  1. A seedling in need

    Hi Shadey, at the mo I have my head straight, how goes your canaba plants, (think that's what there called) there close to harvest, I am very plz you have your license, it's what you have wanted for awhile, it reads like you can only grow a certain amount, is this correct, and if you have a large place to grow, wouldn't this be a good earner for you when you get the other license, over here it's a complete ban on the plant, we are told if we use this our soles are lost, and we will all land in hell, but before that happens we go crazy, drug induced maniacs. So hats of to your country for being so open to the health of there people.. Re: the wee seedling, it looks like I am again at fault, the rockwool cube I use for stability of the seed cube, is allowing the roots to wander into the wool, but there isn't any nutes there. ( I hope) Regards

    Hi L/R, I hope your feeling better, your back in your home and settled. Re: seed problem, I have know idea what 1/4 strength is, I use advance nutes ph perfect, I added equal parts of grow and micro, added some RO water, till EC reading was 250pp, and began to feed the rockwool cube, and I think there is an improvement already, will wait a couple of days and take pic. L/R knowing I am using the DWC system, what is the best way to do 1 seed, many thanx, and get well soon. regards

    Unsure the PH of my RO water I did soak the cube in RO water, then with some gentle pressure squeezed out allot of the water, placed the seed into the cubes and roughly 3 days the wee thing was showing. Thank for your interest...

    Hi L/R, long time .... I am using Root Riot Cubes, "txt clip from there page" Made from composted organic materials, these new cubes have a great spongy texture which retains the perfect air/water ratio for healthy, rapid root growth. Suitable for both cuttings and seeds, Root Riot consistently outperforms alternative media. The cubes are specially inoculated with micro nutrients to nourish the young plants, and also beneficial rooting fungi to aid root development. I place this little sqr cube into a rockwool cube because it sits better, doesn't fall over, and feed once a day with RO water. thats all I do I have also noticed it's not growing upwards very fast, I am using 2 cool white tubes set up, pretty close to the plant. That said unsure if they grow upwards fast at this stage Good to see you back L/R many thanx

    Hi, I am using those root riot cubes, you place seed into cube, it meant to have all the nutes the young seed needs, as for the rock wool, I am growing one seed, and it sits better in the rockwool cube, I only feed RO water, I water once per day carefully,last grow, I damaged one of 2 plants, had to toss it out, this was due to drowning the poor thing. Shadey it's very good to know you have my back just loving this stuff.........
  6. A seedling in need

    Hi Guys, this is my 2nd grow, although I was pretty pleased with my 1st, I still had problems with it, the main one was, the plant didn't look a healthy green, I based this from some of shadeys pics in the forum. Anyhoo Back to my 2nd try, it's from seed, my set-up is a work in progress. But already I am seeing ill-health. I did let it dry out a little, but I thought it had come back, it was only one day. Any help would be much appreciated, and it will save me pestering Shadey See picture.. Thanx in advance

    Hi LabRat, thought I would drop you a line, haven't spoken in a while, I hope all went well with you, and your travels. are you moving ? have you moved ? did you get a better job?

    Hi L/R, unsure if your back, I hope all went well. Reading your reply, and looking at the vast 10wks or so experience I have :), I can say the DWC is far to small, I need 50ltrs, the humidity, I was never in control, it was/is what it was/is, so I think I will look for a humidifier, a thermostat running my extraction would be a plus, might need a small thermostat blow heater for the plants dark time in the winter, It's a closet the room is very small, adding all that gear might be a challenge. Dly checking nute, getting on my knee's to (1st) see the water levels in the DWC, (2nd) getting a nute sample to find out the nute strength is getting harder, bad knee, I am on my 3rd knee steroid injection, and it's not that good any more, max is maybe 4 injections, new knee after that. The Advanced Nutes PH perfect, I think are brilliant simply due to the fact that I don't need to worry about PH, and now that the plant is big, and has a canopy, the nute temp is always about 65 to 68f, the main light seems to be good enough, however this is based on nothing I have nothing to compare, but it's growing the plant well. I waited way to long to top, then to place into flower, looks like I might burn my buds, the light is at it's max hieght. Again I hope your travels bore fruit... picture

