  1. Hi everyone, im currently growing 5 Wappa in a 1.2 meter tent. The last grow i did i had a Jacky White from Paradise Seeds, i thought it was a beautiful strain, tasty smoke great to be around friends with, great effect all round Im using 2 x 400w HPS with a 6 inch twin speed carbon filter and 5 inch twin speed intake. Oldtimers veg and bloom. Plagron light mix, bat mix. Its day 6 of flower plants are in stretch, i know itl probably get pretty busy in this space so ive done some defoliating, cut away lower small branches that wouldnt amount to much supercropped one plant and pinched branches on others then gone in with a baseball bat only messin' no it was a chainsaw and im mainly focusing on the top two thirds of the plants for hopefully quality bud. Hope its a good ride, i like my meds. Peace out brothers n sisters

  5. Morning Fellas, I've taken my own cuttings for the first time but I had to take them 5 days into flower. I've read lots posts some say that it's fine and won't make a difference less than a week in and others saying it'll take a month to reveg and so on which worries me. I popped them into root riots a week ago, no roots yet but look very green and healthy. Does anybody here take cuttings less than a week into to flower? Will they be fine and once rooted ready to go into veg the same as a cutting taken in veg? Cheers Marv

  8. Sorry if this has been done alot but its hard to find, as there is so much info of how much plant stretch vertically when in flower but little in comparison about horizontally, just methods of how to train one to do so Any one got any ideas? If vertical growth in flower would be around 3 X, would horizontal be around double? Also would the amount of plants around it make a difference, eg one plant on its own with space would grow wider than one surrounded by others?

    Some pics of my 2nd ever grow. Barneys farm blue cheese from seed. Popped 6 out the pack. All germinated into root riots. No worries about any of my ladies bein' a man in disguise or 'owt 'cos I use femmed seeds! These are into their 7th week of flower. Not sure how long left yet. Some are ready I think but some are most certainly still only on white pistil territory so........we'll see. These were grown out under 2 x 600W HPS plus 2 x Prakasa 90W LED. 2 X 2 X 2M tent. In Amazon sprinkler/aeroponics unit. SMS fan controller with RVK 6" fans for inlet and outlet. The cool air inlet was used to cool the 600W HPS lights with cool tubes and to supply the cool air to the tent in one go, whilst the outlet took away the hot air. Temperature maintained at a very steady 26-28 degrees C, after some alteration to the cooling system. I had initially had the outlet fan pulling warm air past the lights to cool them before the air was passed out through the filter. I then had a brain wave to increase the temperature of the air coming in using the cool tubes to heat it before it got into the room. That seemed to work well and I think it helped the controller figure out what was going on as I had nothing but problems with the SMS rallying the hell out of the fans and it sounding like a jet was landing in my bedroom before changing roundI I used advanced nutrients sensi grow and bloom throughout along with superthrive, small amounts of H2O2 and pH down for slight control over water quality. I always fill up my water barrels and leave for a minimum of 24 hours to get rid of excess chlorine. Don't know if it works but it seems to work for me! At onset of flowering, I began to use Big bud, Bud candy and Bud factor X. I ended up doing some light LST along with a sort of scrog to fill my space with the 6 I had. Bear in mind I'm not a natural green finger. More a curious schoolboy home scientist! Problems I had with this variety: 3 different sorts of plants (pheno's?). There was 2 really fucking tall ones that grew taller than me. 3 meduim size ones that had the broadest fan leaves I have ever seen. I am not joking. These fuckers were like something out of Jurassic Park rain forest mofo's. Then a real dwarf, runt of litter grew like a grapevine one. I bought the seeds before reading any recent reviews and wanted to return them when I had read a few! But I went with them any way.........and all in all I am pleased with the outcome! It might sound stupid because these plants are all over the place genetically by the looks of it. The reviews were terrible and it seemed that people were really bashing this variety and Barney's in general, I ain't no weekly visitor to the Dam so I don't much care for views on the over commercialisation of the coffee shop. Or the view that every seed should contain an identical plant. In this mixed up mash up of cheese and blue's I have had a real lively, eventful and enjoyable grow. I have battled spider mites from about week 5 so that was really mid-veg onwards. I managed to keep control using the smoke bomb type of pest control and very minimal spraying of infected leaves with trounce. As my temps lowered a little and I got the ventilation under control, the mites seemed to die off and I only found a couple now and again throughout the whole cycle. Problems arise with my judgement of veg time and how the plant should look prior to induction of the flowering phase. I seem to always get it wrong and veg too long. They end up huge and I end up with burnt tops! It happened last time! They always look small to me for some reason so the stretch always has me done up. That was my reasoning behind using cool tubes this time around. Smell is high in eh list of problems with this one too. It started smelling very early and has never given up since. It has gone through a multitude of aromas from earthy, floral, fruity like berries and now heavy musk cheese. Sometimes on the odd occasion I swear I can smells a bit of horse shit/manure in there somewhere and theres now't organic round these parts mush! The fact that some are finishing up at 7 weeks and one looks like it may go 10-12 a bit of a predicament but that presents it s own debate and asks it own questions about equipment choice and set up type. So, pests, stretch, mungrel plants and environmental disasters have all reared their ugly heads during this one. I have learned many a valuable lesson on this one and I had no expectations on yield so what I end up with is just what it is. Always room for a bit more though!!! ! I have sampled a few of the smaller buds from the bottom and just let them dry in the air at room temperature. I think with a proper dry and a good cure this will be some proper pukkas. It already has a good taste and smell with just an air dry so.........and yeah, it's strong as fuck too. I used to be a proper caner of the highest degree but i've become a it of a joker smoker with age. This battered me. I smoked half a small roll up size joint and let it burn out to leave for later. Mental head high but gladly that broke within half an hour to a very long lasting, 'wheres the time gone?' sort of buzz. Happy and mellow. Felt like I could do something really cool, but felt too good to move to be bothered about doing it! All the buds are different sizes, different colours, different aesthetic resin levels, different densities. There is not a hat full of anything uniform, noticeable similarity or any two traits apparent between plants which might dare to suggest stability in the BFBC line. Yet all of them have shown at least one desirable and much admired trait or quality that was worth the effort of growing. A 6ft tall sativa dominant with a main cola two feet long and the circumference of a pop bottle. Indica dominant bushes with the biggest, broadest leaves ever. Throw in a couple of mungrels, neither Sat or Indy dominant, that had noticeably beautiful and vibrant flourescent green flowers with incredibly ginger orange pistils. And a particularly resinous, darker leaved variety which grew in a most vine like manner. Maybe Tarzan would have been proud of this one. Can't see getting caned and swinging round on vines catching on though! Might have a think about it......or i'll just pick these last few buds before I swing over. You know like...it'll save coming back later! Gone off the subject again but a busy brain is a smokers prerogative. Yeah, this one was seriously resinous. Covered thickly in fine frost which was a nice visual contrast set against the dark green velvety leaves. Also seems to be the most cheesey smelling when compared just by a quick snuffle with me snooter. I ain't a bloodhound but this shit stinks like cheese wrapped in sportsmens socks and left in an incorrigible and encouraging atmosphere. Even i'm beginning to think i'm a bit stark raving mad thinking that something I can compare to smelling like the above smells kinda nice! In fact, it has the sensory centurions in my suspicious snifter sending invisible communications between high speed neural pathways that begin to form words, sentences, questions such as "It's gonna be well pukka if it stinks like that It must be. Nice...I think i'll have to try that. Just one lii' bud won't hurt. I owe it to myself. Anything that smells that strong must be the bomb man! In fact I better try if before some other lucky brother cops a lungful and claims the whitey!" See how nice I am! Thinking of the other folk. Always a beacon of conscientous responsibility me. Or just how easily I can blag myself into air bud mutilation! And at the minute, that is what I am getting stoned on. Cheesey vine air bud dried in the sunshine. No two week dry yet, no 2 week cure to release the oils, strengthen the high and develop the flavours. Still full of excess salts prior to flush and full of chlorophyll. And still a good smoke. Not particularly harsh either considering a poor trim and speed dried, poorly developed air bud. So about 6 more days till I chop the rest and put it in to dry. Properly, slowly and to the book this time. No rush, no push. Just dry and cure. Patience and discipine. Oh and i'll be using final phase as of tomorrow, Sunday, just to leach out the excess nutrients if it can be done. The science says yes and no on the subject and no one anywhere is any wiser whether its worth it or not or even if it is actually possible for the plant to lose excess nutrient from the roots into a solution. I have read as much as any man and can't be sure so a bottle of stuff that

  11. Hello all, I wanted to ask at what stage during flower do my plants need the most light to maximise yield? I currently veg under between 300w-450w hps but I'm ready to go to flower soon and will using two 600w lights. The reason I ask is I want to obviously yield as much as possible whilst keeping the lighting costs in check. I know some people the moment they go to 12/12 go straight to the bigger powerful lights but I just thought are the needed straight away? Could I just use a single 600w for the first couple weeks and then bring in more lights when the flowering really starts to kick in? I'm in a dr120 with 2 century digital ballasts that can be set to either 300w, 450w, 600w and super lumens. Cheers

  14. Hello homegrowers Had a question about feeding coco in 1.8l pots. I am testing 25 cuts in flower, each in 1.8l pots under a 600w light. I am drip feeding each pot 0.5l feed every day. Of the 12.5l feed in, I get about 10l runoff. Im wondering if I can get away with feeding less, say 400ml, even 300? Do any others flower in 1.8l of coco? What would you recommend?

  20. Hi all, Can anyone help diagnose these? I'm four weeks into flower They were fine until a few days ago when I noticed the EC was a bit high at 2.0 and the tips of leaves were showing a bit of nute burn. It was changeover day for my res anyway so I thought I'd give them a couple of days without feed on just water, Silicon and H2O2. As I wash;t putting feed in I also left the PH where it was at 6.6. I went in today, 48 hours later and saw a lot of the the bud sites looking all shrivelled like this. I'm using a IWS system in clay pebbles Air cooled lights Greenhouse seeds hybrid powder feed Big Buddah silicon Big Buddah Pk8-19 H2O2 for extra oxygen PH usually 5.8-6 The nutrient level had creeped up to 0.8 from the salts left in the pebbles over the 2 days. I've now upped it to 1.6 today and taken Ph to 5.8, plus added big buddah PK9-18 at 2.5ml per litre. Although I'm dubious to think this is a starving problem. Day temps are pretty consistent with lights on at 74-78f although night temps have gone as low as 55f. I've put a heater in there tonight and turned the intake fan off fusing the lights off period. I've searched though lots of the threads here and google image search and can't find anything like this. The closest thing I could find was old-timers carbon dioxide issue where his pal turned off the intake. Any ideas folks? Much appreciated.
