Can somebody please help me figure out what's wrong with this plant, at some point I did cause some nutrient burn but that's fixed now, but I can not figure out what is causing these white spots. It honestly looks like some kind of pest rather than a nutrient issue to me, but I cannot see any insects on the plant. This is my first time growing so I'm a bit lost at the moment.

that looks like spider mites
try spraying lemon juice diluted with water or something like that, they're pretty easy to get rid of once you notice them and all sorts of stuff will do the trick, if that really is spider mites.

there are 3 possibilities

  1. When you water droplets of water get on the leaf and the water magnifies your ligh burning spots in the leaf.

2. Some sort of mite it doesnt look like spider mite infestation but i would check under the leaves with a magnifying lens to see if you see the webs or tiny spider looking things.

3. Thrips which in my opinion is the most likely, The way the eat the plant is they rub thier face on the leaf until they get to the sap. Thrips arent ussually a huge issue for cannabis production.

Make sure you dont have spider mites ,
if you do have spider mites spray water on the folliage of your plants daily and maybe put on neem oil if its not flowering yet.

water on the foliage ruins thier webs and washes them down the drain. Spider mites love dry weather

Something is eating my beloved ones. The leaves are getting tiny black spots and discoloured/damaged areas. Pics in the comments. It is feminized WW 3 weeks of 12/12 lights. The disease seems to attack all leaves, could it be spider mite? I have read all the tutorials and didnt find definitive answer.
I ask for advice of more experienced growers, help

Get some fossil dust and spread them in a circle around your plants when you start your growing season. If you're using a greenhouse spread it around the outside of the greenhouse instead. Buy ladybugs, 1500 for outdoors and 100 for greenhouses. A solution of water and soap spread on your plants leafs before you release ladybugs will kill off most any problem you have with insects.
If it's indoors use straight lemon juice or simply have a fan blow on it directly.

Leaf miners.
They're a real bitch to deal with since most safe pesticides don't kill them.
All I really do is spray the plants down with insecticidal soap or Neem Oil and cut off the effected leaves. If the plant is still in veg, it should be fine after a bit of recovery time. Wash the leaves the next day and try to get rid as much of that honeydew as you possibly can. Do this once a week or more and you should see improvement fairly quickly.
I also crush the effected areas between my fingers, which can damage the leaves but since the little fucks already destroying the leaf, it's not that much of a problem. Just killing the miners by crushing them can slow the spread of an infection.
Just make sure you remove the worst effected leaves. It's better to wait a few more weeks than lose an entire plant to a pest that won't go away.
Spinosad apparently works against them, but I've never seen it sold at any retail shops.

yup, looks like spider mites. Leaf miners leave damage that looks different but this is pretty typical of spider mites. They look like tiny black dots and leave behind little white spots like that at first. Take the plant outside and remove anything heavily affected, then spray it down real good with a powerful enough jet of water that it will knock them off, then spray on some sort of repellent or killer designed for them. They like to hang out on the undersides of leaves so make sure to spray that real good. The eggs are harder to kill so make sure to keep using the insecticide regularly even after it seems like they're all gone so you kill anything that hatches.

I've noticed that everything I grow smells of licorice. The buds themselves smell of the strain they'e supposed to and the licorice is undetectable until ground up, but when I grind it up and sniff it up close, I get the same licorice smell regardless of strain, is there any reason for this?

I've always used the same soil and nutrients, I have some triple cheese that smells obscenely like cheese but ground up and sniffed up close it has the same licorice smell. I'm not complaining, just wondering why this is.

NYC diesel related (also had this smell once ground)

Pretty much every strain I've grown has had the smell to some degree. Black.

I know it was harvested early, it was an autoflower I shoved in the tent because I was going to run out so I harvested a bit early to have some smoke while another pant finished instead of spending $100+ on more weed.

its your nutrients temperature light combo.

Cannabanoids are mode through the isopranoid pathway which is very voltile becuase the compounds serve to go into air and attract predators to eat aphids and cool the plant down. These compounds are intentionally unstable and will change vastly with how plants are grown.

Change up your nutes and temps if you want different smells. I have found any weed i grow outside in Minnesota Smells like fucking lemons especially by fort snelling state park

Defoliate only the leaves that are turning yellow or have diseased spots. If you are familiar with source and sink in plants the leaves are the source and the bud is the sink. The leaves make sugars that the plants will use to produce buds.

Removing foliage can help with mold issues but generally reduces yield. With your grow i would suggest trimming all your side branches off early on leaving only the top cola(s) that will use the vertical space well and give you top value product. No one want a bunch of tiny nugs.

I've been growing plants indoors for like 4 years. Grew a habanero plant from sapling to ded. I really like this guy's guide:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7nVfrPro8Y&list=PLs6dtBxfQNZ9ypfNbKfEhgvw9NW9RqRU8

His method is probably the best way to start growing without too much extra bullshit weighing you down. Also, torrent you a copy of the marijuana grow bible to flip to when you need to learn a specific topic.

This video is good too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZcVeNMTi6o
It's like 435 pages long and goes into excruciating detail on pretty much anything you would ever want to know about growing. For everything else, ask google.

My tips:
>use 3-7 gallon fabric grow bags for each pot plant, ~1 gallon per foot. it allows more oxygen to get to the roots
>use ~600 watts per 16 square feet
>use LED lamps since they take longer to burn out and convert more electricity into light than heat
>get some urea (nitrogen) bonemeal (Phosphorus) and potash (potassium) and mix it together in a mason jar adding 1 part nitrogen, 2 parts bonemeal, 1 part potash and add 1/4 tsp to every liter of water you give them like the guy in the video does. If you want to get fancy then make another batch with 1 part nitrogen 4 parts bonemeal 2 parts potash and use it when you flower your plants
>the plant is separated into 2 stages, vegatative and flowering. plants need 18 hours of light, blue spectrum heavy light, and more nitrogen during vegatative, they need 12 hours of light, red spectrum heavy light, and more phosporus and potassium during the flowering.

Hello fellow fungus friends
This is the thread I wanted

I have a jar of half colonized rye a bro gave me of oysters
I have this hypothesis that if I open it and induce fruiting
the shrooms will not only grow but also stimulate further colonization since it needs food
also I don't think contams of the uncolonized rye will be a problem because the rye itself is at the bottom of the jar
I think the colonized part is a healthy filter itself but
I will also cover the top with a polyfill lid till it starts fruiting
even though I've read its hard for substrate to get infected with anything once colonized

But the point is to see if I can increase the colonization speed, because fruits

yeah most common contams wont really take hold on mycellium
besides
oyster mushrooms are pretty darn fierce when it comes to beating contaminants, at least when compared to cubensis
but i highly doubt that youd speed up colonization this way. complete colonization is one of the strongest fruiting triggers. if you had multiple jars id say go for it and tesst your idea but since you only have one, youd have no idea wether or not it had any impact even if you should succeed

keep in mind that youll lose water if you leave the spawn exposed to the elements. i havent growm oysters indoors but i think youll need someway of maintaining a high RH% around the spawn

Bad idea. Park rangers aren't who you have to worry about, state fish and game police are. They're state police and make over $100k + benefits in most states so bribing them will not ever work. They're also usually people who have learned to hate all manner of druggies with a passion thanks to vagrant faggots and shitty cartel beaners planting tons of weed in a forest they've been struggling to keep healthy and happy for years.
Also if they find your grow out in the woods sometimes they'll just sit there and wait for days until you come back because they can afford the time and energy to do so being part of the state police.
If your grow is big enough they'll straight up shoot you since most large grows are owned by gangs and are heavily armed.
Furthermore since it's on federal land you get to serve federal prison time and come under federal and state jurisdiction; you will be fucked in all holes both literally and figuratively for a long ass time.
Far safer and less hassle to just make some closet space.

Hi Everyone!

With Cannabis legalization coming in a few days here in Canuckistan, I wanted to get started with my own home grown.

I've got a 40 Gallon standard aquarium, with hood and light. I'm looking to hopefully repurpose these into my grow spot.

Looking for ideas on how to set it up. what sort of light I should try and find for it (Currently has a UVB from previous occupant), what sort of seeds to grow (Drawf? Something that will remain in this aquarium till harvest with ok yeilds (Winter is coming, outdoors will be next year).

if it's legal why the fuck would you grow inside of a tiny box? It will come out small and shitty. If you want good weed you need a bright light. Get one of these cheap chinese LED arrays and give it an entire closet. I got one that works like a charm.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/MUCH-300W-LED-Grow-Light-Hydro-Full-Spectrum-Veg-Flower-Indoor-Plant-Lamp-Panel/142959170940?epid=2215360137&hash=item214907d57c:g:YYQAAOSwwB5bqsYm:rk:7:pf:0

The more light the danker your weed will be. You'd be better off just putting it outside if you're going to use a weak shitty light. Spectrum is important, any old light won't work nearly as well and will be highly inefficient compared to a light with a custom spectrum designed for growing plants.

Thanks for the reply.

  1. "Tiny Box" because of limited space indoors. Trying to maximize the existing spaces and tools I may already have at hand. If using an Aquarium is so ridiculous an idea, than so be it, I Am not apposed to anything else.

I Understand what you mean entirely by light. If Full spectrum UVB isn't enough and one of those light "pods" are recommended, i'm willing to buy. You say the one you linked as "Cheap Chinese" though. What's the lifespan on these? Would buying a better quality one be worth while? I'm a cheap ass, but I hope to have whatever setup usable year round for a few years.

now if the aquarium thing just is a no go, Than i'd need other options for a fairly contained grow enclosure. I have pets, so having it in an enclosure is a must to keep them out (They can't get into the Aquarium i've got as an example).

New to the grow scene. if it weren't for winter, i'd be doing this outdoors for my first grow (since I've got garden space)

Unfortunately I have no idea what the longevity of any given light you purchase will be. I bought my light off ebay a few years back and it looks almost exactly the same and it worked well but I've only used it for one grow so far. They seem to be pretty simple devices for the most part though, just some LEDs and a couple of computer fans in a case to keep things cool. Even if a few LEDs crap out on you, the rest should work just fine.

As far as needing an enclosed space goes, you certainly can grow in a 40 gallon aquarium but it won't be ideal for several reasons, first off, it's just too small. Remember you need to grow the plant in something, so you'll need a pot of some kind, that leaves you with very little vertical room for the plant itself. Marijuana plants stretch upwards vertically during the first few weeks of flowering and usually double or even triple in height, so even if you start flowing with a tiny plant, you will run out of vertical room. You will also need good air flow which means you will need to put a fan in the aquarium further reducing your space for the plant. You're going to take a minimum of 2 months to grow even the fastest flowering strains but a plant that fits in a container that size won't produce more than an ounce tops and that's with lots of work to manage the canopy. As a rookie in a space that small you're likely to get almost nothing for your efforts. Simply growing in a larger space will make the wait more worth it because you get more bud.

Another reason it's not ideal is because the clear sides will let out all your light. Ideally the sides of your grow chamber should be an extremely low gloss (matte/flat) white paint with high reflectivity because white paint reflects all spectra of light. Most ceiling paint fits the bill. Specially designed reflective materials like mylar will also work. If you're planning to use the light in the aquarium I doubt it will be powerful enough to grow good weed, and when it comes to spectrum it's not a matter of whether you have enough of the spectrum, but rather whether it's optimized for plant growth. Weed needs mostly blue and red light with smaller amounts of UV bei…

hey folks my cannaplants are looking good but they seem to be making pop corn buds (the bud sites are small little clumps but it fails to grow as a thingy properly) its purpleing around the top of the cola its an unidentified strain from street acquired seeds so im not sure if thats natural for it, personally i suspect it just to be cold stress. it had some mild root rot that ive fixed and its in a small pot. by it i mean the crop. basically theyre doin good but they smell like faint flowers. i havent grown successfully before so i could imagine frying it and getting the water weight out would make the smell less diluted but idk. ipleae let me know what might be up cause im lost here man
