this is my first grow indoors.
i have a 1.2x1.2m tent
2x 400w hps
1 100w fullspectrum led from sanlight
3 autos easy bud
1 holy punch fem and a couple of clones
growing in earth
using bio fertelizer
fans carbonfilter and exhaust
my temps range between 17 and 30 °C
humidity is around 50%
ph kept between 5.7 and 6.6
the autos are aprox 3 week from harvest.
i did some experiments with them.
one i didnt touch
one i just took away some leaves
one i did some LST like bending, lollypoping and defoliating
veg went trough smooth, no issues at all
they all had some nitrogen deficency the days after crismas.second week of flowering. i left them with an irrigation system, without nutrients for 5 days, and 2/3 of their leafes turned yelow when i came back. i also stoped feeding them grow fertelizer too soon.
the holy punch wasnt affected by that at all.
as far as i can tell the one auto i didnt touch ist doing best. she isnt the biggest, nor the most resinous but
she has the biggest buds, most bud sites, althoug her leafs are still more yellow than the other too she will be ready for harvest first.
the one i only took some leafes is the least advanced but the highest of them all. cant realy say how much the buds will grow and about the resin.
the one i manhandled most will be second to harvest, she is looking most frosty, her buds are swelling up ncely these days, but her overal appearence is not ideal. the diffrent branches and their buds are all very close to each other.
what astonishes me most is the fact that the one i didnt touch is nice and bushy, the branches grew out to get the most light, where as the ones i tried to force into the light grew tall and compact.
i heard autos are best to be left alone, either my lst was crap or that saying has some merit…
my future setup will be with a veg tent 90cmx90cm and a flowering tent, on which i will need some advice
i plan to have a mother in the veg tent and make 2 to 3 grows from her with SOG in the flowering tent.
unfortuntely i didnt make pics of this grow until recently, i will put on some rencent ones tonight…
any input is appreciated, as this is my first grow indoors.
the thing I sense is the main difference to outdoors is the pot, many things change just because of the pot.
and is it possible to change my screen name? because it has become higly inadequat unless i start to do some guerilla grows, which i dont plan to…
