yes, I have to agree that when growing outside in the heat of summer, I might be inclined to size up a little.:yep:

Day 26 from seed

It has been hot hot hot. Peaking in the 30's to mid 30's the last few days so they got a little flustered but today is 26c and they are happy about that. Only feed they have had is 0.5ml of silicon and 0.5ml of fish mix... Next feed tomorrow and I will be introducing 0.5ml of Bloom along with the fish mix. I am doing a bit of 'tuck training' get the side branches up there.. That's about it really, simples:

Also had to pull 2 out of the 15 Real Gorilla Seeds autos from a Guerella site so they are here now.. They are around 15 days old and flying:

They are Sour Diesel and Mazar.. May add the odd pic of them from time to time if they don't find a new home.. but the focus is obviously the Fast Buds on this thread ;)

Nice to see your grow. Wishing you well with it.  I am also running a couple of autos on a SE facing balcony in the South West UK, and it's my first auto outdoor, so this information is useful. I'm growing a fast buds GSC and an auto mazar (can't remember the breeder). I tried to LST the mazar and snapped her 2" from the base, but she's bounced back strong, and is now around 1' tall with 2 main stems. 

I think my pots are around 10L and terracotta, as that's what I had. They are looking great, and the GSC is about 2 weeks into flowering and about 4' tall

Cheers mate - wishing you the best of luck also... Are you doing a diary? It may help you to gain some useful info, it is kind of the aim of doing this one tbh... I am happy the information is of some use but please take everything lightly if you are following along.. I am a complete rookie with auto flowers, it is only my second run despite growing these plants nearly a decade lol there will be much better info out there for sure mate though for autos ;)

Day 29 from seed

Quick update - decided to tie them down to a stick after reading a couple of auto diaries on here and seeing training being highly effective - rather than letting them go like Christmas trees like I normally do! Nice over cast day too so giving them a break after some intense rays.. Last feed was 1ml fish mix, 1ml bloom, 0.5ml silicon and a bit of epsom salts:

No diary unfortunately, I wasn't really prepared, but I might snap a few pics. Don't worry, I'll follow my instinct on this grow. So far, so good, but the UK weather has taken a turn for the worst, just when she's started flowering, so will see what happens

Day 35 from seed

Things moving along nicely, weather has been a bit cooler this week, but it has made finishing my indoor run much easier so I am not complaining! Same feed as last time, feeding every 3/4 days:

Blackberry is the runt at around 70cm, she was deformed as a seedling and starting flowering really early, so was to be expected I guess? Fuck nos lol

I am just about to start a proper auto run with Dinafem seeds at a couple of locations and several strains, check it out here ;)

 




Will update these 3 again a week. Cheers

Blackberry
Such a runt compared to the other two. As I say, bad seed I think.. Heard Fastbuds are hit or miss though.

Budding up nicely all the same though:
