Hi Mis D and welcome to forum, 

 

If you accept a tip, you have more things to try, super lemon, Hawaiian snow, Franco lemon cheese ... there are many delicious strains in GH

Regards!

Hi jose, thanks for the reply,  i split with my boyfriend and need to grow some weed,

 

at the moment i am trying to source equipment to get  a little grow on,


carbon filter
fans matched to lighting requirments and carbon scrubber
pots meduim sized 
some liner to line the tent any ideas?
Timer controller
nutes (fertilizers)chem or organic

soil or coco? which is best

seeds or cuttings?

 

am not experience but as a women, i used to smoke kali mist, so Hawaiian snow, sound really cool.  hopefully the member here will be able to guide me through this time

Hi Mis D, 

 

Actually if you have little experience, the simplest thing is to grow outdoors, in a pot with organic earth :)

Indoors it is a bit more complex, especially good sativa varieties (how kali, Hawaiian) because they are long flowering.

However, you need a closet, focus and I recommend using organic soil. The coconut is better (in my opinion), but it is also much more complex.

Yes, many people have tried Franco's lemon Cheese, you can see works here:

Hi jose.gh

 

I am totally new to this,  This will be by first grow ever.  I was given a list of books to buy and read.  They are arriving today.  I still have not made up my mind as to what style of growing i am going to use, or what lighting.  So there are many things that i need to do.  My X boyfriend,  i am able to ask for some tips and help.

 

I spoke to my X boyfriend, and he said he will get me some cuttings, he read a list out, of the selection of cutting available and and there are some green house strains on the list, so looks like, i get to try your Famous strains.

 

Thank you so much for popping and saying hello.

Heyo,
Welcome to the forum!

What size of your grow tent do you intend to grow in?
This is important both for light size, ventilation system etc..

If you decide to buy a small grow tent like i did, which is a 2'x2'x5'7" (60x60x170cm)..
Ventilation: a couple of these (or anything in the range of 110m3/180m3) should fit https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B00X9KW7FE/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_19?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=AEGT8THQU3RRN
Carbon filters: I bought a couple of these (one as intake, one as outtake) https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B00MNJ4TO4/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_20?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A11IL2PNWYJU7H
Grow Tent: this is what i'm currently using https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B005ZQX4U2/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_18?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3DCK9X2I9P3B8
Nutes: this is pretty much your choice. I think most on the forum would agree to go bio/organic, i'd recommend you organic if you can, bio if you can't, and never use chemicals. Me, @g22, @OG.Naj, @evolution666 and some other fellas on the forum are currently testing the GHSC White Rhino, along with their new BioFeeding powders (time-release). I'd recommend you checking them out.
Timer: I absolutely don't recommend you to buy anything digital on amazon. Buy mechanicals, or if you're a bit more a handyman -ahem, handygirl in this case- and have some more time on your hands, buy an industrial timer, with 2+ channels, for automated machinery. They cost 50-60 euros (using one right now, but can't provide you the link atm), and never lose one millisecond.

Soil or coco?
I've always grown in soil, although i'm absolutely no expert and always learning something (like the recent issues i had).
To me, soil is a good medium, has a lot of potential, but also a lot of challenges. Some growers prefer soil taste, some prefer coco taste, some others hydro or aero taste.
I... Like good weed heheh
It's something, again, up to you. If you feel like spending something less for your first grow, and feel less confident, go soil. If you instead feel ballsy enough to try something else, do it. It might end up you're better at something else than growing in soil, and for some job positions it's something more ;)

Strain recommendation?
So far, none. Not because i don't like one, but because i'm pretty new on the forum too. 
I rarely find weed on the streets, figures "named". Imo, growing is a money-saving, scientific passion. There's always something new to learn, both from direct experience and from other's. 
So.. my recommendation is to pick up the forum's shop, scroll between the pages, pick a name, make an order, give it a try.. And then try another one!

Lighting system:
This is a harder topic to discuss. 
It mainly depends on your needs, possibilities.. 

Currently, i'm growing with a combo of these lights:
4x 6500K 35W https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B01MTOS6H3/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_24?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A2MGDQH5VQSMR
4x Blurple 45W (Don't fall in the trap like i did, it's not Full Spectrum at all :D) https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B072L25VTD/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_23?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ADOVXU49YLK5Q
As far as i understand and experienced, my setup burns colas at 32cm, runs perfectly at 45cm, keeping a room temp at maximum 29°.

But i absolutely don't recommend you buying my setup.
I'm considering an upgrade to a COB lamp.
Cobs have a much fuller spectrum, less power draw, much more efficiency.
I'm currently closely watching this beauty: https://www.ledgrowshop.eu/cf-grow/cxb3590-x2-led-grow-light-2/
But i'm also currently watching this other beast: https://www.ledgrowshop.eu/optic-led/optic-2-cob-led-grow-light-205w--uv-ir--3000k-5000k-cobs/

Some other growers will recommend you HPS systems, some will recommend CFLs, some others have succesfully grown with Neons, and even led strips. 
It all depends on your needs, and what you feel would work best for your enviroment. 
Keep in mind that HPS are way hotter than LEDs, but HPS have a better spectrum for flowering over thousands of led lamps.

Little spectrum comparison.

A 600W HPS spectrum:

A COB Spectrum:

About PAR, what you gotta keep in mind is that above 1000, plants are going to require additional Co2.
Without it, they're either going to burn, or your harvest diminished.

This said.. 
There's so much research i need to do, and if possible, i'll share some of it if asked.
Sorry if this post is quite the papyrus :)

Peace!

Hi @LedCherryBerry,

 

First congrats to your work... your plants looks great and I'm sure your harvest will be amazing... :-)

Pretty cool also the way you help @Mis D with all these infos in your answer... that's the good spirit, so respect about that...

For me, I think if it's the first time you grow weed by yourself, choose something easy (like autoflow or short time flowering seeds)...

And I confirm the new GHSC Bio feeding range work great... first time I use all in one nutriments and Impressed by the quality...  so @Mis Ddont hesitate to try GHSC Feeding !

Have a great day ! Cheers & salute.

@evolution666 Thank you man, same about yours. Some of your colas are so thick i can smell them from here.. ;)
Mine, though, is just one plant. I don't have the space necessary to grow 4, unfortunately.. Yet!

I agree with you about strain recommendation. 
Maybe a Lowryder (or any other strain mixed with that genetic) should be fitting perfectly:
Grows small, delivers a good quantity of THC, harvest in 10 weeks, automatic (https://www.zamnesia.com/vision-seeds/280-lowryder-autoflowering.html).
It's not the best yielder, but it's a fair step forward in this messy business heheheh

Same for me, first time user with time-released, all-in-1 nutes. Gotta say i'm pretty amazed.
I've been a fanatic of BioBizz products, but after trying their nutes i doubt i'll go back to liquids.

Peace!

EDIT: number of weeks changed, i've mistaken another strain with this one (from 7 to 10).

They forget to mention two very elegant options:

Autobomb: His name already tells you what you're going to reap, you beast.

Sweet Mango Auto: Sweet and fruity, delicious with a more sativa effect.

Both genetics are autoflowering, simple for outdoor crops in good weather.

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.
