Greenhouse Autos advice
Posted 01 April 2012 - 12:33 PM
Looking for a bit of advice. Starting a couple of autos in a greenhouse. Using JAB with JI with some vermiculite to start them off. The preference seems to be perlite on here, but already have the vermiculite and it does the same thing, doesnt it?
Dont plan on feeding them anything but water initially. When and what would be the choice of feed? Or will the JAB suffice?
Strain is Afghan Kush Ryder. Seemed to be the most hardy, stealthy plant for a low level NW UK grow. Mate of mine is starting the purple cheese auto at the same time. Going to use the same set up.
Will try and keep a diary on here for your enjoyment and further advice if necessary.
Thanks in advance.

I've had autos and regs out for 2 weeks and they love it, albeit in a polytunnel and within that a smaller feleece area if temps drop below 0
Get them outside on sunny times, but be prepared to bring them in at anytime. Windowsill growing will result in very small plants, so get a light, even if it's some 20w cfls 1" above them. Better than the light well get the next couple weeks on bad days.

I also got 2 more types after I put my originals in to germ. 2/3 have been successful and are probably about 4 weeks old. I moved them outside 2 weeks ago. Light has been pretty poor, lots of cloud and rain and Ive put them under a flourescent for a couple of hours each day to help them along.

I also didnt note which was which properly and think Ive muddled them up. Seems to be a similarity to between the 2 pairs. So once it gets bit further along, we should know
Both are about 4in tall and all seems to be in order. I will get some pics up.
No nutes yet and not seen any sign of flowering. Still in relatively small pots, no sign of any roots protruding. Due to the stealth element, I'll have to keep them in similar size pots to my tomatoes that are in there also, for now. Forgot to put window cleaners in to the equation, round the back of the house. Still well concealed, in amongst the other stuff, so not too concerned. This is very much a low level, simplified grow. I'm not expecting a great deal, but hope to pleasantly surprised.
