  1. ... guerrillas Not really a guerrilla grow but all grown by that candle in the sky so thought best in this section as can't see a backyard/windersill section?.. Iv stuck 3x auto in a back garden (not mine) just thought I'd share how they are doing.. I started them in white plastic cups about half filled on the window sill about 10-14days before they went out on the 23/7/19 ..the window only gets around 6hours direct light at the very best but at the time light wasnt great and they looked rather weak &runty for 10days + but they was in minimal soil and like i said didnt get much good light.. I used recycled soil from my indoor grows I reckon about 8/10l containers with drainage holes about 1or 2 inches up from the bottom of the pot around the sides to leave a little res of water just in case ..so I crossed my fingers and left them to it... They Took quite well.. I was surprised ..bare in mind the day I put then out was day before we had high winds and storm... I gave them a dose of fishmix at 5ml /L on the 21st that was the first time I watered them before that we had enough rain to keep them going I also gave them a water on 24th as it's been scorching lately it's a pitty we are losing daylight hours now really but will see how they do ...iv got a few snaps of a few autos done on the windowsill aswel that il upload soon
  2. Hey fellow Auto growers. I came across an intersting situation which I thought I should share with you. I was lucky to get some Dinafem 'Blue Amnesia XXL Automatic seeds from the very wonderful @Dinafem-Mark, and I wasn't disappointed..... the 1st time I grew one I harvested 18.4 ounces of exceptional quality bud.... She was a MONSTER! Naturally, I thought I should grow her again, so this is how things went..... Like always, I sow my seeds directly into Coco, and for this grow, I had my Blue Amnesia along with 3 other Automatics.... Day 1 She started off just like the others (except the Double Glueberry OG) Day 7 I repotted to 25 Litre Airpots in the 3rd week, and here she is on day 20..... Nothing wrong so far. She looks great. By day 29 though, I could see that she (top right) wasn't growing at the pace that the others were..... and by day 40, although the others had started flowering, the Blue Amnesia had not.... I gave her the benefit of the doubt and carried on, I thought that because she's an XXL, maybe she'll take a bit longer in veg. Another week passed by, and still no flowers. Looking back, my previous BA looked like this at day 44........ Plenty of flowering and stretch, as you'd expect by this stage. This current Blue Amnesia was looking different though. Day 48 now...... Looking very healthy, but where's those flowers??? I carried on regardless, and on day 62, looking a bit thirsty, but still NO flowers.... Closer you can see lots of new, vigorous growth, preflowers, and I'm glad to say, no ball bags. OK I thought, she's definitely not a he. Maybe give her some PK 13/14 to kick start her into flowering.... as you might expect, no change. There was only one opton left, maybe she's a Photoperiod? I searched around, and I couldn't find much. Dinafen don't even make a Blue Amnesia Photoperiod, so I decided to get a new tent... a really cheap 1.2 x 1.2m wise, 2m high job, and cobble together some lights and extraction. She needed to be under 12/12 ASAP while the rest of my Autos finished in the old tent on the usuall 20/4 lighting regime. Here she is outside the old tent on day 67..... I was beginning to think she was a bit too big for the new tent. After a long wait for the tent, up it went, and in she went.... day 72 Yup..... Those old LEDs are up at the highest possible point. Not much room for any buds to grow. I was already using the old Photon 126 unit for the main grow.... as supplemental lighting, but now there's one less plant in my main tent, I moved it into my new tent for the Blue Amnesia.... it wasn't enough to cover her with light, so I dug around some more and looked for my old Helios lights...... I think I got them back in 2012/3.... everyone was using HPS.... if you used LED's you'd get lynched online.... everyone telling you they are useless, don't live upto the hype, too expensive etc etc.... Despite all the 'advice' and warnings.... I went with LED Hydroponics..... I don't know why, but I think it had a lot to do with the knowledge that the main Man there has.... he knew his product, and gave the best advice on how to use them. Then I watched open mouthed as a grower called Ledbud, grew a massive Automazar with one. In those days. most growers were getting 3 to 5 ounces from an Auto, Ledbud scored 14 ounces!!! I found my old (2x) Helios 2's and one Helios 6...... the Helios 6 was my beloved first LED..... the one they all tried to shit on. But she showed them.... she showed them how to grow a kilo from 2 Auto Ultimates..... oh yes. I could not believe it...they all fired up first time! Quality gear. I'll save the Helios 2's for later, but the Helios 6 and the Photon 126 are now back together like Jake and Elwood, bathing my Blue Amnesia in pure LED goodness..... 