  1. Hey guys, I ordered a cheap tent from amazon (senua i think the brand was?) Tent arrived but it's the wrong tent, some 2m x 2m monster, 18kg package was wondering why it was so fucking heavy! Literally a box full of metal poles but no tent? Anyway, the tent i had ordered was supposed to be 60x60x140. I have to go about ordering a new one now and don't want to order the same one because it will probably be a heap of shit. I wanted to take this opportunity to ask for your recommendations? Im still tempted to go the route of a growdrobe if its cheaper
  2. Hi guys, been reading a lot of info on this site over the last few months preparing for my first grow and it's been really helpful. I decided to build a growdrobe out of 3x2s, hardboard and celotex 50mm board measuring 1.2 x 0.6 x 1.8m tall and put it in the garage. I've gone with a DWC hydro with 45l tote, 2 x 150mm air stone discs, 150mm net pot under a HLG QB260 LED light growing one plant with plan to do scrog later on. The grow started off alright, as I bought some feminised seeds off Royal Queen and went with White widow as thought it wouldn't get too tall, but now I'm on week 3 of grow and noticed that there are brown spots appearing slowly everywhere, starting at the edges of the leaves and then making it's way throughout the leaf until its half dry and crispy. This started at the bottom and worked its way up to the top leaves now. I've changed the reservoir twice, roughly every 10 days with RO water and AN Sensi grow A & B, but been really stuck for ideas as my EC is at 1.1 and PH at 5.7 - 6.1 with most the leaves are going half crispy then dying, leaving me with lots of half leaves. I've even tried adding AN cal mag xtra to no effect, thinking it was a deficiency. The only thing I can think of is that there's not enough airflow entering the growdrobe, as I have a 220m3/ hr 100mm inline fan pulling through a 100mm rhino pro carbon filter in the top right at the back venting outdoors and passive intakes (3 x 40mm waste pipes) in the bottom left intaking from garage (maybe not big enough?) I'm planning to fit a 150mm inline outtake fan and then use the 100mm inline fan as an active intake, taking fresh from outside to hopefully help with faster air exchange. I've also got a 4.5l humidifier in there, setting RH to around 55% and a circulating tower fan. I can upload some pics when I can figure out how to do it. Any suggestions would be very helpful, as I'm burning through electric for nothing at the minute. Cheers
  3. Hey everyone. After a slow start with this years 1st crop (lighting fail and need of a new grow room) all's lookin' nice now. I have decided to give auto's a try (3x HK's and 1x Peyote Crit which was a freebie) As mentioned, a slow start so I used the greenhouse - plenty of heat (which the HK's love) but lacking in light at the start so they've really shot up! But.....I have built a growdrobe - nothing flashy: 2 x fan inlets (both with covers for when needed) 1 x vent outlet above (no external fan or filter) 1 x removable veg shelf 1 x viparspectra 450w LED 2 x adjustable drop ropes & hooks These girls have had nothing but light, a soft airflow and my magic juice! (nothing special really - just pure cane molasses and Tomatorite) mostly foliar fed when really dry. Getting ready for harvest soon - more photo's to follow. The first liquid extraction is really good - although it's only leaf so very much CBD chill gear! Regards, HKD

    Growdrobe - work in progress
  6. Evening All, I have had this idea floating round my head and I'm wondering if you can let me know your thoughts and tell me if it is feasible or not. I gave up growing because of landlord inspections, I used to have a 1m x 1m tent in my spare room with a 600w hps and got some good results, I tried to time it right every time but things either over ran or what happened when I made the decision to jack it in I had a huge leak through my living room ceiling and, after almost having a heart attack, had to quickly ditch my grow week 4.5 of flower. Wounded. So my plan is to build what looks like a wardrobe on the outside with a grow box on the inside. I will use MDF to build a box that is 70 x 70 and then build a box around it which is 85 x 85 and fill the cavity with insulation, either the stuff they use in recording studios, rockwool or sound proof plasterboard. I will also have 2 doors with the outer door having same insulation. I will use a 315w CMH in an open air hood, 6 inch TD Silent fan, 8 inch carbon filter, fan silencer and acoustic ducting, a rubber mat under a tote which will be my dwc bucket and will have about 9 plants 12 12 from clone in a sog style set up. I'm hoping that by employing these techniques I can dampen the sound enough that if a landlord inspection happens, I can have a game running on my PC and have the fans mask any sound that leaks out. I don't know if all this will be in vein with a passive intake which is basically a hole that all the sound can leak out of, I only thought of the intake when I tried to draw my design. I am also unsure whether cooling will be sufficient. I have attached a crude drawing of my plan. My budget for the build is 1k and space is limited so I have a 90 x 90 x 200 area to play with. Can anyone throw out some ideas or let me know if you think this will work. Cheers,
  7. Hey…. again, I have gone ahead and made a new thread because the opening on my other thread was pretty messy and didn’t flow well As some of you might have seen from my previous thread I want to get a little grow maybe 3 or 4 plants (might be being ambitious considering the limited space I actually have) but the only room I have is a wardrobe within my bedroom. I have been reading through @Church pinned thread but the pictures are down so hard to visualize what he has achieved but none the less some very helpful stuff in there and I will be using that as a guide no doubt. I want to grow to in order to be self-sufficient and for more strains other than Lemon which appears to be all available where I am and mainly because I need to get a hobby . I don't want to sell, I doubt I even have the room for enough plants to even sell This project is just for my own selfish needs The wardrobe I will be using is a PAX from Ikea and measurements are (Length 100cm x width 60cm x height 201 cm) and is pictured below. Has anyone used these wardrobes? My concerns with my attempt at a growdrobe is that there is no space between the top of the wardrobe and the ceiling, so I won’t be able to put a chimney at the top. However, there is a gap at the back of the wardrobe and the wall of about 5inches. Could I use the back of the wardrobe as a chimney? Also, I’m very new to the cultivation of cannabis and it is feeling a bit overwhelming with the amount of information out there. I’m not too sure on what I actually need and I don’t have a clue how much this project will cost, having read a lot on the web mainly from American sources its difficult to work out costs in the UK. This is another reason why I decided to post of here so I could keep track of all the information that I will actually need for my project. I am by no means a great DIY person, I have very basic skills in that regards, so I hope the project isn't too difficult I would like help on with: 1. What can I do about my chimney situation? 2. What equipment will I need and what is the likely cost of it all? 3. How much in electricity will per grow cost? 4. Any useful links and videos in regards to growdrobe? 5. The required skill level needed to build and grown? 6. The wardrobe is in the room I sleep in, will that be an issue in regards to heat, noise and SMELL? 7. My biggest fear/worry is the police, what are the chances of getting caught? I probably have way more questions but those are my main concerns at the moment. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Have a great day R.
