Indoor Growing

Post  admin on Mon Jan 04, 2010 11:35 pm

Is there any interest in indoor gardening that would require a separate category? I have taken some interest in the topic but do other members like this?

Oh Cannabis?...Nope I have had thoughts of growing hops indoors and "training" them to grow in circles as apposed to straight up.

Haha, I know. I was just messing with you. I don't know if that would work out or not. The bines (not a typo) get pretty tall. 18ft+ on the farms in Yakima.

Possibly...

I would think if you coiled the bines around a large tomato cage with a light in the center it would work fine... overlapping eventually, of course. I defer to Bob on this subject...my thumbs are green from plant destruction, not plant growth.

Speaking of cannabis, I wonder if you could use that to flavor beer? Then again, getting your hands on 1 to 2 ounces of pot is going to cost a lot more than hops. But imagine the brew.

I think the other main issue is that hops need a hard freeze cycle to help the plant flower, the main problem with that is you cant really stick a large coil of plants in your freezer.

freeze cycle when?

Freeze cycle when?

When dormant?


If so...then maybe all you would need to freeze is the pot/root system, and if thats the case...stick pot outside for a couple weeks.

I've had Hemp Ale's before, and they were really good... and of course they were from California. Not sure exactly if they used the hemp flowers, or somehow distilled hemp stalks as part of the mash though.

There are major differences between hops and hemp. Hops grow from a rhizome, hemp does not. Hemp plants will die in the cold where a hop rhizome will be just fine underground for the winter freeze.
