  1. Hi all, Sitting here, feasting on the first bit of dried bud from my first grow... and Its knocked my fucking socks off Just want to say thanks for all the help I have received from this community, even though I have posted every typical noob question there could be - someones been there to answer and give sound advice. Yer all fucking great, thank you
  2. I'm looking for some beginner friendly fast autos recommendations. Being a squatter plant would be helpful as there's limited head space (about 1.3 meters) The main focus needs to be speed for my first attempt while at my current location! I really wish it wasn't as it should be the least concerning factor in my books but its just the current situation As for the grow it's self I'm hoping for 2-3 autos under a 300w LED. As a totally new grower I'm looking for any recommendations on feed and pretty much anything. cheers.
  3. Hi Everyone! Brand new to the community and brand new to growing - so go easy on me! My story in short: Been a daily (nightly more accurately) smoker for 20 years, as has my missus. Supply has never been an issue for me as i have a reliable regular source and have done for half that time. I’m not sure why but it only occurred to me recently that i should have a go at growing it myself as i have the space and would love to save the cash in the long run! So like most in my position I did some reading and watched a ton of videos. There really is a huge amount of info to absorb, but i felt happy enough that i understood how to set myself up and get the plants growing an an environment that they would be happy in. Here’s the description: We’re in the garage. It’s large and has power but it’s no warmer than you would expect an outbuilding to be. Inside i’ve erected a 120x120x200 grow tent. That’s outfitted with a 450W viaspectra LED grow light (about 2 foot above the plants), a small USB fan for circulation and i have a cheap/standard extractor with carbon filter etc. These are all on the relevant timers / smartplugs. To handle the temperatures, there is a small oil radiator connected to a thermostat. My average temps are between 22-24C and RH is usually in the 40% range. As for the plants - i have germinated 2 White Widow X Big Bud (Feminized NL) and 1 8 Ball Kush (Barneys). These are all feminized. I germinated via water and paper towel method before planting seeds directly into a 10cm pot. I am using John Innes 2 potting-on soil and have added 30% additional perlite. Lights are on a 18/6 cycle. Please take a look at the images of my plants taken yesterday at 3 weeks 5 days. To me they look OK, one is a little droopy looking. EDIT: Ican't seem to upload any pics? Not sure why? Reason for the post really is advice on what to do next. I am worried that i have been underwatering them. I only water every 2 or 3 days and not much really, just out of a small water bottle. I add more when top of soil is too dry. Last night i started to worry that they need to come out of these small pots so i have ordered some 3 gallon fabric pots for a transplant. Are they ready for that? When i do transplant i was planning to use the same soil i have which has 5-6 weeks nutrients in it already from memory. After that period i plan to use biobizz nutes which i have bought already. Is this ok? I don’t want the plant to lack nutrients. Also, i am interested in doing some topping/LST etc to help improve yields. I am also interested in taking some clones to have more plants. What do you all recommend on these for a first timer? Simple topping seems sensible enough - but are they ready for it? I feel they look smaller/denser than many plants i see in online videos. All help and guidance appreciated. I am going away on the 18th for 5 days. There will be someone to water but if i need to transplant it will have to happen first. Thanks in advance!
  4. Ok so I thought everything was going really well until a couple of leaves (low leaves) on two of my plants (out of four) have now got these yellowey speckles. Anybody know what they are? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  8. https://goo.gl/images/URSedn Hi guys, First of all I’m not from the UK , I’m from Hungary but we don’t have awesome sites like this and I would apreeciate if you would help me out. I’m gonna start growing for the first time 6x Royal Queen Seeds autos. Since I live with my parents I cannot start growing inside, I can only germinate the seeds and leave them indoors for 2-3 days tops. So I have bought this mini polytunnel for the seedlings/vegetative stage. I will be growing in a forrest near a river with the sun shining on it. I wanna ask you approx. how many degrees will the polytunnel bring the heat up? Should I put it outside now so it can heat up and in a week or two I could be able to use it? I will be growing in 10L pots and I will plant the germinated seeds directly to their final pots,with a 70/30 soil perlite mix. I will visit the site every 3-5 days. Any tip and advice is really apreeciated
  9. OK, well here is where I'm at and would appreciate any advice. Been smoker for y.e.a.r.s but got to the point where I'm tired of getting ripped off by kids and have been thinking about growing for a few months now but it all looks so complicated. I mean there is no way I could wire lights/carbon filters/fans etc - I've seen complete grow tents for about 450pounds which is way out of budget but also too big. I'm only looking to grow one plant (at a time) - is that feasible? What are the odds of having a successful first grow? See the yanks are quite into space buckets but not so big over here? My biggest problem would be the smell (I love it but don't think my neighbours/landlady would ) how effective is a carbon filter? Whats a good seed to start with? All advice will be gratefully received x
