  1. Time for me to start a diary of my first grow. Firstly I want to thank @Dinafem-Markfor accepting a complete novice like me in this Seeds4Diary - really appreciate the seeds and hope I do it justice. I also want to thank everyone who's helped me get my grow room set up and with the numerous questions I've asked along the way Grow Room 75 x 75 x 130 Cultilab tent Lumatek Attis 200w LED 5" RVK & CarboAir CF extraction and passive intake Tube heater on an Inkbird 306T Fan Grow Details 1 x White Widow XXL Auto 1 x Cheese XXL Auto 11L pots H&G Bat Mix Old Timers Grow & Bloom ---------------------------------------------------------------- 24/6/20 (5 days ago) I planted the seeds in Jiffy 7 plugs and put them in my propagator in the tent lights off. Temps were 25-30 and RH around 70 which I tried to maintain. 26/6/20 (3 days ago) This is where I ran into my first problem. You can see in the pic below the WW's tap root was coming out the top of the Jiffy, not good! After seeking help I very carefully dug it out and re-orientated it tap root down. I suspect I didn't plant the seed deep enough which caused this so my first mistake and probably not my last. 27/6/20 (2 days ago) The Cheese has only gone and done the same thing (no pic) - tap root coming out the top. Again I got the tweezers out and re-orientated it carefully. This was more difficult than the WW as the soil was more compacted. At this stage the WW had broke the surface and was looking good although the seed shell was clinging on to one of the leaves. Luckily I had read about this in other posts so knew what to do. Lights switched on at this point 40% (80w) and around 40cm away. Today, Monday 29/6/20 The WW looks to be unaffected by the re-orientation and appears to be progressing well but the Cheese is still to break through. You can just see it in the middle of the Jiffy where it's slightly exposed. I'm a little worried I've stressed it when digging it out but I think it's worth giving it a couple more days before abandoning hope and reaching for another seed. The prop lid is off in this pic but I've got it sitting over only the Cheese to keep humidity up leaving the WW uncovered, if that makes sense. That's it for now, hopefully at my next update the Cheese will have made an appearance and I can call it day 1. All help and thoughts are appreciated
  2. Hi there @diyleduk I would like to register my interest in the fantastic competition being run by yourselves. Very generous of you guys. I have only very recently just started "My first diary". Where I am covering my experience of growing out some homemade beans. I do currently flower using hps and CMH, though I expect to see my new Lumatek Zeus 600w pro, supplied by you, arrive very shortly. If it is OK with you you, I will continue my diary "My first diary" here. And I will post a link here to each update. Please let me know if that's cool or not. Thanks
  3. Welcome growers.. This is my micro grow in the shed stealth style! (Attempt) I've been growing outdoors in the UK for the last 5 years with only a cabinet to get my seedlings going. Done the odd seed to harvest with CFLs but nothing special. Then I came across the QX-75 LED board from @diyleduk which looked made to measure for my cabinet and ideal for temps being in the shed. Never using an led before excited to get going was a understatement. Yesterday I received my QX-75 LED through the door from @diyleduk and it's obvious these lights are miles above anything iv seen before for light output to wattage! On full power 75w is crazy bright! Couldn't believe how bright it was. Would like to say a massive thank you to Adam for sorting it out! The light QX-75 Each QX board has 128 leds in total. 120x LM301H (3500k) 6x LM351H (660nm deep red) 2x (730nm far red) And looks pretty The driver has a nice length of cable to reach outside my cabinet and the dimmer switch is a very easy way to adjust wattage The cabinet I decided the cabinet needed upgrading ready for the new light to give me the best chance possible.. Dimensions, 35x35x80cm I put a mini tube heater in and usb fan to help control temps. Then decided I know longer like access from the side. Swapped set up around so I could get to the plants from the front. Both pc fans have acoustic ducting attached. The bottom one bringing in air through the bottom of the shed The top one is connected to my 4" rvk fan that's boxed in for silence sitting on a rhino carbon filter. I then insulted the cabinet.. I put the inkbird probe under shade from the light. Attached a wac1 step controller to my 4" rvk to reduce noise further. Then yesterday I got to do the exciting part.. getting the light in and set up

