    Cal or Mag? Too little or too much?

    Both are clones started about the same time, the one that's showing more stress was rooted sooner. Clearly it's a calcium and/or magnesium problem, but I can't decide if I think it's lockout or deficiency. Soil: Happy Frog, 2nd use, re-amended with 1/4 cup per cu. foot Kelp Meal and Seabird...

    Not having much luck with coco

    So I'm just trying coco for the first time in hempy pots. The top is coco, the bottom reservoir is perlite. So far though I've been having trouble getting both clones or seeds to root. At first when I planted clones, I pre-charged with about 220 PPM of Flora Nova Bloom and CalMag and pH'd to...

    Live chat?

    Would it be possible to implement any kind of custom Live chat feature? I've seen some other forums with something similar and I really like it, I think it'd be fun to chat with people real time. I'm guessing you've all probably thought of it and decided it against it before but just in case no...

    Thinking about buying a Blue Labs

    Y'know I've been doing this for a while now without a real good pH meter. I started out using the GH drops, and then I found some cheap digital ones. Problem is after a while they stop reading consistently even if you re-calibrate them. The drops are just so annoying to try to get the colors...

    Debating Light Schedules: Not the usual dark-cycle or no-dark-cycle dilemma

    Anyone heard of the 'Gas Lantern Routine' or 12/1? It's where you have 12 hours of light, followed by 5.5 hours of dark, another 1 hour of light, and another 5.5 hours of dark. What I don't really understand is what is the point of doing that versus just having 13 hours of lights on, and 11 of...

    What pH if mixing soil and coco?

    Right now I have 4 clones going in FFHF soil, and I have another set of clones that I'm going to rush into flower with a coco/hempy trial run. I have been excited to try coco for a while, and I plan to veg these other FFHF plants for long enough that if I like the results of coco, I will be...

    Expanding coco?

    First time buying coco-coir. This brick seems awfully small to expand to 3 cubic feet. Can anyone confirm that this will really become that much? Also I don't have any totes free to store 22 gallons of the stuff. Can I chunk off 1/4 of it or less and throw it in a 5 gallon bucket and let it...

    Questions about vegging big plants over a long period of time

    I had an idea of veg'ing out some big plants for a long period of time, because I haven't done it before, and it would work well with my environmental conditions. Normally during the late summer months, I either live in an oven or shut down my grow. I'm thinking that instead I will use a low...

    Ideas for run-off trays?

    Hey I have been looking for a better solution to this problem for a while and would like help brain storming, maybe some examples of how others have done it. Right now I just have 18" saucers that are about 1.5" deep, but they don't hold much run-off and they don't dry our very fast. I have...

    I suck at growing

    Seriously I have been doing this for a few years now and still only manage to get about 1-1.5 oz per plant max. I see people talking about lbs per plant and I feel like I just suck at this. I have got a lot of advice which usually ends in, "I don't know why you're not getting more." It's really...

    How to cycle with a mother plant and a spring shutdown?

    I have this really nice ATF cut I want to keep growing, and I am not sure how to plan out the cloning/cutting of it. I have to shutter my indoor around late-spring because the summer months are too hot and I switch to outdoors. Add to that, my place doesn't have great electricity, so I can't...

    How gentle is gentle when trying to make full-melt?

    I have read a bunch that to make full-melt bubble hash, you wanna use very gentle agitation on the very first run, and then on subsequent runs use rough agitation. Well how gentle is "gentle"? So far I have not really been able to make full melt hash, and I'm not sure if I'm just being too...

    Alaskan Thunderfuck SOG With 315W CMH

    Well the temperatures are finally good enough that I can start up my indoor grow. Just got some cuts taken off this monster Alaskan Thunderfuck that I've got growing outdoors. Very excited to grow this, the plant has been extremely vigorous despite some pretty stressful conditions. I've...

    Drain to Waste: Coarse perlite or Happy Frog

    I am thinking about using 100% perlite in a drain to waste hydro set up, but I have never done it before. I am mainly looking forward to lighter pots, and hopefully faster growth. I have used Happy Frog a lot and know all its idiosyncrasies. I also don't like how heavy it is and how often the...

    Experimental Journal: Extreme Low-Power Feminized Pollen Production

    So I had to shutter my indoor this summer due to the heat. I had an outdoor plant I wanted to sex, and I decided afterward that since I'm not doing anything else with the cloner for a bit, I may as well try to treat it with colloidal silver and see if I can get some feminized pollen. The reason...

    Adjusting pH is the most annoying thing about growing, hands down

    I absolutely detest it! Never sure if your pen is properly calibrated, or if it's the right temperature to calibrate it with the fluid, always needing to add more or less every damn try. Add a little up, now it's too high, add a little down, now it's too low, over a few over again until you've...

    Kinda-DWC bubbler cloner troubles

    Okay so I am dealing with the desert heat, shut down my indoor and sexing some clones off an outdoor plant. The problem is that while my usual cloning technique works like a charm for propagation, I haven't actually tried sustainaining plants in this setup beyond rooting. They seem to be ailing...

    Sexing clones: Root and then 12/12, or 12/12 from cutting?

    I've got some cuts off a little outdoor plant I have, and I want to sex them as quickly as possible. I'm wondering though if it's a better idea to start the cloner off under continuous light to develop roots, and then switch to 12/12 to promote flowering, or if that would just make it take more...

    Raising humidity - DIY moisture wicks

    I think I want to try to raise my humidity to see if that helps things out in my garden. I'm perpetually running at like 20-30% RH. I've tried a humidifier and it didn't really help, raised it to 40 at most, and I had to turn my exhaust fan down to even get that. Tried hanging wet towels...
