    Here's a tip for y'all - for bigger looking buds - just get a mini bic lighter and your buds will look twice as big as they are. Click image for larger version

    But seriously - have my Vortex fan on the wall - tent is cleaned out - 3 gallon fabric pots are acclimatizing in the tent - 3 beans germinating - ummmm guess I'll have to unpack my virginal Optic 4 COB.

    More than just an on or off switch - if I can figure how to use this light properly - just let me remind most viewers that a lot of the earlier Cannabis Cup winners were Canadian entries - way back in the 70's 80's I think - anyways ……………….

    To be a contender in this showdown one must start with a plan - before - they start their grow. Usually I just top my plants and wing it from there - but me thinks this grow will have to be low. No more 4 foot autos this time. So here's my plan...………………………………………. Click image for larger version

      Mr. Furley''s Photoperiod grow in your auto show.

      went in water at 2100 hrs 11/27.

      will flip on or before 1/1/19.

      42 days 18/6 = 756 light hours.
      Projecting harvest between 2/26-3/1
      55 days 12/12= 660
      projecting 97 day @ 1416 light hrs

      I may not be the fastest, I might not have the most, but I'll give you a run for your money. Anybody care to track light hours? because for me power cost less out of peak hours so it is not economical to run a light 24 hours a day, so I dont grow Autos! for me it's all about grams x watts = $$$.

      Good luck to everyone.

      Ok fellas...here it is. I don’t know if any soil growers want to try basically what we’ve been mixing for over 40 yrs, but here’s what I do now. Back in the day when we had horses we used a lot of manure.
      As you know we’re all organic here.
      I start with a 50/50 peat moss and organic potting mix
      Dpending on the amount of soil I’m mixing is the amount of vermiculite, this case was 2+ cups.....I eyeball everything...lol.
      I then add in a couple tablespoons of blood and bone meal.
      I mix the shit out of it.
      Last but not least I add 1/3 mix of organic worm castings and then mix everything together for a good 15 min or so to make sure I’m all good.
      I know a lot of you buy premade soils, etc like fox farms n such. I personally think it’s better to just get your hands in and mix everything yourself.
      I went ahead and added pix of the brands we use.
      🙏🏼✌🏻Brothers n sisters

        dont you have to cook it with the blood meal???

        oldjarhead100 Cook it? No. I use a small amount. To give a idea, my box is 12X22X8-1/2 and there’s like 2 tablespoons of bloodmeal mixed into the whole thing. I use the same amounts of bone meal. Along with using worm castings it makes for a lot of nitrogen. While growing I use a lot of fish emulsion also. I’ve never burned a plant in my life, knock on wood...lol

      I decided (not easy for me sometimes lol ) I have three strains of seeds I got in the mail and 6 from a hermied auto I'm going to try 2 or 3 of each strain .now I'm supposed to pick the challenge plants before I drop seeds . What if they dont pop?

        I'm thinking that if 1 doesnt pop you go to the next. I dont want anyone to not be in this because of a bad seed.

          Change of plans - I'll be going with Purple Stilton for thing 1 - and a mystery seed from Buddha Seeds as thing 2 - not from a bad seed but just one of those things one runs into. Namely oneself - putting germinated seed into pot with tweezers as my fingers are too big to do it - but oops little too much pressure and zing off my finger it went - somewhere - I never found it . Not the first time I've lost a seed right in front of me.

            I hate that. You have the whole family crawling around the floor looking for the seed. And sometimes you just never find it. That sucks.

            Funny you mention it, My solo Durban seed took that Ride tonight but I was luck and found it.

          It's almost time for the official start. I realize some have already dropped their seeds but again they are autos so time isnt a factor. If I'm up late tonight I will start mine tonight, if not first thing in the morning.

          I'm probably going to have to get rid of 5 clones somehow as I dont really want to be running 4 tents right now. To busy this time of year. They are clones of the Green Ninja but I will just reveg her after harvest and will know by then if she is worth keeping around. A few people have asked about reveging so I'll make a short post on doing it when the time comes. I love the way they grow wide and bushy when grown that way. Not to mention the yields can be very good on a revegged plant.

            So I've changed my entry and decided to add a Thing#2.

            Thing#1 will be Strawberry Cough, a sativa for the wife, grown in Roots Organic on top of 5lbs of Kind Soil in a 5 gallon fabric pot.

            Thing#2 will be Orange Cookies, an indica dominant hybrid for me, grown in Sohum Soil in a 5 gallon fabric pot.

            Both will be under 4x26w 6500k cfls for the first 2-3 weeks then moved under the 315w 4200k CMH for the remainder of their short life.

            I plan on only slight defoliation for both. I've never grown a plant without training of some sort so it will be a new experience for me!

                  Okay so I’ll probably be starting a little later than most but I’m definitely in! I have 4x Sweet Tooth Auto Fems from n420g. Just waiting on them to arrive. So hopefully sometime this coming week. I’ll just be using 400w HID mh/hps, FFHF, FF Nute Trio, all in a 2x2x4 tent. Also in 5 gal smart pot. Probably just going to grow one but not sure. And will be using NebulaHaze feeding schedule from her auto grow. It was coco and GH trio but I’m sure it’ll work just as well. I’ll tweak if necessary.

                    Awesome!! I can’t wait!!! My seeds should be here today. But everything else I’m planning to use will be here towards the end of the week. So I guess I’ll probably be starting everything Friday or Saturday. Only a week behind. Lol
