  2. I have 2 Auto White Widow plants that have been growing for around 11 weeks and some parts of the plants look about ready to me (the lower branches). Should I harvest just those parts and leave the main stems to keep going or will that hurt things? I dont have a magnifying glass so I can only go by the hairs - some of which have gone past orange and are now getting darker and shrinking. Grown in a greenhouse and Im a bit worried about condensation so would be good to bring things to an end sooner rather than later if possible... Any thoughts? I could just chop the lot?!
  3. Hi anyone have any input on this please? All plants have lightened up alot especially across the tops. Getting some sick looking leaves but not in 1 area some lower some at the tops.. All 8 are showing signs of this.. Auto pot system 20l fabric pots 24 hour light cycle week 6 starting 7 on Monday Soil Source nutrients Temps constant 24-28 RH 55-70% X2 720w lumii black LED running at 600w First timer here so go easy Picture shows 4 of the 8 plants
  4. Hey - this is my first post but none the less i'm on my fifth grow... My first grow & second grows we're seed runs 1st grow was 9 plants, 7 weeks veg, no LST or Training what so ever. Transplanted once from cups to final pot. I didn't understand the whole basics of clones & phenos at the time and was essentianlly diving in blind so ended up with it all completely different. I managed to pull 23 ounces in total dry from this grow - the quality was shit apart from 1-2 phenos which we're okay, but the yield motivated me to keep going with it. I did a fair bit of research - got in an humidifier, dials and controller for temps, humidity etc, started following the VPD chart and hit my next one with seeds again. I did more plants on my second run, maybe 16 of them? 3 weeks veg and 3 gal pots. Didn't have huge colas this run but I took it on the chin given I only did a 3 week veg and alot more plants This resulted in 16 oz dry, but once again, not understanding clones I did to put the shit in 16 different bags because it was 16 different buds. After this I learned about clones and how to get consistent genetics so I reached out to some people and managed to find a solid dude. I bought the cuts and wen't from there, first one I did 4 weeks veg 10 plants, pulled maybe 13-14z? I was happy none the less since this was the first time i'd grew a big bag of relative fire for UK standards, had really good terps and a proper flavour - BUT my yield we're none the less falling by each and each grow, my next run I had a friend source me genetics from a guy who sells his stuff as "Cali standard" I ran through with it, and it was fire - did a 7 week veg in hopes of getting a decent yield but all in all pulled 5 ounces 7 weeks veg, 8 weeks flowering.... I wen't full organic for this grow using SoHum super soil and assumed my bad yield was due to running out of nutrients. So I sourced out some of my old trusty sunset sherbert cuts from the first guy I got clones off --- 3 months 6 weeks later and here I am asking for y'all help Bought ten of them, ran them a 7 week veg from clone to final pot (5 gal breathable fabrics) Advanced nutrients PH perfect got about 2 weeks left on these plants and the yields looking dead poor, the growth is unbelievably slow - I'm plagued by bad yields even when running huge vegs Probably going to pull 5-6 ounces off these 10 all in all, when you take in account electric bill, water bill etc i'm pretty much paying 160s flat on shit i'm going at this rate, pretty much at my witts end with it all Anyone got any ideas what could be plagueing me for these bad yields? down to give it one last try but if I get shit yields again i'm going to have to close the curtain on it all. Here is my personal journal - wasn't expecting issues so didn't really add so much detail I do apoligize for that 30l barrel 14/04/2023 - Planted veg/1 - no nutrients 17/04/2023 feed 1 20/04/2023 Feed 2 21/04/2023 wk 2 start - 23/04/2023 2ml each with around 5 litres 25/04/2023 just water 28/04/2023 wk 3 start just water 30/04/2023 nutes, 8ml with around 10 litres Thirp infection/ treated with plant vitality + sucsessfully 05/05/2023 wk 4 start, 5ml cal mag, 8ml from last to around 5 litres 07 05/2023 nutes 10ml cal mag, 10ml normals, 8ml terpinator 10/05/2023 finished off bucket from previous, refilled 0ml 12/05/2023 wk 5 start 13/05/2023 20ML Terp, 20ml cal mag, 30ml main - 30l resovoir 16/05/2023 Finished off resovoir - changed both light to 600w 19/05/2023 wk 6 start - clean feed, no nutes 22/05/2023 big feeds 25/05/2023 bigger feeds 26/05/2023 wk 7 start - keep running big feeds 28/05/2023 finished off barrel 01/06/2023 feed 12pm-12am cycle to avoid heat 02/06/2023 WK 1 flower start/end of veg 08/06/2023 Fed 30ml each, started bud candy 09/06/2023 wk 2 start 13/06/2023 40ml of each nute 16/06/2023 wk 3 start - 40ml of each nute including calmag 18/06/2023 40ml each 21/06/2023 30ml each 23/06/2023 wk 4 start 30/06 = wk 4 end 07/07 wk 5 end 09/07 50ml each nute 13/07 straight water(to do) 14/07 wk 6 end 16/07 60ml each nute(to do) 20/07 straight water(to do) 21/07 wk 7 end 28/07 wk 8 end The equipment i'm using is 2x Euro reflectors & adjustable ballasts with 600W bulbs, bulbs are on their second run from replacing 8" RVK extractor 4" inline budget intake Water pump which aerates barrel 24/7 for a minimun of 48h prior to watering. 2 x 1.2m2 tent Scrog - added it in way to high on this run usually use two.

  5. Hi all. First time grower in need of help. Great site BTW! My blue dream auto is getting close I think but I'm getting nervous and hoping you're greater knowledge can steer me right. Is there any easy way to tell when to cut it and where does everyone stand on the whole 48hrs dark before chop? I read 50-60% of pistols should be orange/red, and I think they are but the trichomes colour is hard to make out. I really don't want it to go bottom up this far in. If it helps, seed sprouted 7/4/23, predicted flower at 11 weeks would be today. Really greatful for any advice.
  6. Hey all, Nice to meet you! I'm new to growing and have an indoor set up in my garden shed and would like some advice on my first grow. My set up is a 600w HPS light, using 12L fabric pots with a mix of BioBizz all mix (about 3/4) and then 1/4 biobizz light mix. I pre-germinated 4 seeds (Auto northern lights - Dr Ray) in water and then a wet paper towel and then 3 of them developed taproots and the 4th one cracked but didn't show any root. So after about 4/5 days of monitoring them and keeping them damp, I moved them to the soil (even the one that didn't show taproot). I have my light on about 250W for 18/6 cycle and the light is quite high up and no where near the pots. It's been 6 days and the seedlings haven't broken the surface yet...when should I start intervening or give up with the seeds? I've been careful with watering, I soaked the soil about 24 hours before I planted and since then, I've been spraying them 1/2 times a day to make the soil damp and to ensure the humidity stays above 50% RH. But not soaking them at all. Not sure whats going wrong here or if I'm overwatering or just have dud seeds. Temp in the room has been fine when the light is on but I have noticed it going down to about 15Cish when the light is off, but I heard this isn't too much of a problem? Any help/tips would be great for this noob! Thanks in advance
  7. Hi I thought I'd open this thread to get some question i have answered but also a place for others to get help with any questions they may have. So question 1: I wonder if any of the products in the picture below replace the use of a product like "VitaLink Silicon Max"?, just worried about over doing it as it didn't cross my mind until after feeding Question 2: Anyone have their own experience when using these with BioBizz lightMix/AllMix soils, as in feeding levels per litres, i have downloaded the feeding chart but not sure how adjusted they may need for BioBizz composts? Chart Thanks.

    Hello good folks, I've just trimmed up some amazing smelling Blueberry Cheese and popped it in a jar with a 62% humidy pack. Small twigs all snapping nicely, i'd say they were all dry. A day later, they're not smelling so amazing and sort of turning towards the hay secant. Why is this, even after a day? Don't want this amazing smelling flower to turn into a jar of hay, any help greatly appreciated!
