Serpents guide to growing autos in soil

405 posts in this topic

Its very warm in my Vegging cabinet. About 25 - 30c at max, and never below 20c. It averages a good 25-7c I reckon.

Cheers, thank for the info. I just popped my seeds into the soil. Room temp is 25c

I popped my 10 cc in water 2 days ago and now I'm waiting for them to pop above ground.

My tent is usually between 25-28c.

I hate waiting for them to pop above the surface.

I'm helping a friend start 10 cream caramels and 10 big devils. Some of them have cracked in under 24hrs. I'll be showing him this guide to use. A great bit of info.

Just wondering, do you just water/feed when the pots dry out or just every couple of days??

Sorry if i've missed it somewhere else in the thread.

Thanks for taking the time to do this and for helping others :smokin:

Glad it was of help Sid, and yeah I let the pots dry out before feeding which is usually every 2-3 days in my set up

Hey Serpent. Just got my tent set up yesterday, I have an almost identical set up to yours.

Got Plant Magic Supreme Soil, Bio Silicon, Granules and Old Timers Organic Bloom. What I'm wondering is what soil to use in my 0.5l Pots before I pot up to 6.5ls. I am assuming the Supreme soil is to strong for seedlings?

Cheers

Yeah I start them in PM soil as it is a light mix, although the last couple of grows, some the seedlings have got a little burnt and I can only put it down to the soil being a little hot as autos can be sensitive, another option is to use seedling and cutting compost, most places that sell general gardening stuff normally stock it, although if your wanting to keep your grow fully organic, my understanding is seedling compost generally isn't, but I do stand to be corrected on that.

Good luck mate :hippy:

Yeah I grow all my autos in PM soil, and yup, I use granules when potting up, I don't use Catalyst, although I've got a bottle, I just never felt the need to use it, maybe one day, but I do use Bio-Silicon which I start on the first feed at pot up and I stop it as I introduce the nutes.

Keep it green :hippy:
