Northen Lights Auto "Stay at Home" Grow

My state officially imposed a stay at home order effective until April 10. I already have buddies asking if I have smoke, so I decided to setup a small grow.

Next is the hardest part, deciding what to grow. I knew I wanted it to be an auto for a quick harvest. So I got out my seed stash and sorted them into seven groups based on breeders, etc. Then I grabbed my D20 and gave it a roll. I rolled a 16, which was the pile with Norther Lights.

Female Seeds was kind enough to gift me some Northern Lights Auto seeds along with some other autos I tested for them. Not long ago, I won some Royal Queen Seeds Northern Lights Autos. Two of each hit the water last night.


I went outside into my shed and found four five-gallon fabric pots filled with a living organic soil (Coots mix). These were going to be used for an outdoor vegetable garden. I killed a couple of black widows grabbing the pots, good thing they move slow when it is cold.

These were super dry, so I mixed up a couple gallons of water with some lavender Dr. Bronner's soap as a wetting agent. I threw in some tweetmint enzymes as well to get the biology going.


I had everything I needed for a small 2x4 grow except for a tent, so I ordered a cheap one for the time being. When it gets here, I will be setting it up with my 250-watt Cree CXB3590 light a d a 4" fan with filter. More on that later.

Today I mixed top dressed the pots with some EWC and sowed a clover cover crop. Finally I mulched the top with rice hulls and watered them I with some EM1. Between that and the EWC, the microbiology should start kicking into high gear.


Trying a new idea with the autos. I've had good luck with gently transplanting autos in the past, and difficulty watering small plants in large pots. So here I have cut the bottom out of the blue cups and put them in the red cups with drain holes. When it comes time to transplant into the 5-gallon pots I will simply remove the red cup and transplant while still in the blue cup. This will also help prevent the cover crop from choking out the plants when they are young. I mixed up a seedling mix of 50% fresh worm castings and 50% rice hulls and filled the cups in preparation for the seeds.

The grow kit looks good. It is really a good time to grow some babies in door. Good luck.

The Royal Queen Seed NL (blue) both had tails, neither if the Female Seeds NL (green) did. I out them all in a mix of 50/50 EWC/rice hulls and watered them in.

The Royal Queen Seeds NL Auto (blue) have all sprouted, one is missing a cotyledon, but should pull through. Only one of the Female Seeds NL Autos (green) have sprouted, but there is still plenty of time. I got the 2x4 tent in, but I haven't put it together yet. For now these seedlings are just chilling in my [home] office green house, 60% RH and 72°F.

My daughter never goes down in my basement. It's got the big TV and the home office. While I was doing the floors in the other room, I setup the light in my old greenhouse. Of course, my daughter suddenly came down and was staring at them. So I planted some veggie seeds and left the packets there as a disguise. LMAO

Different auto NL comparison, you used your D20 to choice... how can I not follow this.
I started playing with basic "bio growing" now and i look interested

Got the 2x4 tent setup in the 4x4 veg room, that was a bit tricky to get setup. It's got a 4" fan and filter and a 250-watt Cree CXB3590 light. Since only three of the autos popped, I put three 5-gallon pots in there.


The RQS NL Auto on the left is doing some odd leaf twisting, but otherwise they are doing well. I suspect they will take off under the bigger lights.
