  1. Good day all. I have been growing the Fast Flowering Green Crack for a couple weeks. Here she is in all her glory. This grow is for @HSO-Mark Strain: This is a new fast strain form Humboldt Seed Organization. The plan is to vegetate the Green Crack until the OGKZ is ready to harvest. This will give her about 6 weeks of veg. before the switch. Setup: I now have a 24" x 24" x 40" DIY veg tent with a LEG grow light that emits light between 449nm blue and 630nm red. This light is only for veg. Flowering tent is 1.2 x 1.2 x 2m and my intention are to try and fill her completely with 1 plant in that space. Method: DWC 5 gal bucket with hydroton and two air stones; light in the flower tent is a Mars-Hydro 2000. 6 inch extractor with speed control and carbon filter. Exhaust outside, with passive air intake. Just trying to keep it simple. Nutrients will be HP Flora series, Cal-mag, Silica, Hydro-Guard, unless something unexpected shows up. Let the show begin.
  2. Well a bit of a latecomer to the Dinafem X Intense Nutrients grow off show but finally here we go. First of all a big thankyou to @Dinafem-Mark and @Intense Nutrients Matt for making this happen and supplying the seeds and Intense nutrients Organix range. I've been looking forward to this as i've never grown any Dinafem before but these Blueberry and Ocean Grown cookies sound delicious, also new to the Intense Nutrients Organix range although for my current grow in flower i have been using Organix Grow and Bloom with excellent results so far and the plants seem to love it. This grow i will be using the Organix Granules, Grow, Bloom, Foundation and Runzyme kindly sent to me for this competition by @Intense Nutrients Matt. As a quick rundown this grow will hopefully be just 1 each of the Blueberry and Ocean Grown Cookies in compost, ighting for veg will be T5's, 250w and 400MH, mixed spectrum 400w HPS and a 315w CMH 930 Agro Lamp for flowering in a Scrog. This grow will be started in my DR90 tent for i expect most of vegging and then the girls will be transferred into my main 90cm x 90cm x 210cm Growdrobe for rest of veg then flowering. Only one seed has just broken ground so far so tomorrow will be Day 1 for her, i'm sure the other will appear anytime just now. Before i start the diary here is a rundown of my setup, equipment and methods used. New eqipment has also been purchased for the DR90 tent as you will read below, so all new environment and things for this grow but all should be good. SECRET JARDIN DR90 TENT & INTAKE/EXTRACTION. So this grow will be started in my Secret Jardin DR90 tent, i've owned this for around 10 years but this will only be my second grow with it so its virtually new and kept in its original bag, as some of you know i usually grow in my 90cm x 90cm growdrobe but that is currently occupied with a grow in flowering for a few weeks yet. So same size tent as my normal growspace but a little less headroom. Now i used to use Variacs to control the intake/extraction but i have just purchased a SMSCom Hybrid controller to control the environment in there. The Hybrid is a superb device and does its job perfectly controlling the temps in there. When i used to use Variacs i sometimes had to slow the fans further at light off in cold times but this Hybrid controls everything light on or off to keep a stable temp at all times. The Intake and Extraction fans controlled by the Hybrid are both 5" Rucks although the intake is not as powerful. The Hybrid did cost me just under £250 but its worth every penny in my opinion it also has a feature where every hour at only light off it will crank up the speeds of the fans one notch just to remove that extra moisture in the air that builds up at lights off, i can see this being very useful in flowering when a high RH is not good, this feature does not have to be used and the unit comes complete with a shade to cover the sensor if not required. Fans are completely silent with no humming whatsover like the Variacs. The Hybrid has solved the variable temps in the tent and this means i can leave it and forget, good thing too in summer with higher temps it will raise the fans speed on its own to keep temps stable. The growdrobe is actually a walk-in wardrobe with 3 brick walls and the door so i suppose this explains why the growdrobe runs cooler than the tent although its in the same room. The Carbon filter is a 5" Rhino Pro and everything is connected up with Phonic Acoustic ducting. A pick here of my DR90 and Air Cooled Hood connected. > And my new SMSCom Hybrid controller which fully controls the environment silently. > LIGHTING FOR TENT- SEEDLING/VEGGING. The lighting for the tent in eary veg will be a Maxibright T5 4 tube fluorescent, 96w of power (24w each tube) and measures 59cm(W), 37cm(D) and 6cm(D), on/off switch and is wired to a Maxiswitch 2-way contactor (10Amps) and Grasslin timer, i have 2 of these units and i really recommend them for vegging as the keep the plants short, give off little heat and the light spread is great, i've vegged for 3 weeks using these units in the past and the result was very stocky healthy looking plants, they seem to love the light spectrum. Later on in veg i will swap the T5's for a 250w MH then a 400w MH, after that maybe a 400w mixed spectrum HPS all in a 5" Air-cooled hood. Pic of one of my T5's setup in my main room. > So the tent is ready to go, temps at light on even under the 400w MH is no more than 26c, light off around 21c. Once vegging is nearly done the girls wil be transferred to my main growdrobe, set as below. > GROWDROBE & INTAKE/EXTRACTION. The room is a converted walk-in wardrobe, The drobe measures 3ft x 3ft 7ft and covered top to bottom in the Orca Grow film, everything is covered including the shelves and door. Easy to put up as its much stronger than mylar and almost impossible to tear, no glue or paste was used in the room as i stapled it on with a heavy duty staple gun. It's very bright in the room and the Orca is very easy to clean as spillages just wipe off being as its waterproof. Temperatures are always stable at around 27c lights on, about 22c off. Intake is a 5" twin speed Ruck fan fully controlled by a 3A 0-240v Variac and the extraction is a 5"Ruck fan with STR Voltage stepping fan controller with a 5" Carboair carbon filter connected to 90 degree bend and Acoustic ducting. Air circulation is x2 6" clip on fans. Thermometer/Hygrometer. There is a steel Scrog net i made to fit the growdrobe which will also be used this grow once the plants are in there. My growdrobe with Scrog net fitted > 3a 0-240v Variac and STR Voltage stepping controller. > LIGHTING FOR GROWDROBE- FLOWERING. Light for Flowering will be the Maxiibright 315w CMH system with the 930 Master Greenpower Agro lamp, i did used to own the 942 lamp too for veg but ths blew a few weeks ago and decided not to replace it and just veg under MH. The shade is a Maxibright Focus cmh dedicated reflecftor.(old pic, ignore the 942 lamp and shade adaptor as they are not used now) > SOIL/NUTRIENTS This grow the soil will be the Clover Multipurpose compost, only my third time using this but my previous grows had no issues so i'm going to carry on using this for now. I've used PM compost for years with great success and also used Jacks Magic successfully but found it a bit rich for some plants. Nutrients will be Intense Nutrients Organix Grow, Bloom, OG Granules, Foundation and Runzyme kindly supplied by @Intense Nutrients Matt SEEDS. The seeds used for this grow will be a single Dinafem Blueberry Cookie and a single Dinafem Ocean Grown Cookie. 5 of each of these seeds were generously sent for this comp by @Dinafem-Mark I'll only be germinating the two seeds (one of each) as i do like growing two plants in a Scrog which perfectly fills my space with 2 big pots. The other 8 seeds will be started at a later date, probably next grow if they turn out tasty. BLUEBERRY COOKIES > Blueberry Cookies by Dinafem Seeds is a feminisedcannabis seed descended from a Girl Scout Cookies and our elite mother Blueberry. Fully aware of the immense popularity of the Cookies family across the USA, our team of breeders put their hearts into creating a hybrid that would bring the amazing traits of this world-renowned strain to their limit. Born in San Francisco Bay, Girl Scout Cookies was named after her delicious uncanny scent reminiscent of freshly-baked cookies. Is there any better match for this sweet cocktail than a Blueberry with mouth-watering aromas of fresh blueberries? After a long cross-breeding process aimed at only selecting the traits that would outdo the original ones, our team of breeders has created Blueberry Cookies, a hard-hitting hybrid called to surprise the palates of hard-to-impress veterans. Morphology Blueberry Cookies grows into mid-sized plants that can reach 3 meters in optimal conditions when cultivated outdoors. Her branches are solid and her internodes are rather large, meaning light can easily penetrate the canopy and reach the lower branches giving way to evenly distributed, elongated, amazingly thick, and resin-packed flowers. All Cookies hybrids are famous for the purple nuances covering them, but this one in particular, thanks to her Blueberry side, is a spectacular display of reddish, violet, and purplish hues. Besides, with a moderate calyx-to-leaf ratio, trimming her will not be a pain in the ass. We recommend safekeeping her sugar leaves for the delicious resin on them can be used to make incredible concentrates. Expect extremely thick and heavy spiky-looking buds with large calyxes, a rarity that ordinary Kush genetics don’t generally have. She’s indeed so beautiful that even us, the Dinafem team, can’t stop staring at her. Yield Blueberry Cookies is noted for the density and weight of her buds. The best things are said to come in small packages, a saying we totally agree with. Despite their reduced size, her flowers are remarkably compact and come with a thick coating of frosty resin glands and off-the-charts aromas. Aromas and flavours The popularity of the Cookies family stems primarily from their enticing aroma and no wonder. While U.S. Kush strains just offered earthy and fuelly tastes with some coffee undernotes, the Cookies smell like pie. They’re so delicious that they make you want to take a big bite out of their dried buds. That’s why our team of breeders thought the fruity perfume of Blueberry will make the best companion. This is how Blueberry Cookies was born: a tasty fruit pie with intense nuances of wild berries dancing together in a cake-like, Indica background. While growing, buds give off a strong yet fresh fruity scent. However, after the curing and drying, it turns much sweeter, more or less like smelling pastries. Effects Coming from a U.S. family of genetics, it couldn‘t be otherwise. Blueberry Cookies delivers a crushing head and body high. Thanks to her Indica dominance and her 18% THC levels (with 0.1% CBD), this strain produces a highly narcotic and muscle-relaxing effect. Cultivation Blueberry Cookies is very easy to grow and thrives outdoors. She is incredibly vigorous, meaning she loves stretching during the growth stage. Outdoor growers will obtain bigger yields for this plant shows her full potential when grown in the open air. So, without nosy neighbours nearby, she should be put no limits. Direct sunlight will help Blueberry Cookies fully develop. There’s a big difference between a vigorous growth and a weak flower development produced by the lack of sunlight. This beautiful purplish plant, in particular, copes well with outdoor conditions. If provided with a bit of attention, a standard feeding regime, and a warm environment (also suitable for northern climates), she’s sure to produce top-quality crops by early October. Flowering wraps up in 55-60 days indoors, where we recommend using organic growing methods so as not to modify her tastes and aromas, which, along with her mind-blowing effect, are the main reason why we should all grow her this year.

