    1. Myth Busting - Autoflowers Revegging (can autoflowers reveg? Give us your thoughts!)

    Come give us your thoughts; we want to hear from you!
  • We're looking for grower submissions for any autoflowers that they have had tested by a lab or using a home testing device. The idea is to create a grouping of tests that we can use a resource to show growers (both new and experienced) what kind of cannabinoids and terpenes some of the strains we're growing are testing out with!

    Appreciate any help and consideration! Click here for the thread!

Hello AFN! This will be my second attempt at growing but the first time with autos.
I'm a UK based grower and got a nice little full tent grow kit as a Xmas present off my Mrs. I've smoked for over 15 years and finally took the plunge at GYO!
I did have 3 seeds from sensi seeds but fucked each one off them up as i am a complete novice. But I always learn from mistakes and have studied forums intensely and this time forth seed seems like a winning path (so far).
So my set up is a 40x40x140cm grow tent.
1x 300w dual spectrum cfl
1 x 125w deep blue cfl
1 x dutchbarn reflector
1 x 6" fan on inside of tent for intake
1 x heater fan set on cold on outside tent pushing air to the intake for extra intake lol
1 x 10 litre pot with about 60% canna coco 30% perlite
Nutrients are canna coco A and B, cal/mag, pH up and down.
Oh and a fish tank converted into a reservoir haha.
So girl scout cookies a week old today here some pics. Any tips/ criticisms welcome I'm a good listener and need all the help I can get haha
Thanks.

3 biggest mistakes new growers make are overwatering, too much light(shouldn't be a problem with your CFLs), and too many nutes burning your ladies. While you're figuring it all out in the beginning it's best to remember Less is more! Good luck and Welcome to AFN!

Yup that's what happened to all three, first was wrong pH, then I invested in a meter and found out I was way off! Then the next was to close to the big cfl it went crispy haha, then finally the third was over watered due to conflict of information. My Mrs was pissed when I asked for more seeds haha! Oh well.
I will be doing a week 2 update on Friday she's looking good and going strong :)

So here is my girl with no cookies for me yet lol but at the 2,week mark today I think she's going well.
I fed her last night on 4ml per litre of canna coco a+b and 1 ml per litre of plant magic cal mag which come in at around 700 ppm at 5.9 PH.
I've got a photo in that small tent as well which was a freebie ( desconicida kush - delicious seeds) that is basically my experiment haha. Its had a transplant into a make shift pot made from milk bottle haha but its the only way I could fit it in there, I've actually topped it so its miles behind due to transplant shock and topping but its still green and going strong.
My question to you guys/ gals out there is should I top my auto GSC?? Any way here are some pics on my amazing camera lol but some better than none right?

Haha exactly my friend gotta be on the ball!
And thanks but I think I see a slight N toxicity (few tips pointing down )but because I feed every 5 days Or so I think it will ride it out. Please correct me if I'm wrong! If things don't turn out a flush and lower nutes should fix?
