  1. Hi guys hope you all are well. Newbie here in need of some help ASAP that will be greatly appreciated. Here is my life story don’t know how much info to give so I’m giving pretty much all. I have grew a couple of times in the past on very small budget this time around I have invested well over a grand and want to get a big a yield as possible. I have 4 recirculating dwc 33litre pots. I have had all cuttings in a week 3 bubba island Kush cuttings that we’re about 150mm high before moving into pots. 1 blueberry og cutting that was very small but rooted about 70mm before moving. 2 600w hps omega dual specdrum bulbs about 300mm above plants. 5m2 room with milar film all around. 8 inch phresh hyper silent fan and 8 inch mountain air filter (awesome bit of kit) water temp is around 20* ec is 1.5 (it was at 1.0 but was told to up it with leaves being light coloured) ph 6.3 First problem is leaves are drooping on all 4 plants, I was told by an expert to keep them above the pots they’re currently about 1inch above, will I drop them to 1 inch below? The roots are flurishing on all 4 and dropped well into water. the smaller blueberry og has barely grew at all and is very pale don’t know what to do with this? how often am I meant to drain the water and refill with nutes? Sorry I am struggling to put any pics to this site on a mobile is it possible on an iPhone XS Max? thanks in advance.

    hey guys im a week into veg and i open up my tent to see this today ,i normally water them every 2-3 days and put in about 3L to each plant depending on how light they feel i use room temp water thats kept in with the plants, the one plant is really bad everything drooped over on it, they've all pretty much drooped over tho , the temps of my room been fluctuating by about 10C the last few days as the weather changes could it be something to do with that ? there was no sign of this yesterday is there something that has happened over night or is this because ive over watered them ? and if so how do i get them back to their former glory ? i feel like crying lmao someone come to the rescue and tell me its all going to be okay ?
  3. hey guys seems the older bigger leafs on the bottom of my plants are turning yellow and dying ive worked out that its a nitrogen deficiency what would be the best thing to add nitrogen organically ? but also ive read that nitrogen isn't needed on flowing as much as veg so as im a week into flowering will it be okay or should i add some just encase
  4. PHOTO Hi all This is my first grow The next set of leaves above have three points and the ones below have one. Both leaves at the second node are the same odd shape. Any ideas about this? I have never read or seen anything like this, even when researching about leaf mutations... Thanks for your help
  5. Hi all new to forum , needing some help i am growing gsc autos and having issue i have successfully gemrinated my seeds but when i put them into the 10ltr pots most of them have struggled or died off. I have a 1800 w cob led from china and also a 600 w hps/mh lamp. I have tried using jiffy pellets but the seeds i tried just grew long and whispy and when potted up into the 10ltr and put under the led they died 2 have took. One seems to be starting to sprout its second set of leaves and the other has its first set but one leaf looks damaged. I am basically looking for a helping hand. Am i going under light to early i have my light quite high so to its not to intense for the seedlings. I am growing in all mix bio bizz soil and have purchased bio grow bloom and topmax thanks
  6. Hi Genius Growers! So first time growing and had one plant already get eaten alive after only 2 weeks of growing. Now it seems that my best plant is under attack. Germinated inside and as the plants grew to be around 6 cm I took them outside. Growing in my garden. I have my suspicions as to what this is after researching but I thought I'd reach out to you pros/experts. What do you think it is? Any good treatment ideas? Attached are the pics. Thank you very much for your help. All ideas are really appreciated. 2 x Mystery Insects Visible Back Of Plant 1 Back Of Plant 2 Front Of Plant

  9. Hi all, im new to the forum and excited to be here, a friend @maverick40band I are looking to start up a personal grow and are looking for some good advice/ information, we are fed up with unreliable, poor quality or overpriced products out there and would like to have a clean tasty reliable source of our own. At the moment we are completely undecided on the best way to set up our tent. Hydroponics or soil grow? Potsizes? Light types? Fan/ extractor sizes? Nutrients? We are looking at a 1.2 x 1.2 x 2.4 tent and would like to grow 8 plants, is this tent adequate for the quantity and if so what equipment is needed to setup the tent to achieve a perfect grow environment? We do have some ideas of our own but would like some fresh ideas from experienced growers to compare notes and to see if we are on the right lines. I won't tell you what we have in mind as i feel we will benefit more from the knowledge and experience of this forum. Any advice on the equipment you would recommend, what and where to buy from, things often not thought about when setting up, recommendations on soil or hydroponics (pros and cons), or just any information you would like to share would be greatly appreciated. We are fairly new to this, we have a couple of 1-2 plant grows under our belts, so we are looking for as much knowledge as possible. Thanks for taking the time to read my post and I look forward to hearing from you all.
  10. I'm currently growing in Coco and have a few dark leafs at the bottom of my plant with brown edges and dark veins but the top of the plants look fine any help would be great
  11. Hello everyone, i have two plants two weeks into flower... a gelato 33 which is doing just fine!!! and a green ninja which has started showing some signs of a problem that I need some advice on please. the ninja’s leaves started to curl down at the tips which I noticed this morning...upon checking them tonight the leaves are completely curling down...I thought it could be one of two things, and thought peeps on here might be able to help me pretty please... basically my ph pen died yesterday! It won’t calibrate anymore so I think the readings are completely off! (I’ve ordered a new one and will be here by Sunday). This morning I had to reluctantly guestimate my water ph as my ninja was in desperate need of water...so I’m thinking incorrect water ph may be causing leaves to curl down.... OR... the plants a bushy beast! In a 3 gallon pot and I can see fair amount of roots underneath via the drainage holes...so thought it might possibly be root bound?? Temps are constantly 26-27 degrees Celsius with lights on....21.5-23 degrees Celsius lights off...with a tower fan and clip on fan moving air around so I don’t think it’s heat stress.... Advice massively appreciated!!!!!

  13. Hey All, This is a first time grow. I have 3 plants in a 60cm x 60cm set up. They are Purple Bud from Sensi Seed. Size of strain is meant to be small (so suitable for the compact area). Since first germination to today it has been 43 Days. Grown in soil medium, approx 20 litres. LED 400W The plants are on a 18/ 8 light cycle. Temperature 20-25 celcius (25 day, 20 night); constant CF extraction and a small fan blowing indirectly at one of the sides of the grow tent. Relative Humidity is 55% They were given Nutirents for the first time 1 week ago (only for 3-4 days) PH has been constant at 6.2. I wasn't happy with the nutrients and became worried that they were getting nitrogen toxicity, there was also some tiny yellow/ brown dots appearing on a few leaves; so I dumped the resevoir and flushed them out with PH6.2. They started to go very yellow. The number of spots increased, and then the size of them grew. Since the flush, I have limited their watering, but given them a small amount with nutrients again (this has improved their colour). I have also pulled up the lights, although it was always 18 inches away. I removed a C02 bag that I put in there around the same time as the Nutes. I have also become worried that this could be a pest problem > I have been unable to find any pests (top and underneath of leaves). Attached are some photos of the plants, and close ups of one of the leaves. Any advice would be welcome. I have some mite spray on hand, should this been the diagnosis. Slysir.
  14. 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.
