WelderDan tries Autos

OK, I'll be honest, in the past I've been sceptical about autos. I looked down on them. Mostly because I heard bad things about potency.

But I've been paying attention to them because I see a lot of people growing nice plants and the reports of good quality.

So when I got the opportunity to do some testers for Afterthought Autos, I took the plunge.

So in this thread, I will document my experience with 2 strains, Magnum Opus (Big Bud x Ogre) and Tomsk Petrol (Tokarev x Russian Auto)

I only started two due to light limitations.

The setup: a small cheap 24 x32 x 72 tent. It came with a 300 watt UFO type light (I plan on updating that as soon as I can swing a Mars Hydro) and a filter kit with carbon filter and fan. I'll get around to pics of that eventually.

The medium: basic organic mix of peat, pearlite and mushroom compost that was amended with worm castings.

Nutrients are Blood meal, bone meal and potassium sulfate that I premixed with the medium and let it set for a couple of weeks.

Seeds were planted 11/14 directly in the pot that they will grow in.

I took a quick pic, but nothing to really show, the Magnum Opus has sprouted, but you gotta look real close. The Tokarev hasn't popped yet, if I see no action I'll put another in the medium.

Magnum Opus in the front



Weekly updates to follow. I'll eventually post picks of the entire setup, but I wanted to at least get pics from the time they sprout so I can document the grow from sprout to harvest.

Thanks for stopping by. Any thoughts, suggestions or criticisms are welcome.

You made the right choice on who's autos to start with! You will have potent bud once done. I found AfterThought autos the most potent plants of all autos I've tried.

Nice grow!

I cannot add anything useful except that I also enjoyed the AfterThought autos I grew.

And honestly. My fuck ups turn to gold so much the thought of fuckin up don't even bother me. So I keep it auto when I'm stepping through a portal. I know that sounds strange but, strange beats normal.

Right on, Lester and Agent- thanks for kudos.

Welder Dan...right choice!! If they turn out to be male (1 or both), plant again! Magnum Opus is a favorite of a USA seed bank owner- loves it!

OK, last update was on 11/27, so it's been 6 days.

1st up is Magnum Opus, it's on it's 2nd set of leaves with almost no stretch



Next up is the Tokarev. It's one day behind in sprouting, but is essentially the same size.



Not a lot to show, I know, but once they develop a nice root system they will start shooting up. Nice and dark green right, looking healthy. More pics as they develop. This camera is not the greatist. It does have close up settings, but since there isn't much to show at the moment it will do. I'll post up better pics once they are bigger.
