    What up peepz. Just a update on the above grow. FAIL.. seeds didnt sprout. Did a little bit of investigating. Seems like the taproots barely grew from the time of potting. Was abit upset. But then again . They were bag seeds. Frustrations aside. We ready to go again. After some long convos with @CreX. Decided to invest abit more to get going and be less disapointed each time. So. Starting from scratch again. Looking to go the distance this time. Made some purchases. 1. 150w cool white LED light for veg. (Highly reccomended by Crex) 2. Extractor fan. 3. 2 galon fabric pots. Wann keep a small stealthy grow. ( easy to upgrade later) 4. Had the Seagro nutrient. Will stick with this to keep cost down for now. 5. Biobizz bloom. ( reccomended by the store guy. As excelent and works well with my grow medium) 6. Freedom farms formular 1. ( guy who sells it. Says propbably the best in SA. Works very well nd easy to grow with. 7. Got a hygro meter for humidty and temp monitoring. 8. Ordered a PH meter. Tds meter. Mini miroscope thingy. And a pocket scale of wish. Should take about a month or so. ( try and make do until then. Reccomendations are welcome untill then) 9. Built a small grow box. Floor area 500x700 mm x 1meter high. With inlet holes covered with mesh. Extractor fan. Led light for veg only. Wraped the inside in some foil. Oh and it is a cardboard box. 10. Lastly and i think from my experience most importantly. I got me some seeds online. Biltong and buds worked Out quite reasonable and had a massive selection. I took 5 seeds. 2 photo and 3 autos. I think with my setup and low grow requirements i am gona mainly grow autos. But lets see how it goes. Also. Before the Mrs started asking alot of questions about my spending recently. I bought some seeds and started to grow some herbs for her aswell. Could use the grow box to veg these aswell. N make it seem like im doing a little bit for her too. Marigolds. Daisyz. Mint. Thyme. Lettuce. Corriander. Chives. Tomatoe. Chilli Pics below.

    from the pictures i would quickly say that you have what seems like Potassuim def, coupled with magnesuim def, coupled with increased storage of nitrogen , but i wouldnt say its toxic yeeeeeet. my advice, as contrary to @skunkpharm as it may seem. i would mix a feed of epsom salts (NOTCALMAG - we dont want the calcuim nitrate in the callmag, just the mag) and your GHE bloom nutes at labled dose of whatever per liter. and then the next few feeds only with water - depending on the reaction and maybe mix 50ml of milk into the feed for the microbes, maybe alil mollasses and you should be fine. Identify the problem - make one adjustment - monitor be careful not to over fix an issue

    digikey had free express shipping at the time. Aliexpress goes per weight.. so was cheaper for me to order from 2 different suppliers. If you buy just one QB 288, do NOT take the 240 driver, take a 120.. other way you waste way to much energy or need a dimmer. The 120 works perfect and the draw is correct. The 240 draws way more as it just tries to squeeze everything inside the board.. one reason my boards were way to hot. Now.. not even sure I need a heat sink, hand warm. So select the driver matching your boards wattage. 1 QB288 IM301B/H - HLG 120H-48(A, B or AB) 2 QB288s - HLG 240H-48(A,B or AB) If you do not want to use a dimmer, just don't connect one and it will run 100%, works on all three driver versions A, B and AB. But you still have the option.. I go with B usually as I like to connect them to a Arduino system and dim from that source.

    What about this being a hit? It's one thing to jack all their shit... But it's another thing to pull the trigger and end a life. And to go back after the looting to do the shooting... Sounds pretty hairy to me

    Scrap yards, not the car type, but old fridge repair or service centers, have old or broken possibly? You could also go for a strip of sun visor, cut to size and hanging (hey @Ill_Evan?) I too want to see one cut up🤣 That foam rubber is good stuff, it lasts and seals, and cheap enough. Make latches or catching points on the corners or the cupboard doors to pull them toward the frame if you want even better seal.

    I only discovered that there’s something like washing your buds after I found some PM on my plants while harvesting. I searched the web to find out what can be done about it other than chucking it into the bin. I found the following video and did everything this guy suggested to do and it worked great. I also kept a bud that wasn't effected by PM and dried it along with my washed buds. I compared the washed bud vs the unwashed bud and couldn't tell a difference.

    Reading this headline is hard enough. I honestly cannot believe it... We couldn't have had a better person leading the fight for cannabis freedom in our country.... his departure leaves an immediate void that only he could fill. No one else was/has been willing to go as far as him and Myrtle have gone to ensure that we achieve the rights that we cannabis users deserve. It's because of him and Myrtle that we enjoy the rights that we now currently have, and they still continued to fight for more ... Jules we are forever indebted to the work you have done for us. YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. RIP good man! https://www.dispatchlive.co.za/news/2020-07-03-dagga-activist-julian-stobbs-fatally-shot-in-armed-robbery/ As for this country... I lose faith day by day...

