  1. Hi guys, so heres a little back story of this plant... I started researching months ago and buying equipment, I had around 60 "bagseeds" (Random seeds in bits of random weed that I picked out and stored in a zip lock bag for around 2 years.) I picked 6 of the biggest looking seeds in the bag and decided to put them in coco(This was the only medium I had at the time and was just to see if they would germinate in this) all was fine a week later I had 5 seedlings 1 never made it 1 out of 5 was very small so I threw it out and was left with 4 which I had in a tent under a Viparspectra 300w After research and advise I returned this cheap LED as I could still get my money back and invested in a Scope 220 from @Diyleduk The plant was around 1 week old under the Viparspectra before I returned it then I had these plants living on a south facing window sill for 2-3 weeks Once the Scope arrived I had it under that which was already approx this size. It was started in coco and potted up into Biobizz Allmix when it was on the window sill I have been practicing with some training techniques as I am a first time grower it has been nice to have an 'experimental' plant to play with as I can almost be as rough as I like with it to see how the plant reacts (FIM and LST) This was the plant 1 week later, today I noticed the leaf was looking a bit stripy and funny and was wondering if this could be signs of MG deficiency (This plant is around 4 week old I believe) and looking back at the previous photo I can see that stripey effect starting 3 days before this photo I fed the plant 0.25ml of Biobizz Grow and Vitalink Cal Mag in 500ml of water and it drank all of this Today before I took this photo I fed the plant 0.25ml of Grow only (Plant took around 400ml before I had any run out then stopped as soon as I seen water) Temps have been sitting around 23-25 in the day time with a high of 28 and the lowest it has been was 18.9 for a night which I sorted out and my lowest temp since has been 20.05 (lights off) Lights have been around 22-24" from the top of plants and dimmed to around 110-140 Watt Thanks guys sorry if I have missed anything please ask if I did!!
  2. Hi, this is my first time ever growing and any help would be greatly appreciated. I have 2 week old seedlings and I am wondering how high my 600w hps light should be above my plants. I am growing star dawg autos. And will training them do me any good.
  3. help

    hey guys im a week into veg and i open up my tent to see this today ,i normally water them every 2-3 days and put in about 3L to each plant depending on how light they feel i use room temp water thats kept in with the plants, the one plant is really bad everything drooped over on it, they've all pretty much drooped over tho , the temps of my room been fluctuating by about 10C the last few days as the weather changes could it be something to do with that ? there was no sign of this yesterday is there something that has happened over night or is this because ive over watered them ? and if so how do i get them back to their former glory ? i feel like crying lmao someone come to the rescue and tell me its all going to be okay ?

    Just a few pictures on how it's going so far
  5. Hi guys first time grower here been a bit curious as to ask or not incase I end up sounding like a idiot. here are two seeds I got from sensi seeds they’re autoflower Sensi Skunk, I have them in their final pots ( germinated in root root ) and I am using a mixture of perlite and jOhn Innes number 2 about 70% compost 30% perlite now..... I know that these were started off too early as I mixed my dates up. one of them seems to be doing okay and the other one just seems so small and so far behind they are now 3 weeks old I was just wondering wether they will be any good or not as a lot of people have said that by 30 days they should show signs of flowering..... these two are nowhere near that lol.... I’m in Norfolk in the uk and have my two little babies in a greenhouse ( not glass ) I will try attach photos but don’t really know what I’m doing to be honest aha.... all natural no fertilisers
  6. Hey people I would like to grow my own this year. I had brought the seeds towards the end of the growing period last year, so I want to start properly this year. I have 5 seeds, all auto flowering and different varieties. I was just wondering when is the best time to start to germinate the seeds. I will start them in the window and when ready I will move them out doors in the pots, due to the smell that may be given off. I have the pucks to start the seeds off in. Should I wait till end of February or start now. Any help and advice would be much appreciated.
  7. Hi all I'm wondering if anyone as an idea how to get rid of caterpillars from a outdoor grow in plastic greenhouse a friend recommended bugclear fruit and veg which iv applied but they keep showing up. I think I'm about 5 weeks away from harvest Thanks
  8. Hello people. First of all I apologise if this is the wrong place to post or if I shouldn’t have created a thread; internet is not really my thing but I’m looking for help and information so sorry for my clumsiness in the field of blogs and forums. So this is my first time grow: 1 seed of Big Bang autoflower. I am using 600w HPS keeping it at 64cm ( 25'' ) from the plant, my pot is between 15L (4 galons) and 20L (aprox 5 gallons), and for soil I am using a mix of perlite and Wilkinson top graded soil, temperature is around 25 Celsius, humidity kept up with a humidifier at around 70% (as my plant is a just sprouted baby) growing in a 80x80x180 (2.5' x 2.5' x 5.9') with 2 4 inch fans blowing air in the tent and one 8 inch Rhino fan extracting air out of the tent. I'm just wondering what yield am I looking at. I know it's not an easy thing thing that can be said just like that as in ''plant this seed, water from time to time and expect this much'' but hopefully some of you experienced growers could tell me. Is it possible to get 4oz out of this grow without too much headache?

  10. Easybud Auto (My first ever grow!)

    From the album cheeky first auto

    This my first ever growing season. I planted 2 easybud auto's and kept them in the eves of my barn under a clear sheet. It gets VERY hot under there and this girl thrived. One of the 2 seedlings struggled in early life and grow 2 growing tips and I took the decision to sacrifice one. This plant has not done as well as the normal growing one but it's still got some nice and ultimately smokable buds so why not keep her going.
  11. Hello This year will be my first time growing plants and I aim to germinate 5. I am posting as I need help : When to germinate? when do I put them out side what condition's do they need to be in before they are put out what soil/ food will I need? I will aim to keep this topic updated as I go with pics and weekly updates, so help would be appreciated.
  12. Hello and thank you for tuning in. If someone was growing 6 plants in their greenhouse when living next door but one to a police officer would they be stupid to finish the plants in a 6x4 tent in his loft? His other neighbours saw him training the plants last week and haven't spoken to him since. The plants stink real good during the day when people are in gardens and it is an obvious smell in the wind. He recently bought a 600w hps kit, 6" fan with carbon filter, essentials, mylar, ducktape and timber for his frame. His plan was to build a 6x4ft frame, floor to ceiling then sit back and watch but on the day he started building he got a phone call saying his new boiler will be fitted along with his new loft insulation. He does not have a date of completion yet so obviously now he is stuck between a rock and a hard place. His plants mean a lot to him but his family mean more. The plants are 3 fem super skunk#1, 2 fem northern lights and 1 reg afgan. He bought the 3 skunk because it is an easy strain for first timers and the others came free. 5 of the plants are about 4ft high 2ft wide and 1 skunk was topped on the first node as an experiment and is now roughly 2ft squared. As I said earlier, they stink real good during warm weather, which has been quite regularly in his area. The plants need to be moved or risk him getting caught. He has 2 options, give the plants away or wait until the work inside the loft is complete to hide and start flowering. The plants are beautiful and were germinated on the 21st of April. They are 4 days into their 7th week and look ready for 12/12 They have only been fed organic liquid seaweed and 2 drinks of homemade stinging nettle water. Because he didn't have enough knowledge of stinging nettle water he took it away and has only fed Doff Organic Liquid Seaweed. Will this be enough through flowering stage? Basically he is looking for advice/opinions on what to do with the plants? Thank you in advance P.S ITS TIME TO REGULATE CANNABIS.
