Hi everyone

Been lurking and absorbing the info on this great forum and thought I'd register and start a diary.

It all started a couple of weeks back when a friend gave me about 100 seeds of unknown strain or origin. I shall refer to them as mysterons. Apparently, someones grow went to seed by accident and he gave them away to anyone that wanted them. So after some experimentation I decided to get the neccesary kit and have a bash.

For the price of a few ounces of hash I'm all set up and ready to go.

I got:

A 900mm x 900mm x 1600mm Secret Jardin DS grow tent.
A 400w HPS bulb
A 4" extractor fan etc

The tent seems pleasingly well made and most importantly doesnt let any light escape as there's a police station across the road. I'm limited to 1.6m high because it's an attic room used for junk storage.

Here's a pic:

The mysteron seeds were only supposed to be for mucking around with but they have produced three little weedlings that I'm already sorta fond of.

Here's one of them:

The all fem seeds I bought for the main project are:

1 x Skunk#1 - germed, potted, 1/2" tall
1 x Northern Lights - germed, potted, not broke soil
1 x Jack - germed, potted, not broke soil
! x Shortrider - germed, potted, just broke soil

Nutes to be used are Biobizz Bio-grow/bloom and Topmax. Compost is John Innes soil mix.

So far everything's going well. My only worry is what to do the mysterons. Do I go with just the 4 known, fem plants or do I cram the 3 unknowns in with them?

Anyway, hopefully it'll turn out to be awesome. I'm a novice grower but a veteran smoker.

Welcome to the forum, HD, and good luck with everything.

Since you are that close to the cops, you should really prevent them from smelling anything. Try and get a carbon filter.

Hi Sticky and thanks for the welcome.

I've got a carbon filter installed, you can see it top right in the first pic. Handily, there's a hatch to a shallow roof space just above the tent to direct the expelled air into.

i can only see the second pic, which took a lot to load. Insert the images directly here. It's a lot easier for everyone to see them.

Right, got it. This is the tent of awesomeness. I bang my head on that lightbulb everytime.



And this is my favourite mysteron.

Thanks UK1. I'll be happier smoking something other than £100 an ounce hash!

Hi and thanks sickle.

UK1, I agree. Erratic supply is my biggest bugbear. I've a few mates who gift me ready to smoke buds they've grown. It would great to return the favour.

The police here in smalltown Scotland are pretty decent UK1, the biggest danger is smalltown nosey neighbour - That HD chap keeps taking bags of compost into his house but doesnt have any pot plants on his window sill, whatever can he be doing? - kind of thing.

Good luck man. I'd keep the mysterons, but then again, 4 plants will fill your space easy. How large do you intend to grow them before flowering? You going to be taking cuttings?
