Got the dedicated autoflower tent upgraded ready to go.
Stayed with a 4x2 but went taller this time. Also went with SF and it’s so much nicer than the knockoff tent I had.
Also got the SF humidifier since I seen a friend using it with good feedback.
So this tent is Spider Farmer G4500 (450W) w/ SF UV bars running the entire time the main light is on 20/4.
Both 5 gallon pots using Happy Frog mixed with Dolomite Lime and soaked in Recharge.
Using Lotus Nutrients of course.
Botanicare CalMag Plus & Advanced Nutrients Bud Candy for some sugars.
Both are Mephisto Genetics of course.
First one to pop was HubbaBubbaSmelloScope.
The other which I’m super psyched about being a CBD:THC cross or whatever they call it, is Aunt Ginny’s Elixir
Love the SF zippers
I’ve got tents made by HLG, Vivosun, and Marshydro.
And the SF has more access holes, and the best zipper I’ve ever seen, they really do make good stuff
good luck!! I’ll be lurking in the halls
I agree, I was like a kid in a candy shop when I put the tent together .
The zippers are amazing and the poles, I love how you can loosen the knobs and slip them in and tighten and voila.
The girls are doing good. No stretching and all is well. Will be excited to get past the seedling phase where I can kill them without effort
The AK47 from the last grow is still going berserk, lots of purples coming in.
Chopped the Fruity Pebbles last night and have her drying ( she is FUNKY)
looking sparkly and awesome, well done!
The girls both got about .5 gallon of water in a
around the pot today.
Temps staying about 76 and RH 65-70%
They are loving life so far.
they look like they are settling in nicely to growing. Good luck!
Both are about to explode. Those first real true leaves are about to make so much photosynthesis
The autos are starting to hit that super growth time
( don’t mind the fungus gnats, damn happy frog is littered with them everytime but they are on way out)
Autos are hitting that quick growth spurt.
I noticed that too…last year I had fungus gnats BAD and went back to the store to get a new bag…owner wasnt overtly dismissive but was slightly bemused at my assumption. I knew I was right. I get the gnats to stop before they start by mixing diatomaceous earth in each pot of soil I start now. I also will pack sand on the top of the soil if I notice them about. Two inches of hard packed sand will still let all the water and nutes through without letting the gnats in/up/out
Thanks for the info I may do that if the mosquito bits don’t knoxk them out ( usually does)
The two bags I got from one place were literally pouring out when I opened the bag but the 2 I used today on my photoperiods were good to go not a single one.
The HubbaBubbaSmelloScope got its first LST today.
The Aunt Ginny’s Elixir is short and bushier and may just get her branches pulled out like one of the last ones I grew ( just depends on how tall she gets in the next few days and if I feel like dealing with it
Rather than make another diary for my photoperiod grow I’ll just periodically throw some updates on here ( grow style is identical).
All 4 popped overnight
2 are ILGM Granddaddy Purple
2 are Copycat Genetixx Daddy’s Girl S1
First time all 4 have popped and not one needed help or had some sort of issue
Now it’s official, you wont be not-growing a plant for the rest of your life! I hope you bring it outdoors someday and get to stroll around your garden. Happy Fourth of July
Oh yea I don’t waste any time
I’m fortunate to be sponsored by SF and when asked what product I want for this grow I said a tent so I can use my old one for drying so I have no downtime I am definitely addicted
Happy 4th to you as well
Did a little defoliation on the short bushy girl ( chopped the two top leaves off)
Also tightened up the LST on the other one.
Also the photoperiod seedlings all doubled in size overnight
Print-outs and grow resouces, thats cool handy to the grow. How many times I gone thru devices lookin for info! When I build a grow room I’m copying that lol thanks
