  1. Alright there Uk420, How are you all doing? I have been enjoying the fruits of the kingdom a little too much,but now I am back, with a selection of strains from HSO that @HSO-Mark has kindly sent me Cheers buddy. I am starting this year off with a couple of the Ogzk fast versions with the hope of getting some cuts outside somewhere, also to mix it up a bit I have a pair of accompanying plants, one Green Crack and one The New. Both of the Ogkz have been growing well and are almost at the reppoting stage, from 3.5 to a 6. Both of them are very similar almost identical, the only real difference I have observed is that one is slightly taller than the other, nicely spaced nodes on both, big seven fingered leaves,here’s a Couple of pics. The Green Crack is easily the most vigorous out of the bunch of them, gobbling up the feed and sprouting out good new growth all the places where I want to see it, just the one picture I took, here it is, That brings me around to The New, well to be honest it is a bit of a gangler, really large internode gaps, probably from its Larry Og parentage? Kinda excites me that little bit more the difference in it. I tried a gentle bit of training but it laughed at me, so I assaulted the main branches into a better position to allow the lower shoots to do some shooting, mainly the plant looks a bit battered but I did go in heavy sure she’ll perk herself up in a few days, here’s a pic, As for the lights, I have been running two boards @ 100 watts each,18/6 won’t be long before the other two go on. Still using my Mountain Air filter attached to a four inch rvk fan controlled with a sms thingy bob probe jobby. Couple of heat mats for under pot heating, controlled with another one of them plug in watchca me call it’s, and a couple of tube heaters, and it’s still freezing. Feed this year is going to be bio bizz, probably next year too. Next up, who knows maybe some Chemdawg regs, or some Three blue kings, or perhaps I’ll finally get around to growing out some bubba kush, the possibilities seam endless. Take it easy. Jj
  2. 2x Mango sapphire 1x Fast green crack going here.
  3. Hi guys, i'm in veg on day 12 now on a hso gorilla breath in a 10l soil pot (might start a diary soon to help others as well as myself) and its growing pretty fast under my hlg quantum board and i'm already on 3 nodes with the 4th just starting. I'm looking to yield the most bang for my buck as i use weed in either my vaporizer or also in edibles for my pain management and have found it to be the only actual effective natural medicine that i've tried, meaning that i only need around 2-3 ounces a month and i know that this small tent won't exactly cut it but at least it saves me money long term. Is the best way to go about filling the tent up for yield to top now and then begin low stress training the main branches? also do i have to wait a week for it to heal before doing this? I have looked around and have come across many different answers on the topic and thought that it would just be better to ask on here for a better opinion in my situation with such a small tent as this forum has been extremely useful in gaining knowledge Cheers you guys
  4. Good Afternoon fellow tokers, First and foremost, I hope your family and friends are all safe and well during this time. Safe to say @HSO-Mark has brought seeds of joy to UK420 Thank you again! I am excited to meet other growers and chat away as we grow the new Humboldt strains, I will be growing Lemon Citron and Passionfruit Punch. We began growing with the objective of never having to call again, it’s crap, expensive and NO MORE. I will offer as much information as possible, a guide as such, feel free to drop a message or a question or even a bloody hello, I’m happy to speak to everyone. Let’s get to it....
  5. Hi All, I popped a few seeds on Jan 28th 2020. Chemdawg (Femmed) was one she broke surface on Feb 1st 2020. Here she is at 24 days. I waited until I'd seen all my seeds germinate before I planted 2 x 'The New' on Feb 2nd 2020. The first appeared on Feb 5th. The second gave me a scare and waited until the Feb 7th. She appeared with only one cotelydon leaf. Over the next three weeks TN#1 was slowly outgrown by her slow starting sister. Both looked similar until the 5 fingered leaf appeared. After that TN#2 grew taller. She looks more relaxed with leaves flattened. TN#1 looks more indica and has raised leaves with serrated edges and ridged surface. The New #1 The New #2 Both had a strange kink in an early leaf and they seemed weaker than the other plants I had. They soon picked up and from week 2 onwards looking stronger and have caught up with the Chemdawg. I'm growing in a mix of last seasons rootball, a little new Canna Pro and worm poo + bat shit. I feed with compost teas mainly Borage in early Spring. Later I have some PK13/14 although I'm not sure when to give it as online advice is mixed. Last grow I gave it 3 weeks before harvesting. Then just plain water. I'm not sure it does much but I already have it ... the tomatoes will love it. At the moment I'm growing in my homemade winter tent. Two picnic tables and four zip ties. Plus a roll of mylar. It works ... bottom table upside down ... The other plants in there are a Blue Fire (separate report) a White Widow (Dinafem) and 2 x ((Satori x Krystalica) x Marley's Collie) a weird personal breeding line. (Mandala & Sensi). All are growing under a 220w Scope. Dimmed right down and at least 12 inches from the tops. Strange Calcium deficiency signs under LED's seem to be light burn minus the heat. So pure light burn. Raising high enough cures this. After years of trying to get the HPS bulbs as close to the tops as possible, it seems easy with less heat from the LED's. Big mistake. I'm going to need a light meter of some description to nail the correct distance.

