  1. 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

  3. Can anyone tell me what to look out for when Auto's need feeding when growing outdoors in pots. I know when to water, if the pots feel light when lifting, but when should you feed them. I read that if you use good soil, they shouldn't need feeding. But some of my larger fan leaves are turning yellow, and when i posted some pictures, on here to ask why, someone said they are hungry and need feeding. But surely when the when fan leaves are going yellow, it might be a little to late. I know there are many reasons why leaves go yellow, but going by my knowledge, it isn't due to over watering, as usually you would see leaf droop, due to leaves holding excess water. It isn't due to PH levels as this mainly affects Hydroponically grown, I am growing in soil, which should balance out the PH levels. My auto's are just coming into flower, about 2.5 weeks. is it a natural cycle for auto's for fan leaves to die off to put energy into buds.
  4. Hey guys, first time guerrilla here. What a terrible season this year. Doesn't look like I picked the best season to give this a go. After losing 4 of the 6 that I started with to slugs (GRrrrr) I've ended up with two healthy looking ladies (or at least I thought so) albeit stunted due to the complete lack of sun for the majority of the summer (and probably some inexperience to boot). However upon my latest visit I noticed many yellow spots on the bigger of the two (in early stages of flowering), just effecting the leaves up top. Obviously got me worried. Had a little internet search and seems it's most likely either too much/little nutes or leaf septoria, which I haven't heard of until now. So if anyone could help me diagnose this and figure out if it's something I should be worried about and what I can do to try and stop it spreading if it is an infection. I admit I got these two plants mixed up at some stage but I'm 98% sure she's a Mighty Gold BX1 from RGSC which I believe is a Semi-Auto. I'm growing in a bramble patch which I understand can have drawbacks. I wonder if this could be the cause? Any help massively appreciated. Thanks.
  5. I have 2 Auto Skunk 1 plants. Both planted at the same time In 11 litre pots using Plant Magic supreme soil. Both started flowering but one has buds the other seems to be going back to vegging and become very leafy. Just wondering if anyone knows what's going on. Using Plant Magic soil bloom feed. As you can see the 1st picture of skunk 1 plant you can see the buds, but on the 2nd skunk 1 plant there are more leaves growing where the buds are supposed to be. Anyone know what the problem might be. or will it sort it's self out.
  6. Can Anyone tell me by looking at these picture If my plant is going hermy on me. The plant is into flowering stage but i noticed a couple of ball sacks. is this normal or is it turning. There are 2 different Plants. 1 I think is ok, but the buds aren't very big. Please advise
  7. has anyone (from experience) grown any good strains in terms of high thc content and large yields in eastern parts of the uk?
  8. Just wondering if anyone is growing autos in a poly greenhouse. I started mine beginning of June outdoors, al was going good, until the weather turned shit, so then I brought a poly walk in greenhouse as the temps where starting to get a bit low. I am just a little concerned about the lack of sun we are getting. how will the lack of sun affect the grow. Is there anything I can do, apart from getting a indoor grow tent, as this is not feasible at the moment.
  9. 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.
  10. I know that Im quite late to the party but I need to revitilize my greenhouse soil asap and plant seeds right away. I hope its not too late for some outdoor plantations. I would be mostly planting regular non autos. I was thinking of buying worm castings (not sure if solid or liquid would be better) + greenhouse bioline grow and bloom as simple solution for this season MY overthinking procrastinating head wanted to build a soil but kind of never really sourced everything for the clackamas coot recipe something like ECOTHRIVE substrate in UK. I know it would be the best but what can I do for this season to still have some nice fat dancing in the wind sexy beasts? Previous season I used green house powder feeds hybrid on sativa and I did not liked it at all ( I think I used quite heavy doses and plant did not liked it)
  11. Greetings, looking to do an outdoor grow in the garden this year with some autos, and I want to get going soon - was hoping to get some Dinafem autos in, as heard they are good, but looks like I missed my chance with what happened to them. Most places I've looked totally sold out. So my question is, best breeders and strains for outdoor? I did GHS Super Lemon Auto last summer, was nice but started a bit late so got a bit of budrot by September. Decent lemony hybrid buzz off what I got though, two clearly different phenos. Hoping to have this new grow done more like August time. I hear Sweet Seeds is good? Has anyone tried Humboldts Autos? Any input appreciated, cheers
  12. Hi all, posting on behalf of a friend. She wants to grow autos in greenhouse for edibles. Can anyone recommend a strain that will produce good yields, medium/high thc, low/med cbd? thanks for any advice
  13. Hello, newbie here. (Sorry for long post) I grew autoflowers last year and want to grow again this year! Last year I had a incredibly basic setup, 5 VERY small plants (around 50/60cm Fresian Dew auto grown only with multi purpose compost and rainwater). They were very nice but I've done plenty of research and spoke with friends and have decided to up my game this year. I've got myself; - Sour Diesel auto (Dinafem) - 12l Root Pouch fabric pots - 100l Perlite (far too much) - 100l BioBizz light soil mix - BioBizz Bio Grow & Bio Bloom nutrients Who has had any experience with these products? I plan to add %25 perlite to the soil. I'm also restricted by hight so I want to LST my plants to keep them under 70cm, I have no experience with this so any advice is very appreciated!

