  1. I was thinking of keeping few oscillating fans inside greenhouse and I was thinking of installing exhaust fan there too, would that be overkill?
  2. Im looking for a way to make my old glass greenhouse stealthy from prying eyes. I somehow achieved this by accident last season when I sprinkled baking soda on those windows. I wonder if there is something better that would give the glass the nasty look feeling that would make it less visible to see what is inside, or if the white paint is the only way. Thanks for the help 420 fam
  3. Hey Im curious if it is too late the plants are around 1 or under 1 m. I was thinking of digging them up to a pot and re-potting them outside at sunny place. What are you guys thinking is it too late?
  4. Hi all! I hope we are all doing well. I have a quick question before I begin this year and that is what are people’s favourite nutes? Had a fairly good year last year but feel like the nutes I used let me down so I’m just curious as to what people think are the best. I’ve heard a lot of good about biobizz, can anyone confirm this? just want something g reliable and to help out as much. Thanks in advance guys
  5. Doing a greenhouse grow, plants are currently 10 days old, but the temps outside are just too cold at the moment, and with the weary weather its just really not the best. Was looking at getting some cheap lights to keep them inside for a week or two then put outside once it heats up and the water gets a bit better. looks at the Marshydro TS600 but any other recommendations? Also would this be alright to do this, or could the sudden change to out in the greenhouse stump them?
  6. I know that Im quite late to the party but I need to revitilize my greenhouse soil asap and plant seeds right away. I hope its not too late for some outdoor plantations. I would be mostly planting regular non autos. I was thinking of buying worm castings (not sure if solid or liquid would be better) + greenhouse bioline grow and bloom as simple solution for this season MY overthinking procrastinating head wanted to build a soil but kind of never really sourced everything for the clackamas coot recipe something like ECOTHRIVE substrate in UK. I know it would be the best but what can I do for this season to still have some nice fat dancing in the wind sexy beasts? Previous season I used green house powder feeds hybrid on sativa and I did not liked it at all ( I think I used quite heavy doses and plant did not liked it)
  7. So I'm looking to try my second grow this year with some Pink kush CBD plants. Just growing 3 of the ladies but interested to do a little experiment with the different soil set ups. I have some biobizz light mix left over from last year which I will use for one. I then plan on making my own soil for the others, I was wondering what base of compost you would recommend? Just looking for something cheap and organic, I then plan to add worm casts from the compost bin which has only had fruit and veg placed inside. In one of the pots I would then add some mycorrhizal fungi. I plan on only feeding the plants organic nutes, we have worm juice which is very rich, do any of you think this could be too rich for the sensitive autos? I have then read about comfrey and nettle teas and can top dress with more worm casts and the ladies develop. The 3 plants would therefore be: Biobizz light mix with worm juice added as nutes Compost (yet to be decided) mixed with worm casts, worm juice and nettle and comfrey tea used as nutes Compost (yet to be decided) mixed with worm casts and mycorrhizal fungi, worm juice and nettle and comfrey tea used as nutes All the plants will be grown in the greenhouse. May sound like a waste of time but am keen to see the difference in yields due to different factors, Particularly interested in the difference between the plant with mycorrhizal fungi, becoming more and more fascinated with the fungus world. Any tips from you experienced growers would be welcome.
  8. Hi All. This is my first year of growing cannabis and im looking for some advice please. Ive germinated the three free seeds I got from RGS (am I allowed to name the company?). The varieties are Fighting Gorillaz Auto, Mazarilla Auto and Gorilla Auto. I did this a bit early on the 30th March in the propagator, in the greenhouse. Two girls germinated on the 5th and the Gorilla Auto on the 8th. Here is a pick from the 11th of March. The girls have been moving from the propagator at night to the greenhouse during the day. Its not ideal as I have to move them early in the morning and its still a bit cold in the greenhouse. I cant leave them in the propagator as that reaches very high temps during the day (the heat nearly killed my chillies). These are the girls as of yesterday. A couple of questions. When would you repot? I cant see any signs of roots at the bottom of the pot yet. When I do repot, from what I've read it would be best to go into their final pots. Due to the night temps I dont really want to leave them in the cold greenhouse at the moment, so Id like to keep them in these pots for the moment. When I report how deep should I plant? They look a bit leggy at the moment. I'm used to growing toms and vegetables and a lot of them I would plant up to the first set of leaves. Is this a good idea with these? Thanks.
