Hi everybody thought I'd share.Β 


This is the grow i mentioned in my introduction the other day when my mrs and my lad said they where growing tomatoes and strawberrys and I said I wanted to grow something in the back garden too 😊 she reluctantly agreed lol. It was very difficult to balance the humidity levels all through out because some days it was scorching hot and other days it was pouring down with rain. (did have a humidifier in there) But I managed to finish the grow without any mould.. I left it as long as I could.. A few days longer and I think I would have lost her to mold as it would have probably kicked in. The tent had a couple of cheap fans and a couple of cheap lights that I though I'd try. When I was at home I'd bring her out to sit in the sun with me. The sun did all the work really. It was more of a fun experiment that I really enjoyed doing. The smell started to get really strong as she grew but my neighbours didn't seem to notice. I can't remember what the strain was now... I used 50% soil, 25% coco and 25% perlite and basic canna nurltrients. Didn't weigh the yeald  but I got a reasonable amount and gave most of it to my sister (maybe a couple of ounces at least) . Sorry for being vague I should keep a diary really. Would highly recommend anyone to do it for fun to see if they can pull it off 😊 hope this post worked right as its my first that includes pics

hehe Ive used one of those green house tents for an outside grow before, had heaps of moisture problems. the drama vs the stealth I was trying to achieve didnt end up being worth it for me.

@donkeycongo I feel ya mate πŸ˜ƒ I found myself wiping the inside ceiling as the moisture was building up and on scorching days it was like a desert inside... One extreme to the other. Good fun and a nice challenge.. I put a lot of it down to luck but I deserve a incy wincy but of credit for being persistentπŸ˜ƒ

Β 

I was listening to high on home grown podcast last night about guerilla grows... Would love to do one of them.. Some good tips on that episode too πŸ‘

@spliffyman420 Nice, good stuff man. One of my first grows I was high one day and the sun was shining so I thought I would take my plant outside for a laugh, It felt amazing just seeing a cannabis plant sitting in the sun outside my house.. but im not sure what was most surprising, the fact that there was a cannabis plant outside the house or the fact that the sun was actually shining 🀣

Feel free to start up a diary here anytime you want too mate πŸ™‚Β
