  1. Well with the summer fast approaching I thought I’d use up some of my seeds that I’ve had in the fridge for a while I don’t like doing autos indoors I like the photoperiods as I scrog in rdwc. I’ve gone with the following World of seeds-Afghan Kush Ryder G-13 labs-fro-yo humbolt seeds Org - Fast Flowering OGKZ Delicious seeds-Northen light blue Exotic seeds-Green gummy. I had a few others but see which of these beans pop up if any fail then I will add some more. I soaked them in water for 24 hours and today put them into root riot cubes. fingers crossed they all come up, not sure what size pots to put them into probably go with 15litres which they will go straight into from the cubes. I’ll be feeding them with plant magic oldtimer nutrients. here they are waiting patiently peace.
  2. Hello hello, my fresh faced outdoor naturalists (or naturists- whatever floats your boat, but watch out for the ticks) First up for this years diaries and im in. The eagle has landed, in the form of an envelope from Spain These are going outdoors in a couple of months and I shall pray for a long hot summer. Im at latitude 57, just shy of the arctic circle lol. I am using the same plots as last year, but im thinking about topping up the soil holes with some new stuff, cos I need the exercise. I will update once ive managed to get out there and check the sites, with a couple of pics. One of my sites is a bit flooded, in one area, it was the same last year, so im gonna avoid that part and dig some more holes. Should be good, buckle up for some mad adventures.
  3. Hi, I have a couple of healthy plants which are outdoors in the garden - one Indica one Sativa. Is it wise to take clones from outdoor mothers to be grown indoors? Or would it be safer to start from seed? TIA
  4. 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!

  7. Hi fellow growers! Apologies if I have posted this in wrong bored as I'm new here. During this lockdown I have decided to grow my own auto flowers to keep me occupied. I am growing in a tomato green house outside and will be planting in a 11litre pot once germinated in light biobizz soil mixed with 30% Perlite. The seeds I will be planting are called Think Different by Dutch Passion as I have read that they tend to do well in UK climates. Below I have listed all the nutes and extras I have acquired to grow my plants.. 1.General Hydroponics Flora, Grow and Micro 2. Plant Magic Evolution Spray 3. Plant Magic Bio Silicon Is there anything else I may need or may be of help? I will be leaving to stand 24hours prior to each water before bringing my PH levels to 6.5 to help evaporate any chlorine etc. I am posting on here for any tips and advice as I cant seem to find any direct answers as to what I wish to know. 1st thing is how often should I water my plants? Every 2 days? and 2nd question is when should I start feeding each different nute and how often? Also dosage recommendations as I have seen people suggest using only half or less than half the amount stated on the bottle. I only plan on growing one plant to start off with as a tester before I go planting all my other seeds. Thanks in advance
  8. Hi all this is my first grow and I am planning on growing out doors I intended on planting 3 frisian de.(any big other big yeilds and very low maintenance you can HIGHLY recommend for a UK grow ) Firstly I plant to germinate indoors with a self watering 2lt bottle in compost. I got 3 different spots close to each other just for 3 plants. My plan to have 3 seprate bottomless 10lt bucket berried with a mix of 50/50 compost and natural soil as the soil seems good anyway I'm planing on adding perlite, fish blood and bone meal and lime in to my mix and then using wire mesh bins to keep rabbits away. I will also cover the soil mix with a weed guard sheet potentially stop any competition growing in the bucket and also using the bucket to eliminate compaction of any other surrounding root systems. I have read frisian dew is low maintenance and I am hoping to only go to site once a month. Plant to germinate mid April and put in the ground once they almost out grow the bottle. Also planning on keeping open buckets in shaded areas to gather rain water as a back up during drought Any advice will be appreciated thanks
  9. Hey everyone Just a little thread for anyone with a favourite auto I'm going to smash some rgsc photos & semi' next year but need a couple autos to make up for the eggs and baskets and all that jazz. Anyway, if anyone has some solid thorough grow diary on any rgsc please link me Thanks anyone and everyone Guerilla fo lyf
  10. CBD

    Evening all, I’m trying to do as much research as I can before I start a grow. i was wondering if anyone knows how to get a high CBD and very low THC plant. Do I have to get specific seeds? A certain method of growing? my work industry is incredibly hot on drug testing but I take CBD for health issues and it helps, but it can be quite expensive and I’d like to have a go and growing my own
  11. 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!

  13. Im growing in a soil based mix in large breathable fabric pots in a poly tunnel outdoors. The plants are growing fine but I'm struggling with the water consumption. 2 of the pots are already filled pretty much to the top so I will only mulch them a couple of inches. The other pot was only ever roughly half filled. I would like to be able to give this a much deeper mulch closer to 6". Im worried that burying the main stem by 6" may cause problems, will it root in to the medium or would it cause rot in the stem? There is lots of airflow around the base of the plant and it has a very healthy thick stem. Any ideas or help would be great.
  14. 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.

  16. 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.
  17. 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?

  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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:
  22. 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
  23. 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/
  24. 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
