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?

So the guy that mentioned I wasn't going to get more than a gram was sort of right, I don't think my plant will grow any further. But it had nothing to do with the LED lights, so in context that guy is still a cunt. (Pot size + Outdoors period ruined the initial start.)

Pot size has nothing to do with that plant's size. The amount of light is the only reason it's so small. Next time you might want to do some LST also.

Would a 200W HPS be sufficient for a 60x60x120 tent? I had a 600W I got for free in there and fried some of my plants with it. Though I could get something else instead, my budget is $100-1k.

There's no way a 600w HPS fits in a 60x60x120cm tent, not even with a shitty cooltube. A 400w hps is maximum with a cooltube, 250w without one.

OP, the 250w light is perfect for the space as long as you have a decent inline fan pulling air out from the tent. I'd recommend 4 plants in scrog for that tent.

A 200W HPS is plenty (sure it's 200, not 250?) , 150W is the best fit.

Another good choice in that range are PL-Ls 3-4x 55W or 150W CDMs if you DIY your fixture.

Title says it all, really.

I'm going to be starting my first grow within the next four or five months once I move into my new house, and I'd really like some advice on what the highest yielding pure Indica strain would be for price per seed, and first time grow tips and things of that nature.

The strains I'm strongly considering are as follows:
Northern Lights
Master Kush
White Rhino
Green Poison

I'm considering Northern Lights the most because of the price per seed and overall magnitude of yield and bud quality. Master Kush is in second for the same reasons. At first, I really wanted to try out Dynamite, however, the price per seed is just too much for my budget at the moment. I'll probably try it out for my third or fourth grow, so I can save up more money.

Advice? Suggestions? I've also read that Critical Mass is pretty decent, as well as Aurora Indica. First time growing tips would be greatly appreciated.

Pink stigmas are a common trait in south american sativas, but I guess it's not a real sativa since that guy says the bud structure is wrong, probably should look identical to the Dr. Shitspoon.

haha. good to know what they can do for/against you though right? but trust me, that ain't going to be the only one. there will be many.

that one in your pic, it's no trouble, it ain't wrapped enough yet that you even gotta clip it. you can unwrap it, reposition it on a trellis or fence or a fortified dowel base or whatever you want to do with it,
though if you allow (or intentionally place) the tendrils to climb up something like a trellis - rather than keeping them in check and letting the vine grow at ground level - then you gotta worry about vertical support or the melons later (gravity issues) .. a lot of people that grow their melons up on a fence or a trellis or whatever, they just support the melons by hanging them in a pair of pantyhose and tying it to the fence. works great, plus saves a lot of space if you grow a lot of other crop on a plot with limited size.

don't know how much you know bout growin melons so pardon if my advice sounds like i'm talkin down or anything,. not my intention.
though i do wonder out of curiosity how you're gonna deal wit melons in what appears to be such a small pot? are they a bush variety, like with 3-4' vines or do you intend to transplant or what? cus if that pot is as small as it looks, you'll likely end up with some stunted melons that aren't too choice for eaten

If no competition, then thin and spread out.
If competition with others, then thick voluminous tentacles will grow and secrete bright baby blue coloured striations.

The latter is what you want. But keep in mind that it's incredibly easy to fuck up the latter so be careful when introduction other species of non-psychoactive mushrooms.

Get a hypodermic syringe and create a rubber septum filter in your tupperware box.
All you need is a completely airtight environment in which you sterilise everything with a pressure cooker. Then, toss the sterilised faeces in the container and sterilise again.
Inject the spores in and place some bread in direct sunlight out in the open and wait a few days. Once the shrooms have grown a noticeable amount, so would the open air bread. Scoop a VERY small amount of the bread mould spores into the syringe and inject it back into the septum to introduce foreign species.
After 2-6 weeks, you can harvest them.

Remember to sterilise the syringe and septum before injecting. You can sterilise the syringe by filling it with water and putting it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Use hydrogen peroxide on the needle followed by a 70% isopropanol wash.

Been wanting to do this a long time, and it's finally happening.
I ordered 4 10cc syringes. Ecuador, Golden Teacher, Penis Envy, and B+
Spent a few hours researching and it seems pretty simple actually. I have a few concerns though.
My roommate keeps the temp in here at about 68 F. Will that be okay or do I need to raise the temp a bit? I don't think I'll be able to mist and fan them 3-5 times a day since I have a job and I'm gone for around 6-10 hours a day. Is there a way to set something up to keep it at the right humidity without having to manually spray them throughout the day? Since it seems like I should be using a light as well, how far from the terrarium should I keep the light?

Updating again. In this pic you can see the few good fruits i got from my mini monotubs. I wasn't sure if I would get anything so I'm pretty happy with the little bit I did get. There's not much more but there are some smaller ones still growing I will pick another day. Some of the funkiest looking shrooms i've ever seen. These penis envy took a pretty damn long time to get. So next strain I will try is Golden Teacher. I'm still hoping the big monotubs i put into fruiting will do better.
Advice for me for next time: I need to wait until I actually see pins before putting the tubs into fruiting conditions. Oh well.

In order to get most of those shrooms I had to lift the substrate out of the tub, since most of them were growing from the side of the tub instead of the top which would have been ideal. The tub in this pic i flipped over and put into a bigger tub, so hopefully the shrooms that were getting squished on the sides and bottom will grow bigger easier. I don't know if this was a good idea or not, but i'm experimenting since i don't have anyone to help. Unless you guys have any advice.
My other two mini mono's i put in bigger tubs as well but didn't flip over. Any advice? oh well, i am super excited to try these. xD

If you lived in a medical state with authorized grows and wanted to grow from seed in order to do ScROG effectively, would you A) buy feminized seeds from a reputable seedbank overseas and risk losing them to customs, or B) buy seeds locally from a dispensary that doesn't offer feminized ones and risk getting males at $10 a seed?

It's a fight I'm having with myself. If anyone knows of a tutorial or has tips for doing ScROG with clones, then I can negate the argument and go over to a clone shop, but all the info I've been able to find has been on ScROG starting from seed.

Also, I'm doing hydro this go-round (I've used SOG with soil in the past, wanted to try new things), so does anyone have tips for moving soil clones to coco coir hydro? I'm doing a flush/water method, not recirculating (didn't have the money for it), so I'm going to be alternating watering sessions between nutrients and PH'd water. Any tips would be appreciated, /weed/referred me here.

I don't understand what you're calling a problem about using clones for a scrog. You're talking screen-of-green? I have always done cloned everything. Grow a clone out big-ish, take lots more clones from it, and plant each in a pot as large as you need for your space. Veg those, then turn em over to 12/12.

IMO at least, fuck seeds. Only if you have time to devote to getting and keeping thoroughbreds (and even then, you're still gonna want to clone the best one) would I consider popping seeds.

Coco is super easy, and will work with most anything. I personally take clones in 2x2 rockwool cubes dat legal shit and put them in Coco Loco, just pre-charged coco mix in a bag. Transfer from 1gal to 3gal when they're about 14" tall.

Hey guys, I'm doing my first ever indoor grow and wa wondering if there is even a remote chance of getting decent buds with cfls. If its just a joke grow then I'd rather just spend my 50 bucks on some killer then sit around and wait 3 months for an ounce of leafy crap with white strands on it. Can I get anything even close to pic related? If I do everything properly?

The reason I decided to do an indoor grow with a light is because my friend showed me his grow op an it was just a single long bulb hanging in some old metal casing on a table. He showed me the bud and it was so frosty and good smelling I assumed he used a serious grow light, but it was just some hanging fluorescent light no fans or aluminum foil or anything, and the bud was better than half the shit I normally get and it wasn't even trimmed properly.

So I can get all the info without making a new thread I'd like to ask some questions,

  1. Can you guys recommended me some (cheap) cfls and wires and sockets to use and any nutrients I should get? My plants are already started past the seedling stage so I need nutrients for vegetation and budding.

2. Is it possible to switch around light sources? I'm using sun light right now until they grow about 2 feet and I want to store them in my closet because of neighbor an use cfls to light them and then switch to led lights to bud them for a better yield, if I have the money.

3. What is the expected yield on your average plant? I've heard of people collecting pounds off a plant but people with cfls say they only get about an ounce? Is it just impossible to grow big ass buds with just indoor lighting?

4. What wattage should I get on the bulbs and how many should I have for a small 5 foot space? Is it cheaper to get led lights or cfls? How much does it cost just to get proper sockets for them? I'm worried about costs like that I I need 7-8 lights.

Thank you in advance to anyone who helps

These are complete fixtures, they are better than these CFLs but they only have 96W. And while these 2 ft T5s aren't upto of what their counterparts in HID department can do they are a decent value for their money. If you buy two of them you still need a timer, hangers and extra tubes for flowering vs veg.
But at least they aren't a complete waste of money, like the other things you came up with.

You don't need to change bulbs for flower. Fluorescent light sources have a pretty full spectrum to begin with.

Alright thanks I found the same light fixture but with 4 ft tubes and twice the lumens for only 10 dollars extra with each bulb being 54 watts. Will this give me okayish buds or will it just grow schwag shit?

If you can fit the 4ft ones definitely use them. The 4 ft ones are the sweet spot when it comes to florescent lights.

Okay good. I have some pretty nice seeds and I didn't want to waste them on growing junk.
