  3. Hi, I have just started my first outdoor grow, I have 4 auto fem frisian dew seedlings in a propagator sitting at the window. I have my soil sorted out am using canna terra with perlite and I have a decent spot facing south with decent coverage of nettles and bushes. My main question is about nutrients, I have read that autos don't really need much added and I am looking to use organic nutes if needed. I am just looking to get the best out of the grow. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks
  4. Hi all, i am preparing for my first attempt at a grow. After much consideration over the past few years and lots of research over the past few weeks, i feel that im ready to commit. After finding a lot of the information daunting at first i now feel like all the pieces of the puzzle are coming together and im not finding myself confused by all the jargen as much as i once was. I would however like to hear what people's opinions are regarding my proposed first set up. Im thinking i should do a hydro grow using an oxypot/bubbler (ive seen available to purchase for around £20) as i feel i have a reasonably good understanding of how it works and how to operate it. From what i have read the air pumps provided with them should just be set aside and forgotten about.. i like the look of the cylinder shaped airstones ive seen advertised on youtube-any recommendations for a pump and airstone system to use with the oxypot would be greatly appreciated. Im going to try 1x autofem at first and see how i get on (strain not yet decided-will just go for the fastest highest yeild i can get for the first go.. any suggestions welcome) I already have a 600w hps light with ballast and euro reflector so i plan on putting that into a secret jardin 1.2x 1.2x 2m tent as i understand they are a good brand and it will essentially be what is holding up the light & filter/extractor.. i only plan on growing 1 or 2 at a time but ive gone for a larger tent as i have no cool tube (safety first!!). Im undecided on the extractor/ filter any suggestions on what would be suitable for me/the tent and light + 1 or 2 plants would be much appreciated. I plan on housing an automatic fire extinguisher inside the tent (the smaller cylinder shaped ones that cost around £40) im looking at onablocks aswell for in and around the tent. I suppose the main worry i have is.. am i being a bit over ambitious by attepting a hydro grow for my first go? From what i have read they are reasonably straight forward and cheap nowadays and i would probabaly just need certain processes explained in beginner friendly terms like transferring from rockwool to the oxypot, feeding and flushing (i feel reasonably happy with these processes but it would be good to hear some dos and donts and to generally know if ive understood it or if im overlooking anything - i plan to seek specific advice when the time comes).. other things ive been looking at are pest control.. i rarely see people posting about this when describing their setups. Bug blockers on inlet fans- are they worthwhile? Do people use them? Any other recommendations for pest control for beginners would again be highly appreciated. Also electrical safety.. ive seen people on american forums talking about afci arc circuit interruptors? As far as im concerned they look exactly like what i would call the fuse board located under the stairs.. but im no spark so if anyone could confirm that would be handy.. from what i have read ive never seen it mentioned by anyone doing a uk grow.. i dont need a massive explanation on what it is or what the difference is between that and my fuse board if there is one.. i only really need to know if it is necessary or not. Sorry if ive missed out any key points regarding the grow.. let me know if i have and i will fill in the blanks. Thanks to anyone who has taken the time to read this and obviously thanks in advance to anyone able to give any advice.. i get that this is the same old story of " its my first grow please help me" but i guess we have all been there :-). Im looking forward to producing some lovely smoke for me and the Mrs and being involved in this lovely online community :-) also i hope that i havent posted in the wrong subforum- apologies if i have- i couldnt seem to find one that fitted the bill any more than this one!