2 days later, day 74 she was already hitting the lights, so I shoved a load of long stakes in and supercropped the fuck out of all those tall stems. .... giving me a nice flat canopy, and about a foot of space..... It wasn't enough, and by day 83, she had grown a forest of stems, all hitting the lights again, so I got that sheet of 5cm metal mesh I used in my last grow, clipped it to some ratchet rope hangers, and lowered it down, click by click by click, tucking all the stems through the mesh, till I got it down to just above the the level of the previous supercroppings.... then I supercropped the shit out of her again..... .... and I gave her a good clear out down below..... .... and here's a view from underneath. You can see some of the first supercroppings, tied to the stakes..... .... and from above the next day (day 84) you can see the ratchet rope hanger, supercropped stems tied down to the mesh with green cable ties and lots of tops all growing upwards again..... .... and YES.... she's flowering!!!!! The Autos in the main tent were just about done, so I moved the lights around and put a massive bank of Skyline LEDs in to give me better coverage over such a high canopy.... Look at the legs on that filthy Bitch! There's no more that a foot of space between the lights and the canopy... .... but the canopy is choc full of bud! That's day 96!!!! about 3½ weeks into flower!!! By day 104, I had moved her back into the (slightly bigger) old tent 1.4m x 1.4m wide, but still just the 2m height. I had reinforced the roof, so it was much easier and safer to load up with more lighting..... why not! I dunno if the tent can take anymore strain.... it's leaning to one side a little and even the reinforced mesh roof is bending. I've had to put this much lighting in because of the lack of height space... reduced spread of light coverage etc. Here's a shot of the amount of space I have, and you'll see what I mean.... The canopy is sort of sloping down as you go into the tent... the stuff at the front is taller, so I have to crawl under the plant, and pop up at the back of the tent to get a better view.... Here's looking back at the left side... ....and the right side.... A sea of colas.... I've just started giving PK13/14, and hope she's got about 4 weeks left to go. Day 116 and all going well. I had to do a plain water pH'd flush just to balance out the medium, and deal with the tip burning. I've been keeping a close check on the run off these past few weeks, the extended veg period... that's a big ask for the medium to stay stable. I'd been keeping the EC around 0.8 for a while now, pH 5.8 to 5.9, same feed, same everything apart from 5 days pf PK13/14.... also at EC0.8, given from day 103 (day 31 bloom) The run off EC was about 0.6-0.7 prior to PK 13/14. During and after PK, I noticed the EC of the run off went upto 0.9-1.0. pH was good however.... 5.8 to 6.0 I gave her a good flush... 24 hours of EC 0.1 rainwater adjusted to pH 5.8. The folowing morning, run off was EC 0.3 pH 6.0, so that evening I made up another EC 0.8 feed like the one before I gave before and after the PK, only with 0.05ml/L less A&B in it...... hopefully she'll be back on track. I think the tip burning and high EC run off was because of my temps.... all that lighting..... 1300W draw and 2600W output from the 4x Skyline 400's, 2x Skyline 100's and the Skyline 800..... that's made my tent a bit on the warm side.... 33°C right now.... but with plenty of air circulation fans. I get a good 10° drop in temps during lights out. Here she is on day 116, 44 days into flowering. The problem with a 73 day veg period, it that you get MONSTERS, so I had to do two phases of major supercropping, and got a mesh screen over her to maximise what little overhead space that I had. A shit load of defoliation under the mesh, and I'm greeted with this as I open the tent.... The mesh screen is 120cm above ground and about a metre above the top of the coco. I really don't have much space.... about 20-30cm between the canopy and the lights, which are at maximum height..... The supercropping has allowed me to create a massive canopy 1.2m squared. I had to be brutal, but as you can see, she responded well.... It was after the first round of supercropping was done to all the main upright stems when I put the mesh screen over, so what you're seeing under the screen is that. The second round of