I think I fucked up guys.
I have a plant I was pinching and bending over and I slipped and accidentally snapped the main stem. It didn't fully break but was snapped into a right-angle bend, so I've just left it supported up but it's bent the wrong way. I'm scared if I bend it the direction i want the stem is just going to completely snap off.. Can this plant even recover? It was growing nicely too..

Tape it into an upright direction and/or cut it off and then, with tape, put the two pieces back together and they'll probably heal, at least pepper plants recover well this way.

Little late
but you can use a straw cut sideways as a clamp

I can't believe I'm the first to suggest making a clone out of it.

I have used duct tape to fix branches that get snapped.

considering your suggestion came 8 weeks after OP post, it might already be a bit too late for that.

Hoping for a bit of help here guys, SWIM has a system. Think its from eBay or something bodge but its not making sense.

As I understand it an IWS system works like figure B.
But SWIMs system has figure A's pots and cant figure out how to make figure C out of that.

In figure A we have 4 pots, the blue circles are inlet/outlets and pot 2 and 3 have a float. The red circles are on the opposite side of the pots.
The Green 'pot' is the big tank, in fig. A the tank has two holes above a third hole (purple) labeled 'overflow'.
It is a rain water collection tank and has a tap near the bottom but as far as it looks the tap will only drain the tank halfway which isn't enough. Surely it should be more like fig C?
The black circle is a lid for a pot with an outlet labeled 'overflow' and some hose.

What the hell has happened here? How would you plumb this together?

Any help is greatly appreciated. Merry, merry, merry Christmas!

Germed almost 2 weeks ago, transferred to top fed dwc with 5.5 ph res about a 10 days ago.

Is it ok to add 1/4 strength nutes at this point?

sure go ahead, I've also read 6 to 6.5 ph is best for vegetative growth.

Cupboard grow by Cyril Purringdock - Thu, 15 Dec 2016 03:02:15 EST ID:xSlPqyAH No.143839 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Growing newfag here

I have a small cupboard (image attached). Is this possible to have 1-2 cannabis plants growing in there? I've read about some sort of mesh screen (workmate was calling it a "scrog") to stop the grow height or something.

Is it possible? Obviously I will be taking the shelf out in the middle so I can maximize my grow height.

Tips? Insight?

Also, would it be possible to use a high powered battery LED light for the cycle?

you need to make some holes for electricity and ventilation
it can be restored back fairly easily with plaster (remember to keep the big cutout for the ventilation)

No, you cant grow with a battery flashlight

It'd more trouble than it's worth.
55cm is way too short for the lights, grow pot and the plant itself to fit in.
Unless you get really creative..
You're better off growing in a tent or a decent sized closet.

You could cut two slits into the door for ventilation:
One at the bottom with a black painted "light trap" and one at the top with a few PC fans along the length of it.
For power you can drill a hole into the top part of the cupboard and put a cable through.

For growing medium you can build a DWC box out of a large rubbermaid container and glue a scrog frame onto the lid with epoxy.

It's all pretty finicky still, you should seriously consider getting a small tent or building a small box which stands on the floor, perhaps under the desk, etc..

I agree with others that it would be more trouble than it's worth, but you probably could grow one or two. Heat, ventilation, and space would be you major issues. Using LED instead of HPS for you grow light should help with heat. Training the plant would help you in the space dept. On top of scrog or lst training, I would change to 12/12 a week from sprouting if not doing it right from seed. In the end you are still waiting like 3 month for a harvest half an O. Whereas if you remove the spatial limitations you could veg the plant for a month or more before switching and end up with at least a few Oz.
