I looked last night and there are some really tiny, not that healthy looking plants under the tubes. They look like they need more light. Those tubes could be more effective, lower. And in a tighter grouping.

Growing Cookies Kush by Barney's Farm, figured I'd do a log this time.

Using just over 50L of canna terra soil, mars hydro 600w LED (~240w actual draw) and foxfarm trio nutrients.

Until recently I'd been growing 2 small plants in a smaller tent, but this time I decided I prefer one big plant. Goal is to use large pot size and longer veg time to get some huge yields.

Pic posted is 25 days from seed. Will be topping and using LST. Any advice / questions welcomed.

Topped the rest of the branches. It looks a little stressed, maybe from the topping, hopefully will perk back up soon.

Will be starting flowering soon as my supply is running now and even if I flipped now I'd have enough to last me until my next grow finishes.

Toppings take a toll. I just gave a big chop to one of my plants, and she went from drinking 1/2 gallon a day to just a few ounces. Rebounding a bit more every day. One reason I like DWC, is that I can literally see how much the plant eats. More water used = more growth. Etc etc.

Anyone else like to experiment with their plants? Like LST, air layering, vegetative propagation, etc?

This is a mother plant that I am messing with. I'm growing the lowest branches downwards. The goal will be to stake each of them to the soil, so that they will shoot out roots. Literally, no real practical purpose to this. But, interesting to experiment with. Also trying some air layering, but with that I intend to see if it cuts time off of vegetative growth vs a traditional clone.

Update -

So, I have been trying to air layer a big branch of this plant. I kept it wrapped all nice and kept it moist.

Here is a pic of how I did it...well, a series of them...

This is a section of bag wrapped around a "riot rooter," plug that I wrapped around the branch after scoring it some and applying rooting hormone.

This is what I found going on after over a month of air layering.

Not great. Just some nubby "proto-roots."

So, I took the thing down and shoved the bottom into a DWC bucket I am running for a new clone. It doesn't look happy about it, but WTF. Maybe it will root finally. Or not. IDKAF.

I have to figure out what I did wrong. I thing I should have also bagged the branch it was on. Treat it like a clone under a dome. Maybe that encourages root growth.

I have been continuing my "run branches down," and see if they root experiment. Right now the biggest problem is that lowered branches don't seem to get as much nutes as the rest of the plant. Growth is very slow on these.

I bet this is much more common in states where the cops can "cook up," some probable cause easily.

Here is the thing - If you aren't running a crazy number of lights, you could just as well be someone growing indoor tomatoes or who owns an aquarium, or any sort of high wattage appliances. Shit, we have computer power supplies that can suck down 1500W.
And that is the catch. Notice in the article he mentioned the sheriff showing for a "knock and talk." Those are sketchy as fuck. Basically, the cops gin up a reason to be at your door and just ASK to come in. Most people let them in thinking they legally have to. They do not. The cop then pokes around and anything in "plain sight," is now legal for him to grab. If he claims he smells weed inside he can rip the place apart.
Really shitty stuff. The good news is that simply having a 600-1200W grow won't cause any DEA raids. The bad news is the cops may be shitty enough to barge in to fuck with you.

MN resident and i can confirm that they do this shit and bring dogs. MN only has a standard of "articulable suspicion" to access shared but secured entry spaces in apartment buildings, which is legally meaningless. They can sniff a house door with slightly more restrictions but still no warrant. My theory is that they probably try to use flir or other means in most cases before approaching you, but ive seen it first hand at an apartment building i lived in.

FLiR is supposed to be illegal to use that way, but the cops don't care.

And the dog thing is fucked. You should see the research on police dogs. They are NOT foolproof and in fact many will sense when the cop wants into a place, and they will act like they hit drugs, so they get their reward. Then the cops can bust in and do whatever.

The FLIR E series 4-8 meters are anywhere from 500-3,000$ and I know from using one, they are unnervingly accurate for everything within 2 brick walls and 30 feet. I can zoom in with one onto a CO2 generator for instance and discern that from say, a furnace just because it will have 4-12 or more individual brass lines and fittings inside of it that are operating at ground temps instead of one. You'll see the pilot light next to it, and if you sit long enough, you can watch it kick on and off.

The only way that you can even begin to get around this is to have a house that sits at least 1000 feet off of the road, has a full deep basement, and ideally is up on the side of a mountain in relation to the street, so you can put the system facing the solid clay/rock side.

Military tech is even scarier, all of it is classified of course but sometimes you get a absent-minded general on CNN that rambles off their abilities accidentally. Remember when they caught Bin-Laden? The general they interviewed said something like, "yes we knew the target was at the location, and we were aware that he was on the 3rd floor." So, yeah they've got shit that can focus in on individual heat signatures and discern between male and female and even between individual males.

Heyheyy, welcome to my grow journal.
Pull up a chair and lets find out what we can achieve with the most basic equipment.
The seeds sprouted at 21.12, they had a hard time the first couple of weeks.
I didn't realize that running 24/0 light cycles was seriously stunting the growth.
Saw immediate improvement when the cycle was changed to 18/6.
The more I know.
The first pic is from 29.1
There wasn't much to document before this time.

I'm pretty sure that ordinary white table sugar is deprived of anything that's useful.
That's the reason it's not considered a healthy thing to consume regularly.

Sticking with the all natural option and going with locally produced honey.

Also, the point of adding molasses or honey is to feed the microbial system within the buckets.
Which in turn, help the plant to use unavailable nutrients that still are present.

Sugars, by themselves, won't be doing jack shit to these microbes.

Also gotta add that honey might not even work in the same way as molasses.
Both have their own unique set of perks.

Like I said, it is junk food to plants. Pure energy. No vitamins, etc. Molasses is just the leftover from processing sugar anyway.

Yeah I get that it's" junk" - but it's certainly not food.
Roots can't process it and it does no favors for the plant.

Molasses and honey are natural products that have minerals and other good stuff in them like potassium and antibacterials.

We gotta understand that plants make their own sugars and they do not crave for that diabeetus-shit.

Only reason I'd force sugarwater thru my culled plant, is to trick my way to some extra weight.
And I'm sure as hell not doing that shady shit.

Damn, I can't catch a break.

Found some tiny mold spots on a few nugs.
Glad I noticed when I did, cause that could've spread pretty fast.

Culled the whole thing to minimize the loss.
I know I could've just snip out the moldy parts and let her go on.
But didn't really seem worthwhile at this point.

So I guess this concludes the journal.

Things really didn't end up going as well as I hoped.
But, that's what I get for having a shitty setup and trying to get a huge yield.

I hope that this journal can help someone who's new to growing.

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.

Hey guys, I bought one of those Deep Water Culture systems that use clay pellets as a growing medium.
I have some week old plants that I grew in soil that I'll put in there, but how should I plant new seeds?

I got some rock wool cubes, can I just put the seeds in there and stick the cubes in the clay pellets, or should I start them off in soil?

Also, the seeds I planted came from some shitty Hermaphrodite weed, will they possibly grow into females or are they fucked?

Lastly, wat is the best light cycle for the veg stage? Some sites say 20 hours and others say 18.

Hey guys,

A few quick questions. I have 1.2m * 1.2m * 1.8m setup that is in a concealed area with a door for access surrounded by insulated double bricking. I purchased a carbon filter but I believe I may have been oversold. How large a filter would I need if I'm not expecting anyone to be able to smell it but still remain as safe as possible.

Secondly, should I be using an intake fan as well as an outtake fan or would general airflow from a doorway be enough?

Thirdly, I have experience with expanded clay in hydro setups with drip and feed but I've seen new aeronponics setups which seem interesting. What's the general consensus on that from you folks?

ill post a few links to give you an idea. I would just use pvc pipe and make the carbon from charcoal. Also, you dont need all those holes, just some big ones and some chicken wire. What cfm is your fan rated at? i would err on the side of caution and seal it all up with an intake fan honestly, but i dont know what your site is like.

start here for fogponics. The naming is kind of inconsistent, but im only refering to using ultrasonic piezo transducers for making the fog, not a pump system. Same as in a fog machine like you would see at a concert. I think the only reason this is not more mainsttream is that good cheap piezo elements compatible with the nutrients only hit the market lately, or maybe that people have just already invested in other gear.

I'm just off to my local hyrdo store to have a chat with them about the fogponics, it seems incredibly interesting. Thank you so much for the heads up, I was reading about mixed medium setups but I wasn't sure about it so I figured I'd ask.

As for the carbon filter itself, there's a market for that product at a much cheaper price so if I could utilize a little experience with building them and 3D printing components I need, I might be able to sell them to the store at a discounted price. Nobody in the store has any idea about fogponics from what I can gather, but we'll see.

Once I get back I'll make a 3D model of the room with the dimensions so you can see the general space in a more intuitive form then I can explain more for you as well as show some pictures of the actual physical space.

best overall explanation and demo vids are probably here. I may someday be competing with these guys, who knows.

to Be clear though, your biggest prioity is probably smell, maybe heat. You better have a good filter setup with a backup filter and a plan for excess heat, flooding, fan noise, and electrical disaster. If you are in the US, tell no one, no matter where you live. Growing is still illegal and if you step on somebodys toes, who the fuck knows what could go down in the next few years.

also, just use a 5 gallon bucket for the filters. Spend your time making a fixture to spin them around on a drill press while drilling holes out with a hole saw, if no one is already selling buckets modified like this. I dont know how 3d printing can help here given the envelope and time involved. Plus, you need surface area and drying capability man. You need something at least as large as a bucket and more importantly something to dry the air out so the carbon stays dry and does its thing. if this is a closet grow and is indoors, maybe make your filter as a piece of furniture and blow air outwards through it... make it fucking big and dry, basically. Big is quiet.

