  1. Hi all, Just joined the forum and starting my first proper grow, so apologies in advance for my ignorance in some of the basics! I'm going to be using a 2x2x2m tent, 3 x 600W HPS and will be using Plant Magic nutes: Coco HW A+B Veg Coco HW A+B Bloom Root Stim Enzyme Bloom Boost Also have pH adjusters if necessary. My water is pretty much the hardest in the country (141.1mg/l calcium!) so not going for CalMag unless deficiencies show. I'm using fabric pots and will be looking to grow 8 plants, any advice one the final pot size? I've got 20litre pots already, but wonder if they might be too big? Might get some 16litre? And any idea how long each of those sizes might take to root out fully during veg? Could potentially cut down the number of plants and keep the 20litre pots if necessary. I'm growing Barney's Vanilla Kush which apparently doesn't stretch that much, hoping I've calculated the space OK. If anyone has any other pointers on lights, nutes, etc would also be very very welcome! Will be posting pictures of every stage of the grow and asking for advice so please stay tuned! Mikey
  2. What size pots is everyone using. On my first grow , from what I’ve read you should start autos in the pot they’ll be finishing in. ive gone for 20l pots and I’m seeing good results but just wondering what everyone else does. Space wise I’d probably prefer small plants but more of them (1x1 tent) Whats everyone else’s experiences ? What do you prefer to do with your autos ?
  3. Looking at pot options for 60x60x1500 tent. There is space for 4x 11L pots but I'm wondering if they will be too big by volume? Or even too many by pot number? Once fan, filter and light is accounted for, looking at a vertical height from the top of the pot to the light of around 800mm. So would 4x 20cm (or ~6L) pots be a better idea. Not looking for award winning yields or masses of effort required to LST in order to keep them low.
  4. Hi, after a bit of advice My plants are 7cm tall 2 and a half week old and in 3 inch plastic pots Ive planted in Jonn Innes No 2 potting on compost with Vermiculite mixed in Should I be looking at Potting up? If so what size? and also what media? Thanks in advance
  5. Please move if posted in wrong place Hi everyone. Been reading on here for a while found a lot of helpful information that’s helped me with my first few attempts. Long story short I started growing to help my mum who had terminal cancer with pain relief, fast forward 18 months and I’m now on my 4th grow. I’m struggling to achieve gpw and think this is down to my environment. I have a 1.2m bloomroom loft tent. I have a 6 inch outtake with a rhino filter. Currently using passive intake with a bit of ducting from room below. Running a 600w hps with dimmable omega ballast. X2 oscillating fans, humidifier for veg. 700w oil filled rad for lights off. My fan is a rhino thermostatic but I don’t think the temp control is very reliable. I’ve been using 11l pots with pure canna coco. Using canna range a and b, rhiz, cannazym, boost and pk. Swapped pk for bloombastic on current grow as advised by someone better than me lol. Watering every 2 days up to 2.5L in flower! Don’t seem to be getting the growth I would like in veg and seems to take forever for them to gain size! Now for the questions please! Do I need an intake fan? If so what size? Recommendations on fan controllers for intake outake and heater? Or easiest way to control them all? Would I be better doing 9x6.5l? Less veg time? If so would I put them straight under hps from cutting? A lot more info to share with you guys if you need any to help me! Sorry to ask so many questions on my first post! Thanks in advance
  6. So I’m currently setting up my grow room, it’s a 2.0m(L)x 1.2m(W)x 2.0m(H) grow tent and I have 2 600watt gravitas. I’m going to be growing mainly stardawg but I’m unsure of how many plants and what size pots I should use. I was thinking 10 plants all in 10 litre pots?? Anybody know if this would work if so what would it yield and if not what else should I do?
  7. hi all happy 420, just like to say very new here and to this so have a few questions for you avid green fingered fiends, all auto relating and mainly nutrient related, well where to begin... 1: using nutes would you scale down if you were in batmix or lightmix or just generally scaledown anyway irregardless of what soil you use..? 2: what nutes to give.. grow, root stim, bloom, nector, bloom/flower enhancers.. etc? and when to give them.. let the pot go dry?? wet/dry? or just every few days give it a lil drink..? 3: pot size 12l airpots same as 18l premium square pots.. well thats all i can think off now.. sit back light up and have a lil think,,, many thanks
  8. Hi All. This is my first grow and first post. I've been loving what I've been reading so far, there is clearly a massive amount of time, love and expertise all over this forum. I've currently got 4 plants on the go in NW Scotland, 3 mexican sativa's and 1 auto dwarf. I started them all under the clear panels of my barn during the very warm late spring we had and carefully potted up as the roots poked out the bottom. I'll admit that I put the horse in front of the cart when I ordered seeds on a whim. I really should have read more about what strains suit Scotland best but I'm here now, so may as well persevere and gain some experience. I moved one sativa outside in a builders bucket filled with compost, soil and perlite around 2 weeks ago and kept the others inside. The guy I moved outside has grown much slower (understandable given he's colder, wetter and had to get used to new soil mix) but he's catching up The other guys that have been indoor are much lankier and large of leaf and look great! I want to get these guys outside pretty soon. I guess I have a few focused questions for anyone that has perhaps sailed these particular waters before! The outside area I'm growing is awash with bracken, willow and all manner of weeds so it's pot growth for sure. Will the pots in the above picture be big enough or should I risk potting up these fairly big fellows into a builders bucket? Should they be staked to protect against wind? It's obvioiusly fairly wet in bonny Scotland. If overwatering of the soil can be a bad thing, is is worth putting some cardboard on the soil to act as a mulch but also to deflect the water? I can then water when needed? When the plant itself is rained on, is this a bad thing or just the soil getting soaked? These are already quite leggy, should I be pruning the top middle shoots from now? Thanks in advance! Tallestman
  9. Hi everybody and greetings. My first question for 2016 is what's the biggest/most effective pot size I should use under a 250w for growing autos. I've done autos previously in 5ltr posts under a 250w and usually achieve 45-60 grams per plant (depending on strain and training). This time I'm planning to start some autos in small pots for 12 days (I usually start the seeds in a small starter pot) and then to pot on using PM granules as well Root Juice. I will be using PM soil. What pot size do guys recommend for maximum yield and proper rooting under a 250w? And what about airpots? I they beneficial for autos in anyway?
  10. Hello guys have 2 skunk #1s n 2 bubbleish repoted good few times extreme root mass put in 20Ls notis a good good rate of growth n wk 1 of flower flowered from roughly 12 inch bit low stress training as well to widen them out quite new to this don't want to have to scrap any due to over crowding only 1.2 by 1.2 m tent any tips would be much help thanks
  11. Hi Peeps I might be going to an Auto Pot system but they only do a 8.5ltr and 15ltr version. Ideally I want to get an 8 pot system but use 11ltr pots. I have spoken with Auto Pots and I can buy just the setup with out the pots but does anyone know if I can just stick 11ltr pots in the 15ltr trays? Auto Pot seem to think I can Any help would be appreciated Thanks T
