    PFNC: Official Warning re Monsanto

    I read today that Monsanto and other mega businesses are getting into the legalised canna-economy over the pond. I predict: Soon they will quietly buy up existing "breeders" operations, especially those in the Femmed seed industry. They will buy up the Auto-strains too. Then, bit by bit, they will get the control of all Brand Names such as "Skunk" or "White Widow". End result: you will be dependent on them for all your seed. Your cannabis will be in their hands? Happy with that? If you're not happy you must immediately do two things: 1) Buy loads, and I mean shed-loads, of the strains you prefer, in their Regular format. 2) Read up pronto on hack-crossing. Read all oldtimer1 has posted here about this. His insights and experience are second to none. 3) Start hack-crssing asap. Store the seed in your fridge/freezer. Of course, I could be wrong. But I'd stake my wrinkly old arse-cheeks on my not being so. This prediction/warning brought to you from the General's desk at PFNC.co.uk Tootle-pip, canna-peeps; keep it green, keep it natural, keep it FREE!

    Cauliflower Steaks

    How can it even be called a cauliflower steak though, its just a fucking slice, but you can't charge silly money or mug people off by calling them a cauliflower slice. I'm gonna start removing the hard bit inside a parsnip, slice it thin and call it parsnip bacon, then sell it to muggy hipsters in Shorditch in an artisinal paisley and seaweed roll, with mohair ketchup and dust salad for 9 quid a pop.

    HPS Vs LED surprize

    So here are two big threads I wrote about plant lighting and how to light a grow room: I'm afraid to say that this thread and your grow proves nothing when it comes to showing how your lighting units perform against the other, and lux only tells us how well our eyes will perceive brightness from a source - great if you're looking at lighting your front room or photographs. So unless you know the total PPF output of all your lamps, the only way too know for sure would be to isolate your 400w from 400w of your LED unit, using the same clone in both areas and treating them the same and measuring the end result. You are currently lighting a space with mixed lighting, so even the plant under the sodium won't give you an accurate yield representation from that lighting unit due to the very nature of how a sodium leaves a foot print of light compared to an LED unit. Sodiums have a rectangular foot print where as most LEDs have very direct square foot prints, which means the LED units won't spill into the centre of your area very much at all, where as your sodium will be spilling over quite considerably to both sides of the area. Also Co2 is effective in flower, but just scaling Co2 up won't achieve much you have to scale everything up with it, like feed and lighting. No use ramping up the ambient Co2 to 1500 ppm when you can't even achieve 700 ppfd of light.

  5. Yeah she has done a very good job I think, doctors recommendations and evidence of it working, and it being clinially tested approved Bedrocan oil all go in favor, also respect her for refusing to turn to the black market and do it in secret, because as she said why should she when the arguments for allowing it legally are so strong. Shes also done well getting the attention of the press and getting the issue out there. Go Alfies mum go!

  8. An open letter to Nick Hurd MP Leave a reply 21st February 2018 Dear Mr. Hurd, Yesterday in Parliament, Mr. Crispin Blunt MP asked the Government to make a statementregarding the case of Hannah Deacon, who is fighting for access to cannabinoids to treat her son Alfie’s rare form of epilepsy. You responded that you and the Government “sympathised deeply” and that you “understand and respect the desire of the family to try to alleviate his suffering in any way possible” It is obvious Mr. Hurd that you do not understand at all, Alfie suffers from a rare form of epilepsy that is life-threatening; it is not a case of a parent trying to “alleviate suffering”, it is a case of a desperate parent trying to save the life of their seriously ill child. You also pointed out that supplying cannabis “is unlawful”, my friends and I at www.budbuddies.co.uk are fully aware of that, we have been forced into breaking this unjust, cruel law for the past 18 years. I can assure you that the decision of a parent to administer cannabinoids to their seriously ill child is not one lightly taken, indeed I know that the serving police officer who asked me to supply her with cannabinoids for her terminally ill child gave it a lot of thought. As you are well aware, the decision to reschedule cannabis is not within the remit of the Secretary of Health, it is solely at the discretion of the Home Office; up until 1971 doctors could prescribe cannabis preparations, please persuade the Home Secretary to permit them to do so again. It is ironic that 100 years ago Suffragettes who could access cannabis for their terminally ill children fought the Government for the right to vote and today their great, great grandchildren can vote but have to fight for access to cannabis medications. This Friday, myself and a group of Mothers will be at Parliament to support MP Paul Flynn’s private member’s bill. I will be there in possession of cannabis oil with the intent to supply to the Mother of a dying child, which as you are well aware is a criminal act. By rescheduling and permitting doctors to prescribe cannabis the Government will not only be assisting seriously ill people but also aiding me to not be a criminal, please help us.

