I've been exploring different paths for my life, and one of my ideas is that when I finish up my Air Force enlistment in 2 years, I want to back to my home state of Colorado and start growing weed in the hopes of starting a recreational marijuana business with some friends of mine. I've pirated a couple of basic botany/horticulture books and some marijuana growing books as well and have started reading up on them, but I know the best way to get good at something is by doing it.

Unfortunately, I am stationed in Oklahoma, where marijuana isn't completely legal. My question is: What is the closest plant I can grow that's most similar to marijuana as far as the growing process goes? Should I just learn to grow random foods like tomatoes and shit? I just want to know what would have the most carryover knowledge-wise.

Also, since medical marijuana laws have relaxed a bit in Oklahoma, I was considering contacting any local dispensaries near me and asking if their grower would consider the possibility of an apprenticeship with them, even if it's just doing shitty grunt work/manual labor and only learning a few small things as I go. Is it unrealistic to expect a yes? Like would that be weird or is there a better way to go about it?

Not trying to be a dickhead but it's borderline impossible to enter the recreational market in Colorado. These guys who are leading it have been illegally growing for decades. These guys are master growers who produce some of the best cannabis in the country. Honestly you're better off distributing in Oklahoma where an ounce goes for $300-350. In Colorado, growers sell pounds for $1000-1200, and just to produce one pound you'll need several plants. It's not much of a cash crop if you're trying to sell in Colorado.

stop with that bullshit about "master growers" and all the fuckrot. its not true. commercially produced shit that isn't intended for someone's personal stash isn't grown well, its grown economically with the least care needed to meet the minimum standards for the market being targeted. my outdoor homegrown is better than almost any bud that you'll ever see for sale commercially. and its not like there aren't a billion localities that haven't legalized growing yet, there will be opportunities in the production field for years and years.

Aeroponics vs Fogponics by Nicholas Shittingfoot - Tue, 18 Sep 2018 16:50:24 EST ID:0tZk9yUl No.146314 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Going to be doing my first real grow soon now that it's legal in California, and I don't see much appeal in half-assing it with soil or even hydroponic grows, so I'm trying to go straight to aeroponics.

In the process I learned about fogponics. Is fogponics (which should really be called "vapoponics" by the way) really better than aeroponics? My questions are -

  • The stream of fog is constant. Doesn't that reduce oxygen to the roots vs aeroponics occasional sprays? Seems more like a hydroponic system suspended in the air, which deprives the roots of oxygen by submerging them, vs "the next step in aeroponics".

  • The vapor particles will be much smaller than the fine liquid particles in aeroponics. Can cannabis roots absorb such small particles as effectively? I think of redwood trees which have specific biological systems designed to capture fog (their needles basically), these would not be present in cannabis roots. Would the tiny molecule size hinder capillary action in the roots somehow or would it build up enough in the roots to work just like aeroponic spray?

  • Would the act of vibrating the nutrient solution to create the vapor molecules feasibly distill any nutrients bound to the water? Seems like this would only be an issue if the nutrients were insoluble in water - don't know if that's ever the case as I'm focusing on getting the structure to grow within ready first.

As amazing as fogponics is, it is absolutely the most fickle bitch, but most efficient and rewarding method, out of all growing techniques. To put this into perspective, NASA uses fogponics to grow veggies, and has been testing this growing method for some time now. I think they use it on the ISS as well.

The main issue with choosing this route is that it comes down to two things.

Issue 1: it is not for newer cultivators by any means. The amount of fine-tuning needed is extremely high-maintenance.

Issue 2: most people that use this method report that there's a ceramic part that is used in the process/device to turn the liquid into a fog that tends to break/crack fairly often to the extent that it needs replacing every 3-4 months. (This was quite a few years ago, so the technology may have advanced to where this is not longer an issue.)

To touch on the subject of possible reduced oxygen, just get some good old food-grade 35% hydrogen peroxide. Add 1-5ml/gal depending on how much you want to use. I've been experimenting with 4-5ml/gal and I've only seen good things. The trick to using it correctly is to add the hydrogen peroxide into the pure water before adding nutes and let it sit for 30 minutes so it has a chance to dissolve into said water.

You won't have to worry about the nutrients being less effective as well, since fogponics has been tested against aero and hydro methods, with fogponics being up to 25% more effective than aeroponics when comparing growth rates. The people that did the tests used the same clones from the same mother plant, used control plants on top of that.

That being said, fogponics is something of an end-game method for me. I'm slowly working my way up the latter as far as growing techniques goes. Aeroponics is next on my list of things to try since ebb and flow has been working great for me.

So after a lot of issues my plant has finally been growing these small buds and it feels like it's getting close to harvest time. How much longer should i wait? the temperatures outside are skipping between 16 and 20°C and i'm afraid it's getting to cold for my little buddy.

16°C too cold for weed? Its not usually a problem. Under 10 degrees is where you can start to have issues with slowed growth but damage to the plants won't occur until you get closer to 0.

That being said from your picture it does actually look like you are close to harvest. How are your trichomes looking?

Do my plants look healthy for 29 days of flowering? (not exactly 29 days, actually - I just switched to 12/12 27 days ago). Also is it OK that dozens of the lower leaves started to wither and fall off since my plants started to bloom? Should I worry about it or it's a natural thing?

