    Default Thanks for having me...

    Hi all,
    Pleased to be here, first time grower, long time toker. I guess like many people I've recently found myself unemployed and weedless, so it's finally time to get some value out of my attic.

    I live in Dublin Ireland, which is cold in general but also really humid especially this time of year, and my attic gets pretty toasty since the roof is completely lined with foam insulation except for a single vent, so I'm almost certainly going to have heat and humidity issues, along with all the other surprises that are no doubt waiting round the corner, so yeah I figured I need to get some experienced help, which brought me here to you fine people!

    I'm a stage lighting designer by trade so I know a decent amount about lighting, electronics and atmospherics, but this will be the first thing I've grown since that pot of cress in playschool 35 years ago. And since there won't be much paid work lighting gigs for the foreseeable future, this will be very much a budget grow. I've bought a tent, a light, an extraction system and seeds, which are all taking way longer than normal to arrive (for obvious reasons), but should be here in a few days.

    So yeah I'll post more when I have more to say (and show), seems like a cool bunch of folks here, looking forward to making acquaintances and learning new things, and maybe even helping some of you guys out, most likely by showing you how not to do things!

    Peace
    Chiefo

    Plenty of time to tend to things, no money to spend dealing with things, it'll be interesting anyway! The plan is to have 4 nice stocky Northern Light autos done by August, as long as I don't drown or poison the poor beggars

    I have thought about outdoors but I'm very skeptical, I have a small L-shaped garden but the walls are really high (not a great neighborhood) and maybe get around 4 or 5 hours direct sunlight a day. Also neighbors can see it from their bedrooms. Oh and I forgot it's also a cat toilet! That's probably the most limiting factor! Might just plant one seed and see what happens, ya never know!

    Cattapiss!

    Bloody cats!

    Why do cat owners think it's fine for their pets to piss & shit in other peoples gardens?

    No it's our cat, there's a flap out to the garden but none to actually leave the premises, bloody landlords more like...
