  1. Really happy as Seeds arrived today courtesy of @Dinafem-Mark and @Intense Nutrients Matt Thank you very much gentlemen. grow diary time! I'm going to be growing them in a 1.2m tent with a 600w HPS. (Clip fans, etc.) I'll be doing three of each variety. Three OGJ and Three OJ. Six total, Alongside three sweet seeds speed autoflowers I will be doing a seperate diary for the sweet seed autoflowers to show each respective variety off better. Best of luck everyone. May the best man win!
  2. Well a bit of a latecomer to the Dinafem X Intense Nutrients grow off show but finally here we go. First of all a big thankyou to @Dinafem-Mark and @Intense Nutrients Matt for making this happen and supplying the seeds and Intense nutrients Organix range. I've been looking forward to this as i've never grown any Dinafem before but these Blueberry and Ocean Grown cookies sound delicious, also new to the Intense Nutrients Organix range although for my current grow in flower i have been using Organix Grow and Bloom with excellent results so far and the plants seem to love it. This grow i will be using the Organix Granules, Grow, Bloom, Foundation and Runzyme kindly sent to me for this competition by @Intense Nutrients Matt. As a quick rundown this grow will hopefully be just 1 each of the Blueberry and Ocean Grown Cookies in compost, ighting for veg will be T5's, 250w and 400MH, mixed spectrum 400w HPS and a 315w CMH 930 Agro Lamp for flowering in a Scrog. This grow will be started in my DR90 tent for i expect most of vegging and then the girls will be transferred into my main 90cm x 90cm x 210cm Growdrobe for rest of veg then flowering. Only one seed has just broken ground so far so tomorrow will be Day 1 for her, i'm sure the other will appear anytime just now. Before i start the diary here is a rundown of my setup, equipment and methods used. New eqipment has also been purchased for the DR90 tent as you will read below, so all new environment and things for this grow but all should be good. SECRET JARDIN DR90 TENT & INTAKE/EXTRACTION. So this grow will be started in my Secret Jardin DR90 tent, i've owned this for around 10 years but this will only be my second grow with it so its virtually new and kept in its original bag, as some of you know i usually grow in my 90cm x 90cm growdrobe but that is currently occupied with a grow in flowering for a few weeks yet. So same size tent as my normal growspace but a little less headroom. Now i used to use Variacs to control the intake/extraction but i have just purchased a SMSCom Hybrid controller to control the environment in there. The Hybrid is a superb device and does its job perfectly controlling the temps in there. When i used to use Variacs i sometimes had to slow the fans further at light off in cold times but this Hybrid controls everything light on or off to keep a stable temp at all times. The Intake and Extraction fans controlled by the Hybrid are both 5" Rucks although the intake is not as powerful. The Hybrid did cost me just under £250 but its worth every penny in my opinion it also has a feature where every hour at only light off it will crank up the speeds of the fans one notch just to remove that extra moisture in the air that builds up at lights off, i can see this being very useful in flowering when a high RH is not good, this feature does not have to be used and the unit comes complete with a shade to cover the sensor if not required. Fans are completely silent with no humming whatsover like the Variacs. The Hybrid has solved the variable temps in the tent and this means i can leave it and forget, good thing too in summer with higher temps it will raise the fans speed on its own to keep temps stable. The growdrobe is actually a walk-in wardrobe with 3 brick walls and the door so i suppose this explains why the growdrobe runs cooler than the tent although its in the same room. The Carbon filter is a 5" Rhino Pro and everything is connected up with Phonic Acoustic ducting. A pick here of my DR90 and Air Cooled Hood connected. > And my new SMSCom Hybrid controller which fully controls the environment silently. > LIGHTING FOR TENT- SEEDLING/VEGGING. The lighting for the tent in eary veg will be a Maxibright T5 4 tube fluorescent, 96w of power (24w each tube) and measures 59cm(W), 37cm(D) and 6cm(D), on/off switch and is wired to a Maxiswitch 2-way contactor (10Amps) and Grasslin timer, i have 2 of these units and i really recommend them for vegging as the keep the plants short, give off little heat and the light spread is great, i've vegged for 3 weeks using these units in the past and the result was very stocky healthy looking plants, they seem to love the light spectrum. Later on in veg i will swap the T5's for a 250w MH then a 400w MH, after that maybe a 400w mixed spectrum HPS all in a 5" Air-cooled hood. Pic of one of my T5's setup in my main room. > So the tent is ready to go, temps at light on even under the 400w MH is no more than 26c, light off around 21c. Once vegging is nearly done the girls wil be transferred to my main growdrobe, set as below. > GROWDROBE & INTAKE/EXTRACTION. The room is a converted walk-in wardrobe, The drobe measures 3ft x 3ft 7ft and covered top to bottom in the Orca Grow film, everything is covered including the shelves and door. Easy to put up as its much stronger than mylar and almost impossible to tear, no glue or paste was used in the room as i stapled it on with a heavy duty staple gun. It's very bright in the room and the Orca is very easy to clean as spillages just wipe off being as its waterproof. Temperatures are always stable at around 27c lights on, about 22c off. Intake is a 5" twin speed Ruck fan fully controlled by a 3A 0-240v Variac and the extraction is a 5"Ruck fan with STR Voltage stepping fan controller with a 5" Carboair carbon filter connected to 90 degree bend and Acoustic ducting. Air circulation is x2 6" clip on fans. Thermometer/Hygrometer. There is a steel Scrog net i made to fit the growdrobe which will also be used this grow once the plants are in there. My growdrobe with Scrog net fitted > 3a 0-240v Variac and STR Voltage stepping controller. > LIGHTING FOR GROWDROBE- FLOWERING. Light for Flowering will be the Maxiibright 315w CMH system with the 930 Master Greenpower Agro lamp, i did used to own the 942 lamp too for veg but ths blew a few weeks ago and decided not to replace it and just veg under MH. The shade is a Maxibright Focus cmh dedicated reflecftor.(old pic, ignore the 942 lamp and shade adaptor as they are not used now) > SOIL/NUTRIENTS This grow the soil will be the Clover Multipurpose compost, only my third time using this but my previous grows had no issues so i'm going to carry on using this for now. I've used PM compost for years with great success and also used Jacks Magic successfully but found it a bit rich for some plants. Nutrients will be Intense Nutrients Organix Grow, Bloom, OG Granules, Foundation and Runzyme kindly supplied by @Intense Nutrients Matt SEEDS. The seeds used for this grow will be a single Dinafem Blueberry Cookie and a single Dinafem Ocean Grown Cookie. 5 of each of these seeds were generously sent for this comp by @Dinafem-Mark I'll only be germinating the two seeds (one of each) as i do like growing two plants in a Scrog which perfectly fills my space with 2 big pots. The other 8 seeds will be started at a later date, probably next grow if they turn out tasty. BLUEBERRY COOKIES > Blueberry Cookies by Dinafem Seeds is a feminisedcannabis seed descended from a Girl Scout Cookies and our elite mother Blueberry. Fully aware of the immense popularity of the Cookies family across the USA, our team of breeders put their hearts into creating a hybrid that would bring the amazing traits of this world-renowned strain to their limit. Born in San Francisco Bay, Girl Scout Cookies was named after her delicious uncanny scent reminiscent of freshly-baked cookies. Is there any better match for this sweet cocktail than a Blueberry with mouth-watering aromas of fresh blueberries? After a long cross-breeding process aimed at only selecting the traits that would outdo the original ones, our team of breeders has created Blueberry Cookies, a hard-hitting hybrid called to surprise the palates of hard-to-impress veterans. Morphology Blueberry Cookies grows into mid-sized plants that can reach 3 meters in optimal conditions when cultivated outdoors. Her branches are solid and her internodes are rather large, meaning light can easily penetrate the canopy and reach the lower branches giving way to evenly distributed, elongated, amazingly thick, and resin-packed flowers. All Cookies hybrids are famous for the purple nuances covering them, but this one in particular, thanks to her Blueberry side, is a spectacular display of reddish, violet, and purplish hues. Besides, with a moderate calyx-to-leaf ratio, trimming her will not be a pain in the ass. We recommend safekeeping her sugar leaves for the delicious resin on them can be used to make incredible concentrates. Expect extremely thick and heavy spiky-looking buds with large calyxes, a rarity that ordinary Kush genetics don’t generally have. She’s indeed so beautiful that even us, the Dinafem team, can’t stop staring at her. Yield Blueberry Cookies is noted for the density and weight of her buds. The best things are said to come in small packages, a saying we totally agree with. Despite their reduced size, her flowers are remarkably compact and come with a thick coating of frosty resin glands and off-the-charts aromas. Aromas and flavours The popularity of the Cookies family stems primarily from their enticing aroma and no wonder. While U.S. Kush strains just offered earthy and fuelly tastes with some coffee undernotes, the Cookies smell like pie. They’re so delicious that they make you want to take a big bite out of their dried buds. That’s why our team of breeders thought the fruity perfume of Blueberry will make the best companion. This is how Blueberry Cookies was born: a tasty fruit pie with intense nuances of wild berries dancing together in a cake-like, Indica background. While growing, buds give off a strong yet fresh fruity scent. However, after the curing and drying, it turns much sweeter, more or less like smelling pastries. Effects Coming from a U.S. family of genetics, it couldn‘t be otherwise. Blueberry Cookies delivers a crushing head and body high. Thanks to her Indica dominance and her 18% THC levels (with 0.1% CBD), this strain produces a highly narcotic and muscle-relaxing effect. Cultivation Blueberry Cookies is very easy to grow and thrives outdoors. She is incredibly vigorous, meaning she loves stretching during the growth stage. Outdoor growers will obtain bigger yields for this plant shows her full potential when grown in the open air. So, without nosy neighbours nearby, she should be put no limits. Direct sunlight will help Blueberry Cookies fully develop. There’s a big difference between a vigorous growth and a weak flower development produced by the lack of sunlight. This beautiful purplish plant, in particular, copes well with outdoor conditions. If provided with a bit of attention, a standard feeding regime, and a warm environment (also suitable for northern climates), she’s sure to produce top-quality crops by early October. Flowering wraps up in 55-60 days indoors, where we recommend using organic growing methods so as not to modify her tastes and aromas, which, along with her mind-blowing effect, are the main reason why we should all grow her this year.

The popularity of the Cookies family stems primarily from their original taste as well as from the quality and exclusive traits that have earned them a well-deserved place among the most important U.S. cannabis heavyweights along with OG Kush and Sour Diesel. And the truth is that those who try her extraordinary tastes and aromas get instantly addicted to them For that very reason, no sooner did we get our hands on an elite clone of Girl Scout Cookies than we knew something really special had to be done. And is there anything more special than crossing the most famous Girl Scout of the west coast and another Californian all-time classic as is the incredible OG Kush? From this powerful marriage comes Ocean Grown Cookies. As always, it became our obsession to bring the best Cali taste to the highest pitch of perfection. And that's exactly what Ocean Grown Cookies is: a cannabis jewel born close to the Pacific boasting the strong scent that has pushed American strains to their legendary status. Morphology Ocean Grown Cookies grows into mid-sized plants that can reach 3 meters in optimal conditions when cultivated outdoors. Her branches are thin yet solid, although using stakes during the vegging period is highly advisable for they'll let more light into the canopy and the plant will, therefore, produce more pointy and bulky buds overflowing with highly resinous trichomes. They’ll also prove useful for preventing the branches from snapping due to the weight of the flowers. This plant is the perfect blend of Girl Scout Cookies and OG Kush. With rather long internodes, she acquires a beautiful purplish colouring that makes her a sight to behold. Besides, those who find trimming a nuisance will love hearing that she presents an adequate calyx-to-leaf ratio.

Besides, those who find trimming a nuisance will love hearing that she presents an adequate calyx-to-leaf ratio. Aromas and flavours It is thanks to this that Cookies hybrids have carved out a place among the most reputed strains of all time: their tastes and scents are simply amazing. We wondered whether we’d manage to give the already incredible aromas of Girl Scout Cookies a twist by crossing her with OG Kush, another world reference for quality U.S. flavours and predecessor of GSC. We soon realised, though, that this was indeed a winning bet. That’s how Ocean Grown Cookies was born; a mind-blowing strain noted for her potency and distinctive aroma, hallmark of the west coast: a blend of earthy and Kushy scents with sweet and fruity undernotes. This strain provides U.S. cannabis enthusiasts with a breath of fresh air because she still keeps the traditional Kush background intact thanks to the OG Kush genes in her. Something in between the typical diesel scents of the U.S. family and the innovative sweet and fruity tastes, similar to those of pastries, that are killing it right now across the States. This perfectly balanced blend makes Ocean Grown Cookies a great choice for seasoned palates looking for new and surprising flavours who don’t want to give up on the intense aftertaste of Californian Kush hybrids. Effects The high delivered by Ocean Grown Cookies can only be described with one word: devastating. Her crushing THC levels of around 20% and her almost non-existent CBD content (approx. 0.1%) make her particularly powerful. Her psychoactive effect is incredibly potent, narcotic, and long-lasting. Expect a gentle blow of euphoria that goes straight to the head and turns into a nice feel of physical relaxation over time. Powerful, hard-hitting, and sedative, in true Californian style. Cultivation Despite coping well with northern chilly climates, she does prefer warm Mediterranean-like environments or greenhouses. However, given her medium size and bushy form, she’s the perfect candidate for growing indoors. By meeting her basic needs, we'll easily obtain great results with her. For the delicious taste of Ocean Grown Cookies to remain untouched, organic growing practices are highly recommended. Besides, given her Indica dominance, this jewel is not a heavy feeder, so a standard diet should suffice. This way, we’ll maximize her incredible scents. We promise: it’ll be worth it!

  3. A little late to the party, but I've made it all the same First up, thanks to @Dinafem-Mark and @Intense Nutrients Matt for getting together and giving us load of awesome free stuff! I started 2 of each quick gorilla and OG cookies last night in levingtons M2 compost with a sprinkle of OG granules mixed. Hopefully I'll see life in 4 - 5 days. They'll start off in the flower area while it's on a veg timer, then when I flower the current clones I'll move them into the 40 X 100 veg area under a 65W QB where they'll stay under they get too big or the other stuff is finished... 6 - 8 weeks... Plenty of time to do a bit of training on them. Current temps in the flower area are 19 - 23°C at pot level, this is the only temp I'm interested in
  4. Ok seeds arrived in the post this morning so thank you goes out to @Dinafem-Mark and all at @Dinafem Seeds. I will be running Dinafem - Quick Gorilla and Dinafem - Ocean Grown Cookies. All seeds will be planted starting with the Ocean Grown Cookies and a few weeks later followed by the Quick Gorilla. I will be growing in Coco from start to finish. I will be doing a few pot ups and flowering some of the plants out in 11 litre Air Pots. Veg time for the Ocean Grown Cookies will be 8-10 weeks or when the flower cab has free space. Grow style ie scrog, xmas trees etc I have not decided on yet. Nutrients of coarse is being kindly supplied by Intense Nutrients @Intense Nutrients Matt, I will be using the base nutrients, and some calmag. There will be no additives at all, including microbes etc, as the idea is to show how the plants can grow with the basics. Light source as usual for me will be 100% leds from @diyleduk. So with all that out of the way lets get this show on the the road. I have taken all 5 Ocean Grown Cookie seeds and put them into small pots containing moist coco and will put them in a warm dark place until they surface. Using tap water atm and the background EC is 0.4 to this I added Calmag Agent to reach EC0.6 and PH 5.5.. At a later date I will most likely switch from tap water to rain water from the water butt in the yard. The rain water will go in a res and be sterilized as normal with a little pond UV Sterilizer. The Diary will follow along the same format as usual, more photos, less crap and just relevant information to keep the diary clean and easy to view. That's it for now, have fun everyone this should be a fantastic competition and keep the community on uk420 buzzing. Toke… ps ignore the pencil lines they are from a different project and I need to wipe them off.
