    Default Let me introduce myself

    I am 63 years old and have been growing cannabis indoors since I was 17 years old.

    I don't wish to brag, but I have more experience than most people on these forums.

    I have some very interesting things I'd like to share with you and I guess this is the best place to say them.

    Default 3 Things that have yet to be spoken about

    My first tale will be about the dreaded "microwave", the second about "360'o" Growing and the third is about "Jack's Pot"; a revolutionary way to grow plants hydroponically!

    But one at a time....

    THE MICROWAVE

    We've all heard the horrible stories of what happens if you use microwaves to dry your herb and they are all true.

    There is a way to use microwaves without those "5/10 sec bursts" nuking the bud and ruining the taste and worse still setting it alight!

    Set microwave to lowest setting (usually defrost) and place the herb on tissue, next to half a cup of water. Because microwave like water they will nuke the water instead, taking the heat off of the herb.

    It's based on the principle "the more in the oven the longer it takes to cook". By using this method and reducing the water level with each refresh (water gets hot), you cn increaase the amount of heat!

    The results? Fresh smelling and very potent. Not the best way, but certainly a must for microwaving.

    Let me know if you have anymore questions.

    Welcome brother, I remember growing some spindly ugly looking plants under those old maybe t7s is that what they were those 4-ft fluorescents. I knew some guys that were going out and getting some kind of commercial lights and taking the globe off of them and somehow getting it to work but not me.
