Not sure if it's true, but sounds legit?
As far as I know (which is limited) vinegar's antiseptic/antimicrobial properties stem solely from its acidity. If vinegar is killing microbes while coffee isn't, my guess is that the vinegar isn't diluted enough.

But hey, coffee is pretty affordable and already at the PH you want. If it's not broke, why fix it?

That makes sense, of course! Might try it at some stage in future, if needed, but hope to get my soil right before anything else. That was my main mistake.

I'm sure they would love some drip hoses on a time lapse irrigation system.

Not sure those smaller lights are really doing much good since a cob led penetrates quite well. Just wasted electric

Worm caste

worm Poop!


Worm castings are an organic form of fertilizer produced from earthworms. Also known as vermicast, worm castings manure is essentially earthworm waste, otherwise known as worm poo. As these creatures eat through compost, their waste creates an optimal soil enricher.



I tried with my rose garden but the ants were voracious!

I wouldn't add worm shit during flowering. I try to limit the nitrogen at that time. Worm castings are great though but I'd use them more during veg.

all looks good, but...

... I found one seed on one of the buds! I just plucked it off. Didn't take a photom was too upset about the seed...
Hope it stays by one, then we've still got 3+ weeks to go...

How much longer, please assess photos

Trichs clear/milky, no amber yet.
Thoughts please?

I never had a magnifier, so my rule of thumb was:

When the rate of the white "hairs" turning brown was greater than or equal to, the rate of new white hair growth, then I would harvest.

Damn they look good. I can almost smell them from here!

Thanks mothernature, yes, brown hairs are definitely another sign to look out for! I'm on it!
And yes, these girls have a very nice distinctive smell, I'm so very excited to give them a go once ready!

Talking Another update, day 70 on 12/12

Hi guys, I managed to upgrade to a little better LED, it was a good deal. Notice the colour of the light is much more towards bright purple/white, compare to the old LED, which is much more pink/red.
These photos are not photoshopped.

Do newbies really have to go through every crap situation?

i have no idea how i did not notice them earlier. oh well, i know - i had no idea what to look for. but i see they spread on one plant only (for now), so i'll deal with it asap - shop vac as step one.
I sprinkled a bit of DE on top, to be able to see how widespread the webs are. quite a bit... but only on one plant, and since i only have a week to go, there is hope, is there?
