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.

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!

Yeah, if it was in miracle grow then it probably got nute burn. The curling of the leaf tips looks like it. Over or underwatering just causes drooping, not the curl at the tip. It will probably recover but it will never be as big as it could have been.

It's outdoor season.

Your best bet is find a nice spot outside and plant them there.
If you want to give them a better chance buy a bag of potting soil instead of putting them straight into the dirt. Find a nice secluded spot an check on them about once a week. Don't pick any property that is fenced in any way and don't pick a spot that is visible to regular people who just go hiking.

Indoor isn't really feasible without some investment in the low 100s
Besides lights you also need a tent, ventilation and a carbon filter.

Any idea why it is drooping?

your overwatering (in reality it's actually a lack of oxygen in the rootzone, airpruning pots for instance are a lot less suceptible to this), Cannabis doesn't like 'wet feet'. Overwatering causes drooping in just the leaflets without drooping in the stem. Underwatering causes a more general drooping.

favorite plants to grow? fish to keep? what problems have come up for you lately?

I had a 50L that was leaking, so I decided on a bigger tank and now both fish and plant are more happy. except for the hygrophila I have growing in the back of the tank. I dose trace elements but no macro's as I hoped the fish and regular water change would take care of that. also no co2 yet, which could also be the problem

They gotta grow a mother plant to cut the clones from you know and that's a little difficult if it starts flowering after 3 weeks.

>Need help deciding on a way, and ideally a specific piece of equipment, to control atmosphere (temp + humidity) in 96 sq ft, 768 cubic ft, well-insulated space in outdoor temps ranging from approx 25-115 F while minimizing punctures in existing insulation

Greetings comrades. Working on pouring all my money into a setup to try to master fogponics in my first real grow. Probably going to kill some plants. Then make the best weed ever. But that's another discussion.

I have a 8 x 8 x 12 (that's 96 sq ft, 768 cubic ft) grow space. It's very well-insulated; spent god damn $700 on polyurethane expanding spray foam insulation and going to put fiberglass insulation in the remaining space. But I live in somewhat-inland Southern California, so temperatures throughout the year may vary from low-30's (Fahrenheit) to, at the absolute rare-highest, maybe 105 or so.

Thus good atmosphere control is crucial. Because the polyurethane foam is supposed to be such a great insulator, I really want to avoid cutting an air-conditioner-sized hole in it. And because I need both cold air and hot air, I've mostly been looking at heat pumps. Specifically this one,


because it's ducted (small holes through insulation or even just connected to ventilation intake/exhaust) and fairly weak, still too strong for my space but they don't really make them much weaker than 5000 BTU. However if you read the reviews you'll see basically everyone had a shit experience with it. I called Home Depot and they said they would replace the unit or basically otherwise make things right if the company just ignored me, and I tried emailing the company to get some assurance they wouldn't ignore me if I had issues with their product but they ignored me.


>I come to /crops/ for help. Any suggestions on how to handle climate control in my grow space considering these factors?

Also current projected cost of this grow's equipment is like $2,250 even without including the heat pump or any of the structural costs (probably another $2,000) so cheaper the better, plz, I want to grow and I want to grow scientifically but damn my wallet. I don't want to significantly sacrifice on function but I don't have infinite money to blow either.

I'm only growing 6 plants. It's definitely a bigger space than necessary considering that but there won't be a TON of wasted space, just a walkway down the center and 3 plants (going to do SCROG, nebula manifold, and in the second grow probably monster cropping, so allowing for 2x2 per plant). I'm doing this 100% legally as a prelude (and hopeful fogponic proof of concept) to an actual, licensed cultivation business so won't be selling any of it. Also not a fan of HPS over LEDs, I understand their advantages but their drawbacks combined with the fact I like to think I'm an environmentalist combined with 110+ degree CA temps making heat a major consideration sold me on LEDs.

I'm also not a big believer in upgrading vs just buying the best (or at least reasonably decent) equipment to start with.

Maybe I totally misunderstand how mini splits work but I thought it was basically like installing a wall mounted air conditioner where you cut a hole basically the size of the unit? Any chance you could post an example of one with the coolant line connection you're talking about?

As for the home depot unit, I could just attach a carbon filter at the end if necessary. And yes it's on my family's owned property and 100% legal.

