    Harvest Time

    Welcome to my nightmare

    Its not as bad as I originally thought! I harvested last night getting a batch of good bud (on the black tray) and then a batch of bud that had the infected parts trimmed off(white tray).Don't know if the rot will take over during drying?I've them drying out in the attic I suppose time will tell?

    take all the stuff with rot and turn it in to hash. keep it away from the good stuff so that the spores (?) dont go near it and ruin it, also what strain ,looks nice.

    I've done that tontozboy the good stuff is in the attic and the other dirt is in a press.They were White widow.Dryed some out in the microwave its harsh but a nice heady high.

    Totally disgusted at being forced into an early harvest.Will weigh when fully dried.Probably gonna give it a go again next year pick up on what I've learned and strive to do better maybe invest in a glass house!

    Go to your local grow shop and ask for some pesticide.

    iv used miracle grow patio for vegatating and that bloom stuff you can buy in capel st for flowering used ruderalis indica and sensi skunk got ten seeds in each packet and have got atleast 5 females from each packet nice smoke too. think the shop is called NIRVANA they have the best strains the sensi strains are by far the best to grow with natural light in ireland ul need at some point tho u can also buy them in nirvana or a shop across the road and up a lane sells all the lights and nutrients for plants cloning gel etc.

    drying in the microwave is by far the the worst way to dry canabis as it doesnt realy dry it just cooks the goodness out of it the slower u dry the better the weed dont waste your stuff aftergrowing for 3 or 4 months to just ruin it in a microwave,hang it in a wardrobe or put in a paper bag and open every few hours

    outdoor update 2

    Hi guys,
    ok these pics were taken a few days ago.
    All are auto flowering, a few different strains. (dutch passion, lowryder 1 + 2)All are budding, some more than others, apart from the tallest sativa looking strains which are only starting now. I am unsure what the sativa strains are as I didnt label each pot when planting. its really only an experiment to see if I can grow outside.
    auto flowering seeds seem ok, though if you are growing in the climate i am, be prepared to wait a lot longer for the finished product. Im happy with my grow so far, as it hasnt cost me much, apart from seeds, nutrients, and the el cheapo tent they are in.
    Problems I have had along the way
    1. shitty soil(transplanted to nice soil mix wth perlite) really helped growth
    2. bad location for first 3 weeks(wasnt getting enough light) positioned in a more open spot
    3. fucking bugs, got some insect and bug killer, solvved the problem
    4. crappy irish summer barely saw any decent sunshine, so Im very happy so far, though lets see the yield in around 3 weeks, theres 16, so I figure if I get on average 4 grams per plant, its around 50 grams in total. il be happy

    Anyway, all in all, pleased so far, hit me with any comments or queries
    :Rasta:
    ps check out the third pic, this little girl is the smallest plant I have EVER seen, she is only around 9 inches tall, but real leafy and branchy, lots of bud sites, its hard to see in the pics, I tried to set it beside another for size difference, but with so much greenery in the background you have to look real close

    I am not an expert particularly on cannabis - but have a five foot plant and two smaller ones growing outside in a Belfast garden, from seeds from a bag of grass my son germinated in a lizard's tank!. I have being growing all kinds of plants, indoor and outdoor for years in this country. Which is why the plants were sent up to my garden. Don't complicate things, its just a plant like any other exotic plant, grow it outside as you would with tomatoes, chillies or any other Half-Hardy Annual flowering plant. Germinate seeds (preferably in a heated propogator indoors- but any small tray covered with cling-film and pierced will do -then put it on top of your tv set top box or other warm place.) in late Feb. Transplant to small pots in peat-based or John Innes compost when seeds have germinated and have their first true leaves, and put on a sunny windowsill. Do not plant outdoors until all risk of frost is passed, (end of May begining of June in Ireland). Transplant only when roots begin to fill the pot. Feed them in the same way you would any other flowering plant, you can buy organic fertilizers, Growmore or Miracle Grow in any supermarket. grow it among other plants outside , in the sunniest spot (south-facing) that you can find.

    PLANT LOTS OF OTHER FLOWERS AND SOME TOMATOS AND CHILLIES - your neighbours will think you are just a keen gardener - this will work even on a town balcony - so long as you have plenty of other plants around - they will be inconspicuous.

    Its just a plant. Like people who grow roses, giant vegetables or flowers it takes time to learn. You can buy the most expensive seeds and equiptment money can buy but its not called "weed" for no reason, a kid with a seed, a yoghurt carton and a bit of muck could manage it. If you want to become an expert then learn by experience. Its just a plant. Like people who grow roses, giant vegetables or flowers it takes time to learn.

    Hi,
    Im by no means an expert, though as Irish Granny says, experience is the best way to learn.
    And everything Irish Granny says is spot on. I think you would be an expert in no time!!!
    Only other thing I would say is if you can, keep them inside some polythene tent, and also put polythene down on the ground. it keeps bugs and pests at bay.
    Water a little, around once per week, and dont over fertilize.
    Im using basic b cuzz nutrients and some rhizotonic to help roots, as Irish Granny says, its a weed!!!!:Rasta:

    gald some1 dug this up

    i am trying out some new seeds for my out side grow called mixed berries
    and has survived the snow we had a while back so looking hardy any way.
    Grow some other types like early girl and hollands hoop/hope(depends on the seed supplier which name it is)
    and ya could do some lowryder types
    but go into any shop and ask for a short flowering period.
    longer this is the worse the weather gets at the end

    thats pretty cool that it survived snow, i read some where else though that early girl and hollands hoop aren't that great (will check again).

    if your looking for seeds you should look for a certain danish seeds company, some would say its mantra and website are very ZEN like for a SEEDS company. :thumbsup:

    hope this helps


    side question , how many posts do we need to send/receive private messages?
