  1. Good evening everyone. I'm wondering how many of my fellow scotsmen have had good success growing outdoors this year?? It's been rough here at lat 55 and worsened by the greenhouse, humitidy wise anyway, got some pistils turning brown and i'm worried it's really early rot.

  3. Hey everyone. A few months back, weed guy didn't have any weed, however he gave us a decent handful of some really high quality lemon haze, free of charge, always nice, which to my suprise he explained came from a motherplant that was allowed to flower, then later on was seeded, this is a bit confusing, flowering mothers, but whatever, I grew out 1 plant to begin with in april, but it was male so I started a bunch more, currently at a not bad amount but enough to count on the hands still so no worries, I also had some manadrin cookies with a few seeds present, only in 1-2 buds so I'm told this could be the result of a hermie plant although I have grown out two of those seeds and one is a male other is too early so It can't be hermie, the cookies looks extremely indica, pure afgani genetics, roots grow very very fast, think stems, good genetics. the lemon haze grows roots much slower but seems to branch out at a similar rate, in the beginning they grow faster but once the cookies has a root system it seems to beat it out, I have some photos to share, check them out.
  4. So after attempting to dig my holes at one plot, I've realised the reason it's so clear of trees etc. is because there's only a few inches of soil before you reach a massive rock. My plot is perched atop this massive rock and is surrounded by thick foliage. Basically, there are no digging alternatives, and it's a great plot with near-all day sun (just a cunt to get to) - so I'm going to plant out in fabric pots. It's within a reasonable distance (just fuckin awkward terrain) so I can get up there to water when necessary. I was also going to mix some water crystals into the compost to help with dry spells. My current thinking is this: -Germinate the seeds in 1/2L peat pots -Have them in my LED cupboard on shitty days and out in the sun whenever possible (16/8 cycle) -After approx. two weeks, assuming they're alive and healthy, soak and rip the peat pot and plant directly into fabric pot full of 100% compost (w/ bit of perlite) -Because I don't have time to let natural fertilisers break down, feed with liquid nutes as and when required This is my first grow and I've already managed to butcher a fair few of my photos. I have two Auto Mazars just sprouted and they will be following the plan above unless someone intervenes (lol). I'm considering buying six Auto Lemonade OG from RGSC, because a few photos will be going out today and there will be more space in the cupboard. I've invested £hundreds in this already, I really want some smoke out of it! The first is always going to be a massive learning curve and next year I already know what I will be doing differently. But I know how much I'll kick myself if my only survivors don't make it to bud. I have three decent sized photos about to go out but I'm very aware of how vulnerable they are. Any recommendation on pot size? I currently have a few 40L and 50L fabric pots which I bought a while ago to plant photoperiods in undiggable plots. Could I get away with smaller with autos? 30L? Absolutely any advice would be hugely appreciated. I know there are already discussions about fabric pots and autos etc. on here, I just want to know if there's any glaring problems with my plan. Sorry!
  5. 1st post! I've just moved into a place with a big old South facing balcony and overlooked by no one but the sea! Enclosed both sides and very sheltered, gets a good 6-7 hours sunlight where I plan to have the plants. I have a bit of experience having made a friend a killer stealth cabinet concealed in a fake chimney breast in his house! I helped out on a couple of scrogged grows which went well so have an idea of whats what but 1st time outdoors. I have already 3 Dutch passion auto euforia going approx 2 weeks ago and doing well. Germinated in paper towel and all 3 popped in 24 hrs! I have them in clover multi purpose compost as someone experienced here said it was the biz. Seedlings were in 9cm pots, 2 plastic and one clay. I had them inside in the window and over night under a crapper of an ebay 45w cfl which not convinced very effective. 1st question. Is a 45w cheap 6500 bulb about 3 inches from top of seedlings going to do any good? Any advice on something better but very cheap to get my next 3 going? I think I saturated the soil to begin with and was worried had fucked it to begin with. Interestingly the one in the clay pot def went the fastest. One of them has done the weird three leaf seedling thing... interested to see how that goes. Put them in the airing cupboard a couple of nights which helped dry them out. Gave them a gentle water and then my mum came over and thought she was being helpful by saturating them again!! Gave her a bollocking and decided to transplant to 2l pots to help dry out. I do a lot of gardening so confident not disturbing too much. Will transplant again to bigger pots which I understand is asking for it but lets see what happens. I've had them outside all weekend with seriously hot weather and 2 are going really well. The 3 leafer looks a bit stunted. 14 days in and 2 of them are flying. 2nd question... I got 20l pots for final pots. Is this ridiculously big? I have just ordered some Dutch passion CBD white widow seeds and plan to pop them in a couple of weeks so mid June, hopefully done by mid September. I was planning on keeping the 2 best Euforia plants and 2 best White widow so there are 2 crop a month apart. 3rd question... is this madness with the smell? I have a balcony with neighbours above but they wont be able to see them. There is a wall between our balcony and the neighbours to the left and end of building to the right. Right on the sea it is quite breezy. Guess I will have to suck it and see. 4th question. How do I make images smaller?

  7. So how did you guys get into growing in the great outdoors? What made you come up with the idea? Why did you start? Did you make any vital mistakes? What strain? How many plants? What was your yield? What year did you start? Just curious Provocateur.
  8. Afternoon. I've mixed my own living soil and have some spare 20L air pots that I'm thinking of using outside. Being pretty new to growing with living soil, will these pots be big enough given they will purely be living off the soil? Should I just keep an eye on the nutrient/microbe levels or just start with bigger pots? Cheers
  9. Hello folks, I'm Herb. Finally got my arse into gear and I'm growing my own for once. Having a shot anyway! I am usually quite shit at keeping records and organised and such but I've always been sure I want to document the journey, so I am starting this thread now while I am on the computer and can be arsed. I just ordered twelve Real Gorilla Seeds, and some jiffy pellets. The strains I went for were Green Gold and Mighty Gold, half and half. Feminised. I would love to keep it old school and sex the plants and save money and learn more about farming with natural seeds, but I will be working away most of the summer, and want to be able to relax and just leave em to it. I went for RGS because they were a bit cheaper than what I was going to go for, and after reading a few rave reviews I started noticing more tales of their greatness popping up - especially the Mighty Gold. I have several plots on various mountainsides - all with uninterrupted sky and perfect S or SE views. There's absolutely no one about and almost no reason to go to them, but if you did there's no cover for a big plot. Most grows (it seems) is find a spot with good sun that's totally enclosed/protected, and then cram as many plants as possible in there. But my environment, I reckon, is better suited to sparse planting, out in the open for the world to see, but in camouflage. Like a wolf in sheeps clothing! Har har.... I'm talking about tens of square miles of forestry and field, and roughly fuck all people for each of those square miles. I have walked for hundreds of hours around this area, and see another person perhaps once every ten or twelve. Almost always on proper footpaths, that is. Anyway, the essence of my theory is that 6-8 plants dotted in very small groups across this area is very unlikely to be discovered, when you consider how close you'd need to get to smell or spot a lone ganja plant among the other foliage. They're a pain in the arse to get to, all on slopes, with lots of obstacles, all to get absolutely nowhere. I just realised I've actually written a fair bit, my plan was just to put it down to ensure I continued it, not actually write about this. It's 10:40am and I still haven't slept so I'm going to do that now. I will be back soon and give a proper log! Look forward to me crying to y'all for help when it all goes tits up :haha:
  10. Iv been talking to a Nordic seeds company that specialises in outdoor seeds and I think indoor too for there climate , he has sent me seeds (on way) and has chosen what he thinks is the best for my lat I said 56,cold ,wet weather here on Scotland with sun coming and going he was happy to send some to the UK and pay for the mailing free and was exited too know his seeds are going to the UK ...I couldn't belive It was over the moon as I don't get a lot of money ..what a kind guy/company the strains are --- quoted An indica auto mix and a strain called Himalaya Blue Diesel. Anyone heard of these before or grown them in UK There is photos of them grown where there based ,will post them when I get on the laptop later they look intresting and I can't wait to try these things
  11. So this is my first go at trying a outdoor gorilla grow, I've done a fair bit of reading up, but any hints/tips/suggestions along the way would be appreciated Over the Christmas holidays, i was tripping, walking the dogs in the snow, enjoying a smoke and pondering the dilemma every stoner has: I smoke too much. In my budget some of that money could be used for better purposes, BUT.. we all love a good smoke.. "i can't grow inside" i huff, but i can grow outside.. Even after i sobered up i had likened to the idea, a short while after having a think, i realised I already had a place out of the way, discrete, quiet, and hard to access, all else i needed were seeds, pots, fertilizer and 6ish hours of sunlight. It took 2 hours or so to clear the place of weeds and to ensure to enough sunlight. On the subject of seeds, i thought long and hard about what to try, i knew i needed two strains, so i could compare which grew better for my climate, and to decide what to try and go all out on next year. My immediate thought was to look at old strains i know and love, blue cheese, northern lights etc however, if i were to be growing outside, where i can really do very little, in terms of control over the temperature of the plants. I would instead need two strains that are tough, resilient, used to my latitude&weather... That really narrowed the list down to about 20, and i went with: Latitude 52.1 UK Dutch Passion No1 x3 7th/april germination date (early september harvest) Blue hash x3 1st/april germination date (to harvest in early october) I'll also use: 10L&40L fabric bags Bloom fert for fertilizing during flowering Sensi Grow A+B for fert during the vegetative stage Peat pellets for germination. If all goes well, I'll update the journal every 2 weeks or so with some pictures to keep you updated on how everything goes, all should start april/
  12. Yo ,Hows it going Recently thought about doing a grow outdoors in Scottish weather, got some Early Skunk Auto Flowering seeds from sensi seeds, heard they were easy to grow for 1st timers looked at reviews and seemed amazing and was wondering if anyone could give me some tips/help from start to finish what do to , just what soil should I use outdoors, feed , times of year to start etc its quite cold over here still but summer is coming

  16. Hi guys I'm looking for a strain of auto's does well in greenhouses/outdoors was thinking something like Dianfem blue amnesia XXL, Original sensible Purple Haze or Buddha magnum which I have heard goods things on here. I'm sort of a newbie (Done a few grows indoors but it was awhile ago) so i'm game for any tips and suggestions too. Would like too though if anyone has had any experience with these strains or a great/bad one with others strains in a greenhouse.
