Greetings to the wonderful people of AFN . Where to start? Well, seeing that I have 4 tents lying around it would be a shame not to run them one more time before the hardcore summer heats, right? Not to mention that I received some Biotabs goodies from @Biotabs F69 (thank you very much!) and I still wanna perfect my Autopot-Biotabs setup, so off we go to new growing adventures . After the last grow I decided that I wanna try out soil instead of coco this time to see if I can battle some problems and disadvantages I had the last couple of grows (CalMg defs, seedling problems - due to lousy watering probably?), so almost the same setup this time just with soil . Not to forget, I'll be running photo-sensitive plants for the first time . I'm testing FLOrganics in 2 pots right now and it had to be photos, so I planted 2 more to fill one tent. Very very excited about this! Another new thing I'll try this run is Airdomes. One soil tent will have 4 autoflowers with airdomes, we'll see what it can do. Think that's about it, as I'm a lazy (or busy? ) stoner I'm just gonna blatantly copy the first post from my Coco-Autopot thread as it's almost the same thing . The guest-list will stay the same also, so don't be confused guys, this IS a different thread . Back to the topic: Setup: 4x4 tent with 600 W MH/HPS combo and ventilation 15 L AutoPots and a 45 L reservoir Biotabs line up with some amendments in Guanokalong soil/perlite/worm castings (50/40/10) Details: the tent is a HomeBox Ambient 1,2 x 1,2 m 6" Vents exhaust with thermo controller MH bulbs are SunMaster Cool Deluxe 600 W, HPS will be Osram/Philips GreenPower 600W + one TCL rig (BTL Starlite) for seedlings (2x55 W, 9200 K) whole BioTabs line up and the soil is amended with GuanoKalong powder and dolomite lime Strains: 4 x Mephisto Genetics - Sour Alien Livers 2 x Dutch Passion - Glueberry OG 1 x Dutch Passion - Think Different 2 x Sweet Seeds - Sweet Cheese F1 Fast Version - photo! Before I describe the germination process, it's time to call on some friends and grobros : @Hippy_BiotabsF70 @RamboGarden @TheMongol @stoney T @CoviklaFlaire @archie gemmill @Sensi Jay @Only1Sky @Micron Creek @water farm @Seabass @tripaholic88 @912GreenSkell @KonopCh @KrazyDave @Slater @Ribbzzy @Ripper @guerillagrower#65 @Growtogrow @DutchPassionTony Grab a seat guys and enjoy the show . GERMINATION: I've put the seeds in a shot glass of tap water, without a heating mat this time as the average temperatures have risen and the temps in the room were around 23°C, which is OK by me. After a day the seed sank to the bottom and after 2 days in the water the seeds sprouted a little tap root which tells me that they are ready for a starter plug . Last grow I concluded that I've transplanted the seedling a little bit too soon and this time I wanted some kind of nursery pot to keep them 10-15 days in it to get them well established and transplant then. What I came up with (and @Vapo69 too) are biodegradable 0.2 L cups which are a perfect place for some substrate and a starter plug: Took some Guanokalong soil and mixed it with perlite in a ratio of 70/30 and added Startrex and Mycotrex to that, which I think is more than enough for seedlings (the Silicium Flash in the pic was for the coco mix - didn't add any in the soil for now as it is already a light mix): Once everything was mixed thoroughly I filled the cups with the mix and put a starter plug on top, soaked everything and put the seeds (taproot down, around 5-6mm) in the plugs: That's about it for the introduction post, the plants are on day 23-24 and I'll try to catch up with the updates. More to come soon, wishing you a great weekend .
