Couple of quick questions guys,

1- how long should a seed (ladyburn1974) take to 'pop' in the tissue/DVD method. Currently on day 5 and still nothing?

2- what does anybody using a NFT system use to stop the noise of the runoff back into tray without affecting the roots or feed?

Seems daft questions but cheers in advance.


When I done ladyburn 1974 I just done it straight in the lil root it plugs in a an old coca cola fridge/heater with the heatin on sporadically n it popped in like 2 days 5 days is ages :(

I think I might move to coco after some experience with watering / nuting soil. It's handy with longer watering time as im racing alot this year so won't be here quite a few weekends

No. Wherever and whatever I grow will allways be soil. I could go on about the pros of soil etc... But what it really boils down to is that I'm a really really lazy fucker and soil is so easy. ;)

Soil is king guys.... commercial croppers need hydro like Tesco need GM products etc etc, if you do grow to sell then there is no argument against hydro/aero however if you only grow personal then organic/soil is the only real option (Its just so fucking easy and produces the best end product!)

And in the perfect world there wouldn't be any commercial croppers cos everyone would be organically growing in their greenhouses over summer and there would be an abundance of free weed for all!

Are you drying them under light? I heard light destroys THC after the chop?

Surely coco is every bit as easy to work with that soil is but you get much better results with coco. I done a few in soil last run as ran out of coco when repotting and there was a noticeable difference in the coco's favour.

An improved flavour or just different soil for me is handy as I can't always get at my girls all the time and sometimes I need to be away for 4/4 days

Also, after getting home last night. Picking some bud and I rolled a lovely joint. It didn't have much flavour, im assuming quick dry is to blame. But very smooth, long lasting and a very happy high. And the best bit is I didnt have to see anywhere or hand over money. I was chuffed although the firsy grow wasn't a soaring successes, it's a start and I dont plan on stopping ! I'd like to thank my family , Jesus and UK growers unite for getting me going haha

No that was just for the pic. Nice and dark in there now.
Anyone know the best room temp for drying?

For the worse? Were you using organic nutes? Coco favours inorganic nutes.

As for easy, when I switched to soil I threw out my PH and EC tester and have never looked back, no flushing, no adjusting, no adding this or that, just a measuring syringe, water and bottle of organic liquid nutes, using a autopot system to water you only need to top the tank up once a week, thus visit the room once a week.

They grow themselves :)
