I'm watching one of each of Auto Zam and Auto Malawi NL in their last two weeks now, and so far they look like they are going to be amazing! The stickiness and aromas are off the chart for autos, and it looks like they will have a really nice yield. This is my first time with any Ace gear, and I've been so impressed with these two strains that I already reordered two packs of each a few weeks ago. I wish I could post some pics, because they are really starting to get colorful and plump. Both have a nice structure with good main colas and lots of productive side branches. The Malawi needed the side branches tied down and out to open it up to the light and air a little more than the Zam, but I tied some of the Zam branches down a bit too. Nice, non-larfy growth on the lower branches too. I think you're gonna love these. I know I am. Can't wait to taste them for the first time!

Welcome Big M,

Glad both Auto Malawi x NL and Auto Zamaldelica are performing great there
Thank you very much for your positive feedback

Your getting me excited Big M! I have to say the fantastic descriptions on the ACE site are one of the things that made me choose ACE. Awesome to hear they are living up to expectations! Chime in later with a smoke report here or pictures if you want... I would love to hear it.

Im over here praying for the sun to peak out so my plants can get some sunlight! Been a rough start to the summer over here.

You're welcome Dubi. Both autos have been incredibly easy to manage and very forgiving while I get used to a new tent, new LED setup, and new nutes. Using a three HLG 135's running at 120 watts at the wall each in a 3x3 tent, growing in coco in three gallon fabric pots.

Mallard, I'll be sure to chime in with pics and smoke reports. Shouldn't take too long to get to 50 posts so I can post some pics. There will be an initial quick-dry smoke report within a couple days after cut, and I'll add a proper report after curing. The awesome descriptions and in depth strain info really appealed to me as well, and all the discussions here pushed me over the edge. So far, I am very happy with everything from Ace, and can't wait to pop some more beans! The sun will shine soon. Looking forward to seeing your plants in action too.

Hi everyone!

The weather has been a bit better for the last week and the girls have loved soaking up the sun! They have really taken off this past week and are starting to develop nicely I think.

It has been so nice I have ran out of fresh water from my rain barrel so I have had to start using tap water. I see a lot of people spending lots of money buying reverse osmosis systems and money on fancy dechloranating products from the hydro store, but there is a better solution IMO. I just use pure Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) to take chloramine out of my tap water. Much cheaper and has the added benefit of bringing the PH of my water down to about the right level. I have been doing this in my garden for a few years now and the plants seem to like it. Its about 15$ for a bottle and lasts me a couple seasons of watering my whole garden.

Here is an article from the US Department of Agriculture detailing the chemical reaction and how Ascobic Acid can be used to decholrinate water. It deals with both chlorine and chloramine. Just a bit of information I thought might be useful to some people.

https://www.fs.fed.us/t-d/pubs/html/.../05231301.html

Anyways the plants are coming up 4 weeks since sprout. I anticipate that they will begin flower in the next week or so. The small one (An Auto Zam) is about 2 weeks behind the others as it was planted later. I thought I saw some minor bug damage on one so I sprayed them all down with insecticidal soap and put down some dichotomous earth. I would rather deal with it now before it becomes a problem.

Lots of bees bumbling around my garden... its one of the main reasons I take such pleasure in keeping many flowers in my yard. Save the bees!

Looking good MallardDuck!

I have been waiting for a little amber to cut, and it looks like a couple more days would get my Auto Zamaldelica there, and a few more for the Auto Malawi. Unfortunately I had to chop tonight. The Malawi's main cola was filled with botrytis, and the Auto Zam had a little in its main cola too. :( Talk about a bummer. Not a total loss, as the rest of the plants look mold free. We will see after the initial drying I guess.

Don't let my misfortune discourage you though. I was pretty much asking for it to happen. Too many plants in a 3x3 tent and too many spores in the environment in the first place. Time for a new house I think. The basement is wet as often as it isn't. The roof leaked in the winter, feeding who knows what in the attic as far as mold goes. I haven't been able to keep my day and night temps within 10 degrees, more like 15 degrees difference. On top of that, I think it is just too prevalent around my house. All of my outdoor plots were hit hard with botrytis last fall too; lost about half the harvest. Even my late summer autos took a big hit, but not as bad as the fall harvest. I've never had such bad luck with mold at any other place before. Looks like it might be time to give up until I can find a better place that isn't swimming in spores.

Anyhow, I have high hopes for the uninfected buds. They really are looking great, and there is a lot of usable material left to enjoy.

What’s the hardness of your source water? Like the idea of vitamin C, but my source is pretty high ppm even with under sink can filter. So pH And chloramine aren’t the only issues.

Sorry to hear about your botrytis problems. Glad to hear you have been able to recover some and it wasn't a total loss... that would be heartbreaking.

The PPM of my water source is about 170ppm. TBH PPM is not something I usually worry about as I have never used bottled nutrients.
