  1. As some of you might have seen I’m currently doing an auto grow so this will run alongside the main diary for you Dinafem fans Mid-April two Dinafem Critical+ 2.0 seeds were soaked in water for 24 hours, then placed into small pots with seedling compost and put into a propagator. Two days later, the Critical+ had cracked and were reaching for the sky, so were placed into my MicroBox under a 23w CFL on 24 hours a day. I also had a lone MobyDick auto, it must have been 6/7 year old but sadly after a few extra days it didn’t crack. On day 6, a second 23w CFL was added to the MicroBox and the wet/dry feeding cycle started. On day 8, the pots had dried out enough so I started with some supplements… 0.5ml per litre Plant Magic Bio-Silicon 0.25ml per litre Aptus Start Booster Day 11 everything was going OK, they were maybe a little leggy, so I got them as close to the light as I dared. Day 15 was pot up day into 7L finals, they could have been potted up a day or two earlier, but it is what it is They were then placed into my tent, ballast was set to 250w and 18/6. I also added some seaweed extract into the feed so they each got around 1.25L of the following… 0.25ml per litre Aptus Start Booster 0.5ml per litre Plant Magic Bio-Silicon 1ml per litre Plant Magic Catalyst By day 23, they’d got a bit of a spurt on so I started on some LST and flicked the ballast to 400w. I also added some CalMag to the feed, more as a prevention than a cure and they each got around 2L of… 0.25ml per litre Aptus Start Booster 0.5ml per litre Plant Magic Bio-Silicon 1ml per litre Plant Magic Catalyst 0.5ml per litre Plant Magic Magne-Cal Yesterday was day 29 things are ticking along nicely and pre-flowers are now showing I’ve been continuing with some LST as they’ve had a bit of a stretch and the ballast is still set to 400w, but will be flicked to 600w in the next day or so. Feed is also still the same, but I plan to stop the Start Booster next feed. That’s all for now and keep it green

  3. I’m New to the forum well a returning user been a good few years though. Anyway I'm gonna do a dairy I’ve chosen RGS auto lemonade OG these will be getting done outdoors LAT 51 I’ve got six pips and going down the organic route. Using plant magic’s range to feed them, fingers crossed for some good results lets hope we have a decent summer with plenty of sun. Day one Thought I’d do a side by side experiment regarding pot size/growth/yield rate etc. Soaked all 6 beans in water for 24 hours until they sunk. One has gone into a 6.5 litre final pot size straight away. Another has gone into 11litre final pot size the remaining 4 have gone into 0.5 litre pots which they will stay in for 10days and then be potted up into 11litre final pots. Awaiting heads to pop up now will keep you all updated.

  5. I'm relatively new to growing, as this is only my 4th grow. Currently growing Fastbuds StarDawg and Pineapple Express auto in soil. Both popped 11 days ago, but the stardawg maybe stunted and wondering if its worth keeping? It had a difficult start, I had to remove the seed case and later open the Cotyledon manually as after 5 days it hadn't opened itself. In the picture below the stardawg at top has shown miniscule growth over the last 6 days and it may never get to anything I guess though it seerms strong and healthy despite size. Environment: Soil, biobizz allmix (Nutes will be when needed, biobizz grow, flower) Day temp 75-77 Night temp 65-68 Water from tap about ph 7.2, not +-ph'd as I understand biobizz buffers to 6.3-6.5 5" plastic pot at this stage, to be moved to 8ltr Air Pots later. My last grow I started Sour Orange and Stardawg in 8ltr Air Pots successfully so wanted to see how well they would do starting in the 5" pot. 60x60x140 tent 2 Viparspectra 300w lights (hope to replace these with an hlg 150w board from diyleduk in a few months when finances allow) 4" extractor+filter 50w 12" tube heater Any ideas if stardawg will eventually burst forth? Or I'm thinking of replacing it with a Critical Kush photoperiod if it doesn't.
