I’m going to post every week and ask questions along the way. This may help ppl and me as we go. So far we are now at day 3 I have 2 lady’s waiting to pop up to see me! They are under a t5 light that is on waiting for them they are now in biodegradable planters warm and moist. Ph is 5.5 temp is about 80. Fingers crossed all goes well and I see them In the next day or two. I also named the girls Betty and wilma! any help and info on this will. E appreciated. This is my first auto grow.
I also grow this strain(ak47 auto) and just harvest(after 120 long days ) 85% of her! I’m very proud of her
Them lady’s look very nice. Hopefully mine look the same.
I have a question did you trim them and when did you start your nuts and when did you flush?
I only flush her once, I feed her when the first 2 leaves ar dead. I fimm her many times(it’s not recommended to do this to autoflowering strains) and that I have 20 tops.
the 80 temps are good, but what are the biodegradable planters? What do those planters contain for soil / medium?
How about a pic of what you are doing. New sprouts really just need their leaves sprayed and a dome over them to keep the humidity above 60%
Generally you’s want to use 5.8 ph for soiless mediums and 6.5 ph for soil!
I grew AK47 Autos last spring and they tend to need a little cal-mag during flowering. Just once at the beginning of flowering and at the beginning of the 5th week of flowering and that will keep them happy!
Well bob31 I’m not exactly sure what the planters are made of I would assume a cardboard of some sort I will transplant them when it is time without the pots and it is regular soil the pH is between 5 and 6 and the humidity is high they are in the basement In a good location for moisture Betty just sprung up today I’m happy. Still waiting for wilma though. I use fox farm big bloom while in veg and a nut called big bloom doing flowering. I’m new to this but thanks for your help
Was wondering how much did you yeald from a plant? And how was the smoke? I’m excited to see how this all turns out. This is my first time with ilgm seeds.
If you sprout them in a 3 gallon pot and you get the pH where it needs to be based on the type of soil you should do fine! An ounce or more easy. But the deal with auto’s is that they start flowering after about a month from sprout, so you don’t have a lot of time for them to get big unless you do everything right!
My last two autos averaged about a half ounce dry and cured but I made a few mistakes!
You need to find out what soil is in those and match the pH of you water to that.
Time to get domes on them for a few days. Spray the leaves or the inside of the dome with the proper pH water and that will also keep the RH nice and high for them.
no worries. We’ve all had to learn this stuff too. It’s easy enough! @Smokesalot
Have you and toker already talked about the type of soil you are using and setting the pH to that? If so, no worries but if you haven’t done that then please tell us what soil you are using!
@bob31 it’s just standard potting soil I should get some better soil I’m fighting a ph8 with my plant as we speak
There are several different types of potting soils. One requires 5.8 pH and the other required 6.5 pH. If you match the wrong pH to the soil it can cause a great deal of issues!
They look very wet. I’d let them dry out, alot.
She does look great! Very nice!
