  1. Hi all, I hope you old hands can help me come up with a watering solution as Im going away for a week and I dont want my 3 girls dying on me. Each of them are taking 2 pints of water every 3 days - I was planning on flipping them this weekend, I guess I could wait a few more weeks as FEMS
  2. hi guys i wanted to ask for your advice and knowledge on this as im not sure, as the title says is this Potassium or lock out? Thanks in advance
  3. Just been to check on my little ladies and noticed these on my Sweet Skunk plant... It's the only one I'm growing so have no others to compare with of this strain - but wasn't sure if this is a male or turning? It's the worst of my four plants, is very floppy and while the others seem to be doing ok this seems rather lifeless. AHP
  4. Hi guys need your help. So I done 4/5 reasonable successful grows with Auto's in soil, plant magic with plant magic neuts under HPS light. 1mx1m tent with 4 plants. My buddy decided to get in on the act and started some auto's in same soil in small pots under LED light. Potted on the babies to 10ltr pots and kept them untill my tent was empty. 8 plants with the idea of giving me 4 and him having 4 once my latest crop was finnished. All good..my crop finnishd and new crop by my buddy transferred into my tent at about 4week old. Now the problems First we think the seeds were over watered at start as all the soil on to of pots went green an mouldy. Not that much to concern us massively. When he potted on the root system looked ok. They were doing ok but never looked really happy, untill about two weeks into bloom. Now both my and my buddy's plants look droopy and sad. Think there a right off. Two theory's Root system not good down to overwatering at seeds or shit genitics in seeds ? Just can't work out why both our plants now look the same and have same problems.
  5. Hey up lads, I have seen quite a few people on here use the eco technics fan controller and I am in desperate need of help. basically I have been using it with out any problems with a system air rvk. Working perfectly great piece of equipment. anyway got some cash so thought I would treat me and the ladies to a new silenced fan which has more power than the rvk and obviously is quite as hell. anyway did the set up on the fans and I though it was working perfectly, so here’s the problem it runs well on the min fan speed but when it changes to full power (80% in this case) and corrects the temps/humidity and switches back to min, the fan still runs at full power even tho it’s suppose to be on minimum. it’s driving me crazy as if I’m out one day and it does this and I’m not there to correct it, it could mess shit up. any help or insights are much appreciated. I also reset the controller back to default to see if this corrects but it hasn’t
  6. Kindly asking for your advice and critique, Planning my first build. I live in a house share, I have a small bedroom. For space reasons I sleep in one of those kinda bunk beds that only have the top bed so you get floor space underneath etc. My rough Dimensions for growbox under the bed are 70cm / 2.29 ft length 66cm / 2.16 ft width 80cm / 2.6 ft height I plan to make a frame with wooden battens, plasterboard outside then fill with celotex insulation then plasterboard on the inside and paint white or mylar. I did this with heat and noise isolation in mind. My light will probably be a DIY samsung strip light of 100-130 watt. I will obviously need a carbon filter but seeing some inline fan videos they're bloody jet engines. PC fans and the like are widely used I've seen on micro grows but looking on this forum are regarded as no good. I was thinking of getting an AC Cloudline Infinity 6" so I can run on a lower RPM. again I dont know how loud this will be. And I assume I need to be circulating a certain CFM for the carbon to be effective. My top concerns are Noise and smell, but mostly noise. I work and sleep in this room so If it turns out irritating then it'll be a no go. Before I go any deeper into the project I wanted to know whether I'm being realistic. The annoying this is I won't know until I actually buy all the kit as I have no experience. cheers
  7. Hi guys!running 3 autoflower lost track of flower!but one plants seems to be maturing good!!and the other two I think one is doing okay and the other I don’t seem to notice the maturing of the buds any guess??also attached some photos of all three flowering sites please let me know if may just be younger stages of flower compared to main one using GHE 3 parts also atami bloombastic statin is lemonberry haze
  8. I was wondering if somebody can tell me what's wrong with my plants, I am on week 10 super lemon haze auto GHS strain. Been feeding advanced nutrients under 2 x 600 watt, 8 x 12L fabric pots and one 15L autopot (just trying it out) Soil. Past few weeks they have been getting Bloom A and B 1.5ml per litre and last week switched from Big bud to Overdrive 1.5ml per litre aswell. So they're on: Cal-Mag 2.5ml per litre B-52 1.5ml per litre Bloom A n B 1.5ml per litre Overdrive 1.5ml per litre 3 fans plus extractor fan so plenty of airflow. 16/8 light cycle 55% humidity 30 degrees Celsius day temps The leaves at the top have turned yellow and crispy but the buds look and smell absolutely fine. I just want to know why leaves have turned yellow and crispy? Will the buds be fine after harvest? How do I avoid/fix this issue? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance.
