  5. Hi all! Apologies if this is in wrong section. Prior to joining this forum I had settled on doing an auto grow as a first time grower. I found a grow on YouTube and decided to follow their compost mix. This is what I purchased: Biobizz × 1 Frass × 1 2L Malted Barley Powder × 1 2L Wormcasts × 1 2L Grow AUTO × 1 2L Bloom AUTO × 1 2L Neem × 1 2L Rockdust × 1 800ml MycoBoost × 1 800ml After some advice from some great folks on this forum, I’ve decided to go with a reg grow for the first time. I’m wondering if I can still use the Grow Auto and Bloom Auto mixes. Their ingredients are: Grow Auto: EM1 Infused bokashi bran, Volcanic rockdust, Mycorrhizal fungi, Northern Atlantic Kelp meal, organic Bat Guano, Alfalfa meal, Wheat bran. Bloom Auto: Organic Bat guano, Northern Atlantic kelp meal, sterilised bone meal, mined sulphate of potash, Dolomite Lime, Diatomaceous earth. All advice welcome! Thanks everyone!
  6. Hey folks.. well I have been looking to source some root stim and noticed canna now do a bio Rhizotonic.. anyone used this and what are your thoughts?? Im not sure what the diff is.. this is marketed for the organic gardener however from my understanding the normal Rhizotonic is already 100% natural so what's the difference here? Seems to sell slightly cheaper too for some reason. Any info folks
  7. Hi all. I see that Homebase is now selling an organic, peat-free compost by Supagrow. I was just wondering if antibody had tried it yet?
  8. I just want to be clear with the title, hence the ultimatum, and really, I live chemical free, so if there is no awesome way to use hydroponics naturally, then i am sticking with soil, I still cling to the hope that there might be a good way, that's why i posted this, can it be done?
  9. I've got a small one plant grow going at the moment. It's about week 6/7 in flower and fading out fast, absurdly fast. It's in a 6litre pot using garden centre soil amended with GK Organic fertiliser. It's been fighting a nutrient deficiency since week 4 of the grow despite following the feeding instructions on the GK fertiliser packaging and website. (50ml of ferts mixed in to 6litres of soil, top dressed with 150ml at the first sing of nitrogen deficiency, to no avail). I don't really know why it didn't work out for me? PH was bang on 6.2-6.5, air temps were 26-28 degrees, roots were kept warm, humidity was 40-50% for flower and higher for veg. All enviornemtal factors were ticked. No lockout (as far as im aware) should have occurred. So why didn't the GK ferts do their thing? I switched back to my Plagron bottled nutrients in a bid to save her, which worked for a while, but the nutrient depletion seemingly can't be stopped. I really want to switch to organics, but this first attempt is a bit of a disaster. I see some people on here use GK, others use Ecothrive. My local grow shop sells eco thrive. Considering switching as more members here seem to be using it with good results. My plan at the moment is to get some Ecothrive Charge (which they have in stock locally), a bottle of bio fizz fish mix, and some worm castings for my next run. Or am i just using all of it wrong and should figure out the bag of GK i have first?
  10. Hi would this combo of tropic mix with organix grow/bloom work well or will the coco throw a spanner in. Sorry if its the wrong board for this. Thanks!
  11. So the 2021 season is now upon us, and the time has come for us gorillas to get at 1 with nature and do what we do best... so let's do this... Big thanks to @panik for inviting me into the RGSC outdoor competition and also for all the hard work put into creating these vars for guys like me to grow. First time in a comp for me so I will do my very best to do these beans justice and hopefully grow some beautiful plants that make my fellow guerrillas proud. Good luck to all and everyone entering the comp, I look forward to reading all your diarys and sharing your experiences as the season moves on.. exciting times guys and girls So the vars I will be running in this diary are as follows.. Affiedaze Purple freeze bx1 Fast zkittles Opg x freezeland The plan for these is to grow them out on my main plot, the plot is pretty established now after a few seasons and always seems to produce big fuk off trees as opposed to plants so this should be interesting.. All my plants will be grown and fed organically and watered from the nearby brook if and when needed. Germination will take place in the next week or so as temps are still very low for this time of year. I want to give these beans the best possible chance of rewarding me to there full potential so feel this to be the correct approach to take. I will be documenting everything i do in growing these girls out including pics from start to finish of there progress. I welcome all advice from anyone who wants to give it as we will never stop learning in this game.. questions will always be answered so feel free to reach out if there is anything you want to no that hasn't been explained. I just wanted to get this going so will be updating in due course once I got some beans wet.. anyone interested in the finer details I have another diary running that will be getting updated regularly with practically everything I have done and the steps taken to achieve it. So there you have it welcome to.... Revives RGSC outdoors antics... let the games begin To be continued... Peace out dudes and dudettes, have a cracking Bank Holiday and keep it green

  14. Hi, I've had my Frisian Duck outdoors, but in a pot, since May. First in a greenhouse, then the wilds and now back in a greenhouse since the start of October when the heavens opened. The pistils on her little purple buds have started going red/brown in earnest now. I'm not 100% sure when she will be absolutely finished and I am in no particular hurry. Information about her usual finishing time is vague, of course it always is, but never more so. Some sites say they start flowering at the start of October (I think they might mean finish). Some say they are ready mid-October and some at the End of November. Even the breeder - Dutch Passions own website is vague saying harvest is somewhere between the start and middle of Autumn, presumably meaning around the third week of October (2 weeks time). Quite a few leaves have yellowed and dropped off, but it is far from the majority, so I assume there are plenty of nutrients in the plant and in the soil. I am using Biobizz nutrients and have it reasonably dialled in I think. All that said, I was wondering if organic outdoor pot-based growers bother with a flush? If so, would you assume that there are about 2 weeks left and start to water without nutrients for the last couple of weeks? I am torn between carrying on with nutrients as I have been and going to water only for 'the last couple of weeks'. What do you think? Should I go to water only, carry on giving nutrients, get the microscope out and only go to water once I have the ambers coming on properly or Option X? Midge

  16. So after getting some some encouraging results with the first try, (ok, less than half made it, but that's still some that did, in my book it's a WIN compared to dismal results I've had in the past (look up my post about growing the Ice strain in Dubai aka dubshit, i think i tried cloning then too, but it did not work out, i don't remember anymore, but on the plus side, the plants grew great and the smoke was incredible!!! (indoor growbox with cfls) [@vince noir rock n roll star was very helping back then with advice about mycorrhizae and training methods, i don't like to treat them that harshly to be honest, but now i get where you were coming from mate, it does make them stronger!, i accidentally bent the top three branches on the mother plant a bit too much and now they have knots in those areas!] ) Anyway sorry for rambling on, i took 5 clones off the mother yesterday and they are doing great under the florescent light, but i raised them closer to it this time, hopefully they won't take as long to root and with a better success rate, let's see what happens, today they look happy in the pots under the cling wrap, according to a cool video i saw i just gotta mist the cling film for the first 3 days then leave them after that, gradually allowing more air to get in and out by poking more holes in the cling wrap, and uncovering briefly for a little while every day, that should do it, they should have roots a week or two later. Did i miss anything please let me know, peace.
  17. So lately I've been looking into all things living soil. I stumbled upon The Future Cannabis Project channel on YouTube some months ago. They cover all kinds of topics but there is a huge focus on living soil. It's probably one of the best sources of good information I've come across so far. In a few of the live streams I've watched Leighton has mentioned the horizonal soil method but I'd never seen any content on it specifically. Last night I noticed FCP had uploaded a video covering how to build a soil bed according to this method. I thought I'd share it here for all the living soil freaks. It takes the mimicry of nature that we try to achieve with living soil to the next level. Check it out:
  18. Living in an apartment, it's not so simple to have a big compost bin. So I was stoked to find this video on how to compost in an apartment space, without having to suffer the smells and the bugs, that means it's game on! So today I did exactly what was in this video, almost, I don't have access to Neem leaves here (people in India sure are lucky that way!) but i did have everything else, here is the video, apparently in 3 months i should have usable compost, let's see.
  19. Hello once again, it's been a while, more than 2 years i think, I've lost count, anyway good to be back on here, I wasn't doing any growing for a while but started again last year. Right now I have a beautiful Landrace Lebanese mother plant, growing under the sun in a pot on the balcony, i took 2 clones from her over a week ago, i don't have access to rooting hormone over here in Lebanon so i used organic honey instead, i heard it gets good results, now, one clone seems to be ok and i think might have rooted, the other is wilty and doesn't look so hot, maybe she won't make it, i put them in soil as i also don't have access to rock wool here, in small pots that are half full, then i covered the top with cling wrap and a rubber band, as a makeshift dome for each plant in this case. i try to give them a bit of direct sun every day, but then move them in a shaded area as i don't want to stress them too much yet, i also periodically uncover them until they start to wilt, then cover them back up again. Today, i took 3 more clones from the mama but this time i decided to try using Aloe Vera gel instead, i have a big aloe plant so that's easy, i hope works better than the honey. So...... have I done it right? what would you suggest? i have not cloned in a long, long time now, and the last time i had rooting hormone powder, that was years ago. Peace and stay free.
  20. Hello, I have very, very little experience with cooking with cannabis or making edibles, even though I always cook all my own food and make my own desserts etc! (i don't eat outside "food") and i would love to incorporate my hash into it, but had had little success so far. You see, my tolerance is very high, and in California I found out that i need to eat an extra strong edible just to have a good time, so i focused instead on vaping and smoking, which seemed to work a lot better on me. Now i have lots of premium Lebanese Red hash, i tried making an edible out of it the other day, by heating up half a gram of the hash, then crumbling it and i mixed it into a tablespoon of organic peanut butter, then i mixed that with another tablespoon of the choco peanut butter that i make regularly, just to mask any taste, and then i kneaded the peanut butter mix for a while as well as i could with a spoon, then ate it all. About an hour later, i could feel something different (i was also smoking up) so then i decided to stop the smoking for a while and see how the ride goes. It did not go that well, it was too mild, this, from half a gram of premium hash that would normally couch lock me if i smoked that much of it! what's up with that? one of the main reasons i avoid making edibles is my fear of wasting the product, and i feel it was in this case, what did i do wrong, do i just need a larger amount? so is eating it that inefficient? Help me get a clue please, i feel like I'm missing something.

  23. Hey guys, Im wondering where to get good base soil potting mix for the purpose of building quality soil for no till/clackamas coot soil recipe. Most of the base soils are complete crap, infected and infested. I would like to buy something in big package so I would mix it in larger batch and then left it to cook. I was suggested to buy compo sanna but they only make small packages which are quite pricy. I would be very grateful for your help since Im looking forward to solve this issue for very long time ( years) and trying out commercially available mainstream soils only made my heart cry when I saw the plants were suffering.
  24. Hi guys and gals.. so just after some opinions on soil testing for fertility or contamination. So while out scouting potential plots for the season to come i had a great lil find. Soil in this whole general area is about 70% clay to some ammendments would be in need. Well as you can see I had a pretty lucky find that would solve this issue. This big pile of soil/comp looks pretty decent to me in structure but my concern is where it has come from, how fertile it is and if it is contaminated in any way.. the fact the I grow 100% Organically i also wonder if there may be other ferts that non organic in this. So without spending out on an expensive kit or sending away a sample whats they best way to do this? I no i can do a sediment test to see what it is made up of, I can also test the ph, but I want to no how fetile it is really and if it will pose I risk to my girls.. 1 idea I have is to just germ some beans in it and see how they do.. I have loads of regs from last season so its not like a waste of money. I figure small seedings will be very delicate and should highlight any issues the soil may or may not have.. do you think this would be a worthwhile test? All input appreciated.. peace peeps
  25. Evening Uk420 been quite for a while due to moving house, now I’m settled and ready to start growing again. Having a big downsize as I can’t get my 1.2 meter tent set up which is a shame. I’ve got space which I can fit a 75x75x140 tent in so I’ve brought a budbox to hitch is 160 tall and I’ll chop the legs down so it fits where I want it. I’ve not grown in a space this small before so I know it’s gonna be a Challenge. I’ll be scrogging them heavily and keeping them short as possible. I’ve got a PAR+550 led light fixture from @diyleduk which I want to use as it’s given me great results so far but do you think this will be overkill in that sort of space,should I only use one of the units given me 275watts of power? Extraction will be 4inch rvk with carboair filter again to save on space. Also I won’t be growing in rdwc this time I ’m gonna use the ecolife organic soil which is a first for me. I’m thinking about putting the complete bag into a under bed storage container with some holes drilled in the bottom for drainage as this will help me with head room being lower than a 50litre fabric pot I need to maximise the growing room and this is the only way I can think of giving me abit extra. What’s peoples thoughts on all this before I crack on with it? Cheers in Advance.
