Well a little slow on posting but. First time with an Auto and so far so good. Plant was started on 24/24 T-5 until first flowers showed on week 3 from seed. I was going on vacation and setup a dripper and started the seeds in the bucket instead of germination. Plant didn’t miss a beat. Plant grew so fast LST needed to be started sooner. Then put her on 600w LED 20/4 which I am running now. Until roots reached the water in the bucket, used PH’d water.
Once the roots made it to the water used the General Hydro Trio @ 1/2 strength reducing to 1/4 strength after week 5 to week 8. since week 8 now on day 69, using only Cha-Ching, Beastie Bloom and MPG 0-0-2.
Was turned on to the MPG 0-0-2 from my friends @willitsgardensupply. For all previous grows I had been using Hydroguard to help maintain root health but changed to the MPG with great results. For this grow using the MPG I was able to maintain a bucket water temp of 70-76 with no issues what so ever, really impressed. I did use it the whole grow 25ml per bucket change approx. 3.5 gallons. The other change I did for this grow was maintain the same temp throughout. 74-77 degrees from day one. For the 4 hours lights off I try and run temp to 66 degrees.
From Day 66 figure 2 weeks? Wish I could post a smell for you, wife says just like a SEE’s candy store.
