  1. Welcome to my new rolling diary for 2019-2020. I have started fresh as I will only be documenting Dinafem strains. As most people here on uk420 know I flower my plants out in a diy cabinet with two levels hence the vertical farming reference in the title. I only use leds provided by @diyleduk , the guy knows his stuff and very easy to work with and one of uk420's sponsors. My diary will continue in the same style as normal basically picture cards with descriptions added and text to go with it, expect this diary to be picture heavy. If and when I have any details that need added or changed as things progress. As for any images I post they will be public domain and free for anyone to use just give credit to the photographer and mention uk420 off course is all I ask. Now that's out of the way im going to start of the diary with some Dinafem - Gorilla CBD seedlings. I am hoping the CBD and THC mixture of the strain will help me with some health issues. Seeds provided by @Dinafem-Mark once again thank you, your a star. I popped three seeds into water and left them over nite and then popped them into a wet paper towel until the tap roots where showing. Once the tap roots appeared they then got put into small pots of coco fiber. I soaked and rinsed the compressed coco out to get rid of all small coco peat / sand / salt particals and this has given the seedlings a very airy medium and can not be over water in any way. (got fed up buying expensive coco to have more tiny particles of coco peat than fibers and it held to much water. The coco was left to soak over night in ph6.0 water with canna calmag agent added and a very light dose of ionic hydro grow nutrient, so the medium should now be well buffered and seedlings hopefully happy. The plan is to veg these three seedlings out until they are big and healthy enough to provide me with lots of clones. If all works to plan I should be able to use ten cuttings from each plant and put them into small pots of two or three litres and do a sog grow of thirty plants. Any pheno differences should be easy seen. So with this in mind it will not be a quick turnaround with the Gorilla CBD's. Im never in a rush. I also have 1 x Dinafem - Orange Juice and 1 x Dinafem Ocean Grown Cookie plants that are in early veg atm. These will get another week or two or three in veg and then put in the flower cab to keep things going while the Gorilla CBD plants do their thing. So that's it for now, lets get the show on the go. Enjoy. Toke...
  2. Hi A big thanks to @Dinafem-Markfor the surprise seeds. A bit of a story too ... I planted the Quick Gorilla along with her Half-Sister Gorilla on 25/6. Gorilla popped after 3 days, Quick Gorilla after 5 days. May have been planting depth or shell thickness. But, who cares? They are both healthy and above ground! Here is Quick Gorilla at 4 weeks. She looked much smaller than my usual indoor plants at this stage. I'd planted her very close to mid-summer and in my head thought she'd be getting great natural light. But by mid-July it was obvious she wasn't. When I actually calculated the light she was getting it was around 15 hours, but only 9 direct and the rest was becoming poorer. So I took her inside and gave her an extra 8-10 hours under a 125W CFL. She picked up immediately. She was topped on 10/8 and flipped on 16/8. As rule of thumb I veg to 15", top, wait 5 days, flip and if she really stretches I manage the top of the plant with a light wire screen or I leave more vertical and severely lollypop for better nugs. 16/8 was chosen because it is 8 weeks after mid-summer .... Which means ... ... it is 18 weeks before winter solstice. Which gives ... 9 weeks flowering plus 1 week drying plus 8 weeks in jar. 16/8 last date for a 9wk strain with a 2 month cure ... it's Christmas weed! cheers @Dinafem-Mark She was smaller for 4 weeks then overtook the Gorilla (which is really 2 nodes bigger) in physical size quite significantly. Which is why this diary is a catch-up. She was a kind gift and I wanted to do a good diary. But she was always a lot smaller than the Gorilla and I messed up with the natural light veg. So I decided probably not a good advert ... sorry Mark ... But then with more light and a little time she recovered and is as big as my plants usually get in these pots. So here we are ... Quick Gorilla by Dinafem. The genetics surprised me. Gorilla of course but the cross is with an OG Kush Auto ... I was expecting some fast finishing indica. OG Kush Auto is ... OG Kush x Haze 2.0 Auto ... now this is getting intriguing ... Haze 2.0 Auto is ... Haze Auto x Jack Herer Haze Auto is .... Roadrunner x JYD Haze. Roadrunner is ... Lowryder x unknown Dinafem strains. So some amazing strains in her genetics ... OG Kush, Haze, Jack Herer as well as Gorilla. I'm looking forward to seeing how all these combine, could be an amazing vape. Here they are around a week into flower. Here she is today ... 15 days into flower. She's outside when the sun shines, under the 400W HPS the rest of the time so she's getting 12 hours of excellent light. Soon to get better as I've just ordered a Scope 220W from @diyleduk so she'll spend the final six weeks indoors under that. Should improve things ... She's a easy plant to grow. Doesn't like Nitrogen too much ... I'm into soil/organic tea feeds and never usually see any nutrient problems, but both Gorilla and Quick Gorilla had Nitrogen burns on a few tips. Nothing at all serious and it self corrected.
  3. My first Dinafem Grow, I've always wanted to try White Widow and Gorilla sounds amazing. I grow in reused Canna Pro Plus making organic teas from Borage, fish emulsion, worm castings and bat shit. I have a perpetual grow .. all HSO until now.
  4. with my loft tent set up and ready to grow its about time I started my first diary Around the 1st May i dropped my Dinafem Critical Mass CBD seed into water and popped it into a mini heated propagator. 24h later and it'd cracked and the tap root was starting to emerge so i placed it carefully into a rootit sponge and placed the lot into my temporary veg cabinet. she had some difficulties throwing her shell off so after a day or two i eased it off and left her to get on with things - unfortunately i hadn't noticed that a bit of shell pith was still clinging on and this prevented the cotyledons from properly opening for another day or two before i worked up the courage to cut them free with a razor blade now 5 days from germination shes starting to spread her wings a bit - shes not coming on as quick as I'd have liked but i suspect i may have left her in the closed heated prop for a little too long, plus the closed cupboard with no ventilation is hardly a perfect environment - will definitely have to have to work out something better for next time plan is to let her settle into the rootit sponge, then once she's happy move her into a 4" rockwool cube and hand water for a bit before dropping her in the NFT tray... super excited (and a little nervous) to finally have my first grow on the go - looking forward to some home grown weed in T minus 12-16 weeks and counting

    This years attempt has done much better , probably because I planted earlier and fed with better quality food

  11. Tucker's 2019 Dinafem Outdoor Auto Adventure Hello hello hello , Yep its that time of year again. The long dark and cold winter is receding aday at a time. I decided to sign up to this Dinafem outdoor competition because of the great strains on offer and i would never turn down the offer of getting a outdoor project on the go. Firstly I’d like to thank the seed sponsor @Dinafem-Mark for allowing me to take part and grow some of these marvellous Dinafem strains. For this grow diary I've decided to choose White Widow Auto and White Widow XXL Auto and some Amnesia Autos which have been sat in my fridge for a year . I’m really interested in giving auto’s a try and i can see that autos are improving in quality. Lets face it ,autos are getting better and better and i believe they will feature more and more in the coming years. Inspired by other growers on uk420. This diary/ competition entry is dedicated to growing auto strains in the somewhat unreliable English summer. Watch this space for an update .... Speak soon.
  12. 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...
  13. Last week I popped 3x Dinachem and all 3 germinated. I heard that it was Dinafems peoples favorite. growing in a 3x3 tent along with other strains from other Breeders. 300 COB LED
  14. Hey guys and gals! Well to start, I had been doing some light reading over the winter on this forum and I have to say its a delight to see such a welcoming and friendly place for info and tips! I decided to have a go at this 'grow your own' business. Ive got a south easterly facing garden with a greenhouse so it gets the sun for most of the day til about 8pm high summer. Ive even used foil insulation to increase the ray trap. Looks like a bit of a grow house! Ive got a full spectrum of veg and flowers on the go for the neighbours curiosity to be satisfied its not a dodgy grow house lol. Anyways, Ive bought Dinafem seeds, all Autos, I germinated the quick kush a few weeks ago, its doing well I think - a nice rich green. My main worry is that its had a bit of a stretch and purhaps the pot its in is a little small? I think its in a 3L pot and Ive read in a lot of threads that 5L is a good size. So my first question is do I stick with the pot or size up? My worry is I should probably size up very soon.. so its a decision that I need to make asap. Whats your thoughts? The pot has a false bottom so the roots arent soaked and a drainage hole. For Soil I used Biobizz light mix. And Ive used a little fishmix and root juice with its 2nd watering yesterday, maybe 1ml/L of rainwater. Im only watering when the pot feels light and the soil under the top starts to dry. This quick kush germinated when there was no real sun for a week so I bought a little full spec LED lamp to nurse it indoors. At the minute its still sleeping indoors with some LED before bed and spending its days in the greenhouse. Too eager to wait! Ive got a Bubba Kush and a Critical 2.0 seed ready to germinate. Those will deffo be going in bigger pots! And by the time they pop out the soil we should have lovely May sunshine, so wont be getting the LED treatment unless we have a month of rain! Cheers! Red P.S. i have photos but as yet unable to upload due to file size?
  15. Hi everyone and welcome along to my very first attempt at growing....anything....ever! ive been lurking in this site for a couple of years but have finally went out and bought myself everything (I think) I need to grow my own bush. KIT 75x75x200 budbox tent 4” td extract fan, acoustic ducting and rhino hobby cf 660w dimmable ballast + 250w mh (veg) 600w hps (flower) 6” clip fan and 9” floor fan STRAINS GROWING 2 x Dinafem White Widow 2 x Dinafem Blue Cheese im going to be attempting to follow Nebula’s Manifold technique from the GWE site as I’ve been reading up on this for years and it seems like the way for me. I had my gear running for a few days before my seeds arrived just to make sure I could control the temp and humidity and after some hammering and sawing I got it sitting steady at 24c and 30% with the 600w lamp in and ballast cranked up to 660w. Those td fans are pretty good! My seeds arrived yesterday and I immediately planted them in little biodegradable pots 3/4 filled with coco and pre-soaked with plain tap water. Once the standing water had run out the pots I placed each seed in pointy side down and covered loosely with a 1/2” layer of coco. I then popped them into my propagator and into the airing cupboard covered with a towel to keep it dark. Temps are ranging from 18c when the heating goes off and 24c when it’s on. Humidity steady around 55-60%. They’ll be staying in there until they’ve cracked the surface then it’s out of the airing cupboard and into the tent under 250w mh with the extract running. I’m using ionic nutes but will be starting them off with some formulex until probably the second set of fan leaves then switch to 1/4 strength nutes Once they're 6 nodes high it will be time for the first top and clean up then tie the branches down to begin forming my manifold. Let them grow another couple of nodes each side then it’s one last top and clean up. They’ll be vegged until just below 1/2 my desired finishing height then it’ll be in with the 600w HPS, ballast down to 400w and increase it up to 660w week by week Ill be posting pics as I go so feel free to jump in with any pointers, criticism (good and bad) or just for a blether. Below are a couple of pics of my tent and ventilation. Next photos will be when they pop their heads through to say hello cheers for reading Tent is in the en-suite of my bedroom with the shower ripped out. Kept the sink and toilet in case I spend too much time up here with the girls ha extract rigged up to an existing, unused extractor fan which vents out through the roof
  16. As some of you might have seen I’m currently doing an auto grow so this will run alongside the main diary for you Dinafem fans Mid-April two Dinafem Critical+ 2.0 seeds were soaked in water for 24 hours, then placed into small pots with seedling compost and put into a propagator. Two days later, the Critical+ had cracked and were reaching for the sky, so were placed into my MicroBox under a 23w CFL on 24 hours a day. I also had a lone MobyDick auto, it must have been 6/7 year old but sadly after a few extra days it didn’t crack. On day 6, a second 23w CFL was added to the MicroBox and the wet/dry feeding cycle started. On day 8, the pots had dried out enough so I started with some supplements… 0.5ml per litre Plant Magic Bio-Silicon 0.25ml per litre Aptus Start Booster Day 11 everything was going OK, they were maybe a little leggy, so I got them as close to the light as I dared. Day 15 was pot up day into 7L finals, they could have been potted up a day or two earlier, but it is what it is They were then placed into my tent, ballast was set to 250w and 18/6. I also added some seaweed extract into the feed so they each got around 1.25L of the following… 0.25ml per litre Aptus Start Booster 0.5ml per litre Plant Magic Bio-Silicon 1ml per litre Plant Magic Catalyst By day 23, they’d got a bit of a spurt on so I started on some LST and flicked the ballast to 400w. I also added some CalMag to the feed, more as a prevention than a cure and they each got around 2L of… 0.25ml per litre Aptus Start Booster 0.5ml per litre Plant Magic Bio-Silicon 1ml per litre Plant Magic Catalyst 0.5ml per litre Plant Magic Magne-Cal Yesterday was day 29 things are ticking along nicely and pre-flowers are now showing I’ve been continuing with some LST as they’ve had a bit of a stretch and the ballast is still set to 400w, but will be flicked to 600w in the next day or so. Feed is also still the same, but I plan to stop the Start Booster next feed. That’s all for now and keep it green
  17. Okay well another dodgee adventure begins! Poor spelling/Atrocious grammar/Haphazard updates/ Shite photography... We got it all! But if you can put up with the nonsense we might see some interesting things along the way. So I somehow managed to blag myself some bags of magic mud.. By all accounts this stuff is the shizz nizz, the bees knees, all singing, all dancing all bah a bleeding blowjob compo!! AND wait for it.... You just add water. Couldn't be simpler than that right? Even an idiot can't fuck that up surely you say?? We shall see! All this supersoil/no till malarkey is completely new to me so expect a few fuck ups along the way but I shall do my best like. Where are we then, 4 x 40L fabric pots have been filled with a bag each of ecolife, and 2L of water per pot have been added, Next i opted for these mulch mats made from jute, they just seemed a quick easy fix hopefully my laziness doesn't kick me in the balls at a later date, Next i divided 100g worms between the 4 pots, I say I divided but it fair to say the bulk went in the two front most pots, I'll pickup some more, next up I installed a blue mat in each pot and placed the feed lines in a 5L jug of water, I'm gonna leave them a couple of days to hydrate properly and for the worms to settle in. meanwhile I'll germinate 5 x dinafems og cookies, the 4 strongest looking will go into these. Next update will be in a few days when the lil ladies get into there new beds for the next few months.. Many thanks @diyleduk for the chance to try this stuff out, if you see any obvious mistakes be sure n shout plz mucka!Lol Thanks for looking folks, for now take care n I'll be back soon Nice1 dodge
