    FDM ESB is as close as to the original as it comes, and trust me, I've been there there are many people out there using my good friends name to sell "product" on instawank and other such like vanity media and I really do wish a pox upon each and all of them, no names required because they still read these forums and they know exactly who they are and whom I'm referring to All profit from sales of FDM ESB sold here at Uk420 will be paid back to its original creator, my mentor and one of my best friends, without whose input and guidance this site would have long since ceased to exist, seems only fair and i hope those of you who are able to to, can purchase a pack and see what you've been missing, get proper spangled and hopefully keep a copy and share amongst yourselves and the wider community long into the future

    DiscoBiscuit

    My Disco Biscuit flowers from that big plant are now dry, I was expecting a good yield but I nearly fell over when I looked at the scales, I had to zero them again and double check. Before I weighed it all the buds were removed from the branches and given a final manicure and then into the 2 jars ready for curing. It really doesn’t look like 5.6oz but the scales are accurate, the buds are rock hard and very dense. 154g of Disco B Dried & Jarred A Little Pot of Frosty Calyx

    Mr Nice seeds

    Ive only got a small space to work with and like to run a couple of different strains so generally crack 6 of each strain for each new seed run. There were slightly different pheno’s, but not an unusual amount, also, I like differences because it gives you the grower more choice. sampling from 6 seeds at a time will always narrow your choice, so i take cuts from all and go from there and i’m always happy with what I end up with if i’m not another 6 gets done.. they were all good producers, ace tone, petrol, sweet lime? on the nose, one of those happy smiley strains that made me unfaze-able and social I really miss it actually..

    Some more animal biscuit f2s, some great variation going down with these beans with them all being frosty and solid af. going to be fun figuring out which one to keep. Got a couple early lower yielding plants which look nice but the later flowering ones I think are going to be the ones.

    Private Clinics/Prescriptions

    I can only say I found the process simple. Despite an initial hiccup in delivery, it has been smooth sailing ever since. I get 60 grams per month, more if I want. £5 per gram and a £30 fee, delivered to my door. I can also select different strains, although I am very pleased with the MVA20/4 I'm on now. This price structure is way better than anything I've found on the illicit market. And the quality is far better than most (all, barring one private grower); but more importantly, its consistent ~ exactly the same batch after batch, so far. This is VERY important to me, as this particular strain is so effective in handling both my spinal issues and my Parkinson's symptoms. Yes, I'd much rather grow my own as I used to. But I can't, not any more. So for me it's either the street, or a prescription. That's quite a tough call, as I can get absolutely superb product from the grower mentioned above. But that involves travel (yet more cost) and the issue of legality (anxiety is a Parkinson's symptom, so legality has raised importance). In the end it's a no-brainer, consistent quality weed at best prices, with a legal permit ~ or continue on the wild side with no control over strain or quality or price or delivery or security? In terms of Normalisation, prescription weed is good too. It opens the door to so many conversations otherwise difficult to have. And no more hiding things away either. I used to have to be careful round the house ... kids, school, nosey neighbours etc etc. Now the postie hands it to my grandkids who come bearing it to me, saying "Your special medicine is here Grampa!" Any neighbours or teachers get nosey, I just wave my prescription. So far, prescription weed has been a totally good thing for me.

    Those pictures were from the second batch of esb seeds I made ie were original seeds gifted to members togs or bomshiva I think at the first hemp fair wembley. I don't remember how b420 as I knew him or Baudelaire as he is now known, came by the line, I may well have given him some or he picked them up in an auction, I sent out thousands world wide, and do not remember to who, for sure never sold one esb seed. I used to talk to b420 about cannabis breeding in the early days of the internet, I respect his integrity, he took what I made, inbred, selected and stabilised the esb line, I have not grown/smoked his version, but have talked to people who have grown both my original and his and been told the original essence is preserved, I respect that.