There's plenty of floodlights that have been approved for import that come with their own drivers, and prices seem to be well within the range of even the poorest growers. They often fall within the 3000-6000k temperature range, so in theory they're just as capable as COB kits.
I ordered 4 30W floodlights for around $40 in total, but I'm waiting for someone else to admit that they've tried it and hopefully offer some tips. If not, I'll post some updates once everything has been set up and the plants show some results.

First off no, i'm not looking to grow my own mushrooms. This is about hunting wild mushrooms. I just got back from my first hunt ever, I had chosen boletes since they are relatively safe with no deadly lookalikes. I've learned that to verify boletes you just have to check that the pores aren't bright yellow or red, and that when sliced open it doesn't bruise blue. Do that and you're good. Gonna fry them up in a little bit, nervous but I shouldn't be. Anyway, I'm going to need some help learning about and identifying mushrooms in the coming months, since mushroom season is upon me now. My main goals are to get lots of boletes, puff balls (I know the identification rules for those too), and possibly chantrelles if I can find any (I know to beware of false cantrelles, these seem to be the most difficult to identify on my list, but still good for beginners). I found what I suspect are young honey mushrooms also, and they're the main reason I made this thread. I'm going to be observing them over the next days or weeks to see how they develop and I may be able to tell if they're honey mushrooms by then. Still, if I'm not absolutely certain beyond a shadow of a doubt I will not eat honey mushrooms. They have a deadly lookalike, the galerina. But from pictures it seems that the galerina has a slimy cap, while the honey mushroom has a dry, slightly hairy cap.

It's fine, mushroom lovers seem rare so I'll take what I can get! lol

I just got back inside from a rainy mushroom hunt. Originally went out to wrangle my chickens but decided since I was in the vicinity I'd check the forest. I hit the jackpot! Probably around 2oz wet of black trumpet mushrooms. Very hard to cultivate, so wild picked is almost all you can get. I'm drying them to use in soups later. It's taste is said to be similar to morels or truffles.

Also I've branched out into Hygrophorus Milky hunting! The Hygrophorus Milky is in the milkcap family and is a choice edible. It is said to have a mild flavor, and has been studied and found to have the highest protein content out of 40 tested mushrooms. Making it a standout in the usually protein lacking fungi world.

Mushroom hunting is a fun hobby, and a good excuse to get outside if nothing else. I wish i lived in a wetter climate so I could go hunting more often. Honey mushrooms are generally large and white to honey colored. Galernia are usually small and orange. I can't see many people confusing the two. Honey mushrooms are really often filled with maggots, so I would recommend cutting a cap in half in the field, rather than harvesting and taking the mushrooms home, only to find out they're no good. I've learned that on the hard way.

Agaricus is also a pretty easy genus to identify edibility. I've only found one or two edible ones though.

You can always post any mushroom you find here https://www.shroomery.org/forums/postlist.php/Board/3 and they'll identify it for you. The trusted identifiers are seriously experts, and they'll let you know if they aren't certain, but I would trust my life with them. I went hunting with a group from the shroomery a few months ago near mt shasta and everyone found a shit load of morels and boletes.

Pic is some Armillaria mellea I found and did not eat because, despite looking great, they were full of maggots.

Looks nice and will probably look even nicer in 2 weeks, but leave it out as long as you dare. Its packing on more weight and more trichomes every day so calling the 22nd now might leave you with regrets when you're running out of the flower from this plant down the line, especially if there is good weather available after that. Even on a cloudy day the plants are still getting about 100 watts per square meter and they'll grow as long as the temperature is above about 15ºC or so. Just keep your eyes open for the signs of impending botrytis.
The best drying/least loss of flavor I saw last year was a friend of mine who grew somewhat terrible plants, but hung his whole plants to dry in an unheated shed outdoors towards then end of October and waited 3 weeks before putting it in jars. It ended up being a strange combination of ugly, but potent enough flower with great flavor.

Incorporating a lot of woodchips in your soil or as a mulch invites fungus to break it down rather than bacteria due to the lignin. Be careful incorporating it into the soi - this will bind up your available nitrogen in the soil for a year or four depending on soil. But yeah i have a ton in my woodchip pile that's getting regular doses of urine go add nitrogen to help break down the high carbon woodchips. Takes time but it istays warm then converts to mycorrhiza and fungi after anaerobic bacteria end

So i have a mild spidermite infestation. Had some random himalayan seeds that i grew on my windowsill, so they are 3 midget mature plants with a small amount of leafs. They are now in the box. Only tiny tiny webs, but you can clearly see the spots where they eat the leaves. About half of the leafs on each plant are affected, the lower once the most. Already removed one set of the worst.
Now this is a no budget grow, i live in poverty and realistically i cant order anything.
i thought about apllying a spray mixture of soap, garlic and then possibly chili to get rid of them. i know people that say garlic repels them if grown as a companion plant. true ?
sadly no pics of my own until now

OP spidermites aren't fatal to the plants.

Besides spritzing the plants with water to blast them away (which can reduce their population) just try to keep the temperature as low as possible and you will still get a half decent yield.
The mites won't go away anyway.
To completely get rid of mites you have to start over and sterilize the environment.

Next time use properly store bought soil which won't contain mites.
