So I am going to start growing my own stash for personal use, because having to buy is becoming more of a hassle when you live in a fairly dry area and your closest connection is over 20 miles away. I have watched multiple videos and tutorials, and even read some articles on proper growing techniques. I want to ask anyone else here that grows what they do for their crops and what fertilizers and other little tricks they do for a good harvest.

I agree with the previous poster on almost everything, but the 5 day darkness in the end. It's really not necessary and in my own experiments has done nothing for the trichome coverage.

Thank you very much! I've seen bud grow with standard CFL bulbs. Do you think that those are good to use? I'm a college student living at home right now, so I don't have a whole lot of money to spend.

>During flowering you need to keep it completely dark while the lights are off or it will start producing seeds.

That's like 25% true. You can't have seeds without pollen. Light leaks during the dark period stress plants to the point where they hermie and self-pollinate.

yeah CFLs are fine, if you run Y socket splitters on a power strip you can get six lights on a single power strip, so if you're using like 24w bulbs (with 1600 lumen bulbs you're getting close to 10,000 lumens which is very bright). use the right color temp of lights tho.

I grew weed one time before when a friend thrust some plants upon me with no equipment or knowledge of what the fuck I was doing. I ended up buying a couple of 125watt CFL's, one 6500k and the other 2700k, as well as a few 25watt CFL's for extra support. Had I been a more knowledgeable grower I would have been able to get about twice as much bud out of those lights, but what I did get was still more than enough to keep my girlfriend and I from paying for weed for three months.

>>140631 pretty much covered everything. I got most of my info from groweedeasy. It really was easy following their guides and my weed was exceptional quality absolutely 9.5/10.

hey guys.

a mate of mine has got a small crop on, just 4 auto lowriders, just a little personal grow. as of monday he'll be on week 5, and it looks they're just starting to bud.

this weekend however, he's going to a festival, so there'll be no-one at the house. theyre currently on an 18/6 light cycle, but he's thinking its too risky to leave this on while he's out saturday and sunday.

my friend reckons if he just turns the lights off from when he's gone until he's back (worked out as about 30 hours of missed light), it won't have an affect on the plants. I just want to check that this is correct and wont fuck up his grow, as he has trouble finding weed himself and needs it medicinally.

will leaving it without light for the 30 hours have an adverse (or any kind of) effect on the plants?

Autoflowering strains don't usually mind strange light schedules. If anything it'll probably kickstart the plant into flowering.

sup crops, i grow stuff (lettuce, tomatoes, etc) but i've never grown weed before.
its legal for me to grow but the summer season is closing quickly, i got until about oct 15 to harvest anything around here.
so i germinated my collection of seeds and planted them as soon as i could and i now have 4 plants of unknown gender getting their first day in the sun.
plz give advice for how to go about this or good links.
i have google open in another tab of course, but humans know more than google

also i was wondering if i should just go out and buy clones or whatnot instead.
i live in vancouver, wa so i'm sure i could buy some, when where and how much does that cost. another possibility would be to start them outside and then finish them inside. i don't have an indoor grow, but i have space for one and if it don't cost to much i'd be into checking out setting something up.

I just bought a grow box recently and the instructions say to rinse the carbon before you put it in the filter.

Why bother? It's not going to go into an aquarium filter.

What happens if I don't rinse it? Does it just expel some dust as it runs?

Hi guys,

for the last 4 years I have been growing my own weed. 2 years outside in a green house and 2 years in a grow tent inside. I freaking loved it. Not only that I got free weed but also the keeping the healthy and daily caring part. It was a great hobby but because I Am moving into student housing(Netherlands) I wont be able to grow weed anymore because of the smell. I Am not really interested in micro growing at the moment but who knows.

What I Am rather looking into is something I can grow that wont smell as bad as weed, gets my high in a way I like and is fun to grow and needs some maintenance. I am really into /psy/s too so I thought about cacti growing. Its looks really fun but they tent to take years to grow. Mushrooms also look quite fun to grow but don't really need any maintenance and I don't like the trip as much as I like cacti(mescaline) or LSD.

