  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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??
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. 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
  9. 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!
  10. 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?
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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 !
  17. Hello everyone, Have been absent for a long time but after my first (semi-failed) grow i have started my fourth grow a few months ago. First time using feminized seeds (BF liberty haze, glookies and pineapple chunk) instead of autos and finally growing in a proper tent instead of a stealth pc build. I am using soil (Biobizz light mix), first time properly using nutrients and i am currently on week 8 of the veg period. I have used Biobizz root juice, bio grow, alg-a-mic and molasses until this point in time. I was planning to use Biobizz Top Max and Bio Bloom. After speaking with a few growers and doing some research online i was told to use Advanced nutrients Bud Candy as well with the two previously mentioned nutes. I also have AN Big Bud (wanted to try it in my next grow). Lastly i was gifted a bottle of Atami bloombastic which is apparently very strong. My question is the following: Can i use this two different brands together? For example can I use BB bloom and top max in conjunction with AN Bud candy? Also can i fit Atami Bloombastic in there? (It is stated in the box that it should only be used during week 4-6 (8 week period)) Thank you in advance!
  18. Hi everyone! New to this forum but I’m currently growing two Blue dream autos that are in flower and I can’t remember when I germinated the seeds so I’m struggling to know far along my girls are! I have a picture of the seedlings with there first true leaves on the 30th of June. Any idea how much longer I’ve got till harvest?https://m.imgur.com/a/pA5GoVN
  19. Hey Guys, still out here trying to decide on which grow light to get and i've come across both the mars hydro ts 1000 model and the sp 150 model. Both seem like great value for money and really on the cusp of modern led technology. considering either one of them for my 60 x 60 tent. Linked below: Just wondering are any of you guys currently growing with these lights or how they stack up against similar specced lights such as the Migro lights or @diyleduk?
  20. Hello everybody I’m going for my 1st indoor grow and I’ve chosen to give DWC a go as I’ve always wanted to master hydro. ive got a 1.2 x 1.2 x 1.8m hydrolabs tent...which is bloody lovely to be honest ive got a 600w digital ballast light with parabolic hood Rhino pro carbon filter 125x300 Ruck hi power fan with a digital fan speed controller attached to that 70l oxypot xl reservoir (with two oxygen stones) I’ve got aquarium water heaters to maintain solution temperatures A fan to circulate air inside the tent I’ve gone with canna Aqua Flores and vega , and have canna start, cannazym, rhizotonic, and canna boost accelerator as my nutes....(I’m sure there is better out there in regards to cost and results but I thought I couldn’t go wrong with them for now) i got got some silver bullet roots too just to be safe ive got a PH and EC meter with buffer solution for both ive done a test run and generally my environment has been running at... LIGHTS ON; 24.5 degrees Celsius 50% humidity LIGHTS OFF; 16.5 degrees celcius 50% humidity IM REALLY HAPPY WITH THOSE RESULTS what do u guys and girls think???? I WILL BE TRYING TO WARM THE GROW ROOM UP WHEN THE LIGHTS ARE OFF DURING THE 1ST 3 WEEKS OF FLOWER THOUGH...AS IM AWARE THAT THIS CAN PREVENT UNNECESSARY STRETCHING OF THE PLANTS DURING THAT PERIOD...would anyone be able to confirm this to be true??? Just going off previous research on that one but thought it might be a valuable tip to any grower if it’s true...? my main area of concern is the PPM of my local rap water... an R/o system is a no go for now but if all goes well I will invest in one for future grows... anyway... the PPM of my rap water is 212ppm (after I’ve put it through a filter jug)... is this fine for seedlings? Baring in mind I wanted to add some cannastart to the seedling solution... And once I start early stages of veg...will this ppm level have too much of an affect to the amount of nutes I can add at one time? Or am I just worrying about nothing? My ph is 6.5 so I will probably need to adjust with ph down to get to around 5.7-5.8 and I’m aware that this will bump my ppm levels up too...? sorry for for the essay! And cheers for reading! Experts please feed me with ur knowledge Cheers
  21. So I have a Bay 6 XL loft tent running a Telos-0008 and only currently have a 4" extraction fan sucking through a Ox carbon filter. I am looking to upgrade my ventilation system and having a intake fan paired with a fan speed controller to keep the environment dialled in. I am considering venting into a box buried underneath the shed filled with woodchips and some kind of oil or smell neutraliser, as im paranoid that my Sticky Beast Autos are going to stink to high heaven come flower ripening time and my neighbours are going to suss me out. Has anyone ever done something like this before ? Im hoping that if I rig it up properly and get a decent fan system inside the tent and outside in the shed venting down the same ducting into the box and then out into the underneath of the shed I can kill a lot of the odour and stay stealth - thoughts please?
  22. Ok so i am growing 4 autos atm , i am growing more or less by the plant magic schedule for organics. Now that being said they are for photoperiod time lines, one my plants has just started pre flowering and i am still dosing grow because i heard / read that a mistake most make is feeding bloom soon as see pre flowers when in fact you should carry on with the grow nutes until most stretching stops ( around 2 weeks after pre flower?) I was just wondering once i start on the bloom how long shall i feed it with autos? Since in 2 weeks time my plants be 5-6 weeks old .... The grow scedual says dose bloom until week nine of flowering but obviously 9 weeks from now i should already be chopped and curing / smoking would you say i feed bloom until the leaves start yellowing off with age then stop bloom and week flush or would that be too soon / late ? Are there any visual cues i should look for to know its time to stop using the nutes ? Since my 4 seeds are different strains and will have different growth rates / lifespans a visual que to stop using nutes will be handy if there is one ? Maybe when most hairs are brownish stop dosing , or trinchcomes become cloudy stop etc etc I know ive still got a long way to go to be worrying about it but just thought id ask now rather than panic later haha Edit- also my light scedual is currently 20 / 4 should i go 24/7 through out budding or stay times i am already?
  23. So how did you guys get into growing in the great outdoors? What made you come up with the idea? Why did you start? Did you make any vital mistakes? What strain? How many plants? What was your yield? What year did you start? Just curious Provocateur.
  24. I found someones plot today I'm sure! I was out "walking my invisible dog" when I came across it. There was about 30 holes all dug out. I searched the area and found a spade, some bags of manure, chicken wire and half a bottle of Lucozade lol. If this is a guerilla grower preparing for this season then I'm not sure what to do? I personally think this area is way too easy to come across and wouldn't bother if it was me. Advice lads?? Provocateur.
  25. So I’m currently setting up my grow room, it’s a 2.0m(L)x 1.2m(W)x 2.0m(H) grow tent and I have 2 600watt gravitas. I’m going to be growing mainly stardawg but I’m unsure of how many plants and what size pots I should use. I was thinking 10 plants all in 10 litre pots?? Anybody know if this would work if so what would it yield and if not what else should I do?
