  1. my mate has a 2.4x1.2x2.0 grow tent which he is running 2 x 1000w lights is to much or ok.
  2. So there's magistrates guidelines saying a personal grow is 9 plants per person with no more than 24 in one location before those guidelines supposedly change but it says nothing about how much light is used!!!! 9 x 1 plant 1000w scrogs would surely be taking the piss will domestic uk electricity suppliers notice that kind of thing ? even if you are paying for it, or is it they are not bothered as long as your filling their coffers ? So how much is too much for a perpetual personal grow in the average uk household ?
  3. hello again guys decided to get a 400w hps for my 90x90x185 tent currently got 4 autos in there under 250w hps would it be okay to put 5-6 plants under the 400w hps ? in 11 liter pots proberly try aut again see if i get any mre than 1 oz a plant unelss you guys think 5-6 photo plants would be better yeild thanks in advance guys
  4. Hey all. HUGH, PUGH,BARNEY,CUTHBERT,DIBBLE and GRUBB are now 10 days old. Has anyone tried placing the reflective film over the top of the pots? Covering the soil and reflecting the light back UP through the canopy? Will that aid Photosynthesis, or just confuse and disorientate them? Tried googling it.... And how to spell disorientate.
  5. Am currently looking into swapping current setup to The Gavita Pro-Lines E-series All In One Light Unit. with The master controller unit to suit.. Has anyone had any experience with the Gavita Setup? How did you get on? Digital Ballasts have been a concern for myself, as Many Years ago when I was looking originally to use them, they were throwing out magnificent rf to the point my radio didn't work (old fashioned I know )... but it knocked the frequency for the television out, so I felt it to be wise, to switch back to the magnetic ballasts. I'm aware of the cost difference and Overall performance showing that digital outperforms magnetic, It's just the radio frequency causing my delay Also is there much Light penetration difference between the 400v bulbs in the Gavita, in comparison with sunmaster or Sylvania? Technology always Evolves and its been a while, so I'm hoping maybe.. they have sorted the frequencies out? anyone care to clarify?
  6. Hey, So I am on my second grow and I have been getting really high recently..... Anyways because of time restrictions I only usually get to my plants at lights off. My tent is in my room and my radiators are on all night so my lights on is 6am-6pm, This is to minimise temp fluctuations, at about 6:30 each night I open the tent at dark to water them. Now because I have been really high i just assumed that opening the tent for 5-10 mins at dark to feed them wouldnt be an issue. Ive been doing this for 5 weeks now!!! My question is, Should I be preparing for my plants to hermie anytime now? so far though I dont see any hermies. (touch wood). AND I've stopped opening tent at dark now btw
  7. Ok so i'm going to starting my 2nd grow soon. Last time I used 600w lights and had a rather successful 1st grow but I think I overdone it on power considering I only grew 3 plants and don't intend to grow much more than that. So my question is as follows, I want to downgrade to the lowest possible light wattage whilst sticking with HID lighting, Ideally 250w since i'll be paying for the electric myself this time round but i'm not 100% sure if it'll do the job hence why I ask you lovely people.
  8. 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

  11. Hi, getting good yield and effects, but simply failing to get any smell from the buds. Have grown NL, ruderalis indica, ak48 and power africa, got a strawberry blue half way in flower now and hoping to get some smell from the cured bud this time. Growing as SOG under 150w of cfl in 3gal of soil, temps between 20 and 25, humidity I can't get lower than 63% and harvesting after 20% amber trichromes, flushed 10 days or so. Drying for 4 days in 70% humidity then paper bag for a day and curing in jars. Any ideas? Cheers.
  12. Hi, I just took the plunge and purchased one of these <spam removed> Normally I hang my light using 2 easy rollers but bit worried about hanging this using those. It's quite heavy. Can anyone suggest a better way of hanging to ensure its sturdy. This is to be hung in a 1x1x2 Budbox. Thanks
  13. High again guys, My yoyo light hangers just arrived, and considering how simple the idea of them is I'm thinking it's probably just me being retarded... When I pull the black string to the required length, then tighten the bolt again - the black string will still retract? As my reflector hasn't arrived yet I can't test them with it.. The pack came with no instructions, 2 screw in hooks and 2 little hook/bolt's presumably for attaching to the roof and reflector.. Anyone else had this issue? I've maybe been sent faulty ones?
  14. Ok so I've decided to get a room going for my own personal use I'll be using soil and I'm just looking for some help and info, I've got some mates who grow an have offered advice but also I'd like to get an outside opinion on this. I've got myself a walkin closet in my main bedroom I'll attach a pic, it's 5ftx3ft with a door for entry, I've got a lighting unit which is a 400w adjust a wing and a 8" Rhino filter from my brother. I need to know what's the best extractor to put with this. Also I was thinking of running the duckt pipe into the attic above an putting the fan up in there for the outtake? I'll give more details after ive had some help from what seems to be a great forum. Thanx for reading people. O this room is now empty

  17. Hi Guys Sorry if I'm posting to many threads but help My Big Buddah cheese plants have reached the top of my tent, we'll the lights so I've been reading all day and I've bent the tops of the plants in-between the nodes so their at 90 degrees. They are about two weeks into flower and wondering if it is going to affect the main top cola bud production? I'm not new to growing well I've grown for a few years but only just experimenting more with my lady's and first time my plants have stretched that heigh into my light as Last time I just bought a new bigger tent lmao
  18. Hi. I currently have a 600w HPS in a 1m *1m grow area. I have two plants. Is this too much light for 2 plants. Thanks
  19. Hi There, I have just returned from Amsterdam to find that my Power Africa has had a bit of a growth spurt. he got a bit too close to the 600w HPS and as a result she has sum burning. What is the best way to help her recover? Have already raised the light. There is a fair bit of yellowing but not too much crispy-ness to the leaves. Thanks
  20. Amazon Aeroponic 16-Pot System (1.5" Net Pots) I have a few questions about this system and style of growing if anyone has used it before or one like it? 1. Would this 16 plant system be suitable for 16 MJ plants or would two of the 8 plant systems be better? Going straight into flowering from clones approx 9" in height. 2. If the 16 plant system is okay, would running x1 600 Watt HPS be enough or would two be required or perhaps a single 1000 watt HPS? Which would you use?

    My Power Africa on 18 Days Growth 10.5" Tall. 12 " wide
  22. I am currently growing : 1x Power Africa (18") 1x G13 Haze(6") I flipped to flowering yesterday and due to my grow area both plants will now receive 12/12. My thinking is that I should continue to feed the G13 veg nutes for a few weeks. Is this correct? Also I have a selection of flowering nutes but as this is my first grow I don't really know what to use. can someone please guide me. The power Africa is currently consuming 3-4L/feeding: The Nutes I have available are: Advanced nutrients Liquid CarboLoad Advanced Nutrients Big Bud 0-1-3 General Hydroponics Ripen 0-6-5 Canna Terra Flores 2-2-4 Canna PK 13/14 0-13-14 Canna Terra Vega Canna Rhizotonic Canna Coco 2 part Version A Canna Coco 2 part Version B I am growing in soil. I have searched the threads but there is a lot of conflicting info so i'm a little confused. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks
