  1. Hi all, I'm going to screen of green my 9 plants in my 1.5 x 1.5 x 2.0. I usually lollypop from early stages of veg, and leave the last week or two into new pots then basic scrog method for even distribution. However, I think I haven't been creating the best method for yield. I think I need to utilize the scrog method better. I have the plants in small pots currently. My plan was to create 4 cola, then use each of the 9 segments (500 x 500) to then position a cola equally. Then moving whichever tallest cola into the available location. My trouble is to predict at which point I should be moving them into the larger tent, re-potting etc. I don't want to trim any nodes either too late, as I know that limits growth. Does anyone have any guidance on when to time creating the screen etc, so I don't leave them too long or change the flower cycle too early.

  6. Hey All, I'm planning on trying some autogrows this year in a small-ish wooden growhouse, maybe double the depth one of those pop-up green plastic things which I'm going to try and squeeze six, 10 litre poly pots in (pots will fit snugly side-by-side) I have some anxiety that I want a natural way of fixing so will be growing feminised autoflower CBD heavy (I hope) strains. Initially I did very little research and was a bit over-enthusiastic about purchasing seed, which isn't unusual with me and seeds… I got some ShortStuff fem'd Blue Himalaya (came with a couple fem Auto-Assassin and a Dr. Feelgood) and have since added some SweetSeeds fem'd Sweet Nurse Auto CBD which are on the way. I'm planning on two grows, first will be started in May directly in their pots in their final and only growing position if weather permits and will start with the Sweet Nurse first (will probably chuck in the two Auto-Assassins at the back so I won't be putting all my eggs in one basket which will probably be for someone else as they are sativa dominant) I have limited head height after taking the pots into account, if allowed to grow to their maximum, they'll stick out of the top, I've read that you can't always completely rely on what it says on the tin too so I'm planning on doing a low-fi LST to restrict the height a bit, I would like to try and confine them to their own pot diameter as they'll be a tight fit with their neighbours. Will Start the second batch late June to first quarter of July depending on how the first batch is looking, I have another space that should be free by then so they'll be able to sit there for a couple of weeks while the first batch finishes, and if the wait is too long, can be modified to be their forever home. I'm going to use an enviromesh clone to keep out the bugs, it allows in 75% of the air and 90% of the light but will give it an opaque look when I need to open all the doors and lid at peak summer so should help with neighbours glancing over. The medium I'm planning on using is a 35 litres of filtered-stream-peat based multi-purpose compost, 20 litres worm castings and 5 litres of either vermiculite or perlite, with organic feeds later in the grow if necessary. Is an LST grow confined to it's own pot unrealistic? The front row (or back) can be trained slightly forward allowing more space for the both rows as I have little bit of depth to play with. Could I train the front three low and back three slightly higher with LST to maximise light for back row? I've trained grapes, fruit trees toms and other assorted vines and plants in the past and will again but am I mad wanting to train with LST outdoors at all on my first real grow? Advice and questions are welcome Thanks a bunch, spent many hours browsing the site already (haven't visited the site in a very long time) Pariah. Lat 51
  7. Hello fellow growers! Here I am Agen with another diary of mine , this will be my 2nd diary and my 4 ever grow! Here I haven 3 DP - auto Colorado cookies , I have one in 8lt pot (might put this one in the garden ) and two in 15 Lt pots that's getting trained. Today is week 3! I've skipped a few as I've been tied up with stuff and they ain't much to look at eaither that young I've started them off under a GN ms0006 led untill tonight where I'll put them under the hps 600w! No perlite has been used just pure soil , Nutes I'm using are plant magic OT grow and bloom with root stim from start. Feed atm is 0.5 grow 2ml root stim Per liter of tap water left for 24 hours 15lt pot 6lts of water gives a good 20% run off. 8lt pot 3-4lts gives this a good run off also which had never stuffed me up . Here they are , just started to pop very tiny pistilis today ,been bent over and tied down also! Thanks for looking atb growers!
  8. Charlotte's Angel (Photoperiod)

    From the album 2018 - Lowryder auto, CBD White Domina, Charlottes Angel (photo/auto)

    Soooo, Here's my Charlotte's Angel photoperiod plant. She's feminised and has been a right fussy girl. I started with very minimal nutes, the lowest recommended by biobizz and there was nutrient burn almost immediately and the leaves were lime green for a long time. I decided to flush her completely just to be sure and then no nutes for a good two weeks after that. After doing some reading on low stress training I started tying her down and training. Unfortunately I was a bit heavy handed and snapped the stem a bit :/ . Luckily with some bamboo and rubber band surgery, she was back in the game. A knuckle appeared at the snap site and she's been fine since. I didn't realise that this was 'supper cropping' , it just happened by accident. I think she's probably around 6 or 7 weeks old now maybe. The side shoots are growing up fast. I've been trimming or tucking the fan leaves when they've been covering anything. I think this plant would be around a foot and a half tall vertical. I'm considering cloning when she gets a bit bigger but I've stressed her plenty so far so not quite yet! Bags.
  9. Hello...On me 3rd grow. The 2 previous I topped once, this time I topped twice then on the second topping I topped the side branches. I've got a scrog net made that can go on when it gets a bit bigger but can't decoide if to use that or to do mebs some more training to spread them out then let em go for it 38 days above ground today. How would you go on from here? The diary is here Cheers
  10. Hi Guys. I'm completely new at growing my own & have made some silly mistakes as I shall show later on. but right now my major problem is the height of my four plants which are NOT autos, in a 2ft x 2ft x 8ft high grow tent. The plants from the bottom of the pots are over 5ft high. Now that poses the problem that my lights (1 x 300W Hps) (1 x 300W LED from Mars Hydro) are too close to the top of my plants......Much too close. Now I know about trimming and FIM which must be done at earlier stages in the plants life but I learnt this info too late. I have also run out of space! The plants are drop dead healthy but I only kicked them into flowering mode 1 week ago. I now have about 8 inches from the top of my HPS light and the LED is raised higher and is about one and a half feet from the tops of the plants. The real question is should I simply trim the plants down from their main stem or should I just scrap two of the four plants and scrog/bend the other two as much as I can at this late stage? I do need some help and it will be very much appreciated I can assure you. My two remaining options are to scrap two of them or leave them somewhere and hope they are rescued by someone who can grow them out. Thank you for listening guys, And believe me, any help will be good. Respect............. Cmoon
  11. Hi all, I'm about to start my first grow and I got some seeds of Sweet Nurse Auto CBD (5-10% THC/10-15% CBD). I found this lovely time lapse on youtube that rose some questions. (The uploader seemed to left the plants alone with no topping and/or LST. Also the website where I got the seeds from states harvest 8 weeks from germination) Am I wrong saying that this strain needs no topping, LSTing or scrogging? You just put the seed and let it grow? (or, due to the fast flower/harvest, when would it be the best time to top/lLST?) Also, as it's an auto strain there's really no need to change the light cycle right? So, in theory, it could stay in the same tent with slower growing strains which would be still in veg (18/6 light cycle) while it already flowers? Finally, last but not least, I'd like to go as "organic" as possible, avoiding chemical nutes (even because they require flushing and water is kind of an issue on the island where I leave). I do make my own compost (coffee ground, tea leaves, egg shells and all the veg waste from salad, greens, fruit etc...), would you use it when potting? What else you suggest to use as an aid?
  12. Hi all, This is my first post and my first grow, and I'm looking for some advice on how to proceed with my plant. Thought I'd start of with some general information about the grow: Strain - No Idea (Had a few seeds in my grinder compartment and raffled ^_^) Grow Medium - Soil Grow Environment - Being a broke man's grow, there is no tent. The pots are just sat in my room Lighting - 1 300w "full-spectrum" LED Nutrients - Green Future Organic Tomato Fertiliser 4-1-2 Water - Volvic (Approx 7 Ph) Other Stuff - No humidity sensor/regulator, No Ph control/testing kit So I started on a 24-0 schedule after doing some reading and finding out that bud doesn't actually need a "rest period" to perform well; however after a few weeks of vegging and more reading I decided to swap the schedule to 18-6 because I noticed she wasn't as tall as I was expecting (this could be down to the strain, but the additional reading I did mentioned that the down time gives the plant some time to stretch so I thought I'd give that a go). She's gonna be 7 weeks old tomorrow (from seed), I've done some LSTing and some very light defoliation so far and feel like she should be ready to flower now, but what I'm seeing is telling a different story. To improve the spread of light, I've also been using pieces of cardboard wrapped in foil that act like mirrors and reflect the light to the underside of the plant. I've included some pictures below: So my main questions are these: Will I get a decent yield if I put her into flower now? Should I do some more defoliation and if so where should I focus? Does mirroring the light reduce the plant's height? (I.e, does the reflected light make the plant reach less because there is another source closer than the main light?) What is the cheapest way to feed your plants during flowering? Thanks in advance!

  16. Hey everyone well a big thanks to @Sweet Seeds -Jaypp & @Sweet Seeds-tommy for letting me join in the fun so late..... theres some stiff competition here as well as some very good people in this competition ! I wish everyone the best of luck. just put my seeds in a glass of water for germination (a method I always use and never seems to fail me. ) I will be growing one of each of the above strains and I picked them for various reasons..... cotton candy auto - because is sounds absolutely delicious and yields well, dark devil auto - because I've heard great reviews on this strain and I'm really attracted to the colour like a bumble bee sweet nurse auto cbd - I don't know a lot about this strain and have no idea what to expect due to lack of detailing about it but I guess it will be great and I picked this for its cbd goodness, i will be growing all plants in coco under led and will be using canna coco A&B, Canna PK 13/14 and density calmag pro in root nurse fabric pots, Alls I have to do now is set the other tent up for when there ready for potting as one of my tents is currently in use. Below are the pictures of the items kindly donated by the sweet seeds team and I will get further pics up of inside the tent once set up and potted. glad to have you all along for the ride MGSM

    As I was at the arse end of a bad day with pain I decided to try and relax a bit with some delicate tweaking and pruning after which Bangers ended up with a short back and sides!
