Thinking of how to hide a cannabis pot by the river next to my home.

so i live by a small stream that pretty much flows all year, and get bigger with the scarce rains that fall here, its surrounded by lots of reeds and can be a perfect hiding spot for a grow...

Now my idea was to germinate at home and when the plants have grown a bit in their pots place them on the shallow edge of the water so that most of the soil is out and just the bottom would be wet by the stream so i would not have to go water them every time, could this work?

would the plants roots survive this as would a plant on the edge of a river or something? or do i need to do sometyhing different?

how would you do it?

So i took all my spent mushroom cakes and stuck them in the dirt of a big potted plant that i have. I grow catgrass in the bottom of the plant so it stays constantly moist and nice down there and ive noticed that the whole bottom is now coated with mycelium and smells like mushrooms. Is there any chance at all that this will ever go into fruiting again...? or do i basically just have a very moldy plant now? thanks for any info i really cant find info on fruiting mushrooms in this way or if it is at all possible thanks!

They have a normal low heat light bulb as their light rn, it's like an energy saver one, they're just small and I don't have any good lights yet, but why are the tips on the leaves yellowing, the lights not hot or anything, I used old compost garden soil and I water them a little once a day with tap water, so I hope thats enough info

You're overwatering and the plants are suffocating because of that. A plant that small doesn't need to be watered daily, once every two weeks should be enough.

Move the light closer.

It's my first time growing so i knew i would make mistakes.
I have this probleme, can you tell me what it is? I used Janeco light mix, i have a 400W lamp, the top of my plants are at 40cm of it, i extract 400 m3, im at 60 to 50% humidity.
I put 2L of water in 9L pots every 4-5 days (when i feel the dirt is dry), im at week 3 of bloom, i put 3mL of fertilizer per L of water every two watering. I add a PK booster 0-52-33 since last week every two watering too. Those traces appeared 3 weeks ago on one plant and now its on all my "Amnesia" plants (5 of them)
I can give you more details, more pictures if needed

Have you checked the plant symptom troubleshooters online?
If you haven't then check out this post.

After that, verify the suspected problem from the pics:

My two cents:
Doesn't look like it's the usual nutrient burn / or lack of nutes.
Looks more like a nutrient lockout caused by pH fluctuations.

I don't think it's a coincidence that the symptoms appeared when you switched to flower.
Might be that an essential blooming nutrient is not available with the current pH level.

Thank you for your two cents, I don't have an electronic pH tester, I do it with a color solution so Im never sure of my pH, can a fluctation of 0.5-1 cause this?
From what i see, regarding the links, it could be Ca or Mn. I think i need to have a higher pH cause i usually water with 6 maybe lower

If you don't have a meter and you set your water by color strips or drops, then you add humic and fulvic acids, those drive it way down really quickly the same way if you add silicate it will drive it way up.

In soil 6.2-6.5 is optimal, some strains are a lot more forgiving than others. The wrong ratio of cal/mag can mess things up too if it's way off. That leaf looks mottled like a potassium or phosphorous problem, it usually doesn't affect just half of the leaf though. Potassium, magnesium and sulfur take the biggest hit when you dip below 5.5 ph in soil.

YOU DIDN'T update on how your plants are doing. I say stop all fertilizer before you destroy them, they most definitely have had enough nutrients. All these companies try to sell you their over priced fertilizer but remember there's tons of nutrients already in the soil. It's ok to supplement a bit but too much is too much and can be more detrimental than too little nutrients. Also, your pots look kinda shallow, I believe in deep large pots.

Just wondering exactly how to inoculate these bags. It has a black injector port, with tape over it, do I peel back the tape, inject then put the tape back, or do I just inject through the tape and cover the hole with some of my own tape?

The instructions for the grow kit do not say anything about tape, and in the pictures it appears they have just stuck the needle through the tape and the port and not bothered to cover with more tape. I know some use the self healing injector ports, but I can't find any indication the one I has is self healing nor do I know what a self healing injector port is.

if its a self healing injection port, meaning that the material recloses when you withdraw the syringe, you dont have to bother with tape.

if in doubt just desinfect the port, inject and quickly conver with tape

mushroom fruiting chamber sensors idea by Henry Firringnot - Thu, 07 Dec 2017 09:15:33 EST ID:4s3plGIc No.145615 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel here I just had an idea for a project. We all know that keeping a fruiting chambers relative humidity above a certain point (people will argue about the exact number) is a major key to getting good flushes as well as fresh air exchange. My question is does the moisture level of the substrate cake you're using also have any kind of effect on fruiting? I ask because I came across this neat little "soil humidity sensor" that can interface with an arduino and I'm assuming a raspberry pi3 as well. I'm using the pi3 to semi automate a misting set up in my future fruiting chamber which will be using a RH sensor that interfaces with the pi3. Would sticking the soil humidity meter into a cake give me any benefit or would I just end up destroying a perfectly good cake? Again this is more just a neat little project idea I came up with.

any particular reason as to why youre using a raspberry pi? are you data logging via email or monitoring the chamber remotely? otherwise a microcontroller with a few relays will be enough be far

youre not talking about PF cakes are you? if so this whole set up will be a lot of effort for small scale returns.
some people love greenhouses, and they tend to love them back, but i only ever found them really useful compared to a monotub when running tests on newly isolated cubensis strains or fruiting pan. species

concerning the substrate humidity sensor, i dont think theres a lot to be gained since the relation between moisture content and fruiting formation is pretty obvious. just dunk after every flush. you can estimate the loss in water content by weighing fruiting bodies and watching the size reduction.

you should watch out with those digital RH sensors, some models are very unreliable above a certain threshold, youd definetely want to write a short program for recalibration against an analog hygrometer, and RH is really the only way to measure FAE seing as carbondioxide sensors arent that cheap, im not sure if the volatile organics could be used to measure stale air, but simply hooking up the fans to a time control should be enough since stamets gives good starting points on FAE frequency

god speed

Not sure if you'd gain anything from sticking it INSIDE the cake, that you couldn't get by either keeping the RH at a certain point. The cake is going to transport what it needs from the outside. That is where RH matters. Keep that in the zone and you should be fine. No need to poke around inside the cake.
