... me either Bill, maybe it'll depend on how fast it gets taken up vs how fast the res' turns into soup! A hydro' mate can better advise?
I'll only do it if the girls are raging and drinking water like crazy. I doubt if things would go bad in three days or so.. Anything much past that is up in the air.
I haven't received any input from my little discord group on the topic.

Update #4 @Waira
Photoperiod Strains: Purple Afghan Kush, Banana Piepaya, and High Society
Approximately 75 days old.

They're all doing well. Fortunately, tropical storm "Bill", the 2nd named system of the Atlantic hurricane season, is going to miss us and head out to sea. Unfortunately, I got hit by some spider mites -- the 1st time ever for me. I caught them in time, and since we're not in flower yet, I decided to take no prisoners nor waste any time, so they got a nice strong spray of Azamax. One treatment seems to have knocked them all right out.

Maybee a little red wagon for hauling them indoors when necessary?
@Kyote - we'll they're now definitely a bit too heavy for me to quickly hand carry when the next storm comes along. So you're suggestion of a "little red wagon" or cart is perfect. I did some searching and found the right fit:

No, silly, not the red one in front .... I'm too tall to fit in that. No, what's perfect for me is the beige one in back ... the golf cart. :thumbsup:

Here is my 3rd update on the two autos I have going in this comp (Mango Smile, and Strawberry Mango Crumble). As swell as the first entry for my 3rd auto, "Creme de la Chem".

The CDLC is already at a month from sprout so I hope it is OK to enter into the comp this "late", I do have germination pics somewhere if those are required. I am only just now entering the CDLC into the comp because I wasn't aware that we were allowed 3 autos and 3 photos, I thought we were only allowed 3 total/max and I was saving my 3 potential entry for one of the photos I'll have going soon. Now that it's been clarified I'll also be entering 3 photos soon (some from clone and some from seed).


We had a pretty big cool down last week, down to damn near "record" lows for this time of year (lows around 46 and day time around 78), the past several days it has been pretty nice tho with day time temps in the upper 80s & lower 90s...There is a big warm up on the way tho, for about 5 days it will be up between 105f to 110f. So far these autos seem to thrive in the warm weather like the photos I've grown over the years, I'm curious to see how they do with multiple days of 105f+ degree weather and humidity down around 8% to 12%.

I gave the soil/plants their first proper feeding a couple days ago....Alfalfa, kelp, fishbone meal, and some molasses mixed up in a few gallons of water was left to ferment lightly for a few days, they're loving it.

They are all starting to show some pistils/pre-flowers at a few nodes as of the past several days...I don't think they're stretching quite yet but they have really kicked into gear and packing on the growth over the past 7 days or so since the last time I posted pics/update. No doubt they have developed a nice root system at this point. The Mangosmile in particular is going to be a pretty good sized plant for an auto, for a reference to their size those are 30 gallon fabric pots that they're growing in.

SOOOOOT- :cooldance::cooldance::cooldance: ...growing like you mean it! :amazon: ... Who all do we have here, and are any of them LBH ladiez? There's a group thread started in his section BTW,.... Have you looked into lights yet? It seems we have a few contenders showing up recently,... Mars appears to be looking for testers,... and our mate pop22 is now an official rep' for HLG = :thumbsup: .... deals and potential free tester gear is out there,....

All good by me Tom, stoked you are joining the fun this year, like @SOOTDAWG too - :pighug:
What the deal with your TLO soil, something you made from scratch, mix&cook like me with KIS, or special bag stuff?
I'll only do it if the girls are raging and drinking water like crazy. I doubt if things would go bad in three days or so.. Anything much past that is up in the air.
I haven't received any input from my little discord group on the topic.
:thumbsup: that's my impression too, if things are cycling in there quickly, and no fouling has happened to get the bad players established, you should be fine,...
Autos - Spotless Mind and Vanilla Latte
:d5: those are some exceptional OD auto's Mason, nicely done man!

:amazon: killkillkill! With mites, I'd even go back and hit with something else, like spinosad, or one of the essential oil based types for that real 1-2 KO punch!
This is the fucking Arachni-Borg we're talking about, there are survivors, count on it! Ride the treatments clear into bloom initiation, weekly at least... Consider getting some predatory minions after that during bloom... Arbico Organics is a great place for this! A couple hanging packs on each plant should see to suppressing any potential blow-ups down the road...

I'm wagering hurricane season is going to be a total shit-show this year, the new normal is under way and getting worse...:nono:
I'm praying CA doesn't go up in a fucking mushroom cloud this year,... record drought, record heat year after year,... :yoinks:

Otherwise, the girls look fantastic mate! :clapper: I can't believe you're at day 75 already?... might get a bit cramped in those pots by Aug.! Those 3 will become a privacy hedge before too long- :rofl:
Here is my 3rd update on the two autos I have going in this comp (Mango Smile, and Strawberry Mango Crumble). As swell as the first entry for my 3rd auto, "Creme de la Chem".
:greenthumb:looking solid mate, more fine OD auto's on display! .... If you can, during the heat/super low RH% (they will f'ing hate that more than the heat, trust me), see if you can shade them some especially during prime time Sun/heat hours, they will thank you for it! Window screen material on a roll is a good way to roll, cuts the Sun and direct roasting down significantly.... improvise a lean-to or something fast, easy and simple....

OG ocean grown!
:rofl: tell me about it! I thought I was the "OG" guy here at less than a mile away,... here's Sky snatching my braggs from me with a stone's throw away gig!