  15. hello this is my first ever grow I put to a alright set up together I got a 1.2x1.2 loft tent 600w light dripper system and a temp controller that is hooked up to the fans to keep it at a nice 25c but anyways my plants are in there 3ed week from seed and 1 of them just looks sad it doesn't look as healthy as the other 3 this is the one I think is ill ??? that's the other 3 that are looking nice I have started a bit of lst on them 3 but I really don't know what to do with the other one as I don't want to stress the plant if it is ill any help or suggestions would be a real help
  16. Hello UK 420, new to this forum. Interested in advice from other growers as this is all new to me and fed up of having to rely on the black market. Me and also a friend have decide to do a setup up each and grow our own strains. All very exciting but also very daunting. A friend that grows recommended a x2 4 pot 25L wilma pot system. With x6 600w omega sunblaster dual spectrum bulbs. with a 5" rhino incline fan and 10" rhino pro carbon filter. with various nutrients. Originally was going to convert a room, but have decide to go with a tent suits me better to keep it out the way of the family. After looking across the forum. Overwhelmed with various things to go for. The Green tube tent for instance looks great. Would really appreciate, If you could help me through the list of things i need to begin before i go purchase the stuff as I'm unsure of the list I've been giving and is a big investment for me. Heres what I've got down so far. Greenlab grow tent unsure of what size needed for 8 plants. x2 4 Pot 25L wilmasystem ( also seen auto pots they look good ) x6 Omega Digi-pro euro digital grow light kit is has ballet and euro reflector. ( this seems like a lot ) 5" twin speed Rhino incline fan 10" Rhino pro carbon filter with ducting and clips Plant magic bloom 5L Box of shooting powders 500g ton of bud Rhizotonic 5l PK/13/14 1L Canna coco A+B 5L ( any changes and advice will be really appreciated. what tent to go for, are the wilma system worth while or should i use another. x6 lights seems loads swell as the nutrients. I'm sure theres things i haven't got on the list i need aswell. look forward to the feedback can't wait to get the ball rolling a big 420 thank you
  17. okay so coming upon week 6 flower getting close now guys but ran into another problem. started getting red/orange blotches on the fan leaves and tips seems to be curling. in soil from seed, 4x4 space, intake, outtake, extra circulation and osilating fan. room temps have been quite cold again because winter doesnt seem to want to fuck off for good but it didnt seem to affect the girls too bad last time round. feeding with oldtimers bloom and been giving em hints of calmag. anyway as soon as iv noticed everythings been flushed well and there about to resume half strength feeding with pk boost. any help appreciated ?
  18. okay guys got some blue cheese plants around 4-5 weeks into flower, theyre real heavy feeders. but one plants going a bit weird. random fan leaves started blotching slightly, came back to the tent after a couple daysof my old man tending it and hadnt told me what happened. the ones that hat started blotching had curld up with big brown patches (doesnt smudge not mold). trimmed the dead fan leaves off flushed the plant and it seemed to slow down. buds and sugar leaves are fine just a few fans. been reading up and put it down to phosporus deficiency. no pics atm but its in soil from seeds and im using old timers bloom and a wee bit of calmag. anything with added phosphorus or something you guys could reccommend seen meal worm tea and stuf like that. im going to grab some pk boost this weekend anyway as im out, you think that'll help or something else i could do with ? any tips appreciated PF
  19. Hi all, so ive been stumbling my way through my first grow fairly well (or at least i thought i had!) reading massive amounts from this forum which has been invaluable so far but i seam to have hit a bit of a wall! All was going well until the last two weeks or so, after some bad advice on my lamp height/power and watering schedules aka i was advised that i could water them for 15mins every hr as i had switched from a 125w CFL to a 600w HPS! When i had only been watering them for 15mins 6 times a day before hand with the CFL. So as you may have guessed over watering ensued and by the time i cottoned onto it it was really prevalent with droopy leafs, stunted growth being the most obvious and then the onset of burnt tips and then the signs of Nitrogen deficiency with the bottom leaves turning yellow and dropping off followed by the next leaf ect ect. Suffice to say i've lowered the feeds back down to 6 per day and raised the lamp up so temps aren't so high, that was 4 days ago and things don't seem to be turning around too quick, still getting more yellow leafs,,, making me questions is my diagnosis correct!?! So i guess i have a few questions that i'm hoping you guys will be able to help me out with. 1, How long should it take for the N deficiency to clear up? 2, is there something else at play that i have over looked? 3, what else can i do to help them recover? 4, Any other Ferro use'ers out there have any tips on using the range? or have a diary i could read? 5, My fans seam to be running full chat most of the time and yet my temps are still a fair bit higher then what ive set on the controller? i.e my controller is set to 24 degrees and yet temps are topping out at 28! Im guessing the 2nd hand controller i got wasn't such a bargain eh! =( 6, Is 6 feeds a day still too much? Any wilma use'ers out there have timing advice in regards to feeds? My set up is as follows,,, Female Seeds Lemon Kush, planted from seed 7weeks ago, topped at the 4th node and attempting to scrog. Wilma 4 Pot with 5ltr pots & clay pebbles and x4 air stones. 1.2x1.2 tent with a 600w hps aprox 3 feet above canopy on a 18/6 cycle. Ventilation ect is controlled by SMS Com 2amp Hybrid controller With RVK 100e2 in take and RVK 150e2 out through a massive Rino filter, 700w Oil heater with circulation clip fan above. PH is a steady 5.8 and my EC is at 1.5 with a background of 0.2 Air Temps are between 28 and 20 at lights off, with humidity around 40%, Water temps are naturally between 23-25 Im using the West Sussex Ferro range of neuts, using the GROW at the mo along with the Enzyme +, Bio Crop & Bio Roots,,, all at the recommended amounts as per Ferro. Any help, advice, criticism is welcome and massively appreciated! Not sure how to post pics on here, could anyone share a how to link? Cheers...
