Not2sure With, they say don't do this with autos 🤣

you can layer your medium in your pot and have no root disturbance too. Unlike a photo that has more time to veg, if required, an auto is line an hourglass and you arent sure how much sand is in it. What you do know is the veg time is pre determined and theres nothing you can do to change it. That said, you cannot makenup for lost time with an auto, any setback no matter how small will impact yield. So its best to avoid setbacks. Stresses like topping, fimming, transplanting, environmental issues, too much water, too much or not enough food are all setbacks. Avoid with plants that have a lit fuse.

Either way. I put sprouts (either auto of photo) in a 6" nursery pot filled will seedling mix. From there I transplant into final pot. This seems to give them enough cushion to transition into OF.
Otherwise, in order to directly put into final pot, use a top layer of light seedling mix. Some will use up to 1/3 on top.

So far me using ffof ive only noticed slight yellowing for like the first week of growth after that they seemed to perk right up to a nice color. I am gonna try another kind or do tge mix on the next batch. Hell might even try coco on one for the halibut

@neofraud_811 or any one else. If you want to use this to show what you are doing. It is all good. Especially if you are in soil :grin: I pretty much only do an update once every monday. So feel free to add.

Right now. Both autos are doing good. I think I am finding through a photo I am doing as well. That these may need fed every day with Jacks. While the GH is better suited to a feed, feed, water. @imSICKkid Any thoughts on the feed every time with Jacks?

I do a feed feed water through most of my first grow. Seemed to do ok but most of my grow was with tap water til i got the r.o. system. After that i started doing a feed water feed water routine. 2 to 3 days dry inbetween it all. Unless the buckets felt dry then id water or feed depending in what was up to plate.

Thanks @Mark0427, That is good for little ones. Once I hit 3 weeks. Mine is the 2 feed one. It is the jacks I was wondering about. It doesn’t look like it is happy with a water day. It really drops the ppms fast for run off when top watering. Right now. I am on a dry day between the feed or water for these 2. Starting monday. They will go on a regular feed schedule :smile: I use ro. My tap is about 535ppm I killed my first grow. I learned a lot though lol

What are you thoughts on leaf removal on autos? This is a jack herer auto on day 57.

Its kinda amazing, even though she is trained low (as of now) she has not lost any leaves. I keep tucking everything trying to keep bud sites exposed. Also, along the same line, bud removal?

if the whole plant is getting good light and decent air flow, Id leave er be. If you can improve either then do so. If you want bigger main colas rather than lots of smaller buds, remove the subordinate sites in preference of the branch ends. Dope is dope though and lots of smaller buds weighs about the same as fewer bigger buds. Bag appeal may suffer but…

Following hope that’s okay :v:t2: I grow autos and will be photos but I’ll be still doing autos, quick question, what is super cropping? That the same as defoliating?

2 Likes

Not the same at all. Super cropping is basically squishing the stem damaging the inner part. I guess it opens a highway for the nutes to run thru faster or something like that.

I have never had a complaint from anyone about smoking larfy buds after they have been through a grinder and rolled up in a nice fatty.

Ahhh okay I get ya thanks bro!

Not even close, supercropping is when you crimp the stem and bend over the top, the result is a change in the flow of auxin without the setback of topping or fimming. The downside is a potential lopsiding of the plant and you dont get a doubling of the meristem.

We are still 12c at night here, 0 is 32f so we have some time yet before the cover is pulled down. Frost us a pretty good indicator that your season is about to end. Here we notice a spike in humidity first and then a few weeks later the frost comes.
