Hey Fellow Growers,

Let's do this! So excited to grow with you all! My details are below:

Indoor grow in my 2x4x5 tent.

Canna Coco coir mixed with perlite.

Dr. Earth's Organic Dry Amendments (All Purpose 4-4-4 & Flower Girl Bud & Bloom Booster 3-9-4) mixed in my medium, then top dressing thereafter.

I'm using 1 800w (240w actual) COB LED & 1 600W (108w actual) LED both full spectrum. So 348 actual watts.

Strains: Auto Night Queen, Think Different Auto (Dutch Passion), & Early Miss Auto (Crop King Seeds).

Looking forward to germination!

Grow On!

Hey Fellow Growers,

Happy 4/20 & Germination Day 😜 ! "Let's get it started, let's get it started in here"!

Alright, so I was so pumped to start with you all today. It was great talking w/some of you throughout the day (4/19) via the chat. Here are my prep/germination deets:

Canna Coco coir - I went through and broke down any lumps/clumps.

SAFC 2019   Day 1 Germination   4 20 19   Prep 1

Then I added a 75/25 ratio of Dr. Earth's Organic Dry Amendments All Purpose 4-4-4 & Flower Girl Bud & Bloom Booster 3-9-4.

SAFC 2019   Day 1 Germination   4 20 19   Prep 2

Lastly, I added some organic perlite. I just eyeballed it.

SAFC 2019   Day 1 Germination   4 20 19   Prep 3

Once I mixed, here is what I had.

SAFC 2019   Day 1 Germination   4 20 19   Prep 4

So I filled up my 3 gallon fabric pots, wrote out my strains, & pulled out my seeds.

SAFC 2019   Day 1 Germination   4 20 19   Prep 5
SAFC 2019   Day 1 Germination   4 20 19   Prep 6

I put the seeds straight into their pots, watered slowly with de-chlorinated tap water, and covered w/a plastic bag to raise the humidity. I put them in the tent.

SAFC 2019   Day 1 Germination   4 20 19

So, now we wait 😓 ! This part is so nerve wracking. Well, wishing a successful germination to all!

Grow On!

Hey Fellow Growers,

Yes, we now have 100% germination and they all popped through the soil. Think Different came through a couple hours ago. Love how quick they grow. When I peeped in this afternoon, I just saw a tiny part of the curved stem starting to push through. Now, it looks like this....

Hey Fellow Growers,

The seedlings are growing nicely. Night Queen seems to have a little stretch & the Think Different needed some, so I switched their places in the tent. Seemed to work. Hope everyone is doing well.

Night Queen (Dutch Passion) - This girly right here is the leader of the pack & had to be supported cause she fell over once those leaves got bigger.

Hope everyone's girls are coming along!

P.S. Not sure why my photos are posting sideways recently, I'm doing the same thing as I've always done and it didn't use to do that. Is this something you can assist with @Dr-Coco?

Hey Fellow Growers,

I guess my post from yesterday, didn't make it, so here's a redo.

5/8/19 (Day 18)

I'm loving my garden. The girls are growing up nicely.

SAFC 2019   My Auto Garden   Day 18 from seed   May 8

I decided to top both Night Queen and Early Miss and see what happens. I'm going to give it a little longer before starting LST, though Night Queen is tempting me 🤨 , LOL. I have folded away the top fan leaves to let the lower sites get some light. They seem to have grown right before my eyes. I love how fast these girls are growing.

SAFC 2019   Day 18 from seed Early Miss Auto   5 8 19
SAFC 2019   Day 18 from seed Night Queen Auto   5 8 19

No topping for Think Different. I left her alone.

SAFC 2019   Day 18 from seed Think Different Auto   5 8 19

I will be top dressing all the girls tomorrow (5/9) since it will take a few days for the amendments to become available. Night Queen and Think Different will get a 50/50 mix of Dr. Earth's Organic All Purpose 4-4-4 / Dr. Earth's Flower Girl Bud & Bloom Booster 3-9-4.

Early Miss will get a 70/30 Flower Girl heavy mix. This will be her last top dressing, since she supposedly has only a 7 week seed to harvest timeline. I want her to use up what's in the medium and then the leaves. We shall see.

Hope everyone is having an awesome day!

Grow On!

Hey Fellow Growers,

So the topping seems to have worked on my Night Queen and Early Miss.

SAFC 2019   Day 21 from seed Night Queen Auto 1   5 11 19
SAFC 2019   Day 21 from seed Early Miss Auto   5 11 19

My Think Different is just growing how it will. I want to start LST on it, but the stem still doesn't seem thick enough or strong enough just yet. So I've been trying to tuck leaves to let some of the light get on the side branches.

