  2. Hello all, its been some time since I've completed a diary, I hope this one will get over the line. Anyway @VRG looked after some months ago with some Screwballs and UGORG#1 bx1. Thank you! I've had these in 1L pots since march, landlord was getting work done over the summer so no grow till now. Anyway, all is sorted now with the place. I've got everything set up again and just potted everything into 3l pots a few days ago. I've added a Blumat system to them today, they will be given light canna nuts with blumats. 1/2 times a week I will brew up compost tea and that will be main source of feed for them. Get these grown out and find the best mum in them. I'm not great with diaries, but I will do my best to keep this updated and get it finished. I've started with 10 seeds but we are down to 5 now, all but one has been sexed and last should show now it has been potted up. I forgot to take pics of 1 and 2 will get next time Screwball#3 or 4 messed up with tags here and this ones clone died. Screwball#5 mum and sexing clone Screwball#6 "" "" This is the clone#6 I used to sex. Love the 3 branch node here, strong AF branches!

  3. kc brains

    Hey folks, I picked up some KC Brains regs this week. Such good prices, I couldn't resist. Also read a few reports and reviews on the interwebs waxing lyrical about some of these "old skool" strains. Seem to have a good reputation. Anyone here grown any of his strains? Recently or many years ago? Please share your experiences, opinions. Also, do you have a favourite strain? Peace.
  4. Hi, probably a stupid question, but I am in the position to use water from my water butt to water my plants. I would always do this outdoors, but I want to water indoor plants with it too. However, I am aware insects spawn in rainwater, it has been collected off the felted roof of my new shed where there will be some bird crap etc for it to wash through. I will be putting each filled container in, or adjacent to my tent to reach room temperature before using it. As it might sit for a few days between waterings, I am just wondering if incubating whatever is in it is a bad idea and it should be treated somehow? Should I bother filtering it or dropping anything in it to kill potential life in it before using it for my indoor organic grow? If so, what? I am guessing not, but any opinions gratefully received!

