Learning with Autos ILGM "Autoflower Mix Pack"

HELLO ALL!

This will be my first grow journal :blush::green_heart:

I will be growing three different autos, thanks to I💚GM.

Tent is a 2x2x3 for the time being, Will grow along with my growing experience, more knowledge more need for size.

Light source- 300w Ufo Led x2(New Hlg135w v2 arriving very soon) kinda excited :grin:

Medium- Mother Earth Coco Perlite

Nutes- Dakine 420 Powders, Calmag, Base, Grow, Bloom.

Clip on 6’ fan for air flow

4’ computer fan to cycle air out of tent, still need a good air filter set up if anyone knows one, small is the key thing since tent size is small.

Feeding- Plain ole 6.5 h20 as of now. (Gonna give em 1/8 nutes at 7-10 days “growth depending” )

Co2- no, well idk about it, or if I need it or what to do for it.

Fair warning…these sized plants don’t need more than 5 ml of water per feeding. :+1:

OK, Update since I finally got enough Average readings to say what they are, Average night to early morning temp is 73°, humidity 42% Average day temp, 80° , humidity 38%, I live in the South West and its dry AF, nothing grows outside but mesquite trees. So had to order a small humidifier. Be here Monday.

I grew the Autoflower mix pack, you’re going to need a bigger grow space. I had three plants in a 2 and 1/2 by 5 x 5. And had to remove one of the plants to Outdoors and the ones that stayed inside grew into the lights. If you do this right that tent might only be enough for one plant. Others may have done it but for my experience it’s not enough room

Welcome to the forum @SmallTree! You’re off to a great start! Set to watch if you dont mind! Let us know if you need anything! Happy growing!

@fast-grow Yes, this is more so to just familiarize myself with the process of growing a plant from start to finish, those three are my second full attempt at growing, I have one Gsc Ex Auto alive and well at the moment that im trying to get a hands on lesson of LST on, as I get more confident and comfortable growing from seed to bag, I will upgrade my tent, lights. And use the small one for vegging. Or running a random auto for in between harvests as I progress to photos.

With how easy it is to mess up a auto and have a bad harvest i figured if I can get to where I can maintain them and receive a decent yield then transfer to the nice photo girl’s then i should be on track to nice yielding bushy plants.

Here’s the Gsc she is 21 days old i think in this pic, 23 today.

I reread your post, and see that you know that you’re going to have to expand eventually. I will say that if you LST an Autoflower they can get pretty bushy and massive on you. There’s some excellent videos on YouTube on how to LST a plant, and there may be some links to those videos somewhere on this site but I would not know how to find them myself. I just finished harvesting the last Autoflower that I started out of the mixpak, which was a Northern Lights plant that started out extremely stunted and wound up to be an excellent yielder. I never counted him as one of the three in the tent because he was never big enough to take up much space, but I’m still going to pull almost 2 ounces off that little plant.

Other than having some germination problems with the Northern Lights seeds, i found nothing difficult about growing the autoflowers out of the Autoflower mix pack. They tolerated everything I threw at them and prospered.

Good luck with your grow, Welcome to The Forum, and I’ll be watching your grow.

Been a good day, fed the gsc auto, 5.5 in. 6.9 out.
:sob: not testing ph in the starting 3 weeks was a killer. But she’s a good teacher, purchased a ph meter, ppm meter, ph up and down.

The little girls are good the blue berry being the fastest grower has its second leaves nubing out.

New light hasn’t arrived yet though (2-3 day shipping):confused: six days ago

So is it just me or is the “shiny” mylar whatever backing on grow tents not really all that great.

I mean it reflects light, but my flat white wall seems to do it better :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl: idk if its me or maybe not but they seem to not really add the full surrounding effect I was thinking when I read the description. But that damn white wall will blind you :rofl:

Can I cut any fan leaves off? Its a auto plant Girl Scout Cookies, in coco perlite, 5.6 ph nute feed was 2 days ago, 5.5 flush next cause well I’ve never flushed it and the first couple nutrient runs weren’t tested very first one was like 20% suggested waited 7 days then full ran a feed calmag 2.5g, base 2g, and grow 2g all in a one gallon jug :rofl: umm this was my actual first attempt with no knowledge a learn as u go as some might say.

@SmallTree your ladies are looking good!! Nice LST GSC!!! You can absolutely cut fan leaves off autos or photos to help ensure lights getting to all your bud sites.