  20. Hey new member here looking at what strain to do next and im set on a cookies strain but im having trouble finding the best ones ? i know barneys farm and royal queen has released cookie fem seeds, has anyone tried or in the process of these ? i know bsb has a cali cookies and im running their diesel now but im not sure. im set on humbolts lemn garlic og, a cookies strain and maybe something else to fill my tent out with.

  22. Hi there, im Bud. I have had a look at the Frenchy Cannoli method of hash making, however i do not have unlimited resources. I welcome any help as i am just here to learn & contribute where i can. Thanks Bud
  23. Hey guys lost my other account on here Ive always grown autos had some good success from them Wanna try photos now ! I currently have 11 autoflower in my grow room (have loads of space in there for more) I have 2 fem photo seeds here (tagarine kush and critical kush) I want to take cuttings/clones from. Could I start them now and put them in with autos on 18/6 till my autos have done (around 65-70 days left) So could I take clones from these in 65-70 days ? And will they be ok in the grow room with the autos?
  24. Hello all and thanks for to admin for approving me. Excited to join the community after spending many hours reading up on several topics. I'm looking to start my first (small and low budget) grow and although as stated I have done quite a bit of research I'm getting some mixed information so would appreciate if anybody could point me in the right direction on a few things. I intend to grow only two plants to begin with, most likely some autoflower NL or Jack Herrer as I've read that these are short, easy to grow and less difficult to keep on top of smell wise than say Blue Cheese or White Widow. TENT Firstly, I have a tent 80cm x 80cm x 160cm that cost me next to nothing from Amazon. It has a couple of pinhole (and I mean a hairs breadth) that are sometimes visible through the zip - will this have any negative effect? This may sound silly, but I've stood inside it zipped up and I can't see jack, so I'm guessing it's nothing to worry about? LIGHTING I impulsively bought 2 £30 no-brand "216w Dual Spectrum LED UFO Grow lights" to go with it. I saw on Youtube that the actual draw of these lights is 65w but they apparently emit the same amount of light as a 216w HPS. The description is as follows - LIGHT SOURCE: 72 pieces of 3W LEDs, high lumens of 21,600LM, high power Par Value ensured, it is environmentally friendly. BLUE LIGHT: contributing to plant photosynthesis, promoting growth, protein synthesis and fruit development. RED LIGHT: promoting rhizome growth, blossoming and bearing fruit, extending flowering phase and increasing output. FULL SPECTRUM: wavelength of 410nm-730nm, white and warm white, providing natural light for various plants in different growth period. GREAT HEAT DISSIPATION: built in a cooling fan ensures great heat dissipation and long lifespan of 50,000 hours. After further research on these cheap no name LEDs I have come to the conclusion that this description is most likely bullshit. I stuck a couple of Komodo Dragon chilli seedlings in the tent a fortnight ago, to give the lights a test run and also to see if I could control temperature and humidity with the basic equipment I have. The fan in one of them is already bust and I'm going to return it. I don't hold much faith for the lifespan of the other one either and still have 20 days to return them both for a refund or replacement. Would I be best to get a refund, steer clear of these shitters and go with a CFL, perhaps a 300w as this would give me approx 50w per square foot? VENTILATION This is what I'm really struggling with . The tent is in a bedroom, which I spend most of my time (I live alone in a large upstairs flat and its cheaper for me to heat one room in the winter) and from what I've read, for me to effectively run exhausts and intakes outside would mean I'd need ridiculous lengths of ducting and stupidly high powered fans all over my place or start knocking holes in ceilings (which is a no). Is it okay to run intake and exhaust into a small tent from within one room? My tent is 35 cubic feet. I have a small duct booster that I intended to use for intake that is rated at 103/cfm. It's nice and quiet, low powered and didn't cost much. I'm looking to purchase an extractor and have found this formula on google to work out my needs - "To calculate multiply length x width x height of growing area e.g. A room that is 8' x 8' x 8' will have a volume of 512 cubic feet. Your extraction fan should be able to adequately exchange the air in an indoor garden once every three minutes. Therefore, 512 cubic feet / 3 minutes = 171 CFM." By this theory I'd only need a fan with a rating of 11cfm which can't be right can it? After using another calculator on a Hydroponics store website they advised me that I would need a 200cfm fan with a 300mm carbon filter. Does this sound more realistic? Also I've read that the restrictive effect of the filter will deduct 20% from the CFM rating of the fan which would only give me 160cfm, which I'm guessing won't be enough with my 103cfm intake to maintain negative pressure. This shit is baffling me. Would I be better to buy a 200cfm extractor and filter, open up all the vents for a passive intake? Would that mean I'd have to run the extractor fan non stop night and day, or would I have to do that anyway? I'm guessing so if I need to maintain negative pressure. Carbon filters - After much reading I pretty much get the jist that Phresh, Can etc are the dogs bollocks and the cheap £20ers are not worth a wank, even that the Rhino Pro's arent 100% in odor control. I've learned from my experience with the lights that there is a lot of shit out there and skimping can be a false economy but my budget is seriously tight. Can anybody tell me from experience if some of the cheaper but branded filters like OX, RAM, Rhino hobby, Swiftair etc actually do the job (even for 6 months) of removing the odor. Like I've said I'm not talking about a warehouse full of prize winning Cheese here, just two plants. I also know there is the DIY option, I'm pretty handy but I would be pretty pissed off if I spent the time and effort making something that is no better than a £30 jobby I could have ordered from the bay. I've found a site selling Rhino Pro's starting at £35 so I'm edging towards this, but the skimper in me says to try a cheap nasty £45 full kit with a fan from ebay. After all they've sold over 1500 with mostly positive feedback. Thanks in advance to anybody that reads this and can give me any tips, hope I've not put you to sleep. BN

    Hello, I am about to start growing again in one week ( or whatever my tent and lights will take to deliver) I am about to explain what i want to do ,and i would really appreciate some pointers,or constructive criticism ,if i am about to make mistakes,please let me know. I chose to go with Northern Light Automatic from RoyalQueenSeeds, ( got 10 seeds,just in case something goes wrong) Planing to fit 5-6 in a 120x120x200 cm tent. I will let them germiante and grow a bit ,forl ike 10 days total,then move the girls to the final pots (11L airpods) i will be using 600w MH for vegetative stage 1 day after i move them to the final pots (is that too much from the start?should i start with maybe 250w MH,or a 125 CFL? WIll let them like that on 20/4 light schedule till they start flowering. When i see the flowering stage begins,i will use 600w HPS + 600w LED full spectrum lights same light schedule: 20/4 (is the combo ok?) I am planning to feed them only after they start flowering ( cana coco A + B) Will try to keep the temp at around 26 C ,and the PH at 6.5- 7 . Please let me know what you think about my " plan" and thanks in advance
