Hello folks, glad to be back.

I have been struggling in my loft grow with this neverending winter of ours. Still, here's what I'm up to at the minute...

Tent #1

DR90, 400w dual spectrum lamp, 2x greenhouse tube heaters and fan controller. Currently on the 12/12 cycle with the photoperiod plants (all fems)

Blue Velvet

Blue Moonshine

Flo

Tent #2

DR80, 400w dual spectrum lamp, 1kw mini oil radiator. Currently on 20/4 cycle with three Autofems

Auto Blueberry

Both tents have 125mm carbon filtered exhausts, and 100mm ruck intake should it be needed later.

Water is heated and bubbled in a 25l brewing bucket

Medium is Canna Coco coir

Nutes are Vitalink Grow and Bloom Hard Water, with pHdown

Measures about EC 1.5 pH 5.9-6.1

That's the facts and figures. Lets have a look at the plants.

I'm not worrying about the veg stage this time, we're going straight in on day 1 of 12/12.

Blue Velvet (Purple Thai x Afghani) is a strain I've lusted after ever since I saw her amazing purple buds in a High Times feature on DJShort. Thanks to Dutch Passion's generosity I now get the chance to try her charms.

The Blue Moonshine is related to the Velvet by the father I believe. Her mother is the Highland Thai.

Flo is Blue velvet's Sister (?) being (Purple Thai x Afghani)

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, I love to know these things.

Meanwhile, in the smaller tent we have the automatic version of the most well known member of this family. The Blueberry

Another strain I longed to try after seeing a Dutch Passion catalogue when Blueberry and Flo were first released.

One plant is six weeks from seed,one seven weeks, and one eight.

These shots show the 7 and then 8 week plants.

Welcome one and welcome all

Bring your advice, bring your slippers, and bring your own biscuits, I'll do the rest as best I can.

Whoah! Hi there folks

:B): Glad you all like the seed collection! :wink: There's 25 Dutch Passion Strains in there and another 11 from various others, there's also a box with all the single seed freebies from Attitude and assorted other seeds.

So for those who want to know, the box is a Helios Homeopathic remedies 36 pack (all the remedies were several years over the use by date and some had melted together.)

If you ask in your local independent wholefood shop, they might have spare glass bottles, or check the bargain baskets in there, there might be an out of date set going cheap! :wink:

Hiya bud, you're spot on there my man! 250 Euros :trumpet: of prize seeds and Tony and Dutch Passions hugely generous offerings over the past 6 months. You're more than welcome.

Let me put some tunes on for my guests. Appropriately...."Buzz Me" by Blue Family :dj:
