So I transplanted my flowering clone into a 10gal pot. As I was taking her out of the old pot, I took out and inch of soil from the top and found what looked like grubs or maggots. All white. I panicked and just took out a few inches of soil until I didn't see any more bugs, then I threw her in the 10gal with this new soil. I was using Recipe 420 at first.
What can I use against these critters?

I did a bit more research and found that mixing 3:10 hydrogen (peroxide:water) works as a pesticide in the soil.
Has anyone tried this?

I know that a lot of buggers don't like citrus and mint family oils so maybe spritz a bit of either maybe both around the base of the plant/soil/pot. You could probably sprinkle some mint leaves around the soil too. This is just information I've heard from growers though so you may want to research it yourself.

Use soilless media and fertilizers like fish emulsion if you want to keep it organic. Although if you do this, it will smell, and you will likely have problems trying to figure out the amount you need and gnats.

Therefore, stick to the proper ratio of nutrients to soil, this varies per the genetics of the plant. Using granular fertilizers and soil less media are good deterrents. You can also use a compost tea to water the plant.

As for the existing creatures. Use diatomaceous earth to give them death by 1000 cuts!

Sorry for the dumb question but if I cut/twist and pick the mushrooms off will the log remain inoculated with spores? I'm growing shiitake and I don't know how many plug spawns I should get.

Yeah, it should. That's how commercial white mushroom growers do it, and they get multiple flushes. Also when I grew cubes I picked them off at the base with my hands and got a couple flushes. Not to mention removing the carpophore doesn't remove the mycelium so you should be good. Just keep your terrarium misted and vent it around three times a day or so.

Inoculation is conducted by spores or through plugs that are inoculated with mycelium. If you pick the mushroom off the log, then you are literally chopping the dick off the log. The dick is the mushroom. The mushroom is like a dick because it is full of spores and spores are like sperm. Inside of the log grows the mycelium. It spreads through the core of the log and produces fruiting bodies which you term as "mushrooms".

So to answer your question, yes, it will remain inoculated. The number of plugs that you need depends on the size of the log and the type of wood. If you learn to make your own plugs, then you can put as many in the log as you want. You ought to research more. Not only will you have more fun, but you will be more successful. A win/win approach.

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.

yeah its just for me, i've been growing all sorts of small plants that yield not that much in term of weight, but pretty good in terms of variety. if i wanted to make money selling something i'd sell seeds. you can ship them a lot easier and the price per gram you get on seeds is astounding.

not all too much growth for 3 weeks because its been kinda cold, but i've got no reason to be in a rush, theres no late season molds or anything eating it yet

I did better on weight last year with fewer plants.
I saw someone doing grafting on another website makes me wonder if i could do fewer plants ands graft to get muh diversity without suffering the loss of weight.
I could fit maybe like 5-6 big plants like yours in the space I have, if they each had 10 grafts maybe i could get the best of both worlds.

So I started a one plant outdoor grow back around early August. Unfortunately I'm in Virginia so it's been cloudy since the beginning of October and cold so I had too move it indoors. I just germinated the seed and sowed it in a pot, no nutrients, just water and sunlight and it was healthy as an ox until the sun went away and I had to move it indoors. Now all the leaves are dried up except for some small ones in the buds. The buds have orange hairs so I think their close to harvest, it's just they seem rather small. The nugs are purple.

Should I cut my losses and just harvest? Or wade it out and keep watering it and leaving under a light? I might get some grow bulbs when I get paid.

hey /crops/

I'm trying to find an old grasscity or similar forum post where a poster documented an indoor grow op using a single light bulb/source. It had set a record for grams per watt, or grams per lumen, or something along those lines. He had three tiers of pvc tubing arranged in an octagonal shape, with each tier flowing into the one below it. So the entire length of pvc was connected together. In the center of this was a single light bulb that all plants were growing towards.

The forum post is very old. I initially found a link to that post 5-6 years ago, and even back then the post was archived and some of the images were missing due to being hosted on an antiquated image hosting site like imageshack. I spent too long trying to find that post on my own and so now I have to ask for help. Obviously I know the basics of the technique, but I still want to find and re-read that post.

Thanks in advance if you're able to locate it for me.

I'm playing with the idea of converting an old grain silo into a growing area. Farms in my state have been shutting down at an increasing rate. I know a lot of farmers who are interested in industrial hemp, but outdoor crop farming has been extremely shitty with the wild swings in weather and temperature, so naturally they're hesitant to move forward. If I can make this work then it would hopefully give the remaining farmers an option.

yes and no. "industrial hemp" only means cannabis with below .3% thc. most "hemp" farmers are growing shitty plants for their fibers or seeds. but there are strains of cannabis which fit this description (.3% thc and under) but look exactly like a regular pot plant, and they are rich in cbd. I would be growing this variety of hemp, and once medical or recreational weed was legal in my state I would transfer over to it. And of course, people could grow things other than hemp/weed - almost anything that can be grown hydroponically could be grown this way

Fogponic cannabis seedlings, day 8.

Other possibly-relevant info:

  • Brown coloration to effected root, but didn't bubble when treated with H2O2 as root rot generally does

  • 10sec on/2:30min off fog schedule

  • The plant was effected by LED burn a day or two ago but has appeared to be recovering since then.

  • pH ranges from 5.5 to 6.5

  • ppm hovers around 70, mostly from using pH up/down (reverse osmosis water with some minerals re-added), and EC roughly double that

  • No nutrients used (yet)

Thanks comrade, yeah from everything I understand this will be the best system but also probably the most temperamental. I knew I'd probably kill some plants doing this (first time grower trying probably the hardest grow medium) but the reality of it is expectedly unpleasant lol.

Other boards thought it was probably air-pruning which makes sense as I recently decreased the fog period and increased the off period. I've left the fog period alone now but decreased the off period, should be better but not sure this plant will recover. Either way, assuming that was indeed the cause, something learned.

So the plant's taproot still looks damaged but didn't get any worse. The roots around it continue to grow and develop significant hair roots. I think it was a matter of air pruning, makes the most sense. Not sure this specific plant will make it and if it does it'll possibly be quite stunted, but at least I should be able to avoid it in the future.

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.

There is SANlight which makes ridiculously overpriced LED bar style lights. (Austrian Company)
Related to that there's Greenception which you can also find on Amazon which has the new (bar) style LED lights.(probably imported Chinaware)

Under no circumstances you should get one of these compact Panels with fans & purple light.
You can also get this kit.

How often should i water these? Do they get enough light just in the corner of my room or should i get a plant light?

The cacti you have is a variegated gymnocalycium scion grafted to a hylocereus rootstock. Very common and mass produced by companies like Altman's. Note that you cannot degraft and grow only the gymno nor can you take the pups off and root them. They must be grafted.

First and foremost you need to move it to a larger pot. This goes for both of your plants pictured. It is rootbound assuredly and the soil is no good. Both need a good cacti soil. That is to say a largely inorganic soil that is fast draining. You also need to put them in clay or smart pots and not plastic as it retains water and doesn't allow the soil to breathe.

Now that you have your cactus and succulent in new, better homes lets talk about water and light.

During their active periods they should be placed in a south facing window if possible or light/partial shade and should be watered once the soil is completely dry. This is usually about once a week. When they enter dormancy they can go for quite a while without water and minimal to no light. The most important thing here is to not over water.

Hello so I have four plants going on outside at my parents house and one of the plants starting flowering in July and I've been harvesting it these past couple days because some of the buds are starting to rot(It could go for another week but don't want to lose the colas). However I noticed some of the buds have fucking seeds in them, but not all of them. Maybe like every 1 in 5 has seeds in. I looked it up and i looks like it might be a hermaphrodite? I have two other plants in that particular garden and one more on the other side of the yard. Are those are plants going to get fucked over?

I also grow outdoors and I usually find a few seeds every now and again in most of my plants and i've never had them hermie. Give them a good once over though and double check. Usually if you get a few seeds and you're outdoors it means that someone else has a male somewhere. Apparently the pollen can travel for 10miles, which is a huge radius.
I also heard once upon a time that fems can sometimes just produce seeds if you keep them going long enough. Not sure if this is entirely true but it would explain alot about the seeds i've found in my plants.

A few seeds in outdoor is totally usual and totally fine.

I doesn't have to be males in your area (and again pollen can travel huge distances) but can also be a pollen from a female plants.

Especially with fluctuating temperatures (like outdoor) plants can develop limited hermaphroditism which does not mean it's a full on hermie.
It will just develop very few pollen sack you hardly notice. And that can be from one of your plants or probably of some plant the next town over.
