Hello, just wanted to start a new thread because I started some seeds tonight! So here is the deal. I will be doing 2 of each strain. I am currently almost nearing flush on my first attempts at GG and GSC. So this will we the second time doing them and the first time with Pineapple Express. So I will be trying out some Single place AutoPots with just the 2.2 gal pots instead of the 3.9gal. I will be planting the seeds directly into the 2.2 gal pots of straight coco once they sprout tails. They will be under a 600watt HPS, but I will keep the light strength down for the first week or so. I will be hand watering until the end of week 2 or 3, then try the AutoPots with AirDomes. I have a solid formula for my flowering photo plants. I use a 4 part powder nute with amazing results. I stasrted using my flower powdered nutes yesterday on one of my Six Shooters, to compare how it does. I am running some canna specific nutes on all of my Blackberrys for veg, and will be trying a couple different nutes on them in flower...including my powdered nutes. I will use the powdered nutes on the smallest plants, so I have a clear idea of how things ende up. I am hoping to be able to run my powdered nutes for flowering on my Autos in AutoPots with excellent results. But I am pretty new to Auto strains, so I want to see what works best for me. I will update pics once they are above ground, thanks for stopping by...slow

And we have 6 seedlings above ground, with shells off. Day 1 today...they will be hand watered for 2-3 weeks, then I will turn on the AutoPots and AirDomes. The 5 Blackberrys I have are doing good...2/5 are bigger and budding really fast. I am excited for these 6 new ones to get going. Will see how they do directly planted into te 2.2gal pots. I am going to start next seeds like I start my Photo seeds. I have grown in straight Coco forever. And I have already started a decent amount of Auto seeds. I know what to ecpect growth wise now, so I will be doing things differently next round of seeds! I am confident that it will work better for my personal needs to get plants started. I love starting seeds, and believe that there are many ways to start seeds. I will take pics of these 6 tomorrow. Tha ks for stopping by!

So today is Day 8. I have been giving the 2.2 gal pots a very little amount of nute water around the edges every couple days. I plan on upping the feed in a few days, unless they look hungry. They are under a decent amount of light, so I will be keeping a close eye on them. They looked good this morning, I have had them on 24/0 to keep temps stable. I will look at them out of the light tonight. If they get hungry before Sat, I will make up new water.

Good choices man. I just chopped a Pineapple Express that was a monster and she smells wonderful. Want to elaborate on these powder nutes you use? Something that you mix yourself?

Ok day 11 update. Knock on wood...they look perfect! I upped the feed today and plan on keeping it there for about a week. Unless they tell me otherwise. I will proudly say these are my best starting Autos to date. These were planted directly into the 2.2gal AutoPots. I precharged my coco and fed until last night the same feed as the precharge. The previous seeds I started were started in smaller containers, and the precharge/feeding had no grow nutes for the first few days, just Calmag and Voodoo Juice. I found that to be too little. So my precharge and feedings days 1-10 had 2ml per gal of Sensi Coco Grow, 5ml per gal Magical, and 5ml per gal voodoo juice. I started them under HPS, so I wanted the Coco to have a little more in it from the start. So far so good! I will try my next seeds in smaller containers with the newer feeding schedule...I think it was not enough from the start. I will take some pics tomorrow night. Thanks for stopping by.

What up @Habitual! This grow is gonna be done soon, I haven't updated much due to live hitting me in the face lately
:dizzy:

GSC went crazy in the middle of the grow and just started foxtailing everywhere. I don't know what the deal was since I'm feeding them all off the same Blumat. GG on the other hand is really looking good and frosty! She is filling in with some nice nugs, good and dense.
