Spring is starting out a warm one here, 25C tomorrow and the local outdoor pool will be open! It's heated to take the worst of the bite out of the water, so tomorrow looks like my first swim of the season.

It's a bit of a dodgy month weatherwise... it's been nice and warm, but at night we could still drop to zero if there is no night time cloud cover. I have a couple of small plants in a little greenhouse atm and building a new stealth garden bed for a couple of short flowering varieties later on in the summer.

If the warmth now is anything to go by... it's going to be a hot summer, so I may have to shutdown the indoor for few months. Unless I can get solar panels installed before summer hits.

What doesn't kill me just makes me stranger...

Thanks SL , september is usually a good month weather wise here, so much so that we call it our summer because all the tourists have gone home leaving us with a couple of weeks of good weather without the grockles (people from london) we do get mists that locally we call the haa or dagg. but these are usually short lived, the real struggle is keeping the temp up as although its sunny the temps can be low 15-20c.

I hope your spring is going well, are you growing anything under the sun this year?

Peace

Sorry to hear about your technical problems Sickle, damn, and the stem rot that really sucks.

I hope there is at least a bit of fair weather for you in the coming weeks.

Well! it been a funny month, i broke my tablet which is a good thing as it really really used to pissed me off because i would always be pressing three buttons instead of one due to me having farmer fingers... as my better half calls them....she's from the city so is of cause infinitely more refined than I.....not! lol

To top it off my back up net book thingy has decided to not connect to the inter web at all. Grrrrr!

Anyway i lost the battle with stem rot on a couple of branches on the skunk kush, but it seem under control at the moment since i gave them the chop.. i think it has just started to flower so i will be using the heater etc to keep things ticking over during the bad weeks ahead.

Thanks charly/sarah, I found a touch of stem rot on the skunk kush the other day so quickly remedied it by using a light solution of bleach, hopefully I have caught it soon enough....

We have had some rotten days lately, cool and wet, fungus heaven!

@mellow, I already have loads of great northern outdoor genetics from Canada and Denmark all ill be doing is crossing them with each other to make my own unique hybrids..

Standing on the shoulders of giants, kinda thing..

I missed this grow last time round sickle, loved the results you got back from the purple plants, looked really good. I hope you can find a good northern strain, this time next year you'll be a millionaire :).

Sorry fella just noticed your post, I didny keep the bd girl not for long AnywAy.... Yeah I'd grow it again, the black domina that I got was really nice a heavy after work type smoke. I kinda moved away from heavy indicas for abit but think ill refresh my memory with some northern lights after this first run of blue dream.

Hi everyone!! As Sicklehand asked, his Skunk Kush under glass thread has been copy/pasted here.

Skunk kush under glass
Posted: 22 August 2015 at 18:48



Thought id post some pictures of my skunk kush that i have growing in the greenhouse, she was meant to be coming indoors to flower but alas she has spider mite so instead she'll have to fend for herself. I will keep treating her for mites but with plants this big it is my experience that you can not rid them of mites totally.

On the plus side we do get to have a bit of fun growing a skunk hybrid in a greenhouse.. i will be insulating the greenhouse as much as possible to stretch the growing season as long as possible, i also have a heater that will help.



You cant really see it but she's about three foot tall and already giving off a nice skunky funk.





Im expecting it to start flowering around the beginning of September but we'll see.

very sexy. what kind of pest control do you use, is it biological or chemical?

organicgrow      22 August 2015 at 22:15

Hey Sickle,
The plant looks absolutely lovely.

Abamectin combined with horticultural oil is a good pesticide mix if you're troubled by spider mites. It absolutely decimates them. It's only slightly systemic and the half-life is not long so there should be no concerns using it on cannabis, especially while the plants are in veg. Even in the first few weeks of bloom it's safe to use.

Abamectin is sold under many different brands around the world, so if you're interested a simple Google search will tell you which brands are available to you locally.

Cheers

Thanks for the heads up og.

It's a real shame I can't flower it indoors because it would of been quite a show, but I don't want to infest the rest of the plants I have to flower.


CowardlyCustard    Posted: Yesterday at 11:15

had you ever thought of diatomaceous earth as a preventative. ive not used it personally as my outdoor experience is naught. just wondered if its ever been on your radar?

sicklehand     Posted: Yesterday at 11:21

Heard of it never used it though, I'll investagate whether or not it can be applied as a spray...


CowardlyCustard Posted: Yesterday at 11:26

you spread it on the ground around the base of the plant. stops anymore with climbing aspirations getting to the girls. makes your spray a lot more effective.

sicklehand    Posted: Yesterday at 11:34

Yeah I've heard of it used for soil born pests, thrips, gnats etc. I guess it couldn't hurt to have a safe guard them. Maybe next year.

sicklehand Posted: Yesterday at 11:56

A couple of more shots..






alecky     Posted: Yesterday at 11:57

Tis a beast sickle mate! I think she will do well outdoors, especially in the GH. Best of luck with her bro, looking forward to the show.

sicklehand      Posted: Yesterday at 12:09

Thanks bud, your right it should do well if i can keep the greenhouse warm an still have good ventilation because i think its going to be a late oct early nov finish.   


mellow          Posted: Yesterday at 12:25

Well first up, wow, that's one beautiful looking girl, love the colour and build as alekcy said beast! such a shame you can't get her under some decent lights.

We had no kind of summer yet, so i hoping we'll have an indian one, I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya bud :).

Right it is nice out today, so i'm off :).


@ Sicklehand: Done!! I'm closing the other one with a link to bring your followers here. Talk to you soon.

Charly Sensi.

Ah ha! Found it, if it's not to much trouble could a mod/adim move to here or delete my skunk kush under glass thread as I would like to use this one.

Thanks for your time.
Peace
