Lol, ive never really noticed them much, but the horse fly's this year were insane... Not only were there tons of them, but they were huge! Worst I've ever seen them.

Deer flies are pesky a-holes, that have a super painful bite.  Like miniature horseflies, but they hurt just as bad when they get you.  And they follow you around, relentlessly...
Kill them always.  No benefit, whatsoever. (unless you're a masochist)

Thanks Solid!

Any info on these guys I found in July?c243ec0a757f70fcdecfe25fd61c5876.jpg1dd8a6e745196d612c47b02e37c2aa43.jpg


#1574223 What to do with used expensive media

Posted by U)<now on 08 August 2018 - 05:26 PM

So since I have a winter to go thru at the end of the season, are you saying that you preprepare your containers and let em chill until ready to use next season? After adding the 1/3 new mix? Or do you let the filtered stuff store over the winter and mix it up and fill containers next season?

I pull the old plants, and leave the old media in the containers over winter until spring, then about a week before I plan on potting out, I dump the old media onto the tarp and mix in the new stuff.

Yeah, I knew it would definitely be good for several more runs-at least!
Where should I put it and how should I process it as far as separating from root mass, sterilizing, etc?

Sent from my XT1565 using Tapatalk

Yep, I re-use my mix as well. I have been doing basically what solid said, adding about 30% fresh mix each season.

I just pull the old plants out and any larger roots that may have broke off and still be in the soil. Then dump it all out on a tarp in the yard, mix it up and chop up the finer roots with a shovel while mixing. Then I add in the new mix and continue mixing. After that, it goes back in the pots. I've never sterilized any yet, but it does get down to about 30f below zero by me in the winter occasionally, so I think that kills off any nasties.

The Growdown plant made it! That's a 100 gallon bag. We had a lot of weeds after 9 days plus of sprinkler watering.



Wow! That growdown plant is huge! The rest of the garden is looking pretty awesome as well.

What are you going to do with all those pods ....

Haha. I make salsa's, hot sauces, spicy vodka for Bloody Mary's and dehydrate some for dried powders. I'll also freeze some as well for use in cooking later on. :party: :fire:

Couple of Aji Pineapple... One got half munched by deer a bit earlier, so it's smaller with less pods, the other is doing much better...

I hit this guy little too hard with the nutes about a month ago. It dropped all it's leaves, but managed hang on to the 3 pods it had and they are starting to ripen.

CPR, from seeds from a plant I gave to a friend last season. That one produced more true to pheno pods that were chocolate. We'll see what it puts out this year...

7 pot lava with some curly growth on top from a third branch coming off. Leaves and all look normal, just has a weird curl to it, I think maybe one of the leaves was hung up on a lower leaf or branch initially...

The CPR "Red Grenade" plants this year... Kept two. For anyone new to my glog, these were supposed to be Chocolate Primo Reapers last year, but the only plant I kept, turned out to have long red bumpy pods. These two plants came from open pollinated seeds from that plant last fall. One is a "normal" plant with shorter pods this year, and the other is hairy. The hairy trait must have been a recessive trait that decided to show itself. I don't have any
pubescens plants and never have yet, so it's pretty interesting...
