From start to finish.
    #4462313 - 07/28/05 01:11 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Ok guys, after looking through a few member threads about their harvests, I think I am ready to start growing. I decided I want one of those rectangular Rubber Maid things as my growing chamber (or whatever you guys like to call it.) I've been reading up on it for a while now, but I still don't think I can do it alone. Could I maybe get a list and ideas of what to use and how to start? I don't want to follow one guide exactly, instead I would like to have a lot of you advanced members to help me along and tell me what works best for YOU. Maybe I can sort of combine methods and see what would work best for ME. (I'm talking about how you start off, what materials you used, what nutrients you added, etc.) I am a bit anal so step by step procedures would be great, but like I said I don?t want to follow any guide, I would rather try something that a bunch of members suggested together.

Some problems I already face. I don't exactly have an understanding roommate, so this would need to be a sort of rogue grow. I have a fairly large room, but during parties and things people DO enter it. This can't look suspicious, and if you don't know a good way for me to keep this on the DL, maybe you can suggest a different method of growing? I have a closet that has clothes in it and 3 large garbage bags of water bottles (I was thinking maybe I could hide something under here?). Other than that my room is pretty open. I have a mini fridge, my bed, my computer, and my TV and dresser.

As for methods of growing, should I start out with those neat little bags? Jars maybe? Liquid culture? After that what should I move on to? And when I am ready to harvest how should I dry them?  I am willing to buy any supplies needed, just tell me what. Remember guys, I am a first time grower and I don't know all that much about this stuff, except what I've been reading for the last few months. Any help at all is appreciated, and won't go unnoticed. Great site, great community, thanks in advance.  :thumbup:

Edit- Nothing highly elaborate or advanced please. I don't want to have the bat cave in my bedroom  :tongue:

You could do every thing in your closet. As for every thing ells. People will see.

you would need to hide
_______________________________________________________
measuring cups&spoons, Pressure cooker, jars, Brown rice flower&verm, needles, gloves,face mask,Polly-fill or tyvek, tubs, and last but not least, you would need to keep your self under control. You will get exited with this hobby&will need to keep all of this to your self. PM me, if I can help any I will.

Mycology will open your eyes to a whole lot of things. Pf tek is the way to go, it's almost fail safe.

So should I get a heater or humidifier or any of those advanced things? Won't they make noise?

I keep 6 jars in a shoe box w/ a towel wrapped around it in a closet next to some shoes. I have a grow light on the box to raise temps. This may look a bit odd but, if its your room you should have no problem telling them to stay out of your closet. After the jars colonize you could probably take the light off and put them in a Rubbermaid bucket. But during the fruiting cycle you do need light...So I'm putting mine on a 12/12 light cycle when they are beginning to fruit. so I'm not sure what you'll do when that time comes. Id say just invoke your privacy and tell them to stay out of your closet.

The great thing about this hobby, is that it doesn't require acres of space and millions of lumens of light (like certain yummy plants we all love). Just a couple small containers and a night-lite will be sufficient if you do it right. I have been thinking of designing a system that would consist of different cardboard boxes, rigged inside (layered in plastic and fitted with my instruments)to produce the environment that is needed, and stacked (probably glued or taped together) so that any tubes or pipes between boxes are not really obvious, then I just have to worry about making sure I have places to access my chambers and instruments. I haven't even begun construction of this stealth greenhouse yet, but when I get something solid, I'll be sure to let everyone know. It seems the hardest thing to hide will be the fact that my storage boxes are plugged into the wall. The clothes in your closet should absord most of the noise caused by your CM or other instruments.

Get three rubbermaids. Two smaller ones for the TIT and one big one for the fruiting chamber. If you have them in your closet with "dirty" clothes on top, even if your closet door was open, it would not look suspicious. Just make sure the power lines to your fish tank heater and water pump (if you use one) aare covered up too.
