New Old Grower

Hello all, new to the site - came across it via Chad Westport's show on Future Cannabis Project with @macky , @monkeydo and @bubblehok (who all did a great job)
I'm definitely of the older generation, I'm in the UK, been smoking weed mostly daily for well over 40 years, and actually, I've been growing continuously for 27 years now on a very small scale. My first grow was Sensi Seeds Superskunk in 1995.

I'm not going to be a great fount of wisdom though, for most of the time I've just been bumbling along doing the same old thing, not paying that much attention. It's only in the last 2 or 3 years that I've been trying to learn about plant science and how everything works, and trying to really step up quality. Interested to see what you up-to-date people are doing these days. 🙂 

Like most people, I didn't keep anything from the early days - I think the Seedsman Mama Thai from 2008 is the earliest I've got. It was chopped at 18 weeks. Third pic is an LA Confidential from DNA from a while ago.

@dragonfire Welcome to Percys mate! Always good to see growers of any caliber make their way over and join the community. I come from a background of old head growers and only when I decided I wanted to go all in on the hobby did I really start researching and reaching out of my comfort zone so I understand the trudging along and not paying as much attention vibe 🤣. Glad you enjoyed the show, Chad is awesome and always good to chat with. Looks like you have had some fun successful grows already, keen to see what's next for you. Anything you need just let us know and have a good look around, plenty to see and do here Smile

I feel like a, like a slice of butter... melting on top of a big-ol' pile of flapjacks... yeah.

@dragonfire, welcome to Percy's man, glad you made it. I haven't been growing that long but I did buy my first seeds from Sensi Seeds in Amsterdam in 1995, you and I could have been in there together at the same time! Wow. LOL           Take a look around and give a shout if you have any questions.

  Thumbs Up

Thanks for the welcome everyone.

@bubblehok I'll catch some more of the podcasts as well - looks like there's interesting stuff there.

Thanks for looking in @artmann

@gelert Gelert, the faithful hound! You may be from my part of the world.

Thanks @monkeydo, being an OG sounds like a kushy number. 😆 

Thanks @macky I dare say there's odds and ends I've picked up over the years that may be useful.

@woodi2 Actually bought my first seeds in London. Got the train to London, went to the seed shop and paid cash. Didn't get to Amsterdam till a while later.

Thanks for that @philmebowls , I've found some more pics as well now.

@stootie I'll get going on a grow diary soon - I've got a scrog of Royal Kush from Emerald Mountain Legacy a couple of weeks into flower at the moment.

 

Couldn't find a folder with a few pics in last night but got it now. These are from about 2 - 6 years old -

First is the WiFi - White Fire OG from OG Raskal, next is a Tahoe OG from Cali Connection, next 2 are a scrog of Gelato 33 from Concrete Jungle Seeds, last one is my own F1 of Lot No5 Evolution from Oldtimer1 crossed to Gorilla Glue#4 bx4 from Mycotek Seeds.
