    Hi Guys, I am new to cannabis growing, but have to learn fast. Many years experience in hydroponics, aeroponics and tissue culture. Busy building a commercial licensed cannabis facility. I hope to get some valuable information in this forum. TIA

    Here's a quote from Dirty Ninja on NukeThreads "For cannabis, bottom threshold for optimal growth and photosynthesis is a DLI of DLI of 22 would be: ****Going lower than these numbers will still grow cannabis, however yields, bud density, potency and THC percentage may suffer. 24/0 schedule: 254.6 micromoles/m2/s-1 18/6 schedule: 381.5 micromoles/m2/s-1 12/12 schedule: 509.25 micromoles/m2/s-1 For Cannabis, the Top threshold for optimal growth and photosynthesis is a DLI of 65 moles per day. ***extremely important notice, only go up to these amounts if you are using supplemental CO2, do not go this high if you are not using supplemental CO2 as you will actually slow down photosynthesis and waste energy. 24/0 schedule: 752.31 micromoles/m2/s-1 18/6 schedule: 1128.465 micromoles/m2/s-1 12/12 schedule: 1504.6 micromoles/m2/s-1 The generally accepted guidelines for artificial light PPFD in flowering are this: in a 12/12 PPFD of at least 510 micromoles/m2/s-1 for the low end of optimal intensity PPFD of at least 800-1100 micromoles/m2/s-1 for perfect optimal lighting without additional CO2. PPFD of at least 800-1500 micromoles/m2/s-1 for perfect optimal lighting WITH additional CO2." Just some additional info. Sent from my POCOPHONE F1 using Tapatalk

    Stumbled upon this article, I do agree that it feels as if they have missed the mark. Tried to cater a bit to us home growers, but missed the mark there too. https://www.moneyweb.co.za/news/south-africa/draft-cannabis-bill-completely-misses-the-mark/ Guess time will tell what happens.

    Haha ok, when I talk about vape I am referring to vapes which take dry herb. Although nothing wrong with pens which take cartridges, but never tried that myself to be honest.

    i guess this section is pretty bleak! i am sure some of us know a place or 2 that are pro cannabis/ or at least tolerate the use of marijuana on their premise. i love going to the great outdoors for a cheeky public smoke... nothing beats a hike with mates and a couple of fatties along the way. but i guess this section would be for more, closer to home kinda vibes. who knows of any places where okes can go grab a plate to eat and also enjoy a puff at the same place? a bar/weed vibe even... or just a venue that peeps can go and chill, and not feel nervous to spark up. Ill start with 2 places iv heard of. first is Sundowners in alberton. - bless their souls, i believe the place has shut down. another one i have heard of is Gerda's Kitchen at Injati. maybe i add a separate topic for the place. hows about a show of secret joints where we can meet up and be ourselves? make a new topic for each Venue and give the supporters some support too!

    Welcome! Exciting times! Best you get a grow of your own going ASAP too then. Commercial growing vs home growing will differ a bit, so keep that in mind when reading the info available on the forum. If you have any questions you cannot find answers to on the forum, start a new thread and I am sure the members will be able to assist.

    Why is she so flat bro? Looks like Yokozuna sat on her.

    Lmao no I'm serious bro... This was my Inzane in the Membrane tree that got waaaaaaay out of hand for my space. There were just too many side branches and she started growing staggered nodes really young, so it messed up my training.. I took 6 clones, did a whole bunch of defoliation, and asked my mate to stick her in the ground outside to see what happens. Its a true Bush... It had some crazy growth and an insane amount of side branches. He stuck it in the ground and tied all the branches down in the hopes of creating new mains. Sent from my POCOPHONE F1 using Tapatalk

    @Vee I believe he is referring to Ampelomyces quisqualis, it is a fungus that chows mildew. https://www.groworganic.co.za/product/ampelomyces-quisqualis/ Alternatively, there is a product called Hydroliq Grow that says it works on mildew and is vegan/organ. Again I am not sure how effective it is. https://hydroponic.co.za/hydroponics/hydroliq-grow/?gclid=CjwKCAjw5Kv7BRBSEiwAXGDElW8MrnIc1WUUxEjJfK7NpmqBnTFZtGRGXfcILr-sC_zhQx5_zCMssBoCE4AQAvD_BwE

    Another little update: The 2 in the smaller pot have been inside the tent under 12/12 for the past 5 days as I was away so not much growth on those 2 but the 1 outside has grown substantially in the past few days! Let's hope they show some pistols soon๐Ÿ˜

    @PapaSpliff overwatering plants do cause leaves to droop, but usually you can feel the stems (of the leaf) are firm and full of water. With underwatering the leaves will also droop, but stems will be dried out and leaves without much moisture. Glad she is doing better, happy growing, @CreX ftw ekse ๐Ÿค™

    AQSF takes a while to get working as its spores. Something like Sulphur will work far quicker. So you'd need to access the situation and use products accordingly.

    Much better dude. Don't be afraid to scratch the top 1inch of soil... Few roots grow there, so it's a good test to scratch the surface and see how moist your medium is... If the entire top inch is dry, you can feel confident that adding water/feed now is a good idea

    Looks very white.. so nope, wait for the sugar leaves to turn amber 100%, they turn first. When you see some color on the calyx's, I wait for 50% white / 50% amber before I cut. Patience ๐Ÿ˜

    Hey guys. I started this cookies-bagseed, outdoor grow in potting soil in July. Used nitrosoil and seagro during veg. Haven't been using nutes for the past couple of weeks since they finished. Over the past couple of days I've noticed that the big fan leaves and the bottom sets of leaves on my plant began drooping. But this morning the leaves look really depressing... (picture below) Please help me identify the problem and possibly solutions...

    i seem to always have issues with PM in my garden. so i came accross this and decided to take a look at what ol googs has to say. Seems its quite legit, but caution is advised about mixing ACV and H202 together. quite a few recipes call for apple cider vinegar to be sprayed , followed by a H202 spray, repeated every few days until the PM is gone. apparently the order of the sprays is not the issue, you can go ACV first or H202 first, the important info is that you do not mix them together in the same bottle as it forms a weaker disinfectant solution, as well as forming Peracetic Acid which is undesirable apparently. very cool and something i would give a try

    @CreX thanks so much for that! Your feedback is very insightful and will go a long way in helping me with this dilemma ๐Ÿ˜Ž @PsyCLown the infestation isn't bad and the pyrol spray has helped due to the neem oil which I read up neutralizes the spores but I am getting ready for a potential return in which case I will use your and @CreX's suggestion and hit it with the AQSF. Thank you kindly gromies!

    Coolest, I did not mean any offense to you. The copper soap works very well for plants not in flower... And should be enough of a prevention to keep that grow happy in flower with out additional sprays. But AQSF should be fine in flower. Again ideally you don't want to spray anything on the ladies in flower ever... But when shit hits the fan you gotta do the things to save the cropโœŒ๏ธ

    Im with @Ill_Evan and @PsyCLown on the dry herb vaporizer. New users can adjust temperatures to avoid getting super baked. A person very dear to me has Glaucoma, started on the dry herb vape about a year ago , sets temps aroumd 180 to 190 these days, seems like a sweetspot. Cant remember the exact temps for what effects, worth a search online when starting. They are doing well and only uses the dry herb vape as treatment. About edibles, when using rosin between 60% - 90% thc, assuming the calculations are done correct - 1mg = microdosing, 10mg = new users that want to feel euphoria, 30mg = more experienced users to feel euphoria / also treating various medical conditions. Over 30mg can get a bit gutwrenching for new users, where 100mg and 150mg is seriously high flying. There are online edible calculators that will help calculate doses "gummy dose calculator". Serious medical conditions can require the latter high doses, where cbd can be used to counteract the strong high. I would advise new users to get some cbd as a go too if they feel overconsumed, also lemon rinds with lemonjuice, a pinch of salt mixed in water will help a lot. Dont quote me on all the above, do the research, i just jotted down what i could remember, some facts might not ne 100% anymore.

