  1. Hi everyone. I've been holding off posting anything on this for a few days while waiting to see whether an issue with my plant was due to over watering or something simple. I'm thinking now that it's probably something more complex. An overview of my set up is as follows: Seeds - California Snow Autoflowers Growing area - Approximately 1200mm x 1200mm area curtained off in an enclosed lean to at the back of my house. The area is lined with heavy black plastic refuse sacks and then space blankets for reflectivity Environment - Between 21 and 29 celcius, 40-50% RH. No additional heat or fan being used Growing Medium - Coco coir (flushed and buffered with cal mag over a 36 hour period) with 20% perlite Light - Kingbo 150w LED full spectrum UFO (approx 6" from the plant). Light is on 24 hours Nutes used - Only Biobizz Biogrow so far Before I start I just want to say that budget is extremely tight now as I just found out last week that I will be losing my job at the end of July so hopefully I can come up with a simple and low cost remedy - please bear this in mind if you can! The photos below are from this morning which will be day 25. Basically, all seemed well and she was growing fine up until around day 22 when I noticed that the lower leaves were yellowing a bit. For the first week I was watering tiny amounts around the base with no nutes and in week 2 I started adding 1ml per litre of Biogrow, giving her 500ml per day. The run off PH has remained steady at around 6 although I can't give an exact figure as I'm using paper PH strips. As I wasn't seeing any signs of over watering I continued with this until I spotted the yellow tint to the lower leaves. I haven't watered now since day 22 and the top surface of the coco still seems a bit damp to the touch which seems odd given the amount of water I've given her. She's currently 5 1/4" (around 135mm) tall and the top of the plant is around 1" (25mm) below the rim of the pot. I realise now that I've probably under filled the pot, hence lining it with silver foil to try and reflect some of the light to the lower leaves and bud sites. I realise that my LED lamp is a bit underpowered and to try and help things along I've been leaving her outside on sunny days to try and soak up some natural sunlight. I do have 5 additional full spectrum LED strips which can be daisy chained which may help in adding some more light but to be honest I'm not sure what benefit there will be (photos added below. Anyway - I hope that there's enough info here to allow some of you guys to take a look and advise but if there's anything else you need that may help please do let me know. Thanks in advance
  2. 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
  3. WELCOME! Id love to say "I'm back" with another micro grow but i have had to make a new account due to stupidly using my old user name on lots of other sites. Not gonna lie, it sucks a bit as i was a active user of the forum about 6 years ago and ran a few grow diaries then but ended up not finishing the threads. Now i come back to do another and realised a new account must be made, which means i lost my subscriber status oh well, start new! So here is what will turn into my diary for my current grow, its been 6 years since my last attempt, and again i'm just fed up of spending a fortune on what i know i can grow at home! Enough chit chat, lets get into it! For this grow i will be using a 92l storage tub, lined with diamond mylar (not very neatly if i do say so myself ), a LED light unit i purchased from a guy online who makes them (holy shit is it bright), inlet fan, exhaust fan pulling through a home made carbon filter box, 6" pots and i will be growing the sweet seed mohan ram using a good amount of low stress training to keep the plants low and bushy! This worked wonders before when growing in PC cases so i'm hoping it will contain them nicely in this box, as the light is a lot more powerful than last time and the pots are bigger so i'm sure they are going to fill the space right up!! I have grown the mohan ram before and its a great plant for small spaces due to the way it stays nice and bushy! i decided i would start the diary today and i have just about finished building the box and the seeds are almost ready for the soil! So first, the box itself! Its a very simple bodge job set up i have pieced together from random cheap bargains online, but considering my last grows were inside PC cases im gonna have way more space to work with! Its not pretty, used lots of hot glue, double sided tape for the mylar application and my trusty knife to cut rough holes for the fans to pull through. Being someone who doesn't do a great deal of building stuff though, i'm pretty happy with how it came out! The 2 fans are just 140mm PC fans, wired onto a 12v 1a power adaptor, took me an hour or so to work it all out last night but its all working now! (The fans wires were marked very weirdly so trial and error took a while to get them paired up right!). The light is a LED unit that the seller says produces 12k lumens of full spectrum light and uses a metal fin design to dissipate the heat. Each LED has 8 reflectors around it too so the light coming off of this bad boy makes the 80w CFL i was using in the PC cases look like a low battery keyring torch. Here is a couple images of the box from the outside! Now that the box is ready, the light is mounted to the top of it i decided to bang 3 seeds into some water! They all cracked nicely over night and then this morning have been put on some wet paper folded over to help them show a good root, then ill be putting them into the soil later tonight or tomorrow morning! Exciting times! I could bang them right in the soil now as they shown a nice start just in the water, but i think ill let them go another 12 hours in the tissue just so i have a good established tail before planting! The idea is going to 18/6 for the whole grow as they are autoflowering. Medium is biobizz all mix, nice and simple, i went with the plant magic last time so i thought id switch it up and try the bizz this time, and i also grabbed their try pack of the 3 organic feeds, veg bloom and topmax! I'm aiming for an OZ per plant dried if i can, then if the smaller 3rd makes much thats just a bonus! as working it out, 2 OZ would last me nicely until i could have another couple of plants ready for the chop on round 2, if this one goes well! The plan was originally just to do 2 plants as space is tight in the box, but i popped 3 seeds in to make sure atleast 2 would germinate, but all 3 are doing great so one will be going into a slightly smaller pot and either joining the other 2 in the box if the space doesn't get to tight, if down the line i start to get short of space then it may well have to be a conservatory girl if it stays nice and small. Not really a lot to add at this point, but hopefully in the next 7 days we'll have some pictures of some girls poking out of the soil and getting started good and proper!
  4. 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
  5. I've been growing the "quick one" autoflower from RQS. It says 9-10 weeks start to finish, Currently on week 10 with no buds appearing. I have a blueberry that is budding, not sure why this one isn't. Any ideas guys?
  6. I hope someone can tell me what is going on with these plants. Especially the green crack with the drooping leaves. So the first 2 pictures are of my Auto green Crack, and the second 2 photo's are Auto Blue dreamatic. I was hoping if someone can tell me why the leaves are drooping on my Green crack auto's or is the normal as they are flowering. I have been watering but not over watering, they all have now had 2 feeds of plant magic bloom. the blue dreamatic seems fine unless someone sees different, but my green crack autos the leaves are drooping. Please help
  7. Green Crack looking perkier

