  1. Hi guy So after installing the new ladders to the loft I have drawn up a diagram of an insulated lung room for the attic. Unfortunately because of the loft truss beams I can only fit a 140cm tall hydo tent. Is there a good reliable auto flower that I could grow that does not grow tall as the tent is 120cm/3.9ft. I have read a few dairies and some seed companies can be better than others so any advice welcome. Cheers.
  2. Seems like autoflowers have significantly improved over the past few years and perhaps even attitudes are changing towards them. With more and more people picking up growing I can see why autos have exploded in popularity, they're more approachable to the novice grower I reckon. There used to be limited options just 5-6 years ago when going through auto catalogs, much different to today. So what autoflowers have you grown in the past couple of years that are worth a mention?
  3. For anyone who uses Ionic Soil nutrients, can you please help me in understanding the feed chart? This is to grow autos. The chart says to feed 7ml perL throughout the grow phase, I expect less for an auto, but this doesn't seem right. Every other nutrient brand shows the concentrations gradually increasing as the plant grows, which makes perfect sense to me. Unless these nutes work differently. Am I missing something?
  4. Hi guys, My autoflowers (strain: Auto Ultimate from Dutch Passion) have been stretching and are the largest of them are now starting to take on a yellow colouring. I've been pouring over the deficiency charts that are readily available but can't home in on what the problems are. Especially confused as I'm seeing signs of both deficiency and excess (yellow tips) so unsure what the best course of action is. Here's some details of my grow: * Seeds geminated 1st September, so in week 7 of the grow at the moment. * Light schedule 18/6 * PH stable at 6.0 * RDWC system * Plants are drinking well * 2.4m x 1.2m tent * Under 3 x Telos 10 LED lights * RH constant at around 60% * Temperature 26 degrees (day) and 22 degrees (night) * Background EC of 0.7 (water is hard here) * Shogun Hydro Bloom A+B 1ml/L * Shogun Calmag 1ml/L * EC stable at 1.2 I'm way under the feed schedule suggested by Shogun - but I figured that since i'm still seeing nute burn (on new growth) then I shouldn't be adding more nutes. But then I'm seeing signs of what I think are nutrient deficiiencies in the yellowing leaves, so think I could be unwittingly starving them. I'm seeing this happening in leaves about mid-way up the plant and up. Lower growth doesn't seem to be affected. In a word.... stumped! Appreciate any thoughts that you can give!
  5. Can anyone tell me what to look out for when Auto's need feeding when growing outdoors in pots. I know when to water, if the pots feel light when lifting, but when should you feed them. I read that if you use good soil, they shouldn't need feeding. But some of my larger fan leaves are turning yellow, and when i posted some pictures, on here to ask why, someone said they are hungry and need feeding. But surely when the when fan leaves are going yellow, it might be a little to late. I know there are many reasons why leaves go yellow, but going by my knowledge, it isn't due to over watering, as usually you would see leaf droop, due to leaves holding excess water. It isn't due to PH levels as this mainly affects Hydroponically grown, I am growing in soil, which should balance out the PH levels. My auto's are just coming into flower, about 2.5 weeks. is it a natural cycle for auto's for fan leaves to die off to put energy into buds.
  6. Hello again all. Second grow well under way, a freebie seed Dr AK Auto, based on AK-47. Growing environment as follows: - Small cabinet - Single auto flowering plant - Blurple LEDs, c. 60W output; plus 6500k white LED side lights, c. 36W output - Growing in soil (mix of compost, peat moss, perlite and vermiculite) in a washing up bowl - Using basic fertilisers at low concentration (Miracle Gro, Doff tomato feed) otherwise plain water - Watering using classic Blumat carrots from milk bottle reservoirs - Temperatures at the very top of the canopy are around 29/30ºC maximum, to 22/24ºC minimum during lights off. Temperature falls off quite a bit lower down. About a month ago there were some higher temperatures but that was well before current problems started. Up to a couple of weeks ago, there were no problems with this grow. Now that flowering is fairly well advanced, two problems are noticeable. - excess nitrogen caused by over feeding (dark leaves) - brown leaf spots on upper surface only (worst affected leaves feel dry and a bit crispy) I had been adding some diluted liquid fertiliser into the Blumat reservoirs, which may be the cause of all the problems as I cannot effectively flush this out. I've recently emptied the reservoirs and substituted plain water for now. So no new nutrients going into the soil. Up to this point I've been assuming the problem is nutrient burn, but the leaves don't show classic symptoms like brown tips. It's possible the brown leaf spots are just from over feeding, but I also wonder if there might also be a deficiency (Calcium?) or possibly light burn also. Most of the damaged leaves are in the central area where the lights are most intense. As the plants grew, the top of the canopy got within 30cm of the lights (uppermost buds were 22cm away). Today as a precaution I lowered the plant by 17cm so the canopy is between 39cm and 47cm from the lights. Some pics below at different stages. Anyone hazard a guess at what is going on? Have I called it right, and if so am I taking the right steps to resolve the issues? --- Day 57. Dark leaves notable, but otherwise seems healthy. --- Day 64. Leaf spots on some fan leaves. --- Day 71. Leaf spots spreading and yellow/brown now.
  7. I have 2 Auto Skunk 1 plants. Both planted at the same time In 11 litre pots using Plant Magic supreme soil. Both started flowering but one has buds the other seems to be going back to vegging and become very leafy. Just wondering if anyone knows what's going on. Using Plant Magic soil bloom feed. As you can see the 1st picture of skunk 1 plant you can see the buds, but on the 2nd skunk 1 plant there are more leaves growing where the buds are supposed to be. Anyone know what the problem might be. or will it sort it's self out.
  8. Can Anyone tell me by looking at these picture If my plant is going hermy on me. The plant is into flowering stage but i noticed a couple of ball sacks. is this normal or is it turning. There are 2 different Plants. 1 I think is ok, but the buds aren't very big. Please advise

  10. Hi My plants are now at 12 weeks, flower week 6. Light Solar 315 CMH. First coco grow. Main plant in the full coco wilma dripper on 5 x 15min at 7ml per L of ionic bloom. Other plant is in a small pot mix of soil and coco, hand watering. I think I over did it, as the leaves yellowed and a few fell off. So letting dry out and feeding less, 1 feed bloom nutes, 1 feed ph'd water on and off. I think the main plant is getting close and thinking about flushing for 5-7 days and then chopping. I bought a loupe and that helps, images not the best though. I think the trichomes look milky and the pistils ate turning inwards with good orangey colour developing. Any advice on whether she looks ready and when to start flushing? Other plant is growing small buds on the top of the plant I think as it's too hot (it is higher than the other plant) so moved as low as I can. This plant is behind the other but seems to be stalling. I'm unsure how to feed this one as the mix of soil and coco is putting me off. Any thoughts on the below? Thanks for any help / advice! Hopefully getting close now!
  11. Do these girls look like they need a stronger feed ? Kinda look pale to me opinions?
  12. 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!
  13. Doing a greenhouse grow, plants are currently 10 days old, but the temps outside are just too cold at the moment, and with the weary weather its just really not the best. Was looking at getting some cheap lights to keep them inside for a week or two then put outside once it heats up and the water gets a bit better. looks at the Marshydro TS600 but any other recommendations? Also would this be alright to do this, or could the sudden change to out in the greenhouse stump them?
  14. Here’s my setup: Light - Mars Hydro TS1000 (on 75% wattage at the moment) Pots - 3-4 Gallon Smart Pots Seed - GSC Thin Mint Autoflower Substrate - Bio-Bizz Light (top 50%) and Bio-Bizz (bottom 50%) Light height - approx 18” from plant Temp - 26°C day temp, 18° night temp (can fluctuate slightly) RH - Avg. 50% humidity Water schedule - Water every other day, water ONLY, I mist soil if it gets too dry. I took these photos today (16 days from sprout) and I noticed a small yellowish patch on one of the leaves, and a couple of the points are curled upwards very slightly. Could this be an indication of water log? I know they’re quite delicate at this stage, and I don’t want to do anything that will inhibit the growth. The curling only just happened in the last 24 hours, so hopefully no permanent damage has been done. Any help would be great! Thank you! (Temp and RH are dark period, this is just as I turned the light on again).
  15. Hi All. This is my first year of growing cannabis and im looking for some advice please. Ive germinated the three free seeds I got from RGS (am I allowed to name the company?). The varieties are Fighting Gorillaz Auto, Mazarilla Auto and Gorilla Auto. I did this a bit early on the 30th March in the propagator, in the greenhouse. Two girls germinated on the 5th and the Gorilla Auto on the 8th. Here is a pick from the 11th of March. The girls have been moving from the propagator at night to the greenhouse during the day. Its not ideal as I have to move them early in the morning and its still a bit cold in the greenhouse. I cant leave them in the propagator as that reaches very high temps during the day (the heat nearly killed my chillies). These are the girls as of yesterday. A couple of questions. When would you repot? I cant see any signs of roots at the bottom of the pot yet. When I do repot, from what I've read it would be best to go into their final pots. Due to the night temps I dont really want to leave them in the cold greenhouse at the moment, so Id like to keep them in these pots for the moment. When I report how deep should I plant? They look a bit leggy at the moment. I'm used to growing toms and vegetables and a lot of them I would plant up to the first set of leaves. Is this a good idea with these? Thanks.
  16. Okay, so here’s a list of everything I have/am doing: - Mars Hydro 70x70x160 grow tent - Mars Hydro TS1000 on 75% (about 18” from top of leaves) - Biobizz light mix on top half of pot, and All mix on bottom half for root progression. - I *think* the pots are 10L smart fabric pots. - 18/6 light schedule - Lowest Temp (dark period) is about 17°C and highest (light period) is about 25°C. I’m currently on day 10 from sprout, I haven’t had any significant progress since day 7 ish. Leaves are nice and green. (if anyone could let me know how to add an image, that would be great!)
  17. Greetings, looking to do an outdoor grow in the garden this year with some autos, and I want to get going soon - was hoping to get some Dinafem autos in, as heard they are good, but looks like I missed my chance with what happened to them. Most places I've looked totally sold out. So my question is, best breeders and strains for outdoor? I did GHS Super Lemon Auto last summer, was nice but started a bit late so got a bit of budrot by September. Decent lemony hybrid buzz off what I got though, two clearly different phenos. Hoping to have this new grow done more like August time. I hear Sweet Seeds is good? Has anyone tried Humboldts Autos? Any input appreciated, cheers
  18. I’ve got a nutrient schedule for the nutes I’m using. It goes 2 wks seedlings, 4 wks vegetative, 9 wks flowering. They say give pk in week 5 of flower. I’m growing autos for my next grow which harvest in 9 wks from seed. I figure the first 4 wks of the autos life would be veggy growth? which week of the 9 wk lifespan of the auto would I give the pk?, as if I give it in wk 5 of its lifespan it’s only in it’s really early flowering stages. And if I give 5 wks after the 4 wks veggy growth, it will be chop week. So when for the pk does anyone have any experience? mysticriver
  19. GROW REPORT - Tent - 4x4x7 ' Light - Mars Hydro TS3000 450w LED Medium - Biobizz light mix with added worm castings, dolomite lime, perlite, and malted barley in flower. Feed - Organic dry amendments (4-6-4 grow and 1-4-8 bloom) Water: Tap water with some PH down (no need for calmag as it's very hard here). Fairly straightforward grow. I trained her out hard around week 3 when preflowers started showing, she took to training like a dream, every cola round the outside looks like a main. I don't really defoliate autos, but one thing I did do when I had all those colas trained round the edge, is remove the biggest fan leaf from the inside of each of those tops, which I think really helped get the light down to the middle of the plant and turn those little bottom shoots that normally become larf into proper nugs. I'm confident this plant will be 90-95% nice buds with a tiny bit of popcorn. I planted her a month after the others I had in the tent (I had a samsquanch OG that I stunted and I didn't think would make it so I planted the Pinot, but they both made it - things got rather cramped towards the end with 6 plants in a 4x4!) Because of this, she had the light to herself for the last few weeks which I'm sure helped the development of the lower/side buds. She suffered through some cold nights and underfeeding in flower, and she powered through like an absolute trooper.
  20. As per the title, what's your preference when it comes to pots? Plastic Air Pots, Fabric Pots or Solid Plastic Pots? This is specifically for autos if it makes a difference. Top watering will be the approach. And indoors with compost.
  21. Hello, newbie here. (Sorry for long post) I grew autoflowers last year and want to grow again this year! Last year I had a incredibly basic setup, 5 VERY small plants (around 50/60cm Fresian Dew auto grown only with multi purpose compost and rainwater). They were very nice but I've done plenty of research and spoke with friends and have decided to up my game this year. I've got myself; - Sour Diesel auto (Dinafem) - 12l Root Pouch fabric pots - 100l Perlite (far too much) - 100l BioBizz light soil mix - BioBizz Bio Grow & Bio Bloom nutrients Who has had any experience with these products? I plan to add %25 perlite to the soil. I'm also restricted by hight so I want to LST my plants to keep them under 70cm, I have no experience with this so any advice is very appreciated!
  22. Hi yall, so basically what the title says is my question, I'm on week 3 or growing and most of my autos are doing great. There is one that is outgrowing all of em but the others are growing at the same rate. But then there are 2 autoflowers that arent growing as fast as the other and I have multiple autos of the same strain and the other ones of the same strain are doing great so I was wondering if I was doing anything wrong but they all get the same amount of water and light so idk what its down to. Just wanted to ask yall as there are many with the expertise that I wish I had lol. Any and every input is appreciated! (strains I have are: Gorilla Glue, Runtz, Skunk, Purple Punch and GSC)
  23. 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.
  24. 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!
