  1. So I have a Bay 6 XL loft tent running a Telos-0008 and only currently have a 4" extraction fan sucking through a Ox carbon filter. I am looking to upgrade my ventilation system and having a intake fan paired with a fan speed controller to keep the environment dialled in. I am considering venting into a box buried underneath the shed filled with woodchips and some kind of oil or smell neutraliser, as im paranoid that my Sticky Beast Autos are going to stink to high heaven come flower ripening time and my neighbours are going to suss me out. Has anyone ever done something like this before ? Im hoping that if I rig it up properly and get a decent fan system inside the tent and outside in the shed venting down the same ducting into the box and then out into the underneath of the shed I can kill a lot of the odour and stay stealth - thoughts please?
  2. Ok so i am growing 4 autos atm , i am growing more or less by the plant magic schedule for organics. Now that being said they are for photoperiod time lines, one my plants has just started pre flowering and i am still dosing grow because i heard / read that a mistake most make is feeding bloom soon as see pre flowers when in fact you should carry on with the grow nutes until most stretching stops ( around 2 weeks after pre flower?) I was just wondering once i start on the bloom how long shall i feed it with autos? Since in 2 weeks time my plants be 5-6 weeks old .... The grow scedual says dose bloom until week nine of flowering but obviously 9 weeks from now i should already be chopped and curing / smoking would you say i feed bloom until the leaves start yellowing off with age then stop bloom and week flush or would that be too soon / late ? Are there any visual cues i should look for to know its time to stop using the nutes ? Since my 4 seeds are different strains and will have different growth rates / lifespans a visual que to stop using nutes will be handy if there is one ? Maybe when most hairs are brownish stop dosing , or trinchcomes become cloudy stop etc etc I know ive still got a long way to go to be worrying about it but just thought id ask now rather than panic later haha Edit- also my light scedual is currently 20 / 4 should i go 24/7 through out budding or stay times i am already?
  3. So how did you guys get into growing in the great outdoors? What made you come up with the idea? Why did you start? Did you make any vital mistakes? What strain? How many plants? What was your yield? What year did you start? Just curious Provocateur.
  4. I found someones plot today I'm sure! I was out "walking my invisible dog" when I came across it. There was about 30 holes all dug out. I searched the area and found a spade, some bags of manure, chicken wire and half a bottle of Lucozade lol. If this is a guerilla grower preparing for this season then I'm not sure what to do? I personally think this area is way too easy to come across and wouldn't bother if it was me. Advice lads?? Provocateur.
  5. So I’m currently setting up my grow room, it’s a 2.0m(L)x 1.2m(W)x 2.0m(H) grow tent and I have 2 600watt gravitas. I’m going to be growing mainly stardawg but I’m unsure of how many plants and what size pots I should use. I was thinking 10 plants all in 10 litre pots?? Anybody know if this would work if so what would it yield and if not what else should I do?
  6. Hi guys, been looking into leds a bit more and seen some amazing results with skyline 400w leds. Has anybody bought these or got any experience with them? or even better got a link to a diary with them? Only seen one diary on here with them and results were good to say the least. Thanks.
  7. So I'm talking a 2ft tall and 1.5 ft width, cupboard. Got a lend of a 300w LED but concerns it's taking up a lot of extra space and electricity. Should I get normal bulbs instead and if so what ones would work best. I have 2 pc cooling fans built into my cupboard. The soil mix I'm gonna use is 1pt perlite: 1pt vermilite: 3pt compost: 1pt used coffee grinds. Ps this is my first ever grow and post to this website so that's my cherry popped to this
  8. Hi all New to the forum and this is my first post/question im sure there will be many more to come So im completely new to the whole idea of growing my own but it is something that i have been wanting to do for a few years now. I bought a 3.5 few weeks ago that contained a few bag seeds and thought i would have a play about using these before buying any proper cuttings or seeds.and investing in equipment How long before they need to go under light ? / what is the next steps i need to make ? i currently have them sat on the windowsill in a small propigator one has started to show the other 3 are coming through slowly too any information/help/tips is much appreciated thanks
  9. Yo ,Hows it going Recently thought about doing a grow outdoors in Scottish weather, got some Early Skunk Auto Flowering seeds from sensi seeds, heard they were easy to grow for 1st timers looked at reviews and seemed amazing and was wondering if anyone could give me some tips/help from start to finish what do to , just what soil should I use outdoors, feed , times of year to start etc its quite cold over here still but summer is coming......
