    Hi there, welcoming all Irish growers!

    I wondered how many Irish growers there are, so I thought about creating this thread.

    Basically, post whatever you like about security, weed, lights or whatever, so long as its weed and Irish related!

    Greetings from the another emerald isle. I'm an Irish grower in Hawaii. Good luck with this thread. We have a couple of great ones going here and have become a little community. I've met some great people thru RIU

    Great idea for a thread. Im having a second go at growing now after a failed first attepmt. Got myself some lowryder#2 seeds so hopefully I will be a bit more successful with these. I dont really have room for big lights so im hoping a mixture of sunlight and a bit of light from a small light will do the job.

    even if the "sterilized soil" is a bit to thick or clay like and creates mud just add some perlite and sand(not beach sand due to its high salt content)... that will help make it a bit more drain-able.. also you can cut a few more drainage holes in the pots you are using..

    most equipment can be bought at a local grow shop or a local hardware shop and there are many methods of growing. as far as seeds theres a bunch of online seed banks you can probably order from depending on the flexibility of the seed bank and the laws of where you live.

    cool. theres a fair few of u here!

    i plan to grow sum trainwreck later, when the weather improves!

    topsoil is grand, but it would need mixing with vermiculite and potting compost, prob 40%soil, 30%verm,30%potting compost.

    "Alright, here is my plan:assorted pickandmixseeds for a 600W indoor

    Apart from that I was in Lidl today and saw bags of Bulrush "sterilized topsoil". Is it the right soil to grow? Some said "yes", some said "topsoil goes muddy, and can suffocate those delicate little roots". :confused:

    Where do I buy equipment and seeds?
    Which seeds grow best in Irish climate?
    Is there a decent Irish forum? "



    u can get both equipment and seeds from your local head shop, galway head shop defo sells all u need. the downside is theyre more expensive than on the net, but the upside is you can pay cash so theres no information for cops to find. i grew white rhino last year, and it was grand. i dont know of an irish forum tho, id say this thread is ur best bet. :-s

    Thanks ## 8 thru 12!

    I can't get the actual Holland's Hope but I could get a few of these: http://www.pickandmixseeds.co.uk/search?q=hollands+hope

    B3NNY IRL,
    as far as soil goes, money is really not the issue at this point. In your opinion, taking the price out of the equation, is Shamrock still the best soil?

    If so, what's its exact name and what do you mix it with and in what proportions?

    The hollands hope would be my number 1 choice, it does extremely well in shit conditions. Its a pity they had none in stock when i was getting my seeds.

    Delighted that a forum has been established for Irish growers.......why didn’t I think of it?!?!?!?!

    Too busy growing I presume, anyhow I just wanted to say hello.

    I’m currently on my 2nd vegetative week of growing ‘Skywalker’ from Dutch Passion; hopefully all will work out well (soil growing all the way). Only growing 4 plants at the moment, the legal situation is still a little fuzzy for me. What’s the worst that can happen if one grows for one’s own personal consumption?

    Growing from a dark tent, 400watt HPS system, 2 fans (bringing and removing air) and 1 oscillating fan, humidifier and heating mat.

    Any feedback on the legal situation would be much appreciated!
    :weed:
