Just as a shoutout - HydroKronic (@hydrokronicza on Instagram) is hitting me up with a quote for a full indoor grow op. They'll be sourcing all materials and such, so maybe hit them up if you're keen but dont know where to start :)

Nice man! I have actually chilled with the owner of hydrokronicza and he is quite the business man.

If I could give you some advice. Sun, water and nutrients is everything. Get yourself some Seagrow from your local spar, ensure your plants get enough sun/light and maybe try and find a different source of water rather than using tap water.

There are various companies in SA that supply seeds. Tbh, it's very expensive buying seeds. The advantage though, is the fact that you're 100% guaranteed that it will be a female and above that you can specify if you want "auto-flower" seeds.

I will supply some links tonight to local places that sell seeds.

Where do you "buy" or "obtain" the seeds\plants in the first place ?
According to the law, buying or trading is still illegal so I don't really know how we supposed to get them legally, maybe find them in the bushes...:unsure:

Perhaps all links to shops / sellers etc can be listed in the OP, that way in weeks to come ppl don't have to sift through the entire thread.

Have you heard of the story, "Jack and the bean stork"

Where did he get his beans from? :ROFLMAO:

Ok so here's my thought (although my knowledge is only so-so): You know the female plants grow seeds if there's a male plant within a bazillion miles? What's going to happen now that every oak and his auntie is growing? They won't know whether they have a male plant until it's way too late, so the semi-pro grower next door gets a whole lot of unwanted seeds...right?

Some plants I grew throughout the year. All of them where grown outdoor and I have had yields of close to 500g per tree!

I mostly use this to make oils as I know a lot of people that use the oil for medicinal purposes. Heck! My dog had intense cancer (doctors said it was over) and I gave him some oil for about a week. The vet couldn't believe how the cancer just "vanished". Fyi, the dog was so baked he couldn't even stand up to go and pee. It's been 3 years now and he's up and about everyday.

I removed my face from the pictures as I don't want pictures of myself all over the net standing next to these trees.

In the first few pictures, you will see that the "bud density" was amazing. This was a normal "sativa" & "hybrid" strain. Plz also note that the pictures where taken when the buds where slightly trimmed. Afterwards they were trimmed down nicely and left to cure.

In the last picture, you will notice the tree is as high as the roof. I'm 1.81M tall and I felt like a dwarf next to it. The photo was taken when the tree was in it's growing phase and has not yet entered flowering phase. IMG_20180607_134146.jpegIMG_20180607_134153.jpegIMG_20180926_144140.jpegIMG_20180926_144312.jpeg
