Autos. first grow diary
Posted 03 February 2012 - 03:38 PM
my plan is to update bi-daily in veg and every 4-5 days in flowering
2x 'Sweet seeds' Fast bud #2
2x 'Swees seeds' cream caramel auto
1x 'Sweet seeds' black jack auto
This is my kit...
Grow Tent. 120cm x 120cm x 200cm
400w Ballast with sunmaster dual spectrum HPS bulb and shade (for flowering)
250w Envirobulb (CFL) (Blue for vegging)
4" Carbon Filter and fan kit
11L Square pots + trays
PM Bio Silicon
PM oldtimer Bloom
Ph up and down
Watering can, Spray bottle, Measuring Jug and pipettes
To Germinate 5 seeds (the autos) hopefully getting all 5 to germinate. Transfer to .5l pots in a propagator in my walm grow tent (heater on) for around 24-48 then put them under my 250w CFL 24/0 for 1 week, after which I will reduce to 20/4 for around 3 weeksI will then re-pot into the final 11L pots and change the light to my 400w HPS at 18/6 which they'll stay until crop.
Not my first grow, grow number 4, but my first diary. ive been out of the growing scene for 4 years (too long about time i got back too it) maybe a bit rusty so any tips would be helpful
Ok so I read that auto are harder to germinate than photo plants and don't respond to well to paper towel method (Damm, that what I was gonna use) so I done some more reading.. I decided to germinate my seeds in a cup of water, I got 3 glasses of water for my 3 different strains, made sure water was room temp placed my seeds in water then the cups in my dark grow tent, they stayed in their for around 20hours, temp range from 20.2c-25.3c. I then got my seeds out very carefully with a spoon :0 and placed them in pre-wetted pm soil in my home made plant pots, converted coke bottles with holes pierced in bottom and black bags rapped around them. I've placed them in my tent with clingfilm over the top to help humidity. Hopefully will see some heads popping out the soil in next 48 hours

Congrats on getting this far mate and let's hope all seeds show their little heads within 48 hours.
Looks like you have everything under control and alot of what you're using (nutes and beneficials) are what I use and they come highly recommended mate.
You will love the speed of fastbud and the dense buds of the CC's
All the very best mate and just shout if you need anything
