• The Autoflower Conversational

    Weekly Topics:

    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!

Oh thanks for all this info. To be honest I had an idea about all these here and there, but you made it seem easier :)
My only inquiry here is how much the flowering nutrients help buds to improve. What I mean is that I havent practised each nutrient by my own. As a result I cant be sure. The one nutrient sais that makes buds larger or fixes the smell or makes them looj better. But how much do they really get their job done ?
Look at the schedule above. Notice how the amount of Bio-Gro and Bio-Bloom changes as the plant gets older? this is shifting the nutrient blend from veg to flower along with the other products changing amounts as well. Trust me just follow their schedule.

Yeah dont worry. What you say seems pretty logic. I can say I got baited by marketing

I have grown with many Nutrient Brands and all of them grow good weed. They could not stay in business if it did not work. They do Hide stuff you need in different products "Secret Sauce" kind of thing. But it works against them as well because you cannot add something to your nutrient schedule if you do not know everything that is in it.

Start week 3 with 25% nutes. Use a water, water, feed, repeat cycle when the pot needs water. Then move to 50% strength nutrients. After that increase by 10% each week until a little bit of tip burn then back off 10%.
Sorry ManOGreen to interrupt you, but I got a bit confused by this sentence.
You tell me to start nutrients from the 3rd week. Ok I understand this one. But what do you mean saying "then move to 50% ". What do you actually imply by using the word " then " . Then = at flowering stage ? Then= at the next watering, after the one I have used 1/4 of nuts ? Also after this exact watering, in which I add 50%, I will immediately start +10% nuts week by week ? Or I wait for several days, check for yellow leaves ( because of nutrients' " overdose " ) and then I start to compound +10% ?

etc..

until you see a little bit of tip burn then back-off 10%

Ps. Fertigate = water+nutrients.

Seems like a lot of small yielding indoor grows don't have enough light, and or air exchange. I would rather see people spend money on lighting, ppm, and ph meter than a whole line of nutes. When I got started with photos about 20 years ago the guy at the store told me just use general hydroponics grow and bloom, I grew a lot of nice plants out of 2 little boxes of nutes. I am not suggesting you do this. I am just pointing out there are ways to keep it cheap. I generally give friends who start growing some of my nutes so they can go out and buy the other things needed to grow.
There are a lot of people that have their systems for growing here and will help you if you have a problem. I would stick to one of their systems if possible.

Yeah I believe the same. I had met an old guy before several years who was totally old school. He had also learned growing from even older people when he was young. I can tell you, he had like 50 plants in his garden outdoors and he had pure native weed. He was using only muck from animals. Nothing else
But unfortunately, most of people at this moment, we dont have the same experience. Not only with weed, but with nature and plants in general. Old people were close to nature from like day1 they were born, so they have a totally different perspective from us. These people maybe dont need nutrients at all, but this doesn't mean that nutrients don't help us new people.
If someone has been growing for many years then he maybe doesnt need a bunch of nutrients. But I believe, they really help new growers.
For instance, me personally, I will use the most important BioBizz nutrients, even if ManOGreen suggested me to buy all of them. Ofc I trust him, but I lack of money. But on the other hand, I will measure pH every fooking day, and also I will have 120W on front of them 20hrs/day. So I will still be ok, even with less nuts

In general, I was a bit anxious about the quantity I gonna get. I have seen many ppl ending up with 5,10,20 grams per plant, both on forums and utube videos but I believe they really did something bad. For me the most important parts are 1. Light 2. " communication " with the plant and 3. Correct watering ( with or without nuts ). As soon as I am sure with my growing and my feeling I will do well, then I stopped caring about that

Don't get so hung up on what you get per plant and worry more about what you get per space you should try for 1 to 2 oz per square foot
