I've been looking at setups, strains, seeds, nutrients and places for a good grow. I believe I've found a place to get the genetics and a place to grow but I don't have much else. There are so many kinds of nutrients and growing mediums to use and ways to grow it's a little overwhelming to start out. I have never grown anything in my life, but I want too. I'm looking for information and suggestions for setups, basic beginner strains and seedbanks who can ship world wide. I looked at Royal Queen Seeds - Easy Bud, has anyone grown this strain before and is it worth it? Could anyone also suggest strains that are fast growing, hardy, and small? Also looking for Kinds of small setups for a plant or two and types of nutrients and when to use them are also very much appreciated.

I'd say any of the autos. It really doesn't matter too much, as long as you don't get weird and go with Auto Duck or some other weird shit. Some of it too depends on what you can get. I had a bunch of seeds I wanted to get, but couldn't because the damn vendor didn't ship to the US. Happens.

Light-wise...depends. That sounds prime for an LED grow. If you want cheap maybe a viparspectra 450 or something like that. Spend more, get better lights.

>Order some pre-sterilized grain spawn bags and a spore syringe
>Inoculate the bags and let them colonize.
>When they are halfway colonized, smush up the spawn and shake it around to spread the mycelium
>When fully colonized, cut off the top of the bags, add a 1 inch casing layer of wet coir or vermiculite on top
>Loosely fold the opening of each bag over and secure it with a single piece of tape or a paperclip in the middle to let some air in, leave the bags inflated to give the mushrooms room to grow
>Move the bag to a place where it will get some light to trigger pinning, give it a misting if there's no condensation on the sides.

This is about as simple as it gets. You don't need jars or a pressure cooker, your substrate's already sterilized and ready to go. You won't get as big of a yield as you would with using a monotub, but you don't have to go through the trouble of getting a tote, sanitizing it, drilling holes in it, lining it with plastic, and all that. And by having a bunch of small bags instead of one big monotub, you won't have all your eggs in one basket and a contamination won't be a massive loss.

rice boiled into cakes with vermeculite, then innoculate them with spores. you could buy the spores or just take a spore print by leaving a mushroom cap overnight on a piece of paper and then drawing up the spores mixed with water into a syringe.

LEDs vs HPS/MH lights! Which is better!?!

No, seriously, not to beat a dead horse, but I have been seeing some evidence that LEDs can now compete with traditional hot lights, in SOME WAYS when it comes to growing weed. Personally, I use a mix of cheap LEDs and MH in my veg area. The MH is a cheap 250W non-switchable ballast in hood rig that I got for free so...you know...why not? But, the LEDs do seem to work decently.

What are you guys using and what are your observations?

I am looking just for REPORTS, not an argument. Everyone has a different experience and genetics and all sorts.

Just want some data. Anecdotal as it is.

Pic unrelated - Only picture of a light I had in my folder. CFLs suck IMHO.

Yeah. On small scales, I think the HIDs have more going for them. Although my problem now is getting rid of the heat. Probably have to get a bigger hood with 6" ducts instead of 4". In the winter, I could go without any fans on the hood at all.

This is a ridiculously long video, but at around the 50 minute mark, they start talking about yield...LED vs HPS...as well as the complexities of cooling and moving all that heat around.

This video has some really good comparisons as they grew clones on HPS and LED at the same time. Some strains may be more LED friendly than others...Anyway, this video is worth watching. The guy he talks to....Horatio, seems to have a good grasp on things.

People think they need less ventilation with LED panels vs HID lights are delusional as fuck.
You need a certain amount of ventilation for every watt of electricity consumed and there it makes jack shit of a difference which kind of light is being used.
Simple thermodynamics 101 -- energy in equals energy out.

Yeah if you put a thermometer directly below a HID it will show a higher reading because of additional infrared coming from the bulb. So maybe temps will be lower at the top of the plants, but certainly not overall.
What you care about is the air temperature anyway because that is what affects air humidity and if you need lower temps no LED beats a cooltube/vented hood HID system.

Aren't LEDs more efficient though at turning those watts into usable energy and less heat?

I mean, the 1 watt in-1 watt out makes sense in terms of heat energy, but if LEDs are being more efficient, they will put out less heat and more light. I know that this is why LEDs are better than tungsten. Tungsten bulbs produce something like 80% heat per watt delivered. Not useful.
Ian Fullyshaw - Sun, 28 May 2017 16:40:24 EST ID:+feR4wOL No.144766 Ignore Report Quick Reply
Depends, at least a decent one does. But the difference is marginal. If you find a LED panel that is 20%, above a hps you are already pretty high end.
say 50% instead of 40% plug-to-photon
However almost all of that light ends up as heat again one way or the other. Besides the light not absorbed by the plants (which gets transformed into heat directly) only the part that is used to either a) evaporate water or b) is stored in form of chemical energy (building plant matter) isn't converted.
Organisms aren't that efficient at doing that....

Evaporated water probably plays the largest factor but that is depending on infrared and temperature too.

Once LEDs become so efficient that you don't have to cool them you might come back and do some experiments about that.

That said, don't buy the mangenta colored light chinesium led panels.

Warm white COBs are more efficient, don't give you issues like bleaching from a poor spectrum and cost about the same watt-for-watt if you can figure out a way to cool them.

Yeah, been looking at the COB builds. Planning on doing one myself, as soon as I can design a good rig to hang it from. I'd also toying with the idea of building them into a DIY light mover system.

So, and this is something I am still trying to get a hold of, so bear with my stupidity, when we are talking heat...actual heat that you would have to remove from the grow area, what is the savings of say COB vs HPS/MH lights?

And let me clarify...I am thinking of the larger grows. Say 1,000 sq ft in a warehouse. Will the COBs throw out 80% of the heat an HPS/MH system would, and would such a setup require so much cooling that the economics make it a draw? Or does that 20% save you enough in extra cooling BTUs and straight power to make this kind of investment worth it?

It seems far more cut and dry on the smaller grows. Not so sure commercially, although it seems that if it saves a grower even 5% a year, that could be the difference between profit and a loss.

the question you need to ask yourself is are you getting more than 14 hours of sunlight. less than that and you run the risk of having the plant try to flower, if its rainy and cloudy that risk is slightly higher. temperature is important but so long as it stays above freezing your fine. also you never put seedlings outside the chance of a seedling making it vs a 2-4 week old plant is astronomical. They get eatin, swamped by rain, knocked over by wind all manner of bullshit you dont want

Free Leonard

It was named after Leonard Peltier who killed 2 FBI agents on tribal land during a dispute. It was a cross between one of the original Neville pre 1988 G13 and a cancer patient who has since died, one of his male chocolopes. There were only a few hundred seeds of this originally, and I got 10 of them. I've never grown anything that had colas on them that were over 2 feet long and if you laid the plant out flat, from tip of one to the tip of another was nearly 6 feet in length.

Sort out the small white and green ones, then stick those in a pill bottle in the fridge until you go to sprout them. They'll keep longer in cold storage and sometimes will sprout sooner if they think that winter has come and gone when you go to pull them out of the fridge.

I smoke .5g a day, often don't smoke during the week too. Trust me it wouldn't take much to keep me permanently stocked.

Depending on how far along the clones are when I get them, I might veg them for a bit too.

I can legally grow 12 plants total, only 6 of which can be in flower. Technically speaking the state constitution makes it so I can have under 25 plants, but I'm not gonna push it.
So the plan is to immediately flower 6 clones, while I also veg 3-6 clones.

Growth in plants is based on their surface area, the light they can get, and their nutes.

If you are getting all the nutes there...you need to have some time to simply build up leaf mass. As the leaf mass builds up, the plant gets exponentially bigger.

I do DWC, so I can literally see how much my plant consumes in water/nutes a day. My 4" clone right now, who is doing really great...is drinking milliliters. In three weeks, it will be closer to 1/4 gallon. A day. My big girls whom I just threw into flower are sucking down 1/2 gallon+ a day.

That is a massive difference. Trust me, it is worth the extra month or so of veg.

As I said, if the plants were too small, they would get a little veg first.
>Depending on how far along the clones are when I get them, I might veg them for a bit too.

The picture I posted is just the only clone picture any dispensary around had that wasn't a tiny pic of several rows of clones in a display. It's like 50 miles away or so, and I'm probably never going to it, meaning that I likely would never get clones from them, unless they had a strain I really wanted. So please, stop focusing on it. Neither of my questions have been answered.

I also don't want to grow megaplants or anything, and I don't want high as fuck yields. I'm a mega lightweight. Half a gram gives me enough smoke sessions to be high from noon to when I go to bed at around 10 or 11, and enough extra for a wake n' bake the next morning.

I don't want to grow too much, basically. I only am growing for myself, and if I keep the yields down this run then I can have a next run without a stupid amount of surplus. If I can squeeze about 2 ounces out of 6 plants this first run, I'm happy. If I fail to do that, no big deal, there will be bigger plants after.

