  1. So here we go again, this is indoor grow number 6...ish? The seeds... (All Autos) 1 x Fantasmo express (freebie left over from last grow) 2 x Frosty Geleto (freebies left over from last grow) 1 x RQS Royal Jack 1 x RQS Royal Creamatic Only really got room for 4, so we will see what pops and take it from there. Same set up as before but i have now bought a thermostat for the heat mat. (set at 21c) 240w Dimmable quantum board LED 2 speed extraction Heat Mat and thermostat Canna terra pro soil mix Fabric air pots Biobizz root juice, fish mix and Cal mag. 21st February Seeds did 12 hrs in water then put into home made toilet roll seed trays, then put straight into the final pots. Soil temps are a steady 20 - 21c thanks to the thermostat, the last few grows i had been using a timer with the heat mat so this takes the guess work out, much easier! Drobe temps around 22c (using the light for heat) only using extraction twice a day for 15mins to retain the heat as its still damn cold in me shed! Humidity around 60%
  2. Hi and welcome to another year of Sweet Seeds fun in my little corner of the world near London. I have been growing in a 10x8 shed at the far end of the garden. The back 1/3rd of the shed is partitoned off and insulated with 10mm foam and double bubble metallic insulation foil - All staple gunned to the shed walling. There is an 8" acoustic box using phonic ducting to extract the air from the partitioned grow area into the rest of the shed - Not directly outside, the shed door is lame with a 1/2cm gap all the way around it and this has served well in ensuring decent fresh air exchange without the loss of all that lovely warm air which keeps the grow area a lush 25-32 depending on what power I set the lights or extraction to. There is an 8" passive intake hole within the shed to the grow area. With the lights I have two ballasts with simple reflectors, 275w-660w and a 400w-1100w but I have been and shall continue to run them at 400w each for the veg cycle. The bulbs are Sylvania blue for veg and first two weeks of flower then its on to using the Sylvania dual spectrum bulbs. I shall be sticking with the BioBizz stuff with the addition of Plagron Batmix for the final pot up. i have been using the following: Rootjuice, Grow, Fishmix, Bloom, TopMax, Alg A Mic. Well I think that's the main points of the setup, now to let you know they just went in to 12/12 I took some clones from the last grow I did which was associated with last years Sweet Seeds Grow Competition and so I have 4 Green Poison and 5 Sweet Cheese. Here they are from back on November 3rd all pushing roots and ready to pot: Sweet Cheese at the top, Green Poison beneath. And here they are in their first pots in my little 40x40x180cm tent which I also have within the shed - This has a 125w CFL, no fans, no real intake or outake. I dumped one of the Green Poison, you can see which one above didn't get potted I'm sure Fast forwards two weeks of them being in this tent here they are: I needed to keep them in this tent as long as possible due to my grow area being full of their parents and more. I also had Gorilla Girl in there and now kick myself for not having taken clones from this also considering how awesome a smoke it is - I have been smoking it this past two weeks and its brilliant! Sweet Cheese and Green Poison are lovely smokes also but I just found a preference for Gorilla Girl... Fast forwards some more to 14th December, they have been repotted into BioBizz All mix (I only add plagron batmix when going into the final 11 litre pots) and they are now in the main grow area: Along the way I have been topping them, lots. All the lower growing tips removed as early as possible, really only allowing the best branches to grow and keeping things all tights on height. 24 hours lights on! Moving on to some time later in December things are taking off: And then bringing us to today where I have just set the lights to 12/12: Green Poison 4 are on the left, the other 5 are Sweet Cheese. I will take the time to put up a few shots without the red ambience from the bulbs, plus some bud shots from their mothers since I have a couple of bags full Until then sweet smokes, I shall mostly be smoking Gorilla Girl and waiting on my competition seeds which are Gorilla Girl, Sweet Amnezia Haze & Sweet Pure CBD - This one I will be doing for my two friends in need.

  3. Welcome to my new thread which will be used to document my fun goings on down the back end of the garden for the remainder of this year. Current status: The Sweet Seeds competition has ended and I have a variety of plants in various stages, plus competition-winnings-seeds to germinate. A Cream Caramel clone who nearly died months ago, was waterlogged and took forever to root, the others were fine but this one I have nursed and nursed - Now she has rooted, taken off and I have topped her twice and had some bonsai type fun. I hope she will, in the end, bring nice large half metre long sticks of lush sticky buds: The Cream Caramel clones which did take off well, there were three, are well into flower, I think week 6 is now completed, could be week 7 I am unsure. There is also a single Cream Manderine which rooted well but its other 3 failed to take, so on the left side of my shed I have these four ladies: There are also four smaller Cream Caramel clones nestled in the middle of the shed between the larger Cream Caramels and my new Crystal Candy ladies which were sprouted from seed when I made the original clones. Here are the Crystal Candy ladies, I tried some LST but they were just unwieldy and two grew real high and fast for the sky Here is the largest bud forming up well: Since all of the above are a month from being cropped I have put on some new seeds, Sweet Cheese (on the left), Green Poison (middle row), Gorilla Girl (right side): Here they are in the tent, I had to take out one of the four legs to fit the box in as it is too big but with some black awning covering it - No light escapes. That's just a 125w CFL to keep them happy during night time. During the day the box is moved into the garden to get the best the sun has to offer That's where I am at right now. Fingers crossed ! So my setup is 2 x 400w Sylvania bulbs, not dual spectrum, brand new. Biobizz All Mix soil. Biobizz nutes: Grow, Bloom, Fishmix, TopMax, AlgaMic, RootJuice.
  4. So I have a Bay 6 XL loft tent running a Telos-0008 and only currently have a 4" extraction fan sucking through a Ox carbon filter. I am looking to upgrade my ventilation system and having a intake fan paired with a fan speed controller to keep the environment dialled in. I am considering venting into a box buried underneath the shed filled with woodchips and some kind of oil or smell neutraliser, as im paranoid that my Sticky Beast Autos are going to stink to high heaven come flower ripening time and my neighbours are going to suss me out. Has anyone ever done something like this before ? Im hoping that if I rig it up properly and get a decent fan system inside the tent and outside in the shed venting down the same ducting into the box and then out into the underneath of the shed I can kill a lot of the odour and stay stealth - thoughts please?
  5. Welcome to my little part of the world, please do pull up a comfortable seat and sit back to enjoy my offerings for your viewing pleasure. Firstly, I must express my continued thanks and appreciation to the Sweet Seeds team, @Sweet Seeds-tommy, @Sweet Seeds -Jaypp, and all the rest of the gang who make the magic happen for the rest of us ! Last year, I was the lucky winner of the Sweet Seeds 2017 Best Video, I have the trophy in pride of place in my living room, can't for the life of me get a good photograph of it as its glass with white etching on it, will try again later.... This year I will be doing a timelapse of a Cream Devil, from seed to harvest. I have my fingers crossed for many shades of red towards the end of the video to give it that wow factor, we will see ! As I am mid project at the moment I will be starting my main grow for the competition around the 2nd week of December, this will be a wide variety of Sweet Seeds offerings : So, that is me committed, the ball is rolling, tomorrow I shall set up the 40 x 40 tent with a 125 CFL for the Devil Cream. Get the camera all set up, and hopefully next weekend I will have a little 20 second video to show you of her popping out of the soil Until then, keep safe and have sweet smokes
  6. Hi all Im in week 7 of flower and my shed grow stinks, I have a filter and that's blowing out clean air but the smell is escaping though the slats in the shed walls I don't think I have any choice other than to empty my room take the clading off and visqueen the walls before refitting it all ....nightmare Does anybody know another way i could combat the smell? someone i know mentioned a de-ironizer is this something anyone is using? I really don't want to strip my grow out if i can avoid it but still have another 4 week left then drying which i imagine is the smelliest stage Thanks in advance for any advise
  7. Hi I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with venting their exhaust under the shed? I've been searching through the forum and cant actually find out enough info on how to do it and how much it will reduce the sound of air passing out. Also, if anyone has any experience in venting under the ground (as in digging a hole for the exhaust ducting to go into) please let me know. Thanks
  8. Hello all I have recently got my grow up and running but not sure if I've missed something any pointers would be great My setup is...... 6ft x 3ft space in shed I have a pallet with storage heater bricks on it and 2 x tube heater in pallet controlled by a timer coming on for 15mins per hour lights off and 15mins per 2 hours lights on my root temps are 23 lights on 20 lights off I have an Inkbird controller for canopy height temps which turns a oil heater on for heat and the fans on for cool fans are venting outside and drawing from outside temps set for 26 and this method is keeping that temp lights on or off I also have a Inkbird controller for the humidity which is set to 60Rh with a humidifier in one socket and a dehumidifier in the other......the dehumidifier has not had to work yet (I think down to fans clearing air when temps go up) Humidity goes from 65Rh max down to 30Rh when fans kick in again humidity sensor is at canopy level I have my humidifier pointed at my oil filled radiator I have an oscillating fan which is on another timer set to come on 20mins in morning and 20mins at night I have this pointed at the back of my oil filled radiator so blows warm are and the humidifier outlet towards my babies Temps go up as this happens which in turn brings on my extract/inlet fans I have 2 x 600W LED viparspectra lights side by side 22inch above canopy on 18/6 at the moment I have planted in B & Q Verve mulitcompost and so far only given water My fans are 4inch on a speed controller
  9. I have a shed grow going and are finding spiders in there....probs the heat/humidity and its a garden shed Should I be worried about garden spiders? can they harm my crop?
  10. Good mornings Uk420, Firstly a big thank you to panik for cutting me in on this, appreciated, thanks. I have germed a pair of pips, and they have popped up lovely, I thought I took a picture last night, but unfortunately I have not, I’ll put one on shortly. As these are regular I am going to take my time to find a mum, possibly even a dad. cheers.Jj
  11. Right then, firstly I would like to say thanks to @panik for the opportunity to grow some of his new cross. I put 4 in a jar of water to soak, about 6 hours later they had all sunk, so I prepared some root riots and in they went, placed onto a heat mat for 24 hours and have started to pop up. Just a standard simple no thrills grow, I'll probably flower in 3.5 pots of coco, with AN a&b. The veg will continue for approx 8/9 weeks. Ill be back with more pics next time cheers.Jj
  12. Right first off, Thanks to @Dinafem-Mark for the opportunity to run these beans. They turned up this morning so I have wasted no time at all as there are 2 of each currently floating in little jar bowl things. Once sunk to the bottom, I will put them into little root riots in a lunch box on a heat mat, probably indoors, just till they poke their little heads out, then it will be into the veg box, in approximately 9weeks my flower room will/should be empty, so I am looking at a 8-10 week veg, depending how this goes I might flower in 3.5 again, i will see how it goes, Feed will be AN, A&B, formulex for the roots and a bit of bone meal/blood worm dust on pot up, oh yeah and in coco of course. Ill be back with more pics as soon as they have popped up, cheers Jj
  13. Hi, I have my shed all set up and my grow is in motion, however, as I draw nearer to cropping time I am becoming increasingly paranoid. When I chop the crop I have 2/3 of the shed available to me to work in as the other 1/3 is partitioned off at the back with doors for the grow. I think I want to cover the inside front door of the shed somehow with something to assist in keeping my cropping smell in the shed. It is 8ft long and I suppose 8ft tall. Am thinking some kind of mylar sheeting thing I can roll up to the top when not needed, then rolled down to cover the inside front. I am not very practically minded in DIY stuff so the simpler the better Thanks !
  14. Welcome to my new diary ! I shall be trying out a long slow grow with organic ingredients. All my Sweet Seeds ladies are clones from my competition run, I have just popped 5 Ugorg Blues and they are also in the tent but I shall not be concentrating on them in this diary, they will be in the background The soil I have to hand is clover, I'm not sure this is 100% organic but thats what they have all started in for the moment. I am getting a couple of bags of biobizz all mix for the next potting up in a week or two. I am mixing in Guanokalong powdered batpoo, a bit of volcanic rock dust, some additional Mycorrhizal Fungi, a generous serving of ecothrive charge, and finally some additional plagron worm humus. For additional fertilisers I shall be using Canna Rhizotonic (yup it's organic), BioBizz Fish Mix and Biobizz Bloom. I dont think there will be a need for grow, we will see. There are two Jack47's which came from a very healthy branch and big sticks of bud making mother, the mother was small but did really well so I am in the process of lots of LST and topping. They both have about 16-20 main branches on the grow - I intend to have to Jack47 trees, they may get topped once more yet. The plants are enjoying being manipulated, they are thriving as you will see below. The Sweet Cheese and Sweet Skunk clones I have one of each, they are survivors from their wicks not sucking up water whilst I was away on vacation. They will catch up with the jacks, but for now they just have 4 -6 growing tops happening. There are 5 x Urgorg Blues babies I have just moved into the tent also. If I can get the work done on my new shed everything will be transferred to there giving me much more space to grow. Thats the plan ! Heres a couple of pictures for now A closer look at Jack47
  15. shed

    Soo this isn't me asking whether or not to grow in a shed or how to.. More bouncing some ideas of you's Soo I was running two tents in my last house (flower&veg) only 1m2 budbox's but we've massively down sized for the moment and the only place I can grow is this shed.. The plan. Shed is approx 1.5/1.9 wide and 3m deep.. More like a summer house to be fair Soo first things first I'm going to weather proof paint it inside and out, then seal every join and gap.. With caulk? (as advised by the Internets) then once we have a sealed room I've got a recess of about 28mm on all walls and ceiling. Going to buy around 17. 1m2 heat/fire blankets and staple them to walls and ceilings. Then a couple of sheets of 15mm cellotex or Kingspan to fill the remaining void before boarding the walls and ceiling with mdf and again once the mdf is in it will be sealed again. The floor will have some underlay and carpet. Next will be chopping up my older tent (my second or 3Rd grow brought a real shit 1.5x1.5x1.8) this I'm probably going to have to staple to the walls/ceilings aswell as I don't think I'll have the room for polls. Do I sack the tent off and just paint the walls white? In regards to getting shot of the heat my original idea was to run a 10" duct under the garden back to the house wall (this is how I'm going to get power to the shed aswell) and fashion it to look like the gas flu? What would be better? Still unsure of growing media.. Kinda leaning towards a wilma system or similar although I have no experience with hydro.. But from what I've read there's less pests? My last couple grows was coco and prior to that soil Any advice or input is greatly appreciated
