First Grow (pics) HELP!
    #11331844 - 10/27/09 03:48 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Can anyone tell me my shotgun fc on the floor with no holes on bottom will work??

BRF PF-tek cambo strain. Just birthed that 1/4 pinter 48 hours ago. Thought I'd share this to make sure all looks good to you guys.

2 inches perlite. 1/2 inch holes, about 10 on the big sides, 5 on the small sides and 2 on the top. I'm misting 4x a day, fanning 2x a day. The terrarium is in my closet on the floor, and i dont have a hygrometer. should humidity be good enough (theres condensation on sides).



(Before drilling holes and birthing):


Look alright?

should have waited and did them all at once, but other wise good luck

wait does your fc not have holes all over it? thats necessary. all six sides , that means the bottom and lid as well, if you dont do this you wont maintain an optimal environment.

whats the advantage of doing them all at once? theyre pretty far apart in colonization...

and no, only holes on the sides and 2 on the top. its sitting on the ground. i realize the theory behind the shotgun fc about it being elevated with holes on all sides, but theres not much i can do about this right now.

U need more in there cause they need to pollinate each other with spores or they wont fruit.









nah im messin haha.. the only reason I know for having more in at a time is they create a microclimate bringing up the humidity.. but then again dont u think it would even out?    like more cakes would bring rh up but when ur covering up more and more perlite that would lower rh.    maybe it just evens it out ???    idk im rambling

haha i was a little confused there for a sec damnskippi... :rolleyes:

but yeah, i hear about the increase in humidity with more cakes. i also thought about the other factor you mentioned. my only worry heres is that the humidity won't be right without the air flowing up from the bottom as RR preaches in his shotgun tek.

well, i'll see, this 1/4 pint is a test run.

Lol your gonna have lots of humidity issues, and contam issues if your fruiting it on the floor,

the first foot of air above the ground contains the most contaminants in the air, so get it off the floor, secondly you need to elevate your shotgun not only for better RH but also FAE air flows through those holes and brings moisture into the air as well, and if you waited to do them all at once you could dunk, roll and repeat as a group instead of individually, not really anything to do with micro climate, just that a few extra days in the jars while others finish wont hurt.


But oh well if you do a  half ass job your gonna get half assed results:shrug::bonghit:

Fuck...

I knew all this, but I thought I could get by like this. Prob is i gotta remain discreet so its gotta stay on the closet floor (ik i probably just lost some respect). I dont get it... why is all of this necessary?? Like what about a monotub or any other terrarium without holes strategically placed like a shotgun??

I think I'll just buy the god damn hygrometer (even tho im fuckin broke..). And I'll get the terrarium a couple inches off the ground and put plastic or some shit underneath it, and drill holes in the bottom...

You need holes in the bottom because as the air comes in through the bottom, through the damp perlight, it wicks water vapors (Humidity) into the FC. Also, condensation is not a sign of adequate humidity, it just means the temperature inside the FC is warmer then the outside, thus robbing the air inside your FC of water vapors. Cakes generate there own heat. A cake is typically 10 degrees warmer then the air around it. You don't have enough holes in your FC so hot stale air is staying trapped inside. FAE is your friend, and the Shotgun FC is what you need.

For doing stealth Id say go with a monotub, theyre way less maintenance and you can store them usually wherever , maybe not the floor ,

and you just fan , mine get pretty humid themselves so I  dont mist too much and youre good

damn i shoulda done that from the start...

whats so different about a monotub that it gets humid, stays humid, and doesnt need a bunch of holes and what not for fae and humidity?

I realize i probably dont sound like ive done my hw, but i honestly read for hours almost everyday on here.. i guess i just dont get it all.

A monotub is for bulk growing. You inoculate grain jars called your spawn, then once those are fully colonized, you bust it all up and spawn it to bulk substrate. Your doing PF-tek/BRF cakes, so you need a FC not a mono-tub.

Maybe look into a, "Poor Mans Pod" -Search engine*
