First grow, 12 powerfull cfls, soil. ANY help will be GRATLY apreciated
    #579235 - 08/18/11 06:22 PM (5 years, 3 months ago)

Hello, all!
3 weeks ago I started my 1st grow. Im using a "special" potting mix...1pt mirricle grow; 1pt vermiculite; 1pt. Perlite; 2pt Scott potting soil. I had to do this as I was gathering supplys for a pro soil formula (mo pro then me at least), which listed all of the above, except with worm castings instead of miricle grow. Also, I added half a handfull of dolomite lime for 1sq ft. of mix.
For lights I currently have a 42 watt (200 equivalent) cfl for each of my 3 week old plants. Tommorow I will have a total of 440watts (8 42 watters, 4 26 watters). My grow room is 4ft by 2ft.
I am using MG grow food ONLY because idk any good nutes...
I water when the first layer of soil dries.
I will upload LOTS of pics, if I see that ppl actually read this <.<

suggestions? Criticism? PLEEEEEEEASE. I also have a bunch of questions for soil pros

Ok heres the picks from just now:)
I had to threw 2 out (males), so now its 2 sour, and an unknown seedling, but I have more germinating which is why I did not set up the lights compleatly.

24 hours later (right after installing the all new Dimotech Ghetto CFL Fixture 2.0ยก...i knew woodshop would get paid off sooner or later xD)





Now theres a total of 25800 lumens in my 4 x 2; 3225 lumens per sq. Ft... is that good enouph? Im going to have a total of 34800 in about a week, but idk if ill upgrade again untill flowering.
Also, im keeping the lights a little further away now, because I have a half_ass wooden hood, and am using Y sockets so the light would not be coming from above the tops.......this got me thinking and....wouldnt that make the plant generate new tips, without stress? Or is it stress.
Ok I finally confused myself; carry on...
Thanks in advance

Im starting to worry about ventilation, in the pic u can see I put a tower fan flat on the floor to draw air in....but theres no hole in the door, so its just coming from that little crack on the bottom. Im using the top shelf of the closet to incubate some shroomies, so I can use the heat for now(also first grow). But I have no idea what im going to do later on.

wow those look fantastic. Noone on shroomery answers my threads....sooo can I get 2 Q's? o.o
dont answer if its a bother...really. 1. I injected too much spore solution in some of the jars (original pf tek formula), is it possible I od'd on spores, or messed too much with the moisture content?
2. Is it true that potency is much greater in poo-grown over brf/wbs? This is for personal use (well including like 5 other people. We all tripped for first time recently and cant get any more) so potent cy>quantity.

P.S. I have another 2 syringes left, definitely trying that tec. I see you used the uuuh makeshift-closet-thingamajig fruit. Chamber tek...i stocked up on perlite tho so its Tupperware for me.

Spore overdose nah, but moisture content can be a problem. Depends on how much to much you did, if you can see water on the bottom of the jars they may take a while to finish.

Here is the way I make my syringes so obviously to many spores isn't a prob.
  There are just a few spores in there :wink:

  People can say that till they are blue in the face but myself I never found it to be the case. I like to grow on rye but it's all a personal preference thing.


The closet thing is a Martha Stewart closet from K-mart.

Here is a invention of mine that may work for ya if needed.

I too grow with rye and potency has never been an issue.  I also hate cleaning my mushies as it is (hurts my neck).  I'd hate to have to make the process longer.

Those links Magash linked you too are some of the very ones I used to get started 4 years or so back.  Now mushroom growing is second nature.  GOOD LUCK

For mushroom growing I just used wild bird seed when I was doing it :smile: It was easiest for me to get in my area and worked really wel :thumbup: I too, used some of those very threads to learn to grow shrooms! :cool: I've grown on wbs,HS,brf,rye,coir, and I've never really noticed any significant change in potency at all, but that's just me. I can't speak for a bunch of other people. Good luck!

Hey 99 I'm glad the teks I put up worked for ya. The rye tek works just as well with wbs and millet. For me rye was easier to find but when I did get off my lazy ass and pick up the wbs it was nice cause it's way way cheaper. (and yes it's just as good :omgawesome: )

Magash, that tek may not be porn related, but the pics of the mushies gave me a hard on....>.<

One question though, is it OK to use only perlite in the fruiting chamber used in the tek?
Thanks for all the help!

Btw, I don't know much about spores, and mine were white (is that normal for golden teachers?), but those syringes look more packed w/ spores then mario 2 lol
