in australias summer
from the local picking spot of subaeruginosa variety, soil samples were taken from various patches of the magic woods, be it summer, we could see no visible mushroom activity and picked spots at random.. (happened to be in the area)
questions are:
if put in a garden pot in shady area at home and watered, could i get lucky and grow some backyard shrooms?
is there a way to use these soil samples to do an indoor grow with a tub

Not sure this belongs on /crops/ seeing as how these are FUNGUS not PLANTS. Nevertheless I will consult my mycologist friend and get back to you. Just emailed him a minute ago.

to be fair, the board is called ((Growing)) and Botany.
while fungus are not technically plants, they are neither animals and therefore they are considered a crop.
maybe we should have a dedicated fungus board to keep things more organized,
but lets face it, organization isn't our strongest quality.

>if put in a garden pot in shady area at home and watered, could i get lucky and grow some backyard shrooms?

You could but its not too terribly likely. I always dump out my substrate, mushroom metabolites, etc out in the woods on my property and its been a pretty decent patch however just watering some soil in a bucket is not likely to give you results and certainly not good ones. There is no guarantee that there is hypha there and its probably going to get out competed even if it is in there.

>is there a way to use these soil samples to do an indoor grow with a tub
Yes, possibly. What you are going to want to do is take several samples to agar and see what you get. If you see some mycellia then you've at least got something. Let it present as much as possible. You're almost certainly going to be dealing with a lot of contams. After that you need to start some agar to agar transfers slowly cleaning up the plates until you are left with, what you hope is, subaeruginosa which it might not even be and one that is dominate and free from contams.

Once you have that then do a small test run with your nice clean plates to confirm you've gotten the right thing. If so then you're good to go. Just remember subaeruginosa are woodlovers.

You can make this a lot easier by going back and collecting some actual mycellia, fruits if you find them and get prints, and then clean it up on agar as you normally would since there will be contams and go from there. Its going to be a hell of a lot easier and much less work and money to do that rather than trying to pull a clean plate out of soil that might have some spores or hypha.

Once that is done you can then dump your finished run in a nice spot on your property and then you have your backyard boomers.

Male pollen production help

I've been trying to make female pollen with my current batch. I do not believe it is working since the treated branches are showing pistils. I'd like to get some more info from someone with experience.

I treated 4 branches of a single plant.

This plant showed remarkably fast growth so I thought it would be a good idea to breed it. Since I have no males or pollen of any kind, I decided to make some cuttings. Most cuttings took roots and are currently in another separate environment.

The branches were labelled 1,2,3 and 4.

1 and 3 were sprayed with a fine mist spray bottle, containing a solution of gibberellic acid 100 ppm. This solution had a little detergent because I don't have any lab surfactants.

2 and 4 were treated with what I believe is silver thiosulfate. I made this solution on November 2nd 2020, from sodium thiosulphate and a solution of silver nitrate. The thing is this solution was made the 4th of April 2019, it could even be from 2018 because I am a dumbass who forgot to write down the year. It was stored inside a fridge on a brown glass bottle covered with aluminum foil. I suspect this solution didn't work because of how unaffected 2 and 4 seem by the treatment, also because my hands didn't show small black freckles after applying the treatment.

2 and 4 were not sprayed on but rather had 2 cotton wads (each, so a total of 4) strapped around them, which were given 1 ml of the solution (each).

The schedule was as follows:

1 and 4 were treated once a day at lights out. For 10 days, starting with the first day of 12/12 photoperiod.

2 and 3 were treated once a day at lights out. For 10 days, starting 5 days before the 12/12 photoperiod change. So they were treated 5 days during the 18/6 photoperiod, then photoperiod was changed to 12/12, and 5 days of treatment followed.

I like using gibberellic acid because it doesn't stain and it's cheaper here than colloidal silver or silver thiosulphate. So it would be ideal to be successful using it and not any of the silver methods.

The plant I used is of doubtful origin. I had this idea in my head that only non feminized (once identified as a female) could be used to make female pollen. So I made sure the plant I used wasn't feminized. Is it possible for an already feminized plant bought from a seed bank, to be turned into a male using any of these treatments?

What could be making this treatment fail? I mean besides the fact that the silver thiosulphate solution was probably a dud.
Any help is welcome. Period of treatment, which work, which don't, solution concentration too and methods of delivery also help. Anything you can think of please tell me. Thanks.

>Is it possible for an already feminized plant bought from a seed bank, to be turned into a male using any of these treatments?
yes, it works although it won't turn them male genetically, just cause them to grow male sex organs and produce pollen which is why any plants fertilized by that pollen will be female.

>What could be making this treatment fail?

too low of a concentration or not enough treatments. It usually takes at least 10 days spraying 2-3 times per day, but it can take more than that. I would say try upping the amount of times per day you spray and keep going until it works.

Breeding regulars with feminized

Is it good idea to cross feminized plants with regular males if you want to make more regular seeds? I have some old regular strains and i prefer using regulars since i grow only outdoors and use autoflowers so i cant keep clones or anything and dont want to keep buying more and more seeds every year. The problem is that pretty much nobody sells regular seeds anymore, at least anything new. I dont want to inbreed my strains too much and need to mix some new genes in the pool.

