Auto Grow Off, Sativas, Autopots, Nicky & Not2SureYet 🚜

I don’t know how much of a microbe environment one would have with such heavy salt based nutrients in coco, I mean I’m using the fishshit to but I have yet to see or hear any reason for the sugar /carb load aside the basics that your screenshot captured.
To me that makes me belive it in soil but question its effectiveness in a non soil environment.

@Caveman86 thank you.

I Zap strapped the pannles hanging wires to the roof poles to give the plants an extra inch bypassing the carabiner /rachet.
Plants have already exploded since I thinned them.
I’ll be home for a short amount of time in the 31,1st,2nd so I’ll try and defoilate them after I top up the reservoirs then.

Looking awesome man ! Wouldn’t expect anything less from you :wink: . Haven’t spoke in a while. Hope all is well brotha !

Right! I can’t wait till the stress level cna return to normal lol.
My girls going to specialize, it’s almost a must these days, since she’s already in full school a 8 month specialist degree is well worth the pay raise and the job availability it offers. It’s something I’ve planted in my girlfriends head so much she thinks it’s her idea lol.

Consider it! Because it’s to hard to go back after she leaves, your guys quality of life will improve its well worth the short term stress

I get what your saying I forget your in coco… and I have same questions but alot of myconproducts are powder based and hydro friendly I dunno how fungi and bacteria thrive in strait water but they must be able to and micro biology is the BEST route to break down salts slf 100 is an all enzyme based flush product with the main purpose of dissolving salts and cleaning media build up but not sure how it works in water but every product I’ve purchased says hydro and my hydro store dude tells me fine for soil I dunno but I know how the relationship in soil works . Breaking down organic matter to simple forms easily absorbed by plants but i would assume its same process for coco or hydro

Yet to be determined, thought critical care but she doesn’t want to be in ICU and dead will machines all day long it takes the patient part out of it.
We are gonna open a Botox clinic asap though just to do fillers and make $. Although she wants a job more meaningful in her day to dya long term life. She may do palative not sure got a year and a half to figure it out yet.

I’ve grown a few rounds of autos on 18/6 no issue. My last auto grow was in a room with photos. When i switched the lights to 12/12 the autos started flowering (about a week or two early from my experience). All feminized auto Sour diesel from ILGM but one hermied and right before harvest I had one start to reveg for some reason. Only experience I’ve had flipping the lights on an auto. I’m planning on doing it again so I’m hoping from what everyone says it was a fluke.

Herms are either genetics or due to major issue due to stress.
The light scedule is less important for autos as the daily light interval (DLI), with strong lights one plant can get more in 6hr then another in 20 hours. Ensuring autos get at least a 4hr rest time is ideal.
Important things happen in a dark cycle, how important is it in autos vs photos is unknown. Until that time I would assume going from 18/6 to 12/12 while ensuring the correct DLI would be ideal but that takes alot of light power and is probably not doable in most cases.
That’s why most auto growers run 20/4 due to not strong enough lights and others get away with 18/6.
However understanding DLI is more important than light scedule, although light scedule still plays a important role it’s more so after the fact of understanding DLI.

Aren’t the ruderalis Gene’s of an auto that make it an auto from Russia with a very short time with growable temperatures and the days are almost 24 hours light in the begining of the season it’s only 3 hrs dark …here ya go

Ruderalis comes from the Caucasus IIRC which is a long way from St. Petersburg.

The russian ruderalis genetics were the first discovered and documented. However there have been some canadian ruderalis discovered and some from another place or two. Theres more but im not positive on it… ive been researching ruderalis lately

Had me second guessing I never heard or remembered the city area but i knew it was russia which is pretty far north i dont know Russia specifics I just was googling longest and shortest days in russia and knew it was from russia but was trying to get an extreme case of daylight hour swings to exemplify the shortness of some grow season :sunglasses::v:

Oh I had never heard of that @DefNSmokn that’s cool I love learning new stuff like that … I would definitely think there was a niched weed plant of Canada :blush:
