  1. Hi everyone, first post on the forums spent alot of time here last month or so planning my grow! I have done some averagely bad grows in the past but have learnt massively where some of my problems were and now I want to make some decent quality buds with a reasonable yield so investing properly and taking the time and care to do things properly this time My last real stumbling block of the whole operation before I set up my pile of equipment sat in the corner is to get my head around soils and nutes. I know there are hundreds of posts out there but none seem to quite answer my questions and masses of reading has led me over numerous different answers which I know could all work depending on strains and grow methods but its really hard to find specific information with background on the whole grow at setup etc! So to the point: 1) Canna Terra or Canna Coco which would you recommend for auto flowers in a non hydro setup? Using 400w HPS in a 0.7x0.7x2m tent so water retention is important, I intent to mix 30% of perlite in. 2) Think of using RQS easy boost in the soil mix and light dosage of easy grow/bloom over the grow, in distilled water, is this overkill on nutrients for an auto flower? 3) Do you use distilled or tap water (i live in very hard water area) for flushing the plant before harvest? For general information: As mentioned growing under 400w HPS in a small but tall tent so got some space! 2 inline RVK's for intake and exhaust going straight to fresh air through the roof and under the eve, on the side of the house that barely see's sun all year around. Running Rhino Pro Carbon filter in the tent. Will be growing a pair, maybe 3 will see once its all setup RQS Auto Northern Lights in 12L pots. I probably won't be doing any LST just to make the plants grow straight up so can fit multiples in the tent. So excited to get my babies on the go but want to make sure I am clued up before making mistakes, so really appreciate any help anyone is willing to give!
  2. Hi every one, hope you are all in rude health! I have a question regarding the water curing of my buds. Briefly: I grew 3 plants (Northern Lights Auto) in canna-coco. The first and second plants were water cured for 7 days with constantly running RO water (water enters bottom of 10 litre barrell & exits the top so making sure the overflow gets rid of the unwanted water). I thought I would cure the third plant in the time old tradition of hanging in the wardrobe. Now though it is shall we say "in the way". So my qusestion is: Can I change after 1 week from air curing to water curing? Would it harm my trichomes? I know technically it shoudn't as Trichs are oil and wont be mixing with the water. I don't/can't smoke so I make something like RSO so I'm not bothered about the taste at all. Cheers for now. Cmoon I also want to ask you guys what kind of a hit should you get when ingesting super skunk oil?..................More later, my wife will explain better than I.
  3. Hi folks, My seedlings are now 2 weeks old and look a bit too droopy to me, it's my first grow & I'd rather try and fix any problems before it gets too late. I'd been running 18/6 on the lights, 600w hps 18" away, temps were getting a bit too hot so I switched down to 400w on the ballast a couple of days ago. Initially I had to keep the lights much further away (hence the stretch) as my temps were wild until I got my ventilation set up better. The pots have biobizz mix in them & I'm wondering if I should repot yet or leave them as is for a while longer, these were the pots the seeds went into straight after first germinating in on paper towels. Any and all advice welcome!
  4. Hi Guys! This is my first grow, thought I'd start a topic for people's advice and to keep up with the progress. Seeds are:- 1x Royal Queen Seeds Amnesia Haze 1x Royal Queen Seeds Northern Lights 1x Flash Seeds Lemon Haze 1x Flash Seeds Bubble Hash x Muay Thai So I've got a 80x80x160 grow tent, 4" fan and filter set up with a 250w HPS light(for now) Using 8L root nurse pots with bio bizz light mix soil will be using bio bizz root juice, fish mix, grow and bloom. Have got top max too but not read good things, does anybody use it? Also anyone know anything about the bubble hash muay thai strain? Was a freebie and I'm intrigued! Just potted the seeds and covered with cling film with a temp of 27c and 45% humidity. Any tips at this stage other than patience? Haha

  10. Over the last year or so I've spent a lot of time digging around the forums researching different strains and seed banks and put together this 'wish list' of stable and well rated seeds... ​ Cheese is my favourite smoke but is very easy to get hold of so I'll order a UGROG Collectors Pack to keep aside for when that time comes. For now I thought I would stick to feminized seeds to keep it simple as I'm still trying to master the basics. Any feedback is appreciated! Amnesia Lemon - Barney's Farm Finishing up now, heard bad things about barney's but am really impressed so far! (250w HPS) CheeseWreck - Seedism BLZ Bud - Seedism LSD - Barney's Farm Northern Lights #5 x Haze - Sensi Skywalker OG Kush - Reserva Privada Blue Dream - Humboldt Grapegod - Next Generation Ghost Train Haze #1 - Rare Dankness Sensi Star - Paradise Caramello - Delicious Original Strawberry Cough - Dinafem Has anyone had any experience with any of these strains? Let me know!

  17. Hey people. I have been reading on this site for a while and based on some of the really impressive organic grows I have seen here I decided to give it a go! Unfortunately, I am already running into some issues and really need the help of some more knowledgeable people which is why I am here! Hopefully as I educate myself Id try help out also. I have started some Sensi Seeds Northern lights in some miracle grow seedling mix and im 22 days in but seem to be having some nutrient issues. I am seeing what I consider slow growth and discoloring of leaves which begins with either small white dots or small rust colored dots. Pics attached. I have been giving them Plant magic Old timer grow, super-thrive and plant magic evolution (2 doses a week apart) and have been Phing the water (UK tap water left out for 24 hours) with lemon juice to 6.3-6.5. I gave one watering of Organic Cal-Mag and some molasses but even with this and PM evolution the leaves have got worse. Im quite confused as PM old timer is supposed to work well with UK water and supposed to be good as a stand alone product but even Phing im getting quite severe issues. I have just moved them into larger containers with soil supreme yesterday but I am very worried about the state of them and its a little heart breaking tbh. If anybody could advise me on what the problem could be or any extra steps to take it would be greatly appreciated!
  18. Hello This is a diary of my second grow. My first grow went horribly wrong. I was using a hydroponic system and made a simple but deadly mistake of not checking that the water was running through well so it built up and blooded the root area of the tank causing root rot. Now im trying soil and wow, what a difference in the work load! I started her roughly two weeks behind the hydro so because i was so busy trying to cure the other I havent been documenting this current grow until now, she is on day 25 and yesterday i spotted some beginnings of flowering. My set up is 100x100 grow tent with carbon filter, in/out fans and a 400W HPS bulb. Controlling the temperature has been a bit of a challenge as my house is quite warm anyway and inside the tent is sitting around 29-31*c which iv been trying to bring down, i have been keeping a close eye on how the plant is coping and i think i have spotted some signs of heat stress? I have been foliar feeding her the last two days after being advised to do so from a more experienced grower with a formulation of water (PH 6.5) and Formulex (EC 0.9/1.0) iv been told to give her a misting everyday. From the pictures above does it look like this damage is from the heat or from the foliar feeding? Just wanted to check im on the right track after the last disaster and im open to any advice that use guys could give to an inexperienced grower
  19. Got me some of these yesterday. Planted 'em today. Not sure if anyone on this site has done a full grow with these yet - think they are quite new. Anyone had any experience? Hoping for a nice easy version of an old-skool classic. My first ever grow was some NLs from cutting !!
