i have them on a 20 hr on 4 hrs off schedule for now.... im not sure if im gonna continue on the 20 hrs or switch to 18/ 6 once the preflowers show ill have to wait and see how it responds to this coco medium i picked up a bunch of citric acid to use as ph down i know phosphorus acid is better but i can get citric acid for really cheap and i can't see vitiman C being to harmful to the plants its also really potent stuff only a few grains and it drops a hole degree if anyone has any experiences with coco or can way in on citric acid effectiveness or where i can purchase some thing that will work it would be appreciated

Just Planted some NEW BEAN's 2 GHSC Flowerbomb Kush, 1 Humboldt Seed Organization Desert Diesel and 1 Humboldt Seed Organization Lost coast og this grow will be a full organic. so i am just waiting on them to pop!

Damnsad to hear about the accident man :(

But i see you rebounced really fast and those baby are already looking good :D
Careful with the powder on the seedling when you don't use the "mother" type, dose it reaaaaally lightly first 2 weeks. You do it by weight gr/L or with your EC meter if you have one?

unfortunatly thats one thing i dont have, i really want one but at the hydro shop its so exspensive and the ones they have are only ppm not ec i know its pretty stupid to start a grow in coco without one something that i let slip my mind in the perperation if any one knows anywhere in canada i can get a cheap one that works. i figured tho in the mean time i would just go super light with everything and see how the plants react then adjust so for the seedlings i am going super light with both the flroanova and the powderfeeding i have to admit the powderfeeding is a hell of a lot easyer to work with.

the main problem i have with the floranova is its consistancy its like thicker then choclate syrup so its really hard to mix and it seperates so you have to shake it up a hole lot its also really stinky and messy it sticks to the measuring cup and its so condensed that it says on the label to onle use .625ml per L of water the only good thing about it is that its really water soluble one it hits water it mix's up really well. but also the powder feeding is as well extremely water soluble once you stir the water a little it disappears.

but both seem to work pretty good for seedlings when used correctly in coco i probably wouldent use it in a rich soil medium but once the seeds popped when using water that has been left out for over 24 hrs at room tempurate, and came out the soil i decided it would be smart to add alittle nutrients to the water it says on the powderfeeding bag to use 2.5 grams of powderfeeding per 10 L's of water so thats a quater gram per L or 0.25g's per L i didnt feel right starting at that level so i weight out 0.025 but mixed it with a L and a half of water.

the flora nova it says use .625ml / L of water with it i did pretty much the same thing i had to vigorously shake the bottle for like 20 min's this will become easyer once the bottle empty's alittle bit but it doesent mix well when its full because of how thick its and i sucked it out the bottle using a 2 ml syring with out the needle tip and mixed probably closer to .6ml per L of water. and i am gonna kinda adjust as necessary until i get a hang of using coco .

it is a way different medium them soil i thought going into this that it would be easy but to make the transition i think ill do fine it just seems as if using coco is a lot more hands on then soil , which is great for me cause it gives me something to do i wish i could just grow weed all day long its alot of work to grow weed but when you love doing it it isent like work at all its crazy but even just doing a few plants when i leave them for a few hours all i can think about is getting back to them its kinda why i prefer to grow autos because with autos on a 20 hr on schedule you can spend more time with the plants where if you have to have a 12 hour dark schedule its best to leave them be especially if you are working in a small space.

erf too bad man, i think tokage said on ebay they were cheap andworking nice, maybe you should ask him ;) I know how expansive they can be in hydro shop :(

But i'm sure you'll take care of them even without it like you always do ;)
Have a good grow

little ones getting bigger pretty fast. Too early to judge what feeding works better thou..In 1month we know more...
Good luck
My NL Autos are at the end of week 4 and I expect them to start flowering any day.. Doing nicely but a bit smaller than the Sativas & Indicas...Time to lower from 18 hours to 12..

bam why would you change the light cycle with an auto strain they give the best yeilds if you keep them on a steady schedule i found i get the best results and biggest yeilds when i have my autoflowering plants on 20 hr's on 4 hr's off straight from day 1 till the end.?

update from the end of day 10!

ok so i had a long conversation with my friend who grows using advanced nutirnets bud candy and he told me its a good idea toadd alittle tiny bit of bud candy to your water on young plants as well he told me in my set up i should try adding only 0.25ml of bud candy per L he said that it is good for the vitimans and carbs in low doses so i took his advice i am now using 2.0 grams of powderfeeding per 10 L and with the flora nova i ad 0.600 ml per L of water i only add about a cup a day with a ph set to 5.5. the tempurature is altittle high at 27-30 degrees at the moment but hopefully soon it will get alittle cooler outside in the mean time i am going out to purchase another fan.

nice man they have a grow nicely since last time i saw them :D

Both are looking very nice, maybe the flora a little darker, 2g per L of powderfeeding sounds a lot too me, are you sure about those dosage?
Have a good grow man keep us updated ;)

I got only 4 AUTOS but 6 femalized Sativas & Indicas plus 2 seedlings in the grow room, in order to put theam into flowering I have to lower the lighting schedule to 12 hours.
These are a bit taller and stronger ( at least 4 of them) 2 are about the same height as the NL AUTOS , the AB is beyond, I had 2 accidents with her and she sits in the biggest pot - due to organization matters; but she will make it, too.

I flushed the 3 NL autos and 6 females yesterday for the fit time. DAMN the Bio rhizoonic and other nutes stink !!!! Unbelievable Flushed them properly with CANNa FLUSH. Now they all l.ook ready to start flowering I would say. The BIg bang stillis inside, cannot decide to cut it. On thursday morning the guy checking the heating comes and the burner is directly next to the grow room,. so I have to keep from harvesting the Big Bang till after his visit.
Then I wll hold that strict 12 hour scheme - Maybe I put the BB out of the grow room in a dark place from wednesday night. I will see

Wished someone could tell me which of the 6 plants is the Great white Shark ? I got one Big Grapefruit 2 C 99 hybrids & 2 Bubble Gummers and one of each coming up for a late christmas crop- Lol
I should take a break till spring after I harvest these 12 girls. Took me 5 month for one grow circle to finish, so 5 month from now ias new years eve..lol

Can you spot the Sharkie genomatic 87 ?
Maybe the one in front in that round pot ?

To the extreme left the little one in the big round pot is the AB the NL Autos are near the back wall in these 3 Air Pots.

Do you se the ganja plant outside in the garden ?
Arjan Haze 3 started outside, later given to me to foster her but she could nit stand the HPS or the nutes and so she gots to finish outdoors at least till iit is in week 4 or more in flowering. She is more than 3 month old , closer to 4 month and topped once..

check te windrose on that postcard from Noord Holland. The piece of waterhash i placed on it after I put it in the pressing metal kit.
Puhh what a killah high (Jack Herer trichomes)..

Excuse these threadcraps my friend we all love canna porn don't we ?!
