Well this is going to be some epic fun for the winter months  :)

 

Firstly let me say a big thank you for starting another Dinafem adventure on UK420  :)

 

Secondly 2 nice autos for you to play with and as usual 100% germination is always a nice start to a grow and hopefully a sign of things to come :)

 

You are off to a great start and needless to say I'll be along for the ride and watching with interest  :)

 

Thank you again for documenting your grow on this great platform and I'll be back in on the next update to check progress  :bong:

 

All the best 

 

Mark..

Cheers for looking in Mark. Let's see what I can do with these... I'm hoping I don't run out of space :D

Great news on the 100% germ rate dude and good to see the SD shed the husk on her own. Always a risky job taking them off. She'll soon catch the other up now. Looking forward to seeing these go in those buckets with your cling film method. I reckon it's a good one for the roots to spread quickly without adding water for a while. I'll be copying on my next indoor auto :nenenenene:

@jadenugs they went straight into the buckets, no paper towel, no pre soak, I got the seeds out and put them in their final home just like nature intended ;)

Great start and some classic strains too mate, I'll be tagging along for this run if I may :) Nice to see another clingfilm user, it's prefect for keeping humidity high and bugs the fuck out lol

 

Best of luck with these dude :oldtoker:

I've tried loads of tricks and spent a small fortune battling fungus gnats too mate....came up with my own free solution and its working a treat...... sand from the river next to me. It acts as total barrier so they cant lay their bloody eggs, I just bake in overnight in an Aga to kill any nasties from outside, did a batch of builders sand for a mate with an infected grow last night funnily enough.

@Fragg I nearly missed your post mate lol

When the clingfilm comes off, I'll dump a load of diatomaceous earth on, then cover that in pebbles (if I have enough). If that fails I have sharp sand to completely cover the top and pay resort is the gnatrol that I mentioned earlier. 

 

Going off the Diatomaceous earth labels, it should be enough on its own, but we all know nothing is guaranteed!

@beezee no worries :)

 

I gave up with DE mate as its only any good when dry and I'm a top waterer and it made a right mess lol

Well there's some kinda conflicting advice lol

 

I'll chuck the DE on then the pebbles on top of that might help with the watering???  

 

Thanks both @Happy Hippy and @Fragg

I just used to water then throw a shitload on top and the small fan blew some around so i figured it would catch anything crawling around under and beneath the pots,if i still see some at the next pot up i do the same and continue till theres almost none.works better for me than sprays and i have no pest issues in my plants hangin to dry.i only use it in veg though cos i wouldnt want it stuck to my buds.

 

I think its pretty cheap as well and also works same for mites and most creepy crawlies ime

 

peace

@Happy Hippy that makes sense, cheers. 

Your right, it is peanuts to buy so having a bit flying round the tent doesn't matter either :)

Well it's been a week since the little ones popped up and although there's not really much happening, here's an update. 

 

They're all looking healthy and have grown quite nicely. WWa #1 seems to have been drying out a little, so I've been misting the top of the compost when needed, other than that, I haven't done a thing to them :D

 

Temps are still holding steady at 22°c at pot level and rh is around 45%

I've also started another project, there's 2 evil funk pp regs in the tent. I'm hoping for at least 1 female from these that I can reverse, when I know what I've got I'll start the last 2 seeds I have to try and get another target female. @Eelhelmet will be interested in this ;)
