    New Old guy in Idaho

    Good luck with your grows! By the way, my older brother is out in Boise with his wife and 3 boys. I'll get back out that way at some point once Covid dies down.

    New Old guy in Idaho

    First, I apologize in a way for coming across like an expert. I got burned with bro science when I first got back into growing after a 20+ year hiatus. I planted 6 seeds in coco and pulled them all around day 15 and threw them in the trash. So I went back to what I know, which is soil, and...

    BoCoGrow's Roc Bud Inc auto grow update

    OK, I topped both pots with 1" more of the Build a Flower top dress kit and gave each 8 cups of RO water. That is the last feed until harvest, which should be roughly 3 weeks away. Still growing!

    I should add that autos are more sensitive to fertilizer than photos, so 1/2 the recommended strength is the rule of thumb, with 550 PPM being the high end of the range in late flower. A common pattern is water-water-fertilize. Don't try fertilizing more often, but rather, increasing the PPM...

    Hi and welcome to Marijuana Passion! From an auto grower I highly respect: Never let the soil dry out. Soil can become hydrophobic if allowed to dry so it will repel water. This in turn will create dry pockets in the soil and roots there will die. If your soil has accidentally dried out use a...

    Video recommendation: Future Cannabis Project -- Living Soil Conversations

    This video, while almost 3 hours long (I know, an investment) was one of the most fascinating conversations about growing cannabis in living soil I have watched. The guest, who on IG is knf_garden, talks a lot about how his growing style has evolved in living soil over the past 15 years of...

    Container/box design for wet environment

    You could also look into a few plastic utility sinks (without the hardware), cover the drain hole with screen before filling it with soil, and roll with something like that. I see home depot has a 20 gal sink for $40USD, for example. I like this because the sink legs mean you don't need to...

    When does the window close for the April contest? I didn't see a deadline in your post about it, but might have missed it. Edit: never mind, went back to your first post in the contest thread and found my answer.

    BoCoGrow's Roc Bud Inc auto grow update

    They are now taking water everyday without runoff. I'll need to remember next time to increase the watering schedule once they really start ramping up on bud and trichome productions. Definitely getting bigger each day.

    BoCoGrow's Roc Bud Inc auto grow update

    I went into the tent a few minutes ago and they don't look any different than the day before, except for more noticeable bud formation. They are fattening up daily.

    BoCoGrow's Roc Bud Inc auto grow update

    Thanks, amigro! Before I got this response, I ended up going back in and gave each plant another 4 cups of PH'd RO water. I was a bit surprised that there was no runoff since I was previously giving each 8 cups every other day and now gave them 8 cups two days in a row. So either what I had...

    BoCoGrow's Roc Bud Inc auto grow update

    Well, the plants have been doing well, with noticeable bud development and continued frost. Today, I switched to watering them 1/2 the amount on a daily basis vs. a full amount every other day. The reason is they were drying out too much, to the point where when I started watering, the water...

    Not getting good yields.

    Good luck with the photo grow! I have some photo seeds to try at some point. And I just watered my autos and for the first time forgot to PH. I keep getting in my own way...

    Not getting good yields.

    Perhaps try an XXL strain such as Ultimate Auto from Dutch Passion. I have these seeds but I'm growing some freebies right now while I figure out how to not f up my plants. Another heavy bud producer is Big Yield Auto from Phoenix. I have these seeds as well. The breeders recommend a pot...

    BoCoGrow's Roc Bud Inc auto grow update

    Given I'm growing autos, I'm also a member of the Autoflower Network (autoflower.net)...mods, if I'm not supposed to do that, just let me know. A very experienced and knowledgable grower on that forum predicted things would get worse before they got better, and man that was the truth. I was...

    BoCoGrow's Roc Bud Inc auto grow update

    I'll update this with pics probably every couple of days. I've been wanting to grow organic, but the plants haven't returned to full health (leaf color is still light or yellow-green), so when they are ready for water again tomorrow, I'm likely going to hit them with a dose of synthetics so...

    BoCoGrow's Roc Bud Inc auto grow update

    Hi folks, I posted a couple pics before in one of Weedhopper's threads, but thought I would just create a separate thread of my own. To get you up to speed, I've been growing 2 Roc Bud Inc autos that were freebies, so strains are unknown. Growing in 3 gallon fabric pots with FFOF soil and RO...

    Newbie Intro --> Grow Tent-->Seeds?

    Unfortunately I can't help with the light question. I hope someone else here can. To be transparent, I did some closet grows in San Francisco like 20+ years ago, so I'm in the process of relearning things myself, particularly since I'm using an LED light which is new type of light for me...