    Your welcome, biggest issue in commercial soils is poorly composted materials generally create a "hot" soil that really holds onto moisture. In addition like mentioned above the bark chips rob the soil of Nitrogen while it is decomposing, after decomposition the Nitrogen will again become available to the plant. If you are mixing up yournown soils its good to let them cool off for a month or two after adding ammendments, as in the case of mixing ur own supersoils. Compost needs to be decomposed very well, same with wormcastings. Else there could be issues. Last tip is to use something like dolomite lime to help control PH and it will also add Calcium and Magnesium to the soil. Do some searching online for soil recipes to get an idea about correct ratios etc if are interested in supersoils.

    I don't even think cops would get involved. If legal things needed to happen for people to get their money back it would be done via CPA, lawyers and banks/payment gateways. In terms of the seeds, that'd be the state's decision whether or not to pursue, and because parliament is still setting up perimeters, the judge would either put it indefinitely on-hold or throw it out. Some in the seedbank industry have medical research licenses and work with the SA Medical Research Council so I don't think anyone will be shutting down seedbanks anytime soon. It is what probably gives all these fly-by seedbanks so much confidence at the moment. This is an emerging industry to the common folk, barely in it's infancy, although existing for so long. To people only just now getting involved with cultivating cannabis in general it could be quite overwhelming with all the sources available.

    Yip. @Cannabist has in fact done this twice before. On those two occasions they managed to fulfill every order within a month and within the time constraints we placed them under. I've given them shit everytime then. In fact I was the one that opted for them to be booted the last time. We are way past a month in this moment and it seems to be way more orders this time too. Their vendor status ends at the end of this month and so reap the consequences. So I don't know what else you're looking for from 420sa specifically my bruh.

    I really dont want to discourage you, in all honesty I stay away from a cooler, and something small as such you linked is not going to make a big change at all. Aircon or next grow swop day and night around. Maybe others have got a cooler and can advise, but my understanding was not worth it.

    Understood... I just really think that they are doing the forum harm and should not be associated with Cannabist... It's sad but true... It would of been real easy for them to put people at ease but some still had absolutely no coms from them..

    Alright, cool. I'm hoping that the grow cabinet will be completely ready by the weekend. I could have it ready enough by tomorrow though.. I already have a nice 150w from @Master_G hanging in the cabinet (will take pics soon) .

    Which is correct to say that the extraction fan would bring down the RH as the temp drops, though the trick comes in bringing in that air to the space that is already at humidity you want, and not the relative temperature based humidity, as stated is more suited for human comfort and not for plant growth. I took some time to get this right and in practice and have seen the difference first hand, and again not here to stand on toes or force my understanding on anyone else, I love a good debate and that is the only way we learn new things.

    Maybe just take an average if you're doubtful of either device? Would be difficult to be objective about their accuracy without lab grade equipment to make a definite comparison.

    Looks like it will do for now. The hooks have not budged a bit and when I tug on them they feel firm. Will only upgrade when I switch lights, got some brackets with hooks already. Girls are looking perky so I am feeling good about this, they only gona be in here till the tent is empty then gona use it for clones in future. As I mentioned I had a "clone dome conversion situation" and this is what came of it. At the time I had probably 10 to 12 clones, with a couple that got root bound and some that where not worth it. I only got space for 4 plants indoors, planted few in random potting soil in pots outside. These are the 4 that got material pots and prepped to go into the "flower tent" after I harvest what's in there now. These are: 3 x Banana Hammock 1 x Cheese (front left) -small one in the corner is a Super Lemon Haze cut. I've topped all the tops, except for the one plant in front right, but I think I took this photo before or during.

    Starting off a bit backwards, but better late than never - Hi all! I’m new to the growing scene, and just happy to be able to have so much useful info at my fingertips indoor growing - Veg 600Mh / Flower 600Hps Capetown winter climate makes for a bumpy ride during flower. However no complaints just yet. Attempting full organic growing. Open minded fellow and think I might be growing till the day I die. 🥦

    What @Bakstein420 said. This way you are also sealing the cupboard of any passive air flow or entry, and gearing yourself towards the sealed unit for CO2 later and capable of holding it inside.

    Hey brother, You seem to have everything okay, just as you point out, maybe the humidity can go up slightly for veg, and seedlings especially. Aim for 50 to 60, but 40 wont harm. Yes, in summer when it's hot, and like me have a dehumidifier running, temps can get high and around 30 to 32deg.

