SAFC Small Grow Tents: Tall & Skinny vs Short & Stout

So I am going to grow a big tall slender  Acapulco Gold Autoflower  next to a short fat Magnum Autoflower.  I have two lights so I can run the plants at different heights, without issue. I don't think I will win any awards for this grow but a good old time will be had by all. I don't plan on stunting my small plant, as I still want a decent harvest. I will start with two seeds of each strain. One strain is not feminized so I will be sending samples off for sex testing after the first node appears. I am going to opt into the size matter challenge. I cannot get a straight answer on what constitutes the biggest Auto. Just getting you know when you see it answer. Well everyone I wish you luck on your grows, and may the biggest stickiest dicky win this one (snicker snicker snicker). My girlfriend Humbleweeds will be backing me up on this challenge so I cannot take all the credit for whatever comes out the tent. Thank you steering committee for organizing this one and a big shout out to Jordan for all the effort. Growers Love ❤️

After 24 hours in the water it is time to put them in the starter cubes and the propagation tray.

We got two out of 4 to launch one might be a male hope not but if it is I won’t mind running my lights at half power or maybe I can train one plant to use the entire 4x2 space.

Well today is the day 4th node started, and they got clipped faster than Superman running at Mach 5. Autos are never late so you have to stay on top of them if you want them to grow your way.

Well I don’t get it why do they call it low stress training I just snapped one of my stems on one of my girls. Argh oh well taped her up, and we will see how she does.

Well there will be no tall vs short on this one, oh well it is what it is. Big plans can lead to epic failures, especially with seeds you buy from a seed bank. However the grow is still going well, and I am having fun with it. I enjoy watching these plants grow. It gives a sense of accomplishment, and since it is a beloved plant it creates a family of people that love this plant. I'm curious of the evolution of this plant, and it's psycho active properties. It is a naturally growing plant but why does it effect humans in the way it does? Everyone here has a love for it's properties, some find comfort, some find pain relief, a lot find stress relief. I just enjoy of consuming what we are creating here, a love of something in common. 


Okay now that I got out of the way back to the regularly scheduled program.

They are getting bigger, and bushy I toped each one twice as the nodes I wanted to top at came up. I don't like cutting productive leaves until they are done providing so my plant is bushy.

I think I am addicted to the airpots all I have to do is rinse them off and they are ready to go again. Plus this was the easiest lowest stress pot up for me and my girls. Plus that root ball is insane, where did all that coco go?

Well the plants are in the bolt phase, and they found a new tent to occupy.

They are in the tent with the auto dosing auto furtigating tent. They are starting to take off!

It has been a minute and I love seeing where I was vs where I am today. I am sure we are guilty of this pleasure if the grow is going well.

These girls are being fed by my most Rube Goldberg creation yet. It seems to be working there a few issues but it is working. Here is some pics of how deep down the rabbit hole you can go.

What would you do for a Cana cookie? Me I am willing to design and build crazy contraptions to add liquid nutrients into water. All you need is a syringe and patience right? You also need to be present tomorrow I am off to work for the next month in other states, I will get to come home for a few days here and there but now we are going on auto pilot.

Well crap havent been gone for more than 24 hours and hit two snags, on my system. 1) PCs do crash and require reboots, so I lost 6 hours of control over my system lights stayed on, and no plants got watered for 6 hours, until I could have my garden assistant reboot the PC. second one of my feeder lines poped off it's feed line. I now need to have my garden assistant cut and re install the line to get that plant's ring dripper to work again. So right now I think that a automated grow is difficut at best. I was hopping not to tap the garden assistant aka "Humbleweeds" to fix these issues. So now I have to tap her twice. I need to re think things as this is the oposite direction I am aming for no user input except pressing icons on a phone or tablet. I had much worse failure modes in mind but I guess this is where I am at but who cares about my logistics problems lets see how the plants look and how much progress has been made in the past day.

So my ph has been crashing trying a remote sanitize cycle, normally the PH rises over time when running but lately the ph is falling causing my auto doser to keep on making baches of PH down to keep the res in check. So dosed 2 gallons of 450ml h2o2 sanitation solution to run thru the recirc loop, to try and kill whatever is growing in the recirc loop and res. Hopefully this fixes my issues with the ph crashing in my system. We will see, if this fixes it. However I think my res is going anaerobic and I will have to add bubblers back into the res.

Up now is up and down is down my ph is working the way I expect it too my res is no longer hypoxic dose the res and the ph is stable, trends up instead of down. I am happy that I can do this thru my phone. I might be early to the party but this is the future.  I am working on the future now, trying to make it cheap for the massses.
