OK it could be worse
    #4035933 - 04/10/05 01:51 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I made an earlier post about being dissapointed by the size of my amazonians... First post

This is what I saw this morning:


Then I took a nap and another picture:


What I failed to take into account was the density of the flush:

I must have picked 500 shrooms! (or it felt like that at least)

We figured that my amazons were small because of my shallow substrate, and I was pretty bummed out.  But my mood soon changed after the harvest: 370 g (after cleaning:tongue2:

Nice flush. Go for a sub about 3 inches deep - next time. My old rule of thumb is 2.5 Min & 4.5 Max. You can go deeper, but you don't get that much more with cubes.

Also, sometimes with a Maxi pin set, first flush is tight togather, with smaller fruits. Second flush, with less Shrooms..... is when the BIG  :mushroom2: boys - appear.

Below is about 4th or 5th flush & only a few, but note the one with the BIC lighter on it. If i recall right, that one shroom was in the 125g range.

Nice avatar...just arrived home and i dosed everybody w/3.5 dry
This outta be a cool night ...
In the attic lies
Voices scream
Nothing?s seen
Real?s a dream

Leaving the things that are real behind
Leaving the things that you love from mind
All of the things you learned from fears
Nothing is left for the years

Voices scream
Nothing?s seen
Real?s a dream

Uncle Salty told me when she was just a baby
that she'd get by and maybe someday she'd see
but soon she found her mother's love for all the others
the pushers and the shovers was the life to lead
but when she cried at night, no one came
and when she cried at night, went insane


--------------------
Come to Paw Paws place there will be no sleeping tonight

Eric just wants to catch reds ..
Don?t look back, don?t look back
He?s right on your trail
Don?t look back, don?t look back
He?s just a step away from hell

Dude, I'm no fan of poetry, but that shit is brilliant.

Thanks for the advice, agar, I won't forget it!

Here's a bonus, because I'm feeling creative, not to mention the fact that I've probably eaten 70 g wet.

Amazons were short IME. Even in 3 inch thick straw. I got 5 inches of straw with them pinning now though. We'll see how big those get. I doubt very tall. But they were HEFTY and solid...very nice strain IMO.
