These hempy methods are really neat!
Surely something to look at for the avid mickey-mouser

Hi Tapi. You're right. MW grows mega weed. And I'm a mickey mouser that grows weed like this too...

If I can do it anyone can.

I'm gonna flip the hb's I got going in veg atm. Can't wait til that finishes as its gonna be my last grow for a while.

@BullDogDad. Your od hb's are really nice. I bet you can't wait til they finish

wow ganja man1;
you get that kind of gnarly top action under a 400W?
Flawless victory!!!!

I am envious of your sorcery as well

I hope you will only put your garden aside for a temporary moment and that all is well on your end.Sometimes people need a break from their routines and rituals and that's that.

Peace g_m1 !
Thanks for sharing your hempy buckets experience with us (your Shark thread was fun too) and thanks for inspiring all who dream to go big with "smaller" lamps (just a figure of speech...400W can be pretty bright !)

GM those are insane spears!! As you may know I am starting an indoor grow and now am thinking I should follow the Hempy method as well or at least add some of the hempy buckets to my usual soil buckets....

I have just flipped these 4 bushes...



In a 3x3 space atm under the 250. In about 10 days they'll be in a 4x3 space under the 400w. They'll love that extra space coz its a bit crowded atm.

Thanks GanjaMan. Those MW grew great but I ended up losing them to the cold. I got lazy and didn't take measure to protect them. They made some heady oil though.

I used the small perlite but I've started to see people are using the larger perlite chunks. Seems like the larger chucks might drain a little better. Anybody have a preference for one or the other? Hempy where you at?

Hempy is semi retired I do believe, taking things easy and resting with a phat mango haze hanging from his mouth lol.

Now then, these hb's are stretching under the 250. Just 12 days since the flip and already they're throwing out some decent baby bud...

After I've harvested the rest of the 400w cab tonight, these will be taking their place.

Man i miss hempy... Hope your doing well sir wherever you are!!

The huge xlarge perlite is too chunky imo... Big gaps and it dries out insanely fast.. Probably would be ok if you mix vermiculite with it...

I run straight perlite... The large size... Its nice and chunky so its not dusty and doesnt fly around out of the pots but small enough to create a solid rootzone...

Mother nature (or maybe mother earth) size 3 to be exact... Size 4 is too big and size 2 makes a big mess... 3 is perfect...

Nice plants as always ganja bud
