so i'm moving to DC in about two months, where weed is kinda sorta legal. I'm gonna grow my own strictly in compliance with municipal regulations, of course but I don't know where to begin beyond dirt, seeds, light, and water. it's gonna have to be an indoor grow, but like.. can anybody point me towards some resources on cultivation?

Currently have a Sylvania SHP-T 400W GROXPRESS which works great from seedling to harvest but at the lower parts of the plant the buds remain rather small because of insufficient light. Thus i would like to supplement it with LED lights on the sides which will be placed around 10-15cm away from the plants. There isn't a lot of room.
I have looked around for LED lights that are around 50-100cm long at least but can't really find anything that fits. There are LED bars but they are not full spectrum.
Though i found one that's around 31 x 12 cm and rated 25W which might work.
Since they'll be placed so close i think i'll need a low wattage version so they won't light burn the plants.
Anyone has any suggestion where to find such thing? Also if anyone has an idea how to generate more light from the sides feel free to share.
Note:i'm not very familiar with LED lights.

A good 400W HPS has about 1.8 μmol s-1 per Watt the current state of the art when it comes to LEDs about 2.6 μmol s-1 per Watt.
That is about 70% the power requirement based on the number of photons in the 400 to 700nm range of light.
The LEDs have a better utilization of the spectrum so it might be closer to 60%

Based on that 240W of high end LED is probably equivalent to a 400W HPS.
Lights like the Gavita from above have another thing going for them:
They illuminate the canopy in a completely uniform way so the buds at the edges /corners of the tent will yield about the same as the ones in the center.
This can give you a yield gain a similar magnitude.

Keep in mind that this is only valid if you are using high bin LEDs from a brand manufacturer like Samsung, Osram and Cree.
Cheap LED strips from China are realistically worse than a HPS in terms of PAR per watt efficiency.

Since most of this boards threads are short and uninteresting "whats wrong with my weed?" /threads, I'd like to start one where we just post about setup, development and stages of our cannabis grows.
I personally have never grown weed before (and smoked it only once lol), so out of curiosity I planted a seed of textile/food hemp from a seed packet I got at a supermarket. I'll use it as a "test run" of trimming and training methods before I order expensive "mariujana" seeds. And since hemp supposedly gets up to 4m tall, I'll have to trim it anyway. Fingers crossed that it's a girl. Pic related is my plant a few days after germination.

Good news everyone! I spotted my first pistils sprouting up yesterday. Here's a shot where you can see my setup. It's just a couple of water coolers with some air stones in them. The middle light is some no name unit from china I got for $50 on ebay. The other two are mars hydro 300's. I'm using two reptile UVB bulbs on either side of the middle light and the far red flower initiator puck is attached to the middle light. The flower initiator puck seems to have worked quite well, only 10 days of 13/11 and it's showing pistils already.

Update. They've almost tripled in size since I switched the lights two and a half weeks ago. I've had to raise the lights like 2 inches every day. The gorilla quake has been building buds like no one's business but the flo x stardawg has only put out a few pistils. I did have the far red light more over to the left for a little while before I moved it to the center so maybe that's why. I hope they stop growing soon, I can only raise the lights another few inches.

Last year I had a plant hermie on me and grow a couple pollen sacs, some of which hit another plant. I was going to throw it but I figured I'd try something out, so I carefully removed every pistil that had browned early with tweezers, removed the hermie and hoped the other plant finished as normal, which it did.

Last month a DJ short blueberry threw out about 3 bananas, pollinating a cheese plant and itself. I did the brown pistil removal for the cheese which had definitely been hit, and the cheese is absolutely fine, recently finished nice and fat with no signs it was ever pollinated.

Is this legit or am I being retarded, TLDR second time I've just removed pollinated pistils with tweezers and had the plant finish normally instead of growing all small and fucked like a pollinated plant.

The cheese was at about 4 weeks when I started seeing brown hairs, way too early for it to have been turning that colour naturally.

Well hello there friends. Its me again and i'm back with another rooftop growout.
This years players are:

Ripper seeds: Old School, Zombie Kush and Black Mountain
Dinafem: Blue Cheese
Cinderalla 99 from a breeder who's name I can't remember. But apparently the same one as my grow from 2017 - Hyped for these the most, to say the least.
Sunset Sherbert S1 from phenofinders.
I was given to these from a grower freind of mine after trying some of theirs I had to give them a grow.
Bradley Danks - Tester seeds: Dosi-Snitzel fem, Jager Punch fem and Strawberry Snitzel fem - All are tester seeds from a new breeder based in oregon. Exited for these also.

Started germ for them all back at the end of March, as the weather was on the turn for the good.
Had a few troubles since then, mostly due to my dogs being really into chomping down on them hard core and then vomiting it all back up again.
This happened around three times, a few plants being killed and some going beyond the point of saving.
Eventually sorted my life out, got some protective mesh to deter my dogs and the girls have been on the mend.

I took cuttings from all of the ripper seeds, the blue widow, Sunset sherbert and the BDanks jagerpunch. Some for friends and the rest for my mountain grow i'm also doing.

All have been doing really well after the dog munching had stopped and were doing well before, also. The C99 was showing some signs of neut def and was yellowing but now seems to be returning back to a darker shade of green. I think the multiple dog chomps she recieved also didn't help much, but she is now on the up and up.

I used to use a product called "bitter apple" to spray on stuff I didn't want my ferrets to chew on. I never used it on plants though, so not sure what would happen in that respect.
Great lineup of strains, Blue Cheese and it's variants have been a great flavor combo every time I've smoked it.

Afternoon all.
Just a quick picture update. Not much to report other than growth.

Jager punch seems to be leading the pack followed closely by the other bradley danks seeds. Zombie kush lagging behind a bit, but I put this down to me taking cuttings and the dog munching. Its taking an interesting shape though, because of the chomping its stem is really short and looking like a slingshot.

Seemed to have overfed the Strawb Snitzel a bit, leaving her with a few neut burns. Starting to give her a light flush now to try stabalize.

Gave them their first bout of LST and topping last Thursday before I left and because of that had to rebuild the cage around them.
All are loving the LST though and they're starting to take the shape I want.

Safe ravers. Cheers for stopping in.

stretching is a sign the plant is seeking more light. Could be a general lack in light intensity, but in you're case I think it's the shadow cast by the rim of the pot. Fill the container up some more and you should be fine.

Your soil also looks a bit wet, it's best to err on the dry side since Cannabis dislikes wet feet.

Thanks for posting OP. I've never seen such terrible genetics in a plant. I suppose this is one that I could actually believe is a real landrace from Thailand because it looks like it hasn't been bred to have desirable growing characteristics. Modern strains are so amazing that like a single top is enough to get a flat canopy of densely stacked nodes with fat colas. Try buying seeds online from a reputable breeder and you'll be amazed.

I'm growing at home, my homie has the plant for a while and he brought it indoors at night time and it cause it to flower. It's about 3' feet tall now, branchy. I took her home and have been giving her light for 24 hrs a day. Should I just let it bud up or do I keep flooding it with light to have it keep growing? She currently under 24hrs of light, do I stay at that or just go to 12?

So after my last thread, I decided I probably want to go for a sealed room model and supplement CO2. Seems like a much more reliable way of keeping the room at a specific temperature vs relying primarily on exhaust and intake.

My next challenge is, because I'm a perfectionist, I don't want to take the usual approach of "air conditioner or heater, on or off". I want temperatures to vary every day in the light vs dark period, but I want to keep those temperatures relatively consistent all year. In SoCal, where the coldest days may be high 30s and warmest may be 110.

Easy enough, I'm either going to hook up both an air conditioner and heater to a smart thermostat with a scheduling feature, or just the heater and use a Ceilo Breez to control the air conditioner (basically turns any air conditioner into a smart air conditioner which seems cheaper and more reliable than buying a smart AC).

Also going to have a humidifier (unlikely to be used but maybe on the hottest days), dehumidifier, some kind of CO2 generator (recommendations?), Hurricane figure-8 capable fans, and maybe some kind of vent to cycle the air once per day just so it doesn't get too stale with particulates/dust.

>Here's the actual question

I used polyurethane spray foam insulation which was expensive as shit and apparently effective as shit. For that reason, in addition to creating a larger hole for insects to get through vs a standard ventilation sized hole with fitted parts to create a seal (or something close), I'm hesitant to use a window style air conditioner. A mini split heat pump system is too expensive from what I saw. So I'm leaning towards using a portable air conditioner, but mostly wondering if you guys think the benefits of a portable (less risk of contamination, smaller hole in the insulation) would outweigh the benefits of a window unit (more effective cooling).