Will i end up having hermie genetics this way or is it standard practise?
Simon Birrydale - Thu, 05 Mar 2020 15:46:40 EST 5UYjC0Y4 No.147207 Reply
It will work fine, just make sure you get decent genetics for the male plant too. You can stress the female plants with colloidol silver and get them to create pollen sacks that you can use to fertilize your plants as well if you can't find any male seeds. This will create feminized seeds only if you do it this way. There is no downside to using feminized seeds, in fact it's much better because you don't want any male plants because they don't produce any weed, only pollen sacks and if you have any male plants near females you are trying to grow it will just cause them to go to seed.

So, I'm over 6 weeks into flowering, I've already harvested five of my plants, all beautiful, smoke great, good buzz, all chopped pretty much on time with what I expected. I have one plant though, that still only looks like it's three weeks along. A lot of pistils, all stark white, looks kinda like pic related. I'm growing in a cabinet, all the plants under the same light, literally inches from each other, all on the same exact schedule. I'm growing from bagseed, so I know there can be differences in the plants, but goddamn, it should be relatively on the same schedule.

Wich cactus is better in regards to working with and mescaline content? Or does it matter?

Should I just go with the first patch I find growing? (I live in a desert climate)

Also how do I tell wich cactus r the good ones?

Never heard of peruvian torch but I doubt it grows as quick or is as cheap to buy as san pedro. San pedro is great for extractions, but if you just want to eat the cactus itself you're gonna want peyote so you don't have to eat a ton.

"San Pedro" is Trichocereus Pachanoi. Peruvian torch is Trichocereus Peruvianus. There are two of the "big three" columnars the other being Bolivian torch (Trichocereus Bridgesii)

The "quick growing" T. Pach aka PC or PachaNOT is shit for extractions and has very low mescaline content. See: https://troutsnotes.com/pachanot/ Without knowing what you are looking for you can be assured that most San Pedros for sale are PC.

Typical Bridgesii, Pach, and Peruvianus cultivars all grow at about the same rate and have similar mescaline content with Peruvianus being higher on average. However this number varies greatly due to the huge amount of variables that have an impact on the mescaline(and other active alkaloid) production.

Due to the price, slow growth speeds, lack of availability, protected status, legality, conservation, etc it doesn't make sense to choose L. Williamsii over a columnar if you are just brewing a batch. With the right columnars you can come pretty close to the mesc content of L. Williamsii as well.

OP this is a very difficult question and depends on a ton of factors. Desert climate doesn't come close to providing enough info to tell you which would be better. Are you able to easily ID T. Peru V. T. Pach V. PC? In the most general sense look for the oldest stand you can find and take old growth not new. If you happen upon some with mutant characteristics like crisate or monstrosus go for one of those. Generally the slower growing the higher the mesc content but again its variable.

So I've never ever planted canna. before, and it's kinda hard to sort through all the different variants of how to go about it.
I'm limited to growing 1-3 plants at most, I'll have to use a growbox.
What would be the currently most power efficient way to grow under these limations with modern tooling and lights?
I seem to remember using alu-foil inside the box to reflext as much light as possible, to make it less wasteful.

Are CFL still a thing? Or is some kind of LEDs where it's at nowadays?

My timer busted and I only noticed after plants got 2 and a half hours extra light during flower, one is beginning of week 5 the other is almost at week 3.

I gave them 12 hours of dark once I noticed but the problem here is I kinda need them to stay on 7am-7pm, but this fuck up means they'd be on 10.30-10.30pm if I continued like this, would I be able to shut the lights off at 7pm, give them a short day and just move them back to 7-7 or should I stay on 10.30-10.30?

The 7gal fabric pot is holding a ManBearAlienPig seed....somewhere. I was putting the seed in the soil last when it fell outta my hand into the soil in a random spot. I tried looking for it to no avail. Should I keep watering it and wait for it to sprout or should I take the L and pop another seed.

The red cup is holding a 3Bears OG crossed with Heisenberg Special, Tooth Decay and Strawberry Nuggets.

Both of these are auto flowers

Because that's how I've always done it. Transplanting autos is no bueno. Regular seeds don't get shocked when transplanted but autos do. Although, I have one auto in a solo cup as you can see. For me, my results have always been better when I start I'm the finishing pot. The site where I go these autos from say you should start them in the finishing pot to avoid shocking the plant.

I just harvested my pieface og 40grams.

We start plants in smaller containers when they're being stored in an outdoor nursery, because it prevents growth of weeds on the seedling. In a big pot there's too much empty space around the seed where weeds can grow. It looks like OP's growing indoors, so it's a lot less likely that weeds will pop up in his pot.

Do the autos go into shock, even if you transplant into fertilizer and water with cold water immediately afterwards?
Homegrownmids - Tue, 21 Jan 2020 10:02:26 EST 0wQesvHA No.147154 Reply
I bring them indoors and supplement with indoor light. I give them all the sunlight available, not a nursery, they just sit on top of my patio roof for Max sun.

This is my first time growing an autoflower. I've only read transplanting shocks the autos but I haven't read too much into it, I'm just winging it honestly. I've grown regular seeds before but I'm much more comfortable with clones. I've grown regular seeds in much bigger pots and also even dixie cup shot glasses. I'm assuming autos are much more sensitive. From people who grow autos -"it takes more skill to grow an auto than a reg" from people who grow regs - "autos are for people who can't grow" it's a trip. I'm not an expert grower but I know what works for me, and so far what works for me doesn't work for an auto.
