UPDATE: Gnat free is the way to be. After about 10 days of letting the top 2 in of soil dry out and treating with 1:4 hydrogen peroxide spray. I also incorporated a pinch of cinnamon to the top layer to discourage adults from laying eggs. I think if I didn't have the option to go outside , it would have been much more difficult. Although adults tend to stay around their prized fungus and babies, the moderate breeze/warm temps the past weeks has made it inhospitable :) Which means my photoperiod girls can rest in peace during their dark period the first half of the day.

Space has become an issue... ;) In the future, I will set myself strict schedules so I don't just go popping all the beans at once. #triggerhappy.
I think as you progress through these experiences, it is best to stay open and creative. For example, Did I need to veg my photos for nearly 51 days??? Short answer NO but this allowed me the time to play with different training techniques and see how the CookiesxWhite Widow responded. Stellar. I now have my little bushes ready to be cloned or thrown outside...i'm still debating whether to commit to doing some Light Dep. I've been hauling these things around for months and really don't mind, but I can't imagine I'll have this much time to commit consistantly to shuffling the girls around.

In general the Autos are being Autos and doing their thing. I am a bit surprised to see which strains/phenos flowered quicker. I still feel like I am a week or two behind but I will just have to wait and see. I'll post more photos later. Here are some of the Sweet Seed Autos enjoying their morning sunbath. As of right now my #2 Sweet Seeds Auto mix is the fastest/most pungent/defined plant. The others seem to be going a bit slower or just had the unfortunate issue of recieving a 7L pot instead of 19L.

The Blue Cheese Auto by Dinafem is almost 3 feet tall,xmas tree style and stacking slowly but surely into her wonderful form I'm so familiar with. I'm hoping to be able to chop in 2 weeks but the girls will tell me when it's time...

After reading about autos taking longer. Im going to delay chop as lomg as possible. Im expecting a vary wide diverse harvest window with all the different and unknown varities.

Updated photo sorry for cellphone crappy ones :p

Hi @starphish! Don't move these out yet, it's too cold, this will lead to slow growth and stunted plants for the whole run. Autos are very sensitive to EVERYTHING. Plus, they're too young for transplantation, you will probably kill them. Keep them inside for a few weeks, within good containers such as AirPots/SmartPots (11L/3gal). They will appreciate the comfort of your tent for a good vegetative stage, before having to live into the outdoor wildness :laughing: Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

Any pro tips on hydrogen peroxide for fungus gnats? (googled plenty) Currently doing 3% hp at 1:3 ratio twice a week
Also, while you are here, if i don't care about smell at all, what is the cheapest ventilation setup I could rig for 4x4x6.5 tent?
Much Love and Light Thanks ALL

Hey there fungus gnats are such a pain...even though the adults don't actually do any damage, they still spawn the larvae that reek havoc. If you hung some sticky traps above the plants that'll catch the adults and some at soil level may catch those starting to fly. Neem oil kicks butt at the soil level especially if you spray a couple times about 3 days apart. A light top dressing of diatomaceous earth will get them and add silica to your plants. Those are the organic ones i know.
The hydrogen peroxide spray is good too especially because it's usually already in the cupboard. Do equal parts of Distilled water(not tap or rain water) and peroxide and spray it similarly to the neem, soak the top soil, base of the plant and bottom leaves and repeat several days later. I think it's best to spray it close to lights out, I believe sometimes the light and the spray can cause leaf bleaching. Good luck with the battle. :v:

In preperation for a long warm med summer, I'd like to finally grow a BIG tree oustide where she belongs :) what strains would you recommend for as discreet smell as possible? Big trees smell but I've heard rumors of unique scents that aren't as easily recognizable.

I would go with the Durban POison from Dutch passion, she is such a nice and heavy growing Girl. Growtrees and the Foxfarmer(or was it farmerbrett=?) grown her outdoor too. be aware to built her a good corsage, because shes a beast. I would love it to grow her by my own outdoors , but northrn europe is nothing for her. But you got the best Conditions for her. she smells spicy foggy, a little like pastis......

@Mikey1979,

I'll stop learning when I die ;) It's my 7th grow but the first time I'm actually paying attention every step of the way and learning LOADS of stuff I had never thought about or taken for granted. We all start somewhere. Hopefully we all end up in a bathtub full of herbs.

@DinafemSeeds,

Thanks Mark,

I'll post an update today, The Auto Blue Cheese is fattening up and I'm learning from my past experience with her to be patient and let her go as long as she needs :) I think I probably harvested a week or two earlier last time around with her which still produced phenomenal smoke and a good yield. However, this pheno is a monster of a plant and since week 1 she has shown the most vigor of the current group :)
