    So this is my first auto, i got a feminized afghan kush ryder seed from single seed centre, put it to germinate 2 days ago, i saw the root coming out if the shell yesterday and put it in the soil. Today i see the very tip popping out so were all good so far, ive got under a 55 watt cfl for now, gonna change to hps for flowering, and in a 3 gallon pot, i was just wondering what pointers i can get to ensure maximum yield and density?

    More info about your set up. Watts of HPS? environment? tent? soil? nutrients? for a start

    I just need to know what u would reccoment for high yield and density, what i have doesnt matter for now, either way ill probably change my methods according to what info i can get to get the high yield and density
  4. Hey I am germinating akr right now also. World of seeds suggests a 20/4 light/dark cycle. Any other information on growing will be found in other forum pages. Personally, I suggest 3-5 gallon pots and I use fox farms ocean forest soil with the trio pack of ff nutes. However, there is so many different options when it comes to mediums and nutes you should really do quite a bit of research. As far as yield goes, I would suggest you use a 5 gallon pot and just follow a good schedule when feeding and watering it. Autoflowering plants are quick hitters so even the most experienced growers can only get a max yield of about 2-2.5 ounces. However, the beginner shouldn't expect much more then 1-1.5 ounces. This entirely depends on a variety of elements such as light lumen, temperature, and humidity. Lastly, look into providing your plants extra CO2 if you want to increase your yield to the max.

    keep the light close. the temperature as close to 70 - 75F. constantly keep the air moving. Don't even feed it(fertilizer), if this is your first grow.

    Spray the seed shell with water with a mister REALLY good and CAREFULLY remove it with tweezers if it's still on. I've done it at 3 days old. Having it on delays the seedling. Stems always look weird young. It hasn't developed.

    IMAG0076.jpg Another update, now about 16 days from germination, growing nicely, kind of short though. It is my first auto though so im assuming thats normal, it also already has that dank kushy smell to it when u smell it directly, feel free to leave feedback thanks. By the way last update was at 12 days from germ. Not 19 sorry bout that