Actually, it is easier with bigger plants. And we aren't talking 10 foot tall vegged-since-December-in-Humboldt beasts. We are talk two feet.

The big advantage with a bigger plant is that you have more of a buffer for your fuck ups. Little plants die from a lack of things or too much of something far quicker than a bigger plant.

Trust me, veg for 4 weeks and you will find it easier. It does help. And then if you get too much yield, gift some away. Not sure about your concern there.

Heyheyy, welcome to my grow journal.
Pull up a chair and lets find out what we can achieve with the most basic equipment.
The seeds sprouted at 21.12, they had a hard time the first couple of weeks.
I didn't realize that running 24/0 light cycles was seriously stunting the growth.
Saw immediate improvement when the cycle was changed to 18/6.
The more I know.
The first pic is from 29.1
There wasn't much to document before this time.

Damn, I can't catch a break.

Found some tiny mold spots on a few nugs.
Glad I noticed when I did, cause that could've spread pretty fast.

Culled the whole thing to minimize the loss.
I know I could've just snip out the moldy parts and let her go on.
But didn't really seem worthwhile at this point.

So I guess this concludes the journal.

Things really didn't end up going as well as I hoped.
But, that's what I get for having a shitty setup and trying to get a huge yield.

I hope that this journal can help someone who's new to growing.

And the danks themselves.
I got about 40-50 grams dry.
Been blazing since the chopping so there's no way to tell surely.

The smoke is pretty awesome. Definitely full-on indica.
It hits pretty hard and wake n' bakes are getting on a narcotic-high kind of level.
But in the end it just gets you kinda sleepy and really hungry.

The buds smell pretty funky. It's kinda like a mix of pine forest and chloride.
Dunno what is up with that.
But when you grind some, you get that fruity skunk smell.
It's pretty unique I must say.

For a bit early chop this smoke is really pleasing.
The buds have a thick coating of trichs and are pretty hard on the surface.

Anyone else like to experiment with their plants? Like LST, air layering, vegetative propagation, etc?

This is a mother plant that I am messing with. I'm growing the lowest branches downwards. The goal will be to stake each of them to the soil, so that they will shoot out roots. Literally, no real practical purpose to this. But, interesting to experiment with. Also trying some air layering, but with that I intend to see if it cuts time off of vegetative growth vs a traditional clone.

Here is a pic of how I did it...well, a series of them...

This is a section of bag wrapped around a "riot rooter," plug that I wrapped around the branch after scoring it some and applying rooting hormone.

Here is what it looks like inside.

This is what I found going on after over a month of air layering.

Not great. Just some nubby "proto-roots."

So, I took the thing down and shoved the bottom into a DWC bucket I am running for a new clone. It doesn't look happy about it, but WTF. Maybe it will root finally. Or not. IDKAF.

I have to figure out what I did wrong. I thing I should have also bagged the branch it was on. Treat it like a clone under a dome. Maybe that encourages root growth.

I have been continuing my "run branches down," and see if they root experiment. Right now the biggest problem is that lowered branches don't seem to get as much nutes as the rest of the plant. Growth is very slow on these.

So, this cutting....which is like, a foot or so tall, seems to be doing OK-ish jammed into my DWC sprout bucket. In the morning it looks perfectly fine. As the day goes by, it wilts a bit. I am pretty sure the "root bumps," are pulling water in. Just not enough for this big cutting during the day though. So it wilts as the day goes by and then when photosynthesis stops, it has an 8 hour period to suck up water. Perks up....gets back to normal...cycle repeats.

I expect that as the days go by, the wilting will either get worse, or get markedly better. Some tissue down there is sucking in water and can decide to root if it wants to. If it does...less wilting until there is none and I have a decent root system. I am really surprised this worked at all.

One of these things is not like the others... by Priscilla Bubberwune - Thu, 27 Apr 2017 18:41:45 EST ID:yQAH+DuU No.144650 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Show me your casual basic gardens. Backyard or balcony. House or flat. Show me your ingenuity and laziness and simplicity. How did you plant them? Do you compost?

Also before i get called out on the onion flowers. I just want it to be known the flowers are being used for cooking purposes. Yoy know, for science.

Mine is a week or two from going in. Stupid weather. Pumpkins, tomatoes, peppers, cannabis, corn, gourds and watermelon. No idea if some of these will work.

The perrenials are my blueberry bush...already leafing out nicely after a mild winter. Which is good. A grape vine that didn't grow much last year, but hopefully will this year. Just a few feet and it will hit a super sunny spot and really take off. Also have a pear tree along a fence. Have to figure out how to keep the pears from getting eaten by squirrels....
