Brief introduction

18 posts in this topic

Hey, hope everyone is well!

I’m new to this forum, been growing for a couple years now and still getting to grips with everything and up until more recently most of my crops have turned out to be rubbish.

 

anyway I wanted to join a forum so I could ask UK based like minded growers their opion on things as and when I need the advice.

 

so I’ll thank you all in advance for any help and advice I receive in the future.

Hey welcome both.

 

I haven't been here too long myself in the grand scheme of things but can confirm the peeps on the forum are really nice and helpful.

 

Happy to have you on board and looking forward to seeing some of your grows in the future.

Spider mites a couple of times, then was getting really airy buds the next, then last time I noticed they were looking a little ruff, so while fault finding I checked the run off to find that although I was feeding with a ph of 6.5, it was coming out at 4, so I flushed, but still couldn’t manage to get it above 5.5.

Then after drying, and trimming, it all started to loose it’s smell and go a bit dark but not rot or mould.

Put it all in a big glass jar with a couple boveda packs to raise the humidity to 62% hopefully that’ll sort it!

thats where I am now.

Well I’m using boi bizz allmix, shoguns full range at the moment, room that’s 7x4 not using full area yet! 10” extraction, 8”intake, 6 660w halogens, and a fan controller which keeps temps to around 27c, no humidity control, unsure what to use and where to get it from! 

Hand feeding approximately every 3 days, keeping the cf level to the recommended by shogun chart.

im using a pesticide once a week as a preventative measure, pyrethium but prefer mighty wash, however mighty wash is way more expensive so tend to use the pyrethium diluted.

 

trying to think if there is anything else but I’m drawing a blank.
