  1. 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
  2. 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 :-)
  3. 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. The top reading is the wierless probe in prop box readng 26.8c and 84% RH NICE WARM AND SWEATY SPOT ON FOR MY MAGIC BEANS The bottom reading is from the actual station showing nearly a 10c drop just a few inches above the prop box its important to keep close eye on temps and RH during the first few weeks
  4. 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

  7. using a wilma 4 pot 11 liter plants are to close together and covering each others buds any suggestions ? shall i go back to manual watering
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. Hello Guys Just A Quick One Ive just germinated 4x photo seeds. in my veg tent i currently have some autoflowering seedlings under a blue spec light. would it harm the photos if i stick them in with the autos for veg ? the autos will be going in new tent in like 2-3weeks thanks guys

So started of another 4 plants in the veg tent ( experimenting with different mediums etc. see what works best for me) vast and fast auto this time I'm using canna coco pro in 11 liter square pots Plants are 1 week old today using coco a+b nutes does anyone have a rough guide on how much per liter to give at what stages ?? or should I u se there online chart builder and half the feeds see how they react to it thanks guys love the forum so helpful etc
  12. hey guys currently have 4 autos in wilma 4 pot doing good very bushy is there any harm in tying down branches to get more light to the buds seen a video saying it also increases yeild thanks in advance pics below
  13. 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?
  14. 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
  15. 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

