I will be using 70/30 coco in hard pots from what I. Read ww auto from ILGM is 11-13 weeks of life from germination till harvest I’m using a 2.5x2.5 tent with 3 gal hard pots was wondering if I can get away with 2 gal hard pots since I’m in coco? I am going to grow 3 plants in their 1 lst other 2 as is all natural… anyone have experience with this strain how big will they get without training like height and width also what I can expect yield wise without training I have two Optic 1 xl 3500k lights in the tent 100true Watts each what’s a realistic yield to aim for assuming I do my part?
just a suggestion… only grow 2 in that tent. ive got 4 in my 4x4 and theyre running out of room fast at week 12 and 3 of them still have atleast 4 weeks to go
Imo if you’re going with 3 gallon pot you would be better off with fabric. It will allow roots to grow through and air prune, as opposed to roots circling the bottom typically on a hard pot. If you do stay with hard pot, drill a bunch of extra holes in bottom and around base to help with roots getting oxygen.
There are growers here that can pull a half pound out of a 2x2 tent. I’m not sure how likely that is with programmed life of an auto, but I would expect a healthy plant to produce 3-4 zips.
Are yours auto flowers?
@Buddernugz this is a thread I posted regarding my first grow which was WWA “Today is day 47 for my WWA. I have 4 plants in a 7’ tall 3x3 tent. Three of them are 46” tall and the 4th around 42"… They are ILGM seeds and Bob said they are compact at around 24" maybe 30". This is my first grow and they are scaring me a bit. Are these girls on steroids or what? Grow conditions: 5g smart pots, FFOF soil and FF trio for nutrients. They are under a Kind 2 XL 600 (320W), 20/4 light schedule with Scrog.
Update re WWA on steroids.
Anyway, I harvested 4 plants having a total weight into the jars to cure of 366 grams. The lightest plant was 64 grams and the heaviest was 123. The other 2 were 88 and 90. It took 30 days to harvest them. I started first plant on day 71. The last one came down on day 101. I really pushed the Trio (unintentionally) and as a result I think they went a little wild.
While going through the WWA grow picture I came across this of Cedar Waxwings catching a drink for their migration south
I currently have one WWA going. Drastically different than the ones pictured. She is in a 3 gallon fabric pot, same soil, but much fewer nutrients. This her almost 2 weeks ago. She hasn’t grown much taller (maybe 20" and was topped) flowers are just filling out.
@Buddernugz Yeah mine are autos after you train them they get pretty wide lol (thats what happened to me) you can keep em short but you have to make sure you have space for that width
Measuring from the soil up or from the bottom of the container?
If measuring from the top of the soil they would be very tall. Taller than my WWX I’ve grown that were Photo plants and my largest was maybe 36” above the soil with about 10 ounces dry yield.
Not saying they weren’t that tall but wow if they were
yep from the soil. I stopped measuring the one with 9/20 54" tag on the tent. I maxed them out with FF trio.
So. How many do you think I’d be able to grow in 3 gal coco pots in a 4x4?
Also how far should I space them apart 6”?
I do 4 autos in my 3x3. That is 2.25 ft2 per plant. I currently have 4 amnesia haze autos in there and they have plenty of space. I think a general rule out there is 2 sq ft per auto. Using the 2.25 ft would give you 2 -3 autos in your 2.5x2.5. I grow in soil so not sure if coco is ±. I know nutrient application is more critical. And, I do like fabric pots like dnrn32 says. Is the Optic 1 dimmable? Just wondering about when they are young.
Yes and no I cheaped out and got non dim Xl’s
Ww autos? I have 4 lights so my tent can be maxed out just don’t wanna run into space issues if I lst 4 ww autos and defoliate leaves blocking bud sights only would 4 fill up my tent?
4 lights? are they all optic 1 cobs? 400 watts to cover 6.25 sq ft = 64 watts per sq ft.
4 would be pretty cozy in there. Usually don’t defoliate autos. Just enough to have good air flow.
3 optic 1 xl 100 watts each and 1 mars hydro ts1000 150 watts
Do u lst ? Like bend main shoot over at a 90degree angle? I’m planing on getting a 3x3 flood table in my 4x4 tent so my plants will be a little closer than I want but the plus is my lights will overlap each other a lot more so I’ll have ample ppfd I really hope these wwa beans don’t hit 42” I’m planing on stuffing 9 3 gal pots in that tent so I’m going to have to be very careful how I lst these guys I’ve done enough trial runs time to bump it up to full production I’m 3k into this hobby time to show Mission control that it’s not a waste lol just wondering if I’d be better off growing 4 and lst them or go balls deep and grow 9 and hope they don’t turn into monsters …hmmmmmmm
@Buddernugz LST to a limited degree. This is the solo WWA pictured earlier.
I’m confused. You started talking about a 2.5x2.5 and now it is 4x4? It is hard to express my thoughts if circumstances change. In the future, organize yourself, ask concise questions and the members will be able to provide you with the best information they can provide.
Sorry about that I looked at my 2.5x2.5 it’s only 50” tall so I would not have enough room for them if they grew 40” even 30” tall would be tight so I changed my lights over to my 4x4 and I’m going to just use that
Any idea what Ppms I should stick with this is my first auto usually I start at 125 ppm
i really dont like my plants even touching each other so i didnt train the bubble gums except for bendind the main colas down. lol next grow is only gonna be 2 plants and im making them monsters.
What was your yield on those 4 also their autos right?
