  1. Hi i have three vero 29s hooked up to my mw hlg240h. When I soldered the chips I got a little problem with easily covering the top of he wire with tin, the bottom usually made contact and sticks. The thing is some of my cobs light up correctly and glow like little suns but some of the cobs have like a line on them which is not lighting up,but on other it does. What might be the cause of ti and possible way to fix it please?
  2. Hi guys, long story short. Been growing a unknown strain under a 600w HPS ( got 3 of these unknown strains) just shy of a month since popping through coco. Growing in Canna Pro Plus Coco GHE Full range Shogun Cal/Mag 600w HPS dimmed to 400w about 28inches away from top of the plants RVK extractor and filter plenty circulating air. Currently Running PH @ 5.8 - 6.0 with a Base EC of around 1.7(mS) All is well apart from today I've noticed one of the fan leaves have this on them. Only one, can't see any signs of mildew across any of the plants etc. just this one fan leaf here's the original diary. any info would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
  3. So im on day 71 and feeding this auto white widow 4L of nute water with 0.5ml of biobizz grow and 4ml of biobizz bloom per litre, theyre in soil and have a good wet dry cycle, i cant work out this problem!

  4. Hi all i've been growing my 2nd crop ever this year (i exclude lost wild ones i've planted in the last couple of years- my first grow was with my dad - about 10 years ago, he pretty much left me to it and checked on them once in a while - he didn't even teach me the ways of topping or anything, but that grow went well didn't get massively juicy buds and as i left through being in a dark place at that point i never experienced the smoke.) So the grows gone relatively well they are going to be put into the 12/12 cycle as it's almost time, but i have a problem - i've googled this over and over for the last few weeks and can't settle on what i'm seeing here i think it's nitrogen defficeny don't believe it to be potassium deficency but i also feel it's nitrogen burn - i'm just grateful that it's not more serious and on more/most leaves none the less i've found my way to this site to ask you more experienced folks out there for your opinions. Water PH levels used is 6.5 and the levels in the soil read about the same this started to appear when i shifted over from using baby bio to fox farm big bloom and light used is a 75 led grow light temps are a little above room temp Over to you folks
  5. Hello lovely growers Wondered if anyone could give me some advice on what to do about my slow/ small growers. I started these guys off 5 weeks ago and they're not doing very well. This is my set up: 3 x Northern Lights, Auto flowering (Royalseeds) Box Tent - Aluminum lined 80X80X160CM John Innes Type 2 Compost WAKYME 600W LED Plant Grow Light, Adjustable Full Spectrum Double Switch for Veg and Flower 4 Inch Universal Budget Silent Fan Filter Duct Kit for Grow Tent Quite Operation Inline Extractor Fan Air Diffuser Hydroponics 100mm Carbon Filter Flexible Ducting Smell Odor Temperature Heat Control Feeding Biobizz Bio Grow 1 drop per ltr about every 3 days I don't have the fan on yet as they're so small and they don't seem to need that much water as the soil seems quite moist. I have them in the attic so these days which stays quite warm these days so I don't think temperature is an issue. I'm wondering if its the soil? My lighting is on a 18/6 schedule at the moment and I've just flicked the switch to Bloom to see if the increased lighting will bring things on a bit more. Here are some pictures of the journey so far. I'd really appreciate some practical tips.

