Howdy AFN :d5: :worship: :vibe:

My name is Hippy and I am starting another Organic Goodness grow with lots of lovely Biotabs goodies, a few Mephisto beans and some DIY cobs! :woohoo1: :welcome:

I've been growing weed / autos for about 11 months now, and this is about my 5th grow as some were slightly staggered.

I'm an old hippy so I try to minimise my impact on the planet/environment with low energy and water use :vibe:

The set up is as follows:

Tent: Homebox Ambient R120 White. 120 x 90 x 180cm. Lovely white insides.

Lights: 250w DIY Citizen CLU048 1212 cobs. 5 x 50w cobs on a frame. 24/0 lighting.

Soil and pots: Biobizz Lightmix soilless medium. 10, 15 and 25 litre airpots. Approx 30% perlite.

Nutrients: Full Biotabs line up including PK Booster Compost Tee. 2 tabs in the small pot, 2.5 in the medium, and 3 in the biggun. Maybe add some more to the big one later if needed. Also going to try combining the Biotabs goodness with some Green Planet Bud Booster and Dense in flowering. Used alongside the PK Tee. Hopefully this will work nicely to build some big fat organic buds! :thumbsup: :jointman:

Extraction: Passive only. Flaps always open (ooh er mrs). Door open most of the day time. Couple of fans inside for circulation, on floor and wall.

Music: Mostly reggae but also other good, positive vibes music to make the girls happy :cool1:

Strains: Mephisto Stilton Special in the 10 litre pot. Mephisto Livers n Cheese in the 15 litre pot, and HOPEFULLY Mephisto MBAP in the big 25 litre. One failed to pop the soil, another one disappeared in the soil, have just put two more in tissue! WTF?!

Other Equipment: None! Totally skint at the moment and thermo/RH meter is dead so can't measure that. Oh, I have got a couple of 2 foot tube heaters on the floor.

I am hoping the Stilton and Livers n Cheese will be ready for Christmas, and the MBAP for New Year if all goes well!

Everybody is very welcome to come and take the p*ss, have a laugh, advise, criticise and maybe even someone can learn something even from an old hippy fool like me :crying: :vibe:

Hope to see some of you here soon :cheers: :woohoo1::kiss:

And he is off again :vibe::kitty::baby::baked: Looking forward to seeing a tent full of fresh frosty stunners over the next couple of months. You're killing this growing lark pal and can only see it getting better as you live and learn :greenthumb::pass:

Hey! :D

More biotabs! And you got the full setup too ^_^

I've been really enjoying the biotabs experience so far - a bit more work for me in the beginning ... mixing the ingredients up, but all completely worth it for the time it saves in the long run and the easy healthy growing.

Hope it all goes well for you (i can't see why it wouldn't) I'll be "peeking in" from time to time


^_^
