    I have got a couple of girls in autopots (15liters) and they are filled with coco. I also have airdomes connected with approximately 4 litres of air to the bottom of every pot.

    I am aloud to grow 5 plants per person in the household so im on the safe side.

    I have got 4x600 watts of hps lights over the girls in a 3x3 meter area.
    The girls are autoflowering plants and i will let you guys guess the strain bongsmilie

    I wasnt sure whether or not i would be sharing this grow as its a bigger grow then what the ordinary guy has but i will try my best to grow the best weed that i can.

    Temps have been little on the low side and i did overwater the them when i was about to switch to the automatic feeding system and that resulted in what i believe was/is a copper deficiency.
    But we are doing okey, not perfect but it could be worse.

    Another thing i have done is that i have topped the girls at 7th node (14 maintops) as i want to try keep an even canopy without the need of alot of supercrop or lst further down the road, but i think i will need to do that on same plants anyway. Its the first time i ever top any plants so we will see how it goes.

    Here is where we are today..

    I think the stretch is just around the corner.
    Im keeping a Ph of ~6.1 and an EC of ~1.5.

    The copper-def was definitely from the girls beeing waterlogged. Let'd them dry out little from yesterday and they looked much better today.

    And today it was time for some supercropping, only snapped 2 branches during the karate-session.

    Thanks Beachwalker :cool:
    No hints, or i could toss you a bone... "Original"

    I like sheldon, he is special to say atleast.

    Sidenote - raised EC to 1.7 with a ph of 6.1

    Cheers, glad you handled it well. Some folks love that show so much they sort of lose their shit when I criticize it. Growing is much more important than that.

    Seriously clean setup, keep up the good work, love it!

    Hey and thank you. As we entering stretch the girls will demand more nutrients, magnesium for example. If you looking closely you can see some lighter-green stripes on the leafs - thats the lack of magnesium. So i rasied calcium, magnesium and the base-nutes a bit. And I'm growing in coco so i need to be right on with the nutes, or just a tiny bit ahead.

    These autopots is great. Just refill the tank and the system takes care of its self, the trays refills when the girls have drank up the water in there.

    I could definitely give you a hand setting it up and give you a tip or two, IF you go with coco.

    Yeah I was thinking of mixing the Canna coco with some hydroton for the auto pot. I appreciate the offer to help, when I am ready I will reach out to you. Right now trhere's a few other task that take priority as I make some changes to my setup.

    :peace:

    Oh geez I'm going to have to flip all the cards call the dogs and give up the challenge because I'll never guess anything about autoflowers, but I've grown a few freebies, a couple were pretty good too, looking forward to checking out your grow..!:weed:
    -good luck!

    "Oh geez" Haha! I totally understand how u mean :mrgreen: . Kind of when my wife ask for a precise piece of make-up... I have stopped with that and just giving her the whole bag instead. All guesses in one :bigjoint:

    But i think this grow could be a pretty good one. At least I'm trying my best to get the most out of it. Would be awesome if you stayed around. :joint:

    She's got some heritage from the Glue and Blue... and shes bad ass :leaf:

    I'm a huge fan of autos and been growing them for two years almost now. They never let me down. Lots of misconceptions on autos you just need to start with good genetics. Just like any other mj plant auto or not .I'm a really big fan of Mephisto for my autos .I've even used one to breed and have the first photo period female from that cross in flower right now . Good luck I'll be tagging along.

    :)

    Allright, nice. Autos have some pros and cons against photos but they work fine for me. Autos is easy to get from seed to weed, so is photos but if not keeping alot of clones then autos is a good choice
    Mephisto definitely have some good strains, however the strain im doing is from another breeder. Thank you very much bongsmilie

    (Did some more cropping today but will leave them for some days now so they can heal then spread them again)

    Nice garden Sheldon.

    Is all of your AP running off of 1 res?

    Gonna be quite a bit to trim come harvest.

    And @Evil-Mobo from what i've seen on the auto pots you may wanna skip the hydroton.It's all about "wicking" i guess we'll call it.Hydroton will not help pull your water/nutes up through the container just inhibit it.

    I was lookin at auto pots but i have an uneven concrete floor in the room.Don't think they'd work correctly.

    I actually would rather run the canna coco straight up, the instructions that came with the auto pot suggest mixing it with something like perlite or hydroton..........
