When to throw out a tub?
    #6673991 - 03/15/07 08:30 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Hi, my friend is very pleased with her first grow. She picked flush number 4 today. It is still producing pins, and the 4th flush had many many mushrooms although some seemed hollow near the top, although the fruits were huge. Does the hollowing mean the cake is about spent, or should she let it flush again? There are still pins. How do you know when the flush should be the last flush?

When performance falls off or contamination sets in. Pf cakes tend to flush more times than bulk substrates which deliver most of their punch in the first two flushes.

Ok, well I guess performance is still strong enough then. It's pinning and stuff still coming up. Was her first grow also, and was a bulk grow. I guess I'll let her know to throw it out. This flush only produced half of the past 3. For some reason, the third was the largest, but I think it's because she kept it in it's chamber longer. Here's a picture of the first 3 flushes dried, minus what she ate with her friends:





Sorry to ask, but what would you guys say is a safe estimate of the weight? She can't buy a scale in her country. Thanks.

I'd say that weighs a bit, give or take a little.

Honestly, I'm not sure anyone here is going to be able to make a call like that from a photo. It sure is pretty though. What country is she in that she cant buy a scale?

Can't buy a scale? But scales are used for so much in this world. How can that be so?

They are hard to find. I don't understand either, it blows my mind.

It is a pretty shade of blue though. Is the penis envy strain if anyone was curious.

That's actually a broken harddrive, for the broken 360. She bought a clear 360 and 360 controller case, as well as led's to mod the control and it's buttons, and the 360 case, some more efficient and quieter fans, a heatsink to help with heating issues, and plans on doing the firmware hack like I did to my friends. She is going to purchase a new one from walmart, put the new internals in the clear 360 case, and return the old internals in the new 360 case. Shady, but she's just doing what the owner of the broken 360 should have done.

Yah, PE is the only strain you can ID by looks alone.  I had fun growing it myself, my fruits didn't reach massive sizes, but they were as dense as a rock when they dried.

*edit- didn't know lana's site sold scales.  This one weighs up to 300 gms and is only 30 bucks :smile:*
