  1. After my two photoperiods are done I would like to switch my lights back to 18/6 however I have two autos that I started under 12/12 to get a head start ready for the next grow. Will I be okay to change the lights immediately back to 18/6 in the tent after chopping the photos or should I change the hours 1 hour per day at a time to not stress the plants ? Thanks !
  2. Hi guys so I have been wondering when you start to count flower? Do you count day 1 from the time u swap the timer to 12/12 or do you wait until stretch has stopped before starting count? Wondering what would give a closer time to the breeder packaging suggests or do you take all of this with a pinch of salt and simply start checking the trichomes around 7 weeks from starting 12/12 (for 8 week strains)
  3. Ok awhile back i was given some Paradise Seeds White Berry to grow out. Due to a series of unfortunate events only 3 of them are alive (1 barely so) This diary will just cover the 12/12 flower period. The ladies are in 6.5 litre pots of all mix and have currently been on 12/12 for about a week. I'll give them another week before giving them a major under trim. And try to update weekly from then. A few pics, Till next week...
  4. Sincerest apologies for the dumb question to follow... I'm looking for a little reassurance! So, due to an unforeseen event I'm forced to break the light schedule of a grow - the grow went 12/12 only yesterday and I need to move the plants and break down the grow for a few hours - I'll have to bring the plants into light around 4 hours early so they went from 18(on)/6(off) to 16(on)/8(off). As I only just turned them yesterday, I reckon I'm unlikely to have an explosion of bollocks... Does that sound right?
  5. Hi! I went away at the weekend and I think my electricity stopped for 12 hours. I was planning on harvesting today and I noticed my timer was 12 hours out. So the plants got full light during the dark hours for 1 / 2 days! Do you think this would have any negative effects on my crops? Or is it so close to harvest now that it does not matter anymore. Thanks for any knowledge!
  6. High all, I am trying to find out what exactly is meant by the plant has to be in TOTAL darkness for 12 hours a day when you switch Photo's into flowering mode. I am new to all this and I hear all the time comments like "even a street light" or a "car light" or a "slight leak through the zip of your tent" etc.....Will completely trash your crop. This then begs the question that those plants grown outdoors recieve moonlight don't they? I used to be a photographer and therefore know how much it takes to make a room completely light proof.....It ain't easy I can tell you. I ask this question because being a newbie I let my indoor plants grow too high and had to raise my grow tent another 3ft. The problem here and now, is although I am trying to keep the light out with bits of cardboard etc for a 12/12 period there is going to be no way I can keep 100% of the light out,.......90-95 Yes,.......100% No. I am going to paste this question somewhere else as I'm not sure where to post things at the moment so please excuse me if you see it twice. Hope you understand. I appreciate any input here as I would be lost with out you guys! Many thanks Cmoon
  7. Right quick question tap water ec is 0.9 and i know people say start bloom at 1.2 ec but my plants been vegging a good 7 weeks from clone and feeding on ionic grow at ec of 2.1 that was including background of 0.9 so 1.2 worth of grow add to tap water ec , now they just starting 3rd week in flower so empty res and filled with water same ec 0.9 added bloom upto 1.9 should i go higher or will that be ok? Thanks barney
  8. Morning, On Monday I switched my Sour Diesel plant to a 12/12 light cycle with a 300w red cfl. This is my first grow and I am wondering what to expect next in the flowering process? So far there has been no change in appearance. The plant is stretching a bit though so surely that's a good sign? The cupboard is nice and dark during the night period. Can anyone advise as to what to expect next and any tips or things to look out for? Cheers, Cessna152
  9. So in the first 3 days of flower my timer was set in 24/7 and caught it after 3 hours so first times were; 7:30pm on-7:30 am off, caught it at 10:38ish something like that anyway I changed it to 11-11 and Everything is going fine it's just its abit of a chore doing things so late at stupid times and what not plus it's cheaper electric for me 12:30-7:30 on economy 7 anyway my question is; Can I just turn them off at 7:30am today give that would have give them a 8 1/2 hour day and would revert my times but would it cause any drastic harm 3 weeks into flower? A quick reply would be lovely if not I could do it tommorow but the sooner the better imo Many thanks james
  10. Hi guys I need advice on running this strain. Should I run it 12/12 from seed? If so what is the best way to go about it, do I put it into its final pot (coco) from the start? How should I go with lighting cfl's to HPS etc, and can I top it even though its in 12/12. Many questions as you can see hope someone is able to help me!
