Hey everyone...
I'm fresh out of the hospital since Sat am... my right hip has been replaced and my bionics are coming along fine.. muwahaha. my right leg is straight again, Dr said it was the most difficult hip he's ever done..
my pelvis was actually tilted and he performed miracles. Pain was pretty bad first 2 days but now it's down
to about where it was before surgery.. I think dealing with that chronic pain for the past 5yrs is making this a little more tolerable..

33 Staples in total, even with the 60lbs of weight loss, I'm still a big dude.. and the more research I did regarding hip replacement, the more it said, scar size depends on person size and my hip being so bad he needed room to get it in properly.. so I'm okay with that..

I may not post quite as much for a bit ok.. but I'll try weekly ok..
I take it your bikini modeling career is over? 😁

Well, sorry for the absence but needed some time to heal up.. but thank you ALL for the love and healing vibes..

Update: It's Day 11 and been off pain meds for 4 days, hip feels freaken awesome. All the pain is gone from before.. my hip was so bad he had to really open me up to tilt my pelvis and get my hip aligned properly.. right leg is straight and feels great. I get the 33 staples out tomorrow and hoping to get approved to start swimming again. I've lost 61lbs but would like to lose another 45 or so.. I look good at 225..

Plants are doing great..

The Trizzler F2 plants are incredible.. I wound up with 2 Indica dom ladies who came down day 50 & 55.
The other 2 are Sativa dom and have a ways to go yet.. probably going to be closer to 65 or 70.

I put the Trizzler plants into the small tent and now the Cheese Off is in the big tent under the Mars Hydro..

I topped these plants in veg, a first for me.. curious to see how they turn out..

I'll slowly be lowering the light as they get used to the double strength of tent #1..

Let the Cheese Off flowering begin.... hehe.

Up next is a Ladybug vs Carty grow off... we both selected strains, made the mistake of ladies 1st and she chose one of my picks.. we also decided to go with a Halloween theme as that is when they'll be in flower..

Do you top your plants Carty?
I will from now on.. last grow I topped one in flower and it did pretty good. so this time decided to do it correct in veg instead. so Ladybug topped 3 and I FIM cut 1. Her plants look better. I'm going for 6 to 8 shoots each plant, remove everything else. depending on plant growth, week 2 or 3..
Yes I was wondering that too since it sounded like the first time he topped them.
Yup... pretty much 1st time trying it correctly and I must say, I love the results. it works well when running 4 to 5 plants in 1 tent. If I was running 3, I'd probably tie them over..

I'm also buying some 3gal felt pots, tall 11.5" pots, allows me to run 4 plants without them touching so the felt can breath as designed.

These Triangle Kush x Watermelon Zkittles are incredible. 2 came down at day #55, Indica dom. Have 2 still going on at day #63, Sativa dom.. have a bit to go yet.

It's pretty cool when a company asks you to test their new light and quite an honor. Maybe they seen my bud production and new it could be improved upon.. a lot. lol.

OTW soon is a TSW-2000 LED grow light assembly from Mars Hydro which will upgrade my current light to almost twice the power.

The most convenient feature of this new light is the dimmer switch
View attachment 289468
made easily accessible. which gives me the ability to slowly get used to this stronger light.. but you know I'm gonna
max it out during flower huh? hehe.

I'd like to make this very 1st grow with this light something that stands out, so the question is, do I grow Autos or break out 6 feminized photo periods, which I now have some elite
genetics to choose from.

So, I'm going to put up a list to see what you people would like me to run ok...

Autos Feminized
Gambian F7 Auto by Rollit
Blueberry F2 by Alaskagrown

Goat & Monkey Seeds Feminized photo periods
Probation Violation (Dawgs Waltz x Triangle Kush)
Blue Angel (Hells Angel OG x Blueberry Indica)
Blue Triangle (Blue Dream x Triangle Kush)
.......... few more on the way to choose from ..........
Hoping for, BomminGranny & Dubble Trouble

I'm truly leaning towards running some photo periods on this 1st run. 6 feminized seeds in 2gal felt pots be a nice start.

The new light will be replacing 3 lights I currently run in my larger tent. Going to make life much easier for this handicapped man..

From unpacking the new light when it arrives to hanging it up and maybe even finishing the current grow under it if it arrives soon.. this is gonna be fun so stay tuned for an in
depth look into this new light..
Way cool

Thanks Josey... and their timing was perfect too. Now I can run my smaller Spider Farmer SF1000 in the smaller tent... nice to have that dimmer switch and a much stronger light for flowering bigger plants out..

The Cheese Off is going pretty dang good, just been way underwatering I think.. grrrr.

Then the 2 Repins12 crosses of Widow Berry Cheesecake.. topped both and talk about prolific budsites..

As you can see, it's difficult to keep different strains dialed in, 2 days away from a feeding and these big ladies are already asking for foods..