    5gal pails it's a PITA L/R your not kidding, I think I will buy 2 large 50ltr tubs, by the time I reduced the levels allowing roots to strech a little to the water, I am 12ltrs max, 50ltrs would be great. I have topped the plants, or killed them will let you know, I sincerely wish you well on your travels, BC have you lived there before ? work for us guys is hard to find, most just laugh when I ask, age age age, budtender ? is this looking after a crop ? in the UK it's all bad, if I have cuttings these are counted as a plant, "if the worse happened" so 2 plants plus 4 cuttings adds up £ billions on the street value, where really it's a couple of hundred pounds, also there is a good chance I would be evicted. your country is very liberal ... I think your doing the right thing, if your not happy, cut it out and move on, and hope things get better...... Veg area, wow, L/R I have been in this bussiness for well over 8wks already I want more room, I can build a shed in the garden 16ft x maybe 10ft those grow tents look good, at the mo I have a tiny closet 43" x 30", and thats it, I have 8 cutting in a propagator, and I really don't know where to put them, at the mo, there is no light to them, when do I add light ? but getting back to the shed, it would entail lagging, water, elec, doing it well £1500, on the cheap £1000 plus the cost of shed, but already I see problems with my tiny set-up at the mo, and I would so love to go out and mess about and have room to do so. What is cocobudder ? L/R I cant wait to try the meds, the pain killers aren't good, and I am addicted, and the only way forward is stronger and stronger, liver damage etc Depression, I mean just to have a break from the dark, bring it on, but I am a criminal now. Hopefully I can get a couple of oz per plant, fingers crossed, Not yet flowering I start my 8th wk on tuesday, the packet said 8 to 9 wks Can I ask the feeding ratio, it would be a great help when the time comes to flower, I simply have no idea on flowering ratio, thos disc came with the dwc, I thought I had to keep them there temp/rh controller Classic idea, thanx All the best in BC, take care, and I will keep you in my thoughts and if there is anyone listening, will put a good word in....... Many Thanx

    Hi,thanx for the chart, unsure how I can increase the humidity ? spray the leaves would this work ? I can decrease draw from extraction fan, this increases the humidity slightly, but increases the nute temp Have established both plants taking about 1 gallon (4.5ltrs) per day today I trimmed my plants a little, taken 4 clones from each plant, it seems to me now is the time to cross your fingers and hope cuttings root. Anyhoo have taken a picture of my plants, a little trimmed, what do you think, I still don't think they look as healthy as the ones I see on-line. Thanx for your help

    Hi L/R & Shadey Thanx very much for your candid answer to my questions, I am looking forward to trying these “knew to me” med's. I must admit it would be really nice just to feel a little up-lifted and pain free, even if it's just for a short time. Taking into account these 2 poor plants, have been abused, with my lack of knowledge, what kind of gram weight should I look for,? and how long will this last me, ? it sounds like 2 plants in a closet will not be enough. Update.. Today I chk-d both dwc systems, nutes etc. Nute temp was 69f growroom temp 75f humidity 50 unsure what 50 means, and I have no control over this. Leaf temp 73f to 75f Small plant took 6 ltrs. Nutes strength stand at 700ppm Large plant had no nutes, yip no nutes, half inch perhaps on the bottom, had to add 12 ltrs remember I topped up and fed them on Friday past, Tuesday there is nothing in the pail... Nute strength stands at 820ppm L/R what is happening here ? Will start checking dly from now on. Again thanx to both of you for your help......

    Hi L/R & Shadey Reading about the license you require, it got me thinking. As you may know this is all new to me, and without both your help I wouldn't have got this far. However can I ask, how good is the medication side of it, I suffer from sever arthritic pain, all I can do is take stronger and stronger pain killers, and these in there self bring other ailments, and before you know it, I am boxed. I also suffer from a mild form of D.I.D. And anxiety and depression. What can I expect from using cannabis medication, I am growing Royal Queen Seeds.. Painkiller XL CBC and I am doing all this, and I have very little knowledge to go on, can I ask your good self, how you find it helps... I am hoping it will cure my anxiety and depression, fix all the arthritic pain, and I go dancing into the sun......... ok perhaps expecting a little to much...

    Hi L/R, thanx for the read, will these clinic's sell you bud ? and what is the £250 for, ? is it to join there clinic ? L/R why do you need to join this clinic ? you can grow your own, and very good at it, do you need this clinic, sorry for the questions, UK we are all criminals, the attitude towards this medicine is very closed of, a normal guy on the street, cannabis is accepted. the people in power however have a different attitude, our NHS staff seem to recite the same retrick that the news papers print, i.e. it's the devils way we are far from legalising cannabis.
