Auto Wall of Shame (meph crosses)

I decided to open one grow journal here..I had shitload of problems last few grows.. But I think I figured it out why.. PH.

My ph was waay too low..
I was driven by values of my tap water from years ago,but It seems that things changed .

So I'm starting new journey in here with some Mephisto crosses fron one IG guy..
I'm still using tap water (but I think of mixing it with my AC water for lowering EC and PH) and bio bizz nutes..


My start wasnt great, germination surprised me because in 36h they germinated fully so I haven't got time to buy proper soil. Girls are somewhere about 10 days old,were transplanted two day ago..

Setup is 1m2 tent. for veg sanlight led, pk 125 vent, 15l air pots , supravit soil..

Light schedule is 19/5 (I keept them first few days at my window,later in tent on 24/0, and after transplanting I set timer on 19/5)

Here are few pics..

Hey man, nice setup! A few suggestions for you that might help with speed and all.

1) I had the SAME problem with ph. I test every gallon of everything that is mixed. Baking soda brings it up. Lemon juice brings it down. I'm talking 1/4 of an 1/8 of a tsp lol for the baking soda. Or you can get all fancy and buy some ph up/down. Then there's your soil's ability to buffer... a whole different story...

2) When you transplant, dont fill your pot all the way to the top at first. Leave 2 to 3 inches so that as the seedling does its stretchy thing, you can mound up dirt behind it. This will cause more roots to shoot out to the sides. More stability. Keep following the plants growth with more dirt until you fill it to the top. You've got a plant with exposed roots in your pic. They are green so it's been like that for a minute. I suggest you cover them or you are going to get "sucker" growth.

3) Water your pots completely until you have run off. Catch the run off and ph test it.

Hope this helps :) I'm a dirt guy too lol.

Thank you.. I left key for my buddy to take care of them.. I have two Chinese ph pens,and they allready started to show different readings..
So It seems to me , that I will need to calibrate them often.. I don't know about measuring run off,coz doesnt matter how much i care and try , when I water air pots some water just spill out thru that upper holes.. That's the reason I tried to duck tape upper holes..

Not a bad idea :) I just use normal plastic or 1 gal grow bags for veg and 5 gal fabric bags for flower. Keeps it simple. If you invest in a higher quality ph pen then you wont have to calibrate so often or you can use strips but they arent as precise. I think my wife spent 15 bucks on the usual yellow ph pen for me. I cant stress enough the difference balanced ph will bring to your grow. Keep your head up. You've got first rate equipment. Me? I'm on flouros and the sun. Bonsai and fabric pots :) Completely different grow style.

Come home from vaccation with some inflammation of my love parts, and hopefully flu.. My growing carrier can end anytime coz my grow spot isnt safe,and I share that place with family who lives abroad (I 'm guarding that place) and they have habit to come without notice..

I expect bigger girls,but hell it is what it is..

I gave them water and biotabs bacteria.
But on some pots water just run thru...

I sneak out yesterday morning to water my girls snd check them out.. I didnt bring my phone coz they have my number And They can track my movements. So there isnt picture of them..They are still squat and in very different stages of maturity, but I think that I threw few different strains to sprout.So that doesnt surprise me. But feeding and watering will be fun now. 🤬

I really thought that It will not come to this
for at least 2 weeks..

They are already looking shitty....
I try to keep ph under 7.5 and counting it's "organic" / bio nutes plus soil i dont need to fck around too much around messing with ph and water..

Obvious not.. I visited them one more after I took the pictures, and feed them again coz they didn0t look any better but I up doses from 1/3 to 50% of nute strenght..
Maybe I should try foliar feeding?

I'm so disappointed in everything that I'm thinking to go back to AN ph perfect nutes..

And I dont know why my pistils goin orange too soon? I think its led stress so I raised them a little..

weeping in 3...2....1...

I just visited them and checkout my county line genetics seedlings.. I will pull to the end my autos, but its new autogrow fail. Buds remain AGAIN. small and I know I hadn't too low pH this time .

I'm inly growers in the word who is worst longer he grows .

I just throw germinated seeds in cups and placed them on top of pots,so 2 girls are too lanky, but I hope they will come around.

Looks like they could use more flower nutes and less nitrogen but other than that things are looking good. :lazycouchlock:
and my dumb ass is doing just opposite..Giving them full doses of grow(n) and 1/3 of strenght of everything else. way to go stoner

The thing ng that i dont understand is why my listils went all brown 3rd week of flower.. I keep leds even above manufactor reccomendation ..
If my CLG girls do fine..Me and autos are done .

Brown pistils that early in flower leads me to think pollen. Have you checked all the lowers for any balls?
