First Week (May 8). For growing I use a 4.5 m2 plantation. I plant seeds into the ground without germinating them. My location is southern Ukraine, namely Kherson region. I’m only reporting about Auto Gagarin, but in fact 4 autoflowering plants participate in this cultivation: a White Widow and AK-47 XL plants were accompanying. Since it is my own garden where I am growing, the soil needs little loosening: refreshed with new harvests annually, it is perfect in aeration and contains enough organic waste for anything to grow and flourish. I plant my seeds, pour them with root-forming solution and consequently repeat the latter action during next three days.
On day 4 I see a tiny sprouting growing above the spot where I planted my Gagarin seed. I start watering it twice a day in small amounts. Luckily, my plantation is hidden from anybody’s view behind corn, so no matter how tall the plant will grow, I don’t have to limit its growth.
On day 6 Gagarin has developed her two first leaf pairs and I can see where the next one is going to be, looks so fragile. I’m encouraged to see that the stem is gradually getting thicker.
