  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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?
  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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!

  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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!
  17. 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
  18. 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!
  19. 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
  20. How many plants could I realistically grow to harvest in a grow tent measuring 40cm x 40cm x 120cm? www.budboxgrowtents.com/budbox-lite.htm I only need the one, for me, but I'm wondering if I could comfortably grow two in there.
  21. Afternoon all Just after some information regarding the secret Jardin daisy parabolic shades, I’m currently using a adjustawing in my 1x1x2 budbox pro but thought I would upgrade everything to make environment as best a possible. Ive seen they do three sizes 60cm,80cm,100cm all from what I can see will take a 600watt bulb. I’m guessing the 100cm will be to big for my space with the negotiable pressure so have written that off. I don’t want to waste money in the 60cm if the 80cm will be much better for my space. Does anyone run these shades in my size tent? Would appreciate any information in people’s experiences. Thanks in advance.

  24. Hey guys, I ordered a cheap tent from amazon (senua i think the brand was?) Tent arrived but it's the wrong tent, some 2m x 2m monster, 18kg package was wondering why it was so fucking heavy! Literally a box full of metal poles but no tent? Anyway, the tent i had ordered was supposed to be 60x60x140. I have to go about ordering a new one now and don't want to order the same one because it will probably be a heap of shit. I wanted to take this opportunity to ask for your recommendations? Im still tempted to go the route of a growdrobe if its cheaper