  6. Hey guys and gals! Well to start, I had been doing some light reading over the winter on this forum and I have to say its a delight to see such a welcoming and friendly place for info and tips! I decided to have a go at this 'grow your own' business. Ive got a south easterly facing garden with a greenhouse so it gets the sun for most of the day til about 8pm high summer. Ive even used foil insulation to increase the ray trap. Looks like a bit of a grow house! Ive got a full spectrum of veg and flowers on the go for the neighbours curiosity to be satisfied its not a dodgy grow house lol. Anyways, Ive bought Dinafem seeds, all Autos, I germinated the quick kush a few weeks ago, its doing well I think - a nice rich green. My main worry is that its had a bit of a stretch and purhaps the pot its in is a little small? I think its in a 3L pot and Ive read in a lot of threads that 5L is a good size. So my first question is do I stick with the pot or size up? My worry is I should probably size up very soon.. so its a decision that I need to make asap. Whats your thoughts? The pot has a false bottom so the roots arent soaked and a drainage hole. For Soil I used Biobizz light mix. And Ive used a little fishmix and root juice with its 2nd watering yesterday, maybe 1ml/L of rainwater. Im only watering when the pot feels light and the soil under the top starts to dry. This quick kush germinated when there was no real sun for a week so I bought a little full spec LED lamp to nurse it indoors. At the minute its still sleeping indoors with some LED before bed and spending its days in the greenhouse. Too eager to wait! Ive got a Bubba Kush and a Critical 2.0 seed ready to germinate. Those will deffo be going in bigger pots! And by the time they pop out the soil we should have lovely May sunshine, so wont be getting the LED treatment unless we have a month of rain! Cheers! Red P.S. i have photos but as yet unable to upload due to file size?

  8. 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?
  9. So after attempting to dig my holes at one plot, I've realised the reason it's so clear of trees etc. is because there's only a few inches of soil before you reach a massive rock. My plot is perched atop this massive rock and is surrounded by thick foliage. Basically, there are no digging alternatives, and it's a great plot with near-all day sun (just a cunt to get to) - so I'm going to plant out in fabric pots. It's within a reasonable distance (just fuckin awkward terrain) so I can get up there to water when necessary. I was also going to mix some water crystals into the compost to help with dry spells. My current thinking is this: -Germinate the seeds in 1/2L peat pots -Have them in my LED cupboard on shitty days and out in the sun whenever possible (16/8 cycle) -After approx. two weeks, assuming they're alive and healthy, soak and rip the peat pot and plant directly into fabric pot full of 100% compost (w/ bit of perlite) -Because I don't have time to let natural fertilisers break down, feed with liquid nutes as and when required This is my first grow and I've already managed to butcher a fair few of my photos. I have two Auto Mazars just sprouted and they will be following the plan above unless someone intervenes (lol). I'm considering buying six Auto Lemonade OG from RGSC, because a few photos will be going out today and there will be more space in the cupboard. I've invested £hundreds in this already, I really want some smoke out of it! The first is always going to be a massive learning curve and next year I already know what I will be doing differently. But I know how much I'll kick myself if my only survivors don't make it to bud. I have three decent sized photos about to go out but I'm very aware of how vulnerable they are. Any recommendation on pot size? I currently have a few 40L and 50L fabric pots which I bought a while ago to plant photoperiods in undiggable plots. Could I get away with smaller with autos? 30L? Absolutely any advice would be hugely appreciated. I know there are already discussions about fabric pots and autos etc. on here, I just want to know if there's any glaring problems with my plan. Sorry!
  10. 1st post! I've just moved into a place with a big old South facing balcony and overlooked by no one but the sea! Enclosed both sides and very sheltered, gets a good 6-7 hours sunlight where I plan to have the plants. I have a bit of experience having made a friend a killer stealth cabinet concealed in a fake chimney breast in his house! I helped out on a couple of scrogged grows which went well so have an idea of whats what but 1st time outdoors. I have already 3 Dutch passion auto euforia going approx 2 weeks ago and doing well. Germinated in paper towel and all 3 popped in 24 hrs! I have them in clover multi purpose compost as someone experienced here said it was the biz. Seedlings were in 9cm pots, 2 plastic and one clay. I had them inside in the window and over night under a crapper of an ebay 45w cfl which not convinced very effective. 1st question. Is a 45w cheap 6500 bulb about 3 inches from top of seedlings going to do any good? Any advice on something better but very cheap to get my next 3 going? I think I saturated the soil to begin with and was worried had fucked it to begin with. Interestingly the one in the clay pot def went the fastest. One of them has done the weird three leaf seedling thing... interested to see how that goes. Put them in the airing cupboard a couple of nights which helped dry them out. Gave them a gentle water and then my mum came over and thought she was being helpful by saturating them again!! Gave her a bollocking and decided to transplant to 2l pots to help dry out. I do a lot of gardening so confident not disturbing too much. Will transplant again to bigger pots which I understand is asking for it but lets see what happens. I've had them outside all weekend with seriously hot weather and 2 are going really well. The 3 leafer looks a bit stunted. 14 days in and 2 of them are flying. 2nd question... I got 20l pots for final pots. Is this ridiculously big? I have just ordered some Dutch passion CBD white widow seeds and plan to pop them in a couple of weeks so mid June, hopefully done by mid September. I was planning on keeping the 2 best Euforia plants and 2 best White widow so there are 2 crop a month apart. 3rd question... is this madness with the smell? I have a balcony with neighbours above but they wont be able to see them. There is a wall between our balcony and the neighbours to the left and end of building to the right. Right on the sea it is quite breezy. Guess I will have to suck it and see. 4th question. How do I make images smaller?

