Holy cow! I loved the Buckeye Purple I grew. Prettiest plant I have grown. Bought the seeds on a Firestax Thanksgiving day sale I think. Impressive line up all around.

Me and Mel are good friends [She is Melvanetics], she made a cross with BeP to Cinderella99 [Mr. Nice] that I'm gonna try popping soon, she gave them to me over five years ago, last time I saw her in Pueblo Co. I'll take some pic's of the BeP clone she gave me as well, she makes a very pretty girl in flower

Most of the original misfit's went there after being ran off from the Farmer.

I was wondering where some peeps are, and trying to make new friends here...i'll have to ease over to staxs soon and see whats up there...

You were on Firestax......do you remember the o'l Farts Thread?
I think I only posted a couple of questions to Mel. I wasn’t really that active of a participant. I may have a journal for my Buckeye Zpurple and Super Buckeye grow. Both nice strains that were popular with my kids and their friends. The purple was just the most novel looking weed kids in the area had seen and potent too. I think I signed up for an account to buy the Buckeye Purple seeds.

She responded quickly when I had a question on Firestax . She was friendly

Here was my grow:

Seems longer ago…

Nice gear and beautiful buds brother. I see you have some of Cartys gear. I'm running some of his Autos right now outside. I'm growing nothing but Autos for awhile. Having a lot of fun with them especially with the genetics that Carty sent me. He has another strain he is going to send me called Northern Light Ryder and it's also an Auto.
Glad your back posting on the Passion my friend.

Well round one has begun...I hit them with three different chems because you never get them all, the second pass is three days after the preceding...after one round the girls / Bunker get a week to see what transpires....if needed they get hit again with the rotation. After the bunker is rid of the bugs....all of them, I will clone off of each cut I hold one single cut, when it roots I'll toss the donor...the girls will really get beat up, hate to see them struggle...but in the end I'll have clean cuts to veg and flower...and the Bunker goes on.

Here are pic's from the clone room, took the Borg less than a week to attack them and I took some pic's for people to tell whats going down, it starts very small but if you see the sandblasting of the leaves before they take over then you have a much easier time, usually can spray once and isolate and the problem is gone [ I still spray the whole three treatment pass]

Here is the last girls through and they are getting a beating from the Borg....never treat in flower....just have to either trash the run or hold out till the end if possible...we got 4-6 days left so we will squeak through just fine. Getting heavy now and breaking limbs under their weight and I stake up real well know this and they still bulk up and break....first world problems lol.

Its sad to see my final run with the old beamers get attacked by the Borg, I usually keep my labs clean in the Bunker but I have been dirty for about a year now and its my fault. The rebuild and upgrades are gonna provide better meds and pictures...that will start soon enough need to get the last girls finished up and hung to dry...i usually get them done in about two weeks, that lab is sorta like a humidor...I slowly dry and then cure in there before trim/jar/store. Peace

Those are nice. Are they red or is that the lighting. The lighting messes me up sometimes. They are beautiful 🥰

Thats Buckeye Purple....the buds are a beautiful velvety color of deep rich purple, the leaves around it too blush up in a lavender...I'll take some pic's when I grow her, she makes pretty pictures and much better smoke, she is a regular in the rotation.

Tear down and new door in, filters changed and new LED's hung and tested. Iluminar iLogic9 Full Spectrum & UV+Far-Red. Breaking down all (18) 2.5gal buckets, Brain bucket bucket, replacing all the pumps. Cleaned both the 40gal feed rez and the fresh water ATO barrel. Just need to sweep and mop, then get down to spraying for a week....little ones in veg are hurting and sickly, the stuff I use is harsh but effective.

Two different types sprayed three days apart and then a week rest...only the second time in my life I have gotten the Borg. I keep my labs clean but Lung Disease and Cancer keep coming and whooping my ass.

I got me new beamers, the bunker got a new door and was once again sealed air tight, CO2 up to 1600 ppm and temps run 75-90f under the best lights on the market. I'm please everything did well on today's test run....tonight another dry run for the lights / grow computer...12hour burn in with the atmosphere at 1600ppm CO2...that way I can fine tune the rooms and get them perfect.

Then shut down for the final rebuild of the CAP ebb/flow and then take clones of the sprayed ones and look at them under a 60x loupe daily to make sure the borg are dead...once the damaged little ones strike, I'll toss the sprayed clones and veg out....then the show really begins. Peace


pic's from today...last hanging plants...will trim them tomorrow, the hurt little girls...and the light and filter changes

Pace y'all...I finished up cancer in 2021 and had been getting short of breath during radiation....so CT's showed nodules and ground glass opacities.... started following every 6 months at the VA...then that turned to interstitial lung disease....progressing super fast...don't need O2 yet but close....long story short all the tests point to Idiopathic Interstitial Pulmonary Fibrosis ....that gives me a bad prognosis of three to five years before needing lung transplant to live...so huge thoracic surgery to get large biopsies of the lungs to try and rule this Dx out....ILD the grouping of over 200 diseases is terminal some take ten to fifteen years some as little as three. So tbh I'm dealing with this and all the trips to the hospital for long CT's and blood tests, anesthesiology, surgical consult and seeing my lung specialist from Shands. I'll be on and off spotty for awhile till I get the surgery and get discharged from the hopsital...till then they are keeping me hopping...which is good cause im highly pissed i survived throat cancer only to be killed by lung disease....makes all the hurt and agony from throat cancer sorta ******* usless....so thats my lot these days...sorry to dump....just a bit scared and worried, and I'm a well respected retired nurse...silly to be worried.

Hoping for the best for you, man. Sounds like a tough road ahead but it sounds also like immersing yourself in your work is a good diversion. Impressively meticulous. Take care.

Damn brother. Hope everything turns out okay for you my friend. I'm kinda at a loss for words. Not much a person can say. My Wife fought Vulvar cancer last yr. It's gone but she has to do follow up visits every so often. It was horrible watching her go thru those fking treatments.
