  1. Hi, What’s the general consensus when it comes to heat vs light? I can hold a temp of around 28c if the light is dimmed or around 32c on full
  2. Really happy as Seeds arrived today courtesy of @Dinafem-Mark and @Intense Nutrients Matt Thank you very much gentlemen. grow diary time! I'm going to be growing them in a 1.2m tent with a 600w HPS. (Clip fans, etc.) I'll be doing three of each variety. Three OGJ and Three OJ. Six total, Alongside three sweet seeds speed autoflowers I will be doing a seperate diary for the sweet seed autoflowers to show each respective variety off better. Best of luck everyone. May the best man win!
  3. Hi grower, I have a normal silver lined 80x80 tent but want to upgrade to a 1.2x1.2 or 1.2x2.4... to be honest 1x2x2 would be best but cant seem to find that as a tent measurment.. I want to go white walled but can only find budbox and homebox with them, budbox zips look cheap and nasty and the homebox looks slick but bit on the dearer end , any other alternatives?
  4. Hello all, I posted ups a thread a few weeks ago but it got massively off topic and I have had time to do some more research. Previously I have grown 8 plants (Autos) in soil in a converted walk-in wardrobe under 2 x 600w HPS. I have since moved and it would be better suited to go inside a tent so was wondering the best size to go for?: 2 x 630w (dual) CMH lights? I was thinking around a 1.2m x 2.2m x 2m tent? Thats giving me room for 8 plants with the reservoir outside the tent? Or would 2 x 315w be enough? 1 x 630w (dual) CMH light in a 1.2m x 1.2m x 2m tent allowing 4 plants and the reservoir outside the tent also? Or would 1 x 315w be enough? Secondly, I'm stuck between the Alien RDWC or the Alien Easyfeed? Cost isn't a factor, what matters is quality, ease or grow and speed really. Like I said, I'm happy to pay extra for the RDWC plus I don't need to deal with loads of soil either. Lastly, for the above two tents, what size RDWC or Easyfeed pot size would be best? I was thinking around the 20litre mark? Cheers
  5. Recently got one of these. Couldn't find many reviews beforehand despite it being a 5yr or so old design, so thought I'd post a quick one for reference. Good Poles are pretty strong, despite only being 16mm they are quite thick and click together nicely. No plastic corners or ends. Feels like it can safely hold more than my previous secret jardin dr90 v2.5, but less than a mates Gorilla tent (best tent I've seen in person though the green qubes look pretty good too). Powder coated, which is nice, if completely unnecessary. Tent skin feels pretty durable and seams are well stitched. Reinforced corners. Very well light proofed*. Viewing window. Obviously not needed and quite high up, works for how I grow my plants though.. Kind of dumb really but I'm trying to populate the good section here .. 3 side access (can all be open at once for putting nets in, moving trays, etc). Groundsheet style floor material (appears to be completely water proof and will probably deal with the inevitable odd spill etc better than normal tent material). Probably more easily torn too though.. Bad Layout: *There are only 4 tubed ports, 2 (8") are are high up (intake and outtake for cooltubes, as if anyone uses them anymore), and another (8") is in the roof. The only tubed ports in the lower part of the tent are a 6" and a 2" or so for cables. This means that unless you are using an active intake you have to use the mesh intake panels on either side, which are not remotely light proof. Rendering the impressive overall lightproofing basically pointless. I know some people run their extraction fans out the roof, but most peeps I know use the side ports, and as the 2 side ports on this have zips for access around them, they are rendered useless when you use them to run the extract though.. Zips: Anyone who's had one of the older budboxes probably doesn't anymore, because the zips all broke. At least that was my experience.. I also know a guy who cleared a grow shop out of their returned tents, and they were mostly budboxes with broken zips . I think the zips on this one are larger, but I'm not convinced they are any better. 5 zips is also just unnecessary and a bit of a pain for me, though I can see why some might find the 3 sided access useful, I think closed 1 zip designs are way less prone to breaking. These zips are also absurdly loud. They don't have any rubber-type backing and the zip-teeth material seems to be plastic and consequently the tent is basically a zip-subwoofer. As in I have to spend multiple minutes undoing the main zip, and then I usually leave it open until I've given them their last watering of the day because of the lack of intakes.. Corners: Basically they are quite sharp, and roughly capped. This makes me seriously doubt the durability if taking it down regularly. My previous dr90 was basic, but the smoothly rounded plastic corners meant it lasted nearly 10 years and being rebuilt at least 30 times.. And the zip still works fine.. Mylar: Basic hammertone, not the better diamond mylar you get in most newer premium tents (even some cheaper ones like Mars). Feels pretty robust though, probably more durable than the stuff in many budget tents. Spill tray: For some reason it's designed to be slightly smaller than the tent, so it sits taut a few cm from the walls. Maybe I'm missing why but it only seems to serve as a place for water to go when you miss with your watering can.. Poles: Why black? It's probably only a % or less, but why make a highly reflective tent, and then paint the poles black? Overall Way better tents to be had, especially nowadays. Generally quite basic and uninspired, not much thought into the layout, limiting user applications. Just a simple upgrade on an old design. Absolutely up to the task though, especially if noisy zips aren't a bother, you don't expect to have to rebuild it often, and you have an active intake or grow in a dark room.
  6. So ive had my grow pretty under control until today outdoors its mad hot and tomorrow its meant to be worse, my tents gone from a nice 24 -29 to 35c!!!the plants look okay and ive put a humidifier and opened every bloody window/door to try get some heat disipitation around the tent but id like to see if anyone else has struggled with this and what they did? Im not going to LST OR water or anything during this they got water yesterday and i dont want to burn their roots or stress them anymore than the heat has, should i raise my HPS light to counter this? Its a complete unknown and lesson for me, all help is appreciated!
  7. So ive seen tents with shiny silver and tents with white walls, i couldnt really find much info on how they differ, if anyone has some info or idea to why they are different itd be helpful Thanks
  8. Afternoon everyone, as it's my birthday in a few days and I'm stuck at home self isolating, I thought I'd treat myself to a Budbox Pro 100x100x200 with white reflective walls. I'm awaiting delivery of some Gelato auto grains. I've already got a few started outside (they're thriving off all this sunshine but a bit leggy); there's a Zkittles auto and a GSC auto. I'm going to put 2 Gelato, the Zkittles and the GSC inside. I did an unsuccessful grow last year which turned hermo because my mate kept looking in at the wrong times. So I've already got a 5" Kaisen extractor hooked up to a Rhino Pro 5". Also have a 5" intake fan that I've stuffed inside a length of ducting for air intake. I'll be doing a grow diary in the relevant section once it's all set up and the grains arrive. In the meantime check out some pics. Peace
  9. Hello all, I posted a similar question a few weeks ago but the thread went very out of topic so thought I would ask again in the lighting section. i have previously grown 8 in soil before in a converted walk in wardrobe but with 2 x Lumatek 600w HPS and all was good with the grows. This time I’m investing in some CMH lights, tent and RDWC (first time) setup (Alien). Looking to grow 8 in 20ish litre pots. So I’m either looking to do the following if the space is correct or what size tent and lights do I need? This is pretty much what I was thinking and also posted in the Hydro section but it’s more suited in here or environment I guess? 2 x 630w (dual) CMH lights. I was thinking around a 1.2m x 2.2m x 2m tent? Thats giving me room for 8 plants with the reservoir outside the tent? Or would 2 x 315w (Single) CMH be enough? I could throw in a few corner LED lights also maybe or perhaps 3 x 315w (single) CMH lights? 1 x 630w (dual) CMH light in a 1.2m x 1.2m x 2m tent allowing 4 plants and the reservoir outside the tent also? This isn’t ideal really as would like 8 on the go to be honest. I’m not fussed about the cost really, just want quality, ease of growth and speed. With regards to the CMH, what are the better brands? Like I have mentioned, looking for dual ones ideally with the ballast built into the hood but being built in is not essential. Cheers all, Hop
  10. Hi, so ive done a lot of reading about 250w hps height and i have got multiple sources saying 2 - 3foot from canopy and the same amount saying 8 - 12 inchs from canopy.. This is the only bit of information i can not find any reason to either of the advised heights, can anyone please shed some light on this?
  11. Hi guys, i'm in veg on day 12 now on a hso gorilla breath in a 10l soil pot (might start a diary soon to help others as well as myself) and its growing pretty fast under my hlg quantum board and i'm already on 3 nodes with the 4th just starting. I'm looking to yield the most bang for my buck as i use weed in either my vaporizer or also in edibles for my pain management and have found it to be the only actual effective natural medicine that i've tried, meaning that i only need around 2-3 ounces a month and i know that this small tent won't exactly cut it but at least it saves me money long term. Is the best way to go about filling the tent up for yield to top now and then begin low stress training the main branches? also do i have to wait a week for it to heal before doing this? I have looked around and have come across many different answers on the topic and thought that it would just be better to ask on here for a better opinion in my situation with such a small tent as this forum has been extremely useful in gaining knowledge Cheers you guys
  12. Using a 3500k rspec board on my first tent set up ever and want to know what i should dim the board to and how far it should be from the pot. I was thinking of dimming to 100w for the begining and slowly increasing from there to 150w in flower? Thanks any help in kindly appreciated
  13. Hi there plant warriors! So my autos have been through the blender a bit. Bit of over then under feeding, some calmag Def (using rain water with biobizz) fungus gnats plus colder roots than I'd like at times (roots temps okay now). I've got lots of damaged fan leaves due to this, I'm 5- 6 weeks out from harvest should I defoliate fan leaves that look half n half green/damaged to increase light penetration or carry on as I have and only take em off when they're ready to just fall away? I know this ain't ideal but it's supprisingly full of nice bud sites across the tent and getting to end of stretch. There was a point where I thought all was lost but they're tough ole buggers. Thanks to anyone with that knowledge in the can.
  14. Will an 80 w greenhouse tube heater do the trick? Should I put it over my intake vent inside tent or should I place it in middle(ish) of tent? Since the girls have gotten bigger my light is way higher and not heating my Lower area so well, just watered with nice luke warm water and run off was wayyyyy cooler. Could explain why they're suddenly taking longer to drink and looking grumpy. They're in stretch, thought they'd be guzzling atm. This loft life is one tricky mofo learning curves all over the shop! Thanks for any 2p's worth that might be floating about!

    From the album Budbox

    Afternoon everyone, as it's my birthday in a few days and I'm stuck at home self isolating, I thought I'd treat myself to a Budbox Pro 100x100x200 with white reflective walls. I'm awaiting delivery of some Gelato auto grains. I've already got a few started outside (they're thriving off all this sunshine but a bit leggy); there's a Zkittles auto and a GSC auto.

  19. can somebody tell me if tent shape is an important factor? i want to get a rectangular based tent (120x60x180) because it fits better in my room but I'm worried it might not be as efficient as a square based one...thanks
  20. Just a quick one I’m looking a getting a dehumidifier for by budbox xl 1.2x1.2x2 there seems to be so many on the market of both compressor/desiccant I’m lost at which to get need it to bring my humidity down by about 20% as I’m 3 weeks into flower and swinging between 64/72% will a small unit do the job or do I need in invest in a larger unit? thanks in advance.
  21. Afternoon all, Today's the day i'm going to chop my first DWC - HSO The New . Obviously i want to get amazing results so i want the best environment available for drying. Current tent environment is : Temps - 17ºc > 21ºc RH - 50-65% - with dehumidifier on it brings it down to 55% but increases temp to 22-3ºc. This is with the extraction set to 40% which is too much for drying. I have lowered extraction to 10% to see if that increases RH and so far it's staying steady 61% RH & 20ºc daytime and around 17ºc night time. Anything else i should be looking out for??? I read not to put a fan in the tent as it'll dry the buds out too quick. I have a few bug colas and wanna avoid getting bud rot etc so wondering it's best to put the bigger colas by the intake or in the middle of the tent to get an even dry? Trim the big fan leaves off? How much? All of them? Also read not to remove the leaves as it'll dry out too quick? So many questions Any advice would be appreciated! Much love!
  22. Hi Guys First time grower looking for advice please. I’m planning on putting a 120x120x180 loft tent in a loft, the loft has Humidity levels of RH 80-95% depending on the temperature. Now I know the humidity being this high is a problem but would I be right in thinking, that if I intake air from a bedroom below ,with humidity around 50%, directly into the tent, that this would keep RH in the tent at a more suitable level? has anyone else had this issue or does anybody have any solutions? thanks in advance
  23. Hey Guys, just got a greenbox tent off Amazon, its 40 x 40 x 120. Been researching for the past few weeks for a quiet inline fan and good carbon filter for the tent for a small grow. Was trying to find one thats pretty quiet because its close to the room where I sleep. Theres a lot of mixed reviews out there of various fanned filter setups, I was hoping to get some opinions of what you guys think would work best for this tent size? thanks in advance!
  24. Hi everyone! This is my first grow and I'm pretty much obsessing over every little thing These are 4 days old and I'm just wondering if they look ok and conditions in tent are good enough? I'm running 24/0 Appreciate any input/thoughts
