  1. Hello! Welcome to my Sweet Seeds competition grow! I want to start by saying thanks the guys at sweet seeds for their great customer support when I had a issue with my seeds parcel, resolving the issue and getting it to me so I can join in to this competition. This new year I've decided to run a "sweet shop" theme grow including some colourful and interesting girls for the competition. For personal reasons I had to take my grow tent down this Christmas but it has given me a chance to add the build to my diary which I'm pleased about so let's start with that! I started by getting the filter system in, the use of rachet straps made this much easier to align the ducting and attach the jubilee clips while suspended. After checking the fan, filter and ducting for any leaks I moved onto the lighting, again the use of rachet straps made this much easier, I am using a 250w HPS dual spectrum and a 315w CDM lamp, to get started I am only using the HPS and will add the CDM later during flowering so they run side by side. In my last grow I had some temp issues so I've had to bring in a radiator and thermostat to keep temps where I want them. After getting the tent ready and at a stable temp of 21/22c last night I started the germination of my chosen seeds, once in the paper towel I wet them to the point they wont drip but feel moist to the touch, then they have been placed in a sealed box in the airing cupboard for the next 48hrs. Thanks for reading the build intro to my sweet shop diary! here's a breakdown of my setup in use so far: - homebox q120 tent - cyclone duel speed fan - fan speed socket - carboair 60 filter - 250w hps - 315w cdm - oil radiator - inkbird termostat In my next update I will be sowing the tapped seeds and going over what soil and nutrients I will be using during this grow. Catch you then!
  2. Hi so first of all id like to say I'm new on here, but really glad that I found this forum. So on to my topic, Ive germinated and planted 18 different plants (5 strains) and as of now they are in 3,5l pots. But I've read so much about that the size of the pots can really determine how big the plants get, and my plan is to put them into 7l pots when they are at day 18. As of now the second set of leaves have sprung and are starting to grow. I feel like there are a lot of experts here from which I could benefit, are 18 plants in 7l pots suitable for the 1 square meter tent Ive got or should I sacrifice some of them to let the others have more space? And is a 7l pot too small or is it fine? (they are all autos) As of now they are growing well and seem to have it great but I'm just worried that it will be too crammed in there when they get bigger. Ive also thought about maybe only having 3 of each strain, as I now have 5 of each... I would really love some input!
  3. Hey guys, just a novice looking for some reassurance. How are my babies looking, as you can see in one of the pictures you can see a shell sat level with the soil. This has been like this over 24hrs now, it looks as if its bent. The shell has opened but doesn't seem to progress from there. Also on the other pictures you can see the mishaped leafs. (forgot proper name of them). Are these okay, somewhat worried.
  4. On biobizz all mix it states to mix with warm water and sit in a warm dark spot for 3 days to allow the microbes etc to activate. How much water am I supposed to mix in with the soil.? What consistency does it need to be, and what temperature is ideal.? Thanks for the help.
  5. Hey All, Just noticed some sacks on what're supposed to be my autoflowers? Am I being silly and they're just flowering, female glans? Or have my plants gone hermie or male?! RQS Northern Lights and Diesel, both about 9-10 weeks post popping.
  6. Hi guys!running 3 autoflower lost track of flower!but one plants seems to be maturing good!!and the other two I think one is doing okay and the other I don’t seem to notice the maturing of the buds any guess??also attached some photos of all three flowering sites please let me know if may just be younger stages of flower compared to main one using GHE 3 parts also atami bloombastic statin is lemonberry haze
  7. Hi UK420ites I am hoping someone will be able to help me identify what is going on with this plant before it progresses further. The spots are a bit more orange to the naked eye. I am growing a couple of Blackberry Gum Autoflowers and a Gorilla Glue Auto. The plants are just standing in an insulated loft, not a grow tent, and I have a temperature controller which will turn on a heater if the space drops below 24C during lights on (target temperature of 26C), or 18C during lights off (target temperature of 20C). In practice the room is usually 24-25C during lights on, with a max so far around 27C, and 20-21 lights off, with a minimum reached of 18.7C. I have an air circulator 16” fan and small oscillating fan, which move the leaves but aren't pointed directly at the plants. I don't have extraction set up at the moment but have a filter and fan in the space sucking the air through. The loft hatch is open all but a few hours a night so there should be plenty air getting up there and I imagine I replenish the CO2 quite well with all the time I'm up there ogling them. Plants 2 x Seed stockers Blackberry Gum Auto started around 20 September 1 x Gorilla Glue Auto free seed from Herbies started around 30 September Lights 2x Mars Hydro SP3000 LED lights, now at just over 3 weeks since flowering they are 12-16 inches above canopy and near 100% power. 18h on / 6h off light cycle Environment 19-21 Lights off 24-27 Lights on Humidity 50-60% Nutrients I am using Growers Ark Coco Soft water Nutes. Currently feeding about 0.5ml/L Boost, 2.5ml Bloom A & B and Extra Traces, 2ml Root Tonic. My tap water has background 0.35EC and this solution is 1.35EC. Every couple of feeds I also add about 0.5ml/L Cal Mag and dial back the base nutrients accordingly, keeping EC to 1.3-1.4 (I have also strayed higher to 1.5-1.6EC but the plants looked a little overfed, so backed off again). I only do this as the instructions for the light say that more Cal Mag is needed than usual to grow well under LED. Plants are in 10L fabric pots and are fed twice a day to a good run off of 30% or so, there are no wild fluctuations in EC or PH with the run off. This problem is only showing on one plant on several leaves and the rest all look ok. I don't think calyx production has slowed but then again it always seems to take forever when you look at the plants 10 times a day haha. I think maybe I went for too many firsts with these (First time using LED, first autoflowers indoors, first time doing LST, first use of Growers Ark nutes) and am suffering from information overload from the amount of reading I've done, so maybe I am missing something obvious? Sorry for the essay, thanks in advance for any help you can give me, if I've missed anything off please just ask.
  8. After my two photoperiods are done I would like to switch my lights back to 18/6 however I have two autos that I started under 12/12 to get a head start ready for the next grow. Will I be okay to change the lights immediately back to 18/6 in the tent after chopping the photos or should I change the hours 1 hour per day at a time to not stress the plants ? Thanks !
  9. Hi, I planted 3 autoflowers, specifically ‘Quick One’ by Royal Queen Seeds on the 8th September so 2 months ago. However they have not got any buds at all as of yet, is this normal? The plants are not in the perfect environment however they do seem to be growing fairly decently. I can’t see any pistils either maybe the odd few but I think there should be a lot more at this age, can anyone help please??? Please see pics below
  10. Hello growers! So after a few weeks of research and slowly getting all my grow bits i started my first ever grow, i was doing a diary in another area but have a lot of questions as i go and see people get a lot of help here in the autoflower section so im going to continue it here. Here is my setup: 80x80x160 tent 250w dual spectrum HPS lamp Fox 6inch extraction kit with sound muffling ducting & carbon filter 2x desk fans for circulcation 2x termostates with HR ( different makes ) 2x 5gal fabric pots Lumelite heavy duty 600w timer Biobizz root juice Biobizz grow Biobizz bloom Plant magic plus supreme soil Yesterday was day 20 and it seems the auto amnesia has started to enter her preflower? Start of flower? Noticing a few pistils forming, pot felt light again so watered 2L of 24hr sat tap water with 2ml of Biobizz grow and 2ml of biobizz Bloom. Shes bushed our nicely and my LST has seemed to have worked, ive pulled down the main stem again to even canopy more however am concerned that i should stop LST now that pistils are growing and let heads stretch, would this be a good choice? As for the auto white widow yesterday was day 15 and shes starting to grow quicker, have been tucking leaves and done sone LST to open up those lower branchs to some light, her pot is still heavy from last water where she had 2L tap water with 8ml of biobizz rootjuice and 2ml of a generic calmag
  11. The seeds have arrived! I wont be germinating until april/may as my greenhouse has been destroyed so no early plants this year. This years grow will be a garden centre job i think ill probably still keep it organic which means i get to go poop shopping anyway these are the seeds i ordered (nice 1 @Dinafem-Mark) no doubt ill run other dinafem strains as i have plenty of others
  12. Hello everyone, this is my first time growing indoor and I am very confused because I found too many information, but after days of researches I think I came up with something good: - 3 Quick One RQS autoflowers: 8 weeks, 60 cm max height - BudBox Lite - 0.6m x 0.9m x 0.9m - Grow Tent - 3 Air Pruner Fabric Pots 8 liters 20cm X 20cm X 23cm - BioBizz Light-Mix Soil 20 litre (plus some extra perlite) - Mars Hydro TS 1000 LED I think that 3 Quick One with a max height of 60cm will fit good in a 90cm height tent, also the light seems to be appropriate for 3 autoflowers. I will then add 2 fan (1 in, 1 out I guess?) and that's it. What do you think ? Am I missing something ? Thank you for your replies <3

  15. So I've killed off my spidermites that I had on these two plants in the greenhouse, and wanted to finish off in my new tent. Having never grown before and a tent being the best option for me, I thought I'd start with a Gorilla loft tent (needed the tapering to fit in my shed). Got a whole kit with 600W HPS and 125 Rhino Carbon filter/inline fan combo (see pics). Finished setting up the tent, moved the plants from my greenhouse inside, cranked on the light and left for 18 hours. Now what I believe has happened is that my light is too close to my plants, and has given them heat stress, however I can't move my light any further up, as the fan/filter sits above it. Any suggestions? I've turned my ballast down to 400W, which seems to keep the temp to about 30 degrees (still too high, but at 600W it was going up to 45 degrees in the day!). I would like to get some better airflow into the room, but can't feasibly do this. Disclaimer - this still isn't my grow, finishing off my mate's plants. My diary will begin when I have these plants out of the way and I can begin my own.

  17. 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
  18. hi guys and gals, I've been growing this plant for a couple of months and recently its started flowering... bout time... I've noticed a number of leaves are curling in on themselves. Not sure why, can anyone advise. Not able to see any bugs on the plant

    Week 12 of growing in Hydroponics and she is already starting to flower!
  20. Hi guys, this is my first grow and first time posting. Any tips or advice be much appreciated have no experience but got to start somewhere! will update this as i go have been late starting this diary have been meaning to get it done but not had time recently so here it goes! It may seem like im going on and asking alot but as said just looking to see what people think and if any pointers as no experience! My setup: 1.2x1.2x2.00 Budbox pro with silver lining LUMii Black 600w Digital Ballast with 230V Phillips Greenpower BulbAdjust-A-Wings Medium EnforcerAgrolab Hygrometer1x 6" RAM Clip on fanRhino Hobby 125/3005" Systemair RVK extraction fan So I have 3 BCN Critical XXLS in 12ltr Fabric pots on the right side and 2 Nothern Lights, 1 Candy Dawg in 8ltr Fabric pots on the left. As can see from the photo they are quite far on already as i write this they have just entered there 6th week yesterday. Criticals are planted in PlantMagic Supreme and the other 3 are just planted in John Innes Multi Purpose as didnt have enough PlantMagic left so just had to get the only thing local garden center had! Plant progress/photos so far Critical1 Critical2 - This plant has been slower than the rest running about a week behind buthas started to take off now! Critical 3 Northern 1 Northern 2 Candy Dawg So far upto around week 4 they were only given water and around 1ml per litre of PM Bio-Silicone every second watering then once hit the 3/4 week old i started to give them 1.5ml of PM Oldtimers Grow again this was only every second feed i fed this alongside Bio-Silicone. Entering week 5 when started to pre-flower i dropped it to 1ml grow and 1ml PM Oldtimers Bloom per litre on every feed however last few feeds after speaking to someone who has previous experience switched to only 1.5ml Bloom on every feed! I am currently doing the wet dry cycle with the 12ltr pots recieving about 2ltr every 2/3days once the soil is dry. Also which im away to go into in a moment i started to add cal/mag 1ml per litre as had notice some markings on some leaves which started with Critical 3 but since adding the defect hasnt seemed to progress any further! Light has been constantly hung between 12-18inches. When seedlings i started on 250W the increased to 400w once had 2nd set leafs and then upto 600w around the 3 or 4 week mark. Deficiency's: Critical 3 So i started to notice these little spots on my plant Critical 3 towards the end of week 4. I dont no anything about deficiency or stuff like that but all other plants were fine and after have a search on google put it down to a calcium deficiency and started to add calmag 1ml per ltr to all plants. These dont seem to have progressed that i can see so im hoping my guess at the calcium deficiency was right! However today when was feeding them as can see on middle photo i noticed a few lower leaves are this very light way around the edges which im unsure as to why? Northern Lights 1 Today when feeding i noticed these very large random brown spots on this plant these have just appeared and the plants are being given calmag and bloom so again unsure as to the cause of this or if its anything to be worried about? Could it be water sat on the leaf from a previous feed thats caused it to burn or something else? All Plants across all 6 plants ive started to notice the tips of the leafs especially new leafs are very long thin and some twisted again is this normal or something to be worried about? Ive tried to add in everything i can remember, have done and come across to make this as complete as possible and to try help you help me haha. Will keep this updated as i go! I also did have 24 plants outdoors in a forest these were started in the tent for 2 weeks in small plastic cups then taken to site, i just dug holes straight into the ground and filled with soil from local garden centre and re planted into that! All was going perfect with them but last week they catapillers found them and pretty much munched every leaf of of 20 of them and only 4 they didnt touch! i amnt going to make a diary for these purely again due to the fact i didnt get time at first and now there in a right mess so will probably post photos of the end results of them! went back out to them the other day and wasnt as bad as initial damage assesment of only 4 being salavagable it seems there are still 15 i might get return of off so heres hoping but will see how it goes im just expecting the worse now so if does turn out its a bonus will keep posted though! Cheers for taking time to read threw this
