The clones rooted, So I picked the 4 best ones and put them on 12/12 under 165watts of cfl for now. I want to use my hps for flowering, but I still have the autos under it. How would a 12/12 schedule effect autoflowers? Would potentcy be reduced?

I don't think a 12/12 will fuck with the autos. The potency will be the same. :growingweed:

O.O woow
I had the whole concept of autoflowers wrong. I thought the extra light all season long enables them to fully mature in 2 months or so. Time to explore the magical world of google:nyan:

So I guess i'll put my cfl fixture back togeather and use that closet for moms. Ill move the 400watter to a different area once my cooltube finally gets here.

So I read up on lighting schedules for autos and most people say the only downside of 12/12 is longer flowering time, which is fine w/ me. I bought a Vornado high velocity fan that I want to put in a diy door, and use a few computer fans to cool the reflector directly.



The clones looked so hungry, I had to give them something lol...mixed about 2 pinches of general hydroponics veg nutes and fed 2. They had pretty good roots when I planted them so i think they'll be fine.

    #588507 - 09/24/11 07:29 PM (9 years, 3 months ago)

Just got the cooltube :laugh: planning to start moving plants tommorow. The bagseed moms are going under 168watts of cfl, giving me room for 13 clones in 6" pots (im probably going to use growbags though, cant find square pots anywhere).
Im going to start a new journal for the 4 ak48's (which just started flowering) and the clones.

Anyways, im planning to harvest in about a week...too early? I can get some night pics tommorow if it'll help.

74g wet:bow2:
Is it realistic to expect 14g dry? (didnt water for a week before harvest)
Also is it ok to dry my buds that way? They are on a ovenrack w/ cheesecloth over it. The bucket is full of desicant

Yoooooooooou got jumpy and harvested early. Those buds aren't ready. I'd get rid of the desiccant and hang them up and let em natural dry.

Shit:eek:
the leafs were starting to turn yellow so I thought theyre done. You think it would be at least ok potency if I cure for a while?
And the stems snap already (72 hours later :/) so I put the buds in paper bags. Is it possible they are dry already? Weight in at 19g

Drying your buds too quickly with a desiccant or heat will make your buds brittle and crumbly. The way to do it is to let them dry slowly and evenly. If your house is too humid a desiccant won't have negative effect unless of course you're making the area the bud is drying too dry.

The way you should do it is hang the buds up on a clothes line or hangers on the stems until the stems will snap when bent. Then they go into paper bags for a couple days. Then they go into jars with you giving them some air for two weeks by opening the jars and rolling the buds around gently so that they get a chance to dry out evenly. After the two week period they're good to stay in the jars until smoked.

Wow I totally forgot to mention that I have clones in a closet right next to it, without a vent. system, so I keep the door open. I lift my humidity dome and mist like 10 a day minimum (lost my job recently, doing nothing most of the time), so the rh of the little halway is 60-70%. Plus outside has been about the same for the past few days.
Heres how it looks like.. I have no idea why 2 walk in closets are right next to each other, by the entrance to the house either.

Don't question connivance...

So 74 wet went to 19 dry?


--------------------
In order to grow good weed you need to be part carpenter, electrician, plumber, biologist, geneticist, chemist, and very willing to get dirty.

I've been working with power tools since I was 8, my dad is an electrical engineer who owned a 280 gal fish tank, and I studied biology with a specialty in genetics. Getting dirty comes naturally. I think my parents inadvertently trained me to be a weed grower.

See what you think on my first try.

The rh of the drying closet stys at 40 or below after having the door closed for a while. At first it was 60ish (without the dessicant); I dried shrooms the same way...failed at that too lol (16 cakes 2 syringes and 5g dry over 6weeks:nyan:)
Also I kept the buds in paper bags for a day, they lost 2g and the rest of their smell..So 17g dry, premature weed, that smells like dry grass:glittershitz:
