Looking nice and healthy @Jason and you've got a nice selection of strains going there! I like the fact you have some strong and some less strong, it's nice to have that.
Very interested in the Critical Orange and the Blue dream-matic, I hope the Orange tastes nice and orangey 🍊 Everybody loves the citrus flavoured ones!
How do you plan on flowering out the autos and photos in the same cab?
Thanks for sharing! I'm subscribed :)

I plan to run them all in the same room at 18/6 until the autos are about ready. This should give me more than plenty of time to veg, train, and take clones from the photoperiods. I'll just play it by ear on when I do flip to 12/12. I did this on my last run and that is how I ended up with the nice variety of smoke I'm currently enjoying, See(What are you smoking right now post). Actually I went to 14/10 last time to try and get a bit more light time on the autos and the photoperiods all flipped just fine going from 18/6 to 14/10. I've read a lot of differing opinions about this method and am very much experimenting and learning as I go. It seemed to work good for me previously and I know not to expect big yields from the autos. I've seemed to be in to much of a hurry to flip to flower on previous grows so I plan to take my time on this one. I appreciate all of your feedback and opinions and I will definitely be taking it all into consideration as I move forward.

Hi Alphatoy, So nice to see your back home. Sorry to say but the Bluestink didn't pop and the one AP is barely growing. I do still have the one AP but did not include it in these grow photos yet. I'll try to get a photo of it up here. Kind of a funny looking little dude. It is most likely something I did wrong like maybe nutes in my starter soil, over compaction, or some other rookie move. Here is a early pic of the nursery area just after I put 3 blue stink and 2 AP in the soil after soaking for 24 hrs. Did you or any of your associates have good luck with these? I look forward to trying again next time.

Jason do you just soak your seeds than place into soil. I myself have not had much luck with this system. me I put seed into a glass of water after about 12 hours usually the seed will fall to bottom if not tap them to see if they sink when they sink I than place a paper towel on to a small plate I pour the seed and water onto the paper towel I than fold the towel over seed twice than after towel is soaked I pour off the extra water an place plate into a plastic baggie and place item into a dark area I put mine into a drawer wait 24 hours than check you should have a root coming out if not replace unit back and wait another 24 hours make sure paper towel stays wet the root will come when about 1/2 inch or better poke hole in soil I use a pencil about the same length as root pick up and place root into hole make sure the bean is just visible not deep in soil cover very easy I usually have a 100% success with this system only touch bean not root :)

Great advice Alphatoy, Thanks! I've tried different ways but not this method you mention precisely. I did the soak and sink thing and watched for the bean to swell, crack, and a root barely start to emerge on one bean then moved to soil. I think I may have been a bit gun shy on letting the roots develop long enough then probably to deep and or compacted.

Update time. I have some photos that I will try to upload in the order of progression. Wish me luck. I brought grow journal in along with camera so I have some info to share. First a bit more about where the seeds came from.
Auto flowers:
3-Autos
Northern Lights- Royal Queen
Bluedream-matic- Fastbuds
White widow- Seedsman

5- Fem
1 Critical Orange Punch-Dutch Passion
1 Peyote Critical- Barney's Farm
1 Power Plant-Dutch Passion.
2 Green Crack- Gifted seeds

No feeding after 8/7/19 until 8/23 See photo of product line up so far.
Autos got Dr. Earth Flower girl bud and bloom, notice the buds are coming on especially on the Bluedreamatic. The autos and the Photoperiods all got Bigfoot roots, molasses, and 1/4 tsp. superthrive. The Photos each got 1 TBSP gal. Fox Farm Grow Big.
Tonight I took 8 cuttings 4 each of P.C and C.O.P, two lower limbs and two tops from each. Put them in clone bucket after root tone. Have not got photos of pruning yet, more to come...

Thanks Sunshine. I did some light pruning and training on the girls today. The Autoflowers are all coming on nicely too, with all 3 budding now. The cuttings seem happy. I haven't checked for roots yet. Should be interesting to watch the difference in the tops vs. the lower limbs as for success rates, growth, etc. Working on that full flat canopy so I can flip as soon as the Auto's are ready for the chop. Planning on up sizing the 5 fems to 3 gal. pots after a couple days of recovery from stress.

Excellent work @Jason!
The clones all look good too, fingers crossed for roots any day now.
Your photo plants are going to be pretty big by the time they go into flower, you may want to consider 5 or 7 gal pots/bags if you have them.

Thanks guys! From now on I plan to grow autos in 2 gallon pots start to finish instead of one gallon. Sunshine, I will be going up in pot size again later, although I need to get more soil first. I've heard its best to upsize gradually. Do you concur? It would be a lot easier to go straight to a 5 or 7 gallon. I do have my five 3 gallon pots ready to go but I wouldn't mind skipping this middle step of upsizing if it is not really worth the effort. Thoughts?
