cheap/free tips and tricks for when your broke or the grow store is closed
    #737924 - 06/27/14 05:54 PM (2 years, 5 months ago)

hello yall, i was just thinking about compiling list of things people can do if they dont have the funds or access to a grow store. now i have very limited exp. with growing cannabis but i have picked up a few tricks to start the list off,

*willow tree tea to use as a rooting compound (not sure if the tea is made from the bark or leaves)

*100% real honey is also suppose to work decent as a rooting compound

*baking soda as ph up

*vinegar as ph down

* you can use a set of binoculars backwards to check out your trichomes (pain in the ass but it does work)

*you can use saran wrap with a few small holes over a bucket, to use as a humidity dome for clones.

*a lot of cannabis grow supply companies have contests and product give aways on their facebook page. (thanks midgetpawn)

*Unsulphured blackstrap molasses is a great source of carbs for sweetening and eliminates the need for cal-mag. (thanks webster10)

  ill add to the list the things you guys post or as i learn/find new things.
im sure a lot of you guys that have been growing for awhile know many more.:stoned: it'd be awesome if some of you guys would share and help compile a list.:heart: i think it would help a lot of 1st time growers who are trying to keep their setup costs down, dont have access to a grow store and dont want to order online.

I realized recently that almost every company has a facebook and a lot of those companies have contests. some of those facebook contests have great odds of winning, especially grow related companies. I already won a few hundred dollars worth of grow related shit in the last few months. Seeds are way easy to win if you don't care what you get. The other day hortilux had a contest for a 1000 watt dual arc bulb and only maybe 40 people entered. I didn't win =(. Everyone and their mom has a handheld vaporizer company and those are probably easy to win.

I think you can make a plant bug repellant for with nicotine water and some dish soap. if you smoke


--------------------
Be sure to read up on "autoflower"/ruderalis seeds before choosing them. Unless you NEED autos, you might do much better with anything else. No more hoarding ultra genetics! We need more of the best not less!

Unsulphured blackstrap molasses is a great source of carbs for sweetening and eliminates the need for cal-mag. Use at ~10-15mL (2tsp-1tbsp) / gallon every watering.

Am I the only person that doesn't increase the humidity for clones in any way?

The facebook thing would be cool when I did have an account, but seeing as how facebook usually has personal info attached to it, I wouldn't want to advertise the fact that I grew by having certain companies on my personal page.  It may not be so obvious to some, but others know.

I bet there is a ton of savings to be had, just not something I would want to risk. Wouldn't matter if you were in a legal state I guess.

Kellog's organic potting mix is a cheap alternative to FFOF if you don't have the cash to drop on FFOF.

Trash bags can be modified to make cheap pots (remember to poke a lot of very small holes in the bottom and sides for drainage and aeration)

Human urine diluted at 1 part water 16 parts urine is a cheap fertilizer that's high in nitrogen.

A cup filled with moth balls will repel animals such as rabbits, racoons and deer.

A small dish of beer will attract all of the slugs around your plants into it the dish and keep them off your plant.

30-40% on average. A lot of them get to a point where they look like they're going to die but I leave them alone and they always end up taking root and perking back up...

Although I'm not 100% sure, I am pretty damn sure it's true.

Then again
