Backyard 2017 ILGM Grow 5 Flavors Journal

4th annual summertime nwinbackyard grow. Going for 5 flavors this year.
Simple setup using 100% Fox Farm Ocean Forest soil . Last year I used a 82/20 mix of FFOF
5/30 Started to germinate 4 Autos to start ( 2 AK-47 & 2 White Widow)
All 4 sprouted but lost an AK-47 in the first 3 days.

Here are the 3 Autos on June 15

First image is the AK-47 (Auto)

The Next two are the White Widow’s (Auto)

This is my first time growing “Autos” . I do not plan on any cloning or topping with these. Any input on feeding nutes and the timing with these is appreciated.
Coming soon will be 2 Girl Scout Cookie (fem) , 1 Gold Leaf (fem) , 2 Super Silver Haze (fem) . All ILGM seeds.


They look nice, I had trouble with my Ak auto, she is done now but I get a little more growing time in than up your way. It had some root trouble from my rookie transplant if I was to guess. However still did her best, about 16 inch high total and bud tasted sweet.
I also use fox farm ocean forest, and would swear by it to anyone as it has been good to me.
Please let me know how to super silver haze comes out, I buy that in CO when I go there at times, nice zz. I also have multiple flavors going, Autos on second batch which are Pakistan Ryder and 2 x Critical Mass. Larger fems are Moby Dick, Crystal, Trainwreck, and Carmelicious. So far so good in my heat in area, being down by vegas we get hot down here. Even at 120f outside, I’ve got the greenhouse running around 97f, plants seen ok and I would consider this weeks heat our extreme.
Good luck with the grow


@LVMD nice grow

Thank you, it’s getting crowded in the greenhouse. I’ll be able to free up some space soon 1-2 weeks as my autos are about ready. The heat wave took it’s toll a little, but nothing bad, even at 120f outside, greenhouse ran about 99f so my watering and misting below bucket line is working out well.
thx again

Backyard grow dated 8/19/17 . The 3 Autos are at 11 weeks and about ready to harvest. The other 5 (2 GSC, 2 SSH, 1 GL) are now a little over 7 weeks old and still in veg. The little one in the white pot is a new AK-47 Auto about 3 weeks old.

The big tall wispy plant is my 3rd generation “Royal Madre” (not ILGM) that started on its own in last years container and was 6 inches tall when I found it and even though I kind of ignored it when it acted like it was not going to make it , it just keeps growing " like a weed" . I know its probably root bound, but I just keep watering it and it is now in pre-flower stage.


Had to make some room, greenhouse crowded. So I raised it up some to give the girls some room. These pics were at begin of Aug., they are much larger now and budding out now that light has started to decrease.


Been busy in last few weeks. Harvested all 3 autos . So here are a few pics of whats still growing in the backyard as of Sept , 6th
