NYGC Jack: Seedsmans auto Jack Herer
Hello fellow growers, Dub here to start my Jack Herer auto journal. I have a 5 pack of the auto Jack and will be growing one for the NYGC. I have wanted to grow this strain for some time and also have a single photo Fem freebie from seedsman as well. I'm hoping that this auto grow along with others in the challenge will jump start my desire to grow the photoperiod.
This is my first journal here but hopefully not my last! I do have a cannabuzz profile as well and post semi-frequently. I started growing in dwc for a few years and took several years off, currently I've been growing for about a year this time and have really been into the organic/ living soil methods. In looking forward to everybody's grows, happy growing!
Planted the seed directly into the 3 gallon final container with great white mycorrhizae, the soil is from a previous gelato autoflower in supersoil. The autoflowers was chopped 6 months or so ago and a dense cover crop of clover went wild... About 2 weeks ago I chopped the cover crop and topped with compost and added red wrigglers, and 3 days ago I top dressed with bio live and mulched with rice hulls. Ps. I suck with transplanting autos... I'm going to work on that but not today... Lol
Well seed one never germinated , dug up the area and it was still just a seed. Popped a second seed in water and planted. It's above ground (finally...), I'm a little late but not out of the game yet!
Day 50 update. She's growing pretty decent, stretching her stubby little arms. I'm having an aphid infestation in my grow bed (8" away) that I'm currently treating with beneficial bugs. The aphids don't really seem to like this plant much, so that's a positive! I've added some light bondage and have been spraying the lowest branch with sts solution from twenty20 Mendocino,hopefully I can post pictures of some good results.
