Kalasnikova autoflower (outdoor, Netherlands)

Hello fellow growers,

 

I'd like to share my progress.

 

I have 4 plants as you can see, the small ones are only about one week old. The bigger ones, are already blooming. I planted them around the end or March and the beginning of April. Sadly, the weather started to get terrible from then up until a few weeks ago. I did not want to throw them away because I believe they will produce something, I'd like to test the taste of them :) They look quite decent besides a few flaws, but the buds are looking good. The smell is not too strong, which is good. I hope the weather will continue doing good so I can grow much bigger plants from them.

 

I quite underestimated how complicated it would be to grow autoflowers, but I'm starting to understand them a little more as they progress. If anyone has some tips and tricks I'd like to know! I'll try to keep this post updated.

Hi,

 

I have grown Kalasnikova before from GHSC, indoor, and it gives a decent yield and is a very nice smoke. A lot of others have complained about the genetics but I WILL be growing it again because I had success with it and I have more Kalashnikova seeds in my inventory.

 

As your your plants, good look but it appears you have the pots sizes mixed up. Those bigger plants are in very serious need for bigger pots and the little ones should have been started off in smaller pots then potted up into bigger pots as the root system gets established.

 

Just a little advice but those big ones REALLY need much bigger pots unless they will become root-bound, deteriorate and cause you no end of problems.

Hi Sal!,

 

sorry I haven't been looking on the site. Thank you so much for your advice. I know the bigger ones have way too small pots, but because of the bad weather I kinda gave up (they were already blooming at a very small size). I decided to leave them in the pots and see how they do. One of them is producing some very nice buds, so I don't want to irritate them with moving them to another pot. They seem to be doing fine.

 

The small ones are doing great also, they are now in week 3 or so and have grown a lot since the past two weeks (at least, I think so). I will post a pic from my phone.

 

Somehow you can't see what you type when you use this site on your phone.

Yes, Kadaver, there are many features of this site that do not work well on handys and tablets.  Everything works best when one uses a full-sized laptop or base computer.

 

I believe I understand why you chose larger pots for the autos.  Autos don't well tolerate transplanting.  Because the recovery-time from transplanting cuts into the remaining lifespan of the auto-flowering plant, it is best to start an auto in its final pot.  You did good.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
