Hey all.:welcome:
This will be my first outdoor journal here on AFN, I was hoping to enter into the oudoor grow battle but I'm too late and do not qualify. So thought I would share her here instead. I had all intentions of growing her indoors but didn't have the space so out she went.....I only started documenting from that day to keep a visual track for myself. However I am really surprised at how well she's doing.....
Considering the abuse she has taken.......

The plant..
NYC DIESEL...(advanced seeds)

The tools..

..Vipaspectra 450 (day 1--day19)
..THE SUN (day 19+)

..Canna terra professional
..Dutch pro box set (grow+bloom, take root, multi total, explode)
..R/o water for feeding
..3gal (ish) paint pot wrapped in mylar (silver side in)
..Home made trellis

..A shed to hide from the worst of the weather when needed

Off we go

Day 19..decision made.......out she goes
Week 3 day 20.jpg
Day 20...braced for the unpredictable British weather
20170609_135503.jpg
Day 22..tragedy strikes on day 21....2 whole days in the elements and the f*#@ing garden clock blows down snapping the main stem and a side branch. Lost 3 fans too spent the night in the grow room to try recover, then back out into the sunshine(24hrs after damage)

Following the dutch pro feed chart 'loosely'
Feed schedule to date.
To save me writing it each time my water is R/o with 1ml ca/mg per ltr of water. (Also the quantities are just to keep measuring easy. As in day 8 'mixed a ltr but didnt feed a ltr')

Day 8--1ltr, 1ml take root. 2ml multi total

Day 15--2ltr, 1ml grow a+b

Plant snapped

Day 23--2ltr, 1.5 ml grow a+b, 2ml take root, 2ml multi total

Day 29--2ltr, 2ml grow a+b,

Day 36--2ltr, 3ml bloom a+b, 2ml take root, 2ml multi total.

Cheers mate...i know right, only just started with autos and everything i learnt told me 'minimal stress'...'they hate stress'. ..I think this could count a stress dont you haha:crying:
And to think I nearly binned her in an arse after I broke her:smoking:
Todays autos are in a league of their own!! Many of todays breeders are putting out fantastic strong plants. Try to avoid stress for sure....but dont give up on a beatup plant! ;)

They defiantly seem to be mate. Makes me wonder how well she could have done if this is how a 'broken' plant grows haha, I can't wait for my next lot as I bought some dinafem after researching breeders and these diesels were just a novice impulse buy. That being said, I can't fault them :biggrin:
