    I will check it out for sure
    Gets so wet here I barely can let them flower fully cause the air gets so damp(I live 1 mile from the confluence of two large rivers 70 miles from the pacific)

    sounds like a good idea though, sounds like you can use it until 2 weeks from harvest? does it affect taste?

    Yes, stop 2 weeks from harvest, does not affect taste at all. Since you have moisture issues, I'd recommend spraying in the morning, not night.

    For powdery mildew you could look into a product called green cure. It's way more expensive now than it used to be, but you can spray that up until harvest if you so choose.

    yep but if buds get large they tend to rot from never being able to dry out

    our high temperatures are low 70s and dropping daily now
    nights are 45 degrees in a week or so
    :eek:

    thanks though will look into that also

    Yeah, won't help with mold, just powdery mildew. Sounds like that won't help in your case. Canadian outdoor strains or Dutch strains might be your best bet (thunderfuck as you mentioned, maybe holland's hope).

    Or just sticking with early finishers, nothing over 8-9 weekers.

    Kind of a bummer. I'd force flower in that type of environment since you are probably ratfucked for all heavy kush varieties.

    I always think of doing that
    but I leave town quite a few times and the neighbors/caretakers are sweet lesbians who are still scared of my "Pot Plants"...so it would have to be automated(spendy)

    a couple miles or so off these rivers and the air is much drier and the conditions are dry for a few weeks more

    this morgage is almost paid off and soon we will be in a rural area with better/drier conditions most likely

    What strains do you have going right now? Are they all experimental, or have you had success before with them? I know fuckall about growing in any other environment than socal (essentially mexico since I'm so close to the border).

    no idea...this year was just a random grab of clones from random dispensaries
    hence the suprise auto flower, which is actually very stoney

    my Nurse Betty(CBD rich) looks really nice and the WIFI Grindr and "Something" Fire are late flowering and are gonna be really late for this environment IMO

    I remember you mentioning the strains when you posted the shots, just didn't remember what they were (and am too lazy to sift through all the pages of this massive thread to find it). I'm wondering if there is an easy fix to your issues. I live in a valley and lose direct sunlight earlier than those to the west (also get morning sunlight later than those to the east). As a result, imalways start flower several weeks sooner thqn others in this geographical region. I'm wondering if something simple could be set up a few weeks prior to natural flowering cycle which simply placed the plants into shade sooner, but not total blackout. Total theory, but might be worth a shot.

    never thought of that but might work, great idea

    once had one on side of house and it was shaded and flowered way early, was illegal at the time and sketchy at 9-10 feet tall but it was glorious smoke

    would feel so odd to not put it in "Max Sun" area but actually would make a lot of sense for my variables

    just made a sticky note for next year to try it with one plant

    My theory would be something like a sail or a curtain of sorts, blocking out as much light as possible only on one side. You'd place that on whichever side of the plant (east/west only, not north/south) received the least daylight, so it will be heavy and leaning in one direction and somewhat pathetic on the other. You'd install it on two strong stakes a few weeks before regular flowering, then when you have a normal flowering cycle, remove it.

    I'm thinking once in flower, you lower the curtain bit by bit until it's removed, limiting the stress on the plant.

    I had heavy rain coming in earlier this week, so I chopped everything in a rush just to get it inside. I'm bummed since they should have gone longer, but im not risking mold after going this long. The caterpillars can take what they get, but I'll be damned of a heavy rain ruins everything.

    Here is the Tahoe trimmed up. Dry trimming sucks ass, but oh well. Room smells like straight up kerosene right now.

    one man trim crew here
    so it is taking forever

    minimal caterpillars after the initial top cola harvest
    too cold for them or they just layed on the outside of the plants

    lil spots of mold on the bushy plant

    potent herbs

    no giant buds but a lot of good medium sized nugs

    I've tossed complete colas without even attempting to salvage since I'm a one man crew.

    me too

    I barely fed these ladies anything this year so the buds aren't huge...but they are pretty tasty, even without a full cure
