    Indoor Hello again, and thanks for all the fish.

    Let's start at the end. About three years ago I stopped growing weed altogether. I had the idea right after reading some news about new legislation in my country, now some of you may have had an inkling already but now I can officially come out of the closet: I am.. german. I know, it shocked me...

    Photoperiod Grand Daddy Purple - Bulk Seeds, ordered from Linda Seeds

    I’ll ordered some photoperiod Grand Daddy Purple - Bulk seeds, from Linda Seeds. I just had to give the GDP a go because of the name and the reputation the strain have/had world-wide, but especially in America. With the order I got 7 freebies from Seedstockers and Royal Queen Seeds. The...

    Crap. I've used 3 brands of the pressed & dried coco coir. I know you'll always have some remnants of production, but this was just shoddy product. The "100% coconut coir fibers" was a gross mis-advertisement, really a blatant lie. - Filled with Sand - Numerous ( stopped counting at 12) big...

    Time for a new batch. I started soaking the seeds on Christmas, most are 14 days from sprout. It's pretty much the same setup as last time -- I'm growing in a 2x2' / 60x60 cm tent, in reused 1/2 liter polypropylene food containers (ice cream pints) full of coco and hydroton, bottom-feeding with...

    Grow Mediums Using an Autopot aquavalve for a tray of small containers of coco (SOG)?

    Do any of you have experience with using an autopot aquavalve to bottom-feed a tray of smaller containers? I want to set up automated watering, and using an aquavalve seems like a good fit because I've been bottom-feeding small containers for several grows, just watering by hand. I like that...

    Grow Mediums Coco growers! How do you all dilute your nute mix?

    Hey everyone! Just switched to coco and wanting to know how everyone preps their nutes. My biggest question is appropriately mixing in the dilution while still having the correct ratio of calmag. I’m using rainwater and diluting with RO water. I’m also using FF calmag, and GH floranova...

    Indoor Sticky Tries Coco
    Threadmarks: Coco grow

    Hey Everyone! This will be my attempt at growing in coco. I’ve grown in organic (FF HF, FF OF), and imo they’ve just been subpar grows. I struggled with overwatering, gnats, and not knowing how to properly mix nutes. Nevertheless, I stuck it out and grew some pretty decent smoke :jointman: So...

    Grow Mediums What nutes do you hand watering coco growers use?

    Just trying to do my due diligence on different nute lines. All my prior grows were on organic FF soil and i was using their nute line too. Was debating on continuing to use when i went coco but i think it’d be better to just get a coco specific nute line. What do yall use?

    Like my previous journal, I'm growing in a 2x2x5'5" / 60x60x165 cm tent (Secret Jardin DR60) with two 60W 3500K autoCOBs. My lights are 20/4 this time, it's no longer winter. Instead of solo cups, I'm using translucent plastic ice cream pint containers I've drilled several 3/8" holes through...

    Soil vs Coco medium for a First Timer?

    Hey relatively new grower here, I'll be setting up a 2x4 (80cm x 80cm x 180cm) Tent with ViparSpectra P2000 200W lights. I'm thinking of going with an auto flowering strain but I'm still unsure about that. My question is which would be a better medium for a beginner soil or coco? Could I grow 2...

    Grow Mediums After two grows using FF, wanting to switch to Roots Organic. How do you like them?
    Threadmarks: Roots Organic

    Hey AFN! I started growing with Fox Farm Ocean Forest, and Happy Frog. My only two grows have been with Fox Farm. I'm looking to change soils and since my local hydro store consistently carries them it seems like a sound change. From my understanding Roots Organic is a coco-coir soil base, so...
