    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!

After a mediocre first indoor grow, giving it another try. Soaked three Growers Choice Candy Kush seeds last week for 16 hours, then to paper towels in a dark warm drawer. One germinated and the others are still trying. If they don't germinate in another day or two, goes back in water. Thats what GC says to do anyways.?

Grow medium is ProMix HP 60%, perlite 40%

3 gallon cloth pots on risers. Picked up a washing machine drain pan for the floor of the tent

Lighting is 4x 50 watt cobs with lenses. Can go to 6x if the other seed pops

4" Iobonics variable speed exhaust fan with filter. Passive intake.

9'' circulating fan. These fans are inexpensive, last long and put out a lot of air. Just hang them upside down.

Nutrients are Greenleaf Mega Crop, Cal Mag Pro, Bud Explosion and Sweet Candy

Water is well water ph'd to 6.2 to 6.8

The set up lighting at 30 inches

First H2O with nutrients @ 1/3rd dosage. Mega Crop (MC), Cal/Mag Pro (CMP) and Sweet Candy (SC) per gallon. Watered 2 cups. 6.5ph

Lowered the lighting to 30 inches, 19/5. Lux meter shows 18k at the top leaves. First two weeks light meter was 10k at the plant. Using the lux meter is an experiment at this point.

Did some water/nutes and snapped a couple pictures. Sure like the structure of this plant and node spacing.:joy: A shame only 1 out of 3 seeds were viable. First and last purchase from Growers Choice for me. Have a Critical Purple from them I'll try outdoors in a couple months. Genetics/breeding mean everything with autos I am learning. :headbang:

Does the red stem indicate anything?

Cruising along in veg. Upped the nutes to 2g MC, 1g Cal/Mag Pro, .6g Sweet Candy/gallon. LST on the main stem. Light meter reads 32k at canopy level. About 20 inches from lights to canopy.

My question on nutes in Pro Mix HP: Do you add nutes with every watering, or some other water/feed schedule?

Single girl on the floor doing her auto flower boogie:dancer:

CK started stretching about 48 hours ago so I did some LST to open her up. Last two feedings 6.5PH H2O only, about 4 cups each time. Back with Greenleaf Nutrients @ 50% next feeding. Light meter reading 30k at the canopy.Temperatures running around 79 to 84F with 60-65%RH. Trying to keep the VPD between .9 and 1.2 right now.

It was around this time on my first grow that things started going downhill.:wall: Hopefully this single girl will show us how good she boogies in the upcoming weeks. .:woohoo1:

Here's a picture of her after LST - looking through the tent viewing window:joy: Thoughts, comments, always welcome. Thanks for dropping by:d5:

Day 35 is when I started seeing problems :nono: with my first grow. None here that I can see:vibe:. Picture taken just before lights out so she's relaxing a bit.

Upped the nutes today to 2g MC, 1g Cal/Mag pro, .3g Sweet Candy and .3g Bud Explosion. 350ppm total nutes. Well water @6.5ph, watering about 3 to 4 cups every 2 days. Light meter at canopy in the 30 to 35k range. Doing my best to keep the VPD between .9 and 1.2 right now.

A few months ago, I'd never heard of VPD. I like it. VPD with calculator is what I am using. Found this on some post, and I can't recall who shared it, but thanks again.:thanks: Actually, last October I had no clue about most of these things :frowny: Way different than outdoors :smokeit:

I really like the structure of this girl. LST'd and some leaf tucking to jazz her up. :kiss:

Thanks for checking out my little auto flower boogie, an stay safe n sane:thumbsup:, or something like that:joy:
