First auto grow mixed tent

16 posts in this topic

Hi,

I thought I would give some autos a go as I’ve only done 1 hydro grow before.

This is my first attempt at a grow by myself with some good input from a friend who’s grew for years. So thought I’d put it on here in case it helps anyone or I can look back upon and see if any things could or can be changed. Even any pointers would be great as this is basically my first real grow.

First off I have 3x Stardawg autos (fast buds) and 1 Diesel Berry (auto seeds) in my tent.


Everything I have in tent as follows:

1.2x1.2x2m Buddha room tent

600w HPS bulb (18” above plants)

6” Rhino thermostat fan & carbon filter (long)

Air cooled reflector

6” ducting air intake

4x5L air pots (final pots as autos)

Plant magic organic soil

Plant magic OT grow (maybe using but not sure)

Plant magic OT bloom (will be using later)

Dehumidifier

Light schedule 18-6 (first week)

Light schedule 20-4 (rest of grow)
 

 
That’s all equipment I have in the tent. But for first timer hopefully I’ve not missed anything out.

 

First day planted the seeds that cracked open that wanted to sprout. Within a day all 4 where up and out of the soil. Temps were a bit mad first 3 days tho as my 4” fan wouldn’t cut it in the tent so bought the rhino 6” thermostat fan and carbon filter. Daytime temps where 30-32C and night time temps were 24-26C for 3 days. Humidity has never really been a problem that’s always been in between 50-60%. I changed the 4” fan for intake but was doing overtime in my bedroom so decided to change it to a 6” ducting as my intake but for it covered so nothing gets sucked through when taking air. Had to do this for the negative pressure the fan was causing as it nearly sucked my tent into pieces haha. 
Day 4 I managed to get the rhino fan installed and temps are now running a nice 24-26C lights on and 20-22C lights off. Humidity has been between 50-60% as humidifier doing its job.

Watered at the end of day 2 all 4 plants got 220ml water. Day 5 they got another 200ml water. Day 8 (today) gave them 400ml water and leaving them for 3 days or depending on the dryness of soil. 
All plants looking really well 1 of the stardawg plants maybe taking a sativa side as it’s a little taller than the rest. Other 2 stardawg look really good taking an indica look so far. The diesel berry had a slight deformed look first 2 leaves but second set looked well so not to worries about that now. That’s taking an indica look also.


 

I’ll update as my babies grow and any feedback will be welcomed. Also can’t seem to upload pics from my iPhone or I would share the progress with you guys
 

Happy growing guys n gals

Quick update.

Plants doing really well in vegging stage As 2 weeks old today.

Plants looked a bit thirsty on day 13. Gave all 4 plants 1l of water with 1ml of OT grow nutrients on day 13 to give them a little pick up. Made sure to get some run off at bottom of plant.

Going to start the wet/dry cycle as plants looking like they want to grow and veg every hour lol 

 

Tent temps have been between 24-26C for daytime and 20-22C nighttime. Humidity is between 55-60% hoping when flowering will drop it back down to 50%.

Moved on to 20/4 on/off cycle for lights as well. 3 stardawg looking really bushy and diesel berry looking as good as the others as well.

 

I’ll keep it updated as the quads grow and flourish more.

 

Peace out ✌️

These are my babies at day 15. One plant has had a slight heat stress to some leaves. Fixed that tho with buying my oscillating fan to help the air get around the tent. One also looked a bit droopy but expected that from more than one as I gave a run off feed to them to start wet/dry cycle. 
All plants doing really well today and growing bigger by the day. Can’t wait for the buds to start forming as this will be my first real chance to see the end processes of a grow.

Temps have been awesome for me 24-26C with lights on and 20-22C lights off. Humidity has always been around 50-60% (never really drops below 56% as the humidifier does it’s job).

I will post more photos next few days and keep updated on the progress. I hope this will either help someone out or be used as a guideline for any future grows ill be doing. 
 

Any questions or criticism will be welcomed

 

Happy growing guys n gals ✌️

@mister phlegm hi thanks man, been a good few weeks for me as first on my own. 
My friend has helped me lots with his knowledge and keeps telling me I’m doing great as I’m a worrier haha.

Its good to hear some good feed back tho. I’ll keep this post updated with every detail and we can all see the end product if it’s worth changing anything or even if it helps someone follow with some guidelines. 
 

Thanks again for the positive feedback bro ✌️

I’m just about to start my first Auto grow, straight into 3 gal air pots, and I am having trouble deciding what soil to use.

I don’t want to pot up on my first attempt and I was thinking I could use something like Biobiz light mix, or an equivalent all the way through, and start adding nutes according to the Canna feeding schedule, (half the recommended dose to start) after about week 2.

I noticed you are using Plant Magic and are also planting straight into final air pots, so I am very interested to know how your girls are doing?

Did you have to add any pearlite, or anything to the soil?

@Red One hi bro, I’ve went and used plant magic organic soil so haven’t added anything to it as it should last my babies 3-4 weeks usually.

Tho last feed I gave 1ml plant magic OT grow and plants seemed to like it. All doing really well atm and seem to be growing by the hour lol 

Everything organic here bro so just went as is. My friend who has helped me lots said I could have used a root stimulant I think. But can’t remember the name but I know it’s a fungi I think haha. It grows roots along with your plants and helps feed the roots. 
First grow myself so didn’t want to complicate it to much.

Hope this helps a bit for you to decide bro 

 

Also I read autos should go into final pots as stressing them to much can do damage that’s why I’ve done final pots straight away. Only done 5l pots tho for me as I want to see the root ball after this and see if I should have went for bigger pots

Another little update on my babies :) 

Day 18 I had to give plants another feed. All plants got another wet cycle started, gave them roughly 2l water + 1ml OT grow per 1l.

plants have started bud sights as well already lol didn’t expect this as fast with my autos. 
Temperatures have still been around 24-26C day time and 20-22 night time. Humidity has been 55-60% 

Light has been roughly 18 inches away at all times as well.

I’ll upload some more pics soon and share with you guys. 
 

Happy growing peeps ✌️

Day 19 and plants doing really well. Bud spots are starting to form already and smelling really good just now for this early stage. Going with that I’m hoping these babies are gonna blossom into really nice smelling and big lol 

Maybe a slight to much N in the plants but will sort that out next feed when starting the bloom. 
But all in all for my first grow I’d hope I’m doing something right to have them doing what they’re doing. Must love the environment as well to start buds this early. Maybe not tho as I’ve asked my friend he said it can happen with autos as they mutant plants compared to the normal photo plants. 
 

Hope you guys enjoy the pics so far ;) 


Oh and that’s only 4 plants with 3 different views of them :)

Thanks bro, they’re looking much better today as that was when they had their feed. But glad u also like them bro :) 

I don’t actually haha that’s something I’ll do bro when I’m back in but light is hard to catch a good photo as I use 600w HPS so ballast is flickering the light to much for good pics. I’ll upload on soon bro but tent only 1.2x1.2 large.799CBD55-178B-4EA5-B947-796B8B032653.jpeg

 

That is the top of the tent but photo is side on for some reason lol under the right side of ducting is my monkey fan and humidifier is in left bottom corner to keep humidity perfect
