Knifemaker's first grow

Hello everyone and welcome to my grow diary.
Being almost a total newbie to growing cannabis I will greatly appreciate any advice, suggestions or comments on my journey.

I've had some minor experiance with helping my dad out with his outdoor grows almost 20yrs ago now, but they weren't anything fancy just a few holes dug in the ground, lined with plastic, filled with potting soil. We would water every 2 days and feed with generic 20-20-20.
Thats it.
Lets get started....

What strain is it: Gelato Autoflower, zkittles autoflower and Northern lights autoflower
Is it Indica, Sativa or Hybrid? mostly indica
Is it in Veg or Flower stage? Seedling/veg
Soil or Hydro? Promix hp
If soil... What size pot? 5Gal fabric pots
Size of light? Mars hydro sp-250
Is it aircooled? Yes
Temp of Room/cab? 25°c lights on 20°c lights off
RH of Room/cab? 40-50%
How often are you watering? When the pots are bone dry
Type and strength of ferts used? Advanced nutrients m-g-b + hobbyist grow bundle (voodoo juice, big bud, B-52, and overdrive. Might get a thing of bud candy as well. I also have a thing of General Hydroponics CALiMAGic

Hi Dimodz, I got all 3 auto strains from Seedsman.
Growing them indoors in a 2'x4'x7' tent under a mars hydro sp-250 led light. I've got 2 weeks of pictures and journal to copy over here so bear with me a moment and I will get it caught up :-)
Have a knife day

Here are some pictures of my setup

Dropped seeds into cups of RO water to begin Germination. Only dropped one of each of the 3 strains. All 3 seeds sank to the bottom after about 3 hours in the water.

May 4
All 3 seeds split open and have a half to three quarter inch tap root sticking out. All 3 get planted directly into 5gal fabric pots that had been pre moistened with straight RO water 24 hours prior.
May 6 am
Checked on them this morning and the NL has come up, the Gelato is just breaking the surface and the zkittles is still hiding. Hopefully it will be up by the time I get home from work.


May 6 pm

ust got home from work and checked on the littles. NL and Gelato are both up and loving the light, but zkittles who hadn't yet poked her head up when my wife checked on them for me at noon, was entirely out of the soil laying full length on top of the promix. Didnt look withered or shriveled at all so I gently poked a hole and re burried it up to the cotyledon leaves and hopefully it won't die.... should I drop a new seed now or is there a cha ce this ine will survive? Any idea why it jumped out of the ground?

Well, its looking like zkittles is going to pull through. This morning she was starting to stand up and has greend up nicely.
However the temperature in the tent hit 84°f so looks like I'm going to have to figure out how to get it cooler in there. I've already got my exhaust fan running, a fan blowing fresh air in from a bottom vent and an oscilating fan stirring up the air inside. The tent is currently venting the exhaust into the bedroom the tent is in so I might need to cut a hole in the closet ceiling and vent my exhaust into the attic.... I cracked the window in that room for now to see if it helps any....

thats a nice looking set up you have and im interested in seeing how it grows over time
like dimodz said, just hook a few things up and you are ready to rip
autos are a good way to start and you should have some nice buds a few months after you bury your first seeds
good luck man!

Update day 4
Morning 420 fam.
Not much to report as yet. The ladies are chugging along with Gelato the clear leader of the group. Still haven't had to water them yet, waiting for the pots to be dry first.
Zkittles seems to have recovered from her adventure above ground but is decidedly smaller than her tent mates.
