I keep trying to get some cuttings going, and they keep failing to root. They actual don't do anything. Even die. They can hang out for three weeks stuck in a damn solo cup of soil as damp as fuck, and nothing. I even tried those Riot Rooters. Nothing. ANy ideas?

If your mother plant is healthy when you took the cuttings they should root, its only a matter of time. In both Rapid Rooter plugs and in cups of plain water, I've kept cuttings alive for weeks. No growth, but no signs of yellowing or wilting leaves etc. If left to their own devices I'm sure they would have done their thing. I was pressed for time and space though so they got tossed. The most vigorous cuttings take about a week for roots to be visible coming out of the plug. Those are the ones I've kept.

Some thoughts on your situation is that the soil you're placing the cuttings in is too damp. Or maybe there is more you can do the cutting before you place it in the soil to promote root growth? Try cutting the stem in a different procedure? Removing all but one fan leaf? Giving it a light cycle with a substantial amount of dark time? Keeping it in very humid environment?

Ok. No dome and the lights are 24/7. Humidity is 50.

Should I dome it and drop that light cycle?

Exactly! 24/0 isn't a harmful schedule, but it makes the plant more interested in photosynthesis than root growth. This is the same reasoning behind removing pretty much all big fan leaves. If the plant isn't getting sufficient light, it's response is to make more leaves to capture it. Being that it has no roots to support that growth, the cutting is now coerced into producing them. For this reason I also think that if media is kept on the dryer side it stimulates the cutting to scavenge for water and produce roots. A humidity dome would prevent evaporation of water so you wouldn't have to saturate soil as much, and it enables the plant to drink from the air so it doesn't dehydrate.

Also people scrape off some outside tissue of the stem so that roots will shoot out from there. One method suggests that slicing off nodes so that they are almost flush with the stem, works better since that area has a higher concentration of growth hormones

I'm doing a ton of reading since I can legally grow now, but pardon my noobiness. I want to start growing in the beginning of January. My plan is to leave the plants outside until it gets dark, then bring them in so they continue getting light so they won't flower early. How much light will they really need just to not flower? Do I really need to invest in a light just for after sunset? Or will setting the plants near the lamp that is lighting the room anyways be enough? I live in southern california so temperature shouldn't be an issue.

fine, how about this then Mr. Perfectionist
the light is about 12 inches from the soil now. Any closer and the light doesn't hit all of the plants. By putting the plants inside I'm really just trying to prevent flowering, minimizing stretching comes second.

Unfortunately my back patio is pretty sheltered, so they don't get much wind either. I might have to start pointing a fan at them. Eh it's too bad it takes so much electricity to grow out of season.

I take it that's your setup? I didn't bother reading what kind of bulb that is, if you even posted those stats. If it's led or fluorescent then you want that bulb as close as you can possibly put it without the plant touching the actual bulb, like 2-5 inches away.

I grew weed once because somebody hit me an my gf up saying somebody they knew who grows had to move state and had thirteen two week old plants that needed taken care of. I had mevet grown anhthing in my ljfe before but I was like, okay. Ended up getting six plants of sour diesel and bought about three hundo dollars worth of equippy. I grew all six plants using three small fluorescent lights, then one 150 watt fluorescent, and one 125 wall fluorescent. It was a crash course grow op with a lot of fuck ups, but I ended up getting about five or six ounces of high quality bud.

Growweedeasy dot com. It did it. My plants survived a four day power outage in 40 degree fahrenheit weather and came back to be rank as fuck. Pic is related.

You said your plants seem way too tall for how old they are? They're stretching to try and get closer to their light source. You need to either get a more powerful light, or move the one you have closer. Dunno, m8.

This is my weed from my first grow for reference using slightly improper technique with basically crap lights.

>Is there anything I can do about the stretching?

Get some proper lights and grow them exclusively indoors if you're that concerned.. Stretching is bad for indoor growing because it's hard to get the light close to the lower nodes. People who grow outdoors don't give a shit about stretching, because it doesn't matter if the sun is 491,040,000,000 feet away from the lower nodes, or 491,040,000,004 feet away.

CFL's from a hardware store can be bought for pretty cheap and work well as supplemental lighting. It also probably costs you less than $1/month in electricity. 4 26w bulbs would be perfect for 1-2 young plants

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.

Your only issue you'll hit with coco growing isn't just the lower PH you'll need compared to soil but coco has this weird relationship with calcium, it absorbs it and won't let the plant have as much as it needs, that's why coco formulations exist so they can pump it full of enough calcium to circumvent that.

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.

Hi guys.
I've been trying to learn more about the indoor growing and I've some question about the whole light led watts stuf.

I assumed the LED is more efficient than other types of light per watt and if I calculated it right you would need about 100 watt of led for 2-2.5 square feet.
to be specific I am thinking of a box with 45cm(17,7inch) by 55cm(21.6inch) which should be 2.6 square feet.
does this sound like enough for one plant?
cause as of right now, I think the light with that setup while using led will cost me about 20$ not counting fixtures and wires, but their cost is negligeble so I don't take it into acount.

Also is that enough space for one plant? High can be as high as 2m (more than 6'0) so I assume this is not the issue either.

So I did a really dumb thing, lets say I panicked.

Dutch prob A+B, I get why its sold separate.

I mixed in 2ml of B into the what I had left of A, I was too hasty and didnt check the bottle when I returned what I didnt need to it. The panic reaction was to mix up some A+B so I wouldnt contaminate what I had left. )I know, stupid right(.
I currently have 80ml of pre mixed A+B and obv its started crystalising and reacting instantly.

Its sat in the fridge. It is all I have left for the next 15 days and is enough to give me like 3 feeds, is it gonna last that long or should I just throw it and try and maybe start bloom nutes a week early?

>>143906
Your box is big enough for the light to be 'most' efficient BUT you need air and space for Respiration and Movement (MRS NERG) I mean the plant will grow but its gonna struggle essentially breathing its own farts so keep that in mind.

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.
