    I keep reading stories, how autos are very touchy with nutes, & n burn is common, my soil is 50% good potting mix , 50% good garden soil , with loads of broken down organic matter & manure, so i best let nature do its stuff
    But im wondering about flowering stage, using a npk around 12-6-25, which is quite low in nitrogen
    These auto's are a bit larger than most up to a meter, & according to the breeder can take up to 80 days, so im thinking they may need a little help, comments please

    That's a little high in nitrogen for flower stage. Your pk should be higher than your nitrogen at this stage.

    If I don't fly imma die anyway

    4xmarshydro300 tight to the top of my tent .I got a 10/90 home cooked soil /perlite I don't usually us a nute but I do condition the pots with recharge once a week with ever wathering I don't pH (I check once in a wial )my plants are healthy and growing well .I also have cs and I'm free jacking seeds on my blackberry autos from fast buds .I use smart pots .but I've also used pop bottles gasstation cups it seems that skill only comes in to play when things pop up problem s and such any ways I'm stones pics on the way after wife wake

    Just a quick update, these 2 little Autopounders by Autoseeds, in garden soil & potting mix, plain plastic pots, & a 600 hps, now at day 36 from germ, & just starting to show signs of flower, yes they have had a bit of LST (on advise from an experienced Auto grower) at 14 days i changed there light scheldge to 7-1 , to try & keep an even temp, & no ill effects at all,
    The breeder does say its an 80 day Auto & up to a metre, yes they have had a few nutes, Maxigro

    Yeah good point, i have 1 of those PH test metrs, & using tank water , its around 6-7 which is suppose to be ok for soil, but when i mix the fert, it says its low, but ive been told from an experienced grower , to leave it for 24 hours & test again, & it does change to a good level, so that is good advise, when i test the soil with my PH probe thingy its about 6.5 so happy days, or so the charts say, & thats all i know about PH, but 1 thing i have learnt is this LST, it is amazing , they love it, & the earlier u start the better, i see a lot of grows on here that dont get it, & some of there reported yields are very low.., ie 1-1.5 oz, you may as well go with a photo if thats the case IMO.............but hey im not there yet so i aint bagging anything

    If you are in dirt I wouldn't worry one bit about the ph of the water or the runoff. LST is a very useful way to grow for sure. If you can get those bud sites even, you will do real well.

    You're doing great Poon. Keep doing what you're doing. It's working!!

    You sell your seeds. This has been a great read with lots of help. I have been growing for 9 years and I m still learning. Kiss is a great idea I m going to switch my nutes. .

    Thx H.L.G., but im not sure wether ive dun good or bad...........there was a heap of little side shoots that wanted to flower as well & down low on the bush were not a lot of light will get, you know , spindly little things about 2-5 inches long, so they copped the chop, theory being , there only gunna take from the others & return Z, also any real small flower was removed, especially lower down the plant, yes or no, it just made sence , to me anyway

    Just an FYI. One standard bag of FFOF will fill 7 one gallon pots and 1 two gallon pot. And a few red cups. :bigjoint:

    Yes there are 3 plants in the 2 gallon.

    Sometimes I just let the plant go because of laziness. But ya. Chop that lower stuff early on so the energy goes towards the buds that mean something closer to the light. If not, you will have a bunch of crap down low to deal with at harvest.

    Ya why not. I was thinking about making them into palm trees and braiding them together or something funky like that.

    It's just what happens when you have too many seeds. Lol :bigjoint:
