First time grow - Pakistan Ryder Autoflowering, CFL!!
Here starts my little quest.
- Day 1 - 26/03/2009:
Started germinating 2 of my 3 feminized seeds. Paper towel method, covered with a cup upside down and put inside a cardboard box.
- Day 2 - 27/03/2009:
No sign of roots. Put one of them inside a pre-heated owen, about 34 Celsium degree
- Day 3 - 28/03/2009:
Keeping germination medium moist. Donīt know what will happen.
- Day 4 - 29/03/2009:
Root tips showing!! One of them about 2 inches long!!
The other, the one I kept inside the owen and kept the owen warm from time to time, showed a tiny root. This root not being white at all - more of a brownish yellow colour, and about 1/3 inch long.
PUT BOTH 1/2 INCH DEEP UNDER SUBSTRACT SOIL.
Watered. No lights at all now, only some sunlight through the window.
- Day 6 - 31/03/2003:
The first seed, the one with longer, white and healthir-looking root-tip came to suface level! Tiny little leafs, 2 leafs, yellow-brown colour. They look very fragile, and arenīt open at all.
I Put 3 CFLS, 6500k and 1250 lumens each near my pots.
One CFL over the big pot and the other 2 over the small pot with the seedling.
No signs of seedling in the big pot, the one with the yellowish mini root-tip seed planted
- Day 7 - 01/04/2009:
This morning, two wonderful suprises in my grow room:
1. The seedling in the small pot, Adrienne, became green! the leaves were open, there were 2 new little leaves and she seems happy under only 2 6500k CFLs, about 2 inches far away from her leaves.
2. The seed in the big pot, Amellie, became a seedling above the soil surface! A fragile yellowish one, like Adrienne the day before.
I put some little water on them and left home to work..... story continues latter, WITH PICTURES!
Day 8 - F**** UP GROWROOM
- Could'nt set up my grow room as I planned. Only have 3 6500k 1250 lumens, 23 watt each CFLs. Dont have white or reflective material around, so my 2 babies are getting poor lightining.
The seedlings are virtually the same size as 2 days ago. Perhaps i'm little anxious (I dont have medicine right now, since im still growing them ).
UNDER THE SUN
- Since my lighting setup is poor, I decided to put the plants outdoors today.
Outdoors during the day and indoor CFL during the night.
And it is a hell of a good sun here in Fantasy Island. 28-31 Celsium degrees most days, and we are in middle of autumn. I love our sub-tropical climate. Letīs see if the plants love it too when I arrive home today night! Pictures soon....
i'll be watchin this dude
Here they are...
Day 9 - April 3rd - PICTURES!!!
This is Adrienne, the unhealthy-looking seedling (a clearly over-watered baby)
The seedling came to soil surface 3 days ago. Now look to your own left thumb nail. Her foliage is more or less the size of it. Tiny little bastard...
Amellie, looking healthier, bus as tiny as Adrienne
1115 lumens, 6500k, 21 watts CFL bulb
It ISN'T a grow room nor a grow tent...
...it is just 6 CFLs, a fan and 2 buckets...
...on a shelf inside a small room!
The almighty $10 hurricane-making Chinese machine refreshing Adrienne, the fragile overwatered tiny thing!
Little Amellie and her big bucket. I don't think the $2 soil is as good as the packet says...
Curly Amellie streching a bit for LIGHT! She is under a 1250 lumens, 23 watter 6500k.
I have some 2700k CFLs aswell. 3 6500k and 3 2700k - 6 bulbs. Will upgrade soon, as light is never too much!
Thank you all who read this post. Posts with suggestions, ideas and info are always welcome! Do you guys think those autoflowering indica-dominated strains are doing well? I'm afraid they should be bigger... I may have to control my easy-watering right hand!

Oh, I almost forgot... there is also Unsexed Bitch, a third plant growing outdoors. Looks healthy as hell, and unlike the other 2 it is a Thai Super Skunk seedling, from the free seed packet our beloved seed vendor provides....
Day 10 - Adrienne goes hydro!
I made a cheap ass bubbler for the sick plant. Transplanted her to her new growing medium - coconut fiber and vermiculite. Her root was very small.
The other plant, Amellie, is doing very good on soil under the CFLs.
Her foliage is brigth green, almost lemon color.
Adriene is still small, she doesnt grows... her color is a dark green, and some yeallow spots began to show on her leaves. Anyone has any idea about that? I put her in the cheap bubbler DWC hydro system... and added SOIL FERILIZER in the water mix. Yeap... i'm going hydro using soil fert. But a good fert, contains everything from NPK to minor and micro nutrients (Iron, Boron, Copper, Mag, Zinc and all that stuff...). i added only 2/5 of the recommended quantity in the fert label. Hope this works.....
Tomorrow, pictures of the new bubbler.
Do you expert Hydro people think she will do good with SOIL fertilizer in the DWC water? I hope so... I don't have the money to buy Hydro ferts right now
Day 11/Day 12
- Had to disasemble my grow setup, but for today only.
- Bought plywood to make a decent growbox. 3' wide x 2' high x 1' deep.
Will maintain the 6 23 watt CFLs:
3 6500k, 3 2700k - 1250 lumens each.
For today, the plants are outside, outdoors - but today is not a sunny day here in Fantasy Land - cloudy, a little rain. The plants are secure from the rain, under a roof outdoors.
- The 1st Pakistan Ryder, Adrienne, is looking very sick. Her leafes are so small, and began to become yellow.
- The 2nd plant, Amellie, Pakistan Ryder is healthier, is growing, her leaves turned from lemon green to dark deep green, and are getting bigger.
- The 3rd plant, Unsexed Bicth, thai s. skunk, is the heathier looking. Irocanily I dont give too much attention to it, and left it to grow outdoors in a small 1 gal. pot.
Oh, yesterday night I added some vermiculite in Amellie's and U.Bitch's soil. Amellie has the biggest root of the 3 plants.
Today I'll transplant Adrienne to some vermiculite-rich soil. She still is in a F*** Up Hydro bubbler with soil nutrients. She isnt growing at all and I think is nute stressed (yellowing leaf borders and no growth at all).
yea man keep use posted i was lookin at this strain sumthing very appeallin about growing a mini hash plant! oh and what is the finishing height ment to be on it?
I AM WHAT SOCIETY MADE ME
Day 14 from seed, day 7 from the day seedling popped up from the soil.
Adrienne is badly sick, yellowed leaf borders and no real growth at all. I replanted her in a new 3 gal. bucket with 50% vermiculite 50% substract soil and left her outdoors... shiny days those days.
Amellie on the other hand is looking VERY good! healthy, strong-looking steam, dark green sturdy leafs about - 3x bigger than Adrienne. She is living under 3 23 watt 6500K CFL + 3 23 watt 2700K = 7320 lumens total.
Unsexed Bitch, the Thai S. Skunk stills outdoors and seems happy. Shortest than Amellie, fragile steam, but with 6 mini leafs, while Amellie has ony 4 leafs. Its color is brighter, lemon green.
Will put photos today, now it's FOR SURE!
