  1. Hello and welcome to my competition diary.. I have decided to enter this competition as I have a few strains from sweet seeds that have been gnawing away at my sub conscious- go on Billy,..... try them …...it says, you know you want to.....and I do...….so I am...... strains in question are a few of Sweet seeds best performers. I have chosen Black jack, cream caramel and Sweet afghan delicious s1, all of which I have wanted to do for a good while, but never got round to. Heres the contenders, limbering up in the background Black Jack Crossbreed of our Black Domina with an exceptional Jack Herer that features a pleasant and intense bouquet similar to the Haze’s cathedral incense aromatic trait. The result is Black Jack® (SWS01), one of our most powerful and productive strains.This classic strain features great hybrid vigor and it is totally adapted to indoor grows. When planted outdoors, directly in the ground and with enough sunlight, it becomes a resinous hairy monster of about three meters of height.Indica/Sativa: 50%/50%THC: 16-21% · CBD: 1,0%Indoor Yield: 500-600 g/m2Indoor Blooming: 9 weeks Cream caramel This synthetic strain is the result of a three way cross between our best Indicas: Blue Black x Maple Leaf Indica x White Rhino.This classic strain features a sweet intense taste that is reminiscent of caramel, combined with a hint of earthy flavors inherited from the Blue genetic that intervenes in the cross. This strain is ideal for indoor growing.This strain is the favorite of medicinal cannabis users. Relaxing and antidepressant. Indica/ Sativa: 90%/10%THC: 15-20% · CBD: 1,6%Indoor Yield: 400-550 g/m2Indoor Blooming: 8-9 weeks Sweet Afghan Delicious s1 Self-pollination of one of our most powerful and aromatic mothers, a Black Domina selected in 1998.The self-pollination of this super mother produces dense buds covered by abundant resin. This strain features sweet intense aroma and a musky flavor inherited from its afghan ancestors.This S1 seed allows for a very homogeneous offspring regarding the described characteristics. Easy to grow and very resistant to pests and fungus. Indica/Sativa: 90%/10%THC: 15-20% · CBD: 1,8%Indoor Yield: 400-500 g/m2Indoor Blooming: 8-9 weeks And so to the plan . The plan is to wet 2 of each strain and hope hey all sprout nicely for me. I will play them music and sing sweet melodies to them to increase my chances. For those of you who have been fortunate enough to miss my previous ramblings, my system of growing is HYDRO, using a home made RDWC system with top fed spray bars and airstones. Its been developed by myself over the years and is working pretty well now, altho, as with most things, it could be improved. Here it is. I wont bore you to tears with the lowdown on it, but will condense it to say the totes are 60 litres, the net pots 250mm, the airpumps are 60litres, 2 golf ball airstones per pot, chiller is hc300 hailea, and the water pumps are 4000litre for the 4 pot side and 8000 litre for the 5 pot side. Nutrient line is Ionic, used for years and good enough for Heath Robinson (my hero...………...swoon....lol)…... im actually repairing a leak on it today, or at least that was the plan, but the section I cut out, I tested it and no leaks, so I just put it back, with new joint connectors. I will leave the glue to set and trial fill it tonight, with everything crossed. So once the system is cleaned and leak free, we will wet some beans . Can you feel the excitement? I can...…………. So take a seat, skin up a fat one, and hold on for the ride...….
  2. Week 6 of flower skywalk Og kush downward hard leaf clawing. Lower ( mid sec ) yellowing I don’t have air stone or pump in my res pump is running 15 on 30 off lights on 15 on 45 off lights off can’t fix the problem been 6 days now guys please help advanced nutes - bloom A/B, sensizym, b-52, bud candy, overdrive
  3. Hello all I’m after some help I transplanted my cuttings into new rdwc system on Saturday and they were looking very stressed out I did damage a few roots but they had plenty so hoping they would pull through. Anyway they have progressively started to look worse everyday this week extremely droopy curled down leaves the roots are still growing as they’ve found their way out of net pots and about to touch down into the nutrient solution. AIR TEMPS DAY 24/25.4 NIGHT 18/19 ROOT TEMPS 19/20 EC 0.6 Humidity is on the low side around 40 lights on 50/60 lights off I’ve got a little seedling that seems to be doing just fine in my environment. So do I wait and see if they pick up over the next week or pull them all and plug up another three beans to run. I’m short on time this run as my tenancy runs out may so they need to be finished and in jars by then. Please any help from experienced dwc growers would be highly appreciated. heres a few pictures of them beginning of the week And now they look like this
  4. Good day fellow growers, I have a question, I'm currently 3 weeks 3 days into flower on my first grow using coco and am considering going for the urban R-DWC 8 pot setup for the next grow. Currently in a 1.2x.1.2x2 with a single 600w hps and 4 plants but if moving to the dwc considering just using the room itself instead of a tent, is this viable and have others here had much experience/luck with that particular brand/setup? Cheers.
