  2. Hi! I just completed my first autoflower grow and I would like to share it with you. I have grown before, in soil and in coco, but not for a few years, and photoperiod only. The only things I bought for this grow were the seeds, some coco, and some Blumat drippers, which I have not used before. I grew one Northern Light (Royal Queen) and two Fast Bud #2 (Sweet Seeds). They were started in Root Riot cubes in the airing cupboard. As soon as they appeared (three days) I put them in to coco in airpots with around 7l of coco each (yellow base airpots with the base slightly higher) and in to the tent under 250w HPS. I stuck to 20/4 all the way through. I used some old Canna Coco A&B which had past their best before date a year before the grow started, plus a tiny bit of pound shop PK boost, drip clean, and pH down. I kept the EC between about 0.8 and 1.1 mostly (tapwater base 0.4) but I think I started a little lower and went slightly higher at points just for the Northern Light. I hand watered for the first couple of weeks before I set up my Blumat drippers, which I was using for the first time. I tried to keep temperatures between 18 and 25 in the tent though occasionally it may have dropped to 16. I actually had three Fast Bud #2 to start with however one was culled. I have some small USB fans I used in the tent for circulation, I set one up about 10 or 12 days or so after the HPS went up, too early. After a couple of days it had damaged the one plant. I had planted enough seeds to be able to scrap some so while I was annoyed at my mistake I wasn't too worried. I LST'd all plants and did a tiny bit of supercropping on the Northern Light. Once the tent filled up I took the small FB#2 out. The NL took over half the tent and had a footprint of two square feet, while the two FB2 fitted/squeezed into a square foot each. The NL stretched more and while they all started flowering at the same time (just after three weeks) it was slower to develop flowers than the FB2s. I took the FB2s out of the tent 62 days after I switched the HPS on. They could have had a bit longer perhaps but circumstances. They looked more or less done. I trained the NL further to fill the tent, it was obvious it had a while longer to grow at this point and the tent was full again almost immediately. The NL kept on growing and growing so it went on until day 96 before I cut it down. I took a few photos of the grow near the end, after I took the FB2s out. Here is the Northern Light on day 86, in the tent under the HPS: Some budshots from the same day: Hunting trichomes on day 89: On day 92 I cut off about an ounce worth and to look closely at trichomes, and decided to finish the flush and harvest the rest: Here's a sunbathing bud on day 92 unaware of what is about to happen: Switched the HPS off on day 96: Final budshots: Out of the tent: After the chop: Drying in the tent:

  5. Heya all, Just wondering if someone could chime in about their experience with a tube heater in a DR60 or hydrolab 60 or a 60x60x140 grow space. Dilemma: lights off, temperatures are reaching a low of 18C at the moment. I'm on a 20/4 light schedule - the tent is in a cupboard, passive circulation using a 100mm RVK when lights are off with a 120mm pc fan just below the lights. When lights are on, the ambient air is fine at canopy 25-26C and ~22-24 ground, helped further by a 100mm inline intake and two 6" fans which all come on. The problem lies therefore with the lights off, with temps reaching 18C, I brought the tube heater to help but having measured it at its peak, it gives off ~80-90C. Without the use of a thermostat plug in or probe like root-it, how would one go about using a timer to generate heat inside the tent? Would a 30 min on/off for the 4 hours lights-out suffice?
