    Update ! So the girls are doing good so far, especially the Easy Ryders, which are quite noticeable. The 3 Dwarfs are pretty far behind, they seem to be slow growers... The 1st Dwarf (3rd pic) was planted at the same time as the 1st easy ryder (last pic) , it has some catching up to do ha ha.

    looks great marcus. I'll definitely be watching since I have 10 autos in the same 2x4 space to work with

    I totally lost track of which day they're at but here's an Update!!

    They all seem to be doing quite well overall , the Dwarfs are slowly picking up...
    The ER's have noticeable progression every 8hours and are getting stinky :-o.

    Temps have been higher than usual (low to mid 80's) but the ladies are still thriving..
    Should cool down to the mid 70's in the next few days...

    Update! Alright so the ladies are doing well, no problems so far... Still unsure which day I'm at but somewhere in the 3rd week I believe.
    The 2 ER's are showing pre-flowers and 1 dwarf is as well. Feeding with 3/4 dose of FloraMicro, seems to be taking it well... I will wait until all the ladies show their pre flowers then I will make the switch to
    HPS, sometime later this week hopefully.. Feel free to comment !!

    Cheers!

    Can someone explain to me why the hell they are growing so slow?? It seems the more I look at other auto grows, by week 3 they're much bigger than mine are.. I know the dwarves were planted a few days after but they are still way small.. The ER's are doing good but I still feel like they should be much bigger by now.. The ERs are sitting at approx day 20 ish... I Just switched to HPS from MH this morning, hopefully that will help out a bit.. Also feeding with 3/4 dose of FloraMicro... I'm thinking it may be the Pro Mix Hp giving it a slower start due to not having nutes in it?? Any comments or advice would be good !

    never grown them strains i'm afraid ... i grew a couple of different types of autos before i grew a Barneys Farm™ Pineapple express... it seemed to take ages to take off..... three weeks and it looked just like yours ....and i'd heard glowing reports about the strain too....... them Whammo! it finished growing down and went Nuts .... its heaving with bud now and outgrowing anything i've grown before..
    i guess some strains grow differently ...your setup seems more then up to the job :-) , so i doubt if its anything wrong with what your doing....

    i dont give my autos any nutes for weeks and weeks, as they hate nute to death!... and if i use any at all its 1/4 strength bloom during flowering only

    (troutie edit... get that hps on them mate ... even though they are small they will be starting to show sex... and the more red spectrum the better)

    UPDATE! Alright so It's been a few days since my last post, for those of you reading here are the photos ! They pretty much doubled in size in the last 6 days. Although they could be in a much better state (or worst, really)
    I left thursday afternoon to go visit some family up North, and only came back on sunday; leaving the plants in my friend's hand. There's only so much you can explain over a telephone/txt message really, and for someone who's never grew anything, I suppose they could be worst ha ha! Basically overwatered, and added a full dose and a 1/4 of Floramicro to the mix; which in reality a 1/4 dose would have been sufficient at this stage; considering the Dwarves are still smaller... The plants seem to be showing a Magnesium problem due to ph lockout. I flushed the worst one "halfway" basically, leaving still a bit of nutrients in soil for the upcoming days..

    Now , I'm flying out to Amsterdam tonight for the week and will be back Sunday . Again leaving my plants in his hands.. Safer if he sticks strictly to water for the week. I premixed some floramicro + florabloom + Rhizotonic , incase the ER's need a second watering at a later point in the week...

    Next Update to fallow Sunday or Monday... Get ready for something nice or a total disaster - Fingers Crossed -

    Cheers!!

    Back from Amsterdam. Plants are looking good! Although there is one plant that I'm not sure how to diagnose...
    Tips are turning yellow they have some brownish spots on the leaves... The others are doing great.. Take a look!! One of them was fully dried, hence the droopiness...

    All Seems fine here, besides my one Easy Ryder who seems to have had an overwatering issue/nutrient deficiency.... New growth is doing well, although the bottom turned out yellow a bit.... Turned on the 600w 2 days ago, they're loving it !! :-P

    I think it's pretty good!! I know it dries out much faster.. The plant is much taller for sure!! I'll be growing with only Airpots for my next round. I haven't tried the smartpots yet, I may even mix them up, see what kind of results I get.

    Girls are doing great! The one ER is still in shock and having slow growth due to the (N) deficiency (potentially)... I watered last night with Floramicro + FloraBloom in a higher dosage, see what happens by this time tomorrow.

    Cheers!!
