  1. having finally booted up my rather antiquated laptop i thought I'd make a rolling diary for my grow space prior to starting my first grow. somewhere underneath two layers of foil lined bubble wrap is a Gorilla Grow Tents Shorty (0.8m wide x 0.6m deep x 1.4m high). Tent was chosen as its one of the very few that will fit the space i have. making the tent coat was a labour of love, all seams are sealed on both sides with silver insulation tape and the inner skin has foil flaps around the intake, outtake and electrical ports. Outer skin would have had them too but i had a rather weighty bifta and the thing was built and in the loft before i realised id forgotten them Outer layer rolls up around an old broom handle and is then held up by the bungee cables around the cross beams, inner layer opens out double door style.. inside is a Medusa Hydroponics Lotus P1 NFT system. this seems to be a pretty new piece of kit but i chose it over the GT205 as it gives me a little extra space within the tent. Lighting is a Scope 220 from our very own @diyleduk Intake is via a 4" semi-passive set up (boosted by an extractor fan built into the room below) and extraction is handled by a 5" Black Orchid Centri-Flo fan with built in speed and temperature control. Squeezed into that 25l brewing bucket is a 5" CarboAir 50 filter to remove any funky odours before the old air is pushed out of the eaves. At the minute I'm just running it empty and keeping an eye on internal and external temps and humidity prior to embarking on my first grow, readings are within reasonable limits and seem pretty stable for now but time will tell.. I've got a few ideas for future grows, first of which will probably be a small water heater to keep res temps up (depending on how they do in the future). I'd love to hear any ideas or recommendations - thanks for reading
  2. 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
  3. I have got a NFT system. It is looks like exactly the GT100 just a bit smaller. It is 90 cm x 90 cm, or 3 'x 3'. It has the same res, tray, feeder bar. I bought an adjustable pump too. I read several topics but i didn't find answers for my questions. 1. Is the spreader mat some kind of geotextil? I have this on a large roll (i think it is 1.5 m x 100 m roll and maybe 1-2 mm thick and white). I assume it is good (it's not chemically treated), isn't it? 2. I read that the mat is good to drop to the res because it eliminates the dripping water sound ( i will use air stones in the res). But how much? Below water line is fine? In this case the mat not will be too wet due the capillary action? 3. I really really hate rockwool. I tried it several times but always failed (salt build up, Ph problems and overwatering). I found an alternative which called easy plug and easy block. The plug is 3,5 cm x 3,5 cm x 3 cm and the block is 7,5 cm x 7,5 cm x 6 cm. It has been made of organic materials like root riot, rapid rooter. It has an 1.0 EC and a steady PH of 6.0. But it's bottom is flat. Can i use this in NFT? I can't see why not the NFT instruction says i can put a well rooted coco or even soil plant onto it. What do you mean? 4. I am very afraid of overwatering on the NFT tray. Should i put something below the cube? Just to raise a bit from the mat. I read several opinion about water pump running time also. Run constantly but adjust the flow. Run on timer. Even one post said in the beginning not use the pump the plant get some moisture due the capillary action of the mat (if it is in the res). Can you give me some solid advice? I don't want to fail just in the beginning
  4. Hi All. I was hoping for some advice on changing from an NFT system to a DWC recirculating system. I am currently running a sog on 2 NFT 604's under a 600w light, however the space I am using has limited height at around 5ft alought around 3x3m floor space. Because I have limited height I am running around 10 plants in each tray that are switched to flowering when around 8 inches tall and i'm currently averaging around 14g per plant finishing at 8 weeks flowing. I have been considering changing to a DWC recirculating system as I would then be able to grow from seed instead of clones and be able to change the strain regularly and cut down on the number of plants I have running. I would be looking to build a 6 pot recirculating system myself but I am unsure if I will have enough height for them yield the same as I am currently getting off the NFT (Would need to get around 2oz per plant) the plants could get to around 3.5ft before any light burn. I can spread the system out and even bring in another 600w however I still would like it to be turned around in 9 weeks, I can veg them elsewhere for a few weeks before going into flower however I wouldn't have the time to do a scrog as once i have them vegged they go into the flowering room and I run it perpetually. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!
  5. Ok I've been having problems with the ph rising out of range overnight I'm in a nft 604 tank with 8 clones Everything was going swet untill a week ago..thd oh started rising out of range overnight from 5.8 to 6.5 I would correct it and the same would happen the next day before this I would set the ec at 1 and it would fall through the week untill about 0.4 then a tank change when the ph problems started i increased the e.c.to 1.5 thinking the e.c was too low There's been no improvement and the plant are looking sick curling leaves and a slight yellowing I've dropped the e.c and gave them a flush over night but the same is happening Can any body help ? !
  6. HSO Black D.O.G @ The House of Freax I thought it fitting to start this diary with one of my alltime favourite tunes, Black Dog by the mighty Led Zeppelin. So ive just popped 3 BDOG beans into some Root Riot cubes First up is a huge thank you to @HSO-Mark and all the guys at the office who made this grow possible by supplying me with some very nicely packaged HSO beans. So i decided to get these in now ready to take the place of my Dinafem girls that are in the tent at the moment. I moistened the top of the cubes with a small drizzle of warm water and shook off the excess before putting the seeds into the cubes. As soon as they show themselves they will be put into the Aerogarden for a few days to help bring on the roots before i put them into 4 inch cubes ready to be put onto the NFT tray when they have developed enough of a root system to get them started properly. Ill be using Ionic nutes and additives throughout the grow as usual. Just gotta wait till they pop their heads up now and then i can carry on with this diary. Cheers for looking in. To be continued.......... Freax
  7. Hey people im on my first NFT Grow using the 60 litre tank indoor grow room 8" Extractor 18" Movement Fan 600W HPS Nutes - Shogun Hydro Bloom A&B using around 1-2 ml per litre also Silver Bullet added for the roots using 20ml per water change PH is always around 5.8-6.2 EC 1.2 on bluelab truncheon Tank Temp stays at around 21-22 light off/on Water change every 7 days Growing 3 Critical Kush (plants and buds look mean and only just over 3 weeks into flower) Hey people ive been away for 4 days ive come back an noticed my PH had raised up to around 6.8 which being as no one is around to keep an eye on them im guessing standard plus they are due a water change later. Now i've noticed my leaves are getting a weird pattern im guessing Mag Def? I have cal mag here im wondering if i can use this an at what dose when doing a change. As said this is my first grow so im still getting my numbers dialed in
