Guy's that picture was of 7 days ago ! 

I did even write it under ! 

They were only 10 days there ! 

As the roots weren't develop so big yet I thought is useless put so much water ! 

But I did start dry wet cycle now ...

In that picture u can see only that  I was just keep them moist ..

I use usually the spry too ! 

Even if that photo' was 2 weeks ago it'd still be fine for 5 days,  just give it a soaking and if it hasn't rooted the pot yet as the centre dries it'll encourage it to send roots out into the moist Compost.

You've missed the point Sal.

 

From the very start, do a wet/dry cycle.

 

If you just water around the plant, the roots will not go searching out for water, leaving you with a small/weak root system.

 

This could be the cause of the problems you are seeing later on your grows.

 

 

 

 

 

 

@blackpoolbouncer alot of people do this in the early stages. There is a worry of the soil going sour/anaerobic. But as we know, if you follow a wet/dry cycle, this doesn't happen, and the roots soon fill the pot.

 

I think it's less of a problem with photoperiods potted up in stages, as it doesnt matter if it takes a bit longer to fill out the first pot. It seems with Auto's that this early stage is crucial to getting the best from the plant. I'm still yet to get one right tbh.

Thanks ! 

I did use plant magic granules when I pot them out and the roots are developing very nice ! But I get it ! 

The only thing is that I wanted to topping them and they tie them down but I did top in the wrong way now they are developing like crazy !

Sorry to laugh bud but what you have done there is pretty savage! 

The plant isnt going to have liked that treatment.

If you are going to top autos dont touch the side branches and only remove the growing tip from the main shoot while it is fairly young. So if you want to top at the 5th node, remove the growing tip just after its grown past the 5th node ..........minimal stress as the plant hardly notices its gone and immediately reroutes auxins to all remaining growth tips

For about a week between deciding to grow again and buying a tent all i did was read about growing auto's. I kept reading how you shouldn't top auto's. But here's a pic of one a 6" extractor fell on, topping it perfectly and chrushing it(t'was only about 3 weeks old.) Currently 12 weeks old, packet said 8-9 weeks. <rolleyes>

He is torturing his plants
