    Region: northern california inland
    Landscape: 10degree sloped 1/4 acre lots of tall pines
    Breeder: cali starts
    Strain: blue dream
    Success/failure?: Success
    Major problem: not a strong plant against mites
    Finish date:late. like LATE. november 20th.
    Comments: this plant will grow a bit fluffy in shadier places. i have to say, if you want quality over quantity... abuse it. late season let it droop once or twice and it just blows out with trichomes. yeilded about .5 pounds in a 15 gallon pot (cheap plastic, not a smartpot)

    I have also heard of growers who cut sections of soda straws and split them down the side then open them up and put them around the stem like a collar. This apparently stops the bug from wrapping around the stem . Pushing it into the soil a little helps and keeps it in place..Hope this helps..: )

    Hello, I am a Michigan outdoor grower.
    I have been growing for roughly 25 yrs. This year I decided to try and grow the Monkey Paw strain. I have 12 plants going 2 are Monkey Paw, they are all in their 7th week of flowering. My question is? 1 of my monkey Paw plants hairs has already changed to red. I have no means of looking for the Amber color. I have always went by when over 75% of the hairs have changed its ready. But this one throws me off, no knowledge of how this strain grows. Is this normal? Normally my harvest wouldn't be done until mid to late October. I hate to kill it if it's not ready yet. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks in advance..
