  1. Hey people I would like to grow my own this year. I had brought the seeds towards the end of the growing period last year, so I want to start properly this year. I have 5 seeds, all auto flowering and different varieties. I was just wondering when is the best time to start to germinate the seeds. I will start them in the window and when ready I will move them out doors in the pots, due to the smell that may be given off. I have the pucks to start the seeds off in. Should I wait till end of February or start now. Any help and advice would be much appreciated.
  2. Had a catch up with a friend the other day, he's going to be buying a boat to live on this year and we got chatting about the possibility of setting up a little 1 or 2 plant grow drobe.. Has anyone done this before or know of it being done? I've searched on here and google for boat grows and couldn't find anything.. It must have been done before surely!? Do you think with a solar panel and leisure batteries, you would have enough juice to power a little 250 HPS or CFL and a little fan? What ya reckon!? He's not a big smoker.. Q a week if that. So would only need 2oz every 2 months. Can get a nice 7 week cut, 2x ounce plants every 7 weeks then a week to dry!? Be interested to read your thoughts on it UK420

  4. Hi guys, as the title states, i am looking for the highest yielder for INDOOR grow (in terms of dried and cured buds) that has a 50% sativa and a 50% indica in it and has a ratio of 1:1 thc:cbd. Which one is the best strain? Only feminized seeds please. Thank you Cheers riddly
  5. I'll tell you a bit about myself..I am currently living in the England, United Kingdom. I smoke daily and looking at doing my first indoor grow.I live by myself, I have my own attic (not shared attic) My main issue is the smell.. I need the smell to be virtually non-existent from the house & neighbours.I will also do a grow journal and keep everyone updated!I am currently looking at doing an indoor attic grow.. Using soil.. 5 plants of White Diesel haze automatic in 10 litre pots in a 1.2 x 1.2 x 2m (600D) running using 600w magnetic ballast - 600w dual specturm HPS bulb.Extraction: 4" (100mm) CARBON GARDEN Carbon Filter (40cm High) - VORTEX 4 inch (100mm) In-line Ducting FanDo you think the neighbours or house guests will be able to smell the grow?Stealth is my #1 priority Thank-you!
  6. So, I hail from the north of england and have jus started my second grow. A little about my first.... it was complete noob attempt with only advice from one or two people I know and the rest online which tbf is great but only reading other people's question and answers doesn't always help, so here I am! Anyhow it didn't to turn out bad at all, considering poor basic set up and using just guessed estimates on feeding with poor ventilation system, no ph testing the filter on the floor and no intake fan so yeah as you can see any return you would be happy with and I returned 560g of very decent, strong effecting buds yet no smell unless you grind up which I believe now is due to my drying skills but that for another time....So after getting my hands on the basics I'm away on my second hence finally getting my ass into gear and signing up. My cuurent grow. I've upgraded parts to a limit I could afford and changed my feeding etc.....So I have a 3m x 1.5 m x 1.6m roof cube tent. My carbon filter with fan attached is now hanging at the top of the tent, ducting leading out of the tent. At the opposite end I have intake fan with ducting leading into the tent. Inside a big oscillating fan along with 2 small 6 inch clip ons. As for lights I have 2 600w hps lights connected to 2 digital ballasts ranging from 200w to 600w(running 1 light at the moment, later explains) I don't think it's a bad set up but any advice but be highly welcome I will try attach photos if possible. The feed i have opted for this time is old school orig canna a & b, rhizo, cannazym and then my own additives down the line which include bud blood, bloomblastic and big bud. I'm now oh testing my water to around 6.0 I believe it is that is best, well between 5.8 and 6.0? ..... if your still reading my long my long winded essay on this Saturday night then I do seek some advice as always! Firstly ..... I put 10 cuttings into 12 l fabric pots on Thursday night. They are currently sat under just 1 light, running at 400w as I've been told to up to 600w and bring the other light in once they have rooted in there new pots, is this the case? Or should I get more light wattage on the baby's. They are also sat 55cm away from the tallest cutting although they are all pretty even, is this correct? I'm also running them 24/7 right this second as I've read this is jus as good or even better then 18/6, is this a matter of opinion or factual? Last time I ran 18/6 for 5 weeks before switching to flower, I'm worried if I do 4 weeks of 24/7 I will kill them or something bad etc? I have been feeding them less then the table says from canna as ive always read it's very high feeds from them, I dropped a&b to 10ml of each obvs, and 25ml of rhizo. I pre fed the cocoa before potting the cuttings in with this mix. but I didn't feed aagain once they was in the cocoa, should I have give them a slight feed again? I'm now around 48 hours later so going to check to see if needs another feed tonight if it does then the same feed as the first I probs will go for before I up it, or should I up the feed already? If your still awake i award you, and for any advice and help thankyou! Hope to hear from you all
  7. Hey guys, i got a t5 flourecent tube for propagation but I can't seem to work out how I can hang this? The manufacturers instructions state you cab leave the light on top of the propogator lid because it's only 26w. Was worried that this might be a fire risk though. The only other thing I have is ratchet straps. Also wondering what is the best light schedule for seedlings? Help would be appreciated, thanks :-)