  5. fade

    Hi am fairly new to Organics and coco I have been watching how people achieve different colour fades in amended organic coco buy letting the plant starve of nutrients come end of harvest just wanted to know if this is possible in a full hydro system like Nft or in hydro clay has anyone ever achieved pinks reds and purple leaf fade in a Nft system I flushed mine for over 2 weeks and still plants healthy and bright green maybe I should flush for a month with plain none ph tap water and change the tank everyday? Or is it down to the strain genetics? I chose to grow organically in coco as I prefer the cleanliness to soil and less chance of pest but I prefer hydro to the eas of watering Thanks Any info appreciate
  6. I found this little matey in the roots of one of the girls which are in individual oxypot systems (its about 2cm long)- there is at least one more worm of that size in there and i can see multiple little tiny organism things that will probably develop into little worms. Looking online it seems like its a "western corn root worm" there isnt alot of information on these appearing in hydro systems, apparently its more common in soil. Some of the information i saw even suggested switching to hydro as a way of avoiding these worms. Has anyone had this before? What are the options? Im considering letting the roots dry a little bit before giving them a fresh bucket to see if that will do away with them. The worm i pulled out seems to be dead - it doesn't seem to have any movement.. Currently the bucket level is pretty low and the tiny little ones all seem to be pretty high up where the roots have dried a little - will they die off if i bring the level nice and high and drown them out? Any help or advice is very much appreciated
  7. hello dope fans, im back with another diary, this time its HSOs latest and greatest Sherbinskis "The new" As with a few other the new grows, heres the foreword - im not interested in your opinions on the strain, whatever they may be, and derogatory comments will be flamed, so shut up, sit down, and watch the magic unfold. If you like what gets produced at the end of this grow - buy some, if you don't - don't, simples eh? right off we go, these were cracked a week or so back and are now in the system. Its a DIY RDWC system of my own design which has proven to work quite well, if I say so myself. 60 litre totes, waterfalls and 2x 60l/hr air pumps see to the growing part. Ionic nutrients are used for grow and bloom, they are one part, none of the A and B bullshit. I use canna cal mag, because I preffer it to IOnics, and I wont be bothering with any PK this time, it doesn't make much difference in my opinion. Nutes are at 0.6, Ph is fluttering between 6 and 6.4, because I raised the water level a 1/3rd of the way up the pots, and the hydroton messes with the ph when I do this, despite soaking it in 5.6 for days. Its not a problem, and its only till the roots start to grow down thru the net pot into the bubbling cauldron of nutes. So here she is, the new, from HSO/ Sherbinskis. I might end up scrooging her, time will tell. its under a 400watt metal halide, and will stay under MH lams till a week of bloom has passed.i might crank it up to 600w in a week or two. depending on temps good times......
  8. Hi all, didn't really know which bit to post this is in as I'm having a few problems. I have posted before and @blackpoolbouncer gave me some great advice but I'm still having problems. The background: I grew successfully in coco coir, starting my seeds in rockwool, for about 2 years then I switched to hydro and the wilma system. I had one successful grow and then decided to switch from rockwool to root riots due to rockwool being bad for the environment. I grew 8 Barney's Farm Blue cheese from seed using root riots and there were no issues. Then the problems began,. I bought 8 Big Bomb seeds, started them in a prop, did exactly like before, put them in the root riot and none of them even germed. I posted here and got some great advice which I followed. This time one out of 8 popped up. The others didn't even germ. I decided to try different seeds so I bought some Super bud and this time decided to try the paper towel method. All of them germed just fine and I very carefully transferred them to the root riots, careful not to overwater as I suspected this was the issue last time. They all popped up just fine and began to look good. I gave them quarter strength nutes. Then 3 of them flopped over and died (I'm guessing dampening off) and the remaining 5 are still upright but have completely stopped growing. They are under an 85watt CFL. I'm tearing my hair out here. It's like I'm destined not to grow anymore and I've lost my confidence. I still have the first Big Bomb which is a seedling now but it doesn't look super healthy. I'll post a pic ina bit. it has healthy new growth but the old leaves are yellowing and the stem looks very thin. any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm going to go back to rockwool I think. I have 8 more Superbud seeds. Wtf am I doing wrong people?