  5. Hey guys, first time posting here, and first time growing. After reading @Serpent and @blackpoolbouncer auot guides/diaries I have decided to give it a go myself. As a first timer I have alot of questions etc so please bare with me. My setup is pretty basic, dr80 tent, Spider Farmer Sf-2000, 6" CF. Im using BioBizz all mix in 10L pots, and will be using BB Fish Mix and Bloom. Will be doing 3 plants to start I think. I have just soaked the seeds for 36 hours and planted them in pre soaked 0.5l pots last night and they are now in the airing cupboard, hoping they break through over the next few days. First question, once they pop their heads up shoudl I put them straight under 24hr light? And with regards to watering at this early stage is it best just to mist them? Thanks for reading, and I'm sure these questions have been asked hundreds of times, so thanks for anyone taking the time out to reply. I will update this as I go along, and will try and post some pics, although I use an iphone and I think I read on here somewhere that it wasnt a good idea to take pics with an iphone? Cheers Steinos

  8. Hello again all! Getting back into growing again after around 4/5 years of buying due to house move etc. I know this is the lighting section but these questions etc will help decide the light system I go for due to the size of the tent. So instead of soil, this time I’m going with either a Bottom Fed or DWC Kit by Alien or IWS) The kits I have narrowed down to so far are either these: 8 Pot XL EasyFeed System 30L system by Alien EasyFeed IWS 8- Pot R-DWC Pro Undercurrent System - With 25mm IWS Flexi Pipe 4 Pot XL EasyFeed System 30L system by Alien EasyFeed ccvv IWS 4-Pot R-DWC Pro Undercurrent System - With 25mm IWS Flexi Pipe Now this brings me to the lighting/tent size. As you can see I would need a 2m x 1m for the the 8-pot systems or a 1.2m x 1.2m for the 4-pot system (I think?) Lighting wise, in the past I have used from cheap 400w magnetic ballasts to 2 x digital Lumatek ballasts with HPS snd MH bulbs. This time it’s CHM 315w or LED (LED prob from @diyleduk on here or a recommended pre built LED from a good supplier). In the 2 x 1m I think I would struggle with just 2 x 315m CMH or 2 x 400w LED? From my old calculations and research I could really do with 2 x 600w min for that space? In the 1.2m x 1.2 or 1.0m X 1.0m I could get away with either 1 x CMH 315w or 1 x 600w LED? What do you think regarding the 8 pot system and lighting intentions?

  10. Hi everyone, I've been a bit of a lurker for a while and thought it best I leave a diary, or at least outline how my first attempt is going! You'll have to excuse me as I've been a bit lacklustre in terms of keeping everything up to date and I still haven't figured out how to upload pics But I'm now on day 18 since germ so here's my private notes so far: CITY SEEDS KOSHER KUSH GROW Equipment: Tent 60x60x140cm Mars Hydro TS1000 LED 4" rhino/ram filter+fan combo 12"oscillating fan 1' tube heater for lights off Plant level: 9 litre fabric pots Biobizz light mix+all mix Biobizz rootjuice/grow/bloom/topmax Days 1-10 I followed @Serpent how to grow autos in soil guide and it helped massively so shoutout to you buddy Day 1: 23/03 Germinated: Damp paper towel in ziplock (closed) in airing cupboard Day 3: 25/03 TAPROOT 3-5mm Into solo cups (Biobizz light mix - pre wetted) covered with cup, sprayed with water to increase humidity until soil break In airing cupboard Day 4: 26/03 (around 21hrs later) SOIL BREAK Temps 24-29 humid 35-55 Into tent, kept moist, under 24hr lighting. Still covered with sprayed cups, Day 5 Still moist Temp: 27 Humid: 40% Using wet shirt to increase humidity Not much progress - hoping ^RH% will help Day 6 Temp 27-29 Humid around 65% Given very light watering with spray bottle but leaves starting to fade?

Humid 45-55 Raised light to highest point and lowered intensity to 50% (as advised by Mars Hydro) Temps concerning but extraction on full blast Noticed a couple vaguely rusty spots One minuscule tear/hole in a leaf I know my temps and humidity are moving mad but it's dependent on the time of day and I'm struggling to regulate them both It's just nice to be able to share my progress with like-minded enthusiasts and to know there's a vast wealth of information and knowledge to take in so thanks for stopping by and hope you've enjoyed the long read. Pop in occasionally for updates and to see how these babies progress! (If I can figure out pics ) PEACE AND LOVE
  11. I am doing my first Summer loft tent grow for the first time in yonks (ever?) with the help of @diyleduk Scope 275 v2
  12. I originally joined UK420 back in 2006, I think. Still living at home and struggling to grow outdoors. A lot has changed since then but a reassuring constant has been my love for cannabis. Anyway, what better time to start an indoor grow than during an international pandemic? No one comes near you. Packages left at the door. No contact with outsiders, no family or friends coming round. So that being said I have decided to convert a small cupboard space. Ordered some basic items and more importantly, ordered a mix of auto-flower strains. It's so affordable to buy seeds these days! Single seeds, feminised, auto-flowering! Amazing. I have (all feminised): Sour Diesel Auto x 1 White Widow Auto x 1 Bubblegum Auto x 1 Sweety Automatic (aka Sweet Tooth Auto) x 3 Added for free - Super Lemon Haze and Dr Widow With my limited space, I think I'll start with the 3 Sweet Tooth. I'll be using soil and growing under LED. I think the 75W won't be powerful enough after doing some research on here...I'm open to replacing it for a higher-powered version 300/350W equivalent. Unfortunately, the 75W is due to arrive today. I'll upload some images shortly of my grow space Here goes nothing!

  15. Hi this is my first post I'm new to the game, like most people I'm sick of spending bare dollar so decided I want to grow my own stuff I want to jump straight into growing autos hydroponically with the DWC method as it seems to be more beginner friendly, however it does appear to cost slightly more but I'm sure it's worth the initial investment! Things intend to purchase: (please advise me if I could change something to make it better) - x2 Pre made DWC buckets with air pumps + stones from eBay. - x1 spare bucket (for regular cleaning) - FloraMicro/Grow/Bloom all 1L bottles. - VIPARSPECTRA Full Spectrum 300W - Grow tent - Air fan - Canna AQUA Clay pebbles for growing medium - x2 rockwool cubes - PH / PPM tester - Water temp tester - x2 Auto seeds I get how the system all works... what gets me with DWCs is the nutrients, I think I'm kind of understanding however I have a few questions if anybody knows some may be daft but we all start somewhere gimme chance 1) Do you put nutrients in the water once you've put your seedling into the rockwool and into the clay pebbles? If so how much is recommended for an auto plant? 2) When water levels drop should I fill it with just tap water and add nutrients every few days or when I clean the buckets every 10 days? Or should I fill it with both water and nutrients and keep in the PH range of 5.5 - 6.5 I'm aiming for a constant 5.8 as I believe this is a perfect ph for hydros? 3) How regularly should you put nutrients into the water? 4) Should I use an automatic water heater? Or would this cause more harm than good? The temp should be between 15 and 20 degrees celsius right? 5) How would I know when to turn the lights to 12/12? 6) Recommendations for 2 auto seeds with my 300w LED preferably two different types? A 50/50 mix ideally a social high not one to knock me out 7) Finally what size grow tent for two autos on 300w LED? I wasn't too sure where to put this so if it's in the wrong section I apologise I went completely off nutrients and onto other shit, I'm pretty baked haha Cheers
  16. So basically I’ve got a 1.2m tent and recently got a small 90x60x90 tent as a propagation/veg tent. Now after trying to fit 10 plants in it in even 6.5l pots is a struggle so I’ve accepted it’s too small for its purpose, my mistake I can use the set up as a mother tent anyway which I’m excited about. Anyway going forward I have miraculously found a 120x60x120 that fits the bill perfectly (I will be measuring a space and trying it first tho) I ha be a 2ft 4 way t5 light in the small tent and was wondering if you’ve got some different options of LED lights to look at? Have no idea about them so whatever you think would be a good veg light for a 1.2x0.60 footprint. Thanks!

