Came home from work and my new seedling has sprouted!

Strain is Dinafem's Blue Cheese. According to Dinafem, flowering time for Blue Cheese is 50 days, and should begin before the plant reaches 15 inches.

Grow medium is Fox Farm's Ocean Forest mixed 50/50 with perlite in a 4-gallon grow pot. Nutes are Fox Farms trio, Grow Big, Big Bloom, and Tiger Bloom. From what I understand, Ocean Forest is nutrient-rich enough that adding nutes isn't necessary until flowering begins.

I'll be vegging her under a 2 ft T5 with two 24-watt bulbs, and three 42 watt CFLs. At the moment only the T5 and one of the CFLs is on, the other two will come on once she gets a little bigger. For flower, I'll be using a 300 watt Mars Hydro LED. The LED arrived earlier today, never used one before. Despite being pretty cheap, construction is solid and all the lights work properly. There's no on/off switch, which I don't like, but it shouldn't be an issue.

I don't know whether I'll be scrogging this plant or mainlining.

All bags inoculated. The 4 GTs are all bright white and fluffy, but the two PE's are grayish and mossier looking. The first PE never fruited, seems likely the syringe was contaminated.

Yep, all shrooms harvested so far came from a bag with a built in self-healing injector port. The bags without the built in port are cheaper though, if a little riskier to inoculate.

just the bottom right tub was dry.

yeah, your Golden teacher bag seems to have suitable genetics. is there a specific reason why you opted against trays in a greenhouse or monotubs? you could easily double your yield and make rehydrating between flushes easier, the contam risk isnt that high with coir/verm bulk substrate if your spawn is healthy .

what temp are those heating beds set too? with bags you have to be wary of internal temperature.

i dont know how much work and money you are willing to invest, but at what 25 bucks a bag you might want to get a big PC - maybe an all american? rye and empty bags are cheap as fuck. i get rye for something like 28 bucks per 50kg -plus 5 bucks shipping cost- and microfilter bags at 85 cents per piece. so not counting verm, coir and gypsum which are piss cheap you could get between a hundred to two hundred grams per kg of grain

allthough sterilizing bags is quite time intensive opposed to the half litre jars i often use.

i also recommend moving onto agar work since it enables you to preserve genetics of a well fruiting culture, and using liquid innoculant shortens colonization time of grain by 4-6 days at least

Week five of flower.

Clones all recovered from transplant, growing nicely. Strangely, IG#3 on the far right has developed buds, and its fan leaves are covered with trichomes. Reminds me of the first time I grew an auto.

I'm a newbie to shroom growing, and the bag tek seemed like a cheap and low risk starting point. For the most part it's worked well, it was easy to integrate into the grow room, prep and maintenance has been pretty easy, and it's still giving flushes. I've tripped almost daily for the past month and still have plenty of shrooms to last until the new bags start yielding. That said, will probably move on to jars and tubs once I get more experienced. The pack of six 1-pound bags cost $33 shipped so not a huge investment, a nice pressure cooker, agar solutions, laminar hood, ect are all on the wishlist for the future.

Noticeably darker in color than the GT, not nearly as fluffy. Lots of yellow fluidy excretions. It may indeed be cobweb. Probably gonna toss the two PE's outside into the mulch pile.

i wouldnt toss them since at the moment theyre still well contained and some cubensis mycellium can be very whispy. a good way to identify cobweb without a magnifying glass is to measure the speed at which the mycellium spreads.
but the secretion sounds like cubensis fighting off some bacteria never had cobweb do that before. if you should have to toss it be sure not to carry too much spores back to your grow room.

and hey, congratulations on taking up such a nice hobby.
im still amazed that its possible to turn horseshit into such a great drug

and you really dont have to have a laminar flowhood eventhough it makes so much more comfortable, a big SAB is good enough for agar work and prepping inoculant syringes.

I've read this brand of jam jars in the picture are fine to use.Any one used them ? I have a 9ml syringe how many of these 370g jars could I fill up(will be using a mono tub afterwards)

Also read you can use pint drinking glass.just put a bit of tyvek over the top then wrap 3 layers of tin foil over the top.

you can use jar without a threading, but id recommend against it.
those glasses are good but you'd have a lot of marmelade. couldnt you order spawn bags over the internet? i really like to use bags for monotubs. any kind of jar that has a top with a popping mechanism will work

>add gypsum to your grain as you soak them
>i normally tape the holes up with medical pore tape, instead of tyvek, but thats only because i find it more convenient
>pressure cook for atleat 90min at 15psi, be careful not to have the glasses in direct contact with the bottom of the cooker.
>be sure to shake the syringe, dont mix the grains after injecting. the spores have to come in contact with eachother, shake at 30% percent colonization

id recommend against popcorn, i find it finicky to get the moisture right. popcorn often ends in bacterial contamination for me. if you could order online you can get it really cheap

id recommend getting the biggest PC you can afford as long as you know it runs at atleast 15psi. once youve chosen a PC you can calculate which jars would fill it in the most efficient way

im really high right now, please feel free to ask any questions

When your trichomes/crystals start to lean over like this, and when they're roughly half milky and half amber in color, is when it's done and ready to harvest.

