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!!!)

Go for it! That, and a little extra veg time on them and you'll be there!
