  1. CO2 Generator DIY from scratch Hello everybody. I am quite new to this comunity and i gotta admit is lovely here and welcoming, so i decided to start doing my part right away. I want to represent my design of CO2 generator. I have been using two types of CO2 generators and i gonna discus both of them. Would try to keep the post clean and simple so it be understandable by everybody. This two methods are nothing new in cannabis growers nor in the fishkeepers Alright the two methods are: 1. Baking powder combined with citric acid lime juice and water This method is chip to do the reaction is fast and more CO2 is released at the time but shortlasting. Perfect for small growing rooms 2. Yeast combined with sugar water and baking powder Ths method is long lasting and it can also be setup on how the reaction should go. It means more yiest more powerfull reaction and more CO2 at the time or more sugar for long lastiong reaction Will go through all the recipes now and how to do the reaction chamber as i call it. The Reaction Chamber Bassily the reaction chamber in both of the generators are the same only the ingridiens are different. Every body can improvise and make their own type of design for generator but at he end you wil edn up close to this look : This two generators are bassicly the same thing but in the one made of glass bottle is with two after chambers so i can chose where the co2 will go. Ok now i will describe the acctual generator : 1.Reaction Chamber 2.Tubing 3.After chamber 4.Ingrediens for the reaction wehre CO2 is the product 5.CO2 6.H2O 7.CO2 What basicly the after chamber is you may ask, that is just so you can see if the reaction is stil going and if there is yet CO2 to be produced. The two types of recipes for CO2 reaction 1. The baking powder reaction is made with 5 tablespoons of baking powder on 5 table spoons with powerfull acid or lime and 1dl of water. ( recipe may vary if you already have you own recipe please share) 2. The yiest reaction is made: Put 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of yeast into the bottle with about a cup of warm water (bread yeast is fine). Some people have theorized that champaign or wine yeast should last longer (due to its ability to tolerate the alcohol generated from the brewing process), but recent tests reported on the net have not indicated any difference. Shake to mix the yeast well. Add water to bring the solution up to 3/4 of the bottle. Add 1 to 2 cups of sugar and shake well. The amount of yeast and sugar will determine the rate and duration of CO2 generation. More yeast will result in stronger CO2 production, but will exhaust the sugar quicker. Using 1/4 teaspoon of yeast and 2 cups of sugar will result in CO2 production for about 4 to 5 weeks. In areas with soft water, some people recommend adding a teaspoon of baking soda to buffer the water and extend the life of the solution (prevent the acid formed by the brewing action from destroying the yeast prematurely). This recipe is copy-pasted from http://www.cichlid-f...les/diy_co2.php. And because is for fishtanks you would want to make the reaction a litle bit more powerfull with adding more yiest because the CO2 in the growing room is lost easily during the fans that are sucking the air out and the fans inside:) Hope i got it all clear and hope i did not spread everywhere i was trying to keep my thought in one line If you have any questions, comments or arguments they are more then welcome. Peace
  2. Identifying seeds by looking at them Hi guys i am going to be discussing 2 theories about identifying cannabis seeds just by looking at it. First theory goes that depending on the size of the seed we could determine if the seeds was indica or sativa plant. I have come up with this theory on many forums but i am not quite sure i also found it here. So how could be size of the seed help us? There was mainly 2 theories: first one was that small seeds are indica and big fat ones sativa, the other theory goes the other way and says that big fat ones are indica and small ones are sativa. But i think the size of the seed is only determined by the mother seed plant. So if the mother have small calyxes and get pollinated by whatever the seeds are going to be small. I would really like your opinion on this one. The second theory that we are going to talk about is something more interesting and that is: determine sex by just looking the seed. This got me little more interested in because there was one picture i stumbled upon the net, saying that we could determine sex of the plants by just looking it and paying close attention on the bottom to that part where the seed was attached to the plant. So at the bottom of the female seed there should be volcano like depression, On the male seed there should be no depression but the volcano like depression would be filed or not perfectly round. This picture i found on one blog saying that is from the book: 1980s Marijuana Chemistry - Genetics, Processing, & Potency And the thing that made me want to try it even more is this youtube video https://www(dot)youtube.com/watch?v=W8pjptNTff8 It is definitely new thing to me compared to the first theory that i have heard before. I have never came across this method of identifying sex of plant by looking at the seed. I always thought that you can not determine the sex till it flowers but this i have to try and next grow op i will definitely take photo of the seed and then the plant in different stages. I would really like to know your opinion on this guys and if somebody have try this method before or heard of it i would really like to know where this picture came from because i had hard time finding the book that was mentioned. I hope you would enjoy the post and check your seeds next time before you pot
  3. yes i know to many theories gets the brain crazy. But i was just thinking what if is possible. Just for scientific sake. What if the plant leave a print on the seed so we can recognize. It is to many what if's but i will give it a try next time i plant some seeds :)
  4. Was looking recently about induction lamps and plasmalights and i noticed that where ever they are presented they are presented in the best way above any other lamp or technology but there were some growers on other forums that like it for vegging but still keep the HPS for flowering. There is few types of induction lamps which i did not pay attention to because it was still new to me but will try to close all my tabs and make some research about it. Most interesting fact i heard about this lamps is that they don't give as much heat as other lamps . compared to flourescence they give lower heat and could be brought closer to plants. compared to HPS they give out more photopic lumens(Plm) and are more cooler. Also they tend to keep there lumens stable up till 70000 hours of use because they dont have any electrodes and are type of wireless lamps http://www.inductionlamps.com/pages/All-About-Induction.html there is some info on this lights here pretty eager to try it and if there is anyone who had already seen a grow op with nductive lights would be very interested in hearing of how that went
  5. how did this turned out?
  6. What should be the minimal requirement for the pots using this method?
  7. Wow is that purple black also growing wild in Ukraine? There is much more resin on it compared to the green ones Do you have more information on this strain?
  8. Check Out this link may also help you: Is always better with any CO2 than no peace
  9. try both methods and decide which one you like better and which one suit your needs. if you decide on yiest method then just remember more yiest more co2 but short lasting thx for your time for reading the post:)

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
