I have a single Afghan Auto-Flowering Feminized from Growers Choice Seeds in one of those Red Plastic cups with plenty of holes for drainage. After germination I planted the seedling in the Red Cup with Miracle Grow, Duh… What can I say I’m a Rookie? I heard here that some people have good results with this medium. However, I don’t plan on keeping my Afghan in the Miracle Grow all the way to harvest. I don’t feel comfortable keeping her in this medium but, for now she seems to be doing pretty good.
My Afghan has been in the cup for about a week and a half. What I’d like to know is, about how long should I leave her in the cup before she’s ready to be put in a bigger planter and since it’s so late in the season I was thinking about using a 3 or 5 gallon planter. Please give me your thoughts on this idea.
Oh, By The Way for now my little lady seems to be doing fine in the Miracle Grow but I wanna get her out of there ASAP. I purchased a 40 lbs. bag of Ocean Forest and plan on boosting it with [Super Soil Organic Concentrate] NATURES-LIVING-SOIL. Do you think the LIVING SOIL is a little too much for the Ocean Forest? Also, I don’t plan on using the whole 40 lbs. of Ocean Forest. If anything I plan on maybe using 20 lbs. of it on my Afghan and see how well I do by season’s end.
I know it’s late in the season and probably can’t expect too much out of this Gal. Yet, I still have high hopes for this girl. Also, just about everywhere on this property is shaded except on the side of the house between the two properties. My girls get an average of about 10 solid hours of sun light per-day. I don’t worry a whole lot about the people next door. They seem pretty cool and haven’t said anything when they see me watering and caring for my girls.
Oh yeah, I also have 6 Bubba Kush plants that I’ve made a shit load of mistakes with. Stupid stuff like over watering, high ph. (Going in and coming out). The ph. is in the upper 8s and can’t get them lower than the 7s. Nutrient lockout has been a problem; Bugs (Gnats and Garbage or House Flies) and I mean a bunch of them!
The Bubba Kush should be way taller but they’re only about 13 or 14 inches tall. I’m all freaking bummed out! But I guess I can chalk it up to education, weed-growing 101.
Next year I plan on doing better that is, if my better half gives the okay to do so. You see, I kinda loose it big time when I find I’ve pulled a boner and done something stupid. So, she’s kinda hesitant about letting me try this again. Women! I know she’s only trying to keep me from blowing a heart valve and it’s probably sending a negative vibe to the plants but sometimes I can’t believe the stupid shit I’ve done.
I’d really like to get a solid handle on getting this Bubba Kush right. I’d like to use it to make a topical for the arthritis in my knees and the neuropathy in my feet and hands. I don’t wanna keep spending on resupplying my Bubba Kush stash.
Anyway, that’s about all for now. I hope to hear from you and hopefully you can help me out with some of my concerns. Thanks in advance. Constipation from The Constipation Think Tank.
