Greetings, from Australia

G’day Aussie growers,

I thought I’d start a thread to see if I can find other growers in Australia. I’d love to talk about the envirnmental challanges that you guys face across the country.

I’m from Sydney. Where are you from and how big is your grow!?

Looking forward to hearing from you all!

Good day mate.

Not from Aus but loads of my South African friends live there now. I have grown a couple dank strains from Oz, such as Ducks Foot from Wally Duck. Growing conditions are similar in SA and Oz, and we have also had a hot,dry summer. Difficult growing conditions to say the least. Hope to see you posting some of your grows. Cheers.

Welcome to the GN forum @growwithmoss
Can I assume that you are growing outdoors, if you are talking about environmental factors. What is the environmental factors that is your concer? Our light schedule changed here in SA on the 2 Feb, my plants started flowering about a week later (10Feb). Our Autumn season starts in March not the beginning of February. 3 to 4 weeks less veg time outdoors. We also had a warm and dry summer this year in SA like @chrisj said, but some places had alot of rain and some places not enough or nothing.

Welcome to GN. I’m in Oklahoma, USA. Worlds apart. I love reading about different countries and growing weed. I’m very blessed to live in Smokelahoma.lol, where its legal. I’m allowed 6 flowering and 6 seedlings. Currently I have White Widow and Harlequin in flower and 7 in veg. Will be growing outside soon also.
Hope you enjoy this forum. I learn a lot here!

Hey, Thanks for the reply!

I’ve just started indoors. Have been outdoors before but thought I’d try inside! I’ve bought myself a 100cm x 100cm tent and a 450 watt Viper Spectra Light (Dim-able Veg and Bloom).

I have 2 feminised Pineapple Express seedlings at the moment. One was planted 25 days ago and has been severely stunted because my tent was in the wrong room in my house - it got to 37 degrees Celsius!

I have since moved my tent into the garage where it’s averaging 26 degrees Celsius at the moment. Much better! The first Pineapple is recovering (It’s going to be small though unfortunately) but the second Pineapple Express seed that I planted is 7 days in and looking reeaallyyyy good so far - I think.

I’d love to know what I should be feeding them? Any good Australian brands?

Looking forward to hearing from you all!

What medium are you growing in ? That wil depend when you can start feeding and I normally start feeding when the little Cotyledon leafs Die Off. Again, depending on your medium.
Start off with a 1/4 strength of nutes and work your way up after week 3 or 4. Depending on how long your are vegging the plants.
Sorry No idea what nutes are available Down Under…

I mixed together 1/4 peat moss with 3/4 of propagation mix I got from the local hardware shop.

To be honest, I haven’t planned on a veg duration. I just wanted to let them go and make a decision based on how they look. Again, this is my first indoor grow - it’s all very exciting!

A friend of has been growing for a couple of years and swears by Seasol (https://www.seasol.com.au/home-garden/products/seasol/)

Do you think this will suffice? I’d love to find something here specific to growing cannabis…business idea?

@growwithmoss Nigel is a beauty in the video. As he says its not a nutrient its an overall health tonic. Damn good stuff it is. You might want to look at their other range of products for a vegetative growth nutrient high in nitrogen and another nutrient for later on during flowering growth. Seasol will help you nevertheless and if a mate says it works take his advice.
