    I hear ya man. I've been growing on and off for 10 years, I've been learning for 10 years and I'll still be learning in another 10 years. My girls are my safe space, when life is kicking me in the hole, (which is all the time these days), I tend to them and they help keep me grounded.

    Lights were on when I topped, in her 3rd week of veg, I topped the 5th set of leaves. She was stunted for a week, then started to recover but the flowers on the 5th node never grew. I obviously took too much, but this is how we learn. (:

    Peaky Blinders was class last night, what an ending!! Cannot fucking wait to see how this plays out!

    Any advice on a big yield strain anyone ?
    How many could I fit under a 1000w (600w + 400w) in a 2m x 2m tent.

    I tried 15 mixed strains before but it got attacked by insects and mice !

    And i hope ye have a good day :grin:

    Anything with critical or big bud in the name will be a heavy yeilder.
    You you want big yeilds id suggest pheno hunting this round n keep the performers of the lot

    No idea on big yield strains but I'd like to know the answer to that question too!

    Got a call to collect the smallie from school coz she's sick, so that's my lot for the next few days. I hate adulting. >:(

    If I had the time I would bro.
    But we got to be out of the house by September as it's after being sold.

    So this is a one off grow in the big tent unfortunately.

    How any would you put under 1000w in 2mx2m if you had the choice?

    Disaster with the smallie. It's the season for all sorts of ailments.

    I grew Big Bud before in the hope of a big harvest but over fed them so got minimum off them.
    I'm on Attitude Seeds now browsing. To much to choose from !!!!

    I've been here so many times man, the fucking rental situation is a nightmare at the mo! Had to move 3 times in a year because of greedy landlords turfing us out, one lad even threatened to change the locks on us and dump our stuff in the garden! Same time my dog had just died, she was only 5. We spent 2 months and xmas in a bloody holiday home in the arsehole of nowhere because it was that or sleep in our car.

    I get why you want to maximise your harvest now, can't say I blame you! Do you think you'll set up again after the move?

    Yeah defo the season for all sorts, there's so much going around in the schools. It was never like that when we were kids! Got fecked out the door unless we were literally at death's door.

    We have been lucky.
    Moved only twice since 2005.

    House were in now is and has only been €680 for the last 6 years !
    It' sold now for €250k so gotta move.

    As for growing again. Hopefully. But nothing as big as I plan now.
    I've got turned down by 3 banks for a mortgage of €140k.
    Never missed rent in our lives etc.

    So fuck the banks. We hope to get a council mortage. And this grow will help us right out :weed:

    Fingers crossed re the mortgage! Don't even start me on the banks, they're the real criminal element in this country, not us poor shmucks growing our little bit of herb.

    Yeah I know. I think I'll say it to them though, in the interest of good karma and all that. Life is giving me enough beatings as is...

    I think Nirvana's WW was my very first grow, or else it was Northern Lights. Comical now that I think back on it, I didn't have a flipping clue as to what I was doing! No lights except for the sun peeking through a small skylight window in a damp attic, no fans, miracle grow soil and some slow release nute tablet that I got from the local garden shop. 10 regular seeds, only 1 made it to the finish line and what I got was enough for 1 joint. But it was a tasty joint at that. :bigjoint:

    WW is good but would not use dutch passion or barneys farm.High yield is breeder dependent and grower too.
    Type in commercial strains in the google machine.

    All I had for my first grow was a 400w and a home made timber box.
    Grew 4 Euphoria by Dutch Passion.

    All grown in a 3 bed house in the city with no filter ! When I look back and think :wall:

    On the day of harvest a guy crashed a stolen car outside the house. The cops called house to house asking questions.

    I was in the sitting room cutting the ladies and the wife invites the cop into the hall for a natter ! The place was stinking to high heaven and to this day I can't figure out why the cop didn't say a word :???:

    @budsahoi Why don't you like Dutch Passion ? I've grown a lot of their strains and had no hassle with them. Mazar was my favourite :leaf:

    tommy shelby will come out on top as he always does, think poor arthur is for the chop i think...


    lights on, 3 weeks veg and she didn`t recover for a week.. well the week recovery is not bad thats grower and strain dependant really , try topping just before lights out might help with recovery, but you say flowers never grew on 5th node, but if you topped at 5th then you got 3/4 new colas? did you lst any branchs below the 5th at the same time as topping?

    hear you about life kicking your arse, like every week theres something ....

    theres also the other way, get a colour pheno or like you said a ww and charge twice the price .. you know yourself most smokers will loose there shit for some real frosty weed, knock it out in small bag no big deals unless they still going to pay top dollar...
