FIRST OUTDOOR GROW (seeking advice)

39 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Okay, so I popped this seed (SENSEI SKUNK AUTO) last week into the final potting plant (a big black tub).

 

After a week of cloud, rain and wind with a touch of sun I returned to see it sprouted. 

 

Let me know if there’s anything obviously wrong with the setup. First time grower, all advice is welcome. :)

 

Thanks in advance y’all best of luck with yo crops!

You can make a small greenhouse for your baby girl in case she gets cold at night with a cut off upturned up cycled plastic bottle.

Vent holes don't hurt if it's getting hot in the day.

Tah Dah single use just became multiple use. See how green I am?

 

You might not need it. Depends on your micro climate.

Hope it goes well for ya.

I bought 3 seeds, 1 never cracked and the other is planted straight in the ground on another sight. Was wondering when I should start with fert and how I should arrange further defences... What autos are you growing?

Ooooh interesting thought, would I just chuck the plastic bottle over the top of the seedling, on top of the soil? Would work as a good defence against critters too... 

 

Smart idea, we all gotta work to save this planet!

Yup chuck it on top of the soil.

bear in mind it will also up the plants environmental relative humidity.

 

Consult the breeders advice especially in soil ref; nutes.

Not all autos take well to feeding and are some What prone to being over fed.

 

I was being ironic. No offence.

I'm not as green as I should be, I'm just a tight wad.

 

Someone who knows what they're on about will tell you how to go on, Im a novice auto grower with a previous poor attempt but I have high hopes for future grows. Thanks to @Dinafem-Mark for Dinafem 2019 outdoor grow comp.

Appriciated my guy, shall stick to water for the time being. 

 

Did order see the biobizz outdoor grow pack (fish mix bloom etc) so will probably start with very very minimal amounts then work my way up i guess?! 

 

Copper tape in the post too, will update the thread when I’ve made some changes. 

 

Love that this forum exists and people can exchange knowledge!

They’ll be a few weeks before they need feeding and autos can be sensitive so you’ll have to watch her to see how she’s reacting to her environment. 

 

Although the bottle cloche is a good idea it’s not necessary in this weather currently. Your biggest problem will be slugs for next few weeks. Pellets round pot will do you well.

Okay cool, shall prepare the battlements!!

Anywhere particularly good for pellets?

 

Also would a salt ring work?

Wire wool ring around the base might help or sand. NOT salt. Salt will leach into the soil and do more harm than good.

 

Pellets are ok but remember theyre going to attract slugs to where you put them. So maybe put them somewhere where you dont want the slugs to be. I dont like using them. prefering a more natural approach.

 

Have you seen slug sign? Is the environment ripe for slugs?

Have you thought about companion planting?

Patience is your friend. Try not to over fuss. It's hard I know.  :smokin:

I have not yet seen slugs/signs of them but it is a wild area, full of all manner of plants.

 

I therefore suspect that there are slugs, as there are plenty of other insects around!! 

 

Will go up there today with sand and search for slugs.

They will be hiding in a wet dark place in the day.

 

Good luck @SouthCoastFarmer

Chucked down a bunch of sand, hopefully it keeps the slugs away for a while.
