Just bought this from wal mart just now, as I flipped my plants into 12/12. This is my first grow and I'm ot really sure what's best. This ratio seems ok considering my plants are a bit lightER green than ideal, and the nitrogen in this fertilizer is high. Any thiughts? Is this stuff okay?

I remember reading that for flower miracle gro for cactus and succulents is good because it has low N and good amounts P and K. The label you posted itself says that it's coated for slow release so I think you're supposed mix that into the soil.

You fed it too much earlier on maybe a month ago at most, I can tell by the waxy older leaves. The newer top fan leaves are starving for calcium and magnesium or have PH lockout. Avoid a lot of nitrogen in bloom stage, the plant stops using it like it did in veg except for just enough to keep it alive and green. If you do use cheap nutes, always take the instructions with a grain of salt, they're recommending that much for outdoor plants that are constantly bombarded with rain and runoff, start at 1/4 of what they tell you to and adjust it from there.

People have used 0-50-30 in the first week of bloom just to shock the plant into the bloom phase faster, you don't want to use that for more than 2 feedings though, drop it down to something closer to 3-20-12 at 1/3 dose or 3-15-8 at half. Read the newest and oldest leaves, if the new leaves have burned tips, then you're using too much and need to flush it out pronto and start over with something more watered down.

HID lighting does some really bizarre shit sometimes, I was on a forklift once at my old job and I backed into a cement pillar so hard that the HPS bulb that was on the ceiling turned purple for like 10 minutes. One of my coworkers that saw it happen thought it was really funny. But buzzing slightly wouldn't worry me, just have a back up lamp ready in case that one gives up on you.

if your HPS bulb is in the late stage of its lifecycle and the gas conditions inside are sufficient then you may be hearing a resonance caused by the expanding metal.

So my first plant ever is at about one month of veg, and I'm wondering if now looks like a good time to switch to flower? I was thinking about a week from now, just looking for a couple ounces maybe. Working with a 150w HPS
At one month:
Main stem is 12 inches in length, plant sitting at 7 inches vertical. I have been LSTing the branches to keep them low. About 6 tops have made themselves clear but I'm not sure which will end up being the main colas

I should also note that these pictures were taking two or three days ago, and there has been a little more growth, about two inches. I have her trained down pretty well I think aside from her hanging off the edge of the pot, which was not intentional. I could supercrop her back in I suppose but as a first time grower I'm afraid I'd hurt the poor thing

I heard that one was trimmed in a machine, and one by hand.
Regardless, it is apples and ummm...another type of apple grown somewhere else.

Imagine a big red apple. Now imagine a smaller green apple.

Which one is "better?" Well, if you like green apples, the green one is. If you like red, the red one. Both are different and were grown differently for different markets. Same shit. There is no "ZOMG! WE IS GONNA DIES!" here.

In fact, there may be not be much here at all. This article from 2012, explains the problem. There were a handful of nute makers marketing to the weed community who were spiking their formulas with PGRs. They weren't divulging this or anything.


Now, that is 5 years ago. I have yet to hear of any dead people.

First time grower here, is my setup good enough? It's certainly nothing cutting edge, but I don't think it's too ghetto either.
I'm running a 150w HPS Sunsystem. The soil is Foxfarms Ocean Organic mix, I haven't used any nutes or fertilizers, might use Foxfarms Bloom for flowering. The light cycle has been kind of touch and go since I don't have a timer yet but I'm gonna get one soon. The longest dark period the plant has had has been 6 or so hours, we were trying to keep it at 19 on 5 off but my brother and I both work a lot. I plan to take the smaller plant out once it gets warmer and plant it outdoors so my main plant can have the entire light. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks!

Gonna lay down some basic info for you.
Heed this advice.
>Training properly
If you LST the plant (tying it down horizontally) you gotta put a counter string on the stem to keep it in place in the middle.
Otherwise it'll just grow to the other side of the container.

>Light cycles
Seriously, if you have a paying job, go buy a timer. I can't stress this enough.
Fluctuations with light cycles can cause a number of problems.
Get a cheap timer and put it on 20/4 or 18/6.

Get some and start feedings by using 1/2 or 1/4 of the recommended dose.

>Plant outdoors

The plant look small wouldn't bother until 3x the mass maybe even more.
especially when you got only 1 and plenty of room under the light

I assume the small one is the cloned top, you need to get a separate light for that when you flower the big one, some weak cfl will do to keep it alive.

Your only issue you'll hit with coco growing isn't just the lower PH you'll need compared to soil but coco has this weird relationship with calcium, it absorbs it and won't let the plant have as much as it needs, that's why coco formulations exist so they can pump it full of enough calcium to circumvent that.

So my crop has been stolen for the 3rd time now and I'm almost 100% certain I know the sorry piece of trash that did it. What I want to do is add a little something something to my next crop, this will be a decoy plant. Since I know it will be taken, I want the fucker to pay for it. Basically, I need some kind of chemical that will cause some lung damage or sickness if inhaled or smoked, but it won't hinder the plant from growing. As far as growing for personal use goes. It's all going to be indoor from now on. Tired of the shit stains that are too stupid and too lazy to grow their own herb coming and taking mine.

fishing line and hooks is a good idea but do it at shin level instead and maybe apply small amounts of doc, dob, dom, or a very very small amount of an nbxx psychedelic like 25i. starting to trip hard on any of those while trapped in the woods tangled in fishing line and fish hooks would be an extremely unpleasant time. The person would very likely be fine and would probably even be able to untangle themselves and get themselves to a medical center of some sort after a time.

Weed can take a decent amount of abuse. Especially as it grows larger. The worst that can happen with the light thing is she spends a day or two resetting herself, and grows slightly less for those two days.
