  1. Hi, has anyone bought and grown any of the discount female autos from "female seeds uk" ? They seem to good to be true for 2.50 each but they have decent reviews etc..
  2. How's everybody doing on my favourite forum on the Internet ?! I just can't stay away! After I harvested my last run at the end of June (Check it out), I said I'd put everything into storage and enjoy my work. Lo and behold, much to the disappointment of the missus. I'm back for more, setting up the groom as we speak.. Now, I'm sure this diary will likely receive less attention than the last, so it will probably be a little less hands on, weekly posts, maybe. The Fast and The Sweet Seeds Sweet Seeds - Black Devil (Should I tag an SS rep ?) Fastbuds - Gelato Zkittles Purple Lemonade They're all autos as I can't guarantee a stable, dark environment yet but I got some great photo freebies from Attitude as well.. The time shall come, my pretties.. I'm 'upgrading' extraction by cutting a circle in some plasterboard and taping the ducting 'through', the board has some old lace curtain over the window-side and the board shall be fastened to the window void. Very much a bodge job, but more stealthy than last time and hopefully will stop the weather outside from affecting the enviro too much. (Will post pics if people want them). For now, I'll be washing out pots, sandwiching seeds between damp kitchen roll and taping up pinholes in the tent. Stay tuned for more updates later on in the week! (If I get my head down). PEACE AND LOVE Flav
  3. Hey Guys So my first grow is done and dusted. Harvested a good amount and although I’m disappointed in myself for the dry and cure (so far) I’m happy with the way my first grow went. I didn’t find this site until a few weeks into my first grow and it’s been so much help so far. with that in mind I thought I’d start a diary this time. My plan is to grow 4 -6 plants depending on how big they get. My Set Up 1x1x2m tent 6” AC infinity Fan 2 x Spider Farmer SF 2000s fans, humidifier and dehumidifier growing in coco in pots Dutch Pro nutrients probably forgotten something so feel free to ask. Seeds White label - Super Skunk RQS - Northern Lights @brock1 - Ultimate Fems Expert Seeds - Blue Cheese I’ve put 2 of each in water and waited for them to drop. ive then put them in kitchen towel , put between 2 plants and put them on a heat mat . The ExpertSeeds seeds are not going to crack. I already know that but thought I’d try again. I ordered 5 blue cheese autos from them and they sent me 10. so far I’ve used 7 including the ones I’m trying to germinate now and so far only 1 has ever germinated and that died 2 days later. Any one else ordered from Expert Seeds with the same experience? Anyway so far both of @brock1 ultimate fems have cracked, and one super skunk. The super skunk is in the middle and has grown so fast , it’s only day 2 in the ground. 1 Ultimate has sprouted and the other is still in the ground. the rest remain in the kitchen towel and hopefully in the next day or so I’ll be seeing them. I plan to plant 6 if enough germinate and then maybe go down to 4 if the space gets to cramped, at which point I’ll pick the best looking 4 and go with them
  4. Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I'm self isolating from other parts of this forum and hopefully doing something less boring instead... My plan is to use a Raspberry Pi to help me with my grow. Sure, it's not necessary but we each have our peculiarities. Because it's a big project I'll be splitting it down into separate, numbered threads. As far as I can, I'll be using standard stuff and not the fly by night software and hardware. I will also be making use of low tech where I can. I hope to be finished by Christmas. Feel free to contribute! Kaydog ================================ #1a - RPi to a monitor My automation project needs a monitor, preferably touch screen and all that fandanglygoogly stuff. Having gone down many costly dead ends, this worked for me: Googling "how do I connect an android tablet to my raspberry pi", I followed these instructions- Add a vnc connection: install tightvncserver to rpi install real vnc viewer for android by real vnc and so I was able to resurrect a very old, slow touch screen Samsung tablet that nobody wanted into a decent monitor. Of course, I could just spend £60 on an official monitor - which likely will happen.
  5. I have a 60x60x90cm propagation tent which will soon be redundant. Is it possible to do a SOG with 16-20 autos with that height (I'm using blurple until diyled gets stock). What d'ya reckon? TIA
  6. 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
  7. Hi all, I hope all your grows are doing well. I have a question regarding feeding Auto plants. Taking into consideration that Autos don't get anywhere as big as normal plants How much and how often are you supposed to feed them. I have my 5 plants in 11l Pots in plant magic soil. They have started to flower, so I am feeding them plant magic bloom. The bottle says 3-5ml per litre but I have only fed them 1-1.5ml per litre once per week. They have only had 1 feed so far of Plant magic bloom, as I don't want to get nute burn, and I am guessing those recommendations on the bottle are for normal plants not auto's. can someone please enlighten as to how much and how often Auto's should be fed, and when to start using Plant magic Bloom Boost. I did also use Plant Magic Grow in veg stage, once again, less than the bottle recommends. Thanks G
  8. Green Crack leaves turning yellow

  9. Just a quick bit of advice please all. I've got my 2 emergency outdoor autos and they're looking ok so far and about 4 weeks or so into flower. The problem is I only left them is smaller spots smaller pots for stealth but then larger one is needing feeding every day. Is it too late to transplant and if not how to best minimise shock
  10. 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!
  11. Hi all, I'm starting a 5 plant scrog in the coming weeks and I need some advice from experienced growers. If I talk you through my set up can you let me know your thoughts please? It would be much appreciated. I intend to do a very thorough diary and would like to make this a successful grow. Tent - 1.5 x 1.5 x 1.8 lighting - 1 or 2 600w hps (dimmable 250w,400,600w, 660w) Seeds - bruce banner (shortish+bushy) Plant number - 5 (12 litre fabric pots) Medium - Coca coir pro + Nuts - Cana A + B / Cana Calmag Air Extraction - 8inch fan/filter Airflow - 1x clip fan + 1 oscillating fan Temp control - inkbird duel temp controller Training - topping / defoiliation So If I list my questions to mae things a little easier. 1. Would you recommend 2 lights? And if so would you run them both at 400w to total 800w or 600w each to total 1200w. 2. The seeds have to go straight in the tent once germinated. what lighting would you recommend for the first weeks of seedling growth? 3. I was going to scrog them over a 1.2 x 1.2 net in the tent, or would you recommend using the full tent. Would you adjust the lighting for the 2 options? 4. Pot size/lighting - what size pots would be best for the size and lighting? I plan on topping twice before flipping to 12/12. Im using fabric pots and planned on going from 1 litre to 4 litre then up to 12 litre pots. Thanks in advance everybody much appreciated. You will be noted in my grow diary. I'll give you a link once it starts! Happy growing.
  12. I'm sure many of you have experimented on different mediums. I brought a few blueberry autoflower seeds. Dont have the space or bollocks to grow loads at the same time. Currently have 4 on the go, 3 autoflowers and 1 photoperiod (bonsai mum here we come) This one is my summer outdoor grow. A month old hidden amongst my chilli plants. Blueberry auto in soil

  14. The quick one - getting a suntan

    From the album First grow - The Quick One

    Decided that the fan noise was too annoying to sleep with as it now has to be on full. Moved my tent to the shed and tomorrow my mother plant should be too. Letting the girl get some natural sunlight today before going back inside.

  16. Im not exactly new but ive also had a long time off. I am completely new to autos though. Basically its important to me to know exactly how long an auto takes from planting to harvesting, and I'm seeing a lot of confusing terms. my question is... How do i know how long autos take, a strain guide might say "flowering 8-9 weeks", or they might say "full life cycle 8-9 weeks" or "blooming stage 55 days" and so on, etc etc etc. I'm confused because they mention flowering or blooming does that mean, for example, a plant might VEG for how ever long, and then, BLOOM for "55 days". How long is veg, How long is bloom with autos, how long is ALL of it? How do i find out how long it takes to PLANT it and HARVEST it? Im sorry if im not making sense, I'm just confused by the difference in terminology I've seen while browsing online.

    From the album Blueberry auto soil outdoors

    Growing amongst my chillis Unlike the chillis this is in soil. Have a few seeds so going to test mediums and compare results
  19. Hello Green gang Has anyone found if there's any sense in leaving the lovley ladies in 48 hrs of dark just before chop at the end of flower period? Just wondering if its worth doing for extra resin production or whatever its supposed to do. Thanks for your two pennies if you got any!
  20. From the album Auto Speed+ in compacted rich soil

    A Speed+ planted in rich soil (biobizz All mix with worm compost, compacted too much and not enough perlite). Question is, should I try and transplant it, into properly aerated compost, or should I bin it? It's in a 12 L pot in a 1m x.5m small tent, migro 100, 100mm extractor and two stand alone pc fans.
  21. Hi, so thanks for the help, I’m loving it so far have 2 NL AUTO’s royal queen seeds.. one plant is 4 weeks old and one is 2 weeks, staggered due to only one seed germinating originally so used a third seed.. so basically guys this is my first grow, when I started I was pretty certain that with autos it would be simple with no need to restrict light at the flowering stage and I would have seed-harvest in 9-10 weeks ish.. but since Iv been reading a lot of conflicting info as to times, some people claiming there auto’s have waited to October to flower ? just wanting a bit of clarity really on what to expect in terms of timing and yield. I know it’s all obviously dependant but il list as much specs about My grow as possible - -Northern lights auto flower royal queen seeds -11ltr fabric grow bag -biobiz all mix soil -6.5ph distilled water -quarter measurement of tomato feed (older plant) -sw England in a greenhouse with DIRECT sun about 8 hours per day thank you!! Joe

  23. Hey everyone and thank you for the warm welcome I recently got some some seeds and germinated one which was barney auto blue cheese did the glass of water technique and then put it on a damp paper towel and left for few hours then boom we had life... I brought some perlite, all purpose compost and vermiculite and 2 5/10 litre fabric pot... after two days of potting in the final pot and covering with a plastic bottle I think I killed my baby so I transferred it to a smaller pot/cup and brought it back inside for recovery. Please help and tell if she’s really dead or can she be revived.
