First time with autos

99 posts in this topic

Hello one and all - my gnomes and I are back in blighty after ten years working away...I was in this site in those days, grew ScroG in a DR80 and a DR240 tent with HPS. 

A year after returning to U.K., I finally got my ass in to gear, bought the required and kitted out the garage.

 

oh, I also partitioned  the garage, built the insulated grow room and put in the tent 

tent - bloom room 1m x 1m x2
Rhino filter 
6” RVK Systemair extractor 
Ram humidifier 
Radiator
Wilma four pot large 
Air stones 
Kroptek HiKrop 360w full spectrum LED 
Canna coco pro and pebbles 65/35
Airpro heat and humidity control 
1 x 20 lt airpot for a try 
Two regular 18lt Wilma pots with many holes
PH target range will be 5.8 to 6

EC will start at 1 and I will push it up during veg then do what the ladies tell me.

rH will start at 60% and be reduced until flower at 30/35%
Heat will remain in the range of 22 to 26z 

Nutes- all new to me, to be fair in the years I grew I never had a favorite - I always found environment and genetics to be the biggest factor for yield, taste, bud density, quality etc... 

nutes are
Growth technology grow and bloom a&b 
Cal mag 
Grow genius monosilic 
Tribus original 
Canna Rhizotonic 
Remo velokelp for folior 
Not decided on bloom additives yet

seeds this time will be Dutch passion autos
Mazar
Glueberry og
Critical orange punch 

it won’t be a real diary as I am far too busy with home and work with lockdown but will keep you all updated.

started with 180 light and got bored so threw in the other half 

very first time with autos - many moons ago I only ran Fem photos and generally ran single plant behemoth scrogs


Also first time with LED lights 

a lot has moved on in my time in non-weed tolerating countries so I am expecting between grows I will update my toys a fair bit. Have my eyes on the systemar EC in-line silenced extractor with GAS EC controller 

if I am busy I am sure my gnomes will step in and post a few pics to try to keep things alive 

take care
Z

Seems like you are all set up.

 

For what it's worth, I'm running an auto grow over winter with a  critical orange punch which came as a freebie....

 

Pretty rubbish so far, especially compared to the night queen's I'm also running.

I'm running 2 daiquiri lime, 2 night queen and the cop, all from dp in same tent.

 

Both daiquiri are massive (they are XL) and one is a great plant, the other meh. Both need at least 6 more weeks.

 

One nq is almost ready after 7 weeks (all. seeds broke around 22nd December). It has another week and is a great little squat plant, v stinky. So compact Ive had to move it to a smaller tent as it was being excessively shaded. The other is much bigger and is 2 weeks behind.

 

The cop is supposed to be XL but is quite squat so is now a little shaded. It's quite advanced but the buds are v leafy, not much smell.etc.

 

To summarise, I will defo do more night queen and unless daiquiri and cop really impress with the smoke then I will.not bother again.

Your experience may vary massively and I wish you luck.....

Hey hey - that’s interesting, I actually started with a paid COP that did not sprout so pooped the COP freebie and it came up very quickly. 
 

I have heard a lot of good things about the NQ but I have yet to try it. 
 

do you have a diary I can follow? 

 

take care

No diary I'm afraid. I'm impressed with the nq so far.

And my experience with cop will probably be completely different to yours so I wouldn't give it a second thought.

I only do autos over winter keeping mums/clones waiting for warmer weather. I much prefer regs but the autos are so much better these days.

Good luck....

Good day one and all - I do hope you are yours are all well! 
firstly, I must say I have no idea why my writing is all now centered, the magical world of computers eh..!

 

right then on to day CYZ, I really have no idea how long they have been going. Couple of weeks for the Mazar and maybe an additional 10/15 days in the other two - but the older two were abused as children in cold and rubbish conditions as I built the grow room. 
 

currently room temps hovering between 22 and 24. RH hovering around 50%.

EC of 1.2 being made up of Silica, grow feed, tribus and taking it up to the 1.2 with CalMag. Seems ok for all except the stimulus COP.

 

mazar the baby is coming along nicely au-natural, the GBOG has finally starting moving and is being tied down with plenty of new sites coming through now. The COP has plenty of sites etc... it just looks all wrong 

 

pics below from today after foliar feed with Velokelp

Good evening one and all - I return on this rather soggy evening to show you the build of the room. Oddly enough the build did happen before the other pictures but my gnomes were far to high to remember where the photos were lol

 

anyway - garage build, treated timber, insulation, plasterboard and a 6 socket set for all my electricity requirements. Put the door in, with the fan at full belt you can make out a slight whizz if air, otherwise it provides a nice location for the tent to fit, for me to work - and to stabilize the unstable nature of temps and humidity in a garage.
