  1. Just a quick question really. I want to move into a 6 pot IWS flood and drain system, not because I love hydro, but because I love going away in my camper van with my weed... If I used an IWS system with the culture pots and coco, could i use coco nutes? I can't be bothered with all the adjustments and shit to be fair. I dont understand EC, and not really interested in doing so. My interest is in the simplicity of growing the weed in the summer, and in the winter I go back to loving my grow, when I have the time... I want to use coco nutes because apart from PH, I dont have to do anything with them. If they look light in colour, I can add stuff locally and individually to suit...I udsed Blumats for a while, but they cant cope with coco's transpiration rate, so the next logical is to take that up a notch. I also want a self contained system, which lead me to the IWS... I know nothing about hydro, past growing in coco, im an organic soilist to be honest with you, but my circumstances have deemed change in the short term...Any help, pointers, tips, tricz and/or suggestions would be greatlty recieved...` Thanks
  2. Im currently doing the rounds with wholesale changes possibly afoot...I needed a new light, so I went LED - all new, and now we doing OK. I then thought 'since were changing the light, why dont we have a go at hydro? - so I bought coco - and havent looked back thus far...in fact im sure im not, but I feel like im smashing it I recently bought a camper van and like to get away which kind of fucks with the grow - short bursts do anyway. Long term lights off doesnt cause too much harm, up to 3 weeks in my experinece, but the lights are off and nothing is doing... i tried a passive hydro system, Blumats - loved the idea... That kinda worked on their day - ish, maybe, kinda/wanna/sorta didnt really in the end..., and was very unrelaible over periods of days, so the natural progression is just to go all out and go hydro, for the summer anyway. I fancy the IWS system as its largely self contained, apparently it adjusts itself not to over flood, and is bulletproof relaible...and if im only away a few days i can also reduce the res capacity so if I did get an issue, then it could manage the overun.. Im petrified of the nuteage situation. I had problems stabilizing my PH with the blumats in my 47L res and now thakfully back to hand watering - but that wont do at all when I need my open spaces - . I never filled it over about 30L anyway, but my plants were massively over fed which means my PH was probably out. Also blumats in coco dont create runoff so I assume some fo that over feding would have been roots related... In short I want to use an Auto PH range that just needs dosing to the water...does this exist? Is it any good? is it massively expensive ?- who has experience? if any? Im happy to aeriate with a pump of course, but if i could PH without PHing in a 100L res that would make my life a whole lot simpler...and easier. being a long term organic grower Ive never really had to bother about dry plants until recently. Ideally I'd like to fuck off for the week, but if I did that my weed would never grow - part of me wild campervanning is about my weed and devices on tour anyways i digress.
  3. Hi My plants are now at 12 weeks, flower week 6. Light Solar 315 CMH. First coco grow. Main plant in the full coco wilma dripper on 5 x 15min at 7ml per L of ionic bloom. Other plant is in a small pot mix of soil and coco, hand watering. I think I over did it, as the leaves yellowed and a few fell off. So letting dry out and feeding less, 1 feed bloom nutes, 1 feed ph'd water on and off. I think the main plant is getting close and thinking about flushing for 5-7 days and then chopping. I bought a loupe and that helps, images not the best though. I think the trichomes look milky and the pistils ate turning inwards with good orangey colour developing. Any advice on whether she looks ready and when to start flushing? Other plant is growing small buds on the top of the plant I think as it's too hot (it is higher than the other plant) so moved as low as I can. This plant is behind the other but seems to be stalling. I'm unsure how to feed this one as the mix of soil and coco is putting me off. Any thoughts on the below? Thanks for any help / advice! Hopefully getting close now!