  13. I used to frequent a couple of sea fishing forums back in the day but they've both pretty much moved onto facebook now. A lot of people slag insta off but it does have it's uses for us growers . Though it doesn't have even a tenth of the grow knowledge available on here if you're willing to put the time and energy in to reading diaries and threads. I've tried a few weed forums over the years but always use uk420. I just try and avoid the political threads

    BIG thank you

    I'm brand new here, this is pretty much my first proper post so I hope this is OK. 2020 was a bad year for a lot of us, I was finally planning my first grow to supply myself and help a family member with cancer. Well covid finished the job before the cancer could and most of my family were also infected visiting in the hospital. I'm carrying on though because I've started now and to be honest I'm getting a lot out of the process, the learning (a lot of it from lurking here) and the plants themselves - it's horticultural therapy y'know After doing a mind-bending amount of research on seeds last year I went for UGORG and I'm so glad I did. Had a bit of a problem with my order but UGORG sorted everything out and I ended up some free No Names too. I have UGORG#1 (F2) and PremierSweet for my first run and Blues, DiscoBiscuits and Footloose planned for my next. @VRG thanks again, you have given me a proper boost when I was down and if everyone in business behaved a bit more like this then the world would be a better place.

    6 of the best? Under LEDs

    Sweet Seeds Update to around about the 12th February 2021 I hope you are all keeping well. As we all know it's been a little cold outside, but it's been nice'n cosy and very sunny in the indoor garden Lights at around 110-130W Air temp around 25C RH around 40-75% Roots As I kinda mentioned in the previous update, there appears to have been an incident which occurred when I was topping on or 2 of the Mohan Ram plants. I was taking another good look at the plants the other day, when I noticed this It appears to me that I may ha FIMed this plant by mistake when topping her. Here's the other Mohan Ram which has been topped again These are the Red Hot Cookies When went to check the girls in the Homebox tent about 4 days ago, I was greeted by some leaf damage which had appeared on one of the Mohan Ram plants(no photo), that was a definite signal to me that something needed to change. Yes I have been pushing the light level a little further each day, but I believe it was probably down to the coco becoming too dry in between daily waterings. So that evening I potted up all of the plants in group 1, the 3 MR and the 2 RHC that came up on time potted into 3l air pruning pots, and the RHC runt went into a 2l. I haven't tried these pots before but I have seen them used on here by a member who disappeared without a trace they're designed to reduce root circling and to air prune the roots in the same way that airpots work. I pre filled each pot with a couple of handfuls of coco and used a spare pot the same size that the plants were currently in and gently worked the pot into the coco in each of the new larger pots, the holes were then sprinkled with some TNC Bactor s13 and Azos beneficial microbes. before placing the root balls into each hole. Root shots RHC runt(after and before) Before potting up About to pot up After giving each a few taps around the pots to get the coco to settle around the rootball and then topped up each pot to the rim and watered in, making sure the coco was completely drenched and allowed to drain properly. This time instead of using KickStart I opted to begin feeding with grown up food, it's still Intense Nutrients, but it's 60/40 A and B(not necessarily ideal but it's what I've got). EC still just 1.0 after adding MagCal to 0.4 pH Unknown as my Essentials pH pen started giving an unexpected reading when I was checking before adjusting, it was showing 8.5 which I thought was strange that the 60/40 would raise the pH of my tap water when the KickStart previously had caused it to fall to 6.5 So I rinsed the pH pen under the tap(EC 0.0) and placed in a jug of clean fresh water, I forgot what reading it gave but it was strange enough for me to get out the pH7 buffering solution so I could calibrate it. Unfortunately the pen just gave an error reading while trying to calibrate to the buffering solution. So a new pH pen is on order from the Bald guy I did add a few drops(the same amount that I used with KickStart) of Down'n Dirty to reduce the pH a little, fingers crossed that I didn't overdo it Heres some photos inside the tent Before After the potting up The Red Hot Cookies runt Now that they are in larger pots things are starting to get a bit tight in the Homebox tent, so it is time for group 1 to be re-homed in the Nursery/veg drobe. The setup in the Nursery Drobe is: a large heat mat on the floor controlled with an Inkbird heat controller which also has the tube heater(currently a 5' but I need to swap it for a 3') plugged into it via a 3 way adapter. Lighting is a Par+275 dimmable LED again from Diyleduk Extraction is via a section of 6" combi ducting with some carbon fibre cooker hood material(acting as a light baffle) inside as the ducting which leads to my main Bloom-room, which has an 8" AC Infinity Cloudline extractor fan and matching CarboAir 60. I'll include some photos of them in their new space next time In the Homebox Group 2 Watering as and when required at EC 1.0 ph 5.9 still on the KickStart. Nothing much to report except excellent growth from all of this lot, the 2 Sweet Tai will need to be potted up soon though. Look how squeezed in they were when sharing the Homebox tent with group 1 They're gonna be happy with the extra space to spread out a bit with their group 1 sisters moving out into their own room Sometimes when looking at the plants in group 2(Sweet Tai, SAD s1, Sweet Zkittlez), it looks like they need more Magnesium(lack of colour between some of the leaf veins). So I'm going to start rotating daily between foliar feeding with seaweed solution 2ml/l, and Epsom Salts 1/2 teaspoon/l for their daily lights off shower. Of course they could just be a little hungry so on the next feed I'll probably move them onto the 60/40 as well and I might even increase the feed strength to EC 1.2 The Sweet Tai which are in the smaller black pots will need potted up quite soon so that's likely to happen either tonight or tomorrow, so look forward to seeing how they get on along with having more space for root development. I reckon I'll pop them into the smaller 2l pots the same size as the RHC runt went into rather than the 3l ones, I don't want them getting out of hand. It'll probably be a few more days before the SAD s1 and Sweet Zkittlez need potted up, I'll probably use the 3l pots for them the same as those in group 1. I think that just about covers everything I hope this update makes sense Thanks for looking. Stay high/happy and may your gardens grow well. Atb