  17. So here maybe a new idea for you all. ive come across something called the Kratky method. A hydroponics system with is just a bucket filled with water and a basket In the lid filled with perlite. Plant in the middle add nutes to water and grow outside. And it works! People have mentioned that stem rot and things would be likely but from what I’ve seen it works amazing and the buds come out beautiful. gas anyone else done this or is it just a lucky break he had? Also thing for Guerilla Growing purposes it’s amazing. Hang a bucket in a tree with an auto.
  18. So my mission begins, a big thanks to all at Dinafem and a big to Mark, once again pulling out all the stops for us seasonal growers I've suffered a real lot the last few months, after herniated disks in the spine, quacks discovered I have aggressive PsA, never experienced so much pain before hence my GG selections are for once..My own saviour. I've chosen Original Amnesia Auto for that personal favourite heavyweight hit and I'm gonna sample OG Kush Auto CBD as my second selection. Also have a few tins of Critical Jacks and other strains from the Dinafem catalogue that I've collected the past few months. I'll be germing in clear pint cups, bottoms removed and placed in coloured cups, transplanting made easy for autos. Pics and video to follow on that. Soil is all native with very little in the way of amendments. Will update on that as I go, just getting started here, well when all this snow retreats Wish you all the best for 2018, may the wind be at your back and the sun upon your face
  19. Hi Once I get my head round uploading pics to here I'll share what's going on in my cheap greenhouses! I've spent less than £30 on them and less than £40-50 on seeds, soil, fertiliser and pots. In fact the bulk of the cost is pots! I have two auto's and 3 fem in right now, 3 more fem's germing and another 5 waiting to germ once this other 3 have gone into soil. Theres nothing fancy about this at all, just my first go and me muddling through it! It's so interesting reading everyone's journals and seeing the differences and problems people come up against. Excited to see this journal through!
  20. Hello All and Happy 420, I am happy to be running a pack of Female Seeds Outdoor Grapefruit as a tester this season. Outdoors at Lat51 Bit of info on them here https://www.femaleseeds.nl/en/p/outdoor-grapefruit-311 i did ok with FMS SexBud outdoors last year(especially the fast grapefuity pheno), so i was quite interested in this strain. My understanding is that the same 'white grapefruit' is used in both these lines and the ODgrapefuit is better suited to OD...i prob would have bought a pack for a gamble so more than happy to put a few out and see what happens Got a few friends to keep them company, i have keen to try the Blueberry Cheesecake so might run this. Dunno have to see how i do for plot space This will be my 3rd time outdoors so still learning as i go, i will be aiming for a mix of plots, strains and finish dates. Started some prep but still loads to do, adding FBB and chicken poo & opened up plot for maximum sunshine. another plot... I will be starting seedlings inside under 24/0 CFL lighting and aim to plant out when they are a couple of weeks old, sometime in May probably. I hope to juggle maturity/plant out/daylight hours so that they don't flower on plant out...Fingers crossed GLHF
  21. Hi everyone, this is going to be my first time grow. I've got pretty much everything planned but I'm a bit torn between whether or not I should plant my auto seeds straight into the final location (outdoors in the ground) after germination or plant them in pots first before transferring once they've grown for a while. The reason I ask this is because I've read in multiple places that auto strains don't take well to be transferred pots, and it can do more harm than good in comparison to just planting into the ground directly. Any advice from personal experience/things you've read would be greatly appreciated.
  22. Greetings fellow gger's and all fellow herbalists, welcome to my RGSC Comp Diary! Firstly a big shout out to Panik for generously providing this opportunity to grow out what most gg's have been waiting for a long time to see come to fruition, these legendary seeds of Kong!! I'll be growing out Whitey Freeze and Green Gold here at Lat 53,.. Popped these yesterday straight into root trainers, no pre-soak, window sill jobby. Once they are up and happy and the weather warms they'll move to a safe spot in garden until I can get them to plot. And here is where they're going: This is a new plot I'd been eyeing up for some time, looks very promising. It's like a sump at the bottom of a slope so seems nutrient rich: Lots of worms! In my holes i'll be putting WRHM at the base, and a mix of homemade garden compost, vermicompost, calcified seaweed and bonemeal: Well excited for the coming season, Jah willing it could be a great one to remember. All the best to everyone gg'ing out there, stay safe and may you have a bountiful harvest.

  24. My apologies if this is already a thread but I can't seem to find one like this. So has any ever vegged indoors until the plant was HUGE and then transplanted it outside in the UK at the start of the season? I love the idea of it and yielding massively from one plant. Provocateur.
