    Post Tips and tricks before I set off

    Hi this is my first post and my 2nd grow upgraded to a 1.2m x2.4m x2m with 2 600w dual spectrum, 6inch inline fan (800m3/h) with speed controller and carbon filter 16 inch oscillating fan using bio bizz lite soil, 4 inch fresh air intake haven't chosen what nutrients and am geting some cuttings from a family member, how many should I be doing I was thinking 8 would be the max for the tent so am tempted to do 6 as I'm intrested in quality over quantity any tips would be appreciated before they go in so I'm prepared! Will keep the thread updated along the way


    Cheers everyone!

    Try not to keep it too crowded cuz it will be hard for the mid to lower of the plant to get any light resulting in smaller buds and airy buds you need about a square meter in space for each.

    Pretty much mate, it's this;

    If you don't have time, to feed the plants every day, and can't afford a good ph and ec meter, grow in soil.

    But, if you can feed everyday, and can get good meteres, coco is the only way to grow IMO!! There is good drainage, the roots can breath much easier, very hard to over water them, any salt build up or nuitierenr problems can be flushed out and restored within an hour of seeing a defieciency. Also, plants in coco, will grow faster, so less crop time in veg, and bigger flowers.

    Coco all day long for me, but always remember, it's more about your personal situation, what ever medium you choose, the weed will grow, you just gotta look after it

    I roll with "canna professional" but there are many options out there. Have a look around and see what suits you.

    Yer man I'd be happy to do that mate, but the bosses have to give is the go ahead on it. When you're ready, get your diary written up for your grow, and get it up in the montor request section of the site, that way, if I can't do it, someone else can jump in

    Lol! Nah mate, no debate to be had really, if you want the best of the best weed, proper soil is the way to go. But for the ease of things, and the ability to correct medium issues quickly, coco is the way to go.

    All depends on your situation man. You smash the raised bed shit man, I don't think I'm capable of such skills lol. Coco is just a nice easy way to grow weed indoors.

    100% agree! It's more Yeild for me, it's takes longer to get a decent Yeild from organic than it does coco, but the weed is a next level quality.

    When I've got enough weed to sit on, four a few months, then I can get an organic grow on. But for now, te speed and ease of coco sells it for me, but one day, I hope I can make that upgrade to organic living soil

    Going to go soil on this one seeing as it's all been bought and awaiting some cuttings today, also am I dreaming or is there a fan which is linked to a temp/humid sensor so it turns on when it's too hot saving it being on constantly?
