I just bought a san pedro cutting and im wondering if I need to cut away the bottom part for it to make new roots? As you can see in the picture its dried but it looks like its broken off not cut off, if that matters.

If you're still around it should be good just add some perlite and soil mixture. For mine I just dug up some dirt from my yard (florida) strained it then mixed it up with perlite. My Cacti already doubled in height in a little over a year.

I used to have a large cactus and succulent garden, just chuck it in some sandy soil, it will be fine. I took some cuttings for a friend once and forgot about them, maybe a month later I remembered and checked on them and they were still good to go.

Hey /crops/,

First time here. I have this little seedling that's about 6 weeks old now, and hasn't really grown taller in about four weeks. There was a bit of mould growing on the shell when in was in the paper towel germinating, but it doesn't seem to have any now that it's planted. I'd say its about a centimetre tall.

Is there anything I can do to make it grow taller?

The first left cup is a Beyond Dream from North genetics and the right 3 are autos from farmerjoeparker. The BD is over a month old and the autos are a couple weeks. Am I doing something wrong or am I not patient? Soil is cheap shit and nutrients are from an organic tea concentrate

You shouldn't give nutrients at all to newborns. Start with a bale of Pro-Mix or other sterile soil that has nothing but beneficial bacteria in it, you don't begin to feed them regularly until you see the 3rd set of leaves, even the biggest one of yours to the left is only on it's first set.

The autos look fine. You could probably use better soil though. Not sure on the BD, since sometimes there are just "runts" in the pack that need some extra time to catch up.

Alrighty...I've done an indoor grow log and learned a lot, now for an outdoor grow log!

In a legal state. I can grow outside if it isn't viewable from the road. I have a smallish backyard (big for the area,) that gets a mix of partial and full sunlight for most of the day. I don't have a shit-ton of space, because I also like to grow other things like tomatoes, and peppers, and even some soybeans this year. I sort of have the sunniest areas staked out already, so I know who will do best, where.

Anywho, I have this nice little patch that gets a ton of southern exposure for most of the day. I could MAYBE cram a full outdoor LST in there, but any standard plant would start peeking over the fence.

This is also my first ever outdoor grow. So, I am a bit worried I might fuck it up, or worse, some raccoons or some shit will. With that and the space issue in mind, I am going autoflower. Yeah, auto for outdoors seems counter intuitive, but A) My risk to reward ratio is better here. I am growing 2 plants in a legal state. There isn't a need for me to max out so I can get the most out of the risk I am taking. Which is none.
Plus, I can cram it in there and MAYBE even get a second harvest out of that space this season.

On to biddyness -

I went with Autopilot XXL, which is just the auto version of Big Bud XXL. A heavy yielding Indica dominate strain from Ministry of Cannabis. Not many grow logs on them btw...so we will see.

These are my little imps. At 6 days after emerging from the peat. A little lankier than I'd like, but I've had them outside twice and they are hardening off wonderfully. Hope to have them in the ground within the week. And then it is just grow-grow-grow!!!

Well, after a shitty winter's day (I had to turn the heat on in June,) temps have shot back up. Figured this was my best time to get them in the ground since in a couple of days it will be in the 80s. Don't want them to fry in the cups waiting to be transplanted.

They are in the ground and doing well for a plant that has been in and out more than a cat.

So I got everything ready but I'm worried as fuck. It's time for my to plant my shit and I have no clue what to do. I live in a small town in a rural area with no car and I have some train tracks here and a trail behind some private property for a water treatment center with a stream leading down it.

The train tracks have a ton of open fields around them with moderate movement around them but I'm really worried they will get big and stick out like crazy. I've seen a Fran fields where everything's just overgrowth and that looks okay but I don't think they go too deep without running into woods

So, I just got a cheap 18 site cloning bucket.
This thing is umm....crazy...

I stuck three cuttings from a GSC Extreme mother on Tuesday. Ran it per instructions and used their nutes and shit.

Usually, when I clone, the cuttings droop a bit and look like, well, like they have been cut off a plant.

In this cloner? Fucking standing straight and tall and perfectly green. You would think they already had a root system. No sign of stress at all. Post some pics tomorrow when the lights are out. Really impressed. Easy to setup and seems to be working. Hopefully, by Tuesday I will have some roots!

Surprisingly easy. I get the impression full-on aeroponics is much harder. This is simple. Like, 5 minutes and it was running. Already had my first clone root. Sadly, I fucked up the next day and forgot to plug in the bucket after moving it, and she died. Power outages will fuck you hard on this.

