So these are Gorilla Glue and Bruce banner Autos from ILGM at 5 weeks. I have them under 18 hours of light, early morning and late night they are on the heated seedling mat under an HLG100 quantum board with samsung LEDS and during the day I bring them into the back yard to soak up some real sunshine. They are being fed lightly. 5ml per gallon Botanicare Grow formula for soil, 2.5 ml per gallon of Botanicare Cal mag and Hi-Brix molasses. I keep the water PH at 6.2, They are in miracle grow potting soil with 25% perlite added and a tbs of mykos per gallon of soil. I feed/water them every3 days or so, when they dry out and feed till water runs from the bottoms of the cups. They germinated in jiffy peat pods and were transferred to the cups once I saw roots poking out of the cloth.
What Im starting to wonder is, if this is even worth it anymore. I know autos are supposed to be smaller, But I didn’t think they were gonna be this small. What could the problem be? Im not a rookie at growing, been doing this for 15 years or so and have had dozens of killer harvests. Im by no means an expert but im definitely not a rookie. part of me is starting to think its the genetics. I already have 6 more seeds that have not sprouted after a week in germination, both water in a cup and paper towel techniques, even scuffed them up lightly with sandpaper before their soak.