    Your Best HSO Picture's

    Bubba's Gift @HSO-Mark what can I say bro one of the best tasting strains I've had in a while I found this strain a little slow to veg out but once into flower it took of well with nice compact nodes with loads of flower sites 64 days of flowering and she was finished Really dense flowers with this super fruity floral petrol smell with hints of lavender going on ...effect is one where you will not be moving for a while with this pheno. I've been a smoker for 20years and a grower for 18 years and this has really impressed me And yes all I've kept a mother of her Thanks Hso mark for the beans yet again T.O.B #ukbudcrew

    HPS Vs LED surprize

    Bazzo mate Led v hps has been a massive bone of contention on this site and many others for years mate. Some people hps is all they know and trust and its well proven over the years. You aint a mythbuster brother lol, these aint proper experiments , just a bit of fun. Very interesting fun and very important to the growing community I think. You have the space to easily do some proper experiments in the future however. I'm just really curious to see the differences in detail is how they both flower under the 2 lights. My god if your mate has a bit of gear from his shop still you could have some fun with the testing. I promise u if you tested a 400hps against your led , then against a cmh, once you smoked the cmh bud you wouldn't want to go back. A mix of led and cmh I would really love to see and smoke a bit of that bud. Also what performs the best watt for watt at the wall led or hps? As led marches on , its the draw from the wall that's important ie 270w not the manufacturers opinion of how good they are ie 600w. Can 2x 270w for instance outperform 2 x 250w hps? In weight or quality or smoke strength? These are the real questions I feel. You are good enough to play ball mate and however you wanna roll is cool with me. Each grow you will pull in loads of data . I'm loving it mate. Everyone stay positive and no jealousy please. I know its hard , fucking spain , free power , beautiful growroom. anyway you crack on Bazzo mate zz

(straight in-between Damp kitchen towels in a Tupperware box and put in the airing cupboard or ontop of the boiler for 24-36hrs has always worked no need to soak in shot glasses of water,.. ) Then pot on in small 0.5L pots under some floro's or cfl's, and they will be ready in 2-3 weeks to pot onto bigger pots or system,.. no need for propagators and all that with seeds, that's for cuttings,.. Keep it simple,.. Never complicate things and don't over water ,.. GOOD LUCK Just my 2pence horses for courses and all that,.. Panik

    Why are regulars considered better than fems?

    Regular seeds produce males, more work for some, but essential if you want to cross two strains without using chemicals. Feminised seed will be less likely to produce a wide variety of phenotypes, meaning you'll have less expressions to choose a keeper from. It will be the plant considered 'best' by the seedbank, so your choices which may be different will be limited. Because of the process used to create feminised seed, the plants can be more predisposed to hermaphrodism and therefore more likely to seed your room with unwanted and unplanned seeds. Some growers, including myself, have noticed that plants grown from modern feminised seed tends to have woodier ovules, that look like microseeds, in the finished bud.

    New Strains Growers needed!!

    Hello all As we have just released 2 new photoperiod strains we are going to need several new strain growers We already have @MacGanja and @JamJar who will both be running Purple Moby Dick The Purps#1 We could do with 5 more growers per strain or 5 growers if you have the capability and capacity to run both @Badbadger will be doing 2 strains i believe so if you would like to take part get your name down. With this I could ideally need you to start asap Looking forward to seeing who put there name down and what the UK420 community can do with these 2 new strains All the best Mark..

    Legalisation

    It annoys the fuck out of me when all we talk about are the negative consequences of the legalisation of Cannabis. Particularly when we already endure most of the downsides of a hyper-capitalised market already. Good or bad, there are regulations on all trade. Those regulations ebb and flow with societies, but they're almost always there in some form or another, again for good or bad. Just like in any aspect of life in general, those that have a deep interest, or specific need of something, will keep that thing alive. We do it now, well continue to do it if there is a mass market, or harsher attempts to control home growing. I'm prepared to take up that challenge just so Joe bloggs, or phenom up there, or myself can, in times of need, purchase essential medicine without fear of persecution or poor production quality impacting further on health.