  8. what's happening with these plants.

  9. 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
  10. Hi guys.Im newbie here and im planing to grow in a pc case.Generally indicas are short and easy to grow for beginners.I learned bunch of things like lumens,cool air and etc.My case is about to 48cm height and i'll use 7cm pot with 6 liter soil.These are the items that i'll use in my grow box. 3*50W full spectrum cob led (with fans and alluminum block leds have to stay cool) 10 liter of biobizz light mix soil 48cm height pc case 2*120mm good fan with good rpm(one will be exhaust fan with active carbon filter the other one will inhale fresh air from outside) 1*white widow auto or something that mostly indica and dwarf And im gonna cover inside of the case with alluminum car sun visor. I checked real statistics of leds.They are real 50W. 1*120mm fan for the leaves can feel the wind At the growing stage i'll use biobizz nutrients like bio bloom-grow and all mix. Do you think is there any problem about my system?50W led can produce 80lm/watt and 3*50W can produce 12K lumens.I searched for the lumen thing and i saw for the 1 plant it has to be 10K lumens minimum.Do i have to change something or system will be ok with 1 plant? Btw i'll use 18/6 at veg stage,12/12 at flowering stage.And i'll try to use low stress techniques for control my yield in case. Is that all?Do you guys wanna help for the better result? If this system will success this topic can be the best for people who wanna grow in a pc case.So please dont hesitate to fix something if its wrong on this setup.

  15. Hi guys , a new comer here , been reading quite a few bits on here so decided to sign up and get involved myself. i have a few questions regarding watering/nutrient feeding cycle ? my grow space is 1m x 1m x 2m Lighting : Spider farmer sf1000 tempature is : 25 degrees humidity is : 60% ph level : 6.2 soil : Gold Label Special Mix Soil instead of germinating my seeds i put them straight into the soil in 10L pots to try and minimize anything going wrong theyve just sprouted and ive been giving the soil just enough water so i dont drown them . But my main questions are , im using advanced nutrients 3 part micro , bloom , grow so at what week should i start adding nutes ? How much ML per litre should i mix ? Do i feed the plant nutes everytime i water or do i feed with nutes 1 day and then just PH water the next ? And while the plant is still small do i still water enough so i get run off or will i drown them ? Any advice will be great like i said im new to all of this and just looking for some guidance
  16. 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.

  19. Hi, Can anyone tell me what is the best way to test PH levels in water and soil, I think my water from the tap is around 7.5 after doing a little research, I know the ideal PH levels should be around 5.0-6.5. what can I use to test he soil PH levels also, as I am guessing the tap water I have been using increases the PH level in soil also. Is it best to use things like litmus paper you can buy from pharmacy or a electronic reader. If PH levels are to high what is the best way to lower PH levels to an acceptable standard. and will PH levels of 7.55 do harm to the plants if I carry on. I am growing outdoors in 11l pots in plant magic supreme soil. hoping that rain water, when it rains lowers PH levels in the soil from the tap water. I am currently feeding plant magic soil grow, mixed in tap water.1.7ml/0.75L recommendation is 2ml-4ml/1L Once per week, I am noticing slight leaf curl also and tips of leaves yellowing. Might be due to nute lock as PH levels to high or nitrogen toxicity. Please help

  23. Hi Does anyone know of and where to get hold of a grow light on a mount or stand. I don't have a grow tent, as I usually grow outdoors, in pots. But when the weather is bad I bring them inside and leave them by my door, but I feel this does not expose them to enough direct sun light. So I was wondering, is there any kind of stand or mount which already has a LED grow lamp on it which I can just place over my plants, until they can go outside again or some kind of frame which I can place over the plants and attach my grow led on to it. I have looked on ebay and amazon at vivosun 4ft t5 frame, but no longer available in the uk has to be imported from the usa. something like the link above would be ideal.
  24. Hi all, Doing a check of the plant I’ve encountered these very small bright yellow things on the undersides of my leaves, I’ve managed to rub them off incredibly easy, but obviously want to prevent them returning. Has anyone encountered these before? as always thank you guys in advance!
  25. I think i have a problem
