Hello everyone, First of all, as usual, I would like to thanks Green House Seeds, Strain Hunters and all the people handling this contest, you are doing an amazing job. This grow will be focused on Auto-Bomb (Green-O-Matic x Big Bang Auto) and Sweet Mango Auto (Mango x Big Bang Auto). Two different crosses of Big Bang Auto, I already grown it and I liked it, was a very fragranced fruity smoke. I’ll use a regular photoperiod for this grow even if they are autoflowering, so it will start at 18h/6h at 250W 6400K° CFL bulb, then still 18h/6h at 600W MH 5000K° bulb after 2 to 3 weeks, then when the first flowers are out 12h/12h at 600W HPS 2000K° bulb. I'll use BioBizz Light mix as soil in the pre veg/veg, then AllMix when I repot, and will start the feeding with Powder Feeding Short Flowering (same as Mostly Indica) after the pre veg.

Click on a picture, then you can save it. Tips : Some tips for Auto Bomb and Sweet Mango Auto strains : -Auto Bomb : I noticed they react better if you water them with "cold" water. Because if you water them with tempered water (like 22°c), they may have the leaves dropping down after watering. 7 to 10 more days would have slightly increase the yield. -Sweet Mango Auto : React very well on both cool and tempered water. If you cut the lower branches you will have a big main bud so they react well to this. (But not recommended on a Auto). Smoke Report / Effects : -Auto Bomb : Hits strong and relaxing in same time, good for daytime if you are stressed or for bedtime. Fruity candy smell and taste. -Sweet Mango Auto : Hits strong, long lasting, good for daytime/bedtime. The smell is complex, Mango and milky sour fruits. Taste is like sour fresh mango, very fruity. Thanks for watching. -Peace.
Hey Hunters and Bam Bholenath! Today i wanna start my first grow journal. It's time to reciprocate and share my experiences with our dear herb. Pls be lenient with me and pls don't be stingy with constructiv critic and educational advices! Ok...let's start! I hope you enjoy! What's about this Journal? The cultivation of three KALASHNIKOVA AUTO of course GHSC seeds. What conditions i offer my Ladies? 2x18w Phillips TL-D for germination and "pre veggi" 1x250w Phillips Son-T master for veggi 'n flowering Plagron light mix Hesi nutriens 60x60x160 HomeBox XS 6l pots for veggi, maybe the hole grow 11l AirPots, maybe not, if i thought, that 6l are enough ...lets start! THE GERMINATION I trust Franco 'n Arjans approach, that's why i do it like they told us. I've put the seeds in a glass of water. In less then 10 hours the first seed popped and after 18 hours the last seed popped up. In the moment that i've saw that the seed are popped i've put 'em on 'n under wet citchen tissius. Further 16 hours later, every seedling has a "main root" (didn't know what the english word for "Pfahlwurzel" is ) When the little "main root" was about 0,5 cm i put them into jiffies. Now it was time for sunrise. I put them in my "veggi stage". Humidity is atm 70%-80% and the temperatur is between 25C-27C. So that is the Status Quo and now we has to be patient and observant. I'll keep you informed by up dating this journal as much as possible 'n useful. Cheers, gus