    Cheers @KC. Autos are definitely worth a go mate, especially in the winter. Lights on 24/7 ,so much easier to keep temps stable. I have read also that with LED, temps need to be around 28/30 degrees although I am well happy with how all the plants are performing at 25 degrees. If I added more heat it would just negate one of my main reasons for making the switch to LED.... less electricity use. Hope you get on great with your Jack 47. I have not been disappointed with any Sweet Seeds plants I have grown so far. ATB N1 @btk1977 looking forward to trying the auto version even more now Cheers @jadenugs, yes indeed mate the bud pics are with the Sigma 105mm from winnings last time round. It really is a fantastic value for money macro lens. I used to use a 40mm nikon macro but you need to get really close to the subject. Really enjoying the learning curve of the 105mm. Get you missus to get it back on the xmas list for this year. I chose the Sigma because tokenroll uses it. Couple of Killer Kush pics from this morning

    Oldtimers C3(f) x ugorg premier sweet (m) this was mum and this was dad Was from a grow over 3 years ago, had to pack up after that as I was living in a camper van for over a year. So started growing again last year and have grown quite a few crosses I made with that male and they all turn into lovely plants. sometimes the premier sweet sits in the background and doesn’t come through in the flavour and other times it really comes through, can lead to some very nice flavours. the c3 from oldtimer is a nice plant that gives out lime phenos and a nice cerebral hit, might be my favourite out of all oldtimers stuff, think it’s certainly the tastiest if you like lime flavours. The premier sweet is also a tasty plant which gives out nice flavour so putting them together I had a feeling might work well. c3x premier sweet Canopy shot of the tent with all the different crosses, psychosister, Honeybadger, blues and goji og crosses with the premier sweet male. Also there’s a blues x Honeybadger cross back right. Picture taken on chop day from winter garage grow with a couple of temperature fuck ups and flushed a few days to long. Also a gap in the canopy where I had taken a Honeybadger x Honeybadger early as had run out of smoke. The c3 x premier sweet front right was the best yielding and has an amazing flavour, really fresh sweet lime flavour and think anyone growing it is really going to be happy with it. I’m actually quite proud of this cross and thanks has to go to vrg and oldtimer for these great genetics. i sent around 150 seeds in and left myself about 40, thinking of subbing to buy a pack back I like it that much. it only doubled in height and chopped at 9 weeks.

    6 of the best? Under LEDs

    Thanks again for the kind words that help to spur me on, I do sometimes require a wee kick up the arse to get me moving Sweet Seeds Update to 6th Feb 2021 Temps and RH: You can see the heat rise and humidity drop on the 5th when I turned the lights up. Lights: 110W - 135W combined(135W might be just a little bit too much without increasing airflow and humidity) It seems only natural to begin with... Group 1(4 weeks since soaking) The 2 Mohan Ram & 3 Red Hot Cookies were topped on Monday(a day or 2 after the previous update). The MR at node 5(depending where you start counting) and RHC at node 3(likewise on node counting) as the RHC were definitely gaining height on the MR(photos below). Watering/feeding every 2-3 days, water before: EC 0.0 pH 7.5 water plus feed: EC 0.8 pH 6.5 Final pH down to 5.8 Intense Nutrients: MagCal to EC 0.4 Foundation 1.5ml/l KickStart to EC 0.8 Down'n Dirty to 5.8 from 6.5 Group 2(2weeks behind the others) they are in slightly larger pots so I'm not watering them as often as I am with group 1. One BigFoot, Sweet Tai x2, SAD s1 x 3, and Sweet Zkittlez x 3, were all given a drink last weekend and again on Friday. I'm have been giving them the same strength of feed as group 1, with an EC 0.8 and pH 5.8 I started checking the runoff from group 1 a few days ago and was pleased to see that the EC had been falling from 0.8 to 0.6 consistently over a couple of watering/feeds So I have increased the EC going in up to 1.0 aiming for the pH to be as close to 5.8 as I can without getting my knickers in a twist. Anyway with the technical stuff out of the way it's... Time me for some photos A shot of Group 1(Mohan Ram and Red Hot Cookies), you can see the humidity device on the right hand side of the photo The brownish paper is damp kitchen roll with Cinnamon powder to help with humidity levels and to deter the likes of fungus gnats etc. Next up is... Two of the recently topped Mohan Ram in ultra close-up Hopefully they'll bush up nicely now encouraging growth from the lower shoots. Up next we have... The Red Hot Cookies runt. From a couple of days before And after Not it totally sure what I'm gonna do with her as development has been quite slow up until now, which I'm fairly sure is partly related to the tiny pot she's in atm. As you can see I've used another "Bends" clip on the Red Hot Cookies runt that didn't show herself until group 2 had arrived on the scene(2 weeks later than her sisters). She took a bit of a stretch to try to get to unobstructed light when she was almost being hidden amongst the foliage of those in (group 2), again this bend should increase the strength of the main stem as well as keeping her from getting too tall. I might or I might not top her I haven't settled on a decision yet I may just continue using the "bends" training clips to see what I can do with her, alternatively I may just let her grow kinda naturally to see her do her own thing (I'll have a think about it). Next up it's the... 2 x Red Hot Cookies in close-up As you might be able to tell from the photos, all of the toppings were done just using my own fair hands Moving on next to... Group 2(which are 2 weeks behind group 1) I'm still just watering/feeding them every few days when the become a bit lighter than a fully hydrated pot, allowing the roots to search throughout the pots and fill up with lots of nice fresh white roots I'll start checking the runoff from group 2 next time I feed them, to see whether to keep them at 0.8 EC or to raise it a little bit like I have done with group 1. So next we have... A shot of Group 2(Sweet Tai top left and near the bottom on the right in the black pots, Sweet Zkittlez bottom right, SAD s1 top middle and BigFoot top right. Temp probe for the heat mat controller is in the empty soil pot(top right hand side). The 2 x Sweet Tai BigFoot And we have... 3 x SAD s1 Next up... 3 x Sweet Zkittlez Last up we have... A closer look at the 2 x Sweet Tai A little roundup Everything seems to going fairly smoothly so far(although there was a wee incident with one of the Mohan Ram plants but I'll save that for the next update ), and I've even seen the beginning of some nice looking root mass coming through the bottom of the pots already I expect to be watering/feeding the 5 best plants(the 3 Mohan Ram and 2 of the Red Hot Cookies) on a daily basis quite soon. I don't normally do this, but I might even have a try at popping some of them out of their pots to have a good look at the root development, to get a rough idea about when to pot up. And take some photos of course Group 2 certainly don't seem to have been held back by my choice of pot size, they look less than 2 weeks younger than group 1(to me anyway). I'm definitely enjoying my first coco grow so far and the @Intense Nutrients seem to be doing an excellent job Thanks for taking the time to follow along with me, I'm aware that I do ramble on a bit, so a big thanks to those reading the lot and not just scrolling through the photos Atb at this unprecedented time, as well as dealing with the current cold weather. Until next time. Stay Safe and keep those roots warm.

  23. Good morning all So with the true trials and tribulations of this diary we have an update ! The weather outside has played havoc over the past month or so with my environment inside the room, one way or another i have been constantly tweaking this grow cycle to adjust and regulate the environment, one minute the plants where happy the next minute not so much ! but we managed to keep them happy enough from throwing another tantrum They are 2 weeks into the flowering cycle in these pictures, i have defoliated some of the larger fan leaves that where covering loads of flower sites and it has allowed for better light penetration, now I'm not an advocate for defoliation but sometimes its needed with certain grows to optimize results...anyway...pictures... There a 5 larger plants in 25ltr pots and 3 smaller plants in 3.5ltrs , reason being i thought i needed to fill space but could have done without but this is a little hunt of sorts so nice to see what each genotype will bring, they have all been backed up and are rooting in the propagator as we speak, also a mixture of UGORG & StonedCircle cooking on the go at the moment to soft through. That's it for this update will be back next weekend with another Keep it green folks Farmer G

  28. I would encourage everyone to get a selection of regular seeds just as a little safety net. Plenty available in the subbies seeds and you can do a good deed and support the site at the same time. Definitely an opportunity for UK breeders for sure in the mid to long term, but in the immediate future things look like they'll be rocky to say the least.

So we can see the 16 x single row strips of Samsung 3k from @diyledukand the string of Buddies (white) from led_teknik are attached to front and back of the light frame. Plenty of reflected light going on in there with the wall panels etc. Excuse the wire hanging i need to trim them to size now the buddies are running.

    wow in all the years I have been on here never had someone be arsey about me asking a question. I am asking about the quality of a breeders current work. I have been out of the scene for a while and a lot can change in the canna world with lost parent stock etc. Would you have preferred I I had started a thread for each individual strain of theirs I am considering purchasing? haha I have seen spice and fancied growing it but I can imagine the conversation my mates would have with me if I said I was smoking spice

  32. Hi all DIY'ers, I thought you might like a look at a hybrid light I made from 2x @diyleduk products. First purchase was a 'Scope 275' back in the day, later upgraded just the lighting strips to Scope V2, which offer more deep reds than the original Scope. Then came a High Light 240 lighting board, which I bought after reading the following blurb: "The extremely popular highlight board kit - for true connoisseur growers - is back and better than ever! With new features and an improved spectrum; these are amongst the most advanced LED grow lights on the market.The new "High Light 420" Horticultural LED pcb takes growing to the next level. With a broader UV range, increased Far Red, splash-resistant coating, and a waterproof plug-and-play cable system. With 20% better efficiency than the original High Light boards - over 3 umol/j at low current - these Australian-made grow lights combine top-bin Nichia LEDs with an array of customised highly efficient LED Teknik diodes (420 total), that cover the entire spectral range from UV to Far Red (390nm-780nm) with no supplementary lighting required. A collaboration between Grow Lights Australia and LED Teknik, the High Light 420 board is the most efficient “true” full spectrum, single-channel LED grow light on the market. These new lights have 5% UV and near-UV (390-420nm) and 10% Far Red (700-780nm) for faster growth and essential oil production." Most of which I didn't understand except the bit that says "faster growth and essential oil production", and I was sold. The High Light 240 alone is possibly overkill for an 80x80cm tent but I knew they'd be great together. I bolted a frame together using 40mm aluminium u-channel for the Scope V2 strips, wrapped the frame around the High Light pcb, wired the Scope strips back up in parallel and hung the beast up for my next SCROG. I even sprayed the frame in black paint to make it look nice. Both the Vo ADJ & Io ADJ on the original Scope driver now at lowest setting, which I believe to be 50% - The dimmer on the High Light is set to around 1/4 turn off the lowest setting. In action, both on: Using the Scope V2's to replicate sunrise and sunset, they're on alone for 2 hours before the High Light kicks in, same in reverse, the Scope's fly solo for the last 2 hours. Full sun Temps and RH% sorted My Sassberry (Purple Haze x GG3) looking happy with all that light. Another week and there's no space in there, especially once the grid is installed for an even canopy. So that's it, both lights really compliment each other. With 2x drivers on separate timers, I can play with both to respond to the plants needs. Both on 100% would create a lot of heat and probably burn the plants, but reducing both to half voltage, using only the Scope for the first and last 2hrs, I should keep running costs and heat down.

  33. Each time I think that ham faced bastard can't slip any further in my esteem he comes out with some utter fucking bullshit like this. Tory drug policy is literally killing people, which Kieth knows full well, but keeping up his 'sensible' politician act and passing the right wing tabloid acceptability test is all that little shit cares about.

  34. Skunk #1 had Afghan in it anyway. When you consider the fact that by the time SK#1 went to Holland Sam had apparently already bred the darkness out of it, and made it more light and sweet, it starts to paint a picture that our beloved national clone only lines aren't what we thought they were. Infact I suspect the "skunk" actually has little to do with it, and its more the NL5 and Afghan, and if they did come from skunk lines, they came from skunk lines back crossed to the Afghan lines (NL5, Afghan etc) Psychosis we suspect is NL5 x Haze, Barnsley Jack we know is ((Haze x Haze) x NL5) x ((Haze x Haze) x SK#1), considering that its pretty unanimous we all agree that they're related lines, is so out there to think that maybe Cheese and Livers aren't the big skunk lines we thought they were? Anyone who has been lucky enough to grow, smoke or handle alot of all 4 will tell you that theres some common ancestery there - the more I grow, the more I smoke and the more I learn, the more I come to believe that the clone only lines we came to love in this country came from Nevilles work, and not straight SK#1 at all. There I said it The other thing to bare in mind is that Neville sold the castle to Dronkers, stuck about long enough to release Jack Herer and then disappeared back to Australia - at which point the genetics started going very quickly to shit ( Adam Dunn on the Potcast speaks about this, he worked at Sensi during this time) and we stopped seeing those dark sinister plants, apart from the ones that got saved as clone onlys... and now that Neville is dead (RIP) and the original parental stock has gone (apart from what Shantibaba still has) all we've got left to grow and work with is what got saved in clone format. All we are doing is recombining what Neville started. Ot1 has always said that the skunk lines he aquired and worked with were not the ones that went to Holland with Sam, and they weren't even called "skunk" when he got them - theres a chance what ot1 worked with was before the Afghan was even bred into it, I can't say that for sure though as theres some real stinkers in ot1s work - but who is to say its from the Afghan side of things? Ot1 has told me where his Skunk and Haze genetics come from however its not my place to share that history, but I believe what Ot1 has said on their origins more than I do anyone else, including Sam the Skunkman, because ot1 has nothing to gain from spreading misinformation, I can't say the same about other players in the game, past or present - but the point I am getting at is consider the lines OT1 worked with as like the Alpha and Beta versions of Haze and Skunk, before they were "finished" - Have a look at Ace Seeds phylos report for their Oldtimer Haze and compare it to Ohaze or TH haze - it gives a little clarity on what I am saying regarding the lines ot1 had access to being unfinished.

  36. I can recommend Sweet Seeds Red Mandarine F1 Fast Version, late Sept early Oct harvest, hardly any mold (1-3%), full sun for best development, well ventilated, a tough strain for gorilla grows (for me), most delicious flavor, incredible, 100% running again this year. Im sticking with mostly Sweet Seeds for a while i tink, the best flavors iv tasted so far, and they are very nice people too Another one defo running without fail is Sweet Seeds Crystal Candy FV, amazing tasting smoke it really is my favorite of all time so far (next to Jamaican Dream by Eva Seeds) , but i did have mold issues with CCFV, however she matured in 5 weeks,full on cloudy trichs! Smallish yield for me from a monstrous plant but well worth it. Could be better of running the Auto CC XL instead, but im 100% growing it again this year. stunning smoke. Anyone else grown Crystal Candy FAST Version outdoors before in UK? i would love to hear about it. However, Delicious Seeds have got me full-on tempted also, in my basket is Eleven Roses Fast Version and Critical Neville Haze Early Version.......... should i or should i not..... i know i will haha! Heres Red Mandarine F1 FV @52-53 Lat UK 2020 Gorilla styleeee..... Got a few beans from her too,not many just a few, my Red 'Mandy' FV seeds for 2021 are sorrrrted....

  37. I have been running 2 x 275w Version 1 Scope strips in my flowering tent for a few years now and they have revolutionised my growing in many ways, I was very happy with these lights and had no intention of upgrading them just yet. I was then kindly offered the chance to run the new version 4 in my flower tent so I can test it out and document my adventures along the way. Many thanks to Adam for the opportunity and I hope I can show what they are capable of. I have had the new fixture for around a week and so far it’s looking good, it’s a much better fit, in fact it’s perfect for 120 x 120 grow tent giving you wall to wall coverage in that space. It was delivered in a plain sturdy box well packed out with inserts, also they have designed it with a pivot in the middle so it folds for transportation which also protects the LEDs while in transit. The V1 scopes were pretty much DIY affairs, I had to screw all the strips onto the frame and plug them all in, I had 2 controllers with long cables going everywhere. The Scopex 680 is much more plug and play with built in controllers and a dimmer on the front. You literally hang the light in the tent, select the watts you want to run it at and plug it in to the timer, not sure if you need a contractor with this but I am using one anyway. I was advised to run it at 550w, I have raised the light up a bit higher as the V1s were running at 470w. This isn’t going to be a technical diary on how to grow plants, I think we will let the pictures do the talking in this one. I have plants in there that are almost finished so will not include those, the first ones in that will be properly flowered under the new light are Dinafem #Purps 1 and Pineapple Skunk (smelly cut). Scopex 680 Pro

  41. Just to let you know I am going to be doing a little guide on how to take COTC worthy photos on your mobile phones. I was just waiting for some plants to purp up but they are almost there now so watch this space. Good luck all in the contest this month, some awesome photos and UK growing on display in here.

  43. This year, had plans for 2 DFG, 2 MWF, 1 Auto Tangie. But thanks to @panik's 2020 outdoor gorilla competition and his generosity I’ve got several more strains, can’t wait to try them all. Doing one of each, mid June to give only waist high plants… Famous last words… Plot A (mainly semi autos, finish Aug-Sept) The 7 (photo)* Kushty BX1 (auto, semi auto) PurpleFreeze BX1 (semi auto) MWF (semi auto) Auto Tangie (auto) *Parents ESxS#1xGG, grown previously, same plot and both were ready very early Sept. Plot B (photos, finish Sept-Oct) Affidaze Gorilla Haze Purkle#1 Lemonade OG DFG Plot A is shadier than plot B, hence early finishers in A, and best to disperse plots in case of rippers. Yet to clear scrub and make holes, waiting for more tree cover to cover me working. Frogs were singing few nights ago in my pond, spring is close folks... This will be my first time with 2 plots, hope I’ve got the stamina , certainly got the land, Cornwall, 8.75 acres, magic… M