The popularity of the Cookies family stems primarily from their original taste as well as from the quality and exclusive traits that have earned them a well-deserved place among the most important U.S. cannabis heavyweights along with OG Kush and Sour Diesel. And the truth is that those who try her extraordinary tastes and aromas get instantly addicted to them For that very reason, no sooner did we get our hands on an elite clone of Girl Scout Cookies than we knew something really special had to be done. And is there anything more special than crossing the most famous Girl Scout of the west coast and another Californian all-time classic as is the incredible OG Kush? From this powerful marriage comes Ocean Grown Cookies. As always, it became our obsession to bring the best Cali taste to the highest pitch of perfection. And that's exactly what Ocean Grown Cookies is: a cannabis jewel born close to the Pacific boasting the strong scent that has pushed American strains to their legendary status. Morphology Ocean Grown Cookies grows into mid-sized plants that can reach 3 meters in optimal conditions when cultivated outdoors. Her branches are thin yet solid, although using stakes during the vegging period is highly advisable for they'll let more light into the canopy and the plant will, therefore, produce more pointy and bulky buds overflowing with highly resinous trichomes. They’ll also prove useful for preventing the branches from snapping due to the weight of the flowers. This plant is the perfect blend of Girl Scout Cookies and OG Kush. With rather long internodes, she acquires a beautiful purplish colouring that makes her a sight to behold. Besides, those who find trimming a nuisance will love hearing that she presents an adequate calyx-to-leaf ratio.

