Ive been wanting to go dig some holes out in the countryside for a few years.. Anyone will do, but I've asked every warm body I thought might bite and nothing. A few family members are even secretly growing my seedingls I've offered without me? Worse I've been ripped off more than once. Sometimes with kin. I have even advertised painstakingly babysat clone gems and proposed plans etc...

Is it even doable solo? Noticing all the cold shoulders takes the wind out of my sails and disheartens.

Do any of you grow abroad? EVERYBODYS planting but me. I feel.. Unattractive as a worker.

I am having trouble with heat management, the exhaust system can not manage to pull out all the hot air from the lights, it was fine during veg, but too much for flowering.
I am using various bulbs ranging from 5 to 15 watts, currently there is about 160-180
watts of LED lights for 0.36m2 (~4 sq ft).
What would be the minimum amount of light that I should keep? I was thinking of droping to about 120

Post your zone, garden pics, and what you're growing. We didn't have our last frost until the end of May in my zone 5b area of Colorado, so I got a late start. I'm growing sweet corn, red kuri squash, yellow watermelon, scarlet runner beans, malabar spinach, okra, 4 kinds of peppers, 4 kinds of tomatoes, rosemary, parsley, thai basil, oregano, sweet basil, english thyme, and sage in this garden.

So far this summer I've harvested chives, thyme, rosemary, morning glory, oregano, basil, mint, parsley, tomatoes, peas, lettuce and nasturtiums out of my garden as far as edible stuff outside the cannabis family goes. Its kind of a tight space so I don't get to grow everything I want to. I don't have any pictures of it and its dark out right now, so heres this humorously shaped parsnip instead.

Would it be awkward to walk up to someone giving carriage tours of the city and be like "how much for a bag of your horse's shit".
Like obviously I'm not asking mounted police I'm not that stupid but would it be a bad idea to ask a cabbie for some poo? I wouldn't be like "I'M TOO CHEAP TO ORDER FERTILIZER" obviously.

I know a lot of you are probably growing weed or shrooms but I'm trying to start a garden

I just posted on /b/ (and might post there some more about it but I don't want to shit up the boards with it, so I'm try stay here)

I just got Cayenne and Mexibelles. Pretty young

I got bannana peppers and bell peppers about to reach maturity/fruiting

I just ordered some ghost pepper seeds off the interwebs.

Considering growing my own Kratom tree.

Partner wants to start growing snap peas and squash.

Also what does cayenne go into besides enchilada sauce? They're really bitter.

Recommendations or ideas welcome. You pick it, I might just plant it. Looking for peppers of all kinds or whatever you think of. No watermelon or pumpkin.

If the thread lives long enough I will post updates

The anon on the other board said there was a general or something here. I don't see it on the first page.

Yeah I bought this mexibelle and cayenne plants Sunday and they have almost doubled in size since then. They're gettin swole but I don't think old enough to produce fruit yet.

The reaper plants are suppose to be 5 inches tall but I don't know what that really means. Google says it takes roughly 3 months or 90 days from seed. The mexibelle and Cayenne are estimated at about 60-80'sh days so about 2 months, so I think they'll all mature and fruit by July.

Google says
>15-20 per plant in a season in their first year

So between 3 plants low balling it will be about 45 peppers.

Cayenne plants seem to have a much larger yield so they might end up being the bulk of my project.

I need canning explained to me like a retard that's never seen a mason jar before but also without watching all these shit trendy youtube videos. It looks like I just put the shit in and add vinegar then boil it

What are some cool plants I can just sow in my backyard to spice it up? I don't need to mow the backyard because it's fenced in and the fence is pretty high. These should be plants that just grow on their own for a long time without watering. I live in North Carolina, in the triangle, so the weather is warm but we get snow. The previous owner already planted a cactus and azaleas, but other than that I'm open to anything.

Also fuck normies for making me mow my lawn. People get robbed in my neighborhood on the reg and these fuckers have the audacity to tell me I'm violating the law by not cutting some stupid plant?! Fuck the government!

Wild Garlic, Berry bushes like blueberry, cranberry, raspberry, elderberrys, frost resistant mini kiwis also ground cover like Wild/Wood strawberrys, Dill, Mints, Oregano bushes, Lavender, 'Brunnera macrophylla ', Chia, Catnip, deadnettle, Chives.
Also consider the native plants.

Get rid of your grass by covering it with hay over autuum+winter until spring.
Pour gravel, mulch, sand where you want to walk.
I know this answer comes a bit late, but I hope you read this and start your bushes in pots before next year. You can buy the fruits for cheap soon

I've successfully grown from clones a few times, now trying my hand at seeds but I am yet to have any success. I've so far tried paper towel, jiffy pellets, and a glass of water. No luck - though the jiffy cubes ones were old and possibly crappy seeds from a mate, and the paper towel did dry out significantly at one point. The glass of warm water produced no taproot.

Given the cost of seeds and that its hard for me to find them anyway where i am, i'm hesitant about what to try next. From what I read this is quite an easy process!

Whats your foolproof method for germination?

I'm going to try the jiffy pellets again this time with a better seed (pic related), and also the humidity dome and a heat map as its a little bit cold where i am at the moment.

I was definitely over thinking it.

I followed >>147244 , and i have a few healthy seedlings that have new growth appearing. Those few days of germination were a lot warmer than usual for this time of year so I think the extra heat helped.

Today I was like 'im going to try to grow onions'

Today was also the day I spent more time on coding the irrigation system controls without much thought into how I was going to get the water there..
And settled on doing it first thing in the morning at 4:30 like a good farmer
Because I'd be balls deep soldering some other contraption.

Anyway happy 4/20 you blooming onion

Once you've got 4 nodes. 3 or 4 weeks from sprout is actually the best time to top. You want a good amount of veg time for it to bounce back from the injury.

This is bad news,isn't it? Last year i had seeds in the buds from two plants because i waited too long with harvesting.
This season some of the plants from these seeds look like this. Aren't they supposed to be female or hermi? Some of them look like full on male though like in the picture.
Anyway ; i should just get rid of them,right?

I figured out that much. "Issue" is : won't they become starved of nutrients especially the females when they are so close together(ranging from 1cm to 5cm,etc). Since males are more stronger they would repress the females. There are already ones with big leaves and look vigorous.
Also i'm not even sure what timeline i should look at for flowering nor their possible height as the original plants were autoflower which produced some seeds(not much). Then these seeds have been planted last year two ones became completely hermi the rest was male and they grew quite tall around 1.8m and now i have seedlings from these 2. So they would be 2nd generation as far as i understand how this works.
Thus i don't know if they are autoflower still but with a longer flowering period or became photoperiodic completely.
So that's my only option here? Wait for them to show their sex? And if they show their sex but several females are too close together,do i replant them further away from each other? I fear by the time they show their sex they would be fighting for light and nutrients.

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.

Are there any good hardware store soils for marijuana planting? Will any organic miracle gro do fine?
Can someone give me a rundown of the nitrogen problem with extended release fertilizers?

What I'm really asking: If I use miracle gro and use nutes/water to control the pH and moisture, will my plants still grow up big, healthy, and delicious?
I'll be at the store later to look for better growing mediums but I doubt they have them available.

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 .

Well you want several things in medium. If indoors you may want to have good drainage. Layered soil is an approach for planters or buckets. Little gravel on bottom for no root rot at the container. A midrange or better tar-black. Soil. Pay about 5bux a bag or you do risk seeing deficiencies. Yea right out of the bag some cheap shit is dry in some nutrition. Anyway grab a bag of Perlite for drainage as well and mix in about a 4 to 1 into your mix.

For outdoors instead you want a good disposable cup or planter with a quality soil brand. Yea miracle grow will do but its a salt-based fert so.. It kills microbes. go grab some dirt from your lawn and contaminate the soil. Like leavening bread. Once your established, youll make preperations outdoors. My opinion is extra. Bagsoil should be shoveled in as you plant. Consider plant spikes if you cant get there often.