  9. Hi all, posting on behalf of a friend. She wants to grow autos in greenhouse for edibles. Can anyone recommend a strain that will produce good yields, medium/high thc, low/med cbd? thanks for any advice
  10. Hi everyone, new member here and my first ever grow is currently in progress. Automatic Amnesia and Girl Scout Cookies, both germinated in paper towels (the GSC took a couple of days longer to pop so it’s slightly behind in its progress). Currently residing in my greenhouse in big pots. I’m heating it overnight with the thermostat on my Dyson at 22 degrees Celsius and both appear to be going well (based on pictures I’ve seen on here). Anyone able to help with on how I get photos to upload? Not having any luck and wanted to share my grow
  11. Welcome to my lazy diary Here are two tins i got my seeds from Here are two seeds germinating in kitchen paper one is i will let you guess what strains they are
  12. Here we go, I can't wait any longer. My seeds have been patiently waiting in the fridge and I have decided to start a few early to see how they go. The seeds are: Auto Daiquiri Lime - Dutch Passion Auto Brooklyn Sunrise - Dutch Passion Auto Black Domina - Sagarmatha Seeds I have just done one of each for now as I'm not expecting great growth by starting them so early. I picked out the smallest looking seeds from each packet. I started the seeds in moist kitchen towel in a Tupperware box in the airing cupboard. They all had sprouted within 36 hours and they were put into peat based potting mix in 5" pots. Here is my seedling cupboard that I have just made: There are 2 x 24W LED grow lamps that I bought from Gearbest for about £10 each. The temps in the greenhouse are still too cold so I have brought the cabinet into the house. I also have a propagation heat pad under the pots as you can see below: I have just turned on one of the bulbs at the moment as seedlings are so young. I will keep the plants in this cupboard as long as possible and then transfer into the greenhouse. The greenhouse will be heated and I may use some supplemental lighting in there also. As I have no weed to smoke until I grow it, I am urging these little girls on. I will also start some later in the year at a more optimal time and I will be taking part in the Dinafem outdoor grow comp with Critical +2.0 and Purple Afghan Kush, generously supplied by @Dinafem-Mark All comments and advice appreciated...
  13. Hi Once I get my head round uploading pics to here I'll share what's going on in my cheap greenhouses! I've spent less than £30 on them and less than £40-50 on seeds, soil, fertiliser and pots. In fact the bulk of the cost is pots! I have two auto's and 3 fem in right now, 3 more fem's germing and another 5 waiting to germ once this other 3 have gone into soil. Theres nothing fancy about this at all, just my first go and me muddling through it! It's so interesting reading everyone's journals and seeing the differences and problems people come up against. Excited to see this journal through!

  15. Hey everyone! I’m excited to be back on here and journaling my grows again. This is my second attempt (first was 3 years ago) and cannot wait to get started. Let’s grow! Here’s one of the beauty’s from last year.
  16. Hi guys. I need a bit of advice as this is my first ever grow with autos so not sure what to look out for. so my purple punch autos are just over 5 weeks old and are starting to flower. The part that has me concerned is that they haven’t really bushed out. They’ve grown up but not out . I know they still have about 3 weeks of veg stage even though they have started to flower but I am wondering if I have done something wrong? They are in a greenhouse, being fed nitrogen, the Ph is at 6 and they have been grown in their final pot to reduce stress. I don’t know if this is normal or if something has gone wrong. any advice would be greatly appreciated. cheers .
  17. Second plant I have grown here - Northern Lights (Royal queen seeds) Was lucky with the first, didn't run into any mould problems. As the title states, just hit week 10 and have woken up this morning to the dreaded mould. Noticed a very yellow leaf and pulled it and the mould was all to show. Cut away that bud site which had a decent sized bud growing but don't think that had spread. Part that worries me is the tip of the main cola where the largest bud is had mould in the tip. Cut away all the mould i could see which has taken about an 8th off the tip. Still unsure if the mould could have spread. Was hoping to run the plant for quite a few more weeks, however I don't want to lose the whole plant to mould, just looking for any advice of you more knowledgable growers. Would you cut your loses and cut the whole plant down now, or would you run it and see what happens in the next week?
  18. I had five plants in my greenhouse (mainly pineapple express autos), probably about a week or two from harvest (about 20% trichomes gone cloudy, rest still clear). The first got mouldy and I pulled it quickly because it anyway was the scrawniest and also had loads of aphids. Mould then got into my best plant which I also quickly pulled but sadly it is now also in my second best plant. I have taken off the mouldy buds but not yet pulled it. I would really like these last two and a half plants to finish properly, and we are forecast that the sun should come back this week so it might just happen. I have put an airblowing heater pointed firstly at some harvested buds to help them dry without going mouldy (mould was near/on these buds but I severely trimmed it away) and behind them the plant that I took mould branches off but left the rest. Next to it (out of picture) are two more plants which I would also love to get to maturity but I'm really scared about the mould getting them also. The drying buds are at 50 degrees C and the plant behind at about 40 C which I figure will protect from mould without killing it. I'm planning to sit tight like this, check very carefully for new mould every day, and cross my fingers. But tips much appreciated - should I just accept mould spread is inevitable and pull the lot early?!? I don't care about taste. I mainly only vape and make edibles. The main things I care about are potency and longevity (I'm still vaping 2018 weed and hope this will also last a few years).
  19. Decided to give this jazz cabbage growing a bit of a go. As such a friendly and welcoming place, thought id keep a journal as any advice is more than welcome. Have got my seeds (all autos) and hoping they are going to be alright as didn't look hugely in to this (main part i should have looked into). Have got myself some Bomb seeds- Cherry bomb and cosmic bomb Royal queen seeds- Northern Light and Seedsman- Auto blue berry. Anyone grown any of these before? Planning on germinating a seed possibly tomorrow or the next day, just waiting for my biobizz light mix soil. Then the plan is to stagger the other seeds, perhaps one or two being germinated on 420 and then one more in May. Made myself a growbox of types (MDF a cardboard box, LED lights and a fire blanket thrown together) . Planning to start the girls off in here inside for the first 3-4 weeks then into the greenhouse. Havent yet got any nutes and was wondering if any of you would recommend any specifics, looked to getting the outdoor biobizz pack but no where seems to stock it. Any advice is hugely welcomed. Hope you are all well in this crazy time, peace!
  20. Hey all hope you are doing well, on my first grow and about 6 weeks in now and getting way to high humidity readings in the greenhouse over night. Just wondered if any of you had any cheap ways to control humidity? Obviously there is the option of ventilation, heating and a dehumidifier but some of these options can be pretty costly. Have any of you ever used products such a moisture absorbers? Will an everyday bedroom humidifier work well in a greenhouse?
  21. Hi, so thanks for the help, I’m loving it so far have 2 NL AUTO’s royal queen seeds.. one plant is 4 weeks old and one is 2 weeks, staggered due to only one seed germinating originally so used a third seed.. so basically guys this is my first grow, when I started I was pretty certain that with autos it would be simple with no need to restrict light at the flowering stage and I would have seed-harvest in 9-10 weeks ish.. but since Iv been reading a lot of conflicting info as to times, some people claiming there auto’s have waited to October to flower ? just wanting a bit of clarity really on what to expect in terms of timing and yield. I know it’s all obviously dependant but il list as much specs about My grow as possible - -Northern lights auto flower royal queen seeds -11ltr fabric grow bag -biobiz all mix soil -6.5ph distilled water -quarter measurement of tomato feed (older plant) -sw England in a greenhouse with DIRECT sun about 8 hours per day thank you!! Joe
  22. Hey guys! I've brought 6 royal dwarf seeds and a pic greenhouse with buit in ventilation and shading I was wondering if anyone in the UK could tell me the best soil that can be store brought, royal dwarf is an auto flower seed and I'll be growing in fabric pots but I have a few questions! Best ph level? Best soil mix and nutrients Best temp and humidity Best companion plants And any information you could share there''s alot of confusing information out there please only people and product from the UK thanks guys!
  23. Good morning everyone, Ive started greenhouse growing this year and was just wondering what the other greenhouse growers use to bring temps down and increase airflow. I dont have an electrical outlet for the greenhouse so it would have to be battery operated and preferably not take up a lot of room as ive just started a charlottes angel in an auto pot system in there yesterday.
  24. Good Morning you beautiful people!! So to cut a long story short ive stopped growing for a good few years now, house move, kids, new job just life in general! When purchasing our new home one of my requests (demands) was that is was south facing for growing in a greenhouse. Ive got a lovely big yard with a 6x4 greenhouse set up which gets the sun from sunrise to sunset nearly. Now back then i was a total newb grower (£20) plastic greenhouse from BnM or something like that. Enough of the speal, i want to start growing again (itll be autos). Since its been many moons since my last (failed) grows and was just after some recommendations. Ive got some Canna Terra and Mills Dna left over from a few year ago are they still a viable growing medium or are there more superior soils out there now? Ive also got some Jiffys left (somewhere) do growers still use them? Rockwool? straight to pot? Airpots? fabric pots? standard plastic pots? I want these autos to take off with minimal handling. If any other greenhouse growers (preferably autos) would like to post there set up in the comments section i will be following and heeding there advice.
