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.