  9. Not seen my plant for 3 days, just came to water and it looks horrible... Ive looked online it looks alot like a potassium deficiency or a nitrogen deficiency, i cant decide which one.. any advice would be greatly appreciated ill go to my local grow shop tomorrow It's an autoflower mystery seed 25 days old! thanks in advance for any help scratching my head at this one :/ growing in coco 70/30 perlite mix using standard bio series nutrients half dosage for the auto, watering not too heavy when there is roughly half inch - an inch of the top medium dried out. Struggled to edit the photos, im still learning haha.. Thanks for your time farmers sorry to summon you.
  10. Hi, I planted 3 autoflowers, specifically ‘Quick One’ by Royal Queen Seeds on the 8th September so 2 months ago. However they have not got any buds at all as of yet, is this normal? The plants are not in the perfect environment however they do seem to be growing fairly decently. I can’t see any pistils either maybe the odd few but I think there should be a lot more at this age, can anyone help please??? Please see pics below
  11. So im on day 71 and feeding this auto white widow 4L of nute water with 0.5ml of biobizz grow and 4ml of biobizz bloom per litre, theyre in soil and have a good wet dry cycle, i cant work out this problem! Tenps are between 18 and 28c and humidity is between 38 and 60 and its under a 250w hps 10inchs away from tips. I have no clue whats causing these leaf mark and cant find them on any charts Here is the whole plant Help is appreciated!

Water coco coir autoflower feminised full spectrum LED lights air circulation I'm not sure what else you need to know to help but please ask. Leaves are kinda crispy but it's being watered.

  13. So my gosh i went to check the girls this morning knowing its water day and my biggest girl has all dropped down all around the buds are laying out on the ground like someone sat on top of her! Ive made a support around them holding them all up now and attached these all to top of tent to keep them up, doesnt seem to be any snapped branchs but they did bend over looked like a supercrop bend! Today she went into week 10 ao only has a week or 2 left. Has anyone had thia happen? Will she die? Feel sick about it.
  14. Hi so its day 56 (start of week 9) on my auto amnesia and im worried about when to start flushing each water.. the website says 10weeks to harvest for them but obviously its plant dependant not website. She hasnt got any orange hairs but im not sure what the trichs are like as its my first grow.. Ive got some budshots and loupe shots to help.
  15. Hi all, I just popped 9 exodus cheese by GHS. just re-potted from 0.5 to 14L pots. currently my set up is just a floor fan & a 600w HPS bulb (running at the full 600). I have another 2 600's there if I need them, i also have an intake, out take & carbon filter etc. No tent; instead decided to black & white a full room to give them good space to grow stop any competing etc. however, i have a few questions & am looking for some help from someone with a bit more experience. Q1. After re-potting, do i feed them water or wait until they have taken all of the moisture from new surrounding soil? Q2. When is the ideal time to give my plants their first feed? (I'm using ionic grow & bloom) Q3. How do I know when is best to fim/top my plants? Q4. Any tips on smell reduction would also be majorly appreciated Thanks for reading, J
  16. Plants new growth has grown twisted thin and crinkled. Not sure whats going on happened last few grows and have started fresh got good cuttings from a friend for this run and looked fine till a few days back. need some help to upload pictures as i am stuck thanks
  17. Shit on it i was doing some LST and a brand clean snapped off... it was a side branch not main stem but quite high up as branchs go its day 16 for this poor auto amnesia Be honest, be harsh, i know this is bad bur how bad? At the very least its a massive lesson learnt.

  20. im trying to post pics but cant see the insert file option anywhere
  21. Hi guys so after much research I think the best way to get a non humming single speed fan controller would be to build on myself (Has nobody had the idea to build WAC1s with a plug and a trailing adaptor wired up safely, I'm sure people would pay £50+ ) Anyways... The list of things I will need to build this (Please add and correct me if I miss anything or there are better alternatives feel free to pm me) Xpelair WAC1 Single Fan Controller £27.55 1 Gang with 3 Metre Lead rated at 13A £5.95 So the plan would be to cut the 1 gang plug socket off with around 1m of spare cable, leaving the other end with the 3pin plug with around 2m (If my calculations are correct lol) The tools I have currently are : Stanley Aviation Snips : Some random assorted screwdrivers. A bunch of random stanley knifes stolen from the building site (Old bad habbit of keeping them in pocket ) (This is a diagram of how to wire it) Should I connect the wires on the single trailing adaptor should connect with the LF + NF + Earth? (The Fan will be plugged into this) Should I connect the wires on the 3pin plug that goes into the mains connect with N + L + Earth? (Do I put both Earths on top of each other in the Earth block?) As I will be using a 5" RVK fan with this controller in the future (I want to build this controller first) I have watched how you wire the fan and noticed there is no Earth in this fan ? Any photos of your WAC1s wired up with the case off would be a great help or full pictures of your WAC1s Any advice on items / tools I should buy for this too would be great. Would it be better to use lower amp fuses than 13A? The RVK would come with a 5amp stripped cable to wire to the fan can i plug this into the 13amp trailing adaptor? Thanks guys and thanks @Joint hogger Here is a picture of what I expect it to look like (Apart from both cables being on the same side and the plugs same colour )
  22. Greetings on a lovely evening! If only I knew what I was doing, but alas that is not the case. I have spent the last week or so reading various diaries and posts and the one thing it has confirmed is that I need some advice but in very simple terms as I am a little lost with all the various shorthand that is used. Well, I started off I think okay, with almost all the seeds germinating but then falling prey damping off ( again that was something new to me). I have transferred the plants that I think are viable into some 16oz cups with coco coir and some perlite and have some more seeds germinating due to my lack of patience. I also thought I could just get on with it without getting any pointers, to be honest, I have been rather intimidated but everyone knowledge, especially so-called novices. Here is a list of things I may or may not need but have purchased: Seeds BCN Critical XXL Auto Sweet Skunk Honey cream Straw Dawg Hurricane Equipment Soil meter Gloves Side cutter Copper tape Chicken Wire Canna Nitrogen Camo tape Miracle-Grow compost Seaweed Extract Worm Castings Perlite 10l Perlite 100l Camo netting Heat mat and thermostat Jiffy plug pellets 20 3 Gallon grow bags 20 5 Gallon grow bags 5 - 7 gallon grow bags 7-10 seed trays Plant capillary matting Cable ties Rabbit netting Galvanised netting st Staples 50 18oz party cups 200 20oz Vermiculite 10l Canna Pk13/14 Bloom Booster Canna Cannazym Liquid Canna Coco A&B Canna Rhizotonic 25l Outdoor water storage Pruning Saw Telescopic Ladder Foldable shovel 30+ Coco Coir x 650g 7 pocket wall mounted grow bag ( try and set up in the tree canopy or as high as I can get). I have found four to five different sites for my plants if they survive. I have taken some photos to show the initial success and then failure but I cannot work out how to upload photos which is not very helpful of me I thought it would be done at the 'insert other media' tab? Ah-ha, I can upload photos, just need to get them into some kind of order.
