First Grow- Autoflowers CFL (nooby)

:439:
Hello all.
Ive been lurking on a few pages FOREVER now ive decided to do my own grow.
Seeds: (Fem)Diesal Ryder(-Deez), (Fem)Top 69(-TnT), and Short Ryder(Chump Jr.).
Soil: Miracle Grow.....(yea i know)
Nutes: Miracle Grow.....(yea...i still know.)
Light: CFL (warm and cool 4 of each 2 of each for now.)
Grow Cab: A box that is in my closet. its about 3x3x2 maybe. Not too big.

Plan: First part of the plan is that I hope my Short Ryder goes Male. Yes Male. I want to use his pollen to selectively pollinate a few buds on the Diesel Ryder. Is this a good idea?
Im hoping they seeds dropped will be more Diesel Ryder than Short Ryder. Am I wrong?
I dont know much about crossing but I DO know that I dont want to order online anymore. LOL
Should I be doing this a different way?

As of right now the oldest plant is TnT which is 10 days old. Deez is 5 days old. Chump Jr. (named after my fallen plant) hasnt even broke ground yet. LOL.
Tnt is standing at about 1 inch while Deez has completely shot pass her at 1.5 inches. Not by light stretch either. Im a noob but my lights are good. LOL..


Like I said im a noooob but an avid reader on the topic. Any advice that you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated.
I also plan to have a lot of fun with this grow. It is my first so I am going to try some new things. Maybe LST. Different Nutes for sure. Just using what i had to start.

I will post pictures very soon. Like later on.
If anyone wants to help me put a link to my grow also that would be very appreciated.
Hope to get some replies from you guys soon...
one love.
Cant believe I started my own grow!
YESSSS:yahoo:

The plant with the dying cotys is doing worse even though the stem isnt getting affected.
And i hit my oldest 2 plants with nutes for the first time. Very weak dose though.
Does anyone think this is to early? (10 days and 13 days)
lemme know.....any help would be appreciated. Ive never seen this happen before.

Good morning,

Sorry I was away, I'm not around much on the weekends. Come to think of it this places quiet in general on the week ends. Damn Pot heads must sleep all week end.. :)

Any ways, The ladies look fantastic! As for you problematic girl, just let her do her thing. There really isn't much you can do for her right now.

Hey man, just swung ::swang?:: on by to check out what you got goin here... lookin good! Make sure the lights are close to the plants, otherwise they'll stretch, which could lead to the plant being too lanky to support its own buds...

Depending on the soil you use, you should be good to start low nute doses around 2 weeks, which is right about where you're at. Dont worry too much about sickly looking coty's, as long as the serrated leaves look good. I have a Lemon Skunk growing that looked like absolute crap when it first started out, now its a big and bushy girl that I cant wait to smoke. I'll keep popping in, you just keep doin' what youre doin', and dont skimp out on the pics!

Damnit....I literally just trashed it.
but thanks on the advice. Ive been watering down my nutes super hard.
also i transplanted them to 1 gallon containers today. Think i did an okay job.
ummmmm...what else....
i wanted to know how often should i use nutes......i was gonna go once a week and water in between to break down salt. Good idea?
Thanks all. :cool027:
pic update soon...maybe 2moro:Rasta:
hope for some info.....
peace and budd

Nute usage is pretty much decided by the plants and the grower, there really isnt a set interval to use...its all related to plant size, how much water you give, how often, and so forth. In my setup, we nute maybe 2 or 3 times a week at the strength listed on the bottle for plants in flowering, and for plants in veg about 1 or 2 times a week, increasing the strength sa the plant matures. Either way, we always give the plants fresh water at the same rate (2-3 times a week/flower or 1 to 2 times a week/veg).

Dont worry about chucking a plant, as long as you have some healthy ones to tend to. Lookin forward to pics!

Bummer! I have actually done that a number of times back when I was experimenting with germinating seeds. Just remember cannabis is a very resilient plant and unless the root structure suffered quite a bit of damage there should be no problem. Looking good so far :goodluck:

Also, your cab looks a lot like mine just a bit bigger. I am using Miracle Grow too (yuck)
