Hello Carty, I'm growing Auto. I have two Yumbolts Auto Fem. going. They are not doing so good. It's my lights two giixer 120w. Working on that. My plants are 9 weeks and small. But, they will smoke.

Learn from me brother.... I made all the mistakes, broke all their rules and grew some wicked auto's ... stunted plants are just as much in the breeding as the growing. Problem is, fast flowering times sells seeds to the kids with no patience. Unfortunately, this type of market has hurt breeders as they hunt for the faster finisher.... in autos this really sucks.. when I make beans goofing off, I looked for females that showed sex last giving her more time to veg. I found 3wks to a month makes for large autos.. males, I look for early trichomes on the calyx's and less leaf growth.... tall.
and again, the last one to show sex.. I'm a pollen slinger, real breeders search thru hundreds to accomplish this...

Follow this bro......
Start in 1gal plastic nursery pots until they show sex.. even if feminized.. the plastic pot allows the larger roots to develop first establishing the plants foot hold... build a nice root ball. Up pot into 3gal felt pot to finish, this will trim these big roots as they reach the edges and develop feeder roots, what u want.

Don't , don't.... feed week 1, over water, run on 24hr lights. either 20/4 or 18/6. try starting on 18/6 and flowering on 20/4 like I do. all plants need a dark cycle man...

My Auto mentor. Yehaaaaaaaaa😁
hahaha.... no worries. just love helping anyone I can do better. I'm far from a great grower, but I've learned from a lot of mistakes as I've always liked to experiment... learned a lot about autos doing just that...

And, I've got some started so let's follow these along on this grow....

I've made a few changes, always have a back up plan incase some seeds just don't show up, like just happened to me.
I put down 4 Zkittlez from Weedseedsexpress and 1 never germinated, but I usually plant them anyway... never showed up to the game. 3 did, however, within 36hrs 1 and stemmed over.... not had this happen in 15yrs or more.
So, 2 are up and going...

The 2 Blue Himalayan showed up, but after rethinking things I culled them for not being femininzed and put down 2 of Diggy Soze's Upzalberry Auto's feminized....

Confused yet...? lol.

Well, here is what we have going on as of now.....

As I watch these autos maturing my love for this type of growing is grabbing me yet again.... hmmmm?

Autos in both tents 30 days apart would pretty much keep us in meds much better....

2 Gomer's Su Prise

Soil: Roots Organics regular green bag.. You have to grind this soil up either by hand or find an old coffee grinder
and really get it loamy.. I do it by hand, by time I've completed it my hands are black from all the guano..
20211027_190738.jpg


Foods: Mills

Lights: LED 2 x 40w

Always wash your pots, fill halfway with soil, water lightly and allow that to pack naturally... fill remainder of
the way and water lightly again... now it's time to plant..
I use an old pot stem, push it down an inch, drop seedling in and lightly cover with a pinch of dirt... now I lightly
water using a dropper.. actually, you know them little tiny turkey baster looking things for sucking snot out of a babies nose... that things works so great for watering babies.... hehehe.

Hey Carty
Just found this thread.
You've put a lot of work into this and I'm sure it will be appreciated - I certainly love what you've done.
Hope you continue to post these detailed messages and pics.
I live in Spain but am about to go vitit my son & grandson in CA.
When I return in February - I'll be cleaning my pots etc ready for an early start in march/April.
I also prefer auto's (for the speed) and grow out on my large balcony in pots.
What's your thoughts on starting in small pots and repotting once roots are becoming well established?

well, you found it early on as we are just getting going back into Auto's... so pull up a bean bag.

I actually recommend it.. when I started growing Autos years back, tested everything and especially the do's and do nots.. and because I was having to sex 15 plants to find my 6 keeper females, who can afford 15 3gal pots of good soil.. yet it said, do NOT transplant autos.. did I listen, NOpe.. started them all in 1gal plastic el cheapo nursery pots.
Up until sexing, then up pot keeper females into 3gal felt pots to finish.. 2 gal minimum.

I believe doing so gets the larger establishing roots developed that gives the plant a foothold.. by up potting next into a felt pot, it will begin air trimming the roots as they reach the edges and start building feeder roots for up taking foods and water...

Also I'm guessing those are airports you're using ?
I have to work with low budget.
How much do they cost?
Oxypots, Airpots... I call em bumpy pots... lol. and yes, not the cheapest by all means.. almost $10ea.. although my hydro store has cheaper ones that are as cheaply made... lol. I prefer the 2gal taller ones with red or yellow bottoms.. perfect for autos.. especially feminized as you can start them in these pots...

Felt pots are fairly cheap too.... so start them in 1/2 to 1gal plastic, after sexing, into felt... they love roots organics soil loaded with all the guanos too.... luck man

Hey Big.... I've gotten rid of so many seeds last year I'm down to just a handful, and half of them are from you .. lol.
Imagine that Snow Leopard as an auto.. omg. ZeroZero is gonna run her next year outside for us see how big he can get her, or wide at least... hehe.
I need to get me a last days baggie going.. my problem would be dipping into it... hahaha..

Some real Road Kill Skunk eh? used to be the Hells Angels held that cut and nobody else had best not have it.. doh.
Last real skunk I had came from the Mtns of Humboldt grown by a friend.. 6mos = 50lbs of some of the stinkiest weed... could have a half Z up stairs in the townhouse... people walk in the front door and know what we had for sale that day.... The Kind we called it... Lime green , purple, orange... omg. tasted of menthol.. best of luck on them seeds and appreciate ya thinking of me.. Best thing to do is leave them inside a bud.... muwahahaa

You are the man Carty
Thanks Brother Pute.. and I must say. A few good peeps are making me look good by gifting me feminized seeds and making my life so much easier... big thanks to Diggy Soze, & Dave n Marc with Weedseedsexpress for thinking of this guy for getting their seed stock exposure... kudos guys

Carty my Man , Swede came over to the homestead the other day and told me when she got out of her car , she immediately thought there was a dead skunk over on the county highway about a block away

the snow leopard has some shiva skunk in its genes and the ecsd x Ogers has some super skunk in them and these are the first pollination which I think brings a lot of diversity to the gene pool....

mabe the expres is the shiva or the super skunk , who knows....

yeah I hear you on the seed inventory , I will pass all mine down to my kids who have come to appreciate the medicinal effects of cannabis and they seeds will be put to good use...

but yeah , I try and send out a bunch of seeds around Christmas and will do,so again this season...some,chem crosses , c99 , chem 91 , Malawi , ecsd x Ogers , and some,snow leopards

and I will also have a Bigs Mix , which will be a bunch of the strandivars above and some unknowns....
