Hope all has been good brother dont see ya around as much haha the ladies are looking thick and chunky over all looking dam good
Thanks grow bro!
Looking very good! Nice and healthy.
For my part, you are most welcome. Thanks for sharing that info freely as you do!
Its been good. Work is pretty demanding right now, this next month is gonna be full of OT too. Next week I get trained on the machine trimmers. Apparently we have like 200 lbs of weed needs trimmed and more coming every week. Its a lil crazy.
Hot dam 200lb sounds like machine trimming is a must at that point haha keep grinding brother!
We do both machine and hand. Hand trim is for top shelf only.
I am gonna follow right along with that one! I am interested to see how the ILGM nutes stack up to some of the old favorites here on the forum. Gonna walk over there right now and start watching.
My pleasure! I freakin love this community and everyone in it! Big happy family. All the crazy aunts and uncle to go with it. We all have that ONE. Haha
We gotta share our imperfect runs same as our perfect ones right? Found a seed in the peanut butter and carmel bud last night while grabbing some photos. Found a few more in other buds too. No nanners and no pollen sacks or seeds on the chatty cathy so Im assuming its just random seeding, still sucks.
I was gonna send the pic off to @Graysin for advertisment purposes and was getting it sized up when I noticed. The seed is huge!
Thats odd it must of threw the smallest pollen sack rite there and in return popped out 1 seed lol
I know this is a super old thread but could you tell me what you think of my plant at 9 days out of soil first time growing anything
I will quit my job and come work for you right now!
Looks good to me. Thread is a running journal so feel free to post away. Im happy to answer any questions you have.
Ok I just purchased the ilgm fertilizer the powder bags it comes with 4 bags I am growing autoflowers and I heard that less is more with nutes for them so I am wondering if you know how much of these I should give my plant yes they do have a chart on the webpage but it’s a little confusing and I think it’s based on photoperiods
And do you think this looks like it still has enough water how deep should I let my soil dry out before watering again
Yes and no. The schedule is designed to be extended or reduced based on your needs. For autos you could likely just follow it week for week. For photos you would just repeat the last week of veg or flower as needed.
1st and formost you will need a ph meter, a tds meter and ph up and/or down to feed your plants. The nutrients can only be taken up by the plant at certain ph levels.
Yes with autos less is more, in general. How much a plant can eat is on an individual plant basis. For your first run I recommend using 1/2 dose straight through, unless they demand more. Force feeding your ladies is an advanced technique so to speak.
Equally important as to how much is when to feed. That answer depends largely on the soil you are using. Some soils come pre ammended with nutrients.
As a rule, when runoff tds is below 1000ppm its time to feed.
This is a tuff question to answer for seedlings. I use a method of doubling to determine watering amounts. I start with 60ml when I plant. Then 3 days later if soil is dry I double to 120ml if not I wait till it is and do 60ml again. A plant your size would use about a cup to start. How dry is easy, fully. Cannabis likes a wet to dry cycle. If the top two inches are dry but the below that isnt, your watering too much for the size plant you have.
From bottom to top.
Cotyledryn (round tiny leaves)
1st leaf (single finger)
2nd leaf (3 fingers)
1st true leaf (5, 7 or 11 fingers depending on strain and phenotype.)
If I had to guess you are talking about the 2nd and 3rd fingers of your 2nd leaf or the first parts of your incoming 1st true leaf.
That makes sense I didn’t expect those so early on
Autos will move quickly.
@LogVitt ill tag you in my first couple journals, might have some helpful info for ya. Outside of that please feel free to ask away, happy to help.