    6 Sweet Ladies In Lockdown.

    Hello All, I hope you're all well and the mother nature is smiling on you. Here is couple of pictures straight from the grow tent door unzip, lights still a little low on ratchets. You can see how the ladies have kept on reaching and are almost touching the LEDs now. Oh and this is Do Sweet Do's lady that flopped out the door trying to make a break for it. She no like lockdown. I don't blame her. Real beauty of a gal. Beautiful and dark. Grow Day:61 - 29.01.21 Flower Week 5- Flower Day 29 I will start by including a copy of the activity schedule as it explains my method on grow day, flower week ect. I'm not sure if this is how the breeders or others measure flower weeks. Ive measured from flip this run. Do Sweet Do's and Mohan Ram Ice Cool in the back and Sweet Zkittlez out front. There has been a few issues on my visits to the shed. On the 28th Jan to fill the water/feed tank I noticed it was really low. I filled it back with room temperature rain water and checked the grow space. Lo and behold the tank had emptied it self into the plastic garland tray the 6 sweet ladies are sitting in. I quickly grabbed the largest syringe to hand and sucked up all the excess water/feed, I will throw this away. I'm not to sure what has caused this, it could be fault dripper and excess pressure on tank from over filling and putting the lid back on. either way ive checked all the dripper and not filled the tank so full. I use around a 15/20l Wham plastic water box as tank, as this allows me around 24/48 feed respite window. I could use a larger tank and no have to fill the tank up so often and visit the shed even less. However the risk of that ism if there is an issue the tank dumps it load the garland tray will over fill and flood the tent, possible ruining the root it heat mat below the tray. All sucked up and hopefully no root rot. I also added a new fan and the black clip on one was on its last legs. These are very much a make do and mend. I will try and look to add another fan down low to keep airflow. Group Shots Positions as below.

Ive had to remove the ratchets and fix the non heat sink part of the LED to tent frames at the top with cable ties. I wouldn't recommend this long term as as the cable tie will perish. This has give me another 4" of space and you can see from the pictures it looks better so hopefully its little easier on the plants. Over the coming week I will also turn the watts up on each LED again. The closest and plant to light is now only 8" away.

  46. well, firstly a massive thanks to adam and craig at @diyleduk for another amazing deal and superfast despatch, ordered yesterday at 10:30am and had just arrived, well chuffed, all assembled and fitted now and looks the dogs bollocks! i wont hesitate to recommend you guys in future. i also want to say thanks for the hangers as i was thinking i would have to order separately but they are included! perfect. just took a few pics to show them in position this is the par+ at 75% i have fed some that want it 3ml of bloom and .5 grow with 1ml cal/mag the two 300's side by side now, and set to 60% for now still having a slight issue with Ca def but i think these were watered with just fishmix, it's only 3/14 so i'm guessing the rest have had the intense grow and are covered, i have given them all cal/mag as well, but only recently, now they are potted up and had more cal/mag i will be feeding exclusively intense grow. all should be fine soon!

    strains not to buy !

    Some plants are just a bitch to clone ya know. Its got absolutely nothing to do with vigour or health. My disco biscuit keeper is one of the best plants I've ever come across. Its a fucking arsehole to get clones to root. That means nothing. How a breeder could possibly know that a seed is going to produce is a new one on me. My take on freebies? They sent to entice you into buying more.........if they were duff seeds and you grew them and they were shite, its a piss poor way of advertising and getting someone on board. I'm sure the likes of karma send out shite as freebies so people are put of running his gear. Yea that makes sense....not A lot of people here are bitching about bad plants and calling breeders all sorts because they ran one freebie seed of a multipolyhybrid x mulitpolyhybrid and expect the Holy grail from every single seed. I wouldn't expect that level of performance from fully stabilised line taken to f4 or more let alone from a strain of the latest cut of God knows that crossed to God knows what. One seed a strain does not maketh.
