  5. Should be fun for sure. We've been doing road trips so I've plugged my plants in the ground and hung lights over them to keep them in veg. Something new trying to veg off season outside so it will be a learning run.

  6. That's a great idea. Gives me a idea in my basement as I have a dirt floor I wonder if I dug out a spot and replaced the sand with soil if it would be take up the water from the water table. The basement seems to stay damp year round and the sandy floor does as well. Very interesting to see what would happen. thanks for the idea, Cheers

    We don't get very cold and even a frosty roof is a rare event. We could still get some hot days or weeks before the new year.

  8. Not sure what things are like in your state, but around here the super low prices have everyone selling their gear super cheap on craigslist and fb marketplace. Someone here is still trying to sell 2 brand new fc6500s for $250 each, might be similar deals in your area.

    Also, if it stays super damp in your basement, you might want to buy a dehumidifier. Plants will act as humidifiers, especially when you have them under a powerful light.

    Going to be a autoflower tent or breeding purposes. First run I plan on popping autos in it while I run photos in my bigger tent. Never tried mars lights before figured why not. The cost of electricity almost doubled this year so it should provide something and to me something beats nothing 10 to 1. Should have it set up by the weekend hopefully. Currently have covid again so I'm in bed resting.

  13. Sorry to hear about the covid Jay. That sucks. I'll bet covid or not you have that set up as soon as you have it. I know your over on Os's journal. I'd suggest a larger starter slug of seedling mix it really helps autos get established. 1/2 gallon minimum seems to work best.

  14. I think I should be able to fit four 7g pots comfortably in a 4x4. I wanted to go with 14g pots but that might be too big.

  15. Oh yeah for starting them in definitely want bigger pots than solo cups like I normally do.

  16. The last autos I grew were the Brooklyn sunrise and bluedreamatic for the comparison grow back in 2018 or so. Before that was the 3 bears og and sour livers. I wish the vault continued the comparison auto grows

  18. I might have a couple 10g pots somewhere. I have 30g 14g and 7g majority. Honestly some.of the best grows were in those family dollar reusable shopping bags lol they only last like 1 grow tho but for 1$ if you are on a budget you can't go wrong

  19. I'd suggest starting in the pot you intend to finish in. I find even if I'm very careful. Autos are really fussy with transplanting and the smallest root disturbance will set them back and affect overall yield. Read the first few pages of Os's journal, it really helped me with my auto flower grows.

  20. I grew 4 Brooklyn sunrise in 3 gallon pots in my 3x3 back in 2016-17. That's when I was on my last coco DTW run. Good weed for sure.
