Update 30th April:

Greetings in the name of the most high, Jah :yinyang: Rastafari :bong:

How are you all doing? Praying for some good warm sun no doubt, i tink it's on its way so hang in there seen :yinyang: Me an Jah been avin words about this low temp fuckery, don't worry, coz every little ting... is gonna be alright large.ras_listening_music.gif, Jah sey 'soon come' large.ras_jahlive.gif


You got a nice spliff rolled? If not get too it then read on..... Light it up, inhale, exhale...... Lets go to the Yarden an see wattagwaan inna de yard lately shall we.......

1st up is Rude Bwoy Red Mandy Male, doin juss fine seen, starting to bust his nuts now....

Looks Irie


Banana drama, ain't too sure if this bredda is shootin blanks! Ain't see any dust from them bananas yet!


But mi a give him likkle more time seen, 48 hrs and his job should be done. When this lobster claw opens it hopefully be full, pollen is produced at maturity.


Sticky balls!!large.DSC00599.jpeg

More on Male Mandy in a few days hopefully, gonna bag & shake it when done :yinyang:


Here the Red Mandy Female in flower but re-vegging, she lost a side branch some how, so i removed the other side for symmetrical energy distribution...



Crystal Candy FV recovering from cold shock, she's much happier now, i shall likely remove the bad leaves in a week or so.


Pruned top thriving, hoping for a FIM (Fuck I Missed) mutation. You can see the fur on her main stalk, never seen such fine hair on herb before, interesting.



Critical Nev Haze Early V doin her ting, steady healthy growing.



Affidaze Bonsai Sub-Tropical Palm! Love this one!! Jah




And now fo the real exciting stuff, these amazing Auto's, im amazed so far!! Heres Auto Zkittlez loving it to the MAX!! Been hardening off, 1 week of veg left and then she flowers, crucial toughening up time, and temps are still not great outdoors, but it warm inna de green house large.ras_wink.gif


Under Mi Sensi large.ras_smokin2.gif


Anticipating the initial burst of flowering, exciting stuff! Especially this time of year!




And now Auto Runtz XL, smells so sweet already! Been training the shit out of this one as you know, check her out at 5 weeks 3days...


This pic below was taken 3 days before the one above.



When bending your Autos its important to tie the stalk securely as not to damage roots by strain or stress from bending, i got the green rubber wire secured through a hole in the pot as you can see. Also i use a training rod fed horizontally through holes in the pot and tie the main stalk down along the rod. Im keeping all the plants tips as level as i can for now.



A good knuckle in the main stalk, this will stop the plant from trying to straighten upright too much, making it easier to wrestle down and grow sideways for training.



Gettin ready for flowering.



And fo the end of the day over night they go back indoors, this is why they are doing so well :yes:



Mi Sugar Cane juss so you can see how it's doin. Sugar Cane takes 100 days from germination, much the same as Auto's :yep: Juss gotta hope it survives :yinyang:



Thats I&I done for now, see you all in the next update.


Happy Growing large.pngegg(4).png


BIG UP UK420 CREW!! NUFF RESPECT large.ras_thankyou_thumb.gif



Enjoy the Vid :yinyang:

Wednesday 5th May:

large.ras_greetings_wave.gif family, blessings and love to you all :yinyang:


Juss a 'likkle' update, nuttin' (nothing) much agwan (going on) except temperature concerns, its May?? Rassclaat could have fooled me, as we all know we are behind in time of season.

When i&i checked the weather earlier it sey temps could get to a dramatic 0 celcius large.ras_eek.gifEek-large.ras_eek.gif-A-large.ras_eek.gif-Mouselarge.ras_eek.gif (a wa-do-dem), a mi nar kno so..... what i have done is set up a likkle sumting interesting.... check it out:


A wicked parrafin heater system wooooo large.ras_wow.giflarge.ras_smokin2.giflarge.ras_fyahblaze.gif and a heat tube... and my 2 heat mats! Lucky girls! Warmer than me man!! I always put my ladys first, always, Jah bless :yinyang:





So basically, the Auto Zkittlez and Auto Runtz XL are sitting on a 23w heat mat each, on bricks on a piece of wood, off the ground seen, and then the best bit... the excess heat mat that the pots are not on is tucked under the containers handles and snugly around the pot's side that is facing the cold side wall, booya! heat tube pon the othe side of pot, paraffin (parrafin or whatever the bl**dKleet its spelled/spelt/spalt haha) generating wicked ambient temperature :yinyang:


Juss one ting..... what if mi burn down mi PVC tent with mi parra-noia-fin heater?? ???   ahahaha ima dreadlockin going to sleep tonite to be honest! BumboKlaaaattt (bleep) !! Is this a silly idea in a desperate attempt to keep my darling ladies at next best ting to Jamaican temps!? Aye aye aye large.ras_sos_help.gif



Tip Of The Day: Wipe the inside of your PVC/Glass/Other-material-house (i forget the name of it) with WASHING UP LIQUID large.ras_grin.gif and a tiny bit of water. LOOK it really works!!! but for how long....




IF temps did get to 0c tonite, i couldn't be as bad or even as facinating as last Novembers FROZEN Jamaican Dream buds.... remember remember the 5th of November, how could i forget!!
Memories...... Twinkle twinkle icey buds.......



The heat of May is apparently on our door step.... couple of days and it soon come :yinyang: But can't come quick enuff!!

Honour & Respect my dear friends, May Jah bring forth the rightous sun very very soon...

Take care, untill next time.......


Rastafari Bless :bong:


Check out the video below to warm up your soul if it gets a likkle cold for you tonite....... :yinyang:One Big Love :yinyang:

Update 10th May:


Greetings and a good day to you all, family :yinyang:

Lots of pics to get stuck into for this update. I&I will show you some tips for training and how i re-pot my autos from bio pots into final pot.


So roll up light up an let mi tek you round mi yarden.... Bless Up!! large.mlg-blunt-transparent-9.png


So 'Redman-D' has been harvested, i brought him indoors ina sunny window to finish up, as not to spread the love to my in-flower autos, seen. 



(below) Dominant red gentical bannanamans!  This reminds me just how much i wanna grow Sweet Seeds Red Strawberry Banana Auto® :wub: but mi juss cyaant get the seeds in the UK yet sadly large.ras_sad.gif ah well, i gots mi Runtz XL Auto so evting Irie still large.ras_smokin.gif



Say goodbye to Redman D large.ras_bike_thumb.gif  Pleasure doin bizniz with ya bredren! Travel Well, R.I.P Red Rasta SoulJah large.ras_cheers.gif



The brutal remains.... Banannarama Drama lol



And the ashes.... urm.. Redman-D urr.. spunky funk dr spunk :huh::puke:lol (and i gots to handle it lol )  Narr it's good stuff man, all the fuckery (mischeif) i can cause with strains now... bumboclot! I got red genetic pollen now, maybe i breed some maaad ting one day and let you folks try it! Rastafari :bong:



Keif sieve box to collect pollen, makes sense :yinyang:


All pollen is now stored in a little brown air tight 2ml glass vial in the fridge for freshness seen! Propa chillin :yinyang:


Now Jah Yarden Garden.... Critical Nev Haze Early Version ready for plant up...



Come mek we plant up Jah herbs, not a soul him a disturb, mi plantin for the healing of the nation, its mi only occupation! One Love :yinyang: 1st one of the year in Jah ground :toot:

with a wicked slug collar protector, haha eat my locks slimey slugs! The war on slugs is OVER!! now nobody haffi dead!! (has to die) :yinyang:



This is the old auto outdoor set up, served i very well indeed. It don't look like this now tho.... i also dashway (removed) the paranoiafin heater, damn ting stick chronic!! No tanx! Don't want that smell inna mi herbs!



Sub's Tropixx has been sweeeet reggae temps thoughout the cold April..... 21c is perfect for ganja, so dem seyso.....



Auto Zkittlez 6 weeks old, juss buss into flower, stinks already, really sweet... she now lives outside permanently and lovin it :yinyang:




Auto Zkittlez


Auto Zkittlez




Auto Runtz XL 6 weeks training (3 days behind Zkittlez but flowering same time)



When training, i always tuck my light blocking leaves out of the way, never cut them off, ever! Only on my auto's. With my Photos i chop leaves off! By tucking the leaves away you let heaps of light onto the new shoots which really need it while training to keep even formation of the canopy to help create even length and sized colas (hopefully, they can wrestle alot).




so now you see watta gwaan right.... try it if you train any auto :yep:





Runtz XL flowers 9th May


well 'appy init :thumsup:



The PVC greenhouse is now the autos crib, no more heating, in the hands of JahJah now, with one exception the Auto Runtz XL is still going in and out of the grow tent in the garage coz i want to test my lights for flowering, so she be in an out throughout flowering.




Auto Robocrop (Cream Of The Crop) did not make it, any of them, all bloodclat 3 of them, mi vexed! Tiny crap seeds, what can ya say! Bumboclaat thats what! 

Auto Cash Crop (Cream Of The Crop) only had 1 seed, did not make it. Bumboclat!

Auto Extreme (Dutch Passion) only 1 of 3 survived, at least i got 1. Not so bumboclat.

All the rest made it.

Auto Moby Dick XXL (Dinafem) almost didn't make it, had to bring it back from the dead, literally, got it's head stuck when popping up, had the inner seed film stuck on it too, half in the soil, it seemed to have broke it's neck, but i propped it up ever so carefully and freed up her head, what a mess she was in! she's was so stoned already!! lets hope she grows big, so far she looking good, more on that in future updates.
Auto Gorilla Glue (Fast Budz) only 1 seed of that, she got in a stoned muddle too, film stuck again, but she pulled through, juss a bit behind the others, hope she don't stunt.





>>>> How I Re-pot My Auto's From Bio Pots To Final Pot: <<<<


If it don't interest you, it's blessed, this is juss for those who may wonder or wanna know how, some have asked me, so here is...


1st, i don't recommend these bio pots for guerilla growing in respect to transportation to your plot, plastic pots for guerilla seen :yep: these bio pots are soft and will crumple in your backpack, don't do it.


Simply dig a hole in your final pot, put your pot in and make the soil levels match unless you bury plant a bit deeper if they have stretched a bit, the buried stem will then grow roots and all will be well.



Take pot out, now sprinkle magic dust (mycorrhizal fungi/root grow), im using my prize from winning Cream Of The Crop in 2020, Ontense Nutes (site sponsers) OG Inoculant Granules :notworthy:



IMPORTANT: You MUST drench the bio pot first with water and have a joint and let it soak for 5 mins or more, it will hold the soil together so it doesnt all fall apart when removing the pot, and it softens the bio pots so they tear eazy, if your soil falls apart it WILL STUNT your plants very badly.


Gently, slowly and carefully pull the bottom away with two fingers and thumb or what ever is comfortable for you, no roots are showing, good, i will get maximum potential from my autos.



Carefully put bio pot back in the hole and again carefully peel away the pot.....


Then give it a little wiggle and it comes off eazy seen.....


ahh yes there we go, job was perfect for every auto :yinyang:


Now just back fill the hole but don't press the soil hard, juss very gently. Now water and enjoy the ride. Peace of piss right!



Why not juss bury the bio pots? you can do that, but i don't, don't want my rootz getting any delays in life so i take the pot right off. Burying is to easy :geek:

Plastic pots? yeah use them too if you choose, but i don't for garden auto's, same as above, no delay in mi rootz seen.



Other tingz inna de yarden:


Re-vegging Red Mandy, smells divine!! Ahhh the smell of bud in the... SPRING!?!! Wicked!!



Crystal Candy FV - FIMM (fuck i missed) topping/pruning technique. Multiple shoots instead of two shoots, FIMM seems to work well for me.



More Sweets.... Photo plants....




Sugar Cane is doing good so far cheers brudda, on the windowsil for safe measures, will be re-potted and outside soon large.ras_wink.gif



Some 'Menthol' Mint




Some 'Grapefruit' Mint. I have lots of mint, i like the 'Chewing' Gum mint i got, Banana Mint is also delicious, but so is the Chocolate Mint, and the Strawberry Mint, ah shit then theres the Pineapple Mint, and not to mention 'Hillarys Melons' Mint haha!! Mint tea madness. Ital (healthy) is Vital!!large.6095d58b2bb25_May8th2021(23).jpeg


and at the end of a long day, (and night posting this ha) i&i (me and Jah) bid you all a blessed evenin, untill next time.... its all getting exciting from now on, some BUD shots in next update!!!!

Much peace &&& LOve to the world!! Stay blessed :yinyang:

Loving the diary. In the greenhouse I’ve got two small banana plants (£2.49 each in Lidl, bargain) and they look really good. Also have scotch bonnet, hot banana and hot fajita chillis on the go plus 2 normal sweet pepper plants. It’s good having some stealth plants to hide my ganja grow that’ll have some produce at the end.
