Beginner needing help with runoff and ph for flowering autoflowers

@Bobbydigital Sorry, I should have been more clear. Definitely curing slowly for the harvest but was wondering if I wanted to sample right now if it would be best to microwave, maybe dry in the oven for a couple hours or should I even dry at all?

You can, it’s not going to give a great representation of the product but will still work. I just dry normally if I take a sample. A small bud will usually take around 4 days.

@BobbyDigital I am going to select a piece of fruit right now. Which one should I select from or will it even matter? I am going to throw it in a small cardboard box. I don’t have my curing tent set up yet. The grow room is in the basement. Concrete floor is 67° and walls are 69° right now.

I usually pick a small lower bud.

Autoflower watering of seedling that went straight to final pot?? 3 gal fabric it will be. Actually my first real grow with proper gear, and yes, going for autos which I have zero experience with. Risky move maybe!! Almost seems safest to have it break soil in the final pot?

Risky as in doing autos as my first grow.

Auto flower watering is same as photos. As seedling just water in a circle around 3” from seedling. If you’re not comfortable with transplanting then starting in final pot will be fine. It can be slow to start off while it builds a root system.

I like to start autos in clear solo cups just so I can see how quickly the plant builds roots. If the plant is a slow root builder, the size of their final pot will be smaller than one that has explosive root growth.

Thanks. No im pretty comfy w transplanting, and may just do as you say so I can moniter roots. Great info. And im wanting to have a training game plan in place since ill have a short window to do it. A couple toppings and lst? Scrooge seems difficult for watering and moving them if needed?

Just make sure to have an opaque solo cup to place the clear one in so the roots aren’t exposed to lights. Then you can just slide off the opaque one to check root status and slide it back on.

My plants are apparently learning gymnastics. I was replacing the filter in the tent and instead of moving the plants this Sasquatch tried to do it without. I have my plants raised so this certain Sasquatch doesn’t have to kill his back when in the tent. I was sloppy and bumped the plant, she fell off the bucket and did a “cartwheel” bouncing off her main colas and landing back right side up. She dumped some of her innards an the ground but not a lot. I straightened out her self supercropped cola and set her back in the tent. I have now went into overdrive getting the curing tent ready. Did I kill her? Should I cut her down now or just wait and see what happens? I will get some photos of trichomes later.

@MeEasy That’s what I get for not paying attention. It seems to have taken the abuse ok. I need to get caught up on your next run? How did the move go?

I do shit like that all the damn time, I’ve lost the feeling in prolly half of my rt leg so I trip over it alot I was clumsy as hell before that so yeah it’s comical some days :sweat_smile:

We’ve got everything moved now so it’s just getting it all unpacked and find where it will live. It’s kinda tough we moved out of a 2200 ft² house with a shop and two car garage into a 1100 ft² house without a garage at all it’s like putting a square peg in a round hole. I moved into town when I was sick with the intention of getting better and going back to work and now I know I’m not going to be able to. I had to downsize again in order to live comfortably, I wasn’t quite ready to retire… it’s all good I’m still here Dr’s told me like 7 years ago I prolly wouldn’t see 50 I’ll be 51 in a couple months… I’m the richest man on the planet

Edit = my grandkids will be here tomorrow to eat grandpa’s BBQ, life don’t get better

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers! You have a really good perception of life and I thank you for that. It is very motivating! Unpacking is the slowest part for me. I think things only get unpacked as I need them, lol. Have a blast with the grandkids and enjoy that bbq. I started taking up bbq during COVID. This was our Christmas dinner. Cheers buddy :beers:

Curing tent almost completely set up. I need to attach the cloud line T6 with temperature and humidity control although based on the photo I just took of conditions of the tent, I may not need it. I have to push the air horizontally 10’ to outside. I hope it can do it. Should I give 48 hours of darkness before I chop?

@MeEasy I hope you and the family had a blessed day. Especially the grandkids! Nothing like Family and good BBQ. I golfed for the first time in over 20 years and broke the neighbors driver on the second hole. The golf club head went farther than my ball. Hit it right on the heel of the club.

Curing tent is all ready to go! Just before the rain hit, I installed the outside vent cover. I’m guessing when I get some occupants inside the tent then the humidity will climb.

3 of the girls got put into darkness last night after a flush. Trichomes said it was time. Starting to amber up. I left the variegated runt to finish up and one more to turn into an amber goddess.