Are there any other cool /psy/s to grow?

Deep Waterfall Culture by James Bluvingchadge - Fri, 21 Aug 2015 20:37:42 EST ID:Uvz+9bjD No.140607 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply
1440203862157.png -(24023 B, 708x663) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size. 24023
So I've been reading some stuff about deep water cultures, and from what I've gathered, very little of the oxygen exchange from the air to the water happens while the bubbles are submerged in the water. The main way oxygen gets dissolved into the water is from the surface. The bubbles serve two purposes, they get fresh air into the grow chamber(useful if it's mostly sealed except for a small hole for the stem), and they churn the water at the top when they break the surface allowing for more water to be exposed to the air. Apparently the bubbles are not only not necessary, but they can actually be a bad thing because they can allow certain airborne pathogens that cause root rot to thrive.

People have done successful grows without the use of air stones, instead using some way to stir up the water at the surface like flooming where they shoot a jet of water towards the top of the reservoir (but not so much that it turns into a fountain although that also works). Even just any pump that causes circulation of the water allows for more of it to be exposed to oxygen at the top and increases levels of dissolved oxygen.

So that got me thinking of other ways you could do this, and I struck upon pic related. Essentially you have your normal bucket or whatever, and a second reservoir right next to it with a submerged pump in it. The pump pumps the water from the second reservoir into the main one causing the water level to rise. A little cutout is placed near the top of the side closest to the second reservoir and the water flows out of it and falls into the second chamber.

This waterfall agitates the water in the second chamber and allows it to be fully oxygenated. It also hopefully will help cool the water which helps increase dissolved oxygen levels because the colder the water is, the more oxygen it can hold. A pump does increase the temperatures of the water slightly so hopefully this would be a little better than putting your pump directly in your main chamber with your roots.

What do you guys think? Personally I like the idea of having a nice little water feature running while my weed grows.

I've tried different types of hydroponics, the only times I've had root rot was when I didn't use air pumps and air stones.

It's seriously not a good idea to grow without an air pump. DWC is a very popular method and works really well. I'd even have air stones in my Ebb n Flood reservoirs.

so this is my first time stumbling onto /crops/ and i have some very basic newb questions i would like answered from people who have successfully grown and harvested, without being told "google it" or "lurk moar". im aware of those options but i want some user feedback, so please bare with me or just skip over this thread if you are going to be upset that im new here.

>for somebody with little to no agricultural knowledge, how "easy" is growing and harvesting marijuana? what is the success rate like for someone who is informed on the process?
>how viable is growing in a small closet, approximately 2' x 3.5' in area? or rather, what is the smallest enclosed space a plant can grow in good health?
>what is a ballpark estimate for the cheapest, yet still efficient and successful, method of growing?

im sure these questions get asked a ton here, so thanks for potentially answering a few repeat basics.

Hey guys quick question about boomers.

So these boomers have reached maturity, but have yet to be harvested.
The problem is that they dont look like the pictures. They are Golden Teachers. Instead of having a nice golden top, they are white and dark blue.
They are NOT black. So I dont think its mold as they are growing just fine.

The only thing I can think of is the habitat is TOO humid and should not be misted as much. Anyone have experience with this? Are they still safe? The humidity is constantly at 99%.

Sup guys. I want to ask for help. I grew one plant, (~2-3 weeks), at day took it outside, watered irregularly, then put it under 3 CFL lamps and it started getting white at the edges and got brown later. Then my cat came, shat in that pot and that plant is dead.
So I have one more seed. only ONE. I dont want to fuck it up with this one. I've got a box (w 50cm x l 70cm h x80cm) painted matte white inside and 5 CFLs (6500kelvin 15w 900lumen). Can I put just newly grown plant (photo) under them? How many lamps should work? When to water? I've read alot but i cant understand shit, please can someone guide me?