  10. Hi there quick question hoping you can help, I recently harvested and during this time a few bits from the floor I have put onto the side in the grow room, we're back to them and they are nice and solid, but the rest of the harvest is drying at a different location it is drying lose and airy and not "pulling in" as such more just drying the shape as it is even the nugget kolas, and looks pretty bad tbh, obviously I am thinking the drying environment, can anyone give me and solutions to rectify for this problem or the causes for this the bud is not super super dence but it sure wasn't like this the drying tent temp is 17/18 and humidity is 60RH any replies is greatly appreciated
  11. Hi guys, I need some help with my new Autopot setup. Long story short the pH under the pots in the tray is way lower (4,9 ~ 5,4) than the pH of the reservoir tank (5,9) and I think Im having multiple problems because of that. Im using coco Biobizz "Coco Mix", Green House Powder Feeding Hybrids and Mostly Sativa fertz, Cal Mag of Grotek and RO water. The pots are 8,5lts and Im using 3cms of washed clay pebbles in the bottom with coco coir only. The values of my reservoir tank are pH 5,8 ~ 6,0 and EC of 1,2. Before of this I had grow only in soil with tap water and without checking the pH with average results for years. Then I had the money and I wanted to improve so I bought an Apera PC-60 pH/EC combo meter and Autopots (8,5 lts easy2grow kits) and started growing with coco coir. I can see the amazing results of checking pH and EC but I had a lot of problems in this grow and I think Im at 40% of full potential. In fact following the Powder Feeding schedule of Green House I overfert to death some plants. Searching in the forum I discovered then than in a multi feeding setup like Autopots you cant go beyond 1,2 EC. I learned. But my actual problem is that like I said the pH of the tray is lower than the pH of the reservoir. I understand that the "run off pH thing" is not accurate but the problem is that in an Autopot setup you dont have "run off", and I think if you have the pH of the feeding solution under each pot way off than the correct value it will cause problems. Right now my reservoir is pH 6,0 and EC 1,2 but the water under each pot is pH 5,4. How can I grow big and healthy buds with that pH? With soil as substrate Im having the same problem with the autopots (the pH is lower 5,2). What can I do? I flushed the pots and checked the run off and effectively the pH is way off too. I think I can grow like this but my buds are very thin in this moment. Maybe can work if I flush with like 7,0 water until the run off is corrected? I think that the plants will not eat all the nutrients if the water of the tray is pH 5,4. Just in case, I googled the forum and the internet searching for answers and I dont have found nothing than helped me. Thanks in advance.
  12. Got 2 autoflowers that started off in a 40cmx40cm footprint tent under a 125w CFL light, recently upgraded to a 80x120cm footprint tent and a 600w Dual spectrum HPS lamp & reflector. The older of the 2 plants is thriving, colas everywhere, the younger plant (by 2 weeks) is dying though, colas look burnt and lower leaves are yellow and thin. they've both been fed with seaweed extract to begin with and tomorite when they began to flower. Will add photos shortly
  13. For the past week or so one of my plants seems to be suffering but I'm really not sure what it could be. As you can see the leaves are quite droopy and are closing/curling shut along the middle vain. I'm growing in soil (Bat mix), just finishing its 3rd week in flower with plenty of fresh air, under 400w HPS with temps of 15c at night and 25c during the day. Humidity is between 40-50%, didn't require any grow nutes as the soil mix was sufficient until flower, started bloom nutes around a week ago (couple of days after the issue was spotted). Any help is appreciated, cheers.
  14. Hi there, pretty new to growing, but I know how to, but usually I just stick to autos. I am growing this Purple Bud strain from SensiSeeds and I am having a few problems with it. I have noticed my leaves looked kind of krinkled and shiny just in the krinkled bits. They are canoeing (this has got better over the days as I started flushing) and I have notices these yellow marks on the leaves (In pictures) and I have seen 3 tiny holes in 3 of my leaves. Also the plant is 4 weeks old and it's quite short and very very bush and stubby with the thickest stem I've ever seen on a plant this old. I was just wondering whether the stubbiness size, bushiness and thickness of this strain is normal? How can I treat the leaves? And also, When should I switch to 12/12? I'll try and upload some photos via another website and enter the URL here. Thank you.
  15. Hi all,Would like to get some advice.I've started 3 x OG Kush auto May 7 2017. Outdoor.Have sprung up nicely, however I noticed ( as with a previous outdoor grow) the oldest leaves ( bottom of plant) seem to be getting white spots and it seems gotten so bad that the bottome leaves looke 'burnt' and have crisped away.What is happening? Google research(!) and a visit to a garden centre I came away with a few things:1. Some sort of pest/fungus : I have used onion/garlic puree to coat the leaves last couple of days. 2. Over/under nutrient (Nitrogen)?3. Too much water ( has been wet spell for last couple of weeks)Was thinking to go get some pesticide/fungicide? See images : http://www.rollitup.org/attachments/img_20170607_143814-jpg.3956628/ http://www.rollitup.org/attachments/img_20170607_143823-jpg.3956629/ http://www.rollitup.org/attachments/img_20170607_143832-jpg.3956630/ http://www.rollitup.org/attachments/img_20170607_143841-jpg.3956631/ Any advice much appreciated!
