  1. Welcome to my next foray into LED growing and living soil. I grow in a Budbox 160x75x75 with a @diyleduk Scope 220 V1 and have a 100l pot of living soil with blumat drippers to keep the moisture levels in check. I use a AC Cloudline T4 fan connected to a Mountain Air 4” Filter for extraction and passive intake. I also have some Buddies that diyleduk kindly sent to me to try out but I am struggling to install them in a way where I can have the driver outside the tent hmmmmmm This diary will cover my adventures in crossing a Psychosis bx2 male with a Psychosis bx2 female and three Smile females within my pot of living soil. I dont intend to seed the whole grow just a branch of each plant, I am in no way an experienced breeder just a pollen chucker that would like to see what results I get. Also being my last seeds of these strains I hope to preserve them in some way. I started this grow a while ago and planted my last 3 Smile seeds from @oldtimer1 and my last 3 Psychosis bx2 from @ratdog . I hit lucky and got 3 Smile females and 2 PsBx femails and a male. The best looking PSBX female the male and the three Smile females got cuts taken whilst I finished up my last grow and the seed plants were disposed of. The female cuts are now in the pot and have been for the last week, they are just starting to find there feet and have greened up as they were held back in small pots. I have started to flower the male in my small 90x0x60 veg tent under a 65w @diyleduk veg board it’s 5 days in flower in a 3 l pot of plagron batmix and will be fed just fishmix . So here are some pics to bring us up to date..... They are the cuts I took and now they are in the living soil pot..... This is the boy I got with some double serrations going on and his balls that are developing So that’s where we are at at the moment, I have made sure that the pot is well watered and the bottom of the pot is damp to the touch as @icki keeps hinting that this is what should be happening. I also have made some hash recently for my “rainy day” stash so would like to share that with you too.... From right to left is Sift, Bubble and some hash I picked up last December. That’s it for now folks. Hope you enjoy the ride!! peace lil d.

  8. Hello all, This is my diary for the foreseeable, I am in a 75x75x160 budbox with a 112l fabric pot filled with about 100l of ecolife soil from indoor organics. This is the second run in this pot and have amended with neem meal, MBP, life cycle all watered in with biosys. I have also planted some crimson clover as a cover crop. Above the plants is a dimmable scope 220, I have a mountain air with a 4” ruck and passive vents for intake. Water is being delivered by blumat drippers fed from a 47l tank sat outside the tent with an air stone in. Not currently using the full capacity of the tank but handy if I want to go away at any point. Plants are 2 x Serious seeds AK47 and 1 x macf1 x zkittzo subbies by @buddy13 All plants are cuts I took about 3weeks ago and have binned the seed plants. Pics. Day 1 veg all the best folks peace. lil d.

  18. Here's a little update from my post http://www.uk420.com/boards/index.php?/topic/403784-building-a-100-gallon-living-soil-bed/#comment-5265474 from last month. I mixed everything in which took a good few hours. Added a couple of inches of mulch collected from local woodland and watered in. A little doubt crept in at this point as I started seeing things crawling around the surface and I wondered exactly what creatures I was introducing. Removed a few snails and slugs, some kind of moth or beetle larvae, a stink bug and a giant bumble bee that flew out and made me jump in surprise. I then realised that I had forgotten to sow the cover crop seeds (clover, yarrow, basil, Thai basil and borage) so I just added them to the top of the mulch layer before adding straw and hoped they would still germinate ok. I had planned to let the soil sit for a few days but I was a little concerned that my vegging plants weren't doing too well in their small pots. I had a little vape to ponder over this and on impulse I decided to add them to the pot immediately. As this was my first time using such a massive bed, I accidentally watered a little too much in the first ten days as I was concerned the top was drying out. (I am definitely getting Blumats for the next round) I think I have the hand watering dialled in now though. I'm using a moisture meter and watering every 4-5 days when it's showing about 15% moisture. Saw a few comments saying the meters should be chucked in the bin as they are useless but the readings seem consistent and enable me to check moisture without disturbing the soil. Three weeks later and I've taken a few clones of each plant and started a gradual flip which will be complete in 2 days ( -1 hour each day) Just taken this photo and as you can see they are going crazy. Having to do daily LST as the growth is so vigorous but I'm pleased with the way the canopy has spread out. All leaves looking very healthy! (sorry about the shitty orangey light from the HPS) Was thinking of trying a SCROG net for the first time but I'm worried the Strawberry lemonade (top left) would take over and the Do-Si-Dos (bottom left) would get dwarfed. Not much of the cover crop showing apart from a load of grass from the barley straw. A lot of the seeds germinated and stretched out loads but now seem to have vanished. Not too worried though as there is plenty of nitrogen in all the worm castings. There's not much going on in the mulch layer yet but I expect it will take a month or two for the worms and other beneficials to settle in and start doing their thing. Will be adding the first lot of amendments later today. I had planned on using nettle and horsetail but there's nowt available this time of year unfortunately. Very pleased with things so far but the next few weeks are unchartered territory for me. Will post another update once flowering is established.

  20. Hello, Happy Xmas Ive always wanted to have a go at setting up irrigation! It seems like a great idea, saving time and if done well, improving quality. What are the favourite options out there? Ive only heard of blumats before which i am keen to try I have a 250 Litre water butt and am hoping to set up a basic beginner irrigation system with it. Struggling to get my head round the concept, what kind of system do i need to set up? Im growing with 15 Gallon pots of living soil - contains worms (so i cant let get too dry), seaweed, garden compost etc 15gal is quite big so they need a decent amount of water - my first question is how many 15 gallon pots can a 250 litre water butt supply water to? People say hand watered is best, but ive also heard that blumat watering systems can be even better, ideally I am hoping to set up a Blumat watering system with a couple of moisture sensor carrots in each pot or something along those lines At this point im considering all options so a basic cheap and easy option may win me over, but if someone can advise on a blumat or 'moisture sensor' setup, i think that could be a very good option also Any help with would be greatly appreciated!
