atrox's Sweet Mango on Coco (16.04.2013)

Recommended Posts

Hi Friends !!!

Time has come and atrox is starting his automatic cup... Thanks Greenhouse for the 10 seeds.

Because i have right now a whole lot other plants going too i was only able to crack 3 seeds this time. But another time

they show a perfect germination. 3 of 3 are now into rockwool cubes.

I will grow them in 11L coco. Mixed 50/50 with perlite. Dont know if that is most suitable for autos but that is what i use now on every plant i have. Not sure if i use the Powderfeed but i rethink that, possibly i use it.

But the issue is that all my other plants are now happy with canna coco a+b and fishmix...

we'll see for the first days feeding is pointless anyway.

I begin with throwing the seeds to 24° water and leave them there for 12 hours near to the snake lighting

:D

After that i move them to wet towels on a small plate, same temp and environment...

I dont use ph adjust in that first hours, first when i put them into rockwool i adjust my water to a ph of 5.5 -6 with canna ph-.

Here are the pictures to my first actions

water seeds:

Then i start making ph controled water and get my rockwool ready

post-14547-0-56570200-1366243474.jpg

when handling with chemicals, always use ph/ec meters

Thats what i look at right now

3 seeds in rockwool inside the mini greenhouse with t5 lighting. They have some MM clone friends with them

I will document every step as clearly as possible. Questions or ideas for improvements welcome at any given time you find me in the chat too...

I just finished the work on my selfbuilded co² system.

Details to that and all about my other grow you find here:

I will decide about the magic 12 or 18 hour question sometime the next days, you could maybe help me with that hehe.

peace and all other growers best luck for everything....

great start man very nice presentation :) And looks like you did everything perfectly :) only thing i would have done diferently is put the seeds directly in the cube at the 24hour picture instead of waiting the 36hours, as soon as tail broke or is starting to go out i prefer t move them to cube, but well it's not a rule lol only my preference ;)

Keep coming the very nice updates man those ladies should look good ;) prepare a bottle of cal/mag if you decide to go with the PF in coco just in case your water is not strong enough in Cal :)

Have a good grow man!

Thank you brothers... I didnt look at many other auto grows so far but will do next days :D

I have been busy, Mangos showed roots and i transplanted imidiatelly to the 11L end pots.

For the first time in medium i gave a very light fishmix solution on PH 5.5 EC 0.5

ok i make it a bit more easy

post-14547-0-58895200-1366607378.jpg

That was the 12h home for the Mangos in the flower room. When hps turn off i transfer the girld to my cfl+t5 veg area.

Will start at 20h first week

Then try as long 18h as long as i am able to switch rooms daily.

Finally i just let them chill with the 12h ladies to finish them...

That is pretty much the plan about this...

And this is the second home in the veg tent:

Think the babies are happy in the new pots.

Still 12h hps growlux

8h cfl+t5

Since the growshop didnt have cal/mag i use the canna series feeding on them. Today they had the first very light a+b with additional fishmix from biobizz. Just on a EC 1.2 PH 5.6

Nice looking wee baby's.. Them big pots is a key :notme: One re-pot 4 life. Just I will plant them lower up to two real leaves(this keep them no to lanky/tall). I'm sure they turn very nice for U.

Good job!

Thank you very much guys.

And yes Pi2, 1 pot is all an auto should see. I did the wrong way with 2 repots in a past automatic try. Well i had some nice weed then but it was too skinny for me in personal.

The 11L pots are even the biggest i use right now. I have some coming fat plants in 7L coco so i think potwise this babies are well set up

:D
