First grow with autos

43 posts in this topic

Cheap eBay 80 x 80 x 160 tent arrived today so we upgraded from the giant cardboard box which has faired me so well up to now, fan and filter in so should be able to control the temps and humidity a bit easier now all in all ticking along nicely. Passive intake from the house extraction into the loft space around tent.

 

feeding every 2/3 days depending on pot weight and soil dryness. 2.5ltrs each 1ml grow 1ml bloom 1ml micro got a few yellow leaves at the bottom  but they seem to like it plenty of new growth and the one that snapped is stretching like I can’t beleive

Nice recovery ! 
 

I wouldn’t defoliate those ladies as they are right now. Maybe later in flower you could remove the lower leaves but if one of them is still recovering I would leave it as it is. Just my 2c.

 

Good luck with the grow :yep:

I grow autos indoors using LST. I put my felt pots into an old washing up bowl with small holes drilled all around the rim. Then I use the green wire stuff to tie the branches down. That way, when I pick up the plant to move it or to water it, the felt pot isn't distorted at all, which can pull on your ties and cause damage.

Looks like you are learning fast as you go, facing all the challenges head on. You are bound to succeed.

 

I would concur that you should avoid cutting off any healthy leaves on an auto, especially when they are young. Removing them slows up your growth. Just tuck them out of the way so that your bud sites can see the light.

Tape up the break on your plant. It will probably survive. They can do amazing things. If you lose it don't despair, just look after the rest of the plant.

 

Just remember the three rules - No smell, no sell, no tell. Don't trust anyone to keep their mouth shut - growing dope is a great conversation piece for people who don't have anything to lose.

Cheers pal yea I’m learning and trying to adapt quickly, the stem on the plant is sound now I tapped it up straight away and it’s just. Arrived on growing.... I’ll leave the defoliation alone then. I have been tucking leaves but it’s less and less necessary as they stretch and the buds are exposed more.

That's right the branches will soon be out and beyond the big fan leaves. Any old, crappy, yellow leaves from low down are ok to take off.

Look out that your lights don't get too close or burn your buds as the plants get bigger and more into flower. Any sign of curling, drying etc then blame your lights.

Hi guys 48days above soil now environment seems consistent and fine but I think I’ve overdone the feed.  Uped the neuts to 1ml/Lbloom 1ml/L micro 0.5ml/L grow 2.5lts water each wet dry cycle and I seem to have some burn. 
 

I have let dry then fed 1.5lts plain water prob due again tomorrow but I’m unsure how to proceed any advice?

Overall I’m quite happy so far considering I’ve never grown a thing can’t wait to get over the finish line now want to try my creation lollarge.CD039452-5DC2-40FA-834A-E89E48E70458.jpeg

Brown spots is light are too bright. Turn them down by a quarter. Plants get more susceptible to light burn as they flower.

Keep going - up your feed just a little bit. They look great just don't burn them!

They have now done all of their veg growth and they've grown a lot of flowers, so they will probably need a bit less water now. Let them dry out a fair bit before watering and then give them 'not quite enough', if you know what I mean. Keep them on the dryish side so that they have to work a little bit for their dinner!

Those big yellow leaves can come off, they aren't doing much when they get in that state. Don't worry about the odd yellow leaf, it's normal, plus in a few weeks she will start thinking it's autumn and start changing colour anyway.

Maybe think about starting another auto?
