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.

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.
