As the title states, I’m Baaaaccckkk baby! This time I’m not having as much luck lol. These autos have proven to be a lil difficult compared to their photo period brethren…
454 cfm exhaust fan into a 6 inch carbon filter not running due to it being colder
260w xw QB model 288v no rspec, with diodes burning out and going dim.
3- 5 gal. Fabric pots with 1/3rd ocean forest and the rest happy frog soil from fox farms.
I have a 6 inch desk fan running on low at bottom for inlet fresh air with both vents open at bottom of tent.
Watered with straight water at 6.2 p.h. every ~4 days or til soil is dry. No feedings as still in seedling stage.

Hey guys and gals, it’s been an interesting 2 weeks with getting things setup and trying my hand in the autoflower realm. Things got off to a horrible start as I started 3 sir jack autos from exotic seeds to no avail. I have started seeds in the paper towel method, in a shot glass and directly in soil and have never had a seed that wouldn’t germinate until now… All 3 of the first rounds of seeds didn’t show after 4 days of being in a shot glass and finally they drowned themselves on the 5th night. I grew impatient and decided to try the last 2 and another strain of uk cheese from Phoenix seeds all directly in soil. Within 2 days the cheese had popped but still no signs of the herrer that caused me terror! I
am not giving up though as they have finally made their appearance, granted they are very sickly and just sad looking I REFUSE TO GIVE UP lol…
I will never order from the vendor I purchased my light from, June 2020 my 1yr warranty is up but since they no longer carry individual boards the best they could do was offer me 100.00 rebate towards new boards, from hlg at 65.00 a piece. Not complaining at all, I definitely got shafted a lil though. No worries as 2 new 288 v2 rspec boards are on their way direct from hlg to replace the 2 bad. They were on sale also which is awesome, if anyone’s looking for lights or a upgrade to your existing setup HLG is having a pretty good sale on everything in stock!
I’m still having a great time and loving every minute including the small bumps along the way.
Hope everyone is doing great outside the grow room as well as in and are enjoying the fruits of your labor! Have a great Sunday everyone and I will keep everyone posted every week on my auto journey!
Thanks for taking the time, DB.
