Entering week 15, and i fed her a little bit of 20-20-20 fertilizer because it feels like she needs another 2 weeks before harvest. Only a very small number of pistils have turned orange but it seems like that she still have some weight to add on.
There is a small issue with her though, i daily spot leaves that have dark spots on them, which i am not certain as to what to make of.
I believe that during this week i will be seeing a lot of pistils turning orange!
A little side not that i have failed to mention during the past couple of weeks is that almost daily i have been eliminating side colas that didn't get enough light, in total I estimate that i have eliminated about 20 sub colas that were significantly under developed or did not receive direct led lighting!

Day 99 - Fall colors are emerging, loving the shades of purple that started to appear on her!

Day 100 - Reached the milestone of 100 days of growing! Nothing changed since last update!

Day 101 - About 10% of pistils turned orange so far! Today, was the day she received her very last feeding incorporated in her water. From now on, until the end its only pure water and 320W of led light for her!

Day 102 - About 15% of pistils turned orange so far! I've had to improvise in order to assist the main stem in supporting itself, so i've added a little metal stick on the side to push the stem back.

Day 103 - More support was added to a couple of colas that needed it! I am continuously amazed by how much she has progressed while controlling for height keeping it around 30 cm high! :)

Grow Questions
Homegrown_Mary week 7 started grow question 2 months ago
At which stage of flowering should i change to a bloom fertilizer? Currently "flowering" period has just started 2 days ago and it will need about 7-8 weeks until to be ready for harvest. At which stage of flowering is nitrogen not needed at all anymore?

SpinnerCaribbean answered grow question 2 months ago
Hello! Well Nitrogen will be needed during the whole life cycle but the amount isn't the same in veg / flowering and late flowering do the only moment you don't need nitrogen anymore is when you will flush your plants just before harvest. So in veg and early flowering ( the 2 first weeks) they require more an higher amount of nitrogen than in middle and late flowering and that is why the bloom nutrients also contain nitrogen. So to answer your question you will need to decrease nitrogen at the end of week 2 and slowly increase the P and K. I hope it will help you :grin::v::skin-tone-3:
Homegrown_Mary week 10 started grow question 1 month ago
is she suffering from a deficiency or abundance of nutrients?

Hey the HGMary, you've got burnt tips - a tell tale sign of nutrient burn :fire: in case you're wondering what to do , flush by watering until run off then add 20% more water, and squeeze out excess water by squeezing the grow bags . You can cut the nutrients by half and still get good results ! Hope this helps ! :rocket:
Homegrown_Mary week 14 started grow question 2 weeks ago
Do you think the yellowish leaves are because of nutrient deficiency, a nutrient burn, or just her fall colors?
Leaves Leaf Edges Appear Burnt

SpinnerCaribbean answered grow question 2 weeks ago
We can already say it isn't her fall colours ( senescence ) because the yellowing would not come with burn tips/leaves ( check out my blue dream diary , I have scenescance without the burnt ) and a scenescance would have been different , the yellowing would have been on the older leaves first which is not your case. The same for the nutrient deficiency , it would have been from yellowing from the bottom to the top for a mobile nutrient def ( in your case it can looks like a potassium deficiency but it isn't ) or on the new leaves for a immobile nutrient deficiency ( iron, zinc , ect) . So the only solutions that remain are the Nutient burnt and it looks like that in your case , with burnt tips on a perfectly healthy plant OR the light too close from the plant causing this ( 10 cm is low ) so if I were you I would up that led a bit and low a bit my nutrient input :blush:

@GoodCBD, yep 15 weeks its pretty long for an autoflower i think too, but given that i grew again the same genetics i do believe the pot size determines for how long she will be in vegetation stage, the previous grow was in a 2 lt pot and vegged for only 3-4 weeks while this one which is in 5-6 lt pot she vegged for 5-6 weeks :) I am not complaining though for the duration of the growth because the more she needs to harvest the bigger the yield. I would love to try again in the future the very same genetics in a proper grow room in a 100% controlled environment and having the nutrients that i would love to have and not the nutrients i could find. i do believe that if i get all the conditions right, these genetics can yield great results both quantity and quality wise :)
