  1. Hi, there probably is the info somewhere, but couldnt find it but just got a couple questions regarding my first grow! i basically just found a few bagseeds, from a while ago planted 3, and 1 has actually come along really nicely! just transfeered into a bigger pot as it outgrew the first! First question is, my garden is south east facing and gets probably a solid 6 hours of direct sunlight a day, from behind some sliding glass doors, which is definitely doing the job for now. my main question is, am i headed for trouble once in the vegetative stage? ive read they requite a lot more light, some people leaving them on 24 hours of artificial light. I have a super bright LED bulb to stick in the cupboard in case, its basically 16W (equivalent to 140W halogen, 1600 lumens) it also says day light 6000k on the box (not sure what that means), is this going to help? will this be any good for flowering as well or am i best just moving it to my glass doors for the day then sticking in the cupboard. also would moving it out of a cupboard, everyday the fact its 1 cool LED negate the need for a fan? also bought 5 real deal feminized auto flowering seeds, will they be almost as simple as letting the them chill by my glass doors? Thanks and sorry if all this info is out there somewhere this just seemed simple. heres a few photos of the plant and the spaces i have to grow (just waiting for the beer to finish brewing in the bigger cupboard then gunna obviously clear it out) just for a reference. Anyway if anyone does have any reassuring words or advice to improve my success, it'd be much appreciated! Im just looking to get some nice smokeable bud without spending a fortune on kit Thanks in advance and hope everyones having a chilled, healthy time!
  2. Well with the summer fast approaching I thought I’d use up some of my seeds that I’ve had in the fridge for a while I don’t like doing autos indoors I like the photoperiods as I scrog in rdwc. I’ve gone with the following World of seeds-Afghan Kush Ryder G-13 labs-fro-yo humbolt seeds Org - Fast Flowering OGKZ Delicious seeds-Northen light blue Exotic seeds-Green gummy. I had a few others but see which of these beans pop up if any fail then I will add some more. I soaked them in water for 24 hours and today put them into root riot cubes. fingers crossed they all come up, not sure what size pots to put them into probably go with 15litres which they will go straight into from the cubes. I’ll be feeding them with plant magic oldtimer nutrients. here they are waiting patiently peace.
  3. about to start my first grow! just put a bag seed in some soil and it sprouted so thought id have a go at growing some plants properly. I bought 3 feminized autoflowering diesel kush seeds which sounded like a easy grower, and got two free auto OG blueberry seeds, but wandering what the best balance equipment to yield would be? I dont necessarily want to grow all 5 at first, maybe just 2 or 3, and don't mind not getting the biggest yields but yeh would love to be able to get at least a decent yield. I dont mind spending a bit, but dont want to want to spend loads. i do have a south east facing kitchen with big glass sliding doors which probably get about 5 or 6 hours direct sunlight everyday, but i also have a loft/cupboard under the stairs and would be willing to set up something basic if that amount of natural lights not gunna cut it. Also id rather not be using huge amounts of electricity which is why ideally any light set up would be minimal. any advice hugely appreciated! Thanks in advance
  4. is there any point in early spring when the sun basically follows the same path/height as it does in september for our sorts of lats? first year at this plot - found it in january so I never got to see the way the sun behaved in september unti september got here - Unfortunately, standing there in late sept early oct I realized I had misjudged the sun's path quite badly as most of the girls were in complete shade for most of the day caused by the lower angle of the sun getting blocked by the native plant cover. Some parts of the plot were still geting direct light - but none of them had any plants in them. Its a sensitive type of location with very few windows to get into the area unseen - so visits need to be kept to a minimum, meaning I still dont have a good enough mental map of which parts of the plot get direct sunlight at that crucial time of year so I'm wondering if there is a time in spring that will give you a fair idea of what the sun will be doing at harvest time or does it differ greatly height or vector wise? I seem to remember some one posting a link to an app for this type of thing about six months ago but my cannabis addled memory may decieve me thanks for any help peace out MM
