I can't bring myself to agree totally with this graph, UVB in the 375-395nm range will help the plant to produce more resins as a defense mechanism against getting sunburned. This has been shown by using UVB reptile lights in bloom, and they spike in the blue range instead of the red which otherwise shouldn't help at all in bloom.

COBs are easy to cool because all you have to do is use thermal glue to attach them to just about any size CPU heat sink, then affix the proper 90mm fan that goes onto that cooler. The sky is the limit, you can even water cool them if you want to push a 100-150W rated COB to 175-200W. Otherwise heat buildup is what kills them quickest.

Isn't UVB shorter wavelengths than 375-395nm? That is UVA to my knowledge. And AFIK no other light besides specialized florescent bulbs provide it, so if you want the benefit you'd have to supplement it either way.

275-320, you're right. They claim to make LEDs that can reach that wavelength but they're around 10x as expensive and last I checked they were a lot weaker in intensity.

These seedlings looked okay when I had them growing in sunlight but as soon as I put them under a CFl they started doing this weird thing where the leaves are pointing upwards. What is causing it? Too much light?
I move the light a bit higher to see if it fixed the issue. Any help would be much appreciated. I already fucked up 3 of the 5 seedlings due to damping off I dont want to lose these ones

I was really just germinating in the coco because the soil i used last time seemed a bit dodgy. It was cheap stuff and seemed like any (non cannabis) plants I grew in it did badly. I dont really have a feeding chart. I was planning to buy some nutes later on. At first the leaves looked a bit pale so I gave them a super-diluted feed with some generic nute but the next day they looked burnt so I flushed them. Ive probably fucked them up with all this messing about, its my first time using 100% coco like this. I think Ill go back to my usual seedling soil mix for my next grow.

I keep my CFL around 4 inches from the plant. Basically as close as you can get without feeling the warmth off the light. Anything past 8 though and it won't be getting much usable light with CFLs.

Ohshit. I fucked up, and my Rapid Rooter dried to basically dust over a 9 hour period. It was just about to be planted in my first ever hydro setup, and long story short, it and the seedling were not getting any water/humidity. I don't know how long it was this dry, but it must have been a couple of hours.

Immediately gave it fresh PHed water, installed in the hydro setup, bubbles going. Water touching the bottom of the RR, which has a root poking out the bottom (wasn't there 9 hours ago)! Humidity at 40% and rising, temp 77 stable. No change in 2 hours of bubble activation. Seedling is standing up, but leaves not open yet.

if any part of the plant comes in contact with the soil it will form roots after a while but they wont be as many roots usually its better to lift the entire plant out and transplant with the new soil on the bottom of the container where the roots can easily reach

I have done something like this where I just add more soil to the top but the roots where poor comming off the main stem but if I was going to do it again I would have put root gel or powder on the main stem before burying it

pic related I buried this stem and it made a few roots straight out of the white main root stalk.

also roots don't look like this all pointing down that was something I did to the roots with manual techniques.

Not weed related, but this is an old trick for growing potatoes. Use a half-cask planter or something similar with 2-3cm of filtration pebbles at the bottom, 20-25cm of potting soil, compost and fertiliser or manure (horse manure is the best) mixture and then plant one potato plant per planter. After about two or three weeks, add 4cm of soil/compost mixture per week or two and by the time it's ready for harvesting you'll have baby spuds at the top for salads or sautéing, medium sized spuds for roasting or mashed potatoes in the middle and big French fry spuds at the bottom. Be sure to remove any pebbles or stones from the soil that you add to prevent deformed potatoes.

Yeah. I just hope it works.

I moved into a new house, that I actually OWN now, and my state legalized recreational use (sort of...they now want to walk the whole law back...) For the last year and a bit, I have had to try and find a good place for my grow. Hard as fuck when you have to worry about the cops. Plus, my neighbor is a nosey cunt.

I had all sorts of temperature issues with the places I put my crop. Attic got too cold in the winter. Basement got too hot in the summer, etc etc. Finally got some LEDs going for the summer grows, and now have a place that is stable enough temp-wise. But, it cost me a mother plant (RIP,) and a bunch of false starts and shit.

I am sort of in this mode where I am just waiting for some shit to go bad. :/

But yeah, I do have a plan. Switching from soil to hydro soon.... Want to get a final soil crop out. Have a nice rotation going. The Sativa was joined by another bagseed plant, so I have a staggered harvest setup that I hope to keep going. Clone them and throw one in every few weeks to flower.

Also have some GSC seeds that I think will be tasty as fuck once I get them going.

Would it be possible to use aquaponics in a small closet grow. If not, could I just get a fish tank and use the water from it to water plants growing in soil? If I did water the plants with the fish tank water, would that mean I wouldn't need to feed them any other nutrients? What are your opinions or experiences with aquaponics?

Well I mean there are a ton of tiny 1 or 2 fish set ups but it is a dumb idea.
I'm not even sure why anyone would want an aquaponic system other than it's novel. You can't manage nutrients or additive, and it's more upkeep for an inferior products.

I used to work at a hydroponics store and the only people who wanted aqua set ups were people who saw about it and thought "NEAT!" and self suffient prepper wannabes with too much spare time. Growing cabbage and tilapia at the same time for food.

In short OP, dish out the 300-400 bucks for a premade 1 or 2 plant set up and realize how dumb it is, or just stop trying to find novel shortcuts and just start reading up on micro/macro nutes and growth cycles like everyone else.

Aquaponics is great on large scale. But, just a PITA on a small one. Basically, you have to learn to keep an aquarium AND grow plants hydroponically. Then you have to wait for the fish to get big enough to eat. Lot of work for a couple of fillets ever year or so!

Plus, the PH issues....hydro weed loves acidic water. You'd have to have fish that also like the PH the same.

Yes, it could. The main thing is, you have to think of an aquaponics system like an actual farm. What that means is that you won't be harvesting the protein nearly as much as the veggies. And you will need to keep a tight balance on the nutes the fish produce for the veggies. Unless you have multiple setups with multiple "ages" for the fish and veggies, you are talking about a system where vegetables come out of it every few months (I guess you could go 3-4 weeks if you grow greens...) and fish comes out every year or two. It is a lot of work for little return. Economies of scale really factor into this shit.

My second grow, using Roleadro LED 46×3w and PH 6 Dutch soil.

My tap water is ~7.2, so I tried to use pH down on it (measured with pH test strips) and it seems that it was too much and the plant stopped getting N from the soil.

For the last 10 days I'm using just the tap water (boiled) and vegetative nutrient mix with N. I also moved the lamp higher from ~30cm to ~60cm.

I cut about 6 fully yellow bottom leaves but the upper ones are still getting yellow parts. Will it stop by itself or I should try some other measures?

I think I fucked up guys.
I have a plant I was pinching and bending over and I slipped and accidentally snapped the main stem. It didn't fully break but was snapped into a right-angle bend, so I've just left it supported up but it's bent the wrong way. I'm scared if I bend it the direction i want the stem is just going to completely snap off.. Can this plant even recover? It was growing nicely too..
