Artifical light vs sunlight

Hello. This might be a weird or outright idiotic question. How much difference is there between: artifical light with lower intensity (compared to sunlight) but longer duration AND sunlight but with less duration.
For example 400W HPS lamp that would be on for 18hours a day. Compared to sunlight which would be "on" for about 12 hours a day.
Basically what i'm asking is: should i bother with outside growing if i can provide the proper temperature outside but with less uptime of light as in early-late spring or should i wait till late spring early summer to start?
As i have the choice to either grow in a box or grow outside in a greenhouse but i'm afraid the less duration of light wouldn't be sufficient even if it's more intense for AUTOFLOWERing plants.
Is there a study of some sort or a growers journal regarding this?

First at the levels we usually grow cannabis the amount of usable light indoors is absolutely equivalent to sunlight.
The noon sun at the equator is about 1000W per sqm, with an average over the day of 500W at the most.
The rule of thumb of 400W per sqm for indoor lightning provides the plants with about the same amount of PAR (photosynthetic active radiation) because a higher percentage of light is in the 400-700nm region spectral region that plant can utilize.

Regarding your question in a greenhouse that depends. A lower amount of light is absolutely fine for plants that are in the growth phase or early flowering (stretching) phase. If you plan accordingly you can time it so that late flowering happens during the summer for autoflowering plants.
Regular strains however need the 10-12h of darkness which won't happen in the northern hemisphere until late august.

Thanks. Managed to find some weather stations nearby and checked their measurements for radiation in a day and based on that it's too early for starting outside. Will have to wait till early/mid April or May.

Wich cactus is better in regards to working with and mescaline content? Or does it matter?

Should I just go with the first patch I find growing? (I live in a desert climate)

Also how do I tell wich cactus r the good ones?

Help a home chemist out?

Never heard of peruvian torch but I doubt it grows as quick or is as cheap to buy as san pedro. San pedro is great for extractions, but if you just want to eat the cactus itself you're gonna want peyote so you don't have to eat a ton.

"San Pedro" is Trichocereus Pachanoi. Peruvian torch is Trichocereus Peruvianus. There are two of the "big three" columnars the other being Bolivian torch (Trichocereus Bridgesii)

The "quick growing" T. Pach aka PC or PachaNOT is shit for extractions and has very low mescaline content. See: https://troutsnotes.com/pachanot/ Without knowing what you are looking for you can be assured that most San Pedros for sale are PC.

Typical Bridgesii, Pach, and Peruvianus cultivars all grow at about the same rate and have similar mescaline content with Peruvianus being higher on average. However this number varies greatly due to the huge amount of variables that have an impact on the mescaline(and other active alkaloid) production.

Due to the price, slow growth speeds, lack of availability, protected status, legality, conservation, etc it doesn't make sense to choose L. Williamsii over a columnar if you are just brewing a batch. With the right columnars you can come pretty close to the mesc content of L. Williamsii as well.

OP this is a very difficult question and depends on a ton of factors. Desert climate doesn't come close to providing enough info to tell you which would be better. Are you able to easily ID T. Peru V. T. Pach V. PC? In the most general sense look for the oldest stand you can find and take old growth not new. If you happen upon some with mutant characteristics like crisate or monstrosus go for one of those. Generally the slower growing the higher the mesc content but again its variable.

They are a small round yellow fruit growing on a palm like plant but they are round and but elongated. Maybe a different kind or something?

So, I'm over 6 weeks into flowering, I've already harvested five of my plants, all beautiful, smoke great, good buzz, all chopped pretty much on time with what I expected. I have one plant though, that still only looks like it's three weeks along. A lot of pistils, all stark white, looks kinda like pic related. I'm growing in a cabinet, all the plants under the same light, literally inches from each other, all on the same exact schedule. I'm growing from bagseed, so I know there can be differences in the plants, but goddamn, it should be relatively on the same schedule.

i have a seed line i grow where the females all tend to keep on adding new pistils and not doing too much else for about the first 8 weeks and then they all start filling out and its done at 11-12 weeks

I have 2 of these growing.
I think they started to flower around the first week of December. They should be ready now right? It's been 8 weeks if it flowered mid-December.
What do y'all think?

So I've never ever planted canna. before, and it's kinda hard to sort through all the different variants of how to go about it.
I'm limited to growing 1-3 plants at most, I'll have to use a growbox.
What would be the currently most power efficient way to grow under these limations with modern tooling and lights?
I seem to remember using alu-foil inside the box to reflext as much light as possible, to make it less wasteful.

Are CFL still a thing? Or is some kind of LEDs where it's at nowadays?

My timer busted and I only noticed after plants got 2 and a half hours extra light during flower, one is beginning of week 5 the other is almost at week 3.

I gave them 12 hours of dark once I noticed but the problem here is I kinda need them to stay on 7am-7pm, but this fuck up means they'd be on 10.30-10.30pm if I continued like this, would I be able to shut the lights off at 7pm, give them a short day and just move them back to 7-7 or should I stay on 10.30-10.30?

Sooo... what if someone wants to start growing opium flower? Acquiring the seeds is legal to my knowledge, growing perhaps, but harvesting is obviously not? How long does it take for it to grow? Do you get new seeds from it which you can plant or do they need to be 'activated' or something? Will it smell? (Pardon my lack of understanding of basic biological/botanical terms and science.) How much of codeine could you produce from a single plant for personal use for back pain relief? How difficult and dangerous is the harvesting proces? How likely would grow succeed without special equipment; window board, sunlight, tap water and spoiled fruits/veggies? Researching for a novel I'm writing, of course.

from the local picking spot of subaeruginosa variety, soil samples were taken from various patches of the magic woods, be it summer, we could see no visible mushroom activity and picked spots at random.. (happened to be in the area)
questions are:
if put in a garden pot in shady area at home and watered, could i get lucky and grow some backyard shrooms?
is there a way to use these soil samples to do an indoor grow with a tub

The 7gal fabric pot is holding a ManBearAlienPig seed....somewhere. I was putting the seed in the soil last when it fell outta my hand into the soil in a random spot. I tried looking for it to no avail. Should I keep watering it and wait for it to sprout or should I take the L and pop another seed.

The red cup is holding a 3Bears OG crossed with Heisenberg Special, Tooth Decay and Strawberry Nuggets.

Both of these are auto flowers

Because that's how I've always done it. Transplanting autos is no bueno. Regular seeds don't get shocked when transplanted but autos do. Although, I have one auto in a solo cup as you can see. For me, my results have always been better when I start I'm the finishing pot. The site where I go these autos from say you should start them in the finishing pot to avoid shocking the plant.

I just harvested my pieface og 40grams.

We start plants in smaller containers when they're being stored in an outdoor nursery, because it prevents growth of weeds on the seedling. In a big pot there's too much empty space around the seed where weeds can grow. It looks like OP's growing indoors, so it's a lot less likely that weeds will pop up in his pot.

Do the autos go into shock, even if you transplant into fertilizer and water with cold water immediately afterwards?
Homegrownmids - Tue, 21 Jan 2020 10:02:26 EST 0wQesvHA No.147154 Reply
I bring them indoors and supplement with indoor light. I give them all the sunlight available, not a nursery, they just sit on top of my patio roof for Max sun.

This is my first time growing an autoflower. I've only read transplanting shocks the autos but I haven't read too much into it, I'm just winging it honestly. I've grown regular seeds before but I'm much more comfortable with clones. I've grown regular seeds in much bigger pots and also even dixie cup shot glasses. I'm assuming autos are much more sensitive. From people who grow autos -"it takes more skill to grow an auto than a reg" from people who grow regs - "autos are for people who can't grow" it's a trip. I'm not an expert grower but I know what works for me, and so far what works for me doesn't work for an auto.

NPK is listed on media label, telling you the ratio of Nitrogen to Phosphorous to Potassium. 3-1-1 is good start for seedlings. Make sure to do your math with fertilizers in order to keep your nitrogen up until flowers start forming, then you can gradually amend your media to a 1-3-2 as P and K are used in flower production. Keep in mind that if you're unfamiliar with this cultivar, then you will have to feel out the best ratios feeding habits by trial and error.

pH ought to be between 5.8 and 6.5 .