On mobile and I hate typing on mobile so sorry if I seem abrupt. Greatly appreciate your assistance comrade, seriously

I just searched for
split air conditioner installation
You need to hire a refrigeration technician to install it, which often costs as much as the device itself. They need to fill the coolant line with refrigerant and so on.
The advantage is you can have multiple indoor units for one outdoor unit, higher efficiency and quiet operation.
Since your family owns the property you might want to talk to them about installing a system for the whole house too.

In climates that do not go below freezing it's also the most cost effective heating solution afik.

Ahh see I was thinking mini-split rather than split AC. Mini-splits can be under $1,000, usually around $600 for the weakest (which is all I need)

In that case, yeah, that sounds great and is probably what I'll do for the actual business, but for my backyard weed shack, $1,000 low-average unit cost and $2,500 low-average installation cost is a bit above my price range, yeah

The LEDs themselves are also only about half the cost.
The heatsink and driver costs amount to about the same when ordering decent quality.

But if you are really that cheap:
230V mains

You can probably find a 110V version of them if you really need them.
If you go ahead and get a bunch of old cpu coolers from somewhere you could pretty much rig up a ghetto light system for dirt cheap.
You'd be handling mains electricity though, so good fucking luck!

For the ones of you that do run / think about running a reverse osmosis system for hydro:

This is what I am planning:
All of the osmosis related stuff is below the kitchen sink.
I want to use the tank both for storing the osmosis water as well as mixing the nutrients in.

I will equip the tank (a large drinking water canister) with a ball valve.
My osmosis system will automatically shut off once the ball valve shuts. (It's supposed to do that)
Then I will remove the filling cap of the canister, add nutrients, adjust PH, etc.
When finished I have a hose that I put inside the hydro res.
For draining I want to utilize the pump that is already in the hydro system.

I plan to do this process once a week.
Any thoughts and/or pointers?

changing the water that often is a waste of nutrients in my opinion, especially during early vegetation. It's only necessary if you're trying to stave off root rot with constant water changes rather than refrigeration or by adding beneficial bacteria, both of which are better options imo. Once you switch the lights to the flowering cycle the plant will be using a lot more nutrients and there's the possibility for salts to build and for nutrient lockout to occur so it's best to change the water more often but early on when the plant is small it's probably not needed. Keep in mind that plants can drink as much as a gallon of water per day depending on their size and atmospheric conditions so you're going to need to top off even if you change once a week. I like to keep some strong nutrient solution and some plain water and add in the amounts of each that I need to replenish my reservoir while also keeping my nutrient levels stable.

you mean drain2waste? Because the other one is recirculating, that's what I've got.
It's a ebb'n'flow system.

Drain2waste is only feastible for larger systems.
This will be a 250W 60cm grow.
If I had 4 times the area and 1KW of lights I'd think about it.

But as it stand there is no space.
Cedric Dartforth - Mon, 08 Apr 2019 13:48:23 EST S69Ie05p No.146541 Reply
Ideally yes, topping the reservoir off would save water and nutrients.
I'd have to just try what works.

And again it's a 250W system with a single plant, if that one gallon figure is accurate I'd have to change the fill the reservoir twice a week at the very least.

The nice thing is though I can always dim the lights and as I am using a 60cm tent the plant should be fine with half that power (It will be 170lm/watt leds)

Either way you slice it once I probably have to change the solution once the water level falls below 30%. Topping it off at that point might be possible or not, but I doubt I can do that more than once before having to discard the waste.

*It's an outdoor grow
*The plants have been growing healthy and fine up until flowering
*Now the leaves around the bud are curling in odd shapes and directions.

Could be an insect infestation and I'm going to be spreading diatomaceous earth to slow it down while diagnosing.

Hello there fellow green fingered nerds.
Gonna do a loose grow log and hopefully entertain you bunch of degenerates.

This year i'm growing 7 plants. All femenized seeds from a selection of banks.

G13 Haze from barneys farm x3
Jack herrer from greenhouse seeds x1
The church from Greenhouse x1
Cinderella 99, seedbank unknown x2

They popped out of the soil end of april. Using 8ltr water containers for watering, watering each one around 3.4 litres of water daily. Feeding pretty much daily.

Using Hesi neuts and have used the hesi soil neut chart as a rough guide.

They're growing on a roof terrace and I use LST and super topping methods as we have neighbors.

As summer solstice was yesterday thought I woulds start documenting as the more fun changes start to happen soon.
