I wanna grow 2 x autos in small pots as a bit of an experiment in feeding and training.  They'll be started on 18/6 and moved to 12/12 when I need to do this for my photos.  I know this will limit growth even further (on top of the small pot)

i've not decided exactly which training techniques I'm gonna use yet, but probably something simple like an early top, remove 1st node and LST. 

i'll water with rain water and a bit of sea weed every now n then.   

I don't have a tent.  I just borrowed a light and started growing.  Very crude haha.   see picture. I have a small 400w heater on a temp sensor set between 18.5 and 22 degrees.  no real way of controlling humidity atm.   It's important to keep noise down.  I also have a small desk fan set quite close but on low setting. 

I'll start cracking the seeds today.

This looks interesting. I do lots of micro grows and mostly with autos too. One grown in a beer can just came down a few weeks ago. It will be good to see your approach and results. Good luck on the run.

@monkeydo Cheers mate!  It was actually mainly your micro grows which inspired me! ha!  I recently found your Insta and saw the pictures, and saw you'd mentioned it as a space filler and wondered if it was worth me doing the same.  I'm going with 1L fabric pots.  I'm sure they'll need a lot of watering!  I have a rough idea of what i'd like to do, but we'll see what happens..  

What yield do you usually get from your micro grows?  They look absolutely stunning!

The ones grown in coffee mugs are in the one ounce range. The last one I did was the best so far at 46.3 grams in a one pint (.5 liter). Coco is my media of choice for these because the soil is definitely going to run out of nutrients with the small pot size. They take a lot of work keeping them watered but can produce fantastic weed in small areas.

@monkeydo  Thats pretty awesome mate!!

 

I'm wondering what to do now...   i've decided i can fit a dedicated micro grow tent in my garage roof, so instead of having these hanging around the edge of my shed grow, they will go into micro grow tent when its setup.  I think I better pot into something which will help me to make the most of my new tent and light etc.  I'd like both plants in there, and its going to be a 50 x 50 x 100 tent, so i guess the pots needs to be small, circa 3L, and then I think I'll scrog the tent and train the plants side by side.  in future I'll maybe just do 1 plant with a bigger pot.  I'm just kinda making it up on the fly...     I'm new to this and I've got the bug, so I'm just kinda making it up as i go along.

Update, beginner mistake made hah!   I cracked the seeds nicely and planted them.  one of the seedlings popped its head out but got the seed stuck and even though I helped to tease it off it didn't work out.  I've since realised that they are far too close to the fan....  they've been getting dried out!!! luckily the second seed is ok, so i have moved it and now covered with a glass jar to maintain humidity...   I did know this...    oh well!!   another mistake I won't make again! :O)

@norman-nebosh, don't bother with the seed hulls man, that plant is going to get so BIG that the little seed hull won't stand a chance!! Wink   The plant will get rid of it when it's ready, plus the hull contains everything the seedling needs to grow. I don't even notice them anymore, I've got a couple on plant that are two weeks old and they don't notice. Removing them can cause more problem, incase you didn't know. Shock   LOL, it all good, now you know.

@woodi2 Cheers mate Smile   do they always come off?   I was kind of thinking it looked very dry when I took it off.  i later realised about the fan, so was thinking that maybe the fan dried out the hull totally.   either way,  won't do either again hah!

@norman-nebosh, well if they don't come off completely, they sure as hell don't bother anything. lol here's one at about 2 weeks, it's stuck somehow but it doesn't matter, if I were to pull it off and it somehow torn a hole then possible an infection could happen. But all I know is, I've never seen somebody walking the world removing seed hulls from all natural growing plants! LOL LoL   The manufacture had a pretty good idea from the start. 👍

Look close at this one at 2 weeks, she never even thought twice about it!! lol

@woodi2 fair enough.  It looked dried out to me.    Of course, nobody walks the earth, but plants sew far more seeds than they need.  Many fail to germinate for a whole host of reasons.   we are aiming to create the perfect environment.   In the past I've taken the hull from dozens of non-cannabis plants so thought fuck it why not.   I've done it with cannabis seeds to earlier this year, which still makes me think its that it was too dry haha. but fair enough, if you say it doesn't matter, I'll give that a go in future 😉
