  1. Hi hoping ive registered very new any advice greatly appreciated  

  2. hello ,i would like to make you a question about an issue i have with my plants.

  3. Auto Seed Run and Photo's

    I understand fully. When one becomes experienced, one understands the meaning and value of quality.
  4. Lip

    What strain are you growing, Lip?
  5. Weeks Before Seed

    Looking good. Keep us informed.
  6. King's Kush day 7 12 - 12 dwc

    Did you flush her? If not, she might be a bit harsh to smoke. I would recommend switching her to just plain water for the remaining time to help her rid her system of nutrients and salts.
  7. need advice

    Excellent choice for first grow is white widow.
  8. white widdow auto outdoor - having some problems

    Never before heard of birds attacking cannabis, but I guess it's not impossible. Sparrows? Unlikely, except if they wanted to eat the seeds, but your plants arent so far along yet. Now ducks or geese or chickens, that's a different matter. I imagine those birds could easily make short work of a cannabis plant. By the way, an autoflower is not disturbed by removing lower leaves. In fact, the removal of lower leaves and shaded, unproductive lower branches excites the plant to increase growth and production in the upper regions. What autoflower plants don't like is the topping of the growth tips. Because the autoflower plant has a limited lifespan, it has relatively little time to recover from a topping session to produce the new mature and productive colas.
  9. DWC advice needed

    Copied and pasted from the end of your previous topic "Second Grow": Cindy, for hydroponics, you will need to monitor not only pH but also EC. I highly recommend the EC-meter from Blue Labs called the Truncheon. It costs a little more than others, but it is well worth it. You will like it. Before adding nutrients, it is good to first measure your base water to determine its EC value. (You should compare the ambient EC-value of your various water sources to determine which source is best for your hydroponics setup.) Compare: tap-water, reverse-osmosis water, and your rainwater to see which is best for your setup. Also know that rainwater can change its characteristics from various atmospheric factors, acid rain or dust or pollution, etc. Now getting to your specific question: Years ago, I had recommended to pH the water before adding the nutrients, but I have changed my opinion on that now. Adding the nutrients also changes the pH again, and sometimes that would cause me to have to reverse the pH direction again. Adding any pH adjustment (up or down) causes additional (sometimes undesireable) rises in EC. Also, the mixing of a pH-up with a pH-down results in the production of undesired salts. So now my recommendation is to add the nutrients first, stir it and let it sit for a few minutes, then measure and adjust the pH, hopefully only once. Hope that was understandable.

  11. Sal, great job. Your results are proof that the drying-out between feedings is important. The roots need that oxygen from time to time.
  12. Good job Crentz. You are reading your plants well.
  13. pH rise in the reservoir is normal, just gotta keep adjusting back down every day or so. pH swing can be beneficial because some nutrients are better absorbed by the roots at various other pH values. Using Powderfeeding will usually reduce the wild pH swings, and allows a more stable pH. Using the right pH-adjustment solutions will also aid to stabilize pH. A stable set is from Advanced Hydroponics. They offer a pH-UP, and they offer two pH-Downs (one is Nitric-Acid-base, for use during Vegg, and the other is Phosphoric-Acid-base, for use during flowering.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