  21. Hi all... So I'm in sunny Spain... Summer is coming and 300+ days of sunshine every year would be a shame to waste, indoor grow is going great but i thought I would try some outdoor growing again. Last lot I did didn't fair very well, I planted them in the ground with a few bags of compost, didn't check the ground soil at all, unfortunately only a couple really grew, and they were nicked 3 days before chop, hence why I went indoors. However, I thought I would try a semi greenhouse this year, so I've built this and changed the dog kennel run to incorporate where the greenhouse is, if anyone fancies taking on the dogs at night then good luck to them. I say semi greenhouse as its not completely enclosed as you can see, its more of a wind break and some shade from the sun. Its woven polyester material, the same they use in the big commercial tomato greenhouses, so lets through plenty of light. My question is really, do you think I should try and cover all the gaps or will it be ok? Ive put in a water butt that I intend to fill with nutrients and rigged up an irrigation pipe and ring drippers. The soil trough is 5m long, 600mm wide and 600mm deep filled with a mix of soil from the fields and 20 bags of compost. Planning on 5 seeds from @Dinafem-Mark of Purple Moby dick and The purps#1 outside and 5 indoor.

    HPS Vs LED surprize

    You must understand that thats a silly claim. I have personally nearly pulled half a kilo from a 400w hps so I know what they are capable of.........thats some big boots for 270w of any light to try and fill. As jibba just mentioned, plants grow to the light and kinda stop when they reach a point where they are happy as we see here. Plants know whats good for them and growing any closer to something that is causing them stress is not something a plant does willingly As for the heat stress.....no you do not have burnt tips, you only see that under what I would consider extreme heat stress as its to the point its frying the leaf. See on the serrations how they curl up on your highest leaves, yet dont on lower ones, they follow the contour of the leaf. All the best bud

    best reasonable cookies genetics

    What about Blimburn Seeds GSC? Only heard good things about them all round. And cheap. I'm currently running their GSC from one freebie seed. It's killer stuff Taken at 9 weeks, it's properly done, super strong, but a bit heavy? Too strong for daytime, but too heady for night time. But i properly love it. Gonna take the next lot at 8 weeks It never lasts long in the jars (moorish, even though it leaves you proper fukd) but after a few weeks in the jars, a sweetness comes through. It's a bit harsh at first. Pic's don't do it justice. Properly covered in resin. Staying crystal clear right through to a sudden finish of amber and red, but still clear I'm looking forward to having a tent full, instead of just one plant

    HPS Vs LED surprize

    @botanics Absolutely mate, the amount of psuedo-science lately has been getting ontop. So so much bad advice being banded about, I saw on a page (not here thankfully) not long ago a discussion on driving nails through the stalks of stems - I thought that sort of pointless shit was left behind with offline publications. Theres a reason I'm so anal about this stuff and it's so everyone is speaking the same language so when we do advise on a grow or share information it can be done so in a way that everyone can understand across different rooms, in something as variable as growing cannabis we need as many consistencies as we can, take it from me

  30. Somewhere between nothing and a lot. As it is your first grow, nothing is more likely than a lot. If you get more than nothing, be happy. Look at what went wrong and avoid that next time. Do not expect a lot, that way leads to disappointment. Eventually, when you stop doing all the things that can lead to nothing, you may get a lot.

    Morning uk420, I hope your all well, Right Monday again. Day 51 flower. Temps 21/27, off/on. First thing is First, I have noticed that I have been labelling some of the Asd as Cmog Just to clear it all up all the taller bits around the centre are the Asd Which is filling out nicely I started tapering down the feed a few days ago, before the flush which I will probably start in a week, I'll see how it goes. As for the Cmog wow, what an amazing looking flower, little bits of purple on the tips, a general darker appearance, very frosty too, I really must stop taking pics with my phone and buy a camera and a laptop. I am going to start flushing this today for 7/10 days again I'll play it by eye. Finally the gsc, they have been on the plain council pop for 5 days, I reckon I'll start the friday Thats my lot for this week, cheers Jj
