  1. Hey guys. Hope you're all doing well. I've been reading this great forum loads and particularly Serpents guide to growing autos in soil to help me get started with my first grow. I have got 3 Lemon auto seedlings from Seedsman in a prop in my tent (120x120x60cm) up in the loft now. I cracked the seeds in tap water (ph roughly 7.2-7.4) and then placed them in Root Riot cubes and placed them in my electric prop. After a couple of days, they had popped so I turned on my 1000w Philzon Cree COB LED on the half-beam setting at a distance of 24 inches, 24hr schedule. The following day there was a long root poking through the bottom of the Root Riots so I transplanted them into small pots (the ones that came with my prop - think they're about 0.3L). I sprinkled the Root Riots with myco funghi and filled the pots up with neat BioBizz All-Mix that I lightly sprayed with tap water beforehand. It's now been 6 days since they popped and I am worried that they will not be ready to transplant into their final pots at the 7-10 day mark. They have not seemed to do much for the last few days and the leaves on 2 in particular of them have started to look curled and crispy on the edges. I have been keeping the soil moist with a spray bottle of tap water and at a steady temperature of between 25-27c. I know my tap water ph is a little high, but I read a thread on here by OldTimer1 that mentioned that my soil should buffer this to a more acceptable ph. I do have a bottle of ph-Down on hand in case I need to lower my ph. I have also read that Biobizz All-Mix may be too nutrient-rich for seedlings. Should I go buy some Light-Mix and quickly transplant them into that perhaps? Can any of you esteemed growers give a noob some advice on what I'm doing wrong? Any help would be very much appreciated. Pictures below for reference; This is the healthiest looking of the 3; This one is not looking so great (the wire is a probe for my electric prop); This one is not rooking so good at all now;
  2.

  6. Hello growers, So ive read about using a bubbler for fish tanks to disolve oxygen in a bucket of water and then use that water to water soiled plants to increase uptake of nutrients, has anyone had experience with this process and can bring some knowledge towards the subject squashing any myths or confirming any truths about the subject? Thanks!

    From the album schmoakie photos

    1st day in the sun, has been topped at 10 nodes, is 30 days in veg so far, flowering should begin at end of first week of august. was raised indoors to avoid hostile conditions while recovering from the various trimmings, shall source some liquid potassium soap tomorrow and give a light spray just to deter bugs settling in around the pot, i keep an eye on spray PH.... just in case, try to keep it not much higher than 8.5 in dilution. Shall also be using Propolis for mold resistance and B-Toxin for green caterpillars later on when well blooming. Am expecting every baddie to visit so there will be plenty of preventative spraying and hot oil ready at hand Shall see you good folk soon.
  8. 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.

Pop in occasionally for updates and to see how these babies progress! (If I can figure out pics ) PEACE AND LOVE

  15. 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
  16. Hi all! Please don't hate me, I know there's probably been so many people asking the same question but I have spent DAYS reading through hundreds of threads and still can't make my mind up on soil. This is my first solo grow! I have just started to germinate some autos (Lowryder and Alaskan Purple Auto) so needing to sort the soil asap. I was going to go for Biobizz light with grow & bloom feed however I can't find it in the likes of B&Q or Homebase and an order on Amazon won't arrive in time. So I'm ideally grabbing some bags from Homebase... They're going to be outdoor grows (in my garden, SW UK) and I'm going to be transfering seeds straight into their end pots so have got 15L (I've read that autos don't like being transferred and it actually works better for us this way). However, I understand this makes soil choice trickier as a lot are too heavy for seedlings or have too many nutrients. One thread suggested buying John Innes number 1 and mixing it 50/50 with a normal multipurpose so my question is: 1. Would a 50/50 John Innes number 1 and multi purpose work well for this? 2. What multipurpose would you recommend (must be able to be purchased from Homebase)? 3. Will I need to feed them? I was planning on starting them on bloom & grow about 2 weeks in, should I still do this with these products? Any advice on this will be a massive help, I'm pulling my hair out right now! Thanks in advance all.
  17. Hi gardeners I've dosed for the last two waterings with calmag , temps are higher than I'd like but okay. The rusty spots are still progressing, how many doses should I continue with? Also how long before it might cease progressing? I've cut my biobizz grow down a bit as calmag has some N. I've recently fazed over from rainbutt to tap (the mixture volume slowly worked across) They're starting to swell atm, 3 weeks out..... I hope. Feeding this week Grow 4ml per 6 litre can. Bloom 3ml per litre. Topmax 3ml per litre. Cx Tanlin 4 drops per 6litre can (think its like 1 N). TNC calmag 2ml per litre 4% N. If anyone has any ideas I'd be chuffed to hear. Praise the sun
  18. Planted 1st May in biopots after an overnight soak in tap water. Sprouted 3rd May. Once established they will be going into multi purpose compost. Indoors/outdoors combo for now, will be moving outdoors when vegging.
  19. I have biobizz nutes/soil going with rainwater, any idea if my pH should be good? I've thought of adding about 15% of my hard alkaline tap water to the solution to bring it up slightly to 6.5. From what I can tell rainwater is 5.5ish but Is brought up by the co2 in the air as it falls, I guess I'm gonna need a pH test really. I thought rain water with biobizz nutes and compost would be golden and my pH woes would be over..... but my plants say otherwise (they aren't too bad but need tweaking). Any rainwater users in soil out there got a two pennies worth would be mucho appreciato

  21. Hello, it’s been a while since I’ve grown. Previously I had success with a coco run to waste system system using canna nutes according to their schedule. i want to start a little 1.2 x 1.2 tent with 4 pots ( im thinking 18l) but I’m not up to speed on which soils and nutes to use. Looking at some of the hydro shops they sell several additives and nutrients for their soils with a feeding schedule that looks like they feed with every water. Although reading this site there seems to be people using a soil with just one food and that’s it. Here are my questions:- 1. Which soil is good? 2. Do I need a full nutrient schedule as per canna brand grow guides 3. Should I be feeding on every water 4. is a case of just water every few days? thanks
  22. Sweeet fellas first time gorilla grow! have some purple maroc, DFG and cream Carmel F1 from RGS really want to do the best job that I can do, should I Plant straight into slightly sandy soft soil or make my own? What should I feed the plants and how many times?
  23. hey yall does any body have any advise for us using canna terra nutes in there canna terra professional soil mix doing 6 autos 3x LSD25 BY FASTBUDS & 3x GORILLA GLUE BY FASTBUDS in 7.5lt pots under a 600w hps with a dimmer set to 250w in a 120cmx120cmx200 tent with a big intake fan enviroments pretty perfect to be fair just wanna know what are the best booster to use with the terra range should i grab their canna boost? ive got canna terra vega + flores im also doing a bio bizz grow so ive got bio grow + bloom root juice alg a mic topmax bio bizz ph - /+ would i be able to use any of the bio bizz product with the terra range ? has anyone here done so ? let me know should i ph with the terra as i dont with bio bizz but when i do some kettle water with tap water to get it the right temp to water the plants the ph is at 6.5 im with adjusting anything just normal tap+hot boild water my ph pen sound off ? or im very lucky aha im in a area where my water is very soft thats what its say when ive checked anyway
  24. Right folks, I was using plagron batmix along with biobizz nutes last year with great success. I still have a full pot of old used soil from last years grow. Would it be OK to use this soil for seedlings, as I imagine most of the nutes would have been washed out over the course of the 6 months. Cheers
