  1. DINAFEM SEEDS Deep Sweet Grapefruit Blueberry Cookies Orange Juice All to be grown under LED First things first. Many many thanks to @Dinafem-Mark for providing the seeds gratis. Thanks also to Adam @diyleduk and @Diyleduk Craig for supplying lights and exhaust fan. Tagging in @Intense Nutrients Matt as that's the feed I'll be using. Seeds For any of you who follow my other diary/s, this will be mostly photos and hard details, keeping the word count down if I can. I intended to germinate 2 of each variety, in an ideal world. So on the 26th of August, I began this grow by dropping a couple of seeds of each variety into 3 shot glasses with warm-ish water and a couple of drops of Hydrogen Peroxide 6 percent, for 24hrs then transferred to peat pellets pre soaked with 1ml/l of Great White mycorrhizal liquid in warm(about body temp) water. The peat pellets went into a propagator with a heat mat, to keep them above 22C, in the(new) Homebox propagator tent, currently on the bottom shelf, about 2 feet(60cm) below, but off to the side under a Highlight 220 LED from Diyleduk. To begin with I had the draw on the Highlight 220 set to 60W. I didn't check them for another 24Hrs, when I did I was pleased to see the first signs of life, but I didn't take any photos of them. After a few days, all but one of the Deep Sweet Grapefruit seeds germinated. I had hoped to have at least 6 plants, to fill out the 'Secret Jardin DRW150'. For those of you unfamiliar with the DRW150, it is 150cm x 90cm x 200cm tall, more details about that when we get to that stage On the 30th of August, I put the 3 remaining seeds in to soak for 24hrs as above, then I popped them into some small pots of seed/cutting compost along with some Old Timer PM granules I had lying around. Then stuck them in the propagator with a heat mat controlled by an Inkbird hc wifi version, set to 24C. SEEDLINGS Then I managed to accidentally decapitate one of the OJ seedlings when I was sticking a heat mat under a larger plant in the same space, luckily I had already stuck the remaining seeds into shot glasses with warm-ish water and a couple of drops of Hydrogen Peroxide, in order to make up the numbers. Decapitation shots Steamy windows A couple of days later and still only 1 of the Deep Sweet Grapefruit seeds has shown any signs of life. 2 of the Orange Juice seeds have survived my handling, but all 3 did germinate. All 3 of the Blueberry Cookies seedlings have also germinated, so I will stil have a 6/8 plant grow I'm really excited about this grow, being my first time running Dinafem seeds and the fact that this is all part of my switch from growing under HPS/CMH to LED. And the first time attempting to run 2 separate flowering areas at the same time, one on at night and the other on during the day. Please feel free to comment, like and follow along for the ride Thanks again to Mark for the opportunity to run this diary(the free seeds). Sorry about the font size, like I said, I'm excited
  2. So it's been about 6 months since i've done a diary, i've done 2 crops under these par+ led's, and the results have been very poor compared against concurrent hps grow. The idea of this diary is to see what i'm doing wrong or to confirm that there's a lot of hype about led's. The comparison grow starts in a week and i'll keep them in the same diary (same strain). The plants go into system at about 2wks old..
  3. Hey all! Exhale is back for some summer fun as promised. Big thanks to @Dinafem-Mark and Dinafem for the seeds. Well here we go, I've got a new propagation tent which is kitted out with some nifty little boards from our resident lighting god @diyleduk you can check it out in depth by clicking the link "Project Nursery" in my signature. Seeds were soaked on Saturday in the usual manner, straight in the dirt. This morning I checked the tent and all 5 had pushed their way out, another 100% germination that's what I'm used to with quality feminised seeds! These will be in the Nursery for a few weeks while we get the current crop in the flower chamber cut, dried and in jars.

  24. Hello everyone, It is now officially on, and our Dinafem QC+ seeds are germinating as we speak. We've spent the last six weeks buying everything we need (final total was around £350 as we had trouble finding a tent). Now everything is good to go for our first ever grow. Here's what we have: 1m x 1m x 2m grow tent (our ceiling is exactly 2m high - it was a tight fit!) 250 -600w dimmable HPS 4" extractor fan and carbon filter 6" Fan Fabric pots at 3.8l and 10l B&Q Verve compost (the only thing we didn't get online) Perlite Biobizz Bloom and Grow Thermometer/hygrometer/Ph tester A few other bits and bobs Thanks to everyone who helped on kit selection and advice, and a big thanks to Attitude seeds. We ordered 5 QC+, and got 6 freebies pretty much next day for £40. The plan is to soak the seeds in water until they pop then put them in tissue until they're ready to go in .5 litre plastic pots. I'll try and update every day, and hopefully we can keep on top of any issues that crop up. If you see any problems before we do, please feel free to jump in with any pointers. Thanks for reading! PS, there will be plenty of photos just as soon as I can figure out how to post them - I don't think I'm at the required number of post to post photos?
  25. The title of this thread could just as easily be 'oh my god what am I doing how did I end up here' Some Background I grew photoperiod seeds for around a decade under HPS, made plenty of mistakes, grew some average weed, stopped taking so much well meaning but poor advice and eventually got to the point where I was getting OK bud and OK yields and some of that improvement was down to lurking these forums. I grew so much in 2018 that I haven't done a grow for just over a year. However, those jars full of Trainwreck and Burmese Kush are now running low and it was time to start back up. Why LED? My old stuff was looking quite tired and the tent was too big for what I was doing, so it was time for new kit. My research on what was recommended nowadays landed me back here and I saw plenty of great reports on DIYLEDUK kit. Even better, pre-orders for the new PAR+ boards had started and seemed to be a great price so I ordered the 550 package. The whole 'plug and play' promise really appealed as I am not especially handy and the prospect of giant meccano kits makes my eyes glaze over. A lot of grow diaries had shown some brilliant results and the fact that you can dim the lights easily at the turn of a button instead of being restricted to whatever options your ballast had seems to be advantageous. I also hope to be able to grow decently during the summer months with LEDs and avoid suffering from the heat problems I encountered with HPS. Why Dinafem? I distinctly remember growing 4 Dinafem Critical + and 2 Dinafem California Hash Plant photoperiod plants in the past. All of them were strong, healthy plants and they were all ready for chop at 50 days into flowering, more importantly they smoked nicely. Again, lots and lots of good reviews on these boards helped my decision. Why Autos? Those of us who are married or in long-term relationships will know some things are just non-negotiable. I'm away on holiday with my wife at a certain point and while I can leave plants drying with the house/pet-sitter here, I wouldn't want them to be looking after plants for the best part of a week when they are late in their cycle. I'd actually already got a load of Dinafem Critical + 2.0 photoperiod seeds in, but the more I looked at it, the more I thought that I was probably going to have to compromise too much on veg time and still leave myself no contingency time. My knowledge of Autos was pretty outdated (I thought they were all tiny yielding dwarf plants still - how wrong can you be?) so again I did some reading up on here. The Amnesia XXL strain is one I'd love to grow as Amnesia is a favourite of mine, but the comprehensive lifecycle time quoted and the diaries showing 100+ days meant that it was a no go for me this time around. If I had that sort of time, the Critical + 2.0 would already be up and running..... The 70-75 days quoted for the Auto Cookies looked about perfect for me so that's what I bought. @diyleduk @Dinafem-Mark
