Hey everyone!
Im new to posting and writing so please bare with me my mind is an adhd place riddled with mess that might come out as I go further.
I'll start with the basics I'm a 30 odd year old guy, living in the UK growing gorilla. I realise to some it may seem foolish posting, but after years of using and research I generally can't see the harm in it anymore.
I started growing when I was 16 with a couple of older other guys...... they ran this shitty little loft grow with bare minimal headroom soil 7 odd litre pots and a single 600 for 10 bb plants and an entire loft space lol, thinking back it was less then bigginner. After a year or two they had to pack up and it all stopped..... I was young and ambitious but growing was illegal here in the uk and still is today..... but I wanted in. I didn't care about money or drug dealing or all the things were all taught to believe here, it's all about. I just wanted to watch the plant grow, watch it's colours change as it grew stronger and bigger before finally reaching the end. It's always been a seedling thing for me watching Mary complete her cycle...... take away everything else she really is a beautiful and magical plant, with vast characteristics.
I've wandered to far from my final point.... my apologies.
From were I began to where I am now I've always tried to squeeze efficiency and space to the max, my last two grows have been massive trees within ridiculously small spaces with fair results. I think this is something the world should be able to-do and wanted somewhere to share my stories and my plants.
My last grow was a 3 month veg in perlite, coco mix using all advanced nutrient under a 600 watt in a .9x.9 space, the specimen was paradise seeds ice cream done with various training harvested on day 67 of flower from 12x12 and produced 18. It was a fair return considering I also used three fans a carbon filter, air cleaner and a 600 watt radiator.
Temps were kept between 22-27 with a steady humidity of 40-50 percent all the way through. (pics below)
My next grow is already underway but will start a new thread for info.
I'm sorry if it all seems a bit jumpy or missed information, I'll try my best to be as clear as I can be big feel free to ask me anything. I'm going to try my best to post regularly on here, with as much information as I can for realistic gorilla growing for anyone trying to squeeze maximum out of smaller spaces and just general tree growing (I really, really, really miss Heath!! Your a legend man!!!)

Welcome Ordanic. You have a beautiful garden! Wonderful scrog work!
Thank you man, I m hoping to try some new stuff this time around I usually top out at the forth tier,fold in half, and then tye down every 3-4 days ,but I'm going to try a little bit more manifolding type style to get a bit more verticle this time around I'm hoping to break 1.5 pw but well see what happens, mother can be a hard lady to keep happy sometimes
 
Just some "nug porn"
Hard to see her natural colours.... I wish I could have had her out in daylight to appreciate her properly but here's some close ups of her colour after cut, at night and under how lighting

Go for it! That, and a little extra veg time on them and you'll be there!
 
I got these through today! If anyone's looking at upgrading I'm not sure on the performance yet bit the unit reflector and bulb came in at 165 all in! For a double ended!!! Couldn't believe it I'll be updating as I run through for my next go round
