  1. hi all, sorry if this is the wrong place for this. I've been lurking these boards for a few days religiously but just been approved. What I can't seem to find out is; I'm growing from seed in a propagator- Do I have the light on, or does that go on once they're seedlings? Do I keep it in a dark place or put it in the greenhouse while it's still seeds? Thanks so much
  2. Help Guys! Never had this prob before. Two weeks old bottom pair drooping, then top droops. had two others go like this then die. Rest seem ok wtf? Underwatering? In seedling compo, under a couple t5,s, no nutes, due to go out to a gg plot. Grew this last year (rgsc lem og) no probs just lost two fire 99 to the same

  4. casey jones

    Hi all, ive attached some photos of some yellow leaves I’m experiencing on some casey jones.. the photos aren’t great but hopefully you can see the issue. Hoping to fix the sick plant before she goes into flowering. All the other ladies are absolutely fine, under pretty much the exact same conditions. Any advice would be helpful.

  6. This weekend im buying my media for my autopots. What mix ratio do you use?
  7. Iv just bought a 47 liter reservoir that was supplied with a autopot system, 165mm (H) x 375mm (W) The question is can i just get a cheap pump for £9 will it do the job and how often should it run?
  8. Hi everyone, me again I have been given a choice of 2 strains from Dinafem lines to run outdoors this year, 51n is my climate band so anyone close to this who has had success with Dinafem either auto or not, please let me know I have searched the forum briefly but haven't found a great deal to be honest
  9. Hi guys I had 2 600w hps lights in my grow room and the temps were max 27 degrees. I have now added another 2 600w hps lights and temps are running 32.7. I have Dinafem xxl autos for this grow and was wanting to follow @blackpoolbouncerDiary quite a bit. The room is approximately 6-7 cubic metres or around 3.8m2 extraction I have 8” hyper phresh stealth fan and mountain air carbon filter. 1 14” circulating fan. 6” in-line fan (that is covered up and switched off for now so I can keep as much negative pressure as possible) There is is a lot of negative pressure in the room the door slams shut if you have it a few inches away so I thought this would keep the temps below 30 but it is a smallish room. Without changing the extraction system (which is brand new and not cheap) is there a way I can keep the temperatures down a few degrees? i was thinking of getting a portable air-con unit I heard you need to get 4 x the wattage for your lights power in btu so if I have 2400w I need 9600+btu. I have found a decent air con unit near me 10000 btu unit but want to know this will help before I spend even more money? Any other ways to bring the temps down?

  11. im growing 6x ww x bb from seed and 4x candy kush from cuttings/clones using dutch pro light mix 600w led for veg 1200w led for flower ph perfect nutrients 3 part by advanced nutrients seeds are 10 days old cuttings 1 week from rooting ive not started feeding the plants yet as when i bought the soil he said there would be enough in there to last a little while before starting to feed can some one please tell me why the leaves are going like the pictures ive added, i thought this was because ive no fed them nothing yet, but the cuttings are alot bigger than the seedlings, but then noticed the seedlings doing the exact same as the cuttings. bit wired i thought and i cant find nothing like these on any forum, i want to get them right before its to late if any one can help me that would be great ! hi, im a new grower, so helpful this site is !
  12. Hi guys sorry for the amount of posts at the minute. 2 out of the 5 plants I have in my rwdc set up have developed some yellowing of the leaves since my last drain and refill of the nutes (they were worse beforehand tbh very droopy due to overwatering/filling of the system and ec was 1.6) this time I only put about 1/2 of the recommended nutes amount in as they are only couple weeks since they’ve been in but ec still went from 0.5 from tap water to 1.2. I am using Buddhas tree coco a & b Buddhas tree meta boost buddhas tree green power regeneroot am I right in guessing it’s a magnesium deficiency? Can I add slightly more up with any of the above nutes for next drain and fill? thanks again.
  13. Hi there quick question hoping you can help, I recently harvested and during this time a few bits from the floor I have put onto the side in the grow room, we're back to them and they are nice and solid, but the rest of the harvest is drying at a different location it is drying lose and airy and not "pulling in" as such more just drying the shape as it is even the nugget kolas, and looks pretty bad tbh, obviously I am thinking the drying environment, can anyone give me and solutions to rectify for this problem or the causes for this the bud is not super super dence but it sure wasn't like this the drying tent temp is 17/18 and humidity is 60RH any replies is greatly appreciated
  14. Good Morning Guys, hope everyones well! I flipped my tent over to flower last week and checked last night and noticed some insect damage to a few of my plants. I have 9 in total of 3 strains and the insects have been on atleast 4 of the plants. I didnt actually get to see an insect in action even though I looked, but i did see a small orange larvae crawling around on one of the plants if this helps identification. Ill attach pictures below to show you the damage theyve caused but I want to nip the problem now early in flower before they start attacking the flowers!! The Temperature in the tent is around 80Farenheit with RH around 45%. There is good ventilation in the tent so I am not sure what could have caused this. As Always any and all help will be appreciated!
  15. 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.
  16. help

    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 ?
  17. 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

  20. 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

  23. 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.
  24. 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
  25. 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!!!!!
