  1. Hi g22 I think the seedling on the right in the bottom image will be fine it is just maturing and greening up quick before you have planted it. I will cross my fingers anyway just in case, happy growing...
  2. Its time for another update on the progress of the 4 Sweet Mango autos. I watered and fed all 4 plants last Friday instead of Saturday because the dirt was nice and dry, so I gave the 2 larger plants 400ml of water and feed and I gave the 2 smaller plants 300ml of water and feed. At the moment I am alternating feeding and watering, at the moment when I feed them I mix 2ml of root stimulant and 2ml of grow nutrient, with 1gram of the organic magnesium crystals which I only started adding the last couple of feeds. The organic magnesium is great for avoiding deficiencies, I will keep adding it to the feed this week which is now their last week in veg, on the 1st of April I will flip the bloom switch on the lamp and reset the timer to 12/12, I will give the plants a flush to remove any grow feed or salt in the dirt, but I wont add the magnesium crystals for the first two weeks of flowering as per the advice in the feed schedule. But if I do see any sign of deficiency I will immediately add 1gram per litre to the feed mix and it will sort it out, it really is a great product I am well glad I bought it, the plants stay a lot greener and don't look as scruffy by harvest after the last two weeks of just water, mind you a few yellow leaves help to provide a nice contrast with the green bud. Yesterday evening (Sunday) the dirt was nice and dry again so I gave them all a drink of water the 2 larger plants have almost conquered the dirt in the pouches, the dirt becomes more solid and stable, but towards the edge of the pouch it is still a bit fluffy, once the roots penetrate the dirt at the edges it will become solid like the rest, the 2 smaller plants are about half way to conquering the pouches. I gave the two larger plants 500ml of water and I gave the 2 smaller plants 400ml of water each, this afternoon the dirt is starting to look dry so I should be able to give them a drink and feed again tomorrow evening. Here are some images I took last night just before I watered. Sweet Mango under LED in tent. Tallest Sweet Mango plant stalks. Top of tallest Sweet Mango plant. A young flower on the Sweet Mango that is in flower. In the image of the tallest plants stalks in the top left you can see the new nodes are not symetrical any more, this is because I FIM'd the plant, this also applies to the 2 smaller plants as well, the other tall plant just flowered in response to being FIM'd. The main thing is that they will share their love with the all the stalks from top to bottom now the apical tendency is broken its all good. The plant that shot into flower looks symetrical so I am not sure if its apical tendency is broken, it will provide an interesting comparison as they all grow going forwards. I will take some better photos to show the asymetry in better detail and upload them in a couple of days, happy growing... Gasmeter Likkle more
  3. Hi R.G.S thanks for the kind words and encouragement, whatever happens I will be popping a couple of beans towards the end of April for outdoors and I will be in the mix with you guys in the competition. Your right it is a bit quiet at the start of this competition, usually there is lots of people and activity right from the start like with the White Rhino last year. But that said you and g22 are well busy and doing good so far and providing us with some inspiration as we wait to join in the party. Good luck and happy growing...
  4. @g22 thanks man The consultant is supposed to be an expert in these sorts of complications, once I see the consultant hopefully he will have a plan and he will give me a date for surgery, the tough part is waiting for the letter with the appointment to see the consultant to get the ball rolling. Time longer than rope, Natty endure, Natty prevail...
  5. Thanks for the kind words Nordic Grower I FIM'd the first auto I grew indoors in 2016, that was the first time I FIM'd a plant, it is definitely worth doing, breaking the plants apical tendency wihile its in veg will increase yeild she will share her luv with all the stalks so they become colas and the bud is similar size and growth rate to the main stalk at the top. That said though some autos have a hair trigger and FIMing them causes them to go off like a rocket and start flowering, After I FIM as the new nodes grow I can tell that I have broken the plants apical tendency, because the new nodes are not symetic anymore, one side is slightly higher than the other, whereas if you just leave the plant it will be very symetical and more Crismus tree like and the plant will focus its energy on the main cola. Outdoors I have enough room to run 2 photoperiod girls and FIM them and let them do their thing the 2 Passion #1 last year produced 6oz dry the weather was really kind and I was done by the end of August. Thanks Ganja XL yeah the plants love these root pouches. I am looking forwards to seeing what the yeild is like on this run with a new LED lamp, on the last run they started out under a broken LED lamp.
  6. Hey g22 Whatever ShaggyGrower does I bet it will be epic after watching his grow in last years competition he is a very competent grower. Yep I entered this years contest, I will be growing the Sweet Valley Kush, I am going to do 4 in my tent once these Sweet Mango autos are done. And I am going to do an outdoor run with 2 Sweet Valley Kush which I will FIM, but wit the indoor I realised that if I don't FIM and I let them keep their apical tendency they will fit inside my tent, hopefully I can do a couple of runs in the tent by October, not sure about 2 runs outside though. At the moment I am waiting for a hospital appointment to see a consultant in the next couple of weeks I have a titanium plate in my leg thats snapped so I need surgery as soon as possible, then I can focus on the competition whle everything heals up, which will be a welcome distraction.
