All is well and the plant is thriving. She is very very healthy and is requiring quite heavy nutrients and she desires a lot of cal mag.

I am having to constantly defoliate her but I will defoliate her heavily one more time and stop.

It is very interesting that it took her 10 weeks to flower on her own.

Because of her massive roots, I can’t even fill in 5 gallons without almost drowning her but she gulps it down within 4-5 days.

So far I am glad I didn’t kill her but she is just taking way too long.

Grow Questions
MaryJaneUSA week 10 started grow question 3 years ago
Wait or Kill?
Should I give another week to see if it'll flower or should I start new? This plant may be a photoperiod.

Dont KILL HER ,she looks Amazing, you can try puting her on 12/12 Light Cycle ,wait for 10 days to see the white hairs, if you only have one tent,you can just put her outside every 12 hours , it may not help anyway because she is an Auto and she will get into flowering when she feels like it :D ,you will get some Monster yield from her

Auto not flipping to flower.
She switched to flowering on her own at Week 10. I am currently at 20/4 with lights. Has this happened to you before?

Yeah I have learned that when you train and do heavy defoliation on autos it prolongs their veg. I noticed that if I cut the light to 18/6 they usually start flowering about a week after. The good news is yours is in flower now so she is on her way! Good luck finishing her up!

Yield?
How much yield do do you think she’ll produce? I am estimating 6 oz.

If your numbers are accurate on the light height then this is definitely a light burn/heat stress issue dude. If the rest of the numbers are accurate, this is the only potential reason. Those leaves are crispy as hell and burnt to shit from that SF2000. If you can raise that light another 8" you should be able to mitigate any further burn. You'll need to for sure because you've still got a good half of the flowering cycle to go. Don't think there will be any overt impact to your plant during the rest of flower but the current leaf damage will obviously remain.

....and having now read your weekly comment and understanding that moving the light up isn't an option - my best advice would be to start bending over some of the taller colas with HST - about 8" down on each one where you can. If bud weight will already be a problem then yo-yo the now lower tops to keep em supported horizontally. You still have enough time to do this and it may ultimately not prevent more of the light burn that you're seeing to the leaves. It will however, at least keep the buds themselves from getting torched over the next 3-4 weeks even if the leaves do end up suffering. If it's any consolation, your plant growing too big for the grow space (IMO) is always the best kinda problem to have:wink:. Good luck with it dude:+1:

@BoricuaGrower, I added a Peltier cooler on the back of the bucket and a temperature probe and adjuster to keep the bucket cool

@BoricuaGrower, well it’s just a bucket and I customized it myself but they do have some good set ups !

I should of said as well , the more you defoiliate or top the longer the veg cycle , I use supercropping , it’s non destructive and if you look at my Jack herer diary - fruitful without prolonging the veg . Nice plant btw make sur3 you get enough pk in 4 th week , and lower the base nutrients , happy growing :+1: ps go back to 20/4 it will be quicker , and have you got a fan in there for a breeze ?

@BigDaddyK, thanks s9 much mate. I had no idea it prolonged in auto flowers if you defoliate heavily, she was getting so bushy the light would not penetrate through. I will go back to 20/4 and thank you for your compliment! Currently I’m on AN Sensi BLOOM Part a and b but you’re right I am lacking in something. I do have two fans on the bottom facing up.