  10. Hi, iv been given a small plant by a mate, he got it from a friend but he dosnt smoke so gave it me. It’s a single very small shoot at the min with a couple of tiny leaves sprouting, It’s Only about 50mm tall. However iv never grown weed before have zero kit and not untending to buy any for 1 plant. Just after some very basic tips like how often to water, what sort of pot and soil to use, when to harvest etc. To get the best weed given the lack of UV lighting and kit Thanks for any advice
  11. Hi guys hope you all have a great weekend I’ve got a question or two as usual. I have my final grow room going up today it’s a 2m - 1m - 2m grow tent as pictured it’s a tight squeeze and I can just get it in but I will only be able to gain access to the right door. My Dinafem @Dinafem-Mark seeds have been dispatched I have ordered 10 xxl white widow and got a couple of amnesia xxl freebies as well. I dont one want to crowd the space too much and with only having access to the right side I will need a decent walk in area as well to access the left plants water and lst them etc. Im wanting to put 2 or 3 hps lights in depending on temperatures. Was thinking towards 11 litre coco pots but really want to try 20 litre coco airpots now and put trays on castor wheels, got this idea off @AutoMaster so I can make the most use out of the space by turning them frequently. How about 6 plants altogether? 4 to the left and 2 to the right so that leaves a decent walk way for me. I can then put 2 lights to the left and 1 to the right. If temperatures too high I’ll put 2 6inch boosters. I’ve got 8” hyper thresh stealth fan and mountain air filter but this is sharing room next door as well as it was too powerful for just that room. Thanks for looking.
  12. Hi there, looking for some help on what may be wrong with my plants. Some leaves look very strange, see images below. They pick back up but then others go like this, almost like they are being rated down one side of the leaf but no sign of pests! I am growing in coco, fabric pots, 600w hps, have done 2 weeks cuttings/seedlings am now on second week veg. Transplanted into bigger pots last night not that this means anything as the leaves have been like this for a couple weeks. Feed bucket stays in my Grow room that I built (1.2x1.2x1.9) so not cold feed. Also looking for advice whether I should start stress training at all, if so what method and how do you recommend? thanks in advance
  13. Can someone help with what this may be? some of my leaves look very strange, almost look like they’re being eaten but no signs of pests at all! They have done two weeks seedlings, now into 2nd week veg.
  14. Hi people, some of you may have read my new member post about my new LED setup that I’m going to be testing out (only grown with hps/hid for years) as I said in there it’s more of an experiment..... i will be doing a long veg with the plants I choose for the actual run (I haven’t actually chosen my strains yet so any ideas would be great!) at the minute I’ve got one purple bud auto by white label seeds under one of the lights as a little test run, she is about 2 weeks into flower and has been LST’d since she was about 3 weeks old, nothing exciting but just a little update and an introduction to the proper grow when a further 3 LED’s and 3 300W CFL’s will be added, pictures to come when I figure out how to post them peace!
  15. 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.
  16. Hi forum lurker for many years, first successful grow, had a couple of previous grows all outdoor which in some way have failed, bad weather...bad choices..all my fault!! anyway i decided to pop 3 seeds, but after my partner whining about the neighbours smelling, i gave 2 to my pal to finish at his. The one i kept was DP Auto Glueberry OG, i think i panicked as weather had been so good and was threating to rain so chopped a little premature. so here goes, not many pics as i never intended to do a diary just chuffed it panned out so well for a novice.. Germinated 3rd May 2018 Wet paper towel method then transfered straight into the final pots 12litre root nurse fabric pots these were put in a temporary greenhouse untill established. Heres the DP auto glueberry OG just poking through.... Not much content as i was mega busy with work and just let them do there thing for first few weeks Others which were gifted to a friend mid grow as smell and neighbour activity Major jump in growth on next as weather picked up crazy end of may/ start of June was taking so much water was unreal. Other strains included, CBD lemon potion and Auto Daquiri Lime, wish i kept that one too as that finished mega in my friends garden but oh well...
  17. Hi everyone! New to this forum but I’m currently growing two Blue dream autos that are in flower and I can’t remember when I germinated the seeds so I’m struggling to know far along my girls are! I have a picture of the seedlings with there first true leaves on the 30th of June. Any idea how much longer I’ve got till harvest?https://m.imgur.com/a/pA5GoVN
  18. Hi, I started to grow 5 Super silver haze and 1 white widow about 2 weeks ago using hyrdro DWC method. Then I discovered I will need to move house in about 2 months! I know I chose a sativa which takes a long time, but what hope do I have of finishing these before I have to move? I really don't want to bin them after spending so much time/money thus far... Am I better off swapping them out for a quick growing variety? Is there anything that can be done to get smaller but faster results? Cheers
  19. Hi all, this is only my second post so far, I am looking at setting up a bigger scale grow with a friend. I have grown a few plants in the past but never been really serious more as a hobby to see if I can. I have a fairly good understanding of the natural growth of the plants however I have only ever used soil and water I have never added any nutes or had them under lights the full process. My last grow went fairly badly long story short I started them naturally then put them under lights to flower but they didn't grow very well buds were loose no density at all and a very poor smoke, I wasn't expecting it to be amazing but a little better than it turned out. My current grow is going very well (in my own opinion) it seems to be thriving the first time I have ever had a plant under light from start to hopefully finish, I have discovered light burn my plant has grown too close to the light so after a little reading on the problem I decided my best option was to tie the top of the plant and pull is slightly to the side to move the plant away from the light. My plant is going well and I have only used water and grown in normal store bought soil, will the light burn affect the plant? Is there anything I can do to repair it? If I continue only to feed the plant water will the finished product be a fairly good quality smoke (as long as all goes well)? When we are ready with our new setup, from personal experiences what nutes and soil would you recommend using? What equipment would you recommend purchasing? What strains would you recommend starting with? (For good flavour and yield) Thanks for reading this post, i would appreciate any feedback, and any tips or advice anyone can offer.
  20. Hello I have recently come across the new idea for Guerilla Growing. I have seen people are growing in the top of trees. Such an amazing idea. I just wanted to ask has anyone done this in the uk? Any advice and mistakes that can be minimised? And also do I still need to protect from slugs? I will be surrounding the plant with a bet for birds but I’m not sure what pests need to be worried about up trees
  21. So i've got a bunch of Wild 4 seeds as freebies left over from last year. I think i only germinated 2 of them last year and they got eaten by birds so i've no idea if they're any good or not. The ones that survived were wild white and danish gold. Got them to finish and was really impressed by them. I have limited space at my plot so I am debating whether to just grow the wild 4, save some money and see what happens, or order some more danish gold which i know will finish. I know on the hfh site they say all the wilds are bred from the same gene pool as danish gold, guerrilla blah blah. But I have read in many other threads about the unreliability of some of their genetics and can't seem to find much on Wild 4. Has anybody any experience with these in the past?
  22. hey folks, I went to the hydro shop today to buy nutes but they didn't have any biobizz stuff left so I bought vitalink grow and bloom, has anyone used them before? and are they decent nutes? I also bought a bottle of canna rhizotonic, all they had was a choice between that or the PM root stim and iv already tried the PM stuff so thought I would give the canna a go, is it any good? or should I just have not bothered with it? TIA
  23. Excuse the - its-been-a-long-day-stupidity - please... Water is a tad alkaline (not, as mentioned before, acidic) - I've lowered it with a bit of lemon juice - will dig out the citric acid tomorrow... Thanks! Mods, please delete - post was pointless and a mistaken problem.
  24. 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.
  25. Hello everybody I’m going for my 1st indoor grow and I’ve chosen to give DWC a go as I’ve always wanted to master hydro. ive got a 1.2 x 1.2 x 1.8m hydrolabs tent...which is bloody lovely to be honest ive got a 600w digital ballast light with parabolic hood Rhino pro carbon filter 125x300 Ruck hi power fan with a digital fan speed controller attached to that 70l oxypot xl reservoir (with two oxygen stones) I’ve got aquarium water heaters to maintain solution temperatures A fan to circulate air inside the tent I’ve gone with canna Aqua Flores and vega , and have canna start, cannazym, rhizotonic, and canna boost accelerator as my nutes....(I’m sure there is better out there in regards to cost and results but I thought I couldn’t go wrong with them for now) i got got some silver bullet roots too just to be safe ive got a PH and EC meter with buffer solution for both ive done a test run and generally my environment has been running at... LIGHTS ON; 24.5 degrees Celsius 50% humidity LIGHTS OFF; 16.5 degrees celcius 50% humidity IM REALLY HAPPY WITH THOSE RESULTS what do u guys and girls think???? I WILL BE TRYING TO WARM THE GROW ROOM UP WHEN THE LIGHTS ARE OFF DURING THE 1ST 3 WEEKS OF FLOWER THOUGH...AS IM AWARE THAT THIS CAN PREVENT UNNECESSARY STRETCHING OF THE PLANTS DURING THAT PERIOD...would anyone be able to confirm this to be true??? Just going off previous research on that one but thought it might be a valuable tip to any grower if it’s true...? my main area of concern is the PPM of my local rap water... an R/o system is a no go for now but if all goes well I will invest in one for future grows... anyway... the PPM of my rap water is 212ppm (after I’ve put it through a filter jug)... is this fine for seedlings? Baring in mind I wanted to add some cannastart to the seedling solution... And once I start early stages of veg...will this ppm level have too much of an affect to the amount of nutes I can add at one time? Or am I just worrying about nothing? My ph is 6.5 so I will probably need to adjust with ph down to get to around 5.7-5.8 and I’m aware that this will bump my ppm levels up too...? sorry for for the essay! And cheers for reading! Experts please feed me with ur knowledge Cheers