  9. Hi all,,, please see pics below and a full description half way down!!! Thanks in advance for any advice. Hi all, So i'm having some issues with using the Advanced Nutrients Grow range, used them before with no problems but this time ive got leafs that aint lookin too good! Lemonade OG from @panik Week 5 (laggin a little behind schedule due to some school boy errors whilst seedlings) Topped 10 days ago. Res temp is 19-20 Air temps 21-26 Wilma 50ltr with circulation pump and Haliea Chiller, 11ltr pots with pebbles, internal small clip fan, intake and extraction RVK Vegging with 325w of CFL Advanced Neuts Sensi Grow A&B + Hydroguard EC 0.9 PH is 7,, but as im sure ya'all know its not meant to be a factor with AN neuts as they are have a much larger working range due to being chelated. Here are some pics,,, My suspicion is a Mag deficiency tho im really not sure! Any other AN users out there that have had the same problem??? @stu914 any ideas mate as i know your a AN grower!?! Have you experienced anything similar?? Mag deficiency mayb??? Mr Panik says it looks like a PH issue!
  10. Hey everyone! Just another general question wondering if any of the experienced guys can recommend what I should look into! I want to grow photos after my second auto grow but not sure the best way. I don't really want to veg for 2-3 months I know the yields are awesome but there must be good ways to grow quickly and get a good yield Long run I want to take a clone off one the photo plants and make a mother from it so future photo grows are quick as possible. Would it be quicker to grow one plant in DWC or 9 small plants, is the yield comparable between the 2 etc. Likewise what should I do with future clones one in a dwc/9 in coco or something Any recommendations greatly apreciated
  11. Hi all hope every one is good an well an I’d like to take this time to firstly introduce myself I’m 80s-lad so ok here goes I thinking of making a return to growing my own as there’s so much shit around it braces my heart a lot has changed since I last tested my green fingers (2007) so advice is what I’m looking for an any would be much appreciated so I’ve found me a small space 900mm x 1100mm by 2400 tall pots an soil oil is my previous background but my method has changed drastically Ie , feeds have been reformulated (Mother Earth grow an bloom) an soils seem to of been played with (canna terra pro plus) which resulted in a lot of what I think to be ph issues on my last venture so I thinking it time to introduce my green fingers to the way things work in the future (or that’s how it feels) so im after some suggestions/ideas on a nice simple set up to try/use ie soil (if this is advices) coco’s willma’s nft Systems to go in the small space I like the way 60/40 sounds (drip,Wilma) but have very limited hydro knowledge so im open to an advice an it would need a lot i have a few bits to build my room 600watt light (spudnik air cooled shade) Limatek ballast Sunmaster 600watt Metal HalId an a 600watt osram sun t 5inch rvk out an 4inch rvk in an climavator controler (think the controller needs updating) aswell as a 5inch Carbon filter my room will be finished very soon so any ideas please get involved
  12. Hello my fellow stoners, how are we today? Good, im glad to hear it! Well im back with another diary. Dinafem Mark very kindly gave me some seeds to grow out earlier in the year (purps#1 and purps moby dick). Due to my own stupidity and a cheap shite EC pen, I ended up pulling them in a rage. I had a few seeds left which I planted, but also had to pull, due to a security scare, and the fact that my set up wasn't set up all that well. So I decided to do it properly, and start from scratch. First I built a big fuck off room to house my new prisoners/victims plants er plants. Because I had previously promised Mark I would do a diary, I felt that I had unfinished business with the mobys, so went out and spent my own cash on a replacement purple moby beans......I know...…..the extravagance, but needs must. While I was at that I also decided to run some of my old favourite Super lemon hazes (I will try not to include them in this diary, but ive got to show you something later on …...no …..not that.....some plants.) So to my set up. Room is approx. 2.4 metres wide by 4.2 m long, ceilings are 2.4 high For these I will be using my newly constructed RDWC system, built from 60 litre totes, 40mm returns and 22mm top spray bars Its all run from a hailea HX 8840, which, to be perfectly honest is a bit on the small side, but it was cheap. Ive supplemented this poxy pump with a hailea airpump, with 1 stone per pot. The air stones aren't really needed, but I thought it would get them going in early veg. Ive ordered a chiller, as the temps are too high in the rdwc, its getting delivered today. Mobys on the left, not so super lemons on the right, its chalk and cheese. for the super lemons they are in 4x mega bubblers (60litre) , with 2 stones per pot run off a hailea 60l/min pump Ive got 4x lumii digita 600w dimmable ballasts with adjustawing shades, run off a timer box. RVK 8 inch A1 intake, 2x 12 inch RVK outtakes, both controlled from variac controllers. one runs at a pre set 50%, the other ramps up and down according to