I'm going to take my chances that the relative humidity is high enough,...

My kratom plants reside beneath my staghorn ferns now, so I hope that after 4 days of 'hardening off', the Florida humidity is high 20190730_010420.jpg enough to take off their plastic shipping sleeves. I'm worried that the plastic is touching the leaves and causing leaf damage. Any advice about this is appreciated. Thank you. Petey.20190730_000543.jpg 20190730_000608.jpg

Leaf emergence and separation

High humidity helps the new leaves split easily and nicely. When dry, they partially stick together, and cause it to bend over or look very serious.

Curious about strains

So I’ve done quite a bit of research online or at least thought I did until I joined a couple groups. So I’m curious about strains I read it was determined by the veins of the leaves origanally and that horn had a specific leaf with a kinda horn on it. Then I read the same plant can have different color veins. In the groups they say it’s all about the way it’s dried or fermented or cured. Can someone shed a little more light on this for me.

Transferring Rooting Cuttings to Soil

Some soil transfer pics. Soil is lowest quality big box store potting mix, perlite, and some dried+lovingly hand crumbled horse... piles. Plastic cups are 3.8 inches diameter on the open side. Have them double cupped, the inner cup is punctured 4x 0.125-0.25in holes for drainage. The product of this process may need to go back in a humidity dome for a little while. I broke off a small number of roots.

While the peat pods worked, it seems like they stopped the roots from emerging and may have hampered full growth. The poly fabric wrapping was impossible to remove by pulling, so i cut it away before transfer. I also crumbled off most of the peat pod, (coir?) to expose the roots more. It seems like perlite or a mixture of peat and perlite without the pod fabric would work best.

Process of Rooting Mitragyna Part 1

Part 2 will include much more pictures, thorough description, and hopefully a video of me processing a large number of cuttings. All the plants pictured will be moved to allow for further Mitragyna experiments...

My process was as follows: Cuttings were removed from peat pods. There was a small amount of black on the cut end, so I decided to recut the ends.

I heated a scalpel to red hot with a jet lighter and cut a diagonal end. Using the scalpel, i scraped 20-60% of the circumference of the cut end up to 1-1.5cm.

I wet the cutting end with a small spray bottle, then dipped and rolled the cutting end in rooting powder hormone 0.1% IBA. The coating was dense and essentially entirely white, no exposed green. I wet the powder with another small spritz, then the cutting was replaced into the peat pod with some perlite.

The picture of the roots below is approximately 10 days after scrape+hormone application in the humidity box. Cut ~10 July, Recut+hormone 13 July, rooted as picture 23 July

Rooting Cuttings

I am sure everyone has their preferred rooting medium, what's yours? What have you found to be most successful or not at all? Have you had success rooting outdoors, or under what color light? I am making up a little tray with materials we had and will be watering with reverse osmosis filtered water. Peat pods, perlite, peat moss and perlite, peat moss, coco coir and perlite, and coco coir. We has novermiculite or castings on hand at the moment..

LIGHT (LED primarily)
Found this nice but complicated guide to lighting: https://www.reddit.com/r/HandsOnComplexity/comments/17nxhd/sags_plant_lighting_guide_linked_together/

I was more concerned with hobby-grow, small scale indoor.

HorticultureLightingGroup.com
HLG 65 V2 4000k = 100$ (available on Amazon. Veg 2x2, flower 2x1)
HLG 100 V2 400k = 150$ (Amazon) (Veg 3x3, flower 2x2)
HLG 135 Quantum Board Kit = 160$ if you have electronics knowledge and confidence, Amazon
HLG 260 QB Kit = xxx$?
HLG 300 V2 = 509$

Some people say Viparspectra is low quality, but they are popular:
300W(130W actual draw) = 80$
450W(200W) = 120$
600W(260W) = 160$
1200W(520W) = 340$

From the guide:
KingBrite and Meijiu are vendors on Alibaba of similar high efficiency LED lights
See RapidLED.com, SpectrumKingLED.com, Fluence.science, NexLight.com, ChilLEDgrowlights.com, TimberGrowLights.com

Currently being tested:
GardenSafe TakeRoot rooting hormone powder, 0.1% IBA = 2oz/5$
MiracleGro All Purpose Plant Food, 24-8-16 = 5lb/10$
Lilly Miller Alaska Fish Fert, 5-1-1 = 1quart/10$, 1gal/25$
Dyna-Gro Neem oil 100% = 8oz/10$
dWee 1/3/5/7/10gal 5ct = 13$
TopHort 24x24x48 = 53$
HLG 65 V2 4000k = 100$ (available on Amazon. Veg 2x2, flower 2x1)

There are a number of very good and very bad lights for relatively little money and extraordinary amounts of money. Do your research wisely. I am very happy with the HLG 65, but I almost wish I got their HLG 100 and a 3ft/9sq ft tent. I am almost certain I will buy more of their lights in the future without considering any other option because I am so pleased.

Most of the tents are a mylar reflective material with nylon canvas backing. Some of the internal frames are plastic, the metal frames are supposedly more sturdy. Otherwise, most of the tents appear the same. I opted for a tent with a window instead of one without a window for about 5 dollars more. I mildly wish I had not gotten the window. Perhaps when my plants are taller I will be thankful! 🙂

I am doing and planning lots of experiments to learn more about the cultivation of this plant. I have a number of cuttings on the way and will try to experiment with seed germination in about a month. Always on the lookout for cheap supplies. Please let me know of anything you use, or would suggest to use. I am definitely interested in seeds and seed germination because it is so shrouded in mystery and failure. It is also the best way to increase genetic variation and counteract the issues with long term cloning. Mutants can be cool!

Kratom recipes and methods

I would love to hear from others on their methods of Kratom preparation and or recipes if that's what you want to call it. Along with how much, what strain you you prefer ..... you know neat things like that.

Right now my method is rather simple. I use 6 1/2 grams of maeng da and usually soak it in a mixture of lemon juice and water for about 20 minutes and then just drink the grit.