It's a 8x12x8 space (plus peaked roof), no windows, one door which will be sealed with excessive weather stripping and such

>Most importantly, with the support of latest ewelink app, you can create chains of simple conditional statements(Smart Scene). This means you can use them with temperature and humidity sensors (Si7021, AM2301, DS18B20, DHT11) to collect temperature and humidity data, while these data can be used to trigger ON/OFF other smart devices(Sonoff, Sonoff RF, Sonoff SV, Slampher, smart socket, etc.) under your account. This device is perfect to work with electric fan, air conditioner, humidifier.

I guess it is possible to use the temperature/humidity data on other sonoffs like the 4ch.

Disclosure: my background is entirely in biology/chem and I have no working knowledge of electronics beyond what I've learned while building this grow room

With that said, my thought was: use one TH10/16 per device, so one controlling the humidifier, one controlling the dehumidifier, one controlling the AC, and one controlling the heater. That's assuming I can set a schedule like I mentioned earlier, that is, something like 65 degrees for half the day and 80 degrees for the other half of the day.

However, if they only support a single temperature and the "scheduling" is just a matter of when it turns on or off, that's when it gets trickier. I would need two controllers for each device, and I'm not sure how I'd set that up from an electronic perspective. My dad, who is a former electrician, is helping me with building this and he thinks it's possible and safe to rig up two in this way but he tends to be overly optimistic. I downloaded the eWeLink app but like all these fuckin smart appliances apps, they don't let you preview the functionality in any way, you need a device to pair it with to access anything meaningful in the app as far as I could tell.

With that added context, what do you think is the best way to handle setup? Price isn't really an issue as long as it works, these are pretty cheap but multiple controllers and sensors will add up.

Also seriously appreciate your help here, it's the best potential solution I've found so far

Looked into it more and based on the sales page and a 2 year old Youtube video, it does indeed look like I'd need 2 controllers per device

which is fine because theyre even cheaper than I thought

They could stand some extra fertilizer. Next time I would also fill the container up a little more.

First off no, i'm not looking to grow my own mushrooms. This is about hunting wild mushrooms. I just got back from my first hunt ever, I had chosen boletes since they are relatively safe with no deadly lookalikes. I've learned that to verify boletes you just have to check that the pores aren't bright yellow or red, and that when sliced open it doesn't bruise blue. Do that and you're good. Gonna fry them up in a little bit, nervous but I shouldn't be. Anyway, I'm going to need some help learning about and identifying mushrooms in the coming months, since mushroom season is upon me now. My main goals are to get lots of boletes, puff balls (I know the identification rules for those too), and possibly chantrelles if I can find any (I know to beware of false cantrelles, these seem to be the most difficult to identify on my list, but still good for beginners). I found what I suspect are young honey mushrooms also, and they're the main reason I made this thread. I'm going to be observing them over the next days or weeks to see how they develop and I may be able to tell if they're honey mushrooms by then. Still, if I'm not absolutely certain beyond a shadow of a doubt I will not eat honey mushrooms. They have a deadly lookalike, the galerina. But from pictures it seems that the galerina has a slimy cap, while the honey mushroom has a dry, slightly hairy cap.

just dont take anything you arent 100% sure, and ask a few buddies as well, sometimes you may see it one way and they can point something out that you dont see

Finally, a mushroom thread! I've grown Cubensis but I love wild mushrooms. There's so much cool stuff out there if you know where to look. OP if you don't already do so make sure you take spore prints from your harvests, to be safe. Also do you know of or use any mycology books that you could recommend? I'm looking to get well-versed in it so that I can identify wild shrooms. I think taking spore prints in itself is a fun activity, and growing them through cake inoculation is equally entertaining. In fact, after you take the spore prints if you like the result you can self-propagate and have a multitude of the wild ones in your home. Growing mushrooms is quite easy in my experience, provided your equipment is sterilized and you follow safe practices. Yeah Shroomery is a great resource as well, but I'm sure you've heard of it. Anyway I just wanted to pitch in my vote for a mushroom thread, please keep it coming I'm enjoying it!
