Attention Cultivators and Those Who Want to Become a Cultivator! 

Going forward we will be having a weekly (or biweekly) discussion thread ranging in topics that aim to cover the spectrum of cannabis cultivation, breeding, harvesting, curing, and everything else related to our favorite plant.  The idea is a topic is posted for the week and we spend the week discussing issues related to the topic, strategies, techniques, different experiences, questions that people have so that we can all come to a better understanding of the issues.  Simply put, I (and I would assume all of you too) want to be able to grow the absolute best cannabis that I can.  In order to do that we must learn as much as possible.  Some people like to learn from their mistakes.  I prefer to learn from your mistakes so that I dont have to go through that heartache.  Sharing experiences is key.  I want to implore everyone to ask questions, as many questions as you have.  In a few years we will have collected a HUGE repository of information for future growers.  Think of this as a class.  Use this thread to make suggestions regarding what topics you think we should cover.  Here are just a few examples....

Preparing for a Grow, Germination, seedling care and development, Root care and issues, nutrients, harvesting, selective breeding, basic cannabis genetics, the list goes on and on and on. 

The first step to acquiring new knowledge is admitting ignorance.  no ego's allowed in here, no personal attacks will be tolerated.  Do not make an angry rebuttal in haste.  Gather your evidence and present it respectfully.  Consider this an academic environment.  if someone corrects what you have said or posted.  I just ask that any person who wishes to overturn what another person has said to present facts of your own to prove your point.  Feel free to use pictures to help illustrate any points you have.  I would also encourage you to incorporate the use of polling when it's use is appropriate.

Thank you and let's get our learn on!

I was thinking about doing 'Preparing for your grow' first as this is the foundation for any successful grow regardless of size and investment.

oh man, that could be like a 4 week topic though. hell, we have an entire forum just dedicated to grow room design here. do we want to start with things like lighting and ventilation, or should we start with the very first step of growing (ie, germination and seedlings). Room design is so custom that it might be impossible to get a good knowledge base anyway. designing a room with 10,000W of light is completely different from a closet or renovating a file cabinet etc.

I'm about to do a massive writeup i mean it could be this time next year before everything is running in my room and everything is writen and pictures and and and and would take any contributions and would gladly give you your props for it..

So I personally would like to hear a little on it to brainstorm and come out with a good outlineguidething to make sure I hit most every detail.

you should make a thread to brainstorm too man. I was helping a guy near me design a 9KW room and it really helped me to bounce some thoughts off the other members here. we have some insanely smart green-thumbs lurking around

Ah..I'm gonna start doing interactive guides...

Build a part, post what I did with pictures wait 24 hours for questions...answer any and then do the next part and so on

Eventually people would start following them and we could have a something called GIG's(Growery's Interactive Guides)

I know it sounds gay but I like it.

exactly!  You germinate your seeds before you plan your grow?  By preparing for your grow I was referring to identifying and discussing the absolute basics for a grow.  Whether you grow with 30kw or with 150 watts you need basic items that are required for either sized grow.  i was thinking this would be one of the easier ones to do.

    #369100 - 02/21/10 01:08 AM (9 years, 4 months ago)

I guess so yeah. we'll lay out basic requirements but it'll be impossible to get too specific with it. laying out general lighting minimums, CFM requirements and ventilation ideas would be a good starting point. Then I think we should move on to selecting a medium and lay out all the pros and cons of the myriad of different growing mediums available. Maybe even split it up into soil (you could write a book just on that topic alone) and soil-less/hydroponic options (another book)


Are we going to take some of the best posts from this and compile it or just let the threads speak for themselves?

I like the idea, but I do have my concerns, although I'm not sure exactly what they are... lol

So are we going to start a separate thread for each of these discussions I'm guessing?  This would be where we brainstorm ideas for the topics?  I'm sure each discussion will just keep going, there is so much to cover and 1 week isn't going to cut it, but adding a new topic each week is however a good idea because it's like adding chapters into a book.

Preparing for a grow is a good one IMO...  Who says we can't get specific???

Fuckin love the idea guys. And I think starting with a grow planning discussion is the logical starting topic. Try to cover all the little steps any grow needs to take before putting dirt in a pot or filling your reservoir.

There will be lots of disagreement on best practices in this first week though as every grower has different ways they do things. We need to focus on the broad idea rather then any individual technique. Perhaps that will even help expose pros and cons we don't normally think about.

I would also say once a weeks topic has cooled off maybe one of the mods can do a run through and write a summary, kind of like keeping the minutes at a meeting. The best and clearest info could then be put in a permanent sticky or added to the main content as a guide.

Now what are we waiting for lets start!

This is a really great idea and I love it! Discussing grow room design is an endless discussion, but in my very short time as a grower, I've been amused to find that there are in fact a few different ways just to germinate your seeds.

However, with that particular topic I think we can go much more in depth than just talking about the best technique, but rather we can explore variations. For example, I have a good friend who's a grower in the UK and he told me he germinates by dropping seeds in a glass of water which is a pretty common method, but then he places the glass over a heater, which I think is extremely unusual.

Perhaps we could open our first discussion by talking about what are the best ways to simply germinate seeds?

when I germinate I use the paper towel method in a tuperware container, but I put the tupperware on top of my reflector. my 600W MH bulb does a fine job of keeping them warm

Just like Harry said. Only I like to use an opaque container such as a Cool Whip bowl or butter dish. All kinds of disposable containers that are great for paper toweling.

The heat application part I don't understand fully tbh. When I got my first seeds, I was told to keep them in the dark in a cool place around 20C. :shrug: I guess that's wrong though.

In any case, instead of discussing this in this thread perhaps we should be proactive and put FurrowedBrows idea into action?

I think we're going to start with room design. I'm about to take a shower, hit the hydro store and then I'll come back and start the discussion thread unless Furrowed gets to it first. in the mean time I suggest everyone write up a little something they think is the most important aspect of "getting started" and then we can get that thread off to a hot beginning!

eh, furrowed and I discussed it further via PM and we decided that it was necessary. we won't go into detail quite as much as we could, but giving new users a general guideline on what to think about as far as lights, ventilation, growing medium, nutrients etc makes the most sense. you wouldn't want to start germinating your seeds before you have a place to grow would you? That's what he asked me and I'm inclined to agree

Fair enough, I thought this was more of a discussion for us that could later on be referenced - wasn't aware we were making a guide of sorts. :shrug: Whatevs, I'm down.

I think forrowed should start off with the knowledge people should have before attempting to germinate seeds. (Just an idea)

Examples:

- pH meters/strips, the various methods of adjusting your pH and an over view of pH and it's level of importance

- understanding lighting, especially watts/lumens and use of correct terms and their meanings.

-grow room construction 101, the importance of ventilation, understanding what size room will work for the growers personal situation.  Maybe a few pics of grow rooms ranging from 400-1000 watts and what is needed for each setup of each size.

I just think that there is a lot a noob has to learn before even attempting to germinate some beans......just :2cents:

Edit: didn't read the replies this thread recived while I typed this...sorry if it seems like I regurgitated others info. Cuz I hate that shit!

Hi guys!  Good to see the enthusiasm!  I did start a quick little soemthing on preparing for your grow.  It's in my journal atm.  I was thinking about it then started doing some research and i got side tracked with apartment growing specifics.  There's not much to the post I made.  It bascially includes Azyle00's post as a starting point.  That post is here....

https://www.growery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/309193.

I would like to see a thorough discussion take place then, if possible, someone to write up something that succinctly summarizes the issues discussed.  That way people really wont have to read 5 or whoever many pages the threads go on for.  Should I go ahead and bring this thread to the cult section?

I think you should! that was the post I was referring to earlier but I couldn't find it. why'd you move it to the dump?

ps, only mods can see it where you have it now so you won't be getting feedback from anybody else...

Next up - germination
then - roots

what's everyone think about that?  Anyone care?

I think germination is a bit narrow for a weekly topic perhaps roll it in with a week on seedling/clone special care? I do like the roots topic I know there is a ton going on under there and I have no clue what.

Germination a narrow topic? I don't think so. "Preparing for Your Grow" was too general for me to chime in. Preparation is an ongoing process for me.

Germination on the other hand is just specialized enough to get some unique responses. Unfortunately, I think most people on this site (and anywhere for that matter) are in consensus with the Paper Towel method. IDK let's find out.

replace that paper towel with a washcloth, then it's ftw!  but we'll get into that in just a bit.

I like this method also. Sometimes I forget about seeds for a day are so. Stoner thing.
The seeds are easier to get out of the paper if they grow in to paper a little.

I am growing for the first time, and plan to germinate about 30-50 seeds in paper towels. Should I just use warm water and dampen the towels, put 2 or 3 seeds in each one folded in half, then leave them in a windowsill for a day? This is currently my plan. From there I am thinking about transferring into 16 ounce solo cups using regular potting soil from a garden store. Good Idea?
Gracias

it all sounds good after the germination part but I think we should talk about your papertowl plan a little bit.

First, don't leave them on the windowsill because that will just dry out the towels way too fast. also, you don't need to limit yourself to just 3 seeds per towel. I usually fold up one or two paper towls and get them nice and moist, then place in the bottom of a tupperware container (like one of those square sandwich thingies). Put your seeds on top of that (I've done as many as 30 seeds in one tupperware without any issues) and then put another moist papertowel on top of them, then close the lid. Set it and forget it for about 24-36 hours and you're golden!

Awesome! For some reason I guess I was thinking the light from the windowsill would help them germinate better, like some potato experiment we did in elementary school. Do I have to keep them around any temperature, or is room temperature fine?

Thanks for the advice.

technically 75-80 is ideal, but I just keep mine in my room at around 65-70 and I have near 100% success rates.

yup what he said.

so harry, it's monday man i am waiting for the knowledge to come flowing from your fingertips on this germination issue, where is it? j/k if i were in school and working right now i would never be on here so mad props for making time. I am interested though because as much as i have worked with plants in my life the only ways I have started seeds are in a paper towel and in dirt for long germination periods. I am fascinated that there is more to it.

does temperature even effect germination %? I was under the assumption that seeds are either viable or not viable either because they are to old or not mature. that is not to say that seeds will sprout in any temperature just that as long as you are in the window of tolerance they will either pop or not and temperature only helped speed things along.

As far as I understand it merely replicates the warm soil temps of springtime sunshine on the dirt and helps signal to the plant that summer is near.

As for the germination thing, I'm getting there, but the roots issue is the one where I have FAR more to say about it. Germination is rather simple, but roots are my favorite part of the plant :grin:

well i already said i felt germination was a bit narrow for a whole week but when people said theres enough info to fill a discussion i pulled up a chair. either way it's all good in the hood. going to go scrape bowser while i job hunt. i might even get enough for a single knifer, god i can't wait for the dream to be ready.

This is almost the exact way I do it, works excellent compared to other methods I've tried over the years.  I've had germination in under 24 hours doing it this way.
