Mushroom Farmer Goes Green - Indoor/Outdoor Soil CFL HARVEST
    #410378 - 05/02/10 02:13 PM (6 years, 6 months ago)

Well, I had to pull a week earlier than I wanted. There was some damaged nugs that had went to mould thanks to caterpillars. We are expecting a few good days of high humidity, heat, and rain. So, I pulled, trimmed, and here are some illustrations.
These are various nugs. Some too early, some just right.




This is what was left after the caterpillars were ejected from the buffet.



Well, look at that POUND!! Okay, so I fell short of my lofty goal, but I did learn alot. I still can accomplish a major motivator that originally set me into the field. I KNEW, lol, when smoking the bud this seed came from, that I could grow it sen semilla, as well as cure it better. Forgive my manicure, it was my first in a very long time, and I was ill prepared. Thanks for all your support. Its time to spark a bowl.

Note to self
Its gonna take a couple weeks for my fish to be ready. Ill have to catch enough to fill a gallon jug. Mix with 1 1/3cups of mollases to help with decomp and enzyme activity. Stir every day for 2 weeks in a lidded bucket. Foaming indicates fermentation/decomposition, and is a good sign. Strain liquid into a jug and save, plant the fish solids with the plant. Poke a hole in jug to allow gas exchange, and save. We will then have liquid fish fertilizer :laugh:

Put them out in full sun today, after introducing a second CFL (with hood) last night. Looking about the same. Seen some drooping in one, think too much handling/LST stress.

Thanks man. 3 CFL's now :laugh: 5 seedlings so far. 3 in first week, 2+ on the other 2. I want to try to grow at least 1 into a flat spiral, having many cones hopefully (by way of Fimming). Another, Im thinking of bushing out, only topping once. I only wish I had some GOOD bagseed. Only time will tell how this works. I definitely think I can at least cure better than the original farmer, lol.

Today was transplant day!!! One of our 2 stars is really looking bad. Margin rolling on newest growth, with a greenish yellow tint on the bottom leaves.There are also a couple of red spots about the size of pencil lead on one of the leaves. I believe its the PH. All I could afford was a cheap prod type PH tester, which says Im at 7. It could also be over watering. I just got me a moisture tester, and today, 2 days after watering, they were high, barely in the "moist" area. But, the other, from the same strain, looks good. I dont get it. Now, when I transferred, I noticed the roots just went down the sides, and wasnt spiraled.

I transferred using Miracle Grow Organic Choice Potting Soil
Ingredients: Formulated from 50-55% composted bark, sphagnum peat moss, pasteurized poultry litter, and an organic wetting agent.  (Nitrogen 0.10%, Phosphate 0.05%, Soluble Potash 0.05% -- Note: This product contains 0.097% slowly available nitrogen. (I added perlite) Before filling with my mix, I added a couple inches of creek rock for drainage.

After transplanting, I fed them 10ml each of Root 66 and Sugar Daddy in a gallon of chlorine evaporated tap water. I then let them sit until just a few minutes ago outside, where they were exposed to a nice storm :smile: The drooping is due to it being night me thinks. Anyways, here are the pics of the healthy one, along with seedlings. I couldve swore I took pics of the sickly one, but when I went to upload, they were gone. So Ill post pics of it tomorrow.

Before transplanting

After

And just now


And my ghetto rig (with only one bulb on so I could take a pic, lol)

Your gonna try and get a pound from four plants?! You growin outdoors or indoors?
I wish you luck either way,but 4 ounces per plant is quite a bit to expect for a first time grow. I may be wrong cuz Im still new, but that just seems pretty far out there to me. Hopefully I am wrong and can start harvesting four ounces per plant too!

I could see it outdoors, but indoors not so much.

Yes, it is an outdoor grow. I have found a few forums that I like, and I see pounds harvested off ONE outdoor bush. I doubt I will hit my goal too, but Im gonna give it one hell of a try! One thing that is becoming ever more apparent to me, is that all these commercial ferts/nutes arent really needed as much as it has become common belief. I need to just try to grow it like a damn tomato. I have learned that I need to concentrate on two things, leaf and root health. It seems most people only think about it until flowering, and lose shitloads of leaves. And that is my problem with the sickly one, she got overfed/watered.

Click on the 600W hempy grow link in my signature. I got a little over a lb from only 3 plants under a 600W, it can definitely be done

well Im workin with about 3x3 or maybe a little smaller so hopefully I can get at least around half what you did! My grow has to be held off for a few weeks minimum or few months maximum. The in laws are coming to stay with us due to financial problems. Layoffs are screwing everyone up man. Shit sucks!

At what node did you top in that grow? And is that all you did was top? Any Fimming? LST?

I topped and LST'd every 3-4 days all throughout veg. I basically just get an idea in my head for the shape I want the plant to be, and I tie and cut as necessary to reach that goal

Very nice! :borat:
I was vastly understudied, and didnt really understand LST obviously, lol, so I let em loose 10 days ago (the day after my previous entry). They are LOVING the guerrilla spot, but had a spider mite attack a plant.



And my hopes were so high because I seen a baby praying locust resting on one! So I asked the hillbillies again, and they told me Sevin Dust. So, I gave it a try the day after I noticed it (9 Days ago), and it has rained heavily since the day after that. I also transplanted 2 of the 3 younger seedlings (exhibit B and C), and took them to their outdoor home.

Also, one old tinkerer took me to a spot with a shovel, and I mentally cried as he took a shovel and cut in at only an inch deep, cutting over 95% of the root systems, tossing them in a bucket, and seeing the shock apparently on my face, casually says "Just plant 'em as soon as you git home, they aight."
Seedling Bucket

I return home, and frantically pick through the dirt and seedling mix, and set aside those the least damaged, for they were ALL in bad shape.


Here they are now, a week later...


Side note: I just wanted to share how I had to adopt to nosy neighbors while transporting to my vehicle.


Hopefully I will be visiting my babies tomorrow, and shall return hopefully with happy pictures :laugh:

I can't see your entire spot but from the looks of the pictures it looks like you are surrounding your pots with dead grass,weeds, etc etc.
Try to avoid growing in a spot that has a lot of dead brown grass,weeds,etc. Your plants will stick out like sore thumbs.
Try to make sure to grow around lush green areas and don't leave trails to your grow spot, those stick out too.
