plants stil lshowing signs of recovery after transplanting at end of week 3. the question is now whether they will continue to develop normally from here or go straight into midget flowering mode.

watering 40ml per plant per day. added first nutrients with biobizz grow.

bought adding some lighting indoors to allow these to go onto a 20hour light cycle

Grow Questions
smurgrow week 4 started grow question 4 years ago
If auto flowering plants suffer a period of stunted growth (eg due to overwatering), does that extend the veg phase or do they still flower at the normal time based on growth of the plant. i think i lost 10-14days - is this hopeless?

Hi greetings to Capetown, and congrats to legalization. Ok back to your plants. i think your growing medium is the problem of your grow, i looked through your diary and your girls looking from beginning very limy. There are two Possible reasons. Your medium got the wron g ph so your plant cant get the nutrients in the soil. Second: the medium is " to hot" that means is to rich in everything. so my recommondation is.... get an ph and Ec meter an measure the runoff of your soil.I think you plant wil stay small. But check ph and ec of you growingmedium to have a result for the coming grows. The choice of the soil and the genetics is very important in growing automatics. You have only a small time to grow and evrything got to be perfect. feel free to look into my diary " cookies for me" there you sfind a lot of nice reciepes , especially for automatics. Happy growing

You did a lot of thing s right in your grow, choosing smartpots and reduce the watering regime. Its good too, that you put them direct after germination in big pots
So you just have to get a proper growmedium

Ah! Thank you this is good feedback. I will not transplant autos again (hopefully wont need to now that i found decent medium). The original soil in the last batch was a disaster. I planted the seeds in peat pots with garden variety potting soil, the planted those in a very amateurish mix of coco, perlite, compost and that same soil. When I transplanted the roots got very limited exposure (took the whole peat pots across). The plastic pots were not draining properly and whole pot was filled with thick mud (that has still not dried 10days later). I'll keep them going as long as possible and post the result here so that hopefully others can learn from my mistakes.Thanks again!

@smurgrow, Personally I think this was an error mate. Autoflowering strains in general do not like bring potted up. Due to the short life cycle they are better suited to be left in one pot (the pot you intend your plant on living it's life cycle out in) Every time those roots get exposed the plant then needs to divert energy to new root growth. When that energy would be better suited going into the young plants growth :sunglasses:

Worth keeping in mind for next time mate :+1:

Let's see what happens now you have portend up. I still have high hopes :ok_hand:

Thank you for the diary update mate. Keep them coming :facepunch:

All the best :v:

Thank you so much for the feedback and advice. I did transplant into a better growmedium that is provided by local hydroponics shop in week 3 (uploaded a pic with the composition). The original mix was bad, and the original pots as well. when i transplanted it was thick mud to bottom if pots. The new diary (Second Batch) was started from scratch with the good medium.I also decided to move some of my plants under a grow light for during the veg stage today. the light is a 85W, 4750 lumen daylight cfl on a 20hour timer.Will review your Cookies diary and others for more lessons. I'm sorry to hear these plants will stay small - fortunately saved some of the seeds so we can try those again to sample the strain.
