Good evening pgr ?

It's good to be able to get the time to come on here more often and interact with you all.

Its 6 weeks or so now until Christmas. And I've just started off my Christmas grow. Thinking about it, I should have taken the dry and cure process into consideration and added on another 4 weeks. So it'll be more like the end of January by the time I'll get to smoke the seedsman Auto Northern lights and Barney's farm Auto sin tra bajo. Seems like too long await until I'm stoned again. But I'm sure it'll be worth it. I'll probably take a whitey as I usually do when I've been off it for soo long

Anyway I decided that id start off this diary so that I could get help if I need it because I'm sure I will in a few weeks time. I've just added another 4 to the tent so that's 6 auto's in total.

4 x seedsman Northern lights
1 x Barney's farm Sin tra bajo
1 x Barney's farm malana bomb

The sin tra bajo along with 1 NL popped out the soil on Friday the 18th October, today its day 22 and they are my best looking auto's that I've grown. Is it a collaboration between the jack's magic soil which I'll always use now. And my invisible sun led panels or is it the lights on 24/0

The other 4 that went in today are on day 8 that's the remaining Nl's and malana bomb.

2 of the Nl's have a bit of yellowing about them while the malana bomb looks like its kicking off the same way as the sin tra bajo. If these 2 keep it up, I can see myself only buying barneys farm seeds until I've grown out their entire auto range. I've done this already with sweet seeds, Seed Stockers, Pyramid seeds and paradise seeds.

OK moving on.

For this grow ill be using
11 litre pots,
70% Jack's magic
20% perlite
10% ecothrive charge
Poundland grow, and pk boost.
Old timers plant magic bloom

I'll be growing in my cold ass loft again in a hydrolab 120 x 80 x 180 tent. I'll also be running a 1600w oil filled radiator to maintain temps. I won't be bothering with a carbon filter as I don't need to contain the smell as I've no neighbours. I'll also be running a small black orchid 4 inch intake fan that I often reverse and use to extract. As for the lighting it'll once again be my invisible sun led boards 4 x ISH120. The current light cycle atm is 24/0,
I was thinking about switching to 18/6 or 20/4. But Im unsure yet. It's the first time I've done 24/0 and maybe that's why these are my best looking auto's for day 22. but fk knows.

So yea I think that's about it. I won't mention those pesky thrips that ruined and absolutely devasted my last grow.

After a completely thorough clean of my grow tent and surrounding area I spotted one crawling about last week. The bug Clear Ultra Gun was at hand and I sprayed both the bajo and nl. So far I haven't seen anymore.

In the meantime I'll be bottom watering throughout this grow with a top watering once a month. I also plan to possibly introduce some predatory mites as a precaution but we'll see. Anyway I think that's it for the now. Just a few pictures to cap it all off and that will be me on my way.

I'll watering my plants later on tonight as they are due a feed... So Id like to know if it might be worth starting her on her first dose of grow nutes. So that's it. Woooo whoooo

Pictures will follow later on.. Thanks everyone and I hope you all have a pleasant Saturday night. ?

Nice one Stars...no neighbours...shit I'd have a house full of plants and a diesel genny Smile

Hold off on nutes until leaves start to go paler in colour...Jacks should feed in veg for at least 4 weeks without adding more

Cheesus what a difficult night I'm having after consuming 6 cans of holsten pils. I'm on a mission to buy some weed for the night as I've got a mento mad craving to get spangled and play my xbox one.ย 

ย 

I hate it when you finally get a reply from the dude and he says that he is waiting on the boy. Aww man I'm sick of waiting on the dam boy.ย 

Aww well. Looks like I'm not going to get. Bastards....ย 

OK so it's picture timeย 

Thanks for the likes and decisions to follow the diary.ย

Good evening percy growers and happy belated ? totally love this place now. Not overcrowded yet like some other forums. I just have to try and remain a regular visitor ?

TFI almost Friday. My days off are ahead of me. And I find them very difficult to cope with, when I'm off weed. I wish I had a weekend job.

Nevermind, I think it's day 25/26 for the sin tra bajo and Northern light ladies. The other 3 are on day 13. There is another seedling in there that's on day 5..... Bloody hell it's all confusing lol... The malana bomb which is part of the other 3 is further on than its 3 northern light sisters. Remember I'm running 4 nls, 1 malana bomb and 1 sin tra bajo.

Again thanks to the vault for the free barneys farm auto's. Delighted with their explosive growth so far.

Everything is looking good I think. The fan leafs on the sin tra bajo are some of the biggest I've seen. Almost bigger than my hands. I've been bottom watering since last weekend and I'm very happy with this technique that I'll be implementing into future grows. And so far I think the thrip situation has been prevented with the drying out of the first couple of inches of soil. Brilliant stuff.

So far on this grow too I have been only using ashbeck Mineral water from tesco. And I haven't yet fed them any nutes. I'm eager to start doing so though, but I'll wait until some of you guys think I should. Also this is the first time where I've been running my light 24/0. I decided at the start of this grow too that I'd switch to 18/6 after the 2nd week but that didn't happen.

