What do you feel you’ve done wrong that makes you think starting over will be better this time?

That is, what are you going to do differently?

. and a more basic, traditional question, can you explain your setup?

i would always recommend starting over with proper genetics to people growing autoflowers. if you want to learn how to grow top quality cannabis you should not grow autoflowers.

you use more power to create less potent buds, it just baffles me how many people choose to spend money on a seed that at most will give 2 oz of average weed. i bought a seed for 7 dollars that has given over 8lb so far, all better quality than any autoflower you could buy.

if you have nothing better to do with your time keep it growing, you will get something from it but as to whether it is worth it or not is up to you and nobody else.

I’m an Autoflower breeder and you’ve offended me.

Autoflowers can as potent, if not more potent than photo-periodic strains. Breeders will introduce Ruderralis into the genes and them remove the Ruderralis THC content and breed the photo genes they want. (THC,CBD,CBN levels they want) and anything else.

It’s nice to see you’ve had a nice yield from a photo plant. I’ve pulled 250+ grams from a Dutch Passion Mazar easily. Could probably pull close to 1kg in DWC system under ideal conditions.

Here is my autoflower. She is 2 weeks old. She is so small for 2 weeks old. Should start over since I know autos should be bigger at 2 weeks or should I…

No it should recover. Just let them dry out so the middle/ bottom doesnt remain soggy then slowly and evenly water the whole pot to make sure it saturates fully and you should get 15-20% of what you pour in as runoff. You can even let it soak a minute in case there are still dry spots.

Then wait until the pot is very light and dry and do it again. This is very important in ocean forest.

Next time it will work better with 25% added large chunky perlite mixed in for much better drainage.

I almost wonder if coco is better than perlite for soil. Just because its going to hold more air, and it tends to migrate to the surface. (perlite).

Yah its best just to soak it.

Just dont forget those first few days the plant isnt able to do much because the soil is lacking oxygen.

The longer you wait the better. When the plant starts to droop abit.

Aim to water about 2-3 days before that happens, and thats how long you should go in between watering imo.

Will be running autos in FFOF as well in a few weeks.

My outdoor plants appeared to like it. I was mixing FFOF with used coco to get more volume. When i was transplanting.

Just cant promise anything cannabis wise. Was running about 25%-30% coco. Still alive and happy after almost 8 months.

The breeder i ised said its great for drainage but hurts results more than 30% mixed in peat lite mix. He suggested to start at 15%.

I just dont want to water more often.

Interesting. Might make a good trade off for rainy late spring outdoor grows/late fall harvests.

Lower the risk of drowning roots but at a slight loss of harvest. Risk management.

stick to it, you’ll be right. you’re learning about your soil mix & its watering, depending on the growth development – make adjustments as you go, if need be. add coco or more perlite, whatever etc. get your grow medium right for your conditions/preferences.

i can see you watered just around the plants, as recommended when watering small plants in large pots. the suggestion is to start in smaller pots and gradually re-pot, as they get root-bounded, into larger pots, because it is harder to overwater in smaller pots.

when you get the conditions more suitable, the plants will reward you by their response with healthier growth. they look a bit battered presently, but they can recover quickly. also, they should get larger soon, when you’ll probably find it easy to water.

These 3 are 2 weeks old yesterday. The first two look okay but the third one kinda f’d up this is my first time growing I’m in fox farm ocean forest and I… ]]>
