Noticed some discolorations on some of my leaves, anyone know what could be causing this? I recently tested the pH of my water at around 8.2, I'm assuming this could be part of the problem? Thanks everyone

I was about to plant some seeds and realised that I don't have any coir, which I like to add to my seedling mixes. Is it essential to a good seedling mix or can I use a substitute?
Stuff I have in my shed is:
multipurpose compost
peat moss
blood and bone powder
Also I have some lime powder for adjusting ph, but no way of testing the ph. How do I do this without a ph meter?

Please give me your best soil recipes for cannabis seedlings, then for the veg/flower stage once I put them in bigger pots. If needed I will wait to get some coir but I kind of want to get them started now.

You can always start your seeds in just a damp paper towel, then plant in coir a few days later when they germinated

I use a 1:1 mix of potting soil and mushroom compost, mixed 50/50 with perlite.

So, I guess 1:1:2 ratio of soils/compost/perlite.

Always works very, very well.

I keep reading contradicting "facts" about how much light a 3x3 foot growroom needs, some say a 400W HPS, some say it can be done with a 150 MH, shits retarded.
Using 250W because lower cost, the threat of being busted by the electrical bill is very real in my country.
Now assuming i have a growroom in the dimensions of 3x3x6 feet. would a 250W HPS be enough to completely grow 4-5 plants?

I have a sort of hypothesis for you all. If you look at the family that Cannabis is under (Cannabaceae), you'll notice it also contains the genus Celtis, or hackberry. These are basically huge, resilient trees that happen to grow in areas that are not really conducive to outdoor growing of weed. Now, I know that several different genera can be grafted, provided they're in the same family (look at apples within their family, or the citrus family), but my question is whether or not that holds true for ANY type of species in a family.

I mean, the idea is that people use resilient rootstocks to grow plants in zones normally not hospitable to the plant. Is it possible to graft weed to a hackberry tree somehow? If so, this would pretty much eliminate the need to water or worry about nutrients/soil, as the host plant would provide for that.

Pic somewhat related, as I could imagine some sort of LST/tying would be necessary to promote real flower production.

Thats a really interesting idea OP, if you have an outdoor location to grow to test your idea I think you should definitely pursue it. Shit, if you pulled it off I would be tempted to send you elite California clones to see them grown out in a haggard environment - but I would never do something like that, because the rules and such.. The thought of some mountain grown Valley OG in some european cold front kind of makes my cock hard.

It's a damn interesting idea. It certainly sounds possible but not without it's difficulties. For example using a root stock would be out of the question I believe due to the cambium affecting the vascular structure. However if you were to graft onto the new growth of a more mature tree then it's seems more likely compatible.

I am a first year agricultural student with a little bit of plant science behind me. If you have any questions I can ask some of the professors for you.

I have room without windows where I would like to have some plants (I wanted it to be ferns) in big number (see picture (sorry about the mess) - like a green wall); I like the smell of the air when plants are around and it's my bedroom... so, as there are no windows and only light sources are lamps... some light comes from the other room (I have 3-metres-wide door and it's always open, it's very bright now but usually it's dark in there) but I think it's too little. But still, what can I grow there? I could invest in some sun-like light bulbs but I don't want to ruin my income (electricity bills) with plants. ;-)

Peace lily, I have two right here. Only FLOWERING plant that I know of that prefers the shade.
Ferns are a nice choice but they will drop those damn spores which will get everywhere from butt crack to sock draw. That's why you rarely see people keep them indoors.
The spider plant is a nice suggestion but I would also suggest the curly variety, much prettier and bushier rather than droopy.
Last suggestion is Ivy, you can get variegated and tricolor varieties just to fill in the gaps. Not much training required, I've seen these grow over glass!
All these suggestions love shade and require no lamp. Good luck.

Really depends on what you want(size wise) and the time frame you want the plant to finish up... I only do it if there is not enough vertical space between the plant and the light, and frankly, it helps keep the plant healthier and not burn up

Yes and no, it's all dependent on the strain and the amount of light that each node gets... more light = more photosynthesis = more energy for plant to grow and bud out... bushier does not always mean more fruit, leaves can block sites from getting adequate light to penetrate through the canopy

I guess you are a first timer growing chillies. I love chillies so am happy to answer any questions you may have. The answer to your questions is yes with an if and no with a but, sorry. However you may at least learn something.
Depending on the cultivar and other variables a chilli plant with divide at the 9th, 10th or 11th node. From that point of division and each subsequent point of division is where a chilli plant will produce flowers. At the plants first point of division it is common practice to remove the flowers before they fruit to encourage more fruit at the later divisions.
Now in answer to your question it also depends on whether you intend to over winter or not.
Yes, by removing the apical meristem you will encourage branching but they will still require require a set number of nodes before division which will take a fair while. If you don't intend to grow beyond this year then this isn't advisable.
No, but if you require a shorter bushier plant then it's really your best option. Having said that there are short bushy cultivars which you may consider but if you are growing under a light or over wintering then topping should be fine.

Hope this answers your question.