OUTDOOR DINAFEM AMNESIA/CRITICAL JACK AUTO DIARY PREPARING THE BED I started work on the bed well inavance of planting tuning over and removing the garden soil so i was left with a 2ft hole to add my soil mix to later After a few days of turning over i added some perlite ,vermiculite,locally sourced chicken manure,bone meal and mixed in i covered bed with black plastic to stop weed growth (not the good kind) DAY ONE (SEED) 16/6/17 Welcome all to my 2017 auto diary so lets get started Here is a few pics of the great packaging you get from the @Dinafem-Mark guys So lets get started i decided on a nice layed back grow so i rolled a nice big blue cheese joint and grabbed my self some starter pots coz i have autos i dont want to faff around with transfers so i used this method to limit root stress mixed up some perlite and coco soaked with rain water and rhizo ph'd to 5.8 popped the seeds in and left the pots in diy prop at botom of a shaded seedling greenhouse The temps you see on the above hygro meter are from wierless probe's.

  9. Hi all my new green fingered friends, I've read through the entire (37 pages)thread of grow tents reviews, and there is no mention of the lighthouse grow tents. I'm looking at the 1.2 x1.2 x2.0 m lighthouse max tent and would love to hear what people think of it. Its priced the same as the Bud Box pro 1.2msq and in my local hydroponics shop (hull hydroponics) both are set up to view. I cant decide which one to go for!!! And to confuse things a little more, i'm also looking at the green qube 1.2msq tent too. Please let me know what you guys think of the lighthouse max tents (NB I'm not considering the budget lighthouse lite tents) Andy

  13. Hi guys my girlie has decided to go for a small 2 plant grow in a cupboard under a 250w HPS lamp. Being the hairy chested medallion wearer that I am I like to look like a fountain of knowledge, now I understand that any strain can be trained to accommodate a small area, but I was wondering if anyone with micro growing experience prefers 1 strain in particular? Any help or comments (including sarcasm and down right cheek) are always appreciated.
  14. Just a quick update on how flowering is going lst these and move leaves under buds everyday for more light to buds these are looking good now with lots of tops and 600w hps upgrade

  18. Hey all I just moved to a new place and I have two potential grow locations, one is in the loft and one is in an outhouse; I have always grown in outhouses etc but the neighbours in this place seem a bit nosy. Luckily the loft is enormous but it sits 27C, no access really to the chimney and its a flat slate roof; so how the heck do you go about keeping everything cool?
  19. Hi ( new to forum so apologies if this is in the wrong place etc) Basically i came across 2 seeds in mid july in a bag and decided to plant them to see what would happen ( first time trying to grow). i germinated both seeds and since then both have been growing outside in pots. one plant is about 1.5 feet and the other is under a foot. so my question is is there any chance of flowering these plants since they were planted late and if so what would be the best way? i feel that by september/october it will be too cold for them and the days too short. I was thinking of forcing the plant by putting it in 12 hours of total darkness each day? any advice would be much appreciated and thanks in advance
  20. hi all happy 420, just like to say very new here and to this so have a few questions for you avid green fingered fiends, all auto relating and mainly nutrient related, well where to begin... 1: using nutes would you scale down if you were in batmix or lightmix or just generally scaledown anyway irregardless of what soil you use..? 2: what nutes to give.. grow, root stim, bloom, nector, bloom/flower enhancers.. etc? and when to give them.. let the pot go dry?? wet/dry? or just every few days give it a lil drink..? 3: pot size 12l airpots same as 18l premium square pots.. well thats all i can think off now.. sit back light up and have a lil think,,, many thanks
  21. Hey guys after looking around for some time ive finally come to the decision on growing, this will be my first time so i dont want to mess it up.. ive been looking at a few tents and because im on a short budget ive gone for one of ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Canna-Complete-Hydroponic-Grow-Room-Tent-Fan-Filter-Light-Kit-600w-120x120x200-/252323452580?hash=item3abfa656a4:g:rvgAAOSwZQxW6soX could you guys tell me if this tent is okay for growing 4 plants? also the nuts that come with this kit are they any good or would you recommend any others? and the last thing is where can i get a plan that i can follow for the nuts thats been proven to work as i have a track history of messing up and i dont want to take any risks thanks
  22. Hi guys, I'm a new grower and was just wondering if anyone has grown the stardawg and how it went? It's an amazing strain. Any advice or tips would be great.
