    Chapter 2: The Little Sprout That Could (2nd grow)

    Starting a thread for my second grow.
    Trying to get a little ambitious and have 4 plants going.
    2 Auto Glueberry OG from Dutch Passion
    2 Photo White Widow from Seedsman

    The glueberry og is advertised as a good strain for SCROG. I'm just keeping it simple by topping early and then letting it do it's thing.

    The white widows will alsobgo through some topping as well.

    All are in the same tent on an 18/ 6 light schedule. I figure the autos will finish before I'm ready to switch the photos to flowering so hopefully it works out.

    Pics will be forthcoming.

    Auto Glueberry OG. The sprouted seeds went in the dirt on 1/18. These were both topped twice as early as possible. I made a mistake topping one of them and cut too much off, but it is ok. Likely will have one less main cola than it's sister.

      White Widow photoperiod. These sprouted and were planted on 2/1. One came up quickly while the other took it's sweet time. The bigger one has been topped twice. I will do the same to the straggler when it's ready.

        Grow medium: Fox Farms Ocean
        Lights: Viparspectra 300w LED x 2
        Plain PH adjusted water used for first two weeks. Started adding nutes every other watering for the Glueberries. Full recommended strength of Fox Farms Grow Big ( Need to check name later) for veg stage.

        Using smart pots and noticed the medium is drying out a bit quicker than last grow. I watered every 5-6 days prior grow and this one seems to be going about 3-4 days till the pot feels very light and dry. Could be just thirsty or dryer conditions. I need to put up the humidity monitor perhaps just dryer inside due to wintertime and heat being on.

                White Widow photoperiod.
                One is getting trained, the other I don't think is quite ready for another topping and training. I'm using a wire clothes hanger that I cut up and bent to assist in training.

                  So I'm wondering if it's worth trying to replant my autos into bigger pots once they started flowering. I'd like to replant if it helps them grow a bit, but from what I read it's not recomended due to shock for the plant.
                  Basically one of my autos is being sluggish and I'd like to put it in a 4 gallon pot from it's 2 gallon pot. It's sister is flowering, but I'm fairly certain the buds are gonna be really small and airy. I might have gotten overzealous with topping it. On the flipside though, it might be doing better if I planted them in 4 gallon pots after their "solo cup" phase. I dunno, hence, asking for advice.
                  I am out of fresh growing medium to add to the 4 gallon posts till I get my delivery of more fox farms soil. The auto that is not flowering as well might get replanted into a 4 gallon when the soil arrives. Guess I'll just chronical it and update on what happens.

                    Love the BDSM styled LST u got going on the oldest WW. Can't anwser your question about repotting the flowering autoflower, but I'm tuned in on your grow. You're off to a good start Budlofsky

                      Budlofsky's Dinner here's my 2cents on transplanting...and this comes from transplanting all manner of OTHER plants but not this one so take that for what it is worth...i think the general presumption against transplanting is that it is unfamiliar and definitely not as "easy" as the alternative, not transplanting. that said, it's really not that hard to transplant in such a way that you minimize and/or have no shock whatsoever. if you follow Nebula's tutorial

                      http://www.growweedeasy.com/transplant

                      and two parts that i've found non-negotiable/really make the whole thing go smoothly is to first saturate well beforehand so the soil holds together but not overwater cuz then it'll be too heavy and the soil will fall away when you lift it. the second is to use a butter knife or maybe a paint stirrer, any least invasive stick type device will do, to go around the soil in between it and the pot all the way around the diameter of the pot beforehand. so as to "get between" the soil and the container so that you can kinda of compact the soil's sides if that makes sense. if done correctly you can lift it out no problem. i hope that helps.

                        I decided against replanting my autos but I replanted one of my white widows that i'm training. Here is after replanting from 2 to 4 gallon pot.
                        As for the other white widow, its still a bit small so I left it alone.

                          My autos are slowly forming buds. I don't like how small they are. I had not checked ph of the water I have been mixing up for a few waterings since I had figured out exactly how much ph down to add so it would be around 6.2-6.3 ph when I was always measuring. Glad I checked this time before watering. Ph was down to 3.8! I fixed that REAL fast and got it to 6.4. Checked ph off my runoff and it was 6.0 on the nose. Hopefully this will give them what they need.

                            Wide view of my tent, since some asked. I realize my air scrubber is gigantic. Made a mistake when ordering it, but it is what it is. Should last me a few years tho!

                              Weekly (somewhat) update.
                              Both White Widows are lookin good. Started training the late sprouter and she's about ready for a transplant.
