    Beginning of autoweek 4

    A little voice is whispering inside of my head saying " Bucky your little autogirls are growing, just be patience old man..!"

    First feeding today, not much just half of dosage of Cal-Mag extra from Advanced Nutrients. Will monitor very closely to see how they will react with their feed.

    Watering is about 250ml per pot per day.

    Maintaining the humidity to 45-56% with a temp of 23C - 28C

    Your girls are looking pretty spunky Buck. Flowering at three weeks would scare me I think... "Oh my, what do I do now?".. I think mine will be after week 4 as they are Sativa. This mix with extra worm castings holds water very well; I keep the surface damp but it takes a full week for the entire pot to dry out. Twice as long as the straight coco I used last time!

      I hope so lollll

    Well look at those little gals now all blinqie. I sure hope those do stretch for you Farmbuck then you'd get a feel for them. I swear that grower/breeder i got the home made seeds from he was a hell of a seed maker. All his strains i've grown were big autos, no less than 2ft tall some i had to train down. So there's some really good genetics with autos if you choose to try them again sometime. PS my daughter's friend is here from Mexico doing a gig at a farm outhere. She's legal an so is the farm got invitied to join but not this year for me.

      Well I have to admit it, I like my little autogirls SoOrbudgal. Nice that your daughter is back home. We are waiting for good reliable airline tickets to get back to Yucatan.

      Your cotyledons are still green Farmbuck ! I am impressed by that because as soon as I get three or four leaf sets, mine die.

        Some are turning yellow now my friend. Well this morning I saw a few of them.

      Hey Farmbuck, I am really surprised that your autos have gone to bloom already. When did you start them? Is this normal for autos? Did you plant the seeds in large pots to start them, so you wouldn't have to transplant? They look fantastic... Muskie Man

        I'm going on week 4 MuskieMan. Is it normal ? Well not sure, I'm new to autos but on what I read some start at week 3 to flower. Maybe our autos experts might answer it.

        Like my photos I never transplant them. I planted them directly to my 5 gallons pot once they germinated. Will it work ? Time will tell.

        Lights are at 22 inches from from the girls but I notice one of them is having a bit of light burn. My PH is ok at 6.3 and also yesterday it was their first feed, not much but it's a start, Half a dose of Cal-Mag extra from Advanced Nutrients.

        This morning my temp was 28C with a humidity of 47%.
