Outdoor cheap greenhouse haveagrow!

Hi @GrowingViking

I would say stop using the tomorite immediately, the plants never needed it and that's why they don't look too happy. Also give the Poundland stuff back to Poundland.  

You can get mini Trial packs of BioBizz Flowering formulas on the Bay which should suit your pocket and will give much better results

Have a read in the Auto section about how to treat Autos and especially feeding them which your currently overdoing. The first batch will give you a small result but the next ones should do a lot better with more knowledge. I would expect 3 to 4 ft plants and approaching an ounce yield for outside plants. 

 

Id give the greenhouse to the Mrs and just move the pots around the garden to keep em in the sun. If you must use it then just store them overnight  to keep the morning dew off em but with the door permanently fully open. 

 

Even for a first Grow if you do your research it can pay off. :yep:

 

It appears I cave into peer pressure easily and just purchased one of the trial packs of biobizz nutrients haha.

 

I have only been giving the autos a tiny amount of tomorite once a week at the most. Do you think perhaps this is what's stunted their growth? I definitely put them out way too early, the pics are results from around 2 months of outdoor growing so they are for sure way smaller than I think they 'should' be. What do you think? 

 

They have come on leaps and bounds for being kept in the greenhouse though.

 

Also is it possible that cheaper nutrients do more damage than good? I wouldn't be fussed if they weren't performing as well as a more costly brand but if they are actually causing harm I wouldn't use them at all.

Wow how come she destroyed them? Some sort of sadism? Lol.

 

I've had a look at all sorts and was leaning towards the biobizz stuff but it's all so expensive. When I heard there was some in Poundland that do the job I thought go for it, rather than wasting some quality product on a first time go. Let's make all the mistakes with the cheap shit :')! 

 

I have been been concerned about overwatering them. How often do you think they need to be watered? I generally give them about a litre once every few days or so, sometimes more if it's really hot. Always just played it by eye though to be honest. 

Straight up sadism! I'd moved home for a little while and she wasnt happy I guess. I was tempted to chop them the night before she composted them so I keep kicking myself:wallbash:

Just seen you've got some biobizz nutes, definitely a wise move:D ( I had a look for that poundland stuff earlier but couldnt find anything)

As for watering the young uns I keep a small coke bottle and go through that over a few days with some root stimulant in and let it get close to drying each time, by week 3 I was giving them 2L a day, half morning and half evening. Whether this was the right thing to do I'll find out this grow

Well done on the biobizz, remember to use both the grow and bloom together as it's a two part feed. I did look at the Poundland nutes and have no idea what's in them. I'm sure it's highly chemical and not what you want to burn and inhale. 

 

If if you think about it the plant has 70 odd days to grow and complete its cycle. If you have a largish pot of15 litres of decent compost mix there is enough feed to see it thru its cycle with only a small window for feeding bloom nutes. Autos are not heavy feeders and can be fed at half strength. 

 

I take it back about the MGH as it HAS done you a favour by letting you start in March sometime, hence their small size due to low light and low temperatures. With the sun now making an appearance they will pick up and start to flower so you will get a very early smoke. Nice one! What latitude are you by the way ?

 

The next batch will have full summer sun and will grow normally as long as you don't bugger up the tap root by keeping em in small pots for too long which stunts their growth. 

I distrust the MGH as they can easily become too humid and encourage bud rot hence me saying about max ventilation. 

 

I mostly grow photoperiod plants outdoors but this year have some White Widow Autos from Dinafem to go out along with some Auto/Semi Auto Whitey Freezes from RGSC.

Thing about autos is they are susceptible to bud rot so max sun and max ventilation are key.

I think I'm going to let nature take care of them the next week or two and see how that helps. 

 

I am in the very middle of the country and the weather has only just started picking up but it's very sporadic to be honest. 

 

Leaving the the doors open most of the time is helping things immensely. I have a couple of monster pots too that I can't wait to use.

 

is there a more commercial soil available that is good? I've been using all sorts of random composts I have been able to get my hands on. I can get the biobizz stuff but for the amount I need a cheaper option would be great

Levingtons with added john innes is decent  soil mate imo...not to pricey either.

Yeah I looked it up and it was a couple of quid more for some biobizz soil so I got one 50l bag of all mix and the same but light mix. I have a huge bag of big standard compo on hand as well should I need it.

Sounds like a fine plan mate! I've just bought some proper soil and nutrients so the next few in will have a better start in life...lol

we had had glorious sunshine yesterday and I had the plants out in full beam. They are already looking so much healthier for some good weather! 

 

Thanks for for all of the advice so far guys! How do you think they compare to the previous pics? Looking a lot better I think.
