I had one more seed of this strain laying around...and EVERYONE loved this strain. I'm super excited to grow it again! There's nothing that comes close in terms of smell and flavor. I think I had a good yield of it last time....hoping I can meet or beat that! Was a great all around smoke. This seed is probably a year old at this point...she popped in about 4 days. So far she looks healthy....putting on some height. I've got her planted pretty low in the netpot to try and decrease the time it takes for the roots to appear below the net pot. We'll see how she goes...last time she went 70 days. I'm expecting about the same.

Looks good I think I might follow along. Tasty smoke you say eh? The tastiest I've had are auto-glueberry and a photoperiod Blueberry, both had the most intoxicating smoke, so I'm looking for something equally special. Good luck.

@@@Chi_Town_White_Boy, howdy, Well I'm going to have to put it on the list. That's actually the biggest problem with Autos, you want to grow everything ;¬)

tl;dr Autos are more fun.

my Auto-Glueberry, was from Dutch Passion, so all I can say is the ones I've tried which was that one and a Blueberry photoperiod grown outdoors from a place called marijuana-seeds in the Netherlands. And I can say that the Auto Glueberry I grew that had the same chocolate minty, beefy, complex delicious taste as the Blueberry, but it got banished to the garden. (it's all in the grow) However I have two beans left and that will definitely be in the next grow. Maybe all the strains with the word 'blueberry' in it have this quality. I do not know, I can only say what I've tried.

I used to grow photoperiods from clones 20+ years ago, pretty well the same as I'm doing now but with HPS, instead of LED. For me Autos have been an absolute game changer. The biggest pain in the ass for me with photoperiods was the 12 hour dark period, it's so annoying.

To not have to care about the light which also means it can be in an open room meaning I can make it really minimal and simple. I can start seeds and put them in the room at any time. All in a tiny little space because they're autos. That's my take anyway.

I'd like to do a photoperiod for fun where I grow it as long as I need to to train it into some sort of bonsai a foot tall, but at the moment I'm happy to experiment with autos. I want to try growing three plants out of one of my hydro pots. So the total size is equal to one big plant, I'm thinking about it. I might have to wait until I come across something that will work. Or I might just do two at first.

For me vaping has also been a game changer. Not actually smoking the material, just vaping off the volatile oils means the entire concept of taste from badly cured buds doesn't matter. I knew my glueberry from the garden was going to be a winner when I clipped a fresh bud off and cut it up and dried it in an over on 80C for 40mins, and I could instantly taste all the wonderful classic blueberry flavours. Imagine that putting a fresh chopped bud in the oven for a quick dry must be about the very worst think you can do to make the most horrible dope to smoke. But stick that in a vape that is purely convection only and it's not very far from the finished product.

I am currently working on new ways to cure my dope because I think this fixation on making buds look pretty, is the wrong way to go for me, that's for sure. Now I will crush an ounce of cabbage, into the size of one of the old film canisters. You know the ones that would hold a roll of 35mm film. I've just tried it and while it doesn't look as photogenic as a pretty bud with all the lovely trichomes falling off, it smokes better and gets you more ripped because you losing nothing, you don't see the trichomes any more because they are all soaked into the buds.

And Autos are really so much fun to grow. I haven't even grown one and let it do it's own thing yet. My aim is to get the plant as good as I know it can get, without using any additives at all, then and only then will I be in a position to do more testing. I don't even have any trick lighting, like UV or Far Red in the 730nm band. Best to see what a plant can do without that first otherwise you never know.

@Freddd, the lemon is amazing! Probably the best smoke I’ve ever grown. I mentioned to my buddy I was doing another batch of it and his eyes lit up :heart_eyes: I don’t know why it took so long for me to grow it again :man-shrugging::skin-tone-2:

Auto-glueberry is from FastBuds, right? I’m growing their Zkittlez Auto right now and it smells literally like skittles. Probably most trichomes coverage of any plant I’ve grown, too, which surprised me.

I have to grow a blueberry. What do you think about autos vs. photos? I seem to get healthier, more resistant plants with photoperiod - and it seems also a better smoke. I don’t know why, but any thing that grew as a photo for me seemed to be a better harvest and smoke (my blue dream seed bag said Auto, turned out to be photo). Curious what your experience has been...