A plant is ready for harvest when all the stigmas have turned orange/brown and receded into the calyxes which should be swollen. At this point the trichome heads will be milky and amber. If there are white stigmas left in the plant, it's more than likely not ready. Sometimes new white stigmas appear when the plant is under stress, for example if it's being flushed. Stigmas that appear at this point should be ignored.

Pictured plant is almost ready to be harvested. Pictured plant is not ready for harvest even though most of the stigmas on most of the buds were orange.

2-3 weeks ago i found a seed in my weed. I decided "why the hell not" . So i planted in a decent sized pot, with flower soil, fertilizer included. had it under a halogen light for the first 1 1/2 week. This week bought a Led grow light, pretty sexpensive. Does it look ok to be around 3 weeks old? Should i tranplant it not or wait. got no idea what the roots look like at this point, dont even know how to lift it all out of the pot.

thankfull for tips and stuff. And i know i want a female. but a male could work too. how many grams yield am i looking at if its a male? think in terms of cannabutter.

No It's not. Because most people don't grow in an industrial style 365 days a year what counts is what you get for each grow.
In addition good strains yield the same independently of how long they take.

It's looking great now, right before the stage it's at now, like a week prior, is when you can start to feed it a complete veg formula and not have to worry about it being stunted. That plant in week 5 is what most should look like in week 4.

The taco shape curling is very indicative of russet mites. A good dose of pyrethrin based bug spry like Worry Free would clear that up for sure. Russets are microscopic and very hard to detect without at least a 16x magnification loupe or scope, the discoloration looks to be a nutrient problem. I would assume its due to high PH. start watering with some 6.0 water and you should see an improvement to your new growth.

OK the burnt tips in this pic look like signs of micronutrient defiency; most likely Mg or Zn.

the cupped leaves here are a sign the plant is trying to dissipate moisture from it's system.

yellowing of the leaves starting a the bottom are a sign of nitro deficency, but the purpling of the stems indicates that it's not N you're lacking, but sulphur.

The spotting and discoloration are another sign of micronute def. Looks like Mn.

Most likely what you need to do is add a moderate doase of a good broad-spectrum micronutrient; specifically one high in sulphur, manganese and zinc. Also, don't water quite so often. Water absorbs and retains heat much better than earth or matrix does and NorCal gets enough sun that constantly sopping roots become a breeding ground for pythia and root rot, both of which can produce that "burnt" look at the edges and tips of leaves. Add a little H2O2 to your nutrient solution when wattering for a few weeks to kill any root-pathogens that may have cropped up.

please stop spreading the micronutrient meme around, 95% of cases is something completely unrelated to micronutrients, and 4,95% you can fix those micronutrient related problems by fixing your pH/stopping salt build up

Diagnose this please. Happens to the oldest and biggest leaves first, eventually spreads to the whole plant until nothing is left. Happens in the first month of vegetation, growth is halted, plants never become more than 30cm tall before this hits.

Growing in soil. Soil is a nice airy mix. Not overwatering. Ph is normal for water and soil. Temperatures are normal. Light is not too close.

To expand on this, I believe Chlorine easily replaces Potassium so the water itself could be depriving your plants of any Potassium in your soil.

Potassium would have mottled leaves, this kind of looks like zinc to me, it yellows the leaf in reverse from an iron deficiency from the tip backwards with interveinal chlorosis

What type of water do you start out with, OP? You should be starting out with rainwater or PH balanced water with NOTHING in it zero PPM to start. You then add your Cal/Mag, then regular nutes, balance the PH again to around 6.3-6.7, keep your PPM's below 900 for indoor until you get used to your strain and what it requires.

Top is Northern Lights, left is Blue Cheese and right is Strawberry Cough.

Strawberry is being a bit crippled, was bent over at an angle and looks kinda yellow. Grown strawberry before and it's comparatively short for a sativa so with some training height shouldn't be a problem. Looking forward to seeing how they do.