So I was thinking with the current state of my 26 day olds would you give them some darkness or would you just carry on with the 24/0.

And as alread mentioned should I start feeds. I was noticing that around the halfway mark the fan leaves are starting to maybe get a bit paler.

The weather here has been unbelievably cold with a reading of minus 5.5 last night and this morning we got our first spell of wintry snow showers. The temperature outside the tent as I type is 3 degrees while the temp inside is 24.9 with an Rh of 72% which I find odd as I'm currently running no intake or extraction.

I've just got a tower fan in there to shift the air about. I've noticed too how the minimum setting on the oil radiator is struggling to keep the temp above 23 degrees, I don't want to crank my oil radiator up too much as I've noticed how it can be be expensive to run (can this weather just fcuk right off please) and whenever I run my little extraction fan the temp drops below 20. So atm I think you could say that I'm running a closed loop setup.

Anyway I think that'll do for the now. I'm in my bed atm so I'll get pictures up tomorrow.

Cheers everyone and all the best.

Im growin my autos on 24hrs light and i been feedin Nutrients since the first week after they popped out the ground,

Its my first grow but i would say to keep the 24hr light since u struggling to keep the heat up that way u can keep ur heater turned down,ย 

But sounds like u managing so far, have u got any of the passive vents open on the tent to cycle fresh air since u not got intake or extraction? Just curious lol

Thanks for that Scottish.ย 

I always wondered if there would be sufficient feeds already in soil so take plants up until the 3rd or 4th week. I know the jack's magic contains seaweed so I don't know if feeding seedlings nutes is the way forward.ย 

As for the my invisible sun led boards. They don't generate any heat unless they are cranked up on full power. And even then I'd still need additional heat from another source. I did an experiment at the beginning of this grow to see what temperature I'd reach with just using the led boards and cranked on full. I still couldn't get the temps up past 24 degrees. It's an excellent light for summer. I wish I'd kept my 600w hps.

It's been well documented that auto's don't need any period of darkness. There's a bit of debate whether they should be kept under 24 hours of light, and from what Iโ€™ve read thereโ€™s isnโ€™t a huge difference in yield, so just to take the cost of electricity into consideration I'd prefer to switch to either 20/4 or 18/6. But on this grow I might just leave it on 24/0. We'll see.ย 

How are your ladies looking. I'm sure you already have some pictures upload so I'll try and find them later on.ย 

Atm I'd be happier if my auto's started flowering as I'm happy enough with the veg they've already produced. I just don't want to be without weed this Christmas but it seems like I very well maybe when I add on the days of dry and cure.ย 

Thanks again.ย

Yeah I'm on a perlite coco mix bruv didnt realise u in soil I'm not sure with soil there's a few bodies around ere tht does use soil they can best help with feed schedules or advice there,

But yeah i dont think it would make much of a difference in yield runnin lights 24hrs i was just thinking because you had mentioned the oil heater was just thinking it woul mean less cost running the heater higher but i really didn't think of the cost of running the lights compared too the heater would jus dipend on whats cheapest imo.ย 

But yeah my ladies are growing fast i have topped and just gave them there second go at lst last night an there already stood back up pretty again lol i have a few pics up an a couple vids check it out when ya get a min, the only major problem i have came across yet is my own stupidity when im high an spill the odd bit of food on them so the odd leave has the odd burn lol

An yeah tell me about it bruv its dry round my way just now and my harvest is right around xmas but then its gotta dry???

Good afternoon all you Sunday Church worshippers. I've got something so cool to tell you all.ย 

Butt first I'll update my diary. Hohoho.ย 

Its day 29 I think for the sin tra bajo and Northern light ladies.

A bit of a Carry on again with the return of thrips. I'm starting to believe that they are crawling all over my house. It's the second 4th stage wee beastie that I've found.

It led me to totally saturating all my plants in the bug Clear Ultra Gun. I remember the last time I used the bug spray that after a week the fan leaves especially, took a bit of discolouration. This time I decided to wait 20 mins for the spray to kill off any thrips,ย 

afterwards I took each plant downstairs into my en suite shower to wash off the excess spray. Once I had the plants back inside my tent they were all looking totally wrecked, Today they've all perked back up. So it's a small relief. On another note it seems that 2 of the other northern lights are having a moment to themselves while 1 is developing yellow growth. And the other I don't really know how to describe it.ย 

ย 

Today too is the day where I decided to switch to a 20/4 cycle. I'm eager for them to start preflowering and I believe they are starting too already. I think the next time I feed them I'll give them some nutes. But we'll see how it goes.ย 

ย 

Its been a difficult weekend by trying to not think about contacting my old dealer and asking if he has any smoke.ย 

ย 

But omg this is unbelievable.... wait till you read this. Last night I thought I'd head off out for a few pints at my local. After a few and as you do, it was time to pee, so I went into the men's room where I could smell the reek of cannabis very very strongly. Surely some cnut wasn't smoking weed in here. I'll cut a long story short thoug.ย  The smell was that great I didn't want to leave the toilet. So lol I went into a cubicle and put down the toilet seat and took a seat. As I inhaled each time through my nose.... What an amazing smell. Lemony, Pine, sweet, cough syrup. Dank dank Aww man

I could of easily pulled out my winky and had a **** because the smell was turning me on... Lol.. As Im sat there, I look up at the ceiling and I noticed how one of the ceiling tiles has been removed, and not put back correctly. I don't know what provoked me into standing up on the toilet seat but when I did the smell was even stronger. So I lifted the tile away, pulled out my phone, turned on the torch and you'll never guess what was sitting up in there hahaha a big bag of weed ? wtf. Lmfao there's maybe enough here to keep me going until Christmas. I couldn't fcuking believe it. At that point. I knew I was having this but how do I get it out of here without looking shady as fcuk.. My pint was finished anyway and I did plan to have another. But I was wanting out of here as quickly as possible.. So I compressed the bag as tightly as I could and then stuffed the bag down into my pants lol. I managed to get tae fcuk out of there without any bother and still managing to thank the barmaid for a lovely pint.. I knew her anyway.. Talk about cosmic ordering. I really believe in that now and I believe that weed was meant for me to find hahaha. Unbelievable stuff. Turns out there was precisely 64 grams of weed in that bag and whatever it is it's the best weed I've ever smoked in my life. I wish I knew what it was lol. Awww man. The stuff is so sticky too an just smells phenomenal. Has to be one of thee best moments of my life. Today on Facebook after reading the rant issued by someone. And by putting 2 and 2 together it turns out that this weed belonged to this person and this person is a complete and utter arsehole. So it's all good. I felt like commenting saying I found your weed and you ain't getting it back. But then that would cause great friction. What a massive boost to my mental health. I declared that this weed was white widow but it could be anything else.ย 

Awww man enjoy yer Sunday everyone. I'm away to tesco to get some custard Dohnuts as I've got a mad dose of the munchies. ???

Good evening percy pumpers ?

Its time for that update. I didn't think I'd manage an update at all because I've been feeling like a zombie lately... If you read my previous post, that weed has already forced me into not going into work this week at all as each an every morning when I wake up I'm feeling totally spangled from the night before. And the only way I feel better again is to wake and bake lol. And I've already smoked almost an oz since the weekend. ? I really need to calm down otherwise there'll be none left. Jeeeezo.. It's true what they say the more you have the more you smoke. Anyway

Its day 33 for the nl and sin tra bajo
And I've lost track of how old the other 4 are but I think they on day 23 but that's just a guess.

OK so where are we I'm getting sidetracked.

Ive been having problems with condensation running down the walls within the inside of my tent with pooling appearing on the flooring. It was even starting to form on the plasterboard down below... I knew I should have insulated my loft when I started growing up there. I'll get round to doing that after Christmas. In the meantime I've draped 4 single duvets over the 4 sides of my tent and this has helped by stopping the outer walls of the tent from getting cold. So no more beads of condensation running the the interior walls. I've also turned on my extraction fan and allowed for a passive intake as this too has helped keep the rh down and stops the moisture or condensation from forming. I also had to crank up my oil rad to almost maximum in order for temps to be a little more stable... You'll see by the screenshot what we are sitting at...I don't know if I'd prefer the temp to be a little higher with lights on... I can't seem to get the temp to rise unless I go back to a closed loop setup. It's bloody cold outside and it seems growing in winter without insulation is challenging.

Flowering has now started to take effect and the introduction of 4 hours of darkness has really kicked them off. I now believe that darkness is totally beneficial but that's just what seems to be working for me. I don't see the point in running lights for 24/0. I suppose it's better to save on the leccy.

Another thing that's been a concern is the fan leaves on the barneys farm sin tra bajo auto. Alot of her fan leaves are discoloured and crisping up. I don't know what's causing this. The seedsman northern light auto is not showing the same discolouration. Yet they have both been treated the same.. I wonder if this is down to the sin tra bajo not being keen on the bug Clear Ultra Gun. I don't know. Another thing that I thought of was the splatter from the condensation. But fcuk knows. Regardless of this both plants are beasting it.

I think soon im going to ditch the tent and form an insulated room in my loft because I'm running out of space with 6 plants in a 120 x 60 x 160 tent. And I'm already wanting to start off some more beans. I'm greedy when it comes to weed and I so far haven't been able to obtain a never-ending supply of weed.

Earlier tonight was the first time too that I decided that Id start on the nutrients. I didn't bother with grow nutes so went straight onto the bloom nutrients. I'm very happy too that the jack's magic is definitely my new go to growing medium. This along with ecothrive charge and perlite is going to be my preferred soil mix. I used to use b&q verve but the stuff nowadays is total shite... On another thought I believe that this is the last time that I'm doing auto's. My next grow will consist of some photoperiods as I've never grown these before. So it'll be fun having the power to control vegging and then decide when to switch to 12/12 to induce flowering.

I think that's about it for the now. Its now time to getting mungreld an play my xbox one. Gaming is so much fun when your fcuked outta yer face.

All the best everyone and I'll be back again over the weekend for another update with some pictures. For the now I'll leave you with a screenshot of the cctv camera that's located in my tent where I can check on there progress without having to go up into my loft. ?
