Cultivation / MoGrow Goes Mono.
« on: December 05, 2012, 04:10:39 PM »
Welp my 23qt pressure cooker arrived this morning i have 5lbs of WBS soaking for 24 hours i put it in the water at 3:00pm est im sooo ready. Ive got a question on this however, i have 10 brf cakes in consolidation stage and am using one of them in a SAB to inoc my grain jars. do i have to wait the full 7 days as if i were birthing to a SGFC? or can i use a cake thats been 100% for 4 days? im using doc's wbs tek and spawning using Damion5050's verm+coir tek. Any suggestions or tips on my mono tubs? maybe you can tell me where i put my holes? iircc its 2L+2H+2L+2H ? or maybe it was 2L+1H+2L+1H?

TIA for any advice.

PS I'm running 2 monotubs for my first spawn attempt. Think this will produce a bit of fruit.

Cultivation / How I made my alcohol lamp
« on: December 02, 2012, 03:02:48 AM »
Since I'm an inexperienced grower and cant contribute to that aspect ill share what I've been doing. I made my alcohol lamp using the following process. If this setup has been done before and posted somewhere forgive me. If not and you can use it I'm glad i could help.

The List.
  • Power Drill (or hammer)
  • 3/16" - 1/4" Drill Bit (or nail)
  • A nice square of Aluminum Foil
  • 2oz - 4oz Shot Glass
  • Box Cutter (razor)
  • 1/2 Pint PF Tek Jar, Lid, and Ring (Doesn't have to be a PF Tek lid it can be a new one i already had holes in all my lids)
  • Perlite
  • 90%+ Isopropyl, Denatured Alcohol, Ethanol, or Ethyl-alcohol.
  • Masking Tape
  • An old Sock (Preferably one with a hole in the toe, So glad i found something to do with these guys)
  • Pair of Scissors

Start by gathering all your materials.


Or if you don't have a drill.


Next i make the wicks, I took an old work sock that had a hole in the big toe and i cut it in to strips about 1/2" thick and the length of the foot , i only used the material of the sock you can see in the pic VV.. approx 5 - 6", the material above the heel had too much elastic banding.


Procede by drilling (nailing) a hole in the center of the lid like so...


Notice the outside of the lid is very rough ?  To accomplish this you want to drill slowly when the drill catches the last of the metal it will hesitate you want to force the hole from that point, what i did was reversed my drill and forced through with a backwards revolving bit. If your using a nail and hammer you need to wiggle the nail in the hole You want a couple nasty burrs on it. More about the burrs later.

Now we foil the lid .. take the square of foil and wrap the lid tightly with it, if your using a new jar lid, and you only have one hole, you don't need to foil the lid. I used foil to cover the 4 inoc holes that were still there.


Nice burrs.





Now that the lid and the wick are done, on to the tank.
Take 2-3 strips of masking tape, depending on the width of your roll, you want it long enough and wide enough to cover the mouth of the shot glass..


Now we take the box cutter and we "carve" the outer edge of the shot glass rim like this...


When we take it off it looks like this...

The tape is to keep perlite out of your tank when we fill the sides.

Set the shot glass aside and get out your perlite put a 1/2" - 1" in the bottom of the 1/2 pint jar. You want to make the shot glass just shy of even with the lip of the jar..




Now we can fill the space between the jar and the tank with perlite.....




Now peel the tape off the tank fill with alcohol....

Yea i used my nice frosted glass Jagermeister shot glass.

Now we wick the lid, dip the wick in the alcohol making sure its saturated, wring it between your thumb and fingers as you pull it out of the tank dip, press the wick tip through the lid from the inside out (going with the burrs) remember the burrs? Pull around 1.5" of wick through the cap, pull back slightly on the wick locking it on the burrs, put the rest of the wick in the tank, and set the lid ....


Screw the lid on and take a 3 - 4" x .5" strip of foil and wrap it around the base of the wick where it meets the burrs locking the foil in place.....


Light it up, sterilize, and get to nocin.




I wrote this up because the people on these forums are very helpful, Being new to this hobby i don't have much to offer, hopefully this can help at least 1 person making this worth the time it took to write up, and balance some book somewhere.

Cultivation / soon Soon SOon SOOn SOON
« on: November 24, 2012, 10:44:45 AM »
Hi again Fingifriends, Im getting close to time to birth my first grow, as such i went out early this morning and spent a few hours hunting down the last of my supplies just wanted to make sure its all ok.

This is the Only Perlite i could find in town.


I've read posts of people using Miracle Gro Perlite but this stuff seems really small.

Will this work just fine? or do i need to look for something else? Prolly the same size everyone else has, i prolly just cant judge size from pics.


These are the bulbs i got there basic 6500K CFL's.



As soon as this PFTEK batch fruits im going to G2G/WBS. Im assuming this stuff is ok to use? Its gonna be a while before i start WBS but this stuff was on sale for something like .89$ a lb. so i went ahead and bought 3 bags.

Cultivation / Early Pinning.
« on: November 18, 2012, 05:40:56 PM »
Hello again, I started this grow 22 days ago and have a question about a jar I've got.

[image]http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h218/maksnav/project%20zero/IMAG0115.jpg[/image]

[image]http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h218/maksnav/project%20zero/IMAG0116.jpg[/image]

im guessing this is a pin ?
for my main question.

this jar is only about 85% colonized.

[image]http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h218/maksnav/project%20zero/IMAG0117.jpg[/image]

did i do something wrong ? does this happen often ? will this cake be ok at birthing time?.. i mean its got at least 3 days to colonize 100% then 7 days to consolidate. how does this affect my time line ?
Or is this not a pin but something else?

Thx in advance for any replies.
