    COCO COIR 5 strain Auto grow.

    I'm starting the following autoflower feminized seeds from MSNL.com
    1- granddaddy purple
    2- purple Haze
    3- silver Haze
    4- og
    5- carmelicious

    Here we are buffering the Coco using a tub and a few totes 30 & 50gal...a tub drain and some sorta rack to set em on for draining is invaluable ..(perlite comes after a 12hr calimag soak with 7.5ml/gal or 150% recommend dose)


    I also switched to gh nutrient line for this grow. (Was using, and still LOVE megacrop) I think I'm ready for these girls to blast off ...CFLs t5 high output are warming up!! I'm stoked . Thanks for reading. This will be my grow journal post for the whole grow.

    Looks like a great start, subbed! Can’t wait to see that GDP grow out. Thinking about that for my next grow.

      Interesting. I read about some of the shorter phenos on either Seedsman or MSNL. I didn’t realize they’d be on the larger/faster side. Can’t wait to see those purple buds!

        Finished getting my Coco mixed with perlite and my 3gal (square) bags. They didn't stay square so no grid as we'd hoped. But they are still legit af. And well made.

        Also soaked 5 seeds and they all germinated (msnl.com rocks) 4have poked through the Coco n I helped them with the helmet heads. My hands are filthy in this pics cuz I just got off work. I am a plasterer. Yinz Have a great day it's time to smoke dahn....

          T5s are waking them up... Silver Haze is being a douche but it's coming out slowly..I'm afraid it'll damp off but it still needs dome to shed helmet.

          Some of the solo cups are just empty fillers for space, so the good ones can't fall over.

            4 of 5 survived...my purple Haze never really went anywhere after cracking a small small tail. I got a headbanger soaking and another purple Haze. We'll see how they hatch.

            These girls are doing well. Raised my EC to 1100 today Up from 800 . Added in some armor si and some rapidstart here at day 6ish. Fertigating twice daily now.

            thanks and... anyone have any advice??..I always wanna learn other people's tried and true methods.

              Fertigating / fertigation is simply water going in with nutrients. It's a cross between fertilizing and irrigation I suppose lol. When I grow in soil I water with nutes every other time but and coco it must be nutes every watering.

            Wanted to show everyone the growth that happened in just 48 hours. (Check last post vs this one)

            I raised inflow e. C. from 500 to 600 ppm and I added in armour si and rapid start the last two days. I also dropped my pH from 6.2-6.4 range down to a 6.0 -6.2 range.

            Still under t5 ho lights 24/0. About 3 to 4 inch's away.
            Rh is 57% and temps are 77°,(+/- 3° for a/c fluctuations)

            As always I'm open for constructive criticism and tips etc. Thanks for looking.

              9 pictures of transplanting tonight...they are 11 days old I believe.

              Explosive growth every day...as advertised with Coco coir and gh nutes! Shits da bomb.

              Roots seem strong and long ... Thanks to the armor si and rapidstart ( if you ask me)..

              Watered them before and after transplant...tested runoff before and tuned in some nutes to drench pots before transplant, therefore they go from one environment to the same environment in new pots i.e. Ppms and pH it also holds the medium together whilst you transplant.

              Yinz probably know this stuff but maybe not everyone, someone taught me n I'm trying to pay it forward. Have a happy and healthy weekend everyone.

                2 weeks old today I believe, I would say that the last two weeks have been good to these girls they look like they're doing okay. the silver haze has a few Brown dots on the first true set of leaves maybe a cal mag deficiency but I don't see how?? I plan on keeping an eye on it.

                Just fertigated with 550 ppm / 6.1 pH.

                I still have them under t5 high outputs.

                Fighting high humidity right now ( 70%). My AC is working hard.

                I noticed today that my rapid start is all gel at the bottom and it was sticking in my dropper syringe. Like sludge?? It's brand new for this grow??

                May this post find you in the best of spirits thanks for reading

                  22 days old. Topping took well and they haven't slowed at all. Got nice EC in and out.
                  Gh nutes are working well.
                  were cruising into flower on these. I have back off on the nitrogen a good bit and added in a little extra Bloom buster to keep my EC values correct.

                    Well my starting point is roughly... 1ml si, 4ml calmag, 2ml micro, 2ml gro , 0.5 ml bloom, 5ml nectar, healthy pinch yucca, and 2ml rapidstart... I have it written somewhere but this is my seedlings mix , i go to 400ppm , all this is per gal. I pH before adding rapidstart. And I let it sit for one hour after adding the armor si. before adding the other stuff and then waiting another half hour before I give it to my plants. I have noticed if I do not wait that last half-hour it's hard to get a proper parts per million read because everything has to dissolve properly.

                    Today is 31 days from seed. I am switching from my to mh to hps today, these ladies are fixin to blast off some proper big buds!! Backed off on nitrogen some more but boosted my Kool bloom.
                    They seem happy, lost a few leaves from them getting wet and laying in the Coco. But no problems as of yet (knock on wood) .
                    They are all 2- 2.5 ft tall....and they ain't done stretching yet. Even topping don't slow down these autoflower genetics...they just hulk out.

                    Hope everyone is well.

                      Ahhh. The defoliation scissors. We don't have any problem letting it go. I never found scientific proof that it helps, and the info I did find was actually saying defol hurts yeilds. I'd love to see a true side by side comparison grow with a control... I have yet to see it. I know you are just trying to help and I truly thank you. But we just prune we don't defol.
