    The AutoToka grow....first auto... 2nd grow!

    Apologies to Farmbuck, lol! All 3 seeds have sprouted tap roots this morning so it's D day. That's drop day for those just tuning in. 3 Sativa Auto MAUI seeds will drop into 5 gal bags of my new mix of Coco Loco with extra perlite, worm castings, guano, crab meal, oyster shell, Karanja/Neem cake meal (systemic pest control), volcanic basalt dust (minerals). I sprout in an oz of distilled water and 3 ml of h2o2 for oxygenation then go directly into the 5 gal. I make a hole about the size of a solo cup and fill with plain coco, poke a small hole with a toothpick and place seed 3/4 inch down then fill with fine coco. I believe this is better as the roots have a chance to grow a little before encountering the richer mix. I keep the surface of the soil just damp until they pop up and a couple more days before too much water. I will keep a log with weekly updates on plant and soil. I hope to grow these without chemical nutes, just pHed water and some tea or top dressing with castings for the entire grow depending on how they do.

    If you enlarge the last pic of seeds in glass you can see the tap root on 2 of them.

          Just 2 extra pots wet for extra humidity. With those and water flooded in the bottom tray plus my fogger/humidifier I can get to mid 50's until I open the door. Cabinet is 85 day, 70ish nite

        I'm running one of three lights for 100w actual at 18 inches thru seedling then go to 300w from all three. They are Bloomspect SS1000 100w each on a DIY pvc rack I made. High PAR/PPFD very even spread across my 30"x48" cabinet. I can get to 12" above the canopy but not 10". Found that out last grow

            Not to worry PL I'll be back, just need a small stash to get thru till my 6 month sativas ripen.

          Just a quick mid-week update: Seeds germinated on the 11th and dropped into a small hole in a 5 gal bag. As they are autos I hope to avoid transplant shock early on. This morning exactly 71 hrs later I found a sprout in one pot. Yee Haw! At noon the second showed her head so with luck by dinner I'll have all 3 up and at 'em!

            I just noticed if you look really close at the left pot you can see tiny first leaf set still in the cotyledon! Within an hour of opening!

            Good news! 2 of 3 are up and healthy. No. 3 was a no show so I'm dropping another which will be a week behind but that's fine; can't smoke 'em all at once! They're short and stout right now so they're getting plenty of light. Might have to raise them up a bit to get node separation tho. Gave them a small dribble of pHed water. Training will start as soon as the 3rd node is reaching out. Top or fim above the 4th for a quadline after 5 is growing out.

            A Question! Who in the US orders seeds from True North Seeds? I ordered from them and paid by ach money transfer through a reputable money exchange bank. Now TN says they can't find the transfer in their account. I have all documentation and confirmation numbers but after several emails they seem stumped. Has anyone else had this experience with them? Their emails back show all that info so I don't get it. I tried to call them all day yesterday but no answer. It's only $75 but this should not happen as I followed their instructions to the letter. I'm a little POed right now. I used them as they show a large selection of landrace regulars I want and had planned another $300 order but now I guess not If they can't solve this.
