  1. How do As I have an unexpected gap between grows, I've decided to pop 3 of the limited edition tangy tree kindly donated by @Seedstockers-Mark Many thanks as always I soaked them in a glass of warm water for 24 hours (they all had sunk when I checked them) then put them between 2 damp cotton wool pads in a plastic tub. They are big ol seeds, hopefully that will translate to big ol plants All 3 have tails sprouting after 48 hours, so no germing issues with the tangy tree like some have had with others in the limited edition range.
  2. Evening all, this year I’m planning on a small garden grow. 3 16ltr fabric pots I was wondering if anyone could recommend a decent all round compost. Thanks.
  3. Hello everyone, I am an organic noob and just started to learn ... Need some help to identify these fungi ... I dumped some organic matter (old roses, some old stems and leaves from previous harvests) into my 2 years old Eco Life living compost. Watering with Humic and Fulvic acid from time to time. These guys appeared after 5 days. Are they beneficial fungi or rot ? On pic below is a black patch which is concerning me ... Do I need add more soil/compost to cover it or i need turn it every day or do nothing .... Thanks
  4. Hi all. I see that Homebase is now selling an organic, peat-free compost by Supagrow. I was just wondering if antibody had tried it yet?
  5. Howdy folks, welcome to my diary for Seedstockers Mac & Crack Autofower kindly donated by @Seedstockers-Mark Ive popped 3 MAC seeds into a glass containing 1% hydrogen peroxide (made by diluting 12% HP with warm water at 20'C ) and allowed to soak in the airing cupboard @ approx 23'C After 48hrs the seeds had sank (with a tap from a finger), the seeds were removed from the soaking solution and placed onto a damp piece of kitchen towel. The towel was folded over to cover the seeds, placed in sealed tupperware container and put back in the airing cuboard @ approx 23'C. I didnt expect much progress, so didnt check for 48hrs - after opening the paper towel I was in for a bit of a suprise. Ive never seen anything like it, massively long tap roots, one was 2 inch long after 48hrs - unreal
  6. High all, here we go then make ya self comfy. A massive thank you to @HSO-Mark for these seeds. Looking forward to watching everyone else's diaries develop too. Gonna be a bit (or alot) of California Sunshine in the UK for the late winter blues I had 5 Lemon Thai Kush and 5 Chemdawg feminised seeds arrive, and they were put pretty much straight into compost... Chemdawg Lemon Thai Kush all the LTK popped up, and 3 of the Chemdawg's did too. Happy with that. I had a spare 1.2m roof qube empty (been waiting years to say that!!), so they're already out of my little veg cab, in the tent under 600w of hps. They look happy, and are growing quickly now they're in the big tent with lots of space, airflow and light. Just given water uptill yesterday. I thought i'd try some root stim. Went with biobizz as i'm using thier grow and bloom. Didn't clock that it's fecking £40 till after i bought it it better be good!! Just tweaked my set-up a bit, and i'm extracting both tents straight outside now, instead of 'vaguely poiting towards a window' and it feels much better all round. Not sure how i'm going to play this grow yet. My self imposed constraint is that i would like to try and get both tents in sync, harvesting one every 5/6 weeks. For that to happen, i would need to flip this tent to 12/12 in about 4 weeks. I have various cuttings from my previous and current grow i can add to or replace with. For now i'm thinking to add 4 plants from my cut's. That should work out about right, aiming for twelve plants in 7.5 ltr pots Also hoping to get the same seeds but in regular versions and get hacking, but for now, i'll focus on these. Nice one, Tigs
  7. Hi guys and gals, welcome to my Panty Punch Auto grow diary. I started one over at the seedstockers section but now I think the auto section is the best place for it I think, famous last words, I have cracked my grow problems, using DLI as a measure to grow by and epsom salts to amend my low mg water. I have been praying to the gods of ganja for a plentiful harvest heres the girls day 1 . and heres the DLI chart I will be roughly following
  8. Hey guys, Im wondering where to get good base soil potting mix for the purpose of building quality soil for no till/clackamas coot soil recipe. Most of the base soils are complete crap, infected and infested. I would like to buy something in big package so I would mix it in larger batch and then left it to cook. I was suggested to buy compo sanna but they only make small packages which are quite pricy. I would be very grateful for your help since Im looking forward to solve this issue for very long time ( years) and trying out commercially available mainstream soils only made my heart cry when I saw the plants were suffering. I originally posted this into different thread and since building a soil is basically composting Im posting it here.
  9. I've been using BioBizz light mix for the past couple of years with decent results, but fancied a change. Light mix suffers from quite a lot of sinkage when watered, and think this gradual compaction was restricting roots. So, I did some research and a lot of growers on the forum suggested Clover MPC. I got a 60L bag of clover, which unfortunately was delivered damaged with 20% missing, but still had enough to start a few autos. I'm running an Auto Ultimate in a 5 gallon pot, and a Strawberry Cheesecake Auto in a 1 gallon using clover. So far, so good. Love the texture and can already tell there is less sinkage and pots are drying slightly quicker. A good indication of improved oxygenation. Plants are a week old and loving the new soil. So, a massive thanks for the advice!

    And in the jars they go. Will leave these until Autumn before trying a sample or 3. Think I overdried a bit but hope moisture evens out in the jars. Onwards!
