    i wanna wish everyone luck and to have a great grow, i personally cannot join this fun competition, i dont have autos, but most importantly i dont have space, i have my growcloset full with 4 plants currently flowering, two outdoor plants flowering too, 3 moms i have to keep veggin and 10 clones rooting, basically i managed to set up a perpetual grow and on top of all that im switching to coco as plants get harvested and new clones take their place. thank you Redwasp for including me, ill sure be lurking around cheering and learning from all the great growers here

      It's all good 9fingerleafs Autos can be alot of fun to grow and the yields can surprise you if you ever change your mind about them. I really like my photos but I like my autos too. I certainly understand having no space. For me its electricity I always run out of though. I have plenty of space.

      Haha I wish we could combine superpowers, I don’t pay a cent for electricity. I’ve never been able to buy seeds either. The post office doesn’t reach were I live. But I would definitely love to try autos, using such a low intensity light as CfLs I would benefit a lot yieldwise if I gave twice the light during flowering. Anyway, I live in Mexico and cannabis prohibition was abolished last month so I hope next year I can get some seeds legally

    I'll be joining in about 2 weeks if that's still alright. Gotta finish out my gorilla glue auto.

      That's fine with me. Sounds like a plan.

    Alright just to tie up some lose ends I'm germinating four AK48 autos from Nirvana that got here way sooner than excepted. I will be using Promix HP for my soil along with microbe hydroponics photosynthesis plus and BIO BIZZ nutrient line up. This will be grown in a 4.5x4.5x6'8 tent under a 630 cmh lighting with 3200k Phillip bulbs for veg and flower. This is my first grow and need all the support I can get from this sub which I know I'll get because you guys/gals fucking rock! Will label when potted. Happy growing to everyone and man it feels good to have my first nearly legal grow in Michigan (December 6th official date).

      DimeBagKilla I hope your first grow rocks! This is the perfect place to be, I learn something every visit. I have been growing indoors just over a year & each time gets better. ☮

    This thread should provide lots of information and ideas that will help all involved. That's the plan anyways. Maybe I'll also find my next strain to grow as I'm always looking for new strains. Either way it should be fun and informative on all fronts.

      I believe I'm prepared for the Auto Showdown, I have been growing indoors just over a year. Since the Jock Horror didn't germinate, I waited & germinated another AK-48 yesterday to be on the same timeline as everyone else. So I will only be growing just the AK's but I'm excited, I literally watched it grow today... wow! Here's my plan...

      Auto Grow notes:
      • 2 AK-48 Autoflower (Nirvana) Thing #1 contest entry 'ALTHEA' germinated 11/30/18, plant #2 'Annie' germinated 11/23/18 - both currently in jiffy pods. Yes, I name my girls
      • Tent Vivosun 36"x 20"x 62"
      • Light Viparsectra LED 450W
      • 7 gal. Air-Pots
      • Lucky Dog Growers Blend - 1st time trying (Usually I use my own soil blend but we had so much mold this year I was afraid)
      • Well water PH balanced
      • FoxFarm nutrients trio soil formula - Grow Big, Big Bloom, Tiger Bloom - Use at 1/2 strength twice a week
      I always appreciate advice & thoughts, this is all just a fun learning experience. And any help along the way will be kindly noted... when I win! 🏆
      Good luck 🍀🍀🍀 to everyone. May your plants be kissed by the godess Maryjane ☮☮☮

      The pictures show the girls #1 Althea 24 hrs., #2 Annie 1 wk. (this plant got leggy when the seed left a shell that held the cotyledon leaves together).

        TY. I know I have bad depth perception but didn't realize how bad. I knew the light was a little high. So armed with a ruler I found the light to be twice as far as it should have been. Moved them closer and left the ruler in my grow kit. Thanks OJH ☮

      Thing one and thing two are up and have their first 2 leaves. So far four of the 6 plants planted have come up. I hope the rest of you are having the same luck with your seeds. I just need these other 2 to sprout and I'll be set.

      The plants seem to know they are in a contest. Thing two sprouted first and then thing one. The other 2 sprouted later than those 2 although the same day.

        The White Widow is in the lead, headbanger is just behind her, and that white moscow is a freak! Headbanger may have sprouted first (also had helmet head and stretch, and was planted deeper), its about 1/3 the size of the WW which is starting branches!
        Good luck and harvest to all!

        My Blue tooth is named Toucan Sam, because the taste is like fruit loops. My ak47 is Named Rambo for obvious reasons. And the other 2 of each are named like George Forman does his kids. Toucan sam 2 and toucan Sam 3, Rambo 2, and Rambo 3. Lol My green ninja in the beard contest is named Kato, the wonder women are just named wonder women. And my Aurora Indicas are just named Aurora. Bet you dont know what fairy tale that is from.

          Well this is about my last grow but it does belong here as it's about autos. The Carmelicious that was recently harvested is the best day time smoke I've had yet. It is even better than the last carmelicious I grew. They went over 100 days as autos but well worth the wait.

          The white widow that was just harvested is the best evening, watch TV smoke I've ever had. She went over 100 days too. The body stone, pain relief of both is amazing and neither affects your thinking so much that you cant function as normal. I've grown both of these before but for some reason this time they came out better than anything ive ever grown.

          I have not tried the white widow or white lsd that finished in under 80 days yet. It will be awhile before I try those.

            My 'things' had straight tails (as long as the seed)

            they are now in rockwool, warm and dark. I am impatiently waiting for helmet heads 😁

                So...a bit late to the game. She cracked this morning.
                Im growing blue cheese, she’s unnamed as of yet, in my flux Box I made just for this grow. I just finished up putting everything in my tent and dropped her in the soil. Growing in my all organic mix, which I’ve listed the mix I use earlier. She’s running under my new 450w Viparspectra led that Red was cool enough to tell me about. Thx again bro. I have my light about 12” above. Let’s see when she starts. Hope I can pull off this super fluxing technique I’ve been reading so much about.
                Good luck all🙏🏼✌🏻

                  At this stage I'd start that light at 36 inches above the plant if you are going to use it to germinate and start the seeds. After they have a few leaves slowly lower it over a couple of days until it's at about 24 inches. That's the height I use for veg with that light. During flower I go to about 18 inches but never closer than 15 inches.

                  Thx bro...I’ll correct it in the morning. I had it low to prevent from stretching after she broke ground. I should see her pop her head tomorrow