supercropping was done to all the shoots coming off the (1st round of supercropped) stems that grew above the net, and you might see a few green cable ties holding down some of that lot. Are you with me so far??? Anyway, getting a decent pic of the canopy is pretty tricky, I have to crawl under to the back, and pop up between the two lights at the rear. She won't fit in one frame, so this is the area on the left.... .... then the centre region.... ...and the right part..... Then I came up with the idea of using the 'panoramic' function on my phone, and got this...... .... and even then I can't quite fit her all in one frame! The buds are fattening up nicely, and are loading up with a good coating of trichomes..... pistils are beginning to brown off, so she won't be long now..... Unfortunately, the time had come to move home, this gets very complicated so skin up another doob, spark up and enjoy the final stage of this grow! Day 129..... 57 days into bloom, and there's an open house later in the day.... we're moving out and the Landlord wants the place viewable for future tenants. I've been planning for this, and I was ready to go as soon as I finished my wake and bake. Joint out, made another fat one (you know how it goes) and got to work. Here she is then.... ready to start her new adventure..... Lights out is usually 8am, so on the dot, I unhooked all the yoyos and dragged her out of the tent. I had fed her the night before, and so after 12 hours of light, she wasn't excessively heavy. I got one of those plastic dust sheets you can get from DIY shops and wrapped that around her to gather everything up towards the middle. The plant was 1.2m by 1.2m wide so getting her through doorways would be a problem unless I could get her width down to 80cm. I stuck a load of black bin liners together, 6 by 3, with some parcel tape to make a kind of tarpaulin.... over that went, followed by another load of black bags.... all held together with more parcel tape...... What a kinky bitch!!! Anyway, I eased her through the door, lugged her downstairs, staggered outside, and dumped her in the carport. I never throw shit out, so finally I had found a use for the cardboard box for a fridge we bought a couple of years back..... I doused it in orange oil spray, parked the cars around it and got back to getting the tent down for the impending open house later in the afternoon. I'm not gonna lie.... she stank! But all went well, and the rabble came and went without a hitch. I got the plant back inside, and skinned up again, the relief of not getting rumbled was incredible. We got more and more caned, I couldn't be arsed to get the tent, fans and lighting up again for 'lights on' and the next day, we continued getting caned..... it wasn't until 5pm when I decided it was time to free her from her bondage...... when I ripped open the plastic, it was drenched inside! She'd been sweating like a Nun in a cucumber patch. I had planned to use the same method again 3 days later when we had to move out... wrap her up in plastic, get her on a van and back in her tent in the new gaff by lights on...... but after the stress of the open house, I didn't fancy going through all that again, and seeing all that humidity build up in her gimp suit made me think the whole lot would be lost to rot if I continued, so I took drastic action...... Officially day 130 chop.... 58 days after flip. Have a look at that blanket of bud! It was nice and juicy, the trichomes all milky, so why not just finish this grow once and for all..... I had shitloads to do, what with moving house and packing, cleaning etc, so cropping had to be done late at night. I started my usual way, stem by stem, manicuring as I went, and hanging them in perforated cardboard boxes. 3 days went by in a blur, then it was move day. The night before, I did as much manicuring as I could, but by 3am I was still left with a mountain of bud to deal with, so I just started chopping it all down, leaves and all. I got a packing box. lined it with some packing paper, and laid out a load of stems on top. then some more packing paper, and then another layer of stems.... again and again like some kind of ganja lasagne. I squeezed it down and then continued filling the box with the stems that I'd previously cut and hung, layer by layer until the box was stuffed. I taped it up and labelled it 'spices', doused it in orange spray, and put it with all the other boxes for the removal boys to load up in the van. It took about 5 minutes for the whole house to stink of pungent blueberry. 'Oh I wish my house smelled like yours' said one bloke. 