Dried up Rapid Rooter/Seedling. Please don't die! ;___; by Caroline Hoshhood - Mon, 16 Jan 2017 10:04:26 EST ID:DCAwwX3+ No.143910 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Ohshit. I fucked up, and my Rapid Rooter dried to basically dust over a 9 hour period. It was just about to be planted in my first ever hydro setup, and long story short, it and the seedling were not getting any water/humidity. I don't know how long it was this dry, but it must have been a couple of hours.

Immediately gave it fresh PHed water, installed in the hydro setup, bubbles going. Water touching the bottom of the RR, which has a root poking out the bottom (wasn't there 9 hours ago)! Humidity at 40% and rising, temp 77 stable. No change in 2 hours of bubble activation. Seedling is standing up, but leaves not open yet.

LEND ME YOUR ENERGY! DON'T LET MY FIRST EVER GROW DIE!

I added more soil a couple of weeks into vegging, as the pot was only like 2/3 full previously. Is it possible for the roots to grow up into the new soil, or that new roots will grow from the main stem?

if any part of the plant comes in contact with the soil it will form roots after a while but they wont be as many roots usually its better to lift the entire plant out and transplant with the new soil on the bottom of the container where the roots can easily reach

I have done something like this where I just add more soil to the top but the roots where poor comming off the main stem but if I was going to do it again I would have put root gel or powder on the main stem before burying it

pic related I buried this stem and it made a few roots straight out of the white main root stalk.

also roots don't look like this all pointing down that was something I did to the roots with manual techniques.

Not weed related, but this is an old trick for growing potatoes. Use a half-cask planter or something similar with 2-3cm of filtration pebbles at the bottom, 20-25cm of potting soil, compost and fertiliser or manure (horse manure is the best) mixture and then plant one potato plant per planter. After about two or three weeks, add 4cm of soil/compost mixture per week or two and by the time it's ready for harvesting you'll have baby spuds at the top for salads or sautéing, medium sized spuds for roasting or mashed potatoes in the middle and big French fry spuds at the bottom. Be sure to remove any pebbles or stones from the soil that you add to prevent deformed potatoes.

Yeah. I just hope it works.

I moved into a new house, that I actually OWN now, and my state legalized recreational use (sort of...they now want to walk the whole law back...) For the last year and a bit, I have had to try and find a good place for my grow. Hard as fuck when you have to worry about the cops. Plus, my neighbor is a nosey cunt.

I had all sorts of temperature issues with the places I put my crop. Attic got too cold in the winter. Basement got too hot in the summer, etc etc. Finally got some LEDs going for the summer grows, and now have a place that is stable enough temp-wise. But, it cost me a mother plant (RIP,) and a bunch of false starts and shit.

I am sort of in this mode where I am just waiting for some shit to go bad. :/

But yeah, I do have a plan. Switching from soil to hydro soon.... Want to get a final soil crop out. Have a nice rotation going. The Sativa was joined by another bagseed plant, so I have a staggered harvest setup that I hope to keep going. Clone them and throw one in every few weeks to flower.

Also have some GSC seeds that I think will be tasty as fuck once I get them going.

Would it be possible to use aquaponics in a small closet grow. If not, could I just get a fish tank and use the water from it to water plants growing in soil? If I did water the plants with the fish tank water, would that mean I wouldn't need to feed them any other nutrients? What are your opinions or experiences with aquaponics?

Well I mean there are a ton of tiny 1 or 2 fish set ups but it is a dumb idea.
I'm not even sure why anyone would want an aquaponic system other than it's novel. You can't manage nutrients or additive, and it's more upkeep for an inferior products.

I used to work at a hydroponics store and the only people who wanted aqua set ups were people who saw about it and thought "NEAT!" and self suffient prepper wannabes with too much spare time. Growing cabbage and tilapia at the same time for food.

In short OP, dish out the 300-400 bucks for a premade 1 or 2 plant set up and realize how dumb it is, or just stop trying to find novel shortcuts and just start reading up on micro/macro nutes and growth cycles like everyone else.

This.
Aquaponics is great on large scale. But, just a PITA on a small one. Basically, you have to learn to keep an aquarium AND grow plants hydroponically. Then you have to wait for the fish to get big enough to eat. Lot of work for a couple of fillets ever year or so!

Plus, the PH issues....hydro weed loves acidic water. You'd have to have fish that also like the PH the same.

LOL!
Yes, it could. The main thing is, you have to think of an aquaponics system like an actual farm. What that means is that you won't be harvesting the protein nearly as much as the veggies. And you will need to keep a tight balance on the nutes the fish produce for the veggies. Unless you have multiple setups with multiple "ages" for the fish and veggies, you are talking about a system where vegetables come out of it every few months (I guess you could go 3-4 weeks if you grow greens...) and fish comes out every year or two. It is a lot of work for little return. Economies of scale really factor into this shit.

My second grow, using Roleadro LED 46×3w and PH 6 Dutch soil.

My tap water is ~7.2, so I tried to use pH down on it (measured with pH test strips) and it seems that it was too much and the plant stopped getting N from the soil.

For the last 10 days I'm using just the tap water (boiled) and vegetative nutrient mix with N. I also moved the lamp higher from ~30cm to ~60cm.

I cut about 6 fully yellow bottom leaves but the upper ones are still getting yellow parts. Will it stop by itself or I should try some other measures?

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..

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!

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?

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.

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.
