This was my first entry as a newbie:
"I joined the forum last week, prompted by the competition that Greenhouse seeds are running. I've been a Strain Hunter fan for ages and love the energy Greenhouse Seeds put in to all their products.
I'm an English lady living in France, renewing my passion in growing cannabis. When I lived in the UK I was a greenhouse and gurilla grower, indulging my passion for sativa strains such as thai weed. I'm not a big smoker but I have a flavour for the exceptional and strange varieties. When I lived in the UK it was never a problem having excess product because I had a friend that always helped take what was left off my hands, but as I don't know anyone in France most of my crop goes to waste. There is only so much butter and cake you can make and put in the freezer for a later date!
I'm starting to grow indoors, trying to use my experience of organic growing and implimenting it in my indoor garden. I currently have a 1m x 1m20 grow cupboard with a 600 watt cool tube. I also have a small cloning area where I use a 100 watt fluorescent light and hoping to expand next year to another 600 watt area and a mother plant room. As you know it all takes time and money!
I am currently growing Super Lemon Haze, AMS and Barny's Farm Acapulco Gold - they are 3 weeks old in these photos. They are under 24 hours of 100 watts because electricity costs are so high over here at the moment. They only get 4 hours a day at 600 watts (I know its not clever). The next batch of photos I'll put up are of the same plants at 5 weeks, just before taking clones and flip them for flowering."
I'm trying to set up a blog - this one is a bit patchy with photographs and timing but the next blog I do will be solely from start to finish with clones I have of Super Lemon Haze.
Five days after these photos were taken I flipped them to 12/12 ready for flowering. I was unprepared on how much the SLH and the Barney's Farm were going to stretch. I am learning some very valuable lessons on how long I should veg each variety of plant due to the amount they are stretching! The next lot of photos were taken at week 3 into week 4 of flowering - you will see how much they have stretched. I also think that my grow cabinet is seriously inadequate and I am open to any suggestions or help into setting up a new cabinet/room for two 600-watt cool tubes.
