AK-47 x Diesel AutoFlower FINAL HARVEST PICS (COMPLETE 1-23-10)
    #316727 - 11/16/09 07:19 PM (7 years, 25 days ago)







Thanks to a kind donation I'm finally able to grow an auto-flower strain.  Ak-47 x Diesel, the plants in the first two pics are about 4 days old, the plant on the right in the third pic is about two days old, and the one on the left just popped through the surface last night.  The smallest one is pretty vigorous, when I checked this morning a tap root was already poking through its side.

I was hoping to have more, but poor germination rates plagued me.  Out of 15 beans those were the only survivors.  I'm just hoping the luck will swing my way and I'll end up with all girls :wink:.

The medium is 1.5 cups of perlite mixed in with .5 cups of verm in 18 oz solo cups (Hempy grow).  Once sexed the plan is to move to 1 gallon containers for flowering.  This is also my first time growing hempy, these plants are a test run for when I grow my other strains sitting in my veg cab.  It'll also give me a little bit of supply to hold me over while the other plants finish.

So, we'll see how things go.  I'll get to fine tune my flowering cab and get it tweaked out and practice growing hempy style.  Can't wait to see what the buzz is like from the auto-flowers :smile:

Sorry man, no seed trading allowed on the boards since it is illegal in the states.  Our seedbank forum is a good place to learn about places to buy, and find good deals on seeds.

And yes, I'm a fellow shroom grower.  I help mod the cult forums over there too :wink:

Sad, but true.  Don't have the space for breeding either.  If it was summer I would take one male and a female or two and hide them outside.

Thats not a good germination rate.

Hope you get girls for the most part.


What kind of lights are you germinating under?

i don't think germinating under any light at all is recommended.  :shrug:

OK, after germination, what kind of light are you using.

I've always germ'd under a flo. light.  It shouldn't make a difference either way, but in nature the seeds germ under the biggest lamp of them all :wink:

They're looking poor, but this is due to my own hand then anything else.  I'm really broke right now, so much so in fact that I can't afford to spend the money on litmus strips or drops to PH test my water.  So right now they're suffering from a PH imbalance due to the water being too alkaline (runs 7-8 PH out of the tap).  I was hoping i'd be able to get them through this phase without fucking them up, and it looks like they made it without too much stress.  Next watering is going to include food so the PH will be much lower then it has been.  My friend is coming back into town tomorrow as well and he's bringing me some extra supplies to test PH with.

However, aside from the slightly twisted leaves, growth is pretty good.  A little slower then I expected but that might be due to the PH issues. they're about 2-3 inches tall and working on their first set of 5 bladed leaves.  Cotes are dying off and some of the older leaves are yellowing so I know they're ready for a little bit of N at the very least.  We'll see how they respond when I feed them next.

I'll get some pics up by later tonight most likely.

I fed them with .5 tsp/gal of flora nova bloom yesterday.  Today almost all of the curling has gone away.  So the next watering or two is going to be at that strength and then I'll move it up a notch, then up to full strength.  Hopefully I'll be seeing some more aggressive growth now.

Pic 1: This is a sprout I like to call "Mirac", somehow a seed fell out of one the peat pellets I thought was dead.  A few days later I opened the veg cab to see the seed leaves poking out from underneath the plastic holder that contained the peat pellets.  So I hydrated a peat pellet, stuck the sprout into it, and let it sit.  Somehow it made it through so now I have one more to add to the collection.

Pic 2: All the girls in a row, two on the far left are the younger ones

Pic 3: Older plants

Pic 4: Older plant on right, other two are the younger ones.

This marks about day 20 for the older ones, day 15-16 for the younger ones, mirac is probably on day 5-6 although I'm not certain of her time line.  So, I'm not sure if the problems I was having before came from underwatering, a PH imbalance, or both.  I've started watering them every day now pretty much (skipped last night because they looked fine).  They also get food with every watering, still sticking with .5 tsp per gal.  One more week and I'll bump it up to a full tsp and see how they handle it.  Once I started feeding/watering every day growth has picked up, the leaf curl has been pretty much eliminated, and some green has come back to the lower leaves which had started to yellow (although some of the single blade leaves are beyond repair).

I'm hoping to see sex within two weeks, and I'm pretty sure soon after the flowering process begins.  Just will have to wait and see I suppose.

Two confirmed females this morning, came home and found one more girl and one possible male.  I'm sure the other older ones will show sex in a day or two and the younger ones a few days after that.

So 20 days from sprout to the beginnings of buds (well, for three plants at least).

Thats great, they'll really start to take off now.  Once they get the surface area necessary to really kick into photosynthesis they never look back.  Don't get discouraged by the growth so far, I know they'll make it up to you :wink:

This can be partially blamed on the hempy style as before the roots hit the rez the plants grow pretty slowly.  Still, I think it was lack of water/nutes that held em back.

I can now also increase my female count to 4.  So that's 4/6 so far with the two young ones still trying to catch up.  I'm gonna have to bust my ass this weekend and get the HPS set up for them.
