  1. Hi grower, I have a normal silver lined 80x80 tent but want to upgrade to a 1.2x1.2 or 1.2x2.4... to be honest 1x2x2 would be best but cant seem to find that as a tent measurment.. I want to go white walled but can only find budbox and homebox with them, budbox zips look cheap and nasty and the homebox looks slick but bit on the dearer end , any other alternatives?
  2. Long time lurker, thought I’d join in the fun this coming season and try my hand at some guerrilla growing. I live in a tiny village in the Midlands which is surrounded by farms, crops, fields, small patches of woodland etc, but there are a few issues; 1. HS2 has a major site running through a significant amount of the local land/woodland which obviously rules that area out. It also means workers, security etc are around, so trying to keep well away from that. 2. The vast majority of the rural land is private, with public footpaths through, and there doesn’t seem to be a lot of areas where you are well away from a farm building or house/cottage etc. There isn’t much derelict or disused/overgrown land anywhere (that I know of). 3. The 6-8 decent spots I have found are already being grown on, and the majority last year by the look of them. So obviously trying to keep out of the way of what they have going on as well. So I’ve been out walking/searching a lot over the last few weeks, and using google earth as I go, to try pinpoint some areas of interest to have a look at. But I’m just not finding anything, other than those already occupied. What should I be looking out for? Build ups of nettles that I could hollow? following the river maybe? There’s not really any vast areas that you can walk and disappear into, so really it’s looking for things off the footpaths, maybe bits I can break off etc. Would appreciate hearing how you guys go about finding spots and things you look out for on those scouting missions. Maybe I’m just looking in the wrong places or perhaps not thinking creatively enough. Cheers.
  3. Looking forward to the new Real Gorilla seeds strains coming soon. I should imagine most outdoor growers in the UK especially guerilla growers are waiting for this to drop too. If like me, the suspence is killing you. This thread is for you. If not, then why not. Every grower should have least a couple of RGS in there collection. I was hoping for some pure indicas, and maybe something with a bit of cbd in it for 2021. What you looking for?
  4. Hi lads did someone attempted to wire drivers safely outside the box for better cooling ? Im curious if it can be done safely. My setup involves arctic 64 plus fans, vero 29s and some hlg 240h /2100 b. I have pretty weird box design and would like to use metal shelf rack inside the box as a construction that would allow me to split the box into two separate storeys. first would be veg second bloom. The light isolation would not be an issue, but I want to avoid electrocuting myself so I would like to learn how those cobs are grounded or if only driver needs to be grounded. here is a noobie diagram of what I have and want to do : https://imgur.com/ZvkSX8U I would be very happy if you share your thoughts with me about this, my original thought was using one storey lighted up during the day and other during the night ( with light isolation between them, so one would have light and other darkness.
  5. Hi yall, so basically what the title says is my question, I'm on week 3 or growing and most of my autos are doing great. There is one that is outgrowing all of em but the others are growing at the same rate. But then there are 2 autoflowers that arent growing as fast as the other and I have multiple autos of the same strain and the other ones of the same strain are doing great so I was wondering if I was doing anything wrong but they all get the same amount of water and light so idk what its down to. Just wanted to ask yall as there are many with the expertise that I wish I had lol. Any and every input is appreciated! (strains I have are: Gorilla Glue, Runtz, Skunk, Purple Punch and GSC)
  6. Hi so first of all id like to say I'm new on here, but really glad that I found this forum. So on to my topic, Ive germinated and planted 18 different plants (5 strains) and as of now they are in 3,5l pots. But I've read so much about that the size of the pots can really determine how big the plants get, and my plan is to put them into 7l pots when they are at day 18. As of now the second set of leaves have sprung and are starting to grow. I feel like there are a lot of experts here from which I could benefit, are 18 plants in 7l pots suitable for the 1 square meter tent Ive got or should I sacrifice some of them to let the others have more space? And is a 7l pot too small or is it fine? (they are all autos) As of now they are growing well and seem to have it great but I'm just worried that it will be too crammed in there when they get bigger. Ive also thought about maybe only having 3 of each strain, as I now have 5 of each... I would really love some input!
  7. Kindly asking for your advice and critique, Planning my first build. I live in a house share, I have a small bedroom. For space reasons I sleep in one of those kinda bunk beds that only have the top bed so you get floor space underneath etc. My rough Dimensions for growbox under the bed are 70cm / 2.29 ft length 66cm / 2.16 ft width 80cm / 2.6 ft height I plan to make a frame with wooden battens, plasterboard outside then fill with celotex insulation then plasterboard on the inside and paint white or mylar. I did this with heat and noise isolation in mind. My light will probably be a DIY samsung strip light of 100-130 watt. I will obviously need a carbon filter but seeing some inline fan videos they're bloody jet engines. PC fans and the like are widely used I've seen on micro grows but looking on this forum are regarded as no good. I was thinking of getting an AC Cloudline Infinity 6" so I can run on a lower RPM. again I dont know how loud this will be. And I assume I need to be circulating a certain CFM for the carbon to be effective. My top concerns are Noise and smell, but mostly noise. I work and sleep in this room so If it turns out irritating then it'll be a no go. Before I go any deeper into the project I wanted to know whether I'm being realistic. The annoying this is I won't know until I actually buy all the kit as I have no experience. cheers
  8. Hi guys, new on here.. im trying to work out wether or not it is worth me buying some Fulvic and humic acids in addition to my existing nutes. I’m using terra aquatica tri part- micro bloom and grow, I’ve also got a gold label root exeluator and I’ve got advanced nutrients overdrive for my late flower stage. I’ve read lots of contrasting opinions about the use of humic and fulvic acids and many growers say less is more... sticking to a more basic set up will work well however I also feel that manufactures would bother making the product if it didn’t add something to our arsenals. Anyone on here used them before and had better results compared with a grow previous without using acids. ive for coco coir and perlite in 30l fabric pots. Using 2x small led fan driven lights with a veg and bloom setting and have 1x Mars hydro TSW2000. I’m running a comparison to see the different results in each half of my tent. I have a humidifier and heater in my setup to keep everything exactly where I want it and also have 2 XL co2 grow bags hanging towards the bottom of my tent by an inlet. I’m fairly new to this so any advice would be greatly appreciated. regards
  9. Hi forum lurker for many years, first successful grow, had a couple of previous grows all outdoor which in some way have failed, bad weather...bad choices..all my fault!! anyway i decided to pop 3 seeds, but after my partner whining about the neighbours smelling, i gave 2 to my pal to finish at his. The one i kept was DP Auto Glueberry OG, i think i panicked as weather had been so good and was threating to rain so chopped a little premature. so here goes, not many pics as i never intended to do a diary just chuffed it panned out so well for a novice.. Germinated 3rd May 2018 Wet paper towel method then transfered straight into the final pots 12litre root nurse fabric pots these were put in a temporary greenhouse untill established. Heres the DP auto glueberry OG just poking through.... Not much content as i was mega busy with work and just let them do there thing for first few weeks Others which were gifted to a friend mid grow as smell and neighbour activity Major jump in growth on next as weather picked up crazy end of may/ start of June was taking so much water was unreal. Other strains included, CBD lemon potion and Auto Daquiri Lime, wish i kept that one too as that finished mega in my friends garden but oh well...
  10. I was wondering if somebody can tell me what's wrong with my plants, I am on week 10 super lemon haze auto GHS strain. Been feeding advanced nutrients under 2 x 600 watt, 8 x 12L fabric pots and one 15L autopot (just trying it out) Soil. Past few weeks they have been getting Bloom A and B 1.5ml per litre and last week switched from Big bud to Overdrive 1.5ml per litre aswell. So they're on: Cal-Mag 2.5ml per litre B-52 1.5ml per litre Bloom A n B 1.5ml per litre Overdrive 1.5ml per litre 3 fans plus extractor fan so plenty of airflow. 16/8 light cycle 55% humidity 30 degrees Celsius day temps The leaves at the top have turned yellow and crispy but the buds look and smell absolutely fine. I just want to know why leaves have turned yellow and crispy? Will the buds be fine after harvest? How do I avoid/fix this issue? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance.
  11. Can anyone recommend an easy strain they've been growing that makes consistently good results. As in your go to strain that grows fast and strong but also has a good end product. I know this question is asked alot but there is so much false info online that I want to hear ur real experience with a good strain
  12. 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. I should be collecting some clones tomorrow and I'm gonna be doing a 600w soil grow in a tent. Also have a bag seedling growing of Gsc and a f1durban I thought I'd stick in there too. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
  13. Hi Folks, thanks for dropping in, please do leave comments, whatever? So, The situation with growth is way grand for circumstances, The "mainlined" and topped plants were a slow start but now have thrived after 9 weeks to become tall and bushy. Planted in Biobizz all-mix in 7 Gal fabric pots, plants get watered every 24-36hrs constantly, sometimes sit in 2 inches of runoff overnight, mostly well soaked for the next day ahead. Temps have been very high and pots cool to 22-24C at night but rise to 32C in the shade of noon despite covering pots with netting and reflective sheets to keep sunlight off most of the floor area. Have been adding minimal G & B nutes (by BAC) all along due to understanding all-mix is full-on which seems a good idea, tried and tested formula, but, I have now become aware that I am a bit clueless in regard to it's (all-mix) true intended properties and may need to be very careful with what is added to the feeds, so far the level of G & B feed combined has been at a fluctuating level of between .15 up to .35 of EC (not much?) with .15 of Cal Mag and Silica added, all combined to measure an approximate EC of between .28 and.50, my water is currently filtered to an EC of .02 (yes it's that low with rinsed and new filter)... So... So far no problem, the buds are starting to show their hairs for the last 5 days an all seems good... except, I am concerned about the future feeding, in particular to deliver the correct doses of Nitrogen!! I felt it's good to build up an outdoor plant that gets thrashed by cyclonic winds and needs to endure harsh Spanish sun, grow them well nourished and green, I thought no deficiency should exist, no struggle for the plant when trying to build up at night? (my fancy thinking again) Damn, must run upstairs and erect the darkening covers to block the street light reflections....it's all go Here, a few quick photos, wondering about nodes space and stretching??
