Good morning! I have a thread for this plant over in the Seedling area but somehow I think I may need a new one.
Strain: LSD Autoflower ILGM, sprouted 11/8/21
Age: 24 days today
Medium: Soil/coco mix - using A Pot for Pot
Size: 5 gallon
Light: Marshydro TS 1000, 150 W
Time: 20/4, DLI at 45 today
Type: Indoor grow, Tent, 2x2x4.5
Temps: 75 - 77 day, 68 - 70 night
Humidity: 45% day - running a humidifier during light hours - 30-35% night (4 hours)
Nutes: None yet - part of the question
Ventilation: Yes - 4 inch fan in, 6 inch filter out.
pH of water: 6.5 - had her last drink transplanting day, 1/2 gal on 11/26 - moisture/weight checked daily
This is Lucy. She is my second seed after a spectacular failure of seed #1 due to gross incompetence on my part.
There is not a lot of information on this strain on the site, I know the seeds are trickier than expected after all my fumbling around.
So, on day 16 I saw a “preflower” on the third node. I was happy because I saw she is a girl. Since then, she was transplanted into her full sized pot, got a bit mad for a day but is growing pretty well since then. She has grown 3 inches in 8 days. She has also flowered all over herself, leading me to think that she decided to skip the veg phase. (She’s 7.5 inches tall today!)
Questions. Given that I am using A Pot for Pot, should I NOT give her her flowering nutes? I have Techniflora’s Recipe for Success, and I was thinking of using 1/4 strength nutes to help her along, seeing as how young she really is.
Also, anyone have any idea how big she could get? (Info from elsewhere seems to indicate that she will grow 4 - 6 weeks in flower)
Lucy is my “test grow”, first time, and I wanted to grow her as simply as possible, with an eye toward training and topping my next sprout - or sprouts. Having 3 seeds left makes me think I may need to plant them together - I am getting a 3x3x6 tent for Xmas, and I already received my cheapo 300W LED light to go with it. (Lucy is chilling with the TS1000.)
Opinions? Advice? I wasn’t expecting a bonsai pot plant, I was afraid my tent was too short! I’m happy with whatever results, but is there anything I can do to help her along?
Many thanks for reviewing my lengthy post, and any help you can give is greatly appreciated.
