I think I made a huge mistake with the green crack. What I thought was over feeding was 100% underfunding and was not helped by a mid flower flushing. After trying to get on top of the deficiencies I think I was too late. The took forever to finish. Total of 18 weeks and I still feel like I cut too soon. Out of 10 seeds only 5 sprouted with 2 being slow to start and with a few deformities.

I think whatever you are doing has worked perfectly! Don't be afraid to top autos though, it is possible but will add a few extra weeks to your timescale.
Ganjman88 week 12 started grow question 5 months ago
These auto flower strain say roughly 8 - 9 weeks seed to harvest. I'm week 12 in and finding only a few amber tricombs on each plant. Shall I hold on another week or maybe 2? Worried as they are getting super yellow and dont want that to effect my buds

Hello,your buds looking really dense,congrats.Let me tell you two things :

1)That yellowness spreading over the plant is caused by an unintentionally flushing mistake.I know it because I've made it myself before,many times :). When you start feeding them with those bottled fertilizers early in their life,they get addicted to it and asking for it again.Later on,you get some salt build-up in your soil,you don't notice it because everything goes quite perfect.But at the end of flowering period,you want to flush it and right after flushing,leaves starting to yellow then brown,getting crispy and the plant loses its leaves.Because, generally , the amount of water used for flushing is not enough for the plant to absorb all the left nutrients in soil and it gets nutrient burn.In your case,nute burn is not serious,no need to worry.That yellowing means,you've been flushing the plant but not giving and extra feeding solution to it and it started to drink from itself,from its leaves.When all left nutes in soil are absorbed,plant trying to drink from its leaves.Nothing serious here.all normal.Look of the leaves and reading these lines surely stresses you but I'm going to say that ; this yellowing will make your fruits way smoother :) yes it looks like a problem but actually it will get you super smooth buds.Because it is actually not a bad sign.That one last effort made by the plant and will result well.

2)If you are looking for amber high,go for another week or so.But that West Coast OG looks ready.Possibly it is at the peak point of THC.I would chop it down because I want THC.Amber usually takes 1-2 week more. 8-9 weeks told by fastbuds,breeders do that to be optimistic.Just follow the signs

this is a really great first grow,congrats.wish you a happy and productive harvest