  14. Recently got one of these. Couldn't find many reviews beforehand despite it being a 5yr or so old design, so thought I'd post a quick one for reference. Good Poles are pretty strong, despite only being 16mm they are quite thick and click together nicely. No plastic corners or ends. Feels like it can safely hold more than my previous secret jardin dr90 v2.5, but less than a mates Gorilla tent (best tent I've seen in person though the green qubes look pretty good too). Powder coated, which is nice, if completely unnecessary. Tent skin feels pretty durable and seams are well stitched. Reinforced corners. Very well light proofed*. Viewing window. Obviously not needed and quite high up, works for how I grow my plants though.. Kind of dumb really but I'm trying to populate the good section here .. 3 side access (can all be open at once for putting nets in, moving trays, etc). Groundsheet style floor material (appears to be completely water proof and will probably deal with the inevitable odd spill etc better than normal tent material). Probably more easily torn too though.. Bad Layout: *There are only 4 tubed ports, 2 (8") are are high up (intake and outtake for cooltubes, as if anyone uses them anymore), and another (8") is in the roof. The only tubed ports in the lower part of the tent are a 6" and a 2" or so for cables. This means that unless you are using an active intake you have to use the mesh intake panels on either side, which are not remotely light proof. Rendering the impressive overall lightproofing basically pointless. I know some people run their extraction fans out the roof, but most peeps I know use the side ports, and as the 2 side ports on this have zips for access around them, they are rendered useless when you use them to run the extract though.. Zips: Anyone who's had one of the older budboxes probably doesn't anymore, because the zips all broke. At least that was my experience.. I also know a guy who cleared a grow shop out of their returned tents, and they were mostly budboxes with broken zips . I think the zips on this one are larger, but I'm not convinced they are any better. 5 zips is also just unnecessary and a bit of a pain for me, though I can see why some might find the 3 sided access useful, I think closed 1 zip designs are way less prone to breaking. These zips are also absurdly loud. They don't have any rubber-type backing and the zip-teeth material seems to be plastic and consequently the tent is basically a zip-subwoofer. As in I have to spend multiple minutes undoing the main zip, and then I usually leave it open until I've given them their last watering of the day because of the lack of intakes.. Corners: Basically they are quite sharp, and roughly capped. This makes me seriously doubt the durability if taking it down regularly. My previous dr90 was basic, but the smoothly rounded plastic corners meant it lasted nearly 10 years and being rebuilt at least 30 times.. And the zip still works fine.. Mylar: Basic hammertone, not the better diamond mylar you get in most newer premium tents (even some cheaper ones like Mars). Feels pretty robust though, probably more durable than the stuff in many budget tents. Spill tray: For some reason it's designed to be slightly smaller than the tent, so it sits taut a few cm from the walls. Maybe I'm missing why but it only seems to serve as a place for water to go when you miss with your watering can.. Poles: Why black? It's probably only a % or less, but why make a highly reflective tent, and then paint the poles black? Overall Way better tents to be had, especially nowadays. Generally quite basic and uninspired, not much thought into the layout, limiting user applications. Just a simple upgrade on an old design. Absolutely up to the task though, especially if noisy zips aren't a bother, you don't expect to have to rebuild it often, and you have an active intake or grow in a dark room.
  15. Shit on it i was doing some LST and a brand clean snapped off... it was a side branch not main stem but quite high up as branchs go its day 16 for this poor auto amnesia Be honest, be harsh, i know this is bad bur how bad? At the very least its a massive lesson learnt.
  16. So ive had my grow pretty under control until today outdoors its mad hot and tomorrow its meant to be worse, my tents gone from a nice 24 -29 to 35c!!!the plants look okay and ive put a humidifier and opened every bloody window/door to try get some heat disipitation around the tent but id like to see if anyone else has struggled with this and what they did? Im not going to LST OR water or anything during this they got water yesterday and i dont want to burn their roots or stress them anymore than the heat has, should i raise my HPS light to counter this? Its a complete unknown and lesson for me, all help is appreciated!
  17. So ive seen tents with shiny silver and tents with white walls, i couldnt really find much info on how they differ, if anyone has some info or idea to why they are different itd be helpful Thanks
  18. Hi so ive been growing in a closed room, no windows, no way to draw in fresh air other than leaving door open for a bit but i dont like that as it lets light out and is a bit bait but ive found out about c02 bags. Ive seen a lot of hype on the exhale c02 bags however theyre a bit expensive when im just growing 2 plants in a 80x80 tent so ive also found there is other brands on ebay for a tenner, has anyone had experience with other brands or can point me in the right direction with using these? Thanks in advance, everyones been real helpful on here!
  19. Hi, so ive done a lot of reading about 250w hps height and i have got multiple sources saying 2 - 3foot from canopy and the same amount saying 8 - 12 inchs from canopy.. This is the only bit of information i can not find any reason to either of the advised heights, can anyone please shed some light on this?
  20. Whatsup everybody, I have been watching these threads lately and decided to join the community. I have never grown, but with this covid thing i decided to make try my best. I got 6 seeds ( 5 quick one ) and 1 ( royal cheese ) all automatic. I will be experimenting a vertical scrog, with 400W in the middle and all 6 plants around it. For veg time, they will be sitting by the windows and on the roof of my building, since i have access to a hidden area where the sun reaches most of the time. I am living in the last floor so i have windows on the roof. Soon i will be uploading pics to keep you guys updated. Do you guys think that 400W will be enough ? And what is the sun light equivalent to ? Like, 7 hours of sun are better than 12 of 400W ? or how is it linked ? Best regards
  21. Been having a peruse on the site and have come across two CBD strains. I saw that one is identified as Sativa and the other Indica. What is the difference for a CBD rich plant? Without the psychoactive properties, what are we looking for? Any guidance would be grand
  22. Hey Guys and Girls. I am living in Span, Mallorca I have recently purchased 120x120x200cm Cabinet. I Have 5 Seedlings going at the moment. (OG Kush) Past Germination Stage Set tent up with 2 small fans plus fresh air Extractor at the bottom and Outtake Extractor at the top. Potted the seeds in Coco and for the first 7 Nights of Light (NoL) i had them under a house hold 3 bulb lamp i adapted. I then placed 2 new 20w Led Flood Lights i purchased from amazon and have adapted also to go into my grow cabinet. Now they are on there 10 Night of Light. Hours [18h on] [6h off] I have noticed some stretch in them. First week fed them with only Ph Correct water then i have done 2 Feeds with Rhizotonic and Cana Veg mixed in. This is where i am at currently. I have tried to add images however cant seem to do so. Here in these 2 links are the images i have taken so far.. HOPEFULLY THESE LINKS WORK Off site links removed.
  23. Had an amazing grow back in 2018 and used a lot of BioBizz products. Now due to not being able to go out, I have to change location to where I won't be questioned. Reducing the size of my grow as well.. I have a good amount left of Bio Grow and Fish Mix with a drop left of Top Max. I know I'll be buying more, but I am hoping to get away with the remainder of the first two. Still good I hope?? Thanks in advance! Bern
  24. Hi Guys, first post in a while. I smoked for years but just wanting to dabble in growing as for the first time I own property with some outside space and current lockdown restrictions are making if difficult to get any where I live at the minute. so where I’m at is I have a west facing balcony with a 2 small greenhouse in which I already start veg plants for my allotment and grow tomatoes. (60cm wide 30 deep and 120 tall each, Room for 1 more if needed) And iv ordered 5 auto flower northern lights seeds, open to trying 1 or 2 now and saving the rest or using them all.. so my question, what to do now. Looking for advice on germinating, soil/coco, feeding and drying. As I said it’s my first time and it’s outdoors, I’m not looking to invest masses of cash into it until iv got a bit of experience so just wanted the essentials il need to produce half decent smokable buds. thank you for any advice it’s much appreciated as I really am clueless at the minute, my seeds arrive in 3 working days
  25. Hi Guys! I hope that I can get some help in my first grow. I bought my grow setup with following inside: - 1.2x1.2x2m tent - Carbon filter fan kit 4'' - 4 breathable 16L root nurse pots - 600w Lumii Black Light kit - Canna coco natural - Canna a+b I have already planted 4 seeds, 2x white widow, 1x amnesia haze, 1x Skunk XL and they are already seedlings about 3cm long. I ordered few more things which I am waiting for ph meter, digital thermometer, 2x 6'' fans for air circulation. The most important thing that I worry about is temperature, I am still waiting for thermometer to check it but while light is running is literally really hot in the grow tent so I think is too hot and 4'' fan that is connected to carbon filter is not really doing the job. Do you think that 2x 6'' normal fans will help ? At the moment my budget is really low so cannot buy some big expensive fans. In around 2 days I will try to update you guys with exact temperature. I hope you can guys help me. Looking forward to your replies !