Besides, those who find trimming a nuisance will love hearing that she presents an adequate calyx-to-leaf ratio. Aromas and flavours It is thanks to this that Cookies hybrids have carved out a place among the most reputed strains of all time: their tastes and scents are simply amazing. We wondered whether we’d manage to give the already incredible aromas of Girl Scout Cookies a twist by crossing her with OG Kush, another world reference for quality U.S. flavours and predecessor of GSC. We soon realised, though, that this was indeed a winning bet. That’s how Ocean Grown Cookies was born; a mind-blowing strain noted for her potency and distinctive aroma, hallmark of the west coast: a blend of earthy and Kushy scents with sweet and fruity undernotes. This strain provides U.S. cannabis enthusiasts with a breath of fresh air because she still keeps the traditional Kush background intact thanks to the OG Kush genes in her. Something in between the typical diesel scents of the U.S. family and the innovative sweet and fruity tastes, similar to those of pastries, that are killing it right now across the States. This perfectly balanced blend makes Ocean Grown Cookies a great choice for seasoned palates looking for new and surprising flavours who don’t want to give up on the intense aftertaste of Californian Kush hybrids. Effects The high delivered by Ocean Grown Cookies can only be described with one word: devastating. Her crushing THC levels of around 20% and her almost non-existent CBD content (approx. 0.1%) make her particularly powerful. Her psychoactive effect is incredibly potent, narcotic, and long-lasting. Expect a gentle blow of euphoria that goes straight to the head and turns into a nice feel of physical relaxation over time. Powerful, hard-hitting, and sedative, in true Californian style. Cultivation Despite coping well with northern chilly climates, she does prefer warm Mediterranean-like environments or greenhouses. However, given her medium size and bushy form, she’s the perfect candidate for growing indoors. By meeting her basic needs, we'll easily obtain great results with her. For the delicious taste of Ocean Grown Cookies to remain untouched, organic growing practices are highly recommended. Besides, given her Indica dominance, this jewel is not a heavy feeder, so a standard diet should suffice. This way, we’ll maximize her incredible scents. We promise: it’ll be worth it!

