How's she looking? by Ebenezer Crirringbanks - Wed, 04 Apr 2018 21:19:15 EST ID:Pxbv/uT0 No.145879 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

This is my third grow (over the course of a decade), and the best looking so far (the first two didn't have a vent fan set up and were huge messes). Mixed up the seedlings early on so I'm not 100% sure what the strain is, but given the characteristics and what I started with, I'm pretty sure its either Auto OG Kush or Auto Blue Cush Fast.

Temps are around 28c, which is a little higher than I'd like, but much better than I've managed before.

I think the fan leaves are getting light damage (probably because I'm still running 18/8, because Autos) but I don't think it'll get bad enough by the time I harvest. I don't have a very steady hand with the scope, but it looks like about half the trichomes are an opaque white. Given the rate its been maturing, I went ahead and began the flush.

I have to have a smoke alarm check in the building I have a 2 plants in, they don't need access to the room the tents are in, but they want to kill the mains power to check the alarms, which is obviously bad.

One plant is about a 5 weeks old, still in veg, the other is in week 4 of flower. I expect the power to be off for a maximum of 15-20 minutes. Will this be that much of an issue? It will throw my timers off which is annoying, but will something like this be enough to stop the plant from detecting dark for the short period the power will be off? https://www.lights4fun.co.uk/i/q/LL141705/3-warm-white-zap-led-battery-push-lights

It doesn't say how powerful the lights are but they're only for stopping complete darkness, and battery operated being the main thing.

I wouldn't worry about it. Summer storms can block out the sun for a few days and plants always do fine. You're plant will still be converting stored sugars into usable sugars for growth, without the use of light.

It's a good idea, but if stealth was my goal, then I would let them stay in the dark. They can go 24hr or more without light and be fine. If they can't then something was wrong with them before all this

Bumping this because I now have a new problem. My ceiling is leaking and will most likely result in the power being cut to repair it.

What is the absolute cheapest form of battery powered lights needed to keep a plant alive?

Yeah, interrupting the light period with darkness is fine up to a day or so. Its the interrupting the dark period with light (especially when flowering) that'll fuck things up for you.

I have thought of this, but I would rather have the filter on the inside somehow, so that the air is pulled through it instead of pushed. I could also get another filter and put them inside each tent, but then I would need a stronger fan I think +filter.

Filter on the exhaust won't work properly, first they need the dust filter on the outside, second the way they are constructed they require air to be sucked through them, not pushed (the pressure differential has to be in the one particular direction)

Just buy two filters and fans OP.
If you are really to cheap to do that you can put the outlet of one tent into the inlet of the other, temps will be higher in the second tent but at least this is a workable solution.

The filter in the box would work too but I think that building that box might cost you more than an extra filter.

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.

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?
