  1. 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!
  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 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...
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Hey everyone -- hope we all have a successful outdoor grow this time around GLGLGL
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. Had a catch up with a friend the other day, he's going to be buying a boat to live on this year and we got chatting about the possibility of setting up a little 1 or 2 plant grow drobe.. Has anyone done this before or know of it being done? I've searched on here and google for boat grows and couldn't find anything.. It must have been done before surely!? Do you think with a solar panel and leisure batteries, you would have enough juice to power a little 250 HPS or CFL and a little fan? What ya reckon!? He's not a big smoker.. Q a week if that. So would only need 2oz every 2 months. Can get a nice 7 week cut, 2x ounce plants every 7 weeks then a week to dry!? Be interested to read your thoughts on it UK420

  16. Hi guys, as the title states, i am looking for the highest yielder for INDOOR grow (in terms of dried and cured buds) that has a 50% sativa and a 50% indica in it and has a ratio of 1:1 thc:cbd. Which one is the best strain? Only feminized seeds please. Thank you Cheers riddly
  17. I'll tell you a bit about myself..I am currently living in the England, United Kingdom. I smoke daily and looking at doing my first indoor grow.I live by myself, I have my own attic (not shared attic) My main issue is the smell.. I need the smell to be virtually non-existent from the house & neighbours.I will also do a grow journal and keep everyone updated!I am currently looking at doing an indoor attic grow.. Using soil.. 5 plants of White Diesel haze automatic in 10 litre pots in a 1.2 x 1.2 x 2m (600D) running using 600w magnetic ballast - 600w dual specturm HPS bulb.Extraction: 4" (100mm) CARBON GARDEN Carbon Filter (40cm High) - VORTEX 4 inch (100mm) In-line Ducting FanDo you think the neighbours or house guests will be able to smell the grow?Stealth is my #1 priority Thank-you!
  18. So, I hail from the north of england and have jus started my second grow. A little about my first.... it was complete noob attempt with only advice from one or two people I know and the rest online which tbf is great but only reading other people's question and answers doesn't always help, so here I am! Anyhow it didn't to turn out bad at all, considering poor basic set up and using just guessed estimates on feeding with poor ventilation system, no ph testing the filter on the floor and no intake fan so yeah as you can see any return you would be happy with and I returned 560g of very decent, strong effecting buds yet no smell unless you grind up which I believe now is due to my drying skills but that for another time....So after getting my hands on the basics I'm away on my second hence finally getting my ass into gear and signing up. My cuurent grow. I've upgraded parts to a limit I could afford and changed my feeding etc.....So I have a 3m x 1.5 m x 1.6m roof cube tent. My carbon filter with fan attached is now hanging at the top of the tent, ducting leading out of the tent. At the opposite end I have intake fan with ducting leading into the tent. Inside a big oscillating fan along with 2 small 6 inch clip ons. As for lights I have 2 600w hps lights connected to 2 digital ballasts ranging from 200w to 600w(running 1 light at the moment, later explains) I don't think it's a bad set up but any advice but be highly welcome I will try attach photos if possible. The feed i have opted for this time is old school orig canna a & b, rhizo, cannazym and then my own additives down the line which include bud blood, bloomblastic and big bud. I'm now oh testing my water to around 6.0 I believe it is that is best, well between 5.8 and 6.0? ..... if your still reading my long my long winded essay on this Saturday night then I do seek some advice as always! Firstly ..... I put 10 cuttings into 12 l fabric pots on Thursday night. They are currently sat under just 1 light, running at 400w as I've been told to up to 600w and bring the other light in once they have rooted in there new pots, is this the case? Or should I get more light wattage on the baby's. They are also sat 55cm away from the tallest cutting although they are all pretty even, is this correct? I'm also running them 24/7 right this second as I've read this is jus as good or even better then 18/6, is this a matter of opinion or factual? Last time I ran 18/6 for 5 weeks before switching to flower, I'm worried if I do 4 weeks of 24/7 I will kill them or something bad etc? I have been feeding them less then the table says from canna as ive always read it's very high feeds from them, I dropped a&b to 10ml of each obvs, and 25ml of rhizo. I pre fed the cocoa before potting the cuttings in with this mix. but I didn't feed aagain once they was in the cocoa, should I have give them a slight feed again? I'm now around 48 hours later so going to check to see if needs another feed tonight if it does then the same feed as the first I probs will go for before I up it, or should I up the feed already? If your still awake i award you, and for any advice and help thankyou! Hope to hear from you all
  19. Hey guys, i got a t5 flourecent tube for propagation but I can't seem to work out how I can hang this? The manufacturers instructions state you cab leave the light on top of the propogator lid because it's only 26w. Was worried that this might be a fire risk though. The only other thing I have is ratchet straps. Also wondering what is the best light schedule for seedlings? Help would be appreciated, thanks :-)
  20. OUTDOOR DINAFEM AMNESIA/CRITICAL JACK AUTO DIARY PREPARING THE BED I started work on the bed well inavance of planting tuning over and removing the garden soil so i was left with a 2ft hole to add my soil mix to later After a few days of turning over i added some perlite ,vermiculite,locally sourced chicken manure,bone meal and mixed in i covered bed with black plastic to stop weed growth (not the good kind) DAY ONE (SEED) 16/6/17 Welcome all to my 2017 auto diary so lets get started Here is a few pics of the great packaging you get from the @Dinafem-Mark guys So lets get started i decided on a nice layed back grow so i rolled a nice big blue cheese joint and grabbed my self some starter pots coz i have autos i dont want to faff around with transfers so i used this method to limit root stress mixed up some perlite and coco soaked with rain water and rhizo ph'd to 5.8 popped the seeds in and left the pots in diy prop at botom of a shaded seedling greenhouse The temps you see on the above hygro meter are from wierless probe's. The top reading is the wierless probe in prop box readng 26.8c and 84% RH NICE WARM AND SWEATY SPOT ON FOR MY MAGIC BEANS The bottom reading is from the actual station showing nearly a 10c drop just a few inches above the prop box its important to keep close eye on temps and RH during the first few weeks
  21. Hi all my new green fingered friends, I've read through the entire (37 pages)thread of grow tents reviews, and there is no mention of the lighthouse grow tents. I'm looking at the 1.2 x1.2 x2.0 m lighthouse max tent and would love to hear what people think of it. Its priced the same as the Bud Box pro 1.2msq and in my local hydroponics shop (hull hydroponics) both are set up to view. I cant decide which one to go for!!! And to confuse things a little more, i'm also looking at the green qube 1.2msq tent too. Please let me know what you guys think of the lighthouse max tents (NB I'm not considering the budget lighthouse lite tents) Andy

  24. 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.
  25. 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.