  4. Hello & Welcome First off, massive thanks to Paradise for the opportunity to run these We shall endeavor to do the fabled strain justice. Paradise SENSI STAR. Blurb says; So, according to that I should have flowered 20 instead of the ones I did. I try to keep below 20 at all times so I am just running these with a long veg. Whoop whoop for guidelines Packaging details; Environmental aspects; Seedlings go under a 2 tube T5 for a couple of weeks, small mother/seedling cabinet. They then go under a 250w in a DR90 while they get potted up and topped etc. They then go into a Hydrolab 120s, under a 600w adjustable. I grow in coco, using hesi (softwater) feed, some root stim during early stages and at each pot up. I do not use boosts or other snake oils. The story so far; They went into Jiffy pellets around the 14th of August, by the 16th we had movement; and by the 19th we had life; You will notice that only 4 of the initial 6 sprouted. 4 weeks later (all units are estimated), we have the following to ogle; You will see the runty one on the front right, more on mutant later. Speed forward 8 days and the following sight greets you; And if we skip on a few more days to October the 7th we see this; On the 10th I topped 2 of them; Today, we mark the day that they went into the flower tent. 9 weeks today will see me chopping on December the 16th, 10 weeks will be the 23rd so christmas chopping is in order. Today they looked like this; You can clearly see the extra height that the non topped plant has. This one will be bent and tied over the next week IF she gets to big during stretch The album which contains the above images plus those I chose not to post is found here; I will do an update on the mutant next time, she seems to have topped herself As they are now in flower, we should really do updates frequently. As always though, expect a lot of bollox, no regard for ceremonies and a liberal dosing of flying fucks. No doubt Zem will be along soon, telling me I am doomed from the off as his grow is better nannnaanana Stay safe and well and avoid pebbles. Cheers
  5. Hello, Looking for some advice, New to coco, about 10 days into early veg with some ICC in 2l pots estimate around 3 or 4 days til re pot up to 16L as roots just starting to show at bottom of pot. like a plonka already made a rookie mistake and only fed 24hr water for first 2 feeds, as i am now led to believe i should of at least started with a rhizo 2ml per L 0.6 EC i have been feeding every other day for first week to give the roots some growth, began feeding every day on day 7. from the start i have been feeding them 300ml and been getting 75ml to 100ml in run off so a good bit over the 25% minimum required, the clones were well established in rockwool. from day 7 plants have been on (ml per 10L) rhizo 20ml calmag 2ml superthrive 3ml zenzime 2ml Then ECd with CANNA A & B to 1.0 usually that's usually around 10ml of each PH down to 5.8 Now here comes the kicker testing the run off, consistently i have been getting readings of 0.4/0.6 EC 6.0ph, im assuming this isnt normal and is a sign the plants want more nuets as they are using up a good amount of the EC, little bit nervous of increasing the EC already as i read early veg should be around the 0.8EC mark plants look perfectly happy at the minute but i am by no means an expert........just an apprentice.... Environment sat between (25C RH 40% lights on) (21C 50% RH) lights of (18/6 cycle) i am using a blue lab truncheon and ph monitor for those wondering. Any advice much appreciated, Thanks again JB
  6. Question for all drain to waste coco growers using a reservoir: How often do you drain out the res, clean/disinfect the sides/pumps/heater? I'm doing this every week and wondering if this was excessive and I could just keep topping up at halfway and ammending the EC etc. How long until the water goes off? Is 3 weeks too long between deep cleans? Cheers
  7. Please post any general questions you may have and we'll get back to you ASAP
  8. Hows it looking folks? 1st grow. Coco. 22L fabric pots. 1.5L water/feed (top fed) a day. Monster gorilla glue photo's, they are 8 days into flower. ~31C. ~50% r/h. Ive defoliated heavily over the past week as it was so rammed and thick with the supplemental colas which grew in addition to the ones I had planned.... which meant that the whole lot would have been compromised through not getting any light down the plant. And today ive bent over the higher ones to make the canopy more level. My light is a Maxibright daylight 480W pro LED @ 500mm. I thought they might be a bit pale green on top? any observations would be appreciated - everything seems to be in order other than the colour on top mysticriver
  9. Welcome to my new grow..... I'm on a mission this time. My Landlord is about to start building a new house next to ours, so we have lost our privacy We are definitely gonna move out in the next month or so, and supplies are running low, so I wanna grow some strains that I know can deliver a sizable harvest so we can move halfway through and get a good result. Right off the bat, I'm gonna do a Daiquiri Lime.... consistently a winner as I managed half a kilo last time I grew her. Toofless Alien did well last time, and I really love smoking Night Queen (my last seed). So on 26th June, I put up the tent, and made up three 20L airpots with H&G Coco and soaked them in a EC 0.6 nute mix. I planted the seeds and covered the pots with cling film and some dark card, leaving them under a couple of Skyline 400Ws for warmth. I didn't have quite enough coco (as always) so I ordered some more to top up the pots in a week or two. The seedlings sprouted on the 28th 29th and 30th.... Toofless Alien first, then Night Queen, then the Daiquiri. Here they are on day 5/4/3.... Then the new Coco arrived, so I topped up the pots, and thought I may as well fill another airpot up and plant a new Think Different from the batch of seeds I won from AFN. I also received a new Skyline 400W unit (thanks Mate!) so I had my 3 seedlings under a Skyline each, while I waited for the TD to sprout. She eventually showed her head on the 10th June, 12 days after the Alien.... so a bit of nute juggling will be going on these next few months! Here they are now..... Toofless Alien day 17 she really is flying away! Night Queen day 16 looking really good and healthy. Daiquiri Lime day 15 she started sluggishly and has now picked up. She did this before, so no worries They older ones are on an EC 0.8 nute mix and the TD is on EC 0.7. Think Different day 4 early days yet! I have now put a Photon 126 over the TD. She should take off! Hope you enjoy following this grow, more updates on the way!

  16. Hi I am helping my friend to setup new grow rooms. The plan is to grow in clay/coco mix 60/40 and he has a dripper system to water them in veg tent but plans to use autopots in flower tent. Do you thing that can work? It would me arroung 2 weeks in mini tent, then 4 weeks in veg tent and then flower tent. Second thing is: how much clay pebbles we need to put on the bottom of the pots?
  17. Hi guys, i am newbie and i need help. I have 2 Green Posion autoflower seeds which i want to grow simultaneously in SOIL and COCO. I have: - PLAGRON GROW MIX (White peat moss, black peat moss, peat moss fibre and worm casting) - BIOBIZZ COCO MIX (just plain Coco) - MYCORRHIZAE - PLAGRON WORM CASTING - CAL-MAG - GHE FLORA TRIPART - PERLITE I need help how to prepare medium. Where to put MYCORRHIZAE and WORM CASTINGS? And how much? I suposse i need to give GHE Tripart nutritiens after few weeks? Or should i give it to COCO before that? I am posting pictures of what i own. Thank you for your help.
  18. Hello all, I have recently prepared my coco for pots and instantly wished I had bought pre pepared coco coir. The hydrating process, rinsing and buffering and mixing with perlite took me hours of labour intensive work and it did make a rather large mess! I didn’t have time or space to leave the media to soak in a cal mag buffer solution for 8hrs per pot, I soaked it for probably half an hour per pot, constantly agitating. will this be enough and am I going to be ok. I have a sinking feeling in the back of my mind telling me I’m doomed. after much deliberation I decided to place my seedlings straight into their final pots (30l fabric pots) in a 70/30 mix of coco and perlite. Things are looking good so far and no sign of any calcium or magnesium deficiencies yet. it has been around 4 days and have been watered twice daily with ph 6.0 water at 21degrees c, with only cal mag, a wetting agent and some roots exelurator. growing under a Mars hydro tsw2000 light. it is my very first attempt so any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. seedlings only have 1 pair of single point leaves and are around 3 inches tall. (About 11 days old)
  19. My first LED grow coming soon !!!
  20. Ok so im around day 53 roughly of 12/12 and Running coco for the first time, curious on what people would advise as to flushing for harvest. Iv currently reduced my feeds down to 1.0 E.C at 60/40 (r.o/tap) so 0.3 E.C+ calmag up to 0.4 then A+B up to 1.0EC PH 6.0. My thoughts were to drop to just the r.o/tap or even straight tap water ph'd. Not sure on weather i can just flush it with ph tap water only or weather it would be best practise to reduce down to 0.8 E.C then down to just a mix of tap and R.O with cal mag for the rest of the flush as this is what the plant has been getting the whole grow with notes added on top. Im thinking to flush for probably 7 days
  21. Hi guys, new on here.. im trying to work out wether or not it is worth me buying some Fulvic and humic acids in addition to my existing nutes. I’m using terra aquatica tri part- micro bloom and grow, I’ve also got a gold label root exeluator and I’ve got advanced nutrients overdrive for my late flower stage. I’ve read lots of contrasting opinions about the use of humic and fulvic acids and many growers say less is more... sticking to a more basic set up will work well however I also feel that manufactures would bother making the product if it didn’t add something to our arsenals. Anyone on here used them before and had better results compared with a grow previous without using acids. ive for coco coir and perlite in 30l fabric pots. Using 2x small led fan driven lights with a veg and bloom setting and have 1x Mars hydro TSW2000. I’m running a comparison to see the different results in each half of my tent. I have a humidifier and heater in my setup to keep everything exactly where I want it and also have 2 XL co2 grow bags hanging towards the bottom of my tent by an inlet. I’m fairly new to this so any advice would be greatly appreciated. regards
  22. I got busted by the coppers in May 2019. Lost three flowering plants and a hundred grams of dry flower, along with my paraphernalia etc. Went to court and all that (conditional discharge), and now it's time to set up a new grow since I have some disposable income to use on the grow tent, lamp etc. I got the grow tent (2ft x 4ft x 6ft) from the local grow shop, and I'm planning to put in a 300w (give or take) Mars Hydro LED. This'll be my first grow entirely on LED lights, the two plants are already under a 100w led waiting for the big lamp to arrive. You can check out my grow diary for pics (more to follow):
  23. Hi guys, I’ve got 11 plants growing currently. 8 Do Si Dos auto flowers from Barneys farm and 3 x White widow x big buds autoflowers. So far they are growing well. Are around 10cm tall and filling out with leaves nicely. I’m at day 24 of seeds being planted. They went straight into rock wool cubes in a prop box. I have topped each plant once (controversial in autos I know) and have just began low stress training. Tent is 2.4 x 1.2 x 2.0m tall with 6” charcoal filter and a 2 speed inline fan. I’m using 1 x Mars hydro TSW2000 (300w led) and 2 x lunar fan cooled leds (120w each). The tent internal temp is 28deg c (or 80f) and RH is maintained by a humidifier and sits between 55 and 75% RH. I’ve got 30L fabric pots and plants are in a 70/30 mix of coco and perlite. plants are being fed once daily (as recommended in coco) using a few different bottles. Shogun Cal/mag 1ml per litre, Terra aquatica micro terra aquatica grow terra aquatica bloom (all as advised on bottles) Diamond nectar (fulvic acid) 1ml per 10L A wetting agent 1ml per litre, Roots exelurator 3ml per 10L and PH down where needed. recently I’ve noticed that the White widow x big buds have started sprouting some very strange looking leaves. Very wrinkly, very crinkly, very strange indeed. The look almost like mint leaves im unsure how to link photos on here but have photos of the plants. Other than the surface texture of the leaves I would say they look healthy. Not brown, brittle, curling, or showing any obvious signs of nute burn or deffiency. I am measuring ph before every feed at 5.5-6.5 and the water temp for feeding is exactly 21deg c (or 70f) im very new to all this and doing my best to learn what I can but the leaves have stumped me. any advise would be great. Thanks in advance

  25. Hi I need some advice on harvest please I grow in Coco using Canna nutes wich I stopped feeding a couple weeks ago, The two plants have been in flower for 8 weeks now and are really looking good. They where on 2ml A+B, 2ml Rhizo, 2ml Zym, 2ml Boost, all per 1L they did have some pk through weeks 5 and 6 with week 5 being a slow build up and 6 a full 1ml feed. I have started flushing my two plants Special Kush(SK) and Royal Domina(RD) around 11 days ago now and the leaves dont seem to be going that yellow at all. My two plants had a bigger flush 5 days ago in the bathtub where I put a bunch of ph water through each pot till the runoff was clear. Only a handful of leaves have started to yellow up and I am not sure if I should continue flushing for some more time or if its okay to harvest. I know for sure SK needs a week or so extra as I can physcially tell with the swelling the pistils and the trichomes are more clear on SK so not as mature. As for RD she is looking ready, buds look very full and swolen even the lower ones have swolen pretty nice the pistils seem mature and most importantly the trichomes are a really good cloudy covering across the plant with 10-15% amber. Is it okay to chop RD based on her being very filled out and her trichomes being a good cloudy coverage with amber mix or would it be adviseable to flush more allowing the leaves to yellow up ? Here is Royal Domina(RD) The one im looking to chop now, you can see near the back of the plant only the one small leaf starting to yellow. Here is Special Kush(SK) I am looking to give her a bit longer anyway due to her trichomes not yet being milky or amber they are mostly still clear but you can see the nug I have my hand behind the tips of the fan leaves are the only signs of yellowing on this plant.
