  1. hello again. well, after what seems like a fucking age and a half researching i've cobbled together the following. 1m x 1m x 2m greenqube tent. 6" systemair RVK fan blowing out. 5" systemair RVK fan blowing in. carboair 330 filter. variac 320w QB invisible sun samsung 3000k light. 2ft 4 tube T5 6500k light. gotta get a oscillating fan, don't know if i need two of 'em. i did have fancy hi-falutin' plans on doing my first grow hydroponically but the chap in the shop reckoned to go with soil first time round at least, and from what i've read here, that piece of advice has been much repeated to many others like myself just starting out in this lark. so, from what i can make out, given the size of my tent 4 plants would be ok. i recall the growshop man saying that final container size should be 11 litres. also he mentioned something about getting the plants to 12 inches tall and then flipping them over to flower. oh, and using some of those clay pebbles at the bottom of the fabric pots. i'm due to pop back to the shop tomorrow get anything i might be missing and of course pick up the growing medium and seeds. would it be possible to scrog 4 plants? or is that missing the point of scroging somewhat? regarding seeds i'm guessing that getting feminised photo seeds is what i'm after? and i'd greatly appreciate it if someone could furnished me with a link to a suitable grow diary. thanks again. sorry if all this is a bit garbled, i get flummoxed using a keyboard.
  2. So after a few grows using RQS I decided that I would give Dinafem a go, I'm just finishing a grow that was supposed to be all RQS but due to a couple of dodgy seeds not sprouting, I bought 2 Dinafem seeds (only one grew though, maybe my fault) but the one that did has really impressed me. (2 weeks behind the RQS and the biggest plant) Grow diary here... Anyway, I have bought 4 more seeds and plan on getting these going once the current grow has finished. The seeds are... 1x Critical + 2.0 Autoflowering 1x Haze 2.0 Autoflowering 1x Blue Critical Autoflowering 1x Original Amnesia Autoflowering Set up... Old kids wardrobe (insulated and made slightly bigger) Kingbo 300w led (120w real wattage) Topplanet 300w led (120w real wattage) (Surprised how well these 2 lights have done considering they are cheapies) 2 X modified ceiling led panel lights (4000k) 80 watts Ram mixed flow extraction Rhino 4" filter 2x 4" usb fans Heat mat 600mm X 600mm Fabric pots Soil will be a mixture of pre used (once) canna soil mix / home made compost/perlite / Coco coir. Various canna / biobizz fertilizers. Pic from current grow...it's a bit rag tag but does the job... Hoping the current grow will be finished in the next couple weeks, will get onto these then. ... Watch this space...
  3. Dinafem kindly sent me some orange juice to grow out .. They will be started in canna prof coco and watered in using Biosys and nitrozyme at ph 6. They are then placed on top of wet clay balls in a heated prop with no lid ..I now have a small veg tent 70x50x90 , for vegative growth I use a Zeus board using lm301b Samsung Diyleduk offers similar specs for similar money now , the flowering will be under a Diyleduk custom unit aka scope350 irc.. Three seeds popped in for this round leaving two for another run ... Orange Juice... Thats it for now till next time take it easy......
  4. I have been lucky enough to be gifted some seeds to do a diary here , cheers .. I was given two Blueberry cheesecake , sexbud and c99 , I thought I try the Blueberry cheesecake as we all like cake ... I prepped canna prof coco with charge and watered in using Biosys and Nitrozyme at a ph 6 .. They are in a small tent , 70x50x90 under a Zeus lm301b Samsung board , when bigger they go under the Diyleduk unit ...the Zeus will be set at 60w first when they show 3500k ..The new veg tent seems ok so far , five inch rvk on a varic.. Thats it for now till next time take it easy ......

  11. Hello All This Is My Budget Set Up: 80 x 80 x 160 tent 6 liter pots Mother Earth Multi Purpose Compost single QB132 Board running at 70w (18 inches from top of plants) the first 2 weeks they were under a cheap ching chong light carbon filter 3 x fan 2 x seeds are royal dwarf from RQS my plants are 34 days from popping out the soil whole setup pulls 106w from the wall so is about £2.80 a week to run I've only been feeding water from the tap (wet & dry cycle) light cycle is full blast 24 h could someone please tell me what the light green tips mean on some of the leaves?...……….thanks
  12. with my loft tent set up and ready to grow its about time I started my first diary Around the 1st May i dropped my Dinafem Critical Mass CBD seed into water and popped it into a mini heated propagator. 24h later and it'd cracked and the tap root was starting to emerge so i placed it carefully into a rootit sponge and placed the lot into my temporary veg cabinet. she had some difficulties throwing her shell off so after a day or two i eased it off and left her to get on with things - unfortunately i hadn't noticed that a bit of shell pith was still clinging on and this prevented the cotyledons from properly opening for another day or two before i worked up the courage to cut them free with a razor blade now 5 days from germination shes starting to spread her wings a bit - shes not coming on as quick as I'd have liked but i suspect i may have left her in the closed heated prop for a little too long, plus the closed cupboard with no ventilation is hardly a perfect environment - will definitely have to have to work out something better for next time plan is to let her settle into the rootit sponge, then once she's happy move her into a 4" rockwool cube and hand water for a bit before dropping her in the NFT tray... super excited (and a little nervous) to finally have my first grow on the go - looking forward to some home grown weed in T minus 12-16 weeks and counting

    week 2 flower just had a go at lollipoping !!!! and SCROGED as you can see. I think I have done this way too late, from what I can see it should have been done during veg.

  15. Good morning to you all. 3 1/2 weeks into my Fast Buds grow - 2 x Blue Dream'matic & 2 Mexican Airlines. Gorilla Shorty Tent 3 x 3 x 5.8 Grow Northern Telos 0008 [Supplementary GN HS1 + HLG 100 QB should either or both be required at flowering stage.] Phresh 6" Hyperfan + CarboAir 50 carbon filter. Soil grow with 70/30 mix of Biobizz All Mix & Biobizz Light Mix. [15l Root Pouches] Ecothrive Charge & Biosys -[Will add Biobizz Bloom or Molasses once flowering commences.] At day 26 with all the plants - due to my daft decision to grow 4 in a small space I've experimented with fimming on 1 and topping on another - all 4 have had some defoliation in order to open up the budsites. Will keep you posted on a regular basis. Any advice most welcome. Ciao 4 now, Harry
  16. 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?

  21. Hi all. I've been absent from the site for some time, and I'm glad to be back, but even happier to see a few growers have made the switch to Quantum Boards. A few of you may remember I have been banging on about giving them a go for many many moons, but the same one single concern has always steered me away from them... Bud density. I have had several chances to get them in from overseas over the last 2 years give or take, money wasn't ever the issue and I trust the tech 100%, I have always stood by they're ability to grow good Cannabis. But every time I get to that point of finally hanging up my HID I bottle it because I have convinced myself they wont give me the same density and to some extent maturity as my HID do. There is a reason I always come back to this. A good friend tried some early COB tech some years back now, using his regular clones he grew out the same plants the same way he always does just with these new lights. Although he got an admirable yield the buds were loose and airy and almost under matured compared to his normal finished buds. Now I have somewhat of a "Thing" about bud density, I always aim for tight buds in strain selection and tend to pick strains that can give me that via genetics as well as using good lighting and feed, so I think these two factors have embedded some kind of fear into me about using QB's. I know to some that may sound ignorant as so many folks are using them now that this alone should be enough to talk me round. I have bugged to death a few folks here at UK420 that grow with them and even last year when I was an inch away from making the jump I still bottled it. Now fast forward to my current position, I'm indoors instead of outdoors in a cool garage, have now got a P.A.Y.G meter instead of monthly bills, and my grow area is slightly smaller. Add in it looks like I can now get QB's in the UK and I may finally have to make the switch. I'm not kidding my current lighting setup EATS electric. I just wondered if any growers using Quantum Boards atm could help me get past this and if anyone had some pics of buds grown under QB? Huge thanks in advance for any help. Cheers. GV.

    Mounted Drivers outside the room so could manage any issues with ease. Should have gone for the 'B' version of the driver with an external potentiometer. but on the 'A's" you can control the wattage and current separately.
