  1. Hi....relatively new grower here... I'm hoping that someone can help me figure out a problem I've had growing autos. Specifically, I've grown several autos but despite growing well in veg, the plants effectively 'stopped' mid-flower and did not fully mature. In addition, very little smell which seems to suggest that something was 'wrong' despite appearances. The bud was nowhere near the quality I'd expected although the overall volume of dried bud was good (appx 400g per plant). I've had this issue with several autos - it does not appear to be a one-off. I kept a grow diary with regular photos so can supply further details if required but here are the basic details of my most recent grow: Strain: Dutch Passion auto White Widow (also had the same issue with Dutch Passion auto orange bud). Growing environment: 1x1 metre area grow tent with oscillating fan & air extraction unit 11 Litre airpots Substrate: Canna Coco Pro Plus with appx 30% perlite added. Nutrients: Canna Coco A & B, Calmag, Rhizotonic, PK 13/14, Boost (all from the Canna range) Lights: 2 x SF-1000x Spider Farmer LED's (each @ 97 watts power draw) + 1x150watt HPS. Light schedule: 20/4 then 18/6 for the final 4 weeks. Water: RO water with calmag added to bring typical water ec to 0.4 (target) Watering schedule: twice daily after veg got underway and then three times daily when in flower. Always watered to at least 30% runoff minimum. Input EC and output EC checked at each watering. When in flower, typically flushed once per week as output EC tended to drift too high suggesting nutrient buildup within the coco. EC typically back within acceptable range (i.e. no more than +0.4 ec compared to input ec) after flush. Nutrient schedule: broadly in line with Canna recommended schedule. No major issues with leaf burn although a little leaf tip yellowing did occur. In general, I tended to go a little under the suggested Canna 'light' schedule ec values. Defoliation: minimal. LST: None - essentially left the plants to grow naturally. Temperature & humidity: typically 20 to 25C. Humidity in tent was usually around 40% during flowering. Problem description: Flowering started off as expected at approx 8 weeks after germination but did not mature as expected - no amber trichomes even after 17 weeks when I did the final cut. Some leaf yellowing did occur but regular inspection of trichomes suggested that plants were not developing as expected. One theory is that because the plant was relatively large, the nutrients supplied could not support the plant through to full maturity although this is little more than a guess. I got a big volume of bud off the plant (400 gram dry weight) but quality, as stated earlier, was very poor. Would have happily settled for a much lower yield but decent quality! I researched the requirements for growing autos and am reasonably confident that the overall growing environment was roughly 'correct'. No obvious signs of disease or pests. Can anybody suggest what my problem is? I'm sure if the growing environment were inherently poor then I would not have managed to grow the plants through veg stage and into flower. Thanks in anticipation!

  5. Tucker's 2019 Dinafem Outdoor Auto Adventure Hello hello hello , Yep its that time of year again. The long dark and cold winter is receding aday at a time. I decided to sign up to this Dinafem outdoor competition because of the great strains on offer and i would never turn down the offer of getting a outdoor project on the go. Firstly I’d like to thank the seed sponsor @Dinafem-Mark for allowing me to take part and grow some of these marvellous Dinafem strains. For this grow diary I've decided to choose White Widow Auto and White Widow XXL Auto and some Amnesia Autos which have been sat in my fridge for a year . I’m really interested in giving auto’s a try and i can see that autos are improving in quality. Lets face it ,autos are getting better and better and i believe they will feature more and more in the coming years. Inspired by other growers on uk420. This diary/ competition entry is dedicated to growing auto strains in the somewhat unreliable English summer. Watch this space for an update .... Speak soon.
  6. Hi, everyone - hope you’re all doing well and keeping safe. It’s that time of the year again. Can’t believe it’s come round so fast. I’ve spent the last few weeks tidying up the greenhouse, checking supplies and I’m just about ready to get growing again. All we need is some decent weather this year. There was far too much mouldy stress for everyone last year. In a selfish way, I’m hoping the lockdown stays in place most of the summer - it’ll make growing in the garden a little easier without the threat of someone popping round. Anyway, I’ve had a dilemma this year in what to grow. I had a lovely selection of seeds from @Dinafem-Mark. After last year, I thought I’d go down the auto route. My plan is four strains and I’ll plant two maybe next weekend, and the other two the week after to stagger them a little. I might throw in a Shark Shock CBD as it’s been sitting in my cupboard since last year and I’ve not tried any CBD strains. This will be the only photo seed I’ll do, but I’ll leave it for a few weeks before I decide. So here’s my 2020 line up: OG Kush Auto White Widow Auto Gorilla Auto Bubba Kush Auto As you can tell, I love my Indicas! The weather is supposed to be turning cooler next week, so I’ll probably pop the first two in soil next weekend, and the other two the weekend after. I had a significant birthday a few weeks ago and my lovely hubby bought me my first bong, so I can’t wait to get these girls ground up in it. Anyway, I’ll be following everyone’s diaries again this year. Good luck to you all - this is the best growing forum on the planet so your advice and support is much appreciated. Stay safe x
  7. Hi, I have trawled the board but not found an answer yet. Apologies if it is staring me in the face. I have a White Widow Auto which popped through the soil (under glass) on 23rd April. Been fighting off Aphids since June. Just shy of four months later I still dont see 40% amber trichomes. But I do see aphids crawling so near the buds I am worried i should just chop and dry. I read somewhere that "washing" the buds is a good way to remove those last aphids, but nervous to try that due to mould in a uk climate. What do the experts think? would a good shake be enough to dislodge the last aphids? Or a Wash?
  8. Story time. I missed my last year's report. Following a stupendous (imho) 2018 where I pulled 110g, I continued with the nebula ii cbd strain (assisted again by a Northern Lights Auto) I bought in Ams the previous year. I ran the same play in 2019 with devastating results. Not in a good way. With a pissy summer in the SE region and a mizzy Autimn, I lost all but a few grams of the Auto. I learned that it takes an exceptional summer or using Autos to end the year early.Two good plants is all I need generally to last a year. I still have a lot of the 2018 Nebula CBD harvest, which is a reliable, if a little boring, medication. So this year I led with White Widow Autos. But I wanted to experiment with something a little more sativa, and I saw these Cobra Flash on Seedsman. Finally, I had a WW Photo and threw it in the mix just for a stretch. Two bankers and a punt I thought. Here's their story. First thirty days of the WW Photo
  9. auto white widow day 13 Plant magic plus supreme soil Watered with only 24hr stood tap water no nutes yet 250w HPS at 16inchs Circulation of air is good and has a small desk fan blowing on plant for stem strengthening Temps range 22 - 32 on average never lower but last two days have hit 35c max Rh usually between 30 - 50 I hope this is all the info needed to diagnose the marks on this girls leaves.
  10. Just an appreciation post for the info this site has provided, as this wouldn't have been possible without it

  14. Daft question but iv just started moving some bigger plants outdoors but how does it work if I’m feeding them in pots an it rains? Will it flush the nutes? Sorry for daft question haha don’t want leave em out an go out for night an it pour down
  15. Hi Everyone, Back again for a 2020 indoor grow. Just one Dinafem seed going at the moment, but she's a classic. White Widow. This is her at 24 days. She's been growing three nodes at a time since the first true pair ... I'm 3/3 germination on Dinafem's White Widow. One of the early seedlings was missing a first leaf. This one is more than making up for it. The nodes are now alternating but still producing three at a time. She's in recycled rootball + worm poo and batshit under a 220w Scope dimmed right down. She was 24/0 for the first three weeks now she's on 18/6.

  17. My first Dinafem Grow, I've always wanted to try White Widow and Gorilla sounds amazing. I grow in reused Canna Pro Plus making organic teas from Borage, fish emulsion, worm castings and bat shit. I have a perpetual grow .. all HSO until now.

  19. Hi everyone and welcome along to my very first attempt at growing....anything....ever! ive been lurking in this site for a couple of years but have finally went out and bought myself everything (I think) I need to grow my own bush. KIT 75x75x200 budbox tent 4” td extract fan, acoustic ducting and rhino hobby cf 660w dimmable ballast + 250w mh (veg) 600w hps (flower) 6” clip fan and 9” floor fan STRAINS GROWING 2 x Dinafem White Widow 2 x Dinafem Blue Cheese im going to be attempting to follow Nebula’s Manifold technique from the GWE site as I’ve been reading up on this for years and it seems like the way for me. I had my gear running for a few days before my seeds arrived just to make sure I could control the temp and humidity and after some hammering and sawing I got it sitting steady at 24c and 30% with the 600w lamp in and ballast cranked up to 660w. Those td fans are pretty good! My seeds arrived yesterday and I immediately planted them in little biodegradable pots 3/4 filled with coco and pre-soaked with plain tap water. Once the standing water had run out the pots I placed each seed in pointy side down and covered loosely with a 1/2” layer of coco. I then popped them into my propagator and into the airing cupboard covered with a towel to keep it dark. Temps are ranging from 18c when the heating goes off and 24c when it’s on. Humidity steady around 55-60%. They’ll be staying in there until they’ve cracked the surface then it’s out of the airing cupboard and into the tent under 250w mh with the extract running. I’m using ionic nutes but will be starting them off with some formulex until probably the second set of fan leaves then switch to 1/4 strength nutes Once they're 6 nodes high it will be time for the first top and clean up then tie the branches down to begin forming my manifold. Let them grow another couple of nodes each side then it’s one last top and clean up. They’ll be vegged until just below 1/2 my desired finishing height then it’ll be in with the 600w HPS, ballast down to 400w and increase it up to 660w week by week Ill be posting pics as I go so feel free to jump in with any pointers, criticism (good and bad) or just for a blether. Below are a couple of pics of my tent and ventilation. Next photos will be when they pop their heads through to say hello cheers for reading Tent is in the en-suite of my bedroom with the shower ripped out. Kept the sink and toilet in case I spend too much time up here with the girls ha extract rigged up to an existing, unused extractor fan which vents out through the roof
