A real big apology to all following.
Had a lot to deal with the last few weeks with life. Had to put a few things on hold

Getting back on track.
And I will have a more detailed update this weekend
But a quick run down.

About a week ago I started the group on light nutes.
2 ml per gallon.

Everything is on the bottom feed now

The autos have got to the preflower stage. Slowly bringing the light cycle down to 12/12 now. Will be on 12/12 by this time next week.

Other than that. All I have done is tuck and bend branches into the trellis.
I did pull the f.cookies.
Was way too runty.
No time for stragglers

Here is the grow!.

Glad to see you back, hope things are easin up for you. How many days since sprouting are your beauties? I’m really liking what’s going on with my girls. Down to two plants filling my 2x4 tent with the lone platinum 300. Both flowering. Thanks for your previous work on the forums it’s helped this beginner immensely and I’m sure many others.

When it rains it floods

We are still here. Just barely.
All 3 photos turned out to be boys.
So down to 2 autos
Dropped a hand full of beans to replace some space and try to keep perpetual.

It is becoming a struggle.

So the 2 left are on about 4 ml of nutes per gallon. And doing well
Getting very frosty
Apologies for the delays and set backs. But these are the trials of growing lol
Cheers

    For your write up of a growing guide. Food for thought. Thank you for taking the time and effort it took to do this.

To make up the lack of attention to this guide
Going to pretty much re do seedling on
Them males really bummed me out and I kinda lost focus on everything.

So where we are now.
I planted 2 more autos and got a doner plant from the bro @CaNNaDON420
So we have a kush auto and auto ak47
And the donor photo is an ak47
Hoping it's not another male as I am at 5 in a row on my photos being boys. Pretty frightening odds.
Will get some pics of the 2 autos that are getting close to the finish line and the 3 new babies in the next few days and kick this thing off again and do it proper.

Thanks for dropping by.

Hello again Roshi, wondered what happened. Bad luck with the males... my four girls are almost there with the CBDOC going to harvest next weekend. Got a digital microscope to check out trichomes and about half are milky flushing for one week. All three Blue Dreams are about two weeks behind but starting to bulk up. Had to get another tent and light to keep all four happy. Looking forward to seeing your next posts.

SEEDLING CARE AND WATERING

The seedlings won't need much attention in the 1st week or so.
A nice misting here and there. Damp soil high humidity and temps mid 70s to low 80s
They dont need much light either. Just enough to keep them from stretching out
Over watering is a big no no with the babies. Just want the soil damp enough for the roots to be happy and look for water.
Best to sprinkle water lightly more often at this stage. And I'll water lightly like this until they are ready to bottom feed.

How I water.
I NEVER water at the stalk.
Always water in a ring starting at the leafs end.
This is because we want to expand our roots. And the roots will do the water distribution job that they are supposed to do. Make them work a little and they get bigger and stronger.
I dont always use a cup like this to water. View attachment 1118809View attachment 1118810View attachment 1118811View attachment 1118807View attachment 1118812View attachment 1118813
Note* all these photos were from last night and a did water them again today as they were dry on top.
Less water more often.

And also. If using a trellis. Get a watering wand. Essential garden tool

But the cup was just to make a good watering line to start. And I did ph the water to 6.52
Watered until damp. Light water. Just like with the seedlings the young plants are only getting water and as needed
Less water more often works for me. Especially since I want the tops fairly dry when they go to bottom fed/autopots. And I also stress the less more often because many many problems will come from over watering. Plant problems , mold problems, bug problems, a whole lot of problems that I have had to deal with from too much water.

And i won't add any nutes until flower unless they ask me for some nutes.
So after we get on bottom feeding its smooth sailing.

More time to focus on training or trellis training not having to mix nutes every other day.
So now ots all about monitoring room conditions.
My temp was great. Right at 79°
Which is fine for me.
Room humidity was low. So I added the humidifier.
Rh is now about 45% but I dont want to bring it up any higher as I have a lady flowering right next to the little ones.
If they were on their own I would be looking for 60%
So I supplement with a mister bottle when I can. Not sure it does much. If anything keeps leafs clean and makes me feel better.
The guide will get a little slow as far as what to do next because there is not much to do. Simple right?
So I'll keep the updates coming and cover things I have learned the hard way along the way to keep it fun and moving along
And here if anyone has any questions or feedback.

Cheers
Fantastic info, just the thread I needed :thanks:
