    Update and pics

    Greetings friends.
    The plants got a good watering last night. It had been 5 days since they were transplanted and given water. They have been growing a lot since and I expect them to be more thirsty in the weeks to come. I'd found and booted 3 males and the tent is getting less crowded.


    They have been growing a lot since transplanting. I spotted 2 more males this morning and I think I see pistils on 5 of the 6 that are left, just as of this morning. I'll keep a good eye on them and see but it looks like there are 5 males 6 females and one that was kind of a runt that I didn't have too to transplant. This is what I was planing for. I wanted at least 5 or 6 females to grow out and it looks like that is exactly what we have here. I'll get some close ups of the girls next update. Here are some pics of them from the top.



    So far so good and this grow is going well. I've learned a few things so far and can see where I can improve next time.
    Thanks for stoping by and checking out this grow. I'll update again at the end of the week when they need water again.
    Thanks...Fiddy.

      Hello, interesting! I think I watch often. By the way, Packers are in the playoffs.

        Good afternoon Herman.
        Thanks for stoping by to check out this grow. These plants are getting bigger and this should get interesting here. This grow is very important since my other grow is looking like it's going to end in disappointment and some plants full of seeds.

        Yes the packers got it turned around and the playoffs are like a new season. Maybe they are hot at the right time. We will see how they do the next couple weeks.

        I hope you are well and having a great start to 2017. Peace...Fiddy.

          Greetings friends.
          So I had some problems with my other grow and these autos are going to get the benefit of the 600w light and bigger tent in a couple days. I had planed to move them in a couple weeks or so but plans have changed and get adjusted. I'll be cleaning my flower tent tonight and once that's done I can move the AF's in. I'm pretty sure that the 6 I have left are all girls.

          I have a couple questions that I hope ab can help me with.
          Should I use the MH bulb for a couple weeks or go straight to the HPS? I've herd that the more blue spectrum is a better light for veg but not sure how much more veging they want to do. Since I see pistils do they go right to the stretch and flower? Also have read that the blue light is better for reducing stretch. My other question is do I need to put any support stakes in my pots? If they are going to need support I want to get the stakes in right away so I don't damage the roots down the road.

          I'll put up an update once the girls are in their new home. I have a feeling they are going to love the light once they get moved.
          Thanks...Fiddy.

            Should I use the MH bulb for a couple weeks or go straight to the HPS?
            If too much blue spectrum light is used during bloom, autoflowering marijuana Ruderalis genetics produce leafy buds that aren’t as desirable as tight buds covered in resin glands. Fine to use HPS the whole way through.
            I see pistils do they go right to the stretch and flower?
            They stretch but continue to flower. I noticed you are using perhaps gallon containers? Just be aware- you won't reap much, as mentioned, in the few auto grow guides we provided. We suggested 3 gallon containers for smaller autos which you are growing.....2 gallon at the very least.
            My other question is do I need to put any support stakes in my pots?
            Stake them if you need to....LST is the preferred method to get the maximum bud structure.

              Good afternoon ab.
              Looks like HPS it is. I think the HPS bulb is brighter than the MH bulb anyway so I'm getting the most light per watt this way.

              The pots are 10" and should hold 2 - 2.5 gallons. If I size them up with my 5 gal bucket they come over the 3 gallon mark on the side but are more narrow as they taper toward the bottom. I can put a 1 gallon jug completely inside and there is a lot of space around it. These were the absolute biggest pots that I could use and still get 11 in the tent. Had I had the space or started fewer seeds I'd have gone with 12" pots that hold at least 3 or so gallons. I think the pots look smaller than they are because of how I have them arranged. Also my tent is an oversized 2'x4' meaning it's more like 30" x 54".

              I haven't done any LST yet so this presents an opportunity to try something new. I'll read up on that and see what I can do.

              Thanks for the info ab. Update and pics coming once the move is complete...Fiddy.

                Ok. They just looked small in the picture.....and seeing how plants have responded (small) made me think small 1 gallon....those are 10" and ~8" across.

                With the HPS light, you should see rapid development!

                A few LST tutorials:

                  Good morning ab.
                  Yep the pots look small in the pics but are 10" across and 10" tall. On the smaller side but no way I could have fit 12" pots in the tent.
                  I was chopping my plants and started cleaning tent up last night. One more cleanup tonight and it should be ready. I'll read the tutorials tonight and and get the twine and tape ready. Update and pics once the girls are in their new tent. All 6 remaining look to be girls for sure.

                    For future (indoor) grows...start with larger container and plant 2-3 in them....then if male, easily plucked and you don't hamper root growth.

                    Plants look healthy...YAY! Keep up the great work!

                    They'll do OK, just not great....the more ample room for roots, the better overall plant growth/yield.

                      Good morning ab.
                      Planting 2 or 3 in a pot I'd a great idea. I wish I'd thought of that. I've seen some vids of Jamaicans doing that outdoors and pulling the make or if both females they would let the stronger out grow the weaker one. I never thought about trying it indoor. Will do that next time for sure.
                      Plants seem happy and are growing like crazy. I'll do an update this morning and you can see how much they have grown in the last three days. Now under the HPS they will take off for sure. Thanks for the links on LST, I tied down the two tallest ones last night.

                        A grower of our strains from another forum mentioned 3 gallon was ok, but sees the need to have larger vessel. dickcorn started with 3 gallon grow bag when it became root bound. Suggested he cut the bottom of the grow bag carefully not to severe/cut roots and place atop another 3 gallon bag. His results were astounding.

                        That's why we mention start with large container and no transplanting. We do because of the number of plants used for pheno/breeding, but we transplant early when we can eye ball (before showing sex) and always take entire root ball into larger vessel. Too much shuffling around hampers final yield.

                        Don't feel like you need to do day-by-day reports. It's your option when/how often.

                        Too, like another grower (growing out semi auto)....whatever you do, please don't throw excess leaves/fan leaves atop the soil....it will harbor fungi, mold and all sorts of problems!! It can ruin all that hard work within days of spore incubation.

                        Yes, LST is great...you'll reap more for sure!

                          Update and pics

                          Greetings friends.
                          The 6 girls were moved into the flower tent last night and have plenty of light and space to grow now. They have been growing a lot this week. Now that they have 600w of HPS they will really start packing on the growth. Here is a pic of them in their new home.
                          Whoops it doesn't look like I can add pics anymore. I guess there is some bugs to work out in the new look icmag. You can check my "Autos" album for pics until I can figure out how to add to posts.

                          After watching some YouTube vids and reading some tutorials I decided to LST the 2 tallest girls. I had a hard time bringing myself to tie them down. Let it be known I'm kind of a chicken to try new things. I decided to not be such a big baby and give it a try. I don't have any side branching to speak of right now so I just bent the main stalk over and tied it down. As the others get bigger I may try this with them as well. I'll probably leave at least one in the natural shape to see how different they end up. I'd love to add a pic of the newly lst'd plant but can't add pics so again go to album if you like. These updates aren't going to be nearly as interesting without pics. If there's one thing I've learned it's that we love pics here at icmag.

                          That's about it for now. I'll be keeping a close eye on them and making regular updates. Let's hope I can start adding pics again soon. Thanks for stoping by to check out this grow...Fiddy.

                            Sounds good ab.
                            I'll be using bigger pots and the 2 seedling per pot technique next time for sure. Might even try the fabric pots since not transplanting. I haven't used them before but have herd good things about them.
                            As far as covering the soil with leaves ect I won't be doing any of that. I can see why the no till and living soil guys do it but since I'm growing with regular soil and nutes there's no need for that.
                            Thanks again for the links to the LST info. Like usual with YouTube I started watching the LST bowl technique but then started following random links and before I knew it I was watching vids on free form dreadlocks. Isn't YouTube great

                                You do such a detailed journal it's a pleasure to see you back up