Really effective though. I was all "Aeroponics? Isn't that some Wesley Crusher level shit?" and then discovered that this was really basic.

For some strange reason my short term memory isn't that good and once in a while I forget to turn it back on.

If you are growing with natural light, the shorter days of autumn will cause it to start flowering. You just need to have a way to keep light from getting to them at night

Hey, this is my indoor system and I would like to know what else I could put in it. It is a 60x60x170 tent, 250 watts sodium, lights 20/4. They "big" one is an unknown automatic seed that was given to me, the other four are random buddha automatics. Big one has a 10 liter pot and the other ones are 7 liters, which I will change to 11 liters ones. Soil is ATAMI. I'm currently using mineral fertilizers for flowering in the big one and growing in the rest.

when you have white hairs you don't want water on the plant itself because that can help the mold grow try and keep the leafs dry next time

also too many nutrients is what caused the seed pods to not develop and turn into leafs instead........

Hi guys.
I've been trying to learn more about the indoor growing and I've some question about the whole light led watts stuf.

I assumed the LED is more efficient than other types of light per watt and if I calculated it right you would need about 100 watt of led for 2-2.5 square feet.
to be specific I am thinking of a box with 45cm(17,7inch) by 55cm(21.6inch) which should be 2.6 square feet.
does this sound like enough for one plant?
cause as of right now, I think the light with that setup while using led will cost me about 20$ not counting fixtures and wires, but their cost is negligeble so I don't take it into acount.

Also is that enough space for one plant? High can be as high as 2m (more than 6'0) so I assume this is not the issue either.

I checked and apparently it's algae. It could get into the roots and slow down the growth, so it's time to transplant.

So, the draw on those led is actually about 30W
And had to modify the Height, it is more limited now.
And here arose a problem that I wasn't expecting, the motherfucker keeps growing in height to the light. It is already 80cm(31inch) and I can maybe add another 20cm (8 inch) or so.
added 8cm to height yesterday, and today it has already compensated for it. Right now it is only 2cm (1 inch) away from the light.
I assume it grows like that since it is lacking light, I read about the symptoms and it seems like this is it, tall stems lots of space between nodes.
I love this virile lanky motherfucker, but I was not expecting that.
I can think of two options, raising the hight (but because of the design I can only add the whole 20cm right now, can't do incriments like I did before, at least I hasn't figured out a way yet, I might have an idea, but it needs work) or spread the light and let it grow past them till it hits the ceiling whichi is about 20cm (8 inch) away, if it even will, cause it seems like lanky stops at that 2cm(1 inch) mark.
Anyone got any experience with such an issue?
All are welcome to share their ideas

Is it good or bad to put tiny plants outside when there's a lot of rainy weather coming? They're about 8 inches or so maybe going on a foot soon.

I'm doing a ton of reading since I can legally grow now, but pardon my noobiness. I want to start growing in the beginning of January. My plan is to leave the plants outside until it gets dark, then bring them in so they continue getting light so they won't flower early. How much light will they really need just to not flower? Do I really need to invest in a light just for after sunset? Or will setting the plants near the lamp that is lighting the room anyways be enough? I live in southern california so temperature shouldn't be an issue.

The plants sprouted about 8 weeks ago now.

They got some tiny black mites for a while from my parsley plant, but I tried to pick all of the bugs off and made some pesticide out of thai chilis, garlic, onion, and water. It seems to have worked.

I just transplanted them to larger pots with potting soil, and this time a little charcoal instead of perlite since I had it.

resurrecting this thread from the depths of page 5 with updates. Feels damn good to look at my plants now compared to >>143922

Here's what the plants look like today. I was planning on letting the plants veg for a lot longer, but I was hoping to force them into flowering by leaving them outside. I wanted to give the weed to my roommate before I graduated, but now I'm graduating in 2 weeks and I'm just going to keep the plants.

The one female flowering plant was a free feminized bonus seed I got for buying anything. The other 3 are random sativa dominant seeds. The dying plant had male flowers, so I just stopped watering it. The middle two plants show no signs of flowering.

-how long does it take for these flowers to get bigger? seems to be taking a long ass time.
-I've been picking the dying/mostly dead leaves off my plants. Should I be doing this? I'm pretty sure it's a good idea. I doubt they're photosynthesizing anymore.
-should I continue fertilizing the flowering plants? I know they need less N and more P once they're flowering. I took a month or two break from fertilizing all of the plants out of laziness, just gave them some yesterday, and I just gave a tiny bit to the flowering plant.

Laaaame. Get a 4-in-1 socket splitter for that lamp and some E27 LED spots.