  16. Hi guys sorry I couldn't post in the problems page but I really need some help! I have 2 plants curling down, I think it might be overwatering? I haven't been doing the 20% runoff thing as I was so afraid of over watering that I only watered a little every couple of days instead of properly watering every 5 days. I'm using canna terra pro soil in 4 litre pots, no nutrients used yet, the plants are 2.5 weeks old, about 5-6 inches tall, have 2 pairs of good leaves on them and starting to grow another pair but I'm pretty sure this problem is slowing the growth rate down. I examined the soil and it feels really cold and damp at the bottom up until about the middle of the pot. I also have 1 plant that's starting to get little brownish yellow patches on the leaves. I've looked around google and thought at first that it might be a N problem, however I do not use any nutes only the ones that's already in the soil so I'm about 90% sure it's an overwatering problem (the leaves are proper curling down not just twisting like an N problem). Any ideas on what to do??? I've bought some perlite that should come tomorrow, I'm planning on mixing a shitload of that in with the soil to hopefully improve the drainage, I'm also going to drill the holes at the bottom of the pot to make the a bit bigger, should I put some holes in the sides as well to get more oxygen in there?? Any help is appreciated, this is a first time grow btw! Thanks alot
  17. Well I'm 4 weeks into flowering and majority of my baby's look great and on the right track. However today I had a little look and a few heads are looking well off the mark compared to the rest. After research of what it could be I have came to the conclusion it must be nitrogen toxicity as the new growth are curled up and very dark green and somewhat shiney looking and the bud growth is welllllll behind the rest. I have posted a picture in my gallery if anyone can give me advice or has any idea what to do to rectify it I will be forever grateful Thanks

    Update on the problem I had a week ago
  19. Greetings fellas, have a little issue with my girls here, may be you could give me some useful advices. I`ve rooted those clones first in a propagator, then potted them in a 0.5l pots after they established there i moved them in final 3l pots about a week ago. I use Bio Bizz All Mix soil. - I`ve gave them Canna Soil Grow 4ml/l Canna Rhizo 2ml/l And some with epsom salts through spray. Tested PH levels 6.5-7.0 Any advices what that could be or this yellowing is all right?
  20. I have a problem with yellow specs on some of my leaves (see pic). Ive checked with a magnifier for spidermite, but nothing, besides the time ive had the problem and the amount of plants I have i would have a big problem. so looking like some kind of deficiency may be. can someone shed some light please!! steve
  21. Hi UK420, Was tending to my garden when I came across this. Have a look. It seems there are these hard white spots going up the stem from the first branch to the second and then running up those branches a bit. Had to crop the pic a touch but its there if you can see. These spots seem to be hard. Never seen anything like this before :/ Growth up top looks normal I think will take some more pics when lights go on. Any and all feedback is appreciated. Thank You.
  22. Hi all, Can anyone help diagnose these? I'm four weeks into flower They were fine until a few days ago when I noticed the EC was a bit high at 2.0 and the tips of leaves were showing a bit of nute burn. It was changeover day for my res anyway so I thought I'd give them a couple of days without feed on just water, Silicon and H2O2. As I wash;t putting feed in I also left the PH where it was at 6.6. I went in today, 48 hours later and saw a lot of the the bud sites looking all shrivelled like this. I'm using a IWS system in clay pebbles Air cooled lights Greenhouse seeds hybrid powder feed Big Buddah silicon Big Buddah Pk8-19 H2O2 for extra oxygen PH usually 5.8-6 The nutrient level had creeped up to 0.8 from the salts left in the pebbles over the 2 days. I've now upped it to 1.6 today and taken Ph to 5.8, plus added big buddah PK9-18 at 2.5ml per litre. Although I'm dubious to think this is a starving problem. Day temps are pretty consistent with lights on at 74-78f although night temps have gone as low as 55f. I've put a heater in there tonight and turned the intake fan off fusing the lights off period. I've searched though lots of the threads here and google image search and can't find anything like this. The closest thing I could find was old-timers carbon dioxide issue where his pal turned off the intake. Any ideas folks? Much appreciated.
