Indoor Poppies
    #4001276 - 04/01/05 05:40 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I just wanted to make this post to address a common topic in this forum: Indoor Poppies


PLEASE stop addressing this topic like it's some great feat of unimaginable difficulty.

All you need is:

1. well drained soil (add sand and perlite to your soil and put your soil mix on top of a layer of gravel in your pots or bed)

2. Cool Temps (60's-70's)

3. Air flow and circulation

4. Lots of light. Fluros are best because they put off cool light



As far as light cycle 12/12 for vegetive growth, 20/4 for flowering growth. (the 20 light/4 dark is just my opinion, you can experiment to see what works best for you, I think the recommendation is 18/6 though, but once flowering you can leave on the light 24 hours if you want)


Ideally, make a small greenhouse out of PVC tubes and some plastic sheeting ( $15.00 worth of stuff at Lowes or Home Depot) But you don't NEED it, it'll just help to maintain your enviroment.


A few of you are waiting for my growlog on the Natasha strain. When I post it I'll post a tek of the greenhouse as well. It's really nothing too hard. It's a hell of a lot easier than growing weed indoors, that's for sure.

20/4 is excesive, most plants stop photosynthesizing after 18 hours of light. Cacti and various succulants are the only vegitative plants that can use more then 18 hours of light.

I personally found that the extra light helped at least me anyway. Thank you sir.

A fact for you. Marijuana is one plant that stops photosynthesizing after 18 hours. Just because its growing after the 18 hours doesnt mean its absorbing light. More then 18 hours of light on a pot plant will do absolutely nothing. Other then waste electricity. Lots of plants grow when the lights are out.

fact for you ^

" marijuana plants- even cuttings - do well in continuous light. In fact, the plant grows proportionately faster than in shorter cycles - 25% faster in continuous light compared to the 18 hour light cycle. "

taken from Marijuana Flower Forcing



" In a controlled experiment, cannabis plant given a continuous light cycle using MH lamps grew about one third faster than plants receiving only 18 hours per 24 hour day."


taken from The Encyclopedia of Marijuana.


and it keeps going from there, almost all findings show that 24 is better than 18 for veg. of MJ.

and the only reason for 18 hour cycle is to save on power consumption, and to some times give a cool down period for the grow room.

but the benefits of 24 hour lighting 'outweighs' the cost, literally.

Poppies are easier to grow than marijuana no matter if it's indoors or out.

No one said it was impossible, they just don't do nearly as well as when they are planted outdoors. I have talked to three people (this was on another board) that their poppies just died at the 3 to 5 week mark. They were doing great, then just died. It's not that the set up is hard, it's that they just don't do very well indoors.

A 12/12 light cycle isn't for vegetative growth, that would be if you want your plants to flower. The 20/4 would be for vegetative growth (a lot of people just stick with 18/6 or 24/0), and 24/0 definitely isn't for flowering. If they flowered, and then you put them under 24/0, they would revert back to their vegetative state.

Provided enough space and a fairly strict adherence to commonly found climactic parameters, poppies grow just fine indoors.

Link to threads of relevance would be a niceity.

ANd ya gotta remember that poppies like to be beat up a bit once they're out of the seedling stage.....don't pamper them by any means.

yeah and not only do they grow easier outdoors, your yield will be much better by being able to grow many more poppies which is a lot more practical. that is if you're doing it for the opium, otherwise indoors is alright anyhow i suppose.

I see no big reasonfor growing them indoors any ways, they take up to much space for what its wurth when you can have 500 in a small plot outside.

I think weed flowers when the day gets shorter.
While the poppy flowers when it gets longer.

indoors is a waste of time with a very stunted yield. they like real, naural and powerful sunlight. anything else will comprimise their size, quality and yield. do yerself a favor AND plant outdoors.

quote...."Does sex matter or a poppy? Also can you a splice a plant"

no sex does not matter. "splice"??? u mean cross 2 different poppy strains? if so, then yes. before the petals fall off, there are stamens with pollen. collect this like u would for marijuana. take a paint brush ore whatever, and spread it on the fresh immature crown head of the newly opened poppy flower. the seed produced in the head will be a cross.

It is a good method to germinate them indoor and the place them outdoor.
The plants will become really strong.
Indoor plants grow really poor compared to outdoor plants.

He said splice not cross!! splicing is grafting two different things together, exp. their is a tree in new york at one of the colleges a professor grafted a bunch of different fruit onto 1 tree and now its called the tree of 50 fruit or something like that. Since marijuana and poppy are both weeds i wondered about grafting to end up with a plant that produced opium and thc/cbd. but the light patterns that determine growth stage are opposite so i moved on to other things since im not a botanist.


Indoor cultivation of poppy works just fine under correct parameters. Their is a book, written in 96(i think) called hydroponic heroin. find it. it has everything you need to know from setup to harvest including how to kitchen convert O to morph and morph to H.  Also when you try to move wild species of plants indoors or domesticated species outdoors it stresses them out and they are unhappy. so i dont think indoors stunts growth, yield or anything else. the problem is you need A LOOOOOOTTTTTTTTT of pods to collect a decent amount of opium. anyway find that book and it will answer your questions...