  7. Good day all. I have been growing the Fast Flowering Green Crack for a couple weeks. Here she is in all her glory. This grow is for @HSO-Mark Strain: This is a new fast strain form Humboldt Seed Organization. The plan is to vegetate the Green Crack until the OGKZ is ready to harvest. This will give her about 6 weeks of veg. before the switch. Setup: I now have a 24" x 24" x 40" DIY veg tent with a LEG grow light that emits light between 449nm blue and 630nm red. This light is only for veg. Flowering tent is 1.2 x 1.2 x 2m and my intention are to try and fill her completely with 1 plant in that space. Method: DWC 5 gal bucket with hydroton and two air stones; light in the flower tent is a Mars-Hydro 2000. 6 inch extractor with speed control and carbon filter. Exhaust outside, with passive air intake. Just trying to keep it simple. Nutrients will be HP Flora series, Cal-mag, Silica, Hydro-Guard, unless something unexpected shows up. Let the show begin.
  8. Also any information on how stable these genetics are thanks
  9. So i can only do one plant and i'm really stuck between options, i have a single 40x40x120cm tent with a hlg quantum board led, which i can run really cool with the driver mounted outside, which i would like to take advantage of with a vibrant strain and want a single photo strain to do that must grow like an indica for the whole height issue i personally think (Please correct me if i'm wrong) and must be high yielding (i know people throw this around too much but what i mean is a very high bud to leaf ratio, as it is the only plant i'm growing now and therefore i'm looking to yield the most from it.) I'm a heavy daily smoker and i know that i'm still gonna need to buy bud inbetween harvests, so i'm looking for a very heavy yielder aswell as a great tasting strain. I was looking at Barney's farm glookies which they boast offers 800m² yields (must be exaggerated) but after looking into it, it seems to be a pretty unstable plant as well as from my understanding, Barneys are more of a overhyped brand. I have however had good results with their lsd autos in little pc grows. I have since started looking into Humboldt also known as Hso, Dna genetics and Dinafem after seeing them on other forums being recommended. I'm just overwhelmed by all the choices and always end up finding a strain that i like which ends up not being a good yielder when looking at grow diaries for it. Please could somebody recommend a strain that will fit the bill nicely. I'm really into the usa connoisseur strain's and was considering hso's sugar breath at one point as well, but haven't been able to find much about it's yield online from diaries. I also should mention that i'm looking to spend no more than around £10 maximum per seed so in house genetics isn't really my go to right now as you have to spend a good 100 quid buying 10 seeds, and that i'm using attitude seedbank (https://www.cannabis-seeds-bank.co.uk/). The seeds also must of course be feminized as well. What would you guy's personally grow? Note: also must be stable genetics as i'm growing from seed everytime, and i will be lsting and topping
  10. Hello 420 Start off with a massive thanks to @HSO-Mark for sending me a 5 pack of THE NEW by sherbinski much appreciated Iv also got .. Choc mint og Sapphire og Black d.o.g Bubbas gift Sugar breath Ogkz Soil:plant magic Ferts:biobizz Veg/clones :5-45w led/100w cfl/ 200w cfl Flower:400-600w hps This will be a timeless grow journal will do bits on clones,veg ,flower & Harvest won't be any Schedule/Organization will try and do regularly updates through veg and flower from the seeds/1st clones then after that will just do updates of the clones in flower with the odd update of mothers/clones/bits&bobs when have the time also any new HSO seeds i start Still in the boring stage at the moment... few will be going into flower in the next couple weeks .. don't want them going in very big until i see how they express themselves in my flower room ...
  11. "The New" beginnings and CMOG. Hello dudes and welcome to my HSO diary. This will be the first indoor diary I've done with HSO strains. It's going to be a 9 plant grow consisting of Sherbinski's "The New" and "Chocolate Mint OG", with 3 plants from another breeder in there for company. You will see these plants in the diary as they are germinating alongside these and also there'll be canopy shots throughout the diary but they won't be getting a mention in here. There's another diary for that A massive thankyou to @HSO-Mark and HSO for giving me the opportunity to grow these expensive "New" seeds and also to @Smokebelch for suggesting me I was meant to be starting them at the End of July but the heat in my attic was still far too hot to risk messing these seeds up and it was still 28C ambient temps up there in mid Aug. While I was waiting for things to cool down I asked Mark if it would be possible to grow CMOG alongside them and he agreed, being the true gent he is The CMOG arrived a few days ago and the temps have dropped so now's the time to start. I was surprised to find Mark had sent me a 10 pack of CMOG so I feel a bit bad now for taking on seeds from another breeder before these arrived. The bonus is though, that if any of "The New" or CMOGs fail in germination I've got plenty of CMOG to replace them and still have a full house. If not needed they'll be in deep freeze for another time This might be another bumpy ride as I've been having problems with my water for quite some time. I checked my local water report and it said I had a Ca/Mg ratio of 4:1 so that's what I was going on to try and sort my problems and things were getting worse! Had my water checked at Growers Ark and the outcome was totally different. Ca is moderate and Mg is high so my ratio is only 1.54:1, lower than the 2:1 to 4:1 that is generally considered to be good for Cannabis and certainly much lower than the 4:1 I thought it was. No wonder I've been messing things up. So I'm back to the starting block for this grow and that's why I'm calling it "The New" beginnings let's hope it runs smoothly The strains. The New. Feminized Genotype 80% Indica / 20% Sativa Cross Girl Scout Cookies x Larry OG Suitable for Indoors and outdoors Indoor flowering 65-70 days Indoor yield 400-600 g/m2 Outdoor harvest time Mid-October Outdoor yield 2500-3500 g/plant Outdoor height 3-4 m THC 28% CBD 0.1% THC/CBD ratio 280:1 Our Debut Collaboration with Sherbinski Gassy, intensely fragrant buds The New, descended from the famous Girl Scout Cookies (Sherbs cut) and a selected Larry OG, is our first of many collaborations with Mario Guzman, aka Sherbinski, known worldwide for his passion for top-of-the-line marijuana. The resulting hybrid is a stunning quality-oozing plant with above-average resin count that boasts buds wrapped in a delicious subtle gassy cinnamon aroma. A medium growth is recommended indoors, while outdoors the greenhouse and dry, warm, temperate, and Mediterranean climates are preferred. Strong earthy flavor A full-bodied, soothing effect, perfect for chilling The New was first in Sherbinski's stabilization process. Her flavor is sweet and gassy with hints of cinnamon and petrol, and her crushing THC levels (28%) endow her with a sense-awakening hard-hitting buzz. In a nutshell, a top-of-the-line cannabis strain. Perfect for chilling out and experiencing that nostalgic Cookies effect and taste. A cannabis jewel that is now available to everyone! Chocolate Mint OG Feminized Genotype 80% Indica / 20% Sativa Cross Emerald OG x Grandaddy Purple Suitable for Indoors and outdoors Indoor flowering 55-65 days Indoor yield 400-600 g/m2 Outdoor harvest time Early October Outdoor yield 1000-2000 g/plant Outdoor height 3 m THC 22-26% Top-quality genetics A well-conceived body Deriving from the cross of Emerald OG and Grandaddy Purple, the origins of Chocolate Mint OG are pure and of great quality. It is an exceptional fast-flowering marijuana plant constantly radiating quality which is especially beautiful to observe during the flowering phase due to the purplish hues it takes on. Not particularly resistant to moisture, it is advisable to control its growth when growing indoors. Sybarites will fall for this Californian wonder from the very beginning. The icing on the cake is its incredible yield, allowing for the production of generous crops of dense big buds with an intense scent. Richness and diversity Intriguing and substantial properties This cannabis hybrid has a very deep flavor and aroma, with hints of chocolate, mint, pine and spices, with an acid aftertaste. The effect, providing both physical and cerebral long-lasting sensations, is so potent that only the most experienced users ought to make use of it. This marijuana seed should be present in the collections of those in love with high-potency strains. Equipment, medium and nutrients. Root riot cubes. 1L square plastic pots (I've just ordered these but if they don't arrive in time I'll use the little white nursery bags I use for autos as an intermediate until they arrive). 7.5L round fabric final pots. Clover MP compost with 10% Canna coco pro added for extra aeration in first pots. I'm thinking of House and garden bat special for finals and flowering. TNC MycorrMax. Shropshire liquid seaweed. PM rootstim. BioBizz Fish mix. Bio silicon (maybe). PM Oltimer Grow. PM Oldtimer Bloom. PM Oldtimer Organic PK4-8 (maybe). Propagation and early veg. DIY veg cab 60 x 55 x 115cm. The cab has been upgraded since I built it with thick aluminium sticky back foil, white sided for reflection. 4" RVK extractor with a passive intake from a rad box housing a 1200w oil rad with 3 settings and thermostatic control. 50cm heated prop base with no lid. Gravel tray with prop lid. 6" desc fan for circulation. Dimmable 135w HLG Quantum board V2. Late veg and flower. 120 x 120 x 180 tent in an uninsulated attic room. I've insulated one side in the eaves but the roof and other side are just plaster so I have a duvet and some large bubble bubble wrap draped over the tent roof to keep heat in. TD Silent 6" 2 speed extraction with 6" Rhino pro filter. The filter will be renewed during this grow. Intake from 2 x 4" RVKs into 6" ducting through a y piece and reducers. One from the rad box and one from the veg cab. Both can be adjusted independantly to balance the veg cab environment and flower tent environment. Electric blanket for keeping the roots warm, plugged into an Inkbird thermostat with probe. Circulating fan is a 3 speed air purifying fan with carbon filter removed and negative ion generator switched off, so basically a 3 speed fan. The neg ion switch can be switched on if there's a chance of mold. Both 4" fans have speed control since this diagram. The leccy blanket covers the whole floor with some up the back side giving extra heat from the side. Ignore the saucers, there'll be 9 in there hopefully when the time comes. I was thinking of cutting the intake ducting so it only just comes through the tent sock, and making a diffuser for the end of it so the air is blown out to the sides as soon as it comes in, thus making more room for the plants to be equally spaced by allowing me to have the front left plant closer to the wall. I might get away with it as it is though with using smaller pots than usual. We'll see how it grows. The lamps. 2 x Maxibright 315w CMH in daylight reflectors. I have one 942 daylight bulb and two 930 agro bulbs. Late veg will be under the 942 and flowering will be under that and a 930 or two 930s. One lamp hooked to side out of the way for late vegging, so I can slide one lamp to the middle of the tent. Easily put back in place when I fire up both lamps for flowering. Access door in rad box for rad controls. Circulation fan. It's a cylindrical type fan so puts out a broad airflow across the top of the canopy. I was thinking of using a tower fan hanging on it's side to make the airflow even broader but I like the idea of having the neg ion switch in case of mold so this will stay in until it packs up and the other will save. Training method. Being a multi strain grow I'll decide on this as I go along, depending on vigor and stretch. If you've managed to read this far into this long intro thanks for the interest. Long winded I know and I'm sure many of you know plenty about the CMOG and also the New from the few diaries that have been done. Both new to me though so I've included the strain info in my diary to keep it in one place for reference. Onto the grow then which starts from the early hours of the 6th when I got them in for germination with the prop lid on 6th Sept 01:00am. As mentioned earlier I've not been growing indoors over the summer and don't have any mother plants so I fired the veg cab up late on the 5th to dial it in for a few hours before putting the seeds in to germinate, everything apart from the 6" circ fan was switched on. The LED was dimmed to the lowest which is 60w I believe and hung 21" above the riot cubes for warmth. I took some already wet from the bag cubes and put them in the tray with prop lid on and vent closed, to warm up while I was dialling in. I also put a container of water in the cab to warm up for mixing a liquid seaweed solution. The tray was put in the heated prop base that was set to 8 of 10 on the dial. The extractor fan was set to half speed. The temp had settled at 24C and humidity at 71% so I got on with preparing the seeds. Seeds. All 3 New and the 3 best looking of the CMOG seeds were chosen and inspected for cracks or damage, giving them a gentle pinch to check their firmness. All good and a nice colour to them. The CMOGs are a bit lighter than the New. The New. CMOG. The seeds were placed point down in the holes. I got a wooden BBQ skewer and marked it 10mm and 7mm from the blunt end. I used the blunt end to push the seeds down until the 10mm mark was level with the cube tops. Corners were ripped from the cubes and placed in the holes. Then I used the skewer to push the corner pieces down to the 7mm mark, thus ensuring there was damp sponge in all round contact with the seeds, and all seeds were at the same depth giving them all the exact same conditions for germinating. I did all this while the tray was still in the prop base, hoping not to lose to much warmth in the cubes. I then gave them 2ml each of seaweed solution at 2ml/L to aid germination but not soak the cubes too much as they're already wet from the bag. 01:00 The prop lid was put back on, sellotaped to the tray around the join and the top vent covered in duct tape to keep it sealed and keep the humidity up so the cubes don't dry out. If any change colour over the next few days and look like they're drying I'll add some more water but hopefully this should see them right without adding more water. I checked yesterday morning and temps were 24C, humidity 90%. Then again in the afternoon and they were 25/91. Checked again this afternoon and they were 23/93. Nice steady temps and high humidity to stop the cubes drying out so I'm happy with that. Outside temps are gonna drop to 7C tonight/early hours so I'll be up late checking and dialling if needed. Steady temps are key to a good germination IMO. Well that's the best I can do for them, hopefully we'll see a 100% germ rate in a few days. I'll update when I see some life. Thanks for looking, happy gardening and be lucky
  12. Chocolate Mint OG

    From the album Misc.

  13. Im back...... The water garden has had a facelift and is now ready welcome some new girls. I will popping using the traditional method of paper towels. I am using a RUSH system this time......I have upgraded it a little with better returns (ice line), I have two air pumps running 13 coke can air stones. (75l/m) I will have to use up the rest of my Plant Magic on this grow.....but it will be the last.....its f@ckin shite IMO So I will be only using the DWC A+B this time hydro silicon (a must) Canna PK13/14 (it seemed to be the 'cleanest' pk i could find) 1 packet of House and Garden shooting powder for the last week. I will use the root stimulations in veg in the x stream but that shite is going no where near the system as it 'furs' up my chiller. Just waiting for postman and games can begin
  14. Hey all you nice friendly crazy mad PnC’r ppl, I’m starting this diary now as my OGKZ popped it’s head above ground yesterday, (like other’s have been saying it need’d a lil help off with it’s shell) so we are at seedling day 2 today, in lil starter pot at min... I have to start this diary off picture-less as I only got a camera order’d yesterday, but want’d to start this off same time as my seedling has started, pic’s an plenty off them to follow soon as possible... So I guess I can start off by giving a lil grow set-up info for my lil girl... Will be grown under @diyleduk quantum board’s start to finish, veg’d under a 65w 3k starter qb, an flower’d under 360w qb running at abt 300w + 50w off deep red strip... Medium will be H&G light mix with add’d worm humus an fish blood an bone, an later on top dress’d with bat guano, nute’s will be the H&G soil range run at 50% strength, but will be supplementing this with eco-thrive microbe tea, an my secret weapon kindly sponsor’d by @diyleduk Tribus... Planning on topping at 5th node an removing the bottom 2 node’s an trying to bring up 4 small main’s, that’s the plan but we will see how it play’s out Not much more to say for now really, other than seedling day one was the 9th, so it’s started now, here come’s the madness Will be up an running pic’s soon as... Good PnC luck to all...
  15. Welcome everyone! Thanks to @HSO-Mark & the gang for the seeds& comp ..good luck to all taken part Started off by rolling out the red carpet .... INGREDIENTS... And then this happened!!... Decanting sesh over I poped all 3 in some water to have a wash & cool down.....
