best method to grow autoflower
    #557634 - 05/23/11 11:29 AM (5 years, 6 months ago)

Im new to growing, this will be my first grow. I am using an autoflower stain. Should I guerilla grow, hydro, or just regular indoor? Any tips or setup advice for this newbie?

I prefer outdoor growing. Where are you in general?

Heh, that's where I'm from...No va area, loudoun co. Anyways I would soak ur seeds for a day, then plant them in good soil, in the pot they're gonna stay in. Find a good patch of weeds to stash em in, and let em grow. As long as they get plenty of sun and water, they'll be fine. Don't worry about feeding for a month, then go 1/2 strength if any.
Just got a half dozen of my own going. Do it soon tho, the peak light will be mid july- right when these babys are in full flower.

afghan kush ryder, i am worried about them being outside because we have alot of damn deer around. Also how strong is the smell if i grew them in the woods behind me house. They are deep so i could always go further into them if needed.

The deeper the better.  As far from human traffic as possible, and in an area with some good sun penetration.  You will have to protect your plants from the deer.  There's chicken wire, fish string I've read about working, predator urine, and many other techniques you can read up on.

How many plants?

I got an AKR goin right now. Most important thing is light. Find somewhere with lots of sun. Genetics aside, light will determine how much weight you get. These plants will only get to be a couple feet tall, and blend very easily. I keep mine among the plants in the flower bed, and if anyone asks I tell them it's a cleome or spider flower..

I have 7 feminzed seeds, afghan kush ryder, i want to grow them all so i can get a good amount and not have to grow for a while. But even if i do go deep in the forest, would the wire raised the suspension level dramatically if someone did see it? I want to grow them, have them not be seen and keep deer away :crazy2:

Obviously the more secluded the better. However you can't sacrifice light for security(like deep in forest in mostly shade). I can't stress enough how important it is to have full sunlight for as many hours as possible. Otherwise, you will have smaller plants, looser less potent buds, and you will be sorely disappointed.. Do yourself a favor and find a spot that meets both security and light needs, and thank me later.

Chicken wire is a risk, but I would thank someone would smell your grow before they saw the wire.  My opinion of course.

QFT. If they've found your grow, you're boned, either way. If there's chicken wire, they just know that it definitely IS a prepared garden, not just some seeds dumped and sprouted in the middle of nowhere.

"The best place to hide something is in plain sight"- Edgar Allen Poe
Seriously, isn't there a patch of weeds or over growth around your house anywhere? AFs are great blenders, and they'll finish a full 2 months before harvest season. Or get some cleome, and plant it as a concealer. IME the closer to your house, the more control you have over security(who sees them)...which brings me to my next point, if we're talking about security. Your worst enemies are gonna be your friends. DON'T TELL OR SHOW ANYONE!!! Even if your friends wouldn't steal from you,...loose lips sink ships.

there are tons of places. My neighborhood is pretty much a forest and my backyard is one of the biggest area. But seriously there are alot of deer around, i know i could find a good spot to disguise them, having them blend in and have sunlight available.

Okay then, don't plant them all in one place. Space them out and use deterrents like urine, or you can get animal deterrent granules from walmart for $8. I used it last year in my backyard and had no problems... Using coyote urine this year cuz I planted farther away from my house. $40 online, but it'll give me piece of mind...