    I know the 420 lounge in Sandton used to be the place to be. Not sure if they still operating now.

    I'm skeptical on those carts. There aren't really many legit ones and the ones I've seen in SA are none branded and like 90% THC concentrate. If we're talking about consuming too much, definitely use the vape and cart ๐Ÿคฃ You'll never go back. ..well maybe sometimes because it's not always available ๐Ÿ˜† the only time I don't dry herb vape is when I go out to friends because hey don't own any and still bong ๐Ÿคฏ

    @Vee check out the link below. There are a few options listed to treat WPM, i have never had WPM so i can't say how effective they are. https://www.growweedeasy.com/cannabis-plant-problems/white-powdery-mildew They also list a few causes so you can try sort out your enviroment to prevent it.

    Shot for the post @CoolJ. Seems like household lights can be very usefull to grow. This post just validates my floodlight experience. Migro obviously used proper equipment to get measurments. But my readings with my free app seems like it is inline with migro readings.

    I really stopped buying weed because I know about what you mentioned, that's why it tastes so bad and burns etc. I'm training these plants so I'd hardly consider growing according to my preference "forcing". I am looking for all possibilities to make an informed decision which I am sure is ok to do. Thanks for the heads up on that product, I'll check it out and see what the ingredients are. Thanks a million

    Had an issue as well last order. Package was dispatched early but by late afternoon nothing arrived. So I called them and apparently the package was packed into the back of the van and thats why it wasnt delivered. Ended up getting the package later that day..

    Hey, No need to worry about posting this here, we're happy to be transparent about this. Fast Ways has seemingly lost 3 of our parcels this year, out of the thousands that's been sent, it's not a common occurrence, but never excusable. And the worst part is that our attempts to get it resolved are similar to yours. The delay in email response is likely due to us having to reach out for updates from Fast Ways and then waiting for a response on their end. I wish we had control over the shipping, but once it's in Fast Ways hands, we really have no control over anything and we rely on them to do their job (which unfortunately they seem to be unable to do at times). We've had issues with both Courier Guy and Fast Ways, in fact we've had issues with every courier we've tried. There really seems to be no ideal solution to the problem. Let me assure you though, that you will not lose your money in this. We typically work with Fast Ways to reimburse the customers (it should be them doing it, as it's their service that is failing us both). As Prom said, if they arrived - they had the package at some point. Some idiots there either just lost it. I'll try and fast-track this for you with the team. But I am aware of this order issue, as I have seen the team going back and forth with Fast Ways trying to find out where the package is and how to proceed. Someone may have actually already contacted you - but I'll follow up now and drop you a private message with what I figure out. Apologies for this, trust me - I'm as annoyed with their service as you are.

    Update time. My tomatoes. As you can see they're blooming. They were my test subjects for my auto run. Feeding all Biobizz nutes. My succulents. They have grown a lot. Need advice as to whether I should repot them. My big leave Spekkie. Had a fight with caterpillars and aphids but Bioneem and Pyrol solved that. My Lavender - severely underfed here in the beginning. The brown flowers are growing again and I messed up with the chillis. Too cold I think.

    Lekker garden with a lovely view. Its your legal right to grow cannabis in your balcony. Give your wife an ultimatum : "Following the Western Cape High Court Judgement handed down in March 2017 and the Constitutional Court validation of that ruling in September 2018, Cannabis has been decriminalised in South Africa. This is however not the same as legalisation, as the trade and sale of the plant remains illegal.". This means cultivation, possession and use in your home is legal for your private use. Have a meeting with her, start negotiating for 5 plants and 10 seedlings. It worked for me in the past. Good luck.
