OB's First Autos

As it says, I have never tried autos. The two I have chosen for this run are:

I was going to run Dark Devil, but that bean went flying on me. New bag opening protocols have been put in place :expressionless:

I have some of the pollen from my Tropicanna Poison run, so assuming it stays good long enough, I will brush it on to 1 bud on each plant. Haven’t messed with controlled pollination either, yet. So we shall see how it goes. Feel free to discuss whatever :smiley:

Totally forgot the deets:

Have you ever tried it before? I looked it up on seedfinder and it sounds pretty good :slight_smile:

Best of luck on the grow @other_barry
I’ll be curiously watching. I grew some Dinafem photos back a handful of years ago and thought they were pretty dang decent. Hope yours turns out dynomite!:boom:

“OB”, before it gets too crowded, kindly move that table there, I’m gonna put my old Bean Bag in that corner. Since Autos tend to be “short runners”, I don’t wanna take the chance on missing anything. I envision complete success, Bro, SS/BW…mister :honeybee: :100: :pray: :heart_eyes: NOTE: Got a Bag of Ruffles Tater Chips, if interested.

I wish you the best on your first go with autos and the breeding project. Just an FYI, your seeds created will have about 25% chance of showing autoflower traits, it’s a possibility but a recessive trait​:v::seedling::green_heart:

I’ve eyeballed that mobydick XXL before, very curious to see how it turns out for you

I’ll pop a squat right next to @misterbee and I’ll take you up on the ruffles. I promise I chew with my mouth closed! I’m sure this plants will turn out aokay and are in good hands from what I’ve seen!

I appreciate all you pros keeping an eye on me. I’m terrified of messing these up. I don’t want to stress eat all your chips @misterbee

I don’t know why I didn’t take notice of the dried up nutes before I put the tub back together, but here’s hoping I can clean it up with water and elbow grease, so I don’t have to risk their safety

One of my all time favorites, Indiana bubblegum-

Good luck @other_barry

We have some real leaves starting to show up to the party. I will probably post a picture when I feed them tomorrow. Speaking of which, I have no idea how to know when to start on the flower nutes with autos. lol. guess I should figure that out before we get there.

@vaportrail I am excited. I have never tried bubblegum before. Moby Dick, either, for that matter.

Good luck on your first auto run! What’s your setup? I’m planning on running autos for the inaugural run of my cab… just need to get it built lol. Already have most of the parts I need.

I’m only on my 7th and 8th auto but I feel like it’s pretty easy to tell when to start your flowering nutes. I’d love to know if there is a science to it thou!

You making a stealth cabinet grow? I think those always look so cool. I hope you do a grow log for it.

I’ve been talking about growing for years. One day jokingly told wife that I’m going turn her hutch into a stealth cab. To my surprise she said yes! Have a really cool neighbor that turned me onto this site and help screw couple bulbs in and put it together, soil and starter seeds and all. Figured be a good stepping stone for learning about the plant more and how it’s life cycle is. All crammed into 70 days and less room for error. Just got my tent and inline fan delivered. buying some strips to build a light then will play with some photos in it but I have a feeling I’ll always have a sweet spot for them. Espically since the neighborly sensei prefers landraces and photos to give a little bit of diversity to the neighbor Hood! I have a grow log for the first set of plants I started… That I desperately need to update today. Lol once I get the new tent all together and filled up I’m going start a new one to keep running for the whole year between the two spaces!
