Autoflower bubblelicious Cfl Grow. Help me get this right !
Hey guys just marking my spot for my autoflower grow.
this is only my second grow ive managed to pull off 8 plants so far 2 with nice bud formation and plenty of crystals the rest were what id call average home grown but they all came from bagseed so had no complaints.!
Ive since seen how much better good genetics are after taking a cutting from my neighbours kc36 and compairing root growth to that of bag seed clones.
Ive previously been growing under a 250w hps and upgraded to a 400w but im struggling with heat issues hense the switch to cfl.
Ive order x5 bubblelicious auto flowers from barnies and ive ordered a 300w blue cfl from basement lighting to start them off. I plan too order a further 300w blue cfl and x2 300w red cfl's on friday.
im unsure if this will be enough or if i should go for duel spec bulbs ? always have the hps for back up tho.
I need to choose if im going into soil or pebble and water but have no pump atm. Im not sure what would suit auto's best.
I also need to decide on some nutes for this grow. Im going to be using the wardrobe from my previous grow.
This is only my second grow so any pointers on autos nutes or cfl will be much appreciated !
Sounds like this should be intriguing. Sub'd up.
In regards to your medium, it depends on ur preference and comfort level. As for nutes; to each his own I usually never exceed 50% of he reccomended dose. Veg nuts could be optional l, but I start to use in week 3, and then flower nutes from week 5/6 and on.
Subbed i've had an eye on the bubblelicious, cool to see how you get on with cfls. I'm gonna go with a dual spec but probably the 125w, money problems etc. but with some small extra bulbs surrounding. Good luck!
So ive just been sat here dieing for a shit for nearly 4 hours.
I didnt wanna miss my delivery and ive just found this.......
Your order is due for delivery
between 13:17-14:17 today
fuck never knew techno was so damn good !
So my delivery arrived bang on time too ! will defo use the same supplier courier service !
Here's the pics of the wardrobe its a fairly large size i have the dimensions scribbled somewhere, as you can see i have a small issue with light like , i previously used tape but it drew attention to the cab so going to add some wood to the back of the door to solve the problem.
Must say my item was extremely well packed stupid foam thingys everywhere i tried so hard too :P
Well here it is ! and well fuck me i never expected it to be this big ! seems like an utter monster compared to all these 42 w cfls i see lol thought id get a shot near my houselight lol.
The 2 pictures at the bottom of the page are of my kc36 cutting, the eagle eyed will notice it already has hair this is due to the cut being taken in early flower stage , it seems to have switched back to veg nicely tho and is doing well. before i put the cutting into soil the roots were longer than the plant itself. Im not sure if this cutting will go into this grow but for now whilst its my only plant ill document it , its currently sat outside chilling in my deck chair enjoying the sun :P

I had planned to just hang the cfl from its lead , looking at the size of this fucker im thinking its going to be too much stress on the wire. So im going to have to support it somehow :S ideas please ! joys of new equipment :P
if you've got the cash to splash get the reflector for it. ive just replace mine and have a spare one if you want a cheap option? otherwise get some garden wire and strip the plastic off it tie it through a couple of the loops at the end and to the bar at the top of the cupboard. or any wire that's obviously not plastic coated haha
