First of all let me thanks the Sweet Seeds staff for providing some free seeds. Delivery was fast! I asked for 3 packs of seeds, all autoflowering, because I like to grow autos and I think that they are the best solution looking at my available space and my needs in terms of weed supply.
I have a 40x40x120 tent powered by 62W of SILs (Screw in leds aka e27 Led bulbs with the globe removed). A 140 mc/h in-line extractor push the air through a carbon filter that makes the job and the intake is passive. There is a small fan to moving the air inside the tent. I grow in soil, that I started to amend and recycle from the last runs. I use a little bit of Biobizz nutrients, usually during the flowering. I told my setup was minimal!
Having not enough surface to valorize 3 different genetics, I’m going to use only 2 of them for this contest. +Speed Auto seeds will be kept for future grows and projects. I soaked in water 2 Bloody Skunk and 2 Cream Mandarine seeds. I choose the Cream Mandarine because I like citric smells and I heard good feedback on this strain. The Bloody Skunk because I never tried a purple strain, I really hope for a proper dark phenotype.
My plan is to plant them in 4 1 Liter pots, then between the 2nd and 3rd week transplant one plant for strain in my 10 Liter pots. Remaining 2 plants will be used for different purposes.
Thanks to everybody! Happy that you like the start, I’m liking it too. Seeds were quite vigorous indeed.
I followed my usual procedure: after 24 hours into the water, seeds were moved between humid towels inside a box, on top of my modem.
After 12 hours they showed their little roots. Cream Mandarine ones were slightly faster. So I put seeds in the soil.
Today is the next day and all seeds sprouted. Let’s call today DAY 0. From tomorrow let’s start the count to the harvest day.