Well, after a week, and after getting some advice from here, I finally have some rooted clones of my bagseed mother - I call her Patty The Daytime Hooker.

Anywho, I transferred two clones to my DWC buckets filled with expanded clay pebbles. Under a 300W LED right now. My flowering tent has the 1000W HPS/MH system in it, and it won't be free for vegging for probably the next two to three weeks.

This is my first time using a DWC, so I want to see if these guys can make it.

UPDATE - Here are some pics of how they stand now.

This is PK1 with PK2 behind it. The growth is phenomenal now. I just had to feed both 1/2 gallon of fresh nutes each. When my soil grows were going full bore, each plant took about that in water per day. Really amazing how much they can process in 24 hours.

A big thing I have noticed is that my DWC fan leaves are looking much better than soil. Soil was fine, but the DWC leaves are bigger by far and have a deeper green to them. I am finding that what I thought was shit-hot looking good, may have been just meh.

Anyway - PK1 with PK2 behind it in the other black bucket.

Well, I am yet again an idiot. That pic is PK2. As you can see she has just caught up nicely and is really filling the space.

HERE is PK1...
She is getting so big. I may have to slow her down a bit. I have other plants that could use more time in the tent under the big light. Then again, I am loathe to have this growth rate slow down....

The way this one looks, it would make a good mother plant for future clones just by the way it's growing. Or throw it into bloom and when you go to trim and top it, use the cuttings you take off of it to get clones faster once you're into week 1-2 of bloom. You'll have to trim it anyhow to get it to yield decently, make what you cut off of it work for you, killing 2 birds, one stone, etc.

Yeah, I already have a mother, and I keep my moms in soil for ease of maintenance.

UPDATE - So, we had to get a new gas meter installed. When the guy installed it, he unplugged the extension that powers my tent.

And I didn't discover it for about 12 hours....

I was worried that the lack of a working air pump would have quickly killed my DWC grow. Nope. They seem fine. Maybe some reduced growth for the last two days...but far from a disaster. Which is good.

I've noticed a lot of changes in the tent. The temp is stabilizing to around 83F. The humidity, which was in the 30s, has now shot up to the low 90s! I couldn't quite figure out why, until I realized that I was also going through more that 1/2 gallon of nutes a day.

Plants dump water out of their leaves. The humidity has risen as the plants have grown. My plants are literally fogging the tent up with their breath! Kind of amazing to see what they can do.

UPDATE - My damn plants are exploding faster than a freshman grabbing boob for the first time.

Both plants are huge now. I need to raise my light for sure when I flower. Can't flower them for another 5 days...but they look good. Even after I accidentally tore a big lower branch off PK1 by being a clumsy oaf.

Hard to not get both plants in the frame now. They are massive. Hard to believe they were so scrawny.

So does anyone here have experience growing poppy flowers?

All I know is the seeds have to be frozen and thawed repeatedly along with direct sunlight for them to sprout from seed.

They can be pretty easy to grow. I suggest planting in the fall though. The seeds can overwinter fairly well.

Also, invest in multiple seed packets.

yeah its pretty easy. i bought 1 pack of hungarian blue like 5 years ago & they still going. plant them early in the spring, they don't need any special treatment, very easy to grow. dry a few pods for the next grow's seed.

All my shit ass worthless seeds couldn't even function on the most basic level and sprout. Pieces of fucking shit. I even let their whore bitch mother get knocked up so I'd have a fuck ton, and none of the worthless little pieces of shit will sprout. I have NEVER had this problem before. 50+ seeds I've gone through now, NONE will FUCKING sprout. Pieces of shit...I'm losing my fucking shit because plants need to be in the ground THIS MONTH and I have NONE. FUCKING bullshit. I need to get seeds, but I don't want to order from some shithead shell company that is just going to cooperate with law enforcement whenever they ask. I'm going to try and get clones from very unreliable people, so I doubt I'll be able to get them.

Ok so i've had them submerged for days now...still no sprouting...like i"ve said I've sprouted dozens of times before and have never in my life encountered this. I cracked one of the pieces of shit open, and it didn't look rotten or anything on the inside. I've been changing the water out every day to keep oxygen content high, and to keep them from getting infections. I may have to meticulously split these little cunts open myself, I don't think scoring the edge is even going to do much.

That's good that you knew when to do that, some people try to remove it before the initial lift-off and it can kill the plant if you're not gentle with it.

Fresh seeds won't germinate, they need a a few weeks in the fridge first. Also if they got hot at any point they probably won't work.

Nah man. Only for 24-36 hours. Just until they sink to the bottom (poke them after 24 hours to see if they sink) After they sink, you plant them. Most of the time they wont even sprout until you plant them. Might be ruined now though.

FUCK, well other nibbas said leave them in until they shoot out taproots...they never did...I planted them now. Fuck, even if they don't grow, at least I'm starting tomatoes and they're doing fine. Gonna have a big garden this year. Potatoes and melons and such. No more of my money for big produce. They can suck my self sufficient ass.
