  9. yeah its mighty mite x freezland bx thats then been taken to f2/f3 by others. it gets its name because the breeder (jaysprout) was intending to pollinate a different strain but got mixed up and hit a freezeland, hence the name fucktard. its a decent outdoor strain, only thing thats stopped me working with it more is minor herm traits late in flowering on some plants. still definitely worth a grow if you can get your hands on them or crosses. Ive got a bunch of (MFxEWS) x fucktard f2 fems i made knocking about. heres a nice fucktard lady...

    HOW MANY SEEDS IN 1KG BAG?

    weigh out a gram of the seeds you got and then count how many there are, then times that number by 1000. only way to get an accurate idea as like you say size can vary significantly.. wouldnt be surprised if some seeds could weigh 5 times the amount of others.

    Hi @LE BIG BUD , thanks for the pm asking about how I got on with the Jack47fv from Sweet Seeds. I thought I’d reply on here so other people can see too, hope you’re ok with that 3 Jack47fv Mid September Jack 47fv was a gamble for me this year, I’d had fantastic results with Green Poison and Killer Kush the previous year and knew it would be later and chose it for that reason accepting low mould res was a factor with this strain as reported by others on here. We have all lamented on this season and this is a bad year to do any real comparison. My Green Poison sucucumbed to the September Mould Mardi Gras and due to my KK finishing 3 Wk October missed the mould but were really skimpy. @james1612 did J47fv with some good results and was included in the COTC for October, well done Sir. Mould hit me hard as with James and I was left with just a bit of late popcorn. I did get a few bits but it got lost in the mix of other bits as branches of other plants that were cut too early in a bid to save from the rot. Mine finished around 3 Wk October at lat 51. Would I do them again ? Prolly not and would look at Dinafem OG Kush For 2018 as a later finishing strain as part of my early, mid and late flowering spread.

    Some things I've made from wood.

    Here's the project I said I'd put some pics up of tomorrow about three months ago! I've been working on it on and off for a couple of months, but all told i reckon i put about 30 hours into it, just bimbling along. I finished it this afternoon. I started with this. A piece of old oak with some steel on it, found rotting in a field out the back of a reclamation yard. I'd love to know it's original purpose, off an old lock perhaps? I thought it could make a cool coffee table, but it was a bit of a gamble buying it as I didn't know the extent of the rot....If it was right through I wouldn't be able to work with it, but external rot i can remove. Grass growing from a piece of timber isn't usually a good indicator of quality..... These pics show the rot..... The first job was to cut off the longer end, and then cut the metalwork back to allow room for the ends of the timber to be sanded down. A bit of exploratory sanding told me the rot was largely superficial, but quite deep on the one side. I removed about 3 inches of the rotten side (on the right in the pic above) in the pic above with a chainsaw, then planed it flat. Even then some rot remained, but i decided just to sand it out and have some curvature on the edges for a bit of character and tactileness....as I did this a variety of insects were evacuating their homes. The whole thing was then sanded, and sanded.... To finish it, I smothered it in Danish oil, working it into the splits, then waxed and polished it. After a bit of deliberation I decided to paint over the original patina on the metalwork to smarten it up a bit. I ended up with this....apologies for the poor photography, the lighting is shit in my place, I struggled to get a decent shot this evening. It's turned out well i think. Originally i was planning to sell it, but I've spent so long making it I've got attached and I think I'd rather keep it...

    HSO Sheep DOG Trials

    Welcome to my HSO seeds4diary and many thanks firstly to @HSO-Mark and HSO themselves for the chance to try some of their genetics. I've titled it Sheep DOG trials since I'll be running EWE-2 and Black DOG. As I explained to Mark I will be doing mostly a pictorial diary with the odd bit of commentary but it will (after this initial monster update) be mainly pics. Firstly the scene setting as it were; A quick run down of the environment etc so everyone knows whats what. Environment : Nursery Cupboard with 125CFL and small fan ! veg tent and 1 flower tent (1.2m*2 each) (400w MH and 400w HPS respectively) 2 x 5" RVK extraction fans (passsive intake) 1 12" floor fan 1 35" tower fan 1 x 6 litre capacity humidifier in veg tent Nursery Stats - 23 -25 c temps 50 - 60 RH (125 CFL lighting) used for slow veg Veg stats - 21 -25 c temps - 40 - 70 RH I'll be using rainwater and some Biobizz bottled Grow and Bloom but otherwise I'm trying to reduce the bottles to a bare minimum. My soil is All Mix until final pot up. I am using TNC Mycorrmax for the first time with this grow as well. I have also taken to a regime of regular foliar sprays weekly to add seaweed and clean water I am also trialling a trace micro-nutrient solution with amino acids as a once weekly foliar as they progress. Aside from that I will only be adding molasses and Aloe occasionally along with Biosys for micro herd. With the potting up regime and a good soil mix especially final pot up I am hoping to keep the NPK additions from bottles to an absolute minimum or at least that is the idea Right thats all the science mumbojumbo out of the way now on with the most intense initial update of a diary I will likely ever do.... Picture diary from seedling to 2 weeks before flipping, I'll start with the obligatory soak shot and things will develop in rapid fire style since the veg period is critical if rather uneventful. I will highlight as I go any training etc but for the most part I top and create 6 head bushes in a manifold type style. I have in fact intended to do that very thing with these 2 girls. So for your viewing pleasure (soundtrack not supplied) the HSO Sheep DOG trials are underway! Space and time issues combined with my need to identify some strains for my daughter means I could only run 1 of each but that should not detract from the fun . As you can see we are off to a great start with both up and loving life inside 5 days! moving on to the first pot up which took place at day 17... EWE-2 is off to a flier and I thought Black DOG would be the faster developing but, that is not the case straight out of the shell. As you can see BD is a little behind her neighbour but there is always time for that to change... Now on to the following week... So, first topping for both and they are very similar in structure thus far and they are loving the Aloe feed too EWE-2 (above) is a real beauty and BD is too to be fair... Its all a bit sever at first but I need the extra veg time and I want them to have some nice airy space to develop. Now on to the next week..... Black DOG loved the topping and is really having some spurt... I could not be happier with how well they have taken to their training ... next week up... Well I was a little early with this pic update but I thought what the hell Well, That brings us up to nearly the end of November and I will be updating from here to current day this coming week. The flip is planned for just around Xmas so I'll do 1 more BIG update before the holidays then back after New Year for hopefully a very frosty finish. To anyone that made it this far and is still awake I suggest a big fat one cos that's what I'm going to do now Peace All Breezus

  23. Hunger mate mostly and just to chuck a spanner in the works, over fed on some. If your temps are fine and your roots arent cold causing your plants not to take nutrients up then there is only one other reason your leaves fall off and go pale. They are hungry for something. What the leaf look like and its age/position on the plant tells you what it is missing. Its only normal for a plant to fade in the last two weeks as the plant uses the nutrients stored in the plant. Have you read the FAQ section? And re read it. And read it a few more times? You need to know the signs and how nutrients works in a plant, which are mobile and not and what they do and how each one shows in either abundance or deficiency........get reading This is what is going to get you to the point where each input you make has a meaning and reasoning for doing it becasue you have "read" the plant and it has told you what it wants. All the info is out there, its for you to learn it bud and then you will understand whats going on. You dont need a cure when you know how to prevent it. You need to look at any leaf that isnt perfectly praying or perfectly green and work out why its not perfect. Im not trying to be a hard ass mate and i will help you as much as I can but all I can give you is the tools, its up to you to work out how they work and how to use them properly.

    random guerrilla photos

    @LE BIG BUD sweety chez was allllriiight. would I run them again? Probably not....only if I had an abundance of them again. Anything cheese doesn't perform too great outdoors IMO. they will grow, but mold will hit them, the cheeses that have been worked outdoors are far supiorior. Cheese bred with something hardy.....something for over 54 Lat perhaps. The best outdoor cheese I ever did was ubercamels cheese/Dane/kush something or other. nightmare to trim on the spinner. Real woody stems...that might have to do with how late them came in though. Good stink, so bear that in mind. Once dried its not bad.....needs a good cure though to bring out flavour/smell. Frosty early on, but once spun seems they lost a lot. Needed a couple/ few weeks warmer weather to perform there best. Too late. Far better strains to grow here outdoors, and lots of them now....in an ideal world I'd like everything in by early October latest. was chopping well into November.....

  29. Update Day 30 11/13 Evening all bit late with this update as I wanted to do it on the weekend but been a bit busy. I aint going to ramble on today as there's not too much to talk about and these girls are putting it on as we go into this next phase where I'm expecting the flower production to ramp up in a few days time. They're not handling the 400W sodium as much as I'd hoped tbh and some bleaching is going on with the tallest of the two. Consequently one leader I've had to bend or it'd have burned the tip out too much and they also seem to prefer halide lighting these Remo Chemo as they don't quite look as good as they were to me last week, but still decent enough however. I've trimmed out a few more fan leaves because they're quite big and shading too much for my liking, was tempted to strip the lot of them off and will no doubt take a few more as they bloom but for now will leave as is. I've also upped their feed because they're getting a bit greedy now and I'm not quite getting enough Mg or P into them, other than that though, fine enough. Data :- Lighting - 400W Sodium Temps - 27.4 C on / 20.7 C off Feed - 2ml/L Bloom, 2ml/L Magnifical, 1.5ml/L Micro, 1.5ml/L Astro Flower, 2ml/L Nature's Candy, 2ml/L Velokelp Hydration - 2.5 L every 2.5 Days Aromas are lovely and sweet, developing everyday and perfume is predominant, but there's more that I can't quite pin yet...very nice too. With regard to the light bleaching, I've shifted them about from the pics in this update (I took them on the weekend but like I mentioned, was a bit busy to get it done until today) anyhow, what this means is that by moving them about, I've managed to keep the tallest leaders away from the lamp far enough by my reckoning so will see the results after a few days. I've only done a pic each of the plants and full cab for this update, however I'll try and get some pics up later in the week too if I manage to sort this writing work I've got on As you can see, they seem happy enough, buds are increasing so all where it should be I reckon. The next pic below is of them back in the cab and in this pic, the two Remo Chemos are on the left side with my GP FV at the rear right side with the Skunk #1 in the foreground of that (she went into bloom last week and is a bit of a beast by the looks of it That pretty much wraps it up for today then folks and as always... ...thanks for watching

  30. Update 11/13 Right folks, it's been 15 days since the last photos were put up in here and I put this Skunk #1 into bloom straight after it so I think we're on around day 14 bloom I forget all the time and cos I'm now running five different strains all at different stages because I'm doing this perpetual thing, I dunno my arse from my elbow at the moment Never mind it's all fun Anyway, this girl is a beast and I'm starting to brick it a bit She's solid and once again a Seedsman plant surprises me as to how genetically together they are, got loads of leaders on it, all pretty even except for one or two a couple of inches lower and strong stems etc (I think she's slowed on the stretch though and fingers crossed she won't do much more as I don;t want to super crop her because of room in the cabinet...if I have to though I will, will see over these next few days, perhaps just a bending over session She's on these Remo Nutrients of course and had no grow for a week, straight onto the bloom formulas as I want to run this with lower N levels and she's got plenty in her anyway Data : - Light - 400W Sodium / 11/13 duration Temps - 28 C on / 19 C off Feed - 1.5ml/L Bloom, 1.5ml/L Micro, 1.75ml/L Magnifical, 1ml/L Astroflower, 1.5ml/L Natures Candy, 1.5/L Velokelp Hydration - 2.5 L every two days. Just a couple of photos then, one in the cab with flash and frontal and another from the plan elevation, when the flowers come a bit more, I'll put some more photos up then. Sorry about the quality, I had a bad run on photo taking today...just one of them days with light and my shaky camera shit Reckon if I can keep this one from burning off the lamp, she's gonna be a blinder and I'll also strip out the lowers and lollypop during the week. Til next time, thanks for watching

