They were cut into a quadline layout, but I did not have time to really train them, you can see the timeline was a short veg to flip to sex them…not really my way style of growing, but it will suit the purposes. I cut clones of each one in the event I get a stellar pheno, and if so then I’ll take my time laying out a proper quad. In the upper right “search”, look up Mainline, Manifold, Quadline, FIM, Topping… all terms for different styles of training. Some cool stuff when you get there, lots of guys/gals here do some amazing stuff.

I used canna Coco expandable bricks, Jack’s part A and B 321 system, and add fish sh!t after pH’ing. Same amount of feed every day and I easy to adjust. Too much nitrogen, back off part b. Too much potassium? Back off part a. Super simple. The GDP is getting ridiculous trichome coverage.

@Borderryan @Pet_de_Chien so I just discovered the seeds I order were never autoflowers but that still doesn’t explain why they didn’t make it lol

Were they ILGM?

Yes they are ilgm @Borderryan

Hmmm… I feel bad having given advice and they didn’t make it. But advice given was from experience, and @Pet_de_Chien knows his stuff too.

Yea but now it makes since starting them in a 5 gallon pot was not the way to go but that’s my fault was it ever a good idea to start a photo in 5 gal Pot? @Borderryan

I couldn’t tell ya I’m on my first photo run. The last 2 autos I ran did that tho. I chunked one 5 weeks in flower because it wasn’t bigger than a hot dog. I let the other go and she only gave me 11 grams.

The auto I have now is in a 1 gallon and really big for it.

The thing I noticed with soil tho, for me, in my very short experience, is it packs really easy and that can cause trenching and channeling where the water only goes in specific paths instead of soaking all the soil.

Okay I’m sorry to hear what happen to your girl! I know that wasn’t the best news): but I have no idea how to even begin photo I got 3 seeds in rapid rooters and 5 gallon pots idk if once they sprout do I place them in solo cups or get 1 gallon pots on my youtube right now trying learn what to do /:disappointed_relieved:
@Borderryan

Haven’t tried rapid rooters. I just soak then bury them in solo cups. I used a clear solo cup, cut holes in bottom to drain, and slipped that in a red solo cup with holes for drainage. This way you can slip the clear cup out and see what your roots are doing. About two weeks later, final home. This was Bruce Banner photo at about 12 days I believe…

Oh wow okay so it’s not so much different! I thought I was going to have to buy other pots and a bunch of other stuff! But okay I got to get clear solo cups just have to buy those! And idk how it’s going to work with the happy frog soil I have! Do I have to buy that Mycorrhizal stuff too huh to transplant them? Or what do you use to transplant @Borderryan

Starting Pot size really doesn’t matter, It will appear that the plant is growing slowly, as the roots will continue to grow more aggressively than the topside until they hit a side or bottom, while the tops grow gradually, but then typically, the top explodes and grows crazy fast, inches a night.
So probably better for a new grower to start in a smaller pot as info is a lot to juggle along with an aggressive growing plant. but end of day…no harm no foul.

Didn’t make it? or you towel tossed em? last I looked in they were sturdy but appeared very hungry.
Photos are easier in some aspects, but for a new grower Autos will be more forgiving to mistakes, particular the light-period one that everyone makes at least few times in growing.

I don’t see any bad advice. At some point it’s triage - do no further harm, stabilize and try to recuperate.

No I never did give up on them I didn’t take them out of there 5 gallons pots about a week ago now. Because I was going to give up but something told me not and just dig them out of there and put in solo cups if they die they die. But there are still fighting and now knowing they aren’t auto’s I have high hopes the pure indica she is the Lil one she is showing new growth! And the granddaddy purple she is still strong and she also had new growth! I popper another granddaddy purple about 6 days ago she is breaking through the surface finally! But the other 2 seeds of pure indica aren’t showing any changes and I have been patient but again not giving up! And yalls advice was very helpful! It was just bad on my part for not knowing my seeds weren’t auto’s lol but your tips of 15mL a day didn’t help very much! @Pet_de_Chien @Borderryan

I was gonna say, I really do appreciate the brutal honesty lol. But the new growth up top does look ok. Not a bad job digging them up and getting them back into a solo cup. I’m kinda impressed.

Have you used any mykos by chance? Xtreme gardening has a free nutrient sample pack that has a wettable powder you can mix with pH’ed water. It stimulates root growth. Just Google Xtreme nutrient sample pack. It’s $8 for shipping. I used it for the first few weeks. It takes about 10 days to get it, but it’s I nice little tool to have in the box.
