    1. Myth Busting - Autoflowers Revegging (can autoflowers reveg? Give us your thoughts!)

    Come give us your thoughts; we want to hear from you!
  • We're looking for grower submissions for any autoflowers that they have had tested by a lab or using a home testing device. The idea is to create a grouping of tests that we can use a resource to show growers (both new and experienced) what kind of cannabinoids and terpenes some of the strains we're growing are testing out with!

    Appreciate any help and consideration! Click here for the thread!

Hi guys I'm a newbie grower but long time stoner looking to start my first grow, I have a greenhouse set up, I'm currently soaking seeds for 36 hours in the dark then sowing directly into 12.5 ltr pots tomorow and leave the lady's in the greenhouse (143 x 73 x 195cm) to germanate .... I believe with my soil mix it may be unwise to feed veg nutrients as the soil should be sufficient untill week 5ish? Also I hope to LST the plants and then use Plant Magic Oldtimer Bloom around week 5, I have a 180ltr very mature fresh water aquarium witch holds a constant pH of 7, I plan to feed my grow with my tank water is this a bad idear from reading alot of fourms some say yes some say no anybody have first hand experience? any suggestions to help me out are greatly appreciated

Seeds
Rhino Ryder Auto - fast buds x 1 (soaking)
Dark Devil Auto (SWS38) – Sweet Seeds x 1(soaking)
Skunk #1 Automatic - Sensi Seeds x 3 (in the Post)

I grow to provide medicine to family and friends in need.
Look up Aquaponics. Done correctly you can water
Your plants with live fish aquariums. May need a larger tank or multiple tanks. It is a progression from one tank to another simple but complex. I know nothing about it. Research.

You need to look at the inputes to your aquarium. Are you using a stabilizer in the aquarium if so you cannot use the water for plants. They are designed to lock-up heavy metals and will lock out all of the trace metals you need in the grow. The next problem is the PH is too high you will want about 6.4. Look at anything else you are adding to the aquarium for problems in a grow. Aquaponics is done with fish and living plants in the pond with no artificial additives. I tried this once and It makes your weed taste like a fish pond.

:goodluck:

I started off planing to grow just 2 auto's its snowballed :mrgreen: I now have my gf envoled we have 10 different vegetables in garden planters 5 different fruit plants and 20 different types of chilli's growing from Reepers to Tokyo hot I guess it looks like good cover for any nosiey neighbours I been lugging a lot of compost around like alot :oops1:
Lockdown is definitely getting green fingered :shooty:
P. S
I'm now researching in depth with the view to setting up a grow 4ftx4ft led tent indoors

Any advice on a suitable light and ventilation set up I can get in the UK would be grate
