyGirls response time. Take a look at his blog pics, He might have this business but he has ALOT to take care of to keep this business running. Maintaining a redundant question forum usually isn't high on priorities. 98% of these issues have been asked before, and answered before. I personally had this same fleeting thought until i started reading beyond the first forum window ;) Now on to My personal question, Are you still on last seasons NL5 x S1 seed crop? found a killer pheno, then my cat ate it... :( regardless if you don't have the last crop still do you use the same parents to restock your seed stash? it all starts from original seeds .. each time.. ie. start 10 seeds of mom  + seeds of dad ..choose best phenotype, bloom those only ... gets me this batch of seeds etc.. it can get very complicated thus making sure the same pheno is in the odds? so to speak anyway...new once just came but not re-stocked yet, everyone who got seeds until early Jan got early last years "pick"... how to pick is part of the "secret" .. but the genomes do vary and it is not possible to maintain 100% genetics given the variables... since they are all F1 they will be very different from each other no matter how you slice it, its upto the grower to pick the mom to keep for self .... I don't do F2 because there is plenty of that out there  As for the Outdoor Germ'd Seeds questions, generally it become climate able near the end of may. this year MAY be sooner who knows based on this past winter. so the LATEST you should start them would be May 1st but the bigger you want your plant to be the bigger it has to be when you put it outside. starting now if it is feasible to keep them at a larger size :D thanks


Comments

hey mark i see on your page that time is full..i just got may papers singed by my doctor ...when is time going to be open for new patients????? I just cant keep up with demand I'm sorry I just don't know, there are other clubs around the city and how long does it take for heath canada to get back to me.. call them, they should call you within 3 days.. if they don't call them again in a week... it takes about 2 months to get the permit... and in general they would let you know if there is a problem with the forms... "generally it become climate able near the end of may. this year MAY be sooner who knows based on this past winter. so the LATEST you should start them would be May 1st but the bigger you want your plant to be the bigger it has to be when you put it outside. starting now if it is feasible to keep them at a larger size"

Hello, I plan on growing a few plants outdoors this summer. I am in the Toronto area and have searched everything. The one thing i cannot find is when to start the germination process and when to put the plants outdoors. (what date) Thanks! generally plants can be taken outside May 20th but earlier or later so long as there is no frost at night (happens)... germination should happen a month in advance of that date ... 


Comments

I have visited your site like almost a year ago and back then you had a strain called fast pine and m39/freeze those are the strains i was really interested in is it possible to still get those I still have a bag of fast pine but not in the best of shape... I get 70 to 80% sprouting ratio .... $2/seed but I would probably package extra just because of age .... new ones should be coming soon ... like 2 weeks... I say every 2 weeks ...

Thank-You for all your help! You have always been there for me with advice! As an example I sent you an image of a leaf with spots and you responded within 1 minute!

Like I believe a month plus is just being too busy. Probably on some beach while our crops fuck up....ya you really care and are really sorry..buddy if you do not have the time you should not be here telling us you care. ...stay calm... 2 cookies later... the phone number up there is a cell phone I carry and anyone on the internet can call me pretty much anytime.... now I have a life and so try not calling on the weekends but I do pick up... anyways... in an emergency do not rely on a forum, just call me, or call me again in 15 minutes or the next day... point is its quicker then this forum... or internet in general.... there are reasons why I do not pick up you know, my health is one reason

I find talking to people easier IN AN EMERGENCY then through email... sorry am so 20 century... am getting all yoda and stuff

I would like to grow from seed in a pot and place outside on the porch, It would be great to get a guide or some instruction the best way to do this, I'm expecting the plants to grow with my vegetable garden, I'm not looking for multiple yields, thanks in advance. And Thanks for being awesome!

Ok so I am ph'ing ..using blue lab pen..120.00 bucks...Q..is it not better to go to Promix HP instead of BX now I see no difference when it comes to end product, in general HP is meant to allow quicker water evaporation and BX retains more water.. so you may chose as you need.....won't buffering done by Promix BX be unnecessary and maybe worse by reducing correct PH nut's further...??? you can actually not ph the water at all and the plants will grow just fine I did that for years, but phing just gives them that extra extra health Q number 2 and A IT'S A BIGGY ..issue 25 / 2011 Treating YourSelf mag [ author Joe Pietri } has article that claims 18/6 or 24 hrs light for grow unnecessary ......as well as 12/12 for bud...claims we should use the table below... [ only stretches plants etc and/or mostly for electrical savings I think ] ...for veg/ grow...only need 13 hours on lights....then they say..use 12-1 lighting..which is 12 hours on..5.5 hours off...1 hour on...then 5.5 hour off then repeat schedual ..apparently the 1 hour on fools the plants into thinking growth state...so 5 hours energy saved PER DAY..35 hours /week....etc thats a lot!! In bud use 11 hour on and 13 off.....save an hour a day what do you think?? I will trust you only if you show me the bud you grew, until then its empty words... I saw this "special" bud and I was not impressed... not to say this guy does not know... am just skeptical

Hello Mark, Thanking you in advance for answering my questions. I have a couple. 1) Happy to say my foray into green crack has worked it seems. Crazy stone. Almost got my 1P per light. My friend is telling me I should switch to blueberry kush as it produces more volume. about the same, all kushes stay below 1 p per light Would you agree with that? Is blueberry a 7 week plant as well? 8 weeks FYI - My white shark still remains a pain. Big plant with a lot going on but it just doesn't get supper tight buds, even with heavy feeding. less food more bud booster, I prefer 80% nutrients and 125% bud booster for 3 weeks straight Big buds that just don't get dense. lack of booster is all, this applies to all strains 2) Ever hear of Wappa strain? nope I was impressed with bud size. Haven't harvested yet but it looks serious. Can you comment on it's number of weeks to harvest and if it is a desirable strain? 3) My last question is in regards to power usage. I have been running six 1000 watt lights for 5 years with a full on veg system to compliment. I estimate 7000watts with fans on bloom and 2000watts on the veg side. Power bill is $1,300.00 every two months or $650 monthly. Is this high enough to warrant attention from Hydro?  Never a peep from them in 5 years. I know you have said as long as you pay your bill you are OK and I agree from my past experience. However I am now looking at putting in a 24,000 btu air conditioner. This will add an estimated 2000 watts. Q) Am I getting crazy on power consumption? Am I risking getting flagged by Hydro in this middle class suburb? Please advise. I will drop roughly 1000w worth of intake/exhaust fans as the AC will do their work. Thank you, Problem Child you do not understand how this works... FIRST there is no such thing as "a guy who checks power bills for too much usage".. there is just no one with this job period... the only way to be flagged is 1. stealing power... your street meter would tell them 2 months later they call cops... 2. someone told them and a cop is standing in front of your house calling hydro asking to compare your usage with your closest neighbor.... if his/her power bill is a fraction of yours cops will get a warrant whether you have a hot tub or a grow house.... these are the only two possible ways to be in trouble due to hydro.... funny fact: 90% of bust are due to domestic dispute.. as in the wife calls the cops

I purchased two different strains of seeds from you. It has been a good month or more and all of the seeds from one package are already growing while the other seeds are not even sprouting. I placed all of the seeds in the same wet paper towel so it is safe to say that all of the seeds were treated in the same way. What are my odds of getting new seeds for no cost to me? go back to the café and get replacements or call me if you got them online, we are easy about replacements I've been a grower for 30 years and have never seen this happen.

Hey I have to say promix is the way to go simple and problem free. Ok iI had a few quick questions for you I was wondering how long can marijuana be stored and still maintain most of its potency? in a jar and fridge for years, in a bag in basement may be 2 months Is THC only found in the trichomes no, the whole plant has some levels of THC (even stem has 0.05%) but obviously bud has the most, if I'm correct then CBD is found in crystals/trichones/hash more (relatively) then in bud ? Lately when I am starting cuttings on a plant that is hard to start cuttings of I have been putting three or four cuttings into one block of rockwool. Later if more than one takes I keep the biggest strongest one and cut the others down, witch seems like a shame, I was wondering if it would be ok to let them all grow or will the roots choke each other out? the two or three plants combined will not be better then a single healthy plant but eventually the plant that "wins" (this competition?) will grow big and the one that "lost" will be a poor dwarf to the bigger one, but it may be difficult to tell which one is which... point is.. you are introducing a form of stress which is never good even if its fun to experiment with....

hi, im a first time grower i tried once and failed miserably! I am trying to grow in my closet. I do have a 400watt halogen???? bulb in a work lamp first will this work? no and at 24/7 a day will this greatly increase the bill which i am not paying, no, a computer may use more power i am also living with my parents at the moment so they cannot catch on. then you are stupid or someone is trolling me I cant keep the closet open so will a single fan in the closet work? no Lastly and maybe the most important thing of all is there anyway for me to control the height of the plant? no Thank you!! all answers are much appreciated! rrrreally

Hi there- I run Vaporizer Store ( http://vaporizer-store.net ) and NFusion Vaporizers ( www.nfusion.ca  ) as well as some other sites. I am looking for sites that want to either 1) trade links .. setup links from my sites to your site (or sites if you have more than one URL) .. i have over 50 different URLs of my own so I could provide you incoming links from many different URLs all related to Vaporizers, Electronics, Brands of vaporizers, Medical Marijuana. I have also have domains for Electronics, Mobile Electronics, Real Estate, and Offshore Dominican Real Estate. 2) instead of trading links, I also offer an Affiliate program for the Vaporizer Store and NFusion.ca. You place links to my sites on your websites ( as many as you want and wherever you want, the more links the better result). Each link has your affiliate tag in it, and when a visitor clicks on the link and gets to my site a cookie is set for that person for 30 days.

Payments occur on the 15fh of the month and are through Paypal, or Money Order. The commission on each product is different as we make different profits on each product. If you want to sign up for the program then I will get you that information. Let me know if you're interested in either of these. Thanks Mike I guess here you go, mail me a vaporizer for review and I will make a page of it

I went to your cafe and bought two packs of your feminized Northern lights. I am wondering if the rare earth seeds Northern lights is the #5 strain or not? this grower does not know other then its a northern lights, its from a old hippy male? who grew this particular strain for decades? he/she is old like the trees On my package it just said NL || with two lines , could that mean #2? no, just a internal way to lable a package before we slap a proper lable on it  I want to just know exactly my strain. its a NL from an old hippy who grew this forever.. and when he/she says this is northern lights I do not question an old hippy I knew now for 11 years (BTW growing in the heart of the city for 30 years!!!!!) Thanks!

mark if i let my plant bloom for a extra 2 weeks what will happen do they get bigger and more packed with a extra 2 weeks.....i have 1 week left in bloom with my plant and i dont see any red hairs yet.. nothing much happens if you let them get 1 week longer.... 2 weeks longer may result in sleepier bud (which is a benefit to some) ... on the average if ALL hair are not brown/colored then the bud is NOT too late yet... the "perfect" harvest window is 2 days BUT "optimal" window is 3 weeks.. as harvest in any time from end of week 7 to beginning of week 10

Started with Aerogarden switched to Sunblaze T5 4light system in my small closet with promix and have just one plant currently (seed from the street) exploring possible pitfalls to this personal pleasure enterprise before my purchased G13's take to the soil. Finding this fun but a little bit of work with my mystery plant now standing a full 8" and in 3rd day of bloom waiting for my chance to determine sex. I supercropped and pruned as suggested (x2) over a week ago. The plant seems healthy/happy however leaves on top part of canopy turned yellow at the tip. Mark am I too close to my T5's (between 1nch 2 from lamps)?...is this overfeeding? overheating (the small closet is a challenge keeping below 30c) T5s are meant to be 5-12 inches away from the plants... and when the plants get to 1 inch away some leafs may curl or yellow which should not really affect the rest of the plant ... but pulling back the light will help...

I have four kids, the last being twins and most likely my cause for needing medical MJ is the pain in my back from being 80+ lbs heavier for many months further damaging my previous spinal injury layered with three degenerate spinal conditions. I want to stay off the heavy pain meds and I more than qualify for whatever pain control I ask for. I would like to smoke about a gram a day and would like no one else to know, or handle my medication. I want a plant or two in my basement. I already run half a dozen heat lamps for my exotic pets and am a good gardener so I should be okay doing this as long as I follow good guides and read up the right info. I have heard that as soon as I get my card to grow however that the police would be all over me. I don't want to get arrested on suspicion of trafficking. I have been arrested wrongly a few times, once for a bomb threat, once for an assault that never happened, and on 911 for terrorism because I left school upset that day. None of these times did I do any wrong but still I was treated like a criminal for doing nothing. Just because people thought I looked like the kind of person who would. I am a tattoo artist and I'm Native Canadian, so I get some racial and lifestyle judgment so the last thing I need is a swat team assuming Im a drug dealer and scaring my kids just so I can avoid taking serious pain pills. I would rather be in pain than risk my kids losing me on false drug charges. I heard of one guy who had an under cover officer come to buy from him. He gave the officer a little and went to jail. I won't share or sell but I don't want an under cover officer at my door I have better things to do than get watched or recorded because I smoke pot for severe back pain. I mean really? Or is my friend that said this just a paranoid stoner. He has like fake body parts and is pretty much dying but is afraid to get his medical card because he thinks he will go to jail or lose his family. Just as every thing starts with a grain of truth, is he speaking from reality here? Am I going to end up in jail for my medication if I'm not careful? I have a doctor looking at my back in 10 days who will sign, we spoke already I'm able to get pretty much any amount I want my back is really horrible, should I do the Medical Marijuana ? I can not answer health questions, I'm sorry.. watch this first before you think its all about getting high, may be this person is open to a discussion

Hi I drove from xxxxxxxxxxxx to buy seeds on Saturday. I got back home today and opened my pack of AK 47 seeds and only found 4. I thought there would be 5. What can I do? I can not mail to usa but I will gladly give you a new one (and open it there to make sure its all there)

can people tell me about which ph meters they use ...cost...quality etc thanks my repost from below - 

I think with proper care (and I mean CARE) and a solid hydro  store behind the purchase (hint: exchange) anything around a $100 + is reliable, anything below this mark breaks too often, anything over $200 is overkill...Northern Lights Hydroponics sells several models including the 40 dollar model/ can you please give me your opinion ?? what do YOU use to ph with ???? this is what I should have ... this is what I use ...

I'm going to start my grow indoors this year then move outside and have a few questions. I have limited space so the plants can't get over 7". The date I want to take them out would be around may 24 with a week of acclimatization included. I plan to use Sunblaster Lamp 24w (2') T5 how many weeks do you think I should start so they could reach an optimal height without getting to tall. Also I could use up to 4 of those lamps a few inches apart, do you think I would need 4 or could get by with less. 18/6 or 24/0 ? Should I use any nutrients during these weeks? Growing Fast Pine. at best start sometimes in early march even February... in order to get a coupe of solid mothers going first... if not then you can start in early April... I would definitely suggest doing mothers and not just from seeds to T5s....

just wondering if anyone can give me some advice on a good feminized strain that would grow good in the nova scotia area?? have grown fast pine with great results but I'm tired of all that work then pulling a male out of the ground unless someone knows where I can get some feminized fast pine seeds but this is the only site I can find fast pine when mark has them and there not feminized?? any help would be appreciated.... Rosetta stone was made for this, its feminized, and big.. there is also AMS .. not sure the price is justified compared to Rosetta....

so with the help of this great page and people that are willing to take the time to help people they don't even know I should be able to do it if mark don't get seeds until febuary should be able to have clones for mid may?thanks ..yes

It obviously depends on what lights you grow your mother under...if T5's it will take several months [ and is a bad idea/ takes too long and stretches the plant too much ] ...with 1000 watts a couple of weeks...might I suggest that you need to super crop a mother plant more than once[ why you see others with mother plants that look like tree's or bushes...trimmed properly as it goes along ]...you should not try to grow a mother plant b/c you need the clones in a few weeks...a good mother takes a little longer I clip clones off my new mother as it grows planning the plants growth stages but I don't depend on the new mother for clones until its bigger..so I never kill off my old mother until the new one is substantial...therefore I will takes clones off both old mother and new mother but usually only a few clones off the new mother for a while// pls. watch this video and see if the extra foliage the mother inevitably generate can be put to good use

Thanks for the PH info...further to this is my Q about testing methods.... ......the gamit of products from test strips to drop solutions to ph meters is extensive.......I am sure the test strips and drops are great for beginners growing tulips but I see them as inadequate and just not very accurate indeed, test strips are inaccurate for our purpose ....so as for meters they run from 40 bucks to 700 bucks.. I think with proper care (and I mean CARE) and a solid hydro  store behind the purchase (hint: exchange) anything around a $100 + is reliable, anything below this mark breaks too often, anything over $200 is overkill...Northern Lights Hydroponics sells several models including the 40 dollar model/ can you please give me your opinion ?? what do YOU use to ph with ???? this is what I should have ... this is what I use ...

how long does it take to get a decent size mother plant??? you can take the first clone off at about 6-8 inches, but to get from there to say 30 clones every 2 weeks under a 400 or 100W MH... 4 months...

i have powdery mildew and i have some garden sulphur how much should i use in how much water? DO NOT use sulphur in BLOOM, in VEG it will work just fine and get rid of the mildew but in BLOOM the sulphur WILL destroy the smell and smoke (as in make it completely unsmokable) ..... the only thing you can do is to spray with a lot of water every 3 days.... mildew will die IF drowning in water but re-appear when humidity returns so its a temporary solution not a fix... (if you are member of time I have a solution for bloom but only for members, sorry)


Comments

any chance of fast pine seeds February we get new outdoor stock  if not do you sell them on any other sites??thanks this seed bank may have some (this is not an endorsement, just sharing info)


Comments

The reason I ask you is there seems to be a lot of expert opinion out there..all qualified growers....some say 5.1 to 5.9 never over [ 5.1 clone/ 5.9 veg / 5.5 bud ] ...some say veg 6.5 and bud 5.5 ...I have read some other answers but maybe you could clarify ?? maybe at pro level and comment on equip too please..ie., ph meter brand to strip ph kits/ accuracy ..thanks....etc,etc,... merry christmas The acceptable range for veg is from 6.8 to 6.0 (7.0 is tap water)... for convenience I keep it at 6.5 in promix.... in bloom I start at 5.8 in week 1, drop it to 5.4 in week 2 or 3 and take it to 5.2 in week 4 to 8 (so the acceptable range is from 5.8 to 5.2)... again I often settle for an average of 5.5 and it seems totally ok (I'm not a stickler).... when it comes to cloning I do not pH at all and get fully rooted clones in 7 to 10 days with 95% success rate.... I have a disagreement with other growers as to the very necessity of pH-ing the water for clones.... I simply see no evidence to pH the water for clones.... this is the thing: if you give clones "perfect" environment why would they create roots at all? there has to strategic stress for the clones to "need" to create clones.... I find that in a "perfect" (as in pH-ed water) environment the plants tent to get their nutrition through humidity and not so much through the stem and they just do not root (as quickly or ever)... so I try to make the water "pleasant" enough for them to live but just "stressful" enough to force clones to "seek" another "better" environment.... in any case, that's what I do
