Any canadian outdoor growers up for swapping tricks?
I grew a couple plants indoors a few years plus i know enough plant bio to know how plants like to live but what im curious about is things like climate and location. My rough idea is to just find some crown land in the north way in the boonies (in ontario) then get a few strains of seeds, assume some will be duds, and just go for strength in variation. Id check on them ever once and a while but for the most part Id want to be able to just let them do their thing. like last time this would just be a personal supply/fun thing to learn so im not looking to do anything crazy/large scale, more just a few plants scattered here and there. Id look for fairly fertile, soft, and moist ground (i remember how much water these fuckers drank near the end of the season), and go for areas which are semi shaded yet still have lots of of direct sunlight during the day (im thinking of small clearing in forests or the like). What do you guys think? decent plan? idiotic plan? love to hear any suggestions

alright you should look for strains that suit your location but I guess you thought about that already
look for a slope facing south so your plants are getting optimum light
look out for the soil if you are unsure you can always dig a hole and change it with quality shit
get some knowledge about plants that indicate the quality of the soil like stinging nettles will grow on nitrogen rich soil or that conifers usually means that the soil is quite acidic to name two examples
also look out for animales and slugs

Give me the skinny on all things LED. I want to have a good grow lamp, I'd like to avoid the heat plumes and the high energy cost of HIDs. I have a small outdoor shed that is in risk of getting too hot. Even with fans, I'd like to avoid the extra heat of HID lamps.

So what am I looking for? Is this even possible? I've had some veteran growers tell me that LEDs are useless and a waste of money for growing weed. Why might that be? A full spectrum grow lamp is what I'm after, right? One site even told me that I should get a LED set up with UV lights--wouldn't that hurt the plant more than anything else?

Hello /crops/ I wasn't sure if this thread should be here or under psychedelic drugs, but I just wanted to play it safe since it's more related to the growing of magic mushrooms. First off, I just want to say that I've never grown anything in my life other than bean plants in middle-school, so I'm not up to par with agricultural terms and whatnot.

Anyway, I want to grow magic mushrooms and I'm considering buying a grow kid from Midwest Growkits. I just want to hear what you guys have to say about this. Is it gonna work? Is it safe? is there maybe another growkit dealer that's better? Any suggestions while growing? etc. etc. Any thoughts on the subject is appreciated :)

pic related, it's the kit i'm planning to buy. the "Simple Mushroom Grow Kit" from midwestgrowkits

Hm. They look ok, and I'll tell you why; those look like pinheads that are forming into fruiting bodies, which are smashing against the side of the glass.
Still, there's always a possibility that it's an infection.
My advice is to wait a few days. You'll know if they're pinheads, because they'll look like mushrooms starting to smash against the glass.
This image is the perfect example. If those spots start looking like this, scrape em off when you birth em. If the colouration just kind of spreads, without taking a cap form, it's infected, and would be wise to toss.

Just to get a bit of insight, around how many ounces (if an ounce at all) of edible shrooms can be yielded from 6 cakes assuming they are flushed 4 times each?
Leprechronic !ypaJvP0mRQ - Tue, 24 Feb 2015 16:56:15 EST ID:lFXK4B7W No.138522 Ignore Report Quick Reply
Well, good luck getting 4 flushes; cakes usually don't last that long. Six cakes, at 3 flushes each, might get you somewhere between 14g to an ounce and a half. Honestly, it's really hard to say with PF tek. Conditions are somewhat difficult to manage. I find it easier with more cakes; I had a chamber with 12 half pint cakes for my first grow, and got about 2 flushes out of each cake before mold started taking hold. I got roughly 2 ounces.

I don't like to do PF tek anymore, because of its unreliable yields, and how maintaining you have to be about those conditions. Don't get me wrong; I can get the most stubborn of cakes to fruit, but the effort compared to the yield is just pitiful compared to a monotub bulk grow. But I digress; once you birth those cakes, let me know if you've got problems, and I can help you. As for the yield? That's going to be completely variable. Cakes that were about an inch or less apart from each other pinned and fruited more than cakes that were farther from each other or the sides (which is why I find more cakes to be easier, because they're much closer to each other). The reason is the microclimate that is created between the cakes; more humidity is required for pins to form.

You could get awesome results if you'd get proper lights. CDMs, PL-Ls, LEDs.. basically anything that isn't CFL.

Yes, CFLs make your buds have more trichome coverage than say a HPS, but CFL buds are never as potent as buds grown under high light intensity.

That is true, however to a certain extent light can pass through the tubes to the other side. Yes some of it gets absorbed but not all of it or they would be completely useless.

