I don't think that is the proper use of the term "trifoliate". I've always heard the term used to refer to the first leaves on the plant that have 3 leaflets.

Im on the southern-most tip of South Africa with my nameless Sativa here. Outdoor grow under the African sun, lovely.

Question is, how many more weeks do you think it is before harvest time? Still a long way to go, I realise that, but I was hoping for a month? Maybe a bit more?

Black liquid stuff... probably not molasses? It does sound like it would be an organic fertilizer. Manure tea like somebody said or else it's some other sort of compost tea. I'm skeptical to call it organic fertilizer because you don't get growth like that with organic matter as opposed to inorganic fertilizers because it's so easy for an organic fertilizer to be deficient in N, P, or K since you can't control what goes into the solution the way you could control it with inorganic solutions.

If it is an organic solution then OP has some prime soil and prime light conditions for that baby to have grown the way it did and we should all move to SA.

I'm not sure what you mean? Bottle organic ferts as well as fermented plant extracts have very predictable nute ratios. Regardless of the ratio, in an organic system, the plant itself controls what nutrients its getting. Starting to get deficient in P? The roots release exudates that stimulates microfauna to start eating the organic material, said fauna then attract predator microbes, and said predator microbes excrete the organic material in a plant soluble form.

Hey /crops/ complete n00b here.

It dawned on me the other day that the area behind my house is probably the best grow spot I'd ever find around here. Of course I know it's too late to plant this year (I live on the northern plains) but I'd like to get the area somewhat prepped for next season.

Here's the deal, the area i have in mind (pictured) is a small area of vegetation directly behind my back yard that is only accessible through either my property or the house to the left of me (which is occupied by three women who never go back there). The area has another benefit in that it's right next to where we've been dumping leaves and grass clippings the past ten years so I have a couple compost piles to work with as well.

Now my questions are thus, should I use weed killer this year to clear a spot or will the chemicals linger and effect plants growing next year? If I were to just take a hatchet to the shrub/tree things growing back there would that be sufficient to kill them or should I uproot them? If I wanted to to make a space for say 5-6 plants how many square feet should I clear? Finally is there anything I should do now to the area to further prep it for next season? Thanks.

You can cover the plant in something rich in sulphur like garlic to repel insects. You can also use something calcium rich like egg shell to repel slugs. Finally you can use lion piss to repel curios mammals, I hear most big cats will do or dog shit I remember someone on here said.

If you actually identify the culprit let us know. Keep going dude!

I highly recommend topdressing with some neemcake/ neem seed meal. This will prevent soil pests, and provide a much more passive way of dealing with insects. Instead of having to come back all the time and spray your plants, the roots will absorb the limonoid compounds in the neem, directly into their tissue.
Neem cake also has a nice NPK profile (3-.02-1) (varies) as well as many vitamins and micronutrients, and stimulates microbe growth.

HOWEVER, systemically absorbed Neem will NOT prevent aphids (root aphids yes, since they have to touch the cake to get to your roots) because aphids feed on a part of the plant that will have a lot lower concentration of liminoids. That's not to say I haven't seen systemic neem be effective against aphids, they just get a much smaller dose compared to leaf feeding pests, such as spider mites.

Hey guys. It's my first time growing a bit for myself and I have a question.
Three plants. One of them has a distinctive smell and the other two don't smell at all. They grew from different seeds, gathered from the nug I got over time. They're not feminised and so my first suspicion was that the other two were males. Don't rly know if the smell would be a valid indicator though.
What's your opinion /crops/? Do I cut the other ones off, or do I let them all grow? If I let them, what would be my first signs of male plants?

Both male and female flowers have a distinctive smell. Female is a more "sweet, heavy" aroma, while male flowers have a sort of...."chlorophylly" scent, in my experience. As for the difference in smells, its probably just different phenotypical expression.

If you haven't started flower yet, then you can't be SURE. However, some strains will put out pre-flowers before you switch to 12/12. My random bagseed has put out female preflowers, and after surviving all of the stress(torture) she was put through since a seedling, I'll definitely be cloning that hardy bitch.

The best advice I can give is google male and female preflowers, how to sex plants, etc. And get a magnifying glass, or jewelers loupe. Female flowers will form a little teardrop shape growth at the nodes (where side stems meet the main stem) and eventually 2 white/transparent hairs will stick out of said teardrop.

These are called the calyx (the teardrop) and the pistil/stigma (hairs), respectively. I hope I could help pal.

So this was going to be my first plant in about a year, I ordered some Auto feminised seeds and poped one of them. The seeds where cheap, (but I'v grown this strain out before) The true leaves are meant to be coming through but instead I've got this.. The growth is tinted purple and has a hair in the middle. Anyone had anything similar?

Looks to be a genetic anomaly.
It appears as though it's gone straight from germination to flowering with no vegetative stages in between.

I'd keep extra special care of that plant, OP. I'd be really interested to see where it goes from there. (Plant Biologist here)
If it did actually go straight from cotyledon to flower, it might be a valuable strain, assuming it's not infertile.

Just a small correction for future reference. You can just say the cotyledon for singular or plural, however the plant is a dicotyledon. Also the cotyledon is the seed leaf which had appeared already. What has now started to form is the true leaves.

I'm setting up my first grow and I wanted some opinions.

I'm growing in a fully insulated loft bedroom room with insulation, insulating foil, plater boards and plaster.
I'm using a 120x120x180 tent with 4 plants in a Willma 4 XL hydro system with 400w or 600w bulb.
I'd be venting my heat through the chimney and through a carbon filter to get rid of the smell and make any heat less suspicious in FLIR fly overs.

What are the chances that a FLIR fly over would spot me and raid me? Is there a way they'd suspect me of anything for chimney heat sig? Does a FLIR only see surface temps or does it see hot air too? Would there be enough heat from a 600w bulb in a cooling tube to make my chimney hot?

Would the heat on my chimney be suspiciously low?

Any help would be appreciated, I thought you guys would have a better grasp of this than most on the site.

I rarely agree with oceangrow but yeah, nobody gets busted because of the power consumption pattern with a single 600W lamp.

Which does not mean it won't get looked at in an ongoing investigation which pretty much always starts somehow else. 99% of busts happen because someone tipps off the police and in 90% of these cases it's somebody close.
The remaining 1% are usually bad luck.

Which is why it's important to be an average Joe in every situation that might end up with the cops talking to you. Don't drive like an idiot for example. Especially if you're a regular smoker, you will always have enough THC in your Blood to get your license revoked (at least in Germany) and if that happens the door is open to more investigations.Also pay your bills and don't get into trouble with banks or insurance companies. Stacking up bills can lead to unexpected visits and strangers in your home. Generally try to avoid visitors if you don't have a separate room.
Don't hang around with fucked up people. THey will draw attention. In my circle of friends NOBODY smokes weed more than twice a year..All of them are very average people, blend in with middle class society perfectly (not meant disrespectful) and have no illegal tendencies.They couldn't break the law if they tried.If you're surrounded by clowns that don't know how to act right outside and let loose inside, your chances of getting busted by proxy for some ridiculous reason increase.The problem is never that your electricity bill is looking odd or that you generate more but the fact that they look at those charts in the first place! Somewhere along the lines you made a mistake and that made you suspicious. Don't senselessly drive around your weed or bong in your car, don't look like shit all the time, don't run your mouth about growing anything at all, make it your secret hobby.

you aren't exactly increasing auxin levels or promoting growth, you are redistributing it so you have a flat canopy, making it easier to get even light to all flowering tips.
An untrained plant has more auxins and growth hormones in the main stem so it grows more like a Christmas tree

To maximize space efficiency in my small dual-chamber closet I'm going to be growing using cyclic cloning (AKA the clone of a clone of a clone method). The problem is that this means that I'll have clones vegging for 8 weeks before I actually switch them to flowering, and the size of my grow closet just doesn't allow for trees. So how can I keep them at a reasonable size during these 8 weeks of vegging?

Trim the branch tips, tuck them shits also, and if things get out of control than trim the roots. When trimming roots don't just lop off shit like a hair cut. Take a razor blade or a sharp knife, and run it DOWN through the roots like a comb. Learn more about root trimming before you try this. A lot more.

I want it to grow quicker/be able to grow it without moving it around to catch the most sun and I was looking at LED lights and reading online about what's suitable for it when I remembered I have an old Lava Lamp that broke but the light is still fine. (Pic Related). I just don't know if this thing has any usable light for the plant.

Can it not go outside? If your area is warm right now, that would give it the most growth. Make sure it's not root bound, and fertilize every 4 weeks or so.

The lava lamp light is probably no good for plants. Wal mart has cheapo $10 grow lamps that would do just fine for a single plant.

oh, and that's 4 weeks at the peak of its growing season. You do a much slower schedule if it's still getting established, or if it's just not growing a ton.

nah I don't want to bring it outside, my area isn't really humid (avg like 40% Humidity outside) and my neighbors are pretty well known for damaging trees/other neighbors plants.

>"and my neighbors are pretty well known for damaging trees/other neighbors plants."

what does that mean? do they just go around stomping flowers and shrubs. I imagine they walk around yelling at trees and making disparaging remarks to bushes..That makes me chuckle lol

made a picture of my salvia an hour ago. right side is on the day i repotted it, left one is today (1 month later). i always have problems keeping it healthy and strong since i'm surrounded by trees that steal all the sun. i also live on the north side of a hill. the plant basically gets a handful of hours of sun maximum in summer and pretty much no direct sunlight in winter. salvia is a master of survival in my experience though. i bought it about 8 years ago and there were times when it looked almost dead but it always came back. it worked through low to almost no light, shitty soil with no nutrition, parasites, low temperatures and drought.
