Hi, I'm grumpygrower! I'm a newb to the growing scene and have just started my first grow. I've uploaded some images for some feedback. I'll provide some information below as bullet points.

* Strains:
- Dutch Passion Glueberry OG
- Unknown MasterKush
- Dutch Passion PowerPlant

Tent:
- Size: 1m2

Lighting:
- 150W CFL
- 400w Lumatek digital with Osram plantastar bulb.
- Adjust-A-Wing medium

Media:
- Plagron BatMix/COCO 50/50
- 4x 18 ltr pots

Nutrients:
- Plagron Alga range
- Biosys instant microbial tea
- Green sensation
- Rain water/RO Water + Canna CaMg

Bug Preventative:
- S&B Plant invigorator sprayed once every two weeks.

I'm thinking of giving LED's a run next time? I've had my eye on one of those new Lumatek 600w LED. Word on the street is they will be out for purchase around October time. :clap:

Welcome along bud

That's not really much light for 3x3m if I'm reading the area correctly. Anywhere from 400-1000w per square meter is kinda possible depending on ambient temps and air flow

Also are you hoping to run these as a soil grow or as a coco grow? I ask as I'm not familiar with the nutrient range, but I'll take a little looksy later on

I keep getting banned and I can't edit the replies. Probably because I'm a new user and posting a lot of images. Hopefully an admin can unblock me at some point and I'll merge all this at the top :D

At first it wouldn't let me edit, then I got IP banned. I'm behind a VPN and TOR so maybe the exit node's IP was banned? It's OK I just kicked the TOR router and I'm back.

It may well be, I'll have a look shortly.

I wouldn't worry too much about it as it will be highly unlikely I'll use the same exit node for a while and there's an easy workaround. If I could have permissions to edit the locked posts, I can merge all the images to the top.

Anyway, back to the grow. They got a little hungry towards the end of the growth period as it's the first time I've grown and I didn't know when to start feeding. I tried to push for 6 weeks with just rain water but got caught short as there's quite a bit of coco in the mix. I think the Iron in the plant invigorator and Biosys helped me through those stages though. As you can see, they've greened up and flowered nicely so far. They smell awesome! Power plant has a deep skunk smell and a hint of coffee and the Glueberry has hints of citrus, berry and a skunky undertone. The Master Kush isn't as pungent and smells a bit earthy like a kush would.

We've also had some pretty hot days here +33C outdoors so there was a little flossing. There was nothing I could do about it except turn the light down to 250w and hope for the best. The Glueberry handled the heat like a champ bot the powerplant and kush choked a little. I'll keep you updated. Hope you enjoyed all the photos lol

The GlueBerry OG are at the back, the powerplant is front-right and the kush is front-left.

Hey GMO, Sorry 3m2 was a typo :D You'd need about 3500w to cover that! this is all organic. That's why I'm using rain water / RO water so not to kill off the bacteria I'm adding. Saying that, I'd probably use RO what ever the media if I'm honest. From what I've read, municipal water is full of horrible stuff. In our area, the tap water is full of Calcium and low on Magnesium. It's full of salt, all you have to do is leave a plate of water to evaporate and you can see the scum left behind. Reverse osmosis machines are cheap now. I picked a four stage unit up for $50 new. The water pressure ain't quite up to the job and it takes about 5 hours to get 20 liters so I'm going to have to get a pump at some point.

Awesome, thanks for sorting that for me @Keeno! And thank for the compliment! I've been reading up a little before starting some beans and it's really paid off. I'm loving the organics as well. I've read about hydroponics giving more yield and being more efficient at a lot of things but it always seems like a bit of a headache. Maybe I'll give it a go some day. I have some DP Lemon Zkittle beans sitting in the fridge but I'm going to hold back on them because these phenotypes look awesome! I'll post some more once it's all finished. Thank you all for the warm welcome once again! I'll look forward to reading some of the others diaries and expanding my knowledge. Peace!

Its all down to preference tbh. While hydro seems a head ache its actually a easier way to grow in a lot of ways. Issues are easier to fix and a lot faster. That being said and ive said it many time, a good consistent soil/organic grower is the best at what we do. More kit and a little more work in hydro but easier on the actual growing front. If this was your first im very excited to see your next.
