    AutoBuck project, the beginning.

    Aug 28: Lights on at 18/6, I decide not to go for the 20/4 after all. my reasoning is simple I don't want to keep the "grow room" too hot. The room is at 26.2C with a HR of 51%.
    14 girls are now in their final places. I still have 4 left in paper towels, their tap root are showing so one or two days before I move them in their bed.
    One GG#4 decide to show her tiny body. So far so good loll

        Howdy Farmbuck, I am continually impressed by Your grow setup. I'm just guessing, are those yellow 'flags' some kind of sticky fly/pest traps? Just curious.
        Good luck with your grow, I have never tried any autos and I'm very interested in Your experience with them.
        Smoke weed,.....grow peace!

          Bonjour DW2, Yeah they are yellow fly traps, I've got a few flies in the "grow room". This is my first full autos grow so yes a lot of learning but I have some good growers here who have knowledges of growing them.

        I was just going through some containers today looking for something to put a new batch of balm in when I came across one with a dozen or so seeds labeled autos. I have absolutely no memory of where or when I got them but I may hatch them after harvest.

            Hi western friend! Got another GG#4 who decide to look at the light tonite, the Amnesia Haze aren't no ready to pop up.
            Must be AH is more Sativa dominant than the GG#4, the reason why she is no hurry. What do you think SoOrbudgal ?

            Well i grew a varity of AH an GG4 both were excellent hard nugs and top notch smoke in my view. But didn't get large harvests on either indoors. It's nearly gone and i'll be out till i harvest outdoors. As i recall GG was very strong vigorus grower i just wish i'd had grown more of it LOL . I thought i'd grown enough to see me through but i did'nt unless someone in the household " hid " some jars that i was not aware of......happened before an it won't happen anymore. i'm searching where it could of been stashed.

                Yes how tiny they start out LOL i use the same for supporting them with the toothpick dang little gals. Just so in case this happens an it does at times...........seems like they just stall like they think about the next grow spurt but takes a couple weeks then they blast off really do. So don't think they are just failing cause they aren't. I like growing them for the fun of having smaller and more of a sea of green.

                Good morning Farmbuck sounds like you will have plenty to take care of. Warning......my outdoor photo GG#4 is a sticky bug attractor almost like a spider web of sticky. I go an shake her throughout the day and watch the signs of WPM or bud rot she is just a very resined up plant should make for excellent hash or oil. Pressing should not be a issue I like to make kief hand pressed balls from it.

                Good morning to you also SoOrbudgal So far I have 7 GG#4 and 7 Amnesia Haze. Oh yeah I lost one GG#4 but it could have been my fault. I'm a bit concern of the heat when the lights are on, the temp is still high to my liking friend. You see inside of the grow room is 82F when the lights are on but the good news is it will get cooler next week much cooler loll

              #11
              Very cool mornings and about 82f outdoor could be warmer an sunny but the blasted fire smoke is really doing a number on them like last summer all is well just could use alot more " unfiltered " sun. Boy are we getting the illigle so called " hemp" bust right now. Stupid grows high THC weed blowing it for alot of others, draws huge attention.

                A bit of an issue with an Amnesia Haze auto. This morning I saw a few tiny brown spots on one of my Amnesia Haze girls, see pic 2. First thing I did is to test my PH level. Lo and behold the PH was 7.0 so I balance it to 6.5. I'll keep an eye on her.

                Some pics of the auto girls.

                      Only weed I know was Jamaican for sure was when two couples took a trip many years ago. Each gal brought in an ounce. I drove through snow-covered roads to go try it. I was hearing things, and then I kept thinking about having to drive back home. I am using Stonington Blend soil, I've never checked soil's actual pH. Reading other peoples' posts it seems watering is best at 6.5 to uptake calcium. I started between 6.2-6.5 per mfr's advice to another grower. I need to start training WT and the first WW Fast, very soon. When I top the WT and try to root it, what water should I use?

                      Well Puglover1 it depend of the quality of your tap water in your state of IL madame. Mine is at a level 7.0 with two addition for which I don't like but then .... Oh yeah they are chlorine and fluoride harmless to humans but still I like my water pure . I know who could give your the answer and so many here also, try asking SoOrbudgal I betcha she will you give you some pointers.

                      Farmbuck - I can't remember, got re-reading to do in my spare time, what water is for rooting, like with clones. My tap water is around 8, I filled more bottles before they dump chlorine again but always I let it sit out. Newer lines out here, and a new water treatment plant because of flooding, the IL River is part of my town. In 2019 my entire state, 102 counties, was declared a federal AG disaster due to too much rain. My county was 4th in the country for unplanted farmland. The rain just stalled out, in the county next door people had nice gardens, here Farmer's Markets had no produce to sell. In a last ditch effort for a crop farmers were dropping soy bean seeds from helicopters. It was weird to drive around and see empty corn fields that summer.
