What devices are recommended to look at trichomes,what magnification is the minimum/optimal to see the trichomes?
Recently seen a post in a thread here and it didn't even occur to me(beginner here) that i would need one. Yeah sure you could say i don't really need one but i want to get every info available to get the best out the plants.

If you already own a DSLR or EVIL camera you can get a cheap manual focus 55mm lens and an adapter to reverse mount it.
This way you can do super macro shots that rival 4 figure macro lenses.

circlejerk said use a loupe instead of a microscope. I've tried a microscope and the problem is it's not really good when the object is moving or your hand is moving, since getting a clear image is based on the focus distance or whatever.

Of course.
It all depends how perfectionist you are. To just get a rough idea of when to chop them a loupe is fine.
If you want to determine the clear/cloudy/amber ratio accurately buy counting them you can of course snip of a small piece of bud and examine that under whatever camera rig you've got.

I got some questions, this top nug has lost all its orange hairs, all its crystals and all its sticky. New buds have formed and have gotten bigger but this one hasn't done anything to show progress. It flowered prematurely and then created new budsites a few weeks after and those new buds are bigger and covered in crystals. Is it time to chop that top gram?

How long has it been since you first saw the first pistils (white hairs)? It will usually be 8 weeks from there minimum before it's ready. Once it's getting close to that time, the best way to tell is by checking the color of the trichomes up close with magnification. A jewlers loupe is what people usually use, but a regular magnifying glass or a pair of binoculars used backwards should also work. You want at least half of the trichomes to be either milky or amber, not clear. Make sure you look at the trichomes on the buds not the leaves.

So this is a plant that I’ve recently tried to Pham but I’m not sure if I’ve achieved the desired results. My question is which part of the plant is supposed to take over as the new main colas? Is it supposed to be the regrowth or the branches in between the fan leaves and the main stem?

I have never understood fimming. Are you supposed to just cut the top of the main stem or also the leaves that it shows the red line passing through? If you just cut the main stem I don't see how it's any different from doing a topping you're just doing it at the highest node rather than the next one down. If you cut the leaves also though I don't understand how it makes it any different or why cutting the leaves is desirable.
Eugene Garrylock - Wed, 26 Jun 2019 04:44:25 EST WmMVwVjQ No.146768 Reply
The idea is that the new growth points are closer together, which can give a more even canopy.

I've never felt the need to fim though, a lot of cultivars produce four identical branches when topped.

So this is seeds from trim ive found and one of has started the grow. The others were found one day after the next so I added them to the plate each day but im not sure if they're dead, except nemo over here which is what ill name him if he lives to be smoked. (if its a he idk when or how I'll tell) I think he is ready to be put into some soil and sprayed with some pH 0.7ish water. I need to figure out how long the light cycles are and if I use the sun or my closet with a ring light that can switch between white and yellow so which color.

A bag of potting soil is generally pretty cheap, failing that just get some good topsoil from a garden or something. Weed grows better in sandy soil with good drainage rather than stuff with a lot of clay. If it's got a lot of clay, add perlite or vermiculite, in fact adding either will only help any soil mix you make. I've never grown in soil, I always do hydro and plant in rockwool cubes, but I'm pretty sure the planting depth is the same at around a half inch or even less. You don't want the plant to have to push through a ton of dirt to get to the surface. Remember to use a pot with good drainage and make sure to not let the seedling dry out completely. At the same time, don't drown the thing either. Let the soil dry out some between waterings. If the leaves are drooping and you have slow growth and your soil is really wet, you probably need to let it dry out and get some oxygen to the roots. Once the plant is a bit bigger and has deeper roots, it's okay to let it dry out more since the deepest soil will dry out the slowest and the plant will still be able to get water with the deeper roots even when the top level of soil is dry, just never let it dry out completely. You can gauge wetness either by sticking your finger in the dirt or by picking up the pot. A heavier pot means more water and vice versa.

Don't skimp on soil, it's the best extra 2-4 bucks you'll spend in the grow, shitty soil only leads to a host of problems and a lot of extra work/stress down the road. Also use the sun, it´s free and has way more light output at it´s zenith than any lamp can produce.

I grew some kira white thunder last year, started it off in the greenhouse around about March, and then transferred it outside around August, and harvested it around October. It worked splendidly, grew really tall, got a massive yield, and had more than I could smoke.

Just a quick question, is it too late to plant some now?

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?

Still need to find the other ingredients but the pharmacon is there.

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

question is just how to set it up