SAFC 2019   Day 21 from seed Think Different Auto   5 11 19

I caved 🙄 and started LST on Night Queen early this afternoon. 

SAFC 2019   Day 21 from seed Night Queen Auto 2   5 11 19

She was ready though, cause a few hours later, the side branches shot up. I'll have to readjust my ties often it looks like, which is great!

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend!

Grow On!

Thanks @kushlove I'm trying 😀!

Hello Fellow Growers!

Hope you all are doing well. Things are going great in my garden. I've been doing LST to widen my girls out. They are responding nicely.

Night Queen - This girl is leading the pack w/growth. She was the first to start LST & I'm happy w/the growth.

SAFC 2019   Day 28 from seed Night Queen Auto   5 18 19

Think Different - This girl right here is the runt of the group. She is growing nicely, but is staying short and compact. I'm interested to see what she is going to do.

SAFC 2019   Day 28 from seed Think Different Auto   5 18 19

Early Miss - This girl is growing nicely and may even catch up to Night Queen. She is already showing pistols. This plant is supposed to be a 7wk seed to harvest, so I'm getting excited.

SAFC 2019   My Auto Garden   Day 28 from seed   May 18

So only 2 out of 10 of my GG 4 clones rooted but hey, I will take it! This was my first time trying to clone, so I am happy w/the results. One is growing nicely, the other, very slowly, but I did find new growth, which is why I still transplanted it to a 1 gallon pot. Here is the good one.

Hello Fellow Growers!

Hope you all are doing well. Things are going great in my garden for two of my girls. For Think Different, I think I have either splashed some of my dry amendments onto some of my longer fan leaves or I have nutrient burn or something. What say you lovely people?

Think Different - She is still the runt. Not sure why though 🙄? Other grower's Think Diff seems to be growing at the same rate as the rest. Not this girl, LOL.

Night Queen is growing strong. I still don't see any pistols yet. I'm going to spread out her branches more once I do.

SAFC 2019   Day 31 from seed Night Queen Auto   5 21 19

Early Miss is also growing nicely. She has pistols already.

SAFC 2019   Day 31 from seed Early Miss Auto   5 21 19

Overall, I'm happy w/my progress. I just need to get Think Different together.

Hello Fellow Growers!

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend so far! Since I was working in the garden doing more LST and preemptively top dressing my Night Queen and Think Different for the final time, I decided to take some pics and post an update. Also, I think both NQ and TD have pistols, but would like some confirmation from you all.

Early Miss (Crop King Seeds) - She is already in last few weeks of flower (7wk time frame supposedly).

SAFC 2019   Day 35 from seed Night Queen Auto 2   5 25 19

Think Different - Growing good but still the runt of the batch. I don't think she is going to get to much bigger (outside of any stretch in flower), cause I believe she also has pistols, but not so sure.

So far so good. I'm def going to need to get a de-humidifier as my RH is getting a little too high, smh. Now I just have to continue to water at a PH of 6.8-6.5, until harvest.

Hello Growmies!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic day! I was messing in the garden, so I decided to take some pics and post an update. The girls are doing great, though I'm still dealing w/high RH. I gotta get that dehumidifier when I get some dang money, smh.

Anywho, here are the ladies.

Think Different aka The Runt - She is growing and finally got slightly taller, LOL, but methinks her stretch has ended.

Night Queen aka Big Momma - She wants to take over! Love it though. I think she is in pre-flower, as some sites have pistols, but not all. So I'm not really sure.

These little babies right here are the only 2 who made it out of the 10 GG #4 clones I took. They are growing very well. I was a little iffy about the smaller one, but as you can see, she made it. I plan to just veg these until their Momma is harvested (around the same time as the TD & NQ). Then I'll flip these to flower.

All in all, I can't complain. I'm loving this thing we call growing and I love my garden 😍 😊 😘 !

Hello Growmies!

Just popping in for a quick update. The girls are doing OK. I believe I've gotten my PH issue handled for now. Still dealing w/high temps and RH, but nothing to be done about that until next week, smh.

Early Miss (Crop King Seeds) - This girl is in Wk 7 and is almost ready to harvest (per her stated seed to harvest time). I'm going to give her another week or so to further deplete the leaves.

I decided to move the bigger GG #4 clone to the flower tent & flip that now. I need the space. I also don't have the money/time right now to get more coco, perlite, pots, etc. to transplant (which I'm fine w/as this was an experiment on cloning to me).

How's it hanging Growmies!

I wanted to stop by to post an update (while I have some free time). Whewww...it's still hot and humid (damn rain) here and my temps got to 89F / 72% RH yesterday, smh. I need my AC like yesterday 😟,  but alas, still have to wait. My ladies are still soldiering through it though 🙂 .
