Growing it




Pretty much a giant waste of time.

The Outcome

Feels like
100% Sativa
0% Indica

Works wonders at killing pretty much everything.

Honestly didnt use enough of it to see an effect good or bad. Only had a little left

This was a disappointing strain. It grew big, but then it just sorta died. I could never get the leaf curl to go away and could never tell what the plant wanted.

I think I'm experiencing transplant shock on my Durbin poison plants, but I cant be too sure. I tore some roots accidentally in transplant but that was weeks ago. They still seem to be holding on but advice is appreciated. Also, any advice on what might be munching on my Blue Dre

Hey there im sure the transplant shock is a factor with the torn roots, but being photoperiod plants they should have time to pull through and build new roots and any damaged leaves. I think your low night temps will help keep them small and once it rises they'll definitely flourish more. Perhaps laying a blanket or other garden type cover around the base of the plants at night will help keep them warm, also the cup over the top in the evening into the night would help also, if there's holes in the cup it won't trap too much humidity.
Bugs were a constant battle for me outside, if you can buy a basil plant that's a good companion plant to deter bugs, rosemary is another good one. It's also nice to turn some lady bugs loose, pirate bugs and hatch a few praying mantis(i think they're good with caterpillars etc), and if you see wasps near by let them have free reign as they're incredible killers.:v: Happy growing.
Oh p.s. if you can add a silica product to your feedings that helps the plants resilience and strength for fighting off the various outdoor battles.

Strange splotchiness has recently showed up in a few of my plants in different parts of the garden. I was thinking maybe CalMag deficiency? But I wanted to get an expert opinion. See latest photos.

Hey Kegman, as you're outside you're going to get a fair bit of issues with pests, check the bottom of your leaves to see if you find absolutely microscopic pests, like small black dots or otherwise... look for signs of aphids too just in case, i dont think it's that but it pays to be paranoid so deep into veg.Anyway there are a few ways to get rid of them, including commercial and toxic pesticides, but long term you do want to go bio, perhaps by adding beneficial bacteria in your watering and as a spray. dilute 15g of Bacillus Subtilis, bacillus thuringiensis, bacillus thuringiensis israelensis and mycorrhizals, spray every three days at night for three weeks, add it to the water every 10 days and after three weeks stop the spray, it will control the outbreak, so that the bugs wont reproduce. Hope this helps ! :rocket::

Everything was fine til it wasnt. Came out one morning after several days of tough heat and wind to discover what I believe is budrot and some other disease I cant quite identify. I havent changed up my watering schedule aside from the occasional afternoon watering.

@kegman83 Hi mate I'm afraid that is botrytis aka bud rot You can try to save the plant by removing all of the effected areas (Do not keep moldy weed) The buds are being broken from the inside out which is also the reason
for the leaf curling. It's not really a good idea to water late in the afternoon as the soil will remain damp overnight and when the temp drops humidity and moisture get in and the budrot starts. its always best to water earlier so the soil has a chance to dry before the night time temp change. i hope I was able to provide you with an answer Best of luck
