Nutrients

This is what I fed her after day 35 or so. Was easy on nutrients until she started flowering as the Great Lakes Water Only soil I was growing in is full of good stuff already. I ended up causing a probable nutrient lockout before that and she suffered some discoloration to her leaves that stayed with her through to the end, but that had nothing to do with this stuff, which I think carried her across the finish line.

GHE

If her root bulb is any sign this stuff is amazing! This little plant, recommended and bred for 2.5 gallon pots in a SOG filled an entire six gallon pot! As this is my first grow, I don't know what all of the contributing factors are, but this was certainly one of them.

Only used a tiny bit of the P/K as I had a probable nutrient lockout and overdose due to listening to a guy at a store rather than reading the feeding schedule from the manufacturer. I'm sure it works well.

Day 58 - First Grow. First plant. 272.16 Grams I dinged her up pretty good around days 35-40 or so, which were pretty crucial days in a 55-60 day plant, but it seems like the damage was primarily cosmetic as she came through with what seems to me like a whole lot of bud, that looks pretty good up close. Most of the damage seemed to have been to her fan leaves*, and all of those were still supple and looked good on the bottoms, so there was still some good action happening inside her. Her wet weight (With stems) is 272.16 Grams. I don't know how much they weigh, but my hope is to get 1.5 ounces out of her. I'm fairly certain that I'll get more than 1oz. For a plant with a claimed harvest of 30-60 grams, I am a happy camper for a first timer. I'll do better next time! This gal is about a week older than her sisters in the grow, and most of the worst mistakes I have made have been with her, so onward and upward! She's drying now, with most of her sugar leaves attached and a tiny bit of fan leaves hanging off of her to slow her dry. Our RH is in the 20s and 30s right now and it's hard to keep up so slowing down her dry is critical. She's in an 18x18x24 inch moving box. Some holes poked into the sides, hanging from some paracord. (She was so heavy I wanted 550lb test line har har etc.) So now we wait and watch her dry out. Will read more about drying and make sure her conditions are as optimal as they can be.

So basically I'M IN. This is a thing I can do and not get bored. Every step is interesting and I'm constantly trying to figure ways out to make thing easier and better. I'm an obsessive tinkerer and optimizer and this is one more thing that has nearly endless putzing around potential. My goal, after this full grow is harvested, is to go through my whole process (Was well documented) and cut out every dead end and mistake, and creating as simple a grow plan as possible. Things like learning that nutrients are an endless rabbit hole for salespeople to send a newbie down, how not to panic and make big, drastic moves. How to wait a couple days and see before acting. It's a good general patience training exercise. I've come out of the first grow having learned about 30 things to never do again, and still managed to come out with what looks like a damned decent crop, so yay me, and yay people here on Growdiaries, /r/autoflowers /r/mephheads and /r/microgrowery who were instrumental getting me through this with some dignity. :-D

I'll update the harvest when she's dry and I've tasted a lil' sump'n.

After giving her the pre-cut haircut we were kind of amazed at how healthy she looked underneath her beat up top layer of foliage!
