All looking good in there, I've found keeping humidity high in the early stages when they're not transpiring much water can be tricky but it sounds like you've got on top of it nicely. In my experience there's nothing wrong with autos when they work, it just seems there's a lot of unreliable strains out there. From what I've sen you should hopefully be happy with the Sweet seeds though. I've just ordered some fast buds and will be covering them in my diary, I'll definitely be lurking around here to see how yours get on
With reagrds to keeping the RH up.. my work is freelance so I have my alarm set to go off every 2 hours so I can go spray em and turn them all 90 degrees to the right
Tedious, I know...but I find trying to maintain an optimum environment, with only an ice cream tub full of water, a fan and 99p B&Q foliar feeder a good challenge
I know what you mean though, I went out today for a few hours and when I got back RH was down to 33%
lowest it gets when I'm hanging around all day is about 50%.
Yeah I agree, strain reliability - or a lack of it, is the problem. Plenty of choice out there, but not one strain (or breeder) screams out at me to purchase it for one reason or another (until the sweet seeds strains) and almost every strain seems to have someone online saying how shit it is; in comparison to standard flowering strains, in which there are probably 10 or 20 dead cert strains to grow for a certain outcome; yield, quality, speed etc. Hope fully the AF scene in still in its infancy.
Not much to report. They're gettin bigger..
The y seem to be yumming down the humic acid... just trying to not overdo it. Might stick em under the HPS on sunday too.
