The Birds Are Singing The Sun Is Shining..... .... No Need To Be S.A.D. !!

I figure that the compost will have a nice active micro herd from all the good stuff the Creme Caramels got (and the fact that i can begin right away rather than waiting for compost to be delivered can't be taken for granted). So i removed the CC's from the pots and removed the larger plant mass BUT decided to leave the majority of the dislodged rootmass in the compost (because again i remember reading maybe OT again?? saying that the minerals in the roots would be available to the plants easier (chelated i think was the word.... Not so sure on the spelling mind ).
Also added Fytocell to the mix (till it felt "nice" ) and added some fresh coir/wormcast compost to replace some of the Nitrogen and a pinch of Rock Dust for good measure. On to the S.A.D. AUTO's:
New version of our S.A.D. (Sweet Afghani Delicious S1) autoflowering S-1. Result of crossing our best strains autoflowering with SAD S-1. Quality Auto above, with dense buds and copious resin production, intense and sweet aroma musky, fast flowering, strong effect and great hybrid vigor. The r-evolution of autoflowering reached the end of flowering these plants reach the same resinous and desirable than non-sisters autoflowering.
CBD: 1,4% CBN: 0,4%
Yeild indoor: 400-500gr/m2
Yeild Outdoor: 40-100gr/planta
Flowering outdoor: 5 weeks
Harvest Interior / Exterior: 8 weeks from germination

Nice that you are reusing your compost! are you letting the new mixture settle for while or do you use it straight up?
The sound of them SAD autos isn't bad at all - wish you luck!

As it stands at Day 7 i have 3 x S.A.D. AUTO's and 1 x Creme Caramel AUTO's (???).... What you say where is the 4th S.A.D.??? Well it went something like this :
4 S.A.D. AUTO's went into the "soaking jar" the next morning they all come out and went into the 4"ers. The next day 1 and 2 were visible (and with a bit of help removing the shells were fine). The next morning 3 and 4 were visible HOWEVER 3 had fallen over and couldn't seem to shed it's shell which it did with a bit of help BUT never managed to right itself or open it's first set of leaves! number 4 managed to shed it's shell (just!) but remained small and yellow and never did much but open slightly then er... stop!
So S.A.D. 3 and 4 were "offed" and the 5th "spare" S.A.D. was started BUT this only left 3 still so the "spare" CC AUTO was "press ganged" into service.
This leaves me with:

If you grow Organically think about this:
When you water from the tap you are effectively tipping small amounts of CHLORINE! into your compost (not good for the microherd at all!) bought it when i was in veg with my Kandy Kush and could see the benefits straight away!

Day 19 now 1 and 2 are now in the 9"er's (yesterday) 3 and 4 are a few days behind (but CATCHING number 2!!) when 2 got repotted into the 6"er the rootball took some "punishment" (slightly to dry and it crumbled away in my hand as i went to place into the 6" pot ) not all of it mind you but "enough" to set it back and indeed 3 and 4 are chasing it's ass down now and will be "all over it" soon.
Still all the others are 100% and are def benefiting from re using the compost no N def (*whisper* yet ) or any other lack of nute/mineral/thing(!) .
Here are the pix Sweet fans!!
*Top left to right 1 and 2
Bottom left to right 4 and 3 note how big 3 and 4 are compared to number 2!!!! . They had at least a 2 to 3 days head start.

The girls are doing great though (so much so i lifted #1's pot and looked at the drain hole) to see if i could spot roots.... Only to recoil in shock as a MONSTER root was poking out (thought it was a worm/maggot... NO JOKE!! ) Will try to sort some other way to snap pics but i refuse to use that crap again!!
