I was wondering since your a mentor could you help me with a feeding schedule and light cycle for my ilgm seeds which is Ak47 auto.?
He’s the man to ask, also @yoshi is a master of the nutrients as well! It’s his birthday too!
http://support.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/users/yoshi if you could help choose between my foxfarm or my humboldt nutrients. ?
How old is your auto flower , but a nutrient feeding depends on the strain of the plant . If you know how to feed using ppm would be awesome but if not stick to the standard methods water , water , feed . Now for nutrients what can you afford is what you master first and grow as you grow , make sense ? General hydroponic , Fox Farm , Techna Flora , are good nutrient lines to learn and produce good buds , but Advance nutrients , Dutch Masters , ILGM , and now Humbolt is the high end nutrients that has produced great results for me only if you can afford them . For as light schedule you can do 18/6 in the first trimester on auto flowers and once it starts budding you can adjust the schedule to your likings , but I like experimenting in my grows cause I keep written journals on each grow for comparisons in bud quality and wieght , so I start with 24/0 for the first week , than second week 20/4 than 18/6 for 3 weeks which should be in the preflowering and the stretch , than I do 16/8 a week in week 6 than 14/10 to 12/12 into 10/14 until plant finishes . Remember intense light is how plants feed and produce but intense light in flowering decreases resin trichomes and extended dark periods help plants protect themselves by producing more resin trichomes during flowering to become pollinated to reproduce and protect buds , so by extending the dark period in late flowering help build lots of crystals of resin on your buds in my opinion ,hope this helps !!!
I like Fox Farm hole nutrient line liquid and powder base nutrients , have not tried Humbolt yet but will as soon as I get back from vacation in 3 weeks , will do a grow journal on the Dutch master and Humbolt .
Seed has not been planted im am trying to set up for securing a good foundation. I have a pic of what I have so far. And i have a 5 gallon smart pot. Im getting some black gold compost .
The one to the right is airstone pump.little black bag earthworm and blood worm casting. Mykos is to the right of little black bag . Mykos is a bacteria that the sun makes in outdoor soil.lite tan pouch is a foliage spary its boogie brew protein spray. And little bottle of hand sanitizer…did i forgot anything?
No you got it. Well planned. So are you gonna bury the airstone in the soil of the pot? Not familiar with the Mykos or the boogie brew. You are using aome things i havent seen anyone else use. So it has me curious
Yes airstone in the middle under root system. Mykos helps with bacteria the sun would make. Plants need proteins certain times. And its high in phosphorus. And its just crushed sea life. Its a spray on booster
And the boogie brew i use in all of my gardens. I have a big vegetables garden. I also grow carnivorous plants… They need alot of protein.
Layer your soil Fox Farms ocean Forest on the bottom Happy Frog top but @yoshi is a soil layer master from what i remember
Air stone hell yes i use one in my grow and yes its soil happy frog only next grow happy and ocean forest with extra perlite
Hell ya i like that airstone idea. I was tryin to think how to get more air to the roots, i was thinkin of all kinds of chilish ways to pull it off. So what stage of grow will you use the protein on your autos? And i guess that bag of white chunks is rocks for drainage?
Yes perlite. Protein spray every 3 weeks. Just as a booster
Oh its perlite. It looks like chunks, the perlite i find round here looks like bing bag filler. Tiny like Bbs. I wondered how that helps beings so small
I got it from foxfarm. Big granular. Its on ebay