  7. Time for a quick mid week update. I watered all 4 of the Sweet Mango autos last night, it was three days since I fed and watered them last. I watered all 4 of the Sweet Mango autos last night, it was three days since I fed and watered them last. I gave he two smaller plants 300ml of water each and the larger plants 400ml of water each, I will water and feed them in 3 days when the dirt has dried out again. I also FIM'd 3 of them again, 1 of them has started to flower after I FIM'd her with the others for the first time last week. They only have another week to go to the end of the month then I will flip the timer to 12/12 and switch on the bloom switch on the lamp so they get full spectrum to get the other 3 flowering. Here are some images from last night. Sweet Mango under LED in tent. Top of Sweet Mango auto in flower, looks like this one had a hair trigger. Sweet Mango FIM site. More updates at the weekend, happy growing... Gasmeter Likkle more
  8. Good question g22 I will be booking a seat for sure
  9. Hi kareng123 your welcome thats what the forum is about sharing information and helping each other to grow collie Checkout the outdoor journals to see what people can achieve in different condition my last outdoor journal was 2017 some Passion #1 from Dutch Passion its a great strain for our climate it finishes in 6 weeks and they do an auto version. It is also worth checking out the indoor journals too, you can learn a lot from them, and if you have questions someone will answer and offer advice. Gasmeter Likkle more
  10. Hey Nordic Grower, Glad you got your nutes, super stealthy ninja shipping...
  11. Hey kareng123, Yes your way too early to be poppin beans for outdoors here in the UK, unless you have an indoor garden where you could veg them until mid May. Wit all Greenhouse strains the lowest temp is 10C they just stop all activity below this temperature, indoor I aim for a range between 17C and 28C anything over 30C is tropical, obviously outdoors we have no control of the temperature other than prividing shade and runnig a fan or fans. The important thing is to start in time for the plants to finish, the season here is May to October that gives you 6 months to do your thing. I will be poppin some beans for outdoors at the start of May for the Mega Comp they will be vegged for 1 month or 4 weeks, then I will trick them into flowering which means I need to make it dark for them to control the photoperiod, I do this by putting them in the shed in the yard so they get 14 i/2 hours light per day. The flowering time is 8 to 9 weeks, so depending on the weather it may take 10 or 11 weeks for the bud to ripen properly, its all down to conditions, I have read this season will be similar to last year which was great I was done by the end of August and smoking the bud by mid September. When you pop your beans put them under some sort of light, the more intense the better, at this point it only needs to be at the blue end of the spectrum to help them get started, then after a couple of weeks once they get stronger put them outside for half a day for a couple of days to acclimatize them to the sun, you will see the plant respond and know if it is ready to be outside. With the auto flowering strain it should flower once it reaches about 30 to 35 days old, although I have kept an auto flower in veg for 2 months, but that was by providing the right conditions, outside in your back yard it will be getting full spectrum light from the sun so it will just do what is required you wont need to trick it into flowering by putting something over the plant or placing it in a shed to control the amount of light it receives. With the LED 15W just two won't provide much light a few more would not go amiss, people use those 125W CFL's to get plants started and veg plants, so they were not a waste of money, just add a couple more, their light output is probably like a 20 or 30W normal bulb. Hope this helps, happy growing...
  12. Time to update the grow journal with a bit of news about progress. The 4 Sweet Mango autos are doing great and growing nicely and since I FIMed them last Wednesday they have just carried on regardless. Last night I gave them all a drink of water, the 2 larger ones got about 200ml each and the smaller 2 got about 100ml each, by Monday night the dirt will be nice and dry and they will be ready for a drink and their next feed. Here are some images from last night. Sweet Mango under LED in tent. Structure of the largest Sweet Mango. Top growth on largest Sweet Mango. More updates to follow, happy growing...

  13. Hi Nordic Grower Hopefully they are coming separately, double stealth shipping
  14. The 4 young Sweet Mango plants are all growing nicely and enjoying the new LED lamp the nodes are noce and tight. They are all around 4 or 5 nodes now so last night I decided it was time to FIM them all to break their apical tendency. Sweet Mango under LED in tent. Sweet Mango plant FIM site. The two slightly smaller plants are now being watered every 2 days now at the same time as the other 2 plants. Tonight I will give the smaller 2 plants their first feed and for the other 2 plants it will be their second feed. I love these root pouches the root system is a lot healthier and the dirt dries out nicely too, I am also loving the Old Timer range of nutrients this will be my second run using the full range of organic nutrients and additives, the PK boost is great 3 days after the first feed using it the buds were visibly fatter. I am looking forwards to testing the GHS powder feed with the Sweet Valley Kush both inside and outside. Gasmeter Likkle more
  15. Hi Ganja XL Thanks for the kind words man. Yeah the root pouches are awsome well worth trying the plants will love them and your dirt will dry out nicely making watering and feeding easier.
