    Default UK-MRS 1st Coco grow MENTOR-Blue.

    Will be up and running by the end of the week so getting a head start on this diary. Had fair to middling results and some disasters with soil but Blue very kindly is mentoring my 1st coco grow.

    Set up is-

    Trojan TG12 Gold 1.2x1.2x2m tent.

    Plant!t PH pen.

    TT-102 test wand.

    Canna Coco.

    Canna Coco A+B

    15L airpots.

    Black orchid mixed flo 6" extraction fan.

    Vegging with 900w Mars Led

    Flowering with 600w HPS.

    2x 6" clip on fans.

    Yet to by PH adjusters, drip trays and pot stands.

    You'll notice there is no mention of a filter. The plan is to run ducting from the tent in my bedroom, up through the ceeling into the attic where it will meet the extraction fan (less noisy that way) then ducting coming out of the fan and hack into the the stench pipe in the attic. I can't see any reason why it wouldn't work just fine. (Shhhhh don't tell blue or he'll tell me off not using a filter). Can always purchace one if needs be.

    I've ordered x5 Dinachem seeds (Dinafems own Chemdawg)

    Lets get this coco show on the road!

    I suppose I better take a seat

    I must have read the above wrong . I’m sure it said no filter

    As soon as there’s a slight whiff in veg a filter needs to be put in even if it’s a £20 job off the bay. Anything is better than nothing. I know your plants never smell but trust me Mrs, done properly there going to stink

    Am definately expecting a stink this time around. Will absolutely buy if/when needed don't worry.

    The logic is though that once the ducting is installed into the stench pipe and sealed so that nothing can escape then if we've never smelt sewage in the attic then we won't smell the plants either. When the loo is flushed it forces air up the pipe and straight out of the chimney taking the smell with it. I'll pop one of those industrial air freshner cakes in the ducting too as an extra precaution 😊 Our maisonette is the tallest building in the area too so unless warm air sinks? It should work.

    Oh yeah forgot to ask, you sent me a link for the ph stuff but it gave me several options, whats the name of the one I need? Cheers Blue 😊

    Evening Mrs. The ph additives you need are 250ml of ph down and 250ml of ph buffer 7. Any other questions ask away

    Regards the filter it’s a must, I’m glad to hear you’ll buy one. The air needs to be cleaned before exiting your tent otherwise we run the risk of the big red key taking your door off it’s hinges at 5am and your entire place turned upside down all for the sake of saving a few quid

    Also what about bio silicon or is that just soil? No mention of coco on the plant magic bio silicon bottle or is there a coco version?

    Apologies for the newbie questions lol.

    Rhino pro filters are your best bet. But if your looking for budget type in 6” carbon filter on the bay and take your pick

    I think you can use it with coco although it is designed for soil. Don’t buy any as it’s not a must. We can get by without it and keep things simple for you

    Okie doke, will put the rhino filter on my shopping list for a couple of weeks time and forget the bio silicon for now then. You can chill for a few days now 😂, should be set up by the weekend.

    Got lots of clean mini, small, medium plastic pots to get started in will they be o.k or? Will give you a shout when my seeds are germinated (paper towel method) and ready to go in the coco. 😊

    Hi Mrs.

    Is this a bigger grow for you with a tent? Thought you grew in a wardrobe/small space grow?

    Sort of Ben, my 1st groom was a tiny cupboard on my landing, currently finishing a grow in the attic in a self built groom that's bigger than the tent but not as tall. Can't carry on in the attic it's just too dam hot up there plus I'm due for some nasty surgery.

    Been at it since about 6pm, reorganizing the bedroom and setting the tent and fan up etc. I'm half crippled and not had me dinner yet!!!

    Gonna finish off my autos in it (a week tops) and going away for the weekend on Friday so it'll be early next week to pop the beans Blue.

    P.s Dam this tent is hooooooooge! I could camp in it mun! I pictured it smaller, dunno why. Plenty of head room for the MONSTERS we're gonna grow 😜

    Beans have arrived, realised I forgot to order the PH down n 7!! Not to worry will do it tomorrow and it'll be here Monday ready to go.

    Thanks will do, a weekend sea fishing before I have to give it up for 18 months, I wont be able to cast until the metal work being put in my neck fuses to the bones. Gutted but has to be done unless I want to end up in a wheelchair wearing a nappy!

    So happy the tent is all set up. Found a couple of tiny pin prick light leaks in it but nothing a little square of electrical tape won't fix.

    It's got great negative air pressure, the tent sides are sucked in nicely. The sound of the air movement is a little noisy but the filter will improve that hopefully.

    I put my 4 auto's in there to finish but I MAY be chopping the 3 tomorrow as after the weekend my step kids are coming to stay so it'll be difficult to do during the week. I wanted plenty of ambers but it's just not happening. The rest of the trics are all swollen and cloudy though and ripe for the plucking.

    Temps in the tent are 27oC with 41 humidity. We'll see what happens when the warm weather kicks in again.

    Super excited to get started!!!

    Lovely Jubbly Mrs, sounds like your weekend will be a good one. Fingers crossed on the surgery I’m sure all will be ok

    So the seeds have arrived and we have plenty of negative pressure in the tent, we’re off to a good start already
