    I grew for 15 years in dwc and we’ve had 50 oz plants but the first time I switched to coco the huge difference in quality of flower made me never look back. Can’t beat the growth rate in dwc I agree but the flowers never hit peak expression and taste is always lacking. Yield per plant is amazing in dwc but I find my density in coco is superior and overall my gpw is about the same. I try and focus on a thriving rhizosphere these days and multiple light spectrums. Also a slow 60/60 slow dry and dry trim make a huge impact on finished product. But I do miss growing out those huge bangers!

    I'm growing in a mix of soil/perlite/Coco.
    The soil is a mix of Black Magic (quite expensive to be honest for what it is) mixed with cheap potting soil. Then I add perlite, about 30% of the final volume will be perlite, and his time around I've only used about 10-15% coco, just to make the soil mix go further.
    I add Mycorrhizal, just the cheap Wilko stuff.
    I'm still tweaking everything with each new grow.


    I'm still learning, but I have a feeling my current grow will be my highest yield yet....mainly because I've actually filled the tent this time, but also because im learning as I go.

    Regs are cheap as chips but yer thats a good deal.

    I have the impression we got hacked again but didnt want to ask as all to common these days.

    Herbies has 20% off all orders for 4 days for 420 but no other deals worth mentioning.

    The Maverick are usually £70 alone haha.
    Some breeders go crazy with prices though (even for regs) I've seen packs for £100's. Way out of my price range.

    Yeh I was disappointed with most the sales this year. Greenpoint had 50% off everything, others offering 10-20% seemed a bit weak. I seen attitude had a massive selection of freebies, but I have most of them already and I don't need anymore single seeds at the moment.

    I'm hoping to have quite a few seeds in my currentt grow, I attempted to pollinate some lower branches....time will tell, it's my first attempt.

    I found 2 Seeds in the very last nuget of Girls scout cookies, from my last grow. I think with such few seeds from the whole plant it's not a fell Hermie? definitely didn't see any sacs or bannanas forming at any time.. obviously it did somewhere though.

    Ignore the herm debate and consider most seed will be fine to plant. Fingers crossed you get seeds :-)

    For me hermying is in the genetics of what your growing, massive lights leaks may cause it but will probs ruin it, other than that if you have a random hermie I think it’s genetics myself not something your doing so you have to be patient, tis unfortunate though

    I once wrote that the hermie trait 'is an independant protein seperate of the sexual genetics thats harwired and unbreedable".

    Mostly its an awesome trait that allows the plant to vastly shorten the distance the pollen travels in the bad and wet years.

    It is noticed that stress is one of the main triggers hence why most posts are from newer growers.

    I find it almost impossible to get one now but i miss the free seed.

    Question time.... how do different people deal with temps in the summer in your tent? Much harder than growing in the winter! Humidity can also be more of an issue in the summer I’ve found, so what are the different ways people deal with it?
