Growing it




Plant one came down at 11 ounces very happy indeed, the second one was squished in the corner and ended up with bud rot, totally down to me, only 3 ounces could be saved.

The smell is amazing, she was sticky as hell.

They are trimmed and in the drying rack.

So far so good :call_me_hand::call_me_hand::call_me_hand:

The Outcome
What's on the scales?
Bud wet weight
What's on the scales?

Is perfect for veg

This is a new light to me and it is epic.

The power is intense and easy use.

It seems to be growing pistols. Is this normal for such an underdeveloped plant.
It is an automatic

Welcome to the (disappointing) world of autoflowers, which flower once the reach a certain age, not size.
Once these pistils appear, flowering will start in earnest in about 2 weeks time.
Unfortunately, your plants will be rather limited in size and therefore yields will also be limited.
There is nothing you can do to stop this flowering process once it begins and this is why the first vegetive weeks of life with autoflowers are so vital to get some size to them, otherwise you end up in the situation that you are in, namely dwarf plants flowering.
They may still double in size, but even then your yields are not going to be huge.
I gave up growing autoflowers for good due to these sort of uncontrolable outcomes and will never grow autos again.
In future, stick to photoperiod feminized plants, you can control when they flower and then get any size of yield you would like.
Autos are really best left to hydro, big lights and experienced growers, feminized photoperiod plants are far more forgiving and far better suited to new growers in my opinion.
You can also save a lot of money, as photoperiod plants require less hours of lighting to produce a crop, rather than the months of 18 hours per day of light that autos need.
With photoperiod plants you need a short veg period at 18 hours then a couple of months at 12/12, meaning your electricity bills will be much reduced when compared to growing autoflowers.
Using a fairly typical 12 week cycle as an example........
Autos = 12 weeks at 18 hours = 1512 hours of lights on time.
Photo fems = 4 weeks at 18 hours = 504 hours, plus 8 weeks at 12 hours for a total of 1176 hours of lights on time.
Therefore, over 12 weeks you save 336 hours of "lights on time" by growing photoperiod plants.
I know which electricity bill I would prefer and whose "carbon footprint" is smaller!
Hope this helps, Organoman.

Hi all, I have had very slightly yellow tips on this plant for a while. She is mid week week 10.
Two days ago the leaves started to curl and the yellow has spread slightly. Last night I flushed her with PH water and have dimmed the light slightly, anything else I can do :call_me_hand:thanks

Quite simply, the yellow tips is burning from feeding too much or too often, or both.
The solution is simple......

Hi there. You haven't been heavily feeding nutes which is good because an auto doesn't like strong feeds. Because of this you will prob only need to flush for 3 to 7 days at the most.
Goodvibs week 12 started grow question 8 months ago
Your thoughts would be most Wellcome please.
I’m looking for an up high from this grow as little couch as possible, she is a california kush, coming to the end of her 12 week.
I added pictures of a few different buds.
Leave or chop is the question.
Thanks people :call_me_hand:

Hey buddy

If you want a up high , you have to chop when the trichomes are 90-100 % milky , doesn't matter what strain but if your grow sativa then you get a up high anyway.

Nice plant man :grinning::muscle::beers:

Hi there
Do you cut up your big buds when drying them or do you leave them whole.
Photo is not mine :rolling_on_the_floor_laughing: although I wish it was :call_me_hand::call_me_hand::call_me_hand:

Depends on my drying environment.
My indoor I will keep them as is because I have a temp/humidity regulated drying tent that I can keep at optimal conditions. And I like the look of big buds!!!!
But my outdoor I hang in my shed which has temp/humidity fluctuations and is more prone to bud rot so I break them down or I will bend each node out.

Happy Growing