  9. Hello UK420 Family, I've got a quick question, so I've just gone in the room and thought I'll do the 'Paper test' where you grab a piece of a4 paper, hold it under the plant and shake the plant to see if any pests or anything falls off the plants. This is a method I've used since I had mites few grows back and have been clear so far, up until today. I did the test and noticed small worm like creatures walking around on the paper, I grabbed one of the most unhealthiest leaves in the room and lo and behold, there was a small fucker walking around on the back of the leaf as well. Now I am almost at week 3 of flower and have budsites show up since week 2 of flower, I've read a lot on neem oil but everyone says not to use it when buds show as it will taint the taste of the final product, so I've decided that if I need to, I will go the predator route to tackle the problem. Shaking a plant in a 20l pot, only produced about 3/4 of these so it must be very early stage, and on the leaf I could only see a single one. Only issue I have, is that I do not know what the heck these are, and this is where I need you guys help. Anyone have any idea what this might be? I've took these pictures with a digital microscope and the ones with white background is on the a4 paper and the one with the green background is directly on the leaf. You can see them with naked eye and there's literally no damage across the plants in the tent except for one which was a very old mother and I decided to flower her this round as I won't be keeping her around. Any help is appreciated
  10. Hi all I was wondering if anyone could lend a hand to a beginner? I've got a setup going listed below and would appreciate it if someone could maybe point out any flaws in it before I commit? This would be only for my use and a small 2-3 autoflower setup Tent: 80 x 80 x 160cm Light: TS600 Full Spectrum LED 85w Mars Hydro 4 inch extraction kit with a filter Growing in something along the lines of Canna soil in 20L pots and other bits and bobs like a hydrometer etc Would you say its a good setup? I'm most worried about the light might look into a 150W version of the same brand but 85 is what an experienced buddy of mine recommended for that size of tent Any input would be much appreciated! Cheers
  11. To whoever is reading this I could do with a little advice! My leaves are clawing and it’s doing my nut in! I’m in the 3rd week in veg under 600W HPS using canna aqua vega in clay pebbles, running a recirculating system. 24° in the room 50-60% relative humidity 1.1 EC in the water i had an oscillating fan blowing on them I have now turned that away incase it was wind burn. I’m currently watering 15 minutes every 1.5hr (played around and settled at this), is it too little perhaps? I’m only running a single 600W HPS light for 6 plants which is roughly 80cm away from the tips so I wouldn’t think light damage so only other thing I can think is there is too little nitrogen in my nutrient solution however I’ve followed Canna’s feeding guide so surely it’s not that? any help if you’ve seen this before and what it could be would be much appreciated!
  12. Hi everyone, I've been trying to garner as much information as I can on this site but also feel like I'm confusing myself. Some background...a friend gave me some seeds for secret Santa this Xmas and I went and germinated all 3 of them. Hasty of me but here we are and I've got to live with it. Then via various bits of reading here and there have come to the conclusion there's a probably a lot more that needs to be done to ensure I get something out of these plants growing. I'm not looking to do this for anything more than curiosity/wanting to understand more about growing so don't really fancy spending a lot of £££ immediately - if that changes I'm more than happy to invest a lot more. I'm aware you get what you pay for but currently I've got 3 plants growing (and it's unlikely to ever be more than this in one go tbh). Would someone be able to recommend kit that at most would probably max out at £200. Honestly I've tried going through different threads here but I feel like every time I've come in with a clear question and looking for it to be answered I come away with with about 20 more. I live on my own (and a cat) so not too worried about having to hide it away or anything - are grow tents worth the hassle? Or is it okay to just fence off an area and use LEDs - fan to get rid of the smell when need be? Thank you in advance for your patience I'm just really struggling with information overload at the moment...
  13. Transplant this plant 2 days ago and it’s now looking like this! I’m growing organically in coco organically amended, ro water as water source, 600w led light set too 70cm away at 50% 18 hours 6 off, tent temp 25c, tent humid 50%, also have other girls with this one that are all showing signs of curving leafs and deformed growth, someone please help!
  14. Hi everyone sorry if this sounds a bit stupid have a problem I’ve never seen before or can’t seem to find anything on it ive about 3 successful grows under my belt, all went along with very few problems and produced good results,, this time round I’ve been growin sensi skunk feminised and veged them for around 3 weeks, have had them in flower 12/12 for around 3 weeks and they have growin around 4 pistils in that time, don’t seem to be growing much else,, the small suger leaf and stems are turning in and gripping to the main stem I’m growing in soil biobiz light mix in 12 litre grow bags and feeding them dutchpro bloom A & B any known deficiency’s anybody knows of, or is that normal with this strain any help at all would be appreciated
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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
  25. 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!
