  1. Hey chaps, I have a question about potting up. First the history... Germinated 3 G13 Maltezerz in a root riot - popped 22th Aug. 9 days later a decent amount of roots coming through the cube and I added them to 4 inch rockwool cubes. Temps were 25-29ºC due to the weather. They were doing ok after a few days of top feeding to establish to roots with one doing better than the others. 7th Sept top fed and left for two days. Checked and two were struggling - a) over watering b) high temps c) stress due to transplant to rockwool. The next day both were shrivelled and crispy and dead. Checked the roots and since being in the cubes the roots had not done anything. I transplanted the one survivor to BB light mix. When transplanting I checked the roots in the RW but they were brown. She's been in the 200ml solo cup since 11th Sept and after a bit of transplant stress she's looking a lot better. Do I transplant her to a 1L or larger 3L pot so she can get some growth? I was thinking a mix of biobiz light and batmix & worm castings?? Any advice would be appreciated.
  2. Can anyone advise how long after potting up a plant is back into full flow and growing normally again. I know there is a little shock and upset as you jiggle their roots and upset their rhythm. A week a few days ?

    potting up, feed biosys 1g/1l + rhizotonic 1.5ml/1l = roughly 4-500ml each with some run off
  4. Hi guys, I've been messing about outdoors on and off for the last 10 years now. This year I was fortunate enough to be in a position where I could set up my first indoor grow at last! Currently got some exodus cheese clones in coco which will be coming down in 2/3 days I also have 11 Disco Biscuits (thanks @VRG for the extra bean and free Blues!) in 1" rockwool cubes. I originally went with the coco as that's what my friend who helped me set up uses. I thought it would be handy in case I ran into any problems, at least I'd have someone with experience to guide me. Luckily no major probs and although I'm absolutely chuffed to bits with my first attempt, I have decided I will be using soil this time round. I've always used bio bizz nutes in the past outdoors and from reading I've realised soil is a more suited medium for them. Plus it's what I've been used to in the past. Just trying to get a game plan together in my head so I don't panic when it comes to doing something and fuck up! I spoke with@FARMER G via pm and he kindly answered my queries, but I keep coming up with more and don't want to pester the man so thought I'd ask a few on here and hopefully someone else can learn from the info too First question is potting up.. I've read that several re pots are good through veg. I've bought 0.7, 1.5, 3.5, 6 and 11ltr pots. Do you think 5 re pots is overkill and will stress the plants more than do them any favours? Also I understand the idea is to fill each pot with roots before moving them on to the next. With the final pot, do I want to fill that with roots before flipping them to 12/12 or do I need flip them soon after the final pot up, so as to leave room for roots to grow in flower and not become root bound? Or do the roots stop growing in flower!? Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.. Just can't learn enough at the minute! Aphat

  6. Hi, can anyone help me diagnose this problem... First of all this Red Purps sprouted with 3 cotyledons instead of the usual two. As a result, it has an extra internode and appears to have more lateral growth from the extra node. Seeds have a 1 in 100 chance of producing tri's, apparently. Anyway, in regards to the issue at hand... I suspect it may be a boron deficiency that is affecting it, at least from what I have seen online, but I can't be sure about this... Can anyone else comfirm? Also, is it somethig that needs to be treated right away, or can I just ignore it and plant her outside soon, which I intend to do. I know I should probably pot her up as well, which could be part of the problem for the deficiency, but she is going into the ground in 4 days so I would rather just leave it. Thoughts?
  7. Yo people! I was wondering if I'm on the right track with potting up.. I've been going jiffy > 1L cup > 11L pot under my 250 but will pot up more in the new set up if its beneficial. T5 1L > 3.5L 600w dual spec dimmed to 250w Root out 11L 600w dual spec cranked up Flowering Does this sound ok? Should I bother with the jiffy pellets or just start the seeds in a 1L pot? Thanks in advance peace
  8. Hey amigos, I want to grow out some Oldtimes regs, but only want to do a maximum of 24-30 days veg before flipping to 12/12. Looking at some peeps diaries I see this strain can easily go up to 40 days or more to show sex. My plan is to veg in a 1 or 1.5l pot for 24-30 days, flip to 12/12 to hopefully show sex within 5 days, and then pot the females up straight into 5 or 6.5l while still on 12/12 so they continue flowering. From anyone's experience, would the plant root out the final pot sufficiently during the first 2/3 weeks of 12/12 if I were to do this? I also use PM Granules when potting on. And would the male/female ratio be affected by doing this also? Gracias
  9. Just a wee quicke!!!!!!!!!! How do you know when your plants have rooted out there pots ? When is it time to pot up?
