transplanting to hempy bucket
    #287688 - 09/28/09 02:59 AM (7 years, 2 months ago)

Quick question...

I have a seedling Iv'e grown in a mix of soil, vermiculite and perlite. Is it okay to transfer it to just vermiculite and perlite?

Sure but why?  I'd do Ocean Forest, Verm, Perlite.

oh and kine, because skipping the ocean forest changes it from a soil grow to a hydro grow, and speed and yield increase correspondingly

How does it affect yield? I've understood how it can increase speed; to a point.  But im a big believer in to gain in one area you lose in another.  Unfoutuantly im un able to do my own growth experiments tho. 

To me Hydro increases speed due to nutrient uptake.  Its much much faster.  But you can lose flavor some times that way.

I've also been told "Soil takes to much room".  But to me; a 2liter bottle aint shit to grow a 3ft plant; mine did fine (coulda been better; but i wasnt the only one tending them).  I know they didnt have the root development they should for 3 footers; but like i said it wasnt just me; and they were allowed to stretch...

Its a debate i get into all the time.  I personally dont think its that big a diff... Soil vs Hydro.  i'd love to take two strains; same nutes; ect and do a hydro vs soil.  I'd also like to do full hydro vs part time hydro.  I think the timing from seed to fruit would only be at most 2 weeks apart; and i honestly dont think yeild would be affected much.  Especially cause SO many more things can be factored into yield; rather then just was it soil or hydro.

I've always used soil.  My friend swares by 1:2:2 ocean to verm and perlite.  He stabs the fuck out of the bucket every week to to mash up the roots and allow more air.  Would say he's a crazy fuck if i hadnt smoked some of his bomb chron...

The yield is a direct response to the speed of growth. Think about it, if the strain takes exactly 8 weeks to flower, and your hydro one is growing twice as fast, then it will obviously yield twice as much. cannabis has a restricted growth period in the flowering stage, so yield is a direct byproduct of growth speed.

Speed in hydro increases because instead of the roots needing to seek out nutrients and water they are directly provided and always in full contact with the root area. Also, instead of the plant needing to pump solutes into different bodily cavities to alter the osmotic potential and increase the gradient for uptake, the hydroponic solution is constantly hyperosmotic, which further increases the potential nutrient uptake. and thirdly, instead of the macronutrients needing to be fixed by various soil microbiota they are provided in an instantly available form which means that when you feed, they eat immediately, not a couple days or weeks afterwards, such as with soil.

His mixture is mostly perlite and vermiculite. What kind of nutrients and watering method is he using?

Foxfarm FTW. And as far as i know, hempy method watering.  I've only seen the outsides of the room; and go off what he's told me :laugh:
