    Stable Auto strains, that don't hermie please?

    My last grow was smoothie by FastBuds. Great strain, but it hermie. I'm doing something wrong. I've done everything I can think of.

    Stable Auto strains, that don't hermie please?

    Hi guys, Can anyone recommend any stable Auto strains, that don't hermie please? I'm used to photoperiods, and I have never had a problem. I only lst, and my ph, lights, and temps are spot on. RH around 40%. It's heartbreaking, harvesting Seeds. Any thoughts, much appreciated! Happy growing.

    Anyone had good results from Living Soil?

    I'm having great results with [livingsoilsfertiliser.com]. It took a few grows to get used to it, but these are my Smoothies by FastBuds.

    Organic soil mix for Auto's

    Thought I'd share a mix that I've found works well with auto's. It's free draining and lower in worm castings, but fully organic and will feed the plants for the first crucial 2-3 weeks. I then top dress with a bloom mix and worm castings, followed two weeks later with bloom 2...

    Autos or photoperiods - What do you prefer?

    My aim is for completely organic buds, and I try to keep the stink down, since the Mrs hates it (easier in smaller batches). Apart from that, you can really work through seedsman, or whatever, and if you find strains you really like, you can make breed your own fem autos from it with Colloidal...

    Autos or photoperiods - What do you prefer?

    Yes, it'd be a sad world if everyone loved the exact same thing! I just don't like waiting 4 months for my flowers. With autos I harvest little amounts, but every two to three weeks. Its mainly a liability issue. I'm confident that 9 plants will not interest the authorities, where I live. Any...

    Autos or photoperiods - What do you prefer?

    Well, I'd never grow a 3.5 month auto. Could grow two crops in that time. My method is lst by week 3, transpant and bloom dress at week 4, bloom 2 and malt powder dress week 6 then flush. Watch the calmag. Ready to harvest from two months with at least 1 oz per plant, times three plants per...

    Autos or photoperiods - What do you prefer?

    The purists may disagree, but after growing a 28% Thc photo, I found the autos easily packed the same punch. The yield is lower, because they run out of time. The flip side is you can grow more crops.

    Autos or photoperiods - What do you prefer?

    Auto's are more fussy, but generally lst fine, which makes them far more productive. Less time in pots means less things to go wrong, but you're running to a tight time frame, so mistakes are hard learned.

    Autos or photoperiods - What do you prefer?

    Modern auto strains are far removed from the earlier ones, and I'd recommend you at least try them. My last grow was Green Gelato, from Royal Queen Seeds, and with a thc of 24% it lacks absolutely nothing! I used to scrog with photoperiods, but my last grow ran from July to November. Too long...

    Post your Organic Soil Mix

    It's available in the States and similar, and the full list of ingredients are clearly listed in the UK. It's also cheaper than bottle nuts, since you don't have to buy more amendments than required. You also don't meed a cement mixer. However, every grower must find their preference. This just...

    Post your Organic Soil Mix

    I run a perpetual 9 plant Grow, and I'm done with messing on with complicated mixes that the plants may only be in for 2 months. So I'd recommend a good organic seed compost with an additional 20-30% perlite. Use a living soil granular fertiliser/nutrient mix like GAIA Green, or living soils...

    Spider Farmer Upgrade for my 4 x Samsung LED MOD FSERIES GEN3 3500K Strips?

    Think I was being greedy guys. I'm happy with my temps atm, so I'll stick with slightly smaller Nugs. These lights have been sweet as a nut, since day 1. I'd recommend strip lights! Nice spread. https://www.thcfarmer.com/threads/samsung-led-double-striplight-diy-build.100987/

    Should I upgrade my current 4 x Samsung LED MOD F-SERIES GEN3 3500K Strips?

    Dudes, if you guys also think my current lights are up to the job, why change things? Kind My room is currently zeroed, so no need to reinvent the wheel. Better lights will increase temps.... Etc... So, slightly larger buds can be the only benefit, I guess! Peace out, and happy growing.
