Works for me. The Bible does say if you're going to lay with another man you should be stoned.

Kome: MountainClimber:

Not many lefties call for the total banishment of guns. In fact, very few do.


I'm a socialist and pro-gun. There's no contradiction there.  I personally dislike guns and have zero desire to ever own one but I strongly believe that that in no way justifies taking away other people's guns.

Kittypie070: iq_in_binary: tinfoil-hat maggie: iq_in_binary: tinfoil-hat maggie: iq_in_binary: Growing the HIGH end stuff is what takes skill and/or automation.

That's the truth and you have to have good seed stock.

I'd actually be willing to posit that environmental control, ie being able to maintain as uniform a growing environment as possible and having control over the different factors that promote growth and plant health will affect both your yield amount and potency more than having a "Kennedy" level seed pedigree.

The guys that have Cannabis Cup level strains don't like to tell you that they're not pulling those buds from the same grow rooms as their general cash crop. Those plants are grown in as close to laboratory conditions as they can figure out how to accomplish. When it becomes legal nationwide, expect the guys with automation experience to turn out the most and highest concentration THC/CBD buds, not the greenthumbs.

I can see that and I've been out to Cali years ago and they had stuff that blew the doors of anything grown here and I agree nutrients and creating optimime growing conditions would be the primary factor. I mean you could gets the best seeds from the Amsterdam seed bank and give them to two different people. One someone thats been "pro" for years and an avid vegie gardener and I know who would win.

Give them to a guy at a Makerspace. He'd blow the doors off the lot of them.

There's a reason I have an Arduino on my desk hooked up to CO2, proximity, liquid particulate sensors and a random array of solenoids......

Expect plenty more when it's legal.

/Oh, and Aero is the way to go. Quickest feedback, best way to automate cameras into the system to detect nute burns before they become serious and adjust accordingly. Only way I can see to "thread the needle" in real time and allow automation systems to affect growth in ways that the human element will never let us be capable of.
//Automation of Cannabis grows will lead the way to automated grow ope ...


The leaves themselves, actually. Roots are incredibly resilient to nutrient overload due to the fact that they're not actually doing any work aside from delivering the nutrients to the areas of the plant that are actually burning calories. Namely the leaves performing the myriad conversions of different nutrients into different sugars and proteins via photosynthesis. Unless you're exposing the roots to excessive alkalinity or acidity via the nutrient bath itself, they'll pretty much suck up anything you can throw at them so long as they're not exposed to light or left dry for too long. Same goes for the stalk of the plant except you're not worried about the light and it's pretty resilient to any water borne toxicity. The growing medium that you're using to foster the roots usually does away with any of the alkalinity or acidity the nascent precipitation may introduce, whether by way of local treatment with additives like calcium and loam for soil grows or use of organic neutral compounds like rock wool and various nut shell wools for hydroponics. The leaves are where you gauge any damage being done to pretty much any plant that flowers above ground. It's where all the work is being done. You don't look to the drive train when the motor in your car is overheating or knocking.

You'd be surprised how many hydro grows go wrong because they're overzealous about their nutrients and figure that the yellow spots originating from the stem of a leaf are due to the lights being too close to the plant as opposed to the nutrients feeding too much sulfur to the plant. (Little hint, both light burns and nute burns take the appearance of yellow spots or areas on a leaf: Light/heat burns because the plant can't feed enough water to the edges of a leaf to keep it from heating up too much and wide spectrum lighting does nothing but add way more than blue to the cells dying to offset the already occurring yellow and keep it green, and nute burns because sulfur itself reflects yellow, the most common nutrient that newcomers burn their plants with.)

Foxxinnia: BMFPitt: Trying to come up with a Canadian libertarian joke.

Got nothing.

People are nice enough in Canada that libertarianism might actually work.


If Harper is an example of nice Conservative Canadians I'm afraid you'll be disappointed. Someone who white knights Robber Barons is still a quivering warthog sphincter even if he has a nice smile

if he's a libertarian he also wants tax and environmental law that is only good for oligarchs, so you won't have any money to buy weed anyways.

Now that's just silly. Marijuana plants don't have guns. And even if they did, why would they need protecting?
