Exactly what hell said last interaction we had. Just messing with dimmer. Has 10 notches so.
I will be starting my new journal tonight or tomorrow also. I would talk to the auto experts people who grow them all the time for questions about training with them because autos are DEFINITELY way more touchy than photos but yes you can apply same training techniques you just have to be more careful with autos and what stage there at. @GreenSnek @Not2SureYet grow autos. Photos are more forgiving.
Ive watched bill ward a ton with his auto training. I feel pretty good about it.
I guess I got the driver that does that, I think that means isn’t a mean well? Something like that
Not entirely sure TBH.
Just powered her up for first time. Yes, the first notch is nothing, so im liking the chart here. At least till I get a meter. You still haven’t made a suggestion on meter. Tell you what, that lamp, turned up, is bright!! For now, till I get the glasses, wearing sunglasses and not looking directly at it. Should be moving into tent tonight!!
Yeah bill ward is pretty good he grows some impressive plants himself with Mars hydros too
The kill a watt is tried and true.
Now how does that integrate with the timer?
For my set up I have a 10 gauge wire plugged into the watt meter.
From here I have extensions from the watt meter out. Where everything else plugs in.
I like to measure watts in totality. However if you are ONLY using it for the light, plug the timer directly into the meter.
Playing electrician/cable guy at the moment. Routing, organizing, and securing.
I’m in the process of reconfiguring my grow area. But you can see how I have mine for the time being…
20amp circuit-10 gauge cord to watt meter- out to 3 power strips; 48”, and 2 4”x4”- the longer strip is where I also have individual timers, and plenty of plug ins for fans, and things I may add on.
There are more than a few good auto growers in here. I always forget just who when I try and think of who. I know @Nicky @GreenJewels and @Capt.Cola @MattyBear @Myfriendis410 come to m mind fast. There are a lot I am over looking too. They will come to me once I hit post
Thanks for the tag bro. I’m trying to get these autos figured out lol. I read up a little bit and saw sour diesel as a plant? Also noticed a few clean electrical set ups. 10 gauge is some serious wire! I’ll try and get a little more caught up.
So to everyone who got tagged, @pr is looking for the best method for running an auto and photo side by side in the same run. Any tips tricks?
Will start journal tonight/tomorrow and let all know what’s happening! Thanks for your time today. Heres a preview of journal, 24 hrs germ mk photos. Mango kush.
I would start the auto first. So it gets a little more light. I have ran autos on a 12/12 from the start and the autos still did well. Those look to be off to a nice start
Guess too late now. Taking SD auto bean from water cup to germ cup this evening. Obviously trying to make things difficult i guess! Im new so…also, my bud from that hermie is surprisingly good. Fluffy, but good. That plant had an awful grow environment till the last, 2 months? Learned a lot though.
It will work out. I was shown that my first real grow. I was constantly changing the light schedule. Water and nutes. opening the door during the night hours for pictures and to show a few friends lol And they still finished nice.