  16. Hi, I have a perpetual grow all HSO bar a couple of new seedlings. I grow in reused Canna Pro Plus making organic teas from Borage, fish emulsion, worm castings and bat shit. Currently flowering:- 73 days Amherst SD clone * partially harvested 66 days Blue Dream clone 66 days Choc Mint OG clone * partially harvested 40 days Blue Dream clone 28 days Chemdawg #1 & #2 seed 13 days Chemdawg #3 seed 2 days Blue Dream clone Ready to flip 2 x Blue Dream clone Seedlings 1 x Black D.O.G. 1 x Choc Mint OG
  17. Hi all. Seeds arrived today so its finally time to get the new environment up and running. First strains in the new grow environment are Sherbinski & HSO "The New" and HSO OGKZ. The New: And the OGKZ. Will be growing these in the Alien Hydroponics RDWC Pro system. The seeds are in a Seaweed soak for the next 8 hours and then I'll put them into kitchen roll until I see a tap root and then into the cubes. I'll be using the new Quantum Boards I got from DIYLEDUK for the first time with this grow well as using full on RO water for the first time, so if anyone sees me doing something I shouldn't don't hang about and shout very loud. 1500w of Quantum Boards over 350 litres of RDWC... I'm trying some Shogun Hydro Nutrients on this grow and I'll keep the diary well updated with what I'm doing along the way in the hopes anyone with DWC / RDWC experience will share some wisdom. This is my 5th grow with this system now, I'm just about getting the hang of it but with the addition of the RO water I'm in uncharted territories tbh. New lights, new strain, new water, new nutrients, I'm a born again nooob! To hand I have the grow and bloom, PK and Cal/Mag. Again if anyone with full RO water in hydroponics experience drops by please do follow and lend advice along the way. Possibly the most interesting diary I've done to date for me this one, lots of new stuff, so I'll be updating regular with what I'm doing, or trying to do... The net will be going down at some point too so this one should keep me well on my toes. Just to add, I know there's been a fair bit of flare up about these seeds and the price etc, really would appreciate it if we could stick to the grow rather than have posts about all that Got to say thank you to @HSO-Mark for the info etc on these strains as well, cheers matey. Thanks for reading. Hope everyone's well and toking something frosty. GV.
  18. I just saw an email from HSO and i was in for a surprise i won with my review on Amherst Sour Diesel on their website.i was just browsing their blog(as always)and i just checked who won.luckily because the mail they sent went straight to my junk and was sitting there for more than 3 weeks:) what a nice pack! obviously we don't need to worry about seeds with a man like @HSO-Mark but it was still a nice surprise. so i can say the Amhersts are a winner in my book in every possible way! https://www.humboldtseeds.net/en/blog/october-november--2019-gift-pack-winner/ so don't be shy and leave a review guys. Again...Thanks to Hso
  19. Today I am stoked to be starting a new diary with HSO’s Chocolate Mint OG aka ‘CMOG’. I always lean towards the indica dominant genetics - so this strain is right up my street! I would like to thank @HSO-Mark for getting the seeds shipped around Europe for me basically. I have had a blast doing the Gorrilla Breath and Lemon Garlic OG diary on this forum which is on the final couple of weeks, so I am really looking forward to doing this diary now with a bit more confidence and having read other members diaries which have been excellent. I will go into a bit more details on this diary compared to my first one - so it as complete as can be... If it is light or heavy on info, let me know and I will try to sort it out Strain Info - 80% Indica / 20% Sativa - Emerald OG x Grandaddy Purple - 55-65 days - 22-26% THC Setup & Environment I run 2 tents for veg and flower, they are as follows: 0.8m x 0.8m x 1.8m Secret Jardin Veg Tent with Scope 150 LED light (DiyLedUK). 2.4m x 1.2m x 2.3m Hydrolab Tent running Atreum LED's (DiyLedUK). Now I am based 38 LAT - so my environment is not the most ideal during July til mid September.. The LED's are going to help me out here with the ability to dim them along with having cool air being drawn from a room in the house that stays around 25-27c even during the peak of summer. I also have an 8000 BTU portable air conditioning unit if things start to heat up too much and can get some boost bucket reloads for some Co2 which will also raise heat tolerance... I do want to try and use the AC as little as possible to be honest though, so may get more creative once it is end of July time. Fortunately during veg mist coolers can be used as humidity is not an isse - they are quite effective and 1/4 of watts than the AC unit. Medium & Nutes I generally use General Hydroponics nutrients on Spurr's profile for anyone following my Gorilla Breath and Lemon Garlic OG diary, however this was because that diary was DWC. I have a real love hate relationship with DWC/true hydro and during summer months it is a complete write off as I do not like running chillers etc. My aim is to reduce watts, not add it... So I am going back to my favorite growing medium - COIR! With coir I like to run Cyco base nutes, cal-mag, silicon and Mammoth P with Bluelab PH/EC meters for reading levels: The coir mix will be 90/10 - coir/perlite and I am using 'UGRO' coir blocks which I have then prepared with a sieve and water to get all the crappy fibers out. I have not used this coir before but it was actually recommended to me on a topic I created in the coir forum on here, so I am sure it will rock! I think that’s all I can about everything.. SO, Let’s get this show on the road with germination! Seeds placed in cups with unbalanced RO water to start with for around 18 hours or so: I will check on them later to make sure they have all sunk or give them a little poke down. Tomorrow I will move them to paper towels or straight into coir and into an incubator kept at 25c and high humidity. So I will update again when we have some life forming All comments, feedback, advice welcomed - particularly around the LED’s as this is my first run with them, so I am a complete rookie... I have learned a few things using the Scope on a mother plant a couple of weeks, so not going in completely blind. Cheers
  20. I ended up ordering a seed for this so I could participate. I'm not expecting great results as I havent even completed my first grow yet! This is going to be quite a challenge and hopefully a great learning opportunity. I decided on the King size so I could have a little extra medium. I am going to try a similar method to my first grow using coco coir and canna coco a + b nutrients as it's been going well for me so far. I cut some drainage holes in the bottom of the pot and filled it with coco coir. I then fully saturated the coir, made a small hole and popped the seed in. I then covered it with fresh coco coir and misted it in: I then just popped it into my tent with my 2 other plants
  21. Hi folks, I thought I would give a diary a try to hopefully get everything running smoothly. I'm so glad I found this place cos I was about ready to give up after a couple of disasters! Things are going better now but soooo much to learn. I am already a couple of weeks into it so don't have pics from the start but I'll try and keep it going from here. Im growing 2 X gorilla breath and 2 X Dr greenthumbs Em-dog (both HSO) Drobe is 900mm X 900mm X 2.1M 4 inch rvk with vortex carbon filter scope 375 by diyleduk for the light compost probably plant magic nutrients I'll try and let the photos do most of the talking from here. All advice welcome
  22. Well, after much nail biting my pot noodle seeds have arrived and I have managed to extricate the neatly sealed seed pod and wetted the compost and popped one in a small pot to start as I want to give the little lady as much chance as possible, so that's all there is to say atm. Not sure I could handle the contents of the pot, we will see As you can see, I have bucked the trend and gone for the OG curry flavour, I'm sure it says it's the best one for growing pot! laterz fellow noodlers, I will take this opportunity to wish all who enters the best of luck, but that's as far as it goes! e2a, let it be known this is my first go at the comp, and I crossed a road to get my pot noodle!
  23. The seeds arrived today in the post so thought I would get straight on it for this years fun.. I am based in rural Spain, so my first step of the challenge was actually locating a Pot Noodle! It is pretty funny asking for a Pot Noodle in supermarkets and the reactions you get... Anyway, after some laughs and failure locally, I ventured into society again where I found an Iceland store! Now after the initial shock/excitement of seeing things like Yorkshire Puddings, English cheeses, proper ciders and other items I have not seen in years - I located the Noodles! Unfortunately the store only had the regular size Pot Noodles, so I will be handicapped to a mere 90g container… I can’t say I have ever flowered in a container this small before, so it will be interesting... I went for the Sticky Rib, no idea why though because I opened the Pot Noodle and it smells fucking rank... Has anyone actually eaten one, and are you OK??? I will be rinsing that out with H2O2 diluted in water to kill anything living in that mess: Growing medium will be coco coir and Cyco nutrients. Lighting is a Scope LED for veg, Atreum strips for flower… Don’t really have a battle plan with this, winging it. Best of luck to everyone else