  18. Hi,If anyone With experience could give me some advise id be very grateful.Ive got 4 girls on the grow which are 7 weeks from seed which ive just switched into flower now.I potted them from seed straight into canna terra pro and plants developed well with no problems apart from a little bit of nitrogen toxicity which my plants grew out of.Im on week 7 and have not added any any extra nutrients of any kind. Ive literally just watered at a ph of 6.3, using real lemon juice to lower ph from my tap water.I live in a soft water area in uk so water is decent and i let chlorine evaporate for 24hr before watering.anyway, i’ll get to the point.....I want to stay organic so decided to buy these products to add to my plants but not sure on dosages etc.Guanokalong bat guano NPK 1.10.1ecothrive charge NPK 3.2.3Bone meal NPK 3.9.0 / calciumEpsom saltsWorm castingsGuanokalong palm tree ashes NPK 0.3.14Would this be too hot as a tea or could i bubble some in tea and top dress the rest to be watered in ?im using the kingbo 2000W led light ans have heard that led’s such the calmag out of your plants. Im also noticing purple veins travelling through the plant too so not sure what to do as i dont want to use chemicals like calmag.my growing conditions are good.Room temperature day time is approx 22•cRH / 55%....night time temp 18•c RH / 60 - 65 %but ive bought a dehumidifier to control it better.If anyone could help me id be very appreciative and can also add pictures but because of the led purples lighting its hard to see properly.Any feedback would be much appreciated, thanks
  19. hi guys, first grow, thanks for clicking this site has already helped so so much but im struggling i have three auto white widows, i soaked my seeds 36 hours, planted in 1ltrs on monday and under light one seed from the start had thrived the other two not at all! two of them look like they havent grown at all and im worried. ive got a 600w led light on, 45 cm from plants i struggled a bit with humidity, i thought it was that, it was 30% monday and tuesday, i have a humidifier now and its up to 70 but they arent looking any better id be greateful for any advice, already have a few things i know ill do differently next time.
  20. I currently grow in a loft. Temps can get obscene during the winter and the summer. Loft growing is an Extreme sport I will say!!! Ive used 100mm kingspan between all joists but temps get too high and i think my girls are suffering, I'll post some pics later when its drink time. Girls flower during our nighttime so the temps are cooler however, the girls nighttime (our day time) can be very hot. I used aircon last year but to not much use, it only reduced it down a couple of degrees and burnt a massive hole in my pocket, i was nearly chomping through 6kw per hour everyday.....soon adds up!!! Im toying with the idea of going LED - I like the maxibright 600w daylight led however is too big for my current 1x2x2 tent, it has a footprint of 1.1m squared. I may upgrade to a 1.2 x 2.4m tent but I was thinking I might ditch the tent and swap so my girls flower during our daytime so I can make use of the excess heat with my led and the girls would be cooler at night time. If i ditch the tent and just use the loft space, there's more room for air circulation and more head height. Thinking of lights on at 9am and off at 9pm. This is a summer only fix, in winter, i would return to the safety of my tent and heater
  21. Diy led lights (F series strips) T his is a diy thread, for the diy guys, to diy a diy led grow light..Its the cheapest way to get a decent led light. Im not going to get too deep here. This is a basic guide with parts list with product codes to google, rather than a how to build it.. “what wattage do I need for my space” Strips. The Samsung f series strip. This features 144 Lm561C S6 bin leds. Driving them at the currents listed in the parts lists will achieve 2.2-2.35 ish µMol/j at system level. Warning! Don’t be fooled by the cheaper boards/strips.Genuine strips have the Samsung logo and are fully CE compliant. Heres the parts numbers for the strips.Google will give you the supplier. 3000K SI-B8V521560WW 3500K SI-B8U521560WW 4000K SI-B8T521560WW 3000k and 3500k will do veg and flower for weed, just buy whatever’s in stock. 4000k might be useful for mums or lettuce, micro greens etc Strips cost £28 each or you can get a discount on ten+ (including vat which they will add at the checkout) Drivers are easy to find, again just google the part number in the lists. TME is the best place to get them. Ill put rough prices so you know whats the right price to pay. heatsinks you want U channel aluminium. 1 3/4” wide 1” high and 590mm long. This is a very common size and easy to get. Framework you want 1/2” by 1” Unequal aluminium angle(Or whatever you can get. staiir nosing work great). For the length you need it a little smaller than your tent. So 60cm tent get 40cm angle. 1.2m tent get 1m angle. Just get it as big as possible.If your tent is 1.2m or bigger build it in two lights. Max spread is the game here. More points/angles of light over the area = “penetration”. The metal work you can buy cut to order online, or a local shop will do you it cheaper. Heat sinks cost around £4-5 each and framework is a couple quid. All the wiring/wagos/bolts ect be found easy on shitbay/scamazon. Or any local electrics shop. Make sure you get solid core wire. And your power cable is a 10amp one. Are you still here? Heres a chart, I think it makes sense Heres a list just in-case it doesn't.

Mount the strips last so you don’t damage them. Get the tape lined up right before sticking it as it WILL NOT come off once on. Wiring is the only tricky bit. Its a parallel wired system. All negatives from the strips go the the negative on the driver and all positives from the strips go to the positive on the driver. Here a quick paint wiring diagram, to show how to do it. I don’t mind helping out, if you have a question, just post it on the thread. It is a low voltage system (47V) but still be careful, take time stripping wires right, cable tie them to the frame. If you can see any exposed core you have fucked it, try again. DISCLAIMER- key accepts no responsibility for damage caused to persons, or property. This is not electrical advise, just a parts guide.
