Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

This is my very 1st harvest. As a beginner, I have abused these plants, any they just continued to grow. Really amazing. I have yet to try the plant. I'm letting it dry and start some curing. I also plan on fermenting some of it as well. I will report back with final weights, flavor, etc. I think they came out great considering I maimed the flowering autoflower mother that I cloned these two from.
SInce I have real issues with the odor where I live, I'm going to cure by sweating and then fermenting. Also, the wet weight below is after some drying and with all stems removed. The plant was dried enough where many of the branches actually snapped. So I might have dried too quickly, but I believe this will recover with the sweat.

Nutrients
GHE

The nutrient's from GHE worked great! As a beginner, they were easy. My only warning is with an auroflower, the PPM needs to be much lower than the GHE label indicates. I would recommend 1/4 strength.

I learned alot and got really good advice on GrowDiaries. This is a great, positive, encouraging and helpful community. Reading other diaries is a huge learning experience. Also, having this log to look back at for me and others has already proved useful and will continue to do so. A great experience!0

I'd really like some recommendations on pruning or thinning out these two cloned Tangerine Dream Autos. I read a lot that states I should leave them alone, but these two look very chaotic!

Have a look at my leaves that have turned yellow and red. I've search online and can't seem to find a similar picture. Is this normal due to late flowering in some plants? Is this a nute problem? If I add the needed nutes, will this clear up? What's going on?

Hi @BucketBrigade! I won't worry too much at this stage, your plant is ending its lifecycle, she's consuming every nutrients she can, and most of them come from the leaves. This is called "senescence", and its basically the process of deterioration with age. I hope you've been flushing for the last days, because I see many cloudy trichomes, meaning she's getting ready and harvest should happen in a few days. Depending on the effects you want, you need to get 80-100% of milky trichomes for an energetic high (more THC), or 15-30% of amber trichomes for a couch-locking high (more CBN/CBD). So in this situation I'd stop the nutrients, flush for at least a week with plain pH'd water, then enjoy the harvest :sunglasses:Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and good luck for the last days :facepunch:

Well thanks to your experimenting I now know that cloning a flowering auto does work. There is an evident loss in quantity but it does seem to work. Please update us with a smoke report. Also, do you mind posting photos of the root system? Thanks for your contribution to the community!!!

@Thegermling509, Have a look. I posted several photos. I tried to keep these plants small. If you have a look at my previous diary, you will see the parent they were cloned from. She was a monster plant and I needed these to be much smaller. These were actually cloned and grown in 2 inch grow cups to help limit their growth. Next time, I'll use agressive training. Also, these were dried agressively (beginners mistake) for a day before posting the wet harvest weight. The branches already started to snap. I expect the sweat/fermentation will help these cure properly.

Nice work dude! Just an FYI, I tried drying a sample bud next to my light (like yours) while it was running and it dried WAAAAAYYY too fast. My little branches ended up snapping within 48 hrs.... My real harvest I was able to dry for 4 days total before little branches were starting to snap and that bud turned out to be really fragrant (compared to the fast drying sample).

Learn from my mistake, the slow dry mixed with a nice month long cure really does make a difference!:grinning:

@PussyWagon6969, Thanks for that information. I had no idea!
Does it smell as they dry out of the tent? I placed them in the tent to deal with the odor that I appreciate but no one else does.

@BucketBrigade, yeah mine was a bit stinky out of the tent... though the smell seemed to subside a little bit after a few days but it’s possible I was used to it. Maybe try using the brown paper bag method? Inside the tent that might help protect it from over drying or using outside of the tent might help conceal the smell... sorry I feel like this is going beyond my scope of experience
