  1. 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
  2. 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

    Please can someone tell me why the leaves have a brown tinge to them.
  4. Hello fellow growers and erb lovers. First time here on the site and I’m glad to be here to share my experiences with you. I’ll tell you a brief little bit about myself and then elaborate on my plans for this summerI first started growing autos back when I was a young lad a fair few years ago. My and my mate picked up a Critical 2.0+Auto seed from Rhino seed bank? If I’m not mistaken back in 2010. We used a small plastic green house in the middle of a big gauze bush on a southernly facing slope near some farm land to grow it out. We visited it every couple of days using basic equipment, cheap tomato feed blah blah. To our surprise it grew almost 5 ft in height almost wanting to outgrow the green house. We couldn’t believe it at the time, being still kids and all that. I’m not mentioning any ages but you know. Safe to say we were young snappers. We didn’t know much about the anatomy of the plant although we just knew you smoked the flowers. 2 months and a couple of weeks into the grow we could tell it was starting to flower and things were looking amazing for our first ever grow! Our dreams were quickly cut short when the farmer clocked onto us. There was a corn field at the top of the hill which you had to get over a fence to get into but we believe when the farmer was collecting all of his corn at the end of the season he saw our little green house from up high in his tractor over he banking of the hill. Needless to say the green house was destroyed and thrown down further into the gauze bushes! Wewere gutted, tried to salvage what we could but they were premature flowers. Looking back it was an experience I’ll never forget! Class!Fast forward a few years and a few more grows, some successful some not and here we are. This year we plan to grow mainly Mephisto autos, a few Dinafem and maybe a couple of others I’ve yet to decide on. Few plants on the windowsill as an experiment, a few in my greenhouse in the garden and as many as we can getoutside! Currently I have two Mephisto beans out of 12 popped. 1x Double Grape and 1x Strawberry Nuggets. These two are going to be my windowsill beans, if I manage to Harvest 14g off both plants combined I’ll be chuffed. The rest of the Mephisto Beans (1x Double Grape 1x Strawberry Nuggets, 2x Alien v Triangle, 4x Northern Cheese Haze, 2x Forgotten Cookies will be going in the green house and outside along with the Dinafems. All of our spots are south facing, expecting to get 8 hours of direct sunlight a day. Including my windowsill! As for what I’m using for the grow, here’s a list.BioBizz Light Mix3L, 5L & 9L airpots.Bio Bizz Nutes- Bio Grow, Bio Bloom.Advanced Nutrients Calmag, if required.Mycorrhizal Fungi (Great White)Things I’m thinking of adding--Some sort of top feed to increase themicrobial life in the soil.- A foliar feed.My water source is nice and soft water from a local source. I was consideringgetting a ph meter a couple of years ago, but I’ve had no issue with my tap water in plenty of years growing. I believe the Light Mix will act as a buffer to and that has a pH of 6.2 if I remember correctly! The latitude where I am is 54 If anyone is interested to know.Let me know what you think! Here are a couple pictures of the Double Grape and Strawberry Nuggets that are currently on my windowsill. They are exactly 7days old from sprout as of 11 o’clock this morningUK time. I’m not sure why the images have been rotated but hey ho! Feel free to ask any questions or just drop a comment thanks guys!

  6. Ahoy all, As we edge closer and closer to the Spring solstice I thought id get the beginning of my HSO outdoor greenhouse grow diary up and running. A huge thanks to @HSO-Mark for sorting the beanies out, and doing such a stellar job each year organising these competitions! This year is my first time running HSO genetics and I'm very excited to say that ill be running the Blue Dream Auto along side the beautiful looking Bubba's Gift Photo. Blue dream has legendary status across the pond, i'm not sure i've tried this strain before either - so for those two reasons alone. I thought why not!? Also with the photo being a sativa dom hybrid, its something I wouldn't attempt here in the UK outdoor climate, but the auto version from HSO - lets give it a go! Secondly I opted for the Bubba's Gift - mainly because it caught my eye with the stunning colours & because it is listed as a late September finisher. The majority of the other HSO strains were listed as finishing later than this which i'm not sure would do so well here at lat 51. (& after seeing the pot noodle challenge - might give it a go myself this year too!) Patiently awaiting the beans to arrive, but in the mean time theres always plenty of prep and reading to be done. The seeds will be grown in the greenhouse and garden alongside a few Dinafem selections. (Diary in the Dinafem 2019 outdoor comp sub) Ill keep you all updated when the ship sets sail. Atb and wishing you all a bountiful season ahead. Y'arrrrrrrrrr, LP
  7. Ahoy me' hearties, Glad you could all join me for this special voyage into uncharted waters for the 2019 season - lets hope its a good'n! Firstly many thanks to @Dinafem-Mark and Dinafem for making all this happen, providing the beans and running this successful competition for multiple years now! Its a first time for me, I just hope I can do the strains I opted for justice. The girls will be getting under sail at Lat 51 and will be growing in the greenhouse and in the garden. I have opted for two strains, the first being the infamous Critical + 2.0. The hardiness of this strain due to the inbred lineage of a moisture resistant phenotype attracted me, as any outdoor grower has surely ran into the dreaded botrytis when approaching harvest time. Also a 70/30 indica/ sativa hybrid, coupled with a late September finish ticks all the boxes for me. The second of the Dinafem selection I have opted for is the White Widow Auto. Ive seen multiple posts on here praising this auto strain - I believe the aliens had several good results and remember one or two others commenting that it was always a solid performer even at lats several degrees higher than me. Ill be using Jacks Magic (50%) with perlite (50%) to loosen & aerate the medium. In terms of feeding - ill probably use Tomorite or something that I have to hand. Generally i've done just fine without worrying too much about feeding and all that jazz. Cheers and all the best!

  9. Hello everyone Second grow on the go now and have decided to give some autoflowering seeds a go. Everything seems to have gone OK so far until the plants started to look how you can see in the photos below. At first I thought it may have been nute splash burn as I knew I had splashed the leaves when watering, however, it seems to be getting a bit worse and is affecting some newer growth which makes me think it is more likely to be something else. They're 2 and a half weeks old from seed and are currently on 2.5ml/l of Growers Ark a+b (hard water), 2.5ml/l extra traces and 2.5ml/l of root tonic. Temperatures have been fine, got a tube heater on the go and an oil radiator coming on every now and then to keep everything nice and warm, temps are between 24-28. Humidity has been quite low, usually about 30% sometimes a bit higher, been giving them a mist with some water to try and make up for it and have got a large bowl of water by the passive intake to try and help bring it up a bit. I've got some calmag on hand just want to get your opinions before I potentially give the plants something they don't need. Cheers.

  11. Hi all, I have a question that I can't seem to find the answer to on the usual search engine searches ..... I recently planted 2 seeds .... 1 has come out perfectly looking and going great... The other I fear has had an issue with damping off.... I see a white spot on the stem and it just generally doesn't look a healthy plant ... From what I can gather the plant isn't going to make a recovery therefore I have taken it out of the tent. My question is ... The soil the seedling was in is this now contaminated ? If I plant another seed in the same soil am I going to risk the same thing happening ? Thanks for the help CannaZ123
  12. Seen this on a few grows of late, on most plants to a lesser or greater extent. See how the leaves don't spread out, on some plants it's the odd couple but this plant there's quite a few and it's a fair bit behind They are about 5-6 weeks in, autoflowers, and have had it with various strains in the past. No other issues really, the other 3 plants in the tent are growing fine apart from the odd leaf. Temps have been well within range, rh 40+, lights either 400w or 600w Do have a slight issue with mag at some stages but have only misted a couple of the lower fan leaves a few times. Overfed perhaps ? tia

  19. Hi All, This is my first post. And am just after some advice on what strains people have used to maximize yield etc while just doing LST ..... I am currently on my 2nd grow both have been very successful in my eyes.(I'm a fiend for a YouTube video and have researched everything:-) ) My issue with my last grow is the strains I used did not fill my grow space therefore felt I could go with a larger this time was 1x RQS critical auto and 1x diesel auto both very short strains(1x critical seed didn't wanna pop) 1st grow was 3x RQS white widow auto ( should of left growing longer but as was 1st grow did not LST or anything) Anyway ... Back to the question .... Best auto strain for LST ?? People thoughts ? Thanks CannaZ123
