    Almost perfect timing, I have been prepping for my next grow which will be my first auto grow. Using AK48 & Jock Horror from Nirvana but we just started germinating this morning, which would put me a week ahead if these sprout. May I still join in? I look forward to being privy to so many different growers advice. ☮

      TY Retodd ~ I was thinking of using the AK as it's listed as the easier grow, opinions? Still new to indoors & my first auto grow.
      Anyone have an opinion on AK48 vs Jock Horror? Going to grow both but need to choose which will be in the showdown. I use air-pots but am trying coco coir for the first time or should I stick with my own soil mix? I have vivosun 36"x 20"x 62" tent & viperspectra 450W LED (if this grow is success I get new stuff!!!) All advice is welcomed 😃

      GlitterFarm I'd fo with the ak47s if I were you. I'm growing Blue Tooth as the contest plant which is a relatively low yielder. I will also be growing ak47s which are easier and have higher yields. But not my first auto grow so trying to challenge myself more. The ak48 is a good yielder and easy to grow so I'd say stick to that for the contest.

      As far as substrate if you want to try something new go for it. But there is always a learning curve.

      GlitterFarm Don’t feel bad, this is only my second indoor grow. The only thing I would say personally is to use your own soil mix. Some have had good luck, but I have friends with a lot of bad luck with the coco coir. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. This past year I used air pots both indoor and outdoor. They saved my ass on my outdoor grow. So many of us lost massive amounts from bud rot and I was able to move the plants to my porch, but still lost a lot from rot.
      Anyway, I would ask too that you would grow the AK. I’m hoping that with this competition we have a large variety to compete with. I’m sure OJH is using the real jack herrer, so that’s great. We’re going to be growing genetic cousins. Jack has huge buds and huge quantities. I’m hoping to get close with the jock.

    Have some new genetics and more Kind soil AND sohum soil coming in the mail.

    Would you guys rather see a Kind Soil+Roots Organic grow or a Sohum Soil grow? I'm up for whatever just thinking of if anyones interested in one or the other more??

    Strains getting added (not guaranteed by the 1st so will start the Lemon OG if the dont arrive in time, or will just start a little later of i get enough interest in 1 strain) All are from Puff Puff Pass Genetics. Seen very good things out of them in my FB group. I'll be picking up, (all autos) ButterKing, Fruity Pebbles OG, HeadRush, Kosher13, Orange Cookies, Strawberry Cough, and Urban Voodoo.

    Let me know of your interested in seeing any over the other!! If not it's the LOG for this comp.

    Thanks All!!

      If you use the KindSoil, your probably got a great chance to win the contest, it's awesome stuff, just don't order it from Amazon, buy it from Phil directly. It's alot fresher.
      And good luck in the contest BurningTeddy

    Here is what a description of the Blue Tooth Auto from msnl. It's not the full description though. But you get the idea. The claims of 200 to 300 grams a m/sq puts it at the lowest claimed yield of any plant I've grown. But I am growing it for the flavor. You can see more on it at MSNL Seeds autos. As long as I get the flavor as described I'll be very happy. Anyways just showing what I picked. Will have 3 of those and 3 MSNL ak47 autos in a 4x4x8ft space. Only 1 blue tooth will be in the contest unless someone wants to compare vs an ak47. If they do I'll list an ak47 as thing two.

      I had an auto that produces two colas about 6 inches high and wide best tasting smoke I've ever had sometimes they are worth it

    I’m still up in the air now......I wrote nirvana about which I should choose. I have some of their blue cheese autos too. I just want to win...lmao. Plus, no one has listed them as their choice. So, blue cheese or jock horror🤔. Maybe one of you guys would know which would have the largest colas and largest harvest on average...

    Got some auto's ordered from new420guys. The black friday deal of auto regs. Sourlowryder2, GDP Blast, Sour60, La berry fruta and i have autos from seedsman that are amnesia haze, kush auto and sour diesel haze. Now i just need to pick what to grow. What do you guys think i should do?

    Going to grow them in 3 gal fabric pots with coco choir. Nutrients will be GH Flora Trio. Will be using cfls for seedlings or cheap leds and then switching to a HLG-600H quantum board 620w but says its equivalent to a 1000w hps.

    Also im growing 4 Sour diesel haze atm and their over 4 weeks old and still not flowering. Gonna wait another week or 2 then switch it to 12/12. So dont know if i should trust the seeds from seedsman.

      Cloud. I've grown most every auto seed Paul at New420Guy has for sale,
      I've never had a bad experience with any of his seeds, I've had a couple that didn't germinate, but that was my fault.
      The Headbanger an Chems Sister both finished in 65days.
      He doesn't have Chems Sister anymore though.
      The BlueHaze im growing now from Paul is 70days old today, an Will be ready by next Saturday
      GoodLuck with whatever you choose, you are gonna do fine, with any of them.
      Have a nice evening Cloud.

    Ok well all work is out of my way. Thanksgiving is over and the rest of the year is peaceful. The Battle of the Beards is now on auto pilot so I am ready. Seven more days if I can count properly and the fun shall begin.

    Tomorrow I will be cleaning and rearranging the basement. Getting everything ready so it all goes smoothly on this end. I cant wait to start seeing some plants and start reading advice.

    I am hoping that everyone in the grow has not only a smooth and problem free grow but that everyone has the best grow of their lives. Just remember that the most important part is to have fun. Smack talk is encouraged but lets please keep it at that. Fun boasting, bragging, showing off. There will be no true fighting or intentionally trying to hurt or offend anyone. If something is said that is out of order please PM me or someone you trust to clear it up. Do not bring it up in the open. I seriously doubt that will happen but just dont want people to feel unwelcome.

    Do we have a headcount? A list of names? I'm not good at keeping up with that stuff so if no one wants to we will just roll with it as we go.

    Back to me, currently I only plan on entering "thing one" which will be Blue Tooth from MSNL. I will be growing 3 but only the one named thing one will count. If someone wants me to add a "thing two" I will be starting 3 ak47 autos from msnl at the same time. I can add one but only If someone specifically wants me to. I can give reports on them without entering one.

    Anyways just remember the long list of rules:
    1: pick and label a "thing one." If you want to add other strains as thing two three etc. go for it.

    2: Be honorable.

    Rules covered. Get ready. Have fun. And let the smack talk begin

        But there is plenty of great growers on here , I'd name then to, but I do not want to leave anyone out, like I'm sure I would do.

        Redwasp. D.A.A.S.69 9fingerleafs oldjarhead100 1st .I don’t consider myself a master grower 2nd yes good buddies there ARE Master growers on GWE but they lurk or are athletically visible for people in need
        right 9fingelraf...help novice growers endlessly without bravado. Just to be clear...there are people on GWE that don’t parade and GWE has lost very viable informative bull goose growers masters or no ..I miss them too
        SO: as I have grown photo fems, regular seeds sexed to fems, and 1 lowrider that sucked thuroughly...I offer being careful in making all things equal: autos vs photo feminized vs sexed to female calculated over time , yield and THEN the SMOKE..the kind and Quality of the high...we’d have to colaborate agree and share bud to all who participate for the final vote. And no I can’t (endoure) another proving...although...hear my love not dis buddies...I would LOVE to kick your collective asses in a grow but that’s just my ego raising her unqualified head..feels good in the moment tho🙃
        Again..don’t dis the masters you can’t see that are and have been of serious service to those in need.
        Love you guys and the women in the background🎩👠🍁😎

      We have been reading, and dont know if we should enter. We dropped 3 seeds on the 20th from N420G, each of us chose a strain to plant, oh, the 3 of us, me myself and I. Me chose Headbanger as we must see if it lives up to its name, Myself chose white mosow for several reasons, and I chose white widow for its reputation. All are auto fems, all are in our own soil, 20 gallon smart pots, all organic, and all I can do for now is CFLs (better lighting is in the future!). We will start 3 more strains just before Christmas, and 3 near the end of January, and February!
      So which one should we enter?

        What I would do is read from the start of our thread and see what everyone else is growing. We want to try and have as many DIFFERENT strains as possible. I don’t remember seeing anyone choose headbanger or white Moscow. I just finished my ww auto grow. I’m waiting to hear back from nirvana on if I should choose blue cheese or jock. Since others are doing jock and jack I’ll prolly go w the blue cheese since no one has chosen it.
        Good luck and welcome!

        Rwise just label headbanger as thing one, white Moscow as thing two and white Widow as thing 3. Probelm solved. Not sure how many thing 3s we will have but know we have alot of thing twos.

        Start date is on average December 1st. These are autos so starting early or starting late will not affect the end results. Autos are done when they are done unlike photos so starting early would not give anyone an advantage.

        DASS69 I can say I like the seed so far, that headbangers popped within 24 hours, the other 2 within 48 hours. What I did was take 1 of each auto fems that were available, and 1 regular to round out to 6 strains ( I can have 6+6 veg/flower).

        Retodd I have been reading this thread, I will likely choose the headbanger for this.

        Redwasp, you been checking my labels? LOL They are in the positions 1, 2 and 3, 'cept the WW and WM are reversed. I will keep records on this grow since it is now legal for me to do this.

      D.A.A.S.69 I honestly wouldnt know what an actual master grower would be for inside grows. Not a clue. I could have pointed some out for outside in the past. But they have all gone to the great garden in the sky.

      I can just picture what my Papaw would have had to say about all this high falutin inside growing. He would have looked you square in the eye and told you that if you cant grow enough outside with what God gave you then you need to go work for someone who can. Lol But he was a hard core died in wool farmer.

        At our food farm we built boxes under our rabbit cages with the sides going about 12 inches into the ground and about 12 inches above ground level. The bottom is open. We raise worms in the boxes and they make some great soil amendments. The plus side we dont have to clean it up. We just get what we need and well on lazy days grab the worms and go fishing. Lol

      Tika this whole thing is to help each other out and have fun. To help each other learn, see other methods of growing, and to bring each other closer together. Basically one massive grow journal. Yes there will be smack talk, I'm pretty sure you threw some in your statement there lol, but it's all for learning and fun.

      Yes there are some people in the background here that dont post much but if your lucky you will get a PM from the now and again with help. But as they dont post much, if ever, they remain anonymous and I assume they want it that way.

      Now back to you if you can throw a plant in and have some fun that would be great. I did not include you in the initial invite of names as your grows are like clockwork and I just didnt think you would be able to throw a plant in willy nilly.

      No the competition is in no way scientific or anything. It's just fun.
