Glad to join up here, been listening avidly to the podcast...just kick back and listen its like chatting with a bunch of mates 🙂

As the name might suggest I'm another one from Oz, and looking to get into growing mainly for my chronic pain (which I've had since 2001) Weirdly enough I developed that a bit after I stopped smoking in the late 90s heh

So yeah this is going to be a bit of a learning curve! But I'm encouraged by everyone here that its possible and looking forward to learning ...slowly collecting all the equipment, very slowly due to lockdown lol

I'm planning on using coco, seems to be newb-friendly. I hope heh

If you haven't already purchased your coco I don't think you can get any more noob friendly then the living soil stuff it pricey but u just feed with water no mixing chemicals/feeds together, testing ppm/ec daily just doing my first grow with it and already see me sticking with it for life. The fact it reusable soil too is awesome! Down the line be very cost efficient plants have loved it even in seedling stage when they most sensitive! 

 

Ecothrive is brand I'm currently using that was recommended to me on here! 

Was tempted to do coco myself but I choose the easier option I believe and have no regrets

Awesome, thanks Macky! 👍  Yeah I figured coco would be the go, especially how passionate you guys are about its benefits (well, some of you guys lol)

I'm sure I will have lots of questions; its just jumping in the deep end a bit at first.

Thanks very much for the warm welcome mate 🙂

Hey @lucas3330 🙂

@macky that’s coz coco needs more attention than soil haha 😂

I get it spending time with the plants is enjoyable however that’s cool for you young guns when your falling apart it’s a pita.

Khukoz not bashing coco btw it’s good stuff.

Oh and welcome to percys nvm me I’m just stoned on bubblehash again 🤪

@zhukoz Welcome to Percys mate, theres always room here for another Ozzy 😀

I only started growing at the end of last year so im new to it all too, but its way easier than you would think, I watched too many youtube videos and it put me off the idea of growing for years cos it looked too complicated. But soon as you get that first seed in the ground your fuckin flying and before you know it your smokin the best weed youve ever tasted.

Any problems you run into the guys here guide you through it. It removes all the stress from the grow when you know there will be a stoner along any minute (or hour 😆) to help you out.lol 😉 👍
