Arborholic's 2nd grow- ILGM Blueberry Autos in DWC hydro 2-10-21

I have 5 Blueberry Auto seeds germinating on paper towels. They took a 24 hr soak in H202 and water soln 3 days ago, and now are living on a paper towel, on a plate, covered with a damp paper towel, covered with a cake pan and a dish towel. I’ve been waiting 3 weeks to finally pop some more seeds.


I chose autos because they can live in the same room as my 1st grow of bag seeds, which are in week 0-4 of flower, on 12/12 LED lights. I chose Blueberry because they may smell delicious, look colorful, and may help with sleep. And at the rate things are going, they may finish before my first grow.

:question: Any comments on my choice of seeds and my expectations?

2 seeds popped, 2 small dark covered tails emerging

35% humidity
The plan is to put them in GH Rapid Rooters in an AeroGarden till they are ready for the big leagues.
:question:I’ve never used an AeroGarden- any pointers?

Dropped the cup on the floor- happy for the rubber band and plastic keeping them in the cup since the only way I would be able to find them is stuck in my bare feet. They sank to the bottom of the cup and didn’t float back up, so I placed them on the paper towel.

ILGM Blueberry Auto seeds in RO/H2O2 about 60/30 into doubled solo cup, covered with plastic wrap, a rubber band and covered with a towel.

Thanks brother for the tag. I’ll be following along. Don’t know anything about the aeroponics but I’m always willing to learn.
Good luck!

Here’s a little better pic of the AeroGarden. Do you do hydro or use Rapid Rooters, Spy? Thanks for the encouragement!

Thanks Peach! I added the rest of the proposed grow specs so let me know if you see something missing or that I should be preparing for. I’ve never grown autos before. Do you think it can be done in the same room as the flowering plants light schedule wise? It sounds like some people leave their lights on 24/7 to veg out their autos more. If they start at 12/12 light schedule, will they just be smaller?

I’ve wondered about them too Watt-Sun. A buddy found one at a pawn shop and brought it over, the same day as he saw the 4 ft plants for the first time. We laughed at how small it looked compared to the plants- and he almost took the thing back. Now I’m stoked to try it out!

I don’t do autos either but guess I probably could if I had any. All my seeds are photos.

I have a diy rdwc. Two 20 gal totes to grow in and a 13 gal res. But in this grow, only one made it so I’m growing one sour diesel.
