Grow Pics...

These are just some pics of different grows I have done. Just for fun...


Some pics of an outdoor plant finishing, it just looks beautiful in the sunlight.
Check out the purple leaves on my Black Diesel buds growing outside. This is the results of many days of freezing and at least two with snow, all during the bloom period...

Probable GG#4/Tahoe Cure cross. Survivor of the Desert Challenge.

The buds on this one look good enough to eat.

Possible GG#4/Tahoe Cure cross finishing outside. It survived the summer heat, months at 110+ degrees
My first home-made aero-cloner..
I made the aeroponics rig out of a 5-gallon bucket, a cheap pond pump, bit of scap garden hose and then the simplest sprinkler/mister heads I could make. Used standard netpots with the bottoms cut out and used those black foam inserts you can get for this kind of work. 

Three different grow methods (aeroponics, soil-ponics via Octopots and my own invention), two kinds of light, and all kinds of fun.
Bit of explanation:  I have always been an experimenter and inventor of sorts so the setup in the middle could use some explanation. There are four 5-gallon buckets; the one nearest on the left serves as a kind of reservoir but here is the trick: there is a pond pump inside that is constantly pushing nutrients up and out to the other three buckets via 1/4 inch irrigation hose. Now, inside these three buckets sits a baby crib riser, and sitting on top of that I had plants growing in 2-gallon plastic "grow bags" filled with either soil, soilmix (coco coir and perlite). Of course a seedling in each of the other three. In this case I noticed the one in back-left is missing (just has a cover) so probably that one got moved to a new home in the bloom tent. Anyhow to bring this home, the bottoms of each bucket has a simple 3/4 inch garden hose connector. I fashioned  four 3-foot mini-garden hoses and wired them all together with a four-way splitter. This simple setup is probably the single most amazing method I have found for growing cannabis. Everything I stuck in it grew fantastically strong and rich. Everything, every strain. The big bang I guess is nutrients are constantly flowing through the system: The pump in the main rez pushes nutrients up and out to 3 other buckets with grow-bags and a seedling in each. The nutrients are constantly washing over the entire root system of the plant, eventually draining out the bottom to the bottom of the bucket, where it flows back up the hose to the reservoir where it is filtered to run again.

Its a jungle in bloom sometimes


Some nice (probably) Exorcist, best strain ever.

Things are looking frosty....

Nice Exorcist cola..

Dementia Cannabis Update

Update: 22 July
Project started, grow page and journal is here:

Operation: Constant Clarity

This is one of the most difficult posts I have had to write, mostly because I "had" to. Allow me to explain and I promise by the end you will not only understand the "difficulty" and the "had to" bit but also I hope you come away with a few new assumptions or conclusions, you pick and if all that passes you by, perhaps you will find illumination as this is some serious "dementia from the inside out" kinda shit.

The 18:1 Theory
Before I tell you what happened, please recall I have expressed a theory or hypothesis on the effects of a cannabis extract/concentrate that tests out to have a CBD:THC ratio of 18-1 on the demented mind. By demented I mean any brain with not just dementia but anything that alters so-called normal operation. I don't mean anything like it fixes everything, rather there are things that are fixed by this like PTSD and ADD that you …

Be Who You Actually Are

Many moons ago I was starting my day like many of us enjoying the gifts of dementia by spending most of it screwing up each and every thing I attempted to do, large or small and usually in ways both spectacular as well as costly.  On the verge of tears I spent about an hour medicating with my very best botanicals when I had the BFO (Blinding Flash of the Obvious, engineer-speak): I am still attempting to be something that I am not only NOT but barring acts of a supreme deity, never will be again. Its just that damned simple.

* What makes a persons personality unique is the precise set of influences, patterns of thinking, lifetime experiences or memories amongst many other things. These are all stored and/or controlled by the brain.

* The root cause of dementia is damage to select portions of the brain.

* For better or worse, the simple truth is that this will result in a different person. Not better or lesser, simply different, in the same way that any two coworkers might be very dif…

Holy Crap Batman! A hero with dementia!

Braven 2018
Hey kids, I ran across something you just HAVE to watch. I mean you as in readers of these words. Looking for entertainment last night I was scrounging some of the dodgier parts of the Internet for something not involving a cape or "found footage" to watch. Long story short I ran across something from this year (2018) called Braven, starring Jason Mamoa (Aquaman/Ronin on Stargate Atlantis) and Stephen Lang (the major hard-ass in Avatar).  Plot reads like a B-roll actioner, drug dealers drop in on county folk and try to take them on their own turf. I agree, major tired plotline BUT......
Here is the kicker: The country folks (Mamoa/Lang) are in the cabin in the woods kinda thing because Lang (plays Mamoas dad) has alzheimers (he blames it on some Vietnam injury but...) and got into a fight at a local bar, thinking some girl was his dead wife out on the town. 
Of course Jason beats everyones ass in proper manner as it should be but thats why these two are in the c…
