    Update = the three never came up good thing I dropped replacement seeds right away. I planted the replacements this morning should have a better turnout I had tried leaving the seeds in a cup to sprout this time instead of staying with my normal paper towel method which was obviously a mistake 🤔 I don't see why it would be different as long as they get a tap root but for some reason I lost more than normal

      I never tried anything else than sowing them straight in the soil like Mother Nature would have done.
      It’s easier to keep dark and moist than in a paper towel

      Water peroxide must be used just for a few seconds to sterilize the seeds surface and then drop into clean water, leaving the peroxide mixed with the water may be the reason they didnt gerninate

      I'm also a straight to soil kind of grower.
      I have best success with that.

      I've been using peroxide water to soak them in since the mid 90s but the lady that showed me how said to move them to paper towels after 24 hours and that's how I've doing it. I read that you can just leave them in cups until they were ready so I figured I'd try it and either the seeds were not good or the method was not good. It is curious that 2 of the 3 that didn't come up were the same strain but they all had tales when I planted them. It's always possible that it was operator error I've messed up more expensive shit then that in my life 🙃

    All 8 are above ground and seem to be healthy enough to live, this grow has so many firsts for me, 1st autos, 1st time I tried to germ completely in a cup (no p towels) big mistake imo 50% failed (could be as 9fingerleafs said soaking in the peroxide water mix I normally leave em 24 hours in cups and transfer to p towels) to grow and I used cup to p towels on replacements 100% are up, and 1st time I planted straight into forever home pots I have always used some kind of starter pot mainly so I can fix any normal seedling flaws like long or crooked stems but it seems to be doing okay so far. I treated these with bit juice this morning (soaked mosquito bits strained) not necessarily to water them but to wet the living soil to keep it moist and I've been seeing a few gnats in all my tents

    I just popped a couple photos for the other 2x4 purple skunk and Gelato OG thought I'd share

      That's now my go to way also MeEasy with the seeds. I just did that solution yesterday, then back into the towel, tomorrow if no show both get tossed. My other 2 seeds sprouted in 24hrs, into there permanent homes under the t-5 now.

    Good luck. You got this. Man I'm still having issues. Idk if its cause the filter water or me not ph'ing.
    I'm about to start my 1st full photoperiod grow.

    Have you heard of geoflora? It's like earthdust. same size, about same price. I'm thinking of trying.
    I always just plant the seed straight to soil in 4gal pot. Dome.
    &
    about 90% success with that. For me.
    I fail worse other ways of germ.

    Lookin forward to your flowers on these.

      Yeah this grow has had the full treatment of ED. It was my last one that was 1/2 treatment.
      Yes it is a carbon filter.
      I also have the shaker bottle of plant microbes and probiotic. I will.add some In next watering. I dont think i ever let them dry tho. Maybe to wet really
      Could it be caused by overwatering?

      It can be it's been probably the hardest part for me, getting the watering right and I think I still don't have it right which is why I am putting the p probiotics on them to make sure the soil has enough life. It's hard to change from watering when it is dry to trying to keep it from getting dry. The way I'm doing it now is a half gal skip two days a quart skip a day then a half gal again it seems to be keeping it better idk. Keep in mind this is only my third round with this stuff. Once I get back to feeling better I'm gonna try the stuff from kis organics it similar to ed. I really enjoy playing with different types of training, defoliation techniques, and light schedules just different shit to see what happens and since I bought new lights and tents I have to start all over with some stuff I had already done but under the cheap blurple lights. Hell I will probably try adding the blurple lights back into my little experiments lol

      Yeah I am overwatering. Your dead on when you say that its tricky getting it right. I always have runoff. I need to cut that out.

      Nebula put this article out sometime last year and I find alot of stuff that is being blamed on ph could definitely be overwatering but it's hard to convince someone when they have been growing for a long time that they have a plant being sensitive to their watering habits. Look at all the different shit that could be a simple watering issue that I'm guilty of flushing a plant for only for it to get worse instead of better. How many times did I flush for a watering issue?

    Just a quick update on the auto girls, seedlings are just not that exciting but they wanted a drink today so I took a pic. I'm sure you can tell which ones I had to re-pop the seeds if you can't you will probably be needing a new hobby soon 😉 lol.

      Update = the ladies are still just babies or so I thought 🤔 I actually topped one of the wedding cake this morning. I sure hope it wasn't a mistake doing it because it already has some preflower action happening just the first calyx with pistils but I've never seen a plant this small go into flower except in pictures so it made me a little uneasy about topping it. The rest are still coming along. It was 3 weeks ago today that the first 4 sprouts were planted and 2 weeks tomorrow on the other 4. I'm thinkin the growth might be a little slow which could be from the temperature nights are getting down in the mid to upper 60s days mid to upper 70s i know with photos that it's ok but I can add a week to their veg. I guess we'll see 👀

        I was and am in your same temp ranges. Yes it's slows down growth from what i see on mine. Wow that's pretty quick on that pre flower but they do that some strains. Over all i think you'll see if your temps get above 75 they'll perhaps stretch more and spread out? But i'm sure you may know this.......mine are doing OK slow growing even the photos because of these temps in my other tent that is not in a sealed room it's exposed to outdoor temps. Makes it real challenging but i love it, keeping them green & healthy. LOL Yours look very healthy

        Canuck I topped between 5 n 6 is that where you are meaning

        I don't think it slowed down at all the next morning the top two leaves were droopy but by the afternoon they were trying to hold up the light. I've topped the two in front middle and the one in the back rt corner. Just the one WC is showing preflower

        Good morning all, I need some clarification/advice from my autoflower growing neighbors 😀 I topped the last three this morning so all 8 are topped. Because I have so many different strains in there I had a couple plants trying to stretch so I cranked up the light which caused a couple of em to have almost no space between nodes. I wanted to do a little defoliation on a couple to give some air n light down in the plants. I don't find any auto specific defoliation instructions just a few places that say not to defoliate autos. Some have leaves dragging the ground and others have fans covering up and affecting the growth of the lower branches

        My question is, is it ok to defoliate and if yes how much can I do without hurting their feelings? Can I defoliate them like I would any normal photo?

          I sure do remove the " knuckle draggers " leaf on soil and i wait till i see budlets then remove the inside big fans just like my photos but not as much removed at first flower. After in bloom say 3wks i re evaluate if need any more removed. Yes the autos are tiny spaced between nodes until they stretch. Your grow looks happy

        Update = just wanted to show everyone the progress the girls have made. I cleaned up a handful of the lowest leaves the other day and another handful today. WC 1 is moving right along I was concerned that it was so short when it started showing preflower but it has surprised me in how much it has grown (pic 1) the rest are coming up pretty good to and a couple others are starting to show some pistils

          Plants looks real good in there. Lots of green. Do the gnats effect the plants much? Are the pineapple stickies enough to hold them at bay? Still a bit too cold here in the great white north where I am for bugs but they will sure be around soon.

          I treat the gnats with mosquito bits soaked in water strain out the bits and use the water as you normally would. This takes care of the larvae the sticky traps get the adults. There's quite a few on these sticky traps because I left the soil in there for nearly a month wetting it once a week and didn't notice that the gnats had infested the tent before I planted. I've been busy with some shit and wasn't paying attention

        Look at them grow these autos just are amazing 1 month nearly and they show preflower on some. Go little gals don't slow down.

            Nice work MeEasy. I love autos, so fun to grow. Autos stretch like crazy. Get ready cause your about to have a full tent. In my experience around the second week of flower they take off.
