        I'm a peroxide fan and I use it for everything. I put a splash in the distilled water for a little added oxygen

              I use straight from the 3% brown bottle between grows to clean my entire room pots trays pre-filter everything. A splash in the germ water. I spray my tent plants and all (peroxide/water 3tbs per quart) probably 2-3 times during veg this keeps any mold from growing the plants love the shot of oxygen and helps with bugs once I start flower I still spray a few more times but not the plants, I will never spray anything on my buds unless there's a problem and I have to. Until I switched to a living soil I would drench (peroxide/water 1/2 cup/gallon) a couple times during a grow and more if I thought I was having root issues

            SoOrbudgal it was watching you and a couple other people that convinced me to try some autos. I've always thought that people that grew autos were just impatient people who couldn't wait the extra month to grow photos, or they had to because of short growing season. Joining this forum has taught me so damn much thank you and everyone else who has helped me so much.

            A friend of mine just harvested 8 autos out of his 2x4 and looks like it is going to dry out to over a pound. I'm hoping I can do this

              You are very welcome glad you found us here I'm just waiting for some great grows like your friend LOL. I've not taken these autos real serious frankly. Maybe they can be as potent as photoperiod i've yet to discover it but my growing of them is average at best. You can do way better the more real attention, i've always had too much going on running both types. Always chasing the yields, trying to stay ahead of a dispensary run. LOL

            Really interested in your grow. I would like to try earth dust for my next grow. Are you using as much earth dust for these autos as you did for your previous photo grows?

              Without looking at the package I believe it says 3-5 tbs/gallon of soil and I do 4 in my photos so I did it the same for the autos. Because this is the first time doing autos I figure I would try doing my first flower top dressing as soon as I see any sign of white hairs then the second one a month later as directed. I am a little bit concerned with them not getting the boost early

            I started my Earth Dust yesterday for a planting in 2 - 3 weeks when the tent is cleared. My basement is running about 59F right now and I'm not sure if that will be warm enough. On the other hand I "assume" even if it is too cold now once it gets in the tent the process should kick in, no?

              I would suggest you put something under your pots just to keep em off the cold floor and maybe let it get warm right before you stick a seed/clone in it but other then that I think you're good

              I will be starting an auto run in about ten days. My soil is started. I was wondering about autoflowers and when to get the boost started since they're so quick. I sent a note to Green Sunshine and this was the response.

              "We often get asked how to best use Earth Dust when growing Autoflowers. This is a basic guide to follow that may help with your success! To start, follow the instructions on your bag to amend your media with the Base mix and allow to cook for 2-4 weeks. It is safe to sow your seeds directly into your soil, however using a peat starter plug can help assure your seeds a safe start. Once you're plant has matured to day 30-35 you will want to apply your top dressing of Boost at a rate of 3-4 tablespoons per gallon of media and rake it into the top 1 inch layer of media and water. Make sure the top layer of your soil stays moist for a couple of days to allow the nutrients to penetrate into the substrate below. This should provide your plant with all of the nutrition it should need to finish its full cycle. If your plants shows any sign of deficiency, try to incorporate a boost or compost teas to supplement. Remember when growing with a living soil, it is best to keep it simple and let nature go to work. Please let us know if you have any questions and happy growing!"

            Autos are all I've every really done. They have been worth it.
            I'm trying photos next and have one going now. Trying to clone but having issues. Autos are great. No worry about light leaks and all that. You can top and mainline and defoliate. Same shit as photos really. You can get to your goal.

              I'm glad your giving autos a shot. I love growing them. They can be little assholes though. Any little mishap and your yield will suffer. They stunt very easily when seedlings. But once they hit flower they take off like a bat out of hell. Good luck MeEasy!

                Update = good morning all. I have 5 of the 8 above ground, just in case they don't come up I dropped three more seeds this morning. If they decide to come up I guess I'll have to find room in another tent for any extras. That's the most attractive thing about autos they are pretty flexible with light schedules. I'm going to put up a pic but you can't really see shit in it but figured I took the damn thing I might as well share it ๐Ÿ˜œ have a good weekend
