This was a good week, with plenty of sunshine. I still supplement light in evenings despite the spectrum not being right for bloom (6400k cfl).

It is very interesting to see the difference between the plants:

The two plants that were planted a couple of days early got less benefit of supplemental lighting are substantially smaller than the rest

The UK cheese plants are bigger than I expected and keeping pace with the Criticals despite being a strain that is specced to yield much less. Their lifecycle is short and may be ready for harvest in 2-3weeks. Will consider starting flush in 7-10days after monitoring trichomes.

Increased the bloom nutrients due to early signs of nitrogen deficiency.

Very happy with this grow!

Grow Questions
smurgrow week 1 started grow question 4 years ago
For an outdoor auto grow does it make sense to move the plants during the day to maximise direct sunlight (8h vs 12h) or is it better to leave them undisturbed. better to keep plants under a basic light setup eg 85w 4750 lumen cfl up to 100cm from light during veg stage?

Other. Harvest - Drying
OutForReal answered grow question 4 years ago
Yes it makes sense , I have this problem myself and I can't move them ( stealth grow ) so I loose direct sunlight and a bit of energy. During veg if you can put them out during day time and inside during night time ( under the FL) it would be perfect to maximise the autos grow :v::skin-tone-3:
smurgrow week 5 started grow question 4 years ago
When a breeder quotes an estimated range for yield what assumptions do the make:

1. Is the quoted yield based on wet or dry weight
2. Is the range based on standard growth or do the high end numbers typically assume advanced training techniques, supplemental lighting etc.

I never read the Yield esteminations... Because, i dont really understand them^^ i look at seedfinder.eu and read what ppls wrote there, sometimes its teh same text like breeder, but most time there are personalized comments / texts. For me yield is no point for the decision to buy them. I look here at gd how the most of it come out, how difficult they are. how resiliant they are is for me one of the biggest points. I would always recommend you to buy from respected breeders. Maybe they dont have such fancy names or packages, but the Plants have good and stable genetics. This is how i do it, i see a strain, look on seedfinder.eu and here on gd how they are to grow........ and in i have doubts i dont grow it. As you can see in my grows i have prefered Breeder. And i would always go with them , because the Customer service is a very important point to me too. If you have problems, someone who helps you or send you new seeds. We can talk per PM for giving you some Names of good Breeder. i dont want to do it here

Good week! I'm not sure about who is who in your pictures. I'm assuming the taller one is the cheese? Anyway the last 3-4 pictures show a plant that is a lot closer to being ready than the first pictures.

I think you should do a little reading concerning your idea about needing more nitrogen. Think about the purpose of nitrogen and what your plant is doing right now.

Increasing your bloom nutes will give you flowering benefits, but its purpose is not to add a lot of Nitrogen. Your plants look super healthy. I didn't notice any signs of nute burn. You could probably increase your bloom nutes to get more yield. Are you feeding at full strength?

@Quexos, awesome thank you! this helps a lot. I'll admit to being a bit obsessed with my girls :sunglasses:

@smurgrow, You certainly do your homework! I wouldn't worry about the yellowing leaves. Your plants will start to fade as their lifespan reaches the end. That fading includes lower leaves yellowing and dropping. It's normal. Rignt now your plant's entire focus is on the flowers. Increasing your bloom nutes will give your plant an extra boost to help flowering.

Your range of dosing for bloom nutes is 2-5ml and you are feeding 1.5ml?

Oh yes they are well into bloom now and looking in great shape :ok_hand:

Just going of the pictures I would say these still have a minimum of 4 weeks possibly 6 more week's until finished. They are only just really starting to form there structure now, plenty of time left to pile on the weight :+1:

Definitely more than 2 weeks left my friend :facepunch:

I'll keep dropping in as you update mate :+1:

All the best :v:

@smurgrow,

I'm in the same boat my friend with a 56+day Dinafem Blue Cheese Auto that is making it known she might be better off closer to 80+ days rather than the estimated 65-70.

I am always curious with new plants whether they are taking longer due to stress or just doing their own little thing.

Excited to see how your lady develops in the next weeks :)

Have a great day
