Small pot better then a large one ? by Simon Sopperwater - Fri, 07 Oct 2016 21:38:17 EST ID:LFPh87c8 No.143537 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I planted in a fairly deep and narrow pot 15cm and got a nice root punching out within a weeks time went on and i replanted in a even bigger, now all holes in the bottom (a lot) is filled with roots, BUT when i poke around in the topsoil 1 finger down i can feel no roots.

I wonder if i started in a cup i would have gotten a better rootball ?

You can also train your roots to avoid root circling and entanglement by painting the inside of your containers with copper sulfate or copper carbonate like the nurseries do, and it acts as a repellent for the rootball, keeping it away from the sides and forcing it in a downward direction. If anyone here has a line on either one of those chemicals, I have been wanting to use them but i can't find a place that sells it pure for a fair price unless you want to buy a 55 gallon drum or some shit, let me know if you know something that I may be missing.

You could mist the edges of your pot with water and roll the powder around till its all covered. It will dissolve a little bit but its fine.

in retrospective i should have trimmed these off for bigger top buds right ?

Yes and no.
Hard to say for sure without a proper journal to look at.

Less shitty low-tier branches = More energy towards the tops.
Less branches = Less bud.

In my experience all the trimming and cutting should be done before entering the flower cycle.
And at that point, it's hard to predict the end-game structure of the plant, so therefore it's kind of hard to know which one's are worth keeping and cutting.

Next time just top/fim/scrop the plant and keep all the tops on the same level, that way you get as many big top buds as you want.
Maybe invest your time in reading the actual grow techniques, mediums and nutrients... and master them before worrying about cutting off parts of the plant.

This plant got hit hard by cal mag deficiency at the end of veg
ph runoff was allover the place
So i switched to bio nutes and the plant got happy again but probably lost a week progress and a bunch of fan leaves

No, "trimming" is nonsense unless:
The parts of the plant you remove is damaged / half dead from nutrient deficiency or something else.
Your growing space is so crowded that you would risk mold.
During the veg cycle to enforce a more bushy growth pattern.
If you are doing scrog as a precaution so that leaves receiving zero light will die anyway.

This plant is so spindly that it hasn't even grown to a state that leaves compete with each other.

The notion that lower branches steal "energy" from the plant is pure bro-science and has no basis to make sense because the limiting factors are light and co2 uptake. Second the plant doesn't "route" resources from the soil to the top, if you remove parts of the upper plant you made the corresponding roots superfluous which in term die off.
And if you are limited by rood oxygen, fertilizer or water uptake you are doing something seriously wrong.
Fix that before playing surgery on your plants.

You should have a uniform process of trimming that you can get by studying the strain that you have for a few grow cycles and deciding for yourself what the best course should be. Look at things like overall height, the power of your lights especially near the bottom branches, if the plant wants to grow a big single cola on the main branch or if it wants several main branches with smaller nuggets on the end of each, etc.

hey guys, [email protected] i planted this seed some time ago. it was growing okay but a couple days back i saw it had a little bug walking around and now it has these brown/dark orange things at the middle.

i noticed the "new stem" which was always hairy and white has turned kinda dark too, its still white on the borders and the old ones are green though. the leaves keep growing but im kinda concerned. is it rootrot or something else?, can it be saved?.

its an autoflowering and i leave it outside in a pot (kinda spring on my country)

Don't use seeds to sustain your grow, learn how to clone cuttings. With seeds you get random results, with cuttings you get an exact clone of the plant with the same features, and you'll also cut down growing time by rooting a cutting and skipping the whole germination phase.

small seed runs are no problem. you'll want to selectively impregnate a branch of one of your plants which is fairly easy to do. you just chop the males before their balls pop and drop pollen everywhere. dry them out and collect the pollen then lightly apply it to the part of the plant you want seeded.

as for selecting a strain(s) to breed thats all up to you. look for characteristics you want. Traits like indica or sativa, terpene content, etc and go from there.

I've never seen any strain being marketed as a good seed producer and i don't think this is a trait that someone would even need to breed out in the plants. evolution and everything, the plants that were shit at producing seeds probably died off long before man started growing and breeding cannabis.

I really want to grow dope, exotic plants, but I live in Scandinavia where the summers are hot af but short as shit. I also live in an apartment and do not have access to a green house. Is there any cool shit you can do with botany (besides growing plants and marvelling at them full of awe)?

You could work for a place like Monsanto if you wanted to make it your career. If you live in an apartment, search for a community gardening collective or something where they took a patch of land and everyone takes care of it, as you learn about it, make friends and connections, there's always someone that needs something done and could use help with it.

I forgot to mention, if you wanted to learn without having to pay for college, like an internship that gives you free room and board in exchange for working and learning how to farm there's


It's for people that want to learn how to farm sustainably and are willing to pick up and travel to where they're going to live, if my health was better and I had the means to do it, I would do that for the rest of my life.

Hey there crops, not a first time grower but I don't have a lot of room to work with, so I just got done building a box 3x2.5x4 feer with 15 cfl fixtures (which can easily be raised/lowered) using 345w for veg and 630w for flowering. Seeds are in the mail, but I just wanted to give you guys a peek.
I'll probably be growing 1 autoflowering plant at a time, with LST and the amount of wattage the plant is getting I hope to get some good yields, enough to fulfill most of my personal use requirements.

Will be updating soon!

CFL's are so easy to hot swap, you can even do it without shutting them off, take a few 8500k's out and replace them with 2600k's until you get the redder hue that you want.


Not with 100W above it by about a half foot and the other 200W on the sides encouraging lateral growth and hitting the low branches better. That's the only thing I would've changed.

I used CFLs when I started growing and it was way more trouble than it was worth, having to constantly adjust the lights and prune the plants and tie them down to get them to grow in the right shape. They save money on your electric bill and the initial investment is cheaper, but eventually you're going to get sick of the hassle and switch to HPS and never look back.

I've used HPS a bunch of times. Actually for the last 5 years consecutively. This year due to some family issues I'm not staying at my house for the foreseeable future (Dad has cancer, I will need to take care of him) so I only have a small space to grow in, so I decided to try out CFL's rather than buy an LED that cost twice as much as my little setup

Also, we have a seedling. Pic related.

I have a 60x60x180 tent up in a room where the humidity gets super high. Already lost most of one plant to mold, looking to sort it out before I try again.

Main problem is I sleep in the same room, and don't really fancy having the extractor fan going all night as it's impossible to sleep with it on.

Few questions, where would the best place to put a dehumidifier, in the tent or just in the same room? Also would putting the dehumidifier inside the grow tent at night allow me to sleep with the extractor fan off?

I had 2 plants in there, one was ruined by mold but the other was completely fine.

Basically looking for a way to control humidity without having to sleep with the noisy extractor fans going. The fans inside to blow air over the plants can stay on but the extractor is way too noisy to sleep with on.

You don't have to put it into the tent because the tent is breathing the room's air. If you're cloning you want 90% humidity, for veg around 60-70% and for bloom under 35%.

I recently transplanted a pretty big clone of some blue dragon into some Ocean forest fox farm soil. Im not sure what soil i was oricginally rooted on. But ever since then i have cropped it and the healing knott has done very well. After that i did some LST to keep all 4 tops the same height. But now i jave recently noticeds that new growth and lower leaves have a very light green color, along with clawed leaves. Im afraid it is nute burn, but i have rarely had any deficiencies in any plants ive grown so i dont have the eye for it. Can you guys help a fellow grower fix this problem?

The quickest way to rule out nutrient burn is your leaf tips, if they're not brown then you probably aren't overdoing it. Yours looks like either overwatering, root rot, or micronute deficiency.
