So much reading led me to believe not to transplant AUTO's. I will next time for sure. Or just learn a good technique to Water seedlings in 5 gallon pot without transplanting --> Anyone?
Well Auto, I'm gonna tag along here from time to time, cuz I'm growing my first auto, a Wedding Cake :slide: and honestly I just started it like a photo, in a solo cup :hmmmm: and I've only got a 3 gallon pot to transplant it into :goodluck::snowboating:
Here's my auto @ 3 days from breaking surface

She looks great.

I will be posting many pics for my first grow. Keeping my fingers crossed with the Low Stress Training it seems to be working. I started the LST at the 4th node I read the younger the better to start training:hmmmm:. I give thanks to all members of the 420 Forum for all the knowledge to get started. I read about 6 months before jumping in. Im starting to realize patience not to over water and minimal Nutes will go a long way.

FYI - Im using Jacks 30-10-10, 1/16 to 1/8 dose only a lil CAL-MAG about the same dose. For flower I will be using Jacks 10-30-20 also a reduced dose.

Thats what I should of done. So many opinions out there whether to start Auto flowers and transplant or place them in their final home from the start. <--which I did, both placed in a 5 Gallon Smart Pot.

Well I've never grown an auto, but, I imagine they're like any other plant, their roots have to fill the pot they're in before the top shows growth...that's why I started in a solo cup, well, cuz that's what I always do :19: I guess we'll take this trip and learn together :high-five:

August 18. Watered with black strap Molasses un sulfured.

August 22. Day 46 Buds are stinking on the Blueberry Cookies much more mature than the Alaskan Purple which is only 2 days behind at germination. Seems to be about a week or more behind in total. Need another in-line fan and carbon filter to start drying the Blueberry Cookies when ready. Watered with black strap molasses and Epson salt 1/4 teaspoon per gallon watered approx 2-3 gallons. Did not change ph when tested it was 6.6-6.7. My soil PH when taking two slurrys as follows:

Blueberry Cookies PH slurry test
  1. 6.1
  2. 6.0-6.1
Alaskan Purple PH slurry test
  1. 5.7
  2. 6.0
  3. Didn’t do a third. Then watered as outlined.
Next water will be PH’ed 6.3 water 20-30 percent run off with 1/2 the molasses and skipping the epson salt.