  4. Hello all, I'm growing in a 2. 4m long x 1.6m wide room with 2m head room. I use a wilma 8 pot xxl 200L system , my last few grows I've averaged around 30-40oz which is plentyful but we all want to improve. I've lately seen some amazing looking scrog set ups and was wondering if anyone has made a scrog net to suit this type of Wilma. I must note firstly, hour I do my res change, I remove the little plastic middle tray between the two 4 pot trays, and slide the two 4 pot trays together so I have a roughly 300mm gap at the end of the Wilma system (nearest the filter) to empty the old nutes out and pour 150l fresh nute change in weekly. I'll also need some room to walk down the one side (intake fan on floor side) for maintenance ect. So my idea was to use 2 separate net set ups for each 4 pot tray ? Getting around having to slide the one 4 pot tray into the other I could make the net set up nearest the filter could be put on some wheels so I can slide both the net and tray in sync? Never made a net frame or a scrog net, 0 experience just read a few diaries and though wow that looks to maximise yeild and quality. Guidence, diagrams, drawings.. Any thing to help I'd appreciate it... If I feel confident enough in the replies here I'm happy to get the tools out while I have some time on my hands.

  7. Hi all, First of all thanks in advance for taking the time to help me. I have a question regarding scrog training method. Everything has been going great and I am now on day 14 of flower. My question is that i am meant to be still tucking at this stage according to every guide online i can find however for some reason one of my plants started actually full on flowering day 7 and because i followed advise everywhere on the internet alot of the nodes for the flowering tops are still under the net so to clarify i have 1 node on each branch above the net full on flowering and under the net for about 2 or 3 nodes i can see flowering starting there also. My question is even though they dont appear to be stretching much should i expect the 2nd 3rd nodes of the branches to eventually make it above the net or should all 3 nodes of the branch be above the net by week 2/3? Many Thnks

  11. Hello everyone! As i am in the first week of flowering ( week 9 ) on my fourth organic soil grow I am experimenting and trying new techniques. One such technique is defoliation. I did have two very small defoliation sessions during the veg period but i was too scared to remove many leaves (not even close to 20% of each plant). I did some research and growers do defoliate during flower as well (which is something i thought was not to be done). I will attach 3 pictures so you can have an idea of what is going on in my grow tent and maybe some of you can help!

  15. I have 4 plants all the same strain (ZK) but one has outgrown the others to a point where I’ve raised the light for her but am concerned the others will be starved of light as a result. I haven’t read up on SOG or SCROG and I’ve only lightly trimmed the lower leaves recently. I’m 4 weeks in to flower so what can I do? Is bending the tall girl over an option? its my first grow and I’m enjoying it despite all the stuff I’ve yet to learn.

  18. Good morning im a long time viewer but haven’t really posted. I’m am doing my first scrog grow and 8 days into 12/12. The canopy is THICK.. lovely heads everywhere.. ive looked at lots of flowered scrogs and it appears at some point most or all of the fan leaves are removed. When do I do this, do I just do all in one go? Defoliation makes sense as at the moment u can only see heads.... little bit about the grow My 3rd grow of 4 different strains all in dwc but this time I have linked the buckets for easy empty/fill. im using general hydro nutes 1.2 by 1.2 tent in a cold location 400w and 600wHps (I know) (I did build RDWC but it was too loud) Strains are Gzkittles dark ghost train Blue Dream Amnesia Lemon Cheers Col
  19. Hi everyone, happy Friday! Usually use the rule of thumb for whatever height you have in veg, expect twice the height when finishing flower. But can someone give me some guidance on recommended heights or ratio's for how high they would setup their netting please, even if only an estimate. I turned mine into flower and the net took about 2 weeks to really get to, what stage do people bend under the tops. 2 Weeks feels a bit late, maybe I should have the net lower? I have a 2.2m tent. Top of my 25L pots stand around 0.5m off the floor. I setup my net 75cm from the top of the pot. My next tent is going to be 2m high. I know there will be variation from strain, lighting etc. But any basic guidance would be great even if its estimation.
