This is my first diary. I have been growing auto flowers for a couple of years.I will try to share with those here interested the way that I approach the process. I will try to get across how easy it should be to get good results without a lot of fuss. I use Fox Farms Ocean Forest soil. It is a little "hot", so there will be no nutrients(other than a little ca/mg until after four full weeks, Then I will be using Nectar For The Gods "simple" feeding schedule at about 1/2 of the numbers you see there. This soil has gone as far as 8 weeks without needing to add nutrients, but that was in 10 gallon pots. After week 2 I will be going to 18/6 light schedule. My plan is to update every Wednesday for those who wish to follow. Although the strain breeder states 8-10 weeks to harvest, I have found that it usually takes longer for best results, so the plan is to harvest at week 12 unless it is obvious they can come down earlier. I grow for my own personal use in my own personal home, so my process would probably not be for those who are trying to max yield or grow for profit, but I hope you find that the process is really not difficult and you can get some high quality smoke without a lot of effort.

All of these plants are FastBuds Gorilla Glue. They were soaked overnight in tap water and placed directly into the soil. All 5 sprouted. This is my usual result with this soil. I have read some think it is too hot for seedlings, but that is not my experience. The pots are 2 gallon fabric pots with a layer of perlite on the bottom. They have only received water at this point.

Thanks for following. If I can answer any questions just fire away.

Going to be following, haven't been growing too long myself. I use the same soil, looking forward to learning some tips and seeing how you do it. I have very limited experience with auto's may pop in with questions from time to time. Good luck :sunglasses:

@phistowarrior024,
I agree with you that I don't think it would be a problem. Since i mostly grow auto flowers, I have had some bad experiences with doing nutrients too early. Some of that could have been the learning curve, but I have been trying to make the process easier and easier. By using a "hotter" soil, delaying the nutrients a little and reducing the light schedule to 18/6(and this is just my belief here), I am putting the plants in a less stressful situation. There is a lot of great work out there(and on this site) by guys with great experience really pushing the plants to get great yields and super dense nuggets. With that though comes more possible problems and the need to really recognize what is going on with the plants so that they don't stress out. I am coming from the angle that a lot of folks don't have that experience yet or maybe don't want to get that deep into the whole process. I am trying to present a process that works for me that is simpler and easier to replicate. If you grow for yourself then you want good quality not necessarily great quantity. Hope that helps. BTW, there are great diaries here with some of those guys sharing exactly how much and when, so for those who want to go there just find your favorite grower. follow along, and copy his/her techniques. That is what I am going to do on my next one....if I get to that is. :)
