Hello everyone here at Green Passion. I am stoked to finally be able to grow legally here in Michigan. My wife and I are long time backroom growers. We moved to michigan to run from Indiana's nazi like laws when it comes to cannabis. Also to start helping people with our meds. So its been a few years here now and I feel its time to officially stop hiding and start bragging. I believe we grow some of the best around and hope to prove it here and also on RIU. You can check me out there names Rooster42069. Ok so i started posting there and realized that this is probably a better site for me given the medical focus of GP. Also I watch The weed nerd alot on youtube. Whats up Sub shout to ya. Anyway that was my real motivation to start logging and posting my grows. On one of the episodes he answered a guys question about being a seed/strain tester for tga. He said that you had to be legal and prove you have the skills by posting grows on Green Passion. So the quest to grow the strongest possible cannabis on the planet led me to Subcools youtube stuff and finally to here. Ok now that I am here I guess I will tell Y'all some stuff about me. I live in southwest Michigan with my amazing wife and we live to grow, smoke, ride motorcycles, and just be outside for any reason. We are active members in 2 local compassion clubs as well as many online sites and clubs dedicated to patients, caregivers and stoners of all kinds. We are med grower but don't agree with the way it is being represented these days. Cannabis is great medicine but we need to remember its also just great fun too. So we camp. grow and ride our harley in most of our free time. When not doing any of those I am on here reading grow info and med reports and such. I have read just about every book published on growing and endless numbers of forums and magazines on the subject. Now for or set up. We grow for ourselves and 5 other patients with illnesses ranging from cancer to knee injuries. Our strain list is to long and ever changing so we wont really go there except to names my 4 favorites that are life time members of our grow. The first is a cut we got from detroit from the owner of a grow college that has since closed down due to nazi rule in the area lol. It is called Grandaddy Kush and is a cross of gd purple and og kush. At only 2 1/2 weeks of flower it smells like grape candy already. The next is a mystery from the same place. He said it was called Obama kush. Not really sure of the origins but DAMN. Talk about an epic yielder as well as potent and tasty. The buds grow twice as fast as everyone else in my grow. Next is Grandaddy Purple. Don't think I need to say much here everyone knows about gdp. Also blueberry. . . enough said and the purps. These are from reg seeds ordered from the attitude. The others all come and go. Am considering an Agent Orange as a life time member to club med lol Ok seriously I will get into set up now lmfao. We start under plain T-12 fluorescent lights at 6500k. Next they go to T-5 6500k for early veg. in 1 gallon pots. Then the best 16 get to live and go into 3 gallon pots under a 600w digilux MH bulb spread out buy a sunsystem 6in aircooled reflector powered by a Lumatek digital ballast. The hood is cooled with a 6in inline from menards rated @ 250cfm. This all takes place in a 5x8x7 room I built in our extra family room. We love living with our plants I think it helps ALOT. Now its time to flower which is probably most growers favorite of the cycle. Here they get 5 gallon pots and moved into one of our 2 flower rooms which are extra 10x10 bedrooms. Each room has 4-600w Galaxy select-a-watt didgital ballasts powering Hortilux super HPS lamps in Blockbuster 6in aircooled reflectors. Twin 6in Vortex 450cfm inlines in each room cool 2 lights each per fan. Would have gone 8in but this was a long time in the works one light at a yime. By the time i needed 8in it was too late lol. Anyway this gives me more control and you dont end up with one cool light and one hot one. Both rooms lighting are controlled by a 240 volt Titan Helios 6 wired to its own 40 amp breaker with 8 gauge wire. Each room has its own co2 tank with titan regulators controlled by C.A.P. PPM4 co2 controllers. We live where smell isnt really an issue so no measures are really taken there lol. Will probably end up with carbon filters some day but what the heck. Also each room is wrapped in panda film for reflection and moisture protection for the dry wall. So thats the set up. Its a 3 bedroom,2 family room,2 dining room,2.5bath house and all we get is the kitchen, 1 dining room,1family room,1 bedroom and half a bathroom lmfao. We call our home "The Nug Factory" its more grow than home but its the only way we would ever have it. We live for this plant. Ok now the basics. We run a 16 plant monthly harvest. The pots we use are mostly smart pots from 1 to 5 gallon. Our medium of choice is Sunshine mix 4. We feed our plants Advanced Nutrients Sensi Grow A@B and Fox Farms Microbrew in veg. And flower gets Advanced Nutrients Sensi Bloom A@B plus Bud Igniter, Big Bud, Bud Candy, Rhino Skin, Bud Factor X and Overdrive. They also still get the Microbrew. Then we flush at the end of week 6 with Final Phase. Thats about it. This process if nice and easy with huge results. We aveage 4+ oz per plant under 600w lights. Not too bad. Some gilrs even get over 5 oz. So thanks for reading, Rooster

Yea, another Michigan grower! Lots of wonderful folks here, but no drama. I'll be looking for your grow journals, lol. Subcool has his own section of journals and such for the testers, there is also a large grow journal section. There are some awesome growers and talented photographers here, and it seems like everyone likes a little bud porn. Welcome, Rooster!

Wow what a welcome. Yeah I just figured out why I wasn't able to chat (sorry admin). Thanks Bong. I am working on the journal now so it will be up soon. I have a bunch of pics from other grows past and some of the current flowering girls. Hope to get them posted soon. Also am working on a new game plan to get rid of the hps yellow in my photos. Heard a par of cheap sunglasses will work? If not I will start turning the big lights off for photos. Once again Thanks for the warm welcome and I am already loving this site. Off to get my profile updated and join properly, Rooster

Forgot to mention these girls are starting week 7 on tuesday. Still 2 weeks or so left before harvest and we cant wait. The 2 pics above are Grand daddy purple and this beautiful full figured lady is Obama Kush. Is there anyway to get the 4mb upload limit raised? does it go up with more time and posts? With any camera other than my old crappy one the pics are like 2mb ea so I can only post 2 at a time what a pain. Well heres 2 more lmfao. Hell this one is 3.12 mb so only one gets to go up this time HELP me lol.
