  • Hey Mr pennywise I was just hoping for your opinion on what kind of led lighting that would be suitable for a tent with these dimensions 50cm(W)x90cm(L)x160cm(H) please. I’m having trouble trying to find any references to help/guide me.
    I was thinking of getting a Viparspectra LED Grow Light - R900 or maybe a Apollo 10 LED Grow Light - True Watt 360W | Full Spectrum but I’m not sure. Please any advice would be most appreciated. Please and thank you
    Oh yea because I’m in Australia so it’s not as easy as other places to find a wide variety of led lights without them costing a hell of a lot of money. My budget is about $500-$550 but any information on quality alternatives would be much appreciated, thank you.

    I'll hook you up with Smokesara from Mars Hydro, tell here the size of your tent or space and she can tell you what you need.
    Hey PW, we talked awhile back and you gave me some help with my last grow. Had a question or a few for you though.
    Have you done any Aero grows?
    Are you interested in doing one?
    and last but not least, would you have room for a 3' diameter grow chamber for a grow and if so what would be the tallest you think you could rock.

    The reason I ask is I am about to build the prototypes for my aeo unit and was thinking it would be cool to get feed back from a couple growers with some experience under their belt and thought of you.

    A 36" container is quite large. You effectively eliminate every home/small scale grower with that size requirement. Is there a reason you have gone so big?

    I’ve only run aero for clones. I run tents which are square not sure if round would be an advantage. Vertical space i would want to tallest space I could manage.

    this is what Im building this week, its 4 parts to make the base and 4 parts for the top which will be able to "spin" on the base so you can get to the pants in the back. The end concept it to have a tie out rack for scrog that mounts on the lid that would allow you to tie out the plants and still be able to spin them to get to all the plants.

    PW by height I was talking about from the floor to the top of the chamber for a tent grow that was rocking a scrog
    i have had a couple people tell me that im going to need to up pot again to a five gallon pot, and others say that the three gallon is ok. what do you think? running tight on floor space in the tent but if i need to than i guess theres not much choice.
    im still trying to grasp the finer details of watering. I last watered my plant saturday at 11 am and it is now completly dry, i checked the bottom of the cup as well. how long do the roots need to breathe before i water it again? should i water it today or do i need to give it another day or two? its not wilting at all yet.
    Newbie here. You mentioned on one of your posts you use a turkey bag. I did a search and nothing useful came up. Do you use this in drying or instead of glass jars? Methodology would be appreciated.
    Hey pennywise how are you. Did u see the latest pics i just posted of the girls. Could not have done this without your knowledge. You helped me out of what could have been a big catastrophe. Emilya schooled me well and i have a better understanding of deficiency and nutes watering and such. Both u guys are amazing thank u agian. Keep a watch till i harvest.
    Hey penny. Do i spray this epsom solution directky to the leaves or water her with it?

    Just saw this message, do 1 teaspoon per gallon of mix. I would give it 2 or 3 times then hold off and see how she responds
    Pennywise i was able to get epsom salts how much do i mix into a gal of water. And do i give everyday or just with my reg watering schedule?
    Hey pennywise i got a major prob. Gog mag deficiency cant get calmag for at least a week due to holiday and other bullshit. Is their anything else I can do to kinda nurse it till then? Or should i cut my losses with this one and start a bean of a diff strain? I dont no how long that u can leave it before its irreversible.

    Ok how much do I use. Their in 1.5 gal pots
    And i just realized that the peat and perlite had traces of nutes in it so i think this was the root of the ph issue. Now im a little afraid to use a bloom fert cause i dont no what nutes were in this mix. Any suggestions on brand of bloom nute that isnt to strong? And should i have calmag on hand too? As i hear that can be an issue in flower. If i had my way id just leav them be add nothing and see what happens. What do you think.

    Oh yer plenty of nutes in peat. Peat is basically all decomposed goodness, thats why cannabis soil has a mix of pete, sand, perlite, loam blablabla lol. Side note: did you know a pete bog can decompose a body well. Not as quick as acid or even lime but a lot faster than just burying in dirt lol

    Hahahha NO I WAS WRONG ITS THE OPPOSITE. It preserves them. What an egg. I knew it was something like that though lol

    Lime IS the one that decomposes
    Hey pennywise quick question any reason why my plants are sucking up water like crazy? Does that slow down during flowering? And if so should i wait till the dirt has dried completely before i water agian? At this point i don't want to overwater. They only get watered 1x a week cause thats how long they take to dry out. And when i do water i want runoff coming out the bottom?