'Mmmmm' said another, 'that smells like strong stuff mate'. Then he went on about having to move 10 bin bags full of Peyote once, and how he's seen 'everything'. These Guys were gonna be OK..... I could imagine some companies refusing to move drugs interstate, but this lot were fine about it! Anyway, we made the move, and after everyone had gone, I sat down that night and thought about how I was gonna dry all this wet weed. I was sitting in the large lock up space beside the house.... everything was packed in there... piles of boxes.... and slowly it all came together in my head. I put up the new 1.2m² wide 2m high tent, hung up a filter and 6 inch extraction, and set to work unpacking the 'spice' box. I hung the longer stems in some boxes, and clipped the shorter stems to a few sock hangers. I still had a load of smaller buds and stems to dry, and suddenly remembered I had this hanging net thingy I bought and never used a few years back.... all stashed in a box, somewhere in the piles of boxes in the lock up.... found it quite quickly, and hung it up in the tent, after scattering the last of the bud over it. Being back in Suburbia, I have to be a bit more careful about prying eyes, so I came up with a solution to make the drying set up more stealthy..... Mrs Tee wan't happy about me using her precious screens, but you'd never guess, would you? Especially the bt of paper over the 'Grocell' label Then you open the screens...... ..... and unzip the door...... Some manicured stems and a few with leaves still on. .... and another, all with leaves on. I figure this will slow down the drying process as they wrap around the buds and hold the moisture in a bit longer..... So 2 boxes full, and 3 sock hangers as well. Some of it was manicured.... .... but most of it was leafy AF.... The sock hangers are great, easy to load up, and easy to hang.... I was pleased I remembered I had the drying net. I couldn't be bothered to individually wet manicure all that and brown paper bag it all. I was well knackered from all the moving, so this was a nice lazy solution. I put the extraction on its lowest setting and let them rest for a good while. On day 144, 14 days after the initial chop, I decided to do he final manicuring, weigh up and jar up. I'd probably left it a bit late, they were well dry. It was pretty easy clipping off all the leaves, and eventually I made a couple of nice piles of nugs.... The top pile of larger buds weighed 185g. The bottom pile weighed 246g. This was all the stuff from the boxes and the sock hangers. The next day I went through the stuff on the drying net..... another 91g. The bud has very nice bag appeal.... rock hard nuggets covered in sparkly trichomes...... If you tot up the numbers, you get 522g in total..... 18.4 ounces of bud from one plant.... a Blue Amnesia XXL Automatic that developed into a Photoperiod. Dinafem doesn't sell Blue Amnesia in a Photoperiod, so this is a rarity indeed. And so fucking much of it as well!!!! What do you think @Dinafem-Mark I grew Blue Amnesia Auto 2 grows ago..... this smells the same... pungent Blueberry with a deep rich aroma. Guess how much the Auto gave me in comparison..... 521.6g..... 18.4 ounces...... what an incredible coincidence! So there we have it, this was quite a grow..... I started with 4 Autos in a cardboard box. One became a Siamese twin, and another decided to be a photo. 1378 grams or 48.6 ounces all jarred up! I'm well happy with that! Thank you for joining me and seeing all the bullshit I have to deal with to get some decent smoke, and I hope you have as much success with your grows!
  3. So after a few grows using RQS I decided that I would give Dinafem a go, I'm just finishing a grow that was supposed to be all RQS but due to a couple of dodgy seeds not sprouting, I bought 2 Dinafem seeds (only one grew though, maybe my fault) but the one that did has really impressed me. (2 weeks behind the RQS and the biggest plant) Grow diary here... Anyway, I have bought 4 more seeds and plan on getting these going once the current grow has finished. The seeds are... 1x Critical + 2.0 Autoflowering 1x Haze 2.0 Autoflowering 1x Blue Critical Autoflowering 1x Original Amnesia Autoflowering Set up... Old kids wardrobe (insulated and made slightly bigger) Kingbo 300w led (120w real wattage) Topplanet 300w led (120w real wattage) (Surprised how well these 2 lights have done considering they are cheapies) 2 X modified ceiling led panel lights (4000k) 80 watts Ram mixed flow extraction Rhino 4" filter 2x 4" usb fans Heat mat 600mm X 600mm Fabric pots Soil will be a mixture of pre used (once) canna soil mix / home made compost/perlite / Coco coir. Various canna / biobizz fertilizers. Pic from current grow...it's a bit rag tag but does the job... Hoping the current grow will be finished in the next couple weeks, will get onto these then. ... Watch this space...
  4. Anyone else a fan of gradually repotting auto’s? You read not to but I am a firm believer that if you don’t leave them to settle too much that it doesn’t cause early flower and seems to build a better mass. I’ve started in between 5 and 10 litre final pots but after fair results once looking at the final root ball I’ve been a mix of surprised and disappointed that there was much more potential. This one has went from a seed starter pot, to the middle sized one (both in seed and cutting soil) to its ‘final’ fabric pot in its final medium which was a b and q branded soil with no added nutrients. Also to note she was started on my window sill in a mini propagator then eventually moved outside, never saw a light. ^ This picture from today, the top three are from 8 days ago.
  5. Hey! I'm just wondering has anyone else grown Fastbuds autos? had some gorilla glue and stardawg(5 of each in 12l pots) on the go in coco 2x600watt hps 18/6. It's kind of hard to believe there are only two strains in the tent, some of the plants are humongous and others are short and fat they have all that the same feed etc but 2 of the stardawg especially seem to have vegged for 6/7 weeks and the others are almost ready, needless to say those two are like trees it's just made everything difficult because we don't know what to feed them as we are flushing some and feeding others. Have other people encountered this or could it be something we've done?
  6. please comment on these autos 1st grow

    These are two auots I had outside for a week but now moved back in as it is too cold at present in Northern Scotland. Originally grown under TL5 tube. Do you think these look OK?, they are starting to flower know. I have ordered a 450W LED, so may get them under it next week. Hopefully it may help but if not next grow should work out better. I wonder why there are big 4 inch gaps up the stem between leaves?

  8. Hey guys, this is my auto grow (perpetual) experimenting with something i came across on sinistergram ........ bio char I bought about 30 seeds over the past 2 months and just planting them with a few weeks in between 10 at a time. I'm mixing coco, biochar and worm castings for a 'soil like environment' with a coco way to grow, the biochar houses the bacteria and pulls in food, really don't know what am talking about but i'v done some youtube research n shit, i think biochar is ph up in large amounts so i've just been adding a good handful per pot and inoculating with the worm tea. I bought this drunk (img below) and it said npk 2-5-6, realized it wasn't but it's all good, this stuff is packed with micros, the N is bat shit which is unknowingly good for flower said an oldtimer once, i didn't disagree after testing, Liquid seaweed all good for denser buds with natural pgs. Anyways, my phones lost atm amma get a new one and upload some auto pics in the few days or so. Seeds -- little kushy, ak-47, ak-48, ak-49, ak-420, ak-someonesmom, and some others i forget easy :/ Lights -- 2 400w hps, 1 600w hps, and 2 mars 300w leds that i add as and when, just hang over one plant with the shit footprint. Food -- as above but with added chicken shit pellets (not much), dextrose, and some other shit Grow room -- bedroom size 20-30 plants atm, could get more at a push Trim gets turned into hash n oil (learning but doing all good!) god bless sonnyB

  10. Hey again, I'm looking for some tried, tested, and trusted genetics, I've been looking at dinafem, they seem pretty good. I tried the 'Sweet Deep Grapefruit' strain from a friend of a friend, was at least two years ago but can remember decently was very nice herb, superbly tasty, nice indica high, i'm going to be growing in a 1.2m x 1.2m space under a 600w hps so i'm thinking around four plants, aiming for three ounce or so plus a plant, more the better, two of us and we're heavy stoners, was thinking about doing a few different strains but will settle for 1 I think as I want to really dial in the eviroment as good as possible, and i'm thinking different strains will like different enviroments, seems to be the case with my greenhouse plants anyway, so I'm thinking, what strains would you guys recommend and why?
  11. Hey there, Nice to meet you all and say hello, unfortunately my first post is a bit if a call for help! So got a bit of a multi grow going on and one plant in particular is looking a little unhappy. Group shot we have clockwise from top left, #Dinafem blue Kush auto #1(the unhappy one), Critical auto, blue kush #2 and finally a Dinafem CBD auto. The BK #1 os growing in biobizz allmix as are the other two. BK#2 is in jacks magic with perlite. Alll are at week five from germ and on their second feed of plantmagic grow at 1ml/L they all have been getting until first feed silicone, root stim, maxicrop and Ecothrive Biosys. Stopped the boosters when the feed started. My water is hard, 7.8 to 8.4ph. Temps at 22 root and 27 canopy. 400W mh switched to hps last week Here are some closer photos of the particular plant. I thought that it was nute burn splashed onto the lower leaves when watering but had them out for a closer look in normal light and this one has damaged leaves all around the lower base. Any thought on what deficiency this may be? Started under 400w hps/ Basically the mh was 400w, temps were a little low (22deg C) so moved to 600W dual spec hps. Better temp and more light? Feeding started at week four so two feeds ago at half strength. Apparently they are light feeders? They are now at Thanks for the help. So doesn't look like hardness as I am at the bottom end of the scale.. My water is apparently 272ppm, so not super hard.. PH is 7.2 of water inc nutes. Runoff is 6.8. Tap water is 7.3 out the tap after sitting for 24hrs. I guess I could try a soil pH kit? Could is be lack of nutrients as I left feeding of the bk1 a little late? Also feed recommended at 2-4ml L and I started on 1ml/L? Failing that should I switch to the bloom nutes as they have a much broader spectrum of nutrients. Manganese iron etc I have a feeling its just hungry?
  12. Just wanted to put a few pics of how my plants are looking after 35 days. This is only my 2nd grow and first with autos. Ive been doing my best to follow @blackpoolbouncer excellent diary. Doing this training malarkey is very addictive. Got myself the orange buckets haha. These 5 are in bio-bizz all mix but I’m about to pop 4 more seeds in Clover Multi Purpose. I thought these 5 would be a lot wider but I’m not on that level yet so that’s why I’m planting another 4 seeds. To fill them holes in the tent. Suffered a bit with cal issues (soft water) but I think it’s under control now hopefully. There was a few yellow tips on new growth on two of the plants early on about 21 days but that’s stopped now as well.
  13. Hi guys, Second posts today sorry but having a bit of a panic!! my grown room has low ceiling height from floor to the light is about 102cm, I'm running a skyline 600 led light (300 true watt). Im worried that from the top of the pot to the light is around 75-80cm so once the plants are in and grown then might get too close to the light? whats the closets a plant should get to an led light when budding? I cant really do much apart from trying to find some shorter wider pots for the plants top reduce height and LST them plants from the get go to try and reduce the height and make them wide and bushy. does this sound like it could work? if not I might have to rethink and see if I can possible gain a bit more height which will be a massive pain. thanks
  14. So I asked on here a while ago what feeds to use on autos. The answer was bio bizz. The schedule on google doesn't include heaven. So I experimented and didn't add it. At week 6 there was hardly any buds, compared to the last crop which used heaven, and there was 6 oz easily from 3 plants. This time round it was 5 plants on 4 litre pots. Maybe too small but they seem okay. The results of using the google schedule, advice from here and online and using bio bizz has left white haired, airy buds ( if you can call them that) with no THC. I wouldn't advice anyone starting out to use this schedule found on google, bio bizz or folk on here saying bloom and grow is enough. It's a complete waste of energy and money.

Ive also got some broad beans on the go at the moment as well as some tulips and various other bits in bobs. I was looking at a small parrifin heater but not sure if thats such a good idea with it being of plastic :/ any tips or advice be apricated
  17. I'm pretty inexperienced when it comes to autos. I've done a few in the greenhouse and had a couple of aborted attempts indoors. I help a mate do some autos for his first grow and that went really well. It's about time I had a proper go at it. I'm going to try a run of autos in my outdoor growshed this winter. It can get very cold out there, so 20 -24 hours of light should keep it toasty for the plants. I've had a good look about and settled on 3 Bears OG from Mephisto Genetics. I've heard good things about Mephisto and seen some pics of impressive buds. I probably won't start them for around 6 weeks so any information or experiences on 3 Bears will be useful in the meantime. I bought 7 so germination rates would be particularly interesting. I've had some very poor germ rates with previous auto strains I've tried.
  18. So this is the thing with autos. THEY ARE SHIT! Frequently no mold resistance. If you look at the more experienced growers on the site you will see they have little time for autos and it is largely because they are shite. Controversial but still, shite. The extra ruderalis genes make them a weaker smoke too, not to mention the tiny yields as befits miniature plants. Its incredible the seeds are the same price as photo plants. I know its all about the early smoke and I had decent results in 2012 of all soaking wet years. It was a slugocalypse and just rained and rained. I was surprised to witness Sour 60 seeds I was given by a fellow GG (bred by MDanzig) totally smashing it. There will be the odd one come along. However I really don't think autos are worth it. The smoke from the Sour 60 was way weaker thanKC 36 or Easy sativa. Read a few recent posts abound rotting autos. This is one of the driest summers ever but just wait one or two storms and the stupid crap autos will nearly all be turning to mush.... If you are gonna get out and do prep and take that risk then grow some thoroughbred monsters instead I say. I mean just look at how superior KC 36 and P Maroc are as examples. I am not running any autos this year thank fuck and will not again. Oh I know I will go do a load of back breaking work and take risks just to grow some tiny, weak, mold prone, extortionate abberations of nature. I am too impatient to wait for the sun so I will get some 'automatic weed'... super, semi, ultra, uber, HYPER-autos that are far better than silly old patience... Auto = impatience! Some will say photos grow too big for my garden/ balcony, um Helloooo this is why it is Guerilla Growing because its not in your garden or on your balcony! That is the great benefit of the wild places whether between industrial units and trains tracks or right out in the sticks. So you can go grow some potent monsters.... Thing is Loamy there is literally NOWHERE to grow around here for full size plants. Umm just look properly or widen your territory. But I can't be arsed/too busy. So just 'man up' a bit..., stop wingeing and go do it for fucks sake. Autos = Laziness! The breeders are laughing their tits off. Buy them twice in a season! Buy more to get a higher overall yield! Autos = stupidity! And the prize for being Impatient, Lazy and Stupid is..... 'YOU THINK AUTOS ARE GREAT WHEN THEY ARE ACTUALLY SHIT' ...please re read that last line at least 7 times out loud. .... autos :rofl: What a load of wank...
  19. hi all, Using biobizz all mix and have noticed a green substance on top layer of the soil , is this algae and is it harmful? What causes it? thanks for your help
  20. Hi guys, I’m growing a couple of autos blue mystic and OG Kush in a large Argos plastic greenhouse. There are in soil bio mix light. Looking healthy, But they are only getting about 8 hours a day full sun on the greenhouse. The rest is in the shade ( because of a bloody large oak tree and the house) I think this is why they are slow growers. My OG are on there fourth set of leaves and these are nearly 4 weeks old the blues are on there 3rd set and 3 weeks old. Because these are autos will they start flowering soon? Even though they are still small? Or do the plants have to get to a certain size? Also do you think I would be better staying away from autos with my current set up? Any info would be great thank you
  21. Coming to the end of our first auto grow in coco, just wondering if anyone can give me some tips on how to flush these, I am unable to remove them from the tent. Some of the plants are ready and some are going to need another couple of weeks which is annoying. Thanks in advance!
  22. Is it ok to pick the larger fan leaves that are untuckable off autoflowers in flower?
  23. So here maybe a new idea for you all. ive come across something called the Kratky method. A hydroponics system with is just a bucket filled with water and a basket In the lid filled with perlite. Plant in the middle add nutes to water and grow outside. And it works! People have mentioned that stem rot and things would be likely but from what I’ve seen it works amazing and the buds come out beautiful. gas anyone else done this or is it just a lucky break he had? Also thing for Guerilla Growing purposes it’s amazing. Hang a bucket in a tree with an auto.
  24. Hi Once I get my head round uploading pics to here I'll share what's going on in my cheap greenhouses! I've spent less than £30 on them and less than £40-50 on seeds, soil, fertiliser and pots. In fact the bulk of the cost is pots! I have two auto's and 3 fem in right now, 3 more fem's germing and another 5 waiting to germ once this other 3 have gone into soil. Theres nothing fancy about this at all, just my first go and me muddling through it! It's so interesting reading everyone's journals and seeing the differences and problems people come up against. Excited to see this journal through!
