    Hey AFN.. :toke: ..I started the Cosmic Bomb Auto today..:bow:..woohoo hehe...but It won't be what I count as day 1 for a bit yet...I decided against using jiffy plugs and just put them into small, easily transplantable plant pots instead, as the 4 litre pots have not arrived yet..:d5:...so first I filled the little pots with the Ecothrive 70/30 coco...

    ...then I emptys it out....into the black plastic tray and shook some Reggae Roots over it .....
    IMG_20210310_123921547.jpg

    ...mixed it and back in the pots and watered with some Ph6 water....put a seed in each pot, little bit more water and wrote a tag for each....I vaulted the other seed incase of a misfire.....
    IMG_20210310_130900169_HDR.jpg

    ..then put each into an old broke, repair, broke, repaired humidity dome and put them in the veg tent....nice! :joy:

    I will prolly put them on a heated mat soon....stay tuned good AFN people.....more soon..:smiley1:

    Hello AFN people...:toke:...I have/am going to make some changes around here hehe...I smoked a phat joint of GSC and whilst sat on the ceiling earlier:haha: mentally masticating over my recent reads and thoughts, I remember @DCLXVI excellent journal and something @Proph posted yesterday, I think?:baked:.....anyway lol...Yonks ago, I thought "..I don't think I am using Coco to it's full potential....I should be feeding less and more frequently!!".....but alas....I didn't have the power to achieve this hydro like state, imo anyway hehe...so now I do have a bit more lumen for bloomin.....I am going to try....so thanks to the growers I mench earlier as you kicked off this line of thought:thanks:.....I was worried about salts building up....so I was considering doing a weekly flush again....with the leftover stuff from another grow?.....thoughts anyone?....

    Hello fellow Afn-ers...the big Fugue Indica Special Pheno is down....what a beautiful lady she was...really easy grow... absolutely super fast stretch and big solid buds...two really good mains....not a quark sized bit of larf to be seen and as for trich coverage, while I was clipping these...it felt like sand on my fingers at the beginning...then it was just sticky...good sticky tho hehe...I took a pic of the harvest ...but please excuse the tent shot, I clipped it in there so the fan would help with the smell....
    IMG_20210415_220040513.jpg

    Goodbye Fugue Indica....a fantastic harvest..Thank you...and a Thanks to Mephisto...:joy:

    Hello AFN...got a rolling tip for you to help if you want to get blazed...not that you need any haha...anyway, the missus and I like to share a big joint between us at the weekend..:smoking:..and I like to put some rosin around the joint hehe...but as we all know hehe rosin gets runny when warm and rosin is sticky as f**k...so I tried to put it on the inside of the joint paper.... before I rolled it...and that was a disaster lol...so I tried this way and it worked pretty well....

    Hello AFN community...as I thought thru last night's post...both these ladies have breached today....NL2 had shell head but it was easily removed...NL1 is fully open, humidity covers are off and so begins this grow....

    Hello everyone, as the thread mark says, I have had a bright idea, this is it, please tell me what you think!.....Back when I was just beginning to grow, a couple of years ago I purchased a fan for the purpose of drawing air from my tent and filtering it, to help with the dank stank, some call them extraction fans....including me, haha!!... anyway, I bought a 4" TT inline extraction fan and a filter, set it up...TOO F**KING LOUD!!...so I bought a silencer box to put it in....WRONG F**KING BOX!!:cuss:....so this flat-pack, MDF, piece of s**t box and the fan and filter have been taking up space and generally getting in the way for a while now.....so in a kind of last-ditch attempt to try and make it more silent, I had the bright idea to do this.......
    Step.1)...I wrapped the fan in loooads of cling-film, blocking the ends with some white card first...
    IMG_20210902_123325188.jpg
    IMG_20210902_123335818.jpg
    IMG_20210902_123348253.jpg

    Step 2)...I made some some stands, taped them on to raise the fan up and added some sticky foam around the outer edge of the fans in and out......
    IMG_20210902_132417877.jpg

    Step 3)...put the fan in the box and made sure it was in the right position....
    IMG_20210902_132514226_HDR.jpg
    IMG_20210902_132527614.jpg
    IMG_20210902_132542046.jpg

    Step 4)...filled it with this and screwed the lid on.....tight hehe..
    IMG_20210902_135041475.jpg

    ...and that's as far as I got bcoz it has to dry haha, but when it is, I should be able to take the box off, bit by bit....and end up with a solid foam cube.... carefully cut down the middle, take the fan out, strip the cling-film off the fan and re-assemble the whole thing.....but it should be much quieter........no?......let me know gromie's and groshe's......cool or fool? hahahahahahahah...have a nice day!!...