temps. Humidifier and dehumidifier when needed 2 oscillating fans Ionic nutrients, bluelab truncheon and ph meter, ph down all the usual shit, you know. Anyway the seeds were cracked, all the dinafem stuff cracked and were transplanted in to root it cubes, and into the propo with a scoosh every morning and night to keep them alive. they were in here for a week,The Dinafem stuff got out of the cubes in a day and started to reach for the lights, great stuff. while I tried to get the greenhouse seeds super crap lemons to germ. I eventually managed to get 5 of them, out of a 10 pack of seeds , to crack. one went into the cube and refused to do anything, at all. They eventually broke the surface, by the time the Mobys were needing into the net pots. I held them back a week till the not so super lemons tried to catch up. I eventually decided to get them into the room, after trying it out for a day or two to check temps etc. Temps were too high with the lights at 600, so ive had to turn them down to 400 till my air cooled hoods arrive (and yes, I know air cooled hoods are generally crap, but needs must. At 400w the fans are sitting on idle, which is great for outside noise, and the way I want to keep it. SO they have now been in the room for 10 days, and ive just topped the mobys at 4 nodes, so they will probably take a few days to recover before going for it again.. So far they look great, apart from a little fan burn, and are very consistant in size and development. As for the Not so super lemons, well, have a look, they are all different sizes, with 2 underdeveloped runts, which I will give another week or so, and if they don't start growing properly, they will be seeing the compost bin. neeedless to say, I should have gone with the quick Kush instead of these bloody things, but hopefully 2 of them will provide some decent smoke. I wont be doing them again tho, im fairly sure of that, just look at them, they look pathetic compared to the mobys. Enough of my drivel, heres some pics, of the mobys, they look pretty much identical pheno wise, so far, which is nice. These are in flood and drain net pots, big 10 inch jobs, with a nice flat rim, so they wont topple when they get big, which should help. And the not so super lemons, looking all over the place. the 2nd and 3rd ones looks decidedly ill to me. oh well, too late to start more, i'll just put up with it. these are in 200mm nets so they are at least 1/3rd smaller than the mobys. Currently being fed at 0.5ec, ph is 5.7 Last week they were started at 0.4ec, ph 5.8. So let the journey begin...………………………... And the award for the longest opening post goes to...……..me.
  13. Hi guys and girls I’m looking for you guindence and knowledge, regarding setup for a 2.4 by 2.4 tent. Never done hydro before but my friends have and the results have been positive. I was thinking a gravity fed system 12 pot, but maybe I’m wrong. So any help and advice you can throw my way would be great.
  14. Hi guys, I am about to start growing some autos in 3 gallon bubble pots, DWC style grow. I bought a load of Canna Aqua (not everyone's favourite I know - but I was suckered by some dude's ridiculous looking grow on Youtube ) and I was wondering what type of volumes to use. I intended to just follow the Canna guide for light feeding but I heard that Autos typically don't eat as much as photo plants. I grew some photos in the past and followed the guide and they burned!! Can anyone advise from their experience if the light feeding guide is realistic for autos? If not I will probably just start off one third the recommended and see how they do. I was advised in the past that you know the feed level is correct when the EC does not drop by the time the water is changed. The idea being that the plants are taking the same ratio of nutes and water, or does this just mean that you are wasting loads of food when the water is changed? Thanks a lot, T
  15. Is this doable? Currently using 60/40 in the F&D and it just takes too long to dry out, so I want to switch to clay pebbles, but this means I need to change my veg system: I'd like to use the oxypot system to veg then transplant into my IWS F&D system, would I be able to remove the plant from the oxypot without damaging the root system? Or could I put the whole pot into the IWS pot and add more pebbles? Thanks
  16. Hello everyone, long story short my mum is dying from lung cancer and we have been treating her with RSO, whilst starting our own grow to make more. Im not a grower, I have little experience and unfortunately less money so buying bud and top quality oil is beyond my reach. This is probably going to be a longish post and if you could just bare with me I would very much appreciate any and all help. I have a wilma 10 pot hydro system in a 1.5x1.5 tent, a pair of 600w chinese led lights (borrowed) and a 6" extraction fan. I am having issues with my crop, 5x Peyote Critical and 2 Ayahuasca Purple (3 died in rockwool) plus 3 tomato plants as experiments before putting the cannabis into the system. Yellowing of leaves and little upward growth showing on the peyote critical but not on the AP nor on the tomatoes. I begain with Atami b'cuzz neutrients as I had them from a few years ago messing with aeroponic propagation, I used half strength amounts, Ph'd my tap water to 5.6, added airstones to the res tank and set the feeding for 15mins every 4 hours, lights were approx 15inches from the plants and set on an 18hour schedule. Straight away I had PH issues and rising EC levels, which I kept putting back to when I filled the system up and watched what would happen. after a couple of weeks everyone started growing and throwing out plenty of green but little height.. next up the yellowing started, just on the tips and not on every leaf, little to none on the AP and none at all on the tomatoes. I sought advice with a growshop and was recommended to flush the system with ph'd water for 4 days and change my neutrients, remove all yellow leaves, raise my lights as they might be to intense and connect the extractor as it was not running yet (thought that was more necessary for smell later in the grow) I bought the Bio Green starter grow box nutrients containing 250ml Bio 1 Grow250ml Bio 2 Bloom250ml Calgel250ml PK 13-14250ml BioZym250ml X-Rooting250ml X-Bloom mixed what their schedule stated for week 1 at half strength using GROW, X-ROOT, CALGEL and BIOZYM Tap water is 6.8ph 202ppm tds 0.3 EC I added everything to 42 liters of water, my EC ended up at 0.60, PH 5.6 and set all the timers etc running the extraction at hlf power and lights raised. Tent temps are hovering about 20C Humidity hovers between 55 and 70 RH. looking at the plants today and the yellowing is starting again. Im going to try adding photos now of the plants with no LEDs on so you can see the colours better and hopefully someone can help me out as i really need this grow to succeed and supply some buds to make more oil with. Ill figure out adding images shortly, for now a helpful soul has kindly added them as a reply below, they are also added to my gallery on here Thanks for your time Jeff
  17. 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
  18. 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...
  19. Some weeds come up tight when grown, some loose. I used to diss the open structure buds, but since i (mostly) just use a pipe now i have absloutely no issue with looser structures. In fact I think I prefer them. You get more of a flavour burst on a quick strong chong...I dont think theres any quiality issues relative to bud structure, in fact I had some proper proper airy bud in the summer due to heat issues, and that turned out to be my most pleasureable smoke to be honest, flavour wise anyways. I always wanted tight dense nuggs, then I realised the more you have to do it it, the more THC/CBD gets stuck everywhere except in the place its supposed to be...My airy bud... I just take a piece, and burn it, full flavor with minimal touching...^^ I wished I had more of it to be honest, the rest is rock hard, dense and tight, which means Im losing most of the trichs on the prep, rather than the chong... Just wondered what anyone else thought, and the reason for it...?
  20. Hi guys This is my first time going the hydroponics way I think this is the 3rd week in and I'm not to sure what the problem would be I've looked around for google but still can't find what I'm looking for I've always done a soil grow and haven't had this before Yesterday I put clean ph water and a little feed Any help would be greatly appreciated
  21. Hi all, I have been successfully growing in soil for a while now, using SCROG method, in a 1mx1mx2m tent; 1 or 2 plants at a time under a 600w lamp*, using decent photo-period fem seeds. I usually get @ 5oz dry quality bud/plant. (*I am thinking of getting a 400w as 600 is probably a little too much for my small grows!) Although I find this set up allows for a fairly low maintenance grow, I have to be away from home quite regularly, usually a week, and a couple of 4-5 day stints per 3 month period/grow cycle. Luckily I have a house mate who keeps an eye on, and waters them for me, but I would like to find another solution for more independence. So, I have been looking at hydro/aero/coco systems and am thinking that maybe 2 small NFT system Grotanks (1 plant in each) might be a good, simple solution. My main question is; would this type of system be ok to run automatically for up to a week at a time, occasionally whilst I am away? Or are there better alternatives? I would also appreciate any thoughts/tips/comments from you experienced growers out there, regarding the difference between soil/hydro v quality/yield, maintenance, 600w v 400w, and potentially sgrogging a hydro/nft set up? Cheers!

  23. Hi All I always have 99.9% success with cutting in my X-Stream aero prop BUT never any success with popping seeds the normal way, in rockwool/root riot etc... Seeds do produce a the main tap root BUT EVERYTIME i transfer to a 3" rockwool cube the main tap root does NOT grow into the cube ???? I WANT to try and 'pop' them in my X-Stream..... I have only read one person who does this (after googling !!) and his process was to fill the small net pots half way with pebbles, then 'sandwich' the seed between some toilet paper and top with more pebbles... Has ANYONE done this or got a method ? I have a variable timer on my pump so i can set it to spray fro 10 seconds every hour if need be... Cheers in advance guys !!!
