    So its not my first grow but it is my first from seed ( none of which i have any idea what they are but hey, i got a bag of 50 free seeds from a mate and thougth surely some will come good, he has two amazin looking ladies from the same bag...)

    am using normal compost from BnQ, big pots ( i have no idea how big i just bught them cheap ) a 400W HPS and am going to use bio bizz big bud and overdrive. i presently have them in a room not big enough for them, in which i try to sleep though its light and and theres a strange buzzing noise from somewhere hahaha...

    anyway i germinated them ive stuck them in some pots and now their starting to take off! hopefully ill have some bomb ass shizzle for santa crizzle:weed:

    the bottom pics are of the two ladies my friend has currently 1 week from chop chop time.

    watch this space.....

    cheers, i wish that were mine but im guessing with a little luck i should get something along those lines using the same bag of seeds, my friends setup is a bit more proffesional than mine i must admit, hes using hammerhead and a proper tent with 600w hps

    I dont know if i am in the right blog here, but i've got 4 week to two week old plants in a DWC system. The leaves look healthy but the stems seem REALLY weak like they can't even hold up the leaves. What am i doing wrong!!! I used only water for the first week than i added 1/4 the recommended nutrient additive to the water. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    so the first couple of sets of leaves are starting to take form, some of them are a bit snaggle tooth :???: but im an equal oppurtunties employer...

    am guessing the faster stronger looking ones will be more productive?!:weed:

    Maybe, but maybe not. Sometimes the weaker looking ones will catch right up or even pass the ones that look really good at first. How close is the light to all of them?

    so its been a while... i moved house but havent moved the garden due to my fridge/freezer being knackered :-( meaning a visit from the landlord in about 6 days when he gets back from a holiday in spain. i dont know what im more gutted about having no fridge or being seperated from me bairns... one seems to have sprouted a fork ?!?!?!

    :hump: So i got a new 125W envirolight and reflector and covered a cupboard in mylar, the next temporary measure till i can organise a bud box :mrgreen:

    ive moved them into the new gaffe but done away with a couple of the weaker looking ones due to space requirements...

    i wonder now though if i should have got a 200W as i have 8 ladies in the garden??? what affect will going from a 400W HPS to an envirolight? will the growth rate slow, I expect it will but as this is temporary it doesnt matter too much. the space will be used for a couple of mothers soon. i reckon 125 enviro should be ample light for them.

    sorry for the dark pic ( the ladies are sleeping ) ill post one soon in the 'daytime' haha

    forgot to mention ive bought some seeds for the next run through 'kali mist', 'hindu kush skunk' and 'blue moonshine' cant wait to pop those magic beans:weed: ive been wanting to grow some different coloured skunk for a while.....

    ATB mate, subscribed. Do yourself a favour and get a secret jardin tent, budboxes are shite, trust me.

    All the corner connectors broke while trying to stretch the skin over the frame, the skins are made to small for the frame, because the skin is so stretched the stitching is stretched too, most of the zip toggles pulled off in my hand the first time i zipped it up and it has pinhole light leaks everywhere, theyre mickey mouse tents mate, i sorted all the problems with mine myself but it takes the piss for the price they ask for them.

    Not always mate, some are just slow starters, sometimes the small weak lookin ones give you the best tasting bud, although smaller yields.

    cheers for the heads up londoner! i was basically looking for the cheapest 120cm x 120cm x 200cm and judging by the smell coming from the cupboard id best get a move on... i thought they wouldnt start smelling for at least another 2-3 weeks but sure enough they're startin to kick up stink :-? and funnily enough its only the largest one thats smelling?!? how weirds that!

    as for my pals strain we have no idea the seeds came out of a mix up bag someone had gifted! sadly in the very last week a couple of branches started developing male bananas :( he was going to chop them straight down but i advised just lopping off the branches that had them while he flushed them through a couple more days... its hanging presently and should be good for smokin come the weekend, (hes already tried a bit and it knocked him on his arse) bongsmilie

    as you say even the weaker ones pick up! snaggletooth (1st pic) is coming along nicely
