Hey! Thanks for stopping by. I’m just in the planning stages right now.
I plan on growing three different strains of autoflowers, in three separate growing situations, each grow being one month apart. I am planning on growing 1xWedding Cake (auto), 1xZkittles (auto), and 1x(TBD) (auto) in each spiral. Jacks321 nutes planned for throughout.
Spiral One (planting 04/01). Each plant grown in 3 a gal pot. Grow will start indoor, and the plants will be moved outdoors when weather permits (this was mid-May 2020). Once they are outside (upstairs), they will stay outside as much as possible. Hopefully harvested by 07/31. The upstairs area looks like the below pic.
Spiral Two (planting 05/01). Each plant gown in the ground. In addition to using Jacks321, these plants will also get pond muck. I would like to see how big my autos can get with unrestricted root growth. I’m planning on 120 day spirals (seed to harvest). Hopefully all three harvested by 08/31. I don’t want any plants in the ground in September. The weather we had here Sept & Oct 2020 was awful for my outdoor grows. Bud rot can be heartbreaking. The downstairs area looks like the below pics.
Spiral Three (planting 06/01). Each plant gown in a 5 gal pot. They’ll be grown outside from day one. They will start downstairs with spiral 2, and will be moved upstairs after spiral 1 has been harvested. These plants can be moved indoors if weather gets too crappy. They will also get pond muck as well as Jacks321.
I know that different strains have their own growing peculiarities, and plants from the same strain can differ as well. I’m hoping to see those differences within each spiral, as well as more obvious differences between each spiral.
Any suggestions or recommendations for the third strain of autos? (Preferably something that goes from seed to harvest in 120 days.)
Has anyone done a project like this before? Any advice as I start planning?
