  1. So after a few grows using RQS I decided that I would give Dinafem a go, I'm just finishing a grow that was supposed to be all RQS but due to a couple of dodgy seeds not sprouting, I bought 2 Dinafem seeds (only one grew though, maybe my fault) but the one that did has really impressed me. (2 weeks behind the RQS and the biggest plant) Grow diary here... Anyway, I have bought 4 more seeds and plan on getting these going once the current grow has finished. The seeds are... 1x Critical + 2.0 Autoflowering 1x Haze 2.0 Autoflowering 1x Blue Critical Autoflowering 1x Original Amnesia Autoflowering Set up... Old kids wardrobe (insulated and made slightly bigger) Kingbo 300w led (120w real wattage) Topplanet 300w led (120w real wattage) (Surprised how well these 2 lights have done considering they are cheapies) 2 X modified ceiling led panel lights (4000k) 80 watts Ram mixed flow extraction Rhino 4" filter 2x 4" usb fans Heat mat 600mm X 600mm Fabric pots Soil will be a mixture of pre used (once) canna soil mix / home made compost/perlite / Coco coir. Various canna / biobizz fertilizers. Pic from current grow...it's a bit rag tag but does the job... Hoping the current grow will be finished in the next couple weeks, will get onto these then. ... Watch this space...
  2. Anyone else a fan of gradually repotting auto’s? You read not to but I am a firm believer that if you don’t leave them to settle too much that it doesn’t cause early flower and seems to build a better mass. I’ve started in between 5 and 10 litre final pots but after fair results once looking at the final root ball I’ve been a mix of surprised and disappointed that there was much more potential. This one has went from a seed starter pot, to the middle sized one (both in seed and cutting soil) to its ‘final’ fabric pot in its final medium which was a b and q branded soil with no added nutrients. Also to note she was started on my window sill in a mini propagator then eventually moved outside, never saw a light. ^ This picture from today, the top three are from 8 days ago.
  3. Hey! I'm just wondering has anyone else grown Fastbuds autos? had some gorilla glue and stardawg(5 of each in 12l pots) on the go in coco 2x600watt hps 18/6. It's kind of hard to believe there are only two strains in the tent, some of the plants are humongous and others are short and fat they have all that the same feed etc but 2 of the stardawg especially seem to have vegged for 6/7 weeks and the others are almost ready, needless to say those two are like trees it's just made everything difficult because we don't know what to feed them as we are flushing some and feeding others. Have other people encountered this or could it be something we've done?
  4. please comment on these autos 1st grow

    These are two auots I had outside for a week but now moved back in as it is too cold at present in Northern Scotland. Originally grown under TL5 tube. Do you think these look OK?, they are starting to flower know. I have ordered a 450W LED, so may get them under it next week. Hopefully it may help but if not next grow should work out better. I wonder why there are big 4 inch gaps up the stem between leaves?

  6. Hey guys, this is my auto grow (perpetual) experimenting with something i came across on sinistergram ........ bio char I bought about 30 seeds over the past 2 months and just planting them with a few weeks in between 10 at a time. I'm mixing coco, biochar and worm castings for a 'soil like environment' with a coco way to grow, the biochar houses the bacteria and pulls in food, really don't know what am talking about but i'v done some youtube research n shit, i think biochar is ph up in large amounts so i've just been adding a good handful per pot and inoculating with the worm tea. I bought this drunk (img below) and it said npk 2-5-6, realized it wasn't but it's all good, this stuff is packed with micros, the N is bat shit which is unknowingly good for flower said an oldtimer once, i didn't disagree after testing, Liquid seaweed all good for denser buds with natural pgs. Anyways, my phones lost atm amma get a new one and upload some auto pics in the few days or so. Seeds -- little kushy, ak-47, ak-48, ak-49, ak-420, ak-someonesmom, and some others i forget easy :/ Lights -- 2 400w hps, 1 600w hps, and 2 mars 300w leds that i add as and when, just hang over one plant with the shit footprint. Food -- as above but with added chicken shit pellets (not much), dextrose, and some other shit Grow room -- bedroom size 20-30 plants atm, could get more at a push Trim gets turned into hash n oil (learning but doing all good!) god bless sonnyB

  8. Hey again, I'm looking for some tried, tested, and trusted genetics, I've been looking at dinafem, they seem pretty good. I tried the 'Sweet Deep Grapefruit' strain from a friend of a friend, was at least two years ago but can remember decently was very nice herb, superbly tasty, nice indica high, i'm going to be growing in a 1.2m x 1.2m space under a 600w hps so i'm thinking around four plants, aiming for three ounce or so plus a plant, more the better, two of us and we're heavy stoners, was thinking about doing a few different strains but will settle for 1 I think as I want to really dial in the eviroment as good as possible, and i'm thinking different strains will like different enviroments, seems to be the case with my greenhouse plants anyway, so I'm thinking, what strains would you guys recommend and why?
  9. Hey there, Nice to meet you all and say hello, unfortunately my first post is a bit if a call for help! So got a bit of a multi grow going on and one plant in particular is looking a little unhappy. Group shot we have clockwise from top left, #Dinafem blue Kush auto #1(the unhappy one), Critical auto, blue kush #2 and finally a Dinafem CBD auto. The BK #1 os growing in biobizz allmix as are the other two. BK#2 is in jacks magic with perlite. Alll are at week five from germ and on their second feed of plantmagic grow at 1ml/L they all have been getting until first feed silicone, root stim, maxicrop and Ecothrive Biosys. Stopped the boosters when the feed started. My water is hard, 7.8 to 8.4ph. Temps at 22 root and 27 canopy. 400W mh switched to hps last week Here are some closer photos of the particular plant. I thought that it was nute burn splashed onto the lower leaves when watering but had them out for a closer look in normal light and this one has damaged leaves all around the lower base. Any thought on what deficiency this may be? Started under 400w hps/ Basically the mh was 400w, temps were a little low (22deg C) so moved to 600W dual spec hps. Better temp and more light? Feeding started at week four so two feeds ago at half strength. Apparently they are light feeders? They are now at Thanks for the help. So doesn't look like hardness as I am at the bottom end of the scale.. My water is apparently 272ppm, so not super hard.. PH is 7.2 of water inc nutes. Runoff is 6.8. Tap water is 7.3 out the tap after sitting for 24hrs. I guess I could try a soil pH kit? Could is be lack of nutrients as I left feeding of the bk1 a little late? Also feed recommended at 2-4ml L and I started on 1ml/L? Failing that should I switch to the bloom nutes as they have a much broader spectrum of nutrients. Manganese iron etc I have a feeling its just hungry?
  10. Just wanted to put a few pics of how my plants are looking after 35 days. This is only my 2nd grow and first with autos. Ive been doing my best to follow @blackpoolbouncer excellent diary. Doing this training malarkey is very addictive. Got myself the orange buckets haha. These 5 are in bio-bizz all mix but I’m about to pop 4 more seeds in Clover Multi Purpose. I thought these 5 would be a lot wider but I’m not on that level yet so that’s why I’m planting another 4 seeds. To fill them holes in the tent. Suffered a bit with cal issues (soft water) but I think it’s under control now hopefully. There was a few yellow tips on new growth on two of the plants early on about 21 days but that’s stopped now as well.
  11. Hi guys, Second posts today sorry but having a bit of a panic!! my grown room has low ceiling height from floor to the light is about 102cm, I'm running a skyline 600 led light (300 true watt). Im worried that from the top of the pot to the light is around 75-80cm so once the plants are in and grown then might get too close to the light? whats the closets a plant should get to an led light when budding? I cant really do much apart from trying to find some shorter wider pots for the plants top reduce height and LST them plants from the get go to try and reduce the height and make them wide and bushy. does this sound like it could work? if not I might have to rethink and see if I can possible gain a bit more height which will be a massive pain. thanks
  12. So I asked on here a while ago what feeds to use on autos. The answer was bio bizz. The schedule on google doesn't include heaven. So I experimented and didn't add it. At week 6 there was hardly any buds, compared to the last crop which used heaven, and there was 6 oz easily from 3 plants. This time round it was 5 plants on 4 litre pots. Maybe too small but they seem okay. The results of using the google schedule, advice from here and online and using bio bizz has left white haired, airy buds ( if you can call them that) with no THC. I wouldn't advice anyone starting out to use this schedule found on google, bio bizz or folk on here saying bloom and grow is enough. It's a complete waste of energy and money.

Any way in order to insulate it im thinking bubble wrap any other ideas on how i can heat the inside please ???

Ive also got some broad beans on the go at the moment as well as some tulips and various other bits in bobs. I was looking at a small parrifin heater but not sure if thats such a good idea with it being of plastic :/ any tips or advice be apricated
  15. I'm pretty inexperienced when it comes to autos. I've done a few in the greenhouse and had a couple of aborted attempts indoors. I help a mate do some autos for his first grow and that went really well. It's about time I had a proper go at it. I'm going to try a run of autos in my outdoor growshed this winter. It can get very cold out there, so 20 -24 hours of light should keep it toasty for the plants. I've had a good look about and settled on 3 Bears OG from Mephisto Genetics. I've heard good things about Mephisto and seen some pics of impressive buds. I probably won't start them for around 6 weeks so any information or experiences on 3 Bears will be useful in the meantime. I bought 7 so germination rates would be particularly interesting. I've had some very poor germ rates with previous auto strains I've tried.
  16. So this is the thing with autos. THEY ARE SHIT! Frequently no mold resistance. If you look at the more experienced growers on the site you will see they have little time for autos and it is largely because they are shite. Controversial but still, shite. The extra ruderalis genes make them a weaker smoke too, not to mention the tiny yields as befits miniature plants. Its incredible the seeds are the same price as photo plants. I know its all about the early smoke and I had decent results in 2012 of all soaking wet years. It was a slugocalypse and just rained and rained. I was surprised to witness Sour 60 seeds I was given by a fellow GG (bred by MDanzig) totally smashing it. There will be the odd one come along. However I really don't think autos are worth it. The smoke from the Sour 60 was way weaker thanKC 36 or Easy sativa. Read a few recent posts abound rotting autos. This is one of the driest summers ever but just wait one or two storms and the stupid crap autos will nearly all be turning to mush.... If you are gonna get out and do prep and take that risk then grow some thoroughbred monsters instead I say. I mean just look at how superior KC 36 and P Maroc are as examples. I am not running any autos this year thank fuck and will not again. Oh I know I will go do a load of back breaking work and take risks just to grow some tiny, weak, mold prone, extortionate abberations of nature. I am too impatient to wait for the sun so I will get some 'automatic weed'... super, semi, ultra, uber, HYPER-autos that are far better than silly old patience... Auto = impatience! Some will say photos grow too big for my garden/ balcony, um Helloooo this is why it is Guerilla Growing because its not in your garden or on your balcony! That is the great benefit of the wild places whether between industrial units and trains tracks or right out in the sticks. So you can go grow some potent monsters.... Thing is Loamy there is literally NOWHERE to grow around here for full size plants. Umm just look properly or widen your territory. But I can't be arsed/too busy. So just 'man up' a bit..., stop wingeing and go do it for fucks sake. Autos = Laziness! The breeders are laughing their tits off. Buy them twice in a season! Buy more to get a higher overall yield! Autos = stupidity! And the prize for being Impatient, Lazy and Stupid is..... 'YOU THINK AUTOS ARE GREAT WHEN THEY ARE ACTUALLY SHIT' ...please re read that last line at least 7 times out loud. .... autos :rofl: What a load of wank...
  17. hi all, Using biobizz all mix and have noticed a green substance on top layer of the soil , is this algae and is it harmful? What causes it? thanks for your help
  18. Hi guys, I’m growing a couple of autos blue mystic and OG Kush in a large Argos plastic greenhouse. There are in soil bio mix light. Looking healthy, But they are only getting about 8 hours a day full sun on the greenhouse. The rest is in the shade ( because of a bloody large oak tree and the house) I think this is why they are slow growers. My OG are on there fourth set of leaves and these are nearly 4 weeks old the blues are on there 3rd set and 3 weeks old. Because these are autos will they start flowering soon? Even though they are still small? Or do the plants have to get to a certain size? Also do you think I would be better staying away from autos with my current set up? Any info would be great thank you
  19. Coming to the end of our first auto grow in coco, just wondering if anyone can give me some tips on how to flush these, I am unable to remove them from the tent. Some of the plants are ready and some are going to need another couple of weeks which is annoying. Thanks in advance!
  20. Is it ok to pick the larger fan leaves that are untuckable off autoflowers in flower?
  21. So here maybe a new idea for you all. ive come across something called the Kratky method. A hydroponics system with is just a bucket filled with water and a basket In the lid filled with perlite. Plant in the middle add nutes to water and grow outside. And it works! People have mentioned that stem rot and things would be likely but from what I’ve seen it works amazing and the buds come out beautiful. gas anyone else done this or is it just a lucky break he had? Also thing for Guerilla Growing purposes it’s amazing. Hang a bucket in a tree with an auto.
  22. Hi Once I get my head round uploading pics to here I'll share what's going on in my cheap greenhouses! I've spent less than £30 on them and less than £40-50 on seeds, soil, fertiliser and pots. In fact the bulk of the cost is pots! I have two auto's and 3 fem in right now, 3 more fem's germing and another 5 waiting to germ once this other 3 have gone into soil. Theres nothing fancy about this at all, just my first go and me muddling through it! It's so interesting reading everyone's journals and seeing the differences and problems people come up against. Excited to see this journal through!
  23. Anyone tell me if this light "LED Grow Light, 600W Dual Chips Full Specturn Grow Lamp Red Blue Plant Light for Indoor/Garden/Hydronics/Vegetable/Flowers Growth,UK Plug(10W leds)" on amazon will do for 2 plants?
  24. Well I'm coming to the end of my auto grow maybe another 10 days left I have been growing auto diesel by black skull I had 4 under a 600 watts HP's with bio bizz bloom and roughly guessing weight is 1 oz each I have had a tester and it wasnt good so the next grow will have to yeild more and better suggestions cheers
