    So this is my very first time growing
    (Be gentle)
    I decided to go with Blue Dream'matic by fastbuds (auto flowering & feminised)
    Due to the weird weather we've been having I have had to grow my plant indoors & outdoor... outdoor when the sun is out and indoor when it rains at night...she is in a tank under a grow light. Anyways since this is my first time growing I decided to document her journey!

    (Two days of germination before the taproot was long and ready to go)

    (April 2nd she popped out of the soil and didn't need my help getting the seed shell off)

    (Both of these were taken today April 13th)

    So...is she looking ok?
    When does her stem start to get thicker? She gets a fair bit of wind but any small gust of wind and she bends right over lol so I am a bit worried about it. If she looks healthy, I'm happy but I'd figure I'd ask the masters :)

    The stem will thicken with time ... One thing I noticed u have no perlite in your soil ... That will create problems later ,other than that she looks good.. What kind of soil,light,and nutrients are I using

    She can take high ppms. I had some salt build up and read the ppms(I think 500 scale at first) at 2200 and she had burned tips slightly. She can take stress well. Topping and defoliation dont slow her down at all.

    Thanks for the replies :weed:
    The soil I am using is Osmocote plus trace elements professional seed rising & cutting mix. I read that you wanna be careful when using this stuff because of the water storing aspect, but I am pretty careful making sure the soil stays the right kind of moist so the roots don't rot. The light she gets most would be sun..because of daylight savings the sun pops out at 5am here so I get her outside as soon as possible. The indoor light (and bare with me because I am broke as fuck at the moment lol) is actually a reptile big ass light supplied to a massive ...I mean massive tank... I use it for about 4 hours and then she gets the night light as well ...(I'd be so pissed if my reptiles ate it!!!) this is temporary but she seems to be growing well for the moment until I can get her something better and that will be pretty damn soon since I know this girl will no longer fit in a week or two IMG_4505.JPG IMG_4506.JPG

    So I fucked up and discovered that she is meant to be in a 5 gallon pot. I was trippin thinking that she was doomed since I just learned that moving her stunts her growth... I was worried that leaving her in her current pot would potentially also stunt her potential for being her big lady bushy self...
    I made the risky decision to transplant my auto flower.

    The best news of all!!!
    Today we cut the bottom of the old pot out and I was thrilled to see that her roots were not anywhere to be seen so all we did was centre her out in the new pot with some new soil (went to the store and brought back some perlite which I was missing from before)

    Once we cut the bottom out we gently pushed her out and covered her up ...I am so juiced to say since her transplant in the better soil and bigger pot she has perked up!! She looks pretty happy like she is unaware we moved her!

    Soil looks good with that perlite in there should help dry her out and give her the oxygen that she needs ... Also when doing autos in a big pot like that u wanna just water in a circle around the stem and as time goes by making your circle bigger... This technique will cause roots to go looking for water and making your root mass bigger

    Just so everyone knows I plan on growing this girl with just the resources of good soil,sun,purified water that has had the chlorine removed from it by sitting it in the sun. (Kinda like when you have too much chlorine in your pool and need to give it a day with sun to deplete chlorine to balance it out) I have so far not given her any nutrients (just what's in the soil already)

    My question is has anyone grown a healthy plant without fucking with vitamins and shit other people give to their plant? All natural?

    She is looking pretty damn healthy so far :) just letting her do her thing...

    You can grow without using any nutes like phosphorous, potassium, kelp, fulvic acid, ect but you wont maximize your yield.

    I use distilled water so i add Cal mag / 5 parts fulvic acid 2 parts kelp and a sprinkle of epson salts in every watering and then will add phosphorous early in flower then switching to potassium late into flower. Just monitor your plants prior to every watering and add whatever the plant is showing its deficient on.
    I am no expert by a long shot, but i have had success with what i have listed above. I have been using NPK industries nutes .. if you go on youtube , NPK has some really useful videos on how to use. I have heard that kelp4less is cheaper btw, but again im using NPK industries stuff bought from ebay sellers.