    That has so many variables it's not easy to predict as such. How long you veg for, how much stretch in that strain and how fast and well it grows or a certain time frame is also different. Here is an example of a plastic pot, smaller than a 3 gallon fabric, and rushed to flower as a teenager. "Right, you old enough now, go produce🤣"

    I also will support Cannabist once the logistics are straightened out. I don't think it would be fair for him to lose all his customers, everyone needs to make a living. I highly doubt he's stealing the cash. Sent from my POCOPHONE F1 using Tapatalk

    Eish post me which internet tuned you that. MH is veg, HPS is flower. Like I say ching chong, I think you should raise your temps at night, and a method of doing that with bulbs is to keep the lights on 24hrs. Ain't no problem. 18-6 is good to help with temp management when things are too hot. It is also the gold standard of light timing in veg. However, 24hrs is also just as fine. I like it when you talk foreign to me.

    People dont seem to grasp communication, and promise what they cant deliver. Just be upfront, say how it is, and others will respect that and you for doing so... You make a promise and dont deliver, it doesn't reflect well. So many people want work or opportunity to make a living, and others are nonchalant about their current. Flippin SAD

    Lets talk how to make easy hash. I will keep it more on the simple side, some decisions you simply have to make yourself, other steps are give and are rather a must. But as none of the steps are rushed, a rather relaxing procedure. First step is getting your grids.. which ones, I leave that selection to yourself, as not in the mood to hear: bought the wrong sizes because of you! 😁 I use 2 max.. (Google, decide, you can always reorder), I know people using 4 (i just think is a bit over done, if you consume the stuff and don't want to sell in different qualities. Depending on which "take" i rub, i skip the fine one completely, only use the fine one with take 1. I use a cheap Car massage system and put one side of the grids (rather firm connected) on one of those vibrators, set to max. This is not needed at all, I am just a lazy fag ^^ And you need a hard, very smooth surface below your grid.. mirror/glass works best. Once you have the grids of your choice, next order you have to do is dry ice (www.dryice.co.za, 20kg, R816 + shipping, 3mm pellets) and some clean silicon kitchen gloves or non powdered (like always when you handle weed) medical gloves. The dry ice will last 2-3 days, so order that best to the date you want to use it. When you store it, wrap some additional blankets around and place it beside your air intake for the tent 😉 Free CO2 generator. There is no need to put your dry left over into the freezer. You just wait 10 minutes longer with wet material, the dry ice does what it says.. it drys very quick ^^ and no liquid left overs. Material I use are fluff buds and material from dressing the A class buds I want to keep. Those are the GSC fluffies, made no pic of the WoW material i hashed, but looked 1 to 1 the same. GSC gets bubbled. In your bucket with the material you dump some dry ice pellets and shake it in in steps. In a 10 liter bucket I drop around 4 cups of dry ice. The 20kg box you get is HUGE ^^ would guess you can easy do 15 huge trees with that box. I had 5 Wonder Woman total. Used not even one quarter. Once it stops "steaming" the water is gone, mix carefully and check that none of those pellets enter your glove.. or you will end with a freeze burn, dry ice is -80C. When you take a bud out and squeeze it.. it should just crumble to dust.. ready to go. Take a hand full out and rub it firm in between your hands. the dry ice pellets will help you get the material fine. Don't take to much, but you are also in no rush, all will stay super cold. No need to dig in your fingers.. just move it gentle without any down force over the grid, that way your fingers stay warm. What falls through looks more like a fog. Depending how long you work the more you change quality. I work each batch around 60-90 seconds. Keep the material, you can do more than 1 take. First will be super sticky and very easy to form a ball, third to fourth will be more powdery and demanding a heat press to get some potency out. When done, remove the material into a second container and rub on a next batch with your hands till done. The fine grid will have collected 90% of the pollen you filtered out. I add some dry ice pellets to that pollen and let it cool down again. Then use a old credit card to gently move it over the fine grid with as little down force as possible. When you are happy, you put the batches in bags. To work with the fine grid, the lower you get the temperature, the better will be the result. (was take Nr4, so a bit greenish) The left overs from 2 10L containers And the result of the first take You can use a pollen press, your hands (gloves) or leave it in the natural chunk it forms by gravity inside the bag. Depending to that, color will change. But is very soft and very sticky... If you have a phone call and have to leave during a batch is on the grid, add some dry ice and let it cool down, that way you don't mess up your grid. Cleaning the grids, any soft brush will do.. if you cool the grid down with some dry ice, you get it rather clean.. just careful.. very cold things like to break way easier. Freeze burns hurt.. keep that in mind before you get one and don't "rub" down when you work the material.. only slide it gentle over the grid. Rest.. good luck and have fun 😄
