Overview

Hi All,

Sorry havent been on for a a cpl of weeks, been well busy with work. Had some proper bad luck with seeds, ending up doing 3 Pink Kush and 3 Mimosa Evo's and none of them popped Unamused was starting to lose thinking im doing something majorly wrong but had these 3 auto beans and all 3 of them popped no problem so think I just got a well unlucky batch from Barneys.

So in short wasted a cpl of weeks fucking about with trying to germ these beans but finally were back in the game. 

So bit unplanned but this time i'll be having my 1st go at growing autos. Ive got 2 Banana Blaze from Dutch Passion and 1 Alaskan Purple from Seedsman.

Banana Blaze Auto Feminised Seeds | Dutch Passion | 

Alaskan Purple Auto Feminised Seeds | Seedsman | 

 

Medium

Same as my last grow I will be using the House & Garden Bat Mix Special soil.

image

Size of Grow Area and number of plants

I will be growing these 3 plants inside a Green Box 0.6m x 1.2m x 1.5m Tent (2' x 4' x 5')

image

Lighting

I will be growing these plants under the Mars SP250 LED light.

image

Extraction

I will be using 4" RAM inline fan attached to a 4" Carbon Filter venting outside the tent through ducting. I will also be running a small length of ducting into the bottom half of my tent to act as a passive intake. Ive got a speed controller for the fan as its quite powerful for the size of the tent.

Pot Sizes

As im going with 3 plants I will downsize and use 12L pots for these.

Nutrients

The nutrient range I will be using for this grow will again be the GHE Triple Pack Flora/Gro/Bloom

image

In addition I will also be using Botanicare Cal-Mag Plus

image

Finally I also will be using GrowthCare pH Up/Down

image

Other Equipment

For balancing and measuring Feeds I will use the Kettotek pH pen and PPM Meter

image

Plan for the grow

So as above its my 1st go at autoflowering plants. With that in mind im aware I'll need to be on it with the training and have that done before going into flower. Ive also read mixed opinions on topping an auto. Personally I do plan on topping mine however any advice on that would be greatly appreciated. I might have a go at mainlining these aswell but again if thats a bad idea with autos then let me know. Other then that, pretty much take it a day at a time as always 

Thats about all for now, any questions suggestions or comments always welcome and if you're following along, hope you enjoy Thumbs Up

autos are awesome man you're going to love it. 

Definitely top them, mainlining can be done too, but has to be timed right. I have mainlined an auto before, it was nice, good yield too, so give it a shot if you want mate Smile

I toped my first auto and out of my ,3 grows I feel I got better results with topping .

I did follow something I read which is topping before 21 days. 

next run I'm going to top before 21 days and add some lst.

I also  4 beans down at the moment with no luck.

Looking forward to your diary

Good luck Redeye bro .. nice diary and plan to follow along 👍

btw interesting to hear the mimosa evo chat above... I grew one end of last year.. germinated ok but was a bit of a runt .. little branching and only yielded about 40g 

However, it was some of the best tasting smoke I’ve ever had though.. absolutely delicious sweet limey taste 

I will defo be growing again as it taste that good and I’m comparing that to a long time growing and even longer smoking weed.

anyways good luck with this little lot 

hope they’re  🔥 👊

Day 1 Update

Thanks for all the replies far everyone. Sounds like a few people have had some issues with the Mimosa's, shame man as it did look like a really great strain, same with the pink kush but nevermind, these 3 went 1st time so lets hope they're good. 

Yeah im definitely topping mine and will be on it with the training.

All 3 have now sprouted the other day so grabbed some day 1 photos of all 3.

CA766F51 8D19 4EE6 85DC A784A7FB91C1

At the moment just lightly watering them and keeping them under plastic cups to keep the humidity up. Will leave them like that for the next few days until theyre a bit bigger then will remove the cups and get them under a fan to start strengthening the stems up. 

Thats about it for todays update. The photos were taken the other day so today is actually day 4 so will post another update over the weekend at end of week 1. Thumbs Up

Day 7 Update

Evening everyone, hope everyone's good and had a good weekend. 

So 7 days since sprout today so thought id grab a few photos.

85AD7F6A 7621 43EB A81C 0212B8696005

I took the cups off them this morning and got a fan over them to start strengthening the stems up. 

Ive upped the light ever so slightly to encourage a little stretch and put the humidifier in there and set it to 70% so they should be loving conditions in there now.

Ive started spreading the water over the soil more now to encourage the roots to start to grow out so hopefully we'll see some good growth this week.

Day 14 Update

Evening all, hope everyone's well and tents smelling great.

So today is end of week 2, had started adding more water and leaving to dry to encourage the roots to grow out and get some good overall growth this last week.

All's gone really well and had some healthy growth over the past week.

655CA0BA 6B21 4EED A0CD 5F0079B61B16

Alaskan Purple on the left and Banana Blaze's middle and right. 

Have had the humidifier in the background running and its all set to keep the RH in there at 70% so nice humid conditions for them. Am gonna give them a cpl more days and then will transplant them into their final pots some point this week, need to get up in the loft and get the 12l pots down. 

Not much else to report at this stage, will post some post transplant pics once their done. Thumbs Up

@redeyejedi Yes mate off to a lovely start Smile

Id say it was a good idea to do the transplant in the loft, so you dont have to move heavy pots around lol.

Day 16 Update - Transplant Day

Evening all, bit overdue on this update but just been manic with work so apologies for the retrospective update. 

So last Tuesday I transplanted all 3 of the plants, they were all looking pretty sad so it was about time they all got a new pair of shoes so grabbed a few photos of them whilst I did it.

32DEB4AC B1FD 4B22 94A6 25EAC90FDB11
C4D051BC FEA9 4DD9 913E BD1D9C840011
F2B715DF BFC2 4F34 8704 5629F135B44C

E84357BA F641 438D B358 5AEB2C10367C

Unfortunately I left one of the the 12L pots back at my brothers so 2 went in to 12L pots and 1 of the Banana Blaze's has gone in a 20L pot. Ive only filled it probably 3/4 so as to try and ensure it doesn't outgrow the 2 in smaller pots.

As you can see from the 2 photos of the roots, it was definitely the right time to transplant. I used the starter pot the plants were in as a template and just filled the new pots around to create the hole you see and sprinkled a bit of great white in there and gently placed them into the holes.

And here they all are in their final homes 

E432D3A1 5733 4042 B99F ABF05EA34A6B

All 3 had 500ml of tap water after the transplant 6.04 pH and 53PPM

I'll put another update up when I can as theyve came along nicely since the transplant and ive already started training 2 of them and 2 of them have been topped. Will do the other tomorrow as it was a little behind the others but shes in the bigger pot.

Day 31 Update 

So ive just gone to do this update and realised its been over 2 weeks since I last did, dont know where the time goes.

Well since the last post the plants were all topped and have just been getting plain pH'd tap water feed every other day. Below is pic of all 3

A6C7F912 D25D 4B66 8493 BA0F4AC25434

The Alaskan Purple on the left, I think may of started going into flower, below is a couple of pics of her. What do you reckon?

8EA45D8C 33FA 4072 B8B1 25DF0D43E7E0

And heres the 2 Banana Blazes

D5593AA4 C4C5 4193 A833 7448A0FA73D4
AB68CD38 4A41 4CB7 AE67 1CB44275A444
F5FDA663 D4FB 45D2 BDF0 2D79FFCC90AA
2DB7E6C5 366F 4BB0 87D1 F40BFB14F1E4

Ive not been as on it with the training as id of ideally liked so the mainline never really happened. Will introduce some nutes this weekend as like I said shes only had tap water so far but has looked fine and as you can see is looking very healthy so ive really needed to add anything.

On the Alaskan you might notice some yellowing tips which I noticed a few days ago and looked like light burn so the light has been slightly raised since then.6.68

Feed today was 6.68 pH and 42PPM

Temp is the tent is about 28C lights on and around 20C lights out and RH ive got humidifier in there set to 65%

Thats about it for today, will try and get next update up a bit sooner.
