what about expanding the straighter method, to using a hot sandwich press ?

straighter didn't work - wear gloves if trying - just ended up with flat dry nugs

Got some plants from a friend, he has been growing them for about a month in a window sill. I told him it's not the right season to plant outside, he said it's a weed and will grow and flower anytime of the year, you won't get that big of a yield.

Should I go ahead and plant them outside or can I leave them in the window sill?

Anyone help me - I was told today that spraying your plants in flower, with H2O2 ( for powdery mildew ) would cause oxidation on the heads and the THC to change to CBN

Thats what GTHydro salesman told me ...I havnt been able to find anything on the web about it. I know you are supposed to spray the leaves only, but its hard not to spray the heads in the process

Is it the little green and brown worms? I see them on my plants but don't see any damage from them. Do they eat the fan leaves or the bud leaves?

Small green caterpillars - they bore into a head, then that part of the head dies.IMG_9892.JPG

I also have a lot of heads turning brown on my plants, I cut a five litre bucket's worth off now. I thought it was bud rot but was confused as my plants aren't that wet here in the Cape. I'll kill the little buggers from now on.
