SAFC Suns: Early Miss Auto, NL Auto. (Super soil)
1. Set up temporary lighting
2. Make super soil compost tea
3. Mix liquid seaweed
4. Mix foliar spray
5. Inoculate 10 gallons of homemade super soil mix for next months crop
- Early Miss Auto seeds arrived from Seed King on 5-14-21 and went straight into the soak. They were towel soaked 5-15 and popped into inert soil on 5-16-21.
- New lights have been purchased and are to be delivered 5-18-21 along with 3gal sack pots for the 7 new Early Miss Autos.
updated Photos of the NL Auto Fems under seedling lights are attached.
be well everyone!
- Did a heavy water last night and the boxes under the buckets got wet and collapsed.
- I lost the runty NL Auto and had to replant one NL Auto.
- Six of the seven Early Miss Auto have sprouted.
- planted three new Early Miss Autos to make up for the one lost and the two no sprouts
- Air pots arriving today
- New lighting system arriving tomorrow
- Changed over to new lights this week
- Added a larger fan
- Adjusted PH downward with coffee and PHdown
- Half Pinched three NL autos
- Started low stress training
- One NL auto fell and was repotted. (Definitely stunted)
- Removed a few fan leaves that were blocking light from lower bud sites after LST
Showing some strange foliage from the pinch sites. I assume that it a combination of everything, which is fine. Everything was done at the same time to hopefully reduce the stress time down to one week total.
Everything is well in the garden. I had a fungus gnat annoyance but the diatomaceous earth has that under control.
Kudos to super soil This is the most neglected grow of my life. I have family that surprised me with a visit and I am now sleeping in my grow room and had to drop my light cycle & intensity down before they think that I am smoking meth and welding in my room 24/7. These lights are fucking bright!
I need these girls to flower soon as I am on a time schedule to move 2000+ miles away at the beginning of august.
Lil baby pistils!
Both the NL Autos & Early Miss Autos started to flower last night.
I need to do some training, build boxes to level plant heights, and get rid of the mosquitoes in my water buckets.
Craziest grow ever gang. All of my plants and I have relocated 1600 miles. Swear to God. I am now converting my 7’ x 16’ cargo trailer into a tiny home grow lab.
the girls are all doing great.
The NL autos got “leggy” on me. Not sure if it was the three days of light dep or the super soil mix that I only used on them.
The Early Miss Autos are very impressive. I made that soil with some gross ass shit.
the buds are fat little fuckers and growing every day.
The girls are thriving it seems. I have a creek in the yard for fresh water and compost bins that have been cooking for a year. The biggest night crawlers I’ve seen live in there. I potted them in the mix too.
the NLAs are leggy and I hope that they fill in. They were started earlier that the early Miss autos but the EMAs will finish weeks earlier. Beautiful big buds that are thick as all get out.
I have a cheepo 3in 1 ph meter that I thought didn’t work I used river water from Texas early on and the meter read 7.5-8 ph I thought it didn’t work
today I used it in raw compost and it read 3.5-4ph My pots said 4.5-5ph I hope that thing is reading 1-2ph high! I added PHup and some concrete lime to boost it back up in a timely manner.
All buds are super stinky and you would all be proud to grow them.
I started new regular seeds this week. I will start a new post that will be critical of DNA Seeds but flattering in other ways.
I hope the plants like snake piss’n shit because this guy and I share a water hole.
the plants are doing well. Seeing some genetic variation within the strains, and I sure wish that I had some pollen on deck.
Two of the EMAs I like for different reasons, and one of the NLAs is superior to the other two.
Had they not been stunted during the trip I can only assume that the EMAs would have vegged longer. There was also minimal training done to the EMAs in the smart pots. I am going to try burning holes in the cloth pots with a soldering gun in the future as It may cauterize the hole to prevent it from tearing under stress.
All of the plants will be finishing at different times and require different watering practices now so I have my work cut out for me.
The small plants in the starter pots are the very pricy Grandaddy Perp (Fem) and Original Skunk #1 (Regular)photos from DNA seeds. I want SK1 pollen for storage and a GDP mother uniformity in the flowering area and flowering schedule, but that is for a different grow journal.
I had problems loading the last photos… because I was high.
The ol’ Iphone was able to snap a few pics through the looking glass and these girls are too young and too blonde to smoke in my house. I like ‘em a little bit older with auburn hair if you know what I mean.
Here is the snake that protects the spring that I am so grateful to have 40 feet from my grow trailer. Don’t mess around on “Copperhead Road”
Mid 90s with 75% Humidity for the past week and some change.
Some changes and mods are going down this week to deal with the climate. First The light cycle was changed to run at night while the humidity is lower and the temp dips down into the mid 70s. Next the Dehumidifier ‘that i repaired at 2am’ is going in. Following that A friend is donating an electric AC unit off of his old Winnebago that will mount onto the roof of the trailer. Score! It will be my first trailer roof top AC retrofit and hopefully the last, but i am not afraid. Cleaning the roof well enough to seal the unit to the aluminum sheet metal top will be a bear no doubt. I better test it before i cut the roof huh gang? CO2 tank needs to be filled as well. Thank Geezus my brother was fired last week bc I can use his help… sucker
There will also be some unintended flushing. The Mickey mouse PH meter that I have was stuck at 5 so IPH’d up, and now it needs to go back down. I got what I paid for, Such is life.
A bad day growing the pot is better than a good day working for someone else! Let’s keep the shiny side up, and the dirty side down gang, and happy growing!
