All seeds up or almost up. Using auto pots so will hand water until they are on their 4 th set of leaves and then start the auto watering system.
So far so good. This is my 1st soil-less grow as well as 1st autoflower. Feel like a teen again...:woohoo:

Added some weak nutes to the pots. 1/8th strength to start.
Noticed some yellow spots on the 2 NL/Mxi plants. Had them covered with plastic bottles but no fresh air so removed the bottles.
No further spots noticed.
Put a humidifier in the tent to bring the RH up to 60/70% Temps at 25/26C. Lights dimmed to half and set at 28 inches above.
Now to wait for the roots to fill out and the plants to respond.
Cream caramel on the left and 2 NL/Mxi on the middle and right. Cream Caramel looks the best so far.

Hey St.Tom,
Thanks for the tips.
Yup, going to go 1/2 strength nutes at most when they are in full veg and flower mode.
I will stop by your grow threads and read on how you do things.
:cheers:

Problems with too much humidity or moisture with the 2 NL/maxi autos. The 1st set of leaves showed some rot and were dying probably due to having water bottles over them for too long a time as I mentioned above. The leaves turned brown so I cut them off before they spread.
They are still growing but slowly. Hope this doesn't severely affect the final outcome.
The Cream Caramel is a nice green and the largest of the plants with no signs of discoloration.
Humidifier keeping things at 60/70% RH.
Temps at 25/26C
Will update again in several more days. Hopefully with healthy green growth all around.
