Smile Autoflowering Trip 2018

Hi high people !

This thread will be done from present actions to explanations.

I have to experiment theory :



So , what's going on right now in my cab and on the little terrace ?

Auto's season was started at the beginning of march here.
A 10 pack of Deimos auto reg from buddha seeds was launched indoor .

The goal is clearly to taste the Deimos, it has a great reputation about its potency, and to make few f2 and also few other little crosses as well .

So 8/10 seeds popped . And it was awful . Seedlings were snatching their own cotyledons and were carrying deficiencies, and mutations .
Just bad luck ... that's the game with alive materials, I'm not angry against Alchimia where I bought the seeds or against the brand buddha seeds .

Whatever, I have now 1 very nice "normal" selected deimos male and 3 females , 1 normal female, and 2 others with little mutations .

The male went on the terrace few days ago, it's sunny right now .
But the fresh temperatures made him purple-ishing .

First day outdoor :



Yesterday :



Today :



Apparently, it's time to work !!!

So, right , the male is on the terrace, what else ?

As I was saying, I have the females indoor, under 400w hps and 96w led (given for 200w) .

So 3 Deimos females in 14 liters pots.

I popped 6 auto reg seeds from my Sour Rocket 60 f4 stash . I had 5 females ! I killed the male .
Sour Rocket 60 was made by Corsaire few years ago , this a little and fast auto. Seeds are BIG !



It's something like Sour 60 x ( russian rocket fuel x Sour 60 ) .

(exact pedigree here: https://www.opengrow.com/topic/47024...much-progress/ the link will work in 3 days)

I had a dozen of f3 beans from him 2 years ago . The first try was so impressive that I have made f4 beans .

I popped 4 Sour Cheese Auto f3 also , and had only 1 female .
Exactly same story as sour rocket 60 .

Sour Cheese Auto was made by Corsaire few years ago , this a little and fast auto.

I had a dozen of f2 beans from him 2 years ago . The first try was so impressive that I have made f3 beans .

Pedigree is Cheese Candy Auto (delicious seeds) x sour rocket 60 .
I would prefer to name her Sour Candy . It's a strong fast indica but I can't taste or smell the cheese side .
Whatever, I have the project to inbred it one more time to f4 to fix some traits .

The deimos are 40 days old . The other ones around 30/33 days old.

Few days ago:

General view :


SCA Stretching


So the plan is about :
- To pollinate only the first 2 lower branches on each female plants to not affect the weed production .
- To kill the male .
- To put all those females on the terrace in flowering stage .

I'm out of space ! So I will have some free space for the new seedlings I soaked 48 hours ago ...

Sounds like a plan on residual plants....good luck!

Good work you're doing there. I'm fascinated by autos but haven't yet grown them. I feel a little intimidated by all the various companies that sell them and which to go with. For a while, and even now, a lot of bad rumors and myths have circulated about autos (low potency, tend to be picky about nutes, watering, transplanting, generally weak plants, etc.)

For me since I grow outdoors, there would be a huge advantage with them as I could get an early harvest while waiting for my photoperiods later in the season.

Anyways I've subbed and will be following your thread.

Yeah for sure, there are some golden rules to follow with autos .

No transplanting . Because the main roots is scanning the bottom of the pot and secondary roots the quantity of soil for a correct bloom .

So big pots are a plus, and long shapes special autos too . 18/20 liters .

https://www.alchimiaweb.com/en/12x12...oduct-3965.php

Aerated soil (1/3 coco) . And small waterings to raise their metabolism up .

You have to be super aware on vegging stage ! It's better to start them under 20hours of light if you can , for a sure strong start.

But if you follow those rules . And surely others I forget . They are easy to grow .

So next round will be more serious.
I soaked 4 diesel automatic .



- 2x Ice Cool Auto from Sweet Seeds
- 2x Sour Diesel Autofem from Dinafem

(I will pop them a sr60 husband 1 week later)

Here the ice cool, the 2 other ones are exactly at the same stage.


So it is perfect timing to make some cheap Makizushi !





Now lightmix and water :



Now the seedlings are in a safe place for the night .
I will work on their definitive pots tomorrow.

A new life popped !

An Ice Cool came to light .
(Sorry for the bad pictures)



Time to wash a 20 liters autoflo pot :



To put enough clay peebles to go over the water tray max level.
This way,I have a nice air buffer zone to take care of the roots .





My soil was already ready : 2/3 plagron royal mix 1/3 enhanced ugrow cocomix 2 spoon of mineral magic 50 grams batguano .

But in the end , I put a 1 liter pot where my seedling is going to be .

Pot removal and then 1 liter of LIGHTMIX to not burn my babies !


Little shower, and then MAKIZUSHI with baby in !



It may look ridiculous for now . But that's the way to make a nice harvest per plant .

A little overview :



All those females are (slightly) pollinated now, the male is still outdoor and had to face a terrible weather . They will go outside soon .

This Deimos female is quite BUSHY isn't it ? (42days)
