  1. Sjoe you gonna make me clean my entire house now xD didnt know spores are that resilient. Gonna do a proper cleaning before my next grow, thanks for all the advice
  2. Gauteng here, so doesnt really shoot up that much during the night. Run it during the day so I can move them outside during any long-term power outages (a regular, but hasnt during this grow). Ill take a look at a dehumidifier then, any one specific you'd recommend? thanks man for the advice
  3. Yeah i understand, adding the box fan will then imrpove the overall airflow. And yeah will be cleaning everything. Its on during the day, 6:30 am -> 6:30 pm. Temps inside tent are around 16 to 23 C Yeah those features are a good reason to rather go for the ac infinity, will do some more research and consider my options. The secret jardin seems to have knobs to set automatic humidity and temp goals for it to keep.
  4. Eish ill look at getting that Bio sulphur next time. Guess for now ima just try to pluck all the pm and see how far i can get this grow. And ok ill look at a box fan well below the canopy it sits at 50-70%, peaks after watering. And above canopy never above like 60%, lows of 40%. The AC infinity looks great just a tad expensive, see some shops are stocking secret jardin inlines, any opinion on those? Or is it more worth it to go for the AC?
  5. So currently doing my personal best grow so far, but seems to be going sideways eish. Rear two plants are Crescendo clones, front two plants are Forbidos clones. Veged for under 2 months, flower week 5~, ~310w LEDs. I am having persistent issues with powdery mildew throughout the tent and one plant decided to go hermie on me. I need advice on how to proceed, see attatched some pics I tried to take of the PM I find throghout my plants. Its not like massive spots, but more inside some nugs or leaves that just sit in bad vented areas if i had to guess, but a lot of these small spots, really a lot. My current treatment plan was AQ-SF spray, about 800ml for entire tent mixed with ~40ml AQ-SF, every third night with the fans off. It has been kinda working to keep things dormant, but the small spots are just getting more and more. I was considering spot treating all the PM i can find with a milk/water spray but need some advice on this before I harm my nugs. I have at my disposal AQ-SF, systemic fungicide, milk, maybe oils and other household stuff. Any advice appreciated! My best guess for my bad ventilation is the extractor fan is not strong enough, I have 2 oscilating fans, one doesnt turn anymore but ay, and a 4-inch RAM inline extractor inside my 1x1m tent. Next investment might be another extractor, so any recommendations around 1-3k would be appreciated! Then secondly, my closest, right, plant is shooting piesangs. Dont even know why as it was one of my more-healthy plants. My current plan is to just pluck as I find them, but still have about 3+ weeks to go if I had to guess. Any advice on this? maybe harvest this one plant earlier if it gets out of control? thats if the PM doesnt get to it first...
  6. Great online service and after sales assistance. Better prices than most places on equipment and has Mr Puffs Smoke Room for other needs.
  7. New shop popped up here, great offerings for people in the area. Save a lot on shipping costs. Your basic grow shop with everything you need. Including great starter kits for good prices. Also sells clones on the side at cannacuts.co.za
  8. Making my own light like in the link you suggested could really save me a lot of money. I'll definitely look into making my own light instead of buying. Thanks for the advice!
  9. Attatched is a two images of the biggest nug from my first harvest. The plant was barely 40cm tall and had a LOT of stress as I didnt really plan ahead when growing it.


    The other two imgaes is of a bud site on my more successful outdoor plant. Really proud of this one.


    Just sharing 🙂





  10. Good timing! We'll see what mine looks like at the end of the month, might just stand a chance with my first successful plant!
  11. You really have beautiful plants! My one outdoor is also about at the same stage of flower as your pineapple chunk. Looks similar at the bud sites as yours. Do you feed them anything extra or just water them and hope for the best?
  12. Thanks for the reply, ill go througb all those suggested stores and see what I can get for myself. Thanks!
  13. I would really love to be able to spend more but money is too tight to get a bigger budget. I'm considering rather to buy bits and pieces over time... You really have a good suggestion with the entire light situation, I'll definitely take a look at rather buying 2 lights from them. Thanks for that. I'll look at bigger fans as you suggested. And definitely will look for a website that doesnt add the markup. You really have good points about the noise levels and it will be great to have more control over the airflow. I'll take a look if I can get a 1x1 or preferrably then a 1.2x1.2 tent then. The used market has a lot of options for tents at least. And yeah, you're right about rather investing more now... The lights I'll try to get new rather than used. Thanks for the reply!
  14. Yeah the light is really taking up a lot of my budget... I'll stay away from takealot then and see if I can invest a bit more in the light to ensure it works good for 2- 3 plants. The 2nd hand market really is great, and yeah, as you said, it'll save me money. I have seen quite a few nice listings, will see if I can share a few on the forum to discuss with people. The nutes I'll have to learn a bit more about yeah... Well currently I am just using organic potting soil, but when I get the indoor setup, I am more than willing to invest in better mediums and see what works best for me. As this will be my first ever indoor, I'm willing to experiment and learn with different mediums. Thank you for you reply!
  15. Hi everyone, I am currently looking to purchase an indoor setup for myself. Nothing fancy or big. Just enough to be a new hobby. I am always willing to invest in more stuff later, just dont have the money right now. So basically my budget is Around R5k. I am willing to go over, but anything lower is always preferred. I got a quote form MarijuanaSA and want a few opinions on it, or just a whole new quote for those that are willing to make one. It seems to have all the important items in it. I can buy a few items that do the same at lower prices, like on takealot. I am looking at 0.8x0.8 or a 1x1 tents. What would be better? I want to grow around 2 to 3 plants at a time. Then, I would really like a cheaper light to use but just cant seem to find a good option that is less than 1k... So basically, I am asking for assistance in selecting all the basic items for my first ever indoor grow. Whatever saves me the most money and gives me enough items to get away for at least 2 harvests before investing more. I already have soil and pots from my outdoor plants. Any help will really be appreciated as I barely know what I am buying with indoor growing equipment. I have a small list of just a few items that I am putting together to use as a purchasing guide. Here it is for a general idea of what im currently looking at:
