Poppy DWC project
    #706763 - 01/12/14 10:00 PM (2 years, 10 months ago)

Saw a cool thread on indoor poppys in a sterilite tub I've been wanting to replicate. I sprinkled some seeds on rockwool and just now got some sprouts happening. Have single lilac, and Turkish  2 cubes each. If I can get them to the cabbage stage I'll post up some pics.

Yeah I ran a few strains outdoor last year and failed twice with indoor several months back. Pretty sure I know the mistakes I made. I'm fairly certain if I can thin each cube to a single healthy plant to cabbage it'll make it through to the end.

1 2' 4 bulb t5 fixture and add another if they sprawl out a lot. Should be plenty just need to mind the schedule which seems like the finicky part.

Growing slow but getting there. One cube has a couple sprouts and the others show signs of germination but also look dry like they didn't make it. Wondering if rockwool in standing water is too much moisture. I'm giving them natural sunlight in cubes during the day and bringing in at night for now.

Thinking about starting another batch of cubes. I thought the cold would help but I'm actually seeing much slower growth than I did last spring. Going to give some heat after they germ.

Here's that link. I'm planning on using the same idea but a single bucket per plant and going to feed for what I assume would make for optimum growth.

The seedlings in the rockwool are not doing well. My sprouts in soil that were planted a week later are shooting past the hydro sprouts. May have been too moist so I bought them a separate clone dome with a mesh insert to keep them hovering above the water below. If they don't start taking off I'll try again using coco planted in the 6" mesh bucket lid I plan on them living in while growing.

Super slow growth. Not sure what's going on unless my starter mix is fucking things up. The single lilac is going the best and about half the sprouts dampened off. What's left just popped the second set of leafs. 62 degrees average in the house and they are on a 12/12 schedule still under t5 lighting.

Its weird they are so hard to grow indoors. 


Yet outdoors I just sprinkle seeds, and just water.... and they grow fast and healthy. 


Ive never ran into a problem doing em outdoor.  but my indoor experiment was a flop this winter

Yeah I'm guessing they are just very sensitive to their light schedule. I'm going to keep trying though. Next I think I'll just sow seeds directly on coco or hydroton already in the mesh bucket lids and kick on the irrigation as soon as they seem like they are taking off.

Indoors just may be impossible. Like clockwork they dampen off after the second set of leaves pop the little hairs. This is the 3rd time. Going to try again next week with a new approach and probably a new strain too.

Have you ever read the book by Robert Neil Bunch called Hydroponic Heroin: How to Grow Opium Poppies Without Soil?

I personally have not read it. But, it looks like some well documented information on hydroponic poppies.

It hasn't turned up on any torrent sites I know of. It is available on Amazon for less than 20$

I would love to see how successful hydro poppies cam be.
