First grow: lowlife auto ak47 feminized
Hello there, I'm a total newbie and I would appreciate as much useful info as possible.
I don't have much space therefore I have chosen autoflowering plant since they usually tend to be smaller than non-auto. Though it looks like auto ak47 can grow rather big and now I have realized that my space is too small (I'm using ex-pc box). I've red a lot of controversial posts about autoflowering plants and micro growths
Pot: 36x15x12 cm (14x6x5 inches)
Box free space: 39x18x40 cm (15x7x16 inches)
Distance from soil to lamps - 28cm (11in)
3x 21w CFL, 2700k spectrum, all make about 3780lm
Soil - soil for cactus, bought in local store, 85% compost, 9% peat, 6% sand, mixed with baked clay pieces.
Conditioning - there's a small ventilator, you should be able to see it in the photos.
Light - 20/4
Temp - 27 C (80 F) day/ 24 C (75 F) night
Nutes for vegetation - BIOPON foliage plant fertilizer (http://www.bros.pl/?s=products&lang=2&brand=2&t=57) 8-3-4 NPK
Records so far:
2010.12.28 10:40 put the seed between two damp sheets of paper
2010.12.30 10:20 seed germinated. Planted it in soil.
2011.01.01 15:10 Sprouted! 1cm height
2011.01.02 19:40 2 day. 3cm
2011.01.04 15:30 4 day. Replant. Added more soil and watered with 0,5l water + 1/4 nutes.
2011.01.05 22:30 5 day. Replantation was ok, the plant looks good. 4cm after replantation.
2011.01.09 20:20 9 day. 6cm. Watered in the morning 0,5l. Looks like third floor is coming.
2011.01.11 14:00 11 day. 0,5l water with ¼ nutes. 4th floor is coming.
I have some questions, I'd like you to answer:
My main problem now is - what can I do with the space I have and what are the best possible outcomes? Or I should definitely move my plant to a bigger box? Maybe SCROG or LST would help somehow?
Also, I've chosen 20/4 light cycle since that is recommended by breeders, but I've red in some grow journals that people change to 12/12 or 18/12 even though it's an auto. Should I switch as well?
And am I using nutes too early? I was afraid that the soil won't have enough nutrients. The plant looks fine though.
The photos are done an hour ago, so - Day 11

So, I've watered it again (O,5l) in the morning and decided to start LST'ing it. I've used a hook that I cut out of wire.
Now I'm wondering if hooks in the soil will be enough or maybe I will need to tie them to the pot...
Day 25 (middle of 4th week)
Today I've started giving nutes for flowering Hope they won't do any harm I'm a bit worried because the tips of some leaves turned light light yellow. You should be able to see it in picture Day 25 (7)