  5. Hola and welcome to the water garden (sort of like an adult version of the night garden ) This will be run in RWDC using the intense nutrients line up. I have choosen OGC for the first run of the competition (blue cookies will be the next entry) I put them in for a 24hr soak......all have popped......Onward to the paper towels....we have three bursting to go....two lagging behind I have put the three front runners in the root roit cubes as per usual and given a chance to the laggers (very unlike me) They are in the prop now under a T5......fed a nice glass of plain water about 24 c....I placed them round the edge as the prop is already on for another project and I dont want them too wet at this stage. Now seabiscuits......run for that finishing line
  6. Hello everyone and welcome to my diary for the Dinafem / Intense nutrients competition I was chuffed to bits when I got selected to take part in this contest, but I've been blown away by the generosity of both @Dinafem-Mark and @Intense Nutrients Matt. When the postie delivered me a box i could hardly carry I thought what the hell could this be? I wasn't expecting the range of nutrients that has been supplied so it was like christmas morning when i opened it. Many thanks to you both In a previous Dinafem grow diary I posted a pic of a new groom I've been building in my loft. Mark very kindly offered me seeds to christen it in style. I choose Purps#1 and quick gorilla. When i got accepted to the comp he also sent me some blueberry cookies so Ill be growing the 3 strains. 2 quick gorilla, 1 blueberry cookies and 1 Purps#1. I only hope i can do them justice. Now lets get this show on the road! Propagation I started by soaking some root it sponges in water. Squeezed out any excess then popped the seeds in the hole, covering it up with a piece picked off from the bottom. Labelled them up then into my small prop wrapped in a towel and sat on top of my veg cab for warmth. Fingers crossed they'll all show their heads in the next few days. I will keep them in the veg cab for the next few weeks and then they will be moved up into my new groom in the loft. Im very nearly finished and should hopefully have the equipment installed by next week. Heres how its going if you'd like to have a look. My biggest DIY job to date, In fact I think its worthy of a feature in George Clarkes amazing spaces Thats all for now. Ill be back when they've popped. Best of luck to all taking part
  7. Hullo Lads n Lasses, it's good to be here....massive shout out to @Intense Nutrients Matt @Dinafem-Mark a fantastic opportunity, given....forever grateful guys... Lets kick off with a wee joke, eh? I remember when i first starting using drugs, I was 16 years old. It all started with a spliff, then a bong or two. Before i Knew it I was using amphetamines like speed, but for a stronger buzz i got into ectasy. Well after that it wasn't long before i started on the hard stuff like heroin and cocaine.. I was a complete mess..... My mind and body were broken.... BUT FUCK ME WHAT A NIGHT!!!! Anywayz back to the grow...so here's the lowdown.... 600 watt HPS with sunmaster dual spec bulbs.....(new). 5 inch rhino fan and rhino filter.....(newish, no problems here with rhino filter??). starting off in 2L pots, one pot up to 10/11L pots....in clover compost. U know the nutes and seeds i'll be using guys so lets get it on!! I hatched the total 10 seeds, 5 each. 9 hatched but i broke one taproot during planting, the ham fisted cnut i am....so 8 sprouts i got, one maybe a runt as it was slower than the rest breaking the surface.....In my wee veg cupboard under a 125w envirolight. They will be under that for 2 wks then they go under the big light in my flower cupboard.... So that's the craic so far..... I must admit i was well happy with the last Dinafem stuff iv grown....was blue widow(any excuse to post this bud pic.....It was popular in my circle, we kept it around for a couple of years.....That was around 6-7 years ago.... Tis the best shot i have taken of a plant, i often go back just to ogle it...... I bought a cdc for this grow, but i need a data transfer cable, which is coming soon so i get decent pics of my lovely(hope) flowers.....Ill be doing a tour of the diaries later on or tmrw so I can see how all u guys are getting on....Just take this chance to wish everyone in the comp good luck, may the canna godz look favourably upon us....ATB guys, see u soon.......

  12. Thanks to the generous offer from @Dinafem-Mark to try some Dinafem strains my grown up son asked me to choose these 2. I also have started a dinafem critical cheese I got as a freebie from attitude. I'll also be throwing in an oldtimes just because why wouldn't you run an oldtimes? I'm just finishing up the current lot in the main tent and this lot are just hatching as we speak so I'll try to get some pictures up later. They will be fed once again exclusively on the great coco nutrients from @Intense Nutrients. Here's hoping for some lovely sticky icky and some lovely new flavours.