  19. Hey guys, my plants are flowering as you can see, how do they look to you. I know the plants are very small but this is my first successful grow :-) take a look, comments and feedback would be appreciated.
  20. Hey everyone, I have just taken some photos of my plants and some are not looking great, so just wanting some help and advice. They are all about 4 and a half weeks old, plant magic+ soil, under cfls. Will share photos.
  21. Hi, First of all, sorry for my english, it’s not my native language So I had ca 4 unsuccessfull round with very poor yield. As a beginner i made a lot of mistakes, for example over watering, under watering, under feeding, over feeding, adding too much kind of fertilizers, addictives. I wanted to make it organic, so i used the BioBizz line. For veg i used Plagron Grow mix soil, for flower BioBizz All mix soil. As fertilizers i have BioBizz Grow, Bloom and now i have BioBizz Alg-amic and BioHeaven. I want to open a diary soon, but i need some pre-discussion about some topic. I think one of my problem is my tap water source. It has a PH of 8.2-8.4 and an EC of 0,76 (380 ppm on scale 500) after 24 hour sitting. I used BioNova Citric acid as PH down and ph’d to 6.0-6.2. I have ph’d the plain water and the water with nutritients also. Maybe this was also a mistake, i don’t know. Then I bought now a RO system. My RO water has a 20 ppm of salts, and a PH of 8.0 by letting sit. If i add nutes the PH is 5.2. So my questions about the water source topic: What is the best water source in my case? (Tap, RO, Tap + RO) If I go with RO water and use BioBizz Alg-a-mic (plus possible BioHeaven) with every waterings, it will be OK? Will it cure the Cal/Mg deficiency? If not, what else should I buy? Should I ph my water and feed water? How can I prevent my soil of PH goes off? Can I mix something in BioBizz All mix soil?
  22. I have a friend who is doing their first legal grow in America, however his internet has crashed so he has contacted me to try and find a solution. The Problem is heat! It is a stealth cabinet grow currently with a 125w dual spectrum for 2 plants in 5l pots. They understand that this might not be the best set up but its what they have. Apparently temps usually sit around 85'F or 29.5'C which is quite hot on its own but temps have reached 111'F or 44'C on the odd occasion. The temps are being measured at the average height of the plant, Apparently they are around 2 weeks old (from sprouting) and are an autoflower strain. They haven't browned or discolored and are still a health green and growing daily, however some of the leaves are curling up at the edges and some apparently seem to be almost spiraling around ( not curling under but twisting sideways) not massively but a little. There are 2 80mm PC fans ,one intake and one outtake, which more than cover the cfm needed for the space. So what do you think he should do to reduce the temps? Add two more PC Fans? Also if they were do do this, roughly speaking one fan is in a bottom corner and the other is in the opposite top corner, would the two extra fans if they were to be attached on the opposite side of the cabinet be placed so that the intake are both at the front and outake both at the back or so that both intakes are say bottom right on each side, so from the front one would be near the front and one near the back? Add a PC fan inside to increase circulation? Reduce light hours as they are currently running 20/4 - 20 on and 4 off Also can anyone recommend any threads about building scrubbers/ carbon filters? Would a carbon cooker hood filter work? As apparently it has started smelling not of full flower but a smell they would like to remove. Thanks in advance for any replies!
  23. Hey, I was just wondering what you guy thought of a couple spots, I found some woods that were very quiet it was walled but it has mostly fallen apart now. There were deer in the forest, a small track through it but I thought I might have been rabbits or something, no litter but there was some branches of trees rested up against trees like a sort of shelter. There was a clearing in them that I wasn't sure would be enough light but I will try to cut back as much as I can if I decide it's worth giving it a shot. It's quite an open forest but near the clearing is a couple fallen trees where bushed have started to grow around and there's a little clearing in the middle, you wouldn't be able to see into it from most angles once the leaves are out. Is a bit of a gap though but it's prety far from anywhere. Another one is at the bottom of a fairly steep west facing slope, it would be much easier to cut back stuff here to get more light than the other spot, it's fairly close to the back of some peoples gardens but it's all overgrows for an are around it. There's a fairly well used footpath about 150m away on the other side of some barbed wire and those fences they use around construction site. There are nettles at the spot as well and next to it a patch of mossy ground, i wasn't sure if moss is good or bad as i know nettles are meant to be good. I read moss might indicate slightly acidic. The last one I'm unsure about is on the top of a hill with a fairly well used footpath at the bottom of the hill, the hills all very overgrown and the spot is south facing quite a big clearing, can see some houses in the distance and there's a couple abandoned greenhouses near by, completely overgrown. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
  24. Hello everyone , I am a first time grower i thought would start a journal and update weekly hopefully till harvest. Heres some info on my setup SPACE - walk in closet thing. Floor space 4 ft x 1.5 feet height is around 4 foot total then theres a shelf lighting is on underside, filter on shelf itself . SUBSTRATE - plant magic supreme NUTES - plant magic , grow , bloom , root granuals ( 20g per pot ) , bio silicone and , mag if needed. FILTRATION - 6" rhino hobby vented into loft space . LIGHTING - 2 x mars 300 led light units well will be as of tomorrow ( plus birthday end of week hopefully order my 3rd ) so will be 280w actual draw and 420w if i get the 3rd panel over the comin week 4 x cfl 125w daylight bulbs ( not all running because of heat issues but are there if needed ) i will probably run what cfl i can heat permitting along side the panels. AIR MOVEMENT - 2 x 6" clip on fans WATER- gassed of for 24 hrs with airpump tap water PLANTS - planted straight from seed strains are incredible bulk and rhino ryder from gorilla seeds both start 3 rd week veg tomorrow rhino just hitting pre flower now , no sign on the bulk as yet but its growing well ! Royal queen seeds bluematic and royal dwarf these are starting second week veg tomorrow ( note i start my veg count from first small group of leaves not the initial pop of them ) Here is a pic although having trouble putting on this thread? So heres a link http://www.uk420.com/boards/index.php?app=galleryℑ=350735 Royal dwarf on the far left then the rhino then the bulk (noticibly bigger ) then the bluematic. As already stated this is my first ever grow thought maybe start a journal so members can follow to check out strains maybe, or maybe just help me out as and when i may need it . Am not expecting miracles from this first grow but if i grow enough to justify my running costs and initial setup costs i be happy . Hopefully get enough to tie me over until my next harvest and i can dump the dealer. I have 4 plants and aiming for 4 oz , time will tell i suppose either way am pretty sure am at the best place to be any suggestions etc good or bad will be takin on board and hopefully we can have a laugh along the way .
  25. Got the frame for the grow room built today, now to build and insulate the walls and get the equipment in.