Strawberry and northern lights seem to have enjoyed the trim, blue cheese got a bit over trimmed but it's kinda lanky in places so really wanted to make sure the light gets to as many sites as possible.

Northern lights is starting to get noticeably ahead of the others flowerwise, blue cheese looks like a slow flowerer, not as squat as other phenos I've had.

Turns out the blue cheese is the low yielding sativa leaning pheno like the one I posted above again, super stretchy and spindly :( Other 2 plants responded really well to the liberal trimming and are looking to have nice long uniform buds on each stem with a few small ones in the middle that stretched up.

Got sent a huge bag of horse manure instead of soil from an amazon seller today, called to find out what happened and they said they don't actually sell the brand of soil they were advertising, only a 'similar product'. Horse shit is not similar to soil.

tldr, will a germed seed be ok left in the tissue for just over 24 hours until the soil arrives?

4 gr of dried shrooms in my country cost $17,5. By the way, is it a legit price for the 1st world countries? Had I an opportunity (and I kinda got it), I would make 1 kg on a trial basis during two months. That would make $4375 at best. I get 40% of the dough, so it's ~$1750 (at max, yet not less than $800 a month) in two months. Wiki says it's a median salary in Poland, lol.

I ended up having my financier back out and have been stuck trying to scrape by to make a living. I had zero luck trying to get a job in the production side of the industry until yesterday when out of the blue I get a call from a family friend saying that she just got hired as an office administrator for a farm and that the owner just fired his head grower and she told him all about me and he wanted me to come in for an interview like right now. So i drive out there and have a 2 hour conversation with the dude about what I know about growing and he hires me on the spot and I start Monday.

All that said, though I have been growing off and on for the past 5 years... the largest crop that I had ever tended to was 20 plants for a med grow in Denver and pretty much all I did was set up his lighting and hydro and co2 and left the grow itself in his hands. other than that I grew 4 plants in a grow tent for a couple crops with my buddy in college. Though I have read several text books and blogs and forums about growing and could tell you just about anything you'd want to know about how to grow because I do have a deep true passion for the art and its the one thing I've ever done that i feel completely confident in my ability to do... I have basically no experience and I am about to be in charge of a 2000 sq ft grow operation in a 15000 sq ft warehouse that the owner wants to expand as fast as we can afford to and I'm kind of shitting bricks right now. This is a brand new farm by the way. They just finished curing their second crop which yielded about 12 lbs. I'm very confident that if I had been there from the beginning and helped set up the operation and grow rooms and helped work through the first two harvests that I would be like the most qualified person on earth to run the thing and produce top shelf nugs all day. But coming in 4 months later with a method and equipment put together by someone else rocking nutes I've never heard…

Wicked stuff my man, looking to do something similar where I live as the law is changing swiftly, for the good.

Digging the advice. Helps out alot if I get the gig! And is great knowledge to have for the future!

Just out of interest how much is your income? I live in a different country but I'm just intersted as to what to charge for this sort of job. If i get the opportunity to persue it.

I'm not interested in big bucks but I do enjoy not having to worry too much.

First time grower here now that I legally can in the state of Maine and I was watching the weather not long ago and heard we might have some frost coming our way tonight. It's supposed to get warm again starting tomorrow and the plants still have a little longer to go(the hairs on the buds are still white). Just wondering if I should cover them.

You would need a poly tunnel in Maine

I'd cover them. Your big bug-a-boo is moisture now. Cool temps and moisture = bud rot. Been fighting it like Spartans down here in eastern Massholia. I started covering during rains, and so far so good. Others have not been so lucky.

Temp-wise cannabis is pretty hardy. Once it is big enough, it can fend off low temps like a champ. Especially the stuff bred to grow outside in places like BC, northern Europe, etc. In fact, after last night's cold snap, I noticed that my buds have actually retracted a bit, and are nice and dense. Just a week or two longer and I should be harvesting some dense nuggets. Cold night temps also give you purps, if the plant is so inclined. Just cover it at night when rain, dew or frost is predicted. If the day is the usual sunny, warmish fall, you get this time of year, then uncover the plants and let them soak in the sun. You don't even need to wholly cover them. Just a clear plastic tarp from Home Depot and four stakes. Make a canopy to keep the rain and dew out while allowing the natural air circulation you need to keep the buds dry. A light breeze on a sunny day is your friend.

Yeah, well I had to harvest because I got the bud rot. Just a bit, but still...would have been nice to have had another couple of weeks.