  16. auto

    Hi there All I'm a total noob and was after a bit of confirmation on some stuff re. Autos As I understand it these types of plant flower regardless of day length, whereas photo-periodicals need a 12:12 light:dark ratio to flick to flowering mode? My query is on what flicks an Auto to flowering. I'm assuming that it's related to Pot Size, and if I put one in (totally as an example) a 1L pot and one in 10L pot that the 1L would flower way earlier, whilst the 10L would sit making a larger root ball only to flower when it had taken over the 10L pot? Is this correct? I've got my first lot of Auto seeds, and thinking of getting them sown ASAP and then growing on windowsill with a crappy LED light until they go outside in late Apr/early May. And was thinking of trying different sized Final Pots to see if I can get some staggered cropping and thereby have a bit of early drying & curing practice. Thoughts? Also, if I plan to do the above windowsill start could you advise a good size pot to keep them in before they get potted into Final 10L fabric pots for outside? Only have a windowsill and want them to remain discrete if you get my drift (Or would I be better off delaying sowing until maybe April or something?) Any advice gratefully received - Many thanks in advance MJMan

  18. NORTH WALES DANK 420 x REAL GORILLA SEEDS HILLSIDE OK 2018 Well ladies and gents, ive been lurking on this forum for about 6 years now and still learning something new everyday. Been a member for 4 years now. I'm about to embark upon my 2nd outdoor grow. The first was done in 2014, and frankly it was rushed, done out of excitement and not very well executed. That being said, from the 6 plants i started with i cropped 4 at the beginning of October. Fast forward a few years and this time I have planned and prepared meticulously. I scoured Google maps for my spot. Visited multiple times and varying times of day, not a human soul for miles. I've dug, prepped, caged, ordered, planned, prepped some more and finally... I'm ready. This year im running Real Gorilla Seeds gear exclusively. I chose 5 strains and received a 3 pack of Easy Sat x Skunk #1 which im extremely excited about. But my line up of choice is as follows: 6 x Mighty Gold 6 x DFG 6 x Fire 99 6 x GreenGold 6 x Royal Mazar I know, I'm excited too!! I've seen and heard nothing but good things about RGS gear. This year is going to be an absolute belter i can feel it. Just wanted to kick my diary off anyway. In the process of uploading pictures of progress and steps so far. I'll definitely update the diary weekly but more than likely a few times a week. I'm looking forward to seeing what you all do this year. Good luck Gorillas!
  19. I'm looking for Outdoor Indicas but as most seed companies label 60/40s indica dominant strains as "Mostly Indica" its hard to know which one is the best. You can get really racy 60/40 indica dominant strains and get more indica effects from slightly sativa dominant strains. So, Ideally what i'm looking for is a selection of RGS top 3 pure Indica strains, or Indica strains that are ideally at least 80%+ Indica. Any ideas? Much love x
  20. Hi forum lurker for many years, first successful grow, had a couple of previous grows all outdoor which in some way have failed, bad weather...bad choices..all my fault!! anyway i decided to pop 3 seeds, but after my partner whining about the neighbours smelling, i gave 2 to my pal to finish at his. The one i kept was DP Auto Glueberry OG, i think i panicked as weather had been so good and was threating to rain so chopped a little premature. so here goes, not many pics as i never intended to do a diary just chuffed it panned out so well for a novice.. Germinated 3rd May 2018 Wet paper towel method then transfered straight into the final pots 12litre root nurse fabric pots these were put in a temporary greenhouse untill established. Heres the DP auto glueberry OG just poking through.... Not much content as i was mega busy with work and just let them do there thing for first few weeks Others which were gifted to a friend mid grow as smell and neighbour activity Major jump in growth on next as weather picked up crazy end of may/ start of June was taking so much water was unreal. Other strains included, CBD lemon potion and Auto Daquiri Lime, wish i kept that one too as that finished mega in my friends garden but oh well...
  21. Hi, there probably is the info somewhere, but couldnt find it but just got a couple questions regarding my first grow! i basically just found a few bagseeds, from a while ago planted 3, and 1 has actually come along really nicely! just transfeered into a bigger pot as it outgrew the first! First question is, my garden is south east facing and gets probably a solid 6 hours of direct sunlight a day, from behind some sliding glass doors, which is definitely doing the job for now. my main question is, am i headed for trouble once in the vegetative stage? ive read they requite a lot more light, some people leaving them on 24 hours of artificial light. I have a super bright LED bulb to stick in the cupboard in case, its basically 16W (equivalent to 140W halogen, 1600 lumens) it also says day light 6000k on the box (not sure what that means), is this going to help? will this be any good for flowering as well or am i best just moving it to my glass doors for the day then sticking in the cupboard. also would moving it out of a cupboard, everyday the fact its 1 cool LED negate the need for a fan? also bought 5 real deal feminized auto flowering seeds, will they be almost as simple as letting the them chill by my glass doors? Thanks and sorry if all this info is out there somewhere this just seemed simple. heres a few photos of the plant and the spaces i have to grow (just waiting for the beer to finish brewing in the bigger cupboard then gunna obviously clear it out) just for a reference. Anyway if anyone does have any reassuring words or advice to improve my success, it'd be much appreciated! Im just looking to get some nice smokeable bud without spending a fortune on kit Thanks in advance and hope everyones having a chilled, healthy time!
  22. Hey everyone! I’m excited to be back on here and journaling my grows again. This is my second attempt (first was 3 years ago) and cannot wait to get started. Let’s grow! Here’s one of the beauty’s from last year.
  23. Hi all, I'm very new to growing and everything other than smoking I grew 2 different strains of autoflower in my greenhouse and have been curing them in jars for at least 2 weeks now and they both taste horrible.. i chopped one down early as it had started to get bud rot, i chopped the other down a few days after because i couldn't tell if they were ready or not and probably a little too excited (learnt from that mistake) Anyway i know i have harvested too early and also ruined the taste and aroma from having the fan blow on the bud while drying (again another lesson learnt) but can i make half decent hash or oil from these buds? The blackberry strain does get me a little high after 2 bongs but i have to fight myself to get through one.. and the krippleberry is looking like a waste, its harsh as hell and gives a wierd high, probs from being chopped early but we're past that now aha What do you think? Can I get any use out of these at all? I was thinking hash, oil or edibles just as a way of using them, i hate wasting cannabis!
  24. Hey guys, firstly id like to offer a big thank you to all the contributers on this forum, this is my first grow (be gentle with me haha) and ive learned a lot through trawling the archives...the site has also been a great distraction through this whole lockdown ting, so yea..been lurking for months..thought id chip in! Planted 3 x Auto Mazar and 3 x Auto Ultimate (Dutch Passion) on 29/04 in a small polytunnel, in retrospect this might have been a little earlier for my location which is quite mountainous and judging by other plants (foxgloves etc) seems to be about 2 weeks behind nearby areas at lower altitude. They were slow enough to take off and i quickly realised my inexperience was going to be an issue (particularly in terms of medium - i used a half n half blend of topsoil and compost) So after a bit more research, back to the drawing board with a batch of new seeds. (5 x Dinafem WWxxl and 3 x Dutch Passion Colorado Cookies..both Autos) soaked in water for about 18hours, straight into a variety of plastic pots from maybe 7-11 litres..just whatever i had laying around...the key difference was the soil, mixed up a new batch with about 20% rich topsoil, 30% compost, 30% Farmyard manure, 20% perlite..the widows popped through 4 days later (20 May) while the CC took an extra day or two..but 100% germination for both which was pretty sweet...so everything was going really well in the polytunnel..a couple of slug issues..(made some spikey collars from beer cans and copper tape..pretty much sorted that out) Suddenly had 13 happy little plants, sun was shining..thought we would be in for one of those rare, special summers in Ireland, but then the weather patterns changed and seem to have been hit by rain and wind and generally dreary, grey weather ever since haha...the polytunnel turned into a kite and landed up in a neighboring field on more than one occassion..lost a couple of plants along the way, but more or less managed to salvage the operation, Got some nutes going..Biobizz Fishmix graduating to Grow, Bloom, Top Max, Heaven and Acti-Vera (i know..."all the gear - no idea" haha) started on quite low dosages, but have increased steadily..sort of half following the biobizz schedule, half winging it while trying to read each individual plants progress and needs. The biggest concern was the weather, the pounding wind in particular..i was lucky to have an old window and frame laying around which i repurposed into a kind of ghetto coldframe using some old crates for supports, the addition of 4 fence panels helps break the wind while allowing a bit of air movement as the humidity in this are is pretty insane..this setup has been a lifesaver, allowing me to easily move the girls into the open when the weather allows and giving some protection from deer, rain, wind...on that, i lost a couple of plants due to wind damage which broke some branches allowing for stem/bud rot to enter the system..i was pretty ruthless in dealing with this, cutting off colas and taping up the stalk..i managed to salvage a couple of under ripe buds, but pretty annoying..had a few spots of powdery mildew form on fan leaves when left in "The Fort" for a few days, but have treated them with milk and water..not a major issue so far... ive harvested 2 Ultimate and 1 Mazar...which may have been a little early..but this has given me a chance to test a couple of drying methods, half ending up in brown bags the other half wet trimmed and hung in a shed..both seem to be ok, no mold issues..good experience for when the bigger, more developed plants mature..so yea...thats basically where im at now...got 4 and a half White Widow XXL Autos at 80 days, 3 x Colorado Cookie Autos at 78 days (and one little Dinafem Gorilla Glue photo for the craic) I would have to say the Dinafem WWxxl are the best of the bunch IMO..i might be wrong here, but looks like 2 phenos, one stocky Indica type jobbie and one lanky Sativa leaning one..(again, total noob, so might just be my enviroment etc) here are a couple of photos of the project, would love any feedback