PL-Ls are way better then household CFLs. They aren't more expensive if you buy them at the right place.

Weed got way too expensive where I live and I'm going to start to grow. The thing is, I've got everything I need except I don't know how to install the lights in it and I haven't been able to find a decent tutorial. I'm gonna go buy all my shit in the afternoon, I'll post some pictures later when my box is ready (80x60x80) and I'll buy and install the lights in the afternoon.
I need to start this week if I wanna have something for vacations in January and February.

but now a month after flowing, leaves are turning yellow from the bottom up.

This has grown very slowly, but not bad as a first attempt.

the other one however, the one that got crushed by a cat food bowl as a seedling, is about half the height, but much thicker and bushier.

a few burnt tips are actually light burns from when it grew too fast one night and was touching the lightbulbs before I woke up.

It depends on how you want to grow.
You basically have two options: All year long (preferably) in a custom build box with an extra motherplant/clone section or once a year (preferably) in a tent from fem seeds or bought clones.

The most popular option is a 400W HPS with a tent, once a year, costs about $500 with the basic stuff.
If you want more variety build a box with 250W HPS and 2x24W T5 for clones/bonsai mums. Costs vary, but don't try to get it cheaper than the $500 figure.
Things you should buy in high quality are: Reflector, Carbon Filter, Fan, Ballast, Soil
Things you can save money on: Reflective walls (White paint works fine), Bulbs (a most basic HPS /T5 bulb works just as fine), Nutrients and stuff (the premium stuff is just for bragging rights, and cheap nutrients are easier to use as a beginner), Pots and other planting related stuff.

Hey guys, first time grower here. I planted an auto ak seed a while ago, 3 weeks must have passed since that moment. The plant is quite allright, but I have a couple of concerns.
Is it ok for the plant to get 15 centimeters high in 3 weeks? Isn't that slow? Btw, the plant already has female sex signs.
Leaves are broad and healthy, but couple of them are bent. They used to be like that since they appeared, and they are grown now, they seem ok, but does this mean that I'm doing something wrong?

>it has nothing to do with genetics
Well, yes and no. It's like this;

Seed A has strong genetics. It was breed for high THC production, high yield, etc. Seed A is being handled by an amateur; the amateur gives the seed improper nutrients, lighting, etc. While not a bad job, it was clear the rookie could have done better; Seed A has produced about high-mid grade bud.

Seed B has poor genetics; THC production is naturally low, yield is poor, etc. However, Seed B is under the care of a master, and the master gives Seed B the best environment is could possibly have. Seed B produces a high-mid grade bud.

Switch the seeds between the growers, so the rookie has Seed B and the master has Seed A, and you've got radically different grades of bud, the master producing the "someone-shat-in-my-face" smelling bud, while the rookier harvested something barely smokeable.

These are purely hypothetical situations I'm presenting; I'm trying to frame Nature Vrs. Nurture (genetics vrs. environment) into a way that works into the conversation. That said, if some bud is being grown to smoke, it probably has fairly sound genetics; the seeds from some Mexican brick can turn into passable dro; the mother simply had a poor environment in which to try and produce in. But you're much better off using seeds bred over generations of careful selection. Genetics doesn't have nothing to do with it, because it's basically the mapped potential of an individual organism for anything that it can possibly achieve.

Just had a few quick questions, going to try my first grow outdoors the a UK similar climate.

  • Do i need a special lamp to put a 125w CFL bulb in
  • I plan on starting them in a Dome Propagator (they will be auto-flowering) at what point should i start taking them outside, i will then bring them in over night, how long should i do this before i then leave them outside all the time as not to shock them.
  • Any tips will be very appreciated such as good outdoor uk strains, looking for indica high THC autoflowering fems.

I don't have much experience, but im pretty sure that its not a very good idea to take them back inside once you have taken them outside.
Do you take them into your backyard or out in to the woods or something?
Autos tend to finish before photosensitive strains, so you can just take them outside when you're sure that the weather is warm enough at night.
Bomb Seeds claims that their Berry Bomb is very mold resistant, so it's suited for colder climates. Also its autoflowering.
I live in a colder climate than UK, and I was planning on getting Think Different, Auto Berry Bomb, Auto THC Bomb, maybe some Lowryders and some random auto strains from local hippies that have good genetics for outdoors.
Not even going to bother with photosensitive strains.

if you are going to outdoor grow do it the entire duration. If you are going to indoor, do it the entire duration. Moving the plant between conditions is hazardous to the plant and will result in delayed growth and also may result in death.
