PTGC Benders: Original Auto Chemdawg by FastBuds
Very excited to start the this new grow/collaboration with the PTGC!!
Had some overcrowding issues last run so scaling back to 4 plants for this one.
Original Auto Chemdawg-Fastbuds
Do si Dos Auto from Barneys Farm
Mephistos Wedding (Auto)
Triks F5 from Twenty20 Mendocino (Auto)
Gonna start these around September 1st so that they auto “flip” around October 1st. Meanwhile i am updating my drainage and auto watering to accommodate my new layout. Also SUPER EXCITED to run my brand new mars hydrp SP3000 for this grow which i won last grow challenge during a giveaway right here on Coco for cannabis! Thanks again and again. Can’t wait to see how it performs.
Safest bet for these autos i think is some bending. Gonna use the plant benders and garden wire as my tools. Hopefully with more room to access each plant i can really give special attention to training these soon to be beauties properly
Will post some pics of updated tent soon along with my yields from last grow. 2 curing, 2 plants hanging and 3 in the dark. Trim jail is imminent 🙃😶🌫️
See everyone soon!!!
Psyched to start this next grow man! Just hooked up the new light and wow, i think im gonna be very happy with it. Drainage is ready for a test run. Splurged on the ccfc recommended pump and can’t wait to try it out. Have to reroute my halo lines and im done.
And that sour bubbly auto i had last grow yielded 2.5 oz. Smells great but i may have overbaked them a bit.
will post some completed setup pics soon
hey buds! So here are some setup pics. Just about done here. Gonna start germination this weekend hopefully tomorrow.
drainage is pumping out to another 5gallon bucket with a pump as well to send it out of the basement. It is running super smooth so far.
auto feed lines are ready for the halos. Not gonna redo the whole thing in case i change setup again. Just gonna leave the 3 extra valves closed tight. Sorry if my reservoir closet looks terrifying but it keeps everything tucked away nicely. Starting to get carried away down here😂😂
im double buffering my coco right now and hoping to fill my containers in next 24 hours. Really psyched to get this going!
Here’s a more finished setup pic with halos and grow bags in place. Double buffered coco with 20% perlite.
My solo cup is also ready to go for the side challenge.
solo cup will feature a fugue state x forum stomper cross (mephisto freebie)
also a pic of my seed packages which are starting to pop and hopefully in coco in 24hrs
see you soon
grower love ✌️
All five strains have sprouted thankfully so here we go week 1 🥳🥳
i kind of spaced and threw em right in final container but im gonna stick with it and see what happens
Everything looking pretty ok after week 1
my starting ec was out of control for some reason so i watered down my reservoir a bit and im recalculating.
but 2nd cotyledons are popping up, maybe slight nute burn on tips of first leaves but trying to manage that
my triks got a little stretchy, any advice from my growmies or dealing with the stretching? I will research as well but love hearing from you
Hi friends, so these girls are 2 weeks old, sprouted 10 days ago and overall looking good i think. My solo cup challenge contender is not looking too good but is what it is, i’ll try less frequent feeding to start
A little concerned about their vertical growth however. Seems to be a lot going on beneath these stumpy little canopies but maybe im getting ahead of myself being their only 14 days old? Let me know any thoughts growmies, thanks!! 💚
Finally got to do some bending 🥳 Heres my Mephisto Wedding
Heres the triks
Heres Do si dos
And my solo cup challenger is doing better ☺️
see you soon gonna check all my growmies journals today!!
So my baby girls are growing up fast 😂 Been training daily with the little 90degree benders and tying branches down to bag .
Chemdawg is looking great, easy to train. Can’t wait for this one, visions of gloopy running rosin
do si dos has been difficult, very wild and bushy
meph wedding has been great. New leaves shoot straight up 🤔 but eventually drop
and my solo cup a little droppy but flowering already, guessing because of smaller medium?
heres some pics grower love
So theres been alot going in this tent, good and bad…
Im currently battling fungus gnats. Trying top crop spray as well as apple cider vinegar/soap traps and H2O2 x H2O mixture. Monitoring with sticky cards.
Had some watering issues, possibly caused by a clog in my pump. I found some algae buildup plus i added armor si to my nutes and i may have caused a gloppy lockout situation with the cal mag. I’ve since been trying to be more mindful when mixing the nutrients and get my runoff back to a regular routine
And the defoliation is endless, especially with the Do si dos. So heres some pics.
Also my solo cup is closest to maturity and may yield a couple sticky frosty cookie buds
Heres the solo cup
Heres Chemdawg, lot of yellow tips. Not crispy so tried adding a bit more nitrogen to reservoir. See what happens
Do si dos could have fan leaves removed all day long
Triks a little stretchy than rest but still looking good I think
And Mephisto’s Wedding looking frosty already!! Uhhhh apparently I forgot to take any pictures of her and its lights out🙃😂…. Next post!
Hello buds, man its been wacky…. Was having some serious issues with autowatering, like flooding first feeding and later no run off at all. This has been going on and on and has been making me crazy until I remembered THE SIPHON EFFECT!!!
I had changed my setup and reservoir was to high and flooding first feeding. Luckily my auto drain kept up 99% of the time. Sooooo happy I finally figured it out. Fungus gnats and some powder mildew have been a minor nuisance as well but growth has been amazing
do si dos
and the solo challenger forgotten cookies
Grower love ✌️
Hey Growmies, hopefully everyone had a nice thanksgiving.
so this tent is done, some drying some curing
Chemdawg is curing with about 50g of bud and 70g of trim. Wasn’t thrilled with how she ended up but hoping she presses good.
was able to keep WPM to minimum and lost only a few buds and some trim. Sprayed and cleaned the bejeesus out my tent to get rid of any left over mold or gnats.
the triks, do si dos and meph wedding cake are all insane… great yields for autos (2+ ounces each) and super frosty and stinky. Triks super sweet kush smelling and wedding is sweet gas ⛽️ . Do si dos super bright green with firey red hairs
also my solo cup yielded 7g of bud so not bad
it was fun as always growmies , hope to see my friends on the next one. Try to post some more finished product pics and look forward to seeing all your results
