1st time grower - advice / tips

Posted (edited)

Hoping for a little advice or personal opinion if possible as this will be my first grow of any kind. UK Based.

 

Have a bunch of Auto Critical Orange Punch from Grizzly Seed Bank and plan to germinate with a basic paper towel method.

 

Planning to plant in Canna Coco Plus Pro in 11L hydro square fabric bags.

 

Am I safe to immediately start the grow outside as opposed to the plants spending some time initially indoors?

 

On hand I have PH Perfect Tech Micros 1L and Bloom 1L and also CalMag 1L.

 

Opinions on :

 

1 - when to start feeding nutrients / bloom / calmag and doses?

 

2 - how often and volume of watering?

 

Having read varied reviews I was planning :

 

Week 1 - watering only

Week 2 - 1ml Cal Mag / 1ml Micro / 2ml bloom

Week 3 - 5 - 2ml Cal Mag / 2ml Micro / 4ml Bloom

Week 6 + - 3ml Cal Mag / 3ml Micro / 6ml Bloom

 

I may have this totally wrong, hence why I am asking for general opinion.

 

Another concern is the expected smell. I may just try 1 initial plant to assess how bad the smell is as I plan to place in the garden in an area that gets the most sun that unfortunately sits between 3 joining gardens. 

 

Greatly appreciate advice / opinions. Will take pictures throughout.

look at some auto diaries and when you find one you like the look of see what way they done it, i'm a photo grower so can't help much but i would say 2 weeks might be to early to start bloom though.

Use bloom when it's showing budlets when it's actually gone through the stretch and then go half strength the first week you notice pistels coming from bud sites/ (nodes) . If it's your first time it's hard as u wanna get it right but you need to observe the plant on its diffrent stages of growth to no what's happening tithe plant and it will tell you if it needs help .

When you say gone through the stretch, do you mean to start the bloom once its stopped growing in height?

Yea pretty much as it will still grow taller in height  slowly whilst fotming buds .and still feed half strength grow nutes and taper up bloom nutes
