2018/19 Sweet Seeds Comp Hello sweet people, and thanks for stopping in to my Sweet Seeds Competition diary. I'm really excited to be a part of this comp, and it's already lining up to be a good one. I'm hoping it will inspire me to get on top of my growing again having had an up and down 6 months, indoors and out. Some well loved characters are already up and running too. I look forward to watching all your grows and getting to know you all that bit better As ever, a massive thanks to all those involved in making this comp happen, and good luck to all those entering. Sweet Seeds were kind enough to send me 3 packs of 3 (with 4 seeds in each) to grow out for this comp. Depending on timing, i will probably chuck some more into the mix to keep things till the end. I chose Creme Caramel, Black Jack and Creme Mandarin Auto. Having never grown SS stuff befor, it was a hard choice! The first two have always seemed like old favourites to me. I've only ever read very good things about them and often see people raving about how delicious and strong they are. I've also got a sweet tooth so i've always fancied the creme caramel. Not gonna lie, the Auto was a slight mistake I had it in my head the comp went on longer than it does, and i was gonna grow the auto's outside. Realising i havn't got time, i'm going to grow them inside, obviously It's actually worked out quite well. I'm still a bit of a sceptic with auto's and have had limited success with them, indoors and out. But i'm keen to be proven wronge. Again i've only heard and seen good things about Sweet Seeds Auto's, so i'll give them my best go and remain open to being convinced Going to give them extra special treatment, and make them my focus. Wheras i normally just chuck them in to fill space during veg. @teehee @blackpoolbouncer I'm roughly combining your styles with these auto's mates, so feel free to chip with advice and point out anything you would/n't do. I might even chuck some pollen on them too For those that don't know me, I've been around the boards for a while. Used to be @tigseyjnr, but had a bit of a scare. It was unwarrented, but i'll stick with this account now. I'm in the process of setting up a new grow space in the smaller section of an old mill, with thick stone walls and a concrete floor. Work in progress, but it's effectivly a mezzanine made out of larch and other scraps, with the grow space underneath I'm venting out of a discrete window, with active and passive intakes coming from inside the building. Potentially a very stable environment, but it's not finished, and not dialled in yet. My narnia ... (eventually, those boards will be sanded up, and the crappy, treated wood will be swapped with larch. But it's all cosmetic. I just had to get these tents out of sight asap) This door opens up into an area approximatly 1.6m x 4m x 2m . I've got my two roofqubes in there at the moment, and a veg cab for mums and cuts. Eventually i'll pull the tents out and have proper individual, insulated rooms, but that's all a way off yet. For now, i'm happy with my tents.. Both have adjustable 600w HPS with parabolic shades. 6" rvk's, 6" mountain/carbo air filters, electric blankets and decent fans for air movement. Only got one sms controller at the moment. The little veg cab just has 10w t4's in.. but i 'm probably not even be using this as i'm cracking straight on with the autos under hps. I've done a bit of rearranging which means this tent is now free I popped all 4 creme caramel straight into 10ltr pots. They are under 250w hps, that will be turned up to 400, then 600 as they grow. I watered in the whole pot as I dont like watering small sections. I'll pull the cling film off as soon as they show. I shouldn't need to water again for ages As you can see, the electric blanket doing it's job (the lights had only just come on). a steady 24'c at the pots lights on and off. I dont bother taking temps anywhere else. It was bloody cold outside too I hate having empty floor space, (one of my pet hates about this style of growing autos) so i've got a few other things along side for now And the fun begins In all my grows i will be using these bits.. A compost based on coco coir and EWC. It's properly lush, straight out of the pack, available locally, no peat, and only £6 a pack. My favourite garden centre matey keeps it under cover for me too It's perfect for young plants and seedlings, but not very high in food, so i have to introduce feed after a week in the final pots. Other than that, fungi, root stim, biobizz fishmix and bloom and that's it. I do have epsom salts and harkers as back up but hopefully wont be needing them (famous last words ). Thanks again for stopping in. I'll be back with some pic's when the plants are growing Nice one SSSSSSSSSSSSwwwwwwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetttttttttttttttt!!!!
