Ok, this is my equipment and setup. (My Support Ticket is listed below.)




I’m using super soil method. My light is a sonlipo spe2000. with veg/ bloom & dim/ timer. 4x3x6 tent with 4" ac infinity exhaust fan with temp & humidity controller. A small humidifier and a couple of fans. I just put an air conditioner in my room so the hot summer won’t be a problem. I still need to purchase a dehumidifier. I’m using natural spring water from a spring nearby. It has about 55ppm. & 6.5 ph. I plan on making tea with the leftover living soil I used. My seeds are Moby Dick auto. from Mendocino Farms. Order from Pacific seeds. Using 3gal. pots as they flower in about 10 weeks. I plan on soaking seeds for 24hrs. and plant directly into pot. If anyone has any suggestions or thoughts please feel free to comment, criticize & critique. To be honest, I’m a little scared I’m going to muck this up.

Here are some pics of my " test" plants a couple of weeks ago.
They are Cherry Diesel & Full Moon Fever bag seeds from dispensary.
Believe it or not, they were7 weeks old at the time! I stunted them early on.:disappointed_relieved:. But they are much better now.
I’ll post pics of them tomorrow. They are outside now. I topped & did some lst. I did it too late and stunted them. That’s why I think they r so small for 7 weeks at the time.

These are the same “test” plants now at 10 weeks. Cherry diesel and full moon fever bag seeds. To my surprise, they all are female.

My Moby Dick auto came today. 7/2. Going to start 24 HR. soak

Help! Problems already. I spotted mold in 1 pot. Must of gotten contaminated. Is there any way I can save the seed, since I just planted and caught it right away?

If it’s just on top scoop it out and scoop out the surrounding soil. Sounds like your media is a little too wet.

Thank you. Just a little white fuzzy stuff on top. I removed it and left the seed. Letting it dry out some outside. At least I know it’s not a gonner yet. I’ll keep posted with pics once they pop up, hopefully any day. Thanks again & lots of love.

I have a Sonlipo spe2000 w/ Veg/Bloom switch or I can keep it on veg & bloom together. I’m not sure when to set it to veg & bloom with autoflowers. I assume early on, maybe 3 weeks? I’m guessing. Any suggestions?
