I'm having issues with contamination, specifically green mold. I'm using grain bags, washing hands before inoculation, used the alcohol swabs, flame sterilized the needle etc, but it just keeps happening, are there any more ways to prevent this?

obviously you cant state which vendor you bought off but at this point i would consider telling them about your experience. provided youve been truthful in this thread it really does sound like a problem with the syringe altough id expect one particular contam. but then again with mycology one fuck up rarely comes alone.

i cant really give you anything at this point. if you had agar and an sab you could test the syringes yourself

Sterilize your substrate on your own, it's easy and you can exclude one fuck-up factor out of your equation. That leaves you with the spores, try different vendors and maybe try to get both, syringes and spore prints. You just need one successful run to keep this going for as long as you want to

I tried two seperate vendors for both spores and substrate. Althought I got the spores off ebay so thats probably why they weren't up to standard. Its very hard to find decent vendors here even online.

So there's a cherry tree and a peach or plum tree what needs looking after.

They used to be fed with mirical grow which I'm guessing was probably the wrong food because they hardly ever yield much fruit.

Now I'm having them I'm thinking I should dig out most of the soil and put in some fertiliser.

What's the correct way to fix them.
Should I just pick up a bag of bone and fish meal and pour it in ? Or maybe get some horse poop and replace most of the soil with that.

You could at least take them out and check the rootball, and reduce it if necessary
If you insist on growing the trees in pots you should look a for low nitrogen fertilizer, nitrogen makes the plant grow, but it dont make it bear fruit, phosphor and potassium does. These are often called flowering / fruit / vegetable fertilizer.
Get pellets and follow the instructions.

If it's a slightly cold (10-15c) rainy day, (albeit lightly) and I don't water a plant that day at the roots as I usually do during flowering, will the plant be less likely to develop bud rot as a result (will they absorb more moisture through the leaves)? Or am I just fucking my yield over?

whens its cold during the fall and i have pot plants that are still growing i water with warm water about 100-110ºF to get the soil temperature up a little if the rain is enough to saturate the soil anyway. i grow in pots, might no be a good idea if you're in the ground. after it stops raining i wait a few days before watering.

cant make out any contamination

but more importantly why would you make cakes with corn. the vermiculite in PF cakes serves to retain water, pure grain doesnt store enough water in such a shape.
that is most likely the reason why your mycelium looks unhealthy, too little water content.
id bet that the only way youd get primordia to form would be to roll those puppies in verm to encourage a proper microclimate.

if you really have to use corn, grind it and use it to replace the BRF in of pf cakes.

Hi /crops/

Since about a month ago, I planted some seeds i got from an ounce of regular skunk I got.
I managed to grow 2 plants from those seeds but one has grown this seed shape balls you can see in the picture. It is my second time growing (first one was a success) and I never saw this with the other plants.

Is it possible that the plant has sexed in such an early stage?
If not what is going on? Should i be concerned?

I'm planning to grow 3-5 plants and as a first timer, and also a cheap ass, my plan is to grow inside a pc case. Since decent HID or cfl lights plus electricity are more than what i can afford, I'm considering sticking red and blue LED strips on some cardboard and attatching it to the top of the case. My question is if this is viable and what wattage and wavelength should I be looking for?

hey guys was just wondering if i got one of these and grew maybe 2 really stinky autos in it how much you think the smell would spread? would the smell be contained to just that room? just trying to get a few opinions. It would be ok if the smell occasionally leaked from the room but i was hoping to keep the smell down to a minimum.

That is if the filter isn't crap. If it is an actual filter meant to be used 24/7 and under high static pressure, which leaves out kitchen ventilation stuff that can be run under a axial fan.
If it isn't a filter meant to be used with a radial fan it's crap, if it isn't a radial fan it's crap.

could Anyone help me out with telling me the type of bulb i have to get to grow my first female plant about 1 ft tall in a room.. its arid climate.. temp varies.. no methods in place to control the environment much more than watering her and of course.. the time she will get light by night. No idea the type of plant I have growing now, it was more of a "if it grows it grows" type of thing but now i have to bring it indoors for obvious reasons.. anything helps..

bullshit, no such thing as "minimum setup". I agree that odor control (fan+filter) is necessary unless you live in the middle of a field.

To someone 50 grams is more than enough for personal use and you can get that with a 65 watt LED no problem. You can fit the 50 grams and light into a 30x30x50cm tent.

You can sit them outside, next to the tent. You can push air into the filter instead of sucking the air through it.
