Hola amigos!! :yep:

I'm finally finding a bit of spare time that allows me to post some of my stuff :yes: I was already missing this hobby for a couple of months now... This is a Test Grow and it will end up in the Sweet Seeds Test Grows subforum, but for now, if you allow me, I will be updating the thread right here, because I feel better together with you ;) ...and I would get a bit bored if I was away of the party :unsure: Obviously I'm not participating in the contest but I expect to retribute some of the good entertainment that you guys are sharing with your grow diaries

Well, let's speak about important things... Now it's time for me to try the last 2 autoflowering strains that Sweet Seeds got into the market a few months ago (soon we'll have much more autos in our catalog). After the great results I got with my test grows of Cream Caramel Auto, Black Jack Auto, SAD Auto and Speed Devil #2, now we'll see how the other 2 behave: Big Devil #2 and Fast Bud #2

:|Grow Details|:

  • Closet: Homebox XS (60cm x 60cm x 120cm / 2ft x 2ft x 4ft)
  • Ventilation: Extractor RVK 100 A1 (160m3/h) and 2 Sunon (one blowing air against the lamp and the other against the plants)
  • Light: 36wCFL for the first 8 days, HPS70w from day 8 to day 18 and HPS400w from day 18 to harvest
  • Containers: 4 pots of 500ml for the first 18 days and 4 pots of 18 litres for flowering (from day 18 to harvest)
  • Soil: For vegetative Canna Professional and for flowering Canna Bio Terra Plus
  • Ferts: GuanoKalong Liquid Guano, Canna BioVega, Canna BioFlores and Biobizz Topmax
  • Against plagues: Neem as preventive and Rotenona to fight them, if needed

I've sprouted 3 seeds of each strain. At day 16 I will choose the 2 best plants from each variety to pass into my Homebox and the others will be taken by a friend and will be flowered in his garden (I will probably not see them again). Like this we will also be able to see how homogenous they are. Well, I left the seeds in wet paper towels and inside a plastic box as I usually do and then I've been out for about 48 hours. When I came back all the sweets popped out... one of the Big Devil #2 was only showing a bit but obviously it wouldn't go back into to shell.

I hope you enjoyed this introduction to the Fast Bud #2 and Big Devil #2 test grow, where you'll be able to check the excellent quality of the work of the Sweet Seeds breeders. In a couple of days I'll leave you another update and then, altough I'm a bit short of time this days with the contests and the moderation of the forums, I promise to update this diary at least once a week but when it is possible I'll do it twice a week. Sometimes you may find this thread closed. It will always be a provisional closure and for a short period of time. I only do it to reserve the first post of each page for an update. When you see it closed and you want to comment or ask something you just have to wait for a few hours and it will be open again, like a seed :)

Thank you very much for your visits and good luck for your competition grow diaries! :dev:

Tommy, Those shots are some of the best seedling pictures i've seen to date! :yep: Hope you are doing fine otherwise. You must be a busy man, keeping track of all the comp diaries and all. Still, no doubt that you will produce another great report with these beans. Will be waiting impatiently for your updates. :guitar:

On another note, a good friend got a closet grow going on atm and guess what auto seeds i've gotten him. What else but sweet seed's cream caramel auto, S.A.D. auto and finally fast bud 2! They are still young atm, but i think they'll turn out great. Something nice to look at before i start my own comp diary. :wink:

kind regards,

AT :oldtoker:

Hi mates!

Thanks for the visits and comments :yep:

Hi Austrian Tokker, what's up? Yep, very busy lately, hehehe, but it's also fun sometimes ;)

Hiphip and Saddam: hey guys! For this pics I used my Canon EOS 550d. Some pics were made with the Sigma 50mm DG EX 2,8 fp Macro (goes until 1:1) and some other pics were made with the Canon MP-E 65mm (goes from 1:1 until 5:1). The cam and the sigma lenses are not that expensive, in my opinion... But when it comes to the MP-E 65mm things become a bit more expensive, hehehe...

Any other questions about cams and lenses please send them to me by PM :yep:

Saddam: no mate, I'm not in the contest, hehehe...

This is a Test Grow and it will end up in the Sweet Seeds Test Grows subforum, but for now, if you allow me, I will be updating the thread right here, because I feel better together with you ...and I would get a bit bored if I was away of the party Obviously I'm not participating in the contest but I expect to retribute some of the good entertainment that you guys are sharing with your grow diaries

Keep passing by! Sweet regards! :smokin:

Hi mates!

Thanks for all the kind comments and for visiting this recently started grow diary :yep:

I'll work on another update very soon and I'll re-open it as soon as the new update is posted. It will remain closed now just for a little while so I can get the next post (which is the first post of page number 2) for the update ;)

And let me take the opportunity to remind you guys, once again, that I'm not participating in the contest :stoned: Obviously :smoke:

And anyway I know I wouldn't have any chance to win it. Actually, this is going to be a demonstration that have very good fotos is not enough to win the contest. You'll see me posting this diary here, with some good fotos and all, but probably it wouldn't win the contest for lack of all the other ingredients we are evaluating for the contest, the whole 6 parameters that count...

Here's a little reminder about the evaluated parameters:


  • ★ The aspect/appearance of the plants;
    ★ Tidiness and general appearance of the grow room;
    ★ Quantity and specially quality of the photos, showing the growth evolution of the plants;
    ★ Originality of the methods, techniques and resources applied;
    ★ Frequency of posting;
    ★ Companionship and fair play demonstrated.

:oldtoker:

Definetly lots of you guys are doing a great job in all of the parameters :yes:

More news about my autos soon ;) Keep it sweet :yep:

tommy
