Hey thanks bud!! Appreciate the kind words! Yes this is exactly what i am trying to accomplish in the articles i am writing...make it easy to understand for anyone regardless of experience or skill level. I am a hands on kind of guy, and when something i am reading gets too scientific I kind of phase out. But hands on practical work I pick up really well, and thats the style of growing I want to teach. It doesn't have to be uber complicated at all.What's up @912GreenSkell? I just finished the "Weak Link" post, as I told you I would, and I have to say that it is a pretty great read brother! (but I'm a 912 fan already) I read the entire thing (the post, not the thread) and I would say that even for someone new to the grow arts, it's a very easy, straight forward read.
Overstep boundaries? No way bud!! This is exactly why i was trying to get you to read the article!! I am not closed minded in any way, and i appreciate feedback and especially bouncing back and forth with other seasoned vets. That is a great point about sativas, and i will add it in. If you see anything else you think should be added, let me know!! I want this article to be perfect and complete. Edited in your suggestion below.I would add something to a point that you made, actually it will add to 2 of your points. You covered [HASHTAG]#7[/HASHTAG]:Excess Heat and [HASHTAG]#10[/HASHTAG]: High Humidity. This comment is basically for any new growers, but for anyone facing these specific issues. I've found that the strains that do work best in both these situations are pure sativas, or more sativa leaning hybrids. It makes sense, since they mostly originate in that exact environment. I hope I didn't overstep the boundaries brother, just thought that this info could be helpful. You and anyone else, feel free to do the same on any of my threads here. Again brother 912, I enjoyed the read. I also have to spread the rep, but I will definitely be back to rep this one.
7 Excess Heat - If your climate is too hot, plants will often have elongated nodes and also heat induced hermaphrodites are a possibility. Buds in extreme heat often fail to produce very well and are often stretched, airy buds lacking in density. If you are rocking an indoor grow, and your temperature is 90F or higher, do what you can to lower it or buds might suffer. Some strains seem to do just fine in hot temps. As a general rule, pure Sativa's, and Sativa dominant plants handle excessive heat better than those of Indica's due to their often far south lineage and decades of naturally climatizing to heat.
10 High humidity - High humidity has a much greater impact than low humidity will cause. Plants in high humidity (60%+) will grow great, but the problem with a high humidity is potential mold. Indoors, it's often easy to work around due to Dehumidifiers. Outdoors, you are at the mercy of mother nature on this one. If you are in high humidity outdoors, I would suggest trying to find a location that is as windy as possible. Heavily increased circulation will lessen the impact of a high humidity. As a general rule, pure Sativa's, and Sativa dominant plants handle excessive high humidity better than those of Indica's due to their often far south lineage and decades of naturally climatizing to high humidity, as well as their more open structure and elongated nodes will will allow for more circulatory airflow.
