Getting things started with some Dinafem Cheese XXL Auto! I'll be using an identical setup to my scrog grow, but without the scrog. I've inoculated the seed in URB Organic for 25 min and dropped into a jiffy pellet in my humidity/clone dome. Using URB is supposed to help produce a taproot in 24 hours. We shall see what happens. Looking forward to this grow. The strain has great reviews and will be my first attempt at growing an autoflower. Wish me luck!
Day 1: we have liftoff! Took less than 3 days to sprout! Fastest I've seen yet. I'm about to make my soil/coco/perlite mix in preparation for planting.
Day 2: up up and away! She will be planted tomorrow as soon as my new led arrives. I'm looking forward to this healthy looking sprout!
Day 3: Root was coming out of the jiffy pellet and the LED arrived, so I put her in a 7 gallon fabric pot with 1/3 happy frog soil, 1/3 coco and 1/3 perlite. I inoculated the soil with 30ml URB when I mixed the soil last night. I did not water when planting since the soil was very moist. LED is hanging at 38" above the plants with VEG mode only.
Day 4: Getting used to the new soil and LED and I expect a little slower growth for the next few days. I've never grown with coco in the soil, so while the surface is drying, I believe the soil beneath is moist enough for now. I overwatered my first photos and don't want to make the same mistake with the autos. I'll keep an eye on things.
Day 5: Sprayed twice today with cal-mag foliar spray to wet the soil near the plant. She appears to be liking the LED light. I'll kick on the boost light in about a week and then the bloom light after 3-4 weeks of growth.
Day 6: Sprayed with URB foliar in the morning and Cal-mag in the evening. Not wuite ready for a nute feeding. Maybe later in the week I will give a dose of water. I'm contemplating MammothP for the entire grow on this auto. Still on the fence on the nute regimen yet.

Looking like you are off to a mighty fine start. Never heard of that URB. What is it and how is it used? Were you able to clone an autoflower? Best wishes on the rest of the grow. - Zannabis7

@gdogfunk, The other product that I just ordered that I hear growers rant and rave about is RECHARGE. It is something to feed between nutrient feeds and does wonders creating microbes in your soil - essentially making your soil a living soil. Helps keep the salts from building up in the soil as well. Check it out when u find the time - Zannabis7

@gdogfunk, Glad to hear you are going to give NFTG a try. Scott (the owner) is a cool dude and knows his stuff about soil science. Keep me posted on how you like the nutes once you start using them. Grow on! - Zannabis7

@Zannabis7, I had never heard of the Nectar of the Gods line before I saw your grow. I have a sample kit on it's way! After watching several videos about their products, I am amazed at the science behind what they do, as well as the lack of waste in their manufacturing. I may have to pick up the rest of the line at the local shop!

@Bertaz31, Thank you! I got my LED today, so both autos are planted in soil and soaking up some great light!
