I have been growing these out on the terrace here in southern Spain, one is still growing now, no problem with temps as low as 5/6 celsius at night. Yield was not huge, looks like it will be an interesting smoke when the cure is over though.
Something needs to be said about these things. I have been growing autos outside now for five years. I have tried a lot of brands. Dinafem, Lowryder, Flash Seeds and others. All have been OK but just that. Yield has always been a disappointment, despite pictures of other people taking ounces off similar plants.
But those days are gone now. The Magnum is a game changer. It is an autoflowering plant that is worth growing and is easy to grow. I chucked a seed in a 26 litre dirt pot with standard potting soil and a bit of perlite and watched with astonishment as this thing turned into the most productive auto I have ever grown. Around 60 days later I had well over 40 grammes of really decent bud. No fancy feeding or anything. Every branch was like the main cola. There was no pop corn. Every bud a winner. I didn’t have my scales at the time but it filled one of those standard glass clip top jars full, one plant.
Now I smoke a lot of weed, seriously. Some varieties are just not strong enough for me, or I get through them too fast. The Magnum does well here. It’s a strong happy energising high which allows you to do work and concentrate on tasks. I was smoking it at the same period as some OG Kush and I have to tell you this was the preferred morning smoke. It didn’t taste as good, but I preferred the effect. No shit. And it lasts – as I said, this is no bullshit weed. Friends thought the same. The effect has been compared to the strain Jack Herer. It makes you go off and do stuff and forget about smoking any more for quite some time. In this way, it ends up lasting longer than other weeds I have smoked (even photoperiod varieties!)
The best auto yet. The good news is they have a similar plant that has a more stoned effect (a Northern Lights cross) called Deimos. I’ll be reporting back on this soon.
I cut this one when the trichomes had just turned milky, it didn’t even get a proper cure and it still kicked arse. Can you tell I am impressed? These are going to be super plants for growing outdoors in the UK. In Spain, I have heard reports of 250g per plant when these are grown in the earth! Local farmers are apparently dumfounded.
There was one male in my seeds, however, which was a bit of a surprise from an autofem.
If you have a vaporizer that works with liquids, or just want to know how to make a glycerine tincture then check out this excellent video which explains how to properly infuse glycerine with cannabis.
Note this comment from the original poster of the video:
“Please note i made a silly error when creating the video, the ratio is 7 parts VG to 3 parts VG. So for my example of 5g of herb there would be 28ml of VG and 12ml of PG. I hope this clears everything up, sorry for any confusion caused! If you still are unsure simply leave a comment and I will try to get the them all. Thanks for watching!”
Instructions come at the beginning of the video followed by an actual demonstration.
I’ve had the Grow Northern MS006 LED for a while now, and have been really pleased with performance so far. I’ve grown out a couple of strains on it (this is the unit that runs at around 180 watts – almost nothing) and have not noticed a real difference between this unit and a 400 HPS, except buds seem to be a bit more colourful and of course everything runs a hell of lot cooler.
There are three ways of running the lights – one two or three strips, which is useful for starting off seedlings. I did find that the light penetrated through the plants really well and that it could do this from quite a distance also. My small 1x1M tent was completely bathed in light by this device.
I’m no expert grower – using this unit I pulled the highest yield I have managed so far from an auto (around 40 grammes, not a huge amount I know, but for me a first) on a Dinafem Blue Cheese autoflowering. I had some Arjan’s Haze growing in the background of these plants and they did really well even though they were not the primary plants I was growing.
The light has its own fan which make a little noise when in operation but nothing major. It does not get hot – all in all a great light – totally worth the money. This will be my permanent grow light now and I am thinking to get another soon to expand my grow space.
So I would absolutely recommend this light. I have been looking for an LED that actually works (so many don’t!) and this one does. That’s why Dutch Passion are now selling it as their LED light. You can’t get a much better recommendation than that.
The recent legalisation of cannabis has brought much complete ignorance to the forefront of society, as well as a load of spin. With this in mind, I thought it a good time to write a simple cannabis guide for people who need education. A lot has been going on in the world of weed. We […]