  5. Got one of those Ambient Homebox 80x80x180 grow tents the other day, first time I've grown using a tent. I'm using a 125mm TT exhaust at the top and a passive intake of about the same size down at the bottom. The passive intake has a mosquito net around it to prevent anything from coming in but a ton of light leaks out. Growing autos so i'm not too concerned about the plants but I would like to find a solution to stop the light leak for security purposes. I covered the passive intake today with the cover that comes with the homebox. Negative pressure increased dramatically and temps went up a bit but still holding in the respectable zone. The tent is basically sucking in air from any little gaps it finds as there is no dedicated intake. Am i okay leaving it like this? OR am i setting myself up for issues down the line? Cheers LD
  6. All my autos are flowering now. One, a critical banana smoothie from taste budz is already done. All my filtered spaces are full though. I had to move a sweet berry cough into the area I was going to dry in as it’s almost the same height as me. I don’t know what plant is what, I had written it on the pots but it’s seems to have rubbed off. I had a few watermelon punch in there so I think I can tell them apart. Other than that there is a gelato and a back to the future 2. it’s like opening a tent door to Christmas
  7. First hello all and great that u found this site since it's mostly people who grow in UK and that would give me better help regarding everything from shopping for equipment to how to combat this amazing English effin weather lol. I don't know if this is the right thread to post this in, but I'm gonna give it a go and if it's not please guide me as to where it would suite better. First I'm planning to grow 1 or 2 plants nothing much just for own need, and I'm limited with space and my most important is hiding the smell. I came with a list of items to get but I don't know how efficient and good they are, so I list them down hoping that someone here tried them. Tent: BLACK ORCHID Hydro-box 60x60x160cm LED lights few options based on the internet search but don't know which would be worth it more based on how much electricity they take Vs they efficiency in growing. Spider Farmer SF1000 MARSHYDRO Newest TS 1000 Carbon filter and inline fan: Vortex 6'' Premium Carbon Filter Vortex 6'' Inline Fan Soil: Which would be better to go with from start to finish BioBizz 50L Light-Mix BioBizz 50L All-Mix Sorry if it's to much links but just wondering which would be better. My budget is £300 in total Including the rest of the equipment and soil, I'm spending the most on the important things since as I mentioned smell is the major concern and after electricity.
  8. Hi lads did someone attempted to wire drivers safely outside the box for better cooling ? Im curious if it can be done safely. My setup involves arctic 64 plus fans, vero 29s and some hlg 240h /2100 b. I have pretty weird box design and would like to use metal shelf rack inside the box as a construction that would allow me to split the box into two separate storeys. first would be veg second bloom. The light isolation would not be an issue, but I want to avoid electrocuting myself so I would like to learn how those cobs are grounded or if only driver needs to be grounded. here is a noobie diagram of what I have and want to do : https://imgur.com/ZvkSX8U I would be very happy if you share your thoughts with me about this, my original thought was using one storey lighted up during the day and other during the night ( with light isolation between them, so one would have light and other darkness.
  9. Hi All, I'm back again after my first grow in a shipping container 3 years ago. This time I'm just doing a simple grow at home in a 60x60x140 grow tent. I've purchased white widdow autos from the vault: (They haven't arrived just yet. Maybe brevity has broken some deliveries?) In the past I used Dinafem with great results, but can't purchase from them right now Anyway. My first grow I kept my autos in coco coir used the standard canna A&B - I can't remember the dosage. I'm sure it was 5ml of each per litre of water? And finally I kept the lights on (600w lamp) 24/7 but now I'm using LED,should I change anything? Thanks for reading. I hope someone can help
  10. Hi, there probably is the info somewhere, but couldnt find it but just got a couple questions regarding my first grow! i basically just found a few bagseeds, from a while ago planted 3, and 1 has actually come along really nicely! just transfeered into a bigger pot as it outgrew the first! First question is, my garden is south east facing and gets probably a solid 6 hours of direct sunlight a day, from behind some sliding glass doors, which is definitely doing the job for now. my main question is, am i headed for trouble once in the vegetative stage? ive read they requite a lot more light, some people leaving them on 24 hours of artificial light. I have a super bright LED bulb to stick in the cupboard in case, its basically 16W (equivalent to 140W halogen, 1600 lumens) it also says day light 6000k on the box (not sure what that means), is this going to help? will this be any good for flowering as well or am i best just moving it to my glass doors for the day then sticking in the cupboard. also would moving it out of a cupboard, everyday the fact its 1 cool LED negate the need for a fan? also bought 5 real deal feminized auto flowering seeds, will they be almost as simple as letting the them chill by my glass doors? Thanks and sorry if all this info is out there somewhere this just seemed simple. heres a few photos of the plant and the spaces i have to grow (just waiting for the beer to finish brewing in the bigger cupboard then gunna obviously clear it out) just for a reference. Anyway if anyone does have any reassuring words or advice to improve my success, it'd be much appreciated! Im just looking to get some nice smokeable bud without spending a fortune on kit Thanks in advance and hope everyones having a chilled, healthy time!
  11. Hello everyone, this is my first time growing indoor and I am very confused because I found too many information, but after days of researches I think I came up with something good: - 3 Quick One RQS autoflowers: 8 weeks, 60 cm max height - BudBox Lite - 0.6m x 0.9m x 0.9m - Grow Tent - 3 Air Pruner Fabric Pots 8 liters 20cm X 20cm X 23cm - BioBizz Light-Mix Soil 20 litre (plus some extra perlite) - Mars Hydro TS 1000 LED I think that 3 Quick One with a max height of 60cm will fit good in a 90cm height tent, also the light seems to be appropriate for 3 autoflowers. I will then add 2 fan (1 in, 1 out I guess?) and that's it. What do you think ? Am I missing something ? Thank you for your replies <3
  12. Hi, What’s the general consensus when it comes to heat vs light? I can hold a temp of around 28c if the light is dimmed or around 32c on full
  13. Hi guys, this is my first grow and first time posting. Any tips or advice be much appreciated have no experience but got to start somewhere! will update this as i go have been late starting this diary have been meaning to get it done but not had time recently so here it goes! It may seem like im going on and asking alot but as said just looking to see what people think and if any pointers as no experience! My setup: 1.2x1.2x2.00 Budbox pro with silver lining LUMii Black 600w Digital Ballast with 230V Phillips Greenpower BulbAdjust-A-Wings Medium EnforcerAgrolab Hygrometer1x 6" RAM Clip on fanRhino Hobby 125/3005" Systemair RVK extraction fan So I have 3 BCN Critical XXLS in 12ltr Fabric pots on the right side and 2 Nothern Lights, 1 Candy Dawg in 8ltr Fabric pots on the left. As can see from the photo they are quite far on already as i write this they have just entered there 6th week yesterday. Criticals are planted in PlantMagic Supreme and the other 3 are just planted in John Innes Multi Purpose as didnt have enough PlantMagic left so just had to get the only thing local garden center had! Plant progress/photos so far Critical1 Critical2 - This plant has been slower than the rest running about a week behind buthas started to take off now! Critical 3 Northern 1 Northern 2 Candy Dawg So far upto around week 4 they were only given water and around 1ml per litre of PM Bio-Silicone every second watering then once hit the 3/4 week old i started to give them 1.5ml of PM Oldtimers Grow again this was only every second feed i fed this alongside Bio-Silicone. Entering week 5 when started to pre-flower i dropped it to 1ml grow and 1ml PM Oldtimers Bloom per litre on every feed however last few feeds after speaking to someone who has previous experience switched to only 1.5ml Bloom on every feed! I am currently doing the wet dry cycle with the 12ltr pots recieving about 2ltr every 2/3days once the soil is dry. Also which im away to go into in a moment i started to add cal/mag 1ml per litre as had notice some markings on some leaves which started with Critical 3 but since adding the defect hasnt seemed to progress any further! Light has been constantly hung between 12-18inches. When seedlings i started on 250W the increased to 400w once had 2nd set leafs and then upto 600w around the 3 or 4 week mark. Deficiency's: Critical 3 So i started to notice these little spots on my plant Critical 3 towards the end of week 4. I dont no anything about deficiency or stuff like that but all other plants were fine and after have a search on google put it down to a calcium deficiency and started to add calmag 1ml per ltr to all plants. These dont seem to have progressed that i can see so im hoping my guess at the calcium deficiency was right! However today when was feeding them as can see on middle photo i noticed a few lower leaves are this very light way around the edges which im unsure as to why? Northern Lights 1 Today when feeding i noticed these very large random brown spots on this plant these have just appeared and the plants are being given calmag and bloom so again unsure as to the cause of this or if its anything to be worried about? Could it be water sat on the leaf from a previous feed thats caused it to burn or something else? All Plants across all 6 plants ive started to notice the tips of the leafs especially new leafs are very long thin and some twisted again is this normal or something to be worried about? Ive tried to add in everything i can remember, have done and come across to make this as complete as possible and to try help you help me haha. Will keep this updated as i go! I also did have 24 plants outdoors in a forest these were started in the tent for 2 weeks in small plastic cups then taken to site, i just dug holes straight into the ground and filled with soil from local garden centre and re planted into that! All was going perfect with them but last week they catapillers found them and pretty much munched every leaf of of 20 of them and only 4 they didnt touch! i amnt going to make a diary for these purely again due to the fact i didnt get time at first and now there in a right mess so will probably post photos of the end results of them! went back out to them the other day and wasnt as bad as initial damage assesment of only 4 being salavagable it seems there are still 15 i might get return of off so heres hoping but will see how it goes im just expecting the worse now so if does turn out its a bonus will keep posted though! Cheers for taking time to read threw this
  14. 8 weeks -The Quick One

    So for the last 8 weeks I've been growing "The Quick One" in my bedroom cupboard, the choice of this one is so I can start saving money ASAP. She is grown in canna coca with perlite under a 125w CFL and a 60w LED in a 40 x 40 cm tent This is my first caannabis grow but am a chilli grower so used same principles to a point then joined here! As a youngster she had a spicy friend but now shes to big for anything else to join her. I saw the first buds start to appear last night and am really excited now :D
  15. Hey guys, Usually don't grow during summer because I'm in a smallish grow tent, and my HPS just always over heats the space. Every summer grow I've done so far I end up with bleached colas, and other problems. I've started some girls for outside this year, because why not...but also want to do an indoor grow over summer. So thinking about ditching HPS and trying LED. But absolutely no clue where to start. I want something decent, willing to pay up to £300 hopefully. Suggestions? I'll be growing Hazes mainly. Ideally want something with a midrange colour temp of around 6500k - 10000k. Plenty of blue, and some UV too if possible (maybe just supplement that with a reptile bulb?).
  16. Hi UK420, new grower here. Very curious to hear any thoughts or advice for a noob in coco, my main concern being that I'm using organic pellets (I expected to need to get a housemate to water while i work away and wanted to keep feeding simple) with Coco on a first ever grow. Tent: 50cm x 90cm small grow tent 108w output full spectrum LED 2x 6" fans for circulation 4" RAM extraction fan + Carbon filter Humidifer 2.8ltr 80w tube heater I have been playing with the environment over the last week and now have decent control over it. With such a small space it's relatively easy to increase/decrease the factors but keeping them steady is the challenge. Growing with: 2x Royal Queen Seeds Royal Jack Automatic seeds Royal Queen Seeds Easy Boost Organic Nutrition pellets. I inquired to confirm whether this would work in Coco with autos and the breeder told me it should be fine but I have since become unsure 8% Organic Nitrogen, 7% Phosphoric anhydride, 12% Potassium oxide, 10% Sulphur trioxide, 2% Magnesium Oxide, 30% 'organic material' Canna Coco pro plus mixed with ~25% perlite 2x 11 litre fabric pots By the time I started having my doubts about my organic nutrition it was too late and i had already pre mixed it all and potted, so I thought I would just crack on anyway rather than throw it. I germinated using the paper towel method and when the tap roots were about 1cm I planted them directly into the coco about 1cm deep. Now my first issue/question: I pre-rinsed through my coco a couple of days ago and it was still quite wet when I planted the seeds, though the top had started to dry (bits of light brown) a little. Is this too wet an environment to have planted in or will the coco/perlite drainage be okay? My research has seen some suggest that it's nigh impossible to overwater in coco/perlite/fabric pots and others say that anything other than a bit of water in the seed area will drown it/stump early growth of roots. The tent environment is 23-25C, 60-70% humidity, low level of extraction currently, light on 24h but once sprouting I think i'll go 18/6. The LED is currently 2ft from the pot and on the less intense 'veg' setting. I planted 28 hours ago, already getting nervous to see them pop up! My more fundamental query is whether using those organic pellets is a good idea at all in coco with an auto? I do own Canna A+B, CalMag, 13/14 PK Boost but it would be nice to not have to throw out all the coco, perlite and organic pellets I have mixed but equally I don't want to set myself up for a fail or a very problematic first grow. Any advice on my specific queries or any pointers about my set up in general would be appreciated.

  22. Winter ready

    From the album Summer 2019

  23. Morning all, I’m planning on my first grow and after doing a bit of reading i want to give SOG a go. I also want a hydro set up to make watering and feeding a bit easier. My tent will be a 1.2 square budbox and after reading a few threads this weekend, I was going to fill it with between 9 and 12 pots. I’m not averse to coir as I already use it in my garden, and if I went that route, I’d set up a Dripper system from an outside res. However, I saw the Oxypot veg DWC 9 pot system over the weekend and wondered if it would perform well for a SOG grow in a 1.2 tent? It’s about 82.5cm square, so leaves room around the edges of the tent for a radiator and dehumidifier. I’m planning on a 600w digital ballast. Thanks in advance, Al.
  24. Hi all. First Post, so please be gentle if I forget any info. (Have I even posted in the right place??) Growing 4 strains all autoflower (6 plants) in an 8'x4' with 3x Mars Hydro Reflector 600s, coco medium and using Plagron nutes (cocs a&b, Pure Zym, Green Sensation) Spring water with base EC of 0.2. Currently approx day 62 from seed. Temp is between 24 & 26, humidity sits between 40 & 48. Think I had a bit of lockout due to a dodgy EC pen and overfertilizing, but have 'flushed' with a weaker feed and now getting run off EC of 1.8, with a feed of 1.5-1.7 going in, so happy now that there's no build up. However, I've got clawing leaves on my Charlotte's Angel (a high cbd strain, first time I've grown) and also on one of the Northern Lights. Hopefully photos are attached **No, they're not. How do you add photos here??!!**. Northern has yellowing edges to the leaves, Charlotte is a good colour, just has a massive case of claw going on. Any advice?