  19. Welcome to my little part of the world, please do pull up a comfortable seat and sit back to enjoy my offerings for your viewing pleasure. Firstly, I must express my continued thanks and appreciation to the Sweet Seeds team, @Sweet Seeds-tommy, @Sweet Seeds -Jaypp, and all the rest of the gang who make the magic happen for the rest of us ! Last year, I was the lucky winner of the Sweet Seeds 2017 Best Video, I have the trophy in pride of place in my living room, can't for the life of me get a good photograph of it as its glass with white etching on it, will try again later.... This year I will be doing a timelapse of a Cream Devil, from seed to harvest. I have my fingers crossed for many shades of red towards the end of the video to give it that wow factor, we will see ! As I am mid project at the moment I will be starting my main grow for the competition around the 2nd week of December, this will be a wide variety of Sweet Seeds offerings : So, that is me committed, the ball is rolling, tomorrow I shall set up the 40 x 40 tent with a 125 CFL for the Devil Cream. Get the camera all set up, and hopefully next weekend I will have a little 20 second video to show you of her popping out of the soil Until then, keep safe and have sweet smokes
  20. I've just started off my first proper batch of autos this morning. I've been wanted to try autos for a while. I've done the odd one before. A few in the greenhouse, some unsuccessful attempts indoors with crap genetics and I did help a friend start to finish with a Blue Kush autos grow. I've kind of forced myself into a position where my next batch of scheduled cuts, which were due to go into the shed next week, are not ready. I rooted them but didn't realise they'd gone into flower slightly and now look like they need a reveg. Rather than waste the available flowering time in the shed I'm taking the opportunity to run these instead. I've chosen 3 Bears OG from Mephisto and I hope I can do them justice. I bought a pack of 6 although there were 7 in the pack. I planted 6 in rootits and I'm going to save one for the greenhouse later this year. I have other stuff vegging but I'm going to give these priority over everything to give them a good start. Just got to wait and see how many pop up!
  21. Hello again everyone. Run down of the environment - 240w LED light 24/0 coco coir Growers Ark hard water nutes, currently feeding 3ml/l of bloom a+b with 2ml/l of traces which gives an EC of 1.7-1.8, PH'd to 6.5 temps are always between 23-28 degrees Humidity sits between 45-55 currently I have 5 plants in my tent, 3 zkittlez autos which are doing fine and 2 gorilla glues which are having slight issues, one more so than the other. I have been a bit lazy and been feeding both plants the same amounts of nutrients etc so I know that most likely is somewhat to blame. The GGs are showing a couple of different symptoms that has got me not knowing what route to take so I thought I would ask you knowledgeable folks your opinion before taking action. So as you can see in the photos, it's the top of the plants that seem to be affected with spots, you can also see that they are a bit pale and the leaves are also curling up / canoeing. If they were just pale, I would have upped the amount of feed they are getting. If they just had the black spots and paling, I would have guessed that it might be mg deficiency, and if my temps were too high then perhaps that could solve the canoeing and curled up tips, or even nute burn but then they wouldn't be pale? I dunno However, they are all present, so what do you think? They seem to be doing OK otherwise...only a few weeks til i chop them as well I reckon, if that! Hope the ramble makes some sense...Let me know if you need anything clearing up Cheers