  31. Update Day 36 - 11/13 Afternoon all, hope you all aint stuck under ten feet of snow Funny weather eh Not bad round here though cos the wind blows in from the sea. Anyways, I think it's day 36 with these here Remo Chemos I lose count see Right, they're getting on with it and yesterday I went into my man cave and sniff, sniff So the filter's done, did ok fair play but I could detect a faint whiff, so as you do, out the filter came and put the new one in (was blocked up too, no wonder my airflow was a bit shit lately and temps getting a bit high) Truth be told, I've noticed a drop off with airflow out of the extract for a while so whilst doing the filter, I thought bugger it, I'll clean the turbine blades on the fan as well (these bloody rucks though, rounded off the bolts on the motor the fuckers never had that with RVK, could strip them down). So It took me a while, but managed it and give it a good old clean with some white spirit (save your old toothbrushes folks, ideal bit of kit for getting in there)...shitted up it was...me and my buddy toking in there see, the pong built up a bit but a couple of nag champas and job done, besides the white spirit stinks the gaff out (it's good for getting the stench of your fingers too folks if the soap aint working ). Pleased to say airflow, drastically improved so good work. They are stinking up now these, got a hashy quality and stays on the fingers forever after you've felt them up a bit I'm loving it and frosty too! They're going into mid bloom now and packing the good bits on, canopy is dense though and so I'm taking a few leaves every so often to get the penetration up, little by little like. Nutes are performing well fair play, working magic on the the GP FV too and the Skunk #1 is another solid beast that's soaking it all up I've been upping the feeds incrementally and they're both on 2ml of all now (data to follow) and reckon they'll be on 2.5 ml/L of all next week as they like it. The tallest one though I thought was going to bolt as it's pushed up the bud tip a bit on the tallest leaders but she's seems settled and I've put her in corner a bit more to give a little more distance from the lamp...it is tight though and too close so some leaves are getting that slight tint of too closeness about them but ah well, tough shit, I think they'll be ok but watch the temps on these Remos folks as they don't like it too warm, 26 C and they love it, 28 plus and not so happy Data then :- Light - 400W Sodium 11/13 Duration Temps - 28.4 On (peak before fan maintenance) / 19.6 C off Feed - 2ml/L Bloom, 2ml/L Micro, 2ml/L Magnifical, 2ml/L Astroflower, 2ml/L Natures Candy, 2ml/L VeloKelp Hydration - 2.5 L every couple of days Photos today are not the greatest tbh peeps, light is a bit shit so grainy and I've only used flash for the shots in the cab because I want natural light for folks to see their true colour... the buds were done with flash and so not too bad though. I still haven't staked them up, but that one above I think will need it, so if I get some time in the week I'll get them in (been busy see, loads of writing to do and flat out with essays ) Chunking up though and good for this far in, got a good feeling about these Remos. Bit more shape about that one but canopy on both is dnese at the top and hence why I'm taking leaves out bit by bit to get these lowers hardened up a bit more and squeeze some more flowers out of them. Full cab shot above with the Remos on the right side, GP FV front left and the beast that is the Skunk #1 (she's starting to worry me but a solid plant fair play) Some buds below then folks, one of them is of one of the buds that I thought might be bolting, seems ok though. And that just about wraps it up for another weeks guys, enjoy the weather til next time... ...thanks for watching

    @Sunset It'll work but you'll need to leave on of the windows open 24/7 to help mix the air flow BUT if your on the top floor, you could maybe make a hole in the roof of the cupboard into the attic ? as for what equipment I'd recommend, I'd go with a 1m x 1m x2m tent £100-£130, for your lighting, I'd go with either a 600w adjustable Digital HPS (high pressure sodium) ballast & run it at 400w, a 600w adjustable HPS set up with one 400w lamp would cost roughly £160, a two lamp set up would cost £180, or you could consider one of the newer 315w CMH (Ceramic Metal Halide) lighting set ups, they cost £240 for a one lamp set up or £320 for a two lamp set up, it sounds expensive compared to HPS but your using less power to run it & because the CMH lamps have a better light spectral output, the weed is slightly more potent & tastes better. for your ventilation, you could go with a two fan set up but you ca get away with using just the one fan for an active outtake & you use the vent flaps on the tent as a passive intake perfectly fine. as for what type or size of fan to go for & at the considering that the grow has to be stealthy, your going to have to get at least a good 5" inline fan & 5" carbon filter & is the one area where you cant afford to scrimp & save to try & save a bit of money, so look for Ruck fans, Can fans, RVK fans, as for what make of filter to go for, check out Rhino pro, Phresh & Mountain Air. you also need a small clip on fan to blow air inside the tent & help prevent mold/budrot if you were to upgrade your fan & filter to a 6" set up, you could run at 600w HPS or 630w of CMH. its also a good idea to get a fan controller to slow a fan down & reduce the noise, as well as getting acoustic ducting, you can get a couple of sheets of 25mm 8' x 4' Kingspan or Celotex sheets to line the neighbours connecting wall with, its easier than it sounds, trust me you can also put some under the tent to stop any noise of going downwards & help insulate the base of the tent at the same time. a good fan controller can cost from £80 for a diy controller or well over a ton for a off the shelf unit, also, some controllers are better than others & your better going withsome thing with an actual power transformer inside it like a variac or a voltage stepping controller. you also need to get a contactor for your lighting ballast, these prevent timers sticking either on or off & can fuck up grows by changing the time on the lighting cycle. if you go with a 400w HPS or a 315w CMH, you can use a Heavy duty tier £10 but if you run higher wattage lighting, you'll need a dedicated contactor £30 & good timers, £10 each. as for what medium your planning to grow with (soil or hydro) its advisable to start growing with soil as its easier & lets you learn how to grow before you consider to try hydro as its a bit more complicated, its also advisable to use a better quality of soil compared to the cheap stuff from B&Q as theres less bugs or plastic crap in the soil as a filler, I use Plant Magic supreme, its not cheap at £15 for 50 ltrs delivered & normally get a few bags at a time, its worth it as I try to keep my grow space as bug free as possible as certain pests can totally ruin some grows. as for what nutrients to go for, you need to a bit of reading about this as theres loads of choices & its the one area where you cant afford to fuck up, I know, I just fucked up my previous grow with using chemical nutes at the start then switched to organic nutes when I switched to flowering & it killed the plant stone dead. you'll also need to get a few measuring jugs (1ltr & 2ltr), some syringes for measuring nutes (10ml-30ml), if your hand watering, your going to need a decent 12lre-15ltr builders bucket & a good watering can with a longer spout as they can make things a lot easier, I use a 2.25ltr Haws patio can with a long reach & only cost £12. you also need to learn about potting up, it helps you fill a smaller plant pot with the plants roots & it helps the plants root developement better, your also going to decide on what shape of pot & saucer your using to finish with, you can squeeze in slightly bigger square pots compared to using round pots & saucers, your also going to figure out how many plants you want to grow, for your space I'd go with either 4, 6 or 9 plants at a push.

    HOW MANY SEEDS IN 1KG BAG?

    Folks @LovinTheBeans & @GrowYaBoat Take it back to the other thread no? Rather than trashing someone else's. Love Ashley.

    scromiting ..apparently its a thing

    15 pints of Guinness and a really hot curry make me shart. I rang the Daily Mail, they said they'd call me back. They must have been busy, so I called back again, to tell them about my sharting, and they've told me to stop calling. Once again, its one rule for screaming Americans, throwing their rings up, and another rule for a pissed up Northerner, who's shit himself after an all dayer.

  43. Every last factory bust we see the lights are feet above the plants, which are always doing fine. Maybe it's time we revised our old assumptions about light spacing, I've seen members here saying they have their lights higher and it doesn't make much difference. They don't look like 1000 watters and much as always it's just bogstandard open ended reflectors. Nothing wrong with proficiency but are we just being a bunch of exhibition leek growers about some aspects of technique?

    Clueless

    hello clueless first off you dont need to run to get what your after ..i gather you learned from pat butcher about the constituents of the plant being in two main parts /..(keeping the terminology to a minimum here ) thc -the stuff that will get ya high cbd -the stuff that wont get ya high .. both have benefits sometimes you need more of one than the other but the good news is the bit you need the most of is cbd ..which is becoming widely available in health food shops and online legally(bit of a grey area) even amazon sell cbd buds ,lotions and potions ..maybe try some cbd buds legally first before you see whether you need to go into the realms of thc . my advice is if you do decide to want to try yer hand at gardening then keep it simple to start ..go for a plant thats tried and tested and grows itself ,theres a lot of finicky strains of cannabis that would just put you off growing ,theres plenty advice on that stuff on this site ..the next thing is to do a lot of reading up ..and remember no such thing as a stupid question ..unless of course its what hat to wear at ladys day at ascot . all the best in your new found direction to a healthier life ... oh and dont forget to eat cherries regularily and get some bicarb of soda in yer now and again ..great for arthritis ..even if just used in a bath and not drunk .

  49. i guess its just different times to when Howard and others were doing their thing the grow industry/business has rocketed in the western world, pensioners and teens growing all the strain names under the sun obviously it still goes on (import) but the business model has changed in certain countries. who knows eh, smoke time! funny enough ive just crossed a Disco Biscuit with a kona sunset which has produced a couple of phenos with black leaves, not dark, black. ill see if i can do some photos its coming down today, its not a prettty grow, it got out of hand when i went away for a week!
